Rangers shareholder Felix Magath not in running for Hearts role - report

Former Bayern Munich manager and, bizarrely, Rangers shareholder Felix Magath is not in the running to replace Craig Levein at Hearts, according to a report.

According to the Scottish Sun, the German is not being considered to take charge at Tynecastle, despite “making his interest known” to the Jambos.

The report also states that former Gers Neil McCann and Stuart McCall have both met Ann Budge as she looks to replace both the manager and director of football.

Magath purchased shares in Rangers back in 2015 and is understood to still hold on to them although after initially looking to have some sort of role at Ibrox, he’s been quiet on his links with the club for a long time.

He was also reportedly interviewed to take over as manager in 2015 after the club decided not to continue with Stuart McCall and most recently worked at Shandong Luneng in 2017.

The German also applied for the Scotland job, losing out to Alex McLeish and would actually have been a very interesting choice for the Tynecastle side.

His vast experience and reputation would see him immediately command respect at Tynecastle but it’s clear that he’s not as good as he was in his heyday as he won Bundesliga titles with Bayern and Wolfsburg.
