It has been reported that the ex-Leeds United assistant manager has had his name put forward to Rangers director of football Mark Allen.

Meanwhile, former Celtic attacking midfielder Kris Commons has praised Rangers caretaker-manager Graeme Murty and has given his take on Pedro Caixinha.

“Rangers are a team transformed by Graeme Murty,” Commons wrote in The Daily Mail. “They have won two matches against Hearts and Partick Thistle, scoring six goals and conceding just one. “

“Whether or not Murty remains in charge for the Hamilton match, Rangers winning three in a row after the departure of their manager would further underline the fact that Pedro was the wrong man for the job,” added Commons.
