With Rangers’ competitive pre-season underway in earnest, a great number of things have emerged, and one of them is the two-time selection of new signing Lee Hodson.
With three League Cup matches now under Rangers’ belt, established RB James Tavernier featured at Motherwell, but has not played since, with Northern Ireland’s Lee Hodson since taking that slot.
Without any doubt, while Rangers will face bigger tests than Annan and East Stirling, the backline does appear to have been a bit more solid and robust, with Hodson’s awareness of when to get forward and when not to being quite prominent.
As the season wears on, do Bears think Hodson will surface as the first-choice in that position, or is he literally fulfilling the purpose of cover and depth that Rangers lacked last season?
Will the traditional first choice Tav retain his slot and leave Hodson on the bench more often than not?
