Gerardo Seoane now in running for Rangers job after Bayer Leverkusen success

Rangers are in the process of appointing their next manager and Gerardo Seoane has emerged as a possible option “out of the blue”, as reported by Scottish Daily Express.

The Bears confirmed the sacking of Giovanni van Bronckhorst on Monday (21 November), and they are in the process of appointing their next manager.

A host of names have come into consideration, and Seoane is the latest manager to be linked with the Gers after his spell at Bayer Leverkusen came to an end.

Record

The Light Blues finally decided to sack the Dutchman after the damage has already been done.

The Gers are nine points behind Celtic, and there was no ray of hope under the Dutchman. Poor domestic and European form already had put him under huge pressure, what was really concerning was that the football being played was unimaginative and dull. 

In the past 24 hours, the likes of Sean Dyche, Steven Gerrard, Kevin Muscat, and Peter Bosz have been mentioned, but Sean won’t be a bad option for the club. 

He has previous experience winning trophies, having won three Swiss Super League titles with Young Boys. 

The 44-year-old, who has Spanish and Swiss citizenship landed the job at Bayer Leverkusen in May 2021, and that is where he really made a big impression. 

Playing some attractive football, he took the Bundesliga side to an impressive third spot in the German league. But a sluggish start this season saw him relieved of his duties last month.

He would be eager to return to management, and a move to Ibrox could appeal to him.
