Everyone speculating on here, who the new striker is going to be, some expecting us to spend millions. I was wondering myself just as much as the rest but having thought about it, I think it is likely to be a loan signing perhaps once the EPL is ended. Disappointing I know, we all want a top player.

but with c.v. going on and Morelos going nowhere (nobody wants him because of his moods, discipline, and effectively downing tools since Xmas), Defoe still on the books although injured, a loan signing (decent quality) makes more sense. This will only change if/ once El Buffalo starts to perform at his best again and other clubs start to take notice. Good news is I think we will benefit from this, until an offer comes in for him and he’s off. Just my thoughts guys.


1.) 25 Jul 2020 15:20:14
I'm struggling to think of a good quality EPL player that will come to us. Most of the top drawer players will be retained by their current clubs, especially with the 5 sub rule in play. Those that are available will choose to stay in the EPL if given the opportunity so best we can hope for, and even that is debatable, is someone that would choose us over someone like Derby County or Brentford! Otherwise we end up with more rubbish. We only have one fit striker at the Club. We need at least three so we are currently two down and if we don't sort it before the league starts, (with the risk of Morelos being injured or red carded), we could end up in trouble. Our squad is already lacking in quality if we are honest!


2.) 25 Jul 2020 15:32:04
There's plenty of players that will be/ are out of contract.
Am sure SG will strengthen further before the season starts.


3.) 25 Jul 2020 16:26:21
Thats a good point berkshire blue, that 5 sub rule could prove very interesting.


4.) 25 Jul 2020 17:31:19
bryce, I reckon that with five subs we will see more tactical play by managers. They will use more of their squad and they will be able to have a second striker, two midfield players and a defender on the bench along with a keeper. That effectively means that you need sixteen first team players minimum. We still have a bit of work to do to ensure that we have the right quality across the pitch.


5.) 25 Jul 2020 20:52:47
roofe on loan and dykes on purchase seems to be favorite.


6.) 26 Jul 2020 12:16:39
I'd go with that Eric Blair, plus a good strong holding midfield player although I wouldn't be surprised if the boy from Peterborough ends up with us.


 

 

18 Jun 2020 23:28:52
I see Gerrard strongly hinting at new signings coming in! Well I am happy to admit I may have got that one wrong, let's hope so 🤭 Can't help thinking we must also be moving some out at the same time, we'll see.


1.) 19 Jun 2020 10:26:37
Hi Muppet,

I think that we forget how many players we actually have on the books and therefore how many we are letting go of that maybe fly under the radar.

Someone mentioned before the release of Pena and Herrera freeing up wages which is true. But there are more to consider.

Already left/ going - Foderingham, Alnwick, Flanagan, Halliday, Rossiter, Holt, Ojo, Kamberi.

So that's 8 spaces and 8 more wages (whether we paid some or all of these) before we let any more go. Having said that we most likely will let more go. Not because we are skint but it just makes sense and we need to make sense financially and for our future youth coming through.

I reckon we will still see 2 or 3 of the following go - Jones, Middleton, Murphy, Barker and Hastie.
Also things will come to a head this window or next for Barjonas and/ or Docherty.

This gives us at least 10 bodies out. Having only brought in 2 first team players.


2.) 19 Jun 2020 10:40:32
Of those mentioned as possibly going the only one I would like to see stay is Murphy since I still believe that he can do a job for us. I suspect that Middleton and Hastie will go back out on loan and being blunt, I don't think we would miss any of the others including Barjonas and Docherty. We do however need to bring in players of a significantly higher standard than those leaving.


3.) 19 Jun 2020 10:56:10
Get rid of Goldson and Kamara also. That will bring in some transfer funds.


4.) 19 Jun 2020 11:02:09
Ross Wilson ang SG are doing a lot of work behind the scenes. I am expecting a couple of blue chip signings. Hopefully, very soon.


5.) 19 Jun 2020 11:03:46
Hopefully we'll get Kamberi back on a permanent deal👍.


6.) 19 Jun 2020 12:11:11
I agree get kamberi back in, good squad player.


7.) 19 Jun 2020 12:22:54
Keep jones docherty middleton latter 2 prob o out on loan

Sell or release murphy hastie barker goldson

Katic i think is our best cb
Get another top striker in
Kamberi would just be a squad player others would be put in front of him same as jones but still think there more to come from jones.


8.) 19 Jun 2020 12:31:05
INTR, I agree about Katic, imagine what he would be like if he had someone like Davie Weir to sort out his positioning.


9.) 19 Jun 2020 12:55:11
Katic will get better with experience. A no nonsense defender like Helander beside him help matters.


10.) 19 Jun 2020 14:50:55
Coldo have to disagree I hope kamberi doesn’t come back he just isn’t good enough.


11.) 19 Jun 2020 15:54:33
Kamberi could do a turn for us! he's not a first choice striker but wouldn't be a bad signing.


12.) 19 Jun 2020 18:51:43
Agreeing pretty much with all comments above. I’m still unsure about Jones, he played well for Ireland and is definitely a decent player, like to see him again this season injury free think he has something to give. Seems Gerrard was very confident about the signings and I’m sure he has a definite or two already lined up which makes me wonder if Tapia is coming. What you think?


13.) 19 Jun 2020 23:22:04
Kamberi would be an easy decision for me.

I'd also agree with the comment on how many players we have on books. We have about 8 central midfielders and only 1 or 2 are good / consistent enough and if truth be told even those two wouldn't make a real Rangers team.

We need to rid the deadwood and bring in quality.


14.) 20 Jun 2020 00:04:26
I agree. Get rid of the deadwood but some are happy to pick up wages until there contract runs out. We do not want to return to the position of paying players to leave.


15.) 20 Jun 2020 02:58:18
Not good enough? He was our best player.


16.) 20 Jun 2020 00:47:10
From what I hear from a friend SG isn't happy with wide options. Hastie and Middleton will head out on loan and if suitable deals barker Jones and Murphy will all be moved on. 2 new wide men will come in. If possible polster will move on if we get a suitable replacement cover RB. 1 GK will be brought in with mccrorie twins both heading back out on loans, GK one will be challenging for no1 season starting 2021
There could be first team players sold with morelos (SG wants to keep but some offers are too good to turn down) and tav possible exits. Toney from English league 1 will come in weather morelos stays or goes. Look for us to use the likes of Patterson, Kennedy, kelly and other youth players when needed as they are getting closer to first team.


 

 

17 Feb 2020 07:53:31
Supposing we win nothing this season which is by far the most likely scenario and heaps of transfer money is not made available from thin air to revamp the squad, next season why would gerrard remain to face more humiliation. surely from his point of view, getting out would be the sensible option before his reputation is in tatters. And where is the transfer money materialising from?


1.) 17 Feb 2020 09:13:51
Good point.


2.) 17 Feb 2020 09:42:20
if sg walks his reputation will be in tatters!


3.) 17 Feb 2020 09:54:11
Are we forgetting we played everyone off the park for first half of season Inc top European sides in porto etc. We have had a disaster over the last 4/ 5 weeks. If we click back into gear play well to end of season (probably still won't win the league granted) but from where we were when Gerrard came in then how can that be time for him to go. We've bridged what was a massive gap between us and them and other than a shocking couple of games we've been had a good season, we're still in the fight and there's still Scottish Cup to go for.
Yes, it's a missed opportunity in the league but only because we were put in the position of being so good in first half season.
Back the team and the manager.


4.) 17 Feb 2020 09:58:29
He helped build the humiliation you talk about.


5.) 17 Feb 2020 10:20:26
if he needs heaps of transfer money on top of what he’s spent is that what we need.

how much do you actually need to put a team on the park to beat bottom of table hearts or a poor killie / dons anyway

without contradicting myself i do admit hagi looks very good and he would be an excellent addition to our team but will prob cost 4/ 5m.


6.) 17 Feb 2020 10:49:35
Being honest, I eouldnt pay 5m for haji on the evidence of what I've saw so far.


7.) 17 Feb 2020 14:06:25
Trev, livi spent about 8 pound on transfer fees, yet beat celtic 2/ 0 we need to keep buying players until we've got a good enought pool of player to challenge celtic, as its going to be hard winning the league with the small amount of first team players we have at this moment in time.


8.) 17 Feb 2020 14:20:24
Spot on Trev about the hearts / killie an dons recent games .

Be surprised if our own supporters don't give us gip for that comment
tho.


9.) 17 Feb 2020 15:07:41
Herewego55 Really? he has scored and got an assist in 3 matches and has still yet to fully settle into the squad. Time will tell but tbh i'd already say he is a better acquisition for 5m than Kent is for 7m.


10.) 17 Feb 2020 17:13:40
Exactly, but Kent's not exactly setting the heather on fire. Cracking player, imo not worth 5m if thsts ok?


11.) 18 Feb 2020 10:24:19
Trev, celtic have spent massively, they've earned at least 200 million in ch lge money, plus 20 mill in transfer fees while we've spent a pittance in comparison, and you and others expect gerrard to win league in a short space of time, phew I've heard it all now. the 25 million in transfer fees recouped by celtic was buttons compared to there ch league money, i think people should think for a few wee seconds before posting.


12.) 18 Feb 2020 15:19:04
Herewego55 we can't really say either way. if we do then its hardly giving the boy a chance. as i said time will tell he looks a cracking player and really 5m when you think of it isn't really that much money compared with the fees that we hear down south (i know were basically a farmers league in comparison)


13.) 18 Feb 2020 23:15:15
Kylel1872,i think if we bring in another 3players of his quality in the summer, we would definetly have a team good enough to win the league, that's the way we will build until we have a strong pool, and lots of current team will be squad players.


 

 

02 Sep 2019 09:22:48
Jones potentially out for some time with a knee injury, Middleton and Murphy on loan, Kent not returning, Candeais gone, Grezda not in the picture, that leaves us with only one winger Oh no! How are we going to break teams down like that?


1.) 02 Sep 2019 10:39:58
Barker, Arfield, Ojo - while hardly the depth of Barcelona it's a bit more than 'one winger'.


2.) 02 Sep 2019 10:52:34
Arfield is wasted trying to play anywhere other centrally.


3.) 02 Sep 2019 11:21:16
although I think arfield best position is more central, he can play right midfield. I can see another attempt at signing Kent today.


4.) 02 Sep 2019 11:46:14
Scotty Arfield ain't a winger rfcrb1872!Barker and ojo are wingers.


5.) 02 Sep 2019 11:50:50
Arfield is not a winger.


6.) 02 Sep 2019 11:54:56
apart from barker and ojo. u seem to be forgetting docherty. and murphy has not been loaned as yet (in fact neither has hastie as yet) might reconsider hastie if jones is long term.


7.) 02 Sep 2019 12:41:56
Yeah, he was shocking out wide during the split.


8.) 02 Sep 2019 12:44:40
barker is injured and untried, arfield isn't a winger. neither is ojo.


9.) 02 Sep 2019 12:57:37
Sky reporting Ryan Kent in £7mill talks with RANGERS 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧.


10.) 02 Sep 2019 13:02:22
Just heard Kent is on his way phew at last I had almost given up hope!


11.) 02 Sep 2019 13:02:27
Kent signing today for £7M.


12.) 02 Sep 2019 13:03:18
I don't rate Ohno and Arfield is not a winger, fortunately Kent is on his way!


13.) 02 Sep 2019 13:12:20
I think it looks like Kent is coming now! Permanent deal almost agreed. Maybe the boards hands been forced following that performance yesterday and Jones getting himself injured!


14.) 02 Sep 2019 13:13:17
Kent should be over the line today 7mil.


15.) 02 Sep 2019 13:28:36
Sky now reporting we have agreed 7million with Liverpool for Kent.


16.) 02 Sep 2019 14:52:37
Kent is returning my friend! 7 mil offer accepted.


 

 

01 Aug 2019 21:10:13
Here's a thought. Rangers knew exactly what they were doing in the kit fiasco and gambled on getting away with it and had they done so they planned to buy Kent but when it became apparent that their gamble had backfired they dropped the plan hence the timing of SG announcement that they had given up hope of bringing Kent back to Ibrox?


1.) 01 Aug 2019 22:30:32
They never planned to buy Kent you came up with a BS story that they would and now trying to cover yourself.


2.) 02 Aug 2019 09:17:34
GANNET10 a wee question for you my friend. You have always insisted on here, that ryan kent wasn't that good or consistent and wouldn't be a big a big loss if we didn't sign him. I like many others on here said he is a cracking winger and would have loved him to sign with us, on a permanent or another loan deal. How would you feel if ryan kent was playing against us for celtic this season? Because i wouldn't be in the least surprised, if they tried to sign kent. There's stories doing the rounds that they quite possibly will try and sign kent. Me personally, it would make me physically sick, if i had to watch ryan kent playing against rangers, in that rag of a hoops jersey. He would obviously have the ability to hurt us badly.


3.) 02 Aug 2019 09:57:51
SGL if they sign him for £7m then it would not bother me as he is simply not worth that money in Soctland but if they sign him for £3m and we could have, this would be a conern. Good player though he is, he his not worth the figures being touted about. Ask yourself why Liverpool are apparently prepared to let him go.


4.) 02 Aug 2019 10:03:31
Living up to your name, muppet. DK knew what he was doing and hoped to get away with it, true. But the rest makes as much sense as the Swedish chef.


5.) 02 Aug 2019 12:51:50
People saying Celtic after kent need to stay aff the fkn glue.


6.) 02 Aug 2019 12:56:05
hi fellow bears
look its fairly simple! we will have to do a deal with sports direct . end of! we cannot use elite hummel! end of! dave king has said any financial settlement will be paid! end of! the club has stated we will not be without a shirt sponsor next year! so can we move on now please


7.) 02 Aug 2019 14:34:54
The club/ Dave king said he'd dealt with SD/ the fatman before. Dave says a lot. The situation regarding kit/ merchandise is a joke! End of!


8.) 02 Aug 2019 15:11:52
how is it a joke we were getting 7p in the £ got rid of that now we have to do a new deal what's the problem mr grumpy? the situation is a hell of a lot better than getting next to feck all now at least we can try and do a deal with sports direct they have been told to sit down and strike a deal its in all parties interest. if dk hadnt got us out of that ridiculous deal where would we be now. up to our eyes in debt to ashley and his cronies or i shudder to think where we would have ended up. like i said just do a deal that suits all parties it is actually that simple.


9.) 02 Aug 2019 16:23:14
Mols the question you ask me is very easy to answer pal. Liverpool are prepared to let ryan kent go because they can't guarantee him game time,
with guys like salah, mane and firminio in front of him. Also klopp said that kent is too good to not be playing regularly for a good football club. He needs to be a settled regular in a starting 11,at his age now. Hope i've answered your question mols.


10.) 02 Aug 2019 16:38:36
Someone on here posted that the Hummel deal was a 5yr deal. Does that mean SD have to match that then we are tied to them ( albeit on the same terms as Hummel) for another 5 years?


11.) 02 Aug 2019 17:48:59
BS story? Not making sense? SG himself has stated that he wants Kent and was prepared to wait for as long as it takes so no question the SG agrees with me and many others on here about the value of having Kent back. Question is would rangers pay the asking price of £7m if they could afford it? I think so. If the SD fiasco had not raised its ugly head and they had moved out Grezda and another it would have been perfectly doable. The SD carry on has severely dented that possibility but tav could still go and Kent could come in on a permanent deal which is what I am claiming. Let’s see who is right!


12.) 02 Aug 2019 20:28:10
SGL comprehensive and probably fairly accurate response but in other words he is not good enough. We will see where he is playing his football in 5 years time. He will get a game every week in Scotland but no so sure about the EPL.


13.) 02 Aug 2019 21:09:10
Zikos, i can assure you the hummel kit deal was most definitely a 3 year deal, not a 5 year deal mate.


14.) 02 Aug 2019 22:27:05
Our lovable rogue Dave told us, the supporters he'd paid off the fatman, that obiviously wasn't true. The club has lost time and time again in court to SD/ the fatman, this costing the club money. Last season dave said the soft loans had been turned into shares. Sounds good, few days later we get another loan from close brothers. It ws only days ago the club was talking about expanding the stadium. Sounds good but obiviously either bull or many years away. After a decent summer of recruiting we should be talking about the upcoming season. Dave King is a chancer and full of it. End of!


15.) 03 Aug 2019 00:14:11
I have said in the past his stats are poor and they are stats don’t lie so they say.
He had 2 blinders against Celtic and slapped brown and to some fans that wear blue tinted specs he is a hero and the rest of the season he was bang average now that’s not me making anything up that’s stone cold hands facts mate.


16.) 03 Aug 2019 11:22:16
First time poster troops go easy, but GANNET, crazy the amount of people on here that are quick to say ryan kent isn't good enough, highly rated enough by 1. Steven Gerrard and 2. Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool manager of the best team Liverpool has seen in years winning the champions league and giving the best premier league side of this generation (man city) a run for their money for the league. Klopp took on Kent on their tour because he was potentially looking at first team football, fair enough it never worked out given the attacking options they had, but considering he was even considered and actually had a lot of praise from klopp after the tour goes to show you how highly rated he is, so don't and never will agree with the bashing of kent on here, stats aren't everything and we wouldn't have done half as good in the league last season. Kent is class.


17.) 03 Aug 2019 12:38:46
but again I understand that with such a price tag some people would be against a permanent move for kent as it is a totally different ball game for us to pay that money compared to English teams paying it.


18.) 06 Aug 2019 10:17:35
So far we have spent very little on players this transfer window and while better than what we had last season the majority of the players signed on free transfers are nothing more than squad players. If we are to win the league and make serious progress in Europe we still require a couple more quality players and that will cost money. Whether we should sign Kent at £7m is open to debate but that is the level of player we should be looking at. We should also be looking to sign a quality striker to play alongside Morelos, not to replace him. It will be a long season and if we progress to the Group Stages in Europe then we are still short of a quality squad.

Predicted 6 -0 today and if we had been a little bit more clinical it would have been.


1.) 12 Sep 2020 21:19:54
Thought Arfield looked very sharp when he came on, best he's looked for a while, definitely pushing for a start. Some of the play was soccer deluxe today, great interplay, great movement and a few great goals. Let's go!


2.) 12 Sep 2020 21:29:49
Predicted 3-0,kent, Tav and Roofe this morning and if Arfield hadent scored late on I'd have smashed it.
So close but yet so far.


3.) 12 Sep 2020 21:32:53
4-0 6-0 sh**e joby same difference.


4.) 12 Sep 2020 23:48:04
I predicted 9-2, so near if another 7 shots went in.


5.) 13 Sep 2020 07:39:35
Second half was best so far imo.


6.) 13 Sep 2020 09:21:34
Not with 3mins to go, I'd have been totally gutted if I had put money on my prediction (massive) odds, and anybody would have you included would have been gutted.
It's Sunday go back to bed dream of a 9-2 victory and get out the right side of the bad when you wake up 😴 😊.


 

 

12 Sep 2020 16:20:13
Injured; Morelos, Jack, Barker, Balogun, Aribo, Katic, Itten 😐.


1.) 12 Sep 2020 16:37:44
To be honest I'm not that fussed about aribo or morelos, I think we play much better without them. Of course I hope they are well and mean no harm on a personal level, just get that in for the easily offended brigade. 👍.


2.) 12 Sep 2020 16:46:53
PROS TEAM PLAYED GOOD CONS ROOFE IS MINCE ALFIE DONE MORE when HE CAME ON AS SUB BUT ROOFE WASTE OF JERSEY TO B HONEST EVEN IF HE NO MAT H FIT he's NO SHOWED 1 GLIMPS OF WAT COULD BE.

And hilarious, or just totally uneducated in football terms.


5.) 12 Sep 2020 17:05:32
Let's just ditch 2 of out best players because it doesn't fit with your agenda.
Funny how an unfit, uninterested Morelos is preferred to Greg Stewart?


6.) 12 Sep 2020 17:06:02
Some people on here are pathetic great performance and result yet people are still sticking the boot into individuals. absaloutey shocking.


7.) 12 Sep 2020 17:07:00
We just pumped Scumdee United 4-0, with the ref turning a blind eye to a ton of fouls that should have been cards, and we have fans saying the players aren't good enough?

There were two red cars in that game. Not given. That should be the talking point.


8.) 12 Sep 2020 17:08:20
Eh? ROOFE WAS BRILLIANT TODAY. WHAT F***ING GAME WERE YOU WATCHING.


9.) 12 Sep 2020 17:24:08
Dsgersroofe was very good, there was not a bad display from a blue jersey.
All our subs were bursting to contribute.


10.) 12 Sep 2020 17:40:16
Thought it was a professional display today. Thought everyone who played contributed. Lots to be positive about.
Some shocking challenges from United though!


11.) 12 Sep 2020 17:45:25
Roofe was very good. And BB, someone getting a game before stewart is hardly something to sing about. 👍.


12.) 12 Sep 2020 17:51:35
Hes shi@te ne er gers class.


13.) 12 Sep 2020 17:59:47
Are you sure you weren't watching the Celtic game DSGERFAN like you normally do?
I thought Roofe was superb and is getting better and better.

Lens v PSG last night hundreds of supporters in the ground, decent atmosphere. New C.V. cases in Paris 10,000. New cases in Scotland 3,000. That wee hitler Sturgeon Fish is getting on my nerves.


1.) 11 Sep 2020 09:03:23
And you not think that maybe it's the French that have the wrong approach? All through this I have known one person directly to have it, now know of two in two days showing symptoms (fingers crossed they are ok)

This thing is still kicking about.

Most definitely yately. Don’t want to turn a rangers forum into a plandemic forum but she definitely is. 100%. Lockdown 2 on route. Sad thing as I knew it was always coming 🤷‍♂️.


5.) 11 Sep 2020 10:47:20
Or celtic's advantage, whatever way you look at it👍.


6.) 11 Sep 2020 11:19:18
If lockdown was to be imposed and we are still top of the league does that mean the SPFL would proclaim Rangers as champions? Think not!


7.) 11 Sep 2020 11:35:07
Doiger, this is why I keep ranting on about our board making sure that very clear rules are in place regarding this. Which as far as I can tell they haven't been doing.

Will we be able to finish the season? I wouldn't want to put money on it.

And yes Yately, she's milking this for her advantage every day of the week.

Im a season ticket holder in BF5 and i think Nicola Sturgeon is right to keep the restrictions. My wife works as a carer and I wouldn't feel comfortable putting her, her work mates, the residents or the guy's from my work at risk of getting ill just to go watch the football. To say that Nicola Sturgeon is like hitler is pure stupid!

My daughters wedding in December was called off yesterday, after 2 years of planning and a lot of cash, she got a call to say it was not happening, so expect more lockdown, and blame the halfwitted people who flocked to pubs and ignored the rules, shame on them, I don’t mean the ordinary people who went for a pint and observing the restrictions, but the clowns who couldn’t be trusted.


10.) 11 Sep 2020 14:56:48
Tomthumb and yogi couldn't agree more lads 👍 my missus is high risk and pregnant and to be honest couldn't give a monkeys about when the football is back live if there is even a wee chance I am putting them both at risk.

Last time I checked Frances population was much larger than Scotland mean they are always going have more cases and deaths.


12.) 11 Sep 2020 16:33:38
Flocked to the pubs? The pubs were opened and people were allowed to go to pubs restaurants etc, how is it their fault and how are they halfwitted if the rules allowed them? 👍.


13.) 11 Sep 2020 17:23:44
Coldo, try reading my posts again mate, it says quite clearly that I’m not blaming the ordinary people who went for a pint, and the ones, like me, who observes the rules and done it safely, I ISaid “ THE CLOWNS WHO couldn't BE TRUSTED, didn’t you get that?, now I’m going to my local for a beer, and I will be doing what my landlord needs me to do to keep her license.


14.) 11 Sep 2020 17:50:11
Coldo don't be a pratt all of the time. The reference was to the morons who have been ignoring social distancing in pubs and I've heard there are many of them. In our local pub social distancing and the other rules are observed brilliantly. These irresponsible idiots are spoiling it for everyone.


15.) 11 Sep 2020 18:36:16
I don't think you can blame just folk that go to pubs, there's people in all walks that don't follow the rules. I think you'd be a pratt to soley blame it on the punter who goes to the pub. Hopefully you's got that👍.


16.) 11 Sep 2020 22:06:08
Coldo can’t you not read mate, nowhere does it say people who go to the pub, it’s exactly the opposite in fact, I’m hoping you will read yet again and try to apologise.

Okay guys (and girls and anyone in between) in the absence of SGL we need some banter on here, so just for fun, imagine the score today was Hamilton 2 Rangers 0. Question is; would Gerrard walk or be sacked?


1.) 29 Aug 2020 09:15:20
Neither he'd stay on. Next!


2.) 29 Aug 2020 09:22:06
Careful with these 'just for fun' scenarios mate, I got a right earful for my Messi poll.
I shall play though.

For me I don't think either would happen.

Here's why, I feel the board are happy with SG and what he is currently building for us. The team is progressing and getting better window upon window and to destroy all that would be absolute foley.

SG will feel exactly the same, and that it will also take time. Yes, there will be a few bumps along the way but ultimately he will believe he is on the right path.

The man is not a quitter, you can see that from his playing days, and he also has a steely determination and desire to win.

Perhaps your question would be better answered towards the end of the season mate, but for now at least, there's my thoughts lol.


3.) 29 Aug 2020 09:53:58
If we can’t beat Hamilton today he should walk.


4.) 29 Aug 2020 10:50:05
Of course he'll not quit.


5.) 29 Aug 2020 10:51:07
If Hamilton beat us today we should sack SG and go for Brian Rice.


6.) 29 Aug 2020 12:04:10
Just like we sacked Souness all those years ago when Hamilton beat us. Oh wait!
One result doesn't define a season.

A lot of posters on here think I hate Morelos and Gerrard. Nothing is further from the truth. I love these guys, admire them both. Morelos a great signing, works his socks off, scores goals, hassles defences. Gerrard has done a lot for this club, highly respected individual, the task he took on was far from easy, but he has done well. Still learning, but regardless of whoever became the manager it was never going to be a stroll in the park. All I want is for Morelos to leave on a high, play to the best of his ability whilst still a Ger, show the world what he can do, and earn the transfer he so badly desires. As for Gerrard, change the system at times, make the substitutions at the right time, drop players that are not performing, and stop sticking to your favourites, and let’s see one of the youngsters get a run in the team.


1.) 08 Aug 2020 20:48:29
That's fair enough The Muppet, you're perfectly entitled to your opinion no matter who agrees with you or not mate. You have explained what your take is with gerrard and morelos, so respect for you for doing so pal! 👍.


2.) 08 Aug 2020 21:39:18
sounds like you love the rangers to me, muppet.


3.) 08 Aug 2020 21:43:42
Whilst we’re being honest I think most things that happen on the field rests at the managers feet.

Morelos gets sent off - I blame SG for endorsing that reaction.

Morelos is unfit and over weight - I blame SG either for allowing him to get into that condition, not keeping tabs on his fitness during lockdown and not having other options.

I think he will mature into a great manager but we shouldn’t be a training ground for inexperienced managers to learn their craft. We’re bigger than that.

Personally think if the season had been played out then he would have been sacked, but he has another chance and I hope he grabs it with both arms.

So far I’ve been quite impressed with how he has tweaked the style a bit but I still fear that we don’t create enough chances. Against Aberdeen Alfie had maybe 2 or 3 half chances. Hopefully SG can get Hagi and Kent to pass the ball every now and then and we can finally push for the league. We’re not far away. I think we have the players just not sure about the management team. Hoping to be proved wrong.


4.) 08 Aug 2020 23:10:10
Its our management team that have brought the players in, so i think with a tweak here and there we do have the management team and as i've always said gerrard will win the league as rangers manager! 👌.


5.) 09 Aug 2020 02:02:17
I'm looking at s. g in a different light now. Blind loyalty to Tav is a joke. The worst performer on the pitch v Leverkusen. Lost possession more than 15 times. Statistically the worst player on the pitch. Worse than that 17 year old kid. Caught out of place more times than anyone else. No tackles. Good attitude in training aside, performance on match days is what matters. He underperformed once again. His mistake cost us a goal again. A constant culprit. Stevie can't now say that he'll drop Morelos for having his mind elsewhere, he has to drop the ones who constantly cost us games. Day in and day out Tav makes mistakes. Sometimes he assists, but not enough. S. G even contradicts what he says himself. I quote "if players don't perform, they won't have a place for the next game". Katic is out at one mistake. Tav is played over and over. Do the management not watch games back and think, hey, look at Tav, he's always in the wrong place and losing the ball? I know 100%, as do we all, that if Celtic win this year, Stevie is done. Two years and no silverware. The worst streak we've ever had. In our existence. Europe aside, the history is there for all to see. No other manager in our history has won nothing in the same amount of time as stevie. g. all talk so far and nothing to show. When that league trophy for 55 is in Ibrox this season, then we can say that Stevie has done it. If it's at Celtic park, Stevie should stop his management career immediately. Rangers isn't a job as a trial run or stop gap. As of now, I believe that Stevie's fate will be decided in the next 30 games. Souness, Smith, advocaat, mccoist, mccleish have all performed better than s. g in the same amount of time. As a player, tremendous, but looking at his numbers so far, as a manager, average. He's spent almost more than all the other managers too. We need to open our eyes now and stop the blind faith. Tav has to be dropped. Goldson has to stop the useless punts up the pitch, as does McGregor. Morelos needs a kick up the arse. Walter Smith would have dropped them without a second thought. Mccoist would of had a few choice words. I remember when advocaat dropped Barry ferguson for being up himself. They all got knocked back into place. S. g just seems to waffle on and then pick his favourites. If the usual culprits are at it again tomorrow, I'm going to be well peed off. Patterson is chomping at the bit for a game and has made very few mistakes when he's had the chance. Let's see what the next game brings.

Well said rossco spot on with it all.

For those that don’t understand, Defoe is well past his best, it’s not that hard to see, but he was top class, and is not yet ready to hang up his boots, there is life in the old dog yet, hence will still bag a few goals for us. Class is class and Defoe was amongst the best, he still has the footballing brain, just the legs are struggling to do what his brain asks. Not that hard to understand unless of course you have never played the game.

Defoe is not our saviour he doesn’t have the legs anymore, anyone who has played the game knows what that is like. Footballing brain still works but if the legs can’t do what the brain wants, it’s pretty much game over. It has been there for all to see in his last games. Not ruling him out all together, class player will still grab a chance or two.

Not saying Morelos is not a good player, he is when he puts his mind to it, and in all honesty I would be happy for him to stay, if his heart was in it, but clearly it is not. Can he be compared to Suarez, not a chance. Nevertheless clubs do buy players with attitude, in fact that’s a requirement, but the way Morelos has gone about it is disrespectful to the club and fans and has only served to damage his own personal ambitions, hence the reason I am so frustrated by him.

They are not interested, who is going to splash out £20m for a player that is over-weight, petulant, disrespectful, moody, ill tempered, unable to control his anger on the field of play, and hasn't performed for months and months. We are talking £20,000,000 here its not sweety money. If he had kept his head down, worked hard, controlled his temper, he would have earned the move by now, instead he acted like a baby.

Not sure your correct about Balogun being a better option than Helander, it’s early days to make that call, not seem enough of Balogun yet to access properly, and Helander did well last match. Also Aribo has improved this season, could be a good signing.

The stigno absolutely right about Kent along with Davis the two best players in the pitch, both were superb.
