Rangers board have made their decision on Philippe Clement”

The Belgian boss faces a tough task as he looks to kickstart the Light Blues season

After the board made its decision, Philippe Clement will try to restart the Rangers’ season.

Less than two weeks have passed since Michael Beale was fired, leaving the Light Blues seven points behind Celtic in the Scottish Premiership title fight following an ineffective summer recruitment spree. Now, when Clement reports to Auchenhowie for training on Monday, he will try to pick up the pieces when he first sees the players.

When the Belgian manager takes his first seat in the manager’s office, he will have a full plate following a drab 10-month tenure under Beale. The intensity will only increase from here on out, so the former manager of Club Brugge and Monaco won’t have much time to get used to life in Glasgow as Brendan Rodgers’ team looks determined to win another league championship.

But what will come first on the schedule? Record Sport examines a few of the pressing concerns that the new Rangers manager is dealing with.

Injury issues were one of Michael Beale’s many issues in the latter stages of his Ibrox career that he was unable to overcome. Steven Davis, the Londoner, and his temporary manager have a worn-out team after injuries to Todd Cantwell, Nicolas Raskin, Rabbi Matondo, Danilo, and Kemar Roofe. Clement is hoping that the team’s injury problems are mostly behind them.

Although Michael Beale spent a lot of money in the summer, the £13 million transfer expenditure hasn’t improved the team from the previous season thus far. While Abdallah Sima and Jack Butland have drawn attention, the others have fallen short of expectations. Now, Clement needs to assemble the strongest team possible. In relation to recruiting.

The hope among Rangers supporters is that Philippe Clement can extract much more from Cyriel Dessers. They’ve already faced off in a close championship match from just two years ago, back when Clement was a member of Club Brugge. Will the Belgian manager be the one to unlock the Dutch striker now that there is a glaring hole at the centre of the front line?

There’s no doubt that the boss will want to add to his current crop of talent, even with the summer’s big payment. However, that might entail selling before hiring new personnel. Might players like Scott Wright, Ben Davies, and Jon McLaughlin be cut to make room in the starting lineup?
