Rangers should make audacious move for Sean Dyche

Ibrox outfit Glasgow Rangers should make a move for Burnley manager Sean Dyche as a successor to Mark Warburton.

Rangers are on the lookout for a new manager. On Friday evening, the Gers announced on their official website that they have parted company with Mark Warburton.

It was announced that Warburton, who was appointed in the role in the summer of 2015, has resigned. It now remains to be seen who Rangers appoint as his successor.

Alex McLeish, Billy Davies, Frank De Boer and Derek McInnes are among the bookmakers’ favourites, but could the Glasgow giants make an audacious move for a Premier League manager?

Sean Dyche is in charge of Burnley at the moment and seems quite happy. The 45-year-old has been in charge of the Premier League club since 2012, but should Rangers make a move?

While it is hard to see Burnley letting go of Dyche so late in the season, perhaps Rangers should test the waters. After all, what have they got to lose? The worst thing that could happen is that Burnley would not give the Gers permission to speak to him.

Burnley are not a massive club, but there can be no doubt that Dyche is a very good manager. The Englishman has shown what he is able to do with a limited budget, and his football, although not exciting, is not exactly dull.

One would not be surprised if a big club come calling for Dyche soon, and Rangers should take this opportunity to make a move. True, the former Watford boss does not have experience of Scottish football, but he would not take much time to learn about it.

Appointing Dyche now may not make much difference in terms of Rangers finishing second in the Scottish Premiership this season, but he is someone who could make the Gers successful in the long run.

What Rangers are looking for is long-term stability and ability to challenge Celtic. Dyche would be able to do that if he is given support and time.
