Rangers announced on Sunday night that Smith and retired Glasgow businessman Ian Hart had accepted the role of non-executive directors.

The move is a huge coup for chief executive Charles Green, who has been trying to bring Smith on board since the former Scotland manager launched a takeover bid hours after Green's Sevco Scotland company initially took control at Ibrox in June.
