QPR boss Michael Beale has been "in talks" with key figures at Rangers, including players, as he weighs up a return to Ibrox as boss. (Daily Mail, print edition)Dominic BallВ has urgedВ Michael BealeВ to handВ Lee WallaceВ aВ RangersВ reprieve with an invite to join his backroom staff if he is made the new manager at Ibrox.
James: I would have taken a punt on Sean Dyche - he can work on a small budget and won't take grief off any player. Nicholas: Another yes man. I'd bet any amount of money that Celtic will be double figures in front come May. And probably a treble as well and we will be looking for a new manager to replace Beale. Duncan: How many candidates did the Ibrox board interview? We would hope to learn for peace of mind that the best choice has been made.
В Some said they were happy, В that change was needed and that BealeвЂ™s familiarity with the squad and club will help him hit the ground running. One fan wasnвЂ™t quite so happy. В He pointed to the fact the former Rangers first team coach has only been a manager in his own right for six months. He said he would have wanted him to have more time at QPR before taking on a job the size of Rangers. В He did, though, wish him all the best and will give him the benefit of the doubt. Another fan wished him well in chasing down Celtic. The problem there? The gap is already nine points.
