Celtic fans are sitting back as our team are 9 points clear at the top of the league and enjoying the meltdown at Ibrox over their new managerial candidates to replace the sacked Giovanni Van Bronckhorst.
Former Ibrox assistant Michael Beale appears to be nailed on for the job, with oddschecker having him at 1/4 to take over the reins at Ibrox.
However, many fans are not happy about this, especially considering the way Beale and Gerrard left ‘Rangers’ last season and his current shocking form as manager of QPR, having lost 4 of his last 5 games and drawing the other one.
The very first caller on Clyde SSB tonight, Jimmy from Yoker, made his feeling on Beale quite clear.
“Why did ne not stay at Ibrox?”
“Why did he sneak away?”
“Us Rangers fans feel that the backroom staff that were at Ibrox sneaked away in the middle of the night, like thieves in the night. They sneaked away from Rangers.”
“For me, he’s not welcome at Rangers.”
“I’ve been a season ticket holder for many years standing and I’d be DISGUSTED if Michael Beale got the job.”
“The record he has at QPR in the last six games is WORSE than Rangers, so why would you bring in a manager that has a worse record than Rangers here?”
Oh dear, it seems as though if Beale does get the job, the SMSM are going to have to work overtime to convince the Ibrox hordes that Beale is the next Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola.
