As we discussed earlier, a BBC poll had, bewilderingly, Ralph Hassenhuttl as Rangers’ fan-picked favourite for the Ibrox job, in a poll which has since, curiously, been removed from the BBC website.
Ibrox Noise was a bit dubious about these results, and we elected to run our own proper fan poll instead, and as we expected, the results were quite different.
We offered Gattuso, Hassenhuttl, Potter, Lampard, Davo, Muscat and McInnes as our options and of 1000 or so votes and counting, the early indications are that the BBC poll was way off.
In last place and no surprise, Davo with just 15 votes.
A whole bunch of names then show up with no real need to mention any of them until we get to the top 3.
In third place Norway’s Kjetil Knutsen with a modest 63 votes, in second place Graham Potter with 185 votes but miles ahead is indeed Kevin Muscat with an overwhelming 493 votes. Hassenhuttl was miles down.
This is all at the time of writing, these numbers are rising all the time (the poll wasn’t started terribly long ago), but what we know is that the people looking at the BBC content, since removed, were clearly not (all) Rangers fans.
The ones on Ibrox Noise clearly are, the vast majority anyway, and this shows it’s probably not valid to look at websites which cater for a general audience – as we say, the BBC poll has been since removed.
So it does seem Rangers fans favour Muscat, with nods towards Potter and Knutsen. And they really don’t want Hassenhuttl.
Do you agree with this? Is Muscat your man? Leave it in the comments.
