The fallout from Aberdeen’s draw with Rangers or the ongoing spat between Craig Levein and Brendan Rodgers were the themes of the day. Liam Walker, East Kilbride, said: “Referee Steven McLean was awful at Pittodrie, it was never a penalty for Aberdeen’s goal as Alfredo Morelos got the ball rather than Kenny McLean. “Once again a decision has cost my club as it appears whistlers are doing their best to deny us second place.” Robert Carruthers, Fife, said: “It was a brutal game which Rangers just about edged but if that’s the two best clubs in the Premiership behind Celtic then it’s a sorry state of affairs. “If you take away the constant fouling, it was two very poor teams.” Gary Henderson, Shawlands, said: “This should have been one of the showpiece games of the season but the quality was … [Read more...] about Rodgers is damaging Scottish football?

The future of Rangers boss Graeme Murty beyond the end of the season is up in the air - and so too are the prospects of many of the first team squad at Ibrox. Even in the unlikely event the current boss is still in charge after the end of the current Premiership campaign, directors are likely to open the door for another squad revamp this summer. Record Sport’s Gary Ralston has run the rule over the players he believes should stay at Rangers for the new season and, if they can get them off the books, the players who should go. Wes Foderingham The keeper rarely makes an outrageous howler and the chopping and changing of defensive personnel in front has hardly helped, but he’s still to convince he’s trustworthy in the long term. He loses too many goals from long range and his failure to command his box at a set piece are flaws, although he’s arguably the best instinctive shot stopper in the league. Rangers might be better cashing in and starting anew. VERDICT: GO … [Read more...] about Which Rangers players should stay and who should go this summer?
