With Michael Beale finally gone from Rangers (trust me, we’ll be doing a tonne of post-mortem on this in the coming days and weeks) he’s not the only Gerrard-era rust that needs to go.
James Tavernier, Connor Goldson and a bunch of other broken squad members who will never be fit at this club or up to performance standards are now for us done at Rangers.
We are absolutely sick of broken or under-par players donning our shirt without any fear of being dropped, and Tav and Goldson are two of the utter prime examples of players who have not earned this shirt, should have lost it years ago, yet get rewarded for offering so little.
It is time for a proper clear out, of the utter dross, in both squad and management – getting rid of Beale and his absolutely hideous coaching staff (they were utterly awful) was a positive step but boy do we need done with Tav and Goldson and a bunch of relics from this squad who have little left to give.
It’s not just about those two, although they’re prime – it’s about getting shot of so much dead wood that is still at Ibrox – sadly, yes, we probably include Ryan Jack who isn’t up to it anymore, Roofe who is permanently injured, and a host of squad that are either injured all the time or just not good enough.
The exit of Beale should be a catalyst for real change at Rangers, as opposed to the shocking, horrible and disgraceful summer window we’ve just suffered, the most expensive since 2007 and by far the worst.
We want to see genuine Rangers quality back at this club, players who know how to win, not some loser who’s got 5 in 12 for Accrington Stanley last season.
Is this the catalyst for real change at Ibrox?
We hope so, we want our proper Rangers back not this shambolic apologist nonsense.
We want good players, we want a good manager, and we want to win. We want toe to toe with ‘them’ lot not third place behind St Mirren or Motherwell or whoever is ahead of us.
Too much to ask?
We hope not.
