Boss of the day, Kenny McDowall, at Ibrox expressed gratitude at the three loan signings from Newcastle but expressed the wish that the players concerned had been life-size.
He told The JT: "While any help is appreciated given the weakness in our squad I would, to be honest, have preferred signings that weren't the size of Subbuteo figures. Quite apart from that there's the whole question of mobility, I mean how are they meant to provide park cover on this stand thing. Do they need a giant finger to flick them about or what?"
Given the limitations imposed, Kenny intends to play the three as shown below. "Perhaps we could stick them on the goal line and get in the way of attempts at goal. Fuck knows really. I wish it was time for me to leave, I really do."
