Charlie Adam makes sly joke at Rangers in message to new appointment

Former Rangers star Charlie Adam has made a sly dig at the club in his message congratulating Kevin Thomson in being appointed as a new youth team coach.
The club confirmed via their official website that they had appointed former midfielder Thomson, who made 109 appearances during his four seasons at Ibrox, alongside fellow ex-Gers star Gregory Vignal as new coaches to work at the academy.
They follow in the footsteps of other former players to have made the move to join the coaching staff at the Light Blues, with the likes of Peter Lovenkrands and Andy Little already having returned to Ibrox in recent years.
Thomson took to his personal Twitter account to thank the fans for the messages of support and demonstrate his excitement at undertaking his new role, having already established his own coaching school following his retirement.
However, in congratulating the ex-midfielder, Charlie Adam, who turned out 88 times for the club, appeared to mock Rangers a little, suggesting that Thomson would have to look after his kit as they would not be giving him any more.
He wrote on his personal Twitter page: “All the best. Make sure jimmy B (Jimmy Bell, kit controller) gives you enough kit cause you won’t be getting anymore”

The Gers have suffered severe financial trouble in the past, while this is not the only issue over kit that has surrounded the club in recent days, Carlos Pena pictured seeming to wipe his nose on a pair of Rangers shorts.
