Former Birmingham boss Gary Rowett has made the Rangers board aware of his interest in the current managerial vacancy, according to a report.

The Scottish Sun has claimed that the 42-year-old is looking to take charge of the Scottish giants after Mark Warburton’s departure on Friday evening.

It was announced by the club’s official Twitter account that they had accepted the resignation of the Championship winning boss after a poor run of form.

A large number of managers have been linked with the gigantic club, including Alex McLeish, who refused to rule out a return to Ibrox on Sunday afternoon.

However, Rowett’s name has not been talked about too much with the vacant position and he is currently priced at 25/1 for the job, according to bookmakers SkyBet.

The relatively young manager has enjoyed his short career on the touchline to date after two play-off places with Burton in League Two before helping to improve Birmingham until what many considered to be an unjustly sacking in December.

It is unclear whether the Rangers hierarchy are looking  to replace Warburton with a big name, which Rowett is not, or an up and coming manager which he certainly fits the ball for.

In other Rangers news, Billy Gilmour shared this Twitter message on Sunday after being involved with the first team.
