Three reasons Barrie McKay should stay put at Rangers
No substitute for first team football
McKay made his debut in 2011 when he was just 17 years of age but most of his first team experience has come in the lower leagues of Scottish football. This is in fact his first full season in the Scottish top-flight and that may be the key reason he’s shown inconsistency this season.
The first team experience he can still gain at Ibrox in the Scottish Premiership could be vital to his development at a key stage of his career. Move to another club too early and he may find himself unable to break into a team and that could ruin it all.
Committing to Rangers and giving Pedro Caixinha the confidence to invest time and effort into his development would appear to be a smart move right now. He’s still young and there’s plenty of time in the future to find a big move away from the club.
Right now he needs to focus on improving his game.
