The hot-seat at Ibrox became vacant on Thursday afternoon, following the news that Pedro Caixinha has been relieved of his duties after last night’s 1-1 draw at home to Kilmarnock.

Caixinha had only been in charge for eight months but Wednesday night’s match was the final straw, particularly after Sunday’s 2-0 reverse against Motherwell in the Betfred Cup on Sunday.
The likes of Alex McLeish, Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes and even Billy Davies have all been mentioned as possible candidates to take over today, but ex-England coach Allardyce seems to be a name coming up time and again on social media:
I'd be asking the question to Allardyce. Possibly Pardew. Would not be limiting it to McInnes or Wright.

Allardyce. He'd love a massive, ego boosting challenge like this.

Mr Samuel Allardyce

In order of preference I'd appoint Allardyce, McLeish, Redknapp, McInnes & Moyes with Murty or Barry F being appointed assistant #RangersFC

Would take FDB, Michael O'Neil or Sam Allardyce in a heartbeat.

Believe me if you want or not but I just seen Sam Allardyce in the Asda in Govan looking at new suit troosers.

Why do I get butterflies in my belly thinking Allardyce will be our next manager?

Just had convo with rangers taxi driver. Genuinely thinks Allardyce would jump at chance to come to Ibrox. After everything delusion reigns

Need to get this one right, Should have went for McInnes 7 months ago, don't know now though, maybe Sam Allardyce ?
— Derek ?? (@derekrfc79) October 26, 2017
Do you think Allardyce would be interested in a stint with the Scottish Premiership side, or is he an unrealistic target for Dave King and co?
