Rangers manager odds: Michael Beale favourite as big name EPL bosses enter frame

Rangers are on the hunt for a new manager following the sacking of Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

The Dutchman was removed from his post after a poor run of results saw the Ibrox side slip nine points behind Celtic in the title race, and crash out of Europe with the worst Champions League group stage record in history.

The decision over who replaces him in the Ibrox hotseat is sure to spark much speculation and debate over the coming days as the Rangers board weigh up their options.

Steven Gerrard, the man Van Bronckhorst replaced this time last year, was installed as the initial favourite to return to the Ibrox hotseat, but his odds have since widened.

His former first-team coach at Rangers and Aston Villa, Michael Beale, has emerged as the new odds-on favourite after taking his first steps into management with Queens Park Rangers during the summer.
