Scottish Premiership club Rangers are understood to be preparing to move for recruitment chief Joe Savage from Sky Bet Championship club Norwich City according to the Daily Record.

The highly rated scout and match analyst is thought to be wanted by the Glasgow giants to fill the director of football vacancy which has been created by the Ibrox based club.

Savage was taken to current club Norwich City by former Canaries boss Alex Neil after the pair worked together during a successful spell at Hamilton Academical. Neil was recently sacked by The Canaries and replaced by young German coach Daniel Farke and it could well be that Savage will be permitted to return north of the border.

During his previous spell working in the Scottish game, Savage displayed a vast knowledge of European football and he worked to bring a number of bargain overseas players to Scotland. With Rangers having to work with a tight budget, Savage could be the perfect choice to oversee matters at Ibrox in a director of football role.

The Gers finished a whopping 39 points behind Scottish Premiership champions Celtic this season and the club must get their recruitment right over the summer if they are to have any chance of narrowing the gap in 2017/2018.
