Rangers reportedly could land the man Caixinha rejected in the coming days

A new backroom staff could be appointed at Rangers before the end of the week according to reports, with Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes set to arrive alongside his assistant Tony Docherty.

Former Scotland international Barry Ferguson is said to be in line to join the Dons manager as the number 3 man in charge at Ibrox, finally landing his Rangers dream return.

Ferguson was close to joining the backroom staff under erstwhile boss Pedro Caixinha, but the Portuguese opted for Jonatan Johansson instead after the interview in March.

Ferguson, 39, played alongside McInnes at Ibrox between 1995 and 2000, captaining the Light Blues to 5 Scottish Premier League, Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup apiece, including a treble in 2002–03.

Regarded as one of the best Scottish footballers of his generation, the club can sure do with the first-hand influence of one of their legends on their youngsters.

Ferguson and McInnes could both help Rangers back to the top of Scottish football if they are indeed appointed.
