Rangers target McClaren

Ex-England manager Steve McClaren has emerged as a surprise candidate for the vacant job at Rangers. McClaren is working as a coaching consultant with Maccabi Tel Aviv after being linked with the head coaching role at Hearts earlier this season. Ibrox chiefs plan to hold talks with the 56-year-old later this week. (Various)

McInnes urged to reject Rangers

Gary Mackay-Steven has urged Derek McInnes to remain at Aberdeen and reject any offer to become the next manager of Rangers. The winger praised his manager’s qualities and disagreed with the notion that he’d taken the Pittodrie club as far as he could. McInnes remains Rangers No.1 choice to succeed Pedro Caixinha.

Only Celtic can stop Celtic

Celtic’s unbeaten domestic run will eventually come to an end. When it does, the likelihood is that they will have contributed to their own downfall, because when they are playing at their best there is not a team in the land who can better them. It is a fact acknowledged by the players, the manager, the fans and their rivals, with St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright admitting that there is not one member of his team who could force their way into the Celtic starting line-up.

Levein’s Tynecastle warning

Hearts left Murrayfield for the final time yesterday with a warning from Craig Levein ringing in their ears: it won’t matter where they are playing if they perform as badly as during the defeat by Kilmarnock. Levein’s side fell to a winner from teenage substitute Adam Frizzell. Esmael Goncalves had struck ten minutes earlier to cancel out Kris Boyd’s first-half opener. It means Hearts and their fans are viewing with some relief their return to Tynecastle on Sunday 19 November. (The Scotsman)

Scotland could face Argentina

Scotland could be set to travel to Africa for a friendly match with Argentina next year. Morocco, hopeful of hosting the World Cup in 2026, are planning to host a mini-tournament to show their suitability. Scottish FA chiefs have already held talks about the prospect of the national team participating in the three-team tournament in March 2018. (Daily Mail)

Foderingham backs Murty

Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham says he’d be delighted if Graeme Murty was made the club’s new manager on a permanent basis. The Ibrox side made it six points from six under the caretaker’s charge with a 3-0 victory over Partick Thistle at the weekend. Foderingham hailed the “fantastic job” Murty is doing and said the first-team is really enjoying their time under him. (Daily Record)
