Barry Ferguson thinks that Derek McInnes is the best candidate for the position of next Rangers manager.
McInnes has been the favourite for the job since the sacking of Pedro Caixinha last month.
He has led Aberdeen to three runners-up positions in a row in the Scottish Premiership, and won the Dons their only trophy in 25 years, the 2014 Scottish League Cup.
As yet, no contact has been made between the Rangers and Aberdeen boards and McInnes remains in charge at Pittodrie.
Despite what looks like an impasse between the clubs, Ferguson feels that his former Rangers teammate is the ideal man for the job.
“I feel Rangers need someone who knows the values of the club and the pressure that comes with it,” he wrote in his column on the Daily Record website.
“I saw Henning Berg’s name was mentioned in Record Sport yesterday and I’ve also heard Tim Sherwood and Gus Poyet’s names being aired.
“No disrespect to the aforementioned names but I don’t think they really understand what Rangers are all about.
“That’s why they have to go and get Derek McInnes.”
Graeme Murty has been in interim charge of Rangers since Caixinha was sacked.
He has lead the Gers to two victories in a row, against Hearts and Partick Thistle.
He goes for three in a row against Hamilton at Ibrox tomorrow.
