FORMER Rangers boss Stuart McCall has signed a new deal with Bradford City.

The Ibrox legend is in his third spell in charge of the Bantams and is closing in on 250 matches in the dugout for the club he also represented as a player. 

McCall and assistant Kenny Black have now agreed one-year extensions to their contracts to remain at the Utilita Energy Stadium until at least the end of the 2021/22 campaign. 

McCall said: “I am naturally pleased. When I first came back last season it was always a long-term vision I had laid out, and I am really looking forward to further building the project. 

“Nobody is happy with where we currently are in the league table, and the determination and drive comes from trying to rectify that. 

“To have the backing and longevity is encouraging, because it gives us time to look at things and plan on changing the fortunes of the club. 

“I have the hunger and desire to be here for a long time and get this club turned around. That is my ambition and aim. 

“We have an opportunity to get out of the difficult position in which we are currently, in the short term, but also kick on over the long term. 

“Ryan (Sparks) has been here nearly three years and has stood up to the plate. He, like all of us, has Bradford City in his best interests - and I have a strong relationship with him. 

“It is not about what has gone by, or what is in the past. It is about having a core belief about what we are trying to now achieve, and what lies ahead.”
