Leeds United boss is claimed to be wanted by Rangers.
Leeds United manager Garry Monk
Highly rated manager Garry Monk is reported by The Mail to be a target for Rangers as they seek to fill their vacancy following Mark Warburton's departure.
Luring Monk will be a long shot, with the Leeds boss riding a wave of optimism at Elland Road after leading them into the play-off race.
Yet the links should be a warning to Leeds, a shot across the bows, with Monk's contract set to expire at the end of the season.
Massimo Cellino only chose to hand the manager a one-year deal when he appointed him in the summer, hoping it would be a low risk strategy, but if they cannot renew his contract then it could backfire.
Monk has performed above expectations at Leeds and it is easy to see why a club like Rangers would want him to transform their prospects.
As long as Leeds leave his contract unresolved, they risk losing him - and with no compensation.
This time it is Rangers coming calling, and Monk might not view it as a job he wants, but next time it could be a top Premier League side chasing him.
Without Monk's future secured, Leeds won't have a leg to stand on, and will be back to square one - a scenario they cannot afford. It's time for the Whites to get moving and give him the contract he deserves.
