Michael Mols has advice for Rangers regarding new manager’s contract

Michael Mols says that Rangers should not go for a quick-fix solution.

Michael Mols has told The Scottish Sun that Rangers need to hand their new manager a five-year contract.

The Gers are currently looking for a new manager for the 2015-16 season following their failure to gain promotion from the Scottish Championship to the Scottish Premiership.

According to The Scottish Sun, Mark Warburton, Alex McLeish, Derek McInnes, Stuart McCall, Ian Cathro and Billy Davies are all candidates for the job at Ibrox.

Mols, a former Rangers striker, has urged the club to hand their new boss a long-term contract rather than a short-term deal.

“This isn’t just about the choice of manager,” the 44-year-old former Netherlands international told The Scottish Sun. “The board also needs to put a long-term plan in place.

“This isn’t an appointment for one year, it should be for five years. That should be the strategy. That is the most important thing. Rangers can’t afford to go for a quick fix. That wouldn’t work.”

Mols’s opinion will be shared by many Rangers fans, and indeed the club should be looking for a manager who can build a team that can compete in the Scottish Premiership once they get promoted.

However, the problem is that it will not be easy for the Gers to get promoted, and they need someone who can take them back up at the end of the 2015-16 season.

The Glasgow giants have to return to the Scottish top flight, and they need the best manager available to do that.

The immediate objective for Rangers has to be to build a team and get a manager who can take them to the Premiership.
