We 100% need to get about the midfield the whole game, only way of neutralising Celtic.

Hope Murts knows this.


1.) 15 Apr 2018 14:55:00
Well you are right but unfortunately that's no happening so far

2.) 15 Apr 2018 15:10:02
2-0 game over, wish the season would just end right now!

3.) 15 Apr 2018 15:19:35
Neutralise Celtic 😂😂 we canni even string 3 passes together, f***ing joke!

4.) 15 Apr 2018 15:22:43
No talking about cost of season tickets Big Chief😜😜

5.) 15 Apr 2018 15:25:04
Mccrorie not big enough to be a centre half he's getting bullied, Martin is just utter rubbish! Fotheringham isn't good enough. dorrans not been in the game. Halliday is off thank god, docerty is shitting it fi that ugly ba****d broon.
Murphy flatters to deceive, Candias few mistakes. Morelos has no confidence, and murty looks defeated!
If u disagree your not watching the game! I'm being brutally honest that's the worst rangers side I've ever seen!
The either buck up get stuck in or get to ****!
I'm sick of these heartless displays of players who are not fit to wear that jersey!

6.) 15 Apr 2018 15:28:04
The only way out of this situation is new ownership because a total rebuilding job is required which will takes tens of millions! No heart, no energy, no pace, no quality, and absolute shambles and Celtic will win 10 in a row easily!

7.) 15 Apr 2018 15:47:06
I am disgusted at what we have become. We are horrible to watch and no heart end of and the sad thing is they are no great shakes. I don't know what the answer is but its not what I see on show just now player wise or manager? .

8.) 15 Apr 2018 15:58:15
Murty has got to go. No belief from the kick off.

9.) 15 Apr 2018 16:27:34
Need to get somebody in now asses the team who has a future and who has to go goat bullied every position today
Wee need goals and yet keeps one up top and doesn't bring on miller or Cummings windass was better of on the bench hard times but king needs to let fans no as renewals
Are out goat what thay deserve

10.) 15 Apr 2018 16:33:40
Sorry for so many posts but I’m an angry bear! Unless new owners come in and provide serious investment then I will not be renewing me and my boys season book!

11.) 15 Apr 2018 16:36:14
Tactically inept today. Every team including those in champions league that give Sceptic that level of respect and sit off, play right in to their hands. We were only weeks on from a game where we matched them for intensity and should have put them to bed. To hear a rangers manager in a pre match interview talking about ‘having to respect our opposition’ is a disgrace. Would Walter have ever uttered those words - never. Murty has to take the blame for lying down before kick off. A very very sore one to take yet again today

12.) 15 Apr 2018 16:53:54
Is this what it takes to get ride of a manager to be humiliating in front of the c--p from the east.

13.) 15 Apr 2018 17:10:05
Tactically naive why he didn’t stick o 4231 with Dorrans as an attacking midfielder or go for a 5 22 with Alves Mcroror an Martin centre John Tav wing backs Docherty and Dorrans centre midfield and Cummings Morelos up front we have decent players but need a tactical manager who can install belief in his players

14.) 15 Apr 2018 17:20:35
Dorrans has been absolutely eggplant since he signed for us, was aubergine before he got injured and why he’s been flung back in recently god only knows! If Murty is stil in charge then I won't be renewing, another season of lies and underhand tactics from this spineless board and team! Really embarrassing

15.) 15 Apr 2018 18:14:47
Fraz, you gave it to Halliday, WHY? he done nothing repeat nothing wrong martin and mcgrorie were a bombscare all game, a team of Hallidays would not of rolled over and let them tickle our bellies like that bunch of pussies so I ask you now to quantify your criticism of Halliday, or are you just jumping on the bandwagon.

16.) 15 Apr 2018 18:15:18
Shambles to be called a Rangers team.

Total clear out required.

Sick of seeing Foderingham making his Hollywood dives when the ball goes past him easily.

Candeias is fast becoming the new Dalcio

Murphy a one trick pony gets the ball on the left and runs across the pitch everytime, can't take a man on the wing and beat him.

Murty is what he is. a under 20s coach.
Needed goals today and he still persisted with one up front.

Windass is Accrington Stanley class and won't get any better.

Dave King sort this shambles out or p**s off and let someone who knows what they doing come in.
It's now embarrassing to be a blue nose.

17.) 15 Apr 2018 18:22:48
dadoprs0 agree 100%

18.) 15 Apr 2018 18:46:43
Rangers were an absolute joke today. Haliday was a disgrace - yes he was taken off before half time and for a player that is embarrassing but not half as embarrassing as letting the Celtic midfield stroll about as if it was the Glasgow fair holiday. He was unfortunate that Murty couldn't make more subs as I'm sure he would also have swapped Martin and Dorrans as well they were also poor. But a criticism of Murty would be that why would we expect any more from these players? Dorrans, Martin, Murphy have been totally rubbish! Dorrans can't pass or retain the ball! Martin can't defend! and Murphy can't go passed a cone!

19.) 15 Apr 2018 19:12:51
Question zikos, were Rangers better or worse after Halliday went off?

20.) 15 Apr 2018 19:21:46
Lets take stock of what happened and just relax.

We got carried away by what i mentioned previously as a good run vs bottom six and bottom SPFL teams in the cup. Scoring for fun and (like me) thinking we could challenge them. What a come down from me putting 50 on us a few weeks ago to win the league. WE ARE average at best and as one of our guys has said. LEEDS UTD potentially. MAD MASSIVE support bleed BLUE and believe every year. WE ARE A SHAMBLES.

Now what we need is not what everyone else wants, massive clearout. A guy on here recently said we are the best attacking team in the league and i heckeled him. Since his statistic related reply i see us as only 4 2-3 mil signings away from knocking that smile off Brenda's face. Then again its 12 mil of players.

We also need an i hate to say it a Brendan Rodgers type manager. Hate me i hate myself.

21.) 15 Apr 2018 19:57:07
Bigcliff your having a laugh brenda isn't all that! we are rank rotten there's no getting away from that but even with our squad a good manager should be closer to that mob than we are i agree that we probably need new owners but above all we need a good manager Steve Clark is the best manager in the league this season very average squad well above average results I'd go for him weather he's a celtic fan or not i think his career means more to him than who he supported as a kid.

22.) 15 Apr 2018 20:23:18
I couldn't agree with everyone more. This might be one of the worst rangers performances I have seen. No energy, No Heart, No pride. It all started with Murty sounding defeated before the game even started. Something serious has to be done to restore the club back to where we belong. The Directors, management, and players clearly aren't getting the message. Its lie after lie, season after season.

23.) 15 Apr 2018 20:42:36
Murty under 20's yes, manager no, why would you defend against them? I have never seen the rangers give so much respect to anyone and especially them. king stand up or go now.

24.) 15 Apr 2018 21:02:58
We, as fans need a stronger voice and seat at the table. King and company just don't get it. What do we need to do for the board to get the message?

25.) 15 Apr 2018 21:04:12
Scotland is now a one team country, the only way any team other than Celtic will win the league is if Celtic are invited into another association!
Celtic's financial muscle is based on years of forward planning and cannot be matched or overtaken!

26.) 15 Apr 2018 21:39:56
Charles67 that's a lot of rubbish celtic will probably have another clean sweep this season granted but they are far from perfect since Steve Clarke took over at killie they have secured more points than anyone else does that seem like a team that uncatchable? They aren't a great side they've just had it too easy for the last 6 years

27.) 15 Apr 2018 21:40:04
Charles67 absolute nonsense, Celtic fans said the same thing when their own club was on its knees and rangers were running away with the league and in Europe every year until a certain mr McCann came in and changed the philosophy and structure of their club. Exactly what is now required at Ibrox, yes investment and an experienced quality manager are minimal requirements going forward but to suggest Celtic cannot be caught is naive on your part. Swings and roundabouts!

28.) 15 Apr 2018 21:41:05
Jyf- Rangers were equally as bad with Haliday as without. That saying, he was lucky to get 40 mins!

He has had his turn and simply isn't good enough.

I have said it on here a few times. We will not beat Celtic until our central 3 is equal to or better than theirs.

Basically we need to have a middle 3 better than Brown, Ncham and Rogic. I think Docherty can be part of that but I don't think we have another 2 players capable of stepping up.

Back to the point - Yes it was a shame for Haliday to be taken off before half time, but he only has himself to blame, if he was performing to the standard expected of any Rangers player he would have stayed on the pitch but he didn't!

29.) 15 Apr 2018 21:49:17
Sorry guys, my statement is fact, there are no longer swings and roundabouts in Scotland.
Celtic are long gone from every other team. sorry!

30.) 16 Apr 2018 00:25:45
Halliday was taken off, but even a half decent performance and he'd have been left on. Dorrans, Martin take your pick.

I actually thought he'd step up today, but unfortunately showed again he'll never be good enough, like many others.

31.) 16 Apr 2018 06:46:44
Zikos half decent like martin you mean

32.) 16 Apr 2018 07:56:57
Zeek take a breath. I'm all for supporting Young Docherty. Then once I take my blue glasses off he is very very ordinary. Great intensity but ultimately another headless chicken.



21 Mar 2018 21:18:21
Issues log
- We clearly can't play the same formation every game, it gives opposition managers great preparation. This is basic sense.
- If we don't sign Bates, that will be a disaster, he is on our books right now.
- We are tolerating shocking player attitudes, the players gave up on Saturday.
- We have a rookie manager.


1.) 21 Mar 2018 21:52:17
Agree on all bar Bates. Painfully ordinary. Not good enough for Raith Rovers but good enough for us?

2.) 21 Mar 2018 23:47:40
You might be right, but we shouldn't have to pay too much and I see potential.

3.) 22 Mar 2018 08:24:48
Don't knock Bates he's good needs to improve yes and he will I'm sure of it . I would have him in every time way before Alves or Cardoso couple of duds in my opinion. Bates is strong brave decent speed and can only get better with age well on his side.

4.) 22 Mar 2018 12:45:31
Ye agree Robbie Alves Cardoso are they real duds Bates young lad learning his trade will only get better

5.) 22 Mar 2018 14:53:51
Bates is rubbish. If he was foreign he's be ridiculed. Much like Murty, who has a suspiciously similar record to Pedro before him.

I long for the day when names like Bates and Murty are a distant memory. No disrespect to Murty, who tries his hardest and is a great clapper (almost non stop for every match) but this is Glasgow Rangers.

6.) 22 Mar 2018 21:54:44
Bates is shocking people keep saying he will improve but cardoso is a dud yet there only 2years age difference between them so if bates is rubbish but will improve how will cardoso not? David bates would never get into Portuguese under 21s or 23 teams that's for sure yet cardoso does and Alves is in the Portuguese national team played at the euros in the semi finals against wales just a year and a half ago yet bates is better than both of them that's laughable. None of them have been great but bates is the worst of the 3 I'd say and I totally agree if he was foreign he would be getting pelters.

7.) 22 Mar 2018 23:48:46
He is very young, built like a tank and got motm against the Tim's. All he needs to do is hoof the ball up the pitch when under pressure.
Potential is what you make of it, if he focuses on his game he could be great.

8.) 25 Mar 2018 16:59:41
Deanobear, the diffrence between bates and the players you mention is quite simple. the players pedro brought from abroad have never played football the way it is played in scotland, the foriegn players were used to a more relaxted style of football, in our league its all about kick and run, not much to it, which makes me think we in scotland have got it wront, that's how we haven't been to a euro tourny or world cup for a long time, even our clubs get gubbed in euro just about every time, the s. f. a. are neding to rip it up and start again, maybe with some retired european players to keep them right, how many of the current s. f. a. board members have played football to an exceptional standered.

9.) 25 Mar 2018 20:47:54
BAtes has been exceptional since the turn of the year and had a lot to do with our small run of form suddenly he gets injured we looked weak in the old firm and can't keep boy d out she the boy is average please stop turning on everyone as soon as I hear some rumours he doesn't want to sign the it's embarrassing the boy has been the best c b in the league

If you can afford a new season ticket, you are part of the bears, if you can't afford it you are not a true teddy bear.

That's the reaction I got to complining about the rise.


Rangers rumours posters are fickle.


1.) 11 Apr 2018 21:10:33
A bit of a chip on your shoulder BigChief! 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧
You can’t always blame the system!

2.) 11 Apr 2018 21:28:10
BigChief, you got stick for blaming King because you've not had a pay rise for 3 years.

3.) 11 Apr 2018 21:52:48
Jyf still earn six figures, come from a working class shankhill family, not forgot my roots.

4.) 11 Apr 2018 22:15:35
So you earn at least £100,000 and you can’t afford a £450 season ticket. hmmm think I smell a 🐀somewhere!

5.) 11 Apr 2018 22:30:03
Obviously I can afford it colster, unlike you I actually think about the consequences of raising above inflation.

I refuse to renew on principle.

6.) 11 Apr 2018 22:38:20
Colster, I value money, like king. It is a great asset which can be a sanctuary when times are bad. Yes, I can afford a season ticket.
I have a family and no job security, but savings and currently earning six figures.
My family comes before Rangers, and always will.
I am from a hand to mouth family and appreciate how hard it is on people, Rangers are what keeps some people alive believe it or not.
That is why I am angry.

7.) 11 Apr 2018 22:42:18
so you earn over £100000 and grunge a 5% rise in season tickets but if you are a Rangers fan which I wonder about I suppose you want success but refuse to pay towards it aye right

8.) 11 Apr 2018 22:47:56
Thinkaboutit, I will still go to games and go to the Rangers shop before the games.
I refuse to encourage the board by putting 550 up from for a club deck seat. That is all! Wind your neck in!
You are stuck up!

9.) 11 Apr 2018 22:50:22
Well if we were managed correctly we could have won the league this season, it's just us paying for King's bad decisions.
Solid manager who makes the players put their life on the line would have shown Celtic for what they are, lucky!

10.) 11 Apr 2018 22:51:41
It’s actually below inflation as RPI last year was 3% with no increase in season tickets. RPI this year is 4% with an increase to season tickets at 5%. That would actually make it still -2% over 2 years. like I said if you don’t want to renew that is your perogative, I unlike you will be renewing as over the last 2/ 3 years the board have been fair with ticket pricing so I see it as a bit of loyalty on my part.

11.) 11 Apr 2018 23:03:44
Aye mate fair enough but I heard some people got hit by 10%.
I respect anyone who wants to renew, I will still put in too but no ST for me this season.

12.) 11 Apr 2018 23:04:33
Nah. I’m not buying it Big chief! For a start a club deck st isn’t £550.👀👀Think we’ve got a live one here boys!

13.) 12 Apr 2018 06:43:07

14.) 12 Apr 2018 06:46:17
bigchief, you won't buy a season ticket because you're looking after your family but you want the players to put their lives on the line for Rangers have I got that right?

15.) 12 Apr 2018 08:17:25
The guy is correct and I won’t have one for next season either. I feel many will do likewise

16.) 12 Apr 2018 08:18:52
I am surprised BigChief isn’t complaining about the 5.5% rise in gas or even more the Scottish Government putting his tax up on the wages he is earning that I could only dream about? Sit down in a dark room mucker and chill! 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

17.) 12 Apr 2018 11:42:05

Haven't had a payrise in 3 years.
King can gtf.

I think your gripe is with your employer. not King!

2.) 10 Apr 2018 15:27:04
Unless you work for Mr King, what's your problem with HIM?

3.) 10 Apr 2018 16:55:21
Problem is my income is effectively dropping and he is putting prices up over inflation.
It's bang out of order.

4.) 10 Apr 2018 17:08:38
Colster, obviously I am not happy with my employer, a lot of us fans are in the same place. The economy is stagnant and king is punting up prices way above inflation.
It's pure arrogance. Not renewing till I get a 5% pay rise and Murty quits.

5.) 10 Apr 2018 17:26:39
big chief . I think Rangers have been fair over the last few years with ticket pricing. I believe they stayed the same price this year. We are all in the same boat but as we are demanding success unfortunately that comes at a price.

6.) 10 Apr 2018 19:50:55
I can’t see the problem with 5% rise we need investment we need better players to bring success so I’m willing to put my extra few quid in, my ticket has went up about £50 I’m Sandy Jardine rear so it’s less than £1 a week not a lot

7.) 12 Apr 2018 12:31:21
Big chief

stop going - problem solved.

On Chrome you can get an add-in for free called Hola. It changes the country that the browser is based in e. g USA. Free and sets up in a few minutes.

Rangers TV let's you watch the match live outside the UK and Ireland.




06 Apr 2018 20:42:25
We should all reserve judgement on Cummings until he gets a fair run out. Murty has been really unfair on him playing 10 mins at the end and not using him for what he is. He's purely a striker, not a hold up guy.
I hope he can start pinging them into the back of the net.


1.) 06 Apr 2018 22:23:12
Graeme murty is trying to impress the rangers directors, to get the rangers manager's job, on a permanent basis, beyond this season! So murty is going to set out his team to play in a system that he believes and wants them to play in! Thus why murty doesn't start cummings often as cummings can't play the 1 striker through the middle role, whereas morelos can! Murty has to do what he believes will get him the permanent job! He totally believes in the 4-2-3-1 system! We can't expect him to do it someone else's way, it has to be his own way, for which he'll be judged, at the end of the season! That's the way any manager would work it, ie. there way!

2.) 06 Apr 2018 22:39:22
You are indeed right, he should do it his way. but you have more chance if getting the managers job next season. The decision has already been made. No idea who the next manager will be tho.

3.) 06 Apr 2018 22:40:08
Surely Murty won’t get the job. He is clearly well short of what’s required and needs to go back to the u20s. We need experience not a rookie with no managerial experience

4.) 06 Apr 2018 23:30:11
Can't understand the need for Cummings tbh. If we had team like the 90s he would be devastating up front. WE DONT!
We can't afford the luxury of a penalty box striker, we are not that good YET!
We need a workhorse i. e. Morelos to create space make the opposing defence work hard and bring others into the game. Cummings doesn't and cannot do that.

5.) 07 Apr 2018 00:44:05
If Cummings doesn't fit into the system Murty wants the team to play, why bring him to the club?

6.) 07 Apr 2018 05:49:59
If murty is trying to impress the directors or anyone else, he's not doing a very good job. The job is too big for him.

7.) 07 Apr 2018 08:53:38
Dutch, you say you know the decision has been made already, that graeme murty isn't getting the manager's job, but you don't have any idea who's getting the job? I would have thought if you knew one half of the managerial situation then you would know the other half! My honest assessment on the rangers manager's job is, don't rule graeme murty out mate!

8.) 07 Apr 2018 10:53:37
I like Cummings but he has been more than a tad overhyped. Would like to see Dodoo on bench today and get a run. No idea what Herriera brings to the playing squad.

9.) 07 Apr 2018 11:50:32
Really don't get why we would bring Cummings in if he's not the type of player that guy Murty wants.

10.) 07 Apr 2018 12:22:43
Someone said Murty 12 month rolling. That's what I think will happen. Still need clear out for Murty to have his squad. Looking forward to see who we get in summer.

11.) 07 Apr 2018 12:56:46
If that happens we are in trouble. Murty has to leave imminently imo. Not up to the job.
He was given an opportunity to prove himself and failed his chance.

12.) 07 Apr 2018 13:25:52
I agree Cummings can play the loan striker tool he isn’t strong enough I think Morelos has been chastised for the miss against Celtic but his overall play is better than any other striker at the club



31 Mar 2018 18:44:30
Playing dorrans as holding midfielder?! Cummings playing behind Morelos for 10 mins at the end.
Murty said the players were well drilled on what to expect, well everyone and his dog knew what formation Murty was going to play. No clue. Out now!


1.) 31 Mar 2018 21:53:30
Agree totally when are we going to play dorrans in his right position never a holding midfielder much better just behind the strikers

Murty is a half-decent orator at press conferences, and a weak manager at match time.

We need tall and strong players for games against physical bottom half teams. The fannies like Windass, Fods, Martin, Goss can't cope.

I would be starting Alnwick and looking for a higher quality replacement in the Summer.

When we got PUMPED by Hamilton at Ibrox I lost faith in Murty. I took my wife for her first game, she thinks we are shit. Spent easy hundred quid.

There are fans scraping by, paying top dollar to go to Ibrox and the players give up! That is not the ethos of The Glasgow Rangers Football Club.

Halliday tried his best, never a starting player. Holt gives his all. Murty used Halliday as a scapegoat for his inept tactics.
After a couple of minutes I saw Brown with space, it was clear nobody was man marking him. Tactical mistakes. Clearly should have played Alves and Martin at CB with McCrorie in front. He says we will learn, well we are actually getting worse.

A lot worse than those two, Windass, Fods, Martin should not be on the payroll.
