John Lundstram, once again, and not overly fairly, isn’t flavour of the month, but there’s nothing whatsoever wrong with his attitude, after admitting today that he’s working as hard as he can to get in Gio’s favour, and if he was an Albion player he’d be right up for tomorrow’s cup tie.

The scouser, linked with a move to Boro over this window, has had a bit of a raw deal at Ibrox – fans have seen him in his natural position in the 6 slot, and been very impressed, many admitting they got their scepticism of him wrong.

But he’s fallen out of favour, and isn’t a preferred pick for GVB at the moment, albeit with no Scotty Arfield or Steven Davis, he’s likely to start on Friday.

And while the opposition will hardly be Real Madrid, we hope he gets a bit of a chance to shine and show his true qualities.

And as we also said, his attitude in recognising how up for it Albion will be is a very straight forward and honest assessment.

Because this is a team with nothing to lose, who will come to Ibrox with nothing to achieve but glory, with no fear, and it’s right that we respect them, despite their admittedly miserable SPFL position.

Gio said much the same thing, that we will prepare for this match with full professionalism and plan a system to deal with Albion – after all, they’re pretty much an unknown quantity.

But ultimately if Lunny does get the start, and impress, we hope it opens more opportunities for him at Ibrox.

He’s a much better player than some give him credit for.

  1. We should be playing our strongest possible team and given that GVB made a mistake by playing Sands instead of Lundstram that should include him. That should include Balogun instead of Bassey (and possibly even Bassey instead of Barisic). Only other change I would make is Sakala or Itten for Morelos with one eye on the Celtic game.
