Hastie confirmed to Rotherham

Ridiculous comment. 

Whether it works out or not Turnbull and Hastie were the hottest properties in Scottish football at the end of last season and picking up one of them on a free was a complete no-brainer.

I watched him shoot from six yards out in pre-season and put it ten yards wide! We already had Stewart & Jones and Middleton was still around. We all knew there was a great chance Kent would return. We didn't need him and I think he is rotten and today (again) he rides the bench for a Div 1 side in England.

We passed on Dorrans, we passed on Arfield, we passed on Mcarthur.

Can't think off the top of my head but I'm sure there were plenty more "best of the rest" that we passed on that went on to do well in the English Championship and/or Premiership.

We could have got them for peanuts and then punted them on for the inflated fees English clubs pay for decent Scottish players.

Even if all of that is true and he isn’t good enough, the total value of his contract will likely be under £2m. 

Once you factor in wages paid by other clubs during loan spells, and loan fees, even if he’s astonishingly poor for the next 3 years we’ll probably be talking losing a few hundred grand. Given the potential upside that’s a pretty small gamble.

I get what your are saying. I wasn't really looking at it from a financial side but more to do with ability. We have five other players on the books at that position. Kent, Jones, Barker, Middleton & McPake (not including Stewart). And then there will be Kai Kennedy to come. All of which I would consider ahead of him. He is still young so time will tell.

I think the jury is still out on Hastie but how can he be criticised for “riding the bench” yet McPake and Middleton get a free ride and you consider ahead of him?

Hastie has at least shown he can score goals at SPFL level but I think we will struggle to get him involved this season unless it was as a back up to Alfie and Defoe, not a wide option.

Strange as I thought he was bought as an option off the right as an inside forward as he is strong on his left foot and had an eye for a goal. Also wasn't afraid of shooting from distance as he showed at Motherwell with some cracking goals from distance.

This is mental

He's 20 years old and had only played like 65 games when he joined us. He may well be utter pish and never make it with us but you've come to that conclusion on the back of a 60 min performance in a comfortable win? 

That's crazy

A lad that had just turned 20 written off after one game.  It’s mental on here.

The highlights I seen from him at Motherwell are exactly that, due to him being quite big physically I think he would offer a different option from the bench but I do think our squad is too large so maybe another 6 months on loan would help him.

Hastie, Rudden, Mcpake & Middleton have went on loan and can get a game at the clubs. Only Kelly & McCrorie (GK) have succeeded. Maybe we are loaning to the wrong clubs (Hibs)

Bullshit.....even a 1 legged man wouldn't be able to kick the ball 10yrds wide from 6yrds....you would need to be totally facing away from the goal to even attempt it....if you don't rate the lad then that's fair enough but don't make shite up to suit your agenda is garage

It was the first friendly against Oxford. I don't think he really got a look after that game (maybe). I have nothing against Hastie or any of our players for that matter. I just don't think he is good enough for Rangers.

Likewise. 

Just isn’t on the same level as our current squad.

Hastie is still a kid and he showed more than enough towards the end of last season for Motherwell to show that he's got potential.

But he ain't goan be a first team regular any time soon but time is on his side.

Not really. 

Either have ‘it’ to play for Rangers or you don’t. Don’t think he does. Happy to be wrong.

Where is everyone getting all of the footage of him playing that they are basing their decision that he is shite from?

How do you decide whether he has "got it" to play for Rangers or not?

I'm pleased our back room staff don't pay any attention to the stuff that's posted on here :pipe:
