Charlie Adam suggests Rangers manager move for Michael Carrick
Charlie Adam suggests that Rangers should look to appoint Manchester United coach Michael Carrick as manager.
Speaking on BBC Sportsound [11/11/21], the former Rangers midfielder revealed that he thinks that Carrick could take on the manager role at Ibrox.
The Gers are looking to find a replacement for Steven Gerrard, and Adam appears to have just picked Carrick at random, seeing as though he hasn’t been linked with a move anywhere else.
He said: “I’ll throw a name in the hat. Michael Carrick – he has been at Man United, a big club, good coach. It was a gamble with Steven.
“Will they go down that same route? Will they go for an experienced name? There will only be three or four people that know.”
Carrick would be very similar to Gerrard if the Gers suddenly decided to go down that route because he has never managed a first-team squad before and has instead built up his coaching with the Red Devils.
However, seeing as though Giovanni van Bronckhorst was in talks with the Bears today, you would think that it is more likely that the Gers make a move for the Dutchman [Sky Sports].
If Carrick were to emerge as a contender suddenly, then it would be one of the more bizarre managerial appointments of recent years and would also be a complete u-turn from the route they appear to be going down.
You have to credit the Gers for the way in which they have moved on from Gerrard and look to be close to appointing a new manager.
Carrick could be a good coach if the Gers did want to bring him in, but surely the Bears will look elsewhere for their new gaffer?
