Sinisa Mihajlovic would be interested in Rangers job after Gio van Bronckhorst sack

Sinisa Mihajlovic has expressed interest in managing Rangers after the Gers confirmed the sacking of Giovanni van Bronckhorst on Monday (21 November).

The 53-year-old manager is currently out of work after being sacked himself by Bologna three months ago.

He also took charge of the Serbian national side in 2012 and has bucketloads of experience with a source close to the former defender suggesting that he fancies joining a “huge” club like Rangers.

“Sinisa is very interested in the Rangers job. Rangers are a huge club with a glorious past and he would be very happy to come,” a source close to the manager told The Daily Record.

Crucial

Mihajlovic is a hero in Serbia and enjoyed a 14-year great playing career in the Italian top flight.

He has played for Roma, Sampdoria, Lazio, and Inter, before taking the coaching career. He previously managed at clubs like Fiorentina, Milan, and most recently Bologna.

Mihajlovic was diagnosed with Leukaemia in the summer of 2019 but he was in the dugout Bologna throughout his treatment. He has now recovered completely and is raring to go.

While there’s no doubt that he is an experienced manager, he has limited experience working outside Italy, especially in club football.

This could be a huge gamble if the club appoint him. The Gers are considering other candidates, with the likes of Sean Dyche and Kevin Muscat being mentioned.

Michael Beale has a strong connection with the club and he could come in contention as well. Likewise, the possibility of Steven Gerrard returning to the club can’t be ruled out.

The Dutchman took the Gers final of the Europa League last season, but the right decision has been made as the results have been very poor in recent months.
