After a difficult season so far, the Rangers fans here in the Transfer Tavern are delighted about the exit of Pedro Caixinha. Indeed, many of our local Light Blues believe this really can be a turning point for the club.
While the Portuguese and his rather bizarre methods were hugely unpopular with our resident Gers, the man he replaced – Mark Warburton – wasn’t seen as much better, especially towards the end of his tenure. So, that would hint at deeper problems at Ibrox, no matter who is in charge.
That’s a view seemingly echoed by Gers star Danny Wilson, who has been speaking to the Scottish Sun. The defender revealed, after seeing two managers depart in a year, that he believes the PLAYERS are to blame, amid their struggle to keep up with both Celtic and Aberdeen.
Having failed to win three games in a row for months, the lack of consistency has been killing Rangers and Wilson reckons it’s largely down to the player, it seems.
“Two managers have gone this year and we, as players, have to feel responsible for that”, said the 25-year-old.
“So that’s put a bit of an onus on us to go out there and show what we can do.”
Wilson is right, though they weren’t really helped by the decision to appoint Caixinha, who was clearly out of his depth at Ibrox. No matter who comes in now, the players do need to group together and seriously back them.
