Graham Potter one of favourites to become new Rangers manager

Rangers Football Club are reportedly eyeing former Chelsea and Brighton manager Graham Potter as a potential replacement for Michael Beale, who was dismissed from his position earlier this week.

Michael Beale was sacked after a disappointing start to the SPFL season including an early Champions League exit in the play-off round where they were humiliated by PSV.

The Ibrox side are already 7 points adrift of fierce rivals Celtic – they currently sit 3rd in the table which is simply not good enough, especially for a big club like Rangers.

Rangers are currently without a manager and they could turn their attention to former Brighton and Chelsea boss Graham Potter who has been out of work since his sacking at Stamford Bridge.

Potter had the lowest points-per-game return of any Chelsea manager,  he managed 31 games, losing 11, and leaving Chelsea in 11th place in the Premier League at the time of his dismissal.

Kevin Muscat is the current favourite for the Rangers managerial position at 3/1 – the former Millwall defender succeeded former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou at Yokohoma F. Marinos.

He won the J-League title in 2022, but a potential move to Scotland could prove a more difficult challenge.

We will see in due course whether the rumours amount to anything more than just rumours but it would be a fresh start for Graham Potter after a horrid time at Chelsea.
