Ange Postecoglou’s odds to become the next Rangers manager have tumbled after his Australia resignation.
The Greek-Australian boss led the Socceroos to the World Cup after a playoff victory over Honduras less than a week ago.
But he yesterday quit as their national team gaffer, citing the pressure of the job for his decision to leave before the World Cup.
Postecoglou has always been a name mentioned in betting odds for the next Rangers boss, but there are a whole host of random names alongside him, including Roy Keane, Sir Alex Ferguson and Gordon Strachan.
While Postecoglou to Rangers seemed ridiculous while he was still in charge of an Australia team heading for the World Cup, it seems more realistic now that he’s out of that job.
And the bookmakers seem to have reason to drop his odds to as little as 3/1 – making him third favourite behind Alex McLeish and Derek McInnes across the board.
McInnes has appeared the favourite since Pedro Caixinha’s Ibrox sacking, but McLeish has emerged as a contender over the last few days – and his odds hint that the club may be closer to making an appointment.
Yet maybe Postecoglou’s availability will interest Dave King and the Rangers board?
Rangers fans – would you be interested?
