RANGERS are delighted to announce the appointment of Graeme Murty as Head Development Squad Coach.
Graeme enjoyed a long playing career in the English Championship and Premiership spending more than ten years at Reading. His last club as a player was Southampton and he also played at international level for Scotland.
Following his playing career he was employed as a coach in Southampton’s highly rated Academy before moving to Norwich City. Graeme is leaving the position as Under 18 coach at the Canaries to join Rangers.
He has recently completed the English Premier League’s Elite Coach Apprenticeship Scheme which is an intensive two year course designed to accelerate the learning and development of coaches at Premiership clubs who have demonstrated the potential to be future elite coaches.
Rangers Head of Academy, Craig Mulholland commented: “As we aim to create a modern progressive Academy it is important that we appoint individuals who understand our philosophy and will fit into our one club culture, we believe in Graeme we have found such an individual.
“Graeme demonstrated throughout the process a desire to learn and improve and that is what we seek to achieve on a daily basis with our players and staff.
“He will be able to pass on his experience of playing at the top level to our young players in order to best prepare them for the demands of playing for Rangers, and he has gained great experience working at two excellent Academies in England.
“His recent work on the Premierships ECAS course will have developed him further as a coach and we believe Rangers and our young players will benefit from his input as a modern innovative coach.”
Graeme will commence his new role with the club on 22 August.
