Report: McCall eyes long-term Rangers contract if promoted, assistant manager already targeted

Rangers Gates

Stuart McCall is reportedly looking for a three-year deal at Rangers if he gets the team promoted.

According to STV, Rangers will appoint Stuart McCall as their new manager until the end of the season - but the former Motherwell boss wants a long-term contract if he gets the club promoted to the top flight.

McCall, 50, is believed to have agreed a contract with Rangers to return to Ibrox as the club's new manager after a period of uncertainty in the dugout.

The former midfielder played over 250 games for Rangers during the 1990's, becoming a mainstay of Walter Smith's record-breaking side.

Now, 17 years after leaving Rangers, McCall is set to come back as the club's new manager, filling the void left by Ally McCoist in December, with caretaker Kenny McDowall's notice period finally coming to an end if McCall does indeed arrive this week.

Yet whilst McCall has reportedly agreed a deal until the end of the season, STV believe that McCall will demand a three-year contract at Ibrox this summer - if he get the team promoted to the Scottish Premiership, which would involve turning round a Rangers side who are in dire form right now.

STV also report that McCall already has his assistant manager in the pipeline, with his former Motherwell aide Kenny Black set to follow him to Ibrox.

Black, 51, played for Rangers in the 1980's, and is expected to return to the club as McCall's assistant, with McDowall leaving the club altogether.
