Longtime Manager Walter Smith Returns To Rangers As Non-Executive Director
Published November 13, 2012
CELEBRATED RETURN: The SCOTSMAN reported that the move was "a huge coup" for CEO Charles Green, who has been "trying to bring Smith on board" since he launched a takeover bid hours after Green's Sevco Scotland company initially took control at Ibrox in July. Smith described his appointment as "a great privilege" (SCOTSMAN, 11/11). Smith: "I must make it clear, however, that I will not be playing any role in the day-to-day running of the club or the team. It’s the manager’s job to run the team and the chief executive’s job to run the club’s affairs." McCoist: “I am delighted to see Walter involved in the club again. He has done it all and is a Rangers man through and through. His presence will be a huge benefit” (Scotland DAILY RECORD, 11/12).
SCOTTISH NATIONAL TEAM COACH: The SCOTSMAN reported that former Scotland captain Graeme Souness has "ruled himself out of the running" for the Scotland national team coaching job and has "thrown his backing behind" former player, coach and Manager Joe Jordan instead. Asked if he would be open to an approach from the Scottish Football Association, Souness said: “No, it’s not for me. I think your man is Joe Jordan. He would be my choice if I was making the decision" (SCOTSMAN, 11/12).
