Rangers manager hunt descends further into farce with every passing day


Rangers look almost certain to be looking for a new manager at the end of the season but the reported hunt is becoming a bit of a joke.

According to Bet Victor, , the latest favourite is Ostersunds FK manager Graham Potter, the 42-year-old being named at 3/1 to take the reins at Ibrox this summer and is the latest in an ever-expanding list of names to have been linked with taking over from Graeme Murty.

After a playing career which included stops at Stoke City, West Brom and Southampton, Potter took his first steps into management when he was appointed as the boss of the then fourth-tier Swedish side Ostersunds in 2011.

Seven years on, Ostersunds faced Arsenal earlier this year in Europa League and came out 2-1 winners at the Emirates but lost the tie on aggregate to the Premier League giants.

With former Hamilton boss Billy Reid as his assistant in Sweden, Potter would have someone at his side who has strong knowledge of the Scottish game but the ever-changing list of names linked with the job is becoming something of a farce, with it seeming like every manager without a job – and many with – being named as possible candidates.

Over the last couple of weeks, Alex Neil, Frank de Boer and Steve Clarke have all been near the top of the odds table – highlighting that there really is no frontrunner right now.

With four huge games left between now and the end of the season for the Gers, there is almost no chance of any imminent decision, so as to avoid any distractions for the players as they try to secure second place in the Scottish Premiership.

Potter could very well end up taking the reins at Ibrox later this summer but with the Gers’ last fixture not taking place until May 13th, there are a few weeks – at the very least – before we discover who will be the next Rangers manager.
