Rangers’ latest training session; six things we’ve learned


The weekend’s training session at Auchenhowie has now been and gone, and there are a number of intriguing and key subplots from who was there and who wasn’t.

Ibrox Noise takes you through what things we learned from the latest workout at the Hummel Training Centre:

1: Lee Wallace’s continued prominence. You know, for a player frozen out, Wallace ain’t half been a massive focal point of all training sessions this year. Hugely featured in Tenerife, he was again a massive part of Gerrard’s latest session and we really are starting to wonder if he’s going to get a reprieve.

2: Because while Borna Barisic was there, Stevie’s recent comments on him have been far from positive and his absence from Killie told a thousand tales. We wonder if Wallace’s greater involvement is indeed an implied threat to Barisic.

3: Jordan Rossiter continues to work hard in training – he’s seeking a move out and Stevie has confirmed his agent is doing his best to find him the right club on loan, but the ex-Liverpool anchor man keeps on doing what he’s doing in training. Professional to a fault.

4: But there were two massive absences through injury – Connor Goldson continues to struggle with a painful knock, while Eros Grezda badly did his leg in Tenerife. One of those two is a particularly notable miss.

5: New goalkeeper Andy Firth was also in attendance, looking proud as punch with his new gig. With all due respect, Barrow to Rangers is quite a hike!

6: And last but not least NZ’s Stefan Marinovic was still going through his paces – the Kiwi is on a week-long trial, despite the signing of Firth, and seeks a permanent deal. Some may have thought he’d gone as a result of Firth, but Gerrard still seeks to make Marinovic his number two.

And that’s yer lot!


  1. Wallace should be playing….but he wont. Katic should be playing…but he wont! Poor management in both cases. Wake up Gerrard!

  2. Hardly inspiring for match tomorrow.

    Celtic 3-0 against Hamilton out of sight as we to drop 4th!

    We had the opportunity to “bury” Aberdeen at Ibrox (a 10 point gap or so) before they beat us 1-0 – now they are above us!

    If we don’t win tomorrow Sutton’s prediction may be wrong we might just stick at 4th or worst!

    No doubt Board will label this as a success for a rookie manager!

    • Cheer up. We could actually win and go second. Nobody would call 4th a success. Only second would be acceptable this season. I remain confident we will secure second and if they slip and we don't, we will still be in with a shout.

      Sorry to be so optimistic. Speak to SCIM BOB, he will explain to you it's not the manager, it's all King's fault 🙂

  3. Well hopefully a win tomorrow. Rugby Park performance was so like the Livingston loss, lightning won't strike twice!
