Leicester line up Rangers move in “huge coup” for Premier League club

Leicester City are set to poach Rangers club doctor Mark Waller who will leave Ibrox after four years with the club.

Waller was brought into Rangers by ex-manager Steven Gerrard and according to Telegraph journalist John Percy is set to complete a move to the King Power Stadium.

Describing the move as a “huge coup”, Mark Waller leaves Rangers having also spent time working with the England u21s, Aston Villa and Liverpool.

Rangers will also receive some compensation for the doctor but it remains unclear just how much the club will secure.

“Leicester are appointing Rangers doctor Mark Waller to a similar position after agreeing compensation,” claims Percy.

“Dr Waller has previously worked with the Eng u21s, Liverpool & Villa, and his appointment is regarded as a huge coup ahead of next season.”

Mark Waller was part of the Rangers backroom staff that guided the club to an unbeaten 55th title and his contribution was particularly telling in that season.

In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, Waller was thrust up front and centre as the club sought the best ways to deal with the hurdles of the footballing shutdown.

Steven Gerrard – who is known to have a close personal relationship with Mark Waller – also praised the good doctor for his work during this period.

“It has been very challenging for them with the amount of time [off], but I have to pay credit to the medical team and the doctor [Dr Mark Waller] who have performed extremely well in challenging times to make sure the players are getting all the correct work and the doctor has been on call all the time with any questions or doubts from the players,” said Gerrard as the team prepared to return for pre-season training in 20/21 [Rangers].

Meanwhile, a defiant Rangers stance from the same season has proven to be a major success potentially worth £41m.
