Mick Beale is delighted to be back at Rangers after leaving QPR to join the Scottish side.
Beale was appointed in the summer by the R’s and reportedly rejected a move to Wolves last month.
But he has decided to move back to the club he was assistant manager at under Steven Gerrard until November 2021.
The 42-year-old has signed a four-year deal at Ibrox.
Beale said: “It is fantastic to be back and to see everybody this morning, there are some new faces but some people that I know really well so it is great to see everyone.
“I am hugely proud. It is a wonderful, wonderful football club, it is an institution. For everyone that works here it is a huge privilege, but to be the manager of this football club, that is extremely special. Some wonderful people have sat in this chair prior to me, and I am hugely proud to be the person sat here now.”
Ranger chairman, Douglas Park commented: “I am delighted to welcome Michael as our new manager as we aim to strengthen our on-field performance.
“Michael is a very exciting appointment for us, and his energy and ambition stood out both when he was here previously, and in the discussions we have had prior to him re-joining.
“The board will support both Michael and Ross Wilson to make this appointment a success, and I wish him the very best going forward.”
Sporting director Ross Wilson added: “I am pleased to welcome Michael back to Rangers today. I know how excited he is about everything that comes with the prestige of being Rangers manager.
“Equally our players and staff at both the training ground and at Ibrox are looking forward to working with Michael. He has a clear plan and will get to work with the group straight away along with the technical and support staff.
“Finally, this is a coveted managerial position and after an intense week of discussions, I wish to extend our sincere thanks to all of the excellent managers who we met to discuss the role.“
