RANGERS have confirmed that no interviews have taken place as they continue their search for Pedro Caixinha’s successor.

The Portuguese left Ibrox last month following the Betfred Cup semi-final defeat to Motherwell and Premiership draw with Kilmarnock.

A number of names have been linked with the Light Blues hotseat as Director of Football Mark Allen oversees the search for the next Gers boss.

The likes of Steve McClaren, Gus Poyet, Alan Pardew and Michel Preud'homme have been rumoured to be in the running but none of the quartet are likely to be given the chance to succeed Caixinha at Ibrox.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is on Rangers’ radar but Gers chiefs have made no approaches to any club or candidate at present.

A statement read: “The club confirms that since the departure of Pedro Caixinha it has received numerous applications for the now vacant position and is anticipating further applications by the end of next week.

“The Club will then consider all viable options available to it. At this time the Club has not interviewed any candidate and will take its time to ensure that the best possible decision is made.”
