Seven men - limited jerseys - who gets Stevie's shout?



With the new season only 3 days away, Rangers’ squad is going through a major summer unheavel.

Gone are a bunch of deadwood, including Jon Flanagan and Sheyi Ojo, and in come Ianis Hagi and brand new signing Calvin Bassey.

But in terms of the squad, there are a number of players who have a chance now to prove themselves, players who didn’t crack it last season for one reason or another, and have an opening to prove they’re worth being a major part of next season’s attempt to stop 9.5IAR.

Ibrox Noise takes a look at players who could get through, some who deserve it, and some who might regardless.

Greg Docherty:

We’ve not given up. We just haven’t. Hopefully this is the season Docherty finally gets a chance to be a real part of this Rangers. He’s good enough, he really is.

Jake Hastie:

Bad signing, average player. That was our initial reaction, and Gerrard didn’t seem to disagree, farming him out pretty quick. Maybe this season he’ll have a bigger role, being a year older and more mature. We shall see.

Jamie Murphy:

Showed in League One he’s still got it, and was frankly outstanding down there. He’s good enough to be a serious squad option and we’d rather he was in it than not. Hopefully Stevie agrees.

Ryan Kent:


He will play, but we hope this season is stronger than last. He wasn’t everyone’s favourite last campaign, and didn’t do enough to justify the fee. We know he’s better than he showed. Time for him to prove that.

Jordan Jones:

A talented winger, this kid has pace to burn and he can score too. No coincidence Rangers scored within a minute of his introduction when he finally paired up with Kent and flanked Morelos. He’s got something and he deserves a shout. We’d love to see the two of them working together.

George Edmundson:


Being honest we liked what we saw of this lad – an excellent left peg, strong in the tackle, brave, and with a spot of culture – we’d like to see him feature a lot more next season. He’s earned it.

Nikola Katic:


Is this finally the season Katic becomes a mainstay? He’s got it all, the whole lot, and he’s a year maturer now. We’d love to see him more involved and frankly a starter more often than not.

Are there any others you’d like to see? Any you disagree with on here?
