There is no point in Rangers having a B team or an academy at all if Michael Beale won’t give players a chance – starting with Robbie Ure.

With Kemar Roofe out injured until next season, Antonio Colak still not 100% and Alfredo Morelos looking like he wants to be anywhere else, why not?

The biggest issue with most academy products is physicality, Robbie Ure is the tallest striker at the club and already has a mature physique.

Then there are his numbers.

The Scotland youth cap has 21 goals and 10 assists this season for the B team and he deserves his chance.

Ure also scored on his first team debut at the tail end of 2022 and he would, at least, run himself into the ground determined to grab his opportunity with both hands.

Why Robbie Ure should get his Rangers chance

If Michael Beale wants to get fans back on side, play Ure, and play Alex Lowry when he is fit too.

Stop playing those who have continuously let us down over the last five years.

One league title and one Scottish Cup is simply not good enough with the wage bill that Rangers have.

Hopefully, Antonio Colak will be fit for the next Old Firm because, even at Ibrox, it might be a step too far to play an 19-year old striker from the start, even if Cameron Carter-Vickers will be missing.

Alfredo Morelos has had two chances at Hampden for a last hurrah and blown both of them, barely breaking into a sweat in the process.

There is no need for him to be seen in the starting XI again this season.

Every successful Rangers team has had three or four strikers that the manager could rotate or rely upon and Beale has a great chance to see if Ure can be one of them next season.

There is nothing to lose but we might just find that we have an extra home grown player who can be trusted to do a job – it would also give the fans something to cheer about in an otherwise joyless season.
