Rangers winger Barrie McKay and defender Rob Kiernan have been absent from the start of the club’s pre-season training, according to Ibrox Noise.

The pair were reportedly missing as Pedro Caixinha continued to mould his team ahead of his first full term in charge of the Gers.

Attacker McKay made his debut in 2012 under Ally McCoist and enjoyed a successful opening spell with the club.

After two loan spells away from the side in 2013 and 2014 the forward returned to the Ibrox and was frequently in Mark Warburton’s team.

The 22-year-old had an inconsistent debut season in the Scottish top-flight, scoring six goals and providing 11 assists in 46 appearances and his absence has sparked rumours that he may be on his way out this summer.

With his current deal reportedly expiring in May 2018, should Rangers choose to sell McKay they may look to get a high fee for the player that was thought to be a future star.

Kiernan was another notable absence from the proceedings.

The defender suffered a calf injury towards the end of last season and reportedly did not take part in a month’s worth of training before the team took a break, which has led some to suspect he may be on his way out this summer.

The defender will reportedly be available for free, with Fulham being linked with a move for him at the start of the year and his contract ending in 2018.
