After the turmoil of the 2012 close season. I set out to get Rangers back to where they belong, being the top team in Scotland and competing with the best in Europe.
The first season has went well. Won the league only losing 2 games, finishing with 86 points and a record 89 goals. In the cup competitions, after an inspiring 4-0 win over Aberdeen in the 2nd round of the Scottish Communities League Cup we crashed out to St Johnstone 2-1 in the quarter finals at McDiarmid Park. In the William Hill Scottish Cup it was Dundee who ended the run in the 4th round winning 1-0 at Dens. Although cup glory came when we beat Falkirk 1-0 to win the Ramsdens Challenge Cup.
Now in the 2013 close season there is no Transfer market to look to strengthen the side as we are under a transfer embargo until the 3rd of September. Although Lee Wallace left the club for Watford for £2m. Carlos Bocanegra and Dorin Goian have returned from their loan spells at Racing and Spezia respectively.
Now for the task of looking for big Freindlies and holding on to the better players in my squad.
