Rangers legend Barry Ferguson has dismissed suggestions that the Light Blues’ transfer window was a ‘failure’ and thinks the Old Firm win at Ibrox categorically ended the notion the Gers’ can’t perform in front of a crowd.
The Light Blues added Fashion Sakala, John Lundstram, Nnamdi Ofoborh and Juninho Bacuno to their squad while keeping hold of all of their key players and Ferguson can’t understand why that would be a “problem” for Rangers.
Sunday’s Ibrox win over Celtic has restored faith
“Rangers transfer window a failure? You’re having a laugh!” Ferguson told the Daily Record.
“I’ve heard that accusation being thrown at the club simply because they never made a big sale but these are the same folk who claimed Steven Gerrard’s side couldn’t perform in front of a crowd.
“Sunday’s derby win categorically put that one to bed. And I’m confident they’ll get the same ruthless response to their claims this window has been a disaster come the end of the season.
“How can keeping hold of every one of the key men that delivered a record-breaking title be a problem? Not to mention adding new faces in almost every department on top of it.”
The Light Blues have had a difficult start to the season but appear to have turned a corner following the Old Firm win.
Beating their Old Firm rivals has handed the momentum to Rangers in the title race and puts the pressure on new Parkhead boss Ange Postecoglou.
There was never likely to be full-scale rebuilding at Ibrox this summer after romping to the title so adding quality, where it was needed, can’t possibly be construed as a bad thing.
