‘Rangers need more BRITS!’ – Ray Wilkins reacts to ‘disgraceful’ Europe exit

first_imgFormer Rangers star Ray Wilkins has slammed the current Gers stars for their ‘absolutely disgraceful’ Europa League exit to Luxembourg minnows Progres Niederkorn.The Glasgow club won the first-leg of their qualifying tie 1-0 at the Ibrox, but slipped to a 2-0 away defeat to lose 2-1 on aggregate.They were beaten by a club who had won none of their previous 13 games in Europe, scoring one goal and conceding 41 in the process.The result has been branded by some as the most embarrassing in British football history, and Wilkins believes the influx of foreign players at Rangers is largely to blame.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Wilkins said: “It’s absolutely disgraceful. You can’t be knocked out at this stage“A club with the stature of Glasgow Rangers going out to a side from Luxembourg, it’s atrocious.”Portuguese boss Pedro Caixinha has brought seven overseas players to the club since his appointment in March, and Wilkins believes a more British core is key to the club turning around their fortunes.“For me, the manager has brought in too many foreign players,” he added.“For me, it’s Brits, it’s Brits all the way. It’s the same in the Championship – if you can get good Brits in the Championship then you’ve got a good chance of getting up into the Premier League.“Rangers have brought in a lot of foreign people who don’t quite understand the ferocity of Scottish football.”last_img
