“ With all the humility, whatever comes my way, I’m not saying it should come my way, but whatever comes my way, I’m going to evaluate, ” Henry said. the Robbie Fowler Podcast
‘I’m sure they are going to work on what they are going to work on. I don’t know what’s going on there, this is a club that I have a lot of respect for. I’m sure I’m a lot of people in the world, but I don’t know about anything.
All I know is that I want to coach and be back. You look at what Stevie G (Steven Gerrard) did, and it’s just ridiculous. What a man. I knew he was going to give birth. ‘

Henry went on to explain how much he values the time Rangers have given Gerrard to have him put together a team before making an attack to wrestle away Celtic’s dominance in the SPL.
Speaking from experience, Henry knows that little patience is now offered to the men on the sidelines and results are expected immediately.
On his first foray into management, at his former club Monaco, Henry was fired after just four months of leadership. He left with a record of just four wins, five draws and 11 defeats, from 20 games in the lead.
Henry added, “What I like about Rangers is that they gave him time to build a team, get the players he wanted and get them to play.

‘I’m available and I don’t know what’s coming my way, but I definitely want to coach.’
