Do you expect an 11th hour bid for morelos on 28th Feb 15 million Dumbbell dollars would be accepted 😂😂😂😂 lol.

Believable3 Unbelievable11

21 Feb 2018 06:51:31
If there is a bid it would be around the 10 mil mark that was the asking price set back in January!

Agree3 Disagree5

21 Feb 2018 11:41:24
Going by what Murty is saying and reports there’s already been a bid of 11 million that was not near the price we value him? Don’t think anyone from the club has put a price on him

Agree4 Disagree3

21 Feb 2018 11:43:01
Aye but his value has gone up since then! 😁

Agree5 Disagree2

20 Feb 2018 18:26:37
Early days but I'm a wee bit worried about Russell martin his days as a right back probably behind him although comfortable playing center back I don't feel he is commanding enough and maybe not the quickest. With murtys comments about Bruno being an important player between now and end of season, I really don't fancy these 2 together with their lack of pace.

Believable4 Unbelievable3

20 Feb 2018 18:42:53
Was the partnership of ALves and cardoso really that bad? I don't think it was and I'd rather have them two together then Martin and bates. But who ever plays Alves should deff get put back in in my opinion.

Agree12 Disagree7

20 Feb 2018 19:00:06
Martin and Bates by far best option currently and for remainder of season. Martin did no have his best game at Hamilton but think the pitch contributed to that. Longer term Bates and McClorie the best partnership available.

Agree6 Disagree8

20 Feb 2018 21:50:51
I disagree think Alves over Martin all day long and think cardoso will turn into a better defender than bates if he could get a run.

Agree4 Disagree2

20 Feb 2018 23:29:49
Spoke to ex pro Gers man who stated Mark Alens wages are paid by a group of five millionaires.
He also stated that he has five players lined up for every position and its down to the manager who he picks .
Man city's loss is our gain, City just wanted to splash the cash and that is not Mark Allens game, we have def won a watch with him .

{Ed033's Note - Have you won an Omega?

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Feb 2018 23:32:45
Would like to see Alves any day, could bring best out of Bates who just needs, fine tuning .

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Feb 2018 08:38:44
Plastic pitches were the bain of our lives climbing up the leagues - some of our worst result (Alloa! ) were on these crap pitches.
Martin to me - looked like Bambi on the stuff - his clearance for the second goal took forever and eventually he fluffed it.
Templeton apparentyly done his knees in on plastic and now plays on it every second week - how does that work?

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 11:12:34
I think McCrorie is a defensive midfielder and we shouldn’t be tinkering with his position.

Agree3 Disagree2

20 Feb 2018 17:36:15
Rumours Bates has knocked back a new contract offer, Bruno and cordoso look to be on the way out under Murty and is letting Wilson go. Who will we be getting in for next season? Like the look of McKenna from Aberdeen but wouldn’t say better than Wilson

Believable1 Unbelievable8

20 Feb 2018 21:53:19
Steven caulker would be one to keep an eye see how he does between now and the rest of the season. Can't say I fancy any other centre backs playing in are league just now.

Agree3 Disagree2

21 Feb 2018 00:13:27
Caulker is definitely a player we should be looking at, he’s still young enough and has played at a very good standard

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Feb 2018 15:39:44
With Bates apparently knocking back his contact offer, Bruno and Cardoso look set to be offloaded in the Summer and is no interest in Wilson. Who are we bringing in for our centre back in the Summer?

Believable0 Unbelievable7

20 Feb 2018 15:51:39
Well it’s definately the weakest part of our team and has been the biggest problem since we came back into the premier league. We have Ross McCrorie now and that’s it. Alves Cardoso and Bates just aren’t good enough.

Agree0 Disagree15

20 Feb 2018 17:28:00
European Championship winner and Portuguese international Bruno Alves isn't good enough? Have a word with yourself Rick, good god man.

Agree8 Disagree2

20 Feb 2018 18:35:50
martin ain’t good enough either bears

not by a long way

20 Feb 2018 20:28:12
Boabt, Wilson is already away

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Feb 2018 21:56:41
how is Alves not good enough i don't get that at all he has not been that bad at all.

Agree4 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 11:14:27
We should get in Toni leistner as a class centre back only 27 and the best cb in bundesliga 2 he is out of contract in the summer but we would need to be quick.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Feb 2018 11:26:35
I think he was referring to Aiden Wilson

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Feb 2018 16:14:22
I can't believe I am reading such crap on this page fellow bears slagging there own players. Thy haven't played a full season yet. Give them time that team will win the league next season.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 23:45:29
Most important game of the season coming up. A must win to heap pressure on Celtic. 6 points gap prior to their game will have some knees knocking. A win in the OF game and it would be game on. I hear the Snake Mountain supporters are actually s***ting themselves ahead of the weekend. The Famous are coming!

Believable16 Unbelievable7

I really hope the sheep can get a result, but you know them sheep always crapping themselves!

Agree7 Disagree1

20 Feb 2018 15:14:44
They know we are closing in and it is starting to show. Only thing is though, can we maintain a good winning run?
A win against Hearts and with them playing on Sunday must be a boost for Aberdeen’s confidence to get their first win over them.
We must win all the games before the old firm game. Then it’s game on


Agree7 Disagree1

20 Feb 2018 15:38:48
"I smell the fear", oh you guys just keep giving lol.
Don't you know by now even if we lose to Aberdeen your team goes out the next week and loses to a bottom 6 team.

Its what you do and you done it all season.
I think we could lose 4 games and still win league easily, simply because none of the chasing pack can sustain a winning run.

Agree2 Disagree10

rayman99 🎣 Your biting 😂😂😂

20 Feb 2018 17:51:41
Rainman, hahaha come on sir you and the rest can show the defiance all you like. Celtic will be beaten by Aberdeen on Sunday and Rangers this time won't let you off the hook then come march 11 we will rattle you lot as well deny it all you like but the title ain't won.

Rangers have the best attackers in the league by a mile more speed than you better fullbacks as well. Tav is better than Tierney and is better than Lustig as well stats don't lie son. You are that good at researching everything Rangers you can find it. Goss is head and shoulders above Brown, again stats don't lie. Wee 4 yard passes that come to nothing is all Brown does. We have finally clicked and you will see that come 11th

Cardoso apparently not happy with lack of game time, that's fine but he must do better when given a chance. he has a decent touch etc but basic defending is poor, gets bullied too often and celebrates if he wins a rare header.

Believable6 Unbelievable4

20 Feb 2018 00:20:48
I’d give him a shot with Bates. Not been particularly impressed with Martin if I’m honest. 2 pantries given away already for handballs 😂

Agree5 Disagree7

20 Feb 2018 01:01:54
Pantries 😂😂 obviously meant to be panalties**

Agree4 Disagree4

20 Feb 2018 08:25:57
Cardoso has had his chance, he’s brutal.

Agree6 Disagree8

20 Feb 2018 09:20:14
Martin was very poor on Sunday however both penalties were very harsh. How can it be deliberate handball when the ball was blasted at him from 2 yards? His reactions aren’t that fast to make it deliberate. Even more ridiculous was to get booked for it too

Agree7 Disagree2

20 Feb 2018 11:59:04
Very harsh penalties to be honest but I still agree he hAsn't been rest and is quite slow but he is a smart player and reads the game well just afraid that he may be just off the pace of some of the Celtic players but cardosso is quicker but not as smart as Martin so what's worse?
I think mcrorie and Bates would team up well and if given this season to gel will brilliant together next season? Thoughts?

Agree6 Disagree1

20 Feb 2018 15:12:42
To be fair both pens were really unfortunate imo. He is throwing himself in front of the shot in both cases. Not a lot he could do. I don't think Martin has done a lot wrong so far tbh.

Agree5 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 18:01:55
A good center back usually doesn't need to find himself lunging in last gasp in those situations.

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Feb 2018 19:00:13
Guys love the optimism but calm down. Let's get the 2 games vs hearts and St Johnstone out the way 1st. I can see us dropping points in both games given how ropey our defence is. If we take 6 points then is the time to ramp up the pressure going into the game on the 11th.

I can see us going into the game easily 11 points or worse behind.

Now if we had a proper manager things may be different, then again we would probably be clear at the top

Agree0 Disagree4

21 Feb 2018 11:27:20
Have to disagree bgate. When I played I was told by every coach to get my body in the way of the ball. Basic defending. Every one of the world's best defenders made a living out of it

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 21:28:11
Heard that its a straight choice between graeme murty and kilmarnock manager stevie clarke, to be the new permanent rangers manager at the end of the season! Both have their supporters within the ibrox board of directors! Ed would you please do a poll amongst our supporters regarding who they would prefer to be our permanent manager beyond this season, if it was down to these 2 managers, graeme murty V stevie clarke? Cheers ed! I would reckon this will be a very close poll!

Murty Clarke Poll

19 Feb 2018 23:12:30
Is Clarke not have background from the dark side?

19 Feb 2018 23:52:31
Murty all day long

Agree9 Disagree1

19 Feb 2018 23:54:16
Apparently he is a boyhood Killie fan

Agree3 Disagree3

20 Feb 2018 01:06:29
Clarke is an unwashed fan apparently. You can tell he doesn’t like Rangers by the way he reacted to the bid knocked back for Jones

Agree5 Disagree2

20 Feb 2018 09:07:11
Good Manager Steve Clark but he’s an out n out Tim. When Brenda leaves, he’ll be the replacement.
Not for me.

Agree4 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 09:22:08
What he has done with Kilmarnock is incredible though and he would be a good shout. However if Rangers finish 2nd and win the cup then Murty should be given another season

Agree8 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 10:10:29
Although Steve Clarke has worked wonders at Kilmarnnock and is a fantastic coach there's no way he will join us, in fact there is more chance of Rodgers leaving and him joining Celtic!

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 12:02:28
Finnish second? We will be up there for the title race if we win our next 4 games hard task i know but it's about time and I feel a change in the wind don't u guys.

Confidence breeds success and this team are brimming with it just now.

Agree6 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 12:45:39
Clarke no thanks. Done a very good job but what's wrong with Murty? The guys got us winning and playing well. A few hiccups but there's been a lot of changes regards playing staff. Really don't want another manager due to then more playing staff in and out. Time to gel blah blah blah. We're ready to kick on now with this team.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 15:11:35
Steve Clark said he won't leave Kilmarnock for any other SPL team.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Feb 2018 15:24:51
Steve Clarke manager of Rangers? How absurd can you get?

Agree4 Disagree1

20 Feb 2018 17:54:28
We don't need to give anyone the job right now. Back Murty till the end of season. Then judge him.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 15:13:46
Just want to make a point about ALves.

Can people get off the guys back? Yes it's been an underwhelming signing as he cannot keep fit, however, he is head and shoulders above any CB in our team when fit, him and Berra are statistically the best CB's in the league.

People claiming he feigned injury in the Old Firm game are incorrect. I've seen our own fans in his Instagram giving him abuse, it's disgraceful. He has a recurring calf injury, he went to Madrid to see Ronaldo's specialist during the first Old Firm game.

It's the exact same as the Windass situation, people slaughtering him every week and now they look like fools for it.

Believable23 Unbelievable6

19 Feb 2018 15:31:05
Well said bear

Agree12 Disagree1

19 Feb 2018 16:59:54
Hear hear.100% agree, why would Alves pretend to be injured when he has won titles in Portugal, Russia and Turkey and played against better and much more physical opponents than Celtic!

Agree12 Disagree1

19 Feb 2018 22:23:33
For the money alves is on compared to the amount of time he has been injured he has been a waste. His performances have not been that great either. Get shot at the end of the season, his wage could be much better spent.

Agree5 Disagree1

19 Feb 2018 22:41:38
Bruno Alves doesn't bottle any match but it could be argued he's come for a last pay day lots may disagree just have a good at Portugals CBs there s 4 players in his position much younger 25+ ish worth 20M playing for top teams .

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Feb 2018 12:04:16
Alex and Bates will be good together as I don't think Martin is much quicker than wives and isn't as smart either

Agree0 Disagree2

21 Feb 2018 05:29:11
Who is Alex and what's this got to do with his Wives mate :D

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 13:08:08
Getting McCrorie, Jack and Dorrans back in the team will give us so many options. it's looking really good; McCrorie maybe step back into centre back, but when he was playing cdm he was unplayable. If Rossiter can get fit which i highly doubt our midfielders will all have to be at the top of their game to keep their spot which will make us so strong for the run in.

Believable12 Unbelievable2

19 Feb 2018 15:23:19
How long till Dorrans is back

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 19:16:27
Jordan, he last played on the 25th of October in the draw with Kilmarnock.

I'd have hoped he would be back training by now but I've not seen him in any of the training pictures yet, starting to get the feeling we might not see Dorrans back on time for the run in. Here's hoping.

Seen Ryan Jack has been in the gym but I don't think he has trained with the team - i'm sure he's out for the rest of the season?

Don't know about Mcrorie.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Feb 2018 19:21:27
No it will make it difficult to pick our midfield because there is to many options. Niko and Bruno are on too much wages
I think they need to go.

Agree4 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 22:24:56
They will be like 3 new signings.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Feb 2018 18:58:00
Todays performance was not great at all. Docherty had a poor game and bates for me is a squad player. i'd much rather have alves and martin at the back and on todays performance holt is a far better passer than docherty. But i do believe docherty will get better over the next year or so.

Believable11 Unbelievable41

18 Feb 2018 19:12:08
Are you mad? In fact I'd actually go as far to say that you must be a Celtic fan.

Agree22 Disagree4

18 Feb 2018 19:17:17
Remember docherty is only young he will have good and bad games but has the potential to be a great long term signing . We need to support all our young players

Agree19 Disagree8

18 Feb 2018 19:23:30
Don’t agree at all. Docherty is better than Holt, Bates is better than Alves.

Agree16 Disagree21

18 Feb 2018 19:32:37
Docherty's passing was poor today, but showed plenty of energy and some great breakup play.

I'd definitely persevere with him over holt.

Agree15 Disagree7

18 Feb 2018 20:10:47
Honestly TGR, david bates AIN'T better than bruno alves and NEVER WILL be my friend! God almighty what a statement to come out with! Bruno alves has almost 100 caps for portugal!

Agree24 Disagree9

18 Feb 2018 20:12:41
Total nonsense docherty broke up play numerous times but had a couple of missed placed passes. He’s the future of Rangers. Pitch played a big part in poor defending took players a while to adjust

Agree21 Disagree1

18 Feb 2018 20:22:52
My god just get behind the team,

Agree16 Disagree5

18 Feb 2018 22:04:35
Agree muf1970 but I was never convinced by the signing of docherty and imo is no better than barjo

Agree1 Disagree11

18 Feb 2018 22:46:35
Bates is better than Alves. Gez peace. Is that a wind up? Do u know anything about football?

Agree16 Disagree1

18 Feb 2018 22:52:28
alves is a good a player but i would rather see murty settle on a cb pairing of cardoso and mccorie when fit to see how these two would do rest of season if these two are not good enough going forward i would look at getting someone in to partner mccorie

Agree4 Disagree7

18 Feb 2018 22:57:42
Anyone on the plant who follows football and knows anything about football knows that Alves is in a totally different league to David bates.

Agree12 Disagree4

18 Feb 2018 23:21:24
Let me get this right jamie you want Bates out but keep Martin in who caused 2 goals today and had a shocker. Docherty apart from a couple of bad passes had a good game and was involved in 2 goals isn't good enough either. Mmm

Agree13 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 00:18:45
The pitch today was shocking for passing embarrassment advertisement for the scottish game playing on surfaces like that

Agree11 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 00:22:40
Well if you all think bates is a decent centre half then fair enough. But if we want to compete then both bates and martin are not a long term solution. Like i said docherty is a work in progress.

Agree5 Disagree4

19 Feb 2018 00:29:26
Must admit I haven't been blown away by Docherty. As some posters have said he is young and will come good. Maybe He's trying too hard. Stand outs for me today were Morelos, Windass, Murphy. Thought John was good but Goss was my mom. What a permanent signing he would be.

Agree1 Disagree7

19 Feb 2018 00:42:12
At the moment Holt is better than young Doc

Agree8 Disagree7

19 Feb 2018 02:08:46
doesnt matter about caps lol he’s a old man who is a pussy, Bates is a lion and served us very well, he’s also a lot quicker than Alves which we need, **** Alves man you’d have to rip my leg off to take me off the park against Celtic. Bates Bates ooooooh Bates Bates

Agree7 Disagree12

19 Feb 2018 07:59:45
Bates isn’t better than Alves although Alves has struggled. As for Docherty, he actually done ok yesterday and will only get better the more he plays. Jamie Barjonas isn’t at his level.

Agree6 Disagree4

19 Feb 2018 09:23:23
The boy Bates is a young McLeish and together with McCorie can develop and form a formidable central defensive partnership for years to come. Alves is a lovely guy but is way past his best and at this stage in his career does not have the physicality or motivation to perform for us consistently at a high level. Great though that he is passing on advice to all of the young centre backs including Cordoso.

Great to see development and breakthrough if Bates this season. Did you see how disappointed he was when missed header and goal scoring opportunity. Priceless! Just watch how he converts and celebrates the next chafe he gets.

Agree6 Disagree4

19 Feb 2018 09:36:03
Fs even when we win we are still getting criticised, at the end of the day we got the 3 points that we where looking for and we are now in 2nd place so get a grip and get behind yer team.

Agree11 Disagree1

19 Feb 2018 09:56:01
How stubborn some folk must be to still be saying that Alves feigned injury at Celtic Park!? Do you actually believe it or do you just say it to justify not wanting him in the first XI? Although he's not fully impressed me, he's still the best CB we have on the books and I for one hope he turns it round and has a great last year and a half with us.

Agree9 Disagree1

19 Feb 2018 10:04:54
I thought Bates had a good game and Docherty had couple of missed placed passes but came good remember he’s just came in to the side and Will settle in let’s get behind the team and give it a go 👍

Agree10 Disagree2

19 Feb 2018 10:13:53
Bates would play through the pain barrier against them for sure, Alves is to old to slow too much of a pussy, we are far better at the back with Bates, and that’s a fact before results show a lot left goals conceded

Agree2 Disagree9

19 Feb 2018 10:34:36
Bates was poor against Hamilton too many short clearances and needlessly heading the ball high but back into the mixer we need to just get the ball out the pitch and regroup

Agree4 Disagree6

19 Feb 2018 11:41:56
Hope we win 5 3 every week

Agree5 Disagree0

19 Feb 2018 12:08:21
I can see why the defence is getting criticism, letting three in yesterday, but the man I worry about at the back is Fod. He seems to get beaten by long range low shots consistently, and hardly ever comes off his line. A big lad like him should be commanding his penalty area. Maybe that's the way they coach them now, or has he not got the confidence to try and collect crosses. Other games he has shown some brilliant shot stopping ability at close range, but he does let himself down with crosses into the box.

Agree3 Disagree3

19 Feb 2018 12:34:12
Alves has 15 years on Bates no? Alves has been very poor on pitch. In training prob helping young guys though. Doc first start if I'm right so calm down. Both young players and learning.

Agree4 Disagree3

20 Feb 2018 12:17:20
Bates performances this season have been better than Alves's where before the injury so I would say he keeps his spot. Docherty loads of potential and great break up play.
Supercooper . Mate if we have Martin and Alves at the back would u not think that anyone with pace could just right through I'd rather have Bates in there he has pace and looks a proper no nonsense defender much better than their young Ayer boy for me . He has to be first pick defender
HAsn't got the credentials Alves has. But thAt because Albee is a lot lot older than him
