Rangers fans on Twitter appear to be delighted with the idea of appointing Graham Potter as their next manager.
SkyBet have Ostersunds manager Potter, 42, priced as the 7/2 second-favourite to replace Graeme Murty in the Ibrox hotseat for the start of next season with it looking extremely likely that Dave King will restart the search for a new permanent boss that ended in disaster in December.
The Light Blues took well over a month before approaching Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes in the wake of Pedro Caixinha’ sacking, only for the Dons boss to reject Ibrox in order to stay at Pittodrie.
Murty was instantly placed in charge until the end of the campaign and started well in 2018, sparking talk of a race for the title with Celtic.
However loss after loss has wrecked his chances of getting the job on a permanent basis and now Rangers fans seem as though they have decided that Potter should be the next man in charge.
One Gers fan claimed that the 42-year-old could be the “next Bobby Robson”, while another claimed he is “exactly” what they need.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
much much better than what we have had, that wouldnt take much

Not sure if “the project” at Ostersunds was part of their success, will be interesting to see how he gets on moving to a club. Could be Warburton-esque or could be the next Bobby Robson…

I'd certainly be happy with him but no doubt we will end up with Stuart McCall

I think it'd be a very shrewd appointment, so that means he definitely won't be appointed lol

Potter has been in charge of Swedish club Ostersunds since 2011, working miracles as he has lifted them up from the fourth-tier, all the way to the top-flight and Europa League knock-out rounds.
Against all odds, his side beat the likes of Galatasaray, PAOK, Hertha Berlin this season and even managed to grab a 2-1 win away at Arsenal in the round of 32 before going out on aggregate.
In other Rangers news, a BBC pundit has claimed that the Gers will make an approach for this top-flight manager.
