Rangers dropped yet more league points at the weekend, as fans once again left Ibrox disappointed at what they’d seen.
Steven Gerrard made personnel changes after the setbacks against Hibs and Aberdeen, but the alterations weren’t enough to affect an upturn in fortunes.
One of those drafted into the side, was Lassana Coulibaly.
His inclusion ahead of Ross McCrorie was a surprise, but is a call unlikely to be repeated now.
In fact, it could well have been the final time we see the Mali international start for the club.
Did Coulibaly blow his final big chance?
With eight games left in the SPL campaign, it isn’t long until his season-long loan spell is up.
After that, the club could try to keep him, but he hasn’t really done enough to warrant a permanent deal.
His route into the team against Killie was aided greatly by minor injuries to Scott Arfield and Ryan Jack.
Both of those players should be back fit after the international break. Furthermore, McCrorie must be under consideration, given his last Old Firm performance.
Saturday was Coulibaly’s first start from nine SPL matches in 2019. Had he grasped his opportunity and put in a commanding display, Gerrard’s controversial selection call could have been vindicated.
However, the 22-year-old was largely anonymous.
With no shortage of competition in midfield and fixtures rapidly running out, his final opportunity may have already come and gone.
