Would hot favourite managerial signing guarantee marquee January player signing?


With Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes the hot favourite to become new permanent Rangers manager, it could bode even better for the already promising looking pursuit of Pittodrie engine room man Kenny McLean.

McLean has confirmed he will not be signing a new deal next summer, and this has put Rangers on red alert to grab his signature, either on a low-cost deal in January, or for free on a pre-contract in the summer.

However, should his manager depart for the same destination first, it could near-guarantee Rangers’ next signing with McLean extremely likely to want to follow his existing manager to Govan.

Not only would McLean get the move of his dreams to a big club at last, but he would have familiarity in the manager, and of course, ex-team mate, Ryan Jack.

It is just yet another piece of potential good news which began flowing yesterday since the old manager was finally given his P45.

Rangers’ midfield has the makings of something decent, but the ex-boss mismanaged it abysmally and Rangers truthfully have seen nowhere near the best of either Jack or Dorrans.

Them managed properly in concert with incoming McLean would be a fine start to 2018.


  1. I said it five years ago when he left bristol city,instead we had mccoist who put us back five years,we have a board that are sleeping,2.5 for mexicans,we could have had walker mclean and moult for less than that.

    • Yeah he was great at Bristol City. Just like he is at Aberdeen…losing 0-3!
      He's not for us, look at him does he look like he could handle the pressure of the Rangers job…..no!

      McLeish is the only guy to grab this by the scruff of the neck now.

  2. Makes you wonder if mcInness and McLean heard through the grapevine this was going to happen and had a wee chat ��

  3. And we end up with an engine room of Jack & Mclean who couldn't lay a blow on Celtic when together at the sheep – No Thanks
