Rangers’ play-off final defeat at the hands of Motherwell in May condemned the club to another year in the Scottish Championship and marked the end of an era in the process.
Several club stalwarts who had been part of dragging the Gers back from the brink over the past three seasons have been let go, and some have taken to the media to voice their discontent.
One such player is Ian Black, and the former Hearts midfielder spoke on what he feels was mistreatment on the part of Rangers in the aftermath of their play-off failure.
"It was weird to read in the papers that we were all released," he said in an interview with Sky Sports." We’d achieved two promotions and we had a bad season last season, but we didn't even get a thank you or a phone call to say you’re not getting your contract renewed.
"It would have been more respectful had that happened but none of us have received that."
Black made 111 appearances in his time at Rangers and was largely favoured under Ally McCoist, with subsequent bosses Kenny McDowall and Stuart McCall relying less on the 30-year old.
The former Brentford manager will look to instil his footballing philosophy on his new squad in the coming months and more new faces are sure to arrive as the Gers prepare for another promotion push.
