Rangers into the final with a team worth just 13 million!

Hell of a fantastic achivement, fair play to them. Much as it's easy to joke about 'Well they play Dundee and  Arberdeen away which is very different to playing Liverpool and Man City away!' and while that is fair and true this does prove they can do it against some of Europs top teams too so fair play to them 🇬🇧👏 (And for comparison the Leipzig team they just played and beat cost just under 200 million..)

According to google at todays rates that is £11.60M in GBP, even more impressive.

That appears to be what the team cost, not what it is worth. But yes, it is a great achievement.

Fine margins though, they beat Dortmund who were without Haaland for both ties - on his own 'worth' ten times that.  Were he playing, different story you'd imagine.

Credit to them and great to see, though.  This is what football should be about.

Think how much better they could be if they added McLean to their ranks - happy to give him a lift there if it helps 😉

They upgraded with Ramsey in January....even with one leg brings so much more to midfield then McLean.

Scottish football is an easy target, with there being no money,, humble stadia, modest training facilities, etc, but you have to be of a certain disposition to shine in the SPL.

I remember Teemu Pukki being absolutely bullied up here. The latest one being Amad Diallo. He's on loan at Rangers. Cost £18m. And yet Van Bronckhorst has only started him three times.

Scottish football may not be perfect, but it's honest and raw and the fans identify with the clubs, more than they do down south. 

I remember English football pre-EPL. At its core, the SPL is like that.

I don't think they want to lower their level that much

There's still a good player in there, just like many others this season he's been consistently poor. I think the frustration mainly stems from the fact he appeared to be undroppable along with Gilmour despite them both being consistently absolutely dire.

Yeah, fantastic idea for you to drive probably our best midfielder this season, consistently picked ahead of other by two managers and coaching teams who watch him day in day out, to weaken ourselves.

The unbelievably stupid and dense stick that McLean gets on here is testament to the theory that fans should support and let the managers get on with making their informed decisions..

To be fair they were without both their main strikers for their most recent game.

What the h*** is the UEL cup?

UEFA Europa League or as I still call it (because I am an oldie) The UEFA Cup. And I still call the Champions League the European Cup because it clearly isn't a Champions League particularly given future plans for qualification to be via a coefficient meaning somebody like Man Utd could qualify even if they finished 10th in the League.........

Thanks. So it's the cup for also rans. And the cup that threatens the also rans with too many fixtures on top of their regular league and cup commitments so that they can't compete within their home leagues and upset the very big clubs monopolies on them.....

i would Rebuild a midfield without Mclean 

For a midfielder he does not score or create enough for me 

i hear what you saying about him being a championship player and that is where we will be next season so yes i totally get that 

but for me the waving the arms about and moaning etc you have to be a top top player who plays well yourself to do that to others 

so i would remodel the midfield without kenny  just my thoughts and opinion

Ask Dean Smith or Farke why McLean does the arm waving. Its because he's the only vocal midfielder who organises the rest and the only one who doesn't go and hide.

Always works hard, doesn't deserve some of the vitriol and sarcasm towards him. Players and coaches value him 10x more than our fans it seems, and ex pros all seem to agree.

yes i get that also Hogesar the managers love him and they know far more than i do 

but when you do that arm waving organising you have to shine above the rest set a example you have to be the outstanding midfielder the boss of the midfield kenny is not that in my eyes

I dont think that last bits true. You just have to work hard and be capable of organising, football has hundreds of examples of average players but they do the organising and graft. And he definitely has worked harder in games than both Normann and PLM, even if he doesn't have the same quality on the ball.

McLean has been consistent this season which is more than you can say for the rest of our useless midfield. Gilmour largely poor, Normann awful, PLM blows hot and cold, Rupp always injured and Sorensen doesn't exist.

He's noticeably been the best of a bad bunch and can hold his own in the Premier League.

Maddison turned into a player after a year of being kicked at Aberdeen. For young creative players it's actually a good league to go to if you want them to toughen up and show their metal.

They get these players as (a) European Football is almost gauranteed, (b) winning a domestic tropy is almost gauranteed and (c) what Rangers don't spend on transfer fees they are able to pay these players very high wages.

And that's 3 reasons why players of that ilk won't ever come here

Aaron Ramsey is on about £400k a week according to a quick Google. Assume Rangers will be paying a fair chunk of that.

Yeah. Good example. 

Van Dijk is another one. I remember when he joined Celtic. He was always a ball player, but very fragile when it came to physicality. 

He was a different player when he left.

Indeed there are. Tikka Masala was invented up here.

And... and... since TV and Telephone were invented up here, our Phone and TV technology is space age. Really. Our TVs and Phones look like they come from 300 years into the future.*

I'm not saying hes a bad footballer but if Aaron 'forever in a wheelchair' Ramsey can blag his way to to 400 thousand a week wages..
