Chaos for Clement as media partner reveals unlikely windfall

Chris Jack was quickly on-message, spinning the good news about a football club losing their CEO after a year in the job.

Over the last two months Phil Clement has been building up expectations that there is going to be a big turnover of players at Ibrox, his Revolution hitting top gear after a promising start taking over from Micky Beale.

Unfortunately for the former Monaco boss that will require clubs to be interested in signing serial losers and his CEO coming up with a budget to bring in quality signings.

James Bisgrove, the marketing whizz kid that brought Sportemongo and Tom Ket tyres to the Castore kit, was key to delivering the transfer policy but it seems that he has been distracted in recent months chasing a bigger salary.

Saudi club Al Qadsiah have come up with the deal that Bisgrove was looking for leaving Clement having to justify his transfer requirements to Chairman John Bennett.

Bisgrove signed off by failing to sign Jose Cordoba from Levski Sofia with no announcements made on the future of out of contract stars such as John Lundstram, Borna Barisic, Kemar Roofe and Ryan Jack.

In most circumstances it would be reported as a recipe for chaos but the man from the Rangers Review is guaranteed to find a positive out of any bad news coming from Ibrox:

Rangers will demand a six-figure compensation package for chief executive James Bisgrove after he accepted a big-money move to Saudi Arabia.

The Ibrox board confirmed the departure of Bisgrove in a statement on Thursday evening as John Bennett assumed the role of executive chairman to oversee the transfer window and the transition into another new era in the corridors of power.

Bisgrove informed the Ibrox hierarchy of his decision to leave in recent days and the Rangers Review can reveal discussions over a financial deal are ongoing. It is understood that Rangers will seek a six-figure sum for Bisgrove to make the move to the Middle East as soon as possible.

Bennett and his board are committed to ensuring Rangers press ahead with their plans for the summer window as they prepare to back Philippe Clement’s blueprint in the coming weeks. The Rangers Review understands the board are in no rush to appoint a successor and will consider their options in due course as Bennett and the remaining executives continue their work behind the scenes.

Celtic365 understands that following the end of season collapse from Clement and his side that there are doubts about the brilliance of A Proper Football Manager inside the Blue Room.

Bringing in a new CEO to carry the can for the upcoming transfer window would be near impossible which explains why Chairman Bennett will be taking on Bisgrove’s remit.

Being forced to live within their means to comply with UEFA Sustainability rules is providing a tough challenge for the Ibrox Tribute Act but with the backing of their media partners they can keep most bears onside.

Recently Clement has said that the squad has come to the end of its cycle and that the problems to be tackled are bigger than he had anticipated when he took over as manager in October.

Ten months ago the Rangers Review broke the news of the Malik Tillman pay-out after the midfielder refused to make his move from Bayern Munich permanent, additionally Bayern were to pay out a slice of any fee that they received for Tillman.
