More scathing Ross Wilson fails as Rangers to sell Ben Davies
He's got a fair bit to answer for...

Rangers are to sell Ben Davies, according to official club partner Heart and Hand, after yet another poor performance from the centre back who has been, simply, mediocre as a Rangers player.

Neat enough on the ball but no more, Davies has simply played at Ibrox like the League One player he is, and Rangers will now put him on the exit list to get some funds back in for what now looks like a gargantuan waste of £5M.

He’s not been absolutely horrible, but he’s been well below the level needed for Rangers to go forward, and even back at the time Ibrox Noise was more than a bit puzzled as to why we were bringing him in.

He was a complete failure at Liverpool, who couldn’t even get a place on the bench during an injury crisis, and was farmed out to Sheffield, who absolutely didn’t wish to keep him permanently, and somehow, somehow, Liverpool managed to get him off their hands for around £5M to Ibrox in what appears to be yet another genius move from ex-Director of Football Ross Wilson.

He was signed to replace Calvin Bassey, being adaptable at left back, but in reality only ever played there a handful of times before Ibrox and never played there once in Govan.

He’s just not been up to standard, and that was pretty obvious if you’re shopping in League One and the lower Championship.

Rangers need better than him.

Partner Connor Goldson isn’t a lot better frankly, with just 4 Premier League appearances and a host of Championship himself, meaning our entire defence is basically lower Championship standard aside Borna Barisic, and it’s debatable if the Croatian top flight is any better than England’s second division.

So Davies is set to be sold, and he is one of many Rangers will have to cut losses on and move on from in order to get better.

We can’t say Kieran Dowell fills us with excitement, but what do we know? If he’s even a quarter as good as Nico Raskin and Todd Cantwell, then he will be a thriving success.

That’s on Michael Beale.
