Alan Rough has claimed that the Rangers group alleged of breaching COVID-19 protocols could include “high-profile” players.
The Athletic reported over the weekend that at least four members of the squad were under investigation after being caught by the police breaching rules.
Rough believes the fact that Rangers haven’t named them could mean that we are dealing with some big-name members of the squad.
Speaking on PLZ Soccers’ The Football Show on Tuesday, Rough urged the Bears to come out and deal with the situation sooner rather than later.
“I’m sure if you ask the Rangers manager, he’ll be absolutely fuming,” he said.
“I would think if Rangers aren’t going to disclose who they are, I’m sure they’ll be a good investigative journalist out there as we speak who can find out who they are.
“I think it would be better for Rangers to come out and deal with it, I’m sure they will deal with it. What leads me to believe that because the names haven’t come out, I think we’re talking about some high-profile players.”
In the same Athletic report, it is suggested that two of the four were Nathan Patterson and Calvin Bassey, the young defensive duo.
Not that anyone being caught is ideal, but we’re hoping that this means none of the immediate first-team were present or caught.
With the Europa League tie at Antwerp coming up on Thursday evening, that will offer us the first hint at who was caught and who could be missing for some time after yet another avoidable incident.
