One of the most disheartening aspects of last season’s failed attempt at promotion was the apparent lack of leadership from within the dressing room at Ibrox.    The victimization being voiced by some of the former players has done little to counter that belief.

Obviously, as outside observers we have no real idea how accurate that claim is, but many supporters questioned the leadership of former captain Lee McCulloch & it was rare to see other players on the  pitch try to ‘rally the troops.’  Players like Lee Wallace, Dean Shiels & even Kyle Hutton stick out as being vocal at times on the pitch but there appeared to be a real void in leadership.

You could easily argue that Rangers haven’t had strong leadership from their captain since the departures of  Steven Davis &nCarlos Bocanegra. 

However, Rangers are guaranteed to have a new captain in the 2015-16 season & hopefully with that comes a renewed sense that a positive & driven culture is being honed in the squad.

The candidates to be named captain are:

Danny Wilson: who captained Hearts for the past two season.  He was only 21 when he was named captain in 2013.

John Eustace:  the 35-year old veteran has captained Coventry City, Stoke City & Watford.  Like Wilson, Eustace was only 21 when he was first named captain of Coventry.

Lee Wallace:  has been Rangers vice-captain ever since the 2012-13 season.

  1. Not sure who the captain should be, but whoever it is they will have a hell of a responsibility on their hands helping to implement Warburton’s 3 year plan!! According to the new keeper it is to Win the Championship……….OK that’s realistic, then compete in the Premiership…….?? (with presumably Aberdeen, Hearts, Dundee Utd etc) Then get into the Champions League………….eh, erm not sure about that one? I don’t see anything about WINNING the Premiership to get the chance to qualify for the Champions League and Scotland (for the foreseeable future) only gets ONE place. Celtic will take a lot of catching in that respect and are hardly likely to step aside?
