It would have to be Red Bull Rangers! Forget Glasgow!

We need a holding midfield player / defensive midfield more than we need a right back unless young Rossiter is ready to return!

If he goes to Chelsea he could languish in the reserves for years or even disappear off the radar altogether. At least at Rangers he might have a chance of first team football and a bigger pay day in a couple of years so long as he can force his way into the team.

I think I might just settle for having Scouts!

I doubt that Crooks has been fully match fit so far this season and I hope that he is back a better player and fully fit for the start of next season. With Crooks and Rossiter fully fit then we have two better players than Halliday in the Holding role and Halliday can prove himself in the actual position.
This failure to find a proper Holding Midfield player of quality has been one of Warburton's major failings!

Let's see what our results are like in the second half of the season against Aberdeen, Hearts and St Johnstone, as well as the other teams in this league. If budgets really make a difference then we should beat all these teams with goals to spare!
For me it isn't the budget it is how you deploy it and right now we have an awful lot of players that are seriously underperforming in budgetary terms or, more likely are just not good enough.

The problem for me is that we still don't have a defensive midfield player and we haven't had one since Warburton arrived and the John Eustace saga ended abruptly with the player failing to sign 'for personal reasons'. Finding another defensive midfield player or holding midfield player should have been the priority and while Barton might be construed to have been the answer we all know what happened there and young Rossiter is permanently on the injury list! While the latter situation is unfortunate we simply cannot expect to win games against half decent opposition or better with what we have and right now, unless he is going to play one of the loanees in that position or by some miracle, Rossiter is fit then Warburton's priority should surely be to bring in a player for this role during January.

Have you seen our holding midfield, it would be pretty difficult since we don't have one! One has just gone on loan to Scunthorpe and the other has been injured almost since the day he arrived and despite being told a month ago that he would be fit in two weeks Rossiter is no where to be seen!
We are left with a haphazard holding midfield player that lacks guile, has a poor record of completed passes, (and many of the passes retrieved by the intended recipient has to put himself at risk because the pass is generally too short) .
In such circumstances it is difficult to be overly critical of the defence when they are offered absolutely no support by that particular aspect of their midfield and just to add insult we give the ball away far too much in that area. So while I can agree that our attack is not scoring goals we need to sort out our midfield as the major priority.

Super cooper, I don't think its a case of not fathoming what you are saying or where we are. Most of the support expected to lose today but what I can't understand is why give Senderos a run out when the young lad that we signed from Raith Rovers could have had game time alongside Hill.
The other major frustration is that Warburton continuously fields players that are consistently poor and it does't matter how poor they are they are still in the team the following week!
Everyone wants Warburton to succeed, not all of us trust King but that is just a case of opinions however poor defending and a total lack of a Holding midfield player / defensive midfield player is factual!

Surely it would have been better to give the young lad that we got from Raith Rovers some game time instead of Senderos!
