Gooch and Bramble on borrowed time

Following ricks against Alkmaar and Charlton two of our central defenders have been issued with an 8 game ultimatum to save their Gallowgate careers by the boss. With funds in short supply and players bound to be coming in, it looks like these two will join Moorcelino and Bernard in going out the exit door. Glenn added:

"Titus has done that sort of thing before, but nothing has been decided with him. If he wants to stay here he's got eight games to prove he should. He is fighting for his life and he has to finish the season strongly. Titus is a very frustrating player because when he is good, he is very good. But, one of the responsibilities you must fulfil as a defender is consistency in every minute of every game because it only takes a second to score a goal.

There is a lot to like about Titus, but again, he does have those lapses in concentration. I'm sure he goes out trying to make sure that doesn't happen. But no decision has been made. No senior player has definitely been told they are staying. The chairman and I have not discussed it with these eight games to go. If Titus wants to stay, he is fighting for his life.

Goochie was a loan signing, it's a free look, it's the best way to have a look at a player and it can't do any harm. If they aren't good enough, you send them back to their clubs. He has got eight games left to prove he is good enough. I'll use those games to make my mind up about him, as long as I decide he is the right man to play. If he doesn't start he can't impress so he has a fight on his hands. I've seen enough of him, without the European games, to get to know him.'
