Frank de Boer linked with summer switch to Rangers

Graeme Murty’s future at Rangers has been thrown into doubt after the club’s chairman, Dave King, revealed in a strangely timed statement that he wants a manager who “must be able to meet the unique challenges of managing Rangers and ensuring immediate success”.

King went on to say:

"It is a priority that we commence next season with the best appointment we can make and that we move forward rapidly.”

King did praise Murty, revealing that the current incumbent could be proud of what he has achieved so far. But, from the outside at least, it appears that the Rangers gaffer will not continue in his role past the summer, although you never know...2nd spot and Scottish Cup success could change things.

Back in October the 43-year-old was originally placed in interim charge of the Gers following the departure of Pedro Caixinha - a position which was then extended through to the end of the season.

Bet Victor have reacted to the fresh uncertainty surrounding Murty’s future by reopening the Next Rangers Manager Market.

Topping the betting is Frank de Boer, the former Inter Milan and Ajax manager who suffered the ignominy of losing his job at Crystal Palace just four top-flight games into the 2017/18 campaign - the shortest tenure (matches) in Premier League history.

The Dutchman has since been linked with a number of jobs, but for whatever reason has yet to return to the managerial arena.

The chance to start afresh with Rangers, a club desperate to return to the summit of Scottish football, will no doubt be a tempting prospect for De Boer who played for the Gers, alongside brother Ronald, back in 2004.

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill recently turned down the chance to manage Scotland, but finds himself next in the running at 8/1, alongside Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke, while Alan Pardew can be found at 12/1.
