Rangers have made Queens Park Rangers boss Michael Beale their top target to become the new permanent manager at Ibrox, sources have confirmed to 90min.
Beale has a huge reputation in the game and has impressed as manager of QPR since taking charge earlier this summer, after leaving Aston Villa where he was assistant to Steven Gerrard.
The 42-year-old has already been targeted this year and is turning down the chance to take over at Wolves. He agreed terms to move to Molineux, before opting to remain loyal to QPR.
Now Beale has another big decision to make as Rangers prepare a strategy. Sources have confirmed to 90min that he is the first choice to succeed Giovani van Bronckhorst, who was sacked by the club earlier this week.
Beale is no stranger to Rangers, having spent three years at Ibrox as Gerrard’s assistant before joining him at Villa. Now a manager in his own right, it is believed the Glasgow giants believe he is the right man to step into the breach.
90min understands Rangers are hopeful they can complete a deal to bring Beale back north.
