Not pretty but 3 points which is more than we managed v Ross County last year.

Its a good weekend if u think bak to the last game before break last season (1-1 with killie) hopefully win the nxt 2 so going into game against them we're only 3pts behind at least

When Joey Barton signed I was very disappointed because I think Rangers players; past, present and future need to have personal and professional standards that are high and I felt - and still feel - that his historical behaviour did not belong at Ibrox.

Having watched his press conference in full, again, I have to say that - whilst I still have reservations - if he performs on the pitch as he does at in front of the media he could be a great player for us. I just hope he keeps his head and plays his game on the pitch. He doesn't need to prove how much he loves Rangers by getting sent off against Celtic.

Good post OP. I really hope he's not just here to be in the media spotlight at a huge club and promote himself as a loudmouthed media figure.

What about when gazza signed, did you feel the same or did u put that to the back of your mind because of his abilities. you don't always get the perfect footballer on and off the pitch mate. there's always things that people don't like about people, nobody is perfect.

I'm really glad we signed Barton. whatever his past, he's grown up and moved on. the fact he got in the championship team of the year says it all. that's one of the hardest leagues to play in. I'm not saying the best, but hardest. he's quality and will bring a lot to our team on the field and off it especially with the media. he won't back down from no. 1 especially the other side getting sent off doesn't prove nothing to me in an old firm game.

I'd rather we won the game as winning is the single most important thing we win trophies we win cups. I believe he's here for the right reasons, I just hope he proves it when he pulls the jersey on his back winning against Dundee is just as important. we want to win every game. he's got more passion in his big toe than broonys got in his whole body. can't wait till the beginning of a great season.

Bruised Bear. Good post. This has always been my take on the Barton transfer. Good player - yes, no doubt about it (though nowhere near Gazza imo) , but I think the media circus up here along with the haters will constantly try to mess with his head, hoping for a reaction. If he does react, especially in an OF match, the baw would be well and truly burst. He really needs to shut his trap and do his talking on the pitch. Only then will he gain the respect of our support and it will show the rest that their tactics will not work. Would love to see him make his mark for the right reasons, though I have serious doubts as to whether or not he is capable of a little restraint from time to time.

Barton is the catalyst for all these other players joining, he has put us back on the Footballing map. As for his quality, he will be the best player in the league by a country mile, of that I have no doubt. The English Championship is full of expensive signings and yet he was the man there last year. We also have the squad to fill in for him should he find himself suspended/ injured at any point although I honestly think that side of him has mellowed.

5.) 21 Jun 2016 13:53:35
Humey, when Gazza signed for Rangers it was 1995 and I was under 30. At that point I cared less about honour and integrity and the true meaning to me of Rangers. I'm older now, these aspects are more important to me and I want Rangers to be exemplary off and on the pitch.

I accept no-one is perfect but there are degrees of imperfection. Additionally, Gazza was world class, Barton isn't; Gazza was a bit of an idiot, Barton is/ was a thug. An intelligent and articulate one though.

In 1995, it wasn't common knowledge that Gazza hit his wife so I couldn't be morally outraged by what I didn't know.

On a similar topic, I don't understand those who wholeheartedly accept Barton's signing but slate those who reckon Jason Cummings should sign, just because he's done some silly stuff. Whatever Jason Cummings has done - it doesn't come close to Barton's misdemeanours.

Stokes would be an interesting appointment. He tore us to shreds in cup final, probably hates us with a passion and has questionable temperament. Apart from the cup final bit, sounds like Mo. Other than the fact that Mo was good, of course. Anyway, he's free and good.

You're having a bloody laugh aren't you?

2.) 10 Jun 2016 08:52:16
Bruisedbear. You awryt mate? Because that's absolute nonsense yer talkin there.

3.) 10 Jun 2016 10:17:02
bruisedbear have u been involved in an accident recently and taken a blow to the head.
I have a few numbers that I could give u for a claim!

ive heard a lot of bad rumours on this site but that one takes the biscuit.

4.) 10 Jun 2016 11:29:59
Had to be one of the worst posts on this site however it's probably a wind up but not a good one at that. Maybe we could also high jack Lennon's appointment at Hibs and he can replace Durrant.

5.) 10 Jun 2016 11:33:35
maybe we could get him and his dad to organise a few functions for us in their homeland, raise our profile in Southern Ireland. Sorry but this is ridiculous.

Absolute cracker Biffo!

That Ramos looks like a prospect. Possible back up for Wilson?


1.) 28 May 2016 23:42:48
Felt really sorry for athletico in it, a hell of a lot of play acting aswell but that number 7 for real could end up a player aswell get the magic hat on it.

2.) 29 May 2016 00:12:08
nah, I reckon that illusionist that won BGT would be better at concealing goals.

Better team lost.

Bonus for me was betting on Ramos for first scorer at 33/ 1 . What were bookies thinking.

I have steadfastly tried to avoid all forms of media and communication with anyone since 4.45pm yesterday. I sat through a gig after the game with my family in abject mysery but got through the night without resorting to violence - although managed not to communicate without either. 6 swift pints of San Miguel whilst watching the game has not - unfortunately - enabled me to forget what I witnessed. What I have to post may already have been posted but it'll prove carthartic for me even if behind the curve for others. Apologies in advance.

Firstly - big congratulations to Hibs. They clearly wanted it more than us and fully deserved their victory. No need to elaborate further on this.

Secondly - the most disappointing aspect for me was the manner of the defeat, as per above. I thought we were dreadful. Slow, 2nd to first ball, 2nd to second ball, consistently harried out of possession, inert in attack, etc. Really not enjoyable to watch a Rangers team perform like that in a Cup Final. Yet another reality check, as if we've not had enough in last few weeks.

Thirdly - I've defended the defenders this season but can't defend the indefensible any more?! They were awful - especially Tavernier. How many goals have we lost in last 10 games and how many in last minute of matches - Falkirk, QoS, Raith Rovers, Hibs. Too brittle, too much panic, too weak, lacking experience. Even if we are 3 up with 10 mins to I would not be confident. This has to change.

Fourthly - what on earth was that all about at the end? I have little interest in what the Hibs fans did but why were there Rangers' fans on the pitch? I'd be interested to hear ANY defence or attempted justification of these actions by our own supporters.

Finally - now I've got that off my chest, what a good season. Mission accomplished and preparations for next season well under way. It'll be very interesting indeed and I look forward to the highs and highs again when it all starts.


1.) 22 May 2016 20:27:59
Good God - I'm replying to my own post. Our own club has attempted to justify our own fans on the pitch yesterday. Help!

Media said at the weekend that a specialist was looking at him and Rossiter so I guess he's not ready yet.

Anotherbear, Can’t agree with your newspaper thesis. When we were winning 9IAR, the papers must have been full of 'us'. Now they are dominating domestic footballs the papers are full of 'them'.

It’s about who’s top dog - not about the editors of newspaper proactively recruiting journalists with specific allegiances to certain teams.

The state our club has been in is not down to the media.

Even allowing for the “everyone’s entitled to their opinion” I cannot believe the stick McCoist gets on here. 355 goals for Rangers, Assistant Manager and the Manager during the most turbulent time in the club’s history. Oh - and he had the sheer audacity to take money from the club that he was contractually entitled to after he was sacked. Please Ally, hurry up and write that book and give us your version.

He certainly won’t get in whilst not playing for us when he could be - and I suspect that Alves knows that’s in the post.

Broxi. I’m one that would have happily had Naismith back but am not too disappointed that we didn’t. First reason being we got Cummings. Second reason being that Murty said we spoke to him and reading the subtext I’d say we chose not to pursue. Us not getting him as a conscious decision as opposed to us simply being beaten to him by Hearts sits well with me.

TJBB. I think your perspective is good and it's wise to take a step back and see if there has been / is material improvement yoy. It's fair to say that we have progressed and the board should be congratulated for their efforts thus far.

However, we are an omnishambles currently and the latest debacle re the managerial appointment is the icing on the cake for many it would appear. It may be there is a reason that cannot be publicised for our current status. I hope so because if not, I fear for the present never mind the future.

The club has lost dignity and is not operating with class. The PR is utterly atrocious and our board's arrogance is sometimes astounding. There is toxicity at Ibrox. The current squad is - for whatever reason - not performing. There are some good players in there but we are mentally brittle and physically weak. Watching us play is painful. Strangely, we are still 3rd in the league.

Despite all this, and like most of us I suspect, I'll be supporting them until we get back on track - and beyond. I strongly suspect that this will take longer than any of us imagined. But it will happen.
