McCann, of course, remains a hero to a lot of Rangers supporters after winning several Premiership titles during his playing days at Ibrox but his name being thrown into the mix is definitely something of a surprise.
Dundee is McCann’s first full-time managerial position and the Dark Blues have struggled at the bottom of the table for much of his tenure, despite a promising 2-1 victory over the Gers ten days ago.
However, according to Odds Checker, McCann’s odds have fallen from as high as 40/1 to 9/2 in the last 24 hours or so, meaning somebody somewhere reckons they know a thing or two.
Of course, Derek McInnes remains the hot favourite to take over from Pedro Caixinha, with odds currently as low as 1/6 for the Dons boss to make the switch.
But what do you make of McCann entering the fray? Is there any way he could be a serious contender?
