Ex-Porto boss Vitor Pereira has been mentioned alongside the Rangers job after leaving his previous role at Brazilian club Corinthians.

The Portuguese coach becomes the latest name to be considered alongside the role at Ibrox which is currently filled by an ever-increasingly under pressure Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

An injury-ravaged Rangers have ambled to the World Cup break with the pressure on the Dutchman after dropping seven points against Livingston, St Mirren and St Johnstone.

Rangers are now nine points behind Celtic in the title race with plenty calling for change at Ibrox as the Boardroom takes its time making a decision.

Rangers linked to Vitor Pereira after Corinthians exit

Whilst the Ibrox hierarchy take a breath, Rangers fans everywhere are already discussing plenty of alternatives with Vitor Pereira the latest name to be considered.

That’s according to the Daily Record, who claim “another candidate enters the field” after the ex-Fenerbahce coach left Corinthians in mysterious circumstances.

They are claiming that the manager “will likely” throw his CV onto Ross Wilson’s desk if Giovanni van Bronckhorst is sacked at Rangers.

The decision for Vitor Pereira to leave Corinthians was announced by tweet by the Brazilian club and there has been some conjecture regarding the manner of the exit.

The Daily Record claim the Portuguese was sacked whilst the Liverpool Echo claim Pereira opted against extending his contract.

The Merseyside paper has a vested interest in the manager’s sacking given Vitor Pereira was interviewed by Everton ahead of Frank Lampard getting the Toffees job.

It’s another name for Rangers fans to mull over as the club’s fans stew on a five-week World Cup break following an unceremonious collapse domestically and in the Champions League.

Whilst there are plenty calling for the head of Giovanni van Bronckhorst, it remains to be seen if Rangers will pull the trigger with the club silent on the matter as the Dutchman heads home for a short stint.

Meanwhile, one highly-rated Euro coach has appeared to rule himself out of the Ibrox running.
