Nicholl Will Be Assistant To Murty
Written by RockSport on December 30, 2017
As predicted on ROCK SPORT’S TALKING FOOTBALL SHOW Jimmy Nicholl will be the new assistant manager of Rangers.
The former Ibrox player, currently number two with Falkirk, will leave his job at the Championship club after Tuesday’s game against Dunfermline.
Northern Irishman Nicholl, 61, had an earlier period coaching at Rangers, taking the reserve team under Graeme Souness in the 1980s.
Now he will assist Graeme Murty, who has been assured he will be in charge of Rangers until the end of the season.
Nicholl, who also had a spell as a player at Manchester United and managed Raith Rovers to a Scottish League Cup win in 1994, will also continue to work with Northern Ireland, having assisted their manager Michael O’Neill since 2015.
