Restoration to the Scottish Premiership has been a dream for Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern since their relegation from the league in 2012, with the punters propping up the bar full of such optimism prior the season.
However, Celtic’s imperial march ever since will leave much room for thought and envy at Ibrox.
The club currently sit eleven points behind their bitter rivals, who have flourished under new manager Brendan Rodgers. For Mark Warburton’s men to close at the summit, he must consider re-enforcements this January transfer window.
While bridging the gap may be rather difficult to do right away, perhaps some well thought out New Year additions can provide a much-needed shot in the arm for next season.
A humiliating 5-1 defeat in the Old Firm derby further highlights the divide between the two clubs, and Warburton should be considering Premier League experience to restore that intense rivalry pursuing the SPL title.
Our Rangers supporting locals here at the Transfer Tavern have grown tired with the impending success occurring across the city, and our Landlord believes that these THREE fringe players would boost the team’s chances of success – if the club could sign just one this winter.
