Money talks for next boss

Evening Times - - SPORT - By CHRIS JACK

GOR­DON SMITH reck­ons any po­ten­tial Rangers boss will have their own ques­tions for the Light Blues board be­fore they put pen to pa­per.

The Gers are con­tin­u­ing their search for Pe­dro Caix­inha’s re­place­ment and in­terim boss Graeme Murty could re­main in charge for the visit of Hamil­ton this week­end.

And for­mer Ibrox striker and di­rec­tor of foot­ball Smith knows the bot­tom line will fea­ture high up the list of pri­or­i­ties for the prospec­tive can­di­dates.

He said: “I don’t be­lieve an in­ter­view will be re­quired if they have iden­ti­fied who they want.

“How­ever, that per­son will want to know the bud­get at their dis­posal.

“They will want funds to help take the club for­ward. That will worry some can­di­dates.

“There are out-of-work man­agers who would take the job, re­gard­less of the fi­nan­cial po­si­tion.

“Those in a job, look­ing to pro­tect their rep­u­ta­tion, will look very closely at the bud­get.”
