Heart and Hand have not held back their punches and have called for the permanent sale of Fashion Sakala after Rangers lost to Celtic.

Given the Gers’ disastrous season, the Scottish Cup was perhaps the only saving grace and they bowed out at the penultimate hurdle.

They suffered a 1-0 defeat to their arch rivals on Sunday, 30 April, which will mean that they will end the season trophyless.

Reacting to Sakala missing an open goal, the club’s official partner wrote on Twitter, “Nah, come on. That’s diabolical. Get us some front players we can rely on.”

Someone then replied asking if he should be sold, to which they replied in the affirmative – “Yeah, we can.”

Summer overhaul needed

If Michael Beale is going to be attached to these players on an individual basis, he will win nothing at Ibrox and another manager will have failed.

He’s got to be ruthless and bin the underperforming players as Celtic are only going to get stronger and they will have a bigger advantage due to Champions League football.

That’ll add to the money coming into the club’s coffers and in comparison to a Rangers side that’s notoriously stingy in the market, it’s going to be hard.

The best way to raise money could be through the sale of first-team players and Sakala, whose deal runs out in 2025, has proven to be unreliable in the past for them.

The likes of Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent are already leaving so they’re going to have to bring in at least two new attacking players.

In other Rangers news, the club are clearly playing a sick joke with their supporters after they made an announcement about a senior player.
