Former Rangers striker Shota Arveladze finds himself back in British football as he has recently been appointed the manager of Championship side Hull City following their recent sacking of Grant McCann.

Hull currently sits in 19th place in the league table, only nine points above the relegation zone and Arveladze will be aiming to keep them in the division.

The club was recently bought by Turkish media mogul Acun Ilicali for a reported £30m and he has high hopes for the future of the club.

Ex-Rangers striker Shota Arveladze can achieve success at Hull City

Arveladze left his position of Pakhtakor Tashkent in 2020 following a trophy-laden spell in charge of the Uzbek side.

The 48-year-old won five trophies at the club and continues his collection of silverware as his managerial career looks set to replicate his trophy-laden playing career.

The striker won two League titles, two Scottish Cups, and a League Cup in a five-year spell between 2001 and 2005.

The Georgian was a popular figure amongst the Ibrox faithful and contributed heavily during a successful spell under Alex McLeish.

His career drew to a close after spells with AZ Alkmaar and Levante before taking up managerial roles in Turkey, Israel, and Uzbekistan.

His move to Hull is the first time Arveladze will be managing in British football and with his recent success, he could well be an excellent choice as Hull aims to get back amongst the Premier League big boys.

Everyone at Rangers will be keeping a close eye on their results and hoping he can do well in the Championship.

Meanwhile, Rangers have signed Manchester Utd player Amad Diallo, but who is the 19-year-old and what can he bring to the club as they chase success.
