The Scottish national team are set to appoint Steve Clarke as their new boss, at least according to the Evening Times.
The national side has been without a manager since former Gers boss Alex McLeish left his position back in April.
But now, Scotland is set to appoint a replacement. And the fact it is Steve Clarke will be of real interest to several players at Rangers.
According to the Evening Times report, “Steve Clarke is set to become the next manager of Scotland, barring any hitches in negotiations.”
The Football Writer’s Manager of the Year would likely take over come the end of the season with his contract expiring at Rugby Park. Kilmarnock’s final match of the season is against Rangers this weekend.
Recently, our players have struggled to break into the side and have even been met with a frosty welcome when they have been. Will this change under Clarke?
Allan McGregor, far-and-away the country’s best goalkeeper, hung up his international gloves in March. Much to the disappointment of the country’s backroom staff [Scottish Sun]. It’s unlikely he’ll return to Scotland duty.
The likes of Ryan Jack have been regularly overlooked for a place. So much so Steven Gerrard has been left astounded as to why.
Ross McCrorie and Glenn Middleton are surely not too far from a breakthrough, whilst the returning Jamie Murphy was also beginning to cement a place in the squad before injury.
Now that it’s likely to be Steve Clarke, these Rangers players will be hoping to impress him. More than that, they’ll be hoping there’s more chance of being considered.
