Rangers have confirmed their retained list for 2023.

Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent are the headline names who will leave Ibrox this summer.

It's been expected for some time that both players would depart Rangers at the end of their contracts.

But it has now been confirmed in a statement by the club. 

They will be joined by several other major first-team players such as Allan McGregor, who appears to be retiring, Scott Arfield, and Filip Helander. 

Steven Davis - who has been out of action since December last year through injury - remains in talks over his future.

A club statement reads: "Each of the departing players has given the club excellent service and will move on to the next stage in their careers with the warmest wishes and thanks of everyone at Ibrox and the Rangers Training Centre.

"Tributes to the departing players will be paid at tomorrow’s match with Hearts. Additional acknowledgements to those leaving will continue on the club’s digital platforms in the coming weeks, with Allan McGregor to be further recognised in his testimonial match with Newcastle on July 18."

Michael Beale is due to speak to the media in the coming hours and will address the departures then.
