Rangers push for high-calibre appointment as Liverpool news emerges - Finance Expert

We’re delighted to welcome football finance expert Dr Daniel Plumley as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Rangers...

Dan Plumley has insisted that Rangers are pushing for “high-calibre” appointments from the boardroom as they look to push the club forward once again.

It comes after Alan Nixon reported on 5 November that the Bears were looking to appoint the Liverpool academy manager as their new director of football.

The finance expert admitted that the challenge is to extract these figures out of big Premier League clubs after a failed move for Sam Jewell at Brighton beforehand.

“Sights are set high,” he exclusively told Ibrox News.

“That’s great from a club perspective and obviously for showing the fanbase that they mean business.

The trick and the challenge is, as we said with the previous one, you have got to extract those people from highly prominent roles in the first place and that is a challenge, there is no guarantee you get those people.

In terms of aiming high and setting your standards, they are high-calibre appointments if you were to pull those off so it shows the way in which the board are trying to rally round and get that direction travel again moving forward pretty quickly.”

Rangers are still looking for a direct replacement for Ross Wilson, who left the club to join Nottingham Forest back in April after a compensation package was agreed.

In other Rangers news, Plumley has insisted that the club can argue they have missed out after a £900m+ deal was signed off
