Ally McCoist: The Rangers manager will allow midfielder Francesco Stella to leav

The 21-year-old former Siena midfielder has made just one substitute appearance since moving to the Glasgow giants on a free transfer last September.

The lack of first team action has led Stella to request a move away from Rangers, which manager Ally McCoist has agreed to.

"We will not stand in his way because we feel at this stage he wouldn't benefit the first team.

"He is in the process of leaving the club now and he goes with our best wishes."
