see we have let a few youth players go including tom Walsh
11 Jan 2017 19:25:55
Can't find this, Kenny, any link?
11 Jan 2017 22:04:26
Yeah Tom Walsh, Ryan Sinammon and Scot Roberts all released. Good luck to them, I really thought Walsh had potential
11 Jan 2017 22:19:03
I thought Walsh and sinammon had a lot of potential. That's more youth not getting a chance at ibrox.

All 3 have been youth players since 2012. So why are we releasing them? If we offer them a contract on the same terms and another team either offers better or they decided to go elsewhere for regular football then Rangers would be due training compensation money for them. Might only come to 100k but are we in a position to throw that away?
11 Jan 2017 23:37:50
I see where you are coming from about the development fee. Parky but good on the club for not hindering their chances of finding a new club. Even 100k is a lot of money for most Scottish clubs struggling to break even each year.
We also would run the risk of them accepting a new contract if they are not wanted lol

Scottie, what do you mean by youth aren't getting a chance? All these boys were on loan to lesser level clubs and couldn't make an impact so why on earth would we give them a chance at Rangers?
12 Jan 2017 06:33:46
All 3 of them were the last remnants of the existing U20 squad who were turning 20/ 21. They were going to be of an age where they NEED first time football on a regular basis and clearly they were not good enough. Scott Roberts was a bench player at Falkirk and Tom Walsh the same at ST Mirren. If they aren't standout performers for teams like this, then they clearly aren't Rangers quality.

They've had their contracts cut short to finance loan moves for toral and hyndman
12 Jan 2017 11:24:56
Shame for them. Sinny had captained the u20s previously, we were in the same school so maybe biased, but I thought he really deserved a chance.
12 Jan 2017 12:33:55
They are of an age to make the cut or move on, simple.
Walsh isn't as good as say atakayi and Sinnamon isn't as good as Beerman. The latter players are younger and have better potential so why hold them back to keep these guys.
12 Jan 2017 12:37:20
Spot on, they couldn't even get regular games in the championship, so they really are not good enough to play for us, but I wish them all the very best
12 Jan 2017 13:14:56
Barry McKay was poor at raith - struggled to get a game - did that mean he wasn't good enough for first team level.
On another note - In Warbs we trust.
12 Jan 2017 13:31:04
Always difficult when young boys let go and wish them all the very best.
Great to see Thompson getting contact extension and look forward to seeing him next season, also Hardie. Would like to see young Burt figure in the 2nd half of this season, looks good and ready.
Would also like young lad Bates get some fiest team game time in the second half of season.
12 Jan 2017 14:02:09
there are not many clubs got the 100k to buy them and if they can't make it theyy have to move on not nice but that's how it is
13 Jan 2017 13:46:37
Are you sure tom Walsh has been released
13 Jan 2017 14:58:16
Can't see any confirmation of Walsh being released. He is currently on loan at St Mirren. Has had 4 starts, 5 sub appearances and 3 goals in the championship.
13 Jan 2017 15:26:25
Can't see anywhere that Walsh has been released. He's on loan at St Mirren til the end of the season and being doing okay. Had 4 starts, 5 sub appearnces with 3 goals scored in the championship this season.
