Rangers have recruited the scout regarded as the man who provided the amunition for Alex Ferguson's rise to fame at Aberdeen.

George Adams, who held similar posts with the Dons and Celtic, has been appointed Rangers' new head of youth development.

The veteran resigned from the board at Scottish Premier League rivals Motherwell to succeed Jan Derks in the post.

Rangers chairman John McClelland said: "I am delighted with this new appointment.

"George Adams has a proven track record and will be an extremely valuable asset in our continued policy of developing young Scottish talent through our youth programme at Murray Park and our wider network throughout Scotland and beyond.

"George is widely considered to be one of the best talent-finders in the country and played a key role in the success Alex Ferguson enjoyed at Aberdeen in the 1980s, bringing through a string of top-class players."
