22-year-old on his holidays already: Three worst Rangers players in loss v Aberdeen
By Will Butcher
Rangers suffered a 2-1 loss in their penultimate fixture of the 2016-17 season against rivals Aberdeen at Ibrox on Wednesday evening.
Here, Football Insider names the three worst Rangers players in Pedro Caixinha’s side.
Dismal display. The 22-year-old looked as if he was on his holidays already, after a lazy and desperate performance that was both sluggish and devoid of creativity and quality in equal measure. The Arsenal loanee looked disinterested and with a permanent deal to be played for, Wednesday night’s performance looked as if he just did not care if he will be signed or not by Pedro Caixinha this summer. Overrun by Graeme Shinnie, the Gers should avoid signing Toral at all costs if this is what he’s going to provide.

Hauled at half-time by Caixinha, the former Leicester City attacker failed to provide any kind of attacking threat from the flank. Although possessing plenty of pace, Dodoo failed to show fans what he is capable of. His form has been as inconsistent as his performances and with the summer transfer window and a Caixinha reshuffle on the cards, Dodoo should be a victim of the 54-time Scottish champions. Just not good enough for this standard of football.
Although astute when in possession, 18-year-old Wilson showed major signs of inexperience at the back, which is to be expected at this stage. Perhaps unfairly chosen, Wilson was thrust into the side to replace Clint Hill by Caixinha in what was his first appearance for the Gers. First-team football and plenty of chances in pre-season will help the five-time Scotland Under-17 international begin to hone his skills and provide a decent option at the back this level, but there is a lot to work on.
