The three favourites for the Rangers job

6

The odds for Vitor Pereira &
Derek McInnes have dramatically dropped and the current Olympiakos boss has
become joint second favourite to take the helm at Ibrox with the Aberdeen boss. While they
are still 6/1 behind odds-on favourite Mark Warburton 1/6 the emergence of
the Primeira Liga & Scottish League Cup winners in recent times plants them
firmly in the race to seize the biggest task in Scottish football.
Alex McLeish, Stuart McCall, and
Ian Cathro have fallen away despite media reports strongly linking them to the
job, and it really does now look like the position is a three-way battle
between Warburton, Pereira and McInnes.
Warburton is technically a free
agent, after leaving Brentford over transfer disagreements, but Pereira and
McInnes remain contracted to Olympiakos and Aberdeen
respectively, while Pereira
faces being fired over speculated talks with Rangers over the Ibrox position.
His bosses were unkeen on these
reports, and Portuguese media claim he is about to lose his position, making
his appointment inexpensive – this probably propels Warburton and Pereira to
the front of the queue due to the compensation Rangers would have to pay
Aberdeen.
But ultimately it truly does make
Warburton justifiably odds-on as he is the only free agent as of now.

  1. Pereira or Warburton for me! We would need a top quality DoF alongside Cathro and I haven't heard any quality DoF's mentioned since Advocaat committed himself to Sunderland.

    I don't see us getting McInnes from Aberdeen and I don't want McLeish back, that for me would be a nightmare scenario. As for McCall he did not impress against Motherwell, (What is more, his results in big games with Motherwell were pretty awful).

    • Now that would be real turn up for the books if they brought Ally back as manager as he was useless.But then king might think about it not costing them any money.If he's going against fans wishes too pay off Ashley nothing will surprise me with him.

  2. Mcinnes is the man for me,he's done his apprenticeship with st johnstone,bristol city,and now aberdeen,he knows the game and does not tolerate prima donnas,this guy is a tough cookie and he will not take any crap from the media,how long has it been since somebody connected to rangers stood up to the press re the club and the fans.

  3. Slagged off lewis macleods scotland call up joined in were rest having a go stay at sheep mcinnes not wanted anyone but him or ally
