Michael Beale backed to accept Rangers offer after source reveals twist today - Agbonlahor
Michael Beale will not turn down the opportunity to return to Rangers as manager, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker suggested it could be Beale’s last chance to land a “big job”.
The 42-year-old has impressed in his first senior managerial role at Queens Park Rangers this season and turned down the Wolves job last month.
Sources told Football Insider earlier this month (12 November) that the Londoner was the Gers’ first choice to replace Giovanni van Bronckhorst if he was sacked.
Rangers confirmed earlier this week (21 November) that Van Bronckhorst had left the club after his side fell nine points behind Celtic in the first part of the Scottish Premiership season.

“I think Michael Beale will take this,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“Ever since he rejected Wolves, his results at QPR have been very poor.
“He might look at it now and think ‘Is this my last chance to get a big job, I know the club inside out from when I was there with Steven Gerrard’.
“I think it would be a great appointment and he can’t turn this down.”
Beale spent over three years at Ibrox as part of Gerrard’s coaching staff before following him to Aston Villa last year.
He has also spent time working at Liverpool and Chelsea’s academies as well as Brazilian club Sao Paulo.
