Days after leading Australia to their 4th consecutive World Cup, manager Ange Postecoglou has stepped down in his role in charge of the Socceroos.
The 52-year-old got linked with the Rangers job earlier this month, with speculations ride that he would call it quit with Australia in order to return to club football.
Qualifying a country for the World Cup and managing them at the grand showpiece is every manager’s dream, but it appears Postecoglou gave that up in order not to miss out on the Rangers job.
The Light Blues are yet to replace Pedro Caixinha a month after firing him, and with their top target Derek McInnes seemingly out of reach, Postecoglou could be a great plan B.
He has proven successful at international level, leading Australia to the AFC Asian Cup in 2015, having earlier helped the Under-17’s and Under-20’s to 7 trophies.
Postecoglou’s managerial career at club level also shows that he has what it takes to guide Rangers to the top of Scottish football.
He helped South Melbourne and Brisbane Roar to several titles and trophies before working with his country’s national teams, and could be the one to change the fortunes of the Light Blues given his exciting style of football.
