After two back-to-back promotions, Rangers sit in the Scottish Championship, meaning one more successful campaign would see them back in the Premiership in the first season it would be possible for them to do so. Many saw McCoist as the man to do this, but following personal issues and conflicting interested, McCoist resigned from his post to leave the job vacant.
Cathro Linked With Rangers Job
Young coach, Ian Cathro (middle), is supposedly a management target of Rangers F.C. following the departure of local icon, Ally McCoist.
Multiple managers have been suggested for the role since McCoists departure, many proven candidates who would no doubt be welcomed with open arms by the Gers.
Several sources, however, have linked the job to young coach Ian Cathro, who turns 28 next month. Cathro has spent spells as assistant head coach at Dundee United, Rio Ave and currently, Valencia CF. Cathro's appointment would make him the youngest ever coach in the SPFL, breaking the record of 33 years old.
Speculation has yet to lead to anything else, neither Cathro nor Rangers F.C. speaking out on the topic. It is expected, however, that Rangers will have appointed a new manager by the end of the week, and Cathro has been made quite a front runner by local bookmakers.
