BILLY DAVIES is the 1-1 favourite with McBookie.com to be the new Rangers manager following the news Ally McCoist has officially left the club. He is followed in the betting by Stuart McCall.
However, assistant manager Kenny McDowall will take over his duties until the end of the season so the next boss won’t be appointed until after then.
Paul Petrie, McBookie.com spokesman, said: “It will be interesting to see if the board have anyone lined up but if the rumours and money is to be believed then it will be Davies. He started the process as a 6-1 shot but has been well cut.”
Davies has been the in the frame all week in Scotland but whether he gets might depend on who makes the call with Derek Llambias recently appointed as chief executive. Does Newcastle Mike Ashley make the call or will he be advising former St James’ Park sidekick Llambias.
Scott Allott reckons “McCoist will be spending a lot of time in the Charles Greenhouse now he’s on gardening leave”. My drive needs power washed – anyone got Ally’s number?
Next Rangers Manager (McBookie prices): 1-1 B Davies, 6-1 S McCall, 8-1 T Butcher, D Wise, 16-1 R Gattuso, 20-1 D McInnes, G Zola, 25-1 G Durie, D Adams, T Sherwood, 33-1 Bar.
