Rangers are closing in on the appointment of a new director of football, according to the Daily Mail.

The Ibrox giants have long been reported to be on the search for a new senior man to add to their backroom staff with former recruitment chief Frank McParland leaving alongside Mark Warburton in February.

A number of names have been linked in recent months, like Southampton’s Ross Wilson and Tottenham’s Paul Mitchell, but the Mail report does not detail who it could be.

The Glasgow club are undergoing mass changes this summer as March appointment Pedro Caixinha looks to improve last season’s third placing alongside pushing further in the Europa League.

They have already confirmed the signings of Bruno Alves from Cagliari and Ryan Jack on a free transfer from Aberdeen, while the Mail also states that Eduardo Herrera, Fabio Cardoso and Dalcio are all set to undergo medicals with Rangers on Monday.

The Scottish heavyweights will be looking to close the gap with fierce rivals Celtic in the next campaign, who finished a huge 39 points in front at the top of the Premiership table.

A good director of football appointment could certainly help close that gap and Rangers fans are now expected to be eagerly awaiting who the incoming arrival could be.
