ONE of Rangers’ first team coaches has resigned, citing a lack of commitment from the players in a disappointing end to the season as the main reason for his departure.
Paul Geener came in to work with Craig Farrimond for the recent season after a number of successful years coaching at Waterhead.
He said; "We did well early on and won the Standard Cup and were going well but then some players stopped turning up to training. It was incredibly frustrating and I don't want to go through that again. There are some great lads at Rangers who I’ve loved working with and they know who they are. I was so proud to come to this club and it's disappointing the way it's worked out."
The Committee will meet early in November to discuss how this changes plans for next season. Craig Farrimond, who’s been a joint coach for the past three seasons, is keen to carry on.
Club Chairman Shane Wilson said; “I’m sorry to lose him. He definitely made and impact on the first team’s fortunes after joining us. I can sympathise with him being frustrated by a lack of commitment but lots of players have already committed to playing for us next year and he now won’t be here. But as a club we wish Paul all the best for the future.”
