Three-man shocker at Ibrox and an apology


We’d like to think we’re pretty honest on this site. That is, we say what we feel and we say what we hear. We never make things up. We also make honest errors. And one such recently was a technical issue between an article being published and when it was actually compiled.

Due to a schedule mix-up, we recently put out a piece on Rangers’ excellent current injury status, that the removal of Graham Dorrans and Jordan Rossiter had been a huge fillip to the state of the squad.

Unfortunately, only hours earlier, Steven Gerrard had confirmed at his presser there had been a return to Rangers’ dark injury troubles, with both Dorrans and Jamie Murphy back on the treatment table and Steven Davis’ hamstring issue being potentially worse than first feared.

In short, we made a huge error here, and we apologise to anyone utterly misinformed by that mistake.

To clear it up:

Regardless of exact prognosis and recovery estimates, all three of Steven Davis, Graham Dorrans and Jamie Murphy are injured. We did break a story a week or so ago about Murphy being reportedly blighted again, but we couldn’t substantiate it. It seems it had merit.

He and Dorrans, surprise surprise, will definitely miss the trip to Killie’s new pitch, while midfield anchor Davis is a last-minute assessment. But our money is on his absence from the XI.

It’s a pretty depressing state of affairs really – to see Murphy back in injury hell – sure, Stevie says the turnaround isn’t long but then they always say that. Jordan Rossiter will forever be known as “7-10 days”, even if that actually started with John Eustace.

But, regardless, we made a boob here, and we’re honest enough, unlike others, to admit our errors.

Sorry about that.


  1. Not a person alive who can predict what will happen in somebody's health within hours of a press conference,

    No apologies necessary or requested.

    I am just personally at the scourge of Ibrox from Andy Webster, Daniel Prodan, No leg Kuznetsov, Shutter Sitter Bogsitter and now Grezda, Murphy and Dorrans. Also previously, Naeshame,.

    Each of the above should pass over their weekly wages to Andy Halliday and Glen Middleton who would run ragged for the Bears.

    SHAME in each of them


  2. Dorrans is not part of the first team squad so his injury is unfortunate for him but makes no difference to us .Murphy was reported as injured but then played against Mansfield last week so is probably just in the middle of his rehabbing.The Boss said that the only injury doubt was Davis and thats good enough for me.Hardly a crisis as it leaves us something like 23 fit players.
