Nottingham Forest were linked with a swoop for Sean Dyche earlier this season but he could now be in line for the Rangers vacancy.

According to Football Insider, the 51-year-old is extremely keen to discuss the managerial position at Ibrox with the club.

Dyche has claimed in the past that he’s got a relationship with Gers figure Ross Wilson and that could help his chances.

Rangers decided to end their association with Giovanni van Bronckhorst yesterday following a poor run of form.

Now, Dyche could be in contention just months after Forest were thought to be preparing to pounce.

After a 4-0 defeat to Leicester in October, the Reds were reportedly preparing to sack Steve Cooper.

Several managers were linked with the position should one arise, including Rafa Benitez and Dyche.

The experienced manager has been out of work since April when he was sacked by Burnley after almost 10 years in charge.

Dyche is keen to get back into management and will hope that his next job can be as successful as his time at Burnley was.

The work he did with the Clarets saw them establish themselves as a Premier League club before their relegation last season.

Dyche was gone before the final nail was placed in their coffin, however, and his stock is still quite high.

This would be a decent addition for Rangers and he should be capable of ruffling some feathers north of the border.

Rangers need to do something in order to receive their campaign that has fallen off a cliff recently.

Under Van Brockhorst they became the worst side in Champions League history and are way off the pace in the title race.

Dyche might have been a safe pair of hands for Forest to consider as an alternative to Cooper.

After the 42-year-old penned a new three-year contract, however, it seems unlikely there will be a vacancy any time soon.

As a result, Dyche will likely need to look elsewhere and the Rangers job could be perfect for him.
