Former Rangers defender Craig Moore is hoping to help the club sign global talents as part of his new project helping African footballers find clubs on other continents.
Moore played over 250 times for the Gers in the 1990s and 2000s, winning 12 trophies with the club, so knows a fair bit about what it takes for players to make an impact at Ibrox.
Revealing he is in regular contact with the scouting team at Ibrox, he’s hoping to utilise global contacts to help find the Rangers stars of the future.
As quoted by The Herald, Moore said:
I speak with Bomber frequently. It is fantastic to be able to stay connected with him and hear how things are progressing.
Think about the number of players who have come through at Rangers over the years. They have had players from all over the world. They have got a wonderful opportunity there. You just have to look at where they are based, what they can see.
I know what it takes to be successful at the club, what type of character is needed. Success is important now because history is on the line in the next couple of years. They want people to come in and do a job now.
Moore has set up a football consultancy firm with his former agent John Viola, with the duo creating formal links in Ghana to help young prospects there find success overseas.
Whether this is something that proves fruitful for the Gers remains to be seen, but it’s pleasing to hear he is in touch with members of Mark Allen’s recruitment team.
Rangers have shown a willingness to tap into previously unused markets recently and countries like Ghana could be a worth a look when it comes to bringing in players with potential.
