BREAKING; UEFA Pro Licence problem with Rangers’ new management team explained.

Only if Rangers choose to make Steven Davis their permanent manager will they have problems with their UEFA Pro Licence.

After the club confirmed yesterday that Michael Beale had been fired, the Ibrox hero has been appointed as interim manager at Ibrox.

The interim management group, which also includes former Rangers midfielder Alex Rae, current coach Steven Smith, coach Brian Gilmour, and goalkeeping coach Colin Stewart, will be led by Davis.

Following the confirmation of Davis’ temporary employment, questions arose surrounding the UEFA Pro License, the coaching credential required to lead a side in European competition or in any top-tier level.

It won’t be a problem for Davis to manage in the Europa League until Rangers want to appoint him permanently because the Pro Licence is only required for permanent managers (in charge for more than 12 weeks).

The Ibrox club issued a statement outlining the alterations ahead of Thursday night’s Europa League match against Aris Limassol in Cyprus.

“Rangers can confirm that Michael Beale, manager of the men’s first team, has left the organization,” it stated.

The Rangers board wishes to express its appreciation to Michael and his team for their work since joining the team in November.


“Results this season have fallen short of what Rangers supporters would have hoped for.

“As a result, it was decided today to sever the manager’s contract as well as that of Neil Banfield, Damian Matthew, Harry Watling, and Jack Ade.

The team’s interim manager will be Steven Davis, the organization is happy to announce.

Coach Brian Gilmour, goalkeeping coach Colin Stewart, and ex-Rangers player and current coach Steven Smith will make up the team, along with Alex Rae, who has a wealth of experience.

“I’d like to thank Michael for his dedicated work since he rejoined the club as manager last November,” stated Rangers chairman John Bennett.

It is evident that the outcomes fell far short of what the board, Michael, and our backers had hoped for.

“Searches are already underway to find a new management. I wish Steven Davis and the interim management team the best of luck. They will stay in charge until the ideal candidate is found.

Although former midfielder Davis’ contract with the team expired at the end of the previous campaign, the organization had been allowing him to utilize the facilities for his recovery after suffering a catastrophic knee injury.
