Former Rangers full-back David Robertson is set for talks over becoming manager of India’s most successful side, Mohun Bagan – according to a report.

The Scottish Sun claims that Robertson could leave Real Kashmir to take the reins at Mohun Bagan after a phenomenal third-place finish in their first season in the I League.

Last season’s third-placed finish is even more remarkable for Robertson’s side as clubs refused to play in the disputed Kashmir region after tensions grew between India and Pakistan.
