Peter Bosz high on agenda to become new Rangers manager as Ibrox board ready

Peter Bosz is in the frame to replace Giovanni van Bronckhorst as Rangers manager after the Dutchman was sacked, according to the Scottish Daily Express.

The former Lyon boss was high on the agenda of the Ibrox board after he was relieved of duties at the Ligue 1 club in October, and after van Bronckhorst’s sacking, it appears he is a possible candidate to succeed his compatriot.

The Scottish Daily Express report (21 November) Bosz could “lead the charge” for the Gers’ hot seat ahead of the Scottish Premiership returning next month.

Quick turnaround

Considering it took a long time to sack van Bronckhorst, there should be some hope that work has been going on behind the scenes to find his successor. Michael Beale, Steven Gerrard and Sean Dyche are the obvious candidates who will be linked with the job.

Bosz is a name the Ibrox faithful won’t be familiar with, but he has an impressive CV when it comes to some of the clubs he has managed in the past. Ajax, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and Feyenoord just to name a few. The major concern is that he hasn’t lasted long in his previous jobs, with five roles since 2016.

Fans may well be hoping for a change of tact when it comes to managers with Bosz very similar to van Bronckhorst. He comes from the same nation and has lasted less than a year in his previous job. It may be a harder task, but the Rangers faithful would probably be more encouraged if Dyche or Ralph Hasenhuttl decided to take the helm at Ibrox.
