Paddy Power suspend betting on Alex McLeish to Rangers

After 11 years away Big ‘Eck looks set for a return to Ibrox…


Paddy Power have suspended betting on Alex McLeish to be the next Rangers manager – after a series of bets.

The return of Big ‘Eck was backed in from 6/1 yesterday morning, before the we had to pull the plug on the market.

Rangers have been on the look-out for a new boss since the sacking Pedro Caixinha over a month ago and now look set to take the unimaginative step of bringing back McLeish for a second spell.

Asked about a comeback for McLeish spokesman Paddy Power said: “We’ve seen big cash for Alex McLeish to return to Rangers – which is the opposite of what he’ll see should he take the job.

“After weeks of stagnation, it’d be pretty underwhelming for the Gers to appoint someone who was already out of work, but that would at least be in keeping with the way the club is run.”
