United owner Mike Ashley has a 8.92 per cent stake in Rangers, and former Newcastle managing director Derek Llambias is chief executive at Ibrox.

Speaking in November, former then-manager Ally McCoist revealed he had been watching a number of United’s fringe players with a view to taking one or more on loan.

McCoist said: “I’ve been for a look at some of Newcastle’s young players already.”
