An announcement about Mick Beale becoming Rangers boss is expected as early as Monday.

After being granted permission to hold talks, the 42 year old arrived at the club's training ground to complete his move from Queens Park Rangers.

It is believed that Damian Matthew, Harry Watling, and Neil Banfield will be joined by their former coach, John Beale.

While the club searches for a replacement, Paul Hall will train at Queens.

When Rangers won their 55th top-flight title in 2021, they had a part in it.

He turned down an approach from Wolves last month, citing "integrity and loyalty" as the reason, less than six weeks after he became manager at Queens Park Rangers.

Beale and his staff were in contract extension talks with Rangers before they became interested.

Following his move from Glasgow last November, Beale's family struggled to find a place to live.

One day, when initial talks about his appointment at Queens Park took place, it is believed the Championship club were aware that he wanted to return to Ibrox.

Rangers players will return to training later on Monday, after the World Cup break, where they will be expected to meet Beale before beginning their return to league action.

The Gers are nine points behind Celtic in the league and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

QPR manager Michael Beale
Former Rangers and QPR boss Mark Warburton discusses if Mick Beale would be the right choice for the Ibrox side

Mark Warburton is a former boss of Rangers.

It's a great opportunity and Michael will be aware of that. He'll recognise the club, he'll have good relationships within the club, so should it come along, it will be a fantastic opportunity and I'm sure very hard to turn down.

The chance to manage a club of Rangers' stature is always a wonderful one. He will have a hard decision to make if it goes ahead.

"I think he'll understand that the opportunity is too early in his career," he said. Mick is a very smart guy who will understand the implications of that and the challenge that he will face, but at the same time I think he knows that such opportunities don't come along very often to manage a club the size of Rangers, so if it all goes ahead, I think

Alex Rae discusses potential candidates to replace Giovanni van Bronckhorst at Rangers

"Mick would be honest to say that a top-six or top-eight club is not going to come along immediately and, as such, the lure of European football, as you saw last year with what can be achieved and the backing they receive from the supporters, that is something that

You have to make a decision. It's a difficult decision, he's in a good place right now, he's had a good start to the season with Queens Park Rangers. I think he will be honest with himself and know that this type of opportunity doesn't come around often.

It's a huge club and a chance of European football. I'm sure Micky would be interested to know if he could do that job himself after he was there with Steven and he did a great job.

'Beale fits Rangers and knows the club'

Kenny Miller is a former Rangers player.

There are a lot of names that come to mind. I think Mick Beale would be at the top of the list. Over the last month, his name has been bandied about.

I think he is a good fit for the club. I think he'd be right at the top of the list because he's started his own journey as a manager and he would have no surprises when he walks back into the building.

The manager of Livingston thinks that Beale would be a good choice for the Rangers.

"I don't want to speak out of turn because it's not my place to talk about other clubs and other managers but I think Michael would be a great fit for Rangers."

It's up to Michael Beale and the Rangers.

Is that a great fit? I do not know as much as you do.

I am a big fan of British managers. There is a lot to be said for hiring someone with knowledge of the players and knowledge of Scottish football.
