With Steven Gerrard departing Rangers to manage Aston Villa, one of the hottest managerial seats in Scottish football is vacant.
And we’ve taken a closer look at the bookmakers favourites to be the next boss at Ibrox.
? Ronald Koeman to Rangers odds plummet but is ex-Barcelona boss a genuine candidate for Ibrox vacancy?https://t.co/TdpAnN6T9x— Scotsman Sport (@ScotsmanSport) November 16, 2021
Dutchman Ronald Koeman has been slashed into second-favourite with the bookmakers to be the new number one at Ibrox in what would be a sensational move.
Having left Barcelona in October, Koeman has links to Rangers through their Sporting Director Ross Wilson, who he worked with when in charge of Southampton.
And there’s plenty punters who think Koeman could be Glasgow bound – he’s now just 15/2 to be the next Rangers boss.
Next Rangers Manager Odds (Prices from Paddy Power)
- 1/6 – Giovanni van Bronckhorst
- 15/2 – Ronald Koeman
- 15/2 – Frank Lampard
- 12/1 – Derek McInnes
Odds correct at 16/11/21
Giovanni van Bronckhorst
Former Ibrox legend Giovanni van Bronckhorst is the current favourite to replace Gerrard and the Dutchman would be a popular choice amongst the Rangers fans.
Having tempted Gerrard north of the border, could Rangers now tempt his ex-England team mate Frank Lampard to Ibrox?
Lampard enjoyed a successful spell with Derby County, guiding them to the play-off final before taking on the Chelsea hot-seat.
He led Chelsea to 4th spot in the Premier League in his first season in charge but was sacked early in his second season on the back of some disappointing results.
Lampard could view the Rangers job as an opportunity to put himself in the shop-window for a return to the Premier League but that may well be seen as a negative by the Ibrox chiefs.
If Rangers look closer to home for their next manager then Derek McInnes is bound to be on their radar on the back of the work he did in rebuilding Aberdeen.
However, McInnes did turn down the Ibrox job previously and it would remain to be seen how the fans would respond to his appointment.
