Jon Daly leaves Rangers


Jon Daly today confirmed he has left Rangers. He posted a photo of the players training and captioned it:

“Last day today. Great bunch of boys. Been a pleasure. Good luck Sunday.”

Daly, who never featured under McCall due to injury, was high-profile a signing in 2013 in the eyes of Scottish football as a Republic of Ireland Catholic electing to leave Dundee United for Ibrox, and must be credited for tolerating the criticism he received, none of which was from anyone connected with Rangers.

His career at Rangers was summed up by lots of heart and desire, but a lack of quality, and sadly he will be best remembered as the epitome of the turgid route-one football played under ex-boss Ally McCoist, given his aerial prowess and excellence as a target man.

No one could accuse Daly of not giving everything, but he began to receive a great deal of criticism from Rangers supporters, frustrated by his limitations.

But it must equally not be forgotten his strike rate at Ibrox was actually quite reasonable, with 23 goals in 53 appearances, around one in two.

He was out of contract and leaves with fans’ best wishes.

  1. One of McCoist's better signings but equally, he was totally destroyed by McCoist and the totally inept McDowall who has now totally disappeared off the radar, no doubt to count the mega bucks that he earned for doing less than nothing during his time with Rangers. Good luck to Jogn Daly for the future, which is more than I wish to the other two that were clearly only at Rangers for the money!

  6. He won the Sam English bowl and if we had teams that hit the by line and whipped in crosses his rate and success would be higher.

    Just as much our inability to stop crosses hurts us so does our inability provide a quality cross and proper service to our strikers.
