Show of Shame: £2.5m transfer call saw Rangers miss guaranteed goals…

For a sum rumored to have been about the £2.5 million Giovanni van Bronckhorst supposedly spent to bring the Croatian international to Glasgow in the first place, the player moved to Palma.

Rangers’ choice to trade Antonio Colak, who scored 18 goals despite playing little in the second half of the season, seems like a bad one by Michael Beale, especially with Kemar Roofe having fitness issues and Deckers struggling with form.

Rangers decision to sell Antonio Colak looks a poor one

Since Colak wasn’t Alfredo Morelos, some of the criticism was directed at him for his shortcomings.

Colak’s performance might become anonymous when his supply of service stopped up, as he need it to score goals.

It’s a very safe bet that the 30-year-old would score more goals than the current Rangers number nine if he were to take advantage of some of the opportunities that have gone to Dessers.

Michael Beale’s insistence on having all of his forwards be able to create opportunities and construct play was one of his problems.

Against the majority of SPFL teams, Celtic has demonstrated with Kyogo Furuhashi that this is not required.

It can make all the difference if someone takes the first shot and scores, or if someone scores the second or third to ease the pressure.

To make matters worse, Rangers paid £4 million to acquire Cyriel Dessers and traded Antonio Colak for £2.5 million. That’s a lot of goals lost and at least £1.5 million lost that won’t be recovered because of the age of the Nigerian international.

Though he could have wanted to have Antonio Colak’s level of clinicalness as a striker, Philippe Clement has assembled a squad bereft of confidence with gaps in it; for the time being, Cyriel Dessers will have to do.
