The Aberdeen manager remains top of the wanted list, but director of football Mark Allen has been asked to put together a list of potential candidates.

Former Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew and Belgian coach Michel Preud’Homme have been linked with the vacancy, but Ibrox sources insist they haven’t interviewed anyone.

Rangers have unveiled a revamped scouting department featuring former nine-in-a-row defender John Brown.

Andy Scoulding has been appointed head of scouting.

He was a performance analyst for the England national team under Roy Hodgson before moving to Valencia with Gary Neville.

We need to do our due diligence

Director of football Mark Allen

Brown, who has previously worked as a coach and scout for Rangers, will head up their domestic department, while Dave Swanick comes in as European scout having performed the same role for Aston Villa.

Billy McLaren moves internally from an academy role to help recruit young players.

Allen, who made the appointments, believes Rangers must do their research properly before hiring a new boss.

The former Manchester City academy director said: “We need to do our due diligence and be sure this process is given the right time to find the right person.”
