Rangers next manager odds: Van Bronckhorst leads Martin, McInnes and Lampard in battle to replace Gerrard

GIOVANNI VAN BRONCKHORST is the favourite to replace Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.

Gerrard has been appointed Villa boss after three and a half years in Glasgow.


And Betfair have priced former Rangers and Arsenal ace Van Bronckhorst as the favourite to take over in Scotland.

Gerrard departs having won the league – breaking Celtic's dominance -and leaves with Rangers four points clear this year and with their European hopes in their own hands.

Van Bronckhorst won the Dutch league with Feyenoord in 2017 during a four-year spell as their manager.

He left Chinese side Guangzhou after less than a year though and has been out of work since, but is keen on another role.

Swansea boss Russell Martin was linked with the job last night and is second favourite at 3/1 ahead of Derek McInnes at 7/2 and Frank Lampard at 12/1.

Martin spent six months on loan at Rangers from Norwich under Graeme Murty.

The former defender has impressed in his short time as a manager and joined Swansea from MK Dons earlier this year.

McInnes played for Rangers in the 90s and rejected the job at Ibrox while at Aberdeen but left them in March and is still out of work

Rangers sporting Director, Ross Wilson, added: “Firstly I want to say thank you to Steven for the work, dedication and professionalism with which he has diligently carried out the role of Rangers Manager.

“Steven and his backroom staff have ensured that the club is undoubtedly in a better place today than it was three-and-a-half years ago.

"I joined Steven on that journey just over two years ago and from the first day we met, I have enjoyed all aspects of our partnership.

“We have shared a desire to move Rangers forward, to modernise our infrastructure and to make the club win again.

"There have been so many areas that we have moved forward, and there is still so much to be done, but I can’t stress enough how important it has been to have with us a first team manager who shared a drive and desire to set standards and move the whole football operation forward."
