Rangers assistant Neil Banfield has summed up the current disconnect between Michael Beale, himself and the fans, after claiming Scott Wright as ‘outstanding’ and that the squad they’ve built is strong, despite empirical evidence to the contrary, while admitting he doesn’t have a clue what the formation is.
Speaking before Livi tomorrow night, the assistant claimed the squad and club are in a good place, effectively, even if he’s aware performances aren’t the best.
Wright’s performance was as mediocre as anyone else – he managed just two dribbles, was hooked off at 67 minutes and only managed a single shot off target. To claim he was ‘outstanding’ is literally delusional.
He went on:
Well Livi might have a bit of a something to say about that Neil, this is naïve language which says, without any hint of humility, that we will beat Livi.
Plus there isn’t, as we alluded to earlier, a lot of evidence Beale, or ‘we’ have built anything like a strong squad.
It is an imbalanced squad, a group of higglety pigglety-assembled players which have no cohesion or system.
And on that, Banfield offered the following ‘wisdom’:
Well if the assistant manager doesn’t have a clue what the system is, says it all, really.
This Rangers regime literally ‘does not know what it is doing’.
