Top of the table, but latest double Rangers boost will further sink Celtic's hearts...


With Rangers’ current form looking strong, top of the table secured and only bad luck (and defending) stopping Steven Gerrard’s men going clear at the top of their Europa League group on merit, Rangers supporters could be forgiven for thinking it’s reaching a bit of a peak.

And yet all of this has been achieved without on-form Jordan Jones (unavailable since the Old Firm) and £7.5M mega summer signing Ryan Kent.

It only begs the question of how much stronger Rangers are about to get with the return of Kent in particular, who looked magnificent for the 42 minutes he got, even if his selection in the first place was arguably in error.

His energy, pace, trickery, technical quality and sheer football x-factor was colossal in places last season, and the sample he gave on his return suggested he’d only gotten better this summer since departing.

And with his return to training (and that of Jones), while there are promises he won’t be rushed, nevertheless Scotland’s best team on merit is only going to get better when its absolute star man is back in place.

As we’ve advocated before, we’d love Kent on the left and Jones on the right. The latter is right footed and the two could dynamically swap.

Would Kent, Morelos and Jones not just be one of the most ridiculous attacking tridents Rangers have had for many a year?

It’s only going to improve – Rangers’ wing options have been a little uninspired despite the good results (mostly). Greg Stewart did well in the SPL lately, very well, but visibly wilted in Berne, while Sheyi Ojo remains a player who divides fans.

Where we imagine seeing Kent and Jones tearing up the wings would be something supporters would love to see.

We know we would.

  1. A front 3 of Kent , Morelos and Stewart looks exciting to me with Jordan as back up initially .Stewart has been excellent in the SPFL and gives us a different dimension.Don`t care how he plays in Europe although I don`t think he " wilted " in Bern.

  2. Dont take Jamie Murphy out of the frame either it was great to see him come on against Hamilton he has more in his locker than Ojo plus he also has more heart too

  3. We just need to start winning those 'important' games. When YB turn up at Ibrox, Tav better make things up to us, by being extra shit-hot!I would like Murphy, to get back to winning ways, too.

  4. I agree we have plenty of quality options now. But remember Ojo, who I am not the greatest fan of, has much better stats than Kent had at this stage last season

  7. It's all fantasy at the moment, push Tav to mid right as we all have said and can we have a poll on this editor????????? And Goldston is one of us 100% but he just isn't playing well at the moment . He got the goal at Hamilton but it was a picnic against them so its let him off ? needs to be dropped and our captain pushed in and ojo dropped but it wont happen.

  8. Biggest fine we will get is £250 ,000 pounds if ojo makes less than 37 appearances in all competitions, I'd drop him and just pay it now , the loan thing isn't working too well for us and never will .

  10. playing an extra forward would surely be a way scoring a greater number of goals with come the seasons end the title could be decided who score the most starting morelos & Defoe could do that, but things are going along nicely at the moment

    1. By your logic playing an extra 2 or 3 forwards will give us even more goals. But you know it just doesn't work that way. We have found a system that is working for us and playing 2 up would change the whole dynamic. We are banging in goals for fun so scoring more goals is not the issue although it would be nice.

  11. So you player has been training and medical team say hes fit and player says he is fit how is it an error muscle injury happen and 7.5m is not mega on the European stage were most fans what success the most Rangers are joint top in Europe and 2 points clear and 6 goals ahead in goal difference so all is good could have done better in two more games but if you were to give me this scenario at the start of the season i would have accepted it and been happy.
