Flashback: Mark Allen appointed as Rangers’ new director of football

On June 20th 2017, Rangers announced that they had appointed Mark Allen as the club’s new Director of Football.

Mark Allen has transformed Rangers off the pitch since being appointed as director of football, overseeing a huge player turnover and brought in Steven Gerrard as manager.

Loads of supporters were over the moon with the club’s decision to appoint Mark Allen, as they took to Twitter to express their opinion.

Mark Allen spent a long period of time with Manchester City as their Academy Director and was responsible for revolutionising their youth set up.

On the 20th of June 2017, Rangers appointed Mark Allen as the club’s new Director of Football.

Indeed, the Welshman took over when the club was an absolute mess during Pedro Caixinha’s reign and things didn’t exactly get better with Graeme Murty in charge. But, since then things have improved massively as he managed to bring in Steven Gerrard, which has certainly worked wonders for the Glasgow club up until this point.

Also, he’s managed to fix the club’s scouting system with Andy Scoulding taking charge, as well as planning changes to the Hummels training centre.

So, it comes as no surprise that some fans were excited to see that Mark Allen had been appointed as the clubs new director of football as he’s been able to attract a number of talented players to Ibrox, as well as helping improve the way the club works and of course, bringing in Steven Gerrard, which is arguably his best achievement.
