Rangers may already be in trouble before the season even starts, with it abundantly clear there are absolutely no viable options at RB at all, and we include currently-seemingly-injured James Tavernier in this, while ‘alternate’ Dujon Sterling is also on the bikes.

Philippe Clement named his first starting XI selection of preseason, and while obviously we’d imagine there’s a bit of experimentation going on, sort of, the lack of any worthy RB at all was a concern, with Turkey’s Ridvan Yilmaz deputising in that slot.

As for that experimentation, in truth there isn’t any.

Aside Connor Barron it was the same players as last season, aside Oscar Cortes, with the depressing sight of Leon King and Ben Davies in defence, not to mention Tom Lawrence in attacking midfield.

Not really an XI we expect much of, and not to challenge Celtic anyway and a complete lack of youth players in that XI – we don’t really see much progress from last season at this point, with very much the same stuff that didn’t work before.

Of course, we’re sure there will be a raft of changes in the second half, but at the moment what we’re seeing line up for Rangers doesn’t fill us with the confidence that we’re on the right path.

At least, not yet.
