Rangers in talks to terminate contracts of yet more staff members after 'dramatic Monday'
Rangers have started the process of removing Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s backroom staff after the Dutchman was relieved of his duties, according to the Daily Record.
It’s understood the club are looking to terminate the contracts of a number of the coaching staff, including Dave Vos and Roy Makaay who look set to follow van Bronckhorst out of the club after he was sacked on a “dramatic Monday” morning at Ibrox (Daily Record, 24 November).
The board are looking to start afresh with Michael Beale closing in on the vacancy, however, it remains unclear if goalkeeping coach Colin Steward will leave the club, having previously held the position when Steven Gerrard was in charge at Ibrox.
A new era is certainly upon us at Ibrox with the board set to make an official approach for Beale (talkSPORT’s Alex Crook, 23 November) in the coming hours. Beale is a popular figure at Ibrox and knows the club well, but questions have to be asked about his managerial career to date.
He started life well with QPR but has found points hard to come by in recent weeks, and considering he has limited experience being the main man in charge, this is a gamble from the Gers. If he is appointed the club must give him time to implement a new ethos and culture at Ibrox.
It was hard to see where the club were heading under van Bronckhorst with there being no real plan in terms of recruitment and style of play.
Beale simply has to be supported in everything he does by the board moving forward. This squad needs a facelift and the board must invest in January and the summer to ensure Rangers get back to competing with Celtic on a domestic level.
