Early days but I'm a wee bit worried about Russell martin his days as a right back probably behind him although comfortable playing center back I don't feel he is commanding enough and maybe not the quickest. With murtys comments about Bruno being an important player between now and end of season, I really don't fancy these 2 together with their lack of pace.

Was the partnership of ALves and cardoso really that bad? I don't think it was and I'd rather have them two together then Martin and bates. But who ever plays Alves should deff get put back in in my opinion.

2.) 20 Feb 2018 19:00:06
Martin and Bates by far best option currently and for remainder of season. Martin did no have his best game at Hamilton but think the pitch contributed to that. Longer term Bates and McClorie the best partnership available.

3.) 20 Feb 2018 21:50:51
I disagree think Alves over Martin all day long and think cardoso will turn into a better defender than bates if he could get a run.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 23:29:49
Spoke to ex pro Gers man who stated Mark Alens wages are paid by a group of five millionaires.
He also stated that he has five players lined up for every position and its down to the manager who he picks .
Man city's loss is our gain, City just wanted to splash the cash and that is not Mark Allens game, we have def won a watch with him .

{Ed033's Note - Have you won an Omega?

5.) 20 Feb 2018 23:32:45
Would like to see Alves any day, could bring best out of Bates who just needs, fine tuning .

6.) 21 Feb 2018 08:38:44
Plastic pitches were the bain of our lives climbing up the leagues - some of our worst result (Alloa! ) were on these crap pitches.
Martin to me - looked like Bambi on the stuff - his clearance for the second goal took forever and eventually he fluffed it.
Templeton apparentyly done his knees in on plastic and now plays on it every second week - how does that work?

7.) 21 Feb 2018 11:12:34
I think McCrorie is a defensive midfielder and we shouldn’t be tinkering with his position.



19 Feb 2018 22:27:03
Cardoso apparently not happy with lack of game time, that's fine but he must do better when given a chance. he has a decent touch etc but basic defending is poor, gets bullied too often and celebrates if he wins a rare header.

1.) 20 Feb 2018 00:20:48
I’d give him a shot with Bates. Not been particularly impressed with Martin if I’m honest. 2 pantries given away already for handballs 😂

2.) 20 Feb 2018 01:01:54
Pantries 😂😂 obviously meant to be panalties**

3.) 20 Feb 2018 08:25:57
Cardoso has had his chance, he’s brutal.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 09:20:14
Martin was very poor on Sunday however both penalties were very harsh. How can it be deliberate handball when the ball was blasted at him from 2 yards? His reactions aren’t that fast to make it deliberate. Even more ridiculous was to get booked for it too

5.) 20 Feb 2018 11:59:04
Very harsh penalties to be honest but I still agree he hAsn't been rest and is quite slow but he is a smart player and reads the game well just afraid that he may be just off the pace of some of the Celtic players but cardosso is quicker but not as smart as Martin so what's worse?
I think mcrorie and Bates would team up well and if given this season to gel will brilliant together next season? Thoughts?

6.) 20 Feb 2018 15:12:42
To be fair both pens were really unfortunate imo. He is throwing himself in front of the shot in both cases. Not a lot he could do. I don't think Martin has done a lot wrong so far tbh.

7.) 20 Feb 2018 18:01:55
A good center back usually doesn't need to find himself lunging in last gasp in those situations.

8.) 20 Feb 2018 19:00:13
Guys love the optimism but calm down. Let's get the 2 games vs hearts and St Johnstone out the way 1st. I can see us dropping points in both games given how ropey our defence is. If we take 6 points then is the time to ramp up the pressure going into the game on the 11th.

I can see us going into the game easily 11 points or worse behind.

Now if we had a proper manager things may be different, then again we would probably be clear at the top

9.) 21 Feb 2018 11:27:20
Have to disagree bgate. When I played I was told by every coach to get my body in the way of the ball. Basic defending. Every one of the world's best defenders made a living out of it



05 Feb 2018 16:48:52
Really worried about Saturdays performance as I too thought we missed jack and mccrorrie! More worrying for me is jack could be out for season after waiting a month before we realised he needed an operation, now hearing mcrorie to see specialist again this week I get a déjà vu feeling.

1.) 05 Feb 2018 17:14:37
Let's just see if wee get a response v partick and hope murty can change a game when it's not going our way a bit earlier than the 70 minute mark

2.) 06 Feb 2018 15:01:08
If the game against Partick isn't going our way after 70 mins then we do have a problem! Heres hoping JW plays a blinder - c'mon the gers!

Sun reporting the loaf wants to take wes foderingham to Forrest! Hope he wants keirnan and Forrester too! Would raise funds for Walker maybe full back!

bgate w

1.) 19 Jul 2017 23:48:49
Bgate I honestly don't think we need to raise funds, it's just that we are not prepared to pay an extra 40-50% of our original bid.
We should stick to our bid of 500k I don't even want us to go to 600k. Why pay 1m for a Player when come near the end of the Transfer Window i'm sure Hearts WILL do business with us as I do not think Budge will let 500k dissappear and keep an unhappy player at the Club for him to sign a pre-contract in Jan OR try to sell in Jan for prob less than 500k. They need the cash and just because we could afford 1m does not mean we pay it. Big difference in fee for only waiting weeks, cash saved can be used for either another Transfer or wages for a loan.

2.) 20 Jul 2017 07:40:37
Can anyone clear this up. Just want to know for sure what the compensation rules are for players under 24.

I posted the other day that Hearts would be entitled to £400,000 development fee if walker leaves next summer as when his contract expires on the 1st June 2018 he will still be only be 24. As far as I'm aware clubs are entitled to a fee for players 24 years old and under and a few mates of mine who are Jambos believe this is also the case. If this is true then i can see why Hearts are hanging on to him as there is no point selling for the £600,000 we have offered if they are guaranteed this fee anyway. I'd love to see Walker at Ibrox but if this is the case then it makes our bid look ridiculous.

3.) 20 Jul 2017 13:07:21
Its under 23 that rule applies

4.) 20 Jul 2017 19:44:35
rule is for under 24 not including as far as i'm aware and if u think we will get him next season your aff your head sum1 from england will offer him massive wages compared to what we offer him and he will be another one that we let go
i personally would pay what they are asking for but that's because i believe in two seasons time we could easily get 4-5 million for him if he players well and that is still good business ad i know you don't want to give hearts money but they would rather keep a player that will score goals and set up goals than have 500,000 and i'd rather have a player that does those things rather than wait and not have that player for the start of this new season

5.) 20 Jul 2017 22:18:22
would give the 600k offered with some milestone add ons say 20+goals first season 100k thoughts?

Can anyone tell me if the buying Club can rip up a Pre-Contract a Player signs 6 months before his Contract is actually up?

3-5-2 for sat, close down the space for their wingers cutting inside. Foderingham, tag, john, bates, valves, Wilson, mccrorie, jack or barjonas, Holt, windlass, Morelos.

Aye, 3 centre backs and flood the midfield. That has to be the play

30 Sep 2017 23:43:53
Totally scunnerd by ex players now pundits especially Boyd and Steven Thompson! just the thought of them drowning on getting exited at the very least wee negative thing coming out of Ibrox, utter Pratt's. Actually worse than Sutton.

I think boyds hair transplant has went to his head

2.) 01 Oct 2017 08:37:31
Boyd snds like a bitter ex player sometimes

3.) 01 Oct 2017 09:17:08
Boyd should be concentrating on his own clubs turmoil right now although he was right to condemned Celtic fans! as for Steven Thompson he is a pathetic yes man for BBC.

4.) 01 Oct 2017 09:07:00
Pundits like Boydie, the Fergusons and Alex Rae all know a lot more about what is happening inside Ibrox than we do and don't seem to believe Caxinha is doing a good job and so are speaking out about it as they feel it's the right thing to do being Rangers supporters.

Good on them.

5.) 01 Oct 2017 09:53:44
Alex rae seems decent and honest as does Kevin Thompson but boydie for me is a bitter man trying to create a career for himself while Steven Thompson is a crawling spittal licker whom panders to bbc

6.) 01 Oct 2017 12:09:21
Yes naz, they do know what's going on inside ibrox than we do, because there's a rat in there leaking stories to all their ex rangers players pals! that's the whole point buddie! Its pathetic and not on whoever is filling there mouths! Let our manager manage and TIME will tell if he's the right manager for us! Give him a chance without moles and ex gers players trying to undermine everything he does!

7.) 01 Oct 2017 16:24:51
Great point supercooled



30 Sep 2017 14:44:37
What about we actually get right behind Pedro and the team! Been doubter's from day one, give the man time and respect.

bgate w

1.) 30 Sep 2017 15:13:10
Here here. Let's get right behind the whole team. Warburton had 4 transfer windows. Pedro has had one. He needs time and we should give him it.

2.) 30 Sep 2017 16:56:47
I'll get behind him if he can get a run of wins together ( not done 3 in a trot) we must beat top half of league and take Point's from shmellic!

3.) 30 Sep 2017 17:14:38
why can't u get behind him until then, bad enough press badmouthing but so called fans.

4.) 30 Sep 2017 23:36:54
Agree bgate w, too many on here too ready to rush to judgement, including some former players. Let's all get behind the manager and players. The trip to Canada provides good opportunity for further team bonding.

5.) 01 Oct 2017 11:21:31
I think you have to remember that the ex players you're talking about are also fans and much like a lot of fans on here, when a result doesn't go out way, they kick off! This is the nature of our football club, high expectations are hand in hand with high criticism.



19 Jul 2017 11:19:35
Bring Naismith home was young man badly advised! Fud, tav, waldo, valves, cardoso, jack, rossiter, Naismith, dorrans, walker, Herrera in a 4,2,3,1.

What a load of crap he was an adult who made that decision to desert the club. He knew what he was doing and knew the consequences. He isn't a 5 year old child

2.) 19 Jul 2017 17:30:28
Brian g, I understand where you coming from but I would give Naismith a chance as I know how he deeply regrets how he left and what was said. I also feel if we are to catch up on our rivals this is a signing we should make as other suitable targets would cost more and maybe harder to attract. Naismith deserves a 2nd chance



21 Feb 2017 03:12:42
Why was Warburton allowed to bring in umpteen attack minded players and 2 defensive midfielder 1 was injured and one a whaloper.

bgate w

1.) 22 Feb 2017 08:20:10
The waloper as you put it is playing in the most competitive league in the world and doing very well. And the injured 1 played all summer for England u19 as there captain. Let's get something straight here barton was shown the door for basically telling haliday a few home truths which have been proven to be true. I think we got rid of The wrong 1

2.) 22 Feb 2017 23:14:04
Because he was the manager?
