According to the Scottish Daily Mail (17/02/2017), Rangers are interested in bringing Craig Moore back to the club as their new Director Football.

It has been an eventful week for Rangers, as last Friday, they announced that manager Mark Warburton had resigned from his post, along with assistant boss David Weir and Head of Recruitment Frank McParland.

Graeme Murty took caretaker charge of the side for last weekend's 2-1 Scottish Cup win over Morton at Ibrox, and whilst the search for a new manager is on, a Director of Football is also on the Rangers wish list.

Managing Director Stewart Robertson told the club's official website earlier this week that Rangers want to land a Director of Football to adopt a modern structure, and a former Gers captain is being linked with the job today.

The Scottish Daily Mail (17/02/2017) report that former Rangers captain Craig Moore is being considered for a return to Ibrox having built up a strong reputation for himself in his native Australia.

Moore, 41, racked up more than 250 appearances for Rangers across two spells with the club, winning a total of five league titles as well as four Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cups.

A former Gers skipper, Moore was a popular figure at Ibrox, and having ended his playing days in 2010, he was appointed Football Operations Manager at Brisbane Roar in 2015, and his work in Australia appears to have attracted the interest of Rangers.

It's also stated that Watford's sporting director Luke Dowling – who has been in the job since September 2014 – is another candidate for the job, though prising him away from the Premier League may be difficult.
