Graeme Murty was handed the reigns as caretaker and led the Gers to a 3-1 victory over Hearts at Murrayfield on Saturday.

The club have received numerous applications from both home and abroad for the post.

But the board are determined to take their time in going through all the candidates before settling on a final shortlist and beginning the interview process.

One man not in the running for the job is Belgian Michel Preud’homme.

The ex-Standard Liege coach and Benfica technical director received an offer from Mechelen in his homeland last week.

He has kept them waiting on his decision while he waits to discover the answer from the Gers.
