Alex Rae: This is the reason for Rangers recent poor form
Rangers lack of consistency could have something to do with the spate of arrivals that came into Ibrox during the course of the January transfer window, at least that’s according to former Gers midfielder Alex Rae.
Rae, now 48, hinted that the lack of game time many of the players were getting at their respective clubs is making it difficult to progress.
While Jason Cummings’ arrival was greeted with celebrations, the Nottingham Forest player struggled to adapt to the Championship and finally when Aitor Karanka came in at the City Ground, the 22-year-old was given permission to leave by the Spaniard.
And Rae suggested that to go from very little action, straight into the spotlight would take time for the likes of Cummings, Jamie Murphy, and Russell Martin to get back up to the required level.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun, the former St Mirren boss said: “One of the key things is these guys have not been playing, Russell Martin’s not played since the beginning of the season, Jamie Murphy’s not been playing either, so I think once you get them up to speed Rangers can really kick on.”
And Rae added that once this happens, “I think you are going to see more of Rangers.”
This all came after Rae questioned his former club’s mental ability at home, and felt that Aberdeen were a better side when it came to being strong in front of the home faithful in light of the Gers five home defeats this season.
