Like Rodgers at Celtic can Moyes save reputation with Rangers job?

David Moyes linked with Rangers job and like Brendan Rodgers at Celtic, it could rescue his reputation.

David Moyes has moved up to second favourite in the latest odds with Skybet to become the next Rangers manager following the sacking of Pedro Caixinha.

Moyes is now 5/1 behind the 4/7 favourite Derek McInnes, who is currently in charge at Aberdeen, with the 54-year-old having yet to find a new job since being sacked by Sunderland at the end of last season.

In fact since succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United back in 2013 it has been something of a downward spiral for the Scot, with unsuccessful stints at Old Trafford, Real Sociedad and with the Black Cats.

An impressive reputation built up during 11 years with Everton has waned fast and arguably Moyes needs Gers more than they need him as he looks to claw his way back to the glory days enjoyed at Goodison Park.

Possibly Ibrox is the perfect place to do this, just as Brendan Rodgers has done since taking charge of rivals Celtic in 2016 after being sacked by Liverpool eight months earlier.

Rodgers' reputation was admittedly not as low as Moyes' is now, but 18 months of success with the Bhoys since has certainly enhanced it to a point where the Northern Irishman is being linked with the Premier League's biggest jobs once again.

Perhaps a return to his native Scotland and the chance to awaken a sleeping giant can also see the former Red Devils boss being considered among the best in the business once again.
