Speaking to the Daily Record, Stuart McCall has highlighted his three biggest strengths, suggesting that they are vital for Rangers next season.
The current short-term manager said: “My three biggest strengths as a manager and coach are recruiting people, as I did here at Motherwell, getting the best out of people and improving people. That’s certainly three things Rangers will need next season.”
McCall failed to see his Rangers team over the line in the last few weeks, falling at the final hurdle at the hands of a 6-1 defeat to Motherwell.
Despite this inability to win promotion back to the top flight, McCall has done an impressive job since taking the reigns at Ibrox, and it is hard to argue against him deserving a long-term deal.
He steadied a ship that was rocking more and more with each passing week, and completed a fantastic job in getting Rangers to the play-off final, even if they did then lose that final itself.
He highlights his ability to recruit people as being one of his greatest strengths, and that is certainly a field in which the Light Blues must improve. There are clear gaps of quality in the current playing squad, and with a host of players out of contract this summer, it is expected that whoever is manager will have a major rebuilding job to complete ahead of next season.
Likewise, he has already shown his ability to get the best out of players, with Dean Shiels coming in from his outcast position and impressing, whilst Andy Murdoch has improved incredibly since the former Rangers midfielder was named boss.
McCall has done everything asked of him considering the situation the club were in when he arrived, and Rangers will be making a huge mistake if they let him go in search of a new boss this summer.
