Rangers boss Warburton confirms two more upcoming staff appointments

Rangers are set to make two more staff appointments in the coming days.

Rangers confirmed the appointment of chief scout Frank McParland yesterday, and Mark Warburton has told the Evening Times that two more staff members will be arriving at Ibrox in the coming days.

“It’s [McParland] a big appointment for us,” Warburton said. “We have got another two appointments coming shortly. We are making progress in key areas.”

There are no indications as to who Rangers are bringing in, or what roles they are looking to strengthen, but the impending arrivals represent another step on the path to recovery for the Gers.

Considering Warburton was talking in the wake of McParland’s arrival, it is likely that the appointments will be in the scouting and youth development areas of the squad, as they are the two roles that McParland is overseeing.

The former Liverpool man is praised with discovering Raheem Sterling and Jordon Ibe with the Reds, and Warburton has made it clear since his arrival at Ibrox that he wants to revive the Gers scouting set-up.

Rangers have faced a number of staff cuts in recent years due to their financial situation, but Warburton has outlined a long-term plan for the club, in which scouting and youth development are the path they take to success.

This means the board have been more willing to accept Warburton’s demands, and these two appointments will follow McParland’s arrival in pushing the Gers one step closer to the ambition that the manager wants to fulfil.
