Ostersunds manager Graham Potter is the new favourite to be named as the next Rangers boss, according to the latest bookmakers’ odds.
BetVictor have Potter, 42, priced at 3/1 to succeed Graeme Murty in the Ibrox hotseat after chairman Dave King refused to show any kind backing for the stand-in manager, who was placed in charge until the end of the season after the failed swoop for Derek McInnes in December.
Cardiff boss Neil Warnock (5/1) is the new second-favourite after a shuffle in the market while Alex Neil (6/1) and Frank de Boer (8/1) are also still in the running.
Potter has been in charge of Swedish club Ostersunds for the last seven years, working miracles as he has lifted them up from the fourth-tier all the way to the top-flight, a cup win and this season has reached the Europa League knock-out rounds.
Against all odds, his side beat the likes of Galatasaray, PAOK, Hertha Berlin this term and even managed to grab a 2-1 win away at Arsenal in the round of 32 before going out on aggregate.
Football Insider verdict
A lot of Rangers fans may be asking ‘who is this guy?’, well Potter is a man who is in-demand at some Premier League clubs, with even Arsenal fans tipping him to replace Arsene Wenger as their manager in the summer. Potter has worked wonders at Ostersunds, doing basically the equivalent of taking Stenhousemuir to the Europe League inside just seven seasons. Rangers need someone who can provide stability and get the most out of players while working on a limited budget. Potter ticks all them boxes and fans will instantly regret any doubts about him if he was to be hired by King.
