Rangers: Head of academy scouting David Stevenson leaving

Rangers: Head of academy scouting David Stevenson leaving -Rangers News

The Athletic journalist Jordan Campbell has shared some significant exit news from Glasgow Rangers.

The Lowdown: Scouting department changes

It was reported earlier this month that the Ibrox outfit’s lead domestic scout Robert Clarkson left the club to head up the FA’s Talent ID from U18 to senior level.

He followed another former member of the scouting department in Andy Scoulding, who took up a role at Premier League Tottenham Hotspur, out the Ibrox exit door.

The Latest: Stevenson leaving too

Taking to Twitter, Campbell has shared that David Stevenson is also exiting the scouting department, leaving his role as the Gers’ academy scouting chief to move into lecturing:

“David Stevenson is leaving his role as Rangers’ academy scouting chief to move into lecturing, with family reasons part of the decision.”

The Verdict: Significant

As Campbell has stated, the Light Blues have undergone significant changes to their backroom staff in recent weeks, and Stevenson is another who has decided to leave the club.

It is slightly worrying for them that three key members of the scouting department have all left their roles, as they will now have to find adequate replacements.

Nonetheless, with Stevenson going, the Teddy Bears will now have to find another scout to help bolster their academy, with Craig Robertson, former chief scout at Aberdeen, reportedly working out of Spain.

With Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s job reportedly on the line as well, the club will surely not want to make too many changes to their backroom staff, in case he is dismissed from his managerial duties.
