RANGERS have started building for the new season by signing Mr Fixit as their new Performance Prediction Director.
Mr Fixit is the second Daily Record journalist to be snapped up by owner Charles Green after the arrival of media boss James Traynor.
The Ibrox side targeted Mr Fixit after being impressed by his assessment of the club's games every week in his Saturday Record column. So far he's correctly predicted the result of all of their games except one.
Traynor employed Mr Fixit on the Record sports desk and will allow him to continue to write his popular columns for the paper.
Last night Traynor said: “Every week Mr Fixit has been getting it right with his predictions on Rangers games. Ally McCoist has taken note and he asked if we could being him board.
“It might look to some people as a gamble but it's an innovative move. If he thinks we're going to lose a game he can now tell us why and we can take steps to address that in advance. Once we make the alterations we'll ask him again for his assessment.”
Rangers are planning huge personnel changes after sealing the Third Division title and Mr Fixit hopes to play his part on the training pitch too.
The tipster said: “Not only will I be predicting the result of each match beforehand, I've been asked to introduce some games of chance to training in order to spice up things.
“I'm a qualified SFA coach and one of my favourite training excercises is a penalty shoot-out. If you miss you don't play the next game. This adds pressure and allows players to experience what a genuine shoot-out is really like.
“At half-time the 11 starters will have a game of poker in the dressing room. First out of the game will be subbed. This introduces a fun element and will keep players' minds sharp during the interval.
“Ally's asked me about diet because his players have looked tired towards the end of games. For me you don't get enough energy from health food and from now on players will be advised to eat two Killie pies before every game.”
Mr Fixit will start at Ibrox on July 1 and this site will run as normal until then.
But we're looking or a replacement for Mr Fixit and anyone interested should email admin secretary April Fuller at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 11 with full details.
