We’ve seen a few fans arguing how 56 is the number one priority this season, wresting the title back from Celtic.
We agree – but with a caveat.
The number one priority right here and right now for Rangers FC is getting to the group stage of the Champions League, and all that that entails.
As big as Livi is on Saturday, we want the win more for confidence to travel to Belgium with than the pure points haul.
That £40M pot of gold for getting to the group stage is simply too much for Rangers to deprioritise. And it’s point critical we get there.
We wouldn’t carry too much importance into the team selection for Saturday, Gio will pick the best side on the day to get the job done – but he will very much have a big eye on next week’s first leg.
ONCE, and we repeat, ONCE the group stages are (fingers crossed) secured and that massive injection of cash comes with it, THEN it’s 100% 56, and nothing else. Everything outside of the league at that point is a bonus and we will relish the challenge.
But before we get to the group stages, they have to be the absolute key priority. Once achieved, it’s all about 56.
Does that seem fair to you?
