Rangers will soon walk away from a deal for Michael Beale if they don’t get an answer on their vacant managerial job, says Alan Nixon.
Gers sacked Giovanni van Bronckhorst on Monday (November 21) after poor form and quickly identified Queens Park Rangers boss Beale as their preferred candidate to replace him.
Some reports suggested that Beale had already told the council that he wants the job, but the deal has yet to progress and the Sun Nixon reporter shared a brief update on his personal Twitter account (November 23, 11:11 a.m.).
When asked by a fan on Twitter if Rangers fans should expect an announcement soon, Nixon replied;
“Think Rangers want an answer or they will move on soon.”
It’s pretty clear that Rangers want Beale as their next manager, but having seen what happened when he was linked with the Wolves job recently, they’ll want it done as soon as possible.
Beale looked set to move to Molineux before changing his mind at the last minute out of loyalty to QPR, and if that were to happen again here it would be a monumental waste of time for Gers.
If he isn’t convinced about the move or isn’t ready to commit to it yet, the club should move on, especially as there isn’t a standout candidate for the role and even Beale has a lot of question marks if he’s the right man. .
He’s only been number one for 21 games and although QPR have been playing well, they’ve barely ripped up any trees and Rangers are badly in need of a quick change of fortune.
Many managers are in the running, so Beale is under pressure to decide quickly or lose his chance to get the job he wants before anyone else.
