Ian Durrant is set to leave his position as Rangers Under-20s manager, according to a report.
The Daily Record has claimed that first-team boss Mark Warburton wants to reshuffle the backroom staff and appoint his own man in charge of the youth squad.
The Rangers youth side had a poor season, finishing 13th in the SPFL Development League and suffering 17 losses from 32 games.
The Under-20 side will be taking part in next season’s Challenge Cup, which has recently announced an expansion to the format with all Scottish Premier League teams being represented.
Durrant joined Rangers back in 1984 where he enjoyed 14 playing years at the club, making 249 appearances before moving on to Kilmarnock.
He had a spell at Everton and rejoined Rangers in 2005 in a coaching capacity, when he became coach of the Under-19s side.
Durrant managed one game for the senior side as he became the temporary boss after the resignation of Paul Le Guen. He was then kept on in the coaching staff when Walter Smith and Ally McCoist took charge of the side.
Durrant became manager of the under-20 side when McCoist left the club. However his 25 year association at the club is now coming towards it’s end.
In the latest Rangers news, one of the club’s new summer signings has revealed what Warburton said to make him join.
