Report: Billy Davies 'desperate' to return to Ibrox as Rangers manager

Billy Davies

Former Rangers midfielder Billy Davies allegedly wants a return to Ibrox as manager.

According to the Daily Mail, former Derby County boss Billy Davies is 'desperate' to land the Rangers job this summer, making a return to Ibrox in the process.

Rangers lost 6-1 on aggregate to Motherwell on Sunday in the Scottish Premiership play-off final, meaning they will remain in the Scottish Championship for at least another year.

Now, the attention turns to the future of manager Stuart McCall, whose contract expires this summer despite only arriving in March.

The 50-year-old was only handed a deal until the end of the season after the departures of Ally McCoist and Kenny McDowall earlier this season, and having failed to achieve promotion, McCall could now be replaced at Ibrox.

Many managers will be linked with such a prestigious role, and the Daily Mail believe that Billy Davies is 'desperate' to become Rangers manager this summer.

The 51-year-old has been out of work since March 2014 having left Nottingham Forest for the second time, and has a strong reputation in England having taken Derby County to the Premier League in 2007.

The Scot started his career with Rangers as a midfielder in the 1980's, so it's no surprise that Davies would want a return to Ibrox in order to manage the club, though whether Rangers would want to appoint him remains to be seen, with his odds with bookmakers currently sitting at 10/1.
