Barry Ferguson Backs Sam Allardyce as Logical Rangers Manager Appointment

Former Rangers captain Barry Ferguson has expressed his belief that Sam Allardyce possesses “brilliant experience” and could be a sensible choice for the new Rangers manager position. Ferguson emphasized Allardyce’s ability to organize a team and manage effectively, providing insight into why the 68-year-old manager might be under consideration for the role.

Ferguson’s comments shed light on the attributes that make Allardyce a candidate worth considering. He stated, “One came to mind, and I seen him do an interview, Sam Allardyce. I know he is a bit older, but he can get a team organized. He knows how to manage and he has brilliant experience.”

Allardyce himself has indicated his interest in the Rangers managerial position. In an interview with the Daily Record, he expressed that it would be “an honor” to manage the Light Blues, suggesting his willingness to take on the role.

Ferguson’s endorsement of Allardyce raises the question of whether his appointment would be a strategic move for Rangers. However, it’s worth noting that there was a time when Allardyce heading north to manage the club would have been considered a significant coup. Unfortunately, that time appears to be long past.

Allardyce’s recent managerial history raises concerns about his suitability for the role. In the previous Premier League season, Leeds United sought his assistance in the hope of avoiding relegation. Still, despite their efforts, they ultimately went down after failing to win any of the final four games under his leadership.
