Giovanni van Bronckhorst has confirmed Rangers do not see themselves as cannon fodder in the Champions League and have every intention of progressing either in this competition or the Europa League.
The surprising admission comes after 9 shipped goals and none scored amid three losses, and the Rangers manager suggests things are about to change.
Now while Gio didn’t expressly say ‘this competition’ he did more than hint that he sees third place (or better) as more than reachable, but that he will need to change things to achieve that.
And he certainly will.
We found the next quote amusing:
Yes, you have to be brave, and we hope our manager has learned from his own cowardice in the first three matches, particular both away fixtures. Because, of course, the team plays to his instructions and clearly they were park the bus both in Holland and Liverpool. Napoli was better, no denying it.
So we really should be seeing much better this midweek.
Gio’s promised it after all.
