The process by which Rangers will select their next manager is yet to be completed, despite rumours of a boardroom split over who is best suited to take over from Michael Beale.

Australian Kevin Muscat and Belgian Philippe Clement have been the hot favourites for the role with both interviewed to become the 19th permanent manager of the club.

But suggestions there is a disagreement between key Ibrox decision-makers as to who will take the role have been strenuously denied by sources who point out that talks remain live.

It's understood that the entire working week has been blocked off by c-suite management to ensure the process is as meticulous as possible and that each candidate is given the chance to state their credentials fully.

Insiders say it's impossible for there to be disagreement when the process, led by CEO James Bisgrove and chairman John Bennett, remains incomplete and findings have yet to be presented to the wider board.

Rangers sacked Michael Beale at the start of the month after three defeats in seven domestic games and he failed to take them into the Champions League group stages after a 7-3 aggregate defeat to Dutch side PSV.
