Report: Mark Warburton and Stuart McCall final two candidates for Rangers job

Mark Warburton and Stuart McCall are the final two candidates for the Rangers managerial job, according to a report.

Mark Warburton could be just 48 hours away from being announced as the new Rangers manager, according to The Scottish Sun.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that the former Brentford boss is one of just two remaining candidates for the job.

Former Motherwell manager Stuart McCall is the other candidate, having been in charge of the Gers since March.

The Scottish Sun claim that a formal announcement will be made by Rangers on Monday after negotiations over the weekend.

Warburton did a remarkable job at Brentford and guided the Bees to a top-six finish in the English Championship in the recently concluded 2014-15 season.

Brentford are not a big club and did not have a great team, but the Englishman got the best out of the players and fared much better than expected.

McCall did a similarly brilliant job at Rangers, leading the Gers to the Scottish Premiership playoff final.

When the former Motherwell boss was handed the Rangers job in mid-March, there were doubts whether the team would be able to finish in the playoffs.

McCall did what he did over the following months with a squad he inherited; he is likely to do much more if he gets to sign his own players.
