Graham Roberts says a 'Rangers man' is needed at Ibrox... and he would take the job himself.

Former Rangers star Graham Roberts has called on the club to appoint a man with prior connections to the club as they seek to fill the current vacancy.

Their gamble on Pedro Caixinha did not pay off, and Rangers are still looking for a replacement after firing him last month.

Roberts was quizzed by a fan what he thought of the club's current predicament, and responded by saying he believes a 'Rangers man' is needed.

A general view of Ibrox Stadium is seen ahead of the EURO 2016 Qualifier match between Scotland and Georgia at Ibrox Stadium on October 11, 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland.

He added that he would even take the job himself if offered - as he knows how to beat Celtic.

Roberts' last job in club management was at Scottish club Clyde, where the highlight was a memorable upset over Celtic, still regarded as one of the Glasgow club's worst ever results.              

Roberts has not managed since 2012, and is not serious about becoming a contender for the Rangers post, but he certainly believes that his former club need a manager who knows the club well.

This could include ex-Gers manager Alex McLeish, or former player Derek McInnes, who are the top two current favourites with SkyBet to land the post.
