Well-known and respected Rangers source the Rangers Review, with their ties to Rangers’ board and insider dealings, have revealed Rangers are to dispense with the services of Todd Cantwell and Tom Lawrence, confirming what Ibrox Noise has reported in recent weeks about the pair, not to mention Scott Wright as well.

Sam Lammers and Ianis Hagi will also be released if deals and clubs can be found for them, which is likely to be the case with both players, albeit Lammers’ wages are an issue in his preferred location of Holland.

This more or less confirms the exits of all five, freeing up a very useful £90,000pw wages as well as earning the club some decent transfer fees if buyers can be successfully found for all five.

It’s been abundantly clear that Rangers needed a significant clear out and this is near-official confirmation that both Todd Cantwell and Tom Lawrence are expendable, along with ex-Dons winger Wright, while exits are also sought for Hagi and Lammers.

It’s safe to say none of these five did especially well as Rangers players, that none lived up to any kind of billing and none of them really added anything to the club long term – the closest was Cantwell’s impressive-looking first four months where he did briefly look a lot like the old price tag he used to have of £40M.

But it was fleeting, and based on a lack of pressure, and when the pressure told last season, he was unable to shine.

And that’s a story of so many Rangers players these days.

Lawrence is another example.

All five are surplus to requirements and Rangers will look to ship them all out if possible. We also understand Kieran Dowell was told some months ago he was equally surplus, not to mention Ben Davies.

And of course there’s the ongoing James Tavernier and Connor Goldson stuff which strong suggests both will be off this close season as well.

A summer of change.
