Greg Docherty all ready getting plaudits

Honestly think we will regret letting him go especially so cheap

Best of luck to him.

The thing with Docherty and McCrorie isn’t that they were in any way ‘bad players’ or not good enough, it was always that their actual style of play doesn’t fit into the way we play. Docherty said it himself in an interview just after he left. Everyone at Rangers rated him as a player and thought his effort and work rate were great, same with McCrorie. However we are trying to develop a very possession based style where we control the ball and wear teams down. This means Gerrard wants players who’s game is all about being comfortable in possession and being able to hold onto the ball. Look at the way Kamara, Davis and Jack play, holding onto the ball, turning away from players and moving it on, very rarely giving it away. Unfortunately when you look at both Docherty and McCrorie that’s the one weakness they both had. Both gave tremendous effort, are good in the tackle and are very direct type of players, but that doesn’t fit our game. I have no doubt they will both do well at Hull and Aberdeen respectively due to the fact that they both play a more direct style. McCrorie will thrive in that Aberdeen team who are all about getting in the oppositions faces, putting in hard tackles and getting the ball forward very directly, doesn’t mean he would of been able to fit in to our style of play though.
This is also why I feel Jones won’t work for us. He again is very direct, all about chasing balls in behind defences, something he’d rarely be able to do with us as teams set up with so many players behind us. Barker (for all his faults) is more comfortable on the ball and playing that possession game, which is why he’s getting a game ahead of Jones.
Docherty and McCrorie will both probably go on to bigger clubs for more money (hopefully we have decent sell on fees in their deals) and it would of been good to get more for them but the fact is they weren’t playing for us and they needed to go and play to increase their values. (Plus we can only accept offers that are put in front of us, if they were the only offers in the table then it’s either accept them or have them sitting in the stands with us taking wages)

Good post gers1978. I still think mccrorie could have had a role to play for us. He'd have been a brilliant backup to Jack.

I don’t really disagree with you Mr Grumpy, however we have to take the individual players wishes into account as well. McCrorie hasn’t really played for us in two seasons and he has his career to think about. As Rangers fans we’d all love every decent player to stay at the club (especially the home grown ones that are also supporters) . But at his age he’s not going to be willing to stay with us and play 5 or 6 games a season just cause he’s a fan when he could be playing every game elsewhere and developing himself.

a very balanced G78 and view and in my opinion, spot on. The same could be said for Katic and Edmundson - both young and full of energy, but Goldson (not my fav) and Helander seem very composed and happy with he ball at their feet.

hes playing down in league 1. he simply was never good enough for us.
