RANGERS are delighted to announce Craig Flannigan as the new Head of Performance and Preparation.

Craig is renowned in his field and most recently worked as Hibernian’s Head of Sports Science and Fitness.

The 42-year-old started his playing career at Rangers and appeared for Scotland at all levels from under-16 to under-21 – including an under-16 World Youth Cup Final in 1989.

After his youth spell at the club, he went on to play for Clydebank, Queen of the South and Partick Thistle.

In 2001, Craig retired from playing and went to study Sports Science, after which he worked for a number of Scottish Premiership clubs and as an education coordinator with PFA Scotland.

Preparation is vital to top class performance and Flannigan’s expertise in that area will prove invaluable to the club as Rangers continue a rebuilding process, targeting a place as one of the most modern and progressive clubs in the game.
