Ok, we called this months ago, to the face of abuse from supporters who knew better, but we always knew Jon McLaughlin would cost us dearly one day.
And today was that day.
Jon McLaughlin, as we have said many times on Ibrox Noise, is miles off the standard required to be a Rangers goalie.
His very CV is utterly mediocre, and Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s decision to make him first choice has finally, truly, and utterly bit him in the backside today as this average journeyman quickly signed for Celtic to give them an assist.
Any Rangers fan who ever truly believed McLaughlin was good enough to be our number one has eminently lower standards than what we ascribe traditional Rangers fans to have.
Will Gio finally drop him?
We think it’s time to give McCrorie and McGregor the shirt between them.
McGregor is older, but still got matches in him. McCrorie has all the potential in front of him.
But McLaughlin has to be finished as number one. As a deputy, he’s ok, he’s not awful, but as the main man he’s punching above his weight at Ibrox.
He’s not the only issue we have at the back, but he is a big one.
Gio, you got this one wrong.
