Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton has thrown Tony Pulis’ name into the ring to be the next Rangers manager after he was sacked by West Brom on Monday.

The Baggies announced on their official website that Pulis had his contract terminated by the Albion board following the 4-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday that saw them slip to be within one point of the relegation zone.

Although Sutton, who has been somewhat of a windup merchant for the Light Blues, doesn’t believe the Welshman would be in-demand at Ibrox for his ancient style of football and his poor form in the West Midlands, he still thinks it would be a decent move for the managerless Glaswegians.

“He may not be a popular choice but Rangers could do a lot worse than go for Tony Pulis,” he said on his personal Twitter account.

Rangers have been on the hunt for Pedro Caixinha’s for almost four weeks after the Portuguese boss was sacked in October.

West Brom’s manager search could now potentially impair what the Gers are trying to do with the Scottish Sun reporting that Derek McInnes is wanted at both Ibrox and the Hawthorns over the weekend.

Caretaker manager Graeme Murty was unable to win the elusive third game in a row on Satuday after a shambolic home defeat to Hamilton.

Since then, Alex McLeish has emerged as the bookmakers’ favourite to be handed the Ibrox job.

In other Rangers news, Gers fans have raged on Twitter and called for the board to be sacked after Monday’s latest development.
