Rangers

Rangers cult hero Clint Hill has admitted he would “run up” to Glasgow if he was offered a coaching role at Ibrox as he winds down his playing career with Carlisle United.

The former QPR and Rangers defender became a huge favourite with the Ibrox support during his season-long stint at Ibrox with a number of Gers fans even regularly attending Carlisle games to cheer him on.

The veteran defender is in the late stages of his career and admitted he would love a chance to cut his teeth coaching at Rangers when he does hang his boots up.

“I’d run up that motorway,” Hill told the club’s official podcast when asked how he would react if an offer came from Ibrox.

“Listen there are loads of ifs and buts, but if there was even an opportunity to come up and coach or represent the club in any capacity then I’d jump at it.”

Hill made 31 appearances and scored six times in his sole season at IBbrox before being the first casualty of Pedro Caixinha’s summer clear-out at the end of the season.

The 39-year-old scored the equaliser in the 1-1 Old Firm draw at Celtic Park in March which will have undoubtedly endeared him to the Ibrox support.

After leaving Ibrox over the summer, Hill spent time on trial with previous club QPR before signing a short-term deal at Carlisle which was quickly extended by United boss Keith Curle.
