Traynor departs director of communications post at Rangers FC

THE former Daily Record sportswriter, James Traynor, has left his director of communications post at football club, Rangers.

Says the Rangers website: “Rangers today announce that director of communications, James Traynor, has left the club.”

He was appointed to the role in December.

Reports STV: “A spokesman for the Rangers board told STV: ‘The directors at Rangers are looking at a range of cost-cutting measures. It’s fair to say James Traynor’s departure is part of that.’

“The former associate editor of the Daily Record and presenter of BBC Radio Scotland’s Your Call had been a controversial appointment in December 2012.”

When he left the Record, he signed off with an attack on fellow journalists and online commentators.
