At the Rangers AGM, chairman Dave King gave a major update on the club’s search for a new manager.

He confirmed that the shortlisted candidates for the vacant managerial role at Ibrox include those who are currently under contract and stated there should be something to report shortly.

Gers are still searching for a permanent boss to succeed Pedro Caixinha, who was sacked last month after the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes and former Rangers boss Alex McLeish remain the bookies favourites for the job, but have both publicly distanced themselves from the role.

King’s statement will be seen as an admission that McInnes is still being heavily considered for the role.

King was speaking at the club’s third Annual General Meeting since the current board took over in March 2015.

The Rangers chairman also said that the board take full responsibility for Caixinha’s appointment, after he was sacked after only seventh months in charge.

The club have stressed their intention to take as much time as necessary in making an appointment, but supporters are growing increasingly restless.

The meeting has put more pressure on the board to make an announcement as soon as possible and King’s confirmation that there should be something to report shortly will no doubt come as relief to Gers fans.

On the pitch, Rangers moved to within three points of second-placed Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership table with a 3-0 win over the Dons, who they face again on Saturday, at Ibrox last night.

In other Rangers, caretaker boss Graeme Murty has heaped praise on this 19-year-old for his “exceptional” performance against Aberdeen last night.
