Hi Bears,
Lazio just pipped to 4th meaning no Champions league. Wonder if that will have bearing on us potentially signing Lucas. I know a bit unlikely but we have to live in hope. ATB.

TJBB

1.) 20 May 2018 23:40:01
Cos he'll get Champions League games with us? I don't think it will have the slightest bearing whatsoever.


2.) 21 May 2018 04:53:36
It could sway a decision to stay with lazio tho. So is kinda relevant.

Doubt we'd get him tho, would be some signing.


3.) 21 May 2018 13:20:11
I hope rossiter can get fella fit because he'll be far better than lucas!


4.) 21 May 2018 14:30:38
A fit rossiter and Lucas sat in front the back four next season would be excellent

Just watched Murty's Press conference as i do every press conference. Now i'm not saying he is our answer before anyone jumps on this.
There seems to be a marked change in his demeanor, from jovial, happy and friendly to focused, steely and angry. Are we seeing the players pal turn into the gaffer in front of our own eyes?

Even if he isn't our next manager, I hope he is at our club in some capacity.
Lets hope for a weekend of good results all round, Sat pm - 2nd, 3rd or 4th?

Where's my beta blockers!

I also was very impressed with everything about graeme murty's pre match interview for the dundee game tomorrow! Totally with you 100%, in everything you said there, TJBB! He's embracing what's required and is continuing to grow into the rangers manager's job! Graeme murty given the chance will be a very good rangers manager IMHO!


2.) 07 Apr 2018 05:12:17
You've been impressed by all his press conferences, talking a good game, saying all the right things. We're playing Dundee, at home, it should be a easy 3 points. I think we will win against Dundee but this talk about murty 'growing' eh? You hardly ever mention our inconsistent form, losing too many games at home. What exactly has murty done to warrant such adulation? We should be comfortably be in 2nd place, much closer to a bang average c*ltic side


3.) 07 Apr 2018 07:55:54
Are you basing Murtys suitability to be the Rangers next manager on his press conferences? We've taken 1 point in the last 9, 6 of those points up for grabs at Ibrox for crying out loud, there's 8 reasons right there why he should not be our next manager.


4.) 07 Apr 2018 08:16:15
Starting to hear the same nonsense about Murty that I heard about Pedro and Warburton, games aren't won in press conferences no matter how well he speaks he is not a Rangers manager and never will be as neither of the previous 2 were.


5.) 07 Apr 2018 09:26:11
TJBB and supercoop I agree. I was really impressed with what he was saying and he's bang on he can be a tactical master and put on the best training and prep but once the players cross the white line its upto them. They need to take responsibility. i'm not saying he's the long term answer but he understands better than pedro "dogs bark and caravans go on" or warbs "we go away train come back better" he speaks like a fan and he talks like he cares. 100 % could be a great manager for us but he needs to get the players all working hard for the final games of the season. 2nd place and the cup is still on. Also its not really his players he's only had 1 transfer window.


6.) 07 Apr 2018 09:34:46
His demeanour will be changing due to the growing pressure and criticism over the past few weeks. To go into defensive mode is human nature I suppose and the only way that is going to diminish is by being successful. The tanned one has been experiencing some criticism as well and he has let his guard down numerous times. Pity as a wee bit of quality and guile and that lot would have been there for the taking. We'd have seen an astronomical meltdown over by! I really had hoped that Graham Murty would be the answer. He still might be as there have been some positives along the way, however I Don't believe he is the answer right now. He may be in a few years time but not now. We need a wily old experienced manager not afraid to frighten the crap out of those who need it. Now I wonder who would be the perfect fit? Hmmmm.


7.) 07 Apr 2018 10:57:40
Not slating the guy-seems a good bloke, but my wee boy is 9 and he said to me that if he goes a man up on FIFA that he always goes 3 at the back and puts on another attacker.

15-20 mins in last old firm game and nowt.


8.) 07 Apr 2018 10:58:02
What wily old experienced manager would you want seeker?


9.) 07 Apr 2018 11:07:45
Hi Blueberry, Fair comments from all, just my observation. Was wondering though on a point you brought up. "Dundee an easy 3 point at home". For the supporters that's acceptable to have that point of view but just wondering if the players thought that. Any Rangers player worth his salt should be playing every game like a champions league final thinking this is going to be the toughest 3 points of our lives and it maybe it might be my last game ever particularly at Ibrox. The other diddy teams at the moment are showing us the correct attitude on the pitch we need to emulate that for every second the players boots touch the grass.


10.) 07 Apr 2018 11:19:36
This garbage is happening again. Rangers fans who used to fawn over Pedro the Pretzel for no reason other than to be staunch are it seems doing it again with Murty. Misguided loyalty to managers who don't deserve it. We haven't had a real manager since Walter retired.


11.) 07 Apr 2018 11:22:01
@frcchris 'he understands better' - really? Supporting Kipre's challenge on Jack, calling Parkhead second to none, pleading with Rangers fans for patience, praising Celtic for his testimonial and being proud they were the opponent?

He doesn't understand Rangers at all. He wasn't even a good youth coach for hell's sake. Look at the youth results under him!


12.) 07 Apr 2018 11:23:12
if this was any other manager he would be sacked. how does his stats stack up against previous managers now


13.) 07 Apr 2018 11:44:03
Murty is a good coach and a nice but he is not yet a tactician take the celtic game for 30 minuets we attacked the right wing and were unable to create a decent chance he should have identified this after 10 minutes and mixed things up for example move Murphy inside and run at centre backs his use of subs is poor he swaps one player for a like for like player late in the game we need to be able to change a game with a sub like when Lovenkrands would come on with 20 mins to go and run at the centre backs and force mistakes


14.) 07 Apr 2018 12:04:11
RfcChris, once the players cross the white line there is plenty that the manager can do that's how you get good managers and crap managers. Our team should easily be good enough to finish second and it should be putting up a fight for the title. If we drop points today will the Murty for manager brigade still be singing his praises? If not then that tells us that he is only one bad result away from people changing there opinion and that says it all.


15.) 07 Apr 2018 13:13:21
Murty is a half-decent orator at press conferences, and a weak manager at match time.


16.) 07 Apr 2018 13:22:17
I couldn’t care less about his media speeches his record on the Park is of more interest and I’m afraid that isn’t good enough, you don’t get points for press conferences


17.) 07 Apr 2018 13:33:00
Murty is a good guy, decent bloke and doing his best. No doubt about that. That being said, I totally switched off listening to his press conference yesterday.

The comment about once they cross the line there is nothing he can do is just plain wrong. Players have their individual accountability of course, but as Jyf pointed out, having an organised and motivated team is his bloody job! And if they aren't showing the correct application, then change things! Murty seems to be of the thinking, if something isn't working then leave it and hope it improves as opposed to changing things up.

Continually stating 'he is learning everyday' as well. The pressures and demands of Rangers do not fit well with someone learning on the job. No other team that is the most successful in their league would have a manager in place to learn the ropes as manager of the first team.

If we are using how well a manager talks in press conferences as a major plus for why someone should get the job then I honestly despair. I couldn't give a monkeys if the manager belts out nursery rhymes for the entire thing. As long as the team puts in a 90 minute shift and gets results on the weekend.


18.) 07 Apr 2018 14:18:32
Coops - Walter Smith. Neil Warnock. McLeish. Perm any one from three


19.) 07 Apr 2018 14:25:09
Ok I understand as Rangers fans we can be impatient and demanding but what happens if we pump Dundee say 4 -0 today. Then knock smeltic out the cup? Everything changes lads. Get behind the team and the manager.


20.) 07 Apr 2018 17:08:34
@rfcchris.

I'm hoping the second part of that possible outcome is now on the cards ;)


21.) 07 Apr 2018 17:12:26
Can I get your lottery numbers Chris? Maybe it"s an omen and we will dump them next week as well. What's the score going to be? First goalscorer would be good as well lol


22.) 07 Apr 2018 18:41:59
everything changes? nah mate not for me it doesnt. The same way folk like coop admirably hold their opinions Murty might come good, i will stick to my guns that we need better.

What is impatient or demanding about being in a battle for third, possibly fourth against teams we should be streets ahead of?

PS. I will get behind the team, always do. when kick off comes I am supporting and willing the boys to get a result. Hopefully we see something worth getting behind today after the last few games.


23.) 07 Apr 2018 18:44:53
supercooper, murty ain't the answer, just as bad as warbs and pedro.


24.) 07 Apr 2018 21:40:57
Agree Walter struth


25.) 07 Apr 2018 21:47:50
@RFCCHRIS - your prediction was absolutely spot on, but unfortunately we played so horribly I have no idea how we managed four goals.


26.) 07 Apr 2018 22:50:24
Get Warnock in!


27.) 08 Apr 2018 15:53:44
Just interested but what is all the clamour about Neil Warnock?
How is this a way forward?
And how does de Boer know what our club is about any more than Murty?
Not saying Murty is definitely the right man but equally not sure anyone definitely better has been identified.
Some of the suggestions are difficult to figure, Billy Davies for example.
So even if Murty comes up short this season I wouldn't change him without being sure the replacement would be any bette, so not Derek McInnes either.
Maybe the most important thing is someone who can work with Mark Allen who seems to be able to spot and land a player.
Anyway, fingers crossed for next week and what is happening with Rossiter?


 

 

23 Feb 2018 21:42:10
Hi All

Lets not get ahead of ourselves. Its highly unlikely we will catch Celtic this season given the points gap. We need eyes in the back of our heads with Hibs and Aberdeen just behind. In probability terms there is not much between us being fourth or first.
My only nagging thought is where would we be now if Murty had been given the job back in the day. Probably top and maybe still in Europe.

But we can't feel sorry for ourselves, we must move on and grow stronger and learn. I've said it a few times, the more they beat us down the sweeter it will be when we lift a trophy and cry tears of joy.

On another note when we lift a trophy, does anyone give any credit to Warbuton or Pedro after all we still have Windass, Tav, Holt, Bruno, Candias, Dorrans, Jack, Fredo, Mcrorie was given his break by Pedro.

A soft spot remains in my heart for the bread man, long term not up to it but perfect when we needed him. Shame anyone leaves on acrimonious terms, I always like to see ex mangers/ players return or comment on our club in a positive way.
Lets hope for a good weekend of results. All the best Bears.

TJBB

1.) 23 Feb 2018 23:35:03
For me Warburton was unable to adapt formations when required therefore not good enough. Pedro was excuse after excuse and embarrassing in the media. Murty? Really good coach but thrown in at the deep end and conducts himself properly for a Rangers manager. Whatever happens I will always respect Murty. Good guy and I have no doubt he is destined for glory. I hope its with us!


2.) 25 Feb 2018 15:12:54
While he had some obvious failings and ultimately wasn't up to the job, IMO Warburton does deserve a great deal of credit. Miller, Wallace, and McKay, aside he replaced the entire first team squad on a shoestring. The values of Tav and Windass alone will see us profit from his transfer dealings.

However his background was in youth development and in that respect he overhauled the way we were operating and I genuinely think he can take credit for McCrorie breaking through, Gilmour going to Chelsea, and the current youths thriving in their games programme.


 

 

03 Feb 2018 21:22:50
Hi all, no doubt we are still hurting. One step forward 3 back. The writing was on the wall the past 2 games, Ross County had a real go 2nd half and well Fraserburgh was pass marks, just.

We lost that game in midfield. Luxury player Windass should not have started. He is and should be a bit part player. We need all 11 to contribute 100%. Have you ever seen Windass win the ball, ever. We are delicately balanced for failure or success, Murty will have to be brave and drop senior players to succeed. Real metal in the midfield is required, Murdoch should have started.

TJBB

1.) 03 Feb 2018 21:50:16
I agree TJ we lost out on the midfield battle we didn’t command it enough . Everytime the got ball down that right wing my heart was in my mouth!
As for Morelos time to step back and give Cummings his chance.


2.) 03 Feb 2018 23:01:55
Thought Candeais was worse than Windass however both were terrible. Should have taken the £8m for Morelos


3.) 03 Feb 2018 23:42:27
People are far to critical of Morelos give the young guy a break


4.) 04 Feb 2018 02:33:46
If someone can tell me who was supporting Morelos today then fell free to slag him. Gers fans are far to quick to slag him, where were the other players on the pitch supporting him?


5.) 04 Feb 2018 09:37:24
Murdoch left for Morton a while back🤨


6.) 04 Feb 2018 10:24:24
Sorry chaps I meant Docherty not Murdoch. Was on the wine.


7.) 04 Feb 2018 13:28:26
Don't understand why Docherty isn't starting and if we want to keep a hold of Cummings we need to give him more that 15-20 mins. so far Murphy hasn't stood out at all which is a bit of a worry. that results been coming for a few weeks.


8.) 04 Feb 2018 15:30:16
Totally agree, Cummings needs more pitch time. Morelos Just seems like he needs a ton a chances to get one in, he’s great at times and frustrating the rest of the time. I thought Murphy was decent, kept getting fouled and looked good running at the defence. The boy Docherty must surely start against Patrick with a few other changes. We beat Aberdeen but all the hard work is undone and failed to get points when Celtic lost. Frustrated Bear


9.) 04 Feb 2018 16:17:28
Missed Ryan Jack/ Mcrorie yesterday. Somebody to break up play basically.


10.) 05 Feb 2018 08:19:04
I think murty has to change things up can't play same formation 3 SPL games in a row teams know exactly how to counter you that's why Warburton never won 3 in a row as gers manager change things up we played well against Aberdeen then struggled at Ross county but won the three points should have played a 4-4-2 at home to hibs surprise factor plays a big part in today's game and murty although he's learning fast must realise this obviously not chopping and changing all the time but get a couple of formations that the players feel comfortable in and get the results Mon the gers!


11.) 05 Feb 2018 10:27:15
That’s a great point joerfc. I’ve been saying the same thing, everything is so predictable. It was common knowledge that hibs didn’t have their first choice CB’s available yet we still played 1 up top. They are strongest in the centre of the park, yet we didn’t match it and got over run in theory. Got to have plans B and C if things not on point. I think Murty could end up a very decent manager but tactically still naive in my mind. I don’t think we deserved to lose the match and Penalty was very soft but just better game management was needed. Some sloppy sloppy misses from Morelos and windass especially. I hope Docherty gets a start tommoz night


12.) 05 Feb 2018 16:42:04
Need to play two up front and one cdm as we are too defensive at times and don't take the game to them


 

 

14 Jan 2018 00:01:16
All, No doubt we were all jumping around the living round as we scored, can't help myself, voice now gone as usual.

However we can't really seriously take much from any of these games but I think it reaffirms some long term beliefs:
1. Haliday, useful.
2. O'haloran, Not effective, for Rangers, same old!
3. Dalcio, one way ticket.
4.Herrera, Wrong continent, good luck and thanks for your efforts.
4. Niko, Last four months of his career, If he wants to finish with us why not let a world class player gracefully retire with the best club in the world.

TJBB

1.) 14 Jan 2018 00:29:35
Niko, world class? Calm down lol


2.) 14 Jan 2018 00:44:22
Have u got any positives from the games or u just a very negative person we need fans being positive not negative


3.) 14 Jan 2018 01:14:48
two wins against South American opposition, good displays from new players and returning players. second half against Corinthians was superb, alves, Miller, dorrans, Mcrorie and Jack all out - certainly looks positive to me. Let's get behind the team for the second half of the season. i genuinely think we will run that other mob close this year. Thoughts?


4.) 14 Jan 2018 03:33:48
Think your beeing bit unfair on dalcio he is young and showed more than what ohallran has done and could be a player in there just like murty has turned windass around. i feel it mite been a mistake bringing ohallran back tho time will tell.


5.) 14 Jan 2018 03:59:31
2 wins against under 23s
? jaysus


6.) 14 Jan 2018 08:00:53
The first game was against mostly young players but Corinthians had a first team playing, and they have just won the Brazilian league. It is a pre season game for them and really only a friendly, but there is a trophy at stake and that is always worth winning. Now away back to your one syllable word site and pontificate to them!


7.) 14 Jan 2018 10:12:03
Corinthians had a full strength team out they weren't under 23s and we played a team full of fringe players aswell ya tit that wasnt ever our strongest 11 on the field in any of the games. Yet we beat the brazillian champs and athletico minieros no mugs either so drone on ye best nobody uthe were friendlies b teams c teams shut up ya bum u lot will crumble under the pressure now. The cracks were there before the hearts pumpin 11 points is hee haw son


8.) 14 Jan 2018 13:06:13

Halliday: Dug meat.

O'Halloran: Dug meat.

Dalcio: 😐?

Herrera: Dug meat.

Niko: World class!? 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂. Plus, he's also dug meat.


9.) 14 Jan 2018 15:59:40
Who brought the dugs back the first two should never have been brought back going to keep your guys out the side like before!


10.) 15 Jan 2018 12:12:32
Just to end with the negativity as you call it. We desperately need centre halves.

Evening All,

On Cummings and perhaps some others, I like the lad and think he has a future. Our style of play, dictated by the player we have, does not suit him. So looking forward to next season I don't think we can expect our team to look and play the same as the last two seasons. We should have a solid defense and midfield. We will play higher up and not on the breakso much against all teams and not be bullied ever again. Our deliveries into the box will be better (couldnt get worse) . So perhaps next season is the ideal time for Cumdog to stand up and be counted. The guy would chip the goalie on a penalty in the champions league final . So bears, time to hit the reset button, our team/ style/ mindset will be different next year so some players might flourish or indeed fail in the our new era. I suppose we might get more form Jamie if he knows there is a wall of steel behind him. what's your thoughts. ATB.

TJBB

1.) 18 May 2018 20:17:54
Think our style will change. Probably a high pressing possession based game but who knows, just have to wait and see how he sets up


2.) 18 May 2018 21:31:36
Steven Gerrard has already stated that he wants his newlook rangers team, to adopt the same style, that jurgen klopp has his liverpool team playing! The very high pressing attacking football! It will be a very swashbuckling style that should be very pleasing on the eye!


3.) 18 May 2018 22:53:40
I hope Stevie G implements his own unique style on the team not restricted by any manger who he has played under but that shaped his own views on how the game should be played and how success can be achieved. I also hope their is space for any outstanding young players on our books to be given a chance under his stewardship that has been sorely lacking in recent appointments! #letsgo


4.) 18 May 2018 23:09:40
Warburtons was pleasing on the eye until everybody knew what to expect and changed to suit


 

 

13 May 2018 16:28:24
Just been looking around the internet and stumbled across a story about a young (17) England player called Bobby Duncan. He was at Man City and is now at Liverpool. Well he only SGs cousin and a pretty bright prospect as a centre forward. I wonder if he's on the Radar. 17 is a critical age for a youngster and needs to get that real development under his belt to go on to be a success. His twitter page on the 4th and 10th reads let's GOOOOOOO. I wonder, what do you reckon bears?

TJBB

1.) 13 May 2018 17:36:23
By the time he is ready to play, success or not SG will have moved on.

Why develop such young players for other teams to reap the rewards


2.) 13 May 2018 18:51:59
Fair comment Bluebells. Unfortunately It will be part of our business model to develop some players and then sell on. A 17 year old at Liverpool will not get 1st team football. At Rangers the lad over SGs 4 year period could get game time and let's just say he showed real promise at 19 after 2 years with us, sign for another 4 and sell on when he is 20/ 21. that's what will probably happen to Jordan Rossiter if he stays fit for more than one game.

There will be some real potential gems out there at the 16 to 19 bracket that will never develop into top pros because of the way the game is in England and other rich leagues. They need top competition at that age to make the transition. I posted I while back about Dutch football.

According to a Dutch Journo That why they used to be great as their youngsters were blooded young and developed into top pros and they had a production line of them which we benefited from. Now the young talent is bought up by rich clubs hoping say 1 out of the 20 will work out and the other 19 will be lost in the wilderness and will never see top flight football.

So hopefully we will see the fruits of Rangers efforts to develop our youngsters via the new game set up against top euro opponents. IMO we will see a raft of our own players coming through in 2 to 3 years time.

I know bit long winded.

Targets, wishesand hopes for next season bears?
1. Win the league or be very close, no more than 6 points behind
2. Beat Celtic at least twice
3. Win a cup
4. Get to the Euro group stage
5. Put Aberdeen and Hibs in their place
6. Draw Dundee utd in a cup at Ibrox and slash the ticket allocation and embarrass them on the pitch.
7. Skirtel V Scott Allan.
8. A total top signing that catches everyone out, eg Fernando T
9. Get some refereeing decisions, I know i'm on the glue.

Would anybody like to add to my bucket list, is there any team/ player out there you wish to humble.


 

 

13 May 2018 15:01:05
Yet again we may have lost one of midfielders through shocking tackles.
Dorrans then Jack and now Rossiter. No red card shown for any of them. Now today we end with a red, a stone wall penalty/ handball not given and numerous yellows Hibs should have got. The ref was absolutely shocking, almost as bad as our defense.

Scott Allan, your card is marked.

11 May 2018 19:17:42
Just watched Jimmy N presser, could listen to him all day, wisdom on tap. Likewise Cumdog, not so much wisdom but just wondering what he would say next! - got to be part of Rangers next season, we need that type of character in the team, could be the next Robbie Fowler - aright Ill pipe down, LOL.

Josh Windass for 3 mill and then sign John Mcginn for 5 that like getting Mcginn for nowt and getting rid of a squatter, !

PS : Buried my aunt last week, God rest her soul and my dad pointed out a Rangers player at the Purvey, Jim Deeny. He was a distant friend I think to my uncle but absolute class to see him, wife and son make the effort. Times like that when you realize how big the Rangers family actually are and how they conduct themselves. don't forget it guys and gals - never drop your standards.

Seen that posted about Murty on this site plenty of times as well.


2.) 12 May 2018 01:02:30
MikeGer, I accept your point as I was one who gave Murty a slap o the back post pressers however this was just a one of post on JM as a person and not a manager, that's all, never the less point accepted.

Trev, Hi. I agree to a point as I was watching Naismith and Laferty during the Hibs game n was wondering if we had them instead of Morelos and Windass where would we be now. Well we will never know. The only sure thing is these guys are not getting any younger and will not improve. For this season they MAY have given us something but for next season we need a level much higher and for longer.

Hi Blueberry, Fair comments from all, just my observation. Was wondering though on a point you brought up. "Dundee an easy 3 point at home". For the supporters that's acceptable to have that point of view but just wondering if the players thought that. Any Rangers player worth his salt should be playing every game like a champions league final thinking this is going to be the toughest 3 points of our lives and it maybe it might be my last game ever particularly at Ibrox. The other diddy teams at the moment are showing us the correct attitude on the pitch we need to emulate that for every second the players boots touch the grass.

Clint - you done yourself proud, not been with us long but you will not be forgotten. 1 year with us is worth 20 years at a lower league side - go as far as to say championship in Englandshire.

Fair comment Bluebells. Unfortunately It will be part of our business model to develop some players and then sell on. A 17 year old at Liverpool will not get 1st team football. At Rangers the lad over SGs 4 year period could get game time and let's just say he showed real promise at 19 after 2 years with us, sign for another 4 and sell on when he is 20/ 21. that's what will probably happen to Jordan Rossiter if he stays fit for more than one game.

There will be some real potential gems out there at the 16 to 19 bracket that will never develop into top pros because of the way the game is in England and other rich leagues. They need top competition at that age to make the transition. I posted I while back about Dutch football.

According to a Dutch Journo That why they used to be great as their youngsters were blooded young and developed into top pros and they had a production line of them which we benefited from. Now the young talent is bought up by rich clubs hoping say 1 out of the 20 will work out and the other 19 will be lost in the wilderness and will never see top flight football.

So hopefully we will see the fruits of Rangers efforts to develop our youngsters via the new game set up against top euro opponents. IMO we will see a raft of our own players coming through in 2 to 3 years time.

I know bit long winded.

Targets, wishesand hopes for next season bears?
1. Win the league or be very close, no more than 6 points behind
2. Beat Celtic at least twice
3. Win a cup
4. Get to the Euro group stage
5. Put Aberdeen and Hibs in their place
6. Draw Dundee utd in a cup at Ibrox and slash the ticket allocation and embarrass them on the pitch.
7. Skirtel V Scott Allan.
8. A total top signing that catches everyone out, eg Fernando T
9. Get some refereeing decisions, I know i'm on the glue.

Would anybody like to add to my bucket list, is there any team/ player out there you wish to humble.

MikeGer, I accept your point as I was one who gave Murty a slap o the back post pressers however this was just a one of post on JM as a person and not a manager, that's all, never the less point accepted.

Thanks for the sensible replies. It was a genuine question as it seems odd to me to have a managers name on the shirt however on this occasion it would not look out of place, as SG was actually a world class player where most managers are failed players.

Ritchie2 - what are you on about!

Only a game - Jeesoh! I was just sounding out whether folks would do this as there would be a world wide market on shirt sales. I put on the back of my shirt what I want, same with my kids. Just wondering about others opinions.

I really do totally agree with the sentiment, however why would in our current economic position a world club like Rangers be inward looking with regards to players, we should and hopefully will be casting our net to all corners of the globe attracting the best. Which I will admit the best is sometimes not enough, you have to be cut from something a bit special to succeed at RANGERS. Aye Ready or in scouse, let's go!
