    He's not a Rangers legend and certainly not bigger than the club so he should get back to training with the rest of the squad.
    Disagree all you want but the fact of the matter is he was still training while out there. And what exactly does him not being a rangers legend have to do with anything? Some of you lot are obsessed with the clubs decision months back.

    I'm sure he'll be back sooner than he would've been had he not that break pre-tournament.

      Deserves a few weeks off imo. He may not have played out there but would have been fully prepared and trained hard to do so if needed. Be good for him now to have a little time away.

        You mean he played no matches whatsoever. He was still training daily. His season essentially never ended. If he comes back too soon it could be awful for his long term fitness. There are sports scientists and fitness coaches making scientific decisions about this, they're not doing him any favours.

          I think itís easy to make the mistake youíve made there and focus on the physical side of things only. When managing people and trying to get the best out of the them itís crucial to get the mental side right.

          Would be a foolish way of looking at it in my opinion to class sitting around a hotel in Russia with a bunch of people he wouldnít choose to spend his time with as holiday. He is from the other side of the world. Give the guy a break. I trust and would guess the club also trust him as a pro to stay in shape and use a well deserved bit of family time to come back fresh and ready to perform for the new season

            No. He's off

                  No panic on my part! Just seemed strange imo that we gave him weeks off before end of season and no play time in WC therefore expected him to have reported back

                      Exactly. And he's at this moment in time probably fitter than any member of our squad. The players must get about 5 weeks off. Luongo hasn't had that yet. Give the guy a break.
