TalkSport host Alan Brazil has jokingly claimed that Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock would jump at the chance to become the next Rangers boss.
In a light-hearted interview on the Sports Breakfast show, Brazil suggested that the 68-year-old experienced boss would want to become the successor to Pedro Caixinha at Ibrox after the Portuguese was sacked four weeks ago.
Rangers’ manager hunt has failed to have made any ground since Caixinha was shown the door, with caretaker manager Graeme Murty poised to continue in charge for Friday night’s Premiership clash against Dundee at Dens Park despite overseeing a hopeless loss to Hamilton last week.
Warnock’s managerial career has seen him take charge of a large number of English clubs and he is currently working wonders at Cardiff as they look to achieve promotion to the Premier League.
However that hasn’t stopped Brazil from suggesting that the ex-Leeds and Crystal Palace boss wants to move to Ibrox.
“He’d take the Rangers job – he’s a bluenose,” joked Brazil on his TalkSport show, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.
“He goes kayaking up north in a blue canoe.”
The talk soon moved on to Celtic’s 7-1 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night and Warnock took the chance to aim a dig at Bhoys-mad Brazil.
The Cardiff boss said: “You didn’t do so well in Europe the other night did you?”
To which ex-Scotland international Brazil replied: “It’s good to be in Europe!”
