Rangers tipped to hire 'new Beale' after John Terry reveal - pundit
John Terry would have to find his own Michael Beale and Gary McAllister if he was to become the new Rangers manager.
That is the view of ex-Premier League and England defender Danny Mills, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the prospect of Terry taking over at Ibrox.
A Rangers source told Football Insider (November 11) the 40-year-old is high on the club’s wishlist as they look to replace Steven Gerrard.
Gerrard and his coaching staff, including influential assistants Beale and McAllister, quit Ibrox to join Aston Villa last week.
“John Terry will get a chance somewhere at some point,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“For John Terry, it would be a great job, it would be a great start for him, a great opportunity.

“A lot of it would depend on his backroom staff. I know he’s been a coach, I know he’s been in and around Dean Smith at Villa for a number of years.
“But we have no idea what sort of manager he would be. We all can assume and we can all guess.
“If he was to get the job, he needs to do something very similar to Stevie G and have a very good coach alongside him, Michael Beale, and a senior figure, Gary McAllister, to help him through those early days simply because he doesn’t have his own experience yet.
“You can lean on someone like McAllister when you’ve got to manage up. That takes experience. There’s dealing with the media and all these other little bits.”
“Why would you not lean on someone with a bit more experience?”
