Derek McInnes remains the comfortable odds-on favourite for the Glasgow Rangers job, but a new contender for the Ibrox post has emerged.

According to Sky Bet, Derek McInnes remains the comfortable favourite to become Rangers' next manager - but there is a new second favourite for the post at Ibrox.

Aberdeen boss McInnes appears to almost be nailed on for the job, in the betting market at least, but there has been a quick shift in the market over the last 24 hours with Feyenoord head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst becoming the second favourite.

The Dutchman was listed at 16/1 yesterday, but Sky Bet now list the 42-year-old at 11/4, well clear of current caretaker Graeme Murty (14/1) and the fourth favourite Sam Allardyce, who is listed at 18/1.

Though van Bronckhorst's side have made a disappointing start to the season in the Eredivisie - they currently sit sixth in the table 12 points behind current leaders PSV Eindhoven - he has enjoyed success during his time with the club.

He guided Feyenoord to the title last season and the KNVB Cup the year before, so he has got a good record for someone who has only been a senior manager for the last two years. 

And with the retired midfielder knowing full well what the expectation at Ibrox would be like - he spent three years with the Gers as a player - he may be a great appointment if the odds are a sign that something may be in the offing, though McInnes remains the overwhelming favourite.
