Giovanni van Bronckhorst is set to be sacked by Rangers after one year in charge at Ibrox.
Rangers are currently nine points behind leaders Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.
It also follows a sobering Champions League campaign which saw the club lose all six group stage matches, a run that included a 7-1 hammering by Liverpool at home.
Van Bronckhorst – who signed a three-and-a-half year deal to replace Steven Gerrard last November – will become one of the shortest-serving permanent managers in the club’s history, with only Pedro Caixinha and Paul Le Guen departing sooner.
The Scottish Premiership is now on hold for the World Cup, with Rangers’ next game against Hibernian at Ibrox on December 15, live on Sky Sports.
