Ruthless Rangers boardroom exodus to continue with Andrew Dickson departure not the last - Stephen McGowan

The departure of Andrew Dickson in the Rangers boardroom won’t be the last with further Ibrox exits expected, according to Stephen McGowan.

The exodus in the Rangers boardroom has already seen Douglas Park, Ross Wilson and Stewart Robertson all confirming themselves to be leaving the club.

McGowan, writing in the Scottish Daily Mail (Saturday 6 May, page 114), shared that new chairman John Bennett is set to continue his “ruthless” clear out with further changes still expected.

“John Bennett has replaced Douglas Park in the chairman’s hot set. Wasting no time on small talk, the new commander-in-chief has shown a ruthless commitment to corporate improvement.

“Sporting director Ross Wilson saw the writing on the wall and jumped ship for Nottingham Forest.

“MD Robertson and academy honcho Mulholland have both confirmed their imminent departure.

“Even the man dubbed the ‘Black Box’ for his ability to withstand catastrophic events has had a tap on the shoulder. Director of finance and football administration Dickson is heading for the exit – and word has it he won’t be the last.”

Exodus inbound.

Rangers fans have been calling for the club to wield change in the boardroom all season, and it looks like John Bennett is wasting no time in getting going.

After the announced departures of Park, Wilson and Robertson, the Gers faithful will hope that the new season can bring fresh optimism of rising back to the top of Scottish football.

A reshuffle of ideas has been desperately needed for years now, and the fact Rangers are 13 points off Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership is evidence of the club’s struggles.

Michael Beale has had one hand tied behind his back during his early days in the Ibrox dugout, but hopefully, a strong core to the club can allow him to thrive moving forward.

It seems Bennett wants to instil change ahead of a busy summer transfer window, with Beale admitting that as many as 12 players could be on their way out of the club this summer.

The exodus has begun in the boardroom, and it looks like Beale could be about to follow suit on the pitch.
