Former Rangers manager Walter Smith has rejected the chance to take charge of Wolves as Mick McCarthy's successor, Press Association Sport understands.

The 63-year-old has been out of football since ending his second spell in charge of Rangers at the end of last season but has declined the opportunity to return to management in the Barclays Premier League.
