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!



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.


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.


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?

I disagree with all this rubbish about not bothering about our national team. I always want Scotland to win regardless of the team, though I do admit that Strachan was clearly biased against Rangers players. I'd always pick the in-form players at the time, not by reputation and on that basis Naismith, Robertson and McGregor would be the first three names on the team sheet.


1.) 19 Sep 2018 13:13:13
Sorry Doiger, a used to be a Scottish fan as a kid 30 odd years ago but not now. After all that's gone against our club and years ago I used to respect Aitken, McStay and Nicholas but how can I support Broony and Griffiths in a Scotland strip when they clearly have issues with our club! 🇬🇧.

2.) 19 Sep 2018 14:21:49
Never have and never will wear or support scotland in my 50 years of living.

3.) 19 Sep 2018 15:12:50
Of course they have issues with Rangers! They are modern day Celtic players, you would love them if they were in our team. These blokes will still drink their wine and that after the game but Old Firm has been full of players who hate the other club throughout the years. If we had people with the dig Broony has then maybe we wouldn't get pumped off them all the time.

4.) 19 Sep 2018 16:02:10
Listen So72 get a grip! Did you see Billy McNeil or big Roy Aitken carry on like that Cretan Griffiths at Ibrox? 🇬🇧 So you can stick yir tartan army where the sun don’t shine!

I’ve supported rangers and Scotland since I was a boy won’t change now ye the hates been worse last few years but it’s always been there let them spout off hate I am what I am and I can understand why people won’t support them but I’m a proud Scot as well so everybody to their own.

6.) 19 Sep 2018 17:32:51
Sure i have said this before but can we stop bigging up Brown like he is world beater 🤢 cringey as f**k.

7.) 19 Sep 2018 19:18:45
Stewartyg65 I too am a proud and patriotic Scot, as well as a proud citizen of the UK. This has nothing to do with my feelings as a Scot and everything to do with the way the SFA and the tartan persons have treated my club over a number of years - an organisation and a bunch of cretinous morons who would have partied long and hard if we had died. They treat us appallingly, their support sing hate songs about us (I have first hand experience of this) and they are in Celtic's back pocket. I now support my wee country in everything imaginable - except international football, even though it hurts me as someone who first saw Scotland playing 56 years ago.

8.) 19 Sep 2018 19:53:02
I understand duty calls but since i went too watch Scotland early 70,s I’ve always watched them I’m saying I’m not letting their corrupt ways change my love of supporting rangers and Scotland I agree with everything your saying and respect this.

9.) 19 Sep 2018 20:14:47
I don’t know how any Rangers fan can support Scotland when players like Griffiths and brown played for them. 2 guys who don’t hide their hatred for our club. I used to never miss a game at Hampden but no more it will be a cold day in hell before I cheer the likes of Griffiths.

Here Here, Arthur D🇬🇧.

11.) 19 Sep 2018 21:47:44
I feel exactly the same, Arthir.

12.) 19 Sep 2018 23:09:12
Arthur D you need to grow up. I remember Scotland teams with McGrain, McNeil and Jimmy Johnstone, all great players. When you play for Scotland the club jersey should be left in the dressing room. Club rivalry like the Old Firm is fantastic bu we must show the good grace to admit when other players are good. In the present celtic team only Tierney and Gordon are international class, imo.

13.) 20 Sep 2018 18:39:24
@snell - I’m with you on The Legomuncher. Brilliant at driving his team forward. But a great player? They are having a laugh. Would rather have a fit Kevin Thomson over him all day long.

14.) 20 Sep 2018 18:30:44
Yately well said Big billy McNeil and Danny McGrain must be totally ashamed if those two . Even frank McAvennie and Nicholas I have respect for . but wiping your nose on an opposing teams colours . abusing an opposing teams directors and inciting a riot in the name of your club. no thanks . I kn Souness did similar with galatasary . but on your I envy doorstep. those two are nothing but neds. and totally deserve the karma.



17 Sep 2018 09:24:42
Though he possesses great potential, Morelos clearly has trouble sticking the ball in the back of the net. For the chances he gets he should be scoring 30+ goals a season. I think if an offer of £10 million or more is made in January Rangers should take it. The team looks to have goals from all areas and it doesn't matter who scores the goals as long as they go in the net! My old chestnut about Hardie, well if he had been given the chances Morelos has had then I bet he'd score quite a few. Get him back from loan in January.


1.) 17 Sep 2018 10:27:21
Hi first post! If morelos has trouble sticking the ball in the back of the net! As you claim then how did he finish What? Joint second highest scorer in the league last season?

2.) 17 Sep 2018 10:46:01
Was with you until Hardie, Rangers need a top claass Striker not a championship 6 stone boy.

3.) 17 Sep 2018 11:05:15
Seriously u want Hardie back from Livingston to replace our Columbian international? Morelos makes half his chance, finished a hard chance that was wrongly ruled offside, won us a penalty and his movement is word class. 10 for wagged 22.5 pus add on for demebele a capped morelos on a 4 years contract blows these figures out the water. People need to give the kid a break have Gerrard falco Bacca all praising the young man yet some of our fans still like to put him down.

4.) 17 Sep 2018 11:22:55
How is Hardie doing?

5.) 17 Sep 2018 11:43:35
Do you not think anyone interested in morelos would notice the same as you morelos isn't natural finisher
We will never get any more than 5 million thinks unfortunately but would take it.

6.) 17 Sep 2018 12:40:18
I think the way that Morelos plays allows our team to play a certain way/ style.

Especially when he is holding up play, he brings players into the game.

His goal ratio will improve, but having him in there pressing, chasing hassling, holding up play etc is invaluable and very hard to replace with a goal machine.

7.) 17 Sep 2018 12:43:07
Ryan hardie who can't get into the Livy team right now? haha. Morelos makes chances, gets in great positions and brings others into play. yes his finishing needs to improve but we are a much weaker side without him.

8.) 17 Sep 2018 14:10:16
Scored a perfectly legitimate goal on Saturday, which was a great finish and anticipated it well.

He's got 6 goals already this season and brings a lot more than just goals to our team. 24 goals in 50 appearances, majority of those appearances coming for that shocking side we had last season.

Basically a goal every second game, now a full Colombian I internationalist at 22 years old and you want him replaced by Ryan Hardie?


9.) 17 Sep 2018 14:34:55
Are you at the windup with this Hardie isn’t good enough see he’s banging them in right enough is he even getting a game.

10.) 17 Sep 2018 13:48:29
“Hardie can’t get in the livi team” bit hard to play when he’s out for months for a bad knee injury? 🤔just made his return at the weekend.

11.) 17 Sep 2018 14:14:06
Hardie has only just come back from injury this weekend. He will feature heavily in the livi team. sure people on here just make things up.

Morelos is one to keep if we can. The amount he does for the team is outstanding. only a matter of time until he starts banging them in too.

12.) 17 Sep 2018 14:44:12
Dunfermline only reason hardie not playing is injury. Back on Saturday
How is Morelos not a natural finisher, a goal every two games since he went to Finland then us.

13.) 17 Sep 2018 14:47:49
Gersman. If you've read my posts over the months I am winding up about Hardie, so keep mentioning his name. I do feel he was never given a chance though. My worry about Morelos is if he keeps missing sitters (he did it again on Saturday) then it will cost us dear in games where one goal could be the difference. It will be interesting to see how Hardie gets on playing for Livingston and how many goals he scores.

14.) 17 Sep 2018 16:31:54
Fair enough I wasn't aware he had been out injured. Still as boabt78 says why would we replace our Columbian international with a player who gets nowhere near our side and is playing at livy?

15.) 17 Sep 2018 17:16:31
Hardie will never be good enough. Pedro warbs and murty all looked over him and now gerrard jes not good enough same as all other youth we've had that folk thot were class. Beerman murdoch etc.

16.) 17 Sep 2018 18:22:55
If you are comparing Hardie with Morelos I’m sorry to say your absolutely clueless!

17.) 17 Sep 2018 21:06:40
Anyone else noticed 6counties posts are a tad strange?



11 Sep 2018 14:32:28
I watched a very ordinary Scotland team beat a very poor Albanian team last night. Only Robertson, McGregor and Tierney looked international class. Naismith was OK but the national team needs more quality. Where have all the Rangers' Scottish internationalists gone?


1.) 11 Sep 2018 18:32:38
Naismith was outstanding. Don't like him for what he done but that was like the old naisy, best player on the park by a mile last night.

2.) 11 Sep 2018 22:18:39
Rangers only have 2 Scots in their starting 11 and one played last night and one on Friday. Would love to see us have more Scottish talent and the likes of McCorrie (x2), Rudden, Wilson etc. will hopefully pull on royal and dark blue in years to come.

3.) 12 Sep 2018 07:43:23
To have more Rangers players playing for Scotland they have to earn a place Apart from McGregor and Jack the rest aren't good enough the now It is as simple as that McCrorie doesn't get a starting berth at Rangers, therefore would be lucky to make the Scotland bench the now As crap as they are!

4.) 12 Sep 2018 14:42:43
I would easily welcome Naismith bk he always runs amock way brunaldo.



11 Sep 2018 12:40:10
Sorry, but just for fun, subject to injuries here are two Gers teams. Question is would the second team be strong enough to win SPL games while the first team play Europa League games?

McGregor; Tavernier, Goldson, Katic, Barisic; Jack, Arfield, Couilbaly, Ejaria, Kent, Morelos

Foderingham; Flanagan, Worrall, McCrorie, Wallace; Candeias, Halliday, Dorrans, Rossiter; Lafferty, Grezda.


1.) 11 Sep 2018 13:13:58
We need a team that can beat Celtic.

2.) 11 Sep 2018 13:15:54
A good post. I don't think we bought Grezda to be a team 2 player. Seems to be very highly rated. McAuley would be in it and I have my doubts Wallace will play for us again. It's generally not a wise move to take your employer to a tribunal or court and expect all to be well.

3.) 11 Sep 2018 13:24:07
Not a chance. Best team always with one or two minor changes.

4.) 11 Sep 2018 14:38:16
we need strongest team to win on all fronts, no silly b team. strongest eleven every week. with one or two rotated. if we are to challenge for the league and cup competitions,

5.) 11 Sep 2018 18:34:13
Are you even London jock if you don’t write London jock at the end. who is this imposter?

6.) 11 Sep 2018 21:27:59
Personally I reckon that the second team would struggle to finish top three! We need to field our top eleven every game and we need a strong bench every game!



11 Sep 2018 12:30:32
We have a great chance to build momentum with league games coming up against Dundee, St. Johnstone and Livingston. I know we have the Europa League group games starting too later this month but if we can pick up 9 points out of 9 from these three league games then we'll be in better shape. Worry is injuries and a strong enough squad to compete on both fronts over next few weeks.


1.) 11 Sep 2018 13:11:12
Think Worrall would need to play if terms of his loan are true as you say injuries are worry in terms of depth of talent.

2.) 11 Sep 2018 14:55:16
Great point Doiger, feel a bit optimistic with next 3 games and the boss will have us up for them🇬🇧.

3.) 11 Sep 2018 15:14:37
After next free games in league we r then home to hearts and killie, so I'm looking for 15 points.

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.

Crawl back under your rock on the dark side and stay with the unwashed. I'd worry more about an away goal conceded to Roseberg if I were you.

Is Garner still playing for Ipswich Town? I know Waghorn has been transferred but we could do worse than get Garner back alongside Morelos and Sadiq.

Stop knocking Halliday. He is a bluenose through and through and will die for the jersey. Dorrans, like Rossiter, is good but is rarely fit!

Bruised Bear. Jack may have made a slip that led to the goal but he ran from 50 yards out before scoring, but I was wrong, Scotland were 3-0 down at the time and well beaten. I didn't even listen to the Sportscene 'pundits' Stewart and Thompson who never have a good word to say about anything Rangers-related.
