Nicky Law: Stuart McCall returning as new Rangers manager would be 'fantastic'

Rangers midfielder Nicky Law admitted that he would love to reunite with Stuart McCall at Ibrox.

Rangers midfielder Nicky Law has told STV that his former Motherwell boss Stuart McCall would be a 'fantastic' choice to be the new manager at Ibrox.

Rangers remain in chaos off the field, and after manager Ally McCoist resigned in December, his replacement Kenny McDowall also resigned in January, but will serve a 12-month notice period.

A new manager has to be on the agenda for the summer, and one of the favourites for the job is former Rangers midfielder Stuart McCall.

McCall, 50, played over 250 games for Rangers as a midfielder during the 1990's, and acknowledged that he may be interested in the job during an interview with the BBC earlier this week.

Now, Rangers midfielder Law has told STV he'd love to work with McCall again having played under him at Motherwell - and also explained why he thinks McCall would be such a good appointment.

"It'd be fantastic," said Law. "He's a legend here after the great service he gave to the club as a player, and I've no doubts that he would do the same as a manager."

"I would say obviously whoever comes in, it's a huge job for whoever takes it over, it's a difficult job; there's a lot to do obviously on the playing side, but knowing his character, it's not something that would worry him - it's something that he would relish."

"He's got a great reputation for improving people, as he did at Motherwell. Not just myself, but you look at people who have moved on; Shaun Hutchinson and Darren Randolph, the list is endless, it's people that he has took and he's improved them, and they've gone on to improve their careers - and I've no doubt that he would do the same here," he added.

McCall has been out of management since resigning as Motherwell boss back in November, and is considered to be on of the frontrunners to be Rangers manager according to bookmakers, alongside ex-Bayern Munich boss Felix Magath and another former Rangers player, Billy Davies.
