i'm afraid my opinion on loaning out our youngsters is not in line with some opinions, i feel that loaning them out to diddy teams with ramshackle stadiums and no atmosphere is turning our younguns into diddy players, what exactly is the benefit? they would be far better playing EVERY week in our under 20 team and LEARNING something
dontshoot me down, its MY opinion, and the proof is in the fact that hardly any of them make the grade by being loaned in this way

McKay did, he was loaned out before and now look at him.
Warburtons approach is that they get a better playing experience playing against older players and pro's than playing against others their own age. Another thing is that when a pampered player from our set up takes us for granted and the facilities they have for granted sending them on loan is a good way to tell them to find another gear to make the grade or they simply won't make it.

Wee Bill I can't agree going out on loan to lesser clubs make these young players appreciate what they have at Rangers I used to be at Murray Park two to three nights a week and I was told McKay was getting a bit big for his boots and thinking he had made it started slackening off they sent him out on loan to a wet and windy Morton now we see a player who knows which side his bread is buttered on

McKay is the exception sadly. Only today another 3 young players sent out on loan have been released. Another example of Rangers not sending them on loan to improve but to get them off the wage bill

You're attitude to the lower leagues is stinking. Easter Road and Tannadice attract more fans than half the SPL. Morton vs St Mirren pulled in over 5,000 the other week. Playing with seasoned pros in a competitive environment sorts the men from the boys. Just as it done for McKay.

Absolutely agree 100% wee Bill. It's what they call a self fulfilling prophecy. Playing at these grounds with no atmosphere, ramshackle stands and half wits bawling and shouting at you is not the answer.
