Mark McGhee Recommends Derek McInnes and Tommy Wright For Rangers Job

Mark McGhee supports Derek McInnes or Tommy Wright as the next Rangers manager.

The Motherwell manager has had his say on the vacant managerial position at Ibrox after Mark Warburton’s surprise exit from the club last Friday.

McGhee has experience of a few jobs, including the Scottish national team assistant manager role. He was also Aberdeen manager for just over a year between 2009 and 2010 so is aware of the pressure of managing at Pittodrie.

And that’s why he believes McInnes, particularly, and Wright have what it takes to manage Rangers.

McGhee spoke today ahead of his side’s clash against Aberdeen tomorrow night and, via stv.tv, said: “Having been at that club (Aberdeen) and knowing how difficult a club it is to manage, I think he (McInnes) has done a brilliant job.

“I see Tommy Wright linked with it and equally with the resources he has done a brilliant job. I’d love to see one of these guys get the opportunity.

“We all do these courses, pro licences and we all work hard with the resources we have and it’s good when these guys get that recognition.”

We doubt Rangers will take McGhee’s advice when searching for a new manager, but it’s still difficult to argue with his comments.

Why can’t managers who have made their name with smaller Scottish clubs get the chance to take on one of the big clubs? McInnes and Wright have certainly proven themselves with success at Aberdeen and St Johnstone respectively.

But would you give them a chance? Particularly when Alex McLeish, Billy Davies and Frank de Boer have been mentioned as alternatives?
