He shared his frustration at the team’s continued struggles of late and insisted a Rangers man is needed to turn things around after Pedro Caixinha’s disappointing spell in charge.

And when asked if he had any intention of a return to the club. Wilkins told Jim White, via thescottishsun.co.uk: “Jim, I’m in the frame.

“I would love to be able to help a wonderful football club get back on its feet. And there are so many other ex-Rangers players who’d love to.

“I cried like a baby when I left Rangers after two and a half years.

“The Durrants and the Fergusons were coming up behind me and I didn’t want to get splinters in my backside.

“I knew I was leaving something really special.

“The fans adore this club, we’ve got to give them something to talk about.”

Graeme Murty spoke this morning about the club not being close to naming a permanent manager, but the search was on for the right man.

Now Wilkins’ words suggest that it could be appointment out of left field from Dave King and the board.

Wilkins hasn’t been in a job since being sacked as Aston Villa assistant manager in 2015, but he does have extensive coaching experience in English football over the last 20 years.
