We don't need to use MOH as a bargaining tool for Nicholson. He will be at end of contract so we just sign him on a pre contract agreement.
Why would we want Patterson, he is out for 10 months, unless it is to keep Rossiter company!
Warburton is doing his best to follow Weir in losing credibility after the latter concluded that £100m wouldn't buy a team to beat Celtic. He has more attacking midfield players at Rangers these days than any other team in the league yet he is struggling for a goalscorer, he doesn't have a holding / defensive midfield player and he is struggling for two centre backs.
Perhaps our Chairman should spend more time in the UK or is the team that bad that he can't watch them for 90 minutes. Are we really that bad!

Good point Copland 1, or if there is money available, (unlikely I know), maybe we could buy one that is out of contract in the summer!
Any thoughts on who we could get on loan?

We don't need a right back, we do need a defensive midfield player, if there is #2m available, highly unlikely, then that is where the money should be spent!

Nothing surprises me anymore at Rangers! I guess the theory is that he couldn't play against us but could help Hearts defeat Aberdeen etc. Unfortunately that only works if we can be confident that we are going to win all our games and I don't see that happening with our current team!

Tavernier might be a weak link but he is not alone. There are holes all over the park and at least we have Hodson, (who, defensively is a better player), to play in that position.
There are problems in attack despite the fact that we have at least four players that we deem to be strikers but if you take away Miller and acknowledge that Dodoo is a young player with a lot to learn the other two right now couldn't score in a Brothel!
We have some decent young players, like McKay with real potential in attacking midfield.
Where we are sadly lacking, indeed totally lacking, is in holding midfield / defensive midfield and if we are honest, that is a position that Warburton has failed miserably to fill.
Yes, you can say he was unlucky with Barton, but was he? He knew the guy carried baggage but, when you are lacking alternatives you don't just get rid of someone after a spat with an inferior player! Then you could say he was unlucky with young Rossiter and yes he was, but one look at the boy's injury history with Liverpool highlights that he was always going to be a risk.
Yes, if there is one player I want to see fit it is Rossiter because I believe that he would make the difference but right now we have no idea what the state of the boy's injury is because we are being told nothing by people at Rangers.
If there is one position I would be looking to fill right now it is that defensive / holding midfield role. If there is one position where I would be happy to find a seasoned professional that could walk into a role and simultaneously help steady the defence, improve the midfield and set up more chances for the forwards then that is it. Strangely, for reasons that are beyond me, Warburton appears to be happy with what he has!

At Liverpool McPArland could shop in quality Markets, at Rangers under absentee Landlord, King, he can't even afford to shop at Aldi or even Pound land. In fact I doubt he could even afford the 'barres' or 'Paddy's Market'.

It need not be a negative so long as we have a team that can finish second. Unfortunately there is no guarantee of that. Hearts have strengthened during the winter close down and while, in theory so have we, we have done absolutely nothing to sort out our defensive midfield or our lack of a goalscorer! If MOH goes on loan, good luck to him. Our current management team quite clearly has their favourites and he is not one of them!
18 Jan 2017 12:21:58
There are others that have had plenty chances to impress and don't that are still in the team every week! Not sticking up for MOH but the quality of our signings has been very poor indeed!

Weir was a failure when he attempted management and I have seen nothing in our defence to suggest that he is a good defensive coach however Warburton seems to rate him and I am willing to give the latter a chance.

Someone like DeJong for the rest of this season while young Rossiter gets fit would be a good move. We definitely need better than we currently have!
