Former Newcastle boss Steve McClaren has emerged as a contender to replace Pedro Caixinha as Rangers boss.
It's believed Ibrox director of football Mark Allen reckons the 56-year-old is the best man to take the club forward, according to the Times .
McClaren has been working with Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv as a coaching consultant since August and was reportedly interested in becoming Hearts boss after Ian Cathro was dismissed.
His greatest success at club level was leading Middlesbrough to League Cup glory in 2004 as well as an improbable UEFA Cup Final appearance in 2006. He also led Dutch side Twente to the Eredivisie title in 2010
Derek McInnes remains the bookies' favourite and Record Sport exclusively revealed that the Rangers board would only have to stump up £800k to land the Aberdeen boss and his assistant Tony Docherty.
