Premiership 20
It was a frustrating night for Rangers at McDiarmid Park. Picture: SNS

Rangers rely too much on non-scoring midfielders

Seven from 83. That’s the goalscoring record this season of the four supporting midfielders Rangers started against St Johnstone. Barrie McKay, Jason Holt, Josh Windass, James Tavernier. Seven goals from 83 games in league and cup. It’s a huge problem with Mark Warburton’s side at the moment. They are relying too much on midfielders to chip in with more than their fair share and it just isn’t happening.

Rangers’ Clint Hill proves that age is no barrier

When Rangers went out in the summer and added a trio of big names in Joey Barton, Clint Hill and Niko Kranjcar, there was a degree of risk associated with the deals. Each of them was into his 30s and Scottish football’s history has been littered with ageing English stars who have crossed the border and received a massive culture shock. Therefore, it was expected at least one of the threesome would fail. To put it bluntly, most thought it would be Hill.
