Rangers fans are divided on potential return of Barry Ferguson

As we discussed earlier today, Pedro Caixinha is on the search for a new coach at Ibrox during the international break.

Set to interview candidates this week, he’s said to want a man in place by the time Rangers next play on April 1st, at home to Motherwell.

One of the names in contention is Barry Ferguson, one of the greatest players to grace the Ibrox pitch in the last 20 years. Making over 400 appearances for the club in two spells, Ferguson was a key part of success in the late 1990s and 2000s. He won a massive 15 major honours with the club, captaining them to many.

Despite that legacy, the news he is being linked with a coaching role at Rangers isn’t being universally appreciated.

An unsuccessful period as Clyde manager has put his coaching credentials into question. That, coupled with his dissent as captain under the management of Paul Le Guen, means that there are plenty with misgivings about his potential appointment.

There are fans more positive about it too, many feeling that his love for and contribution to the club over the last two decades more than qualifies him to join up as part of Caixinha’s staff.
