Former Rangers midfielder: I would love Ibrox return
Former Rangers midfielder Ray Wilkins has insisted he’d “love to help” the Gers as they continue to look for a new manager more than a month after sacking Pedro Caixinha.
Wilkins was at Ibrox between 1987 and 1989 and won a Scottish title and Scottish League Cup after signing from Paris Saint-Germain under Graeme Souness.
The former Chelsea, Manchester United, QPR and AC Milan star was inducted into Rangers’ Hall of Fame despite making less than 100 appearances for the club during his spell in Glasgow.
The Ibrox giants sacked Caixinha on October 26th after a disappointing start to the campaign left the Gers in fourth in the Scottish Premiership.
Wilkins believes there are a number of ex-Rangers stars, including himself, who would love to return to Ibrox and help their old “wonderful” old club out.

“And I’m sure there’s so many other guys, will be listening to this and he’d love to be back in there. We’ve got so many ex-Rangers out there that would love to help this club.
“These are guys who have seen it and done and want to do it again – myself included.”
Under-20’s head coach Graeme Murty has been in charge in the wake of Pedro Caixinha’s sacking and has won two and lost two of his four games in charge.
The former Scotland international is expected to remain in the dugout for the upcoming fixtures with Aberdeen over the next five days.
Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is the bookies’ favourite to succeed Caixinha and – if he is to be the next manager – could make his job much more difficult over the next week.
