Former Gers player Billy Davies and Graeme Murty, who managed the team on an interim basis prior to Caixinha’s arrival, are both 5/1 to take the reins.

Dougie Freedman and Garry Monk are at 6/1 and 7/1 respectively while Martin Jol, former boss of Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham, is at 10/1.

Alex McLeish is also at 10/1 for a return to Ibrox while former Hamilton and Norwich boss Alex Neil is at odds of 12/1 alongside Alan Pardew.
