IT’S CONFIRMED !!! – Rangers want to hire Liverpool chief for senior Ibrox role………..

Rangers are eyeing up a move to hire Alex Inglethorpe as their new director of football, according to Alan Nixon.

The Sun journalist reported via his Patreon account on Sunday (5 November) that the Liverpool academy manager is in the frame for the job at Ibrox with his name being mentioned in Govan due to a failure to hire Sam Jewell from Brighton.

It is understood that Inglethorpe is seen as a “left-field option” by the Gers, who are still hunting down a replacement for Ross Wilson after he left his sporting director role at Ibrox at the end of last season.

Good pedigree

If Rangers do hire Inglethorpe, they’ll be taking a bit of a chance because he’s never done this role before.

He’s currently the academy director at Liverpool, which is a big job in itself and can show that he’s great at recruiting up-and-coming youngsters.

But what about setting out teams of scouts to scour Europe – or beyond – to find players who can instantly slot into the first team at Ibrox and also be responsible for hiring managers?

It’s a massive job, way bigger than what Inglethorpe is currently doing.

However, this is a man who’s worked at Tottenham in the past and for Liverpool for a long time.

Undoubtedly, the former striker for Watford and Leyton Orient has a vast network of contacts from his time spent at two of the top clubs in England.

It will be fascinating to watch whether this moves forward because Wilson’s replacement hiring process has been excruciatingly sluggish and cannot be beneficial to the team in the long run.

In the end, the absence of a director of football or sports director meant that Michael Beale signed any player he pleased in the summer only to be fired a few months later for squandering millions of dollars.

Rangers must not permit such to occur once more.
