” I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everybody associated with Glasgow Rangers for giving me the opportunity to manage such an ionic football club”.

” Helping them secure a record-breaking 55th league title will always hold a special place in my heart. I would like to wish the players, staff and supporters the very best for the future”.
