Stuart McCall only fifth favourite for Rangers job after Motherwell humiliation

Rangers FC Stands

The bookmakers are growing less convinced that Stuart McCall will remain in charge of Rangers.

Rangers boss Stuart McCall could suffer from Sunday's 3-0 loss to Motherwell as bookmakers only have him priced as the fifth favourite to be manager next season.

After a 3-1 home defeat in the first leg of the play-off final, Rangers were beaten 3-0 at Fir Park on Sunday, handing them a 6-1 aggregate humiliation at the hands of Motherwell, who now stay in the Premiership whilst Rangers are consigned to another season in the Championship.

Now, Dave King has big decisions to make, with manager McCall under pressure having failed to deliver promotion despite only taking charge in March.

The 50-year-old's contract runs out later this summer, and Rangers may now look to move in a different direction after the disaster against Motherwell.

The bookmakers are busy pricing up odds for the favourites to be in charge for the start of next season, and as seen on Oddschecker, they currently make former Brentford boss Mark Warburton the frontrunner to take the reins at Ibrox this summer.

Also in the running are Warburton's former assistant David Weir, who of course used to play for Rangers, as well as Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes, who guided the Dons to a second place finish in the Premiership this season.

McCall is the fifth favourite for the job, with ex-Rangers manager Alex McLeish ahead of him as he prepares to leave Belgian side Genk this summer.

It now looks like McCall's chances of landing the role on a more permanent basis are diminishing after the thrashing by Motherwell - and Rangers may have no shortage of applicants in the coming weeks.
