Popular figure explains why he left Rangers this summer

Former Rangers player Barrie McKay has revealed that he left the Ibrox club as a result of bad treatment from manager Pedro Caixinha.

After Caixinha was appointed as manager of the Gers, McKay found regular first team football hard to find, and played a role in only three out of the club’s final eight matches of last season.

McKay has since linked with Nottingham Forest and will be hoping to receive regular first team football under manager Mark Warburton.

The Scotland international is believed to have joined Forest for a fee in the region of £500,000 and admitted that leaving Rangers was not a difficult decision.

He said, “Not really at the time, with the way things went with the manager and the way I was being treated and stuff.

“It made the decision easy for when the gaffer got on the phone and he was obviously a big factor in me coming here and working with him again.”
