Rangers drop major transfer hint ahead of summer rebuild

Rangers have dropped a major transfer hint ahead of what is expected to be a busy summer at Ibrox as the club steps up the hunt for a recruitment analyst.

The Gers are advertising for the post as they look to secure the talents of someone who can analyse and identify cost-effective players across the globe.

With several players out of contract and other key stars entering the final year of their deal, there is expected to be a sizeable turnover of players this summer.

As a result Rangers appear to be sourcing a new recruitment analyst with the job being hosted on the Training Ground Guru.

The full-time gig will see the successful applicant work from the Rangers Training Centre and report to the Head of Scouting, Andy Scoulding.

Working alongside sporting director Ross Wilson, the ultimate aim of the recruitment analyst will be maximise the impact data has on Rangers’ talent identification process.

This will serve to “provide contextual insights that support our recruitment process”.

Rangers in hunt for recruitment analyst

The ideal candidate will have strong player knowledge and exceptional communication skills, both verbal and written.

Being a recruitment analyst is an exciting job for whoever manages to get it and we suspect this very modern football role will be popular with a host of amateur analysts promoting several players to Rangers on social media.

Here are the four main responsibilities expected of the successful applicant:

  • Use data to play a leading role in the club’s talent identification process.
  • Provide contextual insights to enhance the club’s scouting and recruitment process.
    • Support the talent identification process using data.
    • Compare, contrast, and benchmark players using data.
    • Support the delivery of data insights using various digital methods.
    • Create impactful technical reports and dossiers on targeted players.
    • Combine data from various sources to aid the club’s recruitment process.
  • Ensure the club’s use of data is accurate and consistent, from first team, through the Academy and across the Women’s teams.
  • Support innovation, growth, and future development of the club’s internal data infrastructure.

As part of an expected rebuild, could Rangers step up reported interest in a Brazilian attacker currently plying his trade in Portugal?
