talkSPORT host Alan Brazil talks up "big problems" at Rangers

Former Manchester United player and talkSPORT radio host Alan Brazil has claimed there are “big problems” ahead for Rangers off the pitch.

The burly presenter was talking on his breakfast talkSPORT radio show [19/09/2019 6:15 am] as he discussed claims made by a Rangers supporting friend that things were not at all rosy in the Ibrox hierarchy.

“You know I won’t go into it now because I can’t substantiate it yet, but I am hearing there are still big problems at Rangers at the top,” said Brazil.

“Big problems with the owner.

“Anyway, I am not going to say anymore because someone called me a couple of nights ago, and he’s a Rangers supporter as well, and he said ‘you won’t believe what’s going on’.

“It’ll all come out in the wash.”

Ally McCoist simply responded, “Are you trying to spoil my Thursday already?”

The comments could well relate to the resignation of former Gers director of football Mark Allen.

The former Man City Academy boss left his role at Rangers last week with the transfer window coming to an end, citing “family reasons”.

But because Allen left his role so abruptly, many are questioning the true motives behind Allen’s decision to move on.

At Rangers, the likes of Steven Gerrard have praised Allen saying he “completed the mission” [Daily Record] at Ibrox before moving on. Fans have also paid tribute.

But the likes of ex-Celtic player Kris Commons have criticised the former Rangers transfer boss [The Scottish Daily Mail (16/09 print edition, The Verdict supplement page 16)].

Rangers appear adamant that the relationship came to a natural end and there are not rumblings of discontent at Ibrox.
