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.
Helder Baptista, goalkeeping coach Jose Belman and Pedro Malta all move on, and Kenny Miller presumably will simply return to the senior squad and be available for selection on Saturday as part of the playing staff.
Johansson, who had been a surprise selection himself as the ludicrous ‘Local Assistant’ nonsense from back in the day (remember all that chaos?), has nevertheless gained enough popularity from his role and his general esteem from his playing days, and he is the one member of the old management staff we are happy to see stay on in his position. He also scouted Alfredo Morelos, albeit the Colombian’s form has currently dried up a little.
He will assist Graeme Murty on Saturday and we wish them both well in what will hopefully be a new and profitable era for Rangers.
