Report: Rangers will not rush into permanent managerial appointment

Rangers Gates

It seems that Rangers are not prepared to offer Stuart McCall a permanent contract yet.

Stuart McCall was appointed on a temporary basis in early March, and is set to remain in charge until the end of the season, and interim chairman Paul Murray has told the Daily Record that the club will not rush into a decision concerning a new manager.

McCall's main job is to secure promotion for the Gers, as they prepare for a play-off campaign having missed out on automatic promotion.

He has had a good impact at Ibrox since his appointment, and is well set to lead the Light Blues into the play-offs, and it should not be considered a failure if Rangers do not win promotion, considering the strength of the Championship, and their long-term off-field issues.

With their future not yet set in stone, a report in the Daily Record has confirmed that the current Rangers management will not be rushed into a decision regarding McCall’s future.

Quoted in that same article, interim chairman Murray admitted that the club want to take their time in the search for a new manager, ensuring they choose the option that is best to take the club forward.

“Concerning the choice of the new manager,” he said. “We want to take some time, and obviously get it right.”

If McCall can oversee the club’s promotion into the Premiership, it is likely that he will remain in charge next season, but it is good to see the new ownership are concerned with the long-term future of the Gers after their recent turbulent history.
