Amoruso: This man should be next Rangers boss (not McLeish or Ferguson)
By Danny Wright
Lorenzo Amoruso believes that Frank De Boer is the right man to take charge of Rangers as their search for a new manager continues.
The 45-year-old, who spent six years as a player at Ibrox, was adamant that De Boer is the right man to take the club forward despite him enduring a torrid time at Inter Milan.
De Boer was sacked by the Serie A club in November 2016 after just managing a handful of games at the San Siro but Amoruso says that the Champions League winner is the man he would have over current favourites Alex McLeish and Barry Ferguson.
“I think Frank would be a good appointment for Rangers,” Amoruso said to the Sunday Post. “He is a great coach, with very specific ideas.
“It is true Inter Milan did not do well under his charge but do not think it was all his fault.

“Working there is never easy, plus the language problem did not help.
“I think we have to forget that time. For me, he is a very good manager.”
Amoruso won all the main trophies in Scotland during his time with the Light Blues. He lifted the Scottish league title on three occasions as well as three Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cups.
The former Fiorentina and Blackburn man did not play alongside De Boer at Ibrox as the Dutchman joined a year after he left to play in England in 2003.
However that didn’t stop Amoruso from giving a raving review about the former Ajax boss.
Rangers are without a manager since Mark Warburton left the club in controversial circumstances earlier in the month.
Graeme Murty has took temporary charge of the Gers since Waburton left but has only managed one victory in three matches.
In other Rangers news, the club could appoint a new director of football by Thursday.
