Mass Ibrox cull – seven-player axe for Steven Gerrard


Rangers’ raft of exits continued yesterday as a further seven names appeared primed for the way out of Govan following axes on who went to Portugal.

The wires have been buzzing with Graham Dorrans, Kyle Lafferty, Jason Holt and Eros Grezda’s omission from the summer trip, but joining them on the sofas at home are Ryan Hardie, Joe Dodoo and Jordan Rossiter.

It was alleged that Rossiter was given extra time off, but frankly how much does he need beyond the two months already out following his final match with Bury on the 4th of May?

And Joe Dodoo and Ryan Hardie are considered surplus with the additions of Greg Stewart, Joe Aribo and Jake Hastie not to mention Jordan Jones. Both will either be loaned out (again) or sold.

So, all seven of these players were not among the squad going out to sunnier climes and none are expected, according to our information, to join up any later.

In short, for all the ‘mild numbers’ of changes Steven Gerrard assured us would take place this summer, clearly serious work is being done again to get this squad up to a level we conceive of pushing Celtic harder.


  1. We need to get rid off most of the many gks we have it's a bit ridiculous having that many but all the names you have above I agree with dorans a good player but his wages with the amount he plays isn't worth it rossiter I had high hopes for but with a decent bid he has to go aswell

  2. As you say Rossiter is a surprise and Hardie after we took him on the winter break and gave him another years deal .Maybe he`s lining up a move to Celtic ! None of the rest are really surprising .

  3. It’s a shame these lads are going but you’ve got to admit the squad looks a lot stronger and we can’t afford to have a high dead wage bill. IMO with the addition of Kent 55 is not too far away,
