Matchday 1 - Gary Gibson, Head of Soccer Academies and International Relations Rangers FC
Play • 34 min

In our first episode we talk to Gary Gibson of Rangers FC.  He explains why the Scottish champions have invested so heavily in their international programs, the importance of outreach and what can be learned from working with clubs abroad.
He talks about the US, how it is the next great frontier for a new generation of players and explains his club's partnership with Orange County Soccer Club.
Gary also tells his own story of playing with a variety of different Scottish clubs and then coaching with them too before moving to the club he supports and what he learned from that experience.
He talks about the importance of Rangers' world record 55th domestic title, how much a player can learn going out on loan (especially abroad) and how they are hoping to make the most of a pathway for the top players from the US that takes them straight to Rangers and not via the traditional method of going through college first.
