Frank Lampard walks away from Ibrox job

After a day of mounting speculation Frank Lampard has pulled out of contention for the managerial vacancy at Ibrox.

Over the last few days the leading media messengers have been narrowing the field down to the former Everton boss and Kevin Muscat.

Ibrox CEO James Bisgrove missed out on the sunshine jolly to Cyprus and was reported to have held talks in London with Lampard about the job vacated by Micky Beale.

There was an overwhelmingly negative reaction to the prospect of appointing Lampard by Ibrox fans on social media but missing out on a high profile out of work boss that is a self declared fan of the club isn’t a good look.

Unless there are rapid plans for Muscat to come to the UK it looks likely that Steve Davis and Alex Rae will continue in place through the international break.

The lack of an obvious replacement helped keep Beale in a job following the September 3 defeat from Celtic, it seems that over the course of a month little progress has been made towards finding someone prepared to take on the mess left behind by the Brains Behind Gerrard.

Beale brought in eight permanent signings during the summer, all on long term contracts, with only goalkeeper Jack Butland an improvement on the player that he replaced.

Cyriel Dessers has been the biggest fall guy but like Sam Lammers he is on a contract that runs until 2027.

There has been no official comment from Bisgrove or Chairman John Bennett since Beale was sacked but Chris Jack and the Rangers Review are probably closed to the club than the golden relationship that James Traynor and the Daily Record enjoyed with Dave Murray.

    More chance the scums representatives, met up with those from DUREX about a shirt sponsorship deal, than meeting lampard.
    More appropriate anyway
