Just seen today's pictures from training on the club website. Kenny Miller training with the group and not banished to the u-20's as suggested last week. So what is going on with him then, do we think?

Personally i reckon PC has dropped a clanger. He has assumed Kenny was the mole and after seeing the Gers support backlash he has back peddled quickly.

2.) 04 Oct 2017 19:45:27
Or maybe training and captaining the development squad because he is going into coaching after his contract expires.

3.) 04 Oct 2017 20:02:49
Yeah that's plausible to bearmode

I see Matt Crooks has succumbed to a season ending injury at Scunthorpe. Same happened to him last season, he wasn't fit for pre-season and never got going after that though he was never given a proper chance. Looks like the same will happen this summer. Shame for the big guy but have to wonder whether he'll be on his way when fit again?

Liverpool Ger

1.) 17 Apr 2017 16:40:29
If he has any ambition he'll turn down scunny and return to us to show pedro what he's all about. We need a big tall defensive midfielder and he could save us a bit of money if he can stay fit.

2.) 17 Apr 2017 18:08:15

With that injury I don't think he will have any choice but to return and then prove his fitness again.

3.) 17 Apr 2017 18:56:43
Hopefully next season he'll actually be giving a chance then as warburton clearly didn't trust him in there and played halliday instead. He and rossiter will be like two new signings if we ever get them fit.

4.) 18 Apr 2017 08:22:30
Does anyone believe that he is the player that some folk on here would want us to believe he is. I for one held great hope for him but to be honest I don't think he is, look at the crap some justified that tav, halliday, holt, Wilson, waghorn, Wallace, foderingham and mackay have taken but they have given more than crookes and who knows some of these guys will have had knocks and played through pain that others would feel the need to go on the treatment table with but they have the balls to put themselves in the firing line, where as crookes and rossiter have done nothing to justify this great hope status to me they could just be more in the Daniel prodan mold. Durrant, mols, nesbit, maclaren all played before and showed courage and determination to get back these guys don't have that as they get too much too young, hopefully I'm proved wrong but it really doesn't seem that way.

5.) 18 Apr 2017 09:14:52
Crooks was unlucky with injury last season and it looks like the guy is jinked. Until we see him play we cannot make a fair decision on his ability and he has certainly been playing well while on loan. The guy was never given a chance by Warburton who played Halliday consistently out of position.

No wonder Halliday was rubbish and no wonder Crooks wanted out!

Perhaps we will see an all round better more aggressive team now that Warburton is gone and I wish Crooks every success in making it at Rangers.

6.) 18 Apr 2017 10:17:33
I feel gutted for crooks, he was playing well for scunny, the guy has had a torrid time with injuries. this latest injury might rule him out of this pre season again. I would love to see a fully fit mat crooks to see how good or bad he can be.

7.) 18 Apr 2017 22:42:07
for me crooks had a first touch like flo's and didn't impress at all when i saw him

8.) 18 Apr 2017 23:21:28
Matt Crooks looked average anytime he was guven game time. Wont be missed sorry. When fit ship him out. We are Rangers. Sell out crowds all season. We have one team to catch next season.

9.) 19 Apr 2017 14:36:58
He played like twice!

10.) 20 Apr 2017 01:27:40
How can you say when he was given game time, he was played out of position in the one full game he was given by a manager that was not fit for purpose in the SPL.

11.) 20 Apr 2017 12:01:31
Spot on tom, he was playing well down south, the is the last thing he needed.



12 Jan 2017 17:01:01
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.

2.) 12 Jan 2017 20:23:01
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!

3.) 13 Jan 2017 10:33:20
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



02 Dec 2016 09:54:43
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.

Liverpool Ger

1.) 02 Dec 2016 10:42:31
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.

3.) 02 Nov 2016 16:00:41
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.}

7.) 03 Nov 2016 00:50:44
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.}

8.) 03 Nov 2016 09:15:17
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.

Andy I believe it is Southend and I understand Pedro has agreed to pay him off and let him go for free. Probably Harry is trying to see if they will pay him more than he's worth like we have. Pity about him-when he first came he looked a decent buy but never kicked on and clearly wasn't prepared to knuckle down and work for it.

When he was ruled out at the end of the season it was reckoned he would be out for 10-12 weeks so don't think we'll see him till August or September.

Agree with you Sebo. Whoever disagreed can you tell us who should drop out and why? The only one whose place might be at risk, in my view, is Windass because of his general lack of skill and work rate but he has scored 2 in 2 and given he seems a"confidence" player that would be counter productive, no?

I agree with you Ger 78 Michael O'Neill is a very strong candidate. To add to your points he may not be a"Rangers man" but he played over 200 games of his career in Scotland, picked quite a few Scottish based players for Northern Ireland so must have seen a fair bit of recent Scottish football knowledge and still lives in Scotland. He may be limited in club management experience but like with NI he over achieved with Shamrock Rovers making them the first LoI side ever to get to the Europa League group stage. Plus his current assistant, "Rangers man" Jimmy Nichol has said when he leaves NI he wants to go back into club management so that might give us the nod over Scotland. Depends who he's up against though -I'd pretty torn if it winds up between him and Gio (if he's even interested) given his history with us and his recent managerial success in Holland.

McClaren would be a huge mistake in my view. He won things with M'boro (10 + years ago) and FC Twente (7 years ago) and everywhere else nothing but complete failure. Bit like Big Eck-his time is past. If it's between him and Murty I'd take a chance with Murty every time. If McInnes is still in the race I'd give him a chance. Would get us a solid 2nd as a start and I'd like to see what he could do with a much bigger budget.

I probably shouldn't get upset but we get some really strange people on here. Who would press disagree about poor Fernando-whether you liked him or rated him as a player the guy is dying from a horrible terminal illness where his mind remains active but his body slowly bit by bit gives up on him to the point of death. I'd like the person/ persons who disagree to come on and let us know why they think we should feel no sympathy for the guy and his family.
