Over 750 Rangers appearances could walk out the door for nothing as Philippe Clement eviscerates the contract record of Ross Wilson.

When the Rangers released their most recent financial statements, club chairman John Bennett made it quite evident that enhancing player trading would be the main objective of the team’s economic plan.

This comes after years of incompetence on the part of the Ibrox recruitment power brokers, who have consistently failed to maximize our earning potential and elevate the club’s ranks with outstanding candidates.

The main focus of the whole issue is the track record of former Rangers sporting director Ross Wilson, who currently leads Nottingham Forest. Manager Philippe Clement has a distinctly different opinion on contracts than Wilson does.

Philippe Clement calls out Rangers contract record

Speaking ahead of the Scottish Cup clash with Dumbarton, Rangers manager Clement lamented the fact five experienced and high-earning first-team options are into the final six months of their contracts.

Interestingly, we actually count it six with the comments probably a nod to third-choice goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin’s Ibrox future.

Rangers might lose a total of 773 appearances (as of this writing) off their roster in the summer for no reason at all, a scenario that Clement has called “crazy.”

The new Ibrox manager will have also dealt Ross Wilson a serious blow to his ego by asserting that the current state of affairs is not indicative of a “well-leaded club”.

The following players are free to discuss terms and depart in the summer: Borna Barisic (224 appearances), Ryan Jack (204), John Lundstram (130), Kemar Roofe (93), Leon Balogun (77), and Jon McLaughlin (46).

Theoretically, Rangers would then need to make purchases to replace them, which is a harsh critique of the team’s insane hiring practices in previous years.

Not only is it a host of big names leaving Rangers, but it’s some sizeable transfer fees too with the first four players mentioned certainly capable of recouping fees at one stage or another of their Ibrox tenures.
