Charlie Nicholas has given his take on who should be the next permanent manager at Rangers, saying that Alex McLeish is the perfect fit.

“They needed Alex McLeish in to get the thing stabilised and moving forward,” he told Sky Sports News today, although he added, “Alex may not have agreed to a short-term contract.”

Nicholas also stated that current Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes shouldn’t even think about joining Rangers at this moment in time.

“If I’m Derek McInnes I would not join Rangers now, I’d wait until the summer to start my negotiations” he stated.

Derek McInnes is the favourite to be the next Rangers boss following the sacking of Pedro Caixina in October but as yet no contact has been made between Rangers and Aberdeen.

Graeme Murty will take charge of Rangers once again tonight in the first of this week’s double-header against Aberdeen.

The Gers are currently six points behind the Dons and it’s a match neither side will want to lose.

Murty started off well as interim manager, defeating Hearts and Partick Thistle, but since then results have taken a turn for the worse, with defeats to Hamilton and Dundee.
