Glasgow Rangers fans have identified one manager they'd like to see at Ibrox.
The 54-year-old is currently out of the job after being sacked by Stoke City on Saturday following a shock FA Cup exit at Coventry City.
Rangers have Graeme Murty as manager until the end of the season after failing to hire a long-term successor to Pedro Caixinha, who was sacked in October.
But the Ibrox club's hierarchy will already be scouting men to take over from Murty in the summer and some fans of the Glasgow giants wouldn't be against the idea of Hughes.
Mark Hughes sacked. He was looking rather staunch in his interview earlier this week. I’d have him at Rangers! pic.twitter.com/EmlWsux6Fa— Wee Georgie Boy (@weegeg12345) January 6, 2018
Mark Hughes is just dying for the Rangers job. Sign him up then install him next year.— Andrew McColl (@andrewmccoll88) January 6, 2018

Unpopular opinion amongst my fellow Rangers fans but I would take Mark Hughes at Rangers for the start of 2018/19 season.— JamesPostedDat (@jamesposteddat) January 6, 2018
Mark Hughes should b our top target— james (@gers2002) January 6, 2018
If anyone even starts with "get Mark Hughes in as manager" I will slit my wrists— LH72 (@LH1872) January 6, 2018
The Welshman has managed five different Premier League clubs and Rangers could probably do a lot worse than Hughes it has to be said.
If the Gers are to stop Celtic from winning 10 Premiership titles in a row then perhaps someone with an abundance of Premier League experience is a positive, given how former Swansea City and Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has done in Scotland.
That being said, there is a chance that Rangers won't hire anyone if Murty has a successful second half to the season.
