Graeme Murty may be left in caretaker charge of Rangers until the end of the year, but that doesn’t mean Dave King should be keeping his eye off the ball for the time-being.
Swansea confirmed on their official Twitter account on Wednesday that manager Paul Clement has been relieved of his duties at the Liberty Stadium – and the Light Blues board should make an instant move for the 46-year-old, regardless of what they have told Murty.
We can confirm that the club has tonight parted company with head coach Paul Clement.

Clement has overseen a poor run of form in South Wales that left Swansea rock bottom of the Premier League, but his coaching abilities and knack of getting his team playing football is not something that Rangers should miss out on.
The now former Swans boss has worked with a host of huge names in his career and knows exactly what it’s like to work in high pressure environments.
He has coached at Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, which would make the job at Ibrox a doddle for him due to his experience of working alongside Carlo Ancelotti at a series of European giants.
King and director of football Mark Allen have been completely at sea in the hunt for Pedro Caixinha’s successor on the blue half of Glasgow, but this should be a move that would be a complete no-brainer after stuttering over approaching Derek McInnes.
Get a deal agreed with Clement before the January window opens, and watch the 45-year-old revolutionise the faltering Ibrox giants.
