One of our strangest transfer decisions of the summer at West Bromwich Albion concerned Gareth McAuley and our failure to offer him a new deal – yesterday he signed on at Rangers.

McAuley has gone on record as saying that head coach Darren Moore wanted to keep him around and given his experience and the fact that for large parts of the summer we only had a young group, that makes all the sense in the world but ultimately someone in the Boardroom was concerned about his age so a deal was never done.

Yesterday the 38-year-old signed a 12 month deal up at Rangers and will now spend the next year working with former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard and given we knew he could still do a job for us in the second tier this year, it’s a fantastic move for him at this late stage in his career and most expect him to do phenomenally well north of the border.

Glad he’s got himself sorted and he’ll have a European adventure given their participation in the Europa League this summer, but I still don’t understand letting him go.
