Rangers fans have been reacting on Twitter to the reports linking them with a move for Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill following the national team's exit from the World Cup qualifiers.

Despite an incredibly spirited showing in Basel, Northern Ireland were unable to overturn the 1-0 deficit from their play-off first-leg clash with Switzerland, and there now appears to be major question marks surrounding whether O'Neill will stay for the next qualifying campaign, or whether he will seek a new challenge.

One club reportedly considering offering O'Neill that fresh challenge is Rangers - who are still without a manager after parting company with Pedro Caixinha last month.

The Scottish Sun reports that the Gers are monitoring O'Neill's situation, and that has prompted plenty of discussion amongst the supporters on social media.

O'Neill's stock has risen dramatically during his time at the helm at Windsor Park, and there are a number of fans who have been impressed by the way that the 48-year-old has managed to get everything out of his squad.

However, with not much experience as a club manager, and none on the level of the Scottish Premiership, there are also a number of supporters who would clearly need to be won over if O'Neill was appointed as they are unconvinced that he would be the right man to take them forward. 

Here is the best of the mixed reaction...
