Rangers senior man may exit Ibrox days after arrival, PL club interested in swoop - report

Stoke City boss Paul Lambert wants newly-appointed Rangers Under-20’s coach Stuart Taylor to join the Potters as assistant manager, according to a report.
The Daily Record claims that Lambert wants to reunite with Taylor – who served as assistant at Wolves – after being appointed as Mark Hughes’ replacement at the Bet365 Stadium on Monday.
Just last week, Taylor was appointed by the Gers on a short-term deal to replace Graeme Murty and work alongside Billy Kirkwood and Peter Lovenkrands with the development squad after Murty was promoted to first-team boss until the end of the season.
It is understood that Taylor may now exit Ibrox just days after his arrival as Premier League side Stoke line up a swoop.
Gers senior man Taylor has spent time as a manger in his own right with Limerick City in the Republic of Ireland and also spent four years as first-team coach at Hamilton.
Football Insider verdict:
While it isn’t the best timing for Taylor to potentially be moving on, it would be difficult to stand in his way of a move to the Premier League on a long-term deal when he’s only contracted to the Gers until the end of the season. Taylor and Lambert have a long-standing working relationship and it is likely that the former Airdrie and St. Mirren midfielder would want to renew that – and take on the added responsibility of being Lambert’s assistant. With Rangers waiting until the summer to make any long-term decisions on coaching it wouldn’t be a huge shock to see Taylor head to Stoke.
In other Rangers news, this international is expected to undergo a medical with the Gers on Tuesday.
