Rangers have recognised four Academy staff for their fantastic service to the club – with Academy boss Craig Mulholland paying tribute to them as they were presented a gift from the club.
Robin Gibson, former player Ally Dawson, Billy Marshall and Joe Begg were all presented with a gift from Managing Director Stewart Robertson, Sporting Director Ross Wilson and Head of Ambassadors and Business Development Mark Hateley at an event held at Ibrox on the same night that several Academy players featured for Steven Gerrard’s first-team in the Scottish Cup win over Stranraer.
Mulholland was delighted to recognise each of their service of over 20 years to the club, with the quartet racking up almost a century at Rangers between them.
“The first team Scottish Cup tie against Stranraer was a special night for the Academy,” Mulholland told Rangers TV.
“Not only did we see Nathan Patterson and Kai Kennedy make their competitive debuts but we were delighted to present gifts to four dedicated Academy staff who had achieved more than 20 years service at Rangers.
“Robin, Ally, Billy and Joe were well-deserved recipients of a memento from the club to say a genuine thank you for years of hard work and commitment to Rangers, an achievement which was celebrated by all of their Academy colleagues who were also in attendance.
“It is only fitting therefore in keeping with the standards that Rangers is built upon that we recognise and say thank you to four gentlemen who are as committed to our cause and ambitious plans today as they were when they started. Congratulations to all four.”
