My own thoughts are either Killie did a flier (which I doubt) signing Clarke or its Rangers euphoria which I believe on all this Clarke bluster but at the end of the day I don't think he has exactly set the Heather on fire and why is he at Killie for God's sake?

Agree5 Disagree4

20 Mar 2018 17:21:32
He has better credentials than Murty so maybe the question is how can Kilmarnock get him and we have an u20 coach with no previous experience? What does that say about us that Kilmarnock can attract a better manager

Agree5 Disagree3

20 Mar 2018 18:20:21
He's a Killie fan that's how. And they picked him up when he was out of work

Agree4 Disagree2

20 Mar 2018 18:58:36
I doubt very much that it's a question of killie being able to attract a better manager than we can, but more along the lines of Dave king scrimping and scraping, he's probably just using what he has available to him short term, whilst waiting for the season ticket renewal money coming In

Agree3 Disagree5

20 Mar 2018 19:44:39

They have attracted a better Manager than we have though. Even us scrimping about we should be able to attract better than Kilmarnock and King delaying an appointment just makes it even more difficult to try and close the gap on Celtic

Agree4 Disagree1

Steve Clarke has done very well with limited resources at Kilmarnock, he clearly has an eye for a player and knows how to set a team up to be competitive. He has won zero though, ziltch and so I don’t see how he can be so touted on here so much. One thing I would say is that I was told by a close friend that a deal was done in principle for him to take over at Celtic before they pulled the plug and went with Deila. So I believe there will be added motivation for him to put one over on them regardless of whether he supported them or not growing up. My friends source on that one works at Turd Mahal. He will be a contender for the job i’m sure but let’s bare in mind he just lost a QF.

Agree2 Disagree1

Dave king won't be there to appoint a new manager. Watch this space.

Agree1 Disagree4

20 Mar 2018 21:13:19
Thits say clarke did come would the fans be happy if he sat back and defended in the majority of games like he does at killie.
At our club teams sit in against us then hit on counter meaning we need to take the game to them to try break them down then they go ahead on the counter attack and defend more.
How would clark cope with that situion prob the same as murty not very well.
Our defence are shocking and our midfield lacks creativity untill this is sorted we will not challenge.

Agree2 Disagree1

20 Mar 2018 22:11:44
@arthurd - not one football fan of any club had Clarke on there radar to be there next manager. He's flopped everywhere else. If he hadn't he would still be in work down South.
He's had 6 good months at Killie and fans on here are nearly proclaiming him as the next Messiah of the football world.

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Mar 2018 22:47:20
He's not a Killie fan. His brother played for Killie but the whole family are Celtic fans. That does not mean that he wouldn't take the Rangers job tho. He's up here to prove himself and then hopefully get a decent club down south.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Mar 2018 06:43:47
What exactly did Brenda win before he came here zilch

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 16:10:18
Neil Warnock would be my pick for next season. Murty will be the boards first choice unless he capitulates. I understand fans citing Clarke however he's got the killie team playing a certain way to pick up points, he's def achieved great things so far but could he come into rangers and set us up in an attacking style and still get the results against teams who just sit in?

Agree9 Disagree5

20 Mar 2018 17:26:23
Warnock signed new deal cardiff

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 19:13:48
The only thing Neil Warnock would be good at is noising them up. He's not a great manager he just thinks he is

Agree2 Disagree5

20 Mar 2018 20:09:49
Have you looked at what he has achieved result wise with Cardiff in a relatively short space of time? He knows the club well and spends a lot of time at his house in Dunoon. I believe he would jump at the chance to manage us if Cardiff don’t get promotion. He’s got bags of experience and gets the best out of his squad.

Agree2 Disagree1

20 Mar 2018 22:30:06
Yes scotty123 your absolutely right. He does have a house in dunoon and I got slated last year when I said he was interested in signing Barrie McKay when I met him and then it turns out he was sniffing around for him at one point. Damn if u do and don't on this site sometimes 😂

Don’t think we can get GVB but tbh I don’t want him anyway.

Same with Frank De Boer. I’m not interested in expansive, playing the ball out from the back.

Not saying I want to see boring football, but I want a manger that knows how to change his style to suit the opponent or the flow of a game.

Might just be me buying into the hype but I honestly cannot see past Steve Clarke just now. It is not just because his recent form, he’s had experience at the top level with some of the best managers around, plenty contacts to mix in well with Mark Allen (I mean he managed to get Mulumbu to sign for Kilmarnock fs) .

Did nobody on here think to themselves when Kilmarnock signed Clarke ‘that’s some signing for Kilmarnock’? I did anyway.

I’m forever grateful for what the current board have done to settle the storm left by Green and Ashley etc, but it’s kind of worrying they didn’t know somebody like Clarke was available when they looked to appoint Pedro. Hopefully they get the next appointment right.

If it’s Murty i’ll be right behind him as I do any manager who comes in.

Agree11 Disagree7

20 Mar 2018 07:22:02
Clarke has already stated he wasn’t interested in rangers job unless goalposts have moved I don't think he will change his mind

Couldn't agree more BearMode91,in your frank and honest assessment, of how good a manager/ head coach, stevie clarke is! I have openly said on here on numerous occasions, that i want graeme murty to be given the rangers manager's job permanently, at the end of the season, on a 12 month rolling contract! I honestly don't see that being a massive gamble at all! In one transfer window murty and allen have shown good signs, in the signings they've made! I know murty is still green (pardon the pun), as the rangers permanent manager at the minute, but i honestly only see murty getting better and better with the experience of being in the top job! Of course his right hand man, jimmy nicholl will help him greatly, coupled by the 3rd member of our management team, jonathan johansson! Having said my piece on murty i have to say, that if the directors don't give murty the gig, then imo they must make a move, to appoint kilmarnock manager,
stevie clarke, as the next rangers manager! At the very least, sound clarke out first, to see if he would be interested, before approaching kilmarnock, for permission to speak to him and the likelihood hood of compensation being agreed! I know clarke is allegedly celtic orientated as a youth, but i honestly still couldn't see him turning down the rangers manager's job, if offered it! I agree with BearMode91,regarding going for stevie clarke before either frank de boer or gio van bronckhorst, who i also rate and like (both)! I think clarke would be the better fit, with his extensive experience and knowledge, of the british game especially! Not to mention the fantastic contacts he also has, within the game!

Agree8 Disagree6

20 Mar 2018 08:12:57
Clarke didn't exactly set the heather on fire in his two managerial stints as the outright manager - with Reading and West Brom. Being an assistant manager or coach is one thing, but managing the mighty Glasgow Rangers is another. Forget about Clarke, give Murty a few more games until the end of the season then see. If we don't finish 2nd or win the Scottish Cup then I think Murty should go back to the youth team and get someone else in. Who? I have no idea!

Agree6 Disagree9

20 Mar 2018 08:28:10
What do you think Stevie Clark will see that McInnes didn't? Boarddoom chaos with chairman fighting an ego battle he can't win in the courts. Club propped up by loans year on year. More and more reliance on short term loan deals on the park. Huge pressure to win despite all of the above structural problems. Clark might be tempted to think he has a better sprinboard by punching above their weight at Kilmarnock, rather than being seen to fail at Rangers for reasons he can't control. That's the reality. Poisoned chalice.

Agree3 Disagree5

20 Mar 2018 09:07:59
Coop my good man, yesterday you wanted Preud'homme if Murty isn't kept on. Now Clarke, please clarify?

Agree2 Disagree6

20 Mar 2018 10:48:25
Every time another manager does well in the leuge we are been linked with them first mcciniss tommy wright now clark they all may be decent managers but they are all doing it for lesser clubs with no pressure on them.
For me i think we need aim for a better standard of manager to challenge celtic and progress in europa leauge.

Agree9 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 11:30:34
Snell some of you guys on here are needing to read and digest my posts properly mate! I never once said that i want michel preud'homme! I got info from a good source saying that he was under consideration! I did say before that the guy has an impressive CV! But so do a helluva lot of other managers! If you have continued to read my posts i've stated very clearly that i'd like murty to get the chance on a 12 month rolling contract! Hope that clears that up for you!

Agree7 Disagree2

20 Mar 2018 12:29:01
yep i totally understand you want Murty mate! very clear, as is the very specific 12 month rolling contract detail. think i interpreted "if the board decide to change, they should look at him" as an endorsement from you. my mistake mate. look forward to seeing who you fancy for it tomorrow 😉

Agree6 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 13:07:38
I fancy stevie clarke for the job the morra mate! 😉lol

Agree4 Disagree1

20 Mar 2018 14:54:27
At the end of the day the board should have an idea or be drawing up a shortlist and doing their due diligence on potential new managers if it's not to be Murty, I worry that if the board leave all of this until after the cup sf or worse the end of the season we could miss out on targets as other clubs aren't going to hang about. I'm putting faith in the board that whomever is in the job gets financial backing as we are still some way behind the other lot but I will back them all the way.

Agree5 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 15:01:00
Clarke won't take job too big smelltic man for that same as brenda n lemmon personally think it will be either gio or de boer for me i think gio out of the 2

Agree2 Disagree6

20 Mar 2018 15:18:22
Tryanikian, Clarke and his family are Kilmarnock fans. Google it and you’ll see.

Agree5 Disagree1

20 Mar 2018 15:30:14
Clarke would definitely bring more experience and knowledge of managing a club than Murty but if he was that good why is he at Kilmarnock? The more I think about it, I'm wondering if poor agent or nobody down south at bigger clubs thought he was any good after West Brom and Reading sackings. Owen Coyle in same boat but he didn't work out. Will kilmarnock job lead to a better job in England I'm not so sure.
Murty wants the job and its his to lose in my eye. If he lifts cup and finishes 2 nd he's hit his targets for the season. Job will be his. Onwards

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Mar 2018 16:09:00
Murty can’t be given the job it’s far too big for him. He is the u20 coach and needs to go back to that.

Agree0 Disagree3

20 Mar 2018 16:50:40
Well I am confused we brought Jimmy nic in as assistant manager to murty Supposedly because he had been a reasonably successful manager in his own right and a rangers man but he seems to be giving Murty no help whatsoever as his tactics are still as naive as they were before Jimmy turned up maybe Jimmy is priming himself for the job.

Agree0 Disagree3

20 Mar 2018 17:29:09
is Jimmy Nic's managerial record that good? Genuine question, i don't know. I think JN was brought in to show the squad the traditions and values of the club and what it means to be a Glasgow Ranger. in terms of tactics, he may well be offering his opinion but currently the buck stops with Murty and maybe he is deciding to not make use of the advice and do things his way?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 19:40:13
I agree, Snell, Jimmy Nic was going to be the man to instil some steel into the players and a proper understanding of what the club was about to both players and Murty. If you watch during games, all you see is Murty and JJ whispering to each other while Nic just sits there. I feel he is not getting his place and that all might not be well within the background team.

I'm not even convinced he was Murty's appointment because at the time the manager said There is a school of thought that everyone should be singing from the same hymn sheet and obviously I was tempted to go for a younger person, a bit like myself. But when you balance the management team up, we needed someone with a cooler head. Hopefully this is the right blend to take us forward. '
Doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement, does it?

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Mar 2018 22:43:35
As much as I like Clarke would prefer more high profile manager like Gio who knows the club culture.

Agree3 Disagree7

19 Mar 2018 21:33:58
We missed morales up top on his own smashing into defenders and being an out ball for every player. Cummings is a goalscorer that plays well in a two. Would have been a different game with fredo up top!

Agree8 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 01:18:13
I can't help but feel Morales was dropped because of the sitters he has missed but his all round play, energy, off the ball running and in particular the number of goals scored, for me, means he should have been one of the first picks.

He will be first pick next game and quite rightly so.

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Mar 2018 12:06:12
Anybody know Murty’s stated reason for dropping Morelas, gross error of judgement.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Mar 2018 12:52:14
we missed him missing sitters galore
works hard but too many sitters for me

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Mar 2018 13:16:43
"Anybody know Murty’s stated reason for dropping Morelas"
Maybe he he doesn't have a clue and gets his team selection and tactics from this page.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Mar 2018 15:10:50
Your correct STYAD he said exactly that.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Mar 2018 21:01:30
We don't have time for waiting to see if Murts is good enough or we'll be listening to 10 in a row songs until we die. Steve Clarke 4 me unless Murts delivers the cup. Killie only lost 3 in 25 with a minimal squad since he's been at the helm. That's what we need. Let's get real here.

Agree4 Disagree1

19 Mar 2018 19:35:30
I think Murty should be given a rolling contract and see how he goes, if the board don't think he has the capability to take us forward I think GVB is the man he is having a hard time at Feyenoord just now from the fans and it seems he may leave at the end of the season what a signing he would be.

Agree6 Disagree6

20 Mar 2018 06:39:27
What have you seen that makes you think mutys a good manager? He can't win at Ibrox for goodness sake and is incapable of puting a rocket up a players arse (windass) when needed.

Agree2 Disagree2

20 Mar 2018 07:59:41
6 wins and 5 defeats at home under Murty just isn’t acceptable

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Mar 2018 17:39:37
We need a manager of considerable ilk to move forward and we should be demanded it.

Too many home defeats under Murty for me, for him to be an option.

Next year, we need to hit the ground running and don’t have time to give time anymore.

Thinking Clarke or Wright are good enough for rangers is beyond me. Each week they set up 10 behind the ball, if we would’ve scored early then their only game plan is gone. So not for me.

The fellow Garcia sacked from Watford, I like, possibly Martinez dependant on how good Belgium do at the World Cup or Benitez, with enticement of Europe as he won’t win anything with Newcastle.

There’s many names in the hat I’m sure, but investment is key to moving forward and we can’t keep blaming inept managers, the board need to get it right this time and stop short changing us.

Agree2 Disagree6

19 Mar 2018 18:04:45
I think you mean Marco Silva mate, Garcia is the current Watford boss. Seen him mentioned a few times and to be honest I would support that.

Agree2 Disagree2

19 Mar 2018 18:08:25
Yeah that’s him. We need someone for sure mate

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Mar 2018 18:29:56
south americans and scottish football don't mix mate need someone that at least no, s the game

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Mar 2018 18:34:00
Doubt we could afford silva. Is he not on the merry-go-round that is managing in England like parade, alladyce etc. Think he would be good though.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Mar 2018 18:46:59
lucky he is Portuguese then Queens mate ;) although our track record there ain't great either 😕

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Mar 2018 18:50:40
So you think if Martinez does well with Belgium at the world cup ( wins it) he will come to Sevco😂😂😂😂

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Mar 2018 19:01:23
Martinez will never come to us lol. Belgium are superb and he has landed an amazing squad of players. Lucky so and so to manage them. Think they could do very well in world cup as long as boyata is nowhere to be seen lol.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Mar 2018 22:34:42
Belgium will waste their current generation of players by having that joke managing them. They could be world beaters if they had a decent manager.

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Mar 2018 07:53:04
Roberto martinez AIN'T a bad manager in my eyes certainly, gustavo! Superb at both swansea and wigan and started very well at everton! Just because a manager goes through a bad period or chain of bad events at A particular football club, doesn't mean they're bad managers! Happens to the best managers in the game! It happened to sir alex, gustavo!
