12 Rangers players to leave? Summer Ibrox exodus pending

Rangers appear to be in the midst of preparing for a goliath squad overhaul this summer, amid the continuing breaking sources of the number of players leaving.

Ibrox Noise takes you through all the information we have to hand about exactly who seems to be involved in this exodus.

Jon McLaughlin:

He simply won’t be offered a new deal. End of story.

Leon Balogun:

Wants to stay but no new deal offer forthcoming, will probably be backdoored out like he was under Gio again. But there’s at least a bit of a chance he will get an offer still.

Borna Barisic:

Information is he’s signed a 2+1 year deal with Turks Trabzonspor. His deal expires in May and he wasn’t offered a new one, nor was he interested in one.

Ben Davies:

He’s been told he’s expendable and surplus, but shifting his wage won’t be easy. £30K plus a £4M transfer fee and a four-year deal (two years still to go) was such a mistake from Ross Wilson, but we need to get him gone. He’s been told to find a new club.

John Lundstram:

No new deal was struck, and he’s reported as signing a three-year pre-contract with Borna’s new employers as well. He’s off to Turkey barring any staggering last-minute hitches.

Ryan Jack:

Not been offered a new deal yet, with his injury history he’s unlikely to get one. He’s looking a strong bet to be finding a new club this summer.

Kieran Dowell:

Bad signing, didn’t fit the club, but on a free at least and wage is modest. Been told he’s surplus and won’t be part of the plans going forward.

Tom Lawrence:

Too many injuries, too few performances, and overall not worth the cash we pay him. He will move on this summer if a buyer can be found.

Kemar Roofe:

No new deal here either, again like so many, too many injuries – it would take a miracle for him to get a new contract extension, but we’ve got an update later on that…

Ianis Hagi:

Rangers are as interested in him as he is in Rangers – AKA not at all. He wants to stay in Spain, his Rangers bridges are burned, but he’s been so rubbish there that he’ll do well to get the deal he wants. Clement isn’t bothered by him.

Fabio Silva:

Rangers not interested in keeping him, he’s not interested in staying. Horrible signing and he’ll be leaving this summer.

Abdallah Sima:

The idea of trying to sort a deal for him has now collapsed – one injury too many means there’s no value in spending £6M on him. He’ll go back to Brighton this summer.

There are 50/50s over a lot of other players like Cortes (it’s only an option to buy), Cantwell (word is there’s interest in him) and Scott Wright (surely to God we’re not keeping him) not to mention Lowry and King, plus the speculation over Tav and Goldson, but the ones previously mentioned in this list are the main players who are a strong bet to head off.

A summer of much change is pending.
