Rangers tipped to hold talks with 'top class' Terry as two-man wishlist revealed - pundit
Rangers could appoint John Terry as manager in a bid to continue the “young manager dynamic” introduced by Steven Gerrard, according to Noel Whelan.
The former Aberdeen striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the Rangers players could benefit from the 40-year-old’s “fresh knowledge and ideas”.
This site revealed on 11 November Rangers are considering high-profile targets including John Terry and Ronald Koeman to take over as their new manager.
A Gers source has told Football Insider that Koeman, who was sacked by Barcelona at the end of last month, and ex-Aston Villa coach Terry both feature highly on their wishlist.
Gerrard departed Ibrox for Premier League side Aston Villa yesterday, just weeks after quashing speculation surrounding him and the Newcastle job.
Whelan tipped the Rangers board to hold talks with Terry, who is yet to manage a senior side.

“He’s got more opportunity to learn his trade in the Scottish Premiership than he would in the Premier League,” he told Football Insider‘s Ewan Kingsbury.
“You have to start somewhere in your managerial career, as Steven Gerrard did. He put the hard work in to get them to where they are now.
“It’s still by no means an easy job. They will hold talks with Terry, I think the board will like having this young manager dynamic as they did with Steven.
“The players are also probably benefitting from having these top-class ex-pros at the club imparting their fresh knowledge and ideas.
“It’s down to the board and whether they believe he is fit to continue Steven’s hard work. It’s a very, very attractive proposition.”
