Fashion Sakala changes his mind on former Rangers manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst
Fashion speaking (about himself)_ before the infamous Celtic match.....

Fashion Sakala has become the latest Rangers player to express an opinion on Giovanni van Bronckhorst, and we have to say his words were dignified, and he’s clearly grown up.

The last time Fashion spoke about his manager, at the time the Dutchman, he was far from happy, and frankly whined about his lot and what the boss wanted from him. He complained he’s a striker, and wasn’t settling for playing on the wing – he inferred he’d consider leaving if this situation continued.

In short, very entitled, very bratty, and did himself absolutely no favours.

But today?

He’s been reinvented by Michael Beale’s hybrid winger system, whereby two false flankers, playing really as marauding 10s, surround a striker and swap slots frequently. This gives him the chance to use his pace, and to play as a pseudo striker as well. Which keeps him happy.

And on Gio, his tone has definitely changed.

He said:

“It meant a lot. Obviously I appreciate the former manager. I have nothing to blame him about, I learnt a lot from him.”

A wee bit fickle there Fashion mate, you were vividly blaming him last year, but hey ho, that’s the mindset of a footballer – when things are good, you can be magnanimous, but when things aren’t in your favour, you’ll hurl whines and complaints.

Regulars will know we are now ‘dedicated followers of Fashion’ these days ourselves, to add to the fickle bracket, but we will always be honest and call out the truth and the past.

But we’re glad the kid seems to be growing up a bit, which includes a few crowd pleasing trolls of the other mob for good measure. Always a lot of fun seeing our players wind up the opponent now and then, and watching them open-mouthed in outrage at the sheer audacity.

He’s earned the right to talk trash, because he’s doing it on the pitch now – if he can do it on the pitch on Sunday, he’ll completely seal his place in fans’ hearts and may just write himself into the history books.

He only wants his place in the Hall of Fame, after all…
