One more point. What a performance from Wes "Billy the Fish " Foderingham. Will not be forgotten!

what you on about some posts are turning out to be riddles.

I feel sorry for King and warburton and present board they get slated all the time for not investing and not been good management where the hell would we be if King never came back nobody else was interested mr green or white would have sold Ibrox to Ashley and we would be seeing Ibrox as the biggest sports direct shop in uk or we would still be in championship as feeder club for Newcastle apprentices and ally in charge as he supported green and whites take over its our first season back I was happy to be in top six so great as we are in top four just now be thankful we still have rangers.

Hugh, I have no sympathy for King although I do have some for Warburton. King trumpeted off on the investment he would make, the transfer fund that would be available etc., and none of it has materialised. Perhaps he should have kept his mouth shut.
As for alternatives I seem to recall that Souness and Kennedy were close to securing the Club and with them in control we might well be seeing a better set of results.
They most likely wouldn't have given the bull to the fans that King has spouted and as I have said before I have to believe that an agreement could have been reached with Sports Direct through sensible negotiation rather than by adopting the stance that King has taken which was all about keeping the fans onside rather than resolving the issue.
In many respects, if Souness and Kennedy are still interested then it might be better for King to stand aside and let them take the Club forward since personally I do not believe that King has the wherewithal to do this!

Not going to comment on the recent game with Celtic. However, I would like to raise a few points .

Celtic looked fitter, stronger, more tactically astute and cohesive than us. T

hats not down to budget- that's down to leadership, management, training programmes and fitness strategy. Its not only been in the Celtic game our players look cream crackered after 70 mins.

If I was Warburton I would walk into next board room and play a video of the Celtic fans jumping up and down in celebration, and simply say -do you want Rangers to be great again - if the answer is yes - then get your cheque book out lads.

Mourinho, Wenger or Conte could not do much better with the squad we have - So its time to back Warbs or don't be surprised if he heads back South . very soon.

1.) 03 Jan 2017 15:06:09
Thought you weren't going to comment on it?

2.) 03 Jan 2017 17:13:44
But all the money in the world won't fix fitness issues! It would be more like it if he was dragged in and told to get players like waghorn off the fish suppers and get them putting it in at training every week! Still think its criminal that we are not fit.

3.) 03 Jan 2017 17:24:32
Must admit the fitness issue worries me too nic861.When waghorn was through on goal in second half he looked like he was pulling a tractor and Halliday looks knackered with 20mins to go in matches.

4.) 03 Jan 2017 17:47:42
Lol, Carslberg don't comment on the Celtic game but if they did they would be your comments Barcabear.

5.) 03 Jan 2017 20:02:51
Not all of the players look unfit but certainly Halliday and Waghorn appear to struggle, but then neither should be in the first eleven!

6.) 03 Jan 2017 22:41:49
If it's not down to budget, then why ask the board room to get the cheque book out? 😂😂😂.



03 Nov 2016 10:16:52
Know this will cause a stramash -how about Commons or Scott Allan to replace Nico while he is getting fit. Both have the ability to unlock a defence etc

1.) 03 Nov 2016 10:25:26
Commons, unfit, not played a game in donkeys, not what we need. Scott Allan, well again unfit, told to go and train with youth at Rotherham, i'll pass on that.

2.) 03 Nov 2016 10:39:43
Scott Allan could offer to play for us for nothing and I would still refuse. Karma is a great thing.

3.) 03 Nov 2016 11:00:28
if I could pick 3 signings for january/ summer :

blair Spittal
jason cummings
and a centre back.

4.) 03 Nov 2016 11:06:40
Do you think Celtic would sell them or loan them to us?

5.) 03 Nov 2016 11:42:26
that idea is only a ballhair from insanity.

6.) 03 Nov 2016 12:09:34
Both had a chance to come to us earlier and neither did so both can gtf and rot away.

7.) 03 Nov 2016 12:41:05
How about Jermaine Defoe of Sunderland. Struggling team and doesn't start every game but could be available at a reasonable price? I'd also recall young Hardie and start giving Liam Burt a run.

8.) 03 Nov 2016 13:47:52
Berbatov is free and would rip SPL apart, however, we don't shop in those windows anymore. Expect maybe 2 young loan players from EPL. We won't be spending cash in January.

Another area of concern is fitness and strength . They were way stronger than us- even after having a tough mid week game. They buy Dembele - instant return -we buy Garner- Stevie Wonder could see he is out of his depth.

Would be a great move it were true. can't see Lawwell allowing this to happen though.Utd, along with Hibs are now effectively feeder clubs for Celtic

hopefully bail denied
Would like to see Llambias, Sommers and Easdales pulled in for questioning also.

Really pleased that we are talking to this standard of player- never mind signing him!
No doubt Zelalem is some player- Don't know if I can see him playing on a cold Tuesday night in Greenock or Alloa though.Will such a skilful player get protection from some of our"hammer throwers" Interesting to see the loan maybe initially to January- someone very wise knows the game in Scotland is completely different from mid December - April -where skill takes second place due to mud bath pitches.

What will be will be. Kenny Dalglish was a massive Rangers fan and still joined Celtic.
Can't help thinking Stubbs is planning for the future as Ronnie the fist pumper's jacket is on a shoogly peg and Stubbs is shoe in for next manager at parkhead

IMO we really miss Ball and Zal. Ball heading to Rotherham was the bitterest pill to swallow. I'm sure Warbs thought we would sign him. Panic buys never work - Senderos is on a one year contact. hope there is a get out clause. In his defence ( scuse the pun) giving him his debut in an Old Firm game at Parkhead was an error of judgment to say least!

A number of our players did not complete or even meet other team members during pre season. You could se on Saturday our fitness levels were not as they should be. Warbs remarked on the league cup games impacting preparation -now those chickens have came home to roast -big time. Quite apparent many of our team -froze in the heated atmosphere of Parkhead- Played like Strangers rather than Rangers. I am convinced Warbs will get in right- TBH he does not have any other option -we all know the score.

true sign of madness is doing the same things over and over and expecting different results. Barton is not match fit, neither is Krancjar - bench them until they are fit. Barton seems over or underwhelmed with Scottish football - not even close to the same player he was for Burnley last season

With regards to the usual platitudes about "learning from this experience etc" Suggest Warbs plays the video of the Celtic supporters revelling in our humiliation - If that's not motivation to get their act together- then sorry lads- Glasgow Rangers is not the club for you!

Would loved to play them with Waggy up top. The bigger Hampden pitch will suit our style of football. If a draw is it a replay or penalties?
