Glasgow Rangers will be looking to steal a march on their main Scottish Premiership rivals ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
Celtic finished the season with a 13-point lead over the Light Blues after the campaign was brought to a premature halt as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The ‘Gers have already made a number of signings including Ianis Hagi as they look to close the gap at the top.
Football is about both attack and defence and Rangers must sort out both areas if they are to mount a successful challenge next season. Although Steven Gerrard’s side conceded the joint-fewest goals in the league, tied with Celtic with a tally of 19 apiece, the Hoops were far more prolific at the other end (89 to 64).
Matt Polster has deputised at right back after club captain James Tavernier was hit by injury and has proven himself to be an effective squad player when his services are called upon. However, it is fair to say he isn’t the calibre of player the Light Blues need to challenge the Hoops. Indeed, Polster was heavily criticised by Gerrard for his part in Bayer Leverkusen’s third goal in the Europa League earlier this season.
As expected, lots of RFC fans have been discussing the “sweet prince” following a post from the club’s official account wishing him happy birthday. One fan desperately tweeted “don’t sell” as he could be a useful option on the bench, given his versatility.
