Reputable Rangers insider addresses Dubai fall-out rumours

Popular Rangers blogger Four Lads Had a Dream has rubbished claims that an incident at a Dubai training camp has split the Ibrox camp.

There were rumours spreading last week that Rangers’ woeful run of domestic form was sparked by something happening off the pitch in the Middle East.

But despite the claims of talksSPORT host Alan Brazil, Four Lads are adamant nothing extraordinary happened in Dubai to force Rangers into this rut.

In their latest blog, Steven Clifford writes:

“People will continue to say and wonder what has happened in the dressing room, rumours of bust ups are simply not true but it doesn’t matter what I say.

“Players don’t fall out then fall back in for Europe then out again after.

“I wish it was as simple as a fall out then it would be easy to fix. The truth is being demonstrated by words and actions, it’s far more damaging than a simple fall out.

“Every single player is playing for his future, a few have shown it’s too much for them already.”

For many, suggesting that something untoward happened in Dubai is an easy way to make sense of the club’s domestic collapse.

There has been absolutely no official suggestion or report which suggests the root cause of the issue is a problem which arose in January.

Whilst it’s a relief to put unsettling rumours to bed, it still leaves fans scratching their head over what has happened at Rangers in the last six weeks.

The club’s latest defeat – 1-0 against Hamilton at Ibrox – had fans livid come to the final whistle.
