RANGERS FOOTBALL CLUB is delighted to confirm Jonatan Johansson as an assistant coach at the Club.

Currently working as assistant manager with Finland’s national team, Jonatan brings a wealth of experience to the role and his extensive knowledge of Scottish football will be invaluable to the new management team.

Johansson spent three successful years at Ibrox between 1997 and 2000 – scoring 25 times in 71 appearances – with 18 of his strikes coming during the Treble-winning campaign of season 1998-99.

Johansson’s career began in Finland with Pargas IF before switching to TPS and FC Flora ahead of his move to Glasgow and he also enjoyed a productive spell in the English Premier League with Charlton Athletic followed by a loan spell at Norwich City.

Malmo in Sweden was his next destination but he returned to Scotland to feature for Hibs and St Johnstone before ending his playing career back at TPS in 2011.

As a coach, Jonatan spent three years in charge of Motherwell’s under-20 side – between 2012 and 2015 – before landing the Finland number two job in December.

He retired with 106 full international caps for his country and is looking forward to taking up his new role with the Light Blues.
