MICHAEL BEALE has revealed he will further add to his Rangers backroom team in the coming weeks.

The new Ibrox boss brought a trio of QPR coaches north with him as he was appointed the 18th permanent manager in the club's history.

Neil Banfield, Damian Matthew and Harry Watling all followed Beale to Glasgow from QPR.

But Beale is already plotting further additions to his backroom team after Giovanni van Bronckhorst and his support staff left the club.

"There will be more to come," Beale told Sky Sports.ย 

"There will be one or two more additions in the coming weeks which will be important as well in the support staff because a lot of staff left.

"There has been a lot of change in the club in the last two years with Steven and myself and Gary and that staff leaving after a hugely emotional period.

"And that has just happened again."

Beale's backroom team already boasts major experience from work at Chelsea, Arsenal and West Ham.

And the new Ibrox manager reckons that will bolster his ambition at Rangers and add some "grey hairs" after he was criticised over his managerial experience to date.

Beale has come under some scrutiny after being appointed just five months after his first role as a manager in his own right.

However, he defended his experience as he cited his previous stint working under Steven Gerrard and assisting in more than 200 games at Rangers.

On adding his own backroom team, Beale commented: "It's hugely important - they've all worked at big clubs as well.

"It's the grey hair that one or two maybe think I don't have.

"I have enough grey hair in this club after three-and-a-half years and 200 games, that's for sure."

It comes as Beale also insisted he would have a say in the ongoing contract talks with Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent.

The Ibrox duo are out of contract in the summer but negotiations have been ongoing.

Beale added:ย "I think that is ongoing (Kent and Morelos contract talks). Certainly, I will get to have an opinion on that but that's been ongoing."
