On Tuesday, Glasgow Rangers confirmed that six players will be leaving as free agents at the end of this season.
Those to depart are Wes Foderingham, Jason Holt, Jak Alnwick, Jon Flanagan, Jordan Rossiter and Andy Halliday. The latter’s exit, in particular, is likely to upset the club’s supporters, especially given the fact he is a boyhood ‘Gers fan.
However, the departure of Flanagan does not appear to have been taken the same way by most fans. The right-back joined on a free transfer from Liverpool in 2018 and ended up making 39 appearances in all competitions. He was never really able to nail down a spot in Steven Gerrard’s starting XI and he featured just nine times this term – it is no surprise that he is being allowed to leave for free.
Are you happy Jon Flanagan is leaving?
Following the announcement of his exit, some of the club’s supporters took to Twitter to share their pleasure. You can see some of the very best comments from the social media platform below:
Absolutely delighted we have seen the last of Jon Flanagan at Ibrox. A shameful episode.

Fod was good enough for us to get some sort of fee for him. The rest should have gone long ago as they were never good enough. https://t.co/cSK7ja2R9M
