Former Rangers star Neil McCann on whether Stuart McCall should be manager, reveals who he wants back at Ibrox

Rangers FC Stands

McCann wants to see former Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat return to Rangers as a director of football.

Speaking to Sky Sports, former Rangers winger Neil McCann discussed whether Stuart McCall should be named manager on a permanent basis.

When asked if he’d like to see McCall kept on, McCann said: Probably not. If he had taken them up, I'd say he is the right man for the job but he had seven wins in his time in charge and that's not a sparkling stat.”

It is true that McCall failed to win promotion with Rangers, but the Light Blues were always underdogs in their play-off final tie with Motherwell. The former midfielder did well to get the club that far, only to fall at the final hurdle.

McCann also highlights his record of only seven victories, and whilst that may seem poor, McCall registered those seven wins in just 15 games - which is a better than 50% win percentage.

He also only suffered four losses, and it is just a shame that two of those came in the two-legged play-off final.

Speaking further, McCann suggested that he would want to see Dick Advocaat return to Ibrox as a director of football, following his exit from Sunderland.

Advocaat left the Black Cats this summer having kept the Wearside club in the Premier League, and being a legend at Ibrox, McCann wants to see him back in an advisory role.

This seems unlikely with Advocaat said to be keen on retiring from football, although the director of football role may appeal to him, being much less stressful and hands-on than a head coach role.
