Brian Laudrup has urged Rangers to finally make their move for Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes.

The Great Dane, an Ibrox team-mate of McInnes for three seasons, believes his old club have to go for a safe pair of hands following unsuccessful experiments with Mark Warburton and Pedro Caixinha.

Director of football Mark Allen is working through applications before compiling a shortlist of options for the Rangers board to consider.

Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill has been quoted, while Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Alex McLeish, Alan Pardew and Steve McClaren are also interested.

However, Laudrup urged Rangers to opt for the obvious frontrunner, telling Sky Sports News: 'They went for a manager who probably didn't know the size of the club and unfortunately for him and his staff he was removed after a few months.

'I think what they need right now is somebody to come in who knows the club inside and out.

'In that respect Derek McInnes would be a good signing. Whether it's possible will remain to be seen.'

Laughing off the notion of applying for the post himself, Laudrup added: 'I don' t think I'm the right answer. I've decided not to become a coach but, deep in my heart, I'm still a Rangers man and fingers crossed they will find the right fit for the job.'

Wales boss Chris Coleman has also opened the door to a Rangers interest after admitting his next job is unlikely to be in England.

Coleman has yet to agree an extension with the Welsh FA and said: 'I have always stressed I would love to experience working in the Champions League.

'I am not going to get that from a club in the Premier League. It is just not going to happen, not now. To do that, I would probably have to travel.

'There are very few managers that are in a position to say where they want to work. Jobs in the industry are few and far between.'

Meanwhile, Rangers caretaker boss Graeme Murty has praised the attitude of the squad since he took charge.

Murty assumed the role of manager on a temporary basis following the departure of Caixinha in October.

Since then, Murty has led the club to two wins in the Premiership and has coaxed a reaction out of his players, including Kenny Miller who was left out of the squad towards the end of Caixinha's turbulent reign.

Former Scotland international Murty has been delighted with the attitude of his squad, however, which was questioned under the previous regime following a high turnover of players.

Having taken over for a second spell, Murty told RangersTV: 'I have had that relationship before with some of them and I am starting to build that relationship now with some of the newer players and I am getting to know about them.

'I would like to praise their professionalism because it is not easy when a new voice and face comes in, it can be disconcerting but they have gone after it hard and worked really well.

'I have been impressed with the way they have integrated and interacted with one another which, if you believe reports from outside the club that was not always the case, but I haven't found that to be true.

'The language barrier hasn't been too tough because you have Eduardo Herrera and Bruno Alves who speak fabulous English and if there is a complex part to the session then they can translate. I always make sure everybody understands.

'You have to make sure you choose your words with care because some of the slang you don't get away with because you just get a blank look!

'I have to say if they have a question they are straight out with it and they want to know things.'
