No matter what happens on the football pitch you can’t accuse life of being boring at Rangers as every day seems to bring another twist in the managerial saga, the latest being reports by Sky Sports that former player Frank De Boer has refused to rule out taking over from Mark Warburton.
Warburton’s departure from Rangers has been something of a PR shambles with the club releasing a statement on Friday saying he’d handed in his resignation only for the man himself to deny ever doing such a thing, while on Saturday Chairman Dave King responded with a statement which claimed Warburton resigned but then his agent asked to defer the resignation which King refused.
All this added to the general confusion over the managerial issue and speaking to Sky Sports De Boer indicated he’d be willing to consider an offer if Rangers wanted him.
De Boer said:
“I would always listen, that’s for sure,”
“Right now I am just taking a break and just looking more for next season and hopefully to start in pre-season, not to start in the middle of the season.
“It’s a long time that I have [been able to have] a break because when I was 14 I started to play for Ajax and when I quit my career I started directly to be a coach, first youth and then as a head coach.”
De Boer has been out of work since leaving Internationale in November, while Graeme Murty will take charge of Rangers’ Scottish Cup clash with Morton later today.
