It's more about the league we're in than the club itself.

There are people out there who would still see managing Rangers as an end in itself. Hopefully one of them will be chosen to be our next assistant manager, so that the meek really might inherit the Earth one day.

Trying to think who they may be. Steven Davis? Kevin Thomson? Both have potential but far too soon for them. Barry Ferguson and Mo Ross have both taken baby steps on the way to a managerial career. ...

Implying that Ferguson sees anything to do with Rangers as an end in itself.

 

:facepalm:

I would assume the assistant was not left by Gio, but wanted to remain there. Grown up men and all that. ?

Thanks should have worded it his assistant chose to stay there,which is what I really meant.?

From the moment Gerrard arrived at Rangers there was incessant reference to his ultimate destination at Liverpool, the inference being that Rangers could only ever be a stepping stone on his march to a far greater destiny. It always irritated me that this universal truth was meekly accepted by every Rangers fan, not because aspiring to manage Liverpool was a bad thing in itself but because our opinion of our own club had apparently slipped so much that we were happy to be used as a tool in the pursuit of someone else's ambitions. Maybe now the fans of Aston Villa can take their turn to be the road under Gerrard's feet.

I honestly dont think it would be any different with any other manager these days, even Scottish ones. If a EPL outfit come their way they will take the job. While I dont like it either, we are just a big fish in a small pond and the EPL is a much richer and better league. That's just the way things are with money nowadays. In Souness' era we signed several England internationals for small money. They would cost £50m a pop today, its not a level playing field now. We are now paying £7m for a Liverpool reserve who hadn't played a competitive game for them.

I was just implying that he was a Rangers man. He may turn out to be a good manager or not. Can you explain this antipathy that some fans seem to have to him?
