Davis Replaces Beale at Rangers

0 7

Rangers have confirmed Michael Beale’s expected departure and named club favorite Steven Davis as his replacement.

Rangers have officially confirmed the expected departure of Michael Beale and have appointed club legend Steven Davis as his successor.

The calls for Beale’s exit grew louder after a disappointing 3-1 defeat by Aberdeen at Ibrox last Saturday, which saw the players once again being jeered by the fans.

This marked their third loss in just seven cinch Premiership matches, leaving the Light Blues trailing leaders Celtic by seven points and putting their title aspirations in serious jeopardy.

In anticipation of the Europa League clash against Aris Limassol in Cyprus on Thursday night, the club issued a statement detailing these significant changes.

It read: “Rangers can confirm it has parted company with men’s first-team manager Michael Beale.

“The Rangers board would like to put on record their thanks to Michael and his staff for their efforts since joining the club last November.

“Results this season have fallen short of what everyone connected to Rangers would expect.

“Therefore, the decision was reached today to terminate the contract of the manager, as well as the contracts of coaches Neil Banfield, Damian Matthew, Harry Watling and Jack Ade.

“The club is pleased to announce that Steven Davis will lead the interim management team.

“The team will consist of former Rangers player and hugely experienced coach Alex Rae, former player and current coach Steven Smith, coach Brian Gilmour and goalkeeping coach Colin Stewart.”
