Champions League outfit linked to behind-the-scenes Rangers swoop that leaves Ibrox chasm


Champions League outfit to poach top Rangers staffer - report

Rangers are set to lose chief scout Andy Scoulding to Tottenham Hotspur as the Premier League outfit return to the Champions League.

That’s according to the Telegraph, who claim that Scoulding will be rewarded with the move after a successful stint at Rangers where the club have built an asset-strewn squad on a budget.

The report makes mention of Ibrox success stories like Joe Aribo, Calvin Bassey and Ryan Kent, and claims Andy Scoulding will join Spurs later in the summer.

Interestingly, because of this Scoulding will not form part of this summer’s recruitment team as Spurs director of football Fabio Paratici presses on with recruitment.

Italian firebrand Antonio Conte is at the helm of Tottenham and will be expecting to be backed as the club look to build on last season’s top 4 finish.

The north London club have already moved to sign out-of-contract Ivan Perisic in this window whilst ex-Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster has followed on a free transfer.

Andy Scoulding already has an impressive CV and his work at Rangers has clearly left an impression, with the scout previously having worked with Liverpool, the English FA and La Liga club Valencia in a variety of roles.

Upon joining Rangers, Scoulding outlined Rangers’ ambitions to be a global player in the football market.

“One of the key things for us is to make sure we don’t just have a European footprint, we have a global footprint and we are able to identify the best talent and then attract them to the football club,” said Andy.

It’ll come as a blow to Rangers to lose Andy Scoulding given his senior role at the club and this is the second behind-the-scenes staffer the club has lost to the Premier League in recent weeks.

Rangers also lost another key member of staff to Premier League riches as an ex-Celtic boss’ current side came a’ knocking.
