Nicky Law comments on how Rangers handled player releases

Eleven players were unceremoniously released by Rangers at the end of last season.

Rangers midfielder Nicky Law has given his view on the way the club dealt with releasing a number of players.

It’s thought that most of the axed talents, including veterans Lee McCulloch and Kris Boyd, were notified through the media and that has raised doubts as to how business is handled within Ibrox.

Law was restricted in how candid he could be - given that he remains a fixture at the club - but the 27-year old seemed to understand the grievances of his former colleagues, some of whom have taken to the media to vent their frustrations.

“...They've came out and spoken and they're free to do so and it's obviously difficult for me to say too much as I'm still at the club,” said Law in an interview with the Herald Scotland.

"You can maybe understand though that they might be upset because that's not usually how you would find out you were leaving a club.

"It obviously leaves a bitter taste for those boys, and probably more so for the older boys like Jig [McCulloch], who has given fantastic service to the club, captained the club for three years and of course is Rangers through and through. So I'm sure it would have hurt.

"I don't know the ins and outs of it too well, so it's difficult for me to comment too much, but the boys have come out and said what they have said, and from their point of view they will be disappointed and probably hurt by it."

Law was one of the survivors of Rangers’ summer cull and will be looking to remain a key component of an evolving Gers side.

New boss Mark Warburton has wrung the changes and the incumbent Rangers squad will have to adapt to his new methods or face being left behind.

Players of a more technical nature, as in Nicky Law's case, should thrive under the former Brentford boss however, and Gers fans will be excited to see how it all comes together next season.
