Am I the only one who thinks this is stupid? This attitude just sums Rangers up at the minute. Instead of giving the youngsters a chance in the first team when the league has been won since October they would rather keep them in the under-20 side because they’ve got a chance of winning the league. The management team are so backwards in their thinking sometimes its unreal. Surely its better for their development to be playing first team football in front of 40,000 people rather than playing in the under-20 league in front of a couple of hundred.
CALUM GALLAGHER admits Rangers’ coaches have tough decisions to make on when to use under-20 players in the first team because of the prizes still on offer at youth level.
Manager Ally McCoist is keen to utilise as many youngsters as possible in the final few matches of League One.
But he has a difficult balancing act to perform because Gordon Durie’s second string is still chasing a league and SFA Youth Cup double.
Gers will play Hearts in the final of the knockout competition and results this week in the SPFL Under-20 League have sparked new life into their challenge on that front.
As much as it is important for the club’s emerging talents to get senior experience, it’s vital they learn to be successful and there’s a chance for them to do that too in the coming weeks.
Gallagher knows there are incentives at both levels for him and his team-mates and is unsure of who will play where.
He said: “A few of the boys are in contention for the first team but it’s going to be a difficult decision for the backroom staff dealing with that and the youth side.
“They’ll need to figure out where we are all going to be involved and in what matches. They need to work out what is most important.
“The boys are looking to break into the first team but we’re still chasing the league and the SFA Youth Cup as well.
“At the same time, we’ve got a deep squad and I’m sure any number of boys could come off the bench and take a jersey in place of someone who might go into the first team.
“All of that is something which is out of our hands though and we’ll just need to concentrate on our football.”

Assuming he’s not sacked or doesn’t resign before we enter the Championship next season, how long are you prepared to give him if he’s not getting it right? I think we need to be top of the league and at least 5 or 6 points clear after the first round of 9 games. If not, he has to go. We MUST get it right and be promoted to our rightful place in the Premiership at the first time of asking.
