SkyBet have Aberdeen Derek McInnes as favourite to replace Caixinha once again after drifting behind Alex McLeish in the running.
The Gers face Aberdeen at Ibrox on Wednesday night before heading to the Granite City to face the Dons at Pittodrie on Sunday afternoon.
Derek McInnes’ side have a six-point cushion over the Gers in the Scottish Premiership and could effectively kill any hopes of the Light Blues finishing second with two wins.
Murty is expected to be in the dugout for both games against the Dons as the club continue their search for a new manager.
In other Rangers news, a new favourite has emerged for the managers job at Ibrox.
