Rangers confirm trialist won’t join


Rangers manager Mark Warburton today confirmed he has scrapped trialist Gai Assulin’s time at Murray Park and the former Barcelona, Man City and Real Mallorca attacker has now left Rangers with no contract being offered.

The Israeli had been on trial at Murray Park, with many hoping he would kick-start his career and indeed one such hopeful was Spain legend Andres Iniesta who urged Warburton to sign up the playmaker.

But Rangers’ chief today confirmed the trial is over and Assulin will not be joining.

He said:

“We won’t be taking that (Gai Assulin’s trial) any further.”

In truth it was not a position Rangers were in desperate need of depth in, with the likes of Barrie McKay, Nicky Law, Jason Holt and Nathan Oduwa et al all providing high attacking quality and creativity as it is, but for whatever reason, Assulin will not be joining their ranks at Ibrox.


  1. The guy must have a serious injury problem or perhaps his attitude is completely wrong. Anyone who has seen footage of him playing in the Barcelona youth set-up will be gutted that he will not be playing at Ibrox.
    He truly was a ringer for Messi in his playing style, Runs at defences, Very tricky and very quick.
    Warbs will have made the right call. I'm not doubting that, but I'm really curious why he decided that he won't be joining Rangers. Really disappointed.
