Seeing polls on facebook about getting Cummings back. I mean come on. He just wasn't very good. Think he has found his level now. If he did come back he would be in sadiqs place, barely making the bench how is that good for anybody. He cannot play as a lone striker so absolutely zero point in him coming back.


1.) 30 Oct 2018 21:12:02
I thought he wasn’t really given a chance think he was worth another punt this season.

2.) 31 Oct 2018 01:44:35
Yeah and Peterborough play with a partnership and are second top, while we play one up top and are 5th. Maybe his lack of being a useful solo striker every week isn't actually the problem at all.

3.) 31 Oct 2018 11:19:47
Rfcrb different teams different leagues. We r top goalscorer in Scotland
Cummings is a ned who is not of the standard to improve us.

4.) 31 Oct 2018 12:09:19
I can’t believe fans want Cummings back he was poor against any decent and only scored when we played championship teams.
He wasn’t and never will be good enough for us.

5.) 31 Oct 2018 12:56:36
I would have kept him around for the money they were looking. He would have been a better punt than sadiq.

6.) 31 Oct 2018 21:59:02
Hate to say this but Gerrards been tactically out classed by Mcinnes and now Clarke any one else agree on this? Tonight was just not good enough.

7.) 01 Nov 2018 03:50:44
I wouldn't say tactically outclassed. Both games the teams we played parked the bus, created one chance and got some thing from the game. We know that most if not all teams will come to ibrox and play like that so its not any fancy system its a case of us having to break them down. We done that tonight and went infront, our problem was being sloppy at the back and letting them back into it almost straight away.

8.) 01 Nov 2018 11:17:07
for the second game in a row the opposition put two men n the space the wingers need to go and we do not make anything of the space created by this -who's fault is it?

9.) 01 Nov 2018 12:00:58
We’ve not been tactically outclassed in any way. We’ve been the better team by a distance in both games and unlucky. Is it good enough just now no, does Gerrard and the team deserve criticism, yes. But to suggest he’s been outclassed is utter RUBBISH.

10.) 01 Nov 2018 20:40:54
I'd say Gerrard has been beaten by more experienced managers, who can see some very obvious flaws in the way we play. But the same would be said about us against Maribor or Villarreal away. We don't have the quality to break down tough defences, and we don't have the discipline and concentration levels individually to stop the counter attacks. Gerrard can't make the players more creative or make them concentrate. The system is effective though, that's why we dominate games most times.



04 Jul 2018 22:06:17
Reports suggesting Foderingham could be away. Think this is a good move, its clear McGregor will be number 1. Alnwick is a decent back up. What u guys think is a fair price to ask for big Wes? 1.5mill fair i think.


1.) 04 Jul 2018 23:30:43
Id take anything over a million add it to anything we get for Albee. and then use it to buy another centre back

2.) 05 Jul 2018 00:44:26
Yip, agree goatboydundee

3.) 04 Jul 2018 23:38:20
Too low, we need to play hard ball. Over 4

4.) 04 Jul 2018 23:57:33
Hodson looks to be away as well!

5.) 04 Jul 2018 23:59:22
I think 1.5 is fair but I think we could get more in the region of 2 - 2.5 English championship is awash with money and he ticks all the boxes

6.) 05 Jul 2018 02:13:35
1m or over and take it but add a sell on clause. Noone will over more since they know he's been told he's 3rd choice.

7.) 05 Jul 2018 07:37:30
we nd to stop undercutting oursels when accepting bids for players since the neymar deal players value have gone crazy we should be looking to make a very good profit on wes

8.) 05 Jul 2018 08:15:12
Fodderingham just isn’t McGreggor I’m afraid. Has great moments but brings a lack of confidence to the back line that you can’t have. Hopefully we will get a few quid for him. Problem is that you are offering him for sale and not awaiting an offer which tells it’s own story. Get cash and reinvest it. Centre half Cooper from Millwall please. Solid

9.) 05 Jul 2018 09:10:55
Realistically i think he's worth just under 2 million. Probably about £1.8 or there abouts. In todays transfer market that means we should be looking to get £2 million + for him. If we were offered £1.5m for him in one lump sum, or £2.2 million but payed in installments, what would everyone take? Imo we'd be better with the higher bid, even if it was in installments.

10.) 05 Jul 2018 09:30:43
I’d prefer we loan Foderingham out for a season or 2 just incase he improves, he’s a good keeper with still some potential and with McGregor getting on a bit we don’t want to be left with starting from scratch with no keeper when McGregor is done in a couple of years- Fods loves this club and there’s just something saying we can have good years with him yet

11.) 05 Jul 2018 10:08:00
We will get around 1M for Fod. McCrorie will be our next no1!



25 Jun 2018 15:07:51
Hardie been loaned back to Livi for whole season. Massive year for the kid see if he can cut it in the top league. This will be the season which will define if he's good enough or not.


1.) 25 Jun 2018 19:19:06
Yes ryan hardie going back to livingston on a season long loan deal, is down to the fact that kenny miller is about to be announced, as the new livingston player/ manager!
Miller instructed the livingston board, to get ryan hardie tied up again!

2.) 25 Jun 2018 20:11:28
Cooper don’t think the Hardie deal was anything to do with miller

3.) 25 Jun 2018 20:27:56
if hardie couldn't break through last season then i can't see him having a future herrera was getting on the bench before him i just see another kane hemmings with boy aslong as he’s at a club that doesn't have massive fan pressure he’ll score goals

4.) 25 Jun 2018 21:12:09
Cooper the loan has nothing to do with Miller it’s been in the pipeline for weeks he was at Livingston from January onwards.

5.) 26 Jun 2018 00:59:45
Can’t we hit the jackpot for once with a boy like Ryan Hardie? Harry Kane wasn’t much of a player when he was loaned out to Norwich and Milwall but came back to spurs, took his chance and flourished- it’s about time we got lucky with 1 of our crop of young talents

6.) 26 Jun 2018 09:42:45
The Hardie deal with Livi was agreed as part of his new contract. Absolutely nothing to do with Miller. Player manager role looking likely but nothing signed. 3 other SPL clubs hoping to sign him in a player/ coach role.

7.) 26 Jun 2018 11:57:53
I think loaning Hardie back out to Livi is a great move. He'll be desperate to impress against the tougher challenge of the SPL, and by the time he returns he should be a far better player. I really hope he makes the grade, and wish him the best of luck. especially on match day 1. ;)



05 May 2018 17:07:08
Anybody heard anything about Joe Allen possibly on his way? Stoke relegated 2day. Heard it 2day unsure how reliable the source is to be honest so seeing if anybody on here had heard? . Also that was another tough watch 2day. thank god cummings heading back to Forest. Much needed 3 points tho.


1.) 05 May 2018 18:07:47
I think it all depends on what investment we get. If it’s £10m then no chance, if it’s £30m then yeah I think we’ve got a chance. He’d be outstanding if we did get him

2.) 05 May 2018 19:51:41
Most of the rumours are with him going to them.

3.) 05 May 2018 20:50:53
Joe Allen is Brendan's special gimp toy, so that seems unlikely.

4.) 06 May 2018 15:21:08
Given wolves and Newcastle are set to both bid 20mil on him I'm not so sure he'll come to Scotland



28 Jun 2016 15:11:05
Afraid i can confirm mariappa will not be signing. Or at least not until we offer him more cash.


1.) 28 Jun 2016 15:45:52
How can you confirm this are you in negotiations with him.

2.) 28 Jun 2016 16:40:20
where is that story coming from guys as I've looked about and can't see anything anywhere.

Atleast now with a fairly comfortable win yesterday we can now put to bed all this nonsense of what is best formation for us. We must utilise the wingers. can't play a flat 442 v st mirren at home poss but against likes of livi aberdeen celtic killie etc. We must play with 1 up top and that man is Morelos, don't care how much defoe gets a week he doesn't fit in the system. he's number 2 striker its as simple as that.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 10:45:21
Tend to agree with most of your comments Paul.
However as Morelos is going to be in more and more demand and his value increases, can't see us being able to hold on to him for the long term.

Anyone heard or know if we are looking for a permanent replacement for him? .

2.) 28 Jan 2019 11:16:42
Bluebilly yes he will be away in the summer 100%. Sure they had the lad feom charlton on the radar? Unsure tho. Not going to be an easy replacement anyway that's for sure.

3.) 29 Jan 2019 00:11:12
Morelos is away if someone meets our valuation. He is contracted to 2022. If he finishes top scorer in Scotland and keeps up his assists we will make plenty
Like all players he can be replaced.



20 Jan 2019 18:54:11
This is a constant debate i am having at the moment. Myself i think it would be a massive error on the gaffers part if he was to change the whole formation if the team to fit in 1 player (defoe) . I will be astounded if he goes to u top wed nite. It just has not worked for us when playing it in the passed. let's stick with the 433 and morelos being our number 1 striker.


1.) 20 Jan 2019 19:43:19
Just your opinion.

2.) 20 Jan 2019 19:44:53
Also lads just proof reading my post. av had a few sunday pints so no need for the grammar polis to come out in force hahaha.

3.) 20 Jan 2019 20:00:36
The first half today clearly indicated that we would now play a far more fluid front three as all of them popped up at left, right and centre on different occasions - and that's the way forward, dragging defenders round, interchanging and not conforming to a static '1 up' or 2 up'. With Davis and Arfield driving at the inside right and inside left areas, that's some attacking unit.

4.) 20 Jan 2019 21:17:55
6counties of course its just my opinion. that's what social media is all about.

5.) 20 Jan 2019 23:53:57
We were playing 4-3-1-2 first half. Not 4-3-3.

Bear in mind that was a friendly today, wouldn’t be looking to much into it.

6.) 21 Jan 2019 07:16:58
Exactly bearmode91. It was a game of 2 halfs. If we had kept the first half team on and brought candias and barasic on, I honestly think we would have riddled them second half. Good to see all get a run out at this stage of the season. Dafoe looks as though he will fit in nicely.

7.) 21 Jan 2019 08:53:38
will he play Defoe on Kilmarnocks pitch?

8.) 21 Jan 2019 12:59:03
I don't think defoe will start on Wednesday night.

9.) 21 Jan 2019 17:22:07
Defoe has mot been brought to Rangers to sit on the bench, he can do that at Bournemouth. Having said that I've just remembered next 3 games are on plastic piches. Killie, Livingston then Killie again.

10.) 21 Jan 2019 19:55:29
I tend to agree with you paul 86.I don't think for a minute stevie G will go with 2 up top against kilmarnock, on wednesday night! I think it could be a question of horses for courses, as regards to when he plays defoe and morelos together. At ibrox today against helsinki, i thought Davis, jack and arfield looked good together.

Davis is still a high quality midfielder, who's passing today was very crisp and accurate, finding his target the vast majority of the time! kent was playing at the top end of the diamond shape today and looked fairly good there! We must also remember it was only a friendly today, but the good thing is gerrard has a good few options now, at his disposal, in personnel and team formations! Augurs well going forward! let's go and grab 55!

11.) 21 Jan 2019 22:23:41
Deeb why not, he plays on plastic in USA.



31 Oct 2018 21:50:16
4 games in a row now we have been below par. Really struggling to break teams down. almost like we are out of ideas. Candieas needs dropped. Just terrible. Cannot go on much longer. Players should have been well up for 2nite. Something lacking. far too much tinkering about with the starting 11.




10 Oct 2018 21:03:30
Just seen Jason Cummings instagram. Looking through comments, so many Rangers fans begging him to come back saying how much he is missed bla bla. Do people genuinely believe he's a top notch player amd would get a game for us. or are folk just on his instagram kissing his ass. Certainly never impressed me at ibrox.


1.) 10 Oct 2018 22:31:58
Good finisher but poor work ethic which is probably why Stevie G wasn’t interested.

2.) 11 Oct 2018 08:21:08
I thought he would have been worth another loan deal but it wasn’t to be and it’s very doubtful he will ever be back.

3.) 11 Oct 2018 11:12:26
He wasn't a good finisher!

He's a very average player.

4.) 11 Oct 2018 11:21:23
To be fair to the lad, we would have rather had him than halliday last year, but look at halliday now. Good man management goes along way for a player.

5.) 11 Oct 2018 12:59:10
for the 500k it would have took to sign him I would take him.

6.) 11 Oct 2018 17:03:23
No chance re Cummings a wee Ned. Does not know to conduct himself.



06 Oct 2018 17:06:05
Very long season ahead, but domestically it has been a very poor start and we really must kick start that again 2moro. Nothing less than 3 points would be good enough. Hope gerrard does not tinker with side to much. Although worral had a good game on Thursday i would still prefer Katic in there. And he MUST go with morelos and 2 wide men. Cannot play lafferty and morelos together. Kent starting to cement his place in starting 11. Would like to see greza starting to break into side also. Ryan jack also back in swuad i think.


1.) 06 Oct 2018 18:17:48
Defo depends who’s back, If fit I’d like to see:

Tavernier / Katic / Goldson / Barasic
Jack / Coulibaly
Kent / Dorrans / Grezda

With Lafferty, Rossiter and Middleton from the bench, agree it’s a massive game mainly due to all the points dropped so far but also to lay a marker down. Defeat to Celtic going into the last international break was absolutely awful, anything less than a win tomorrow will feel like this wee spell between international breaks was disappointing however a win would make it a great spell!

My gut says 3-1 us, let's GO!

2.) 06 Oct 2018 19:19:52
Maybe tempted not to make too many changes think it's great to rotate the squad but got a big performance Thursday so keep the team relatively the same.

Definitely would use Lafferty against them at some point though.

3.) 07 Oct 2018 07:47:12
Flanagan is a better defender than tav and barasic.

4.) 07 Oct 2018 11:15:02
International break coming up, no need to rest guys, but if Stevie thinks he needs to rotate some players I've no problem with that, it keeps the team fresh.
Only thing that is important this weekend is to take 3 points off the leaders, and move on.

Why would mckenna be mentioned? Aberdeen never appealed it. Not ideal for 2moro. Hopefully we can get through these 3 games without him. big lafferty in the mix.
