Rangers are looking for their 18th permanent manager as the axe finally fell on Giovanni van Bronckhorst days after his first anniversary at the helm.

The Dutchman had been under mounting pressure before a reprieve appeared in the offing. However, the axe fell on Monday, nine days after the sobering draw with St Mirren which left them nine points adrift of Celtic heading into the World Cup break.

Having led the club to a Europa League Final and Scottish Cup win last season, fans were buoyant over what a full season under the former midfielder could hold despite Ange Postecoglou 's galvanising influence upon a formerly beleaguered Celtic team.

Events started brightly with Champions League qualification over PSV, alongside a strong start to the Scottish Premiership; though the worst ever group stage campaign in tournament history coupled with paltry performances domestically put Van Bronckhorst under real scrutiny before the executive decision to relieve him of his duties.
