Whilst Rangers fans were hoping for the winger or left-sided centre-half that never arrived on transfer deadline day, former target Josh Tymon was moving from Stoke City to Swansea City.

The 24-year old left-back was linked with a move to Glasgow last summer before a deal from left-field – so to speak – saw Ridvan Yilmaz arrive in a £5m deal.

Rangers were quoted a similar fee for Josh Tymon, however, he has now moved for significantly less, according to BBC Sport.

Rangers miss Josh Tymon chance with left-back call to make

A fee reported to be in the region of £2m has seen the former England Under-20 international move to Wales which is valuation that would have been more than comfortable for Rangers.

It would have been interesting if Borna Barisic or Ridvan Yilmaz had been moved on by Rangers this summer with Josh Tymon available at this sort of price.

Yilmaz needs to stay fit for a sustained period of time if he is to produce the type of attacking football that we know he is capable of.

We have seen flashes under Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Michael Beale but he will have a tough task pushing Borna Barisic out give that he has arguably been one of Rangers most consistent performers this season.

However, that’s not really saying much.

If Michael Beale wants to get fans back on side, he has to be braver.

Rangers maybe missed out on Josh Tymon, but in Ridvan, they have a player who, as we saw against Celtic, will be brave enough to get up to support the attack.

Whatever the Gers boss is trying to do isn’t working and fans would be more forgiving if he is, at least, looking like he is trying to change things.
