Philippe Clement was almost caught in an incident that saw Derek McInnes sent off early in his Rangers career against Hibernian on Saturday 21 October.
BBC Sport Scotland journalist Martin Dowden reported that the away side were attempting to attack when the Belgian player appeared to play a ball that had not gone out of play.
Derek McInnes was recently sent off for a similar incident at Kilmarnock. Clement risked a potential red card for new managers, but luckily nothing came from it.
According to Dowden’s article for the BBC, Philippe Clement has been making an impact on the field. During a match against Hibernian, he played a ball that appeared to have not gone out of play, while Hibernian was trying to advance up the pitch.
This incident is very similar to the one that resulted in Derek McInnes being shown a red card recently. If the ball had been deemed out of play, it would have been a significant moment early on in the match.
During a recent match, Derek McInnes received a red card due to a controversial decision. If the ball had been considered out of play, it would have been a crucial moment in the game.
Clement, the new manager of Rangers, displays immediate passion and determination to turn things around at Ibrox. This is a noticeable change from Beale’s more composed demeanor on the touchline.
Beale’s calm approach sometimes seemed excessive, but Clement has quickly shown his willingness to dive in and fully embrace the responsibilities of being the manager of Rangers.
Clement did not receive a red card, as he did not do anything wrong, but he was close to doing so. Therefore, it is recommended that he does not cross the line, both figuratively and literally.
Rangers had an excellent start to the game, with more energy and a higher press on and off the ball. Beale must be disappointed with the outcome.
