Rangers are currently in talks to appoint Philippe Clement as their new manager, as per journalist Sacha Tavolieri.
The Gers are looking to appoint their next manager following the sacking of Michael Beale. They have a poor start to the season, and after three defeats already, the club decided to part ways with the former QPR boss.
A host of names have been thrown around, but Tavolieri claims that Clement has emerged as one of the main options for the Bears.
The 49-year-old spoke with Saudi club Al Shabab last week, but the Belgian coach is still tempted to move to Ibrox.
Tavolieri wrote on Twitter, “Talks currently ongoing between Philippe Clement & RangersFC. Belgian coach has been targeted as one of the main favorites by the Scottish board. Philippe Clement keen on the move despite having hold talks with Al Shabab last week.”
While the likes of Kevin Muscat, Scott Parker, and Pascal Jansen have been mentioned as other major options for Rangers, getting Clement on board is probably easy as he is currently out of work.
The Daily Record reported last week that Clement jetted into Glasgow for discussions already but left the city without a firm decision over a deal.
The 49-year-old didn’t enjoy success with Monaco, but that shouldn’t be a major factor when considering his case as the next boss. He is someone who is vastly experienced and proved his managerial acumen during his time with Club Brugge.
Given his ability to develop young talents, Rangers must consider him as a strong candidate for this role. The club is in an absolute mess right now, and they need to their next appointment spot on. The process of changing managers cannot go on forever, and at some point, they need stability.
Rangers are a massive club and stooping to mediocrity shouldn’t be tolerated. They should be bringing in someone who has won trophies in his career, and Clement would be a smart choice.
