Just my opinion I think the SPFL and English championship are pretty comparable. I believe we will lose Morelos this summer perhaps Tav this year too. I digress, I would seriously like us to consider McBurnie as, if it happens, a replacement for Morelos.

They are both 22 Morelos is physically more mature and a better overall player, Mcburnie is still growing into his frame and will improve more. Morelos is always going to leave, McBurnie would need a much greater incentive to leave. Right now Morelos Is 6 or 7 goals a year better I think that difference will close.

I've never been one to advocate players just because they bleed red, white and more importantly, blue but in this case I believe it would be a great move by us. Now come on guys mash the disagree.


1.) 05 Jan 2019 17:46:26
Mcburnie just signed a new deal in the summer so I can't see it happening.

2.) 05 Jan 2019 18:21:22
McBurnie on a par with Cummings, not good enough.

3.) 05 Jan 2019 18:38:05
McBurnie doesn’t score enough goals for me, likeable grafting Rangers supporting Scotsman but nowhere near Morelos this season but still young and will improve but at the moment not for me mate.

4.) 05 Jan 2019 18:52:28
English Championship is a better standard by a distance. You have absolutely NO clue who will win that from year to year.

5.) 05 Jan 2019 19:18:03
Mcburnie is slower than a week in the jail

How many goals in the Championship? Hardly prolific and if Ryan Hardue is not a better bet, questions need asked about the youth set up.

6.) 05 Jan 2019 19:31:10
A better standard and more competitive are 2 different things. Take the old firm out of the league, and we have 1 super competitive league. Just like every top league though, only a few can win the league, but go down 1 and it's much more open.

7.) 06 Jan 2019 00:28:25
LDM17, a more 'competitive' league doesn't make it a better league. Many leagues at all levels have a different winner most seasons, but the vast majority of them are duff leagues. Means nothing.



27 Sep 2018 20:16:34
I have been thinking, dangerous I know, that SG wants to sell Morelos in January. Use those funds to hopefully sign a replacement or 2 and maybe even convert 1 of our loanees to our player.


1.) 27 Sep 2018 22:18:32
Always said it. I will would get rid of him. he's a liability!

2.) 27 Sep 2018 22:59:11
Care to recommend a replacement that's within our budget?

3.) 27 Sep 2018 23:06:05
Bluepete hope your right.

4.) 27 Sep 2018 23:40:19
You's both are aff your rockers lol mental.

5.) 28 Sep 2018 01:03:39
SG is not going to sell Morelos and has said on several occasions that he wants to build the team around him! Boy has been OUTSTANDING this season so far, people need to get off his back and get behind him.

6.) 28 Sep 2018 01:51:33
Everytime he gets the ball, hd over runs it or fluffs his shot. Lafferty has got on the end of things far better and gets in far better positions. Did i mention that Morelos is constantly offside?! @.

7.) 28 Sep 2018 08:02:44
As1974 Are you Chris Sutton in disguise? A disgrace would be throwing a huff and refusing to play to get a move away from the club AKA dembelend and Boyspatta. As I'm sure he could get a move if he really wanted it.

Boy has a petulant side but it shouldn't take away from the fact he gives his all for the club. Rather that than someone not giving a rubbish.

8.) 28 Sep 2018 08:29:25
SG phone u to say he wants to sell Morelos. Absolute crap written on here re the lad.
Not his fault we never signed a fourth striker. We knew Lafferty cup tied. Probably had sussed Sadiq can’t cut it.
Support the lad as that’s his game playing on edge.
How many of u actually saw the tacke, it was a disgrace.

9.) 28 Sep 2018 08:30:55
Liability not disgrace sorry.

10.) 28 Sep 2018 08:43:54
Get a grip. The boy has been superb this season. try supporting the team instead of getting on their backs. You would have bitten the hand off of anyone to at the start of the season to be in the position we are in now. Still to much negativity.

11.) 28 Sep 2018 09:42:41
Morelos only cost us £1M! He has been superb value for money and if a decent offer comes in for him and it’s a step up for him then I’m sure Stevie G will let him go. Hopefully we have targets in mind for when that day comes but until then he should be looking to improve on his shortcomings which I’m sure he will, he’s only 22 remember!

12.) 28 Sep 2018 10:01:47
Wants to build a team round about Morelos, if he wanted to sell him would have done it at start of the season. And he’s far from a disgrace of a player the lad gives everything but definitely a liability most times.

13.) 28 Sep 2018 10:16:25
Er where did I diss Morelos? I rate the lad highly and think he's been great so far this season. His petulant attitude needs to change and he still needs to improve but he works his socks off and has flashes of brilliance. SG phones me all the time and I'm happy to give him advice but lads only 9 disagrees? I'm hurt.

14.) 28 Sep 2018 10:37:57
Haha I’ll click disagree for you mate!

15.) 28 Sep 2018 11:07:17
So why would we get rid of Morelos unless we are getting 15m and upwards He's just signed a new contract on improved wages!

Morelos has been superb this year albeit he has an issue where he is a little petulant

Don't you remember the last player who had similarities and what he had become?

Rino Gattuso become world class and played with at the time one of the top 3 sides in the world AC Milan

Now we will not let this gem. of a player go unless the money is right

So all you Morelos haters Please pick your head out your arse!

16.) 28 Sep 2018 13:34:30
Kasmania82 see your talking usual crap morelos hasn't been superb just ok at best sell now before value drops even further was 11 million at one point last year lucky if we get 5 for him now.

17.) 28 Sep 2018 14:50:41
If Morelos gets the broken biscuits out his head he will go on to become a class international striker! It would be daft to let him go when all he needs is guidance.

18.) 28 Sep 2018 15:36:51
He cost us 2 points in the first game of the season. Yes it got recinded but still 2 points dropped. He almost lost us a Europa group stage after getting sent off again (4-7m) in prize monet. He then gets a needless booking the other night so is out of the next cup game. Get off his back? Get him sold. He's not as good as folk on here make out. Aye he does a lot of good running but he's a goalscorer. Sell him.

19.) 28 Sep 2018 16:35:10
Disgraceful comments, get behind the lad, he's our top scorer and we can't afford to replace him.

20.) 28 Sep 2018 18:05:43
Morelos is scoring for fun and is great value for money at 1mil. I do agree that his petulance has cost us and will cost us again. He needs to curb it pronto. I would also play lafferty before morelos, I think lafferty offers much more and scores goals that morelos wouldn't. Where are all the lafferty doubters anyway🤔 you's have been quiet👍. @kaz, what is it with you and 15mil😂👍.

21.) 28 Sep 2018 18:57:53
Hands up I'm a Lafferty doubter still.

22.) 28 Sep 2018 19:48:44
Going by your original post bluepete am no surprised🙃👍.

23.) 28 Sep 2018 19:58:00
@6counties, still no enjoying life mate? Well this might cheer you up, the dhims are raging that we play first in the semi's, they reckon that hearts will have an advantage because the park will be cut up. They are also hearing whispers that hearts are showing up early with miracle grow hoping to grow the grass a bit after our game. Apparently its all a fix. 🙃👍.

24.) 28 Sep 2018 20:27:32
Feel like this is a 100% troll thread.

25.) 28 Sep 2018 21:14:54
I see the usual morelos bashers persons are out in force tonight the boy has probbaly been 1 of our best players this season and even in a poor rangers side last year was way above any other players in last seasons team.

26.) 28 Sep 2018 22:30:14
Morelos is a good player but his huffs piss me right off.

27.) 28 Sep 2018 22:06:40
Well said kaz.

28.) 28 Sep 2018 22:40:19
Morelos is terrible. He’s a shocking finisher, you never fancy him to score a 1 one 1, a free header or when a ball gets flashed across the box you never fancy him to get on the end of it and the rare times he does he’s offside because his movement is still poor at 22. He lacks pace and plays the wrong pass a large percentage of times because of his failure to know who’s around him. A complete lack of discipline and will cost us more points than gain us this season. Should’ve been replaced in the summer time or like I said even back in January replaced then, brutal.

29.) 28 Sep 2018 22:41:59
Why get rid of him? he’s been outstanding so far this season. we know he has a hot head, but he’s a young guy. who can we buy that would be as good as him? we would need to pay mega money for a replacement.

30.) 28 Sep 2018 22:43:31
Been a while since my last post. Feels like an age. Missed the banter. Just to say that anyone who has watched Rangers this season knows that El Buffalo is our best player by a mile when on song and he’s becoming more consistent. If he’s playing in the championship or EPL he’d be automatically worth over £20m. Timposters are the only ones implying we should sell him imo.

31.) 28 Sep 2018 22:48:09
Maybe a bit over the top - Suarez was a liability (with the biting etc.) until he was about 30 and still managed a move to Barca! Morelos will hopefully wisen up sooner and to be fair he hasn't been on Suarez level so maybe we just need to give the young man more time with Stevie G who possibly sees a bit of the Suarez personality in him.

32.) 28 Sep 2018 22:55:19
6counties strikes again.

33.) 29 Sep 2018 05:38:11
Thankyou all 22 wow.

34.) 29 Sep 2018 08:01:22
We are all Morelos.

35.) 29 Sep 2018 09:14:55
I have to laugh at the Morelos haters The problem. is Celtic have left themselves short upfront ever since Dembele wanted away and I bet you my bottom dollar this is where this is coming from

Ohh did you hear the latest? Morelos now has a few caps for Colombia out and he's just 22yo

The boy will be class and if Gerrard can get the best out of him He will get 20+ in the league alone!

36.) 29 Sep 2018 11:48:18
Correct Kazmania82 🇬🇧.

37.) 29 Sep 2018 20:24:48
Jesus christ, look how well things are going right now and the direction the club as a whole is moving and we have people arguing about Morelos, THE BOY HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE WORLD CLASS, JUST GOT HIS FIRST CALL UP FOR COLOMBIA, ALTHOUGH HE'S GOT A TEMPER HE IS STILL RIGHT NOW A CRACKING WEE PLAYER WHO GIVES DEFENDERS HELL AND CHIP'S IN WITH GOALS, all above are facts we won't get a replacement within our budget for Morelos his whole demeanor has changed since Stevie took charge and with him just signing a new contact a good 2/ 3 years proper nuturing and the wee man could be worth big big bucks the way the game is going, Aye Dembele was a good player but look at his career kicking around at Fulham as a kid and then plying his trade in the same league that Alfredo is now. Forget focusing on the bad points in his game because there a a hell of a lot more pro's than con's and he could be a huge asset for us down the line.



26 Aug 2018 09:20:43
Read in a couple of rags we are after Nathan Dyer. My cousin just finished an 18 month contract in Swansea (he told me Swansea fans were up in arms when we looked like getting Mcburnie) and I know he watched them quite a lot last season. He could not remember anything good or bad about Dyer still was playing at EPL level at 30 may be worth a punt.


1.) 26 Aug 2018 09:50:12
Could only see it if we need cover in the meantime for Jamie Murphy.

2.) 26 Aug 2018 10:00:29
I think he would be good option. Someone of that ilk who has pace to threaten but experience that he can bring to a relatively young team and offer support whilst Murphy returns from injury. We could do worse than Dyer in my opinion.

3.) 26 Aug 2018 20:34:54
we should've got mcburnie.

4.) 26 Aug 2018 22:10:59
We need a player that can play left wing and centre mid.

5.) 26 Aug 2018 23:10:55
Need a real big strong controller of the box. A player who other teams hate playing against who do you think. I think McCauley would be good cover for Murphy v.



06 Jun 2018 14:43:34
With my one and only bit of Info, Goldson, now looking likely. Some other rumour/ news/ gossip my dad and a couple of his friends just back from London. They were talking about Terry maybe coming to us and a guy from Elite something overheard and told them he was from Terry's agents and they had so far had no contact.
On a more important note with so many of you disagreeing I am crap at football I spoke to my old Sunday team coach. He went white twitched a little and said"You have more chance of playing for Rangers". So I'm sending my C. V. to S. G. and I'm younger than McAuley.




23 May 2018 12:55:35
Connor Goldson you heard it here first or maybe not and its been in the papers we offered £1.5m and was rejected. Friend on the phone saying we are back in with £2.5m offer he won't give his source but swears its not the media. We are meeting up on Saturday so I'll get him drunk and find out more.


1.) 23 May 2018 13:08:32
Connor goldson looks a good player if we could partner him with bartley or burke then that would be good business terrific business would be getting skrtel to partner him

2.) 23 May 2018 13:47:45
I really don't think we should be taking a risk on Connor Goldson, barely played in 2 season and had heart problems. if on a free then maybe but i wouldn't like to see us wasting millions on someone unproven in recent years and major injury concerns

3.) 23 May 2018 13:54:50
Played Two games for an average Brighton team last year and has a heart problem. Could be a huge risk and he is not even first pick CH at Brighton

4.) 23 May 2018 15:31:25
Can't get a game a Brighton then Burke can't get a game at West Ham and is allowed to just leave yet these are meant to be great signings?

5.) 23 May 2018 16:28:05
No one said great signings. Reece has good potential we need to sign four CH so to experienced two prospects
Iron my opinion Skrtel goldstone Reece Isherwood
All better that what we have

6.) 23 May 2018 16:42:25
Never seen Goldson play did not say he'd be a good signing I had no clue he had a heart problem. Its a rumour page and I passed on a rumour lol think I'l stick to the banter page you lot are mean :)

7.) 23 May 2018 18:05:02
All names mentioned above are better then cardroso

8.) 23 May 2018 18:06:56
Bluepete, heart problem not an issue or he would not be playing in premier ship

9.) 24 May 2018 07:33:04
i think the fact he had a heart problem is a big issue. and he hasn't played enough to be considered IMO.

I'll start by saying I'm a great SG fan. His record of bringing on youth players however is abysmal. It's far to easy to say they are not good enough, I've said it myself, there are very good players in some of these young lads. I've had Rangers TV for coming up for 2 years and really enjoyed there achievements.
Before you say I'm at it again think back over the last 2 years at some of the substitutions. How many times have you thought OMG not him, some of our young loanees spring to mind but other older players too. We have to play some of these kids or they will never have the confidence, making cheap ego statements about them certainly wont.


1.) 21 Jul 2020 17:20:40
I had heard (maybe on here to be fair 🤣) that they don't really rare the u21 crop but are really excited at the group behind. Who may still be a bit away from being ready physically etc.

2.) 21 Jul 2020 17:42:45
Perhaps SG knows a bit more about their attitude and ability than you do?

3.) 21 Jul 2020 17:55:28
To be fair I can understand the reluctance to play too many of the young squad when everything Stevie does is analysed to death by all and sundry up here. The fans demand success, especially this season when second place will not do. Any right minded manager would edge on caution. Damned if he does etc.

4.) 21 Jul 2020 19:32:13
Exactly Seeker can you imagine the grief SG would get if we dropped points due to a mistake from a young player. If they young guys keep progressing they will get there chance in the future.

5.) 21 Jul 2020 21:01:48
Jaws 👍🇬🇧.

6.) 22 Jul 2020 11:41:18
The money in football today has a big part in why young players have the "ego's" they have, just a few examples :

Jude Bellingham 17 - 40 appearances, sold to Dortmund for 25m
Kylian Mbappé 18 - 41 appearances, sold to PSG for 180m
Joao Felix 19 - 26 appearances, sold to A. Madrid for 113m million

That's a combined total of 218m for 107 appearances.

Now obviously we are talking about players nowhere near the level of those 3 above but that's not the point i'm making. My point is if you have young players (regardless of ability) moving for crazy amount of money before they have even shown how good they can actually be then all young players who have even the smallest amount of hype around them with rumours of big European clubs interested then they are going to ask for ridiculous wages to stay.

SG is spot on, too many young players in football these days feel like they deserve stupid money because a couple of big clubs are interested in them and they have impressed for a youth team. Young players have to be protected from making bad decisions for more money. If Kai Kennedy moves on for example to bayern or man city, how many 1st team games do you think he will get? quick answer is none, will be loaned out to numerous teams before leaving on a free in 4 or 5 years, by that time his career would be finished before it has even got started.

7.) 22 Jul 2020 12:31:38
Good post bino.



21 Feb 2019 09:57:23
I thought no way that's a sending off BUT watch it in slow-mo the goalie never looks at Kamara but he raises both arms, stretching, then drops his left arm straight into Kamara's coupon the right arm remains up. Kamara makes the most or worst of it but there is contact and having now watched like 10 times in slow motion it is definitely deliberate.


1.) 21 Feb 2019 11:24:00
Agree with you bluepete, at the time I didn’t think it was a red but now having seen it from a different angle that has been posted online this morning I think the keeper knew exactly what he was doing, red card all day long for me.

2.) 21 Feb 2019 13:40:13
I guess Steve Clarke has stopped watching English football as the abuse down is both verbal and physical is that what he wants for his children.

3.) 23 Feb 2019 00:14:02
The video showing it from the other angle, it is 100% red card. Prior to that i was a bit dubious but not now.

4.) 22 Feb 2019 22:29:00
Exactly macbow.



10 Feb 2019 17:57:48
Guys a pure question, how do you feel about players being tried by media/ other managers mouths? We all know to a minor extent it's always happened, but it appears to me never to this extent.




11 Jan 2019 15:40:36
Was reading, some, of our fans didn't want Bryson cause he's a Celtic fan now forget Bryson.
As a kid. 25-30 years ago I'd sit on the bus singing sectarian songs now as a man I think they have no place at our club. My only religion is my wife and 3 kids. I love our club and the history and traditions are very important.

Ed, could you put up a poll please?
Do you think we should sign players purely on football abilities, yes or no.
thanks in advance.

Bluepete i'm exact same my dad and uncles used to sing the sectarian songs and i was brought up in that culture i now font care about that stuff but i still love glasgow rangers me and my son love days out at ibrox.

2.) 11 Jan 2019 20:20:14
Ok then, so at the end of the tims game and the whole stadium is singing the billy's, you lads are not singing it?

3.) 11 Jan 2019 21:47:56
Blue Pete, I grew up in sectarian era in 80s when we couldn't beat carpets. New Rangers is wonderful to watch and a truly protestant institution. TBH don't care if we play 11 Eskimos. 1-0 win against timmies wonderful standard to Base rest of season on. but no posts on protestant advantage / Catholic implosion. And that's way it should be. It is obvious there are Catholic players at club but again that's way it should be. I don't hide from fact I'm big SG fan and as regards playing side will back him 100%.

4.) 11 Jan 2019 22:25:38
I thought every club would sign players based on ability and affordability. If they happen to support that team then it's a bonus.

5.) 11 Jan 2019 22:29:41
Yip paul your right i wasnt singing the billy boys at the end of the game and ill tell u why i was brought up in a properly staunch area in lanarkshire and all my family are rangers fans but my mum married again to a catholic and a big celtic fan they had a son my half brother who is a celtic fan also. now if i was to be seen singing the billy boys in front of him what kind of disrespect is that to show your brother and i also don't want my young children hearing any of that.

6.) 12 Jan 2019 00:02:12
For me, purely football ability is not enough. Mentality, character etc are just as important. Celtic fans should never shame our shirt. Rangers for Rangers men!

We are the people!

7.) 12 Jan 2019 01:23:14
God's not real. Anyway don't care what bullsh! t religion any player follows. As long as he's not a celtic fan he can sign for us. Ps glad to see that wee snake ohallaron failed in kangaroo footballw too.

8.) 12 Jan 2019 06:45:26
There have been plenty of Celtic fans play for Rangers and the same goes the other way. Players should be picked purely on ability. I don't care what team they support or what religion they are as long as they give 100% for us.

9.) 12 Jan 2019 11:53:18
There's more to playing for Rangers than ability, are people saying that no matter what, if you're a good player then you can wear the famous colours? I for one would NEVER accept that hingoot griffiths in a Rangers shirt no matter how many goals he scored for us but look at the tims they hold him up as some kind of hero. Well, my standards are a lot higher.

10.) 12 Jan 2019 14:36:29
Well said sharpy_85, as long as the
Player has the correct attributes and gives 100% then that's all that matters. 👏👍.

SG is a young manager he will make mistakes, so does everybody who does anything, I believe 2 of his biggest mistakes have been trying to please the fans. i. e. Lafferty ( which I predicted and, breaks my heart to say it) Davis my fav. Rangers player, he's not even a shadow of his former self. I think his treatment of Katic has been poor too.
He brought in a lot of players and we have had some stellar performances but far too many lacklustre or downright abysmal like yesterday. Hopefully we can sign Kent (permanent) I think he has more chance of being struck twice in the same place than getting into the current Liverpool team. Perhaps the Scouse ED. could kindly give us his views. and 3 more ( of similar or better) and really press next year. The problem will be getting rid of the dead wood, thankfully 4 are loanees.

Still heads up and I'll be back for more next week.


{Ed001's Note - Kent is very unlikely to get a place in the first team next season, so I would think there is a chance of him leaving. Depends a lot on the lad himself, and if he is happy to continue to be farmed out or wants to go and prove himself away from Liverpool on a permanent basis. Will he want to walk away from the comfort and security of the money and support and take a chance?}

It seems to me most SPL managers are bitter this year, not only against us, even SG started that way a lil with his, justified imo, pop at the standard of refs up here. Since then he has been nothing but respectful about our opposition.

If Morelos was sent off for dangling his foot over McKenna then its no sending off, there was no stamp, if however he was sent off for simulation, then I 100% agree. McGregor definite penalty. Tav. same and utter stupidity.

I have no idea what religion my dad is, he's never mentioned it. My mother is catholic and occasionally goes to chapel. My religion is my wife and 3 kids my daughter is a big Rangers fan, and from this year a season ticket holder, she is Catholic and goes every week.
I see nothing wrong with wearing the Jack or the Tricolour, it's just the same as wearing a Rangers or Celtic top.
