Xabi Alonso or Gio van Bronckhorst.
I would love to see him back but talk is cheap with managers. Interesting article all the same.
EXCLUSIVE: Giovanni Van Bronckhorst says he was honoured to be linked with managing Rangers and would be interested in the job in future - The Sunday PostGiovanni van Bronckhorst last night revealed he’d be interested in managing Rangers in the future.www.sundaypost.com
People will turn there noses up to him because he’s st Johnstone manager and he’s not a big name like Gerrard but he’s proven so far he’s a good manager. He won two cups last year but he’s also lost both of his best two players and he’s still got st Johnstone doing well.

I'm not even joking. If we were still the same distance ahead of the filth then as we are now, they had an incompetent and stubborn headed manager in as they do now, I'd be happy to see us take the gamble. It would again show us as the leading club, being the pioneers that we are, would bring some football people that still need it, kicking and screaming into the 21st century... plus, I think she could win stuff. Imagine the meltdown when she did.Groundbreaking!
I felt for him at Hearts. He came in with sceptics and was unorthodox in his methods (some say forward-thinking) and was always fighting against the tide. He was often running blind regards to recruitment as well, he had a clear way he wanted us to play but the players never matched the template.
He will some day be a decent manager though, probably abroad in a lower tier foreign league.
Such was his uphill struggle to win the support of the Hearts faithful, at his lowest ebb he had a bender in the club shop and ended up wearing everything in stock at a presser:
Not our next manager but I think Kevin Thomson will be a future Rangers manager
I would like us to go for Graham potter. The lure of European football could tempt him.
I would also be happy with Michael Beale.
I agree with the Neil McCann comments. I would like to see him involved with our coaching staff in some capacity.
St Johnstone’s style of football under Davidson is awful to watch.
St. Johnstone play decent football, especially given their squad. One of the few teams to try to pass it in the league and play with width.
You've got to take into account they will have one of the lowest budgets in the league which limits them.
Certainly wasn't their tactic in the Euro games I saw, they played good football but got undone by the lack of quality.Not when I’ve watched them. They sit deep then punt the ball to o’halleron to use his pace. Their league results haven’t been great either
Good shout this.Van Bronckhorst for me. Already proven he can do it at Feyenoord, worked with Pep for a while at City and understands the nature of the demands of being at Rangers.
I'd like to know if he's put any of his tactical recommendations while commentating into practice. I think he was all for us dropping one of the back four and sticking on another forward recently when searching for an opener.Not our next manager but I think Kevin Thomson will be a future Rangers manager
I'd also love to get Gasperini from Atalanta but he'll be way out of our reach now actually surprised he's not been mentioned for the Newcastle jobDomestically I'd be looking towards Callum Davidson what he achieved last season was remarkable with what is essentially a bottom 6 provincial club if he kicks on again this season the board will be considering him.
A coach from Europe then for me Urs Fischer from Union Berlin he got them promoted solidified them as a bundesliga club and now has them playing European football in the conference league I'd get someone like Neil McCann on his backroom team like we have done with Gary mac to help with understanding scottish football.
Or you could say it as the guy who won two trophies last year for an average team in the spfl but I guess it depends on the narrative you want to set…Whoever the best candidate is. I imagine we can do better than someone with hardly any experience, and who manages a diddy team currently in 8th place.
GVB is a good shout , but is he realistic?Good shout this.
Beale/Defoe etc are mental shouts IMO. They aren’t Rangers managers, it comes down to far more than football knowledge.
Not 100% on the callum boat (as I spoke to you a few pages ago about) but you're 100% spot on, IMO peoples standard of manager is far higher than what we will realistically get , I could be wrong of course but our managers and that lots managers over the past few years haven't done much to prove me wrongOr you could say it as the guy who won two trophies last year for an average team in the spfl but I guess it depends on the narrative you want to set…
McLeish that took us to the last 16 of the Champions League that one and only time we've been there?This probably sounds wankier than I intended it to, but Davidson to me feels a bit like McLeish, and actually lesser candidates than him as well.
Despite what McLeish achieved with us, he always just felt a bit underwhelming as a manager of us and like we were selling ourselves short. I would feel that way if we went from where we are now to Davidson.
In recent years, we, and they with Rodgers have shown money needs to spend on a manager and that shambles is never far away when you go with a cheaper option.
