Daily Express reporting that Dinamo Kiev will make a deadline day bid of at least £7 million for El Buffalo today. If they up the bid to over £10 million I think Gers should accept! However, SG has said that Morelos will start on Sunday against the unwashed. If he goes, perhaps we can get a striker in at the last minute?

DOIGER

1.) 31 Aug 2018 09:57:39
Solanke?


2.) 31 Aug 2018 10:03:35
DOUGER; I agree mate, I like Morelos but the fact is he is a reliability. 10 million would be a great bit of business but who can we get for a replacement?


3.) 31 Aug 2018 10:21:07
I think that if we, had gone out last night, he would have been sold today, especially under the circumstances. but it would take an outlandish bid for him to go now, and a replacement in place as well, but we need a large squad now. Also the potential is there. if he learns to button the lip and finish more of his chances. in a year we could see a bid for 20 million from a premier club come in.


4.) 31 Aug 2018 10:26:16
Stevie G and mark allen will have a plan if morelos is sold 100%.


5.) 31 Aug 2018 10:32:06
Hes not going anywhere, will be very surprised if he doesn't sign a new contract before he reports for international duty. give him a good season under stevie g, help us win the league and sell him for 20million in the summer. Happy days.


6.) 31 Aug 2018 10:42:12
Keep him till jan let him score few more goals in europe etc add few extra £££.


7.) 31 Aug 2018 10:52:14
Why would they sell him when they are trying so hard to tie him down to a new deal? Honestly guys get out your boxes. The laddie is a talent and he must stay! No many matches you’ll ever see a ref send a player off for no approaching him just a power hungry German. Refs job is to keep 11 v 11 no bin folk any chance they get.


8.) 31 Aug 2018 10:55:13
Solanke coming in would be great and we haven't really seen Sadiq yet. Also, can I mention my old mate Hardie lol? At least if we'd kept him he might have been back up striker. I promise not to mention Hardie again this season, honest.


9.) 31 Aug 2018 11:04:37
Will folk shut up about Solanke? He's not coming, never was and he's not that great in the first place.


10.) 31 Aug 2018 11:36:37
Solanke is crap. Morelos' bad behaviour cannot be passed off as 'poor refereeing' either. He speaks to refs like that every game and gete booked every week. He is - however - better than Solanke and anyone else we could get in at this point.


11.) 31 Aug 2018 11:43:15
Solanke no thanks. He needs to screw the nut. We would be crazy to sell when in Europe. Guy needs a word in his ear. He's a proper striker and is valuable asset that's only going to increase in value.


12.) 31 Aug 2018 11:46:00
Take a deep breathe lads he’s going nowhere ok a bit of hothead but that’s what makes Fredo the player he is.


13.) 31 Aug 2018 11:52:44
So72, Solanke is crap? What a statement!
You must doubt Klopp and Stevie Gerrard and what they know about football! 🇬🇧.


14.) 31 Aug 2018 12:14:27
Solanke is a top talent, anyone who can't see that is deluded👍.


15.) 31 Aug 2018 12:46:52
Morelos is to much of a liability, boy has bags of potential but will cost us points.


16.) 31 Aug 2018 12:49:55
If solanke played for anyone other than our new pals liverpool he wouldn't have been mentioned once.


17.) 31 Aug 2018 12:50:01
Happy with that only one long journey Moscow.


18.) 31 Aug 2018 13:10:03
Can’t see Morelos going anywhere this late in the day. Gerrard is a big fan of his. That being said, he’s got a target on his back as soon as he steps on to that pitch on Sunday. They will be targeting him from the firstborn whistle. Personally I’d start with Laff. If I’m a celtic defender then the last name I want to see on that team sheet is Lafferty.


19.) 31 Aug 2018 13:18:43
Morelos is going NOWHERE today.


20.) 31 Aug 2018 15:59:37
LDM Other week you said Wallace would NEVER make bench so I suppose Morelos off today then 😂😂👍👍
All the best bud 👍.


21.) 31 Aug 2018 17:24:33
reliability. morelos lol i'd keep him for now if he gets on scoresheet for colombia we could be looking at 20 million.


 

 

26 Aug 2018 22:35:02
Just thinking Bears, maybe the change in formation was a mistake? It clearly affected the defence, conceding 3 goals. Also, I'm not sure that Morelos and Lafferty should both start together, especially in the upcoming two games this week. For the game at the piggery, I'd start Morelos and keep Lafferty on the bench as we'll need to tighten up again. I do hope Couibaly is back this week and Arfield maybe should have started today. Still unbeaten though and who said we'd win every game!

DOIGER

1.) 27 Aug 2018 00:39:55
Trouble with today's system was we had two sitting midfielders in Jack and halliday, SG went for dig and strength, when really we should have stuck to our high pressing 4321.


2.) 27 Aug 2018 02:36:35
Na this is the formation going forward. Just need to teach tavernier how to track a runner and we should be fine.


3.) 27 Aug 2018 06:07:02
Listening to SG post match interview and I've a feeling this is now going to be our formation - I'm not convinced tbh.


4.) 27 Aug 2018 06:19:49
Formation was not the problem for any of their goals. Was Tavs crap defending at set plays and a very bad piece of bad luck.


5.) 27 Aug 2018 06:27:10
Rfc Chris the formation is fin yes. IMO tavernier can't be taught to track runners he's had about 5 managers at rangers now and they couldn't teach him.


6.) 27 Aug 2018 07:43:45
I don’t think it was the formation. It was bad defending by tav and to be honest when he took Barasic off and went 442 that’s when we lost control of the game. We live and learn. Good thing we’re going to get 3 points next Sunday. Still fully confident we can beat that mob.


7.) 27 Aug 2018 08:05:31
Of it was! We’ve been solid with a back 4 all season but in saying that if you can’t defend set pieces you get punished.


8.) 27 Aug 2018 08:10:36
as a defender defending against set pieces if you haven't got the desire to get to the ball before the man your marking you will get found out time and time again which has is happening to tav some of our best ever defenders butcher gough amoruso they had pure desire to win that ball you can't coach desire so unless tav finds it from somewhere which i think is doubtful he’ll always get found out.


9.) 27 Aug 2018 08:47:48
Wouldn’t blame the formation for losing 2 goals at set plays and a slip. We still scored 3. Looked weak on the left when barisic went off for Middleton. The last 20 minutes in some of our games are becoming really stressful but still a work in progress. Back the team and manager lads because it will be bumpy at times.


10.) 27 Aug 2018 09:00:58
Defo start big laff gainst the filth
He frightens the rubbish outa them.


11.) 27 Aug 2018 09:47:09
Spot on colshygers. You can have all the talent in the world, but if you don't have the real desire within you, you will certainly get found out every time. ONWARDS AND UPWARDS THE FAMOUS.


12.) 27 Aug 2018 10:28:11
Jzer - The high press will only work if it's against a team that want to play football, Motherwell's tactic was going long to their 2 strikers everytime.


13.) 27 Aug 2018 10:44:21
Let’s face it guys, we played a rugby team yesterday. No all our games are going to be like that, the part I’m most frustrated with is the fact second half we got sucked into playing their game, launching long balls running channels. If we had just looked after the ball better and played the same as the first half we would have been fine. Think the ref let their boys away with too many niggly fouls before producing cards meaning the same guys got 3/ 4 fouls each before the ball started rolling. Goldson slipped can’t do nothing about that but Tav was naive, I coach my little brothers team and i can tell you now if any of them got caught twice like that they would be dropped it’s embarrassing for a pro player to not be able to follow a man. He HAS to learn, seeing a lot of calls for him to play midfield, sorry guys but even in midfield he will still need to defend from a corner so that doesn’t solve our problem.

Just a side note, absolute state of the league btw that’s aberdeen and now Motherwell celebrated last minute equalisers against us like they’ve won the champs league, embarrassing tinpot clubs the lot of them.


14.) 27 Aug 2018 11:05:07
That formation would have worked with a quality centre back in alongside our two regular centre backs but in any event you cannot legislate for someone slipping when they are well in control of the situation. If we had got off to a better start then it would have been a different game although our players would still have been nudged, kicked, and generally roughed up, since that is Motherwell's game! Tavernier is superb going forward but defensively he is weak and this was proved again yesterday. While Halliday was on the Park our midfield was doing well, Arfield's introduction at Halliday's expense proved a mistake since he was anonymous from when he came on until the final whistle. Taking off Barisic, who was well in control at left back and replacing him with young Middleton was also a mistake since it allowed Motherwell to attack down both flanks and if the idea was to used Middleton's speed then you play the ball to him on the ground, not up in the air. That just played into their tactics. As for the Wallace substitution fundamentally wrong given the timing, especially for a guy who hasn't played a competitive game for the best part of a year!


15.) 27 Aug 2018 12:58:59
All 3 substitutions were poor.

Assume Halliday taken off as was on booking and narrowly escaped second yellow card before being taken off. Airfield as replacement added nothing.

Not clear why Barasic taken off unless he was injured. Middleton added nothing although to be fair to the boy he never once received the ball.

Timing of Wallace substitution was crazy and if SG thoughy we would benefit from his height I should have been brought on earlier rather than Middleton or Arfield.

Why was McCrowrie not on the bench and brought on,


16.) 27 Aug 2018 14:54:44
Suspension.


 

 

14 Jul 2018 08:27:58
Atakayi, Rudden and Hardie - three forwards in our development squad. If any one of them had been given a run alongside Morelos last season I'm sure it would have made a difference. What is the point in having a development squad if the club is not going to develop them in the first team? We've signed too many has-beens over the last few years and look at the tripe that has to be cleared out yet again before the season starts properly.

DOIGER

1.) 14 Jul 2018 10:50:51
It's easier said than done Old firm fans especially are impatient and want success straight away with these youngsters you can't just throw them into 1st team as it can ruin them with to much pressure on their shoulders this is why we have to calm down with the boy Middleton everybody wants him to start games but we cannot be putting that kind of pressure so soon on young lad these players need developed correctly at a good speed not to much to soon the loan system we use for Hardie especially will stand him in good stead in coming years


2.) 14 Jul 2018 12:07:55
We done the same with Docherty and McCorrie, these guys need to play without pressure and play selective games. These guys are the future and we can’t burn them out or hammer their confidence


3.) 14 Jul 2018 12:42:45
There is an old adage in football 'if you are good enough you are old enough'. I remember young players like Denis Law, Jim Forrest, Derek Johnstone and Colin Stein all playing at a high level while very young. Forrest scored 57 goals in a season when still only 20. How long do you keep farming these youngsters out - until they are 27 or 28? Utter tosh. McCrorie is clearly good enough to play in the first team now and so is Docherty. Looks like Middleton is too. Derek Johnstone was only 16 when he made his first team debut for Rangers. Rant over.


4.) 14 Jul 2018 13:01:41
Doiger you answer your own question, they are not good enough yet.


5.) 14 Jul 2018 13:13:12
That's the difference, mcrorie is good enough and has established himself as one of the first names on the team sheet, unfortunately hardie isn't (yet anyway) but obviously they want another year's loan to see how he progresses. Rudden and atakayi have bags of potential but are still raw and not ready for anything other than being involved in first team squads with occasional sub appearance if games allow. We need another striker to go with alf and sadiq. Someone with experience and the knack of scoring goals


6.) 14 Jul 2018 13:17:19
I think we are over protective of our younger players look at the amount of late teens early 20s in the world cup Mbappe is 19!IMO it's sink or swim no point in developing the boys if the weight of the badge is too much
There have been seasoned pros can't cope


7.) 14 Jul 2018 14:40:44
You said it yourself if you're old enough you're good enough. If they're not impressing in training to point of starting a game or getting on the bench then they're obviously not good enough at this point in time in the eyes of the management who see them everyday. The real talent will ultimately shine through in the end if it's only one youngster out of 10 then so be it.


8.) 14 Jul 2018 14:47:24
Hardie isn’t good enough, Rudden has a long way to go I think Atakayi could get some time this year.

For me only McCrorie and Middleton have got it. I believe there’s a kid called Williamson apparently potential superstar.

Too many on here think cause their Rangers youth they should get a shout. If they’re not getting a game they’re not ready.


9.) 14 Jul 2018 17:15:35
4 managers now in the last 5 years have deemed hardie not ready. They saw him every day we don’t. I fear the championship is his level


10.) 14 Jul 2018 19:18:40
Yeah SharpshootersPOM, but look at who these managers were. Caixhinho, Warburton, McCoist, blah, blah. Great managers, not. Time we took a chance on youth. I'm not saying play six development squad players but goodness me surely if a couple of these players were given a decent run last season we couldn't have done any worse. You and others on here are talking as if we have had uninterrupted success over the last five years. Eh, sorry we have won f*** all! Look at the crap we've brought in, e. g. Pena, Herrera, Cummings, Forrester, Cardoso, Windass, etc, etc.


11.) 14 Jul 2018 19:54:51
if these boys have anything about them they should thrive under pressure. that's what football is. in european leagues what we call boys ie 18-24 they call professionals


12.) 14 Jul 2018 20:09:30
or they end up just doing a bunk as they know they have no chance. billy gilmour, charlie telfer, these players will continue to leave. PLAY THEM!


13.) 14 Jul 2018 20:14:54
THESE IDIOTS WHO SAY PROTECT THEM. DO YOU THINK THEY WANT PROTECTED. or want an opportunity to skin an make a fool of more expierianced players to make a name for thier selves. ps colt team thing not going far enough there should be a scottish elect team that can only sign players that are eligible for scotland national team or will be eligible (youth) and no older than 23.as soon as 23 ship them out if they have a club lined up.


14.) 14 Jul 2018 20:15:42
take the fear out of our football again, go back to great football


15.) 14 Jul 2018 22:21:31
So why is gerrard not playing him DOIGER? He surely knows a striker when he see 1 considering who he has played with no? Dry your eyes because my opinion differs from the great football managers of our time like your good self 😏


16.) 15 Jul 2018 08:39:34
Gerforlife have a look where telfer is now-another who thot he too big for the club-and i state no man ever will be


17.) 15 Jul 2018 09:00:40
DOIGER, totally agree mate0. Hardie could easily have been given a place on the bench for certain games in the last 2 seasons. Brought on for the last 20-25 minutes. Who knows, he could have come on in a game we were struggling in and bagged a couple of goals. If he and Atakayi, Rudden etc aren't given a chance then we'll never know if they're good enough or not. If Billy Gilmour hadn't gone to Chelsea, would we be farming him out to Livingston or Falkirk every season until he was 22 or 23? A question for those who disagree- we're a goal down, 20 mins left of the game and Hardie and Herrera are on the bench. Which one to you send on to the park? I know which one I'd choose!


 

 

01 Jun 2018 12:01:33
Local Plymouth newspaper reporting that Argyle might go for Ryan Hardie. I do not understand why Warburton and Caixhina didn't give Hardie a chance. They can't say the players they did pick exactly set the heather alight! Yet another youngster might be leaving. What is the point of having a youth development squad if none of them ever get a chance? Ross McCrorie has proved that given that chance, they can take it. I never thought Cummings would be the answer though he never got a chance either.

DOIGER

1.) 01 Jun 2018 13:23:54
Well that’s now 3 Rangers managers who have been in charge of him now. Think there’s maybe a clue there mate.


2.) 01 Jun 2018 15:09:07
Must admit guys I am disappointed how Docherty performed but do understand he is young and it might take him time to adjust playing for a massive club? Let’s hope Stevie gives him a chance but I think he will struggle for game time? 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧


3.) 01 Jun 2018 15:12:00
The lad can finish but I think the Scottish championship is his level. Hope he proves me wrong tho


4.) 01 Jun 2018 15:22:46
He's not at the level we need to win trophies - lower SPFL/ Championship at best


5.) 01 Jun 2018 15:36:40
Doiger mate S. G. started today don't blame him IF Hardie goes it will be because the manager don't rate him and I'll trust S. G. s opinion over yours. WE would all love 2 or 3 of our own to come through regularly but if they ain't good enough sadly that's it. We do seem to be linked with more youngsters since Murty left hope that continues.


6.) 01 Jun 2018 16:36:17
I thought Docherty was solid for us. He was the scapegoat after the Hampden fiasco.


7.) 01 Jun 2018 19:06:15
If Gerard doesn't keep him that will be 4 managers who didn't rate him! That will surely be the end of debate


8.) 01 Jun 2018 19:20:03
Liam Gallagher, DOIGER is Hardie's secret dad; he's been trying to make a case for him for years and, like the player, he's not doing very well.


9.) 01 Jun 2018 20:21:10
Was Plymouths Centre Back Sonny Bradley not attracting interest from Rangers and few weeks ago?
Could be part of the deal if Hardie is released by SG.


 

 

16 Apr 2018 09:47:57
Something clearly isn't right in the dressing room and that must be down to the manager. I thought we made good signings in January with Goss, Murphy, Docherty and Cummings all brought in. We've played well in some games but something isn't right. I don't believe we are as bad as 4-0 suggests. Watching the highlights again there is no way either of the penalties should have been given, very soft. How Morelos didn't score three goals I'll never know. Gordon is either brilliant against us or lucky. I put this down to a very bad day at the office and hopefully changes can be made for the last five games to ensure we finish 2nd. Get rid of Martin as he is a liability.

DOIGER

1.) 16 Apr 2018 11:15:41
Would have more respect for you if you weren’t trying to give excuses both penalties were correct. Not heard a single ex player including a number of your own say different you got pumped end of totally outclassed by a better team


2.) 16 Apr 2018 11:17:59
Doiger ask yourself if that had happened to us in their box and they weren't given We would all be up in arms Mcrorrie penalty was as clear as it can be never saw holts as I'd chucked it by then
I'm surprised at your post you're generally reasonable with your posts but think you're wrong here bud


3.) 16 Apr 2018 11:18:50
Should have taken the £11 million for Morelos but that's hindsight.


4.) 16 Apr 2018 11:25:57
Well said. Yesterday was terrible no one can question that but there have been positives since January. We need three high quality new players (as a minimum) to go straight into the team, there are around 8 positions where we have players who in the right set up can do a job. At this point it is essential that everyone holds their nerve and doesn't get hysterical. We mustn't through the baby out with the bathwater here, we must build on the progress that has been made and not go back to square one yet again.


5.) 16 Apr 2018 11:37:50
There was no £11m for Morelos!


6.) 16 Apr 2018 11:57:53
Doiger sorry mate but in my opinion you are totally wrong, we are lucky that they never scored more than 4, they strolled through the game and never got out of second gear, first half we couldn't pass, kept giving the ball away, didn't get the ball to Murphy or Morelos the list just goes on,
As soon as Alves came on the defence looked more organised and he was winning everything in the air Martin was having another nightmare game,
We are all hurting after yesterday but at least we all now know that we need a manager who can motivate the players,


7.) 16 Apr 2018 11:58:58
ok first of all we were atrocious and they deserved to win absl no question they strolled it and the score cld have been bigger. fact

however 1st pen was a tug a yard outside the box take off your green tinted specs timmy

if that was a pen for us the open line wld be in meltdown with all the usual conspiracies and establishment refs guff . it was a red card but never ever a pen.

that decision would not have changed result but it was still wrong decision just like sterling pen for man city at spurs - it was a yard outside the box

if you can’t see that have another look i know a good guide dog if you need it


8.) 16 Apr 2018 11:59:44
Penalties were both correct decisions stone wall we just didn’t turn up tactics were poor no idea why we played Halliday I know Windass is not everyone’s cup f tea but the thing he can do is run with the ball getting us up the park, we were stuck in our own half Celtic were all over us, but I agree with you TomVallance we can just condem all players we showed in the home game we can compete with them to a degree, they are still a good bit ahead of us, but with a good manager (I’ve no idea who) who can get the best out of players and three or four quality additions especially at the back and a midfield player who can compete with Brown we would at least make a game of it, Murty has been hung out to dry by this board he’s never a manager he was the U20s coach for Christ sake, theboard really need to take a look at themselves that three managers they have appointed wasted millions and we are no further forward unless there are changes soon we could end not even in a Euro spot and next season will be a fight for second again, my fear is fans will drift away season ticket sales will decline I’m old enough to remember sitting inside Ibrox with less than 20000 fans, the ones I have spoke to are loosing the will my renewal is just short of £600 not cheap but I fear we are becoming the new Leeds Utd a big club who got it wrong fans drift and the ones who are left just accept it, right now we need leaders right from the boardroom to the pitch, look at yesterday we had no leaders on the pitch no one to drive us on a manager who doesn’t command respect, why did the board come out with that statement last week basically saying a new manager would come in next season we were about to play our biggest game and the manager was undermined, we have to stand firm we need to stay together and the board need to act


9.) 16 Apr 2018 14:35:52
I agree thinkaboutit, I have followed Rangers for 57 years, and this is the worst team I have seen, and there have been one or two horrendous displays. Murty's tactics were totally wrong, we sat too deep and against this Celtic side that is suicidal. I thought that Tavernier was the only player with some sort of pass mark yesterday, Halliday reacted through embarrassment when he raged after being taken off, I personally would have taken Dorrans off instead of Candeis as he offered nothing all game, as for Martin enough has been said already. What has Cummings got to do to get some game time just now, the lad proved often enough against us that he can be problematic in big games, Morelos has had his chance and blown it in the big games, he tries hard, but whatever was offered from China or wherever should have been accepted. I look at the journeymen that Motherwell have brought in, in particular the man who replaced Moult, and wonder what the hell Mark Allen is getting paid for. If the rumours of GM having stepped down, I wouldn't blame him, and thank him for at least trying to get things sorted, too much for him though.


10.) 16 Apr 2018 15:38:56
Haven't seen or read anything bout Murty going back to youth but we can only hope. Silence from board regarding successor is deafening.


11.) 16 Apr 2018 17:49:43
They were both 100% penalties that is a fact


12.) 16 Apr 2018 19:40:19
If Murty didn’t fancy the job then all he had to say was no thanks, he didn’t and it’s not worked out for him. He shouldn’t be above criticism though.


13.) 17 Apr 2018 09:42:26
Got to laugh at that Trev, comment, a tug outside the box means it wasn't a penalty, maybe if Dembelle had been tripped outside the box and then he had stumbled inside the box, you might have an argument, but a tug and then he ran strongly into the box before getting more or less wrestled by McCrorie, are you allowed to drive with those blue lenses?

Great win yesterday regardless of how many players Motherwell had on the pitch. The penalty award was correct. McHugh's arms were both up in the air therefore making it likely that they would make contact with the ball being struck towards goal. I like the look of Grezda and Arfield was class. We have Livingston, Hearts and Aberdeen in our next three league games and if we win the first two of these we will be top of the league on our own (the unwashed play the sheep on 2nd Dec in the league cup) . If that happens, let's see if we can keep our noses in front until we play them at Ibrox at Christmas.

We can always be optimistic Doiger, We are due a wee run.


 

 

11 Nov 2018 10:10:31
I think when Goldson and Katic were our regular two central defenders the team were doing well. This tinkering by alternating between Katic and Worral hasn't helped the confidence of these two. Similarly, we need a regular left back while Barisic is injured. It is no coincidence in my mind that our form has stuttered since this tinkering began. We need a run with a settled defence. OK injuries happen, e. g. Wallace and Barisic, but I'd play Halliday at left back until Barisic is fit again. In midfield, Jack should be the first name on the teamsheet and I'd like to see McCrorie given a run. Big game today as ever and a win is a must. Win our next two games (both at home) and the worst scenario is we'd be second behind that lot.

Worrall is better than Katic. Agree with Halliday at LB - Flannagan is not good enough going forward when at LB.

I'm sure we are all disappointed at the last three results but dips in form happen. We are bound to go on a good, long run and we are 4th in the league only 4 points behind them. I'd like to see Barisic and Katic back and Rossiter given a run. Let's assess where we are after Christmas then we can see where SG is taking us. In January, we must sign an attacking midfielder and a back-up striker.

Morelos is going to give some team a good hiding on his own one day soon and maybe tonight's the night! I'd go for:

McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Katic, Barisic (if fit) ; Jack, Middleton, Rossiter, Arfield, Kent; Morelos.

Barasic injured again! further two weeks.

Murty! That has to be the most retrograde step I've ever heard. I for one think SG doing great job save for latest defeat to sheep. Personally speaking for young manager he is outstanding. Maybe need to get rid of few and let him improve in window. We all know who to ditch Sadiq, etc and allow creative midfielder in. Not going to slag Davis but don't think we need him. Jack on fire, Coullibally on fire and injuries to return. I know people are going to say but Davis perfect Capt. Material. So is Jack, and more. We simply don't need Davis.

Some people on here need to get a grip calling for SG to quit (or was that Timmy trolls? ) . We've lost 3 domestic games 1-0 and are unbeaten in Europe and in the league, not far behind the teams above us. We have Dorrans and Murphy out injured long term and a new team still blending. I thought the football at times yesterday was excellent but we couldn't carve out the final chance. Had Morelos and/ or Lafferty been playing I'm sure we would have won it. Why though did SG take off Jack and Candeias and do so late on? Jack was immense. Get 6 points from our next two league games and we'll move up the table. Calm down, calm down!

We lost to a shocking side yesterday and didn’t even force a save from their keeper. If you think that’s acceptable then fine, as usual you cherry pick statistics to suit yourself. The fact is we have kept 2 clean sheets out of 9 league games. We have won only 1 away game out of 5. We were shocking against Celtic, Livingston, Hamilton and Aberdeen in the cup. Candeias final ball was wasteful and what exactly did Jack do that was immense? Open your eyes we are poor away from Ibrox and still need players who can open teams up until then every away game will be a struggle.


2.) 29 Oct 2018 08:27:51
For the amount of possession that Rangers had yesterday, we produced very little in the final third. Tavernier is now taking ALL free kicks and corners and his delivery yesterday and Thursday was worse than woeful. Time to mix it up a bit, we need corners and free kicks delivered with pace, we need runners going to front post across defenders, its just too repetitive and easy for teams to read. As for yesterdays subs, thought Jack was OK but a bit negative, as for Candeias, he worked his socks off and looks to be potentially a better right back than TAV! Aberdeen were poor but our soft centre showed agan.


3.) 29 Oct 2018 08:45:21
ArthurD, I said calm down! I didn't say this away form was acceptable at all. We didn't turn up against Celtic or Livingston and should have won yesterday. I thought Jack was classy and Aberdeen never really troubled our defence most of the game. Yes, we didn't hit a shot on target which is poor. I'm just saying, calling for SG's head already is ludicrous! I didn't expect to win a trophy this season even after SG was appointed. The league cup is gone but we could well still be in Europe after Christmas (who would have thought) and we could well be 1st or 2nd in the league by then too. I don't know what the answer is regarding our away form but I AGREE that it has to change. Morelos and Lafferty's suspensions cost the team yesterday.


4.) 29 Oct 2018 08:46:09
Agree need to get a grip ye sg got it wrong yesterday with a lot of things but sacking give us a break . thing is Aberdeen had a plan to frustrate rangers and hopefully score from a set piece they got one corner second half scored from it that’s football . ye need more quality mid to front so January be interesting and we will finish in front of Aberdeen so let them have their wee moment beating bad Glasgow Rangers sure we will get our own back in future.


5.) 29 Oct 2018 09:08:36
Shocking against Motherwell aswell. Don't know what game you were watching yesterday because the standard was abysmal.


6.) 29 Oct 2018 09:21:20
Moralas and lafferty were av available for the Livingston game and that was as bad as yesterday.


7.) 29 Oct 2018 10:17:21
Absolutely shocking yesterday not 1 player stood out for us, we couldn’t beat a very poor Aberdeen side. And before people say we didn’t have Morelos or Lafferty it’s still no excuse. We won’t win the Europa league we won’t win the league as we aren’t consistent enough our only hope of silverware is the Scottish cup.


8.) 29 Oct 2018 11:04:24
I’m in the @doiger camp. People really need to get a grip on here at times. Nobody said it was going to be all unicorns and rainbows under Gerrard. But it isn’t the doom and gloom others are making out either!

We don’t have a right to win every game because we are the Famous Glasgow Rangers! It has to be earned and not enough players turned up yesterday. It’s why even at our worst we still gave the Sheep a game.
If you can’t see we’ve came on leaps and bounds since last season then you must be blind.

The EL run itself is testament to that fact. Teams still see us as a big scalp and raise their game accordingly - the Hamilton players stats were 70% higher than when they were beat by the Hivs the previous week.
In Gerrard We Trust. Let’s Go! #55 🔴⚪️🔵.

Lot being said about game.
I said at start of season we are clearly work in progress, guys like candaes tavernier flanagan ejaria and coulibally no better than squad players. Sadiq has played his one and only Ninety minutes.
SG looks genuinely upset, annoyed after match. Some more quality required in middle and up front.
We are better than last season, no doubt, the EL money will be a very unexpected bonus going forward. Also the run will attract players.
Expectations too high, my hope is we continue to improve and have a massive league push.
We need to be behind the club, SG and the team whilst always striving to seek continuous improvement.
Stick together we will get there, be divided we will be conquered.

I've never rated Lafferty coming back as being a long-term answer for us. Sure, he can be an emergency filler when Morelos is injured or suspended but he can't be part of SG's bigger plan going forward. In January, I hope as well as an attacking midfielder SG also signs an experienced attacker. Lafferty needs to grow up.

The name Rooney should give away his leanings towards a Scottish team.

I agree Sunday is a must-win against Accies. Also, with celtic playing Hibs and the Sheep playing Hearts somebody has to drop points on Saturday. Then Spartak at home followed by the Sheep. An important week coming up! Am I right in assuming that the top 2 from each Europa League group qualify for the knockout stage plus 8 dropping down from the Champions League?

Solanke coming in would be great and we haven't really seen Sadiq yet. Also, can I mention my old mate Hardie lol? At least if we'd kept him he might have been back up striker. I promise not to mention Hardie again this season, honest.

Well said Supercoop and the others. The media bias against Rangers in Scotland is an outrage. Even Steven Thompson, an ex-Rangers player, can't bring himself to praise Rangers. Maybe we shouldn't bother but it just made my blood boil when listening to that crap on Sportscene on Sunday! I wonder what they'll say if we go top of the league in a couple of weeks? Onwards and upwards to #55.

Did anybody really, honestly expect us to reach the Europa League group stages this season even after SG was appointed? I certainly didn't. To score 3 goals away from home in Moscow is no mean feat. We need to beat Villareal at Ibrox then go all out in Vienna in the last game. I agree some players are still maturing but surely Jack should be one of the first names on the team sheet? Also, Dorrans and Murphy are out long term and we missed Kent. I'd rather we pick up form in the league now and any further progress in Europe will be a bonus.

Bankie. I'm slightly disappointed that Jack has been dropped to the bench in favour of out-of-form Coulibaly. Good to see Middleton getting a start though. Come on lads grab all three points tonight!

Like young Hardie who was never given a chance. A bit foolish I think to let him go out on loan when we are short of strikers. I don't rate Lafferty as a regular starter and would rather see a youngster given a chance, e. g. Dallas.
