    Knowing his family I’d be surprised if he ends up at Ibrox.

    That the Mexican bloke with match-fixing allegations against him?
  5. when was your first trip to Ibrox?

    Rangers 2 Arbroath 3 : 2nd February 1974 Birthday present, tickets obtained for the main stand by my dad from the bloke who's family lived down the road....Derek Parlane. He scored and I was happy because he waved up to us! That's all I really remember.

    Looks like leaving the Wales job...probably last game in charge last night. Looking to get back to club football with someone who'd give him the opportunity of Champions League football. We fit the criteria he's looking for. You think that's why the club are waiting to "later this week"? I'd have him top of my wishlist ahead of McInnes.

    Jump off a bridge anyway 👍
  8. Derek McInnes

    You promise to jump off a bridge when McInnes is announced?

    Irrelevant. They achieved their potential. Question...in the 4 seasons up to Mcinnes took over why didn't they finish third!

    The fast bloke won a cup. Derek McInnes almost won a treble as well. Second in everything...

    That's the dilemma, but there's only one way we'll ever find that out I suppose.

    A post earlier in the thread... To be challenging them, you need to start by matching what they do against the other 10 teams in the league. Once you've done that it comes down the OF games alone. McInnes hasn't been that far off that, easily being the best of the rest with arguably, an inferior squad than ours. In fact, this season, outwith their game against each other they are pretty much identical. What McInnes is doing is achieving a consistency we desperately need in the same league. So, here we have a manager, in our league, doing what we need to be doing...i.e. achieving consistency that allows his team going into head to heads with them that actually mean something. OK, they're failing in those head to heads, but at least he's taking them to a position that's exactly where we need to be, and it strikes me as curious that some of our fans don't think it's worth a shot. With the greater resources being Rangers manager brings then the opportunity to challenge with McInnes looks a very attractive proposition to me. Aside from that, he's pulled in players who some have seen as ordinary and turned them into good players that are attracting interest from elsewhere (including us), such as Lewis, Logan, Rooney, McLean, Shinnie and started bringing through youngsters like O'Connor and Wright. He's a guy that knows what he's doing in Scotland, has improved his teams year on year and understands Rangers. Measuring that against most of the other candidates he comes high on the list if not top. It might not be the most exciting name but I think it's exactly what we need.

    He's never managed under a microscope like a Rangers manager would. Could he handle the heat? Managing in Belgium is what he knows...managing in Holland he won a cup, wow. He's 58. He's nothing to prove to anyone, does he have the ambition, desire and longevity? Anyway, too big a risk for me, especially without the heavy investment that wouldn't come and then he's fucked off back to Belgium, a wee bit richer and a wee bit wiser and we're left standing still. Not the biggest McInnes fan, but he offers the best attributes of any of the candidates I've seen so far...
  14. Derek McInnes

    better option than a bloke who's never succeeded outside his own country, is 58 and nothing to prove...and once he realises the shit and pressure that goes with being a modern manager of Rangers will fuck off back home leaving us back at square 1.

    Dunno but he's fast.
