Rangers are looking for a new manager after getting rid of Michael Beale on Sunday evening following their defeat to Aberdeen on Saturday.


Muscat is one of the names on their shortlist and he is reportedly interested in having talks with Rangers over their managerial vacancy.




The former defender succeeded Ange Postecoglou at both Melbourne Victory in Australia and Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan and won league titles with them.


McCann insisted that Muscat definitely has experience of winning league titles and is not a rookie in management.



The former Rangers star also pointed out that his former team-mate has the personality for the job and understands the intensity of Scottish football and the rivalry with Celtic.


He stressed that he would be surprised if Muscat was not interviewed.


McCann said on BBC Radio Scotland when asked about Muscat: “The one thing about Kevin Muscat getting spoken about for the job is that he is not a new into management.



“He is not a rookie; he has got titles under his belt.


“Whether people want to play down the titles he has won is up to them but it’s still winning titles.


“It is still knowing how to win things when you get to the business end of the season and how it is done and he has done it by taking his teams over the line.


“As a character, he would be a brilliant acquisition.


“I don’t know personally how he works on the training field but as a presence, he gets Scottish football, he gets the league, he understands the intensity and the rivalry and how to get the job done.


“He was with us when we won the treble.


“So, all those ingredients as a tick box exercise, it is there but then, is he able to lead? I think he is.


“Personality-wise he fits.


“I’d be surprised if he doesn’t go through the process and get interviewed.”


While Muscat is a target, Rangers have made enquiries into the possibility of snaring Ryan Lowe away from Preston as well.
