Pedro Caixinha’s overhaul has been discussed both often and loudly by the Rangers fans propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern this summer.
While pre-season isn’t always the best indicator as to whether or not a team is on course for a good campaign, it hasn’t looked too good for the Gers thus far, though they do have an awful lot of new talent to bed in.
Though talking about the new players Ibrox has to offer has taken up most of the summer thus far, many of our punters are delighted about the recently confirmed deal their club has been involved in, one that sees a player leave Glasgow.

Indeed, the club have officially confirmed on their Twitter account that flop midfielder Matty Crooks has been allowed to join Northampton Town after just a season in Scotland. Signed by Mark Warburton, the 23-year-old played only three games in the SPFL, before joining Scunthorpe United on loan in January.
Now, he’s moved back down across the border to link up with the Cobblers on a three-year deal, with the local Light Blues in the bar not at all concerned. Big things were expected of him, though the sight of a Warburton flop departing the club for good can never be a bad thing.
