Could former Scotland international be a stunning choice as Rangers manager?

Last time Rangers lost their manager, the results immediately following his departure were hardly inspiring. A scraped win in the cup over Morton then saw two depressing league losses on our travels, first at Dundee, then at Inverness.

Interim coach Graeme Murty appeared to be struggling but the following fixture finally saw not only his first league win but Rangers’ first over St Johnstone in three years since Lewis Macleod’s header won it at Ibrox back in 2014.

Eleven (yes really) things we learned v Thistle

Yesterday’s fine win over a very solid Partick Thistle side was enlightening on a number of levels.

Naturally we should not take these overly seriously given it is an interim manager who is extremely unlikely to be given the job permanently, but nevertheless when it comes to food for thought, the 3-0 victory at Ibrox certainly gave some.

Ibrox Noise takes you through the things we learned:

Former Dutch champion emerges as new managerial contender for Rangers

With the last 24 hours, Ibrox Noise detailed how Rangers’ managerial search may have boiled down to Aberdeen chief Derek McInnes, former Newcastle manager Alan Pardew and ex-Man Utd boss David Moyes.

Within the past 18 hours, another new and surprising name has emerged to increase the intrigue of this managerial race, and make it anything but a foregone conclusion.

Rangers' manager search; a done deal?

Speculation has grown today that Rangers have chosen their new manager and the appointment is as good as a done deal, sources claim.

Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes is said to be the new manager, with Rangers reportedly paying the compensation required to sever the Dons chief from his contract, and the announcement seemingly being in due course.

Could Rangers consider 42-year old outsider?

When Rangers last lost their manager in February, fans rallied for the likes of Derek McInnes, Alex McLeish, Tommy Wright and even Uncle Walter to come in, steady the ship, and bring Rangers back to the surface.

As it turned out, the diabolical Pedro Caixinha was chosen instead, in a disgraceful piece of neglect and risk taking that has cost Rangers dearly.

A new beginning? Good luck to the new era at Ibrox

With ex-manager Pedro Caixinha’s diabolical Hispanic revolution now a thing of the past, today’s trip to Murrayfield to face Hearts takes on an all new complexion.

Caretaker manager Graeme Murty will be flanked by Jonatan Johansson as assistant and wholesale changes would be thoroughly welcomed for the first team.

It is worth bearing in mind though the last time Rangers parted company with a manager and Murty took charge, he kept mostly with the existing team. But with half of Rangers’ issues being due to the influx of struggling overseas players, Ibrox Noise proposes a starting XI for this weekend’s crunch fixture (are they not all) which might just give us the organisational steel needed.

Rangers should restore 63-year old axed ruthlessly by ex-manager

With goalkeeping coach Jose Belman exiting Ibrox along with the rest of his Portuguese colleagues, is there a strong case for a return for one of Rangers’ most loyal servants over the past 30 years?

Jim Stewart was one of the first casualties of the diabolical Caixinha regime, the reliable 63 year old Rangers stalwart whose duties at Ibrox were part of the fabric of the place, and he was as appalled as anyone at being cut out in the manner he was.

Rangers confirm surprise assistant manager

In a slight surprise at Ibrox, the predicted managerial replacement team of Graeme Murty and Kenny Miller is only half right, with the interim coach indeed making his way from the youths to take the seniors till a permanent manager is found.

But the rumours of Kenny Miller as his assistant were slightly wide of the mark, as Fin Jonatan Johansson keeps the role while the entire Portuguese management team is ousted along with Caixinha.
