Some of you lot on here are utterly mental and need you heads examined! The ones calling for Pedro's head are the same ones who were calling for him to empty out all Warburtons dross, and are now the same ones greetin because that dross is scoring goals for their new clubs! You were also the ones shouting for Warburton and Weir to be given the job in the first place.

Have you leaned nothing from last 4 years? How many times do we have to go through this cycle before you people understand you can't just buy a new team over the summer and expect it to work within a couple of weeks? So we sack Pedro, bring in The next manager who plays a different style of football and doesn't like the players Pedro bought. He then spends 4 months trying to fit square pegs in round holes, then in January he empties 7 of Pedro's players out and brings in another new team, who YOU expect to hit the ground running!
Do you see the pattern here guys?

I've said it before and I'll say it again, if we get within 10-15 points of Celtic this season and maybe win a cup, that will be huge progress! We can then add 2 or 3 quality players to this team, instead of trying to build another new one!

Wind your necks in and get on with it!
Pedro is here for the foreseeable future so you might as well try and help him and our club and get behind him!

We're already 5 Point's behind it'll soon be more you are kidding yourself if you think Pedro has what it takes.

2.) 20 Aug 2017 16:28:10
So what's the alternative? Do we just keep hiring and firing managers and building a new team every season until somebody gets it right and wins their first 3 games?
I'm not the one that's kidding myself! A large proportion of our support needs a serious reality check!

3.) 20 Aug 2017 17:05:55

you are spot on! there is no quick fix 1 step at a time!

4.) 20 Aug 2017 17:11:20
if we get within 10-15pts if celtic and win a cup.

with the greatest of respect i think you are either at the wind up or missed your medication today

we are a country mile away from either of those

i'm not sure if you actually watch rangers or not but that's one of the worst hearts team i've seen at ibrox in 30yrs yet we still struggled to make any decent chances against them. we looked flat, one paced and ran out of ideas in the first half

Hibs who just got promoted tore us apart at home and btw they were well on top before jack got sent off. there's a reality check

aberdeen and our smelly neighbours have both strengthened and have 9pts out of 9 along with st johnstone none of whom we have even played yet

2 of pedro's marquee signings who cost serious money can't even get on the pitch - that worries me. the first defeat at home to aberdeen in 27yrs, the record hammering at home in the OF game and the utter humiliation of our worst ever European result yet fans who highlight all of these as genuine concerns need a reality check.

i beg to differ

5.) 20 Aug 2017 17:16:58
A voice of reason big j. It'll never catch on you know but I'm with you on this one. Yes I could be happier with some of the decisions Pedro has made but we must give him time for his team to gel properly. Constant change isn't good for anyone concerned.
Disappointed about yesterday's result if I'm honest and do think we need a bit more up front.

6.) 20 Aug 2017 17:19:37
Everyone needs to calm down. This team are still gelling together. Last years team was a shambles, we had no idea what was going on. Every player was playing their own game running around like headless chickens and we were getting dominated and torn apart often.

This team are def more organised and will get better.

I' will agree that we have let too many attackers go and would have kept garner and waghorn unless w replace the was brought in.

We should have replaced McKay with walker straight away aswell.

I think we are def a few attaching players short going into the season. I'd Like us to try and get hyndman back and sign walker and a couple of others.

7.) 20 Aug 2017 17:48:24
We need to give Pedro a couple of seasons not a couple of weeks. Big-j70 and Bigandy are bang on. We need to build the team and it takes time. But I tell you what, it will be quicker if we get behind them and support them, take the pressure of them and let them play. DUnbarBlue

8.) 20 Aug 2017 19:09:25
Yes take one step at a time but it has to be a forward step, we are going backwards, this time last season after 3 games we had 7 points. Are you talking about giving him 2 seasons irrespective of results? If you are I say its you that are mental and need to get a grip.

9.) 20 Aug 2017 19:49:33
Didn't read the whole of the OP's post after calling PC's critics 'utterly mental' and inaccurtely claiming we were all calling for him to 'empty out all Warburtons dross'.

Speaking for myself I never once called for an emptying out of Warburton's signings.

As for the season so far: the worst ever result for a British club in Europe - and I'm including NI and Welsh teams - and already 5 points behind Celtic with not a single Bear thinking we'll win the league. We have actually went backwards since the departure of Warbs, who incidentally seems to be doing rather well at Forest.

10.) 20 Aug 2017 20:25:21
I'm no mental 👹😀

11.) 20 Aug 2017 20:28:40
Wasn't long before someone said let the team gel. The same nonsense that was said about Warburtons team this time last year and after a better start than this season. People need to realize that the manager is clueless and some of the players brought in are worse than the ones who have left.

Pedro has had an appalling record so far with a Spanking at home to Celtic, a complete lie down to them in a semi final, the most embarrassing result in European history and a poor record at home against the better teams. It's only going to go one way and it isn't closer to them.

It is painfully obvious we needed more of a goal threat well obvious to everyone but the manager. Only 2 shots on target yesterday against one of the poorest Hearts sides ever to visit Ibrox in years.

12.) 20 Aug 2017 23:38:36
I'm disappointed with lack of patience with our support. i'm not happy with 1 point from 2 home games but we can't keep firing managers after a few games. Every team that has went down that road goes backwards. let's give Pedro a chance and if no progress is being made by turn of year then board can have a look at things after all if we don't get behind team then what chance have we got of progressing.

13.) 21 Aug 2017 00:04:17
Have a look at Alex Fergusons record at Man Utd initially. Shockingly poor but he got time. Time equalled success. Rangers historically have managers for a long time. which gave success. i'm not saying that PC is the answer but this Donald Trump hire and fire scenario is flawed at best. He is under huge pressure and yet has the balls to give Hardie a go. Lots of you have said on here to give Hardie a go! My point of view is Miller onto bench and Morelos and Herrera up front. 4-4-2 is how it needs to be for now. If teams play one up front against us go 2-5-3.before u all kick off its a defensive 4-5-1 :)

14.) 21 Aug 2017 01:19:27
To all you gellers. Wait till the team gels was the mantra for the first half of last season until we realised that Warburton wasn't up to the job. I just don't see Pedro being up to it either. He looks like a lost soul, in fact I call him Perdu. I agree that we can't keep changing managers, so I can see a long slog until his contract runs out or he falls on his sword. But please will you all stop telling us to wait till the team to gels. It ain't going to happen and the manager canny manage.

15.) 21 Aug 2017 04:53:45
I can't believe all the people on here wanting rid of PC. If you keep getting rid of managers after a few bad results, guess what guys, it'll be the same with every new manager and the players he wants to bring to the club. As a club we'll never get anywhere, please give the guy time.

16.) 21 Aug 2017 10:10:40
aye we were waiting for the team to gel last year and it didn't happen. that's because the midfiled warburton brought in 2 of them got injured and the scouse idiot got sacked. we were then left with holt and halliday until January where we got another midfield in Hyndman and toral.



21 Jul 2017 14:31:31
1st time poster, and as a Rangers fan and season ticket holder of 35 years I'm utterly embarrassed at some of the so called Rangers fans posting on here and calling for the mangers head at this stage!
1st things first - Pedro's record last season needs to completely ignored. He inherited a bunch of players who were bought specifically by Warbuton to play a certain style of football. Most weren't good enough to achieve even that. What chance did Pedro have trying to get them to play to his preferred style - absolutely none.
Secondly, the Progres game came at a time when the majority of our new signing had been at the club for less than 2 weeks (some less than a week) . Granted, it was a dreadful performance, but some degree of perspective needs to be taken here. We hit the bar 3 times in the second half. Had any of those chances gone in, we'd have gone through.
Thirdly, anybody that knows anything about football, knows not to place any emphasis on pre season friendlies, particularly bounce games.
Time to wise up guys. Give the manager and the players a chance, and get behind the team. If we don't, they have no chance of any form of success, because they'll be on the back foot before they even take to the park on a Saturday.


1.) 21 Jul 2017 14:46:10
Best post in long time well said think a lot that post here don't support rangers just scared Tim's

2.) 21 Jul 2017 15:42:33
Big-J70 if your a season ticket holder for 35 years then you'll know that the fans have called for managers heads that had far better records than pedros.
second, the progress game is the worst result in our history and it happened on pedros watch, if the players were not ready then simply don't play them and play a team that is ready.
Thirdly no-one is placing too much emphasis on bounce games but on top of two humpings by them one by a record score, a fist defeat at Ibrox in 26 years by the sheep and two terrible results against a bunch of amateurs then the emphasis changes.
I'll be at Ibrox tomorrow cheering my team on win or lose but that does not stop me having ( and expressing ) MY opinion on here and if that embarrasses you then i apologise.

3.) 21 Jul 2017 16:39:20
Well said Big J-70 I was one of the fans shouting for his head on here and still think few results have been highly unacceptable but all things considered we have no choice but to get behind the team and manager . We can all criticise but that achieves nothing so tomorrow a big loud support is what's needed.

4.) 21 Jul 2017 19:11:54
Absolute garbage bigj70 re Ped's record needing to be ignored last season - he should not have been brought in at that time if it was inevitable he couldn't get warbs players to play his way - why would we bring someone in to fail so spectacularly? He is a professional manager and should have done better - G Murty showed him how to play against the untouchables but he ignored it which seems both arrogant and foolish considering what subsequently happened. I am a supporter with over 40 years of experience watching Rangers ; I will always support my team and I pray Ped is a success but it is important that debate and comment are not stifled ; we can all recognise bleating whining knee jerk reactions for what they are; we can all appreciate that time must be given and patience encouraged but none of us can say this is the start we wanted and to acknowledge that is no act of treachery - sticking your head in the and and your a*#e in the air would be, though

5.) 21 Jul 2017 20:52:29

If you think that last seasons results don't count then your just not in touch with the reality of football management. Which is astonishing seeing as though you say you have been a season ticket holder for 35 years. Any record defeats or shocking displays in cup semi finals against Celtic are always remembered and will always be used against any manager. Throw in the most embarrassing result ever for a Scottish side in Europe and the scrutiny on the manager and his record as manager gets more intense. You can pretend those results didn't happen last year but in the real world they will be used and no matter what you think they do matter

6.) 22 Jul 2017 10:58:38
Big j hope you right but have huge doubts in pedro

7.) 22 Jul 2017 11:15:57
Jyf. The team that lost so heavily to Celtic and also lost to Aberdeen at Ibrox for the first time in 26 years, was basically the same team that played in the Championship the season before. Had we played Celtic and Aberdeen in each of the cups during that Championship season and lost in the same manner and by the same score, would you have been calling for Warburtons head before he finished the season and got us promoted?
Re your point about Progres game, hindsight is a wonderful thing!

8.) 22 Jul 2017 11:39:36
Stevie fyi there is no such thing as a scared tim. They are extinct, cease to be, just like the parrot scetch. We all know now u are no longer the challenge and aberdeen are. Read on these pages and 99 % believe that they just want to close the gap.

9.) 22 Jul 2017 12:37:23
Big J you might have had a season ticket for 35 years but you obviously have not been paying attention recently, warbs beat the tims at hampden remember? pedro lost twice in a week with two of the most abysmal performances I have witnessed. HINDSIGHT are you kidding me that was the point of my post, pedro lost heavily twice to them and once to the sheep so the writing was on the wall BEFORE the progress game and it remains on the wall no hindsight needed on my part. I've said it before but you are going to have a good season where I'm expecting to be squirming on my seat week in week out so good luck I really really hope I am wrong.

2 players had medicals in Edinburgh on Friday. A friend works at the private hospital they attended. She, quite rightly, refused to say who they were. I’m assuming it’s these 2 tho.

Seems press conference had already happened and no external investment is expected this summer. £6 to be raised via a share issue.

Any possibility we could end up with Warnock as No 1 and Stevie G as No 2?
I’d take that scenario in a heartbeat!

I really wish people would give up with this Alex McLeish pish! He's done absolutely nothing in the last 6 years to suggest he's still got it as a manager, either in the U. K. Or abroad.
Pedro Caixinha is our manager and he's trying to build a team . Get off the mans back, give him a chance and get behind him and our team. Dave King was so very right when he talked about the huge difference between Rangers Supporters and Rangers Fans!

Jyf, there in lies the problem I'm afraid.
There is very little sense of realism amongst so many of our fans. There is virtually no chance of us winning the league this season. If we finish second, and get within 12 points of Celtic, it will be a very successful season in my opinion. We need 6 or 7 of our new signings to be successful this season and add 2 or 3 quality players the season after and aim to get within 6 points of Celtic in that season and so on, and so on.
