Rangers FC named former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard as their new manager and ever since then the Gers fans have been gushing about the new revolution that has hit Ibrox.
And in all fairness, Gerrard has been trying his best in order to remodel the whole squad and he has already managed to bring in a couple of new signings and the buzz around Ibrox is that a few more players are slated to join in the coming months.
Now Rangers FC have jet-setted to Spain for their pre-season training camp which is expected to last 10 days. But as the Scottish outfit boarded the plane there were a couple of players who were nowhere to be seen.
The first big absentee was obviously Lee Wallace.
Wallace has been involved in an internal club dispute and rumours are that the former Rangers captain might be released by the club. Steven Gerrard though has claimed that if Wallace and the club can sort out the problems then the left-back can certainly find a place in his squad.
But the absence of Lee Wallace was not only because of the dispute as the Rangers boss has mentioned that the 30-year-old wasn’t physically fit enough to be part of the travelling contingent.
Another player who has not travelled with the squad is Harry Forrester even though he returned to the Hummel Training Centre. And this is clear indication that the attacking midfielder is not part of the long-term plans at Rangers FC.
Forward Michael O’Halloran also did not board the plane to Spain and news has it that the player has already moved to A-League side Melbourne City on a two-year deal.
25-year-old midfielder Jason Holt too wasn’t part of Friday’s training session and he too is scheduled to move out of Ibrox. Fleetwood and Plymouth are said to be interested in the players and it seems that Holt too with be sold by Rangers FC during the summer transfer window.
