RANGERS have today launched their Rangers Online Academy initiative.

The Ibrox club has introduced the subscription-based online coaching resource to help out coaches and other teams around the world with a wealth of training content.

The service provides exclusive footage of coaching sessions with the Rangers Academy’s top coaches and provides observers with unprecedented access to the club’s methodology on youth development.

The Online Academy has already been used extensively by Rangers’ Official Partner clubs Bengaluru FC in India and Orange County Soccer Club in the United States and is now available to clubs at all levels across the globe.

Gary Gibson, Head of Soccer Academies & International Relations, said: “We are delighted to be able to go live with the Rangers Online Academy which is another innovative move from Rangers and for the first-time ever, we have one resource for best-practice in coach education.

“I would like to thank all the staff involved across the club who have been involved in this exciting new development and we’re really excited to be able to share it with coaches and teams of all levels.

“Our Soccer Academy programme already has a range of domestic and international partner clubs and we believe this is the perfect accompaniment to help them, and individual coaches, to take their football education to the next level.”

Those who would like to join the platform are urged to send their name and contact number to soccerschools@rangers.co.uk.
