What is Rangers’ best XI – you choose


It really is a nice problem to have – with an entire new XI signed this summer (Joe Garner should be announced over the next 24 hours, Philippe Senderos and/or Joleon Lescott is set to join them) Rangers’ business this summer has been some of the most dramatic turnover at Ibrox (in a good way) since summer 1998 when Dick Advocaat effectively signed a new team.

Those days are long gone, of course, with silly £12M fees for Norwegians best forgotten, but that this summer has seen (likely) eleven players secured at an outlay struggling to hit £2M in total it represents absolutely incredible value for money.

The fact Rangers are back in the market for the likes of Barton, Lescott, Senderos and Kranjcar (not to mention former Milan defender Onyewu) really does show the incredible pulling power of Ibrox, Mark Warburton, Frank McParland and Rangers.

Well, it sure is not for the SPL…

But what is Rangers’ best XI?

It is evident that no matter who Rangers fans might theoretically select, there are at least six or seven unhappy players who have a strong case for selection.

If it is not Michael O’Halloran it is Harry Forrester. If not Martyn Waghorn it is Joe Dodoo. And that is without even roaming anywhere near midfield where Rangers are bursting so hard at the seams with quality that poor Jason Holt, arguably Rangers’ best midfielder last season, cannot even get a looking in beyond the odd sub cameo now.

Picking the best XI this season is a nightmare, but a good nightmare to have – if ever something represented a deep squad, it is the lack of universal agreement over the best possible team selection. Even now with Senderos and Lescott potentially joining the ranks in Govan, defence may finally start to look properly blessed with quality.

Here is an Ibroxnoise.co.uk theoretical XI. Select your own and tell us how little you agree!


  1. Havent see three of those players. Did you no have Hill and Kranjcar in your last team, 2 games and they are out…. FFS

  2. You obviously didn`t rate last years team ….you`ve dropped almost everyone of them and replaced some of them with guys who you`ve never seen play yet (or haven`t signed ).Best team currently.
    Foderingham, Tavernier ,Kiernan , Wilson ,Wallace , Barton ,Rossiter, Windass ,Waghorn, Dodoo, McKay.If we sign Garner , he replaces Dodoo.New centre back required to replace Kiernan. Hopefully neither of those two.

  3. Great value for money…..only time will tell if that's the case.

    You can do a shop in Poundland and go home with a basket of shopping and think that's good value….in reality it's a pile of junk.

    Garner scored 5 goals in the Championship last season, hardly a ringing endorsement.

    We are still looking for a big, strong centre half……..ffs why was Clint Hill signed? Because he's the Republican lover, Queen hating Joey Barton's mate?

    • I think almost all of last season players including the captain had dissapeared into footballs doldrums. Warburton took that side and developed and got the best out of it. Now its all over lol.
