“In the past week I’ve had my redundancy from @RangersFC confirmed. To say I’m heartbroken to lose a job I loved and committed everything to for the past 6 years would be an understatement. Thank you to everyone who made Rangers & Glasgow my home, I’ll miss you.”

In addition to working with RangersTV, fans will remember Hedworth for appearing alongside Steven Gerrard in the club’s press conferences across the continent.

The move comes after the Gers recently shook-up the background communications department, appointing the likes of PR chief David Graham and investing heavily in the club’s media channel.

A popular figure amongst the club’s support, a mixture of Rangers fans, ex-players and media professionals took to Twitter to thank Hedworth for her service and wish her all the best for the future as she was made redundant.

 

Rangers’ new media team at RangersTV has come in as a result of the coronavirus shutdown and behind closed doors games, with season ticket holders given virtual match passes for home games.

As a result, the Ibrox side has hired the likes of legendary broadcaster Clive Tyldesley to commentate the club’s home games this season.

Press conferences are also now almost universally virtual with the days of buzzing press rooms pre and post-match over for the foreseeable future.
