Rangers director of football Mark Allen may not have the easiest job in the game, but his actions in the last six weeks show that he is doing a fine job.
Firstly, he helped to bring in a host of signings in the January transfer window, that were a world away from the players signed Pedro Caixinha in the summer.
The likes of Jamie Murphy, Greg Docherty, and Jason Cummings know the Scottish game inside out and already look to be excellent signings, especially Cummings.
He also added two good signings from the English Championship, with Sean Goss arriving from QPR and the experienced Scottish international centre-back Russell Martin arriving from Norwich. Both players already look live valuable additions to the side.
Now reports, from the Daily Record for example, have emerged that James Tavernier is set to sign a new contract at Ibrox.
This is massive news for fans, as it means that the Gers are set to keep hold of a valuable player for the first time in a long while, they won’t be selling him at the first possible opportunity.
The next huge test for Gers chief Allen may well come in the summer, and if he is tasked with selecting a new Rangers manager, but for the moment he is doing a great job.
In other Rangers news, the new contract for Tavernier shows that Rangers mean business
