Dutch footballers have never really been known for being humble, however, you would think that PSV Eindhoven would have learned their lesson against Rangers by now.

Last season, a 2-2 draw at Ibrox led the Eredivisie outfit to think that it was job done only for Malik Tillman and Antonio Colak to have other ideas.

The PSV Eindhoven players have done the hard work for Michael Beale and given him his team talk ahead of Rangers trip to the Netherlands with Stevie Clifford of the Four Lads Had a Dream podcast dropping some inside information on The Rangers Review morning briefing.

PSV Eindhoven provide Rangers teamtalk for Michael Beale

Last season, it was Joey Veerman.

In the immediate aftermath of being knocked out of the Champions League all he did was moan.

Then again a few months later.

And again last week.

After three games against Rangers and no wins, you would think that the Netherlands international would have learned some respect by now.

According to Clifford, the PSV Eindhoven players have gone a step further by taunting the Rangers players in the Ibrox tunnel and claiming that they were going to win the second leg at a canter:

“They think this is going to be an easy 4-0 victory indeed that’s what they were shouting in the tunnel last week; “We’re going to beat you 4-0 next week.”

“They had so much to say.”

PSV Eindhoven probably should beat Rangers, but football isn’t played on paper or determined by how much players are worth.

Veerman was called out last season by Wesley Sneijder and it is clear that there is a superiority towards Rangers despite us having the better European record in recent years.

Michael Beale shouldn’t have to pin anything up on the dressing room wall but those who heard the PSV player’s claims, should be quick to remind their teammates that proving them wrong would make winning the £25m shoot out even sweeter.
