Former Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer has emerged as the new third favourite to become the next permanent Rangers boss, according to the latest bookmakers’ odds.
SkyBet now have de Boer, 47, priced at 6/1 to become Pedro Caixinha’s successor after the Dutchman revealed that he would be interested in the job vacancy.
Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes remains even-favourite to become the next Ibrox boss while current caretaker manager Graeme Murty is second favourite (7/2).
The odds on de Boer to be the one to end the near-month long search for Caixinha’s successor have been slashed remarkably since his comments about a return to Ibrox.
De Boer has been out of work since he was sacked by Crystal Palace earlier this season, just four games into the Premier League campaign after he failed to even see his side score a goal.
The former Netherlands international once spent a short spell on the books at Ibrox as a player in 2004.
He has since dipped his toes into management with European giants Ajax and Inter Milan, before his infamous short-lived spell at Selhurst Park.
