Former Rangers star Charlie Adam believes his old side are in desperate need of more British players in their ranks following their 2-0 Scottish League Cup semi-final defeat by Motherwell on Sunday.
The Gers fell to a Louis Moult double at Hampden Park as they kept up their unwanted record of failing to win three successive games since Pedro Caixinha was appointed as manager in March.
Stoke City midfielder Adam, who broke through at Ibrox, feels the Gers need a more British spine to their side after watching them go down in the fiery Hampden clash.
“More British players needed at Rangers ASAP,” Adam said on his personal Twitter account after Sunday’s woeful performance against the Well.

Six of the 11 players who started for Caixinha’s side are British – Scots Ryan Jack and Graham Dorrans, Welshman Declan John and Englishmen Jak Alnwick, James Tavernier and Josh Windass – with a further four Brits on the bench in Jason Holt, Wes Foderingham, Ross McCrorie and Lee Hodson.
Some of Rangers’ best chances in the defeat to Motherwell fell to Josh Windass who is 100% British and the club’s top goalscorer is Colombian so it’s not clear that Adam’s view carries much water.
Most Rangers fans would likely agree that it’s not the players’ nationalities that are the concern but their abilities.
