Next Rangers Manager Odds: Betting suspended on Philippe Clement taking over at Ibrox

With reports that Philippe Clement appears set to take over the managerial reins at Ibrox, we've suspended betting on him taking over the Scottish giants.

After Michael Beale was relieved of his duties just 10 months into his reign at Ibrox, a whole host of names have been linked with the vacant managerial position at Rangers.

A number of early contenders including Frank Lampard drifted in the betting with Clement now appearing to be the man charged with changing the fortunes of the illustrious club, as he reportedly closes in on inking a long-term deal at Ibrox.

The Belgian enjoyed three successful years in his home country, winning the league in three straight seasons with Genk and Club Brugge, which earned him a move to Monaco. 

In his first half season, he took his new side from outside the European places to Champions League football thanks to a nine-match winning run at the end of the season.

Kevin Muscat was the early favourite having won the J1 League last season with Yokohama F Marinos and despite spending a year with Rangers as a player, he was believed to be a potential candidate to take over from Ange Postecoglou at Celtic in the summer, before the Bhoys eventually brought Brendan Rodgers back to the club.

The former Australia international, who is well-respected at Ibrox, spent five full seasons with Melbourne Victory in his first managerial role, winning the A-League Championship twice. 

He then returned to Europe as manager of Belgian Pro League side Sint-Truiden, but was sacked after just 15 games with a record of two wins, five draws and eight losses.

But after a straight shootout with Clement for the highly sought-after Rangers role, it appears to be Clement who is close to being announced as Beale's permanent successor.
