RANGERS Football Club can today confirm the appointment Matt Konopinski as Head of Medical Services.

Konopinski joins the club from the English FA, where he has worked with the under-18, under-19 and under-21 squads.

Matt began his career in football at Barnsley in 2008, working initially with their Academy, before being promoted to work with the first team.

Following his time at Barnsley, he then moved to join Liverpool, where he worked alongside several of the current Rangers coaching, performance and medical staff, ending his time at Anfield as their Head Physio under boss Jurgen Klopp.

Matt is also an associate lecturer at Leeds Metropolitan University.

Rangers Sporting Director Ross Wilson said: “I’m delighted to welcome Matt to Rangers. We already have some excellent people here and the ability to grow and reinforce that support around our teams during the winter break is a further boost to the quality of our football operation.

“We interviewed Matt in November and it was clear that not only would he be an great addition to our group from a medical perspective but he is also a strong personality fit to the existing staff and the ethos that we are developing going forward.

“We are one club and as we join up our ways of working across all squads Matt will cast his experience and expertise over both the first team and the academy squads.”
