Journalist Shares Timeline for New Rangers Manager Appointment

Rangers Football Club is in no hurry to announce their new manager ahead of their upcoming match against St Mirren on Sunday. The situation was discussed by Chris Jack during an interview on the Rangers Review YouTube channel.

According to Jack, the club is adopting a patient approach in their quest to find a successor to Michael Beale, who was relieved of his duties on Sunday, October 1st. He stated, “The Gers are ‘happy to take their time’ in appointing the successor to Michael Beale after he was sacked on Sunday (1 October).”

However, Jack also hinted at the possibility of developments in the near future, saying, “But he added that he would be ‘surprised’ if there’s not something ‘a bit more concrete’ in place by this time next week after a number of managers have been linked with the job at Ibrox.”

Despite the lack of urgency, Jack emphasized that there is no immediate rush to appoint a new manager, primarily because there is a two-week international break following the game against St Mirren. He noted, “There is no immediate rush for Rangers to get a manager in place because there is a two-week international break after the game against St Mirren.”

The Rangers board appears to be taking a measured approach, wanting to provide the new manager with ample time to familiarize themselves with the squad while avoiding hasty decisions. Jack explained, “Although the board would probably like to give whoever takes charge as much opportunity to work with the players as possible, they won’t want to make any rash decisions.”

Regarding potential candidates for the managerial role, there have been various names circulating in the media. Among them, Frank Lampard seems to be the frontrunner at this stage. However, with Rangers opting for patience in their search, nothing is set in stone.
