Michael O'neill managerial history

Brechin City
Shamrock Rovers
Northern Ireland

Next Rangers manager seriously?

Hes done well at N. Ireland granted he's got a good squad.

International football is completely different from club football.

Theres no proof of how he goes about his business in the transfer window bringing players in. Can he attract big players?

Again i'm ready for the verbal onslaught but i'm 100% correct on this one.

Can he attract big players? Well to be fair to the guy would Derek McInnes or Alex McLeish or Graeme Murty. At the moment O'Neil undoubtedly has a higher profile and reputation than any of those names across Britain.

14 Nov 2017 11:01:44
Surely we've got to bring McInnes in before the Games against the Sheep!
What O'Neil has done with N. Ireland is impressive but don't fancy him for the Managers Job.

Ok der-goalie let's look at some of the points you've made. Michael O'Neil has had a 'good squad' with Northen Ireland? Really? Take a look at the clubs most of the players in that squad have come from. Apart from one Southampton and two West Brom players the rest are from the English lower leagues or the lower reaches of the spfl. There are players from Linfield, Fleetwood, Burton Albion, Rochdale, Oldham, QPR, Charlton, St Johnstone, Hearts and Ross County not only regularly in the squad but regularly playing! Yet he's managed to get them to a European Champioship and the play offs to the World Cup where by all accounts they were the better team and should of qualified. What that tells me is that he's an excellent man manager and is able to take a group of average players and get them to compete at a level way above where they are normally at. Which I personally think is an extremely important feature of any manager, especially whoever it is that becomes our next manager seeing as we can not compete with Celtic financially or in terms of quality of players just now so we will need to be better organised as a team instead.
Next your point about attracting players. The fact that we now have a director of football and at last a decent scouting team in place suggests that the next manager will have a limited role in terms of player attraction. Yes he will probably still have a final input but the job of identifying and attracting new players will mainly fall to the scouting network and the director of football. The next manager will focus much more on putting the team on the park and being able to bring them together to get results where previously we have struggled, something that Michael O'Neil has shown he is very capable of with Northen Ireland. Personally out of all the 'candidates' suggested I feel he is the strongest option.

I agree with you Ger 78 Michael O'Neill is a very strong candidate. To add to your points he may not be a"Rangers man" but he played over 200 games of his career in Scotland, picked quite a few Scottish based players for Northern Ireland so must have seen a fair bit of recent Scottish football knowledge and still lives in Scotland. He may be limited in club management experience but like with NI he over achieved with Shamrock Rovers making them the first LoI side ever to get to the Europa League group stage. Plus his current assistant, "Rangers man" Jimmy Nichol has said when he leaves NI he wants to go back into club management so that might give us the nod over Scotland. Depends who he's up against though -I'd pretty torn if it winds up between him and Gio (if he's even interested) given his history with us and his recent managerial success in Holland.

Great points Ger78,totally agree with you on this and I would like to add that he sticks around a lot longer than most managers and motivates players and gets them working as a unit, in my opinion he would be a first class choice, Catholic or whatever, and if we happen to get Mciness I really feel it will all end in tears and regrets, I don't think he can handle the bigger games, it's ok beating eight teams in the SPL and winning games in the cups against diddy teams, his record against the manky mob and in Europe is terrible. But I suppose if some people on here want to enjoy finishing second then he is your man, sorry not for me by a country mile.

14 Nov 2017 12:47:29
Totally agree 100% with you guys, any manager is a risk and Michael O’Neill doesn’t have the trophies on his CV (neither does McInnes. I think he’s a better option than McInnes, he is untested at European club level but for me that better than “failed at European club level”. If we can’t go and get a Gio van Bronckhorst or the like then we will have to see who does fall into the budget we have for transfers and wages etc.

14 Nov 2017 12:48:36
oneil has done a great job at northern ireland but managing a country is completly diffrent they all want to play for each other and bond as a team and is no disrupition
where at club level this is not always the case good internional manager club manager questionable
for me either gio or mccinnis should get the job

14 Nov 2017 13:01:50
O'neil has done a great job on the international side which is completely different from going into todays market and spending money to better a team.

he for me hasn't got the experience to be our manager.

mcinnes has proven he can make a team better and make players he has better players and has to be the man for the job.

we don't want managers to intice players we want players that would love to play for a massive club like the mighty glasgow rangers

14 Nov 2017 15:19:01
If he works well with poor players he should be a stand out with you guys lol.

14 Nov 2017 15:40:14
get in the mighty mcinnes for the mighty glasgow rangers never heard so much drivel in my puff, why so many people pushing for mcinnes is beyond belief they can't see as far as the end of their noses

14 Nov 2017 19:20:30
Look what your manager done with your poor players after he replaced big Ronny Rayman

14 Nov 2017 23:12:37
They wernt poor players mate they were under performing.
You add Moussa, an experienced KT, Sinclair, and a new player in Forrest and u have a good team.
Are your players under performing or have they just found their level because I can't see 1 player who is a stand out can you?
