Welcome back to the Rangers Way as we finish off the 2021/2022 season, we had brought in a lot of money from player sales in the summer and had an unbeaten domestic season by January but could we go another season unbeaten in Scotland? Could we go one step further and reach the Champions League final? Let’s find out!
Going in to our sixth season I was excited at what we could do in the Champions League, domestically we are so dominant and will chase our 6th league title in a row this season. However our run to the Champions League semi final stage last season had given me optimism we could challenge some of the best in European football.
So that trip to Wembley was unexpected but what a bloody journey! It has taken me a bit longer to write this up than anticipated just due to higher workload than usual and having to play the game to get up to the point where I can update.
In the previous update we detailed that we had sadly been beaten by Celtic in the League cup final, finished 3rd in our Champions League group and would face Copenhagen and were top of the league by 10 points from Hibs and 11 points from Celtic after 21 league games. First thing is our transfer business in January and we secured a big signing.
So back to business, could we keep hold of our slender lead and see out the league for our 55th top flight title? It was a proper title fight, drop in form, twists and turns and it went to the final day. This blog was given a shout out on a latest Deep Lying Podcast which was great so thanks for the continued support.
First of all thank you to everyone who has retweeted, commented or just read the first two introduction pieces, it is appreciated. The structure of the updates will hopefully be 2 updates per season and should be 7-10 days between updates. We’re up to the newly introduced winter break so a perfect time to update and opportune time for the blog to be starting with the Warburton resignation fiasco.
Welcome back to the second part of the introduction of The Rangers way, in this installment I will look to cover our tactical ideas, overview of our staff and playing squad, finances and board expectations/budgets.
