Glasgow Rangers fans have expressed disappointment over Dean Shiels’ departure from Ibrox on social media site Twitter.

Mark Warburton chose not to offer the midfielder a new contract at Rangers, and his departure was announced earlier today.

Shiels had been with Rangers for four years, and although he was not a permanent starter last season, he did play a role in helping them get promoted.

Shiels made 87 appearances in total for Rangers, and he is well regarded by supporters of the Glasgow club - as shown by the reaction to his departure on Twitter.

Shiels now becomes a free agent, and he is likely to have plenty of suitors this summer.

The 31-year-old’s exit from Rangers does free up some wages, which Warburton is likely to spend over the summer.

Rangers have already brought in four new players since their promotion to the Scottish Premiership was confirmed and more are expected to follow.

Niko Kranjcar is the latest man to be linked with a move to Rangers, with the Croatian expected to sign a two-year-deal at Ibrox in the near future.
