Ibrox club Glasgow Rangers have been linked with bringing Ange Postecoglou to the Gers as Pedro Caixinha’s permanent successor.

Australia's head coach Ange Postecoglou speaks at a press conference in Sydney on October 31, 2017.

Rangers may have parted company with Pedro Caixinha in October, but the Gers are yet to appoint a permanent manager for the Gers.

Graeme Murty is in charge of the Ibrox outfit at the moment and is set to be in the dugout this weekend.

Ange Postecoglou has been linked with the Rangers managerial job. According to ESPN, Postecoglou is interested in the role at the Gers, having recently left his position as the Australia national football team.

The 52-year-old recently quit his role as the Australia national team head coach despite guiding the team to the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia next summer.

Partick Thistle central midfielder Ryan Edwards has backed Postecoglou to be a success at Rangers if he is appointed the Ibrox manager.

The 24-year-old made Postecoglou’s initial 30-man squad earlier this year, but he could not make the final team.

“There is a connection with Australia and Rangers so maybe that is why his name has been thrown in.”

According to Sky Bet, Postecoglou’s odds of becoming the new Rangers manager are 22/1.
