Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to urge the club to hire Paul Clement after he was sacked by Premier League strugglers Swansea on Wednesday.
The Welsh giants announced on their official Twitter account on Wednesday evening that Clement, 45, had been relieved of his duties at the Liberty Stadium after seeing his Swans side drop to the bottom of the league table.
We can confirm that the club has tonight parted company with head coach Paul Clement.

Clement was appointed in charge of Swansea in January of this year, and was just short of reaching a full 12 months at the helm in South Wales.
Now, Rangers could face a threat from the Swans as they hunt for a new manager, or, according to the clubs’ loyal supporters, they could make a move to bring in the former Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain coach.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

Paul Clement. A massive if. But if he was willing to come to Ibrox would he be a good fit for us and what we need right now? No doubting his coaching credentials. His managerial record not the best tho.

Reckon Paul clement will pop up as a target for Mark Allen that he will probably identify as well as the board having him considered at some point in the next week or two

Clement’s first job in management was at Swansea but he has a great deal of experience which would suggest that he could adapt to the pressure that comes with the Ibrox hotseat.
He may not be a ‘Rangers man’ that most people seem to want, but working at European giants like Madrid and PSG would be a huge advantage to the Light Blues as they look to end the search for Caixinha’s successor.
