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.


1.) 25 Jul 2016 21:51:31
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.

So the Fat Cashley has put Newcastle up for sale so let's see if the deal with the Bears is as dead as we are led to believe! Did we think he still has a few strings to pull with our club?


1.) 16 Oct 2017 18:16:59
Who cares about him, there is no chance of him coming back anyway. We need to worry more about King and his plans. Remember, King and the three bears have a lot of loans with the club and they will want to push through another resolution at the AGM to allow them to convert the loans to shares. We also need more investment and I don’t think King has any appetite for us anymore, nor the required funds. Finding a new investor is a must for us.

2.) 16 Oct 2017 18:18:34
What? No.

3.) 16 Oct 2017 18:50:48
Briggsboy! I'm not caring about Cashley my comment was about let's see if the board has been truthful with all us fans surrounding Ashley and the deal been written off! I for one don't want the fat rat anywhere near my club or do I care for him one bit, but what I do care about that the current board has told us all the truth about the deal being quashed!

4.) 16 Oct 2017 19:56:21
do u think king and the three bears would let someone in the pushed so hard to get out, come on

5.) 16 Oct 2017 20:12:25
Blackwoodbear, why mention Ashley then if you don’t care about him? He has sold his shares and agreed a legal deal on the Commercial shops. Has the current board lied about anything? Stop being paranoid, that’s for the other mob.

6.) 17 Oct 2017 00:11:38
The paranoia is rippin right oot of some people on here, and all because the fat man is fed up trying to make Newcastle a force. Get a hold of yourselves People. The fat bogeyman has gone and won't be back

7.) 17 Oct 2017 07:11:09
Why would he be gone? There's money to be made, think about it

8.) 17 Oct 2017 11:22:55
I heard a wee story he wants to open a big casino in london.

That was not bad coldo 😂



10 Aug 2017 04:24:00
Was at the game tonight and to be fair it was ONLY Dunfermline but I can't say a bad word about how much every player tried! What I do have to say is watch the Rossiter interview on Rangers TV and see how much this lad is up for it! He admits he's been injured but just look how hyped up he is and explains how good team moral is! Surely this shall put to bed the nae sayers surrounding our dressing room! Every player tonight showed a bit of hunger and I said it was only Dunfermline but we can only play what's in front of us!


1.) 10 Aug 2017 08:50:16
Rossiter played well barely misplaced a pass if even one sat in recieved ball spread play. Class only 21 him and jack similar and both can do a great job this season.



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

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



21 Jan 2017 23:01:26
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!

If McInnes gets it I'll support him the same as I did with our last manager! He's not my number one choice but he's the one that is no doubt going to be unveiled as our great clubs next permanent boss! The last one was a mistake by the board and I also got to the stage where I hoped he'd leave or get the bullet! Whoever comes in I'll give my 100% support to him as I have done for the past 46 years of my life ( 32 of them as a season book holder ) and it rules me when I hear people or so called supporters of our club knocking someone before they even take up the mantle! If he brings something different I hope it takes our team forward like he did Aberdeen over the past few years and no one can deny he has done on a far limited budget than what was given to the last two Rangers managers! Let's all support our club and whoever takes up the reigns!

Weiss ( the only man to kiss the badge more than Halliday ) . Why do you think he is the correct choice? He ain't set the football world alight since he left the first time! I'm sure we must have one or two in the youth ranks or at least would benefit and grow by getting in the first team squad rather than Vladimir! We can't go on with " he was great first time around " or " he has Rangers at heart " as if this was the case 99.9% of us on here should get at least a chance!

rangeken I agree! Most have been vocal about Tav but don't comment much about the left side because Waldo is there ( been through the dark times . ) I for one have been a Tav abuser ( vocally ) in the past but the lad has been one of our best players this term! I've missed one game this season home or away and for me he's been more defensive minded . We have a right wing back that has a bit of skill and forward thinking but our team management hasn't played the lad where he should be played ( Warbs or Pedro ) . On another note how refreshing is Murty's interviews pre and post match as he seems to know what the actual f**k is needed by this great club . The man talks sense in a civil manner which the only ever time in the past two years where I've heard this is when he was interim the last time lol

Trev No7, you and I and 99.9% of Bears that supported our club way back then had no clue about David Murray or what was to come of it but we still enjoyed those times! With Kenny this is his third spell at the club and I admire that he has been with us through some dark times but at the end of the day he's still left twice! The last old firm game I turned to a few mates when I seen Miller at the end having a few words coming off! No one is ever bigger than our mighty club and that includes DK, PC and any player! I work along side a ex Rangers coach on a daily basis ( no why tied into football but still has his ear in there ) and believe me when I say both parties aren't 100% truthful on the matter hence silence by both .
