Rangers: Neil McCann issues honest verdict on Sheyi Ojo after Hearts performance

Rangers: Neil McCann issues honest verdict on Sheyi Ojo after Hearts performance

Former Rangers winger, Neil McCann, has been scathing in his assessment of forward Sheyi Ojo following his performance against Hearts on Sunday.

Ojo was anonymous in his side’s 1-1 draw with the Tynecastle side and played a part in Rangers having just one shot on target throughout the 90 minutes with his performance.

If anyone knows what it takes to be a successful attacker at the Ibrox club it is McCann who was a pivotal player in Dick Advocaat’s trophy filled reign as Rangers manager.

Commenting to the BBC after Ojo was replaced by the returning Ryan Kent, McCann said:

“I don’t think Sheyi Ojo does enough with his ability. He’s so quick, he’s direct, but he’s not enough of an attacking threat for Rangers. He can offer so much more”.

Oj was rated as Rangers worst player to start the game other than the culpable James Tavernier with fans on the BBC Sport website rating him as a lowly 3.86/10.

The best two examples are the first two Europa League games against Feyenoord and Young Boys respectively.

Against Feyenoord, Ojo was one of the best players on the park and scored the all-important winner with a spectacular long-range strike.

However, against Young Boys he was guilty of missing chances and not passing in great attacking positions when there was an easy assist to be made, he was the second-worst rated Rangers player (coincidentally behind Tavernier again) with just 4.45/10.

Rangers have been linked with a permanent deal for the on-loan Liverpool youngster (per Goal) though surely performances like the one against Hearts won’t stand him in good stead when it comes to reviewing their arrangement.
