Moore linked with a return to Rangers

Brisbane Roar Football Operations Manager Craig Moore has tonight been linked with a return to Scottish club Rangers in a role similar to which he currently holds with the Roar.

A report in the Scottish Daily Mail suggests that Moore has emerged as a contender in the role, due to his solid reputation in building up Brisbane’s playing squad.

Moore is a speculative candidate for the role of Director of Football at the Glasgow based club, and could join Melbourne Victory manager Kevin Muscat at his former club. Muscat, who also played for Rangers, has been linked to the vacant managerial role following the dismissal of Mark Warburton.

John Aloisi’s first major appointment as Brisbane Roar manager was to bring Moore back into the clubs ranks after his departure in January 2010, with the duo working closely on ensuring the clubs playing roster was both strong and stable despite the ongoing financial dramas at the club.

Moore made 102 appearances for the club from 1999-2005, winning five Scottish Premier League and four Scottish FA Cups with the club.

Moore is not the only person linked with the role, including a couple of front office members of EPL clubs Southampton and Watford.

The report suggests that Rangers will take their time to consider their options for the role, which might also suggest the rumours of an immanent Kevin Muscat/Craig Moore duel appointment are wide of the mark.

Given how closely Moore and Aloisi have worked together here in Brisbane, it would be a big loss for both the Football Department and the club generally.

Im not sure there’s too much in this, however it’s one to perhaps keep an eye on over the coming weeks and months.
