It sounds a bit callous, but Ross Wilson should have had a shortlist in place weeks before Gio was sacked.

Shortlist should be no less than 3 (ideally 4 or 5) managers we've identified as being suitable, unless there's a standout candidate we just have to go and get.

These managers should all be interviewed, thoroughly. It's not an office junior post we're recruiting for - it's manager of Rangers ! We need to know their footballing philosophy as well as their thoughts on the current squad, possible transfer targets etc. Show them the first 20 minutes v Celtic during the 0-3 game and find out what they'd have changed for next time we went there. (obviously Gio's answer would have been "nothing!")

We need to get this one right so a proper, thorough process is required.
Totally agree with this. If there hasn’t been an appointment made by the end of the week, it’s a disgrace. A shortlist should have been drafted. Especially considering this sacking had been coming for months, there’s no excuse for not being organised.

He’s not my first choice but I will back him 100%. The board need to make sure he’s backed in January and the summer.

My fear is we will keep the core group of players again and expect Beale to work his magic and get them playing again. This team is stale and needs fresh blood otherwise I can see some difficult years ahead.
Some people are claiming this is all negative - I think many of us are just being realistic. There’s a difference.

Since Alex McLeish left 16 years ago only three of our managers have managed to beat them in 90 minutes.
So just under half of them since.

Le Guen 1 Loss 1 Draw
Warburton 1 draw 1 loss
Caixinha 3 losses
GVB 2 Draws 3 losses

I assume the expectation is that the familiarity of Beale will galvanise the dressing room in the immediate short-term.

We’ll (hopefully) rebuild from there.

The new manager will have to take at least 4pts from the yahoo league games and win one of the cups (which will likely mean beating them).

I would have gave him until the end of the season. He could just have had a bad season this term. Many managers have " a bad season" ! We gave Gerrard time after all.
I don't think that could happened really; if you've gone to games you would know there was a growing discontent or apathy about performances or in a desire to even see us play. It has been a mixed bag in terms of what was achieved last season, but this season Van Bronckhorst didn't even have a European achievement to rely on to keep in the role. The team was going nowhere; it was plainly obvious watching the team. Holding on would have had all the feel of delaying the inevitable.

We have a serious problem with overreaction in our support.

Michael Beale was offered the opportunity just over a year ago. He decided he wasn’t quite ready, which at the time I felt was the correct decision. We went on an excellent European run with a manager who couldn’t quite hack it day to day and Beale went and learned his trade as a manager and within 4 months is knocking back a Premier League job.

I get this board are currently underperforming but I don’t get the complete negativity for Beale. The amount of people I have seen mention 1 in 9/12 trophies - holy %^*&.

He could potentially fail but so could anyone. GVB was pretty much unanimous but he failed. Caixinha was a project and failed. Gerrard was a complete gamble and he succeeded eventually - there’s nothing concrete to guarantee success or failure with Beale.

The ferocity of some of the negativity is making me want to stop posting on here. It’s Bi-Polar bullshit and way, way over the top.

As bad as the f*cking Shettleston Harriers.
Lots of crash barriers posting.
Im getting a bit tired of those who will delight in both the success and any failures of the new manager

I have no clue how this will turn out but dress it up anyway you like.. the bottom line is Beale has done absolutely nothing in management. This is a massive risk the board are taking.
Which is relevant how? I'm curious why you highlight this, when it's already an established fact known to everyone anyway.

do you think maybe the board are on here in cognito to suss out who the fans want? That way ... when it goes tits up ... they can say he was the popular choice ... as i'm sure they will say about Gio.
Good luck if they’re trying to identify a theme on this thread B-)

Murty was appointed full time manager until the end of the season. Call it what you want but that’s not an Interim manager.

Permanent managers don’t get appointed ‘until the end of the season’ ffs.

Rangers have had 17 permanent managers:

Wilton
Struth
Symon
White
Waddell
Wallace
Greig
Souness
Smith
Advocaat
McLeish
Le Guen
McCoist
Warburton
Pedro
Gerrard
Gio

That’s it. End of story. Thank you and goodnight. FACT.

He was full time manager that’s a fact.

Whether it was a 6 month contract or a 6 year contract it makes no bit of difference.

Saying that’s a fact really doesn’t actually make it so.

You are completely wrong

Was Stuart Mcall our full time permanent manager as well then going on your thinking?

Doing the job full time until the club appointed a permanent manager. A bit like Stuart McCall in 2015.

Both were interim managers and aren't on our list of permanent managers.

Beale is done… announced before 4pm tomorrow.








*ITK specialist here, wait until it’s more or less done and put it out there. That’s how this ITK thing works eh?
I hope you're right, regardless of who it is.
I've worn out three mice so far by clicking refresh.

I've come round to the fact it's Beale, but surely no Thomson and McCann too f*cksake.
Im not so sure it's going to be him, according to the reporter Damesh on sky we haven't spoken to him yet and are still looking at other candidates.
Hopefully some guns have been jumped.

Can we financially afford to do this? Can we afford replacements of the standard we, the fans demand. To me it'll go one of two ways ... he'll do a "Fat Ange" and work a few minor miracles, in which case great ... or it'll be one big shit show.

We, the fans, need to get behind this and do our bit to help him achieve the former. The latter is not an option.

Fat Anges miracle has cost about £40m.

Not exactly a surprising miracle to be honest.
