RUMOURS this morning suggest that Brendan Rodgers will use today’s quarter final to field some fringe players who are in need of game time.
Usually I’m on board with fringe players getting a run out or lads in need of match sharpness getting the nod. However, it’s the Scottish Cup quarter final and while it’s against lower league opposition – it would be foolish to take the game lightly when you realise what’s at stake.
With a place in the semi final up for grabs and a potential double treble on the menu, there is absolutely no reason for Rodgers not to play the very best team available to him today.
One criticism the manager has come in for this season is his notion to make wholesale changes in his team when 2-3 would suffice to keep things fresh.
We boast, for the most part a very young team who have great recovery time – a lot of our problems we’ve run into is because we’ve not had continuity in the starting XI.
it’s the reason we’re not out of sight in the Premiership, I hope it’s not the reason for us dropping out the competition.
Of course, there will be plenty of fans saying it’s just Greenock Morton, but if you’ve been around as long as I have, that’s a foolish statement to make. I hope the rumours are just rumours and we go as full strength as we can.
