Rangers supporters are delighted by the appointment of James Bisgrove as Director of Commercial & Marketing at the club.
The club announced the news this morning, telling fans that after a rigorous recruitment process the experienced marketing professional will be joining the project at Ibrox.
Bisgrove will join Rangers in June from his current position as Head of Sponsor Partnership Management at TEAM Marketing AG, the exclusive marketing agency for UEFA Club Competitions.
As quoted by the official website, Managing Director Stewart Robertson said of the appointment: “We look forward to welcoming James to the team as our new Director of Commercial and Marketing. He has a wealth of experience in building and maintaining commercial partnerships within football, which will help us to maximise revenues next season and beyond.”
Plenty of fans feel it’s an appointment which is long overdue and they’re looking forward to the club being more bold and effective with promotion moving forward.
Ideally revenue will increase and we will see our club brand increase in prestige and stature. Excellent work off the pitch could unlock doors that allows us to maximise talent on the pitch.
These supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…

We definitely needed this role at the club to shape our brand strategy and increase our revenue. With respect, this is a big step up for James who appears to have largely only experienced sponsorship in his relatively short career. Good luck to him, we need it to be a success.

Good timing James. Emirates are introducing the A380 onto the Glasgow-Dubai route in April so they will want to up their profile even more in the Central belt. No better way than to partner with the most successful club in the world. ????⚪️????
