Well tonight's game Barton strolled through it no end, Kranc just looks like he floats on air but my main positive is how good Rossiter looked in the 30mins he got! He put a tackle in and I know the opposition wasn't the best but he showed great urgency and he knows how to play a pass and also the most important thing he plays the right pass! Can't wait to see this lad get a full 90mins I think this boy is a steal at £250k.

Wilson/ Keirnan looked as comfortable as ever with Barton in front.
Our Joey strolled it tonight. He'll stroll most games up here but his quality is there for everyone to see.
Can't wait for Hamilton.

Guys really think we need to get a grip on reality. We had over 20 shots on goal and only scored 3, 1 of them a penalty. Barton was not impressive for me, he plays more sideways passes than Barry Ferguson did, . McKay? Why does he put the brakes on when he goes past even poor defenders. For me a lot of huffing and puffing to no great effect against a very poor team member
Let's hope it gets better soon?
3.) 25 Jul 2016 22:47:12
I don't want a grip on whatever reality your on bil72! The guys above are right Barton added a lot of protection to the cb's which was previously missing, rossiter likewise! Mckay wasn't as good as previous couple of games but forester more than made up for that with his energetic clever play, tavs delivery into the box was also very good.
A lot of positives to be taken even if it was against weaker opposition! We still have to go out and break these teams down.
4.) 25 Jul 2016 22:53:27
Can only beat what's in front of you! Barton and kranjkaer didn't need to come out first gear and still strolled it. I thought Barton was mom to be honest, hate guys like you, no matter what happens you'll never be happy.
5.) 25 Jul 2016 22:57:51
Bloody hell! I thought the team played well tonight and hardly had to get out of first gear. Remember most of these guys are finding their feet. As the old saying goes - you can please some of the people etc etc. But yes the lad Rossiter looks a steal. We are looking good, dare I say it!
6.) 25 Jul 2016 23:03:37
I thought Barry McKay bossed the whole game till he was taken of Fun!
7.) 25 Jul 2016 23:33:57
I was at game and thought Barton was a bit off the pace too, Mckay is great to watch and hope he goes from strenth to strenth. Stranraer are very average and the test will be when the league starts, lots of chances and ahould have had more goals but that'll come as game go on. Barton will be better as games go on too but all in all decent win! Moan the gers.
8.) 25 Jul 2016 23:46:29
Jordan Rossiter is going to be some player - I did mention him a few days ago and tinight he showed a maturity beyond his years - You can see the style of Gerrard in his play and movement - Superb signing -.
9.) 26 Jul 2016 00:47:58
Pierre, you must not have been at same game I was as Barton strolled it! In first gear I may add. Broke up play when needed, kept it simple but moving, won his tackles etc he was our best player with kranjkaer I thought, but ofcourse entitled to opinions.
10.) 26 Jul 2016 01:13:13
Didn't think Barton looked match fit and a few loose passes but his class is obvious. Thought mckay was superb. Niko oozes class too. Rossiter just slotted in to Bartons position like a glove.
11.) 26 Jul 2016 05:31:56
At the game last night and thought joey barton's passing range was very good, can't agree with a couple of the above posters that didn't think barton was good last night, although still not 100% match fit he oozed class and cruised the game and our defence looked a helluva lot tighter with his presence, kranjcar looked good in phases although a wee bit to go in fitness also, barrie mckay superb, but I've always been raving about him and I'm a big fan of his.
12.) 26 Jul 2016 08:08:50
People still need to remember that this is still really pre season. A silly competition format that has stopped us playing harder competition. The team has only conceded 1 goal. And I think in total there has been 10 shots in at our goal so it says that something has improved. Keep calm bears.
13.) 26 Jul 2016 11:11:12
Thorn76, i also thought wilson had a good game, he seems good when he has experienced players round about him, but he needs to stand on hiis own two feet, as he won't always have such comfort blankets around him, imo, he is old enough to play a good game, that's why he is vunrable.
14.) 26 Jul 2016 12:55:32
got to say for me McKay should have got man of the match but niko a close second the guys class oozed out over the pitch!
for me to say barton covered our defence well is a joke as we didn't have any defending to do.
rossiter for me would have been man of the match if he had played 90 boy reminds me of a young barry ferguson which despite what bil72 (the pessimist) says barry was a great player for rangers and if rossiter has a rangers carrer like him i'd be over the moon.
15.) 26 Jul 2016 15:49:29
Thought Barton looked overweight last night though still fit enough to stroll through a game like that. Rossiter reminds me more of Roy Keane than Stevie G. Kranjcar when fully fit will be the best of all the new boys. Think the League Cup has been good for us, for the fact that instead of meaningless friendlies, these small clubs have been competitive without ever threatening us. Its let us get our match fitness up to speed.
12 Mar 2017 00:05:10
I don't post much but comment plenty and my comments aren't through blue tinted glasses as i see all the right and wrongs of our great club!
I've bit my lip on numerous comments of our opinions of our next manager/ coach whatever they may be!
As a club we need to get behind this guy no matter what he has said in the past as being in a connected club!
We all ( me especially) was all for PLG when he joined us as well as Warburton but hey we all have egg on our faces at some point!
We need to rise again and other than Ally's last season we have continually to get stronger so let's keep doing what we do best and support our great club no matter who is in charge! Let the guy get in and settled before we hear the negativity as all I hear is mixed reactions and the guy isn't even at the helm yet!
We support the best team around and have stuck by them through the dark times time and time again so get behind them now rather than petty squabbles!
I've been a season ticket holder for 31 years and I remember the dark days of the 80s when I watched Rangers play Dundee with 12,000 people there whereas we've a full house more or less every week now!
The boy may or will bring a new style of football which most are pleading for but we still knock him for previous comments!
Give the guy a break and I wish Murty well tomorrow as he deserves a result for the rubbish he got landed with!
1.) 12 Mar 2017 03:42:08
Lo brother Pedro PL agent going for 10 in a row x **** 55 by the time your board get it together we are going for 65 haha hh

you could maybe stand a wee bit less of the shandy bhoy.

Have you got a few cans of kestrel in for the game today shandybhoy? . haha

So called best referee in Scottish football ?
I wasn't at the game today due to work commitments but just watched the highlights and WTF ( sorry for the French ) was he's he thinking about surrounding MOH penalty claim?
He was bang in line and sitting back on my comfy sofa at home 25 miles away from Ibrox I can see it's a penalty and yet he was ten yards away and can't see MOH getting tripped? I know refs get questioned week in and week out but jeez this has got to be one of the worst efforts from the blind in black ever!
On a positive note I thought MOH was quite positive today of what I seen but it's highlights and also Hyndman's through ball was a touch of visionary which we've been lacking!
1.) 22 Jan 2017 09:33:01
We should no by now that we will get nothing from Thomson, he hates us, although to be fair he doesn't particular like the crowd in the East End of Glasgow either!
2.) 22 Jan 2017 11:48:35
Refs get multiple decisions wrong in every game. Yesterday's was not that bad and i watched it live and the replay, which was from the refs angle and i couldn't tell if it was a foul. Still not convinced it was a penalty. There is no conspiracy.
3.) 22 Jan 2017 12:39:59
Definitely a penalty. Definitely no conspiracy for me.
4.) 23 Jan 2017 17:19:28
Definitely not a conspiracy but to say you're no convinced it was a penalty is baffling mate, was the most blatent of trips. Stonewaller.
31 Dec 2016 17:17:35
Before I start I'll mention it's my opinion!
Thoughts on today .
McKay played the best he's played in a long time .
Miller done his usual and ran his heart out .
Hill was solid at the back .
Fod ( can't believe I'm saying this as I've gave him a hard time in the past ) saved us on a few occasions .
Now the not so good .
Halliday hasn't kicked a ball for weeks and weeks but is loved because of his previous badge kissing exploits . Crooks must be fit and worth a punt at centre mid .
Centre halves get criticised because our right back doesn't track back and can't put a decent tackle in hence they get pulled out of position and get made to look like it's their fault ( today I lost count how many times Kiernan came up against Sinclair because Tav was pulled out of position and can't/ won't track back ) .
Midfield is light and people that follow us on a weekly basis can see this and against them this is always where the game is won! Broony yellow carded early on when we were on top so why was nobody hounding him during the game as we all know he's got a short fuse and maybe another silly challenge and he would have went!
Upfront I didn't even know Waggy came on he was that ineffective!
We have came on this year but we can all see the gulf we have bridge before we can even attempt to mention us as title contenders!
MW goes on about it's a great squad but tirelessly picks the same few that should maybe sit their arses on the bench for a few weeks or even maybe no have the jersey on again ( I'll let you make that decision about who yourselves ) !
I hear everyone talking about loan signings but what we need is a few decent in on permanent contracts ( if King is true to his word that there will be signings ) as these people need to be ready for season start!
All in all it's an improvement slowly it's an improvement but we all know some fans want instant success at our great club but after the five years we've had I think in general we are going the right way!
Now everyone have an safe night and I wish you all the best for 2017 and let's see what the future holds!
1.) 31 Dec 2016 17:29:52
Thought was an improvement tavernier can't shouldve been godson but they had that bit a class up front take dembele Sinclair out we would've won . need goalscorer.
2.) 31 Dec 2016 17:33:13
Agree with most of what u say mate apart from the improvement part. There been no improvement this year at all in my opinion.
3.) 31 Dec 2016 17:39:36
When he dropped McKay it gave him the kick up the arse to go and produce the kind of performance today I think you have a good point on dropping a few to see the reaction.
4.) 31 Dec 2016 17:46:31
Agree with the majority of your post blackwoodbear.
5.) 31 Dec 2016 18:12:47
I agree Stewarty, take Sinclair and Dembele out and you might have had a chance against nine men! LOL.
6.) 31 Dec 2016 20:58:16
The worrying thing for me is that even if we had Dembele and Sinclair in our Ranks I am not convinced that we would have won that game today. Certainly Sinclair on one flank and McKay on the other would have been an improvement but our midfield did not function and our defence had no protection. We would still have been three or four players short of a quality side!
7.) 31 Dec 2016 21:02:45
Got to agree, we nd Rossiter to b fit to b our digger and hopefully the boy jota can b the link between mid and attack. then that just leaves us a back 4 to get😂.
8.) 31 Dec 2016 22:33:45
Here here blackwoodbear! I agree with most of your points! I would also just like to wish all bears a very happy new year and all the best for 2017!Stay safe, have a good swally and let's see what 2017 brings the famous glasgow rangers. We start in earnest again in the scottish cup against motherwell at ibrox on saturday 21st of january! All the best to everyone for 2017!
06 Nov 2016 14:08:26
I'm lost for words to explain the level that we played today without making a total a55 of myself! I ain't going to slate Warbs as I'll keep those thoughts to myself but the question is if we played so well last week why change? Fod was a riot today! Kiernan and Hill back to square one! Wallace looked five yards off the pace! Midfield had no spark and Windass gave the ball away more than hit a Rangers player! Up front the chances we missed was embarrassing at best!
We need to change and wither that be at the top I don't know as I think what Warbs has done to get us here and the structure he has built can't be knocked, but, we seem one dimensional at best and when things don't click we have no other plan!
Teams now think/ know they have a chance with us and it's early days yet I know with being back in the top division but surely we are better than Ross County or the other teams we've dropped points against which allegedly we should be guaranteed 3 points!
I think we need to get back to the drawing board and either freshen up and start giving others a chance that are on the fringe of playing or have a total revamp of the formation and play a different style of football!
1.) 06 Nov 2016 14:15:51
We had the same team as last week. I don't understand his substitutions change players but keep the same formation. waghorn doesn't seem interested to me and mckay is so predictable. Shocking 2nd half performance. Hanging on at the end.
02 Nov 2016 15:50:02
So he's back! Thoughts on Joey's return?
Training with the youngsters I guess for the foreseeable future and maybe shifted on in January?
1.) 02 Nov 2016 17:15:57
Don't think you'll be far wrong there Blackwoodbear. I think he'll most definitely be moved on in january. He won't play for rangers again.
2.) 02 Nov 2016 17:58:15
Warbs I really do hope so! I for one will eat some humble pie as I'd thought he'd be a good signing for us and vocally promoted him with others on here at the time . how wrong can one be!
3.) 02 Nov 2016 20:44:00
Curious situation with JB. Surely if his 'offence' was deemed insufficient to warrant gross misconduct, so much so that the Club couldn't terminate his contract, would this perhaps suggest that the Club made a pig's ear in dealing with the situation and are now trying to save face by trying to sicken the player? If he hasn't done anything serious enough to warrant such a breach then why had it taken almost 2 months to conclude he can train with the U20's? I'm not saying JB is in the right but surely the outcome merely enforces the argument that this whole situation has been totally mismanaged.
4.) 02 Nov 2016 20:45:51
He will train with the kids, build up fitness for a move in January. Suites both parties.
I personally think the midfield is strong now with few still to come in and fight for a jersey. I would like us to go for the lad at Livi, not as a replacement but with cash joey will save us when he goes.
5.) 02 Nov 2016 20:49:31
Bbear, Hindsight is a wonderful thing but there were quite a few who thought this is exactly what might happen. Maybe not as quick, but that's joey for you. Others like yourself believed the self hype. He's been trouble everywhere he's been throughout his career, and thought he could stroll it up here for an easy payday. Well at least he got that right!
6.) 03 Nov 2016 08:02:03
well maybe he did think he could stroll it up here but let's be honest he hardly had any help the full team have been horrific from the get go. only now are we starring to perform better, even if it is slightly.
7.) 03 Nov 2016 09:49:57
What trouble did he get into at Burnley?
16 Apr 2017 11:21:47
Bowmac you having a wee sugar rush there? How and where do you get those kind of figures from? What time were you at this bar at? Was it after closing time?
14 Apr 2017 17:58:37
Albion93 and how do you know this?
14 Apr 2017 13:01:56
Callum Patterson for me! Moult would be a good squad player and I think he'd bang in a few goals for us! If Krancjer and Rossiter come back that'll be like another two new signings and I hope the young lad Rossiter can stay fit as what I seen of him start of last season he looks like a player we're crying out for in that def mid role!
01 Jan 2017 19:00:56
My point is ( and we all have an opinion ) we tend to berate the two centre halves for sloppy defending and yes yesterday I have no choice but to agree! My opinion is throughout the season is that our centre halves get more pressure by the way Warbs sets up with two attacking fullbacks ( and it pains me to include Wallace in this ) as the two centre halves get left stranded to cover far to often! Looking back at yesterday on TV as you miss a lot being at the game but how many times did Kiernan have a one on one with Sinclair on the left? Where was Tav? If we are going to play this system we need fullbacks that's going to track back and cover, as much as Waldo tries his counterpart on the right finds this difficult! I think the set up we had yesterday was the right formation but we are about three players away from actually playing this to a greater effect!
20 Sep 2016 22:28:41
Well according to Bartim he's going to be the next England manager 😂😂 he's a total rat that thought he could come up here to the diddy league ( as he thought and be the king of Scotland ) . guy is a tool and I'm first to kick myself in the ball and say my posts of past that he could come here and dominate the league were way off the mark! If he or anyone thinks they are bigger than my great club and cause rubbish when we're on the right track back to where we belong can fooking do one!
On another point the Timothy's on here pointing out how bad we are but yet say they have the better squad and better players ( 😂😂😂😂) In Inverness? Yeah right Inverness brought you lot back down to earth.
15 Apr 2017 17:34:45
Think maybe it's not Lee's place that's under threat but maybe McKays as I can see the young lad moving into that role or either Dodoo as McKay hasn't kicked a decent ball for most of the season!
28 Jan 2017 21:54:28
I don't think any of Hyndman passes went backwards! It was a joy to watch when he had the ball and even though a few of his passes wee sideways he never gave the ball away and most importantly a high percentage of passes went forward!
21 Jan 2017 23:06:52
Blue Nose I agree to an extent but when you have a team sitting with 11 behind the ball and smothering the game even the best teams out there struggle to break it down . On the Hodson issue I've spoke many times on here of how much better than Tav he is as I believe ( even though he scored many a goal in the championship for us ) another badge kisser like Halliday ( not to that extreme though I may add ) and survives on past glories . We have a nucleus of a decent team here if the manager chooses to drop his favs and give other/ better players a chance .
27 Dec 2016 21:07:08
Hodson Kiernan Wilson Wallace ( if fit )
Waggy Garner Miller
Crooks isn't going to be ready to next season and I'd love Rossiter to be fit for the game as he's a natural in def midfield but I'd reckon he's another that needs a good pre season under his belt!
We need someone with a midfield engine as much as I like Halliday I just don't think he's the one but he plays for the jersey every week ( apart from putting the ball into row z the other week lol )
No matter who plays the game always gets won in midfield so we need to get that right firstly!
09 Nov 2016 23:36:58
Shadow for me I'd take anything above £800k for him as I think we have more with Garner as he has more bite about him and doesn't hide ( maybe not as prolific as Waggy in the championship but it's a different league ) and to be fair Waggy had a lot of penalties in his tally! We need to look at better options in January as a CF as no matter how much I love and respect Kenny for why he brings to our great club we need more! Wither we can get this in January or ride it out and hope second place is ours ( I only hope ) but I don't think Waggy is our future even though he got us into this league!
