the only other position the club are taking interviews for are a DoF, unless you mean he won't get the job.

No you're misunderstanding he was interviewed the same time as the rest - they had 3/4 candidates 

he's only confirming he was interviewed

Rangers director of football candidate Paul Mitchell leaves Tottenham

BYRECORD SPORT ONLINE


The former defender was being forced to serve a notice period at White Hart Lane after handing in his resignation but has been allowed to leave the club.

Rangers target Paul Mitchell has left his job as head of recruitment at Tottenham Hotspur.

Mitchell was one of a number of names on a list of targets to take over as director of football under a new structure at Rangers with the club looking to go down a different route after the exit of Mark Warburton, David Weir and Frank McParland.

The 35-year-old had been being forced to serve a 16-month notice period after handing in his resignation due to differences with owner Daniel Levy, but Mitchell has been allowed to leave the club which could allow him to move to Rangers as director of football.

Mitchell has an impressive CV having also held high-profile roles at MK Dons and Southampton.

It was his work at Southampton that earned him a move to Tottenham when Mauricio Pochettino also made the move from St Mary's to White Hart Lane and wanted his chief talent spotter to join him.

Rangers could now turn to Mitchell, with a move for Southampton's Ross Wilson appearing to have fallen through.

Mitchell started his behind the scenes career at MK Dons after retiring as a player, and former Dons boss Karl Robinson insisted he would be great for Rangers.

Speaking to MailSport he said: “If Rangers go for Paul, he’d be a terrific appointment. If you look at the clubs he’s been at, MK Dons, Southampton and Spurs, he’s always had amazing success.

“He’s been able to capture players for those clubs who have gone on to be really successful.

“And Paul’s a top fella as well. He started working for me at MK Dons many years ago and he’s gone on to do really well.

“He’s been very successful wherever he’s been and that’s why he’s so highly regarded within the game now.

“That’s testament to the man himself and he deserves real credit.

“He’s so driven as a person. But more importantly, he’s not driven by money.

“That means that when he’s doing a deal, the player in question has to want to play for the club or it won’t happen.

“Paul’s very clear and precise in his message. He managed to bring players like Patrick Bamford to MK Dons, who was a big part of what we achieved during that period of time.

“But it wasn’t just about the players Paul brought in for us.

“It’s about what he set up behind the scenes for MK Dons to carry on as a club.

“He was then involved in the Southampton set-up and look at the players they’ve brought in over the last few years.

“I believe he was an integral part in getting the likes of Sadio Mane and Dusan Tadic to that club and everyone knows how successful they’ve been. He obviously helped get Dele Alli over to Spurs as well after seeing him as a kid at MK Dons.

“Regardless of what anyone says, Glasgow Rangers are still one of the biggest clubs in the world. They’re an institution.

“Glasgow is a great city as well so it’s a job that people like Paul might see as one of the best challenges in British football.

"For anyone going into a football club, they want a blank canvas.

“Because it gives you an opportunity to put your stamp on it.

“Rangers have done wonderfully well in the last two years to get to where they are today.

“From the outside looking in, they’ve got another step to go before the club becomes really successful again. And getting someone like Paul Mitchell in would be a real statement of intent from the club."

EDIT: I was probably not very polite to GEC in the thread he started about the game on Sunday. :happy:
