Simon Jordan has claimed that he would be ‘surprised’ if Sean Dyche would take the managerial job at Rangers.

Jordan spoke on talkSPORT, about the possibility of the former Premier League boss taking charge at the Ibrox. He believes there’s a lot of uncertainty around the job.

Rangers sacked former boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst, after a year in charge. He took Gers to a Europa League Final and won a Scottish Cup.

However, their league form this season was simply not up to scratch. Rangers sit in second place in the Scottish Premiership, but they’re already nine points behind rivals Celtic.

Furthermore, their form in the Champions League was dreadful. They scored only two goals and didn’t win a single game in the group stage.

Here’s what Jordan had to say about Dyche to Rangers:

“I don’t think Sean Dyche. I’d be surprised if he goes to Rangers. I think there’s a lot of jeopardy in that job. Yeah, it’s a great big job. It’s a big job. But there was a lot of arguments about how much money was spent. After the season that’s just gone and with getting to the final of the Europa League and at the same time getting the Champions League money and not spending much of it seemingly on players. They are some way behind Celtic in terms of the performance of the Celtic team and Ange Postecoglou so I think it’s a risk.”

TIF’s view on Jordan’s comments…

We believe that Dyche to Rangers is not entirely off the table. It’s a big club with a great history, so we’re sure he’d like to take on an opportunity like that.

In addition, Dyche is a manager who is used to spending little money. If you look at his purchase history at Burnley, he wasn’t given a large wealth of money to spend on players.

With those limitations, he was able to keep Burnley in the Premier League for a number of seasons.

However, the expectations at Rangers will be very different. Some Gers fans may not want the club to appoint Dyche, due to his style of play.

So, for some Rangers supporters, they’ll see Jordan’s verdict as good news. It’ll be tough for whoever fills the shoes of van Bronckhorst. Not to mention the uphill battle they’ll have to climb to catch up with Celtic.
