Anyone have any news on the McCrorie injury? He was terrific yesterday once again and we need him 100% fit for Wednesday. This will be a tough game but we are not without a chance as I believe we have played far better this season against teams that come and attack us than we do against teams who sit in and counter!

If McCrorie is out then I’d like to see us set up defensively with 3 at the back and Pena could be useful in this game with more space and time as Hibs come at us!

Pena is a man down it doesn't much how much you try and dress it up. We will need 11 battlers against His, they are a better team than the Sheep and our main threat.


2.) 10 Dec 2017 21:07:37
Pena makes me want to cry every time i watch him. there's so much potential there for him to become a cult hero and be at the club for years but.

Hes just missing that something that can't be coached and i'm afraid that's why he will never be a success at Ibrox.


3.) 11 Dec 2017 01:17:54
Pains me to see Pena play in midfield. No urgency to press teams, no intensity and no work ethic. Said before I'd like to see him upfront with Morelos but at the moment Windass deserves that role. Our big worry for Wednesday is midfield. There will be no McCrorie, Dorrans or Jack potentially. There's nobody left to partner Holt except Barjonas and a severely immobile Kranjcar. Hopefully McCrorie makes the starting 11 though.


4.) 11 Dec 2017 10:41:22
Windass doesn't deserve any role in the team.


5.) 11 Dec 2017 10:50:21
Windass has came onto a game recently. He's definitely benefited from pedro leaving and murty coming in. Again, he has scored vital goals recently, and he puts a shift in.


6.) 11 Dec 2017 11:56:32
I disagree, Windass is nowhere near Rangers class and is lazy unless running forward and at least 3 times on Saturday made the wrong choice of pass to play in goal scoring situations,


7.) 11 Dec 2017 15:04:42
What games are you watching?! He's been one of the better players in the team recently.
He's 23, get a grip and get behind him and the team instead of criticising all the time. Your just finding things to moan about.


8.) 11 Dec 2017 17:52:23
We missed ryan jack against ross county on saturday and will without question, miss him even more, against hibs at ER on wednesday evening! Especially as jack would have been tracking hibs best midfielder, john mcginn! He's a massive threat to us and a very good midfielder!

Ryan jack would have had the job to put the bite on mcginn and if he was able to, would have went a long way to us beating them on wednesday! Jack is a very important player for us and we will miss him badly in this game! His hard work in our midfield, sometimes goes unnoticed at times by our supporters! He's a future club captain in the making!


9.) 11 Dec 2017 17:58:14
Cult heroes are usually just pish players with a bit of character, best getting rid.


10.) 11 Dec 2017 18:02:04
Well I agree with ally rangers., windass is a much improved player but could do more. it’s night / day compared to what he was like last season


11.) 12 Dec 2017 07:58:08
Broony is my favourite Celtic cult hero 👍

Looking forward to the game tomorrow. Ibrox has been in unhappy hunting ground for us this season but I think we can lift the roof of its rafters and let Graeme Murty know how much we appreciate his efforts so far. Those were 2 fantastic results last week and he deserves our backing.

I honestly believe there will be no looking back from here, Hibs are the biggest threat to our chances of 2nd this season IMO and we need to get this 3 matches in a row monkey of our back heading into the Hibs game!

Hopefully a rousing performance from the players and bang average McInnes will soon be forgotten

Mon the bears!

1.) 08 Dec 2017 18:02:43
Does anyone know if Dorrans or alves will be fit tomorrow?

I like the look and shape of the team just now. Murty has them playing well. Agreed wee bear - a win tomorrow to keep me momentum going ahead of Hibs game 👍


2.) 08 Dec 2017 19:31:35
Said on STV Alves is back in contention.


3.) 08 Dec 2017 19:59:28
Hope not the team has been doing well without them. With jacks suspension I think dorrans will be in the middle with holt. We shall see. I don't think alves will get much game time under murty and he might possibly ask to move on in january.


4.) 08 Dec 2017 23:58:44
Your right Fod.
Why play your best defender?


5.) 09 Dec 2017 08:50:58
Graeme Murty said in his press conference, Dorrans will be seeing a specialist about his injury so sounds like he is a way off returning to the team. I think Bar jonas should be given a chance in place of Jack but it will probably be a change of formation with Candeias starting.


6.) 09 Dec 2017 08:51:33
Dorrans isn’t near fit. Seeing a specialist soon was what Murty said in the press conference. I hope young Barjonas gets a game.

I see Pedro was announced Manager of Cruz Azul in Mexico yesterday, maybe this has contributed to the delay while the financial side of his settlement were sorted out? He could potentially have been on gardening leave for the rest of his contract should we not have paid him up. Either way I have no issue with the board taking their time to make sure they get the appointment correct. I do find it strange however that after all this time they have come up with McInnes as the answer! Very much a fingers crossed appointment for me 🤞🏼

1.) 06 Dec 2017 13:04:01
Didn't dave king say weeks ago that the compensation package for ped was sorted, yet you still feel the need to suggest that it wasn't. Every appointment will be fingers crossed unless we get a top top manager with plenty of cash to spend. DM is the best appointment out there for us and is the better option of all the names that were thrown about.


 

 

03 Dec 2017 23:49:38
I don’t get this crap about McInnes being the best man for the job, the way I see it is if I was a Motherwell or Hearts fan and my club appointed McInnes then I would think that’s an ok appointment. I certainly wouldn’t be thinking WOW that’s a fantastic appointment. It’s so average it’s not real and as I’ve said many times before I’d much prefer to keep Murty in caretaker role until an OUTSTANDING candidate becomes available or until such times as good results dictate that he be given it permanent on a 1yr rolling deal. (12 from 18 not bad but improvement required to earn that deal)

What’s everyone’s thoughts on tomorrow?

I think we will squeak it in a tight game, 2-1 with Morelos and Jack the scorers!

My line up would read:


Foderingham

Tavernier
Alves
Wilson
John

Holt
McCrorie
Jack

Windass
Pena

Morelos

4-3-2-1

Moan the Gers!

Is morales not injured?


2.) 02 Dec 2017 20:58:01
If he is then we will have to stick with Miller but in Jan that should read Moult!


3.) 03 Dec 2017 10:40:56
Maybe just me weebear but moult reminds me of Boyd. Goals a plenty, but not a lot when it's needed against e. g Celtic!


4.) 03 Dec 2017 11:09:01
He’ll fit right in with McInnes then! 😬


5.) 03 Dec 2017 11:31:42
Moult has scored more goals against Celtic in a single game than Boyd scored vs them his whole career.

No room for wingers in the diamond formation, finally we are playing a system that suits the squad assembled! I’d say our only winger is Candeias and he can be useful from the bench or if we go to 5 in midfield. I think our priority positions are CM and centre forward.

Morelos needs a partner up top, someone with pace to stretch the defences of our opposition.

For CM we need someone in there with Ryan Jack, I sincerely hope Barjonas goes on and makes the position his own and he will have the rest of the season to do so as I don’t think there will be much spending in Jan!

1. Players had to be moved on the release pressure on the wage bill. Basic principle of supply and demand meant they went for less than they are probably worth.

2. Appointment of Pedro was a complete mistake but his squad this season are certainly better than last seasons in my opinion and if we go on to get 2nd then it’s job done for this season.

3. No mismanagement of McInnes that I can see, the board have bided their time for whatever reason be it financial or otherwise and when they’ve made an approach he hasn’t wanted to speak. What more could they have done other than make the move quicker which may have been impossible unless the resolution was passed at the AGM. This doesn’t even take into account the fact we may have been negotiating Pedro’s termination during this period.

4. The statement was ill advised so soon after McInnes statement from Aberdeen and Rangers board should have held court much like they have done throughout the process so far. Jim Traynor should walk for this. He is not required at Rangers moving forward IMO.

5. Plan B may be to wait until an outstanding candidate becomes available. I don’t see any point in going for someone who isn’t going to blow the fans away just for the sake of getting someone in. Much better to stick with Murty until the end of the season unless someone becomes available that is an outstanding candidate. You never know, if Murty can 14-15 points from the next 6 I think most fans would be happy for him to get it permenant.

Maybe I’m different Fod, but I was a teenager during the glory days and remember them fondly, especially Parma game, Amato header in 2-2 game, Gaza diving header in 96 etc. but when I rock up at ibrox these days or count the hours till we kick off on the tele, the feelings still run deep and I have the same excitement in my bones, sure it would be brilliant to be where we were in the 90’s but I’m absolutely buzzing for tomorrow and I started this week flat as a pancake at the thought of Derek McInnes being handed a three year deal. We can get 2nd this season I have no doubt, smart investment of the £800k that we were so happy to splurge on McInnes and a united support behind Murty will see us to 2nd and hopefully we get off to a good start tomorrow!

He is a mug, never deserved the opportunity and he’ll be lucky to finish above Hibs in 3rd IMO. Murty remains in caretaker and if results stay good then 1 year rolling contract for the man!

No Europe for Aberdeen any time soon!

Personally I’m glad we’ve held off as we have had a decent points return in that period (not excellent though) where as theirs has been shocking! A fantastic platform for him to build on and I’m not being unfair when I say I expect a points haul of 65pts minimum from here as that is what I think Murty would achieve if left in caretaker till the end of the season.

Agree lads, give McCrorie 2 years in the first team then give him the armband in the meantime I’d wouldn’t have a problem with Wilson, Dorrans, Alves or Jack

Totally agree lads, let’s not get on his back too much should we have a couple of bad results though!

2-0 on Saturday would be just lovely!

If Warburton had been more pragmatic then he might have lasted long enough to find out how much backing he would have been given in a Europa League qualifying campaign. As it turned out he wasn’t and was rightfully moved on IMO. Pedro again was rightfully moved on after a truly shocking semi vs Motherwell, one thing the board cannot be held for is bottling a big (but correct) decision.

Keep Believing!

I think you are harsh Lee_mcF, Murty has done well in my opinion under difficult circumstances on both occasions in the caretaker role. he has not had the luxury of being able to sign players or the authority to speak about the future due to the nature of his position. Were you a McInnes backer? I certainly wasn’t and am glad our search for manager befitting of our great club continues!

In the meantime I’ll set Graeme Murty the same target I was willing to set McInnes, 2nd place with a total of 65-70pts. With no Gio van B or the like on the horizon just yet then Murty is a good as any of the average Joes being banded about at present!

Defo Mr Cruikshanks, he gets better every game, a stand out this season! Like all young players he is bound to make mistakes but he it the type of player that teams can be built around, much like Tierney at Celtic, sign him up long term Stewart Robertson!
