Rangers to concentrate on out-of-work managers, Frank Lampard approach considered

Rangers are considering an approach to appoint Frank Lampard as their new manager at Ibrox.

That’s according to The Guardian, who report that the Bears are set to focus on out-of-work managers to replace Steven Gerrard.

Giovanni van Bronkhorst is the other name mentioned with Ross Wilson currently drawing up his shortlist.

The international break has handed Rangers an extra week without fixtures as they look to bring their new man into the club.

Lampard would be an interesting replacement, but it would need to happen quickly if they want to entice him north of the border.

Sky Sports have reported this morning that Norwich are currently in talks with the former Chelsea man.

The Canaries are replacing Daniel Farke, who was shown his marching orders from Carrow Road despite a 2-1 win at Brentford.

Last-gasp hijack?

Norwich or Rangers? There is only one winner here.

Lampard could prepare for instant relegation in months time from the Premier League, or go straight into Europe.

Our new manager will face a real baptism of fire at Ibrox, starting with a semi-final clash against Hibernian and then a huge Europa League clash against Sparta Prague.

This is what it is all about, and if Lampard is singled out as the man for the job, those two games will surely get his appetite going.

Wilson will be working overtime as things stand, and he knows that a man will need to be in place over the next week to make sure next week’s semi-final is prepared for correctly.

Could it be Lampard? Surely, he fancies the challenge.
