Nottingham Forest are keen to recruit Rangers academy chief Craig Mulholland, according to a report.
Ibrox fans site Got The Battle Fever On claim Forest manager Mark Warburton wants to be reunited with Mulholland after they worked together at the Scottish giants.
It is said that Warburton is a big admirer of the long-serving Rangers man for his role in restructuring the youth system at Auchenhowie.
Warburton is reportedly keen to make a move should historic big club Forest, who have won the European Cup twice, avoid relegation from the Championship in the final weeks of the season.
Got The Battle Fever On, which has a growing reputation for breaking stories, including that Michael O’Halloran had refused to play for the club’s Under-20s last month, claim Rangers are aware of the interest in Mulholland.
Should the academy chief leave, Graeme Murty is lined up to replace him and assume overall responsibility for the various age groups at Auchenhowie after an impressive spell with the Under-20s and short stint as caretaker manager with the first team.
Former Queens Park, Hamilton Accies, Dumbarton and Alloa Athletic player Mulholland joined Rangers in 2003 from the Scottish Football Association.
He was initially appointed Football In the Community Manager at Rangers and held a number of different roles at the club before being appointed head of the academy in January 2015.
Celtic have already retained the title and destroyed third-placed Rangers’ hopes of overhauling Aberdeen in the race to finish second last weekend.
The Hoops have accumulated a remarkable 94 points from 34 league matches, 36 more than Rangers, who are also nine adrift of second-placed Aberdeen.
