Ex-Rangers coach Michael Beale recalls ‘top memories’ as he shares snap of Mark Allen catch up

MICHAEL BEALE has shared a snap from a catch up with former Rangers director of football Mark Allen.

The former Rangers coach was joined by Steven Gerrard, Gary McAllister and Tom Culshaw for the meeting.

Allen was instrumental in bringing Steven Gerrard to Rangers with Beale, Culshaw and McAllister brought in as part of his backroom team.

And it’s clear they’ve kept a relationship as Allen – now sporting director at Swansea – met up with his former Rangers colleagues at Aston Villa.

Beale posted an image of the get-together on Instagram as he reminisced over their time at Ibrox.

He wrote: “Good to catch up with Mark Allen today.

“Some top memories and good times shared with him”. 

On his exit from Rangers to join Villa last year, Beale posted: Thank you – to everyone at Rangers Football Club, the players, staff, board members and most importantly the fans.

“Thank you so much for the support and time you have given me. Representing the club was a huge honour and privilege.

“The last 3.5yrs has been an incredible experience for me and my family, my daughter was born here in Glasgow and I leave with two sons who are Rangers crazy.

“The time has flown and I have memories that will last a lifetime – The “invincible 55”, the big European nights / performances, the incredible away support at every city and stadium we visit, 193 games including 53 in European competition, the unbeaten run in old firm matches, the current run of 1 defeat in 52 league games, working with this group of players, the people I’ve met and the friendships built both inside and outside of the club – Football is about the players and fans.

“When those two groups of people unite then very special things can be achieved. This club has shown that for 150 years and will continue to go from strength to strength – because the squad of players is fantastic and the fans are like no other I’ve seen in football”
