RANGERS Football Club have appointed Manchester City operations chief Graham Wallace as their new chief executive, after Craig Mather resigned in October after only six months in the job.

Rangers have been struggling on and off the pitch having been knocked back to the fourth tier of the Scottish Football League after collapsing under a pile of debt.

Wallace, who takes over the role with immediate effect, will seek to bring some stability to the management of the team which has had three chief executives this year.

On the news Wallace said, “I am honoured to have been selected as CEO of Rangers. I am looking forward to meeting the challenges and leading the club to ensure that its off-pitch success matches the performance of the team.”

Wallace previously served as finance chief before taking over as operations chief at Manchester City between 2009 and January 2013.

The Glasgow team has won all 12 league fixtures this season in the Scottish third tier, following on from its promotion at the end of last season.
