Swansea City boss Russell Martin is not currently under consideration by Rangers to become their new manager, as per a recent report by the Glasgow Times.
The promising young coach was previously linked with the role at Ibrox after it was revealed that their current manager, Steven Gerrard, is set to takeover at Aston Villa.
However it has now been revealed that the former Rangers defender is not on the list of potential candidates that has been drawn up by the club’s sporting director Ross Wilson.
Martin is no stranger to the Gers, having previously spent time on loan there as a player back in 2018.
Alas he will not be making the move north to link up with the Scottish champions, with the Glasgow club looking to go in a different direction once Gerrard departs for Villa Park.
Martin’s only experiences to date as a head coach have come at MK Dons and at Swansea, with his possession based style of play receiving plenty of praise from opposing managers and pundits alike.

The 35-year-old is under contract with the Welsh side until the summer of 2024.
This will come as a slight relief to fans of the Swans as they are a club that are no strangers to having their managers poached, having had it done to them in previous years.
It is unclear as to whether Martin would have been interested in the role but the fact that he is not under consideration means that he can focus on the task in hand at the Swansea.com Stadium.
He has slowly turned things around after a disappointing start to the campaign and is starting to prove his Championship pedigree to a lot of his doubters.
It will certainly be interesting to see if he can get the club to the same position that they found themselves in under Steve Cooper last season.
