Former manager Walter Smith has been appointed as non-executive chairman of Rangers FC.

Former manager Walter Smith has been appointed as non-executive chairman of Rangers FC.

The 10-time Scottish league title winner has replaced Malcolm Murray in the Ibrox seat after serving as a non-executive director since November.

Smith was thrilled to step into the role as he seeks to return the Glasgow giants to their former glories.

"Rangers should always be at the pinnacle of the game and the fans deserve nothing less," Smith said.

"Although I have been on the board for some months this will be another departure for me but there are enough directors around to make sure we will make the kind of progress necessary and which our fans want.

"Unity among the directors is vital. We must all be on the same page as often as possible. We won't always agree but Rangers, this club and our fans must always come first.

"It is a great honour to be asked to take up this position and it goes without saying that I feel proud as well as humble. However, no one should believe that I see my role as a passive one.

"That hasn't been my way in the past and it won't be my way in the future."
