Rangers have potentially taken a huge step in appointing Pedro Caixinha's successor at Ibrox after approaching former England manager Steve McClaren.

McClaren, who was axed by Derby (again) back in March, is currently over in Israel working as an advisor to Jordi Cruyff at Maccabi Tel Aviv.

But the lure of returning to Britain could prove to be too strong for the 56-year-old who is now priced at 3/1 - having been hovering out at 18/1 - behind frontrunner Derek McInnes, who reportedly remains the club's number one target, although the Aberdeen boss has not yet been approached.

McClaren has previously managed a number of clubs hin his homeland, while he's also had spells in Holland, Germany, and now Israel, but has not held a full-time managerial position in over seven months.

Rangers have been on the search for a new boss since axing Caixinha in October, with the likes of McInnes, David Moyes, Michel Preud'homme, interim Graeme Murty, and Alan Pardew all featuring in the betting the for the Scottish vacancy.

Caretaker Murty has a 100% winning record so far after leading the Gers to victories over Hearts and Partick Thistle, with the club 4th in the SPL behind league leaders Celtic, Aberdeen and Hibernian.

Meanwhile, over the weekend rivals Celtic, managed by Brendan Rodgers, set a new domestic record of 63 games unbeaten.
