I think Darren, who has featured in the first team at Ibrox, is a very promising player indeed.
But failing to appear for a game, a charity match at that, is bad form. That just doesn't happen in football.
He is rightly in bother after failing to turn up to play for a Rangers reserve side against Cambuslang Rangers.
To just not appear, without so much as a phone call, is inexcusable. He has rightly been told to stay away from training by Ally McCoist.
He will have to learn the hard way that Rangers is not a pub team you can turn up to play for as and when you feel like it.
I have, meanwhile, been intrigued to see Ally getting a bit of flak for continuing to pursue new players.
Honestly! He just can't do anything without being criticised!
When his team was struggling last season, at a time when he was unable to strengthen, he was castigated for their poor form.
When they ended up winning the league comfortably he was slaughtered for the style of football they played.
Now he can bring in free agents he is
criticised for wanting a few more bodies. Whatever he does people will complain.
But he is working to the budget he has been given by the club.
He wouldn't have a goalkeeper and a young midfielder on trial at the club if he had been told Rangers couldn't afford them.
