Barry Ferguson is set to look out his trackie and take up a coaching role at Ibrox.

According to a report in The Sun the bankrupt BBC Scotland pundit is set to land a key role in Derek McInnes’ backroom staff.

Yesterday the Aberdeen boss hit out at the stories being fed to the media about the Ibrox vacancy with the appointment of Ferguson taking the story to a new level.

Ferguson was a team-mate of McInnes at Rangers (IL) before Dick Advocaat decided to move on the current Aberdeen manager.

Earlier this year Clyde decided to sack Ferguson after almost three years in charge in the bottom tier of Scottish football.

Since then the 39-year-old has concentrated on his media career splitting his time between Radio Scotland and the Daily Record.

Ferguson was interviewed by Pedro Caixinha for a coaching role at Ibrox in the summer but now looks like getting back to Murray Park if McInnes becomes manager.

As a player Ferguson collected £2.5m in ‘EBT’ payements from Rangers (IL) which weren’t declared to the SPL or SFA.
