Alex McLeish is in line to return to Rangers as the Scottish side weigh up their next managerial appointment.

Bookies Ladbrokes say they have suspended betting on McLeish landing the role as manager at Ibrox.

McLeish managed Rangers in the late 90s and early 2000s, leading them to win two league titles.

 

Rangers have been without a manager for the past month, having fired Pedro Caixinha in late October.

McLeish had thrown his hat into the ring as a potential replacement for Mark Warburton earlier in the year.

Rangers opted to try something different with Caixinha, which did not work out, and a steady pair of hands who knows the club like McLeish may just be exactly what they need.

Rangers have lost their last two games and caretaker boss Graeme Murty is struggling in charge.

Getting McLeish in even just until the end of the season would be a sensible move.
