LORENZO AMORUSO has written off Sevco’s title chances in their first ever season in the top flight – after only 90 minutes.
The former Rangers captain was far from impressed with Sevco during their 1-1 home stalemate against Hamilton at the weekend.
Rangers went into liquidation in June 2012 and ceased to exist. Charles Green bought a bundle of assets from the Administrators Duff and Phelps and created s new club.
Dundee took the dead club’s place in the SPL and the new club (Sevco) was allowed into the fourth tier of Scottish football.
In May 2016 senior officials at UEFA formally wrote to the solicitor of a group of Celtic shareholders to confirm that Rangers died in 2012 and they as a matter of fact will treat the club founded by Charles Green as a new club.
There is ongoing correspondence on this matter with UEFA and full details will be released in due course.
No MSM journalist has asked to see the initial letter from UEFA which clarifies the matter once and for all. This includes the BBC – Tom English was even offered a copy. We are still awaiting his reply.
Amoruso, 45, who was signed from Fiorentina in 1997, said: “I don’t think Rangers (sic) will fight for the title because something is not right yet.
“They need something from the (transfer) market, for sure.
“I can’t see a holding midfielder who can really make a game, as well.”
Amoruso said: “The tactics from Hamilton were quite clear. They were standing back, waiting for the action of Rangers (sic) and then counter-atttacking.
“In the first-half, they did extremely well, I thought.
“There had to be more quality up front and desire from Rangers (sic).”
Amoruso blamed the defence for Accies’ goal from Ali Crawford on the half-hour mark with Rob Kiernan “in no-man’s land” while Nico Kranjcar “should have stayed on his feet” when the Hamilton midfielder turned inside before sweeping his effort wide of Wes Foderingham.
He added: “Most of the games at Ibrox this season will be this way. Rangers (sic) and the manager will need to find a solution to the problem.
“Sometimes it was too easy for the Hamilton players to read where the ball would go.”
