Walter Smith has been confirmed as a new director at Rangers.

The former Ibrox manager has accepted a non-executive directors role, along with Ian Hart, to join the board of chairman Charles Green.

Smith admitted it was a thrill to be back involved with ‘Gers and is looking forward to helping the once-great club get back on their feet after falling into liquidation in the summer.

"It is a great privilege to serve the club that means so much to me in the capacity of non-executive director,” he said.

"Serious constructive efforts are being made to rebuild Rangers after a very difficult period in the Club's history and if I can play a part helping that process, I am willing to do so.

"Apart from being a former manager of the club, I am first and foremost a supporter and am no different from the many thousands of other Rangers fans who have shown they're willing to do what they can to ensure Rangers rises again.

"I must make it clear, however, that I will not be playing any role in the day-to-day running of the club or the team. It's the manager's job to run the team and the chief executive's job to run the club's affairs.

"The role I will fulfil is to bring my experience of Rangers and football in general to the board table and that is what I will do.

"The people who purchased the Club have shown over the last few months they are serious in their intentions to rebuild Rangers and I am happy, as many other fans have done, to lend my support."
