Nine days after Rangers sacked Michael Beale, the list of front runners to replace him now seem to have been narrowed down to two.
Various reports today indicate that one of Belgian manager Philippe Clement and former Ibrox defender Kevin Muscat will succeed Beale as the 19th manager in the club’s history.
The Scottish Sun even go as far as to say that Clement, who won three league titles in his native country, will be offered the role today by James Bisgrove and John Bennett, with a deadline of tomorrow being given to decide whether he would want to take the job on.
It would then likely be at that point that Muscat would be approached as the second choice for the role, with the Australian prepared to walk away from his job at Yokohama despite being in the closing stages of a title race in Japan.
Other names heavily linked over recent days, including John Eustace and Scott Parker, have since been ruled out.
A move for Clement would represent a positive move for Rangers fans, as he not only instructs his teams to play an expansive, attacking style of football, but has a track record as a winner wherever he goes, despite things not quite working out at Monaco last season.
Whilst Steven Davis did a decent enough job steadying the ship at the weekend with a 3-0 win away to St Mirren, the support will be glad it appears a new permanent boss will be in place by the time the international break comes to an end.
