Father’s Day developments at Ibrox – roundup


Father’s Day is normally a quiet celebration globally of one’s old man, but at Ibrox today there was no slow and considered action as a whole heck of a lot went down Govan way and Ibrox Noise (tries) to take you through as much of it as possible.

As we know, the lads went on the famous Spain trip, with four high-profile absentees from the party. This was Steven Gerrard’s maiden training camp as a manager and he has been absolutely looking the part so far.

But one of those high-profile absentees was literally finishing their move out of the club at the time of writing as winger Michael O’Halloran clinched his switch to the Southern Hemisphere with a two year deal at A-League Melbourne City.

This was a signing which was frankly an absolutely disaster for Rangers. The player himself made a couple of mistakes – failing to show for a youth match, and that infamous attendance at Parkhead which some of the ‘know it all’ loyal in our support claimed wasn’t even him. He has ability, no question, but failure to even be called up for Scotland once at the age of 27 does suggest it’s a case of unfulfilled potential.

We wish him the best of luck down there, and we have no hard feelings personally on the site. Que sera sera.

Meanwhile there were another two high-profile absentees from the Spain trip – defender Fabio Cardoso and striker Eduardo Herrera, both presented and accounted for on Friday, were another two to be left out of the trip, while interestingly Rangers took three goalkeepers in Allan McGregor, Wes Foderingham and Jak Alnwick.

Even more intriguingly Andy Halliday, speculated to have been told his time at Ibrox is over, was at both training and on Sunday’s flight.

So it does seem that possible injuries aside, certainly in Wallace’s case, whoever made the trip today is in Stevie Ger’s plans while the stay at homes just aren’t.


  1. Halliday is on the flight! Hopefully they will find him and Windass a club in Spain because they are a waste of a jersey!! Keep players like them, and we ALL know we will not win the league! Get rid of the dead wood and take beggar Murty with them!!

    • Im willing to give josh 1 last chance.i think gerrard will get the best out him.has the potential to be a great player.watch this space.

  2. Good luck 2 wee holt.will b a good player for someone.love the wee guys fight just not good enough.if the rest of our team tried as hard as him we could have won that league

  3. Positive about the new signings but anyone who thinks midfield is complete is wrong – we still need an enforcer to smash Scott Brown.

    Jack or Rossiter might come good in that role but ideally I'd want someone signed. Apart from McGinn (who probably wouldn't sign) there is nobody left in Scotland so would need to look further afield…

  4. We need a Midfield General who is not afraid to get stuck into Brown! 👊

    Sell :
    Windass, Herrera, Cardoso, Pena, Hodson, Dodoo etc 👍⚽💙
