Edgar makes worrying Rangers manager claim

A Rangers manager claim has been made regarding the potential announcement of Steven Gerrard’s successor…

What’s the talk?

Gers insider David Edgar has played down suggestions that the club’s new manager will be announced on Tuesday (16/11/21). Heart & Hand are an official media partner of the club and presenter Edgar has denied speculation that a press conference has been scheduled.

He told the Heart & Hand Patreon podcast, via Ibrox News:

“You may have seen Whatsapp’s saying Rangers have a press conference booked, they don’t.

“Not to say that an announcement won’t happen, but I’d be surprised if an announcement came tomorrow [Tuesday].”

Should Rangers hire van Bronckhorst?

Frustration

The Gers have reportedly held talks with Gio van Bronckhorst over a deal to take over from Gerrard following the ex-Liverpool man’s move to Aston Villa last week. However, Ross Wilson is also said to be eyeing other, yet to be named, coaches for the role, which could be exciting news for Rangers fans to read.

Irrespective of any excitement that could come with the prospect of an unknown emerging as a serious contender for the role, Rangers fans will surely be starting to get frustrated at the pace of negotiations. After seemingly starting quickly with the talks with van Bronckhorst over the weekend, Wilson now appears to be considering his options and time is ticking down ahead of their semi-final clash with Hibernian on Sunday.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

Rangers have the opportunity to seal a place in the final of the cup on Sunday and are currently without a permanent manager in charge. Supporters will surely want to see a head coach in place in advance of the game in order to give the players added motivation to perform, along with a game plan befitting of the style the manager wants to deploy moving forward.

With an announcement on Tuesday unlikely, according to Edgar, it does make one wonder when it will come. Wilson has less than a week to get it wrapped up if he wants someone in the dugout for the Hibs match and that could make these next few days crucial in terms of the short-term success at Ibrox.

Having a clear plan in place could provide clarity ahead of the game, rather than having players play in an important match whilst they remain clueless as to who will be their boss the following week. This is why fans should be getting frustrated as the situation continues to drag out.
