Rangers caretaker manager Kenny McDowall resigns



Rangers caretaker manager Kenny McDowall handed in his resignation on Monday night, just three days short of being a month into the role.

The 51-year-old took over from Ally McCoist as manager on the 21st December, after the former Rangers striker was placed on gardening leave following his own resignation.

McDowall cited personal reasons for tendering his resignation, but in a club statement he will serve out his 12-month notice period.

The statement read: “Kenny McDowall has tendered his resignation as caretaker manager of Rangers Football Club, citing personal reasons for stepping down.

“Kenny, who has been a fantastic servant of the club, will serve his 12-month notice period, during which time he will remain 100% committed to his normal duties.

“The club respects Kenny’s decision and he will continue to have the full support of everybody at Rangers.”

McDowall’s time in charge opened up with a 4-0 defeat away to Hibernian, wins against Dumbarton and Alloa followed before Friday’s game against Championship leaders Hearts was called off.

The Ibrox side are away from home on Saturday facing Cowdenbeath before travelling to Hampden Park on the 1st February to face Celtic in the semi final of the Scottish League Cup.
