Kenny Black explains Rangers return

Rangers 3

Kenny Black is delighted to be back at Rangers in a coaching capacity.

Kenny Black has spoken of his delight at return to Rangers in a coaching capacity to the club’s official website.

The 51-year-old former midfielder is part of Stuart McCall’s management team at Ibrox, having joined up with the Scot following his appointment as the Scottish club’s boss earlier this month.

Black played for Rangers back in the 1980s, and he is delighted to have returned to the Scottish giants.

“It was a no-brainer for me to join the club,” he told RangersTV. “With the connections that Stuart has here at the club and myself to a lesser extent, it was a great challenge and opportunity for me to come back to where it all started for me…

“I am very passionate about the upbringing that I received when I was at Ibrox because it stood me in good stead for my professional football career.”

“It's been a long long time since I was here as a player, but I'm delighted and honoured to have been appointed.”

Rangers assistant manager Black will now be looking to help take the Glasgow-based outfit back to the Scottish Premiership.

It will not be easy, though, as the Gers will have to do it via the playoffs, having failed to win the Scottish Championship.

Rangers are currently third in the Championship table with 52 points from 28 matches, just three points behind second-placed Hibernian with a game in hand.

The Light Blues will return to league action on Saturday, when they host Cowdenbeath at Ibrox,
