Andy Walker Has Praised Philippe Clement, but Claims Rangers Need to Sign Better Players

Andy Walker Walker, a Sky Sports pundit, said on the Go Radio Football Show on 7 November that he is impressed by Clement’s “chat” and the fact that he doesn’t make “outrageous statements”. However, he believes that Rangers need to make multiple signings in the winter window if they want to challenge Celtic for the title.

According to Walker, Rangers are “not good enough” to win the title and could need as many as five new arrivals in January. He said: “Yeah I think he is making a difference and I just like his chat. As I said from the day he was first introduced, he’s calm and he’s measured. He doesn’t make outrageous statements, and I like the way he goes about his business.

“I also like the line that he gave everyone that ‘I’m not a magician’. I think he realises this squad probably isn’t good enough to win the title and it will need some additions in January.

“It will be very interesting to see if that’s one or two players, or is it three, four or five? It’s potentially a difficult window in comparison to the summer one, but if Rangers are serious about chipping away at this lead that Celtic have I think they need better players.

“Celtic have got, in my view, a better squad notwithstanding all the injuries and suspensions that both clubs get.”
