    Says the poster supporting a team chock full of league 1/Championship players.



    It would be nice to have a 'Glen' in the 25 man squad next season.
    Those same players were good enough to keep us in the Premier League both times of asking though.

      I'll always be sceptical of players from Scotland. Back in the day, Scotland produced world class players and this reflected well on their league. Nowadays Scotland are shite and their league is shite (look at their European record). Oh and look at Conor Goldson - seemingly highly regarded at Rangers, but nowhere near the required level in the Premier league (and I liked Conor Goldson!).
      In 78 Scotland had one of, if not the best team ever to leave these islands for a World Cup.

      And they buggered it up.

      Yes and when they were 23, or younger, they were only good enough for League 1 or the Championship!!

      It's almost as if young footballers can get better.

      Rangers have another defender I prefer. Goldson or something ? Hearing good things.

      Wasn’t first choice in our Championship team once Duffy arrived; that’s not going to change.

      We do however need a new right back.

      I know it’s the league below, but the fact that Steven Dobbie, at age 35, can score 21 goals in 30 Scottish Championship games tells you all you need to know about the standard of defending in the MLT. A stylish half decent defender like Goldson will probably look like Beckenbauer in comparison.

      Of course they get better. That's why they move on to Bognor, Worthing or Cork City, etc.

      Double right back at yer.

      Once upon a time there were footballers going by the names of Dunky, Duffy, Knocky, Marchy, Murray & Stephensy who were all younger and all playing in the Championship or League One.

      Strangely enough over time they got better and better until one day they were all grown up and Premier League footballers.



      Taking against a 'young' player just because he's not a household PL name, and therefore out of the Albion's league, or plying his trade in a league deemed inferior (as opposed to all the superior leagues around the globe) would be incredibly short sighted if it weren't for the fact it's basically nonsense.
