Rangers boss hunt: Follow Follow editor points out errors in Record piece

Follow Follow editor Mark Dingwall has pointed out several errors in a Daily Record piece about Rangers’ talks with Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

GVB is currently the favourite to replace Steven Gerrard as Rangers manager, although during a dramatic Tuesday afternoon that saw fans tracking flights and reading into tweets from ex-players, Sky Sports News insisted that he wasn’t the only candidate left in the running.

On Tuesday night, the Daily Record ran their own ‘exclusive’ on Rangers’ hunt for a new boss.

The piece gave details on talks between the Gers and GVB earlier that day ‘on the outskirts of the city’ and claimed that Rangers will now take ‘at least 24 hours’ before returning to the Dutchman with any offer in writing.

The article then goes on to suggest that despite the looming Premier Sports Cup semi-final with Hibernian on Sunday, GVB won’t want to officially start work until a full backroom team is assembled, while Rangers are also wary of making an announcement at an inappropriate time given that an official memorial for Walter Smith is taking place at Glasgow Cathedral on Friday.

He asserted that GVB didn’t fly into Glasgow on Tuesday nor did discussions take place on the outskirts of the city, while he also suggested that it won’t take Rangers as long as 24 hours to table a formal offer.

Dingwall’s claim about the contract offer could potentially be a boost for impatient fans who want to see GVB installed as manager as soon as possible.

For now, though, the interim team of David McCallum, Brian Gilmour, Jermain Defoe and Colin Stewart will continue the preparations for the Hibs clash.

In other news, a Rangers star scored again on international duty on Tuesday but he ended up on the losing side.
