ALEX McLEISH is admant Rangers have not made contact with him over their vacant manager’s position.
One bookmaker has suspended betting on him making a return to Ibrox.
McLeish, who also managed Scotland, previously led Rangers to two league titles.
He also won two Scottish Cup and three League Cups.
He was also the last manager to win the treble at Ibrox, securing all three domestic trophies during the 2002-03 campaign.
But speaking to the BBC, McLeish said: “I would like it to be known that there has been no contact from anyone at Rangers.
“It’s important that the speculation is put to rest.”
McLeish was established as the bookies’ favourite even before Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes, who has also been linked with the role, said last week he was staying at Pittodrie.
