The result took away all of Madrid's hopes of a silverware this season, having been knocked out of the Cope del Rey by Barcelona last week and fallen 12-points behind their eternal rivals in the Liga table.

In response to the defeat, Real fans made their feelings known by signing Mourinho's name in the streets of the city, sending a message to the club's management about who they want to take the club forward.

Zidane would not want to return now and maybe not at all, but if he did, it would be in the summer.

Rangers qualified for the group stage of the Europa League for the first time in eight years this season, but finished third behind Villarreal and Rapid Vienna.

Vinicius Juniors is expected to be sidelined for about two months because of an ankle injury sustained in Real Madrid's 4-1 loss to Ajax in the Champions League.

Bale ended the match with a sprained right ankle, but alongside Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas and Spanish defender Sergio Reguilon, trained on Thursday inside the facilities.

Mourinho is believed to have doubts over making a Madrid comeback due to the fact several stars from his toxic first stint at the club remain in the squad.

"There is the option of bringing in Mourinho now, but to me there is no point".

And now it is certain that the Bernabeu outfit will have a new manager at the end of the season. Madrid play Real Valladolid on Sunday night.

Zidane's free-agent status would make him easier to recruit than other candidates to replace Solari, such as Mauricio Pochettino and Max Allegri, while Marca claim former Real manager Jose Mourinho is not being considered. He was given the full-time job - with a contract until 2021 - after being able to put the team back on track despite a dismal start to the season.

"Real Madrid", he said, "has always had more candidates than Julia Roberts".
