Kevin Muscat is an outside bet to return to Rangers as manager, in what would be a shock move for both parties.

Muscat, who played 22 games for the Gers in the treble winning 2002/03 season, has been linked with a surprise switch back to Ibrox, although he's currently out at 20/1 (Bet Victor), behind the likes of frontrunner Alex McLeish (his former boss), caretaker Graeme Murty, Aberdeen boss Derek Mcinnes and the out-of-work Frank de Boer.

Muscat has been Down Under managing Melbourne Victory since October 2013. The former defender made an instant impact, leading his troops to an A-League premiership-championship double in his first full season in charge.

Muscat's side are currently in 2nd spot, although nine points adrift of runaway leaders Sydney who are unbeaten in 19 matches this term. However, there is a sizeable gap of seven points between Victory and 3rd place Brisbane roar.

But, could the former Socceroos international be on the verge of switching sunny Australia for Scotland?

Rangers have been linked with a whole host of gaffers since Mark Warburton's sudden departure a week ago. Other managers may be considered more obvious choices but Rangers chiefs are believed to be impressed with Muscat's record in Australia.

Meanwhile, former Rangers gaffer Frank de Boer has been cut to 5/2 with Coral.
