Rangers are looking for a new manager after Steven Gerrard decided that his time at Ibrox was to come to an end and that the Aston Villa role was one that was “a big risk but too good to turn down”.

The Light Blues would have been hoping that they could have had the former Liverpool legend in the dugout for a little longer than they had him, especially after they managed to win the Scottish Premiership under him and start their defence incredibly well.

Nonetheless, Gerrard is nothing but a memory for the Gers now and many will already be looking at the top casino bonus offers available on netti-kasino.org as they look to ease the pain and suffering that they may have experienced following his swift departure.

Rangers have the unenviable task of trying to find themselves a new manager, and according to a report by Sky Sports, it would seem that they have managed to whittle their shortlist of potential new hires to just three final candidates.

One of those in the running for the job is a former player, Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

It has been claimed that the former defender has held “positive” talks with the club already over the weekend in London, and is understood to be a candidate that sporting director Ross Wilson is thought to be considering.

The talks are claimed to have been focused on the Dutchman’s vision in regards to the short and long-term aims of Rangers and it is said that his ideas and values were matched by the club, thus making him a very strong contender.

One man that is not thought to be in the running or on the three-man shortlist to replace Gerrard is his former England midfield team-mate, Frank Lampard.

Currently, Rangers have placed David McCallum, Brian Gilmour, Jermain Defoe and Colin Stewart in charge of first-team affairs ahead of what will be a busy period for the team on the pitch once the international break is over.

The club will have a fixture in the League Cup – a semi-final tie against Hibernian – as well as a UEFA Europa League group match against Sparta Prague, plus key matches away from Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership.

Van Bronckhorst could be an inspired appointment and one that will already know the club and Glasgow extremely well, but whether he will be able to hit the ground running and produce the results that Stevie G was acquiring remains to be seen should he be given the role.
