Rangers are currently on the hunt for a new manager after parting company with Pedro Caixinha last week.

The Portuguese coach was axed just seven months into his three-year contract following the Gers’ disappointing 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock at Ibrox.

Caixinha’s side conceded a 95th-minute equaliser against Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership last week and that was the end of the road for the 46-year-old.

“The decision to part company with Pedro was taken after careful consideration and the search for a new manager will begin immediately,” Rangers said in a statement, per the Guardian. “Pedro was appointed in March this year but results have been disappointing and not commensurate with the level of investment that was made available.

“The priority is to appoint a new manager as quickly as possible but the board will take as much time as is necessary to secure the right person capable of representing Rangers and providing the brand of football [our] supporters rightly expect.”

Leading contenders for the Rangers job

Derek McInnes is currently the firm favourite to become Rangers’ next permanent manager followed by Alan Pardew, Walter Smith and Michel Preud'homme.

Other names in the frame include Alex McLeish, Graeme Murty, Dick Advocaat and Steve McLaren.

Watch: Larsson reacts when asked if he wants Rangers job

Henrik Larsson was at Celtic Park for BT Sport on Tuesday night to analyse Celtic’s Champions League clash against Bayern Munich when he was asked by his former teammate, Chris Sutton, if he’d be interested in succeeding Caixinha.


Celtic fans will absolutely love the blunt response Larsson provided.

Larsson turned the tables on Sutton

Larsson then turned the tables on Sutton by saying: “But you told me you were interested in that job, is that true?”

Sutton replied: “Oh God. You know better than that!”


The presenter then joked that Larsson was 1,000/1 and Sutton 400,000/1 to become the next Rangers manager with the bookmakers.

We’re surprised they were that short, to be perfectly honest.
