Nikolay Budorov released by Fulham who can play CH or RB (mainly plays Centre Half) and is a 30 year old Bulgarian International has been offered a trial and is expected to arrive at Murray Park in the near future.
As he is a Free agent there's no rush to sign before deadline. Would imagine he will have decent pace if he can also play RB, hopefully he is just what we need.
We are also likely to add a youngster on loan from EPL from what I've been told, no idea of any names or position but I believe he's London based, so imagine we will use contacts from Spurs or Arsenal again.
1.) 28 Aug 2016 17:20:33
I've seen chambers mentioned lately and I think it'd only be a loan if we do get him. Not going to trust it too much since we've been linked with so many people lately but it would be a great addition.
2.) 28 Aug 2016 17:55:38
How can there be no rush? If Wilson's injury keeps him out of the Celtic game we could end up with Hill and Kiernan as our centre backs and that would be disastrous.
3.) 28 Aug 2016 18:45:25
Hill can play LB and he's no pace.
4.) 28 Aug 2016 19:00:48
Chambers on loan would be a very good addition. But it is 1 i very doubt will happen.
5.) 28 Aug 2016 19:19:13
No rush! whoevers fault the killie goal was, some say it started in midfield, some say defence, the fact of the matter is kris Boyd outpaced our defence, believe me, grifffiths, Sinclair, Dembele are far quicker than Boyd, but don't worry, there's no rush! 😂🙈.
6.) 28 Aug 2016 20:46:09
Our defence is solid apparently 😅😅.
7.) 28 Aug 2016 21:06:05
Lol if Wilson's injury keeps him out. if we he's playing we're still buggered.
8.) 28 Aug 2016 23:48:39
Can't see us getting chambers but even if we did I'd still like to see senderos aswell think we need two first team centre backs one big strong and one quick. It's not going to happen but I'm just saying if it was me we would need to just tell hill it's not working and try sort something out then have kiernen and Wilson as back up to chambers and senderos in an ideal world anyway.
9.) 28 Aug 2016 23:50:53
Just read chambers wanted by hull Bournemouth boro Roma and Valencia.
10.) 29 Aug 2016 05:17:09
Joey O'Brien or Calum Chambers would be your best bet out of the four mentioned
We need someone in because Clint Hill is way too slow and the others on board just ain't good enough without that a leading quality centre back
My best bet would be Wilson at centre back with someone with real qualities at the back
Rob Kiernen has the odd good game but loses his man way too often (not near good enough if he were told to specifically man mark)
11.) 29 Aug 2016 05:51:00
I reckon Rangers should pay anything to bring Calum Chambers on a years loan
C'mon Dave King get this lad in
We need to be looking to get rid of Mike Ashley as shirt sales would normally help a great deal bringing boys likes Calm Chambers on loan to the club but the fact that we only get one tenth back into the club, means I will NEVER buy a Rangers top until the day that boy sells up or gives us back what is OURS!
12.) 29 Aug 2016 09:49:24
Chamber will be sold, not loaned out, if we are to believe the press and if that is the case then we can forget it! No way will Dave King spend money on a quality centre back, after all we have Hill, Kiernan and Wilson and Warburton seems quite happy with these three!
He might change his tune if we are well beaten by Celtic and sadly I can't see it being anything else than four or five with Kiernan and Hill in the centre of our defence and a poor Joey Barton that hasn't kicked a ball for us this season!
Add to that the fact that Wallace has been off his game and it does not at all look good!
13.) 29 Aug 2016 12:37:52
Callum Chambers just confirmed as going on a season long loan to Middlesbrough.
14.) 28 Aug 2016 16:20:25
Think I told you this yesterday and the young player I am being told is from Chelsea or arsenal.
22 Aug 2016 19:44:40
Senderos was back training at Murray Park today with his representatives arriving to negotiate a contract this evening.
I can't guess how much he wants or is being offered but I would suggest a deal is imminent and could be concluded tomorrow.
My source advised he was heading for the talks immediately after training today.
1.) 22 Aug 2016 20:52:07
I reckon he wouldn't demand that high a wage being out of the game, i'm happy with him he'd go through a brick wall not the fastest but at least can head the ball.
2.) 22 Aug 2016 20:54:27
It looks like Senders is keen on a deal. I wish him every success if he signs. The guy started off well in his career and then was plagued by injuries. If we can keep him fit then I reckon that he will be a positive addition to our team. God knows we need a couple of decent quality centre backs!
3.) 23 Aug 2016 10:24:25
think we need to be sure we can't get sum1 else in first as he will get injured and leave us with what we have and I don't think he ever reached his potential. we need a marriappa or sum1 like him with pace.
4.) 23 Aug 2016 21:57:44
I'm happy either way but a little concerned that a deal hasn't been concluded yet to be honest I expected him to be announced today and it's went very quiet on that front.
Was he back in training today? He was definitely in yesterday and went for talks straight after.
5.) 22 Aug 2016 20:14:02
Good we need better player and I think he is better than both cbs.
07 Jun 2016 21:28:45
Heard we may look to get powerful 18 year old Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi on loan from Liverpool. He is officially on loan until 30 June to Frankfurt. He has scored 2 in 6 caps for Nigeria and could be decent squad player. Stats of 1 goal in 16 games in Bundesliga 2 hardly fill me with confidence and I'd personally prefer Ryan Hardie as 4th choice Striker behind Wags, Miller and 1 main striker we will probably sign in the window.
06 Jun 2016 22:04:41
Esteban Alvarado Costa Rican Goalkeeper who plays for Trazbonspur in Turkey is said to be on Rangers Radar.
02 Jun 2016 16:41:38
Seen a cpl of articles linking us to Kolo Toure 35 year old CH whos been released by Liverpool. £65k per wages might be stumbling block me thinks. Would defo do a job but unlikely we can put together a financial package he would accept.
Worth posting here though as Rumour season is in full swing 💙.
1.) 02 Jun 2016 18:15:28
Yes But If any family i know that can help each other get through it all its you guys yous have an amazing bond and are all strong even more so together as like one x.
2.) 02 Jun 2016 18:30:51
Toure not joining us that was a rumour put out to sell more seasin tickets trust me, same source that told me about Barton joing within the next 48hrs he signed next day and same source that told me weeks ago that kranjor wouldn't be singing due to his wife wanting to stay in America or as close as just look back at my previous posts there their but Would be a bit back now the day before Barton signed anyway point is Toure is and was never a go just roumours to sell some more season tickets and by the look of it is working but Glad to see 30,000 plus have sold n still tomorrow got mine so If you haven't get yours asap n help i'm all we can to again be the best n number 1 in Scotland to start with, then onwars and upwards.
3.) 02 Jun 2016 22:26:40
People still on this one. It's utter rubbish!
4.) 03 Jun 2016 10:03:11
Toure is just a rumour doing the rounds, I did say it's unlikely he will sign due to enormous wages. I don't think it's a strategy to help sell season tickets though, he's hardly Ronaldo .
If you recently purchased a Rangers season ticket based on us being linked to Toure but weren't going to until you heard the rumour please reply below.
We will sell plenty of season tickets due to the fact we are back in top flight, have guaranteed old firm games, a great management team, an attractive brand of Football and most importantly because we love our club, not because we have been linked briefly to Toure.
5.) 03 Jun 2016 10:42:58
Thats not what i said glasgowranger if you read properly but Nice try of putting words in my mouth but People can read and yes I do totally agree with you about plenty being sold cause we love our team and the management team and the atractive football and no of course nobody was going to wait to buy there ticket until they seen if he signed i was only letting out what i was told bro. Anyway n let's look forward to an exciting season.
6.) 03 Jun 2016 12:34:06
To be fair you did say that his name has been used to sell season tickets.
7.) 03 Jun 2016 22:04:06
Yes Mprent8422 but Not by the club but From other people that has intrest and money in club put on Twitter and Some sites, can't say anymore but it Might come out anyway but My main point was he was never going to be coming wasn't even a name we were after couldn't afford his wages for a start saying that if he was willing ti take a massive drop i would love ti see him at ibrox but Like i said never a go a non starter would love for that to change but Not possible unless a lot would have to change first, and was only showing that the person who i speak to was spot on in the past aswell that was more my point and post anyway, but Bring on next season.
8.) 03 Jun 2016 21:15:56
Don't believe they would start a rumour of signing kolo toure just to sell tickets lol taking it a bit far to say that.
20 Oct 2016 13:51:48
It's getting close again.
Personally I feel we have a more than decent chance guys despite all the negativity it's worth remembering we have only lost away to them and the sheep all season.
We are starting to Gel and the return of Holt adding steel to our midfield along with Halliday has been pleasing, our main problems have been converting chances but we are getting there.
Remember they have a terrible record at Hampden with the majority of the current squad, we will be fresher and keen to make up for horror show lto, i'm going for a 2-1 win.
The team I think Warbs will play is:
Fods just ahead of cup Keeper Gilks
Back 4 of Waldo, Wilson, Kiernan and Tav
Midfield of Holt, Halliday and Krancjar and McKay, a Miller and Waghorn up top.
Team I would pick personally would be:
Fod, Waldo, Wilson, Hill and Tav
Rossiter or Windass plus Holt and Halliday
McKay, a Miller and MOH.
1.) 20 Oct 2016 15:09:04
waggy shouldn't be anywhere near the starting 11.
id rather we play moh tomorrow and give him a shout with his pace and see what he can do if nothing in the first half then bring on forrester in the second! or the other way around.
2.) 20 Oct 2016 15:55:37
No Waggers but i'm assuming McKay makes your team? Both have been poor in recent games.
3.) 20 Oct 2016 17:06:29
Wilson is injured. Although that's not the only issue, they are miles ahead. Let's stop kidding.
Anything can happen in a one off game and I do think it will be more of a game this time, but can't see is winning. No matter how hard I try.
Ps my money is on Torre man of the match, always the way in football.
4.) 20 Oct 2016 17:37:26
Listen guys, we all know celtic are rightly big favourites and should win but I've witnessed over many years of watching rangers, that it doesn't always pan out like that. So let's get behind the glasgow rangers and see where it takes us. I'm fortunate to be going to hampden on sunday and will be getting right behind the bears! let's give it our all and leave everything on that park, they're not real madrid or barca. I do think we'll see a massive improvement in us, to when we played them in september. All we can ask our team is give it everything and what will be, will be. I'm certainly not ruling it out that we can beat them! COMMON THE TEDDY BEARS!
5.) 20 Oct 2016 17:58:12
Waggy deserves his chance after missing out last 2 old firms .2-1 gers hallidays n waggy goals.
6.) 20 Oct 2016 19:31:29
Ive never bn a MOH fan but if ever ther was a game to play him its this 1,theres going to be times when we're under the cosh and he could b the perfect outball,
7.) 20 Oct 2016 20:23:55
Bluedie, that is a cracking shout mate. MOH is so suited to the kind of game this is most likely going to be on sunday. The out ball is perfect for moh's game as we all know that we'll be under a fair bit of pressure at times, from them on sunday. This then would be a game tailor made for moh. Need any reminding bears? Well just think back to when he ripped us apart playing for St. johnstone in the league cup last season. This could be his type of game. Got me thinking bluedie. I actually know some of his family and he's a bit miffed and disappointed by not getting a chance and run of games. Honestly guys he's desparate to being a success with rangers and still talks highly of rangers. He's desparate to be a first team regular with us! Remember i was the poster on here way back in august last year who told everyone on here he was going to be signing with us in january and that it was only down to the clubs agreeing the fee. Michael's a great lad and really good player imo with a very nice, supporting family behind him!
8.) 20 Oct 2016 21:14:37
U still going on about that lol.
9.) 20 Oct 2016 21:59:36
Yes bigblue ayr, it was my claim to fame. lol.
10.) 20 Oct 2016 22:06:34
Big blue Ayr
I agree with you :
Warburton 15 or Supercooper 11 will have that on his grave stone
I Told You About MOH
As the song says in Frozen Let it Go!
11.) 21 oct 2016 04:49:46
it could be the making of him supercoop because the boys in desperate need of a confidence boost and hopefully this could be it. on another note i absolutely love our king kenny and imo should definitely start but not in a million years at wide right, leave that for moh to try and keep wee tierny hemmed in abit because he's a big part of there attacking play. come on bears 🙏.
12.) 20 Oct 2016 23:54:38
Celtic have been found out in Europe and as happens with Brenda's teams the wheels tend to come off. They've had a surge in form when he arrived plus Sinclair and Dembele but that European defeat will dent their confidence.
We're slowly getting better. I just wish Warburton would give (when fit) the like of Windass a run in the team. I don't know who's fit and who isn't, but my starting XI for Sunday would be (4-3-3 as that's what he plays) :
Foderingham; Tavernier, Wilson, Hill, Wallace; Halliday, Kranjcar, Holt; Windass, Miller, Mackay. Kranjcar and Miller can be brought off after an hour or more depending on if they've anything left in the tank and use Rossiter, Garner and O'Halloran as key subs.
Would have Waghorn on the bench too but he should be dropped. 3-1 Rangers with Miller (2) and Windass to score! Honest, I haven't had a drink yet!
13.) 20 Oct 2016 23:00:11
Our Central defence is a major problem and for that reason I would sacrifice a forward and play with a sweeper. Either Crooks or Rossiter. Would probably go without McKay. He will probably crap out of tackles in any event!
14.) 21 Oct 2016 09:26:37
Pmsl bongo! Your post had my sides splitting! Good funny banter which a lot of us on here tend to forget at times. I really enjoy this part of it on here as i do the football, difference of opinion serious stuff. So once again bongo, cheers for that mate!
10 Sep 2016 09:33:39
Old Firm day has arrived 😃 C'mon Rangers 👏🏼🔴⚪️🔵
Reasons we can win:
(1) It is well documented how Poor our defence is with us conceding 4 in 9 games 🤔
Celtic have conceded 7 in their last 4 so are not particularly great there either.
(2) New Goalkeeper, De Vries is expected to start only his 2nd game for the club against a side who have attacking options such as Miller, Garner, Waghorn, McKay, Forrester, O'Halloran, Windass, Tavernier, Krancjar et al to deal with.
(3) Midfield, Celtic have great quality in the wide areas with Sinclair, Forest and Roberts but Biton, Brown and in form Rogic were nowhere near the ball last time sides met with Holt now just returning from injury and Barton likely to replace D Ball in the anchor role Rangers may well dominate in that area again as they did a few months ago.
(4) Grifiths factor, if he's fully fit he's a guaranteed goal for Celtic, if he's not its a massive boost for Rangers and blow for Celtic. Even if he starts his sharpness which makes him the threat he is may be subdued.
(5) The last time we played Forrester and Wagorn were injured and O'Halloran and B King Cup tied so despite totally dominating possession we couldn't create as many chances as we should. Now we have all these guys available and a few other tasty attacking options with Forrester and Waghorn our 2 top scorers both able to play we are bound to score at least 2.
(6) Experience of winning an old firm giving our manager and squad the belief we can do it again, make no mistake Sellik Park will be a different environment for some but the opposition squad in particular is much the same.
(7) Predictably of their line up against our squad who even I've no idea will start.
(8) 2 week break, we had 3 weeks off before Hibs game and we had no sharpness and our passing in particular was terrible due to the mini break. We countered that this time with a comprehensive morale boosting 7-0 friendly win while they rested.
(9) Kenny Miller! He is sitting on 99 Rangers goals and has scored more at Parkhead for Rangers as he did as a Sellik player, it's inevitable he scores his 100th Gers goal and 10th Old Firm goal today.
(10) The pressure is all on them with an apparent comprehensive victory by a margin of at least 4 goals predicted by many fans and pundits, just like the last time.
Roll on 12 Bells 👏🏼🔴⚪️🔵.

The glasgow ranger.
I have a spare hanky for you, used my first one wiping my tears of laughter after reading your drivel, you might need the hanky to wipe away your tears of grief and unhappiness at around 13.50 hours.

Did waghorn and co play v Hamilton and hibs?
3.) 10 Sep 2016 10:25:20
do you post on your own forum? Looked you up there only two posts yet your here every day, here's a piece of advice for you, support your own forum, if we win today you'll go missing for months again and if we don't I'll need to listen to you.

Mon the RANGERS!
5.) 10 Sep 2016 10:54:13
Griffiths guaranteed a goal? Didn't come close last time!
18 Jul 2016 22:23:25
I know many don't like us signing former players or old players but just got me thinking would you like us to bring back Bougherra, Cuellar or neither?
1.) 19 Jul 2016 00:52:42
Preferred Cuellar myself, proper defender, decent on the ball but nothing flashy, great in the tackle. Have my doubts whether either could play to a high enough level through the season though, pushing on a bit and haven´t exactly been regulars for teams in less renowned leagues.
2.) 19 Jul 2016 03:16:16
If we fail to bring Ball back then I wouldn't be against seeing Boughera or Cueller back, where does Cueller play at moment tho?
3.) 19 Jul 2016 06:30:30
I also rated carlos cuellar a better centre half than madjid bougherra although I did rate and like both.
4.) 19 Jul 2016 07:33:24
5.) 19 Jul 2016 09:42:21
No to both. Had their chances and haven't set the world alight recently. I'd like a younger CB to play alongside Hill thanks.
6.) 19 Jul 2016 10:45:18
Davie weir says in his book he really liked Carlos as a defender and a man. I remember singing his song all day long in the weatherspoons pub in Manchester centre, I think if fit he would help any young defender.
7.) 19 Jul 2016 10:44:24
Hi guys with the players we have brought in, I really think that he has something in that magic hat still to come out and it will not be a player of old but we are really in great shape this year
Neither player both have played here and done well but time to move on.
8.) 19 Jul 2016 10:59:18
Cuellar is out of contract to answer the question above. He did play for Almeria in Spanish second div last year but wasn't first choice, managed 18 games. And they were not promoted either.
10 Jul 2016 22:45:43
What's happening with us signing a Centre Half? Focus has been on who the new Striker is recently. I know Warbs stated he is trying to buy a Striker but I have a feeling we might get new striker on loan from Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool or Spurs and use the budget to sign a defender maybe even Dom Ball on a permanent transfer.
Can't wait for this upcoming week to see who we get and to go to Fir Park on Saturday 😀.
1.) 11 Jul 2016 11:04:32
Probably because he knows Dominic Ball is coming back on loan.
10 Jul 2016 11:01:01
After the much publicised break down in talks with Tav and Wags it got me thinking how much would these guys be worth if we were to sell?
I think both have at least 2 seasons left on their contracts so I would be happy to see how they play in top flight before going back to the negotiating table.
Anyway how much do you think they are worth guys?
I would say £1.5m for Tav if he defends better this season in better league his value could double.
Waghorn I think is worth £2m, these are just my opinions let me know what you guys think they are worth.
1.) 10 Jul 2016 11:16:32
Do you honestly think we would get that for either having just come up from the championship in Scotland?
2.) 10 Jul 2016 11:47:47
Yes due to their age, and that Wags went for £3m a few years ago and looks to have career back on track. Cummings has been valued at £1m+ and he has only proved himself in Championship. Wags also has experience playing in top flight in England. As for Tav although he can be poor in defence his free kicks and long shots are exceptional and with the ridiculous sums of cash in England I could see a Championship club paying £1.5m just to add 5-10 goals to their team per season.
3.) 10 Jul 2016 12:37:12
Any profit on the 2 would be good.
4.) 10 Jul 2016 13:06:39
What breakdown in talks is this? The reports I've read have said that they've rejected new terms. There may be more to it but rejecting new terms is vastly different from a breakdown in talks.
Are the papers making it out to be a drama or are we?
5.) 10 Jul 2016 13:50:02
Bruisedbear your manager had a dig at Celtic about paying different wages to certain players, causing disharmony in the dressing room, looks like the overpaying of Barton etc is coming home to roost with last seasons squad unhappy, watch your much vaunted "team spirit" evaporate this year.
6.) 10 Jul 2016 14:14:42
2 players don't make a team. I'll wait for more truth to come out rather than the media bull
7.) 10 Jul 2016 14:17:21
Fair enough however I'm not aware of any team wanting to pay £1m for Cummings so that's just speculation. As for Waghorn and Tavernier I reckon £1m is nearer the mark. Can't see them getting sold in the summer however if new contracts aren't signed by January then I would expect something to happen.
8.) 10 Jul 2016 14:43:04
It may well be the media who have placed that £1m value on Cummings and if he had long term contract I would agree but £500k is probably closer to true value while in final year of his contract.
As for £1m each for Tav and Waghorn that's a fair assessment with both unproven in Scotland top flight, I was just interested in what other fans think their both are worth. Maybe my figures of £1.5m and £2m are closer to what we would accept to sell them rather than what they are actually worth, a bit like Pogba who prob worth £40m but will be sold for £100m if rumours are correct.
9.) 10 Jul 2016 15:03:32
£100m for Pogba is ludicrous. Where will all this madness end?
10.) 10 Jul 2016 18:44:33
You just need to understand economics to understand inflation. Every market on the globe is smaller than the bpl (significant fall off in revenue in other leagues the further you go down the table) to the point where the championship is bigger than our own league. Other clubs look to the epl and know this so they inflate there prices due to how much the epl clubs make. Similar to what people would see as a Rangers tax since we are a big club we automatically need to pay more within Scotland. Only issue is it prices us completely out the market as we have no significant revenue and they know they can bid 10m and get any player they want we would need improved revenue and a board willing to hold onto its stars when big offers come in.
11.) 10 Jul 2016 23:20:36
Right Bears this is how I see the Tavs and Wags situation, at the start of the Lge i'm sure they would've sat down and signed a contract with the understanding that promotion was a must, when promotion was achieved there contracts would re-negotiated! Also step in an Agent, and i'm thinking that both players have the same one tho could be wrong. So whether Barton, Krankjar arrived this situation wouldve been on the horizon, I can't think why a club would approach players to talk about new contract conditions after one season in the CHAMPIONSHIP! Its just sad that the press have tried to turn this into a story about players being envious of other players. So again it would not have mattered who came and what other new signings were earning this conversation was on the cards, I just hope that the lads understand that they still have a bit to do to prove themselves. Regarding their current value Tav 1-1.5m and Wags 1.5-2m but I think these guys under Warbs can get a hell of a lot better and financially help our club. Hate to bring this mob into it but how can Bitton be a 10m player! the transfer market is mental. Anyways Bears alls good at Ibrox, Warbs has the house in order.
09 Sep 2016 10:08:12
Halliday Barton (just ahead of Rossiter due to experience) Toss up between the energy of Windass and the quality of Kranjcar 1 starting the other coming on after 60 mins.
McKay Miller o'Halloran just for sheer pace in behind.
Although leaving Forrester out would be unfair.
I think he will play Halliday Barton Forrester in middle, McKay Miller Waghorn up top but if Holt is ready he will get nod ahead of Forrester who would then replace Wags.
Exciting squad we have and we will win 3-1 Miller to score anytime 🔴⚪️🔵.
25 Aug 2016 11:38:28
Senderos has a fantastic CV and still has the legs at 31 to be a very good player for us.
I am of the opinion (like Warbs) that Wilson and Kieran are good players maybe just not playing together, so either with Senderos might just be the perfect fix.
Like another poster said Senderos has shown an appetite to prove himself despite his great CV and his mentality will fit in with rest of squad.
Garner and Senderos will both be very good additions, onwards and upwards. Top of the League 🏆🔴⚪️🔵.
24 Aug 2016 21:59:27
Senderos deal will (hopefully) be concluded soon, Crooks is back after featuring in 20s match last night that should help at the back for now.
If any1 of interest becomes available on loan at end of transfer window we may act but squad looks good. Only position we are a little light is full back with only Hodson for back up, I know he can play both sides but any injury to the 3 and we have no back up.
23 Aug 2016 21:57:44
I'm happy either way but a little concerned that a deal hasn't been concluded yet to be honest I expected him to be announced today and it's went very quiet on that front.
Was he back in training today? He was definitely in yesterday and went for talks straight after.
31 Jul 2016 00:03:44
I think Halliday, Barton, McKay (just) and Rossiter got pass marks today but the rest were horrible. I'm hoping it's the kick up the RS they need but for me as much as I like Krancjar against better opposition he looks like a luxury player. I think we will be more effective with Barton, Rossiter and Halliday in the centre.
Millers movement and work rate is great but his finishing is poor, Waghorn is another kris Boyd and in the sense that he can rack the goals up against the inferior teams but I'm yet to be convinced he will score against the Sheep, Tims or Jat tarts with his limited ability.
I hope I'm wrong but after seeing a Gers team who have already played 5 games looking so far off the pace against an average Premiership side who are still way off match fitness and sharpness pretty much destroy us I have to admit concern for campaign ahead.
Hopefully we can get a good ch in and we react in right manner to today's setback.
Predicting Gers 2 Hamlton 1 next aWeekend

Don't let the media or their fans kid you they are nothing special and if Grifiths is injured I think we are favourites to win.
We are unbeaten this Season, in the only 2 games we never won we finished much the stronger and should have won. Our defence as bad as it is has only conceded 4 goals, their defence has conceded 7 in the past 4 games.
They have an inexperienced GK playing only his 2nd game, Toure will be shown up for how slow and the lack of mobility he has. Brown can't pass a ball and if Dembele is starting they are Fkd up top.
Sinclair is over rated, he had 1 touch V Hearts, was superb against Motherwell who lost by 2 extra goals by Ronnies team and then he done very little against Hapoel twice who had their main defender and striker injured and are of a similar standard to us. A stonewall pen not given at Sellik Park followed by a Brown goal on the break papered over the cracks, a missed penalty saved the embarrassment of a 3 goal advantage being blown. The round before it was a miracle they drew 1-1 away when opposition outplayed them, the home leg was won only due to 2 penalties, they lost to Red fkn Imps, were cruising 3-0 against St Johnstone before crumbling again conceding 2 before stoppage time goal put gloss on shoreline, similar against the Sheep 2 weeks ago who more than matched them.
The 2 week break doesn't help sharpness or momentum we seen it ourselves after 3 week break prior to Hibs when we couldn't pass the ball.
Their lineup is predictable ours isn't, our manager KNOWS he can beat them, our players know this, pressures on them, we can keep the ball and frustrate when we need to and with McKay, Miller, Forrester, Waghorn, Windass, O'Halloran, Krancjar, Garner et al we have enough Firepower to score plenty!
Bring it on.

Without being biased I genuinely believe Rangers won't score less than 2 judging by Hapoel home and away and St Johnstone in recent games. I would also admit they will score anything between 1-3 if LG plays 1-2 if not.
4/ 6 on BTTS is free money
4/ 1 K Miller to score anytime is got to be worth a bet.

Kenny Miller is and has always been my favourite player at the club. His attitude on and off the park has always been outstanding. As a player he always gives his best and some of his link up play is top notch, he isn't scared to help win ball back even in his own half occasionally and scores important goals especially away from home and against that mob.
My theory why he has never been scoring 30 a season is because he's not a potent penalty box striker who suits our style more when playing with 10 behind the ball.
At International level, European games and against better sides he scores more often as these guys come to play and not defend so he has a higher line to exploit and that's where he can get in behind.
Got to be worth a goal 2m 🔴⚪️🔵.

That's a bit harsh I think, he wears his heart on his sleeve which is a good thing but agree that it could boil over in that atmosphere however I think we should give him a chance of a few games before we see what he's really like.
I'd start K Miller every time against them at celtic park.

McKay on left Miller through the middle and MOH on the right
Forrester in behind with Barton or Rossiter alongside Halliday. If either wide player is struggling put Forrester in there and bring Krancjar on in the number 10 role not to mention Waggy or Garner 🔴⚪️🔵.
