There's a well known poster on Follow Follow (kletus kassady), who is ITK, saying that Beale won't be here much longer. Loads of reports Muscat has been approached. Heart and Hand reporting it.

A lot of people saying want Knutsen

I'd prefer Muscat as he has done it with two different teams in different leagues has knowledge of markets that will be cheaper than Europe and is a former player.

Knutsen has only done it with one club and has never left his own country it would be a big culture shock for him also never had much playing career

Gattuso I love the idea of seeing him as manager but the reality is his track record is quite poor.

I think a lot of fans are going to be disappointed if they think the board will sack Beale over 1 result.
PSV were far better than us so he's not getting sacked over that game.
Sunday may have put up some red flags for the board but I think they will give him to December unless we have a bad run after the break.

It's not one result though is it? It's the lack of style, it's the loss to killie, Aberdeen, Celtic on more than one occasion and the manner of the defeat Vs PSV. He got to pick his players and he got the rebuild he wanted. It's not working. He has no credit in the bank and toxicity around the club isn't fading. if anything going by social media and discussions with friends it's getting more intense.

He's in trouble. The other part is the club haven't given him a public vote of confidence and would the club come out and say yeah we've approached Muscat? Of course not.

I expect he will get longer but it's not deserving and there are no signs it will work. We shall see though.

8.) 05 Sep 2023
05 Sep 2023 14:45:57
I will be in the minority but I wouldn’t sack him just now. Admittedly our start to the season has been underwhelming to say the least but I want to see how the team perform after the International break and take it from there.

9.) 05 Sep 2023
05 Sep 2023 14:46:48
The club are hardly likely to announce anything until there's something definite in place, are they? We'll all just have to wait and see if anything develops either way.

Totally agree unfortunately NRD. Heard many saying he will be given to Xmas period minimum to see if we can close the gap and win the league cup. Are these fans mad . talkimg about closing the gap already and we've only played 4 games! As for the league cup, who really cares? Cups are great if doing well in the only domestic trophy that matters! If he is given til xmas the league will be over by then. 100%.

How is he to blame for the PSV game.
Firstly they were far superior to us.
Secondly how is he to blame for Goldsons own goal.
Thirdly he picked the team we all wanted to start. A manager can only influence so many things but when you get beat off a better team then you just have to hold your hands up.

12.) 05 Sep 2023
05 Sep 2023 15:03:07
He doesn't deserve to be given more time, he needs removed straight away. For the ones who say a new manager won't win the league, neither will this bufoon, so what's the difference? Get him out now, and give him a one way ticket back to London. Beale ball? Ha! Beale BS, and nothing more.

13.) 05 Sep 2023
05 Sep 2023 15:10:46
Would rather see a more seasoned coach who is tactically astute and who has a broad experience of various leagues and has won trophies and is not a buddy buddy coach with players - someone who needs respect and is not averse to making changes when required - I know this is a big ask but we have had too many softies here since the Great Sir Walter led the team on and off the field.

14.) 05 Sep 2023

I think there is a strong possibility of Craig Moore being installed as DoF and Muscat as new first team coach.

15.) 05 Sep 2023

He’s to blame because he is the manager, he picks the players he sets them up tactically. I’ve been a Rangers fan long enough to have seen plenty of losses but the manner in which we are playing is the biggest concern for the fans. We are absolutely clueless, how many more key games does he need to lose. It will be interesting to see how good PSV are in the CL.

16.) 05 Sep 2023
05 Sep 2023 15:35:36
NRD that statement is madness mate. How can he be blamed for PsV? No one is disputing they are a better team but we shouldn’t be getting beat 5-1. Goldsons own goal doesn’t make a difference to the overall performance and if it wasn’t for Butland it could have been 6/ 7+. We beat better teams than PSV on the way to Seville. Defeat agaisnt a better team is one thing hit a demolition is another. He’s out his depth.

The Daily Rag are rubbishing the Muscat rumours. so expect him to be Rangers manager before the international break finishes.

We now have a Chairman and a CEO that are massively successful in their chosen careers as their CV's show and the very fact that our Chairman plans to be full time with the Club from Summer 2024 suggests that there ar significant plans for the future.
They most certainly will not want to go into the 2024 / 25 season with a lame duck manager or in a situation where they need to spend the summer recruiting a new coaching team. For that reason, if Beale is to be relieved of his duties then I would expect it to happen before the end of December 2023, (and by then we should certainly know whether he has turned things round, can still win the league and is progressing in the Europa Cup. For what it is worth we will also know how we are doing in the League Cup.
In terms of who might replace Beale, I have no idea but I would like to see us appoint a top manager, ideally with a Scottish Assistant that is a Rangers Supporter.

NRD how is it only one game? This season celtic kille and psv granted psv were better but it was the manner of the defeat that’s the problem we have no identity no tactics nothing. Also he didn’t beat Celtic in any game that mattered last season I can’t believe people think this is the man to lead us to a title.

20.) 05 Sep 2023
05 Sep 2023 16:00:02
Are we knee jerking a bit . We do have a decent squad with exception of strikers whom we have brought in to replace better players The PSV game aside we can make a case for having won every other games this season.

05 Sep 2023 16:07:25
Guys I'm not champion him to stay in the job. Do I think he is the right man? Probably not. I just don't want us to be that club that hires and fires on the basis of a couple of bad results. I agree the manager shoulders most of the responsibility for defeats. Personally I don't like that but I get it. He signed these players and I still don't see a formation or style of play. That's on him. His tactics on Sunday were abysmal and again that's on him. All I'm saying is this board signed him and backed him with the money to buy his players. I just think they will wait a few months to see if he can turn it round.

PSV had a bid from Brentford of £38m for Bakayoko about a week ago. Sangari is worth just as much, and is just as good. They had a £12m CB on the pitch when they played us. Even Scotland’s YPOTY was on their bench in, Malik Tillman. It was Tillman that made the difference for us against PSV last season, now he plays for them. This just shows what a shambles the club is.

I don’t expect Rangers to be able to beat teams with multiple wingers worth tens of millions. Not after a summer rebuild. Rangers punched well above their weight in Europe for years under Gerrard and the squad we had at that time. We are nowhere near that level anymore. PSV on the other hand are vastly improved from last season.

I’m certainly not surprised PSV beat us. PSV could turn Celtic over in Holland with that scoreline just as easily at the moment. I think people need to wake up a bit.

Storm we can't really count last season as he was left with a bit of a rubbishshow. Kent and Morelos were horrific and Kamara had chucked it. Bit unfair to blame him as the league was already gone when he came in. I agree with you regarding style of play though. Personally I think he's trying to be too smart in regards to tactics and now he's panicking who fits in where. I said in an earlier post his decision to stick with Dessers when clearly not fit and quite frankly not that good could be his downfall.

NRD, the trouble is that even although he took over and Kent, Morelos and Kamara had all chucked, he was still able to get the remaining players playing better and fighting for the jersey . Yeah we lost 3 OF games but in two of them we would have done better with a bit of luck, better reffing and individuals not making horrendous errors. He got the players playing but now he has lost a lot of those players, mostly by choice, and the players he has brought in are poor replacements, It is the lack of any plan, poor tactics and bad signings that have turned the support against him. Forget PSV, he had the chance to beat a depleted and poor Celtic team on Sunday and blew it . Win that and nobody would really have been bothering about the PSV game .

“He got the players playing but now he has lost a lot of those players, mostly by choice, and the players he has brought in are poor replacements, It is the lack of any plan, poor tactics and bad signings that have turned the support against him. ”

Rangers were a failing side getting beat 4-0 by Celtic prior to Beale coming in. He instantly made us more competitive in the Old Firm games. Beale also had one of the best starts of any Rangers manager in history. We were 14 games unbeatean at one point. We actually finished the season with 92 points which is enough to win it most years.

Yes, Beale got rid of last years squad. Did he have a choice? No. We as a fanbase would not have tolerated going into this season with the exact same team as last year again. We demanded a massive rebuild, mate. I listened to the press conferences and the guy from Heart and Hand said to Beale we need a dozen in, and a dozen out.

Also, you don't know how good or bad these new signings are because you haven’t seen enough of them. When Ange first took over Celtic quickly found himself 6 points behind in the league, and eliminated from the CL by a team from Denmark. However, over time Ange’s team was able to gel. It them improved quite dramatically. Rather than sack him Celtic gave the guy some time to see what his team could do. We could learn something from that.

I'd also add that Ange came from the other side of the world, never played for Celtic, and was a mediocre footballer for South Melbourne for 10 years. So it confuses me when people say we need a British manger, or some that use to play for Rangers, of has impressive experience as a player, etc.

We can't count last season NRD really! Filunny I remember the club judging McCall on less time and he never even got a proper transfer window and lost his job based on two legs Vs Motherwell with a team that want his.

Beale has signed 11 players and we are just as bad if not worse and further down road age wise with guys like goldson Tav I would not trust Beale with more funds and player that is brought to Ibrox should be intended to be in first 11 buying players for squad position is like aiming to fail.

And fail he has.

I’d give him more time. Sunday was the first time against Celtic that I thought the defeat was down to him. As has been pointed out individual errors have cost us against them. I think when you bring in a new manager once the season has started, it’s only held against them in their first full season which has been seen with Gio and Beale.

35.) 05 Sep 2023
05 Sep 2023 22:48:14
Sconnor you do realise Beale was in charge last season as well? Or you so short sighted you only look at this season. He's managed us against Celtic what 5 times? Won only once? Behave yourself and look at the bigger picture.

He also lost to Aberdeen 2-0 last season. 1-0 to killie this season. The players look lost. You can't see that well that's up to you.

36.) 06 Sep 2023
06 Sep 2023 02:42:46
GP - you can make a case for winning games all you want, reality is we lost to Killie, Celtic and were embarrassed by PSV after limping past USG.

The biggest issue for me is that I can't see what Beale is trying to do. He brought in 3 central strikers and only plays 1 through the middle. He brought in Cifuentes to play a role he doesn't look comfortable in and Dowell to sit on the bench whilst leaving the defence without any strengthening. There is all the hallmarks here of another season being squandered away. Rodgers will get things going over there, he is a proven manager. We are going to end up in trouble if we need to do a big rebuuld again next summer.

37.) 06 Sep 2023

Don't think just soul destroying defeats but the trend he has implanted with new players, strategy, style etc. He's spent 10m on bugger all, either that he doesn't know how to make them play. Had high hope as he was allegedly SG main man. Sure don't look like now. Now calmed down bit, not one for knee jerk changes, for instance Sakala, he burning it up, but because @@@@ league, I don't know. Thinking if we're still languishing 3rd in Nov. off he pops.

VerdantAbyss my comments about how he came in and got the players playing was actually a plus point in Beales favour as far as I was concerned but he has made the decision to change the whole squad . Yes we wanted changes but McGregor, Helander, Morelos and Kent were all leaving . Davis should have been freed also and Kamara was desperate to be sold. That means we wouldn`t have been going in with the same squad. He decided to keep Jack but not Arfield . He decided to get rid of Colak and Sakalas goals and not give Hagi a chance to get fit. He`s the manager and that is his job BUT the players he brought in so far are not up to the task and he is not playing most of them while favouring Matondo, and a half fit Roofe and Lawrence. He brought in Balogun but rushed Goldson back for the Killie game after not playing a minute in pre season . He has spent money, left the squad unbalanced and doesn`t trust most of the players he has brought in. No comparison to Ange who did lose a couple of games while actually bedding in his new players and his new style of play . We don`t play our new players and don`t have a style of play.
