Following stories in the press that new Rangers manager Steven Gerrard was set to give forgotten striker Joe Dodoo a second chance at Ibrox, news has broken this hour that he will be going out on loan to Blackpool.
In short, no, he was not getting a second chance at Ibrox, and wherever that story came from (not our sources anyway) was completely and total shash.
Rangers continue to look for striking talent, and attacking flair, with only two recognised strikers on the books – Alfredo Morelos and Eduardo Herrera.
Everyone else is either expired or otherwise departed meaning the opportunity was definitely there for Dodoo to make a mark on the team, and information claimed that’s exactly what Stevie Ger was going to do.
But now we know he is close to departing for Blackpool in League One pouring cold water of any opportunity under Gerrard, showing the information claiming he was getting that chance was absolutely wrong.
We are a little disappointed he won’t be getting a shot at the first team this season, but in Gerrard we trust and hopefully the new players coming in will be befitting of Rangers.
