Kenny Miller has had his say on departed Director of Football, Mark Allen on BBC Scotland’s Sportsound via The Scottish Sun.
When asked about what he thought of Allen’s departure and if he would be a loss to Rangers, Miller made the following remarks:
“I wouldn’t say so, no. I know Steven spoke very highly of him. The club’s decision to part ways was still strange”.
“I don’t know a lot about it but it was quite strange. It was quite sudden, I think he did an interview two or three days before leaving where he was talking about the future”.
“Analysing the job that he did – a lot of players were signed, that’s for sure. The success of those players will be up for debate depending on who you ask”.
Miller, by his own admission, doesn’t know any details about Allen’s departure yet still calls it “strange” and references that Allen was responsible for signing a lot of players.
If you were to just critique Allen based on his transfer record, Rangers have improved over the last two seasons, qualified for the group stages of the Europa League and now look like challenging for the league title. When you consider the fact they’ve been able to bring in the likes of big names such as Jermain Defoe, keep Alfredo Morelos despite big bids from China and win the race for a talented youngster such as Joe Aribo, it’s hard to agree with Miller.
Speaking to reporters (quotes by the Scotsman) back in September, Gerrard himself called him a ‘massive support’ and said there was a ‘void’ when he left considering their working relationship, so Miller’s comments do appear to be somewhat wide of the mark.
