Has THIS Rangers star benefited most from Pedro?

In charge now for over six months, Pedro Caixinha still significantly divides opinion of Rangers fans down the middle. For every likeminded soul as ourselves who has major doubts over his ability, there are others who believe he must be given more time.

However, there has been one unexpected bonus of his arrival in Govan, and that has been the marked improvement in form of James Tavernier. We at Ibrox Noise have been meaning to cover this topic for weeks, but we have to admit, if one player has tangibly benefited from Caixinha, it has been the first-choice right back.

Failure at Firhill; Pedro's problem

No denying Kilmarnock, Motherwell, Hibs and Dundee did Rangers a huge favour today. After the side dropped another two points in a dreadful display last night, various other outfits’ results in Scotland’s top flight this afternoon helped the Ibrox men out and not only stopped us falling down the table, but in fact strengthened our position thanks to the point ‘gained’.

But it does not alter the disappointment of struggling to even clinch a point at Firhill against 10 men – taking a stunning effort from Graham Dorrans to secure even that.

A shock exit from Ibrox?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Sudden rumours this morning have caught dramatic pace with ‘a shock exit’ on the cards. From nowhere, speculation has reached fever pitch that a key player at Ibrox is set to leave, but as yet no hard evidence has arisen as to who it could be.

A few names have sprung up, such as goalkeeper Wes Foderingham, midfielders Niko Kranjcar and Jordan Rossiter, but the truth is the story exists only as guesswork at this point and there is no point plucking names from thin air.

Mark Warburton to complete three-player Rangers swoop; reports

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Hot on the heels of the failed bid but simmering interest in James Tavernier and successful swoop for winger Barrie McKay is the breaking story this morning that Rangers’ ex-manager Mark Warburton is finally showing interest in goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

This was a transfer link many fans have expected for some time, with Foderingham being one of Rangers’ better performers last season, and had been tentatively proposed as a player who would attract suitors.

Is Pedro hinting these three out of favour stars have futures at Ibrox?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

With yesterday’s news of the significant omissions from the Europa League squad, and the extensive implications for the likes of (reportedly leaving) Andy Halliday and Joe Dodoo who have been excluded from the submitted list, most fans have been processing the likely departures as a result of these absences.

However, a further nugget of curiosity has to be the three supposedly out-of-favour and surplus players who are most definitely included in the squad, and who may have received something of a reprieve as a result.

Imminent seven player Ibrox exodus on cards

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

Rangers are set to shift seven players with the breaking news that six have been excluded from the Europa League squad while a seventh is a definite target for Mark Warburton’s Nottingham.

Joe Dodoo, Michael O’Halloran, Andy Halliday, Rob Kiernan, Harry Forrester and Matt Crooks have all been excluded from the squad to face Progres Niederkorn, while James Tavernier has confirmed he is considering a move to Nottingham Forest after an initial bid from manager Mark Warburton was rejected. He is expected to increase his submission to a seven-figure sum this week.

Rangers finally to focus on problem area; reports

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

If regular readers of Ibrox Noise know one thing, it is this site’s confusion that amidst all the restructuring of the first-team squad done this summer, the full-back slots have been left relatively untouched.

Sure, Hearts’ Callum Paterson was briefly linked before his trip to Cardiff, and Jose Abella appeared to be moving close for a while too, but by and large the left and right back slots have been left as you were, with Lee Wallace and Myles Beerman challenging for the left while the opposing flank saw James Tavernier and Lee Hodson vying for the slot.

Two clubs: four players - Rangers linked with ditching more dead wood; report

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

As Rangers fans know, Pedro Caixinha has been desperately hard at work bringing in new recruits and trying to shed as much of the dead wood as possible.

Already we have seen the departures of Clint Hill, Philippe Senderos, Jon Toral, Emerson Hyndman and Joe Garner, while Bruno Alves, Fabio Cardoso, Ryan Jack, Daniel Candeias, Dalcio, and Alfredo Morelos have come the other way and arrived at the Marble Staircase; but the work is far from over.

With Carlos Pena and Eduardo Herrera mooted for a switch over the next 24 hours, two English sides have been heavily linked with two players respectively, meaning Rangers could possibly hope to shift four players in one reasonably fell swoop.

Low cost fringe international RB - perfect upgrade for James Tavernier

Article by: Ibrox Noise
If one aspect of Rangers’ summer business has been worryingly lacking, it has been the lack of investment in the full back areas.

Sure, technically Pedro Caixinha has four at his disposal in the shape of Lee Wallace, Myles Beerman, James Tavernier and Lee Hodson, but while there are hopes captain Wallace will step up to the plate much better next season than he did last, those sentiments do not seem to extend to James Tavernier whose debut season in Scotland’s top flight was an unmitigated disaster, but for a minority of decent displays.
