PLG has little respect for the role of the captain, and has shown this by handing the arm band to a bit part player who'll he'll probably sub half way through today's game.
Is this the way of things in other French teams or is this just PLG's views? Either way, Ferguson has probably played his last game for Rangers. Murray can't intercede if he ever hopes to bring in another decent manager. What manager worth anything would come to a team where the players can call the shots?
This isn't the answer to PLG's problems, though, and the only way he can turn it around now would be to field 11 French players and move the team to the continent. He seems unable, or perhaps unwilling, to grasp the setup in Scotland, the traditions, the passion, etc. His roots may be in a more technical brilliant brand of football but he hasn't the resources, or perhaps event he ability, to translate that into our type of game.
This decision is going to come back to haunt him though. Unless Rangers now go onto to a sustained winning streak, the fans are going to point to this as the moment PLG completely lost the plot and cut his nose off to spite his face, and Rangers paid the price.
No man is bigger and Rangers and Ferguson will find that out when he's transferred. The same goes for PLG, though, and his huffy temperment continues to damage Rangers, well...he has to learn to be a bigger man than that and, if he can't, he must go as well, sooner rather than later.
