Afternoon chaps,

Does anybody know if Barisic IS cup tied for the group stages .


I am a little concerned about the lack of goals from our midfielders . I think Murphy and Coulibaly have one each but nothing from Candeis, Arfield, Kent, Jack, Ejaria, Middleton, Mcrorie. I know some of these have had limited minutes but at the moment we are relying on Tav, Goldson and Morelos. If Morelos get injured / suspended or form loss I can't see where the goals are coming from.


1.) 24 Aug 2018 14:13:13
Maybe if he gets injured or suspended (more likely) then the player who takes his place will score from the chances we create. That's their job, although it doesn't matter who scores as long as it's us. It is often easier for people making runs from very deep to score as the attentions of defenders are concentrated on the main strikers and attackers.

2.) 24 Aug 2018 14:36:44
Re Middleton getting game time I think you can see the lad has confidence to make things happen, it might be a good idea to give him 60mins. then bring on Ryan Kent to see how it works out. His age shouldn't be an issue- Rooney, Dalglish, DJ.
Some of our players in the past looked promising, Walsh, Aird, Gallacher etc. but this lad is the real deal IMO.
For some older fans he reminds me of Alex Scott who, s main asset was his speed to go past full backs and get a cross in.

3.) 24 Aug 2018 14:46:09
Middleton is not ready.

Last night he was a one trick pony who bombed up the wing to the byeline. Great crosses etc but as soon as they figured him out he went quiet.

Kent did plenty to justify his starting place.

4.) 24 Aug 2018 14:48:01
“Bud” Middleton on the wing.

5.) 24 Aug 2018 15:25:04
"Lack of goals from our midfielders", - and yet Windass got so much grief. Where are his goals being replaced from?

6.) 24 Aug 2018 15:38:42
Struth72 we're still scoring, but far more importantly we've fixed the leaks first. Now we can turn the tap full on as the season progresses.

7.) 24 Aug 2018 15:42:10
Seems other guys think your not a gers fan. you banned me a while ago for absolutely nothing. You said " I have'nt seen YOU play yet" Who is YOU? . I think you run a few fans sites.

{Ed001's Note - If you got banned it was clearly for a reason and the fact I run the whole set of football-rumours sites is not a secret. What is your point? That you have only just realised after 17 years of the football-rumours sites that I am not a Rangers fan, even though it has been on my profile the whole time who I support? Ed039 is the Rangers fan.}

8.) 24 Aug 2018 17:07:54
DK17 to be fair Kent did a lot of huffing and puffing, he puts in effort he gets back and makes challenges, but I will disagree with you on Middleton, Kent had 60-70 mins and didn't really produce anything, Middleton was on for 15 mins and beat his man 3 or 4 times. Also I Kent hasn't had a single goal or assist in all of his performances so far (I don't think) so in that respect I am not overly impressed by him, I believe Middleton with a run in the team would get assists and maybe some goals but that's just my opinion mate, I don't think Kent's a bad player but he is going to have to produce some end product soon.

9.) 24 Aug 2018 17:45:17
Huntywallsend my understanding if we make group stages Barasic is then free to play it's only the qualifiers he's cup tied for.



25 Jul 2018 12:50:04
Hi All,
anybody confirm when the Transfer window shuts for Scotland . ? The English one is looming.


1.) 25 Jul 2018 13:05:40
August 31.

ARE WE A SELLING CLUB? It is annoying to see the amount of money our club loses out on getting rid of players who are not good enough. The club in my view hide this . one example is MOH. Paid around half a Mill for him
What did we get from Melbourne? Nobody has said.
We paid 250k roughly for Windass and for me any offers north of 1.5 million we should grab it. Its good business and windass won't be in starting 11. We as a club need to be cuter in thd way we do our business. We can't keep heammoraging money the way we have
Thoughtz guys?


1.) 24 Jun 2018 08:14:39
agree to an extent hunty

i think our recruitment jas been the issue last few years and i mean managers and players

we can’t have players like herrera pena MoH and halliday at our club regardless what we paid or what offers we get as they are not good enough in my opinion and that's that

i think club is now being run properly off park and we are trying to build and prudence dictates if crazy offers come in for morelos wes windass tav we will take the money as all clubs are selling clubs if offer is right

but 1.5 for windass ain’t going to happen. we have to trust board and manager to put a value on a player and if he can help us build back to to top he stays

but if someone bids funny money he goes - sorry hunty that’s just a reality and i'm ok with that

2.) 24 Jun 2018 09:00:06
1.5 million is nowhere near enough for josh in todays market this is a big season for him if he can build on his 17 goals he got last season then he will be a big asset to us let's see how he does under stevie gs stewardship this season.

3.) 24 Jun 2018 11:02:32
I think if an offer of 3-4 million comes in windass he will be sold. He has potential and could possibly blossom under Gerrard but I would personally selll him for that it’s good business and you could get a replacement for that money.

4.) 24 Jun 2018 11:30:06
Yes we are a selling club, windass is worth more than 1.5 mil no doubt about it. The reason why we are letting players go cheaper if you like is because 1) we paid way over the top for them to begin with and no club will give us what we paid. Pena herrera cardoso gardner are all examples of this. 2) these players are earning a wage at us that they could not get else where. In order to create funds for gerrard we accept lower offers to get this dross off the wage bill and clean up the mess from previous managers. In fairness these lower offers represent a truer value of the player, as we all know when rangers go for a player the price goes up. Anyway there is not a hope in hell that we will recoup anywhere near the 5mil approx that we paid for herrera pena. Imagine what gerrard could do with another 5mil. Gerrard is not daft, knows the game and players value so the days of clubs ripping us off for their players are over. A player would cause a fuss at his club if he knew that gerrard and the famous wanted him👍

5.) 24 Jun 2018 11:41:00
First post said windass won't be in starting 11. How do you know that. None of us know . I'm not a huge fan of windass because he dissapears but that could be lack of fitness which is getting knocked out of him as we speak. Time will tell .

6.) 24 Jun 2018 11:58:25
Time will tell cf bear but I don't think windass will be a starter either. I think better players will be signed in the coming weeks. If we get a bid around the 3.5 4mil mark then windass will be away. Gerrard would use that kind of money wisely. Same with tav by the way, I think that's why flanagan was bought. The club are anticipating bids for tav and again anything around the 3.5 4 mil mark and tav will be away. Just my opinion.

7.) 24 Jun 2018 14:14:03
great posts coldo, yes we are a selling club, simple reason we buy with potential to sell on. we can't compete with the money here in england until that's addressed that's how we operate. windass is a luxury we can't afford, i'd snatch your hand at 3mil plus. get rid of dross not performing sitting in stands stealing a wage, replace with better standard of player, we still need another cb, tough tackling centre mid, striker. i'd take skirtel, jedineck, origi, ings, . london jock



03 Jun 2018 15:30:52
Press reports today suggest that SG wants to keep windass. If its correct i am really disapointed. He is not good enough. We badly need centre backs and cover at fiull back as well as striker. Clubs in england want him. Take the money! Anything over 1million to reconfigure the squad.
Windass is one of the most anonymouz players i have seen and if SG can't see that ( i am sure he has been watching games files) then its worrying.


1.) 03 Jun 2018 15:56:17
Im sure Steven Gerrard is just being kind regarding Windass, i think he will be sold.

2.) 03 Jun 2018 16:15:51
At the moment it seems the majority of our support want rid of Windass, Tav and Morelas. Those three were probably involved in around 75% of our goals last season. Why should we be looking to sell on these players if they were that important. We should be trying to enhance the rest of our squad and see what these guys can do with a better team around them, so we are less reliant on the three.
I think Morelas and Windass have potential to be top players for us. I like Tav but hopefully with a stronger centre of the midfield and defence, we will be less exposed when he goes forward.

3.) 03 Jun 2018 17:08:03
Got to agree that Windass should be sold as he is simply not good enough for Rangers FC

4.) 03 Jun 2018 17:09:35
If true that Stevie-G wants to keep Tav, Windass, and Foderingham then I am disappointed in our new manager on this.

Tav is a hopeless defender and cost the team many goals past two seasons as teams exploited his defensive position.

Windass is a selfish player and not a team player and goes missing in games, also to this day I think he still has to win any headers he jumps for. (loses them all)

Foderingham is a good shot stopper from close range, but hopeless in all other aspects of being a top goakeeper.
Im fed up watching Foderingham's Hollywood dives when the ball still goes in the net.

Im hopefull like the rest of us but think Stevie-G has got these 3 wrong.
There is better players out there than these three magic hat signings.

5.) 03 Jun 2018 17:37:50
Stop living in the past
This is your future

6.) 03 Jun 2018 17:43:09
With all due respect ladies, but where and when did you all do your coaching badges? My god 3 days in the job and already the moonhowlers are out in full force.
Firstly Tavernier was our best player last season. Improved defensively and dynamite going forward.
Windass deserves a chance a chance under Gerrard. One of our top scorers and assists. F me if we had Messi and Bale playing for us you would all find fault in them🙄
Gerrard could also be double bluffing. By saying they are in his plans means clubs will have to pay full bhoona for them rather than a paltry fee to get them off the books. How about we all wait how everyone performed before judging . eh! 🤦‍♂️

7.) 03 Jun 2018 18:03:21
I'll trust the managers judgment.

8.) 03 Jun 2018 18:10:59
Thts exactly wht they snd like a bunch of auld moany oap's :)

9.) 03 Jun 2018 18:13:39
Windass despite going missing in games has still scored many goals and many assists so if Gerrard can get more out of him why should we sell unless megabucks offer last season we were top scoring team its the defence that needs big money spent .

10.) 03 Jun 2018 18:51:20
Honest all yous folk trying to witch hunt windass tav and morelos must be tims or bots our three most important players and you want them out what wierdos min

11.) 03 Jun 2018 19:13:33
Gman, why should we sell Windass you ask? i'd imagine Gerrard will have to sell quiet a few players to fund his new team. There is certainly no sign of the 6 million which is, according to King going to be made available this month due to a new share issue.

12.) 03 Jun 2018 20:20:28
Great post colster couldn't agree more👍

13.) 03 Jun 2018 20:29:39
For all I'm not keen on windass, if sg thinks he can work with him, that's good enough for me.

There's plenty to be moving on before windass and tav, to free up wages.

It's early days, but I like the level of player we're linked with. We'll see the balance between youth and experience and permanent and loan soon enough.

Even keeping our better players from last year, the general make up of our team should be youthful. It's about landing those key players now.

Let's go.

14.) 03 Jun 2018 21:22:33
Mols Some of our fans just haven't a Scooby!
For a start we might just have to go with what we have as it might be hard to shift some of the deadwood. If taking a few Liverpool loans to beef up the squad with more quality then so be it.
I think we have to trust the management team as I think they may just be a little bit more qualified than us😁

15.) 03 Jun 2018 22:15:27

Great post too much negativity even before the season starts.
Morelos, Windass, and Tav were Rangers top scorers in the Premiership. Does that not answer why SG wants to keep them?



13 May 2018 17:29:55
Curtain down chaps!
Assessment of season?
Well given the disaster that was caixhana and the bulk of his signingz coupled with a run of injuries i think there has been progress albeit small.
Scored 20 more goals. Got 3 more points. gap with celtic reduced from 39 points to 12. Gap with aberdeen down from 9 to 3
Small steps . 2 good centre halfs wil make a huge difference
All the best.


1.) 13 May 2018 18:10:45
The season has been awful and I’m glad it’s over. We need more than just 2 centre halves and need yet another clearout

Steven DAVIS is worth 18 months. On a bad day he is better than Ejaria and Coulibaly. On a wider note if its true that these loaners are guaranteed a certain number of games what on earth do the club ( gerard) expect. Most of their performances and you can bring Kent and Worrall into this have been rank ( yes they have had the odd good game) . What is this saying to Katic, Mcrorie and others who are our players and are being pushed out because others are GUARANTEED games. Not a good way to conduct business for me.

Hi Guys,
I am always interested in looking at match stats after a game . Last season there was a recurring theme in that even in a lot of games that we didn't win ( lose and draw) together with the games we did win our goal attempts to attempts on target was woeful .
In many instances the opposition were restricted to generally a third of the attempts but their conversion rate was much higher.

Having watched the Euro games on TV the same thing is happening and its called lack of quality in and around the box.

I want to be positive ( god I pray for better) but middle to front we need more quality . That's the difference between winning and losing at the top level.
SG commented that Windass had worked his socks off . Strangely that's what I would call a minimum requirement. If we persist with the current front line we will pay the price.

Comment made that SG not looking for a striker!
can you imagine any team only having 2 recognised strikers on the books?
If I were him it would be a priority. Cause at the moment Morelos and Windass ( I know he is not a recognised striker at moment ) cannot hit a barn door.

Totally agree deanobear! . Time and agiain established players come up from england and can't hack it. I now live in newcastle and its the same from english fans. They complety hunderate the game in scotland.
Remember Barton stating he would be best player in scotland. that's the mentality. We need a good mix of experiance of our league with a cojple of young uns with potential.

If MOH is on 5k a week ( probably around that figure ) if he has 2 years left on his deal then he is due £500k wages. Neither Motherwell or St Johnstone are likely to pay more than £1.5k a week in wages. Therefore MOH is then ( over the 2 years) £350k short in wages so he ain't going to go. Simple answer is accept £100k for him and use that as part of a pay off. by my reckoning that costs the club £250k. Or keep him for 2 years at a cost of £500k.
Financial realities chaps!
That's nothing wait till Alves, Cardoso and Pena negotiations kick in .
Much of the above is my bad feelings about the kid from Brighton . He is unproven . Possibly a fitness disaster in waiting and there is talk of a £3 mill fee and 20k a week in wages. Huge gamble. Not worth the risk in my view

regards to you all

I HAVE BEEN CHECKING THE Stats and in terms of Assists the figures are appalling for Kent, Ejaria, Coulibaly and Candeis. There goal tally is pretty underwhelming as well. If you are in Midfield ( a little leeway given to Defensive Midfielders) if you are not creating for your strikers or scoring yourself then something isn't right.

Now I am no huge fan of Scott Allan but he can pass a ball . So he or someone of his ilk is desperately required because the last few games have been torture.

Tav has to stop taking corners and dead ball free kicks . ( he can have the penalties because yesterday was absolutely dreadful.

Whichever way you cut it Windass was a mainstay in a side that finished behind Aberdeen and 3 points ahead of Hibs. So if you want to be third stick with Windass. Yes he has qualities BUT not enough for us to take us up a groove. He is 24 now and I am tired of Pollsters stating he has potential.

Parky. The league is stronger hibs took 7 points of celtic. So in my view in a stronger league we have more points and celtiic considerably less . !
