'Clueless', 'Joke' - Rangers fans react to reported interest from international manager
By James Black
Australia manager Ange Postecoglou is reportedly interested in replacing Pedro Caixinha as Ibrox manager but Rangers fans on Twitter are having none of it.
ESPN claim the 52-year-old wants to take charge of the Light Blues when he potentially leaves the Socceroos after this week’s World Cup qualifying play-off with Honduras.
Postecoglou lead the Aussie international side to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil before taking the continental giants to their first Asian Cup in 2015.
Rangers are looking for a new manager after sacking Pedro Caixinha last month only 229 days after appointing the former Santos Laguna manager.
The Australian has no experience of British football and there doesn’t seem to be much to the link and Rangers fans are totally unimpressed with the suggestion, with one jokingly comparing it to him wanting a date with Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes is the bookies’ favourite to take over at Ibrox.
The Dons boss has been a huge success at Pittodrie with three successive second-placed finishes in the Scottish Premiership and the club’s first trophy in 20 years when they won the Scottish League Cup in 2015.
Graeme Murty is in temporary charge of the Ibrox giants for the second time in 2017 after also taking the reigns in February after Mark Warburton’s resignation.
In other Rangers news, an Ibrox legend was delighted to see Kenny Miller back in the starting XI.
