Is latest Ibrox transfer a mistake?


With today’s news that out of favour Lee Hodson is set to move to St Mirren on a season long loan, we have to wonder… why?

No, not that he’s on the move – we accept the guy isn’t part of Steven Gerrard’s plans and he needs to move on; but this is Rangers doing Alan Stubbs, Mr “I Won’t Sell Scott Allan to Rangers at any cost” a bit of a favour by giving him an international player for nothing.

Stubbs has done nothing but been an obstacle to Rangers – our rivalry with Hibs in the Championship and the toxicity surrounding it mean frankly we shouldn’t be doing them or him any favours at all, yet here we are giving him and his new team a very fine player at no cost.

Many reading this might think ‘don’t complain, we’re finally getting shot of more dead wood’, and they’d have a fair point.

But frankly we’d rather keep Hodson than do Stubbs a turn.

Call it petty, vindictive, whatever you want but we owe Stubbs nothing and he did little during the past 3-6 years beyond hostility towards us, and while we know he and Steven Gerrard are on good terms, we just find this deal a little disappointing.

The player deserves to play, we accept that. But we’d rather it wasn’t for someone or a club who have an axe to grind with ours.
