Giovanni van Bronckhorst is the latest big name to walk away from the Sevco managers job.
Last week the odds on the Dutchman taking charge at Ibrox came tumbling down as another welcome distraction to Sevco fans from the grim reality of their ailing club.
There was never any realistic chance of van Bronckhorst quitting the Dutch champions for the Ibrox basket case who are about to start their fifth week with caretaker Graham Murty in charge.
Bringing in a name heavily associated with the tax cheating days of Dick Advocaat would have made fourth place in the Premiership feel a little more bearable but yesterday van Bronckhorst killed that notion stone dead.
“I obviously had a great time in Scotland with Rangers, I think one of the best times I had abroad but at the moment, for me, all that counts is Feyenoord,” he told Sky Sports as he looked ahead to facing Manchester City in the Champions League.
Over the weekend it was revealed that Sevco were unable to meet Chris Coleman’s salary demands of £750,000 p.a.
Since sacking Caixinha Sevco have said nothing in public beyond a brief statement that they would review applications.
Having gone through Mark Warburton and Caixinha in quick succession there is a distinct lack of credible candidates for the managers job.
With directors, a chief scout, chief executive and chairman all operating in different directions it seems that it is more than just the chronic finances that are holding the company back.
