Rangers are busy attempting to appoint a new manager, but they will also have a decision to make on the future of one of their summer signings in the coming weeks.

The Gers are still searching for Pedro Caixinha's replacement, after Aberdeen rejected their bid for manager Derek McInnes on Tuesday – but the Gers will continue their pursuit of the 46-year-old.

If McInnes – or anybody else – is appointed this month, then they will be faced with some immediate decisions regarding the January transfer window, and one player's future will need to be resolved.

A general view of Ibrox Stadium is seen ahead of the EURO 2016 Qualifier match between Scotland and Georgia at Ibrox Stadium on October 11, 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Winger Aaron Nemane was brought in from Manchester City over the summer, though rather than join Pedro Caixinha's first team, he headed into the development squad at Ibrox.

The 20-year-old has played six first team games for Rangers this season though, after signing a loan deal until January, but with the new year approaching, the Gers must make a decision on Nemane's future.

His contract expires with Manchester City at the end of the season, and Rangers can be in a position to take advantage of that by signing him in a cut-price deal in January.

Director of Football Mark Allen - who worked with Nemane at Manchester City - may be keen to keep Nemane at Ibrox, but with a new manager potentially coming in, his input will be vital to any decision on his future.

With such limited playing time and only four weeks until Nemane's deal ends, Rangers face having to make a swift decision on whether to extend his loan move or send him back to City after making little impact so far.
