So it’s been confirmed officially that El Buffalo will leave Rangers at the end of the season.

Due to underwhelming performances this season and last, most fans are happy to see him go. Gone from worshiped by the fans, valued at well over £15m to now having offers from the majority of the fans to drive him to the airport to get rid of!!

There is major anger at the board and their decision to let him and indeed Ryan Kent leave for nothing after their initial outlay of over £8M for the pair – and for a club where money is a bone of contention this has to go down as one of the worst pieces of business at Rangers in a long time.

Now back to Fred and his exit from Rangers. Most Rangers fans will agree that for the first two to three seasons he led the frontline extremely well and took his game to another level in our Europa League run of 19/20.

He was given reward for his fine performances on the pitch, but since signing his last contract (worth a reported £30K a week) there has been a sharp decline in his performances for us.

This season he’s looked slow and unfit, and that’s not improved under either manager this season. It’s a worry when you’ve got a large medical team at the club, along with fitness coaches, that a ‘valuable’ asset has been allowed to deteriorate & it’s not been addressed.

But even last season he was not at the races for large chunks of the season, yes he had an injury towards the end of the season, but he wasn’t the same dynamic player as he had seen in previous seasons gone by.

On his day he could terrorise a whole back line with his physical strength, the ability to hold up the ball & bring others into play but we’ve not seen that for a long time.

There is talk of broken promises that he was denied the chance to move if a suitable offer came in for him, and he’s taken the huff ever since – not a great sign of professionalism it has to be said. If true it sums up some of the toxic antics we’ve seen on the field if he was subbed off as he would throw the toys out the pram when he didn’t get his own way.

In the early days there was always the chance that Fred would score a goal and then get sent off for childish mistakes, as he always played on the edge – but that left his play to a certain extend & so did his cutting edge.

After Sunday’s performance he simply should be anywhere near the 1st Team, as well as not setting any type of example for our youngsters to adhere to.

So, we thank you for your services Fred, helping us get to 55 & and your goals in Europe & being our record European Goalscorer. You should be leaving as a legend with fans begging you to stay, but the manner of your departure is squarely on you and your ego, sadly.
