Ian Durrant is to end his long association with Rangers as part of a coaching reshuffle.

He spent last season in charge of the Under-20 development squad, but will not return for the start of pre-season training.

Rangers manager Mark Warburton wants to alter the coaching personnel, leaving Durrant without a position at Ibrox.

He spent 14 years as a player at Rangers, before returning as a coach in 2005.

Durrant held several positions in the youth set-up, then stepped up to work with the first team during Walter Smith's second spell as manager in 2007.

He was first-team coach when Ally McCoist succeeded Smith in 2011, then returned to working with the youths again after McCoist resigned during season 2014-15.
