In an extraordinary admission, Rangers manager Kenny McDowall has revealed that he has been ordered to play all 5 Newcastle players every single match, unless injured.

The orders have come from Mike Ashley’s sidekick Derek Llambias and Ashley ally, Rangers Chairman Sandy Easdale, as reported by STV.

Streete, Bigirimana and Vuckic will be available for the cup-tie with Raith Rivers this Sunday, while Shane Ferguson and Kevin Mbabu are currently still at Newcastle recovering from injury.

Interviewed ahead of that Cup-tie, caretaker boss McDowall was asked if he had to play all the Newcastle loan players if fit enough to which he replied ‘Yes’.

Then added;

“They are obviously good players – they have played with Newcastle.

“I will carry on and do what I’m told to do.

“I was told at the offset that players would be coming in that wouldn’t be my responsibility. So I’ll carry on regardless.”

Fancy that, a manager having no say in what happens and being just so grateful to have the job and agreeing to do anything those above order him to do, even with his team selection, I’m just glad there is no chance of this ever happening at Newcastle United….!
