Rangers Boss Philippe Clement Vows Rebuild After Title Bid Fails

Rangers manager Philippe Clement has admitted the club needs a significant rebuild.

In his first comments since their title hopes ended, Clement revealed “honest” discussions with the Ibrox board. “We had really good talks about what to change towards recruitment and we are aligned,” he said. “We have plans and we now need to execute them.”

Clement acknowledged the need for improvement: “There will be changes, we need changes. I think we are at the end of a cycle as a club, we need to change something.”

Looking forward, the Belgian boss emphasized physicality: “We are going into a pre-season that needs to be hard… We need to build physical to be able to play at a high intensity three times a week and avoid so many injuries.”

While expressing disappointment, Clement remains focused on the future: “We could not close the gap enough, we need to leave that behind us and look at how to make us better moving forward which we are very busy with.”

Rangers face Hearts in their final league match before the Scottish Cup final. Clement is determined to end the season on a high: “I want to end this cycle with a really big moment next Saturday at Hampden.”
