Reliable journalist issues one-word response on Rangers interview candidate for manager role

If Rangers will interview Birmingham City manager John Eustace to replace Michael Beale, a reliable journalist has revealed.
According to Alan Nixon, Rangers are unlikely to interview Birmingham City manager John Eustace for the vacant manager’s role at Ibrox.

The newspaper journalist claims on his personal Twitter account (4 October) that the club is anticipated to examine a half-dozen or more candidates for the post after Michael Beale was fired.

However, when questioned by a fan if Eustace would be among those, Nixon just replied with a one-word statement to quickly end the discussion.

No shock

Eustace was someone who was linked with the role even before Beale was sacked, so it’s no surprise that he was linked again when the job became available.

But it’s expected that he would command a “sizeable compensation fee” to get out of St Andrews with a contract that runs until 2025.

Rangers spent big in the summer and in the last 12 months alone have paid off Giovanni van Bronckhorst and his staff and have now had to do the same for Beale and his staff.

That almost certainly rules him out of the running, and the leading candidates seem to be Kevin Muscat, Derek McInnes and Frank Lampard on this occasion who would all be cheaper or even free.

It’s going to be a long process so don’t expect things to happen overnight, but it almost certainly won’t be Eustace coming through the doors at Ibrox as the new manager.
