Does anyone know if Jordan Rossi ter is back in training yet. He was supposed to be a few days away from fitness according to MW before the break. I ask because I think that the young Yank and Toral will be regular starters so Holty and probably Tav will be benched which I think is fine (Hodson deserves to return at RB) but if Rossi ter is still not ready (when will he be then! ) that means Andy the badge kisser will likely keep his place which to my mind is barely deserved as he continues to show he is no DM- also seeing that Crooks is being punted on loan to Scunthorpe- actually feel sorry for that lad, yes he was poor v. Hearts but why bring him in and not play him in his best position. Halli day has had quite poor to anonymous games in that role but as folk say on here, one of the"undroppables". Anyway rant over, please get fit soon, Jordan!

hallway is a true blue but best player for each position and rosier is better.

Halliday is becoming the "new Big Jig"! A Rangers man through and through that will play anywhere for Rangers. Unfortunately he is not and never will be a Holding midfield player or a defensive midfield player, nor does he come close.

A fit Rossiter would, I believe be a significant player for Rangers and would provide more support for the defence while adding exactly what i'd needed for the midfield.

Unfortunately I do not believe that we all see him back in the team at the beginning of February although if it means we will have him next season then I am happy that he is given as long as necessary to get fully match fit!

Iv not got a clue what's happ with Young rossiter, one thing I do know is the wee man is pure gutted and is desperate to play

Got to say if the rumours linking us to Teixeira or suggesting Mere illes as an option have any foundation I'll be disappointed. Coming from a family of Liverpool supporters I can't remember being impressed by either of them when I saw them play.

Id take a goalscoring striker never mind a goalscoring midfielder.

2.) 02 Dec 2016 13:50:41
don't know much about them to be honest.

3.) 02 Dec 2016 14:52:11
Question is LivGer would you take Merieles or any of the current lot?

4.) 02 Dec 2016 16:09:15
Blue genius, suppose if Mere illes was the only option given he's played at a high level including internationally then I'd take him when compared with our current lot particularly given he is a natural defensive mid but I say again saw him play for Liverpool quite a few times and he was average at best. Hope we are looking at somebody younger and if we are buying with decent sell- on potential. Personally thought Djoum from Hearts looked a really good player the other night. If it's a loan don't know who to suggest.

5.) 03 Dec 2016 11:14:51
Need a centre half with pace and power and a proper winger to put the ball into the area not this cut-in and pass back dross.



02 Nov 2016 14:04:31
Commiserations to big Niko on the news that it's an ACL injury so that's likely it for the season. Gutted for him just when it looked like he was coming onto a game after a shaky start. Seems like a nice guy unlike the other"big name" signing. So hope the operation goes well and he comes back fighting fit and on top form for our return to European football (surely) next season.

Hi liverpool Ger, a wee question for you, if you don't mind mate. I'm taking by your name as well as being a bear, you also like liverpool mate? Tell me something, i keep thinking that the liverpool fans now have a massive love in friendship with the eastend mob, which wasn't the case in the 70's and 80's as it was then rangers/ liverpool and celtic/ Everton. Would you agree with this liverpool gers? The main reason i'm asking is my big mate supports rangers and liverpool and i keep asking him why liverpool, as they have a big friendship with celtic. Of course he completely disagrees with me and says its rangers and liverpool who's fans have the friendship. Can you shed any light on this mate and clear it up for us? Would be very grateful mate, cheers!

2.) 02 Nov 2016 15:46:43
a doubt liverpool fans give a monkeys about rangers or celtic.

Hello supercooper, my name comes from living in Liverpool for over 37 years but was born and bred a bear in sunny South Lanarkshire. My wife and her family are all Reds but there's only ever been one team for me. From my local experience would agree I've seen many more Reds with an affinity to Celtic than Rangers down here and when I go to Liverpool home games as I do now and then it's not unusual to see Liverpool/ Celtic scarves but rarely Liverpool/ Rangers. Why? Used to be thought that it was religious in that the Catholics supported Everton and Celtic and the Prods Liverpool and Rangers but don't think that holds any more. My wife and all her family are Catholics and have supported Liverpool all their lives. Anyway whatever reason Reds have for preferring the other mob more fool them is all I can say!

{Ed001's Note - Everton were originally St Domingo's Catholic Church team, so preferred Celtic. Thankfully the sectarian idiocy has mostly died out, so it no longer holds relevance there.}

4.) 02 Nov 2016 17:27:10
Cheers for that liverpool Ger and ED. My favourite team in england is newcastle utd and always has been, long before that mike ashley got his hands on them. Speak to a good few geordies quite regularly and they have no time for him also! few of the geordies i knew used to come up to hospitality at ibrox for the rangers very celtic games a good few years back. They loved it and they all supported newcastle and rangers up here. The geordies were a great bunch of guys, superbly funny! I only support glasgow rangers but like to see newcastle doing well. I have a soft spot for them!

5.) 02 Nov 2016 20:42:56
Ed, I am sorry but I have to correct you. St Doings was not a Catholic Church it was a Methodist Church. Many years ago now, when my family moved from Scotland to the North West of England, (and before my Boys were old enough to start playing football I went and watched Liverpool, Everton and Manchester City before deciding to go watch Everton on a more regular basis. Everton was the original team and Liverpool grew out of Everton. There were fans at both clubs that had an affinity with Rangers and also with Celtic although most of my friends at Goodison were of the Rangers persuasion, (more so when we signed Trevor Steven, Gary Stevens, Stuart McColl etc. ) . When I went to watch Liverpool I found that there were more supporters of the Green and Gray in the main stand but in the Kop there were more than a few that had an affinity with Rangers. For some absurd reason my youngest son developed an affinity for the reds whereas my oldest son has remained a blue, albeit that both have followed in their father's footsteps as Rangers fans. The history of both clubs is interesting and for what it is worth any suggestion that either club had any association with Catholicism couldn't be further from the truth!

{Ed001's Note - You are correct it was Methodist, not Catholic, but the club itself was synonymous with the Catholic population, who, in the main, followed the blues. It died out in Liverpool, but in the past it was the basis of Liverpool's relationship with Rangers and why Everton fans tended to relate to Celtic. It changed with Celtic fans singing YNWA initially, as most Everton fans hate it and it has resonance for Liverpool fans. With sectarianism, despite orange walks, being pretty much dead in Liverpool, the Catholic/Protestant divide has long since died out. About time it did in Scotland too, if you ask me.}

6.) 03 Nov 2016 00:18:37
Having written extensively on both clubs, I can assure you that Everton were not 'synonymous with the Catholic population'. Both clubs were founded by Big John Houlding, a businessman and prominent Orangeman, with Everton being the first, therefore founded from a Methodist church team by an Orangeman, and the Catholic population certainly did not follow that team at the time. After a fall-out over a move to Anfield, which saw Everton moved to Goodison, Houlding founded another club, eventually named Liverpool, and both clubs were formed in a Protestant tradition. As football developed in the city, these two clubs became the most successful and soon attracted fans from all traditions.

{Ed001's Note - I know what happened. You need to check your writing, because I can tell you fully, coming from a mixed Proddy/Catholic family, that the Catholics were almost all Everton and the Proddys almost all Liverpool, regardless of how it started. The split with Houlding was complete, he had nothing to do with Everton and filled the Liverpool team with Scots, mostly Prods, as he was a Prod, so the others naturally became the team of the Catholics. It was not the same as Glasgow, where you all live in the 17th century and think it is worth arguing over this stupidity, but there was a very real split, just not as total or as violent, or even as definite. We just moved on down there and it quickly reverted to reds and blues being reds and blues rather than the idiocy of the sectarianism.}

From what I have read, (and as I mentioned I lived in the area for a number of years, the Everton association with celtic and the Liverpool association with rangers grew more out of Politics than Religion, although at the time, (late 19th century), perhaps with Liverpool City politics, religion became synonymous with Politics because of the support that the Liberal Party of the day gave to Irish Independence and the growing Irish catholic presence in the City, while the Conservative, (the predominant Party of the day), were very much the Party of the Loyalist Population and carried the Protestant population of the City as well as the Irish Protestants that emigrated from Ulster and other parts of Ireland, to Liverpool at that time. (In deed the formation of Liverpool grew out of a dispute among the Board of Everton Football Club, with the first Chairman of Liverpool having previously been the prominent Member of the Everton Board of Directors) . Among the various writings on the subject there is clear information on Members of the Liverpool Directorate being members of the Orange Order, and more important, in terms of early day association with Rangers, their standing in Freemasonry which was always a predominant aspect of the rangers Directorate as well as many of both clubs followers. Everton also picked up Irish support in the early days through their association with a number of League of Ireland Clubs which allowed them to sign a number of what would now be ROI players whereas Liverpool were much later in their history before they entered the Irish transfer market. Nowadays the banter is much more friendly in herms of the religious divide in the City although the dislike for Liverpool among a number of Everton fans did intensify when Everton lost out on European competition as a result of the Heysel Stadium Disaster in 1985.

{Ed001's Note - the banter is not much more friendly now, it has become much more bitter in recent years. Much nastier. It is no longer the friendly derby.}

As i stated when i was replying to Liverpool Ger, i have and always have had, a massive soft spot for newcastle utd, i regard them as my favourite english team. What i would like to know, is there any fellow bears out there, who also regard newcastle utd, as their favourite english team? When answering, please don't let ashley being their owner, cloud your judgement and affection, if you do indeed have an affection for newcastle. Trust me, the majority of the geordies don't like or want him anywhere near their club, they, just like us want shot of him!

9.) 03 Nov 2016 10:22:48
*looks over both shoulders and whispers*

Pssst, pssst, here you all know God doesn't exist right? Like santy clause. Don't mean to burst your bubbles but evolution has pretty much been scientifically proven. The so called Glasgow bigots, none of them could tell ye the first line of the bible or the difference between Catholics and Protesants. Quite funny actually.

*sneakily tip-toes away*.

10.) 03 Nov 2016 10:34:01
Warbs15 I have went down south a few times too see Newcastle if gers had a free weekend and I agree Geordies don't have any time for Ashley but I must admit I haven't been back there since our troubles with him. Rightly or wrongly I feel like I'm giving Ashley money if I was to go back for a match.

11.) 03 Nov 2016 13:00:13
Jaws i've also been down to several newcastle utd games although not for a few years now. A helluva lot of them like rangers, as i witnessed while having a drink in the strawberry pub, across the road from St. james' park. We were treated superbly by the geordies and the strawberry bar staff! Although there all newcastle daft, honestly from the very young to grannys into their 70's and 80's! they all seemed to like rangers. Had amazing times in the strawberry before going across the road and into the game. They made us feel so very welcome. They truly are terrific people!

12.) 03 Nov 2016 13:55:02
Warbs15 agree about that pub was in it when I went down . They are a great group of people and couldn't do enough for us pity about the guy that owns them .

13.) 03 Nov 2016 14:10:24
Jaws, did you get the same impression as me, that the majority of newcastle fans we spoke to, regarded rangers as their favourite team up here in scotland?

14.) 03 Nov 2016 15:14:17
Would agree warbs they all seemed to like us more than that other mob and seemed well up on our past games when we spoke to them.

15.) 03 Nov 2016 16:08:33
Don't know about you jaws, but i was told by a rangers fan, from northern ireland, that the links were rangers/ newcastle and celtic/ Sunderland, as far as the majority fans links go mate. Have you heard anything like that?

16.) 03 Nov 2016 16:40:51
I worked with a Sunderland guy or a mackim as I think they're known he liked the gers rite enough.



26 Apr 2016 14:13:01
Re earlier post about Jordan Thompson. If I'm not mistaken he was on loan at Airdrie till a few weeks back when he suffered a season ending injury. The only youngsters they could play tonight are Liam Burt or others currently playing for the under 20's. Don't think they will though as we need to keep the current squad plus Waghorn and Forrester (hopefully) ticking over till the Cup Final.

If you look at the photos on the club website he is still training on his own with the physio as he was last week. Time to think he might make it back before the end of the season is when he starts training with the rest of the squad. Even then he'd still have to get match fit-no sign of Rossi ter outside though. Think he's even less likely to be back before the end of the season. At least Windass proved he's still alive though!

I'm sure I remember Mark Warburton saying earlier in the season that now that we have a supposed "stronger" squad than last season it would mean if players didn't perform then they would be out of the team. Well today is his chance to prove it or maybe it was just so much guff like -the gap (non existent or enormous depending on when he said it or learning from mistakes ie the same ones over and over again) . So over to you then, Mark.

Got to agree with Cee-we will play 433-one of the things I respect about MW most is agree with him or not he sticks to what he believes in and that is plan A or plan B (do plan A better) . He also didn't get Barton not to play him regularly now it's up to Joey to prove that Broony is indeed"not in his league". Whether hedeserves to play on current form- definitely not in my view but he will still play against Celtic.

If MW, DW and FMcP don't have the nous to dismiss Lafferty out of hand as an option they will go down massively in my estimation. Yes he did have a knack of scoring vital goals now and again but he was often a liability on and off the pitch, totally lacking in loyalty and I see he has now added an FA misconduct charge for illegal betting to his CV! I have to believe that they would never want such an utter chancer in the squad. I know we've got Joey B. so most deserve another chance (if they show they've earned it) but Sir Laffalot-forget it!

Seems you're at it again, luigi. The thought of actually signing Onyewu doesn't have me jumping for joy but at the moment he is only on trial. According to MW in the press he was suggested to us by Niko Kranjcars agent so we must have said-OK let's take a look at him since he must have been a half decent player at one time (US caps, Champions League experience) and we're over in the US training anyway. The transfer window doesn't officially open till Friday but even if we've got no actual money to buy anyone we still have the loan market and could pick up someone like Dom Ball (perhaps even him) so why are we desperate at this point. By the way if he is as you suggest rank rotten do we not trust MW and DW in their ability to suss this out during his trial and to say - thanks but no thanks-or trust that if we do offer him something it's because he's been sufficiently impressive not because we're desperate. Couldn't that be a possibility or do you have so little faith in them.

Well said Hugh. They're going to win the league by miles but as always they canny even do that with good grace or accept they weren't the better team today and that we deserved at least a draw. Considering we were rubbished by all Rayman's fellow Celtic supporting"impartial"pundits we are entitled to be happy with that result. So Rayman gerrit right up ye!

Sorry DN30 yes you did not play that well but no we were not lucky except maybe that Madden was unsighted for Hill's tackle on Griffiths. Indeed you were lucky you have a really good keeper and that we don't have a clinical finisher in Waghorn otherwise your"off day" would have ended in defeat.
