Talks underway: Allen and Robertson in Rangers transfer discussions - confirmed
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has confirmed that he has been in talks with Mark Allen and Stewart Robinson ahead of the summer transfer window.
Murty may not even be in charge of the Light Blues by the start of next season with his deal due to end soon, however he is still taking an active role in preparations for the upcoming transfer window.
The Gers are expected to make a lot of changes with loan deals expiring and the continual effort to clear out the flops that Pedro Caixinha had introduced last year.
One of the main topics will no doubt be the future of Alfredo Morelos, who attracted bids from the Chinese Super League before penning a new long-term deal.
In his press conference on Friday, Murty announced that discussions are taking place with director of football Allen and managing director Robertson.
“I spoke to Mark Allen and Stewart Robertson yesterday about plans for the summer, we are continuing to put in place plans for next season,” he said, as quoted by Rangers’ official Twitter account.

Could this be a sign that Murty may get the job permanently in the summer? The ex-Under-20s boss has done a decent job at Ibrox. He has improved them slightly on from what Caixinha achieved and sparked talk of a title race when the gap to Celtic was closed down to nine points. However it’s all gone a bit off the rails a bit since then. Murty abandoned his successful diamond formation after improving the squad in January and is in a bit of a rut ahead of the Scottish Cup semi-final next week. Saturday’s game against Dundee is a must-win for the Gers because a negative result going into the Old Firm could be disastrous.
