Does Queens Park's bad season have something to do with Rangers? Can't Post or Reply Privately

Queens Park seems to have an unusually bad season.
Does that have anything to do with Rangers playing at a "lower than usual" level?
Are there players now playing for Rangers, that might otherwise play for Queens Park? (And how is Partick Thistle affected, and may affect Queens Park??)

If Queens players had gone to Ibrox they wouldnt have the problem of asking them to take pay cuts so no whats happening at both clubs is not connected.

Unconnected.

Rangers signed big- pros.

QP lost players to wage-paying part-timers/youths to Premiership.

No idea, just my own theory, but Queens Park are currently sharing at Airdrie, while Hampden Park is being converted to be used for the Commonwealth Games. The track will then have to be removed after that.

I am sure the appeal of playing at such a ground, as compared to most small lower division places, compensates for not getting paid a wage. This season that carrot is not there.

The future is still good though, as their Reserves are doing very well, so lots more talent is coming throught their conveyer belt.

Don't think its that Mishi, as HJ says above they lost quite a few of their decent young players to Premiership clubs and have been unable to replace them with players of the same quality. They are quite good with their youth system as you say so I would expect them to bonce back.
