Report: Rangers will not make managerial appointment this week

Vitor Pereira, Mark Warburton, Derek McInnes and Stuart McCall are the candidates for the managerial job at Scottish Championship club Rangers.

Rangers will not make a decision over their managerial situation this week, according to The Daily Mail.

The Scottish giants are reportedly looking at candidates to take charge of the first team next week, including current boss Stuart McCall.

Olympiakos manager Vitor Pereira, former Brentford boss Mark Warburton and Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes are three other candidates, according to The Daily Mail.

However, the British newspaper claim that a decision will not be made until next week, while stating that Warburton is the favourite for the job at Ibrox.

“Rangers do not expect to make an appointment this week,” states the report in The Daily Mail.

“But the clear wish of supporters for a fresh outlook throughout the club has given the former Brentford manager the edge over Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes or McCall.”

While the current situation is not ideal - after all, a team without a manager is no team at all - it makes sense for Rangers to wait until next week to decide who their new manager will be.

After all, there is no point in making a rash decision and regretting it later. It seems that Rangers are taking their time, and it is in the best interests of everyone at the club that they are doing so.
