Mark Warburton's reign as Rangers manager

Davies is a very experienced manager but his name coming into the frame certainly is a surprise as the 52-year-old has been out of management since 2014.

A host of names have unsurprisingly already been linked with the hot seat at the Ibrox Stadium and now according to reports, claims have been made that ex-Nottingham Forest boss Billy Davies has emerged as the favourite to take over at Rangers. The contorted drama began on Tuesday when Warburton's agent, Dave Lockwood, approached the Ibrox directors and asked for the trio to be released from their contracts, which had nearly another year to run.

The club said they had granted the English manager his wish to leave Ibrox, following negotiations with his representatives.

But now it is understood that Warburton was unaware that the statement put out.

But Rangers stood by the announcement, meaning Warburton's tenure is over.

"Rangers has accepted the resignations of manager Mark Warburton, assistant manager David Weir and the Club's head of recruitment Frank McParland", a statement on the club's website read.

However, BBC Sport claim the Sky Blues have not put the prolific goalscorer in the shop window despite reports the club want to cash in on him.

"He's humiliated the team, on the pitch and off the pitch and it's good riddance, as far as I think the Rangers board think of Mark Warburton".

With Rangers 27 points behind Ladbrokes Premiership leaders Celtic, it was reported McParland was considering his future due to unhappiness over his signings record and a lack of resources. But that position changed as Forest handed caretaker Gary Brazil the reins until the end of the season.

Rangers' Under-20s coach Graeme Murty is expected to take charge of the team on in interim basis.
