Shouts for Cummings to start in the OF I can understand I love the guy and he got badly needed start and goals yesterday, but Morelos for me is a far better all round player and should get the nod for OF.

I've been wishing we'd go with the two of them up top together but yesterday showed why Murty's not done it - the number of times they could have played each other in for a tap in but went for goal themselves! Both really good finishers and because of that have a greedy streak (not a bad thing in a striker) . But if they realised they'd both get more goals if they helped each other, they'd be some strike partnership!

I just hope we keep both players after summer because they're both class strikers!

And also the fact a 4 man midfield just doesn’t work most of the time in the modern game hence the reason most teams don’t go with a 4.

2.) 05 Mar 2018 23:46:26
What a ray of sunshine ☝️☝️😂😂

3.) 06 Mar 2018 09:41:43
Morelos better than Cummings have a day off, did you not see those misses at the weekend to add to the collection of absolute sitters he’s missed this season.

4.) 06 Mar 2018 10:09:55
i like the 4231 formation with the two wingers bombing on and windass in the free roll morelos drags defenders all over the place goss and docherty give the back 4 plenty of protection as do candeias and murphy on the wings when needed we play as a solid unit now defending from the front and attacking while playing the game the right way just wish we had this starting 11 in august with murty as boss we would be pissing this league right now.

5.) 07 Mar 2018 16:00:34
As modern football evolves, the only way now to play two up top is to go 3-5-2. The '5' in various guises is now the most important part of the team and is where the creativity, energy and drive comes from. Four in the middle and you go from a 2 litre engine to a 1.5 one, a noticeable drop in performance levels.



16 Nov 2016 16:22:47
On Sky Sports Regional Paper Talk section the and the Reading Post is linking us with Reading midfielder Liam Kelly. Anyone heard anything about this?


{Ed039's Note - Yes he is a player Warburton likes, he is out of contract at the end of the season and could move under the same circumstances that Rossiter and Dodoo moved)

1.) 16 Nov 2016 20:41:42
Taking into account that frank lampard is now almost at the very end of his career, with his next move obviously not going to be money motivated, do you think there's any chance at all that we could sign frank lampard?

2.) 16 Nov 2016 21:57:32
Nope. And for the reason you put at the beginning of your post. And cash too. Would anyone be willing to take 5% of previous earnings? That being said, you would think that MW will still be looking for the experience in midfield that he was looking for when he signed JB and NK.

Personally, I don't want Rangers to be the vehicle for players to finish illustrious careers. I'd rather it was the club where they started them.

3.) 17 Nov 2016 11:24:02
why do we need a midfielder?
only areas I think we are weak is defence and attack we need a centre back with pace and a poacher to bang the goals in.
if warbs goes for more middle of the park player to sit on the bench because he only plays three in there then sum1 needs to give him a slap.

4.) 17 Nov 2016 11:37:00
Would obviously love Lampard in the team but there's no chance he'll come up here. He'll become a Sky Sports pundit and join up with Carra, Neville, Henry no doubt.

5.) 19 Nov 2016 15:01:47
I see the comments about Red Bull Teams being universally hated, well from what I can see, in today's Scotland, we are universally hated anyway so if we get a sponsor that brings us back to the glory days why not. Personally I don't give a proverbial about the supporters of other Scottish Teams especially those that play in Green!

As good as he has been since coming in, Goss was an absolute passenger yesterday and in hindsight Holt would have done a far better job in his position. Choking for McCrorie to come back in either CB or CDM, and Dorrans will bring some much needed creativity to the midfield as well. Hope they're both fit for the Semi.


1.) 12 Mar 2018 18:17:37
Unfortunately although Goss is good player he can be too weak in the tackle and he cost us in this game, but Murty should have combatted the strongest part of their Team a lot better. I know McCorie, Jack, Dorans were injured but young Docherty needs more support in midfield cause Rodgers sees us as a soft touch in this area. So hopefully Murty can stiffen up the midfield for the semi and I reckon we could beat them next time.



06 Oct 2017 17:23:31
We have good attacking full backs who can't defend, and 4 strong enough CBs in Alves, Cardoso, McCrorie and Wilson. Is it just me that is dying to see us move to a back 3/5 with wing backs?

I know Wilson hasn't impressed lately, but he's more suited to the LCB role in a back three, and I believe we have a future star in McCrorie so he must be given game time!

Would allow us to play three CMs (where we have the most talent in our ranks) and two strikers, or a diamond 4 in the middle and one up top.

Would look something like this:

Cardoso Alves Wilson/ McCrorie
Tav/ Candeias Wallace/ John
Jack Rossiter Dorrans
Herrera/ Miller Morelos

Or in the diamond, swap Herrera/ Miller for Pena Kranjcar or Candeias.



1.) 06 Oct 2017 19:26:37
Is it just me that thinks Tavs actually a better defender than he gets credit for?

2.) 06 Oct 2017 19:29:27
Will Hardie be given some decent game time soon? Not saying he's the answer but now Miller seems to have fell down pecking order I hope Hardie gets a chance.

3.) 06 Oct 2017 20:02:51
3 at the back is worth a shout, celtic played that way under oneil and dominated. I'd go for fod, mcrorie alves wilson, tav wallace, jack barjonas dorrans, hardie morelos. Maybe candieas could play behind morelos instead of hardie. But I would definitely start playing barjonas hardie mcrorie as the aren't any worse than pena herrera cardoso.

4.) 06 Oct 2017 22:05:16
Couldn't agree more. The personnel at our disposal suggests that a 3-5-2 would see all our best players on the park and in their strongest position. Would feel sorry for candeias though. Arguably been our best player thos season but would struggle for game time in that system. unless we could convert him to a wing back.

5.) 07 Oct 2017 09:02:01
Wish people would stop going on about how poor cardoso and two Mexicans are. They are clearly not bad players or PC would not have made such an outlay on them. The style and pace of football here is much different and quicker than there previous leagues and once they adapt I am sure they will improve. Anyone that changes jobs to such drastic fashion would take time to adapt. Question is how quick can they adapt not if there good players or not

6.) 07 Oct 2017 12:33:40
As Much as I like to bring through our own players and I do think mccrorie could be a good one we need to be careful as I'm no sure he is ready. Seems very naïve at times and has been shakey but got away with criticism others wouldn't as He's a young up and coming home breed

7.) 07 Oct 2017 12:17:27
Wouldn't have Cardoso in the team, just looks like a Portugese Rob Kiernan to me, my team would be

McCrorie Alves Wilson
Tavernier Jack Dorrans John
Morelos Miller

8.) 07 Oct 2017 13:32:54
They are clearly bad players blue nose, pedro got it very wrong paying that amount of money for them. You actually make my point about needing players/ manager who know our game.



03 Jul 2017 13:28:33
Doesn't seem to be a popular opinion but I can't understand folk wanting to sell McKay for £700k and buy Dorrans at 30 years old for £1.5M.
Think recruitment's gone really well this summer, my only complaints would be we missed out on a cracking RB in Paterson and I'd 100% want to keep McKay.

McKay is a product of the youth academy, still young at 22, I agree he's got to improve some aspects of his game and become more consistent but he's still a great talent with a lot of potential.

The foreign signings have improved us definitely, but we need to keep some of our home-grown players in the mix to keep an identity and to satisfy squad regulations.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 13:36:13
Dorrans deal isn't for £1.5mil, Mckay WANTS TO LEAVE.

2.) 03 Jul 2017 14:09:52
Dorrans deal is closer to 750k than 1 Mill and McKay wants to leave hence the chasing of Jamie Walker and its no secret heart need cash

3.) 03 Jul 2017 14:24:12
The rangers observer is reporting a deal for good has been reached and its only 750k not the 1-1.5m reported in the sun and the rhebel anyone heard any different

4.) 03 Jul 2017 14:57:41
McKay wants to leave and his warburton security blanket will def be his choice. he also isn't a product of our youth system, he was at killie and was released after an injury when we picked him up

5.) 03 Jul 2017 15:14:55
bluels the colour, you cannot understand why the desire to get cash for Mckay, well others can, won't go on about dodging tackles etc, suffice to say he has been cr. p.



16 Jun 2017 11:15:06
West Ham just released left back Stephen Hendrie. From Glasgow, 22, supposed to be a promising prospect, would be a cracking signing on a free transfer imo. Thoughts?


1.) 16 Jun 2017 11:35:33
West ham, released, free transfer.
You sure it's a good prospect?

2.) 16 Jun 2017 11:44:29
Done ok at hamilton got his big move to west ham but not what rangers need

3.) 16 Jun 2017 14:46:35
Fair play. I think he's better than Hodson, and would be a very good backup to Wallace.

4.) 16 Jun 2017 16:03:48
You think he's better than the International player in Hodson, based on what evidence?

5.) 16 Jun 2017 16:47:11
I've seen both. Hodson's better. That's why west Ham released the boy. It's probably up the road to Partick for him.

6.) 16 Jun 2017 17:19:20
BluelsTheColour, would stick with Beerman all day long as a back up to Wallace.



18 May 2017 08:52:18
Only one positive - Barjonas looks a player. Comfortable on the ball, picks a pass, good positioning. We've been playing without a midfield recently, need to have him starting I think.


1.) 18 May 2017 10:02:28
Build a team around him. Could b our next Barry ferguson

2.) 18 May 2017 10:31:47
I thought Beerman had a great game last night under difficult conditions. Him and Barjonas were two positives to take from the game.

3.) 18 May 2017 10:34:43
Will be interesting to see what happens with him next season as he did look better and more confident last night. If he isn't going to play regular with us next season then I hope he is put out on loan to another premiership team rather than be sent to a struggling championship side

4.) 18 May 2017 11:08:53
I guess it depends on how many players we will see come in over the summer. I hope he gets his chance during pre-season as I wouldn't mind seeing him and Rossiter playing together in that 4-2-3-1 formation. I think young Aiden Wilson looked very good considering he was up against Rooney, who is a big old unit with a lot of pace. I think it was in the first 5mins when he chased down a ball in the corner and I was surprised at how quick he was.

5.) 18 May 2017 13:08:03
Don't think he's quite at "build the team around him" nellylad. But the 3 kids in the back 4 and Barjonas in front of them, they all gave a good account of themselves.

6.) 18 May 2017 13:47:21
nellylad, no pressure on the kid, then? Give yourself a shake.

Martin fit or not I'd pick Alves ahead of him. Martin is a good centre half but Alves a level above. Then Master Bates one level above that haha!

Both great strikers but they don't pass to each other. I like a greedy streak in a good finisher but the number of goals they could have racked up yesterday if they played each other in would have been a lot higher.

Hope if injured it's only minor for John. Both are good options at LB, and would suit different games. Wallace more defensively sound, bigger and more experienced, and John better going forward with the ball, but having both fit will only be good for us.

How stubborn some folk must be to still be saying that Alves feigned injury at Celtic Park!? Do you actually believe it or do you just say it to justify not wanting him in the first XI? Although he's not fully impressed me, he's still the best CB we have on the books and I for one hope he turns it round and has a great last year and a half with us.

DeBoer's got a good name, but his record is awful as a manager. I was keen for him before we got Pedro, but right now I'd 100% rather we keep going with Murty. What he's done in a very short period of time is tremendous and should merit our full support. If everyone gets behind this guy and gives him every bit of our fantastic fans support, he'll do the rest!

I, like many others, was getting excited at the prospect of Murphy taking on Lustig. But who's Lustig keeping out of their first XI? Whoever it is he must be even worse!

It's a tricky one, I like a back 3/ 5 with wing backs, but we have to press them high up the field, they struggle against teams who press them. Also we must keep the Tav Candeias RB/ RW partnership for the OF. Worked a treat last time and to move Tav when he's in the form he's in right now doesn't make sense. If both are out and we have Wallace and Dorrans fit I'd go with them. LW is an issue if Murphy misses the game, but they'll have Lustig out as well!

Candyman will be busy bossing Tierney again, Blueblood. If we're missing Murphy and they're missing Lustig, I don't know who will be up against who down that flank (our left, their right) .

Just a thought. Cardoso could probably play in that CDM role that Ross McCrorie nailed. If Alves is back I'd have him and Bates at the back with Cardoso just in front of them. He's good with the ball at his feet and it frees John and Tav a bit more as well which is good.
