Just like to ask how many of you on this site think Dykes, Cosgrove, Ferguson etc will take Rangers to the next level?

I'll start off by saying I think we need to look at a lot better than this caliber of player.

Domestically they may fill in the team and have us a bit more ready for the tougher games where teams sit in or against the hammer throwers however I still wouldn't think that is the level needed to stop celtic.

08 Jun 2020 20:12:22
Of course not.

08 Jun 2020 20:20:51
Stopping Celtic IS beating the teams that sit in and the teams that are hammer throwers, we are already as good as Celtic head to head.

08 Jun 2020 20:36:18
Absolutely they are good enough! We need a core of players who know spl!

Dykes or cosgrove are big boys that can put themselves about! Ferguson is an ian ferguson type player, just what we need!

08 Jun 2020 20:17:31
Those players will win us the runners up prize again.

08 Jun 2020 21:01:19
Can anyone honestly imagine Lyndon Dykes Playing against Bayer Leverkusen?

08 Jun 2020 21:16:06
Another bear you're another one who's just not getting it regarding IF we were to sign lyndon dykes. He wouldn't be our no.1 striker especially for european games. But he would be very useful in the scottish premiership games when things are not going to plan and we need to mix it up a bit. He'd be a good addition to our squad because of this. Why can people just not understand this? 🤔.

08 Jun 2020 21:16:45
We don’t need players like them for Leverkusens etc same way we never needed Kris Boyd for anything other than skelping all the Diddy teams relentlessly.

08 Jun 2020 21:35:53
Dykes has one good game against Celtic.
If he was that good surely he would have consistently turned it on against all the other sides?
Cosgrove's goal ratio is inflated by penalties and his 2nd touch is a tackle!
Ferguson is already racking up red and yellow cards in Dons shirt. I'd hate to see referees treatment of him in a Rangers jersey. Plus he isn't good enough. 👍.

08 Jun 2020 21:36:46
I would have said no initially, then I see re-runs of games where we win a league with guys like Ian Ferguson, bomber brown, hurlock etc. Now I think to battle with teams we’re dropping points to we need to be more physical in certain areas of the pitch. 11 silky players isn’t going to win us the league either. We need a couple of players who can roll their sleeves up and get stuck in, a centre half, defensive mid and a striker. Maybe for certain games where we’ve dropped points in the past, these players might actually be exactly what we need.

08 Jun 2020 22:30:38
Seen all this when lafferty came back that he would mix it up and be good against teams that sit in. It's not target men you need to beat these teams. You need clever players who can find a pass to guys who can make space. Big centre halfs hate playing against pace.

08 Jun 2020 22:53:23
Guys, so the general concensus of opinion here is that Dykes, Ferguson and Cosgrove are not good enough for us in Europe. Tell me then, are the current players good enough for Europe, and, how much money do you really think is available for players. There was also negativity on the signing of young Bassey, and the potential to also get young Fox, I believe that Bassey will be very good for us, he looks an athlete, unlike some of the wimps who pulled on the jersey this season, how many real quality players do Celtic have, I'd say 3, Edourd, McGregor and Forster, the rest are hard players who don't shirk a battle, just my opinion guys.

08 Jun 2020 23:16:22
I would if we can buy the hammer throwers build a team of them just for the season its the only way to play against most of the teams in the league the better players can't seem to be able to break down the defensive teams the bigger guys would bully them into making mistakes a bit like martin Oneil did with pacific shelf might not be pretty but it might give us a chance.

08 Jun 2020 23:48:52
Don’t know if any of you played I played a bit not at a great level but decent . Give me good footballers over be physical players any day I guarantee you the good footballers will come out on top.

09 Jun 2020 07:00:17
Steve Davis didn’t when he got kicked off the park against Aberdeen at ibrox . It finished his season and he was flying before it happened . One reason we lost the league me thinks.

09 Jun 2020 07:02:26
Another Bear, I also played all my life and what you say is true, there is no substitute for skill and ability it always came out on top I saw this throughout my years of playing.

09 Jun 2020 08:18:28
The crux of the matter for me is lyndon dykes would be a good signing for us especially against our bread and butter scottish teams! He's proved against the best two teams, us and them, that he's capable and gave both defences a torrid time. I've been impressed everytime i've seen dykes playing against us.

09 Jun 2020 08:55:22
To say Dykes has only had 1 good game is total nonsense I think he has shown up well in games against is and caused us plenty of problems. As SGL said he wouldn’t be first choice striker but would give us another option and isn’t afraid to get stuck in.

09 Jun 2020 08:57:34
Another bear,

You need a bit of both though especially in Scotland. We have plenty of skilful players in our team but do lack some steel. See nothing wrong with having physical players especially when you play away from home.

09 Jun 2020 09:10:27
I played pro youth with Hamilton then 8 years junior football with vale of leven, I was a centre half and even at those levels I was always asked to play the ball out find a pass.

I was more physical and had pace but wasn’t technical or silky, but I read the game well. The days of lumping ball up from back for rangers are gone so spending money on dykes and cosgrove would b money wasted and they both wouldn’t take us forward.
