Steven Gerrard has something of a surprise defensive crisis going into the next two fixtures, as we alluded to earlier on.
Leon Balogun has picked up an injury in training, laying him out potentially for the season, James Tavernier’s recovery is coming along but his chances of making Celtic are borderline nil and St Johnstone only slim, while Nathan Patterson will be available for the weekend but his ban will almost certainly begin in Perth.
Meaning Rangers could travel to meet Callum Davidson’s side without a single RB in the entire senior squad, or even a flexible CB who can fill in there.
Of course it’s not the end of the world, it’s only the split and the league is won, but the manager definitely would rather have options on the right rather than literally no one.
In terms of deputising, the only real option would be putting Connor Goldson out there – he’s comfortable with his feet, and can get forward, but RB is definitely not his forte.
But if he goes out wide, then centrally Rangers are down to just Filip Helander and Jack Simpson as the only available CBs, unless we count Calvin Bassey and Leon King.
Could Bassey fill in at RB if need be?!
It’s certainly resource-stretching at its finest and we’re sure Stevie will be able to conjure something that works.
But it won’t be easy, and we’re just glad this stuff has happened after 55 was secured.
