Les Ferdinand was delighted to see pal Jermain Defoe handed the chance to kick off his coaching career at Rangers. But the ex-Premier League star fears his old strike partner will become the latest high-profile black candidate to discover opportunity does not always knock down south.

Defoe has called it quits at Ibrox six months after being promoted to Steven Gerrard ’s backroom team as a player-coach. New manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s arrival spelled the end of that arrangement but Defoe has already clarified it was his decision to leave the coaches office and return full-time to the first-team dressing room as he opted to pile his focus back on to playing duties.And it was a lack of action that ultimately persuaded the former West Ham, Spurs and England poacher it was time to move on.

The 39-year-old insists there’s plenty of life left his old legs yet and is preparing to find a new club.But beyond that it appears Defoe has a straight choice between a return to coaching or a move into punditry having taken his first steps towards a TV career with Sky in recent weeks.Get all the latest Rangers news sent straight to your Inbox every day by signing up to our newsletter.We cover every morsel of information regarding your favourite club in the form of articles, videos and podcasts.The newsletter will arrive every day at 12pm, giving you a round up of the best stories we've covered that in the last 24 hours.To sign up, simply enter your email address into the link here.And if you aren't already, make sure you join the conversation over on our Rangers Facebook group and Record Sport Instagram.Former Hammers team-mate Ferdinand, now QPR director of football told Record Sport: “Jermain has fallen into that TV work really

Ralf Rangnick explains Cristiano Ronaldo sub after Man Utd diva's angry tantrum
Cristiano Ronaldo after the superstar’s angry reaction to being hauled off during Manchester United’s win at Brentford.Ronaldo started up-front for United and played a crucial role in the Mason Greenwood goal that ultimately sealed the three points for Rangnick’s men.The Portuguese attacker chested a lofted ball forward into the path of Bruno Fernandes who sprinted through on goal before playing a squared pass to Greenwood to tap-in.But nine minutes after that goal, which was United’s second of the game, Rangnick opted to replace Ronaldo with centre-back Harry Maguire.Ronaldo was left furious by that decision, slowly walking off the pitch before throwing a coat that had been handed to him by a kit-man to the ground.The 36-year-old continued to show his frustration while sitting on one of the steps in the dugout at the Brentford Community Stadium.He could be seen gesturing and asking why it was him who had been taken off before shaking his head.While he defended Ronaldo’s angry reaction, Rangnick insisted after the win that it had been the right call.Was Ralf Rangnick's decision to substitute Cristiano Ronaldo the right one? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section...He highlighted the fact that Ronaldo had only recently returned from injury, as well as the events of United’s last game in which they threw away a two-goal lead at Aston Villa, for his reasons.“That is normal - a striker wants to score,” Rangnick told BT Sport when asked about Ronaldo’s reaction to being taken off.“But he has come back from a little injury and it was important to remember we have got another game coming up.Want to be on the ball with all of the latest football news?Well then sign up for the brilliant Daily Star football email
