Journalist reveals verdict on Michael Beale Rangers job decision
The job at Ibrox and the chance to return to Rangers was too good of an opportunity for Michael Beale to turn down, according to freelance journalist Dean Jones.
Beale was formally announced as the Rangers manager on 21 November 2022 after curtains were called on Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
Journalist Jones confessed that he’s been told that Beale saw the opportunity at Rangers as “too good” to turn down after he left Queens Park Rangers for the role.
“I know people are raising their eyebrows because of being so loyal not long ago and now he’s heading out the door,” said Jones to GIVEMESPORT.
“But I think sometimes there become moments in anyone’s career that become too good to turn down and I’m told that that’s how he viewed this job.”
In the cruel world of modern football, where there are twists and turns aplenty, Beale leaving QPR to return to Rangers is fair game.
The Englishman evidently has an affinity with the Ibrox faithful and wants to do things differently from his first stint at the club under Steven Gerrard.
QPR also hadn’t won a game in their last six, begging the question as to how long Beale even had left at the London club in the first place.
Should the Gers be worried by this losing trend? Probably not, it’s a different league, club and situation entirely and a tough gig to crack all season long.
Beale does however, need to be backed in the January transfer window if he has any chance of catapulting Rangers ahead of Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
Time will now tell if this was a shrewd appointment or not, but there’s no denying that Beale has a gargantuan task ahead of him.
