Next Wolves Manager Needs Top Players Back For Premier League Fight
Wolves will move up the Premier League table once they have a fully fit squad with important players returning to full fitness.
That’s the view of former midfielder Alex Rae, who played for the West Midlands club between 2001-2004, and he’s spoken to BoyleSports also on Liverpool’s trip to another one of his old clubs Rangers.
Both clubs meet in the Champions League on Wednesday night, so let’s see what he has to say below! Don’t miss a load of Price Boosts further down too!

BRUNO LAGE’S SACKING & THE CURRENT STATE OF WOLVES
You never want to see a manager lose his job but it’s important that Wolves appoint a manager sooner rather than later because they have five out of seven games at home before the World Cup break so it’s an opportunity for someone to come in and get the Molineux crowd behind them.
It’s also important to try and get Pedro Neto and Raul Jimenez back fit and if Adama Traore and Daniel Podence, alongside Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves, can get the service to Diego Costa then they can stay within the pack.
This is the most important time in the last five years for Wolves. This is a watershed moment for them and they need to start picking up points in the next seven games. That could well coincide with a new manager and new philosophy.
On the other hand, I thought it was really refreshing from Nottingham Forest to give Steve Cooper a new contract because they’ve had a huge overhaul of players and it will take time for players to gel and start to pick up results.
A GOOD TIME FOR RANGERS TO PLAY LIVERPOOL?
Confidence will be high but it’d be naive for Rangers to go gung-ho against Liverpool.
They have to have structure and their best chance of a result is to transition through Ryan Kent and get deliveries into the box for Antonio Colak.
They have to get something from the game against Liverpool because it’ll be difficult in the next one against Napoli – they have to get a point on Wednesday night.
It won’t be a routine win for Liverpool, but it’ll still be tough for Rangers. Colak is in great form and scoring goals at the moment whilst we saw Trent Alexander-Arnold go off injured for Liverpool at the weekend.
So you’ll likely have Joe Gomez out of position at right-back again which could make things interesting.
It’ll be very interesting to see who leads the line on Wednesday night because Alfredo Morelos started the last couple of games against Napoli and Liverpool, but I don’t think he’s fully fit and Colak’s confidence will be sky-high.
HOW CAN RANGERS BEAT LIVERPOOL?
Ryan Kent was rested at the weekend so I’d imagine he’ll have a big involvement in the game against Liverpool and this could be a great time for him to put out a statement performance.
Kent has a big part to play if Rangers are going to get anything from the game. He’s saved some of his best performances for Europe and they have to get the ball to him so he can bring the ball forward.
Colak’s in form and Morelos’ physicality to come off the bench. If fully fit, you’d start Morelos because his record in Europe last season was brilliant but he’s not fully up to speed yet. One thing’s for sure, the Ibrox atmosphere is always intimidating.
