McCoist, who is the club’s record goalscorer, spent three-and-a-half seasons as manager before being placed on gardening leave in December 2014.

Despite this he would still be open to a return to the team he has supported all his life.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live: “You never know. Listen, it’s the club I’ve loved since I was a very small boy.

“I was very fortunate enough to play at the club for 15 years and it was the greatest privilege of my life to manage the club.

“So I’m not going to sit here and say no – because it’s a football club I’ve always loved and will continue to love.

“But what we have to think about is the football club moving forward and whatever is best for the club, that must happen.”

McCoist also believes that the best course of action would be to recruit a pair of former Rangers managers to take charge of the first-team until a new boss is hired.

“I know Graeme Murty’s taking over until they appoint a manager.

“But listen, why not go the whole hog? Why not go and get somebody like Walter Smith and Graeme Souness to take over just now until they decide what they want to do.”
