Stuart McCall: I May Have to Look Online to Find New Rangers Stars

Stuart McCall: I May Have to Look Online to Find New Rangers Stars

Stuart McCall has revealed he may have to go down the online route to find players IF he stays as Rangers manager next season.

The current Ibrox boss is only in charge until the summer, but says he is preparing as if he’s going to still be in the job at the start of the next campaign.

Rangers are currently competing with Hibs, Queen of the South, Falkirk and whoever ends up in the Premiership relegation spot to grab a top-flight place.

He’s no closer to finding out his future despite losing just one game since taking over at the beginning of March.

But he has revealed he might need to take unconventional measures to bring in new players next season.

Wyscout – an Italian-produced platform used to aid clubs in scouting players, match analysis and transfer dynamics – is one way McCall may find potential targets as well as on YouTube.

The Rangers gaffer said:

I don’t think that we’ll be at a stage next season where we will need international scouts everywhere – but certainly a scouting network needs to be put in place.

Having said that and from speaking to Craig Levein at Hearts, they do a lot of their scouting using products like WyScout. You can see so much now online.

When I brought Henrik Ojamaa into Motherwell, it was from a clip that I had seen on YouTube and we sold him for £350,000, so to get him for nothing was great.

You can do background work, but talking personally I would always like to go and see a player. I think that I’ve only ever signed one player that I’ve never seen and I slightly regretted it.

We need a scouting network, but not one that’s based all over the world for now.

Rangers fans – has McCall done enough already to merit getting the job permanently? Let us know in the comments.
