Rangers boss Michael Beale has post on Instagram congratulating former Sao Paolo manager Rogerio Ceni on landing the manager’s job at Bahia.

Ex-Liverpool and Chelsea youth coach Michael Beale spent time in Brazil working under Rogerio Ceni back in January 2017.

Beale would then spend six months working under the legendary former Brazilian goalkeeper, who is recognised as the stopper who has scored the most goals in football history.

Taking to Instagram, Michael Beale congratulated Rogerio Ceni on taking the job with Bahia as he sets about trying to arrest a stumbling run of form which sees the club 16th in the Brazilian Campeonato.

The Michael Beale Instagram statement reads: “Good luck Rogerio and Charles Hembert [Ceni’s assistant] on your new journey with EC Bahia.”

Michael Beale sends Instagram message to Rogerio Ceni

Rangers boss Michael Beale sends the message to Rogerio Ceni during a troubling time in his own Ibrox career.

There have been major calls from within the support to sack the manager following an underwhelming start to the new season in Glasgow.

Having suffered Premiership defeats to Kilmarnock and Celtic, Rangers are also out of the Champions League after being humiliated by PSV Eindhoven.

So far the club’s summer signings are also yet to hit the ground running and the situation surrounding Michael Beale’s Instagram account has been piquing the interest of fans.

Firstly, the Rangers manager began posting a series of snaps with his family as if to show that he’s focusing on the more important things in life.

Then, in a twist which is enough to send social media haywire these days, Michael Beale changed his Instagram profile picture to himself during his time with QPR.

Having previously been an image of Beale during his time with Rangers, the move has prompted some discussion surrounding the manager’s future at Ibrox.

But as things stand Michael Beale is being tasked as the man to stop the rot at Ibrox and he’ll be hoping Rogerio Ceni can do the same in Brazil.
