Rangers look like going into the January transfer window with Graeme Murty still being in charge which means the Gers will leave director of football Mark Allen in charge of the club’s recruitment.
The lack of a permanent boss puts far more emphasis on the work done by Allen and his recruitment team as the Gers look to win their first major trophy since 2011.
The former Man City youth guru will have to make sure he gets it absolutely spot on after Rangers’ summer rebuild saw a huge turnover of players already this season.
Despite the transfer window not opening until January 1st, a quirk of Scottish clubs’ penny-pinching sees contracts typically come to an end on May 31st instead of June 30th like most other countries.
This means that players in Scotland can negotiate a move away under freedom of contract as of December 1st.
With a host of talented Scottish Premiership stars out of contract in the summer, Allen should be looking to see who could improve the Ibrox squad and save the Ibrox giants transfer fee while they are at it.
