More good news. According to The Scotsman three Turkish players are interested in Carlos Pena!


1.) 03 Jan 2019 11:06:23
Would be great to get him off the books and free up funds for someone decent to come in.

2.) 03 Jan 2019 11:50:48
I meant to say Turkish teams rather than players, in case I'm accused of some sort of phobia!

3.) 03 Jan 2019 13:36:01
I see the Tims have survived the festive period and are back to sitting over a laptop pressing disagree on rangers sites 😂😂
What a life lads what a life 😂😂.



05 Dec 2018 10:32:00
Morning Bears. Anyone have an update on injuries to Barisic and Kent and also is Arfield banned for tonight's game after his red card on Sunday?


1.) 05 Dec 2018 11:14:17
Barisic and Kent very close to return (probably Sunday at Dundee) . I'm sure Arfield will miss tonigjt"s game and be available for Dundee on Sunday. Morelos suspended for Sunday.

2.) 05 Dec 2018 11:16:16
The norm is that you miss the next league game unless the red card is appealed. I don’t think it has been appealed so Arfield will miss tonight’s game.

3.) 06 Dec 2018 13:40:28
Gerrard said it is too early for Kent. Barisic back in squad.



31 Aug 2018 09:37:01
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?


1.) 31 Aug 2018 09:57:39

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!


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



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.


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!

The corruption, bias and downright dislike of Rangers by the SFA and SPFL is so blatant that is laughable. Best thing we can do is get the Gers back to the top as champions and do so year after year. Even they won't be able to do anything about that. With these corrupt institutions and the muppets in the media like Walker, Mutton and Stewart, who'd blame Rangers if they wanted to join the EPL?




14 May 2019 08:12:13
Sandy Jardine, a no-brainer as the best RB we've ever had, closely followed by Bobby Shearer.


1.) 14 May 2019 13:42:08
David Robertson was quality too - him and Laudrup teaming up down the wing.

2.) 14 May 2019 16:27:03
Robertson was very good, but a left back.

3.) 14 May 2019 19:46:36
gary stevens for me

I wasn’t old enough to watch sandy play

tav however has improved a lot and is a cracking player for us.



13 May 2019 11:31:13
Looking back at our results, the league was lost in March. 7 points dropped with draws against Hibs and Kilmarnock and a 2-1 defeat by the unwashed. We also got knocked out of the Scottish Cup in March. If only.


1.) 13 May 2019 11:39:31
Doiger we dropped plenty points where we shouldn't have long before march👍.

2.) 13 May 2019 11:43:23
Yes I know coldo, but I'm just saying that having got back to where we were in the league before the winter break, that progress disappeared because of our poor form in March. However, I think the last six wins on the trot auger well for next season (I'm a glass half-full chap) .

3.) 13 May 2019 11:47:27
For me the league slipped away 1st game after the break at Killie when worrall gave that goal away . all of a sudden they went 3 points ahead and won the game in hand to go 6 in front and what's the gap now?

4.) 13 May 2019 12:00:52
Correct gp huge psychological blow. Just because you are a glass half full guy doiger doesn't mean you are right lol, completely irrelevant what type of guy you are. We went top of the league at tynecastle and then made an @r$e of it the following week. We then drew level before the winter break and what happened after the first game back, we made an @r$se of it again. Up until just before the split inconsistency had plagued us all season. The last 5 or 6 games have been at a level we should be and that does lay down a marker doiger👍.

5.) 13 May 2019 13:00:48
I'd argue it started with failing to take all 3 points at Pittodrie on the opening game, that set the tone for plucking defeat from the jaws of victory. This was followed by random moments of inconsistency that let us down. However, even the Ostriches would struggle to say that we have not progressed this season, and with a better consistency next season we will challenge them.

6.) 13 May 2019 14:49:30
Coldo. There's no denying that a disastrous March cost us the title no matter what happened earlier in the season. We were in a good position at the winter break to push on but didn't. For me, get rid of Morelos and take the cash as the team has played superbly well in winning the last six games, mostly without him. If Defoe and Davis had been fit to play in March well, enough said!

7.) 13 May 2019 15:11:13
Doiger we dropped 21 points before the winter break and 15 points after the winter break. March did not cost us the title. Enough said😁👍.

8.) 13 May 2019 15:18:09
2 points dropped in last minute v Aberdeen
2 points dropped in last minute v Motherwell
1 point dropped and 2 gained by Celtic with their winner at Parkhead

We’d be sitting on 83 and them on 82 going into last game of season.

We need to tighten up at back for 95 mins.

9.) 13 May 2019 15:58:58
Bruised bear, lafferty goal at Dundee that was disallowed, hibs at ibrox.

10.) 13 May 2019 17:49:58
Jboy21- between us we’ve won us the league. Rejoice! 👍.

11.) 13 May 2019 22:03:27
Bruise. Next year mate.



13 May 2019 08:21:02
I've just watched the recording of Sportscene and Stewart's face is a picture of misery though Thompson reluctantly gave us praise. Walker on Sky Sports is another bitter wee man. Great performance and should have been more than two. The second goal was a peach from Kamara through Defoe to Arfield. The future now does look bright.


1.) 13 May 2019 08:30:46
What a state the TV coverage has become
sportscene has become a permanent hunt for anything negative to say about Rangers.
Sky Sports coverage is a joke - to sit and listen to a Celtic supporter spout rubbish for 90 mins is a hard watch
Then we have BT sport 😂😂😂 constant controversial comments to try and be relevant
Thankfully Sutton and co will be looking for work at the end of the season - let’s just hope it’s not in football

The positive to take from all the is that more and more people should just be piling money into Rangers TV.

2.) 13 May 2019 08:49:29
Stewart has had an agenda against us since he was told he wasn't good enough to play for us. It must be in there contract with the BBC that they are against anything to do with rangers as for Thompson the less said the better.

3.) 13 May 2019 08:52:21
Thats exactly what sky and bt are fraser52👍.

4.) 13 May 2019 09:52:00
More replays of that elbow on Sportscene than all the goals put together. Wonder if Jonathan Sutherland will have sent the footage to the SFA this morning.



06 May 2019 07:13:14
Anyone think that Morelos should start against the unwashed next week? For me, he doesn't and SG should go with the same team that started yesterday (obviously apart from McGregor) . If only this run of form had begun a couple of months earlier and we would have won the league by now! As for Shagger's 'kick', I've watched the incident a few times now - was any contact actually made? I know it was stupid and the intent was there, just wondering if he actually touched the Hibs player.


1.) 06 May 2019 07:42:07
It was a red card all day long and then to feign injury himself was totally embarrassing! Iack of discipline has cost us big time this season.

2.) 06 May 2019 07:43:49
No DOIGER, I wouldn't start morelos against them on sunday mate. I wouldn't disrupt our current starting 11,as the team, especially so in midfield are playing terrifically well. The players currently wearing the starting jerseys, most certainly deserve to hold onto them, for the time being.
If it ain't broke, there's NO need to fix it. Same team for me with obviously the forced situation appon gerrard, of having to play foderingham in goals, instead of mcgregor.

3.) 06 May 2019 09:58:04
Doiger love your passion and support but it's red all day long indefensible action I kinda get your drift as there was zero reaction from the hibs forward but Mcgregor seems to realise what he's done then feign injury! Come on bud get real.

4.) 06 May 2019 10:27:55
I’ve also watched it and contact is minimal if any, but that’s not the point the intent warranted a red card or the stupidity of the act? It could have cost two points (maybe)
And he is such a brilliant keeper, rush of blood .

5.) 06 May 2019 13:02:43
No Doiger, morelos doesn't start and McGregor was a red all day long.

Easytiger. Just because Championship teams are paying upwards of £10 million for players, it doesn't mean that they are top class players. Most of them are overrated in my opinion. It is market forces at work. I watched most of the West Brom v Villa game last night and nobody impressed me that much, especially Grealish. Does anyone really think that Griezman is worth over 100 million, which is what Barcelona are reportedly prepared to pay to sign him from Athletic Madrid?

The 'fantastic' McGinn is playing in the second tier of English football at the moment, i. e. the Championship and could well remain there next season, so he's not that great. I disagree about the rave comments about him. He is definitely NOT better than Arfield, Kamara or Jack, but probably better than Dorrans (so am I! ) .

Hurrah for Hardie, at last! Don't understand the Hardie knockers when the lad has never been given a chance. SG can at least give him a go and see what happens. And Coldo, who do we already have much better than Hardie (forgetting about Defoe and Morelos) - are you saying Lafferty is better?

Supercoop. Your bile and vitriol against Dundee Utd is vile itself. They weren't responsible for our demise, it was the crooks who ruined our great club. I'm a Dundonian and find your tone out of order and certainly not banter. Weren't you banned before? Calm down and have a sensible debate.

With the money Man City have I could have been their manager and won the treble!

Sell him and get as much money as we can. The man's a liability who cost us points this season. Nobody is indispensable.

Good post Bluepete36. Don't forget we have Rossiter, Docherty and Murphy to come back, maybe Dorrans too so plenty of competition there. If my mate Hardie comes back as well then goalscoring problem sorted!

Interesting parallels between Lampard and Gerrard in their first season as managers. Both former England legends and they have both done well, a breath of fresh air compared to all those foreign coaches. Perhaps a Derby County and Rangers double next season!
