Steven Gerrard’s reign at Rangers so far has been one of upheaval and progression, but success has thus far has been a mixed bag. They’ve won some big games and they’ve played plenty of tremendous football, but there is no denying that the ‘Gers have been below par on more than one occasion this season.
That was a certainly the case against Aberdeen over the weekend, with Gerrard’s men crashing out of the Scottish League Cup as a result.
That’s unlikely to happen, though, unless a few players are sold. Fortunately, there are some expendable members within the Rangers squad.
With that said, if Gerrard gets his wish, surely these 2 Rangers men must leave in January…
Andy Halliday is a solid player. He always puts in the effort, and he’s not a player that you’ll ever catch walking or failing to track back.
However, the reality is that he’s just not of the quality that is currently demanded at Rangers.
He’s started just 3 league games this season, and that tells the whole story. Gerrard just doesn’t rate him as highly as the other players in his squad, and that isn’t an unfair judgement to make.
He’s good, but he’s not great, and he’s just not the sort of exciting talent that Gerrard tends to rely on.
A sale could make way for more spectacular talent.
Lee Wallace’s relationship with Rangers hasn’t been at its best over the last few years, and that is naturally a rather sizeable problem with regards to his long-term future.
Gerrard has clearly attempted to resolve that, but having that cloud over his head has made his long-term future uncertain.
On top of that, his involvement this season has been minimal at best, with just 1 league appearances so far.
Like Halliday, he’s a decent player, but there is no denying that he is expendable, and with Rangers looking to improve things at Ibrox, he’s the sort of player that could leave and few would question it.
