Now we know why the five Newcastle players who were sent on loan to Rangers FC were very happy to go north of the border – they are assured of playing games for the Scottish club through the end of the season.
Rangers manager Kenny McDowall
Rangers manager Kenny McDowall, had this to say about the five loan players from Newcastle:
“On Monday night I got a call from Derek Llambias saying he had secured five players on loan.” “Three of them arrived and two of them will be coming the next three or four weeks – they are injured.”\
“When I was given the job I was told players incoming and outgoing wouldn’t be my responsibility.” “I take the team and coach the team and I am more than happy to get on with it.”
Kenny was then asked if he had to play the Newcastle players, to which he answered “yes.”
It’s not surprising the Rangers’ manager has been told his duty is to coach the players he is given, and will not be involved in any of the transfers.
That’s the way Mike Ashley runs Newcastle, and why it will be very difficult for us to get a top coach into the club in the summer, with the restrictions placed on them by the owner.
The five players are Remie Streete, Gael Bigirimana, Haris Vuckic who are at Rangers now – and Kevin Mbabu and Shane Ferguson who presumably are the two who will be arriving in the next few weeks.
Mike Ashley owns less than 10% of Rangers FC, but this is even more proof that he is completely in control of the club, because of the loans he has given the cash-strapped Scottish club
And if the Scottish FA are troubled by his control of the club up to this point – they should be even more concerned now – because it seems obvious he is in complete control – even telling the manager which players he must play.
There’s something very wrong with what Mike Ashley is doing at Rangers FC.
Maybe the solution is for him to buy Rangers and sell Newcastle? 😀
