Birmingham City boss John Eustace has emerged as an early candidate to take charge at Rangers.
Current Rangers boss Michael Beale is apparently under pressure following the club’s Champions League exit and recent Old Firm defeat.
The former QPR boss has been in the job less than a year but already it looked like he could be axed, and potentially replaced with another former QPR figure in Eustace.
He guided Birmingham City to a comfortable 17th place finish last time round, overseeing a hugely positive start to this campaign as well.
And upon his Blues appointment ahead of last season, Eustace penned a three-year contract, keeping him the club until 2025.
New contract for Eustace?
Everything is certainly looking up for Birmingham City and Eustace is a huge part of their early success this season.
There’s obviously been a lot of change off the pitch and a lot of investment in new signings. But Eustace has tied it all together, proving his worth last season when he guided the club to safety without the help of an amazing set of players.
So for Birmingham City, handing Eustace a new contract could be a vert smart move. At the end of this season he’ll be coming into the final year of his contract and if he continues to do well, he’ll continue to attract interest.
It’s seemingly already started with Rangers apparently keen, though how true that is remains to be seen.
But for Birmingham City, everything is moving in the right direction and Eustace remains an integral figure to everything that is good about the club right now, so a new deal looks like a no-brainer for Blues.
