Rangers have appointed former Liverpool chief scout and academy director Frank McParland as the club’s head of recruitment.

The Gers have been in phenomenal form this season and with nine wins out of nine in the Scottish Championship, they are odds on favourites to secure a berth in the top tier of Scottish football next season.

With an eye on the future, the club have managed to lure former Liverpool chief scout and academy director McParland to Ibrox and he has been appointed as the head of recruitment at Rangers.

The 56-year-old was credited with the development of Raheem Sterling and Jordan Ibe at Liverpool and the Gers will be hoping that he makes the same kind of impact in Scotland.

A statement on the club’s official website read: “Rangers Football Club is today delighted to announce the appointment of Frank McParland as Head of Recruitment.


“McParland is the latest appointment to be made at Rangers as the club strives to modernise, move forward and return to the highest echelons of the game.

“New benchmarks and standards must be set both on and off the field of play, and everyone at Rangers wishes Frank the very best in his new role.”

McParland worked with Mark Warburton as director of football at Brentford and both left the club at the same time earlier in the summer.

He was working as a sporting director at Burnley before Rangers managed to convince him to move to the north of the border.
