Former Rangers boss considered for shock return to Ibrox - report

By John Reid

Stuart McCall has been lined-up for a return to the Rangers hot seat if Derek McInnes cannot be tempted away from Aberdeen.

According to The Scotsman, McCall is ‘the back-up option’ if Rangers are unable to agree a deal with the Pittodrie side.

It has been widely reported that Rangers will have to pay Aberdeen £1.5 million in compensation to take McInnes to Ibrox.

McInnes has Aberdeen just a point behind Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership and they are currently six points ahead of Rangers.

He has long been thought of as a future Rangers manager and it seems that soon he may finally get the job.

Stuart McCall previously took charge of Rangers in March 2015, attempting to get them promoted to the Scottish Premiership.

He was unable to achieve this, losing 6-1 on aggregate to his former club Motherwell in the play-off final.

McCall is currently in charge of his hometown club Bradford City for the second time, they sit in third place in League 1, just outside of the automatic promotion places.

Rangers supporters would quite possibly be underwhelmed by the return of McCall to the main job at Ibrox, and will be hoping that the Derek McInnes deal is sorted as quickly as possible.
