Rangers expect yet another new appointment at Ibrox within weeks, talks 'live'

Rangers expect to appoint a new sporting director in the next “few weeks,” according to the club’s CEO James Bisgrove.

The Ibrox outfit have been without a sporting director since Ross Wilson left for Premier League side Nottingham Forest in April.

He spent three-and-a-half years at the Scottish club, helping them win a 55th league title, as per the official Rangers website (12 April).

When asked when the sporting director will be named, Bisgrove replied, as quoted by the Daily Record: “Hopefully in the next few weeks and months. Conversations are live and we’ll see.”

Exciting times?

Rangers supporters haven’t had many reasons to celebrate this season, or even in recent years, with a severe lack of trophies at Ibrox lately.

Making things more painful is the fact that those trophies have gone the way of their fierce rivals Celtic, who are once again flying high under Brendan Rodgers.

But many Gers fans will now be confident of catching the Bhoys given that Michael Beale has been replaced by Philippe Clement in the dugout.

Beale endured a difficult start to the season, with losses against the likes of Celtic and Aberdeen not going down well with the powers that be. In his defence, the manager was left to do the summer transfer dealings all by himself following Wilson’s exit.

But that doesn’t look like being the case for the new man in the dugout following Bisgrove’s latest admission regarding the imminent arrival of a new sporting director at Ibrox.

In other Rangers news, a BBC Sport journalist has shared a “big” problem that Clement must “tackle” to succeed at Ibrox.
