Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou is one of a number of high-profile names linked to take over at Everton where ex-Rangers star Nathan Patterson is staring down potential Premier League relegation.
The Toffees have just sacked Frank Lampard after a woeful run of one win in 14 games culminated in the weekend’s 2-0 defeat to West Ham United in London.
The result leaves Everton in 19th place in the Premier League table, joint bottom on 15 points with Southampton and two points from safety in the relegation zone.
Goodison Park bosses have taken the decision to sack Frank Lampard after almost a year in charge, with the Chelsea legend previously taking over from Rafa Benitez.
Rangers fans have been following the situation closely due to the status of ex-Ibrox right-back Nathan Patterson, who remains a popular figure amongst the club’s support.
The boyhood bluenose and Scotland talent joined Everton under Benitez in a reported £16m deal last January and now looks set to have his third manager in less than 12 months at the club.

According to the Daily Mail, that might also be Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou who is reportedly one of a number of names in the running at Everton.
Whilst Argentine manager Marcelo Bielsa is the favourite, ex-Burnley boss Sean Dyche and West Ham’s ex-Everton boss David Moyes are also under consideration.
Nathan Patterson might not have expected to be working under Ange Postecoglou when he first signed for Everton but football is a funny old game and you just never know.
After injury disturbed Nathan’s start to life on Merseyside, the 21-year-old defender has played 15 times for the Premier League outfit this season.
Speaking earlier in the campaign, Nathan Patterson also hinted at a return to Rangers in the future.
