Steven Gerrard takes massive ‘dig’ at two senior stars

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has delivered a huge slight upon two Rangers men after starting 18-year old Nathan Patterson ahead of both this evening despite suggesting only 10 hours ago that he wasn’t ready.

Matt Polster and Jon Flanagan both have to be content with a place on the bench, for a cup match v lowly Stranraer, and while Polster didn’t make Dubai due to getting married, Flanagan did and played in the friendly v Tashkent.

While we must praise the use of a youth at Ibrox tonight, what does it mean for two seniors that they couldn’t get a start when James Tavernier isn’t even available.

This is an indication of Rangers’ lack of quality depth when injuries happen, and we’d certainly emphasise that a few good bodies need signed this window.

Because the fringe players, in Gerrard’s own actions, aren’t up to the task.

  1. Polster and flanno just aren't good enough glad to see a couple youth team players in but why no Greg Stewart?don't know what he has to do to get a game

    • Greg Stewart has an injury. However, it did make me think how short we are at centre forward with Morelos suspended and Defoe saved for another day. Maybe Gerrard was trying to make a point to the board by putting Ojo at centre forward.

  2. Ranger's lack of quality depth??
    Are you having a laugh??
    This is one of our strong points this season- 2/3 players for every position..
