Ibrox club Glasgow Rangers have Graeme Murty in charge of the Gers, but should Tony Pulis be given the job?

Tony Pulis has spoken highly of Rangers on beinSPORTS Facebook live on Friday. The former West Bromwich Albion manager has shared his admiration of the Gers.

Pulis, who was dismissed as the manager of Premier League club West Brom in November and is without a managerial job at the moment, has also expressed his admiration of Rangers’ Old Firm rivals, Celtic.


The former Stoke City and Crystal Palace manager has claimed that due to the size of Celtic and Rangers, the Premier League do not want them.

“Rangers is massive,” said Pulis on beinSPORTS Facebook live. “That is one of the great clubs of British football, one of the great clubs.

“If you put Celtic and Rangers in the Premier League, I am telling you, the Premier League don’t them because they are that big. That's how big those two clubs are."

“I don’t think anybody can question the support or the size of the football,” added Pulis about Rangers.

Interestingly, former Celtic striker Chris Sutton backed Pulis to become the Rangers manager back in November, as shown in the Tweet below.

Chris Sutton of Celtic slips and kicks his penalty over the bar during The Tennents Scottish Cup Final between Celtic and Dundee United at Hampden Park on May 28, 2005 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Pulis is a very good manager who has been a success in the Premier League, and it would not be a bad idea for Rangers to at least make an approach.

Graeme Murty is doing a wonderful job as the caretaker-manager of Rangers, but the Gers should be looking long term.
