Little over a day since Pedro Caixinha was sacked by Rangers, and there already appears to an overwhelming favourite in the hunt for the Portuguese's successor, according to bookmaker SkyBet.

Aberdeen boss and former Rangers player Derek McInnes has moved in from 5/1 second favourite to 1/2, amid speculation from The Scottish Sun which suggested that the 46-year-old had quickly been identified as the Gers' top target after the tremendous job that he has done with their Scottish Premiership rivals.

The man he replaced at the top of the market, Graeme Murty has moved from 5/2 to 10/1 fourth favourite, but perhaps his odds will shorten once again if he guides the Light Blues to an impressive win in his first game in caretaker charge, which comes against Hearts this weekend. 

Meanwhile, there is minimal movement in the market for former Gers boss Alex McLeish, as he moves in from 11/2 to 5/1, which now makes him the second favourite with SkyBet.
