Rangers might not appoint Director of Football after all

Ross Wilson isn't coming, Paul Mitchell has yet to materialise, so we might not bother...

Rangers may wait longer to appoint a Director of Football, according to Alison Conroy of Radio Clyde.

The reporter stated that Rangers now see the appointment of a Director of Football as "a longer term project", which is pretty unclear. Whether that means it's another month or another year until we can get one, nobody really has a clue.

Of course, Conroy might not be right on this one. But it seems like a bit of a problematic situation. We appear to have stashed all of our eggs in Ross Wilson's basket, and while there was talk of going for Paul Mitchell at Tottenham, nothing concrete has so far materialised.

It's somewhat problematic that we can't find a replacement, but it puts us in a difficult position. The understanding that the next managerial appointment absolutely must be the right one has led many fans to give the board some leeway over taking so long to appoint one. The same can be said for a Director of Football - although, of course, they'll be doing the bulk of their work in the summer, and might need some time to get to grips with the club and our available markets before then.

In summary - right now, nobody has a clue. Still, stay tuned to see what happens. We're expecting an announcement and probable unveiling of Pedro Caixinha around Friday.
