This is a list of Rangers Football Club's managers and all those who have held the position of manager of the first team of Rangers, in its various guises, since their formation in 1872.

Each manager's entry includes his dates of tenure and the club's overall competitive record (in terms of first team matches won, drawn and lost), honours won and significant achievements while under his care. As of the start of the 2015–16 season, Rangers have had 15 full-time managers and five caretakers.

The most successful person to manage Rangers and longest-serving manager is Bill Struth, who won eighteen Scottish League Championships, ten Scottish Cups, two League Cups, seven war-time league championships, nineteen Glasgow Cups, seventeen Glasgow Merchant Charity Cup's, as well as a host of other honours.

The club has, on average, appointed a new manager every seven and a half years. The club's directors have only ever dismissed two of their managers, namely David White and Jock Wallace (during his second spell). The others have left through of their own accord or by mutual agreement, except for William Wilton, who died whilst still manager of the side.

Information correct as of matches played October 2015 . Only competitive matches are included.
