Kris Commons has said that Rangers should approach Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke to take over at Ibrox at the end of the season when Graeme Murty’s contract ends, as per HITC.
Commons also says that Clarke would be a magnificent managerial candidate to take over at his former club, and Rangers’ Old Firm rivals, Celtic.
The former Reading and West Bromwich Albion head coach arrived at Rugby Park in October and has done magnificently, losing only three of his 25 games in charge.
His Kilmarnock side has also done very well against the two Glasgow giants, beating Rangers 1-0 at the weekend at Ibrox as well as 2-1 earlier in the season at Rugby Park.
In addition, Clarke’s Killie beat Celtic 1-0 in February, and in total has taken 11 points from a possible 15 against the Old Firm giants.
Kris Commons said about the possibility of Clarke going to a Glasgow club (via HITC):
They beat Celtic, they beat Rangers. This is a team that is flirting with relegation every season.
He has this remarkable gift. He doesn’t just get the most out of players – he gets more than that.
I think Celtic or Rangers, if you are in a position where you need a manager, would be smart to look at him.
So with Murty only manager until the end of the season, the board have an important decision to make in the summer. If Murty was to not stay on as Rangers manager, Clarke would be a very possible and strong candidate.
