Ex-Rangers forward Sam Lammers’ arrogance continues after effectively blaming Michael Beale and Philippe Clement for his epic fail at Ibrox.

Arguably the most incompetent striker we’ve seen in the shirt since the halcyon days of Franny Jeffers and Egil Ostenstad, Lammers, despite a surprisingly promising preseason, was exposed for being completely out of his depth when the competitive action started, missing some staggering chances and not offering anything convincing anywhere else to justify them.

But the now-Utrecht forward, who in fairness is having a better time in Holland, has taken to the media to defend himself and basically blames Beale and Clement for his own incompetence.

He said:

“I played more at No.10 at Rangers. I didn’t actually play a single match there as a striker. At Rangers, I suddenly ended up on the bench and then I didn’t even get on anymore. And then you are suddenly told that you can leave on loan. So by then you already know enough.”

So, in his dozens of appearances, he wasn’t once the striker?

We admit he did usually play deeper, but if we look at the numbers, well, he managed 42 shots, and only 15 of them were actually on target.

Which suggests he certainly played enough and had enough scoring chances but just wasn’t clinical enough to put them away. 2 goals in his Rangers career.

No, this is just a player who can’t actually hold his hands up and admit he wasn’t good enough for our club, and instead whines about the position he claims he played, and by virtue of that, the managers who selected him there.

This is a player who, as a striker before joining Rangers, had 8 goals in 4+ years.

Why Beale signed him we’ll never know, and fair play, he’s doing better back home in Holland, but he’s had four years to prove himself in other leagues outside his home nation and completely failed.

But no, blame Big Phil.
