Former Limerick FC manager Stuart Taylor tipped to swap Rangers for Stoke City
FORMER Limerick FC manager Stuart Taylor is swapping Glasgow Rangers for Stoke just a week after joining the Scottish Premiership side’s youth coaching set-up.
New Stoke City manager Paul Lambert is adding former Limerick boss Taylor to his backroom staff as his assistant manager.
Former Airdrieonians and St Mirren midfielder Taylor was wanted by Lambert to be his number two at Stoke after working with the former Celtic midfielder at Wolves.
Taylor only joined Rangers as part of a youth academy shake-up last week, with former Ibrox duo Gregory Vignal and Kevin Thomson also taking roles within the club.
Taylor’s contract at Rangers was only due to run until this summer.
Paul Lambert confirms Stuart Taylor will be joining him at the club as Assistant Manager. He also says he will speak to coach Eddie Niedzweicki again today about his future at the club. #SCFC— BBC Radio Stoke (@BBCRadioStoke) January 16, 2018
Taylor was appointed Limerick FC manager in January 2013 and remained in charge of the Blues for 18 months until July 2014.
The former Blues boss eventually went on to Aston Villa where he was under-23 coach and then coach at Wolves under Lambert.
Lambert took over as manager of Premier League strugglers Stoke in recent days following the sacking of Mark Hughes.
