Rangers have announced the appointment of Philippe Clement as manager.
The 49-year-old Belgian has signed a 3 and a 1/2 year deal with the Ibrox side.
Clement said: “I am honoured to have been appointed as the new manager of Rangers Football Club and I’d like to thank the board for giving me this opportunity.
“I am hugely excited by this chance to achieve success at one of Europe’s most iconic clubs across four competitions in what remains of this season and beyond.

“I am looking forward to meeting with the players in the coming days and to meeting our supporters at next Saturday’s home match with Hibernian, as we set out together to create a successful, winning Rangers.”

Clement achieved success as a manager in Belgium winning the Pro League title 3 years in a row, firstly with Genk and then Club Brugge.

He was most recently in charge at AS Monaco, where he was sacked in June after sixth in in Ligue 1.

Rangers Chairman, John Bennett said: “I would like to offer my warm congratulations to Philippe as he becomes our 19th manager.

“His appointment comes at the end of a carefully planned and comprehensive recruitment process. A team led by our CEO James Bisgrove, members of the board, and former Rangers player and manager Graeme Souness, has spent the last 10 days interviewing several high calibre candidates, with those individuals undergoing a rigorous interview and vetting process.

“We thank all candidates for their interest in the position.”
