Following weeks of doubts, Ibrox Noise sources claim Rangers players are “100% behind” the Portuguese manager, something quite plausible following Saturday’s energetic display against Marseille.
There had been doubts following lethargic displays and rumours of unrest, but our understanding is any possible unsettling is a thing of the past (if it ever existed) and the players are 100% invested in their new manager and what he is trying to do.
In truth, listening to star defender Bruno Alves’ testimony, he does not sound like a player who has any doubts about his new manager:
“It was really easy (to join) because I already know his work in Portugal and also I have some team-mates who have been coached by him before. It was easy because he wants to win, he has a strong character and we want to be close to the best and I think he is one of the best, too.”
If Pedro is good enough for Bruno Alves, he is good enough for the rest it seems, and following a disjointed start to life in Glasgow, the Marseille display and result is clear evidence of ideas coming together and harmony in the ranks.
