Right lads been a few days now since our first competitive match under Steven gerrard. I’m in costa adeje, couldn’t see the match but from what I’m hearing and reading it wasn’t great. Managed to follow on the live chat on here and got into a spat with a few as some of the posts were imo bang out of order. Are we not prepared to give this new era time and indeed a chance? New management, new players, new system? Some of these guys will never have been to a stadium or full house like that never mind playing in front of them. I understand there were 6 or 7 playing from last season but these guys will also need time to adjust to the changes. I know we need to hit the ground running give me a 2-0 victory in Europe any day of the week. Thoughts lads

I don’t like bashing Rangers fans but by **** some of them are thick, moaning about last nights result. We controlled the game. Scored two, clean sheet, and never looked in danger, IF we had a finisher it could’ve been 5! A great result and a good performance for our first competitive hit out and its European competition. A team with 5/ 6 new players starting including 3 of the back 4 and the keeper. We are still in pre season teams and combinations take time to gel. It’s no FIFA or Football Manager. Give them a break. I’ll judge them in December until then they deserve time and a bit of PATIENCE! 🔴⚪️💙

I suppose you had to see it for yourself sharpshooter. We basically played the same as last season although we definitely looked more solid in defence. In saying that though, the team we played against didn't even look as good as a Junior side - they were very poor and still managed to hit the cross bar and put us under some pressure at corners.

I'm hoping that Sadiq is a deadly finisher because we need one to help and support Morelos, even just to shoulder the responsibility.

Also we need someone in midfield that can put there foot on the ball and control a game of football - maybe coulibaly will be the answer?

Personally the guy Mulumbu from Kilmarnock hasn't signed with anyone yet. We should definitely try and sign him even for a year or two. For me he was the player of the season last year.

In general though in regard to giving someone time. I think Gerrard will get less time than anyone has ever had at Ibrox. We have had to watch terrible football for years and think most fans are fed up. The expectation level is so high that Gerrard simply needs to get it right and soon.

3.) 14 Jul 2018 08:21:06
Which begs the question, why persist with Morelos and Windass from last season? A striker should have been the priority. I'm glad the defence looks solid now and we have plenty of midfield players but we need to put games to bed much sooner this season!

4.) 14 Jul 2018 09:07:03
Great post sharpshootersPOM. SG and his team will quickly work out that any of last seasons players are simply not good enough if we get any decent money for morelos or windass i would bite their hand off. i still say tav can't defend and should play in advanced role. murphy is the one exception and will do well. Almost a full new team is required and this will take a litte time. SG and co will get it right. he is quickly working out the players who he knows he can rely on and the individuals who have let the club down far too many times in the past

5.) 14 Jul 2018 09:08:05
I was at the game on Thursday and it worryingly echoed the European home tie last year. Good control in the first half, missed a few chances and looked like cannot sustain the intensity required over the full game. I think most would agree this was the story of last season. I think there are some good signs and it is always difficult this early in the season.

My biggest concern is that Candeas and Windass do no to have what it takes to play for Rangers and Tavernier was caught out of position on at least 3 occasions. Against better opposition we will be found out. If we are to challenge for the league, these guys are not good enough.

6.) 14 Jul 2018 09:53:11
I do agree Morelos and Windass should not be our front 2? The amount of chances last year missed was dreadful and we need another striker in🇬🇧

7.) 14 Jul 2018 10:00:23
Apart from looking solid at the back (against who?, ) It was scarily similar to last season. As far as I know hibs haven't paid millions for a striker, & they got the job done first time of asking!
I appreciate there are lots of changes and things will hopefully develop, but show me something Stevie G.

8.) 14 Jul 2018 10:23:05
I agree we look solid at the back and totally support mr g and his new backroom team but windass and morellos are as bad as last season and just ain't good enough.

9.) 14 Jul 2018 13:07:05
I asked on here couple of weeks ago who else thought we were short of some quality players to win league. I was shot down re candaes, windlass and Morelos.
They need to become bench players, although I do like Morelos.
Also Tav has to defend first and foremost caught out three times at least.

10.) 14 Jul 2018 14:21:05
Zikos you obv have no clue about the levels in football. The opposition didn’t look as good as a junior side? Seriously lol. The levels are enormous! Junior teams playing in Scottish cup prove that.
Opposition were set up to frustrate and kept a solid shape. It was our second competitive game and fans need a reality check. I’d take a win and a clean sheet in Europe every day of the week. They will have to come out now and i'd expect us to exploit the spaces and score a few more goals and keep a clean sheet.

11.) 14 Jul 2018 15:23:34
Scotty123, That was exactly my point! If schkupi (sorry for the spelling) were to enter the Scottish cup at the same level as some of the junior teams then they would get knocked out pretty quickly.

They say there isn't any easy games in Europe, well that had to be the easiest, and they still hit the crossbar and put us under pressure at corners.

In regard to being well set up. You don't have to be a professional team to be well organised, look at Iceland.

Gerrard should try and arrange some close door matches so he can nail down his best eleven. Watching the game the other night it seemed he was still experimenting.



08 Jul 2018 08:06:28
How’s about when any bear comes across sports direct, go in, grab as much garbage that Ashley sells as they can, take it to the till and when all of it has been scanned through, tell the poor wee sod at the counter politely “ no thanks son, I’ve changed my mind”. Causing havoc


1.) 08 Jul 2018 08:26:06
Don't take it out on the staff, take it out on Ashley if you take it out on anybody.

2.) 08 Jul 2018 09:07:57
The staff there have it bad enough as it is

3.) 08 Jul 2018 11:52:18
Reading the report it looks as though king has broken an agreement that would allow sports direct to make an equal bid to sell rangers goods, and that's why Ashley has taken action.

4.) 08 Jul 2018 13:27:00
Ye most of his staffs on zero contracts treats his staff like rubbish.

5.) 08 Jul 2018 13:32:00
Maybe we should be looking closer to home and asking why our chairman paid £3m to Ashley to get this deal and declared it a victory.

6.) 08 Jul 2018 13:45:46
The protest outside stores is stupid idea aswel. That’s just free advertising for him!

7.) 08 Jul 2018 14:59:59
Sounds to me as if someone screwed up. Most likely not King but whoever he delegated the job of making the Agreement to get Ashley and SD to bugger off.

8.) 08 Jul 2018 15:04:17
ABHAB enough about the chairman please . it out a victory . as far as I am led to beleive the injunction for his option to sell the strips is just until the end of the month or Aug. if this is the fact we can all surely wait another few weeks . I for one would love to wait then buy a couple . gi to st james park ( that is if he still is allowed by Newcastle support to sit in stands ) sneak up and throw the strip in his face . then suffer The qoncechenses of being evicted. I would just live to do that . the man is a rat

9.) 08 Jul 2018 15:08:21
TOMUSA the signatories on the deal were King and Paul Murray so seems King was very much involved in the screw up

10.) 08 Jul 2018 19:40:30
Shouldn't matter if Fat Mick is upset he's not being allowed to bid. If Rangers decide Woolworths is preferred bidder Mick should have hee haw to do with it.



02 Jun 2018 08:34:42
Just been watching clips of Morelos from the season and although still young and raw I genuinely believe there is a player there. Yeah he’s missed some glaring chances but in my opinion in his first season at his age gave us a pretty decent return. People say he has a bad attitude? Where is the evidence? Because he looks sick and raging when he misses a chance? Would we rather he laughed? Think he’s more disgusted with himself to be fair. Sure he has his critics going by other posts but can’t really question his effort in the lone striker role surely lads?


1.) 02 Jun 2018 08:53:54
Agree with you there is a player there. His hold up play is class. he's a good all rounder love to miss a sitter tho. And to say wheres the evidence of him being huffy. Its there for all to see. His head goes down and stops trying. that's a fact.

2.) 02 Jun 2018 09:07:57
Echo the comments above. Given a rest a good pre season and some better players around him will develop into some player for us. Just needs to tuck a goal away against the tic and will not look back.

3.) 02 Jun 2018 09:16:42
yes think he could become a real class act.

4.) 02 Jun 2018 09:34:12
He’s carrying too much weight, his bmi is the worst at the club. Once he sheds a few pounds and improves his conditioning his overall game and sharpness will improve and hopefully with it his attitude. I think it’s still 50/ 50 him staying or going. Stevie G will bring in a no1 striker.

5.) 02 Jun 2018 09:39:39
Disagree massively, what I saw was a guy out of shape slow and technically poor, would even go as far as saying he runs like a ****in elephant, I saw a moany greeting faced wee idiot who’s never turned up against anyone decent, he’s not Rangers class and anything over 4 million should be accepted straight away

6.) 02 Jun 2018 09:43:53
You don't get 4 mill for gash players unfortunately

7.) 02 Jun 2018 09:46:38
I don't think he has a bad attitude, I think he just looks like that, probably a mixture of being frustrated at missing chances and being knackered with all the chasing and running about up front on his own,
Just wait until the new coach and fitness team get to work on him he will become a completely different player as will a few more players at the club,

8.) 02 Jun 2018 09:52:18
He’s not Rangers class but you want 4 million for him? Lol name 1 other Rangers player worth over 4 mil or do we just bin the entire squad?

9.) 02 Jun 2018 10:41:41
21 yr old with 89 games under his belt as a pro. A good few of these as A sub and a return of 43 goals. I think it's fair to say the boy is not gash.

10.) 02 Jun 2018 10:47:18
Not gash but on the same boat he’s not a world beater. Worth keeping if he wants to stay but if he wants to go then I’ll not lose any sleep

11.) 02 Jun 2018 11:06:31
For me his hearts not in it enough. You can’t walk about in an old firm game. That can’t happen. Gerrard might be able to change that though. One of his coaches (Beale) coached in South America. I think it was Brazil so he’ll get the mentality and might just be able to harness the lads potential. Fingers crossed

12.) 02 Jun 2018 11:10:59
After 18 games we loved him them bang all of a sudden it stopped. Same as windass. I believe playing with miller was the reason for all there goals to start with before he got injured. His stats on goals scored don't lie. Very frustrating player.

13.) 02 Jun 2018 12:58:35
Highest BMI at the club hahahaha. Sorry mate but you can't possibly know that, also they don't use BMI for athletes. Dear oh dear.

14.) 02 Jun 2018 16:00:43
What even is a bmi does that help u score.

15.) 02 Jun 2018 20:02:27
Agree with BearMode BMI is not a way to judge any athletes. You’ll find Anthony Joshua’s BMI would show him as obese which he clearly isn’t

16.) 03 Jun 2018 18:31:34
TGR i agree. He looked good for a while then turned into a moany wee child



01 Mar 2018 08:49:12
Right lads with the weather causing havoc and games getting cancelled I for one will be gutted if the weekends match is called off as I feel we are getting good momentum going and another good cup win can only put us in good stead for that mob. Also if Murphy and John don’t make it won’t help and I’m not slating Halliday but when John gets the ball he drives at midfielders and defenders and you expect things to happen but when Halliday had the ball the other night I just wasn’t feeling the same optimism I’m afraid


1.) 01 Mar 2018 08:56:58
Halliday continually gave the ball away and put us under a bit of pressure. I also dread to think what that mobs wingers will do if Halliday is left back



31 Jan 2018 07:51:50
Kris Boyd? Anthony stokes? See if Louis moult is available? What the hell is going on around here. Geez😩


1.) 31 Jan 2018 09:23:01
I know what you mean mate, maybe even push the boat out and see if super ally wants to return from gardening leave!

2.) 31 Jan 2018 09:32:08
Lol haha

The manager says windass wanted to speak to Wigan and therefore wouldn’t stand in his way. We move on. Also, the team we are building is showing a real togetherness and more fight and desire than I have seen in a long time. We still have a long way to go but I feel that that mob are not going to get things their own way all the time this season. Their is certainly some unrest with Brenda.

So why is gerrard not playing him DOIGER? He surely knows a striker when he see 1 considering who he has played with no? Dry your eyes because my opinion differs from the great football managers of our time like your good self 😏

4 managers now in the last 5 years have deemed hardie not ready. They saw him every day we don’t. I fear the championship is his level

Who it a sash? It’s a diagonal stripe and the orange order don’t wear sash’s they wear collarettes like a v-shape. Get a grip of yourselves . Absolutely pathetic. And another thing, being in the orange order or even a flute band for that matter does not automatically make you a bigot
