Steve McClaren would be open to talking with Rangers over their managerial vacancy, Sky Sports News understands.
McClaren, who is currently working as an advisor to Jordi Cruyff at Maccabi Tel Aviv, is one of a host of names mentioned as a possible replacement for Pedro Caixinha, who was dismissed in November after only seven months in charge.
The Portuguese left the Gers in fourth place in the Scottish Premiership after a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock and a 2-0 Betfred Cup semi-final defeat by Motherwell at Hampden.
The club have not spoken to McClaren but Director of Football Mark Allen has drawn up a shortlist of candidates for the board to consider.
Sky Sports News understands Derek McInnes heads that shortlist, but neither he nor Aberdeen have received an approach from Rangers about the job.
Graeme Murty, the club's head development squad coach, took over in the interim and recorded his second successive win at the weekend with a 3-0 victory over Partick Thistle.
McClaren has not been a full-time boss since his second spell at Derby ended in March. The 56-year-old has also managed Nottingham Forest, FC Twente and Newcastle.
His greatest domestic success was at Middlesbrough, where he won the League Cup in 2004 before finishing as runners-up in the 2006 UEFA Cup.
Rangers are currently fourth in the Scottish Premiership table, with 24 points from 12 fixtures.
