Former Middlesbrough, Derby County and England manager Steve McClaren has been approached by Scottish giants Rangers, according to The Sun.

Rangers are looking for a new manager and are also being linked with a move for Aberdeen boss Derek McInness, who turned down the chance to manage Sunderland in the summer.

Steve McClaren is a target for Rangers and he is currently a coach at Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel. The 56 year-old played for the likes of Hull City, Derby County and Oxford United in his playing days. As a manager he has been well travelled and has bags of experience.

McClaren was the assistant manager at Manchester United when they won the treble in 1999 and then worked as the assistant to Sven Goran Eriksen at England before he was appointed manager of Middlesbrough in 2001. He spent 5 seasons with Boro and won the League Cup for them.

In 2006 McClaren was handed the England job. However, he only lasted a year and moved onto FC Twente. He has since managed Wolfsburg, Twente again, Nottingham Forest before coming to Derby in 2013. He did a good job at Derby and took them to the Play-Off final in 2013/14, but they lost to QPR. The season after they narrowly missed out on the Play-Offs and McClaren left for Newcastle.

He came back to Derby in October 2016 but was sacked in March of this year. There is no doubt that McClaren is an experienced manager. If he was handed the Rangers job it would be very interesting to see how he did with them.
