According to The Express, Rangers are keen on Huddersfield Town's Stuart Webber as they search for a Director of Football, but The Huddersfield Examiner claim that the Championship club are 'relaxed' about the situation.

The Gers are looking for a new manager after confirming that Mark Warburton had resigned last week, but it seems that more changes are coming at Ibrox too.

Managing Director Stewart Robertson told the club's official website on Tuesday that the Gers are also looking to a new Director of Football as they pursue a modern organisational structure.

Many clubs around Europe have been using such a model for some time now, whereby the manager focuses largely on coaching the players, and the Director of Football oversees recruitment.

Now, The Express report that one candidate Rangers are considering is Huddersfield Town's Stuart Webber, who has been working as the Terriers' Head of Football Operations.

Huddersfield are flying high in the Championship right now, as they sit in third place after a stunning season, and whilst manager David Wagner will take most of the credit, Webber has also received plaudits and admirers.

Webber has placed a strong emphasis on youth development at Huddersfield, whilst the signings of players like Michael Hefele, Christopher Schindler, Aaron Mooy, Elias Kachunga and Jack Payne have helped the club challenge for promotion.

It's therefore no surprise that Webber, one of the key men behind Huddersfield's success, is attracting interest, though Rangers may face a struggle landing him.

The Huddersfield Examiner report that the Terriers aren't panicking about Webber's future right now, as they're seemingly confident that he will stay at the John Smith's Stadium as the club challenge for promotion.
