View Full Version : Barry Ferguson picks his best combined eleven

I HAD a good laugh to myself yesterday when I picked up my Daily Record and read various versions of the best current Old Firm select XI.

I saw my wee pal Joe Miller, for example, decided to pick a side made up of eleven Celtic players. I donít know if he truly believed that was the best team available or if he just at the wind up but it gave me a good chuckle anyway. Until, that is, I took a call from the sports desk and they asked me to pick a side myself for this weekís column.

I must admit, suddenly it didnít seem quite so funny. Like Joe, my first reaction was to name a team full of Rangers players because, well, I support them.

But eventually I was able to screw my football head on and once I did that I came up with a team that beats anything the rest of them came up with the other day. Hands down.

In goal Iím going to give Craig Gordon the nod because of his experience playing high level games in the English Premier league, European football and also the international set-up with Scotland.

I like what Iíve seen of Wes Foderingham but he has yet to prove it at the very top level so itíll be interesting to see how he does this season. You canít even say with certainty right now that heíll be the first pick at Rangers because my old mate Matt Gilks has his eye on the No,1 shirt at Ibrox.


So for all of those reasons itís a pretty straight forward choice to go with Gordon, the guy who has been there are done it.

My full-backs were also easy decisions, even though there is some stiff competition in that particular department. James Tavernier at right back, Lee Wallace on the left.

Yes, there is a strong case to be made for Michael Lustig and an even better one for Kieran Tierney but, for me, the Rangers pair go straight into my team because I want my full-backs to get on the front foot and attack down both flanks.

Iíve got to be honest with you here, I love young Tierney. Heís a tenacious, highly talented wee guy and Iíd go as far as to say heíll end up winning more than 50 Scotland caps.

But Wallace and Tavernier have been machines for Rangers over the last 12 months. The style of play Mark Warburton has introduced suits them down to a tee and thatís exactly the way Iíd want them to operate in my team too.

At the centre of my defence my first pick is Erik Sviatchenko. I like the look of this guy. I like the way he plays. Heís not just a good defender but he reads the game really well and uses the ball well too. So heís in.

My next pick is not quite so obvious because he hasnít fulfilled his potential yet but, having trained and played with this guy I know what heís capable of when his mind is on it. This will be a big year for Danny Wilson and I know a lot of people doubt his defensive qualities but, for me, he has all the talent and ability to become a top class centre half. There is no doubting his qualities as a footballer but working day in day out with Davie Weir and Clint Hill will make him a better defender.

There is a lot more to come from him and thatís why he makes my team ahead of the likes of Kolo Toure, even though the Celtic new boy is without question a top player. But Sviatchenko and Wilson give my defence the balance I am looking for.

In midfield Iím going with a flat, narrow three and the players I have picked are all capable of interchanging and swapping positions.

In the middle Iíll start with Joey Barton, with Scott Brown on his right and Andy Halliday to his left. Iíd have them playing as a tight three so that my full-backs can bomb on down both wings.

Not only can all three of these guys use the ball but theyíre most certainly not going to get messed about with.

Barton has the potential to be the signing of the season. Iíve played against him and gone through some of my coaching badges with him and what I would say is heís a very underrated football player. He has this tag of being a guy who puts his foot in but heís actually a very talented player in terms of how he passes the ball and dictates the game around him.


Brown also got a bit of criticism last year but the guy was playing with an injury for most of it and when he rushed back too soon he got tendonitis down both of his hamstrings. We all have our own opinions but anyone who doubts his ability as a midfield player just doesnít know the game. Heíd be in my team every time.

And then thereís Halliday who, for me, was Rangers best player last season. Heís another guy who can get about the pitch and who can handle the ball. Like the other two, heís also got that nasty streak about him which I love to see in a player. Put it this way, together these three arenít going to lose many battles. I know Iíd love going up against them.


In front of them I need a creative player and thatís bad news for both Barrie McKay and Patrick Roberts who are two exceptionally talented young kids. I rate both of them really highly but I believe they are better playing in a wider role and the man I want behind my two strikers is a specialist in that position.


In fact, Niko Kranjcar is probably the most gifted football player anywhere in Scotland right now. Once heís fully fit he will give this Rangers team what Lubo Moravcik brought to Celtic all those years ago - and what a player he was by the way.

God almighty, Moravcik was special. I still wonder how Celtic managed to pluck him out of nowhere because he was unbelievable to play against. Iíd watch him take a corner with his left foot one minute and then the with his right the next and Iíd think to myself: ĎWow, this guy is different class,í.

Kranjcar is in the same bracket and plays with the same kind of elegance. He does things with a football which leave you shaking your head in disbelief.

And, with Barton, Brown and Halliday behind him, heís the perfect set up man for my front two of Leigh Griffiths and Kenny Miller.

Griffithsí goals make him a no brainer. Heís a natural finisher so if we get the ball in the box for him, heíll take whatever chances come his way.

As for Kenny, his experience and link up play make him the perfect foil. While Griffiths will play on the shoulder of the last defender, Miller will drop into clever little pockets of space and drag defenders all over the place.

With Kranjcar supplying these two with ammunition, my team will run riot.

For me though, Barry McKay should be in the team, he is far to gifted not to include.

So to sum up :

Loves Tierney, defends Brown, thinks Halliday was our best player last year, gushes over Moravcik, picks his pal Kenny even though he's a sub.

And Barry wonders why people laugh at him ?

I know it's all about opinions in that but I can't see how anyone could have Brown in their best xi. He is garbage, like properly sh1t.

Plus I have to say Wilson wouldn't be in it either.

Plus it says a lot about Barry's managerial style that McKay or Roberts wouldn't get in.

We have our own opinions but anyone who doubts his ability as a midfield player just doesn’t know the game. He’d be in my team every time.

Only in Scotland is Scott Brown rated. Would love some one to bring up his positive attributes - by the way, running about fouling people and having a bit of passion doesn't count. Brown is a headless chicken with limited footballing ability.

It's a bit of fun in a tabloid newspaper.
Has he sat on the fence? Probably and included a certain few of their players to balance it out.
But the level of abuse he's taken on here is mental.

I'm assuming most of the first page replies were from 12 year old boys whose uncles told them to hate Fergie, and not grown men who watched him lead us to trophies for many years

Miller over Waggy I can kind of accept, Miller's been there, done it, and still doing it.

McKay though? My god! He's the an edge of your seat player, who when his confidence is up is a joy to watch and arguably the best midfielder/attacking midfielder in Scotland

29-07-2016, 09:40
As for his 11

I would keep his defence.

Drop Brown for Kranjcar and drop Haliday for Rossiter.

Up front thumb heid in the middle with McKay and Roberts in wider positions.


So 4 tims and 7 of our players.

My opinion would be he is the best player we produced in a generation, outstanding for us.

Did he make mistakes, yes.... Do we all make them, yes

He gets a rough ride on here, suppose it happens to most of our great ex players on FF, some are desperate to point out his flaws very quickly, the same people seem to be reluctant to acknowledge what a player he was for us

GioLoyal
29-07-2016, 09:54
Long may the media continue talking up Scott Broon. He's a fraud and will get exposed every time we play them this season. He's more of a weak link for them than Ambrose.

Halliday and Miller won't get in our strongest team so how they make a combined 11 I have no idea.

Juan Ghuy
29-07-2016, 09:56
Brown ahead of McKay :D

To be honest I'm quite happy for everyone in the media to continue ignoring how bad Brown is. It's going to make it harder for Brenda to drop him.

ewankenobi
29-07-2016, 10:32
Don't really watch them often, but the only player of theirs that stood out when we played them was Sviatchenko. Thought it went from looking like we were going to score with every attack before he came on, to them being pretty difficult to break down

AdiCR2
29-07-2016, 10:39

He was our best player in 1 or 2 games, rest of the time he was a 6/7 out of 10.

As for Miller Waghorn - old pals act from Barry I think.

Couldn't care less what he did with Scotland, I grew up watching Davie Cooper get a handful of the caps he should have, then watching John Brown mixing it with the best in Europe not getting a single cap, I have been to 2 Scotland games in my life, once when I was young and stupid the other only because it was a hospitality freebie, actually had Alex Rae and Gordon Strachan at my table. Don't even watch them when they are on tv.

Other than rumours of behind the scenes during the PLG regime anyone questioning what Ferguson did for Rangers or that he is probably the best player we have produced in my lifetime really has bitterness issues they need to resolve.

It's difficult to argue that getting drunk during internationals, even during a season then sitting giving the press the fingers is acceptable for any Rangers player, let alone the club captain and Scotland captain (I think).
It wasn't.
That said, there have been other players who, had they done similar, would not have been slated the same.
However, some supporters take issue with Ferguson because of events long before this.
Him leaving in 2003 after signing a new contract rankles with some.
I'm not in the ITK club but somebody at a decent level at Rangers told me the club needed the money and Ferguson was sacrificed.
Then there was the PLG era.
I would not criticise Ferguson for any part of this.
Especially giving where we were and the manager thinking we were good enough!
The fact that Ferguson went to serial Rangers hater, Peter Martin, with the story is what annoys a lot of supporters most.
Even that though, is just a Ferguson issue.
Other players have made their complaints to the press without suffering the same ridicule.
For example, Davie Cooper was known as the Moody Blue because he seldom, if ever, gave interviews.
It didn't stop him going to the press when he had a grievance with the club over a new contract.
What's the difference?
The Peter Martin factor?
I don't know who Cooper went to but was it the Rangers supporting journalist at a read top?

Not really sure in what world Brown and Miller get in the team but Barrie McKay doesn't.

Patrick Roberts should be in there from the scum as well to be honest.

Not going to abuse our former captain just cause I don't agree with him.

For me though, Barry McKay should be in the team, he is far to gifted not to include.Why not abuse him cause it appears to me he has done plenty of damage to our club with his comments since he left not only that refusing to take part in a charity thing for Rangers causes in Blackpool when he stayed a few miles away in Lytham saying that he did not want involved in these things tells me all i need to know about this guy.

No Waghorn, McKay or Roberts? Jesus Christ. And to think some of our support want him as our next manager. Disgusting.

This board and their attitudes towards Barry really puzzles me. All he's provided here is an opinion. There's no right or wrong answer it's just an opinion like everyone else has had on this subject.

Any time there's a Barry article in the DR that people don't agree with its posted on here and the baying mob are out in force slaughtering him. He wrote an article for the record a couple of weeks ago that was extremely positive of our squad and hopes for the coming season and the job MW has done, yet it wasn't posted on this board for comment.....

Ferguson was a brilliant football player and the best Scottish player of his generation. He won multiple titles and trophies captaining us whilst also leading us to a European Final. He is Rangers through and through. Who gives a f*ck if he acted like a ned on certain ocassions on and off the field? We as a fan base have worshipped other players who were a lot worse than Ferguson off the field.

I didn't even look at his article mate in all honesty. It's the same posters posting the same shite that has been on this forum for the last 10 years.

His choice wasn't great, I don't agree with it, Miller in particular looked like an old pals act but he is allowed an opinion.

You agree that a combined 11 shouldn't have McKay Roberts or Waghorn in it? Jesus.

Totally agree, one of my favourite players.
