EXCLUSIVE: Michael Beale on the brink as Rangers line up Graham Potter and Chris Wilder
Michael Beale is on the brink of losing his job at Rangers and the club are already looking at candidates to replace him, FootballTransfers can reveal.
We are informed that the situation involving Beale is at fever pitch, with the board deeming the recent defeats to Celtic and PSV Eindhoven as ‘unacceptable.’
The club are looking at Graham Potter, whose last job was at Chelsea, and Chris Wilder, who departed Watford in May.
It is believed that these names make up two of the four possible replacements the side are looking at, though the club feel that Potter might be financially out of reach.
TALKS: Rangers could face competition for Beale replacement
There is real concern among club personnel about the tactics set out by Beale while the club’s upcoming game in the Scottish Premiership against St. Johnstone is considered a must-win for the coach.
Beale paying the price for poor recruitment
We are told that the squad is unsettled, while Scott Wright’s exit from the club was blocked.
Beale has had a large say in recruitment over the summer but the board are unsatisfied with the direction in which the club are directing, we have been told.
The club have not replaced Ross Wilson, who left for Nottingham Forest as a sporting director, and so it’s been Beale and chief scout John Park who have been leading that department.
The summer saw the club spend around £13million, signing the likes of Danilo, Cyriel Dessers, Jack Butland, Dujon Sterling, Kieran Dowell, Abdallah Sima, Jose Cifuentes, Leon Balogun and Sam Lammers.
A 1-0 defeat at Ibrox against their inner-city rivals means the Gers are four points off the top of the table after four games with just two wins.
They were also knocked out of the Champions League in the preliminary stages via an aggregate 7-3 humiliation to PSV last week.

It comes after the Daily Record’s story which stated that Rangers have started a major overhaul of their scouting and player recruitment departments.
The club said that the operation had nothing to do with recent results and that it was a way to strengthen the business, with more focus on data and analysis.
