Chester's association with the Scottish Premier League champions goes back more than 20 years, having arrived at Ibrox in a dual coach/scout role back in 1987 after a brief spell with Oldham Athletic.

In 2004 he left Glasgow to join fellow SPL side Livingston, but was only there for six months before joining Fulham to help reconstruct their scouting department.

However, in May 2007, Chester returned to Glasgow with Walter Smith where he has been responsible for their extensive network of scouts around Europe.
