As argued on RoM, Darren Fletcher has insisted that it was not the team selection which cost us points against Rangers last night.
“We were up against a resilient Rangers side and it didn’t matter who would have played,” said Fletcher. “They would have found it equally as difficult because they doubled up in the wide areas, they didn’t let us cross the ball and, even when we did cross the ball, they had three centre-halves in there to clear it. So, no matter who played against that, it was going to prove very difficult.”
The tactics needed to change and our sloppy passes in their half needed to stop.
