Joshua Barrie and Jonny McFarlane answer your big questions as 2022/23 comes to a close.

What is the minimum you would accept for Ianis Hagi? I think ÂŁ8m.

Joshua: You’d be doing well to get that sort of money for Hagi given what his last 18 months have looked like. Perhaps, if after 18 goals and assists in the league during the 55 season, his next campaign had continued on an upwards trajectory the price banding would be different. The Romanian signed a new contract just after Michael Beale arrived and we know how fond the manager is of the midfielder, who started to regain some sharpness by the end of the season. Hagi is still an asset for Rangers but the question is, do they look to cash in on that value now or reassess things next summer, when both parties will hope to have enjoyed a more profitable campaign? It’s worth remembering that Beale’s football is far more conducive to Hagi’s skillset than Van Bronckhorst’s. With attackers playing close together and acting in combination, handed an element of positional freedom. You’d imagine Hagi is hugely motivated to make new memories at Ibrox – which could create a better selling situation for the club next season.

You get to pick two signings for next season. One fantasy and one realistic. Who would they be?

Jonny: Realistic - I'd like to see Rangers move for Kevin Nisbet as a striker with a decent ceiling who can score goals at Scottish Premiership level. He's only got a year left on his contract at Hibs and wouldn't cost the earth. Beale needs to ensure his squad fits homegrown requirements so some players from these shores would be advisable and Nisbet looks to be a good combination of price and quality.

Fantasy - Rangers could do with a mobile striker with a physical stature and eye for goal, a young Mark Hateley would be perfect. These sorts of players don't grow on trees and when scouts do uncover them, they tend to go for huge sums. I'd love to see Rangers find a player who can give what Alfredo Morelos did at his peak and take the fight to an opposition backline. Given the quality of delivery the squad has from wide areas and set plays, someone with prowess in the air would surely see a glut of goals flying in next season.

We go into next season with Tav and Goldson embedded in the defence again why do we think we’ll win the league? Evidence over a number of seasons has proven that we need to, at the very least, replace Tavernier, or we will have a material weakness down our right side.

Joshua: Tavernier did endure a difficult first few months this season when he was carrying an injury, but he isn’t the problem. Realistically, this side would be worse off without him. With the highest league goals and assists tally at the club, 25, and a constant ability to lead by actions when his side are struggling. There is going to be the odd costly defensive mistake from a player who’s handed so much responsibility in the opposition half but in this writer’s opinion, that’s well paid for in return. Tavernier is a leader in his own right, taking the ball in any circumstance and always trying to drive his side forward. It’s too easy to look at isolated incidents and argue the captain makes his side weaker and there’s a reason that everyone who’s managed him at Ibrox has seen him as an integral asset. That’s not going to change in the short term under Beale.

From the current team who will be there come the first game of the season?

Jonny: Tavernier, Goldson, Cantwell, Souttar, McCrorie and Raskin are stick-ons to be part of the squad next season but there aren't too many more you'd put into that category. Beale can't get rid of everybody and players like Fashion Sakala have shown they can be useful as squad players, even if his form is mercurial. Guys like Alex Lowry, Adam Devine, Zak Lovelace and Bailey Rice must keep pushing for minutes and won't be going anywhere unless sent on loan to get experience. I'd expect Jon McLaughlin and Scott Wright to depart - their time at Ibrox is over. Ridvan Yilmaz showed plenty of promise after the split and will hope to kick on in pre-season, while Rabbi Matondo still has a question mark over his future. A full pre-season would do him good too, but if an offer arrived, I'm certain it would be carefully considered. With a year left on his deal, Borna Barisic may feel it's time to move on and try something new and although you can't see a major transfer fee coming in - it would free up more wages.

How long do you think we can keep players like Raskin and Cantwell if they keep performing to the levels we are starting to see?

Joshua: I don’t think anyone expects Raskin and Cantwell to be at Ibrox for numerous seasons, least of so the club, and that’s a good thing. The player trading model that needs to function for Rangers to succeed has success stories and points of failure over the last couple of years, leading to the need for a rebuild in the summer of 2023. Something that simply shouldn’t have been the case given the high ground enjoyed in 2021. You’d expect both of the January signings to end up in the Premier League one day and return big fees in comparison to the menial sums they travelled north. If Rangers can demonstrate themselves as a pathway to the world’s biggest league with all the unique benefits that come from playing for an institution, everyone will benefit. Raskin and Cantwell will want to leave as winners when that day comes but quite clearly, they’re bought in completely at present.

Do we expect Goldson and Souttar to be the starting CB pairing at the start of next season?

Jonny: No. I think Goldson will remain Rangers' defensive leader in a back four and will be partnered by a new left-footed centre-back signing. Having a left-sided player allows a quicker build-up and we've seen the benefit of this with Ben Davies and, to a lesser extent, Filip Helander over the years. Davies is a decent player who is very sharp on the ball but I suspect a move back to the Championship will suit all parties. Souttar will come into the team when three at the back is deployed and to cover for injuries and suspension. That should allow him 30 or so starts, perfect for a player who has suffered serious injuries and whose body must be managed delicately throughout the campaign.
