Ally McCoist, the manager of Glasgow Rangers, has said that David Templeton can take the Scottish Championship by storm this summer if he manages to remain away from the injuries.
Templeton’s services were grabbed by McCoist a couple of years back in 2012. He had paid 700 thousand Pounds to Heart of Midlothian to buy the winger. It was a new record in terms of the transfer fee being paid to a fourth division club ever.
But, Templeton’s stint in Glasgow has mostly remained affected by injuries and he has just played 40 odd games for the club so far.
Groin injury is something that he has struggled with a lot recently. Even in the previous season, he had been out for about 10 weeks because of the problem in his groin.
He made his first appearance of this summer last week against Hibernian and he looked okay fitness wise in that game. He was used as a substitute and he was impressive. He helped the Rangers secure a 2-1 win there.
Talking about him yesterday, McCoist said, “David is someone whom we are certainly expecting to deliver. I believe he is the most gifted player around in the Championship. He can do things that no one can do. Till now, he has been a little under par here at Glasgow, but, I need to be fair to him. The injuries have just not let him settle down.”
“What we are hoping this time around is for him to remain fit throughout the season. If he is fit, I am sure we will see charismatic performances from him. When in form, he is a delightful player.”
Templeton has not played senior international football to date. He has represented Scotland only at the U-19 and U-21 level.

He knows that football sets you challenges every week. Talks on his new contract are going reasonably well,” said the sporting director. “To fulfil his contract is to fulfill his contract. [Martino] has said he will do that. [Pep Guardiola] told me he would not be staying in May,” said Zubizarreta regarding Martino.

“We’ve been very good but we can still get better, and that’s the plan. We’ll take one game at a time and hopefully win the Champions League. “Bale said.
