It’s not all bad for Rangers is it?

It’s been a fairly shite week to be a Rangers fan. The 5-1 Old Firm defeat and then the whole Joey Barton carry on has made it one of the worst weeks since Mark Warburton and Davie Weir took charge last year but it’s not all doom and gloom is it? Surely there’s a few bright spots amidst the darkness...

Jason Holt is fit again

Holt has been a big loss in the Rangers midfield so far this season. The former Hearts midfielder was a stand-out for the ‘Gers last term and his energy and willingness to make attacking runs beyond the striker produced a number of goals as Rangers romped to the Championship.

Matt Crooks is almost ready to make his debut

Rangers Transfer News Matt Crooks

Big things are hoped for of Crooks, and his former Accrington teammate Josh Windass, after their move north. The physically-imposing midfielder has had a few appearances for the under 20 side in recent weeks and is in line to make his first team debut against Queen of the South on Tuesday

Joe Garner is off the mark

Despite not being the biggest ‘name’ of the summer signings, Garner did attract the biggest fee and the £1.5m outlay for the striker will see fans expect an instant return. A goal against Celtic last week should, hopefully, be the first of many in light blue.

The Ross County game is a Saturday at 3pm

Tenuous, I know, but the last few weeks have been rubbish with friday night kick-offs, international breaks and then last weekend’s shambles. A three o’clock kick-off, and a game Rangers really should be winning, on a Saturday is a welcome treat.

And finally...

As bad a week it has been for Rangers fans, we never got pumped 7-0 in midweek.
