Former footballer and now presenter Curtis Woodhouse has tipped Sean Dyche to replace Giovanni van Bronckhorst at Rangers after the manager was sacked.
Despite some talk that he could be safe during the break for the World Cup, after just 12 months in charge at Ibrox, the Dutchman was fired this week amid a run of poor form and unconvincing results in Scotland.
Naturally, this vacancy will provoke much conversation about who will now come in for the Light Blues as the new man in charge, and one name has already been touted.
Taking to Twitter, Woodhouse said: “I think Dyche would do great.”

TIF thoughts on Sean Dyche and Rangers…
If the manager was to take over at Rangers, he would certainly arrive with a wealth of high-level experience. Indeed, he won the English second division with his former side, and took charge of 258 Premier League games.
What’s more, Dyche, who was hailed for his ‘unbelievable’ job at Burnley, has recently spoken about personally knowing sporting director Ross Wilson, telling TalkSport (via The Scotsman): “I do know Ross Wilson at Rangers and if he’d like to invite me to the Old Firm derby – I’ve never been – then he should. I’ve heard so many stories and I’d love to do it. I worked with Ross at Watford.”
Taking it all into account, it certainly wouldn’t be a shock if the former Burnley man is one of the main candidates targeted for this new position.
