Welcome to the second edition of my review of the squad this season, This one will include midfielders and wingers. Enjoy!
Jon Toral- In the first few games he struggled to settle in and look any good under Warburton, However in recent performances in midfield and even defence under Caixinha he looks a tidy player with neat passes and good vision. Although he may be on loan from a big club like Arsenal, I don’t think he will make much of an impact at Arsenal in the near future. He is a English championship player at best. His loan is obviously up in the summer so we will just let him go in my opinion as we need to look at different players instead of loanees.
Emerson Hyndman- Another January loanee signing by Mark Waburton, Emerson showed his quality right from the start with excellent technique for a pass and loves an assist plus can chip in with a goal or two every now and then. I’d love to keep him but word on the street is he is expensive.
Jason Holt- Had a underperforming season with Warburton and was not the same Jason Holt compared to last season. But things quickly changed under Caixinha with an excellent work rate, work ethic and fantastic tackles from a man who is about 5 foot. Excellent player, well worth keeping.
Andy Halliday- A Ranger at heart, god loves a trier but it just hasn’t worked out for him this season and has struggled in the side, maybe it’s time for him to move on.
Matt Crooks- He’s an excellent player a lot different to the rest of the centre mids we have but some odd reason, Warburton just loaned him out to Scunthorpe who there has been impressive with a couple of goals. He may stand a chance under Caixinha in the rebuilding this season.
Niko Kranjcar- Showed how good he can be three games just before a serious injury ruled him out for the season, if he is prepared to work hard and get that form back then I’d keep him as he is a top player throughout his whole career.
Jordan Rossiter- Gutted for the lad as he has struggled with the mystery injury up until when Warburton left we only found out what was really going on. I’m still unsure if he has a football career let alone a Rangers career hopefully this hasn’t damaged the lads career.
Barrie McKay- Fantastic player when he wants to be but too inconsistent and understandably criticised recently as he has underperformed. I’d give him another chance but whose to say he could mess up again. He’s still young and rough round the edges an might need a motivater for him as he needs to liven up.
Michael O’Halloran- Waste of £500,000 transfer fee as well as a wage. Hasn’t impressed me at all, time to cut our losses with him and say goodbye.
Joe Dodoo- Has finally got some game time and has showed what I’ve been saying for a while, That he is a top footballer and just a raw talent with the biggest potential in the team currently. I really do think he will become a key player under Caixinha.
Harry Forrester- Good player, just not played just like Dodoo has been given a chance Harry needs one as well an who knows might show the promise that we have seen glimpses of.
Josh Windass- There was so much hope and hype (Mainly from his Dad) but the only good thing to come from him is not a bad chant. Time will tell but I don’t think there’s much promise with him.
