The winger was allowed to leave for a fee thought to be in the region of £800,000, something McGlynn felt was "good business" for a player in the final year of his contract.
"He was one of our most creative players and because of that a club of the stature of Rangers wanted to sign him," McGlynn said. "The club got a fair amount of money back. For all the work that has been put in to him by Stenhousemuir and at this club, it would have been a shame if David had moved on for zero money. He was in the last year of his contract, and he hadn't accepted a new one, so if you get a good offer then that's a bit of good business. If he had left at the end of the season for nothing, that would have been financial suicide."
