TOUGH TO ATTRACT PLAYERS
Even though Rangers are one of the biggest clubs in Scotland, the manager Ally McCoist has revealed that he is finding it extremely tough to attract players for the next season.
Rangers have been currently placed in the transfer embargo until the start of the next season. They have also been relegated to the third division of Scottish football after going into administration. Even though they are currently top of the third division standings by a huge margin, the manager has said that players are not willing to come to the club because they will be at best having only second division football to offer next season.
McCoist has revealed that he has already started making plans for the next season. The club have made it a priority to get promoted into the second division over winning any cups or trophies on offer. Rangers lost a number of high profile players during the summer. McCoist has revealed that he had another option but to let these players left because they do not want to play in the third division of Scottish football. The attraction is no better even if the club has second division football according to McCoist. Rangers are currently top of the table by a margin of 19 points over the second placed between.
“It’s a struggle, that’s why we have to take it a season at a time as we try to get back to the SPL. The reason we lost 30 players in the summer was because they didn’t want to play in SFL3. It’s not suddenly become attractive to players of that ability. We are close with a couple but I’m scared of that door getting slammed again. We can’t register anyone until September but I want the deals done tomorrow, yesterday even,” said the Rangers manager.Uncategorized
