Man United Coach Tipped to Take Over as Manager of Top Scottish Club

Michael Carrick, the Manchester United coach, has also emerged as a frontrunner to succeed Steven Gerrard at Rangers.

Michael Carrick has been tipped as the Rangers' successor to Steven Gerrard. Rangers' manager position is presently vacant following Gerrard's recent appointment as Aston Villa manager.

According to Metro UK, Gerrard's departure from Glasgow was highlighted by the departure of the majority of his backroom team, forcing Rangers to rethink their succession plans.The publication reports that the Scottish giants are expected to follow suit and choose an up-and-coming player-turned-coach as their new manager.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is regarded as the current favorite to succeed Chelsea veterans John Terry and Frank Lampard.

Carrick, on the other hand, looks to have garnered the most support, with former Rangers midfielder Adam putting him forward for the post.

Adam hailed Carrick as an "excellent coach" who has had the benefit of working with a large club's coaching staff.

I'll put Michael Carrick's name in the hat. He previously worked at Manchester United, a large club with an excellent coach. Adam was interviewed for the BBC's Sportsound podcast.

In addition, Adam is rumored to be interested in joining Carrick's backroom staff if the former Manchester United midfielder is appointed.

Carrick was initially named to United's backroom staff following José Mourinho's appointment as manager.

He retained the role upon the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who chose to keep him.
