    Charlie McCann M Rangers b.2002

    I notice a Charlie McCann played and scored for Manchester Utd U21’s against Salford in an EFL Trophy game.

    An U17 international with ourselves, a (very) little bit more about him below.

    Looked okay last year for the 17s. He was ahead of Joe Hodge in the couple of games I saw and was overshadowed. Against Belgium, we coped quite okay but Hodge was class behind him.

    As an aside, Jeremy Doku played on the left wing for Belgium the same night. He scored his first senior international goal against Iceland last night. Looked an awesome talent that night so not particularly surprised.

    Struggled more than I expected for the 17s given the reputation he had for United at U18 level. You never really know, there could have been niggles or something. Hodge was without doubt our best player. Keogh had a decent tournament playing alongside him in the centre. Even the young Pats lad, Brandon Holt (I think) was more impactful coming off the bench than McCann.

    Some really good players in that 17s team, very unfortunate that Parrott got injured before the tournament - would have made all the difference. Also if they had called up players like Mipo or Okoflex or Gaxha or Cannon, might have made a big difference. The likes of Kennedy, Idowu and McKinley weren't really good enough and because of Corcoran's suspension, they carried 3 keepers, so they were probably an attacking player short as a result. The bench was comparatively so weak.

    But Bazunu and Corcoran in goal. Obamadele (spelling?) and Sobawele at centre half, Furlong at left back were all very promising. McEvoy at right back wasn't great. Hodge, Keogh and McCann as a middle three, with Everett and Ebosele on the wings, along with Carty up top, who was hardworking and wholesome.

    Has signed for Rangers… presumably Rangers B which will mean Scottish Lowland League football.

    the article on Rangers' website makes no mention of his international allegiance. Odd, that.
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    Gerrard confirms they've signed him for the B team. Still, I can't see them paying £700k for a lad they don't see first team potential in. Or maybe my sense of transfer values is out of date.

    Yeah obviously a horrible sporting institution whose entire 9 year history is steeped in explicit anti Irish racism but in terms of the thread I suppose the main concern is the level he will now be playing at similarly to the seemingly age old issue we have had with young players heading to Celtic.

    I would say they are afraid of a new young player being attacked on social media by their own fans,

    Like when all is said and done = = Is it worth the hassle / aggro of a player with Irish connections playing for Glasgow Rangers ?

    There are hundreds of other clubs you could play for , so why bother with Glasgow Rangers ?
