Stuart McCall insists Rangers are well within their rights to look at other options as they weigh up a decision on who to appoint as their long-term boss.

The former Ibrox midfielder was named interim manager at the beginning of March and charged with rescuing the club's promotion bid.

But on Wednesday it was reported the Ibrox outfit had sounded out MK Dons boss Karl Robinson about the prospect of leading the side next season.

A source close to the highly-rated 34-year-old was quoted claiming Gers were the "right club" at the "wrong time".

But McCall has not given up hope of landing the job on a permanent basis himself.

His hopes could hang on whether he can finish off Queen of the South tomorrow.

McCall said: "Would it bother me if the club were speaking to other people? Not at all. When I first came into the job I knew what was being asked of me. It gave me the opportunity to come in.

"But I was always aware of what the gig was.

"It's rightly so that the club will be speaking to other people."
