Bookies Make Barry Ferguson New Favourite to be Next Rangers Manager

Bookies Make Barry Ferguson New Favourite to be Next Rangers Manager

Barry Ferguson has officially resigned as manager of Clyde – prompting bookies to make him the new out-and-out favourite to take over at Rangers.

Rumours began circulating that Ferguson’s time with the Scottish League Two side was over following yesterday’s 1-0 defeat at Annan Athletic, a result which sees Clyde drop to third from bottom in the table.

And on Sunday morning, the official Clyde website put out a statement confirming Ferguson had handed in his resignation, and league sponsors Ladbrokes reckon he could be in line to replace Mark Warburton at Ibrox:

Ladbokes have Ferguson as the 5/2 front runner for the job with Alex McLeish a 3/1 shot and Dutch coach Martin Jol available at 6/1.

Former Gers defender Frank De Boer is just 8/1 to takeover, with current caretaker boss Graeme Murty priced at 16/1 to be offered to permanent position.

As a player, Ferguson was an undoubted success at Rangers, captaining the club and winning five league titles – but is he really ready to be the next Rangers manager?

What do you think?
