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.

"Francesco has made it clear to us that he is disappointed at the lack of first team matches, which I totally understand," McCoist told the Rangers website.

"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."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
