View: Former Rangers player appears open to joining Beale at Ibrox with major social media hint

Kevin Thomson appears to have thrown his name into the mix to work as part of Michael Beale’s backroom staff at Rangers.

Beale was announced Gers manager earlier this week and brought in a few of his coaches with him to Ibrox.

However, he did confirm that there were others who could be joining within the coming weeks and Thomsson has been one of the names linked with a return.

Amid all the speculation, Thomson posted a picture of him being a coach on the field and was spotted in the Rangers kit.

This could be a massive coincidence or it could be the fact that he’s actually keen on returning to the Ibrox.

Discussing this, Gordon Dalziel said on Clyde 1’s Superscoreboard, “If Kevin Thomson may be the guy because of the connection before, but you can’t just go right we want a manager, but we are going to throw in a few Rangers guys because of the club.”

The Daily Record even reported that the duo were friends and stayed in touch after Beale left Ibrox to join Aston Villa.

Beale even considered bringing him to QPR once he became the number one at Loftus Road and may decide to turn to him once again as part of his backroom overhaul.

It would be good to see Thomson coming back as he knows the culture of the club and the players would also welcome him back with open arms.

Official club partner reacts immediately to Rangers change Michael Beale has implemented

Michael Beale has already made changes to what will be happening at Rangers and official club partner Heart and Hand podcast are big fans.

Beale was appointed as the new manager at Ibrox on a three-and-a-half year deal, joining from Queens Park Rangers just over a year after leaving the club as Steven Gerrard’s assistant to go to Aston Villa.

But as manager during his official unveiling press conference with the club (1 December), Beale revealed one change that he is already going to implementing with the club.

“Looking forward to wearing my suit in the dugout,” he said. “The players will also go back to wearing suits for home matches. This is a traditional club and I am very proud to be back here.”

That led to a response from official club partner Heart & Hand podcast on their official Twitter account, and they admitted they were happy about the change.

“Little thing… but I like it a lot,” they wrote.


It’s the little things that matter sometimes, and this is one of those changes that will make a big difference with the standards at the club and in the changing room.

Rangers are a massive football club, and by setting the bar high initially it means that if they ever do fall they’re still above everyone else.


Wearing a suit won’t matter much on the pitch, obviously, but it’s about holding each other accountable everywhere and that makes doing your job on the pitch easier when it comes to carrying out the manager’s instructions.

Beale wants to play attacking, possession-based football which is exactly what fans want to see and hear, so fingers crossed he can hit the ground running on the pitch in a similar way to how he has hit the right notes off the pitch with his words so far.

This is a huge opportunity for him, and if he can take it then number 56 won’t be too far behind.

Michael Beale could eye Liverpool staff again as Rangers start to poach – report

Michael Beale has appointed Liverpool’s Dr Jack Ade as his Head of Performance at Rangers and may look to poach further staff from the Premier League giants, according to This is Anfield.

Ade will join the likes of Damian Matthew, Neil Banfield and Harry Watling in the Ibrox dugout, as the 42-year-old sets to work with Rangers following his move from QPR last week.

Dr Ade has held the role of head of elite fitness development and Under-21s fitness coach at Anfield since 2016, becoming a key figure during Jurgen Klopp’s regime at the Merseyside club.


According to This Is Anfield, the Englishman might look to swoop in for further back-room appointments, with Liverpool proving his preferred source.

The report said: “There is a chance that Beale attempts to poach more personnel from the Liverpool academy staff, having built up strong relationships with colleagues during two spells at Kirkby.”


Changing of the guard

It comes as no surprise that Beale is poaching some of the most prestigious coaching talents from around the country.

The project he is undertaking at Rangers is an extremely exciting one, and coaches will be jumping at the opportunity to work with one of the brightest up-and-coming managers in the game.

The appointment of Dr Ade is one which was much needed, with Rangers looking leggy and laboured in several Scottish Premiership games this season.

The intensity that Liverpool have played at week in week out since Klopp’s arrival at the club should be a hugely promising sign for Gers fans – with many hoping this style of play can now become a staple of Ibrox life.

With Beale having just over a fortnight before his first Scottish Premiership match against Hibernian (15 December), he will look for Dr Ade and his other backroom staff to hit the ground running and get his players running through brick walls for the club.
