Former Scotland defender Mark Wilson has insisted that Philippe Clement looks like the figurehead manager who is going to end up running Rangers both on and off the pitch in the near future.


Clement has made a massive impact since taking charge of the Rangers side from Michael Beale in October.


The Belgian has led Rangers to a Scottish League Cup and the last 16 of the Europa League.




Rangers are also snapping at the heels of Celtic in the title race and have reached the next round of the Scottish Cup as well.


Wilson admitted that the Belgian has been a symbol for Rangers like some recent managers have failed to do and will end up running the club off the pitch as well in the near future.



He stressed that Clement is the kind of figurehead Rangers have been looking for in their manager’s office for some time.


Wilson said on Clyde 1’s Superscoreboard: “He represents Rangers in the correct way and that has not always been the case.



“He not only looks like a good coach and manager of the team on the pitch but he looks like he is heading in the direction where he will be able to run the club.


“Rangers needed a figurehead like that in the dugout with some authority and it looks like they’ve got their man now.”


Rangers will look to keep the pressure on Celtic in the title race when they take on Ross County at Ibrox on Wednesday night.
