GvB coach to be given Rangers lifeline by Beale as images emerge on Thursday – report

Rangers goalkeeping coach Colin Stewart is set to be given a chance to prove himself by Michael Beale, according to the Daily Record.

After Giovanni van Bronckhorst was sacked by the Light Blues, many of his support staff opted to leave alongside him with new boss Beale bringing his own quota of key staff members with him from Queens Park Rangers.

But the former Ibrox assistant manager appears ready to put his trust in Stewart and allow him to continue his good work with the goalkeeping department at Auchenhowie.


Images were released of the Bears in training on Thursday (1 December) with Beale and Stewart pictured standing side by side in discussion as the hard work went on in front of them.

Allan McGregor and Jon McLaughlin have been the two goalkeepers used so far this season with Robby McCrorie as the emergency backup as van Bronckhorst could not decide on a permanent number one.

Last chance

If there was one position where Rangers look in desperate need of a refresh it is between the sticks but Stewart has not had a great deal of youth to work with for a prolonged period.

McGregor and McLaughlin are both closer to the end of their respective careers than the start and McCrorie is horribly inexperienced for his age having been snubbed by van Bronckhorst and Steven Gerrard before him.


If the money is on the table in the January transfer window, then the Light Blues could do with a new man to hold down the fort in goal first and foremost before targeting other outfield areas.

Stewart has done what he can with the current trio but if improvements don’t come soon then he could easily find himself behind van Bronckhorst in the Job Centre queue.

Thankfully for him, Beale likes to give people chances to prove themselves so now he just has to take it with both hands and never let go.
