Dave King has revealed that the next Rangers boss will have money to spend and that he must decide when to spend it.
The Rangers owner was quizzed about the financial help the new man at Ibrox will receive at today’s Rangers AGM, and said that money will be available, but he must decide if more is needed for January or the summer transfer window.
As reported on Rangers’ official website, King said: “The decision is whether he wants to work with what he has got for a while and go big in the summer or whether he thinks he might accelerate that and use some of it in January.
“We are more cautious in whom we are appointing but we are not going to be more cautious in supporting the manager with investment. We are going to back whoever we appoint, as we did with Pedro.”
Rangers have been without a permanent manager since Pedro Caixinha was sacked in October following a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock.
Graeme Murty has been in caretaker charge since then, and last night he achieved his best result so far, as Rangers resoundingly defeated Aberdeen 3-0 at Ibrox.
However, what King says indicates that a manager will come in time to buy players in the January transfer window – and that he would be supported if he felt he needed to buy.
Rangers have the chance to overtake the Dons into second place in the Scottish Premiership if they defeat Aberdeen when the sides face off for the second time in a week at Pittodrie on Sunday.
