It has been reported that Rangers’ director of football, Mark Allen, believes that the former Newcastle United boss is the right man for the Ibrox job.
The 56-year-old former England national team head coach is working as a coaching consultant at Maccabi Tel Aviv at the moment.
According to The Times, Rangers would not be required to pay the Israeli club any compensation if they recruit McClaren.
McClaren is a very good coach, who has worked as a manager at Derby County, Newcastle and Nottingham Forest among other clubs.
The Englishman is not the first ex-Newcastle boss linked with the vacant managerial job at Rangers.
According to The Daily Mail, former Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is a contender for the managerial role at Ibrox.
“You can’t turn it down – just as I couldn’t turn it down when the board asked if I would step up,” Murty told The Express when asked if he would be interested in the role on a full-time basis.
“The club’s in good hands with Graeme at the first team helm,” Hill told The Daily Record. “There’s no rush to make an appointment and the calibre of managers currently out of work is staggering.”
