Geggan has missed more games than he has played and seems to have an ongoing problem with his calf and Ferguson is completely unproven at championship level.  I seem to remember a Falkirk fan advising us to never ever under any circumstance play Muirhead at right back - made it sound like feeding a Mogwai after midnight.  

McCall has seen fit to hand them all contracts so he obviously feels they're good enough. I get what you're saying, however I just feel we have other areas of the pitch which are more important and more concerning.

Truth being told, I don't think Docherty is proven at Championship level and then we've also got a couple of young boys from Aberdeen who may or may not be up to the task and we can add McGuffie and McCowan to that list as well.

We've also got Moore who's become injury prone and also Forrest who had this recurring back issue last season, so all in all we've got lots and lots of uncertainties all over the pitch, none more so than our goalkeeping position.

Thankfully I'm in the glass half full camp and I'm actually quite upbeat about our squad...............

I’d say the priority now is getting Doohan confirmed and another option up top. I’m happy with our options at right back tbh and if we’re going to add there I’d rather get someone that can cover CB as well as I’m not convinced with Adams and Muirhead right now.

While I agree with what your saying I still it is pivotal that we get all the positions that McCall is wanting filled.

GK- This is pretty self explanatory. #announcedoohan

RB- We have Ferguson and Geggan probably fighting it our for this position. Geggan is very injury prone as we know while Ferguson is unproven at this level. Done well enough at Dumbarton last year but a bit of a gamble to be counting on him to be first choice.  As D'Jaffo says if the right back could cover Centre Back that would also be a bonus as Adams is injury prone, Bell's legs look like they are starting to go and Muirhead hasn't really impressed (Other than his first couple of games).

CM- Murdoch should be a nailed down starter for one of the centre mid spots. Docherty. Kerr, Adams and Bell are all decent enough options however I feel we need a more attacking player in here. Someone that can maybe chip in with 5-10 goals a season.

ST- For me we have two number 10s (Moffat and McCowan) and two number 9s (Doolan and Moore).  Moore is out for the start of the season and Doolan and Moffat are both aging. Think its crucial we get a younger striker, possibly a loanee.

Sure a pumping by the Rangers rejects will do the morale a lot of good ahead of the professional season starting on Saturday .

On a more serious note it's not the worst considering we're not a finished team and the Rangers team had players who were in the first team the last couple of years.

Getting our arses handed by the rangers development offt. 

As for the RB situation, I think it's time we see Ferguson this season, whenever he's played, he hasn't been that bad and I'm sure he can be capable enough. Obviously the main target is doohan before the Livingston game. I really hope that roscoe has a bit of pace on him as muirhead, bell and Adams couldn't run to save themselves.

Yes, I'd go along with all of that.

Regarding Muirhead, I think he could be ok in the right team, however with our style of play I don't think that's us, although with us losing Crawford, Rose, Smith and Shankland, we may not be capable of playing the same style of possession football that we did last season.

Who knows ??

We may not be a finished team but half those Rangers players were boys. Getting hounded 6-1 is a bit of a sare yin.

ETA: Not that friendly results mean anything...

We horsed AFC Fylde 5-2 at the weekend and you'd say they're playing at a similar if not higher level than ourselves.

Friendly results mean about as much as a kick about in the local park. I’m happy so long as we get through them with no injuries.

Oh aye cause expecting more than one signing in a week from this club would be far too hopeful 🙄

Rangers : Jak Alnwick, Jordan Houston, James Maxwell, Danny Finlayson, Rhys Breen, Jason Holt, Graham Dorrans, Jamie Murphy, Josh McPake, Eros Grezda, Joe Dodoo this was the rangers team, aye a few youngsters but it's far from a developmental team

Got to give McCall time, it'll be difficult navigating the loan market this season

I don't think we'll get a RB or a midfielder. I think we'll get our keeper and a striker and that'll probably be it.

Yes Ferguson is a gamble but that's where we're at. We have cover if needed and if it's clear Ferguson is a week link them we try to replace him in January.

Plenty of midfield options, just short up top.
