Tam Cowan: Rangers transfer business since 2020 a horror movie

Daily Record journalist Tam Cowan has slammed Rangers and brandished their transfer business since 2020 as a “horror movie” after the Gers’ poor start to the season.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side are coming off a poor week of results after suffering back-to-back 4-0 defeats to Celtic and Ajax.

Cowan has withheld no punches and has taken aim at the work of Ross Wilson and those around him at Ibrox after the humiliating week for the club.

Speaking on the PLZ Football Show [21:30, 8 September], Cowan said: “Rangers fans would view that [all of Rangers signings since 2020] as a horror movie.

“If you sat down and did a pub quiz, fans would struggle to name half of those players.

“They had all that money that they’ve spewed on players that they’ve had no return on, it’s scary stuff.”

Grim reading

Over the past two seasons, there have been a number of players who have come to Ibrox and not performed at the levels expected of them, whether that be down to injury or just poor performance.

Of late the only real success stories from the last two years have been Calvin Bassey, John Lundstram, Antonio Colak and Tom Lawrence.

The likes of Ianis Hagi and Kemar Roofe have been blighted by injury during their time at the club and could have been deemed as success stories had they had consistent minutes in the team.

Players such as Cedric Itten, Jack Simpson, Mateusz Zukowski, Nnamdi Ofoborh, Aaron Ramsey and Amad Diallo were simply not good enough to wear the Rangers shirt.

Considering the number of players that have come through the door at Ibrox, it is fairly grim reading the Rangers fans under Ross Wilson’s reign at Ibrox.

Cowan’s interpretation of it being a horror show is not too far off, however, the players signed this summer do need to be given a chance to impress.

Ben Davies needs to be given a chance, as does Ridvan Yilmaz, who has looked promising whenever he has featured. The likes of Rabbi Matondo and Malik Tillman still need to be given more time to show what they can do in a Rangers shirt.
