As above except Stack in goals, also drop Sproule for Spoony. Bring Sproule on 15 mins from the end. Francomb in RB is a must for tomorrow I think. Cannae make it tomorrow though, being dragged to a christening in Ingerlandshire. :rolleyes:

Galbraith is injured....

Sorry didnt know that. well Stanton on the bench then.

Mcpake has just played 2or3 matches for Coventry so is match fit. Has to start.

I wouldn't play Hart and Francomb. hart is too slow so Francomb gets the nod from me. More of an attacking RB.

Rangers will play 4-5-1 so we can crowd out the midfield where they are stronger.

Big ask for Doyle to play loan striker. But no other choice.

Have you seen our defence recently?

I hope James McPake will play and make a difference tomorrow but I don't think there's any way that they won't score against us tomorrow, even without Jelavic.

Yeah think Doyle will be lone striker tomorrow, maybe give Caldwell last 15 minutes to see what he can bring to the party?

This team is in essence ok but the one concern is if we are going forward and Soares and Osbourne go up to support they are going to have to get back a hell of a quickly if we lose the ball. Bottome line is Sproule won't be there putting a tackle thus leaving booth and stevenson to keep der hun from running straight through at our fragile defence.

Injuries are going to blight Danny's career by the looks of it.

He played well last week when he come on as a "sub" but he's another player who has not progressed as much as expected.

Good selection OP, Sproule has been crap lately but since were playing Rankers i'd leave him in.

27-01-2012, 06:18 PM
Don't understand why anyone would even consider having Sproule any where near the first team squad after his last few outings , would be better playing one short. So more or less any other 11 will suite me as long as they roll up their sleeves and get stuck in 'causethis Rangers team is no great shakes and a point would be good.:pfgwa

He's scored more goals at Ibrox than David Healy has, and it looks like he will start for the auld cream buns.

Other than that I can't come up with anything.

Booth and Wotherspoon can help out our full backs, and if we can frustrate them for the first 30 minutes or so, I actually think we could nick something here. If Booth starts at LB, I think he'll have a very hard time coping with Aluko.

Cant see Brown being dropped, its his turn in goals and has done nowt wrong. On the strength of Pat looking for more experience in the team and that its Ibrox, I think Hart will be retained and O'Hanlon in for Stephens. Hanlon in for Booth at left back. I think Doyle is the sort who needs someone to play off or with up front rather than being on his own therefor we might see Dee Wotherspoon behind him.

MY TEAM
Brown - Hart O'Hanlon McPake Hanlon--Soares Osbourne Stevenson Booth---Wotherspoon Doyle.
Cant see Sproule getting a start but that might be wishfull thinking.

Looking forward to going there tomorrow, who ever Pat plays they will need my support and its an act of defiance.

Opinions are amazing eh ? If there`s one place I would play Sproule, it`s Ibrox, course and distance and all that.

What I don`t understand are all the people who continue to pick Paul Hanlon in the team, he`s been poor for about as long as I remember.

I would settle for that as our strongest possible team (assuming McPake and Soares are an improvement). I don't see the manager dropping Hart and on recent performances he shouldn't.
