Rangers call up four youths for Motherwell

Pedro Caixinha has announced his intent at expanding his options for Sunday’s cup semi with Motherwell with the surprise call up for no less than four youth players, it has emerged.

While central defender Ross McCrorie can almost qualify as a senior veteran these days, left back Myles Beerman gets a recall and will be in the Portuguese’s plans for Motherwell, along with utility man Jordan Thompson and midfield engine room Jamie Barjonas.

Why Rangers should move for free agent ex-team mate of summer signing

With Rangers’ well-documented problems at full back starting to be a bit of an issue, with untimely injuries and insufficient resources presenting the position as something of an obstacle, a low-risk signature to bolster the squad in that area may be of use.

Currently Rangers have admittedly modest depth at right back in the form of James Tavernier and Lee Hodson, but on the left flank injury problems have created a bit of a mess.

Captain Lee Wallace is definitely a miss, Myles Beerman has faded from the first team entirely this season, pre-season hope Jordan Thompson has been ditched from left back too, leaving just on-loan Cardiff man Declan John as Rangers’ only viable left back option outwith Lee Hodson.

Is THIS being neglected at Ibrox?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

If there were a few notes of positivity following Pedro Caixinha’s appointment last season, it was his willingness to use Rangers’ youth products without fear.

Thanks to the Portuguese manager, the likes of Jamie Barjonas, Aidan Wilson and Myles Beerman all got a chance to impress at the highest level, and while results were not always favourable, these young players rarely let their team down and indeed in most cases became even more highly regarded.

O'Halloran gone - more loans to follow?

 Article by: Richard, for Ibrox Noise

Pedro had no option but to bring in so many new players for Rangers that there is now a glut of players at the club blocking the talented youth players route to first team football this season. With Michael O’Halloran becoming the first senior summer departure via loan today, there is a strong case for other fringe players both youth and senior to follow likewise.

This situation needs to be looked at very thoroughly and carefully by the Head of Academy Craig Mulholland, under 20’s manager Graeme Murty and ex-Man City’s Mark Allen, the new Director of Football, to see what the best system will be for the future of our best younger talent.

Pedro makes key personnel switch?

 Article by: Ibrox Noise

In a slightly unexpected move at Ibrox, manager Pedro Caixinha has apparently made a change at left back with previous deputy Myles Beerman being restored to Graeme Murty’s youth setup while traditional midfielder Jordan Thompson has been surprisingly promoted to become captain Lee Wallace’s deputy.

The Maltese international did rather well during his brief spell at the tail end of the campaign, and big things had been expected of him with some seeing him as a natural successor to the established first-teamer, but with Jordan Thompson taking his place on the trip to England while both Beerman and Thompson went out with Murty’s unders for the pre-season tour of Northern Ireland last week, it marks an unexpected change at the back.

Is this the smartest thing Pedro Caixinha has done at Ibrox?

Inspired by Alec Beveridge, a long-time poster on Ibrox Noise (we do read the comments you know), it has occurred to the site that manager Pedro Caixinha’s seemingly strange act of announcing his team 36 hours early for the trip to Rugby Park was in fact a calculated and deliberate act and not just a quirky and eccentric approach to the match.

As we remember, not only was the announcement of the team a day and a half early, it threw in a total left-fielder with the news two rookies would make their senior debuts in the heart of defence. And yet, despite many questioning whether Pedro had lost his marbles, in the weeks that have followed it has been an act completely vindicated.

Why this player just isn't a problem against Celtic

“How many games has Beerman played in the first team? A reality check required.”

This was a comment in response to the site suggesting Lee Wallace has a fight on his hands to regain his place in light of Myles Beerman’s impressive rise from nowhere. The young man has imposed himself effortlessly in matches, looking every inch the assured and seasoned campaigner rather than the rookie he supposedly was.

The dismissal of such promising talent just because of his age and lack of experience, despite three comfortable matches in a row to boast of is pretty prehistoric logic, as if such a young player could not possibly be valid competition to his senior counterpart.

Has this Rangers player earned a start on Sunday?

If Rangers’ defensive crisis has led to one thing, it has been the rise of two brand new starlets into the first team. Myles Beerman we will cover in another entry, but today we focus on 20-year old David Bates who has risen from obscurity to start three matches in succession following the absences of essentially the entire backline bar Danny Wilson.

Bates was already on loan at Ibrox from Raith Rovers before then-manager Mark Warburton decided to make the boy’s time in Govan permanent.

With Philippe Senderos, Clint Hill, Rob Kiernan and Danny Wilson in command of the first-team defensive shirts, Bates looked like a mere squad player, a reserve, a utility stopper to come in only when desperately needed. And in truth, that is how it has played out; with three centre-backs unavailable, Bates has been called on to partner the only remaining senior one at manager Pedro Caixinha’s disposal, and the surprising reality is Bates has given a very competent account of himself.

Gamble: has this stat justified Rangers' risky move?

While the Pedro Caixinha regime is still fledgling, and arguably cannot be fully judged yet, the board nevertheless made a massive gamble with his appointment. Fans wanted McInnes, Wright, Souness, McLeish or indeed Frank De Boer to climb the marble staircase in earnest.

Instead, Stewart Robertson, Dave King and Paul Murray hoodwinked the lot of us with the most left-field managerial appointment in Rangers’ history by making Portguese Pedro Caixinha Rangers’ new boss in replacement of Loaf Boy.

A massive wake up call for this Rangers star

When the hordes of ‘deserters’ made their way out of Ibrox in that fateful spring/summer period of 2012, it became en-vogue for the club’s star players to break supporters’ hearts by leaving through the back door with Rangers receiving nothing for the vast majority of them.

Only a handful of senior players remained on Rangers’ books, including internationals like Carlos Bocanegra and Dorin Goian, not to mention Bocanegra’s international team-mate Maurice Edu. But all of them would leave not long after, and in both Boca and Goian’s cases, Rangers had to pay out their contracts to get their wages off the books.
