I have sources that would surprise many of my readers. One of these has stepped forward with this year’s first exclusive.
Brendan Rodgers only rates five of the eighteen man squad he selected to play Rangers Lite at the weekend. The five are: Sinclair, Dembele, Brown, Ntcham and Tierney.
He only sees long-term futures for these five. He will work to develop four of these players. They are worthy of his efforts. Scott Brown will also continue to improve under Rodgers’ one-to-one tutelage.
Thirteen of Saturday’s 18-man squad are just not good enough.
I realise that this is explosive news. I therefore approached two other sources with close links to CFC. It checked out.
One wonders if Compper is the first harbinger of a root and branch revamp of the squad. Brendan Rodgers has a burning desire to be competitive in the Champions League. He is circa 12 players shy of the eighteen he craves. The next two transfer windows will be instructive.
