Beale is sacked as Alex Rae joins the new Ibrox management team!

Seven matches into the SPFL season Micky Beale has been sacked with Steve Davis crawling into the manager’s chair for as long as it takes to find a successor.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst lasted 366 days in the job with his successor cutting almost two months off that with four bruising defeats to Celtic on his CV.

He was in charge for 43 matches which also included two defeats from Aberdeen, a Champions League hammering from PSV Eindhoven and an SPFL defeat at Kilmarnock.

Steve Davis has hung around Ibrox recovering from injury and will now take over as manager with Alex Rae joining the management team after helping Reading to get relegated from the Championship last season.

In January 2022 Rae laughed off the signing by Celtic of utility man Reo Hatate while talking up the loan deal that brought James Sands to Ibrox on loan.

At 8.35pm tonight the club announced:

RANGERS Football Club can confirm it has parted company with men’s first-team manager, Michael Beale.

The Rangers board would like to put on record their thanks to Michael and his staff for their efforts since joining the club last November.

Results this season have fallen short of what everyone connected to Rangers would expect.

Therefore, the decision was reached today to terminate the contract of the manager, as well as the contracts of coaches Neil Banfield, Damian Matthew, Harry Watling and Jack Ade.

The club is pleased to announce that Steven Davis will lead the interim management team.

The team will consist of former Rangers player and hugely experienced coach Alex Rae, former Rangers player and current coach Steven Smith, coach Brian Gilmour, and goalkeeping coach, Colin Stewart.

Davis will be in charge against ARIS Limassol on Thursday followed by Sunday’s SPFL match away to St Mirren.

The Irishman is neither the Brains Behind Beale or a wizard on the training ground.

While Beale had 21 matches managing QPR before his move to Ibrox Davis has never managed at any level at all.
