News has broken that Niko Kranjcar’s season may be over with suspected Cruciate ligament damage.
This is tragic news as he is worth a fortune to them in wages and his performances this year have generally been poor.
Hopefully there is a chance of him coming back for the relegation battle and Sevco have to keep him.
But the bad news for the Newco doesn’t end there, Joey Barton continues to be the most popular figure out of Ibrox since Craig Whyte… with Celtic supporters!
The gift that keeps on giving doesn’t seem to have a league to play in let alone hold a different status to Scott Brown.
If the Scouse mouth wants to inquire as to which league Scott Brown plays in, it is referred to internationally as the UEFA Champions League.
And the Green Brigade are more likely to sing the Sash and Billy Boys with the Shame this weekend, then he is to ever feature in it.
It couldn’t be a Sevco sad story however without Lee Wallace Grassing on something.
It turns out that the best left back in Scotland and prolific lower league trophy winner envies Celtic’s Champion League status.
This is a seismic change in information out of Ibrox, for starters the story adheres to common sense.
Well may Wallace bemoan his predicament.
He wasted his talent playing below his level only to return to the top grade to find himself wanting.
His is a story not unique to the Newco.
Templeton, Black, McCulloch, Sandaza, Bell, Moshni and a host of players of Scottish Premiership quality, descended into the nether regions of Ally McCoist’s tactical ineptness.
For years they toiled and laboured with a bloated midfield, parking the bus against part timers they should have gubbed.
Warbo cleared out the players who came to Sevco as Premiership players going down to bring The Rangers up and are now lower league players who will never return.
Newco Rangers has been a widow maker which has infused mediocrity into it staff and as the last to carry Sally’s failings, Wallace does and admirable job of spreading this failed ethos on his band of Bosman outcasts.
This weekend Sevco are there for the taking in the Cup Semi.
Rodgers needs to break the equally fetid traditions Celtic hold at Hampden, one whereby we have thrown away countless trophies at the Semi Final stage to inferior opposition.
Sevco are wounded, self suspended, leaching money, lead by absent gangsters and we gubbed them 5-1 last time, is time to horse the Newco and as Rodgers has often stated.
Put down a marker.
