We are kidding ourselves if we reckon this excuse for a football team will finish top three, They are woeful. Today we saw a return to the crap formation, the return of Kiernan who was a waste of space. Hill was destroyed for pace. Our goalkeeper sold two goals. Halliday continues to get a game despite being crap. I could go on but it is pointless. We are seeing the results of King's failure to invest serious money in football players and we are now seeing the clear failure of Warburton and his cronies to acquire even one decent player despite all the bull about how great McParland was. King needs to make a serious statement about his commitment by bringing in a top quality management team and finding a way to bankroll some quality signings. Totally embarrassing. Shades of McCoist's team and shades of everything that has been wrong for the past five seasons. Rant over!

4everinroyalblue, I suggest that you read excerpts from Sheridan's perjury trial or the various Press Reports at that time. Davies would simply destroy the little credibility that we have left if he was given the job when there are numerous other candidates with significantly better credentials out there.

And you shot me down in flames for that suggestion Rick Witter!

Wilson is a good call and it has been rumoured that he is wanting to return to Scotland. Another option would be Mitchell at Spurs. I like the idea of a young coach like Van Brookhurst but I would rather have Duncan Ferguson or Iam Ferguson than Barry Ferguson. It is way to soon for Barry.

I guess we must come from different generations. I want a manager that warrants respect both on and off the park. Sorry but Davies is not that person.

Personally I think he should have a one to one with each of them, Alex Ferguson or Souness style. Any of them still walking after that would better understand what was expected of them. There are players at Rangers that are better than we are seeing but they have been destroyed by Warburton's pansy attitude!

Interesting selection and certainly couldn't be any worse that the ones that have Kiernan and Halliday in the side!

O'Neill is correct in what he says. McCoist's teams lacked coaching and management but against premier league opposition I suspect they would have shown more fight and more guile than the current bunch. We are seriously in need of at least four top class players, with that level of skill in the team we might see better performances from some of the others. Much as I liked Warburton's passing style he really turned our team into a bunch of 'softies' with no aggression, no team spirit and no fight! He took away the mentality that is needed to play for rangers!

Maybe it has something to do with the attitude of previous management that has rubbed off on the players just like the aggressive nature of Souness, Wallace etc., showed in the competitive nature of teams under their guidance!

Halliday is not a Holding Midfield player and shouldn't be deployed in that area. Either he plays further up the park or if he is not good enough for that role then he should be now there near the team.
The fault, that he plays in that role and continues in that role despite being at fault for goals week in, week out, is not his. It is the fault of management!
What I would criticise him for, (since he is supposedly a died in the wool bluenose), is his lack of commitment, his lack of fight and his lack of guile. Indeed I reckon that LVB hit the nail on the head when he questioned his mentality. He is not, for me, the brightest of people. In the recent Celtic game, with Brown booked early on and controlling the midfield, someone with a bit of intelligence would have had the guile to get him a second booking and a red card!
As for Kiernan, for a big guy he sure lacks fight and solidity. He should be commanding that penalty box in the air, he should be attacking and winning every ball in the air, but then if the coaching staff don't coach you to play the ball in the air what chance do you have!
