Can we NOW say Aaron Ramsey was a fail?
We posted a critical piece on him about a week ago, but in the face of a torrent of pro-Ramsey abuse, were forced into removing it.
But it’s not just Ramsey – January’s window was absolutely shocking.
While in theory we signed £80M worth of talent in he and Amad Diallo, and we do like Diallo, neither has succeeded or indeed even come close.
This applies to the completely pointless James Sands, and Mateusz Zukowski who appears to have completely vanished.
January is a notorious window, but it didn’t stop Celtic signing some talent who frankly won them the league.
Instead our hyped up Welsh superstar and Ivorian boy wonder had absolutely no impact, for fair reasons or otherwise, and that window in no way improved our lot.
Rangers haven’t made a meaningful signing aside Lundstram and at a push Sakala since 2020, with the addition of Kemar Roofe and a few others who turned out useful.
Last year was atrocious and this one not much better.
Yes, we’re ranting about stuff which, had we won last night, we wouldn’t be going near. But one penalty has changed everything, everything which could have been forgiven, dismissed, you name it.
And now we can say with a level of certainly that Aaron Ramsey was a fail.
And it wasn’t even a missed penalty that led to that conclusion.
Sometimes they just don’t work out.
