Tottenham are set to appoint Rangers chief scout Andy Scoulding ahead of the new season, according to the Telegraph. 

Scoulding will link up with Spurs later this summer which will bring an end to his near five-year association with Rangers. 

The 40-year-old will help Spurs find new talent upon their return to the Champions League, although it has been noted he will not be joining the club’s recruitment team. 

According to Transfermarkt, Scoulding began his career at Fulham as a chief analyst in 2005 where held the role for five years before taking up a position at Liverpool. 

He acted as a technical coach for England between 2012 and 2016 before spending a season at Valencia and then taking up advisory roles with Salford and Olympiacos respectively. 

Scoulding then played a big part in Rangers’ rise back up the ladder, also helping to end the club’s 10-year wait for a Scottish Premiership title, which they achieved under Steven Gerrard. 

The Gers also embarked on a long European journey last term as they reached the Europa League final in Seville.

This seems to be a shrewd move from Tottenham as they are looking to add to their scouting team going forward. Scoulding has plenty of experience in the field and that should go a long way towards helping the club find good talent in the market.
