Just thinking bout rangers going to dubai for the winter break a know it won't happen this year but what good does it do a mean train for a week or 2 in roasting heat to come back to Glasgow to play in low temperatures would we not be better staying in Glasgow training in doors at Murray Park a go and play teams like alloa Peterhead albion rovers these kinda teams that will be small stadiums in the cold weather and prepare for cold nights home and away in the spl sometimes these trips away to dubai and that are like pre season matches and takes the competitiveness away from the players considering its a mid season break and imo don't do us any good we have state of the art training facilities at the training ground.

Sm87, the winter break proved that it was a total waste of expenses. In my eyes it was a total failure and that showed on the pitch.

Sm87 i agree 1 week warm weather training then back to scotland and play 3 or 4 friendlies in Scottish winter weather keep them grounded and competitive.

Good post sm67, agree 100%.

Was it a different dubai yous went to πŸ€“.

28 Jun 2020 20:22:27
Dubai the way, I’m sure it was nearly 30 degrees yesterday. You’d better be doing rain dances in the morning if this heat keeps up πŸ€“.

There are a multitude of reasons why warm weather training is used by most professional athletes, footballers, athletics, tennis etc. Not many downsides apart from cost. Klopp swears by it however it not the reason they won the EPL and its not the reason we lost the 3/ 4 SPL. We just lost due to injury and suspensions causing a net effect of lost momentum and confidence. We need better players and more of them to compensate when the going gets tough. Last season we didn't have the squad to deal with a down turn over a prolonged period.

Well said TJBB.

Steven Gerrard has stated that he feels the Dubai Trip had nothing to do with our slump since January, it's all about opinions I guess, after all, Celtic seemed to do okay, more's the pity after the same trip.

29 Jun 2020 08:59:28
Tjbb what does klopp swearing by it have to do with rangers he's the Liverpool manager so different circumstances to be fair might work for them but certainly doesn't work for us a think our players need to be kept focused they go to dubai play in the heat with perfect pitches then go to St Johnstone on a cold Sunday on a terrible pitch and can't cope we need to play games in Scotland in poor conditions on poor pitches to prepare for any condition we might gave in the spl and keeps them focused just my opinion.

Why all the expense of Dubai? No harm in going to southern Spain in the winter. Very nice climate but not baking hot. The La Manga resort on the Costa Blanca used to be a destination for football squads. One week there then back to Scotland to acclimatise. Something badly went wrong last twice the team went to Dubai and probably cost us the league.

Weather is hit and miss in Spain in winter but no frost so they could train every day in maybe more appropriate conditions than Dubai also tons of local opposition for soft games.

29 Jun 2020 11:32:45
Has winter break not been cancelled this season? Should fix the issue.

29 Jun 2020 17:30:36
sm87, just thought Klopp would be a good example of an elite very successful manager who has just won the EPL. We should emulate best practice, so relevant to Rangers.

29 Jun 2020 18:40:56
Tjbb not denying klopps a great manager but what works for one club might not work for another in England its more about the football in Scotland its more a brutal game with route one football and teams defending so we need to work on that side of our game we know we can play football as we've seen in Europe but we need to be better at the rough and tumble of the Scottish game.
