Kris Boyd addresses major Rangers issues as he savages Ross Wilson policy
Kris Boyd has taken a dig at Ross Wilson for the signings he’s brought through the door at Rangers over the last few years.
He was not impressed with the playing XI against Napoli as from the 25 players he’s signed since 2019, only two were named in the team.
Gers were convincingly beaten by the Serie A side despite being in the game for nearly an hour before they were a man down and things started going south.
Boyd said, “Since Ross Wilson arrived in Oct 2019, the club have signed 25 first-team players. Only 2 of them (Sands/Lundstram) started against Napoli. What does it say about the transfer policy when you have to rely on the old heads for a UCL match of that importance?”
This is undoubtedly a criticism of Wilson and he deserves the blame for bringing in players that are not strengthening the first team.
However, it also underlines the issues with the boardroom that they’re unwilling to hire the right people who would make better signings at the club.
Their obsession with being thrifty in the window despite losing their key players has only seen Celtic increase the gap between the two sides.
Rangers are the second best team in Scotland there is some distance between their cross-town rivals, at least when it comes to teams on paper.
Sacking Wilson or Giovanni van Bronckhorst may be the easy thing to do, but few in the boardroom are taking the blame for this shambles they have set up.
A squad overhaul is desperately needed and it was needed yesterday so everything needs to get their act together.
