Clive Tyldesley will be pro­vid­ing com­men­tary for Rangers TV this sea­son.

The com­men­ta­tor hit the head­lines when he was re­moved as ITV’s lead voice last month, declar­ing in a video on Twit­ter that he was “up­set, an­noyed and baf­fled”.

Tyldesley was de­moted be­hind Sam Mat­ter­face who has taken over the main role. With Scot­tish foot­ball be­ing played be­hind closed doors due to Covid re­stric­tions, the 65-yearold will com­men­tate on Rangers’ first home Pre­mier­ship match of the cam­paign against St Mir­ren on

Sun­day, al­though he will share du­ties with Tom Miller over the sea­son.

For­mer Rangers play­ers Neil McCann and Alex Rae will pro­vide anal­y­sis along with Scot­land women’s team coach Shel­ley Kerr, with ex-man­agers Graeme Souness and Wal­ter Smith mak­ing con­tri­bu­tions.

De­fender Nikola Katic will be a Rangers TV reg­u­lar as he con­tin­ues his re­cov­ery from in­jury.

Di­rec­tor of com­mer­cial and mar­ket­ing James Bis­grove told the club’s of­fi­cial web­site: “We’re in­cred­i­bly ex­cited to wel­come some of the great­est names in the club’s his­tory, along­side the high­est cal­i­bre of broad­cast pro­fes­sion­als, to our new-look Rangers TV team.
