Sometimes the appointment of a new manager calls for evolution, rather than revolution. This has been shown throughout our own clubs history, with Walter Smith stepping up into the Ibrox hotseat from his previous role as Souness’ assistant in April ’91 to guide us to 3 in a row, and subsequently 9.

Gheorghe Hagi – The Interview

By Jamie Currie. There is no denying Gheorghe Hagi’s standing within the world of football. Hagi is a Romanian football legend.

Rangers 1-3 Bayer Leverkusen – tactical analysis
