Garry Monk is officially an unemployed manager once again after being shown the exit door by Middlesbrough yesterday – and now Rangers supporters are hoping he could be the answer to all their problems.
Monk arrived at the Riverside Stadium last summer after a promising campaign with Leeds United, and looked like he’d built a team likely of climbing directly back into the Premier League next season.
But their form stammered and stuttered, and now Monk is back on the managerial merry-go-round.
Could his next stop be Ibrox?
We all know the Gers hierarchy have announced Graeme Murty as interim boss until the summer but surely the emergence of a long-term replacement would significantly change things?
When Murty ended the 2014/15 English Premier League season with Swansea City in 8th position with a record points tally, Rangers fans would’ve loved him in charge then – and it seems little has changed:
Would defo take Garry Monk at Rangers like, even though he spells Gary like a fanny.

If the board had any balls, Monk would be in the door tomorrow and in the dugout for the piggery.

We really should try all we can to get Gary Monk, an unexpected opportunity for the board to salvage some credibility.

Wed morning the clowns at L5 call a presser and announce Gary Monk as Rangers new manager , they thank GM for stepping into the role but say they couldn't pass by the opportunity of seeing if Gary was interested. He said he was so here we are today …

I think most, if not all of us would take Gary Monk in a heartbeat. Unfortunately our board won't even know he's been sacked until 3 weeks from now and he'll have another job by then.
It's like none of them had heard about football until taking us over.

Appointing Murty til the end of the season felt like a mistake at the time and it looks even worse now. We should be swallowing our pride, admitting it was wrong and going after Garry Monk right now.

Garry Monk should be first on Rangers Christmas list.
He's definitely one of the best British coaches about.
The man wears a headset at training to record himself & play back to see if his message is clear and for reflective practice. ?
