Steve McClaren has stepped up his interest in becoming manager of Sevco.
The former England boss is currently working as an adviser in Israel after two disastrous stints in charge of Derby County and steering Newcastle towards relegation.
More than two weeks after sacking Pedro Caixinha Sevco are still unable to scrape together the money needed to meet Aberdeen’s demand to compensate for the loss of Derek McInnes and Anthony Docherty.
According to the Evening Times: “We understand McClaren, currently working as an adviser for Israeli club Maccabi Tel-Aviv, believes the job in Glasgow would be perfect for him in a bid to re-establish his reputation in British football after a personally bruising few years which has seen his stock as a top-level coach fall.
“And it has been made clear to the powers-that-be inside at Rangers that he would be willing to work under their constraints in terms of his own wage and the transfer kitty, which will be far lower than anything he experienced in England.”
McClaren was linked with the Hearts job in the summer before taking up an offer from Maccabi Tel Aviv to assist Jordi Cruyff.
Two matches against Aberdeen later this month could threaten that with a Plan B required if results go against Murty.
