Rangers appoint Graham Wallace

// Published November 25, 2013 by isport

Scottish team Rangers have appointed Graham Wallace, the former chief operating officer of Manchester City, as their new chief executive. The fifty two year old Dumfries man stated that he is looking forward to this new challenge and he would try to lead the club back to the pinnacle of the game in Scotland and beyond.

The businessman would also be a part of board of directors of Rangers International Football Club. The Scottish club has been looking forward to fill up Craig Mather who stepped down previous month.

Graham Wallace has experience in international executive and management responsibilities that includes a four years stint at Manchester City, MTV Networks Europe and IMG.

Speaking to the official website of the club, he told that he is happy to join Rangers Football Club as chief executive as the team continues its journey back to the pinnacle of the game in Scotland and beyond. For over hundred and forty years, this team has been recognized throughout world football. The last few years have been distressing, but there is no reason why Rangers could not be even stronger than they once were before these challenges presented themselves. That strength would be built upon strong leadership of the club and the continuing support of the fans.

Ranger’s chairman David Somers told that Wallace’s business and financial experience clubbed with his knowledge of the game at the highest level would be a huge benefit for the team.
