Rangers scout John Park has departed the club amid the continued shakeup in the Ibrox football department.

The 65-year-old originally joined under then-director of football Ross Wilson near the end of Giovanni van Bronckhorst's time in charge.

He remained in situ throughout Michael Beale's tenure but has now departed after 18 months as Rangers continue to redevelop elements of their backroom staff.

Nils Koppen joined as the new director of football last week after fellow Belgian  Zurab Almirian was already appointed head of the academy.

It is understood that Koppen joining the Ibrox side led to Park having a rethink over his role.

He has previously worked as a talent spotter at Celtic, Motherwell, Hibernian, Dundee United, Blackburn Rovers, Vancover Whitecaps, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Legia Warsaw.

Meanwhile, Philippe Clement has revealed that Rangers forward Danilo may require surgery after a knee injury sustained against St Mirren.

The Brazilian has not long returned to action after suffering a fractured cheekbone earlier in the season.

And Clement confirmed that the forward could have to go under the knife once again.

He said: "Danilo will also be out, a problem with his knee after a tackle during the game. There may be a chance of surgery.

"Our focus is now on the guys who are fit for big matches coming up in the next few weeks. We are creating chances, and keeping clean sheets.

"The team is taking big steps. A lot of work from everyone. The team is in a good way to improve and become better.

"It's now on others to show they are ready. Kemar (Roofe) is coming back from an injury also so we need to take that into account and just throw him back into the pitch. Scott Wright and Ryan Jack will also miss out tomorrow."
