By Ibrox News Speaking to Tam McManus

We’re delighted to welcome Tam McManus as our exclusive Rangers columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Ibrox…

Tam McManus expects Giovanni van Bronckhorst to still be the Rangers manager when Scottish Premiership action resume after the World Cup break.

Van Bronkhorst is under immense pressure at Ibrox with the Gers’ title challenge looking as though it’s already dead in the water while the less said about the Champions League campaign the better.

Rangers now have a month to regroup and rest up before their league season continues on 15 December when Hibernian visit Ibrox.

McManus expects van Bronckhorst to still be in charge despite all the rumours he’s heard about the Dutchman facing the sack.

When asked by Ibrox News if he thinks van Bronckhorst will still be in charge after the World Cup break, McManus said: “I think he will. They might let him run through now until the end of the season.

The league looks like it’s over. I don’t think there’s much coming back in that. But I just don’t think they’ll sack him.

If they were going to sack him, they’d have maybe done it three weeks ago and I just think they’ll see it out now.

Performances have been absolutely dreadful.

On Saturday, they were really poor. It looks as if the players have chucked it and they’re probably fortunate to even get a point against St Mirren. They were really, really poor.

There are rumours floating about on social media that he might be getting sacked but I don’t see it.

I think they’ll see the season out and then get somebody else in.”

In other Rangers news, the Gers are ready to bid £5million to beat Celtic to the signing of one of their long-term targets.
