Three players who could follow reported frontrunner Caixinha to Rangers
COMMENT By Harvey Byrne
Rangers have been on the lookout for a manager since Mark Warburton departed from the club on February 10.
On Thursday it was reported by the Scottish Sun that Portuguese boss Pedro Caixinha was the frontrunner for the position after impressing during an interview with the Gers’ hierarchy.
The 46-year-old is currently manager of Qatari outfit Al-Gharafa Sports Club and here, Football Insider have identified three possible players who could follow him to Glasgow in the next transfer window if he does take charge.
Rangers fans need no introduction to the Slovakian midfielder after he starred for the club during a loan move in the 2010-11 campaign.

He has since had a colourful career, playing in Spain, Italy and Greece before finally ending up in Qatar.
At 27 Weiss’ career is still far from over and he may be tempted by a return to Ibrox if the opportunity arises.
Additionally, he would be an instant hit with supporters after being known to poke fun at fierce rivals Celtic on social media.
Hungarian Nemeth is another player to have previously featured in the United Kingdom having once been on the books at Liverpool and Blackpool.
He has also played around the globe similarly to Weiss and even featured for his country in last summer’s Euro 2016 campaign.
Rangers are currently lacking goals in their 11 and Nemeth, who’s contract is set to run out in the summer could be viewed as a cheap answer for Caixinha.
Warburton identified a lack of expereince in his team after winning promotion in the summer and added the likes of Joey Barton, Matt Gilks, Clint Hill, Niko Kranjcar and Philippe Senderos to his team.
However, four out of the five have struggled to make an impact in Glasgow with Barton and Gilks having already departed from the club.
Now, Mubarak, 32, certainly boasts plenty of experience after clocking up 138 appearances with Al-Gharafa and French side AS Saint-Etienne across his career.
Additionally, he would certainly add some strength to what many fans believe to be a weak midfield and Caixinha may look to bring him across.
