Great news - Morelos signs an extension to his contract.

True Blue

1.) 08 Mar 2019 12:18:22
Makes no odds he’ll b gone in the summer regardless. Wouldn’t b surprised if the new contract has a 20m buy out clause. Glad we have done this tho as it’s about time we started demanding £ which represents what our players r worth!


2.) 08 Mar 2019 13:00:57
Correct S14 - it's very decent of him to sign that and very wise of the club to prepare so vigilantly.


3.) 08 Mar 2019 13:08:49
S14 - but it does make a difference.

and the manner in which Morelos has signed the extension was marvellous - he does seem a really nice passionate and honourable man -- very well done to him!


4.) 08 Mar 2019 13:34:29
Good bit of business by the club, making sure we'll get top dollar for him. Hopefully a sell on clause included in the new contract too.


5.) 08 Mar 2019 13:39:33
I agree true blue. He is passionate and that's what gets him into bother. I don't mind that it gets him into bother though. Obviously we miss him, but I'd rather have a passionate player. He's ambitious too, and I don't mind him having that either, some move for the money, he seems the type who wants to move to test himself against the best, and to be the best too. He has an aim, and if we reap the benefits of him achieving that, both on and off the field, then it great.


6.) 08 Mar 2019 13:44:50
I see where you are coming from, SQ14, my hope is we will get one more season from him, however giving the lad an increased wage and possibly inserting sell on clause is great business.
At least mark Allen and others are looking after our interests.


7.) 08 Mar 2019 14:43:15
He will more than likely be off in the summer! I’m glad he’s signed on and we can get what he’s worth in the window if he goes! He’s a fine player and a commodity for us! We need to start getting proper coin for our guys if they have to leave! They rhats over the road get good money for guys who are substandard! It’s about time we started following suit imo!


8.) 08 Mar 2019 16:44:17
Before signing this I thought he was 100% away in the Summer. Now there’s a glimmer of hope that he may just stay for 1 more season.
Maybe there’s a release clause inserted allowing him to move at end of next season or at the least a release clause of £20m for him to leave now.
Maybe Stevie G has managed to convince him that spending another season playing regularly is the best thing for his career at this stage.
Listen I’m not saying he will definitely stay behind the summer just that now there’s a chance that he might.


9.) 08 Mar 2019 17:35:26
Great work but I'm not a fan of release clauses (if there is one) . If you have 3 clubs interested they all just offer the minimum price. We can't have a bidding war which is the best way to get top money. 3 bids of different value allows you to negotiate with the club's making offers.


10.) 08 Mar 2019 21:47:53
After his last 2 games his value has went from 20 to 4 mill lol.


11.) 09 Mar 2019 14:55:23
He has been garbage of late - looks like he's completely spent at Ibrox and wants to leave. And that's fine. As long as we get lots of chinyen.


12.) 11 Mar 2019 15:05:41
Rfcrb1872 - yeah 4 goals in a game, garbage mate, looks spent. ARE YOU ON CRACK?

According to the Daily Star Brenda wants Morelos - no mention of cost.

They also mention that he wants Elif Elmas, 19 Elif Elmas for £30 million.

It would now seem that interest is starting to simmer - I still think that £30 million is the bar.

1.) 05 Mar 2019 09:19:13
Steady, no way will we get thirty.


2.) 05 Mar 2019 09:50:09
How about a swap deal with Liverpool for Kent + £18 million.


3.) 05 Mar 2019 11:34:53
I would take 30mil or kent and 18mil in a heartbeat but I'm realist so👍.


4.) 05 Mar 2019 12:09:30
Apparently Stewart Robertson has come out and said we rate him at the same as Dembele which is 20m.


5.) 05 Mar 2019 12:55:28

6.) 05 Mar 2019 14:10:43

7.) 05 Mar 2019 20:38:12
I think 30M not beyond bounds of impossibility. Know its Scotland elsewhere transaction but recent English transactions are touching 40-50M mark.


8.) 05 Mar 2019 22:34:38
So many on here living in fantasyland morelos in same team as salah and mane and firmino unbelievable.


9.) 06 Mar 2019 10:23:20
30 million for Morelos, £12 million with adding maybe, as Harry Neilson said ( give ‘s a break )


10.) 06 Mar 2019 18:17:00
A lot will depend on what the buffalo wants get a want 15 mill
Plus the guy celtic have on loan
Thus keeping a bigger percentage
Of the fee due to still owing
10 per cent to the finns.


11.) 06 Mar 2019 21:02:35
Are some of you on the Davie Weir? £30 Million 😂😂 Give yourself a shake 😂😂😂😂.

Liam Hassim (Larne FC) invited to train at Auchentowie - good move? Midfield sensation?

So many players being linked with RFC bit hard to keep up - but happier to see us linked with younger players - too many 35+ being linked.

Quite a few folk getting their knickers in a twist over my post which mentioned young McCrorie as a potential captain in waiting and being a CB.

It is all about opinions (and stats)

McCrorie played CB 21 times in the premiership for Rangers last season and never lost a game.

Football is stressful, at all levels, but rank that up to be playing for Rangers and it is much much higher - McCrorie was 19/ 20 when he played in that position, and possibly it was too much, but remember he played very well, and maybe SG made the comments about this young lad's position was a challenge - after all it was such a very strange comment to make on one so young - only time will tell.

Katic also wants that position, so maybe the two of them working and training together will bring about the improvement we all want and need.

PS - Strange that Kilmarnock are very quiet on Broadfoot stud raking Morelos apart from one of them stating that Morelos made him do it? lol.

True Blue

1.) 19 Mar 2019 12:25:05
Other than when we lost 2-0 at home to Celtic you mean. He May very well end up as a CB but currently it doesn’t appear to be his best position.


2.) 19 Mar 2019 12:48:07
Ger78 - did he play in that game?

His stats on soccer base states that he played 21 games and suffered one defeat in Europe and was undefeated in Scotland.

And some of the headlines if you look back made him the main drive as CB, against Aberdeen, hibs and celtic.


3.) 19 Mar 2019 13:09:08
Yes he did, he did ok however for one of the goals (the first I think) he took a swip at the ball at the edge of the box after a corner, missed it and they scored. Anyway that’s not really the point, as I say I do think that he may end up as a CB and I feel that he may actually work well in a back 3 just now as can bring the ball out from the back, however I agree that, currently anyway, he’s still not dominant enough to play CB in a back 4.


4.) 19 Mar 2019 13:12:49
Plus your kind of contradicting yourself saying he was the ‘main CB drive’ against Celtic seeing as we lost every game to Celtic last year?!
And I wouldn’t rely on a site called soccer base for your stats. For a start it calls the game ‘soccer’.


5.) 19 Mar 2019 13:29:18
That was McCrorie first start for Rangers - he has come a long way from then.


6.) 19 Mar 2019 15:13:43
I agree he has, and I’m not trying to get at you at all True Blue, it’s just that I see it a lot on here when statements are given as fact when they’re not actually fully accurate. That’s the kind of thing that the Scottish press and folk like Michael Stewart and now Kris Boyd tend to do!
We can also tend to make sweeping statements either building players up or knocking them down far too quickly.
We’ve had Barisic going from ‘the best left back ever’ to useless sell him in a few months, Morelos going from useless last year to £20million at least in under a season from some folk. I even had a debate preseason with someone on here that stated Flanagan was going to be first choice right back and was an amazing player to which I stated Tav was first choice right back and would remain so and Flanagan had a lot to prove as it was 4 years ago that he was a great player. Point being none of us see these players day in day out at training or know who is best for which position we can only suggest on what we see during the games. Like you I do feel eventually Mccrorie will become a centre back but as we’ve seen with Worrall and Katic, young centre backs can be prone to mistakes and we all know what our fan base can be like when someone makes a mistake! Playing him at CB week in week out just now could end up destroying his confidence and putting back his development. He has bulked up and toughened up a bit this year which is good as in this league you need strength up against some of the bruisers other teams have up front. In time he’ll make a great CB but maybe not just yet.


7.) 19 Mar 2019 17:00:44
He didn't play 21 games at cb. 21 games all in the first 4 or 5 at cb before moving to midfield. He's a different animal in there, twice as effective as he is at the back.


8.) 19 Mar 2019 17:02:56
Ger78 - I agree what you have said and take your points but McCrorie has went from playing every week to not be played at all. Being slated publicly by SG does not seem to have been the ideal method of encouraging this young man, and some of the players who have taken his place really does seem strange, but as you say we do not see the training or attitudes.
It would now seem that we have an abundance of young players, for various positions, who are not getting game time, and if they have not been sent out on loan you would think that they will be played. I presume that SG will be giving them that time soon.
I still think SG is the man to turn around Rangers and once he has moved some on and brought in better we should get a better picture of whom he sees as his first team players.


9.) 19 Mar 2019 17:07:04
As I’ve said before True Blue you do talk sense in your texts, others do the same, ArthurD can be sensible as well so this site is not full of excitable guys ranting and raving, I enjoy some of the banter etc.


10.) 19 Mar 2019 17:42:48
Ulsterman - I like a debate and always put my hand up when proved wrong or in err, but I do not like, as you say, these one line poo pooers - who add little to the discussion other than trying to wind up everyone.

Have not saw you posting about the Morelos situation (Broadfoot boot scraping his achilles) and Kilmarnock player saying Morelos started it! lol.


11.) 19 Mar 2019 22:21:21
To be fair guys I think discussing Mcrorie right now is irrelevant anyway unfortunately.
I am far more concerned about the midfielders that have been keeping him out of the team.
Nobody has put their stamp on that midfield, nobody takes control or takes responsibility to run the show.
The debate about Mcrorie, for me anchor man all day long far more effective there.
I am pretty sure he was sent off against them last season at Ibrox as a CB, then again I think he was sent off against St mirren from midfield this season.
All season long teams have been winning the midfield battle against us because we don't have an enforcer.
Ryan Jack decent player, not an enforcer, Arfield sometimes shows up for games, creative not an enforcer, Kamara early days, tidy player again not an enforcer.
Nobody grabs the bull by the horns and drives the team on.
I think Mcrorie gets about, snaps into tackles, he is strong and resilient, he is mobile and young, so in my opinion I think he should be getting games instead of 1 of these other players.
Notice how I haven't even mentioned Davis, well that's as much as I can say about Davis.
Gerrard doesn't do himself or the players any favours though, all season long, questionable line ups, questionable subs and tactics.
He has messed about far too often for my liking. I don't know about everyone else but a steady partnership at the back and in midfield works better when your not chopping and changing things all the time.
Also about 6 million roughly spent between Grezda, Barisic and Katic, these guys are not doing it.
I will give Katic the benefit of the doubt as I do think there is a really good player there but he wasn't trusted after the great start he had and let's face it weather he has had a couple of bad games or not, Worral has been shocking more often than not.
Rant over.


12.) 19 Mar 2019 23:20:14
Never seen the incident True blue so can’t comment, I will only comment on things I know a bit about, but he’s well named broad- foot.


13.) 20 Mar 2019 15:28:40
Broadfoot must have learnt his ‘trade’ somewhere before Killie.


 

 

18 Mar 2019 19:04:20
Oh my, I have taken my time before posting anything over the past few days, as all I have read is Gerard is no good, and Morelos is petulant.

We really ALL need a reality check - Gerard IS the man for the job, and Morelos IS petulant when PROVOKED!

SG signed a three year deal and IMHO is doing a good job, having to come in and build a completely new team.

Rangers like every other team in our league go out each week and ply their trade hoping that every game is a win, but it is not a given, it must be earned. We are in second place, 8 points above Aberdeen.

It is unfortunate that teams, like Aberdeen, Hibs, Celtic and now Kilmarnock, play against us as though their very lives depend upon it, but that is life and we must use that as our motivation.

Morelos is a marvellous player and sadly we may never see the best of him until he goes down south, and is played in a partnership up front. Other managers now use his petulance against him and target him, they will never admit to this but we ALL know that this is the truth. It is up to him how he deals with this and the referees job to protect him.

It is now obvious to everyone that we need a strong, solid, robust CB - Gough would do very well, so he would, but he is long gone, and Katic says he is being mentored by him, but now is the time to bring back young McCrorie, our future captain, IMHO, and let him build his future and ours together with him being the motivator and focal point at the back.

The money we get from Morelos in the summer should be used to bring in a top class striker.

Finally, I do not see OUR Rangers future as being dismal and bleak but see it as a challenge, a challenge that WE ALL should embrace and look forward to not with trepidation but with desire and pride - The BBC, the media, and most premiership teams want us to fail, but we ALL know that we will NEVER SURRENDER!

God Bless.

8.) 18 Mar 2019 22:15:34
I agree with the need for a strong dominant CB but mccrorie isn't the answer. Katic is young and still learning but given time and patience could be a strong CB. Possible part of a back 3. Him goldson and strong dominant CB in between them. Like gough or butcher type. Would have mccrorie, kamara and jack as a central midfield 3 just leaves wingers and strike options.


9.) 18 Mar 2019 22:30:04

Talent = desire, commitment and heart.

When SG rebuilds the team in the summer he needs ensure that his new signings have these attributes in abundance.

We want and need players who will fight for the jersey.

We also NEED a captain!

True Blue

1.) 13 Mar 2019 10:15:45
True blue
I think we have a good captain at the club “ Jack “? Maybe few agree but in my humble opinion he has the material to do the job?


2.) 13 Mar 2019 10:27:47
Ulsterman - a captain motivates his players, shirricks them when necessary and gets results.

Jack may be 'the captain' at the moment and perhaps the players he has around him are not up to his 'standard' or refuse to listen or he is not communicating.

I do not want a 'Paul McStay' type captain, I want a captain who cajoles, shouts, gets angry and boots arses, and where necessary consoles and puts an arm round the shoulder.

We either have the right 'captain' and the wrong players or.?


3.) 13 Mar 2019 11:26:16
True blue
Is there any player in the Scottish league that would meet your expectations? Your desire for a player like you say is of course right, but where would we find him? Have you some one in mind already at the club?
The team is certainly lacking a true leader as you say, but with our finances he will be hard to find.


4.) 13 Mar 2019 12:53:56
Ulsterman

In my day a team was built by the spine first -

Goalkeeper - centreback / captain - midfielder - striker

T Butcher / R Gough

I presume SG now knows this and also presume that our director of football knows this as well, so I fully expect SG with the full weight of the boardroom to sort this out, this summer.

I do not know who is out there that can become our captain - but he is out there waiting for the call.

Finally, I have mentioned many a time that desire and commitment is as important as skill and it was that desire and commitment that saw us draw with hibs and get beat last night.

The only good thing that will come out of last night and the past week will be the players understanding of what they have not achieved, the hurt they have caused and the desire and commitment they need.


 

 

09 Mar 2019 09:15:36
I stated yesterday that hibs and aberdeen lie down against cfc - and reserve their best games only for Rangers.

Last night hibs played as though their very life depended on it - I have never seen so many last man tackles or men throwing themselves in front of the ball - I have never ever seen any these two teams play against cfc in this way, or any other for that matter other than Rangers.

It may sound like sour grapes, but I stated this before last nights game.

True Blue

1.) 09 Mar 2019 10:42:50
I think a lot if that had to do with confidence. Hibs and Aberdeen go into games against us 100% believing they can get the points. Not so much when they're playing Celtic. There's no conspiracy going on.


2.) 09 Mar 2019 11:35:31
Hibs have taken more points off us than you have and McInnes hates us with a passion, which is evident from the pain in his face when we cuff them. However, don't let that get in the way of your cospiracy theory.


3.) 09 Mar 2019 12:54:02
LemmonAtWork - you mentioned conspiracy - I haven't. I questioned that their commitment against cfc is not the same as their commitment against Rangers - last night confirms my belief and todays no contest will confirm that belief.

If you saw the last cfc v hibs game - hibs lacked everything on the park and I do not remember seeing them go forward or having a shot at goal - no belief, no commitment and no heart!


4.) 09 Mar 2019 12:55:13
To be be fair they were only able to get back in the game because once again we didn't kill them off, that's the 3rd game against them this season which we should have won comfortably, 6 points dropped to hibs alone, we only have ourselves to blame. To be fair I don't actually see celtic dropping points but I still see us dropping more points. The cup is the only hope and even then I don't see it, personally I think we will be lucky to beat Aberdeen. Before people say don't be so negative, I am only being realistic because we are not consistent enough and a lot of our players just don't have that winning mentality to many turn up here and there, nobody commands that team when the chips are down. Upside is we clearly have a decent foundation going into next season add some quality in the right areas but a must is replacing Morelos because Lafferty and Defoe are not good enough to be our main striker.

Think some people on here need to take a pill and lie down. Everyone knew it would take three - five years.

Anyone who watched the game last night will have saw a brilliant first half from Rangers up against a die-hard hibs who played us as though their very life depended upon it. We flagged in the second half something that we have been doing all season - which SG needs to deal with.

We are close to a winning side - we need a striker and a captain.
