Ferguson open to Rangers senior role

By Harvey Byrne

Rangers great Barry Ferguson has revealed that he would be open to taking up the vacant assistant manager role at Ibrox.

The Glaswegian giants announced the appointment of Portuguese manager Pedro Caixinha at the weekend as he took over from temporary boss Graeme Murty.

Caixinha has since revealed that he would be looking for an assistant with a knowledge of both Rangers and Scotland after former second in charge David Weir left with Mark Warburton in February.

Now, Ferguson would certainly fit that quota with 20 years at Rangers during his playing days alongside a three-year management spell in Scotland with Clyde.

The 39-year-old has told that he has not yet received any contact from the Gers hierarchy, but he would welcome the role if asked.

“Of course, I’ve said that before,” told Ferguson to BBC Scotland, as quoted by the Sport website when asked if he would be interested.

“That’s my club. That’s where I was from an eight-year-old kid. I spent 20 years of my life at Rangers.

“I’ve had no contact whatsoever. It is a club that means a lot to me.”

The Glasgow giants are currently looking to reshape their management as they look for a director of football as well as an assistant to Caixinha.

The board’s goal will be to return the club as title challengers to fierce rivals Celtic and they will be hoping Caixinha is the man to help them do so.
