RANGERS are pleased to announce the appointment of Neil McIlhargey as the club’s new Head of Analysis.

Neil starts his post today after previously working with Mark Warburton and David Weir in a similar role at former club, Brentford.

He ran the analysis department for several years at Griffin Park after being appointed by Warburton during his tenure as Sporting Director at the Bees.

McIlhargey’s appointment marks the latest step in the rebuilding of the club’s off field staff as he joins Craig Flannigan and Frank McParland as recent additions to Warburton’s support staff at Murray Park.

Manager Mark Warburton said: “Neil is another great addition to the support staff.

“He has outstanding quality, subject knowledge and a real drive to perform and he knows what David and I want out of a game from an analytical perspective.”
