Having already had two spells at Schalke coach in the past, Rangnick has been touted as a possible replacement for the recently dismissed David Wagner.
The former RB Leipzig chief fueled the speculation in a recent interview, admitting he 'would be lying' if he said he wasn't interested in Schalke.
But speaking to WAZ on Monday, the 62-year-old has seemingly put the rumors to bed once and for all.
"I can't imagine coming to Schalke 04 for the third time at the moment, and certainly not as a coach, who is supposed to end a poor run of form at a short notice," said Rangnick.
Rangnick has been without a job since resigning from his position as head of sport and development at Red Bull in July 2020.
