The managerial merry-go-round is creaking into action once again. According to the BBC, Rangers have dismissed Pedro Caixinha after just seven months in charge following a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock at Ibrox on Wednesday night that leaves Rangers looking down into mid-table rather than up at the runaway leaders.
As it stands, Rangers lie eight points adrift of Old Firm rivals Celtic after a late Chris Burke leveller for Killie in midweek. Now, just half a year after Caixinha was appointed to replace Mark Warburton after a month of non-stop speculation, talk once again returns to who will be the latest manager to try and withstand the Ibrox hotseat.
And despite a disastrous four-game spell at Crystal Palace that leaves his reputation in tatters, it appears most Rangers supporters would willing to give Frank de Boer the chance to get his managerial career back on track at his old stomping ground.
The legendary Dutch defender, who played 17 games for Rangers in 2003/04, cut his coaching teeth with a dream six-year spell at former club Ajax, winning four Eredivisie titles.
De Boer has been sacked from his last two jobs at Inter Milan and Crystal Palace after a combined 19 games, however, the 47-year-old undermined by a stubborn refusal to alter his tactics, divisions with key players and some truly dire football.
Nonetheless, if Rangers supporters had their say, De Boer should be on the club’s shortlist.

I've said for ages he'll be a future rangers manager. Would rather de boer tho— Jack (@WatpJack) October 24, 2017
£5 on Tim Sherwood or Frank De Boer next Rangers manager, thank me later.— Fraser⚜️ (@FraserRussell8) October 26, 2017
I would take either of the de Boer brothers in a heartbeat! #Rangers— Scott Paterson (@ScottPaterson92) October 26, 2017
Alex McLeish back to Rangers wouldn’t be the worst appointment in the world. Alternatively Frank De Boer could do a Brendan Rodgers with us.— Mark (@_The12thMan) October 26, 2017
I don't rate McLeish at all. De Boer in the Summer is possible, Rangers will benefit from him being sacked in his last 2 jobs— Scott Black (@Blacka33) October 25, 2017
No way would I take McInnes. I'd take de Boer and laudrup. Also keep Barry Ferguson and Terry butcher and mcoist far away from rangers.— robert (@rangerslad1983) October 23, 2017
