Smith set to reject future football role at Rangers

Walter Smith will not remain at Ibrox as director of football under a new Rangers owner.

Reports emerged that Scottish tycoon Craig Whyte, who has reached an agreement “in principle” to buy the Govan club from Sir David Murray, would offer Smith such a role or invite him on to the board when he steps down as boss at the end of the season.

The former Scotland boss is in Turkey for Rangers' final Champions League Group C game against Bursaspor tonight.

“It certainly wouldn't be in any sort of footballing position,” he said. “I wouldn't do that. Whatever opportunities come my way, we'll just have to wait and see. I will wait until the end of the season. I finish at the end of the season so that's where we are at the present moment.”
