HARRY REDKNAPP

Hughes has undoubtedly been under more pressure because of the availability of Redknapp following his departure from Tottenham in the summer.

Rangers fans have been calling for Redknapp to step in and it would be a major surprise if a man with so much Premier League experience did not head owner Tony Fernandes' list

.

SVEN-GORAN ERIKSSON

If Fernandes is after a big-name manager then Eriksson could fit the bill.

The Swede's most recent position in England was as Leicester boss last year but his Premier League experience with Manchester City as well as the five years he spent as England manager could sway the Rangers chief.

ALAN CURBISHLEY

Curbishley has been linked with many managerial vacancies since leaving West Ham more than four years ago but this might turn out to be the one that sees him return to the game.

His achievements with Charlton remain hugely impressive.

GIANFRANCO ZOLA

The 46-year-old is well liked and would add a touch of Italian flair to Loftus Road.

Did a solid if unspectacular job with West Ham while his current side, Watford, are two points off the Championship play-off spots.

GUS POYET

If Fernandes looks outside the Premier League then Poyet may well be the man who catches his eye.

The former Chelsea and Tottenham midfielder has taken Brighton from the League One relegation zone to the Championship promotion race in three years.

ROBERTO DI MATTEO

Di Matteo's stock is high after his time at Chelsea which came to an end on Wednesday.

The Italian led the Blues to Champions League and FA Cup glory last season after stepping in, initially on a temporary basis, when Andre Villas-Boas was sacked.
