Three+ Rangers January exits possible – Sadiq is only one…

After Ibrox Noise awarded the signing of Umar Sadiq a pathetic 2 out of 10 this morning, it does seem that Steven Gerrard agrees and the Nigerian’s loan deal is set to be ended early, with a January return to his parent Roma looking a strong certainty.

The colossal striker failed to settle in Scotland on any level it would have to be said, and while his performance at Hampden wasn’t exactly disgraceful (far from it in fact), this would have to be classed as a true failure of a signature every inch as feeble as Dalcio.

Every manager, no matter how good they are, is guilty of a turkey or two. Even the Grand Master Uncle Walter signed several absolute mares, such as Basile Boli, Daniel Prodan, and Gary Bollan.

But we’d have to concede that none of the above come close to either Dalcio or Sadiq, and the latter really has been a bad blot on Stevie’s summer copybook.

Eros Grezda, at this time, is looking worryingly similar. Barely a game played in anger, this big-money capture is of course our own player so sending him on his way isn’t as easy as it with Sadiq, but equally the Albanian has struggled so badly and looks unfit, unhappy, and his miss in the final second against Killie rather summed up mentally where he is.

Fans have reacted with some mild outrage at us daring to diss the ex-Osijek man, saying it’s early days and how can we judge him so fast. Well, that is the problem – not only is it NOT early days (he’s been at Ibrox since September) but in all that time we’ve had even less from him than we’ve had from Sadiq.

We thought we had an international-quality winger who would torment defences – so far all we’ve had is him tormenting our treatment table.

And as we covered earlier, McAllister may have already suggested why this is, but for now, Umar Sadiq does appear to be on his merry way, and following reports that forgotten failure Eduardo Herrera may have his deal terminated as well, Rangers are looking at two and maybe three or more exits already planned in January.

We have nothing against Sadiq, for what it’s worth, and indeed had high hopes for his arrival – but it’s been a dead rubber.

If he does indeed leave, as the Express claims, he will go with our best wishes. It just didn’t work.

  1. A think we need a reality check here guys. Stevie G is a rookie manager what's the difference between him and mad Murts. They are both youth team coaches so a don't expect anything else with the signings he has made .

  2. Off topic a bit here but I see DC second yellow is now being appealed surely we don't think that can be overturned here . Our fans are getting more paranoid by the day .We need to accept decisions that one our way and stand up and take like a man not all this people having it in for us Turkish delight .So let's just move on as the saying goes .

    • I'm happy to take it on the chin Scud but where does it stop. We've had this situation 5 or 6 times now in just 14 months. It's not paranoia. This level of bad refereeing just doesn't happen to other clubs.
      It probably won't be overturned but the club are correct to pursue it to shine a light on it and get some answers.

    • Come on mate let's get real here no other club does this happen to with refs cheating .Have a look at the semi final game a few back Celtic got robbed against Inverness we know it and laughed at so be honest also the refs that do after dinner talks at our functions do like to tell a few stories how they like to give us decisions

  3. players know they only get couple chances to impress at ibrox not as if there playing against top class oposition theres been a few that dont even get the chance ,if not showing anything after 2 or 3 games show them the door will be interesting tommorow ,if arfeild ,grezda, coulabally, dont produce ,time to try young guns , r,t,i,d

  4. Players we should get Rid of …

    Foderingham, Herrera
    …and Maybe Loan Grezda Out? 🤔

    Id also give Pena another Chance and Hopefully Stevie G can do for him what he already did with Tav, Jack, Morelos etc

    Worrall/Ejaria/Coulibaly etc – End of Loans

    Id try and Buy Kent Permanently because then we have an Even Balance for Wingers (Kent/Murphy/GMiddle/Candei)

    Id say we need to bring in 2 CBs basically to replace Worrall and McAuley unless He Plans to use Aidan Wilson or another Youngster then only 1 would be Required.

    My choices would be

    For the Creative Mid/No.10
    …I know this is controversial but id move Heaven and Earth to Pinch Ferguson from the Sheep! 👌

    And 2 Strikers (1 loan 1 Permanent) unless SG plans to use Rudden or some other Youngster then only 1 would be Required

  5. My god Stevo have you smoking them funny fags again your all over the place with those players .It's a football team we are trying to put together not fantasy football.
