- Marc Bircham is set to return to Rangers to coach the youth team, which is good news in my view.
- It seems his appointment is about to be rubber-stamped and could be announced in the next 24 hours.
- I’m a great believer that clubs should, whenever possible, give former players who served them well the chance to cut their teeth in coaching.
- Whether they progress from there is down to the individual’s ability, but getting a foot in the door is important and I’m pleased QPR are looking to give Bircham that chance.
- He has had his differences with the Rangers hierarchy in the past, so both sides have had to mend fences. I'm pleased they have and hope Bircham does return.
- Bircham was often praised for his professionalism as a player - even before he joined Rangers from Millwall – and can be a good role model for young players.
- Now injury has brought his playing career to an end, it’s quite right that Rangers should give him an opportunity to stay in the game.
- Gary Waddock, Warren Neill, Gary Micklewhite and other former players have been given a similar chance in recent years, and Bircham deserves his.
- His passion for the club and down-to-earth personality will be an asset.
- Having said that, Rangers’ youth system is one of the areas the club urgently need to improve.
- That requires proper time and investment, not simply the appointment of a popular former player. BBC606
