Journalist Slams “Poor Signing” Cyriel Dessers After Awful Rangers Display

In a recent football match at Ibrox, Rangers faced a disheartening 3-1 defeat to Aberdeen, leaving journalist Jonny McFarlane deeply disappointed. He didn’t mince his words, describing the Rangers’ performance as “truly woeful.” McFarlane’s criticism extended to the club’s decision to acquire Cyriel Dessers, a signing that has failed to live up to expectations since his arrival in Glasgow over the summer.

McFarlane did not hold back in his assessment of the game, asserting that Rangers displayed a glaring lack of attacking prowess despite dominating possession with a staggering 71%. The disappointment was further compounded as Aberdeen, with clinical efficiency, managed to score three goals, while Scott Wright received a red card.

McFarlane expressed his dismay, saying, “Rangers were truly woeful today. Aberdeen set up to rope-a-dope and executed far too easily. There’s little to no attacking threat from this side. Ten goals in seven Premiership matches. Cyriel Dessers looks a poor, poor signing at £4.5 million.”

The pressure on Rangers’ manager, Michael Beale, is likely to intensify following this dismal performance. Of particular concern is the absence of a clinical finisher, which Beale had sought to address during the summer transfer window. Despite recruiting Sam Lammers, Abdallah Sima, and Dessers, Rangers have struggled to replace the contributions of departed stars Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent.

McFarlane made it clear that the new signings have not lived up to the standards set by their predecessors. This disappointing trend is not confined to the attack alone; it permeates throughout the team. In fact, the only positive aspect of Rangers’ summer transfer activity, according to McFarlane, is the acquisition of Jack Butland, a statement that speaks volumes about the overall quality of Beale’s squad.
