Apparently Lafferty cost just short of 700 grand. 450 given to the press for a couple of ambiguous reasons.

Why they didn't just state that it was an undisclosed fee I don"t know.

Guy that told me is usually bang on.

Make no mistake, that was a decent Motherwell team and by far and away bigger and stronger than most teams we will play. They were up for it big time.

Rangers were a bit under par but still got a draw despite being behind twice. Not the best performance by a long way but you can't be at your best in every game. Goldson and a couple of others struggled but will put it behind them and crack on. A harsh and annoying way to lose points but forget it and move on.

Not all doom and gloom and still undefeated. Two BIG games up next.

Onwards and upwards.

1.) 26 Aug 2018 20:19:33
JFC, careful now, go steady. You're in grave danger of talking sense here, which isn't always appreciated by the Negative Loyal.

2.) 27 Aug 2018 06:42:45
A decent motherwell team? Hadnt scored a goal before yesterday, they will be a bottom 6 side this season.



23 Aug 2018 21:14:06
65 mins in and hands down Ejaria's best game.

Maybe some folk will get off his back. He is quality.

1.) 23 Aug 2018 21:38:50
Embellished by Peter Lovenkrandts man of the match.

2.) 23 Aug 2018 21:44:33
Is putin threatening the officials , 2 stonewall penalties and he pulls it back 5 seconds later for a so called hand ball, unbelievable jeff.

3.) 23 Aug 2018 21:46:53
I doubt that JFC!

Some folk on here need to have their fix of slagging off one of our players. Morelos, Halliday and now Ejaria are shoving those opinions down their throats but few are able to say the6 might have been wrong.

Support the team and were on the way.

4.) 23 Aug 2018 21:47:37
He’s growing in confidence and clearly learning
Was really pleased with Middleton when he’s came on tonight as well

Annoyed we couldn’t break them down for more than one goal.

5.) 23 Aug 2018 21:48:51
I've not criticised but I have said I was worried about his decision making at times but got to agree he was absolutely outstanding tonight easily his best game in a rangers top by far.

6.) 23 Aug 2018 21:50:27
Ejaria was outstanding tonight. Creative, powerful and full of running. don't normally talk about refs, that ref though was honking. Should have had at least one pen.

7.) 23 Aug 2018 21:51:58
Class tonight, won tackles, made passes, might even at a long shot got a penalty.
Just ahead of Goldson for me for MOM.

8.) 23 Aug 2018 21:52:10
Agree JFC Ejarias best game. he's wanting on the ball all the time. You can see why SG brung him here.

9.) 23 Aug 2018 21:58:11
The lad is a class act. Bit we all knew that already, didn't we?

10.) 23 Aug 2018 22:13:37
I thought he was Man of the Match tonight and also thought Kent had a good game.

11.) 23 Aug 2018 23:05:24
Just got in from the game. Agree with most of the comments made previously. Ref was definitely on the Ruskies payroll. most fouls I've ever seen without a card being shown! Give wee Middleton a start on Sunday, I'd say, along with big Laff. Didn't see much to worry us tonight, just need to replicate earlier away performances to see us through. # let's go.



11 Feb 2018 03:19:13
Murty has to be given a permanent contract in May. If not only GvB or FdB has to be given the job ASAP. On a budget there cannot be better than Murty. If we have dollars to burn then Frank or Gio. I defy anybody to disagree.

1.) 11 Feb 2018 06:14:40
Tell me you're kidding jfc Murty is the ideal man, if we are not bothered about winning at Ibrox that is.

2.) 11 Feb 2018 07:08:16
Said all along that Gio v B would be my no.1 choice but he may be ungettable, it’s one thing paying the man £1-£2M per year I think we could stretch to that for the right man but for someone like him to make a move to us right now from a relatively comfortable position where he is then he would be looking for sizeable budgets for players and players wages to overhaul the squad.

I’m 100% behind Murty and hope that he goes on to win over the majority however if it doesn’t work out and we look elsewhere come the end of the season then Gio would be a fantastic appointment!

3.) 11 Feb 2018 09:03:03
Aww the blue bells are blue

4.) 11 Feb 2018 09:17:23
Lets see where we end up at the end of the season but deciding if murty is the answer. Steve Clarke at Kilmarnock shows what a decent coach/ manager can do.

5.) 11 Feb 2018 09:43:10
My opinion, if murty can do what he has done on a budget I for one would Love to see what he can do with funds

6.) 11 Feb 2018 10:57:28
Totaly agree with you dazrfc86. Give Murty a decent budget next transfer window then judge him. To many people on here are quick to criticise him. Yes he was our youth coach and was asked to step up, now he's was never going to knock that back as he may never have the chance again. Good luck Graham Murty.

7.) 11 Feb 2018 11:12:30
I like murty but he's not experienced enough he takes to long to make changes in a match when it's not working not ruthless enough to make changes at half time or even before. i'd be happy with Clarke or O'Neil

8.) 11 Feb 2018 12:03:54
What has murty done exactly? Beating the sheep and drawing against c*ltic was great but what about the games against Kilmarnock, Hamilton, Dundee, hibs? If we get second, fine give murty a rolling contract. Anything else then it's a no from me

9.) 11 Feb 2018 13:47:16
Not winning at girls isn't because of murt y it's more to do with the fans that about abuse at our Own players

10.) 11 Feb 2018 14:49:19
How can Murty get job, we r terrible. This game has disaster all over it

11.) 11 Feb 2018 17:36:02
Hi Stirling, can you explain your quote " THIS GAME HAS DISASTER ALL OVER IT "?

12.) 11 Feb 2018 19:08:46
@goalie - I think you will find it was jboy17 that quoted that lol

13.) 11 Feb 2018 19:09:40
talking about another manager while we have one is as good as expecting your team to fail . means diff things to diff people i guess. murty is the man for me. some gers fans are worse than the other side

14.) 11 Feb 2018 19:36:30
Kennyd9, you are indeed correct. My apologies my friend.

15.) 11 Feb 2018 21:03:50
Murty might well become a success, I hope he is but let's just wait and see how the season goes before judging him a success?

16.) 11 Feb 2018 23:25:43
He's been given the job till the end of the season. Can we at least wait till then before passing judgement! In the meantime let's get behind him! Windass and Morelos may well be gone in the summer too but at the moment they are two of our best forwards who need our support.

17.) 11 Feb 2018 23:57:54
FDB is hopeless.

18.) 12 Feb 2018 00:02:35
If he wins the Scottish Cup, give him the job.

19.) 12 Feb 2018 13:19:32
Under Murty we look a million times better than we did under Pedro, I'd like to see Murty get the job personally, twice now he has took the reigns when we were in serious trouble and in circumstances where nobody else would have wanted to touch us, in my opinion Murty comes across well in interviews, seems to have the dressing room behind him and needs thanking massively for helping out our magnificent football club in our hour of need (something for which I will be forever greatful) 🔵⚪🔴



06 May 2016 19:05:18
While most people would agree that it is horrible to see the demise, financial or otherwise, of a football club I think we a can all agree that Dundee United are an exception.

The way that Thompson acted when we had our brief hiccup was scandalous. This was a man who didn't even want Rangers to be able to play in the bottom division,

Now four years on, We are back in the Premier League, in a Scottish Cup final;possible Europa League next season and the future looking bright.

They on the other hand have just sacked 22 players, managerless and are the price of a pint away from administration.

I distinctly remember at the time saying this will come back to bite some people and that is exactly what has happened.


1.) 06 May 2016 22:10:53
Good to see that world famous humility is back.

2.) 06 May 2016 21:19:19
Well said 100% correct thompson is a waste of space had his own agenda against us backfired big time.

3.) 06 May 2016 22:38:52
JFC, absolutely spot on mate!

Now, how's this for an idea!? We buy the Arabs for peanuts, (not what that snake in the grass Thompson reckons they are worth! ) and send all our young, up and coming talent there on loan, gaining first team football, whilst gelling as a team, in a half decent league! ( let's face it, it's been more entertaining than the premier league this year!

Thus, carrying on the tradition of United being a feeder club, but this time around it would be benefitting us rather than the manky mob!?

Any thoughts on this?

Don't worry lads, I haven't lost the plot, it is the banter page after all! 👍🏻😂.

4.) 06 May 2016 23:37:28
Poetic: What do you expect? Thompson was a shark who took glee in our demise and wanted more of our blood. Humility doesn't come into it.

5.) 07 May 2016 04:29:51
Don't know about humility being back but its nice to see you back. Any particular reason for your hiatus for the last couple of weeks?

6.) 07 May 2016 07:04:16
Aye it is extremely difficult to be sympathetic when you consider how much enjoyment Thompson took out of our club's plight. Wonder if the patient would have reacted had it been his club in our predicament.

7.) 07 May 2016 07:53:45
I agree with posts I, e Thompson but its a sad day when
one of our bigger clubs are about to go under
some talk about creating bigger leagues we don't have enough decent teams in Scotland to create more than one league
this is only highlighted by the signing of a Liverpool
youth player for 25ok as great and before every one starts
I know you have don't to spend big to get good players.

8.) 07 May 2016 07:55:39
Even before all the stuff that him and Dundee utd were rats. Feel sorry for the players not their fault but he's sold every descent player at the club then sacked the manager lol. His father was the same.

9.) 07 May 2016 09:24:00
Jfc- Brief hiccup, Hahahahahaha

Comedy Gold.

10.) 07 May 2016 10:30:34
Poetic. The most obsessed by miles.

11.) 07 May 2016 10:39:37
321ron, no mate we should let them fester away mate, do unto otheers comes to mind, or as ma wee granny would say, hell slap it into them.

12.) 07 May 2016 10:42:54
It is a brief hiccup in our long illustrious history tbh.

13.) 07 May 2016 10:44:06
Where was he in the aftermath of his club's exit from the cup? A bit like Tommy42. Hmmmmm.

14.) 07 May 2016 13:23:38

Alot of people took glee (rightly or wrongly) in your demise. Personally, I take no pleasure in a number of people being made unemployed - especially in this financial climate. I don't see why you should. I fail to see what it gets you. Just my opinion.


I've been around. And I was certainly around in the aftermath of our defeat, a few guys on here will testify to that. I came on, took my licks and gave you all the credit in the world. To be honest, it's been mostly transfer talk from there on out.


No need to wonder. I can answer that. If my club was in your predicament, I'd be more concerned with what was/ is going on behind my own doors, than the fact that some people were taking glee in it. As I said above, I take no joy in anyone being made unemployed in a country were foodbanks are becoming more and more prevalent. The fact is, and this won't be popular I'm sure, this whole revenge type talk is exactly why a demographic took glee in your demise. I don't say that lightly. My best friend is a Rangers man, and season book holder, and the goings on broke his heart. I empathize. I also empathize with all the businesses that suffered and/ or went under because of what was going on at Ibrox. Again, it comes back to humility. The team has down well, especially this year (so credit to that) but when your first instinctupon success is to say:


Etc, you'll see why I think it's a little insensitive, and counter productive. You are starting as you mean to go on - aggressively. And that's fine - just don't be surprised when people then take glee in your demise.

Each to their own I suppose.

Additionally, if your last comment about "where was he? " is in relation to me, see above. I was here, on the Sunday night and a few days later giving Rangers credit and taking the hits.


In a thread about another team, you mention I'm obsessed. In the same thread, another poster mentions I haven't been on the board for a while. I'll let that percolate with you until you see the error of your statement.

15.) 07 May 2016 14:19:10
Keep it going poetic, it is funny, but not in the way you think. xx.

16.) 07 May 2016 14:31:10
If only we lived in a perfect world poetic. Everything you've said could be levelled at all the teams (including yours, in fact mainly yours) who laughed at our demise.
I think you'll find its out overwhelming success rather than our attitudes that brings on the hatred, all the most successful teams are treated like this.
I think after all the jokes and wild statements flung at our club over the last 4 years we are more than entitled to laugh at the likes of Dundee Utd and you's who were the most vocal against us. This is not revenge, it's Karma!

17.) 07 May 2016 17:05:37
Common sense and articulate well reasoned conversation will only get you so far I see.

As I said before, each to their own.

18.) 07 May 2016 17:55:53
Poetic: Difference is they are relegated, they ain't going to lose livelihoods anywhere at the club.

19.) 07 May 2016 18:05:54
Poetic: I don't get what you don't get, it's only a natural reaction after the way he conducted himself during that time.

20.) 07 May 2016 18:18:40

I really don't want to get into a debate about this. Half of you think I'm at the wind up, the other half don't agree. Fine. That's your privilege.

One thing though, my initial response was to comments such as this:

"They [have just] sacked 22 players, [are] manager-less and are the price of a pint away from administration. "

I'm pretty sure that would not only suggest people losing their jobs/ livelihoods, but also that you (the general you) are taking delight in it. That was my original point of contention.

But like I said, I don't want to get into a debate about this.

21.) 07 May 2016 18:35:41
Poetic: You are doing your best to get into a debate then, I know nothing of anyone losing jobs, I simply found them getting relegated rather amusing after all the stuff he threw at us, so stop jumping the gun thinking you know what we are all thinking.

22.) 07 May 2016 19:13:26
Does anyone else think that thepatheticpatient is a a closet United fan? I know they are their feeder club but this really has touched a nerve.

For someone claiming not to get into a debate, he isn't half getting into a debate about it.

If he can't see why we are laughing at United then he that makes it even funnier.

Like Cullin72 said, funny but not in the way you think.

23.) 07 May 2016 19:45:44
Name calling? Check.

Ignoring actual points made? Check.

Misconstruing original point? Check.

Questioning allegiance? Check.


24.) 07 May 2016 20:04:18
On the wrong teams forum - check

Doesn't know when to shut up - check

Pointless posts trying to justify himself - check

Everyone laughing at him - check.

25.) 07 May 2016 22:34:06
I don't think you know what some of those words mean. I'm assuming as much - it's either that or your deliberately making mistakes. Either or. Good luck to you.



18 Mar 2016 14:06:40
With regards to next month's semi final, do people genuinely believe that Rangers can win? Sure, its easy to say that we have come a long way in a short space of time (which we have) and that they are not playing too well at the moment (which is also true) but the other factors and the multiple variables are going to make this game fascinating.

Celtic will be favourites; and rightly so. They are the current champions, the best team in the country and man for man on paper should be untouchable.

However, they are under pressure, big time. Not the best form from a team which has been more or less together for a couple of seasons at the very least;a manager who's job is being brought into question (rightly or wrongly) ;only one recognised striker, who admittedly is having a blinder at the moment, though lose him and what happens then? and maybe most importantly of all, a possible superiority complex which as we all know can be self devastating.

Will Rangers win? Let's hope so, I would say as a rough estimate its 60-40 in their favour.

Can Rangers win? You better believe it!

Warburton is a better manager than Deila (my opinion and yes he hasn't won anything yet but who do you think they would rather have in charge? ) .

Rangers currently, on their day, could beat any team in Scotland. I will caveat that statement with saying that if Rangers play the way we did against Dundee and Celtic play the way they have in certain games this season then we have a real chance to turn them over.

Waghorn would be a massive boost for us and a boost for them if he doesn't play, but there are others who can perform to the same standard in his stead.

Wallace and Tavenier have had good seasons so far and hopefully this can be replicated in this game.

My one worry is that our defence, and I am particularly talking about central defence, hasn't come up against a team with their strength, or a player of Griffiths' form and ability. Nulifying that should be a priority (though I doubt The Hat needs MY advice) .

Another factor is that there will be probably more Old Firm debutants on either side than in any game I can remember (thats a long time by the way) .

I cannot wait.

1.) 18 Mar 2016 16:05:11
Jfc, I pray Rangers will win, but I very much doubt it, they will be so much fired up they will come flying at us from minute one, , commons will be relishing this game, as will the griffmonster and broony the Ned, int'l be difficult for Rangers young players to cope with what will be an onslaught,

Maybe if WE dominate early play it may be different, I hope so, far too many on here who literally don't understand the difference in quality that money buys, its simple really, Rangers play some beautiful football, and may just be even better than we have seen, but they won't, no matter what some will have you believe have come across a side as, admittedly in a poor season, who have regularly played in European games and top league games, the pace will be ferocious, so let's just hope Warns has them ready for the onslaught, I just worry, a lot, bout the defences ability to cope with commons, griffiths, and probably Roberts, with Delia throwing button and that big donkey from man city into every corner kick, can Wilson deal with that? I hope so

2.) 18 Mar 2016 16:43:04
Tomtom, I agree we might be underdogs and have said many times that this will be a hard game. But this ferocious pace from top SPL games and european games? And expect an onslaught? Yes they will be favourites and have two or three really good players but your statements above are just nonsense. Not once this season have celtic played with a ferocious onslaught. Well maybe 9-0 v hamilton, but we are better than hamilton. This will be a close tight game. There players bar two or three are p! $$ poor. They don't fancy this.

3.) 18 Mar 2016 16:55:23
Ferocious onslaught! A thing that can't be switched on and off. Where was their ferocious onslaught when they were trying to get into the CL group stage or when they were placed in a Europa League group that everybody said they would easily qualify from? Where was this ferocious onslaught in their last cup semi final? Some people have just no idea.

4.) 18 Mar 2016 17:22:45
Brown is a workhorse and Celtic too his boots, I like to see that in players, but he ain't the most skilful or quickest of players. If wee McKay goes past him a couple of times early on Brown may be in for an early bath. In all seriousness look at the Celtic team How many are straight out and out team players? I think that's part of their problem to many paying for wages and not the team. I still see them winning and agree Griff could be the difference. Hope I'm wrong.

5.) 18 Mar 2016 17:34:35
They should win and that's why the pressure is on them. They are the poorest celtic team since john barnes era. We must be at the very top of our game no doubt, but they are there for the taking.

6.) 18 Mar 2016 17:14:41
Rangers on there day can beat anybody in scotland. but will it be our day. i hope so.

The one thing that we have in Britain is a lot of grass due to our weather. Its ridiculous that in this day and age we are playing on artificial pitches for top league matches.

Don't give me the 'wee teams cannot afford grass' crap. Most teams manage it.

Thats Murphy out for a year and Waghorn? a few years ago on some astrobrick pitch took a similar one.

They should be outlawed.

When Murray famously said 'For every fiver C#^%ic spend I will spend a tenner' what he meant was Lloyds Bank will spend a tenner. Those years were worth it though.

Not sure going back to him would be the way ahead now though.

As bad a performance as you will see this season.

There were 4 consecutive fouls on Rangers players then Jack goes in and WINS THE BALL in the same passage of play and is booked.

And when are we going to abolish this ridiculous law of 'over celebrating'? You can elbow someone in the jaw and it carries the same punishment as high fiving your fans when you score.

The Leicester boy at the weekend taking his shirt off highlights how ridiculous this rule is.

Some people here must person trolls, at the wind up or just thicker than a whale omelette.

There have been a couple of bad results, mist notably Livingston, but that game aside there have not been too many bad performances. Two games a week over a period of time, you are bound to be under par now and again.

And equally important, this season is as strong in terms of amount of decent, improved teams. Look at the Sheeo's position now anf the end of last season as a marker.

We will be there or thereabouts at the end od the season.
