Rangers fans are delighted by Jimmy Nicholl appointment

Rangers confirmed on Thursday that they have appointed former player Jimmy Nicholl as the club’s new assistant manager.

The veteran coach played for the club in two spells at Ibrox, winning five trophies before embarking on a long and storied career in the dugout at various levels of Scottish, English and international football.

Most recently at club level he was assistant to Paul Hartley at Falkirk, also being involved in the successful Northern Ireland set-up under Michael O’Neill since 2015.

If nothing else he’ll provide plenty of experience and advice to rookie manager Graeme Murty, whose non-playing career before taking up the Ibrox post consisted solely of youth coaching.

It’s certainly an appointment that has caught the imagination of supporters, many believing that he knows exactly what it takes to be a Rangers player and that he will sort out any lack of motivation in the dressing room.

Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
