Rangers are one of the biggest professional football clubs in the United Kingdom. The Gers are the most successful club in Scotland, having claimed 54 league titles. Many great head coaches have contributed immensely in making Rangers the team they are today.
Walter Smith was a centre-half in his playing career which began at Dundee United back in 1966. He stayed at the club until 1975 having played 108 matches.
He then had a short spell at Dumbarton before moving back to Dundee United in 1977. But, an injury shortly after returning ended his professional career.
Smith was appointed coach of the Scotland U18 team in 1978 and led his country to win the 1982 European Youth Championship.
Four years later, Smith became assistant manager under head coach Graeme Souness. When Graeme left in 1991, Smith was appointed caretaker manager which became permanent after Rangers clinched its fourth title in five years.
After a disappointing run of results, Smith left the club in 1997, but returned in 2007 where Walter led them to three League Cup trophies, two Scottish Cup, and three more League titles.
2) William Wilton
Wilton was the first head coach of Rangers and held the position from June 1899 until his death in 1920. He had been a player at the Gers since 1883 but worked his way up from secretary to the youth side to match secretary for the senior team.
Rangers had already enjoyed plenty of success including a 100 per cent record in the 1898/99 season. After Rangers became a limited company back in 1899, Wilton was appointed as boss. He went on to lead the club to eight league championships, a Scottish Cup, nine Glasgow Cups and seven Charity Cups.
1) Bill Struth
Considered as the best manager the club had and a big influence on Rangers. He was a head coach for over 34 years from 1920 until 1954.
And in that time claimed 18 league titles including five in a row (1927-1931). Bill ended a 25 year League Cup drought in 1928 and was also the first to win the treble back in 1949.
After WWII, Struth led the Gers to six more championships, Summer Cup, Victory Cup, Scottish War Emergency Cup, and four League Cups.
He also won a host of local competitions which include 19 Glasgow Cups. In total, Bill won 73 trophies, more than any other head coach in British history.
