Gary Rowett is unlikely to become the new manager of Rangers, according to a report.

HITC Sport claim that the 42-year-old has held talks with the Scottish giants about their vacant manager’s role, but it is unlikely he will take charge.

The report details that the Gers are looking for a young head coach with experience of Scottish football, meaning English-based Rowett would be ruled out.

Sky Sports Scotland reported that Alex McLeish and Pedro Caixnha were also in discussion about the Rangers role.

Graeme Murty is currently the caretaker manager at Rangers following the sacking of Mark Warburton.

They managed to earn a narrow 3-2 victory over St Johnstone on Wednesday night, but a disappointing league campaign spelled the end for Warburton.

The Gers are currently third-placed in the league table and six points adrift of Aberdeen in second.

Rowett appears unlikely to return to management with Rangers and he has been without a club since being sacked by Birmingham in December, when the club were seventh in the Championship.

He is a highly rated English manager and also enjoyed a successful spell at Burton prior to his spell at St Andrews.

The ex-Derby player is surely going to be make his comeback in the near future and it will be interesting to see if Rangers regret the snub.
