View: Ridvan Yilmaz will start looking at Rangers exit if he does not get chance v Motherwell

Rangers are going through somewhat of a crisis right now on and off the pitch at Ibrox under Giovanni van Bronckhorst in all competitions.

Despite easing through most Scottish Premiership games, the Champions League has seen them take a battering, yet rotation appears to be non-existent.

Ridvan Yilmaz will be one of those who is pulling his hair out on the bench constantly, with Borna Barisic somehow keeping his spot in the side.

There was excitement around Glasgow when the Turkish international arrived from Besiktas, yet the only time he has been given the chance is in the Scottish Cup.

Barisic has been far from impressive, with big complaints certainly coming after that 7-1 defeat against Liverpool, as he consistently passed backwards which killed any momentum.

Yilmaz can be that fearless option on the left that the Bears have been crying out for, and the game against Motherwell on Sunday is the perfect time for that.

Even only months after joining, the lack of rotation at Rangers from Van Bronckhorst will be enough for a young player to start looking elsewhere for constant football.

Fanatik has already reported that the left-back is on the radar of Trabzonspor ahead of the January window, with a potential return to his homeland on the cards.

This would be a complete disaster for Van Bronckhorst and Ross Wilson, with their transfer work already coming under heavy scrutiny due to failures on the pitch.

Yilmaz is a young player who needs to be playing every week and now is the perfect time to hand him that chance in Glasgow with Barisic so off the boil.

If that doesn’t start to happen in this next month before the upcoming World Cup, Yilmaz could find himself on the move once that is finished and the January window opens again.

This is certainly one to keep an eye on.
