It’s the start of a new era at Rangers.
Philippe Clement was confirmed as their new manager on Sunday, becoming the club’s fifth non-British manager, after Dick Advocaat, Paul Le Guen, Pedro Caixinha and Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
The 49 year old Belgian has plenty of work to do!

Will Rangers win again?
On Wednesday night, Abdallah Sima was the only scorer as the Light Blues beat Hearts at Tynecastle.
This means the Gers have won seven of their last eight Premiership matches, drawing the other, although they remain eight points adrift Celtic, albeit with a game in hand, that’s coming up later this month.
Ahead of Thursday’s crucial trip to Real Betis, that’ll decide their Europa League fate, Philippe Clement will be hoping for a straight-forward victory over Dundee at Ibrox.

Rangers Scottish Premiership Odds
Following a close-to catastrophic start to the campaign, losing to Kilmarnock, Celtic and Aberdeen, the Gers are already seven points adrift the leaders, hence why the odds of them delivering 56 this season are a whopping 11/4.
Rangers Scottish League Cup Odds
With Celtic crashing out of the League Cup in the second round at Rugby Park, Rangers are the obvious favourites to go on and lift the trophy in December.
The Light Blues will face Hearts in the semis on 5 November, 22 hours after Aberdeen and Hibs go head-to-head in the other last four clash in Mount Florida.
Thus, neither the semi of the final, should they get there, will be straight-forward, but what an opportunity this is for Clement to pick up silverware straight away.
Rangers Europa League Odds
The last time Rangers featured in the UEFA Europa League, they got all the way to the final, knocking out Borussia Dortmund, Braga, Crvena zvezda and RB Leipzig before defeat on penalties to Frankfurt in Seville.
This season, they made the perfect start to the group stages, beating Real Betis 1-0 at Ibrox, before, led by interim boss Steven Davis, they were defeated by group minnows Aris Limassol at Alphamega Stadium.
Still, there’s plenty of time for them to turn the campaign around, faced with a double-header against Sparta Prague next, so if you fancy them to go all the way and win the trophy in Dublin on 22 May, they’re currently priced at 50/1.

After winning the 2021 edition of the Scottish Premiership, Rangers have had been stuck in the wilderness for the past couple of years.
Although the transition from master to pupil was not a seamless one. To get from number one to number two, it first needed the installation of Giovanni Van Bronckhorst and although he would take Rangers to the 2022 Europa League final, his managerial tenure would only last a few more months.
Managerial changes certainly disrupted Rangers’ bid to win last season’s league crown but that was not the only determining factor, as with the way rivals Celtic played under Ange Postecoglou it did not matter who was in the Ibrox technical area.
Of course, Postecoglou is no longer the man in charge at Celtic and this has breathed new life into the Scottish league scene. Rangers look like that they have improved on paper and will be ready to close the large gap between themselves and the Hoops.
While the last decade or so has been a rather tumultuous one for the blue half of Glasgow. Whether you believe this is a new iteration of a football institution or a continuation is up to you, but what is not up for debate is Rangers’ climb up from SPFL’s League Two.
A journey that was not seamless in terms of a treble of successive promotions and after embarking on their League Two journey at the start of the 2012/13 season, they would need another four years to get to the top of the league pyramid.
Even when back in the promised land of the Scottish Premiership, events at Ibrox were very much a work in progress and they would not even be able to immediately take up their previous role as part of Scotland’s footballing duopoly.
Another tough start to the 2023/24 season saw Michael Beale replaced with Philippe Clement.
