Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood is interested in taking over from sacked Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha.

Caixinha was sacked by the Gers three weeks ago and Sherwood admits he would like to speak with the Ibrox hierarchy to see if their ambitions match.

Sherwood’s last job was as director of football at Swindon Town before he was sacked following their relegation in May.

The former Spurs and Aston Villa manager admits he’ll talk to anyone at the minute as he looks to get back into the game.

“Yeah I would consider any job at the moment,” Sherwood said when asked about Rangers on Sky Sports’ The Debate programme on Wednesday 15th November.

“I will talk to anyone and see if their ambitions meet mine, so yeah certainly.”

The former England international replaced Andre Villas-Boas as White Hart Lane in 2013 as he took his first steps in management but was sacked less than six months later after taking Spurs to sixth in the Premier League.

Sherwood returned to management not long afterwards when he took over from Paul Lambert at Aston Villa but was sacked within the year after an incredible 10-game winless run left Villa on the brink of relegation.

Football Insider verdict: Sherwood must be getting bored of punditry but he;s going to have to put up with it for a while longer as there’s virtually no chance that he’s the next Rangers manager. Sacked within 12 months at his last three clubs doesn’t exactly paint a picture of the type of manager Rangers have said they want. Not to mention the fact that there are few people on the planet who rate Tim Sherwood’s managerial ability anywhere near as highly as Tim Sherwood does. In all honesty, Rangers would be better re-appointing Caixinha than hiring Sherwood.
