Rangers' new boss will face a number of big decisions on the player front with TEN stars heading out of contract in the summer.
Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos have been the two most talked about with the high profile duo yet to come to an agreement over fresh terms. They plus eight other team-mates could start negotiating with other clubs come January if they see a future away from Glasgow.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst was axed at the start of the week with poor results and performances ultimately proving to be his Ibrox downfall. His exit came just days after his one year anniversary after replacing Steven Gerrard - who moved to the English Premier League with Aston Villa. Michael Beale - who was No2 under the former Liverpool and England hero - is the odds-on favourite for a sensational Ibrox return with latest reports claiming QPR 'expect' the 42-year-old to depart the English Championship club for an emotional return north of the border.

The ex-Light Blues coach was a major part of the team that captured title No. 55 and ended Celtic's ten-in-a-row bid. He virtually worked with all bar a few of the players who are heading out of contract.
If he is to be the man at the helm, then a lot of work behind the scenes will need to be done to either negotiate new deals or let players move on. A big turnover could be set for Rangers who trail Ange Postecoglou and Celtic by nine points in the race for the Premiership crown after 15 games.
