I accept that the board are unlikely to do it now as it would make them look even more foolish, but I can't understand the negativity towards Big Eck. One criticism is that he inherited Big Dick's team which is true but Dick failed against O'Neill and from that point Eck was asked to continually downsize by scrambling about in the free transfer market. I think it's to his credit that he qualified for the last 16 of the champions league with players like Namouchi in the team. He won 7 trophies in 4 and 1/ 2 years at Ibrox with a better win ratio than Walters second stint after a similar amount of games albeit over a longer period. He took over Walters Scotland side and has the best win ratio of any Scotland manager over the last 20 years although it wasn't many games. With Birmingham he won a trophy in English football which aside from Moyes' community shield none of the other names mentioned have. He had a stellar playing career landing trophies and international caps. Perhaps Mark Allen could furnish him with some exciting young players and he could succeed with someone else team once again. He's won more silverware than all the other names combined. For those who say it is a backwards step, I would say this is Scottish Fitba' we don't need a tactical genius. For the moment I am behind Murty who has earned our support and praise but just feel he is out of his comfort zone as someone else mentioned he resembled Kenny MacDowell after the Dundee game.

Keep Believing.

Bigmarv I can’t argue with any of that except I think murtys got more going for him than he’s giving credit for
I wasn’t all that keen either with Mcinnis getting the nod and I’m happy it didn’t happen but getting Mcleish it wouldn’t be the worst appointment and by no means a step down in my eyes and first choice or not I think he’d come back to rangers with no dramas at all

I honestly don’t think any rangers fan truly wanted McInnes as it’s just as much of a gamble as Caixinha was as he’s never managed a big club and had the pressure of media etc with a big club so he could of crumbled I mean let’s be honest he wasn’t exactly a club legend as a player I wouldn’t even play him in today’s team so let him stay with the sheep he can’t take them any further than 3rd round of europa and loves to loan celtic players so rangers wouldn’t work for him and every fan I’ve spoke to doesn’t know who we should get obv just asking their opinion and everyone has said the same thing shrug of the shoulders and a shake of the head cause nobody knows not one guy stands out I would take Mcleish as I understand we need experience on other hand I like what Murtys doing why don’t we honk outside the box and do what I think Iceland done and have two first team managers working together one experienced and the other learning but also having as much influence I don’t know how they worked it but they are doing well . just another idea to throw out their lol whoever the man that gets it is a lucky guy and should be honoured to be in charge of the most successful club in the world and will get 100% support from our support even the moners will back him cause we are the people!

A step down or a step back from what, we have not had decent standards in years. So to get mcleish back would be a step forward because he is a manager who has actually accomplished things.

i agree eith all you said but big eck was on a downward trend his last few jobs

09 Dec 2017 20:13:18
McLeish, with murty as his assistant?

Keep saying it - big Eck and Murty. It's a no brainer
