According to a report from The Scottish Sun, Rangers' search for their new manager is being somewhat held up by the fact that the Gers want Pedro Caixinha's successor to work with Graeme Murty and Jonatan Johansson.
Rangers parted company with the Portuguese last month, but there appears to have been little progress regarding finding his permanent replacement and it seems a safe bet to suggest that Murty will oversee a fourth game as caretaker boss when the Gers face Dundee on Friday night.
And it appears that one reason for the lack of progress may be down to the backroom team the Scottish Premiership side want to work with the new manager.
The Scottish Sun reports that a number of candidates have been sounded out about taking over from Caixinha, but the board's preference to keep Murty and Johansson as part of the backroom team is holding the pursuit up.
Murty has done well during his two stints as caretaker, and the number of academy prospects pushing for the first-team surely says a lot about the work he has done during his time as under-20s coach.
Meanwhile, Johansson's most notable accomplishment was surely recommending Alfredo Morelos to the club shortly after his arrival, though he may well also be doing some great work behind the scenes.
However, while Murty and Johansson may be doing some good work and it may be a good move to keep them on when the new manager comes in, the Gers would surely be making a mistake if they let their number one managerial target pass them by because the club are determined to keep Murty and Johansson around.
