Former Porto and Olympiakos manager Vitor Pereira is likely to apply for the Rangers job if Giovanni van Bronckhorst leaves his post, according to reports in the Scottish media.
The Portuguese coach has recently left Brazilian side Corinthians and he is expected to return to Europe for his next position in management.
Pereira won two league titles during his time at Porto, while he has also lifted trophies in Greece and China. Before Frank Lampard was appointed at Everton, he was a leading candidate to succeed Rafa Benitez as manager but the club decided against hiring him after protests from fans that he wasn’t a big enough name.
The last time Rangers recruited someone from Portugal, it didn’t end well, with Pedro Caixinha lasting just 229 days in charge, but you’d have to say that Pereira has a much better CV.
Of course, everything depends on what happens with van Bronckhorst who, as things stand, is still the manager of the Light Blues.
