Rangers manager Stuart McCall has told the BBC that he thinks that Haris Vuckic will be the only Newcastle player on loan to keep playing for Rangers this season, and that the other four players on loan – who are out injured at the moment – could be sent back to Newcastle.
Haris Vuckic – doing well at Rangers
McCall has been appointed the Rangers manager through the end of the season, and the former Rangers player has taken over from Kenny McDowall, who has left the club.
That move came days after Dave King took control of the club away from Mike Ashley a week last Friday, and it looks like it may be a political statement that the four injured players will be sent back to Newcastle.
This is what McCall has said to the BBC:
“If you take the four lads from Newcastle, who probably won’t kick a ball for us, out of the equation, it’s not as big a squad as you’d imagine.”
Rangers drew yet again over the weekend when they drew 1-1 with bottom of the league club Livingston, and that follows previous draws with Queen of the South, Cowdenbeath and Falkirk.
In their last six league games Rangers have only six points so wins are what they need.
Remie Streete is the only one who has played for Rangers apart from Haris, and he lasted one half in his first game for the Scottish club, but is out injured, and with Fabricio Coloccini getting himself sent off yesterday, maybe Remie should be heading back to Newcastle in any case.
The other three players who will not play for Rangers are Kevin Mbabu, Shane Ferguson and Gael Bigirimana, and like a number of Newcastle’s first team players they are also out injured at the moment.
Haris Vuckic seems to be doing well at Ibrox and he scored in each of his two games and also seems to be enjoying playing for Rangers FC.
With the lack of goal scoring prowess at Newcastle at the moment, with Papiss Cisse out suspended for seven games, Vuckic could have possibly played in the withdrawn striker role for Newcastle, but there’s no chance of that now.
Newcastle have scored just one goal in the last four games.
