Frank McAvennie has suggested Sean Dyche would be an “ideal fit” at Rangers if they sack Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Celtic striker doesn’t know if Dyche would choose to a move to Scotland and suggested he may have to change his playing style if he does.
Gers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst has come under pressure for his side’s poor performances in Europe and in the leauge.
The Light Blues are bottom of their Champions League group with zero points from five games a goal difference of -18.
Despite a 4-1 victory over Aberdeen on Saturday (29 October), the Bears are still four points behind Glasgow rivals Celtic after settling for a draw against Livingston last weekend.
Speaking to Sky Sports (24 October), Dyche has been impressing Rangers fans with comments about his playing style.

When asked if the former Burnley boss could be a good alternative to Van Bronckhorst, McAvennie told Football Insider: “It is not going to be pretty with Sean, you get what you see.
“He did what he did at Burnley and that is because he made it hard for teams to score against them. Up in Scotland it is different, he could not play that way in Scotland.
“He would not have lost all of those goals in Europe that is for sure. I do not know if he can change his style but he is a good manager. He is a man manager, he knows the game. But it is hard to talk about people when they are still in a job.
“I think he could come to Scotland because it is a big club. I think he would be a perfect fit.”
As quoted by the Herald (21 October), Van Bronckhorst said he is aware that sackings are part and parcel of working as a football manager.
But, the Dutch boss is hopeful that he can avoid that fate for as long as possible.
