Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern will be disappointed with how their side had been playing before the international break, having suffered back-to-back defeats to Old Firm rivals Celtic and Kilmarnock.
The Light Blues have been beaten twice this season by Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership and that has prompted some to call the former West Bromwich Albion manager to take over the helm at Ibrox in the summer. However, Clarke has stated he is happy to remain in Ayrshire and is not ready to entertain such rumours of a move, admitting it was nice to be back in his London home so he did not hear about the links.
“One of the good things about going down south is you don’t get caught up in all the nonsense,” he told the Daily Record.
“The media like to say, especially when it comes to the Old Firm, you’re going to move here, there and everywhere. I’m happy at Kilmarnock, I’m happy with the job I’ve done so far and hopefully we continue that.”
While his Celtic links may do little to endear him with our resident Light Blues, it’s hard to doubt the fact that he’d be a good manager for the Gers. Having completely turned things around at Rugby Park, Clarke has surely enhanced his reputation and perhaps Dave King should consider a move.
Rangers fans in the Tavern will be upset with the news that Clarke has ruled out a move to their club, as many of our Gers locals have recognised he has done a fine job since taking over at Rugby Park. However, Graeme Murty has proven to be really rather popular at Ibrox, so it’s barely a crushing blow while the former Reading defender’s future is up in the air.
Rangers fans, would you like to have seen Clarke at the helm? Let us know below!
