Barry Ferguson has said on PLZ Soccer that he is surprised at Mark Allen leaving Rangers.
The former Rangers midfielder believes that Allen did a fine job at Rangers as the Scottish Premiership club’s Director of Football.
Rangers recently announced on their official website that Allen is leaving the club after two years due to “family reasons and in order to explore other options.”
During his tenure at Rangers, Allen made a big impact on the Ibrox club’s recruitment process and signed a number of major players.
Ferguson said on PLZ Soccer about Allen’s exit from Rangers: “Firstly, it was a surprise that he left his job for family reasons.
“But I think it has been quite positive [his tenure], of course bringing in the manager, who is, of course, a massive name in football.
“And then bringing in some quality players as well. So, I think during his two years he has done a fine job.”
Rangers have made a good start to the season, and the Ibrox faithful should be optimistic about the coming weeks and months.
The Gers are second in the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 12 points from five matches, just three points behind leaders and bitter Old Firm rivals Celtic.
Rangers have also progressed to the group stage of the Europa League for the second successive season.
Steven Gerrard’s side will face Feyenoord at Ibrox in the Europa League Group G on Thursday evening.
