Motherwell appoint ex-Rangers keeper Andy Dibble to senior coaching role

Nine in a row Rangers hero Andy Dibble has been appointed as head of goalkeeping at Motherwell, the Premiership side has confirmed.

The Welshman, who had a brief spell at Ibrox as the Gers cinched their ninth consecutive title joins Graham alexander’s coaching staff, having previously been part of the backroom team at Cardiff City when they won promotion to the Premier League five years ago.

Dibble is keen to get started and familiarise himself with his new surroundings as he returns to Scottish football for a third time, having also had a spell at Aberdeen.

“It is exciting to join up with Graham and the rest of the coaching staff,” Dibble said.

“I am looking forward to the season ahead and getting to know everyone.”

Steelmen boss Graham Alexander was excited to confirm Dibble’s appointment after the Welshman left Cardiff City last month following a five-and-a-half-year spell at the club.

“I’m delighted to welcome Andy to the club as head of goalkeeping,” manager Alexander added.

“He has vast knowledge as a coach and his top-level experience from his playing days will certainly help our keepers. Having experienced the Scottish game before, I know how excited he is to join us and help us keep progressing.”

Dibble will work closely with former Rangers keeper at Motherwell

Motherwell are preparing for Europa Conference League second-round qualifier with either Irish Sligo Rovers or Bala Town next month ahead of the Premiership season getting started.

Dibble’s appointment should be a good one for Motherwell, with the Welshman working with former Rangers keeper Liam Kelly at Fir Park.

Kelly has really impressed at Fir Park since returning to Scottish football and he’ll be hoping working with Dibble can help push him into a regular spot in Steve Clarke’s Scotland squad over the coming months.
