    Return always on mind after painful exit - Davis

    Well I did. Those that left were called rats while those that stayed were called wage thieves. Players were in a lose-lose situation. It was ridiculous and unfair and some of those who stayed must have regretted it at times. If I was at the peak of my career and suddenly found myself with a club with an uncertain future, ending up in the lowest league, facing wage cuts, no international recognition and being spoken about as if I was somebody’s personal property then I think I would have put myself, my family and my career first and, going by the reaction by a number of fans to those who left or stayed, probably wouldn’t have looked back. If the club are then foolish enough to chase after former players six years later when they are clearly on the decline, with some who weren’t even good enough first time round, while throwing piles of cash at them then some are clearly going to pander to the more easily swayed contingent of the support and trot out the usual soundbites and await the predictable cries of “bring him home” while waiting for the cheque to clear.

    I’ve no idea how this relates to my post.

    One of my first posts outside the match threads was along those lines. I said something like we couldn’t slate the ones who left, calling them rats etc. while abusing the ones who stayed and calling them wage thieves. It was an absurd situation. I was then accused of being “one of them” for some reason I’ve still yet to fathom.

    Being TUPE’d gives you the opportunity to break your contract and walk away if you choose. It’s easy for people on the outside to say they’d stay, take a pay cut, play for nothing etc. when they’ll never be in that position. It’s like those posts saying “if I won the Euromillions, I’d give the club £25m”. No you wouldn’t! It’s always easy to spend someone else’s money. I remember Green in the media saying he’d bought the club so he’d bought the players and they’re going nowhere. That would immediately alienate me. Playing for a top team at the peak of your career and suddenly find that, if you’re able to play anywhere, it’ll be in one of the poorest quality leagues in Europe with at least three years of your short career until you get back to the top and all but writing off any international career. On top of that, the club couldn’t sustain the wage bill so major cuts were being touted contrary to your contracted salary. As much as I love Rangers, playing at that level while being viewed as someone’s personal possession and facing an uncertain future regarding salary and career, then I think I may have chosen to quietly slip away while expressing regret at the turn of events. Some went about it the wrong way but I can’t really criticise their decision.

    It’s 150 miles. So if you drive at 30mph....

    Poor first touch from Arfield but not a great ball to him from Morelos.

    Walked right through us there but what a call from the linesman. Lucky.

    Kent not frightened to have a go. That attitude alone brings more goals.

    We have in spells but normally when we’re 1 behind. Be good to see it continuing now we have the lead.
