My Rangers XI

18 Feb

So now for my Rangers XI.  It’s again made up of players I’ve seen in my lifetime, the formation is 4-4-2.

GK: Stefan Klos

Not an easy decision but he just gets the nod ahead of Andy Goram.  A top-class keeper who won the Champions League with Dortmund yet, amazingly, was never capped by Germany.

RB: Gary Stevens

A consistent performer and England international. 

CB: Richard Gough

Inspirational captain of Rangers dominant team of the 90’s.  Also captain of this side.

CB: Carlos Cuellar

Played at Ibrox more recently, an uncompromising defender who put in some outstanding performances during his short time in Scotland.

LB: Artur Numan

Dutch international and one of the most consistent performers during Dick Advocaat’s reign.

RM: Trevor Steven

More successful in his first spell at the club.  Fine passer and cross of the ball, formed an excellent partnership with Stevens at Everton and Rangers.

CM: Ian Durrant

Dynamic box-to-box midfielder who was always a goal threat.  Would surely have gone onto greater things in England or abroad had he not sustained a horrific knee injury in the infamous clash with Aberdeen.

CM: Giovanni Van Bronckhorst

A class act – a sweet left foot and very capable when shooting from distance.  Enjoyed a great career, moving onto Arsenal and Barcelona.

LM: Davie Cooper

One of the easier choices.  Gifted wide player who beat opponents through skill, rather than pace.  Could also strike a ball with a fair bit of power.

STR: Ally McCoist

Another obvious selection.  Record-breaking goalscorer who thrived in Old Firm encounters.

STR: Mark Hateley

The ideal partner for McCoist – powerful, good in the air and not bad on the ground either.
