New signing for Rangers as 26-yo comes in from Royal Antwerp

New signing for Rangers as 26-yo comes in from Royal Antwerp

Rangers have made a surprise new signing as Director of Football Recruitment Nils Koppen, once of PSV, and our manager Philippe Clement, once of many Belgian clubs to say the least, secure a new international lead scout in Anthony Galinski, recently of Antwerp.

The 26-year-old becomes Rangers’ chief boss for overseas scouting, having overseen Royal Antwerp’s international scouting for the past two years, and already he’s putting his new position into gear with speculation suddenly appearing over Standard Liege stopper Arnaud Bodart.

But we’ll get to new signings later.

Galinski has enjoyed a pretty big rise in football – at just 26 he’s already Rangers’ lead international scout, meaning he oversees overseas (see what we did there) operations regarding the recruitment and earmarking over players in other countries, particular youth ones.

It’s an important role, and it points to the expansion and seriousness of Rangers’ scouting and recruitment overhaul, which simply put was nowhere near good enough before.

With the Trading Model a subject of debate for some time, this is the kind of recruitment in the staffing areas that will aid the new policy and improve Rangers’ signing and selling of players.

We’ve got to make more profit and build a stronger Academy and senior squad, and Galinski is part of making that happen.

That now means Director of Football Recruitment and Lead International Scout are two new positions in the past 4+ months and both are seeing talent from the continent, in Koppen and now Galinski.

Time will tell how effective these appointments are going to be, but the club is definitely doing the right things to make improvements.

Let’s hope they bear the correct fruit.
