Maby I'm watching the wrong player but David bates is the worst centre half at ibrox he's a joke.

good catch BearMode91

What does that say about Dembelle - Bates had him in his back pocket last old firm game?

02 Feb 2018 16:32:03
Have to say I am no 100% percent convinced by Bates either. I get the fact he is still young and can only get better with time but if we are to catch Celtic and better them, then I think we will need better than Bates in there.

Decent enough defender but distribution is woeful

02 Feb 2018 17:10:25
Must add tho, I think calling him a joke is a bit harsh.

02 Feb 2018 17:53:21
I can remember when Craig Moore was coming into the team and got similar stick. He ended up being one of my favourite players of all time. Give the boy a chance and give him the support he needs. And remember few of the great defenders had good distribution, as long as he can get the ball comfortably onto midfield to someone who is good on the ball.

Bates who was man of the match last old firm

02 Feb 2018 18:26:14
Never mind his distribution to team mates! All a Centre back has to do is distribute it into row Z! 😉

02 Feb 2018 18:26:31
The big man will only get better but I think he will level out at SPL standard which will be fine although if we want to be playing group stage Europa League football or higher then we will need to upgrade both centre backs and probably a whole lot more in the next few seasons.

We seem to have a settled first 11 that I would like to see 2 players come into this summer but the back up is woefully short IMO, we could be doing with overhauling the squad in that sense and getting rid of the dead wood! (Easier said Ryan done I know! )

On the plus side we seem to have a raft of young talent at the club at present and we need to get these guys tied down ASAP and find a pathway to to the senior squad, you never know they might just be the answer!

I was very impressed with Aidan Wilson when he got a few games last season. Would like to see more of him

02 Feb 2018 20:28:47
Yes me too, along with Atakayi, Andrew Dallas, Stephen Kelly and Liam Burt!

02 Feb 2018 20:33:17
bates is ten times the prospect than their boy ayer who i hope plays against us as cumdog and morelos will run a total on their defence.

The last game big Bruno played did you observe his
Distribution it’s was awful at best. I watched him to see what all the fuss was about and I was mega disappointed
Distribution was crap. It seems to be a common theme from recent Rangers defensive players
Tav has certainly improved
Need to work on defence perhaps if gough is tight with DK
Maybe he could become our defensive coach

02 Feb 2018 21:18:30
Kelly is top quality

02 Feb 2018 21:28:20
RTID enough said 👍

03 Feb 2018 08:52:23
Is that the same atakayi who was outshone by dalcio recently? . Agree we have a lot of good young talented players coming through at the moment and hopefully 2 or 3 make the first team this season.

Does anyone know what happened to Liam but?
