Journalist Shares Live on Air That Rangers Won’t Hire 43-Year-Old Manager

Glasgow Rangers are in the midst of a crucial search for their next manager following the departure of Michael Beale. The club’s hunt for a new gaffer has garnered significant attention, and there are several contenders in the mix. Journalist Alex Crook recently shared some insights into the ongoing managerial transition.

Among the candidates being considered for the managerial role at Rangers, Philippe Clement has stood out during the interview process. Kevin Muscat is also in the running, but Alex Crook made it clear that John Eustace would not be the next manager.

John Eustace, at 43 years old, recently lost his position at Birmingham City despite the team’s strong start to the season. Initially linked with the Rangers managerial role, it appears that he is now likely to take a break from the game.

Alex Crook provided the latest updates on the managerial front, stating, “It’s interesting because you were talking about John Eustace maybe being a late contender. I’m told the process has gone too far for that for any new contenders to be added, so it looks like he will miss out.”

He continued, “Philippe Clement, the former Monaco manager, Belgian, I know a lot of Rangers fans are quite keen to get him in, he’s a definite contender. And Kevin Muscat is still there as well, former Rangers player, he’s done really well in both Japan and Australia. He’s a bit of an Ange Postecoglou disciple, so it’ll be interesting to see how that one would go down.”

Scott Parker was also considered for the role, but Crook revealed, “TalkSPORT’s spoken to sources close to the former Fulham manager, and he’s taking a bit more time out, so he won’t be the Rangers manager.”

The search for the new Rangers manager continues to captivate fans and pundits alike, as the club seeks the right individual to lead them to success in both domestic and European competitions.
