Would like to see tav and candies get a run of games to forge that partnership that severed us so well at points last season candy is again one of the top performers and sg keep dropping and moving him around to fit his signing in and it has cost us at times this season.


1.) 01 Feb 2019 09:05:01
I agree! James tavernier and daniel candeias are excellent together, on the right for us. They have a superb understanding of each others game.

2.) 01 Feb 2019 09:36:55
Like wise with Barasic and Kent on the left hand side.

3.) 01 Feb 2019 10:44:43
I think tav gets more protection from having Candeias infront of him and candeias gets more support in the attacking third with tav, so seems a no brainer. Kent doesn't really cover back and win balls the way candeias does but barasic seems a more accomplished defender. I actually think its hard to split halliday and barasic except for the fact barasics balls into the box are superb and just for that he would start ahead of halliday.

4.) 01 Feb 2019 10:53:40
If we are happy with second then Tav and Candeias are good enough but not if we want to win the league. The Drury is still out Barasic as he has not played enough games.

5.) 01 Feb 2019 13:59:22
Being saying it since start of season, we need better to win league.
Too many talk about our excellent players, how they are outstanding
Not one player would get a game with Souness reserves
Morelos would get on bench.

6.) 01 Feb 2019 14:03:57
Halliday has more heart, Barisic is a better footballer.

7.) 01 Feb 2019 14:40:12
Jboy21 you can't compare anything to the souness era. We had players then at todays money would be closing in on the £50million mark. Players that could walk into man utd or the like. Woods, Butcher, Walters, Gough, Wilkins, Stevens.
Are our players better than last season? Yes. that's what you need to improve. Every season strive to improve.

8.) 01 Feb 2019 15:07:24
Fintytint, don't pay attention to what jboy21 says! Remember he's from the mountain! 😂.

9.) 01 Feb 2019 15:19:18
I can it’s all about opinions.

10.) 01 Feb 2019 15:21:54
Personally I’m a big fan of Halliday. If you’re a Rangers man how can you not be!? Barasic is a far better player though skill wise. Would Barasic throw it about like Halliday did in the old firm game though? I doubt it! It’s a hard decision for Gerrard.

11.) 01 Feb 2019 15:23:46
COOps exercise lain your wit is away over my head.

12.) 01 Feb 2019 15:36:16
COOps explain.

13.) 01 Feb 2019 16:21:31
Why are we so eager to attack and belittle our own team? Candieas and Tav only good enough if we want 2nd. ? Were you actually at the last game with Celtic ok only 1-0 but we totally outplayed them. Morelos is a bad player because he can't score against Celtic WTF he hit the crossbar last time so if that was 2 inches lower he'd be great? Methinks there are too many children on here, maybe not my kids talk more sense.
I don't think (hope hope hope) we will win the league this year, we have been too inconsistent. I worry for the summer we have a lot of players, a few Gerrard's, to move on, to be fair he has vastly improved our team. Pity it's not FM 2016 get another manager to buy your duds at top prices :) . I really want us to win the league and though unlikely we do have a chance.

14.) 01 Feb 2019 17:14:57
Carefully think about it Jboy21!Its quite easy pal!

15.) 01 Feb 2019 18:04:39
Qcoop afraid you have me lost, explain or don't make personal comments you don't have balls to state.

16.) 01 Feb 2019 18:06:43
Slight chance bluepete. Good post mate but it's all about opinions. Not missed a home game in over 30 yrs
Also Morelos never hit the bar.
Look at my previous posts and u will see I back him.

17.) 01 Feb 2019 18:08:06
Flinty good reply you hit it on head as I keep saying this team needs to improve.

18.) 01 Feb 2019 18:45:19
Walton's mountain, there's the give away Jboy21!

19.) 01 Feb 2019 18:57:24
Blue Pete,

I genuinely hope you are right and both Candeias perform to their best for the rest of the season The test to win the league is to remain unbeaten for the rest of the season and turn up at Parkhead then Ibrox and get a result against Celtic. If they do that I will happily admit that am wrong.

20.) 01 Feb 2019 19:31:36
Pmsl coops but you had not mentioned the Waltons.

21.) 02 Feb 2019 09:53:12
Halliday should be our first choice left back. Barasic hasn't taken his chance when played, Halliday has. Outstanding against Celtic, solid 7/ 10 most other games and that's a couple of goals now for him. I'd Gerrard is true to his word then the shirt is Hallidays.

22.) 02 Feb 2019 19:16:57
Jboy Morelos DEFINITELY POSITIVELY EMPHATICALLY hit the bar btw what does emphatically mean? I've missed, through work, on Saturdays 4 home games in the last 20 + years. I also make most away games I just rile when I see our own denigrating our better players.

23.) 02 Feb 2019 23:10:59
Cool, it was brown who hit bar mate.



13 Jun 2018 23:00:25
Still need a few more first team players to challenge next season would like to see Oli Mcburnie, a solid lb / rb to challenge, defensive (Mulumbu) and attacking mid and a rw


1.) 14 Jun 2018 06:03:16
Mcburnie no thanks.

2.) 14 Jun 2018 07:03:08
Dont rate mcburnie at all, everyone wants him because he's a blue nose, doesn't make him great. Jack Marriott peterborough and solanke on loan. ideal!

3.) 14 Jun 2018 07:18:17
Mulumbu would be a good addition

4.) 14 Jun 2018 10:33:12
I'm not sold on Mcburnie either, the days of signing folk because they're a self confessed bluenose are now over. He needs to push on with Swansea and show consistency.

5.) 14 Jun 2018 10:59:51
I don't understand your logic, if he pushes on with Swansea and shows consistency we won't be able to afford him. He has a better goal per game record than Marriott £5m in a higher league and we can get McBurnie for half the price. Pretty much any 21 year old, we can afford, is a gamble. I think McBurnie is one worth taking the fact he's one of us is just a bonus.

6.) 14 Jun 2018 11:08:03
There is no logic on us paying big money on McBurnie when we can get him on a pre-contract agreement in January.

I would rather secure Solanke or even try to get one of Liverpool's other strikers on a 12 month loan and then bring in McBurnie or another striker that could be available next summer.

7.) 14 Jun 2018 11:55:24
keep hoping we could land defoe if he is still available

8.) 14 Jun 2018 12:46:10
Defoe could very well be that Marquee signing for the kit launch



17 Apr 2018 21:38:42
So hummels is the new kit deal? They only follow teams they supply on twitter and they recently followed us


1.) 17 Apr 2018 22:49:59
Nonsense obv someone stared a rumour on twitter never believe anything on twitter or social media until it’s been confirmed by rangers



08 Mar 2018 15:57:53
Can't see Murty changing it will stick with what he has been going with so far. Wes, tav, Bates, Martin, John, goss, doc, candy, Windass, Murphy and Alfredo unless injury’s can’t see him changing it


1.) 08 Mar 2018 20:03:55
Totally agree with that line up but alves will come in if Martin is injured. Right intae them



20 Feb 2018 17:36:15
Rumours Bates has knocked back a new contract offer, Bruno and cordoso look to be on the way out under Murty and is letting Wilson go. Who will we be getting in for next season? Like the look of McKenna from Aberdeen but wouldn’t say better than Wilson


1.) 20 Feb 2018 21:53:19
Steven caulker would be one to keep an eye see how he does between now and the rest of the season. Can't say I fancy any other centre backs playing in are league just now.

2.) 21 Feb 2018 00:13:27
Caulker is definitely a player we should be looking at, he’s still young enough and has played at a very good standard

3.) 22 Feb 2018 02:45:49
Caulker has personal issues I don't think should be shared in respect of his privacy, which will stop him signing for a top club anytime in the near future. He was fortunate to get a deal at Dundee, put it that way.

04 Jan 2019 13:46:37
Defoe through the middle with Kent and alfredo as inside forwards, tav and barsic as wing backs! can't wait to see that. our team is shaping up nicely. Celtic will need to spend big or fall behind simple as that to get players of the quality of Defoe and Davis would require 20 + million.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 14:21:00
Sounds a great team. Davis and Defoe not signed yet. Until its signed and sealed, then i can relax.

2.) 05 Jan 2019 03:24:38
This will be a problem but a good one to have obviously. Unless there is a formation change then I think it’s defoe or Morelos up top unless Morelos can drop back into the number 10 role, I’d hate to see him wide in a front 3. And Defoe will only be used as a centre fwd I think.



02 Dec 2018 06:57:38
How much do people think Alfredo is worth? Wouldn’t be happy with anything less than 30 million + with 25 sell on fee. blows other players at his age out the water with stats. has been involved in most goals in Europe so far this season than any other player.


1.) 02 Dec 2018 07:49:59
Being totally level headed and honest boabt78,i would put a value of around the £15million mark, on fredo morelos's head. Any club wishing to buy him, because there undoubtedly will be, to not come near rangers, with anything less than 15million quid for him! He's only going to get better and better and still only 22 years old. Hope our club makes any interested club, pay through the nose bigtime, for alfredo morelos!

2.) 02 Dec 2018 08:33:09
Good strikers are hard to find SuperCoop. I agree though 15m would be an unbelievable bit of business for the club!

First thing I’d do is go give the boy Shankland a chance, if it doesn’t work out then so be it. Ian McCall saying £300,000 would be enough to sell him!

3.) 02 Dec 2018 09:01:11
Even if you rate him at 15 million I still don’t think Gerrard won’t entertain that. We want to keep a hold of our best players and I doubt we would manage to get another strikers as good and young as Morelos. He’s going to have a fantastic career so we should enjoy having him as much as we can.

4.) 02 Dec 2018 10:52:14
£500 million.

5.) 02 Dec 2018 11:47:15
When I look at play like dembele, patrick cratone similar ages there half the player of Alfredo and easily double the price he’s been capped and imo there ain’t another striker at his age doing what’s he's doing.

6.) 02 Dec 2018 11:47:58
We’d love to just keep him wouldn’t we but sooner or later there will be an offer that both the club and the player cannot refuse.

7.) 02 Dec 2018 12:28:00
we are a selling club, its in our blue print to find young players and sell them on, so much for the moralos haters shouting sell him for 2 million early on the season. if he goes for 15 million its excellant buisness. hope our scouting system has eyes on the next morelos.

8.) 02 Dec 2018 14:20:08
Agree with those suggesting £15m. I would also add a 20% sell on fee is a fair agreement for a player playing in Scotland. Having said this we need to keep a hold of all of our best players for as long as we can or we will never compete with Celtic.

9.) 02 Dec 2018 15:23:42
Just hope its later rather than sooner if morelos goes, he really is developing under Gerrard, long may it continue!

10.) 03 Dec 2018 08:45:18
sadly i don't think we will get a penny more than 10m for wee alfie. due to the league we are in

if he was playing in english champonship you would be talking 25m-30m on current form and stats. however spfl is looked down on.

11.) 03 Dec 2018 23:21:28
Bluetoon thinks that wages for any new signing might be a stumbling block, prob rules out shankland👍. Boabt78 you've started early 😂👍.



29 Nov 2018 14:21:35
boys from wolves would be a steal watched him a few seasons ago imo a better rb that than tav would be a upgrade.


1.) 29 Nov 2018 18:23:18
You really should, at least, give clues. If you mean Iorfa would love to know where you saw him play he's hardly kicked a ball?



22 Nov 2018 09:30:34
Why not sign shankland scoring for fun give the lad a change to see what he’s got . We need that’s up top will definitely grab us 10 goals in the league this season and if we qualified for Europe league?


1.) 22 Nov 2018 10:55:29
The new Nicky Clarke?

2.) 22 Nov 2018 13:56:49
Why are people putting the boot in on Shankland. Some players have to drop down to find their feet and come back a stronger player.
He can score and we don't seem to have any others than can!

3.) 22 Nov 2018 14:38:39
We're the top scorers in the league GR1961.

4.) 22 Nov 2018 22:08:09
Disagreeing with an out and out FACT is the height of stupidity. Rangers are the top scorers in the league, FACT. Sorry if you don't like that Timothy, but disagreeing with it doesn't change anything. I don't even know why you's are bothered by that, you's are top of the league but disagreeing because we have scored more goals.

5.) 23 Nov 2018 09:09:28
Just meaning a lack of Out&Out Strikers.



27 Aug 2018 12:20:02
Big decision to go with 3 at the back at the weekend hink it back fired would have skelped them with our usual line up. big loss in term of momentum and going into the old firm top. Europe will be biillant for the team but to compete in this and the league will be a big ask if we qualify we need a more players in definitely 3 or 4.


1.) 27 Aug 2018 15:45:20
Great post Dunoonbluebear SG will make mistakes but he will get it right the more experienced he gets. The defence this season is night and day from last year plus there's more fight in team.

Going by what Murty is saying and reports there’s already been a bid of 11 million that was not near the price we value him? Don’t think anyone from the club has put a price on him

You joking 1 mill we need to be looking at at least 5 for tav people seem to give him stick for his defending but the boy the best wing back we've had going back to gio got pace to burn not bad crosser of the ball, links up well with forward players and got a wond of a right foot he will only get better in his defending got plenty of time to improve.

For me alfredo brings so much than goals and if he gets the right chance he could go onto be a world class player with a massive following. You look at guy like James and falco absolute heroes in Columbia. he's already has a massive fanbase in rangers and if he goes to the copa America and does well he will have a Good reputation in Columbia. If he can get the right move to a big team i think he should take it but not to a team that's not playing European football or fighting for the title in one of Europe's top 5 leagues. Am I'm sure sg will till him this he's spoken about how he told Suarez not to go to arsenal and stay the extra year because someone bigger would come in.

Seriously u want Hardie back from Livingston to replace our Columbian international? Morelos makes half his chance, finished a hard chance that was wrongly ruled offside, won us a penalty and his movement is word class. 10 for wagged 22.5 pus add on for demebele a capped morelos on a 4 years contract blows these figures out the water. People need to give the kid a break have Gerrard falco Bacca all praising the young man yet some of our fans still like to put him down.
