Its going well. Its still early days. We are getting better. Ibrox is returning to its "dont want to go there status". We have a manager who applies a relentless and ruthless work ethic. The journey has only just begun. The unwashed are in meltdown. Us v them at Ibrox for me is when we will truly know where were at. In the meantime turn the screw by racking up maximum points and watch the timplosion! :)


1.) 24 Sep 2018 00:49:59
‘Commonsense’. ironically the best post for a long time, my sentiments exactly. tip o the cap sir.

2.) 24 Sep 2018 07:22:41
Agree, I love it when the manager is still not happy with certain aspects of the performance. Obviously this means we will get better. We were sloppy in patches near the end yesterday but to complain about a 5-1 going on 10 tonking of a decent side shows just how far we've come.

3.) 24 Sep 2018 07:48:22
we need to get in celtic faces. that's the only way to beat them. Sitting off like we did in the last game only makes them look good.

but even getting in their faces is risky because of the pace/ quality of some of their players

confident that if we do get stuck in we would pull off a victory. hearts will be a tough game though.

4.) 24 Sep 2018 09:47:12
I just hope Gerrard falls in love with this place so much that he never wants to leave, because at some stage a premier league club will come calling and if it’s his beloved Liverpool it’s a tough choice- he is an absolute touch of class and I hope we enjoy many years with him at the helm!

5.) 24 Sep 2018 10:13:33
True Geopac3 but I'd hope that only Liverpool will. turn his head I wouldn't see why he would want to go places like Watford, Brighton or Southampton unless of course it's down to money!

There truly is no comparison!

6.) 24 Sep 2018 12:28:04
I believe that he is here to serve his apprenticeship. Liverpool is undoubtedly his ultimate goal but there's boxes to be ticked for that to become a reality. Winning trophys including a league title would improve his cv. Europa and CL experience would too. Its a winner for us as when he moves on he should have our club in mind for loans/ sales of players etc. Him and Rangers can both win.

7.) 24 Sep 2018 12:57:46
I don't think that would be a tough choice for him at all, and who could blame him for that. Like Kazmania said, hopfully it'll only be Liverpool and hopfully not for a few years.

8.) 24 Sep 2018 14:36:32
Just need to hope Liverpool continue playing the way they have been for the last 9 months and we won’t have anything to worry about.

9.) 24 Sep 2018 15:38:50
Realistically, he has to prove himself and there is no harder choice than Rangers! #FACT

He's only going to improve his CV

If he can somewhat win the league first year of asking and get to knockout stages of Europa He has done tremendously well

Even getting second place first year of asking (To Hearts hopefully) and Europa knockout stages along with a domestic cup he would've delivered in my eyes!

I take my hat off to the man and Gerrard will forever be one of us now

To put any doubts to bed, whatever he liked about Celtic will be long gone I'm sure he owes Rangers lots of gratitude aswell for believing in him from an inexperienced point of view

My God, if this pulls off A MASSIVE WELL DONE to Davie King and Mark Allen

Gerrard oozes class and the last time we had that type on the field was Brian Laudrup and Walter Smith as Manager

Keep up the work Gerrard and Co. We are loving getting our Club back where it truly belongs.

10.) 24 Sep 2018 22:39:41
Sorry guys, I meant if a “BIG” premier league club comes calling he’d have a tough choice- if he does a great job here- the likes of Brighton, Bournemouth, Huddersfield and Watford’s couldn’t attract him! He is an English legend, won major trophies and captained his country- if the job here is well done only the “BIG” clubs could attract him away, this is Stevie G we’re talking about not some has been like Brendan Rodgers were talking about😂.

11.) 25 Sep 2018 22:00:51
I agree with the seeker and was dismayed to see our defence fall asleep near end of second half. Was horrified with that back pass near miss thinking here we go again conceding in the latter stages of the game. Thankfully Saints missed several chances we gifted them.
but what an outstanding result and hope we keep the momentum going.

12.) 27 Sep 2018 11:59:35
Rangers is just a platform for SG to learn his trade. compitition in Scotland only 2 teams that win the league Rangers or Celtic so Scottish football isn't great. eat out of a bad bunch. For SG to learn with Rangers is great opertunity for both of us. Every one comes to Scotland so the can move on to England. We are early days we have momentum and winning. (Feels great) EVERYONE is going on about Sunday. St Johnston aren't a great team. We didn't fair to great with bigger teams so far. Draw aberdeen, manky mob beat us. So early days we will soon see how we get on against hearts.



08 May 2018 22:19:29
Whilst not the result we wanted, that point could be crucial. We have one game left not to lose to guarantee Europe. HIVs need to win 2 games. Jambos might do us a favour tomorrow. Ideally we beat HIVs and sheep lose. 2nd place still possible but given how were playing its unlikely.


1.) 08 May 2018 23:39:18
Ibs get a draw tomorrow and beat rangers and Celtic win hibs are in 2nd place and even if we stay in 4th if celtic win Scottish cup jibs still in Europe

2.) 08 May 2018 23:49:03
I don’t think 2nd is unlikely at all, infact only losing against Hibs will stop us being 2nd. If Hearts beat Hibs we would need to lose 5-0 in last game to not finish above Hibs. If Hibs draw or win they will either be 2 points or goal difference worse off than us so again a draw for us guarantees we stay above them and unless the Sheep take anything from celtic park a point would see us finish 2nd on goal difference ahead of Aberdeen and Hibs.
Predictions for final games
Hearts 1 Hibs 1
Ceptic 3 Aberdeen 0
Hibs 1 Rangers 2

3.) 09 May 2018 05:20:06
Aberdeen will beat Celtic on Sunday, sporting integrity out the window if they can stop us finishing above the sheep . They will rest players for the final and take it easy against Aberdeen,

4.) 09 May 2018 06:24:19
Hibs midfield are going to bully our midfield reckon we have missed Jack since his injury.

5.) 09 May 2018 08:03:27
Why is Sean Goss not playing? he has it all! he was awesome until the 3-2 defeat to that mob get him back in the side for the t’hibbs

6.) 09 May 2018 08:17:16
Problem we have is mccrorie and morelos suspended, dorrans and Jack injured.

Will need to shuffle the pack. Who has it in them to step up?

7.) 09 May 2018 08:33:10
You can be sure Celtic will be playing their reserve team against the sheep and will lose

8.) 09 May 2018 09:19:41
Second place not important. If we are third or fourth we play extra Euro tie worth 1 million plus. Only get 300k extra for second
Europe is what counts

9.) 09 May 2018 09:22:27
It’s not what they do that will determine where we finish. Ten defeats six draws our problem

10.) 09 May 2018 11:57:36
with mcrorie suspended and dorrans, windass and jack all injured cld we not play a mid 3 with holt goss and doc

stick rossiter / barjonas on bench just in case

i think mcrorie will be a big miss on sunday as hibs midfield normally bully us

time for doc to come back in and show is what he’s made of -

you never know cummings cld been saving a goal for the HIVS

11.) 09 May 2018 12:06:12
3rd is embarrassing enough never mind 4th. Aberdeen will beat Celtic and finish 2nd for sure but Hibs won't beat Hearts tonight. All we need to do is draw with Hibs for 3rd even if they manage to beat Hearts

12.) 09 May 2018 13:21:40
I thought we played well when we went 4-4-2 last night.

Id start that against hibs.

Tav bates martin Halliday
candias holt goss Murphy
morelos cummings



23 Feb 2018 23:48:09
For me its simple. Beat hearts. After that let's wait and see how results pan out. Beating Celtic in the next old firm would be massive for us but also rattle them. Pressurising Celtic is when we will find out what they're really made of. They are champions. We are not. yet!


1.) 24 Feb 2018 02:19:33
Well said commonsense We need to take one game at a time

2.) 24 Feb 2018 02:22:46
I was hoping Celtic would get past Zenit. Guaranteed they would have dropped more league points if they had. Let's just take it one game at a time

3.) 24 Feb 2018 08:08:33
A lot to play for yet, one game at a time. Celtic will drop more points if we can keep the pressure on. Their bubble will burst.

All I ask for is give them a run till end of season, see where it gets us.

After last 2 seasons, I’d take second having closed the gap, this time last year, celtic had the league tied up.

Close second and silverware of sorts, along with beating them at least once was my realistic want at the start of the season. Still doable

4.) 24 Feb 2018 09:59:48
Do you think we'll beat hearts today, i've got serious doubts guys.

5.) 24 Feb 2018 10:46:53
Your not the only one we are crap at ibrox and fear some are getting too carried away saying aberdeen will do us a favour tomorrow but we seem to keeo shooting our own foot



13 Oct 2017 23:16:28
Finally I saw what we have been crying out for. a bit of fight and passion. Pena is still a bit slow but his finishes were outstanding. Dorrans fantastic. Alves class. A very positive evening. Back in your box St Johnstone gob shi*es.

Win the Europa league or stop 10 in a row. If you had to choose then which would it be?


1.) 17 Dec 2019 20:35:40
Stop nine no ten.

2.) 17 Dec 2019 20:54:30
Anyone who says europa needs there head looked at.

3.) 17 Dec 2019 20:55:29
Im not fussed about 9. 10 is the question.

4.) 17 Dec 2019 23:03:37
Win the treble nothing less.

5.) 18 Dec 2019 00:20:13
Seen as we lost the final that's no exactly going to happen haha.

6.) 18 Dec 2019 00:39:49
europa league!

7.) 18 Dec 2019 00:41:16
Bit late for that stewartyyblue.

8.) 18 Dec 2019 07:53:38
We have one European trophy in our history. 54 leagues. I’d take Europe first and league next year. 9 in a row in what is regarded as an irrelevant league does not even come close to a European trophy.

9.) 18 Dec 2019 08:00:24
Stop 10 anyone who says anything else have a word with yourself.

10.) 18 Dec 2019 08:50:45
Winning the Europa League would be sensational and history making.

11.) 18 Dec 2019 09:55:05
Win the Europa, win the league and stop the 9.
What a season. 👍😎.

12.) 18 Dec 2019 11:05:18
Win the Europa League for me. That would really make Europe sit up and take notice of us. It would help financially far more, prize money and increased sponsorship and attract a better class of player and get us into the CL automatically.

13.) 18 Dec 2019 11:14:14
We won't win the Europa League this season and neither will they.

14.) 18 Dec 2019 11:34:47
Cant beleive sone of us entertain the possibility of winning the Europa league . last 8 would be a dream anything more is just fantasy but that goes for celtic also.

15.) 18 Dec 2019 14:10:34
We made the final in 2008 with arguably a weaker team.

16.) 18 Dec 2019 15:01:47
Stop the 9!

17.) 18 Dec 2019 15:44:16
Herewego not sure re weaker team.

18.) 18 Dec 2019 17:44:32
League, scottish cup, Europa cup equals treble guys. Let them have the dodgy decision league cup.



10 Dec 2019 12:13:26
Purely my perspective on Ryan Jack. So when I played football I was in tears every time we lost a cup final or league title which wasn't often however it hurt. 6 months ago I was sat in Boston USA in tears after performing particularly badly at a sporting event. 2 weeks ago I was bouncing around in Valencia after performing really well at another sporting event. The period in between I used the original disappointment to fuel my training and desire. My point is very simple, in order to win you sometimes need the hurt from losing to teach you to succeed. I love my players caring so much that they are in tears. I believe Sunday will turn them into winners. Follow follow.




30 Sep 2019 16:59:17
Clearly things are going very well for the 1st team which is brilliant and long may it continue. Our youth set up is now the envy of many teams throughout the UK. Youngsters want to come to Rangers and in fairness Gerrard is a huge part of that. Always snipes coming from ex celtic players who can see what's coming and don't like it but the reality is we do have a long term plan. Love him or hate him I cannot fault Dave King for effort. Yes he may make some mistakes along the way (Sports Direct being the main one) but I have a team I am proud of again and a lot of credit should be given to King. Remember fellow Rangers, when we start winning trophies again this year, be good winners, we were born that way :)


1.) 30 Sep 2019 17:27:30
Guys, the older fans amongst us will remember Bobby Russell a old fashioned No 8 signed from Shettleston Juniors, what a great player he turned out to be. Why would Shankland if he came to us be warming the bench, have we got so many natural scorers on board. I agree that it would have been worth a punt based on what I'm seeing now, after all we wasted £2 million on Grezda.

2.) 30 Sep 2019 17:59:53
We should have snapped Shankland up when he left Ayr United, now we’ll have to pay a lot more but I think it would be money well spent as he’s obviously a natural goal scorer.

3.) 30 Sep 2019 19:53:09
commonsense the sports direct problem was there already before dave king came in yes he has a battle on his hands and it is and hasn't been easy but i believe we will rid our club of the bad sports direct deals.

4.) 01 Oct 2019 00:03:53
Well said Brian. people forget that . Mr king has and is manuvering us out of a very sticky situation that no one else was prepared to touch . The fact none of those people are now coming through our gates or sitting in our stands is testimony to his positive forward motions. Might not be pretty and is always open to getting slaughtered. even by our own glass half empty brigade but fir me we are progressing nicely. Ibrox was amazing on sat . Let’s try and get it like that all the time. For the first time at a league game we. weren’t reliant on the union bears although they played their part . I must admit though where we are has a huge huge slice of luck attached as well . Remember we nearly went for Mcinnes . 🙏thank you lord.

5.) 01 Oct 2019 13:30:28
Lets just wait and see molsgoals.

6.) 01 Oct 2019 13:34:22
Ivger, we're obviously same era watching Bobby Russell. Always felt he was good player in mediocre side but always felt he could have been great if he added couple of stones.

7.) 01 Oct 2019 15:14:13
MBW, spot on mate, very lightweight but great vision, it's a bit sad that players don't come through much from the Juniors nowadays, as it would have stopped a lot of these crazy transfer fees for less than ordinary players. I said in another thread also, I was at Rugby Park the day big Colin Jackson made his debut in a 2-0 defeat, and got booed of the park, he also didn't turn out too bad, maybe some of our glass half empty fans should be a little more patient.



21 Feb 2019 19:10:52
So I am a protestant Rangers supporter. My wife is a catholic Celtic supporter. We don't have any problem with this. Neither do our families. Lots of others do! Their problem, never ours! Thing is we get offended by a minority of both sets of old firm fans actions. I detest being in Ibrox listening to idiots screaming sectarian abuse. She hates her fans doing the same. Most of the religious bigots haven't set foot in a church let alone have a basic understanding of the christian faith. I love nothing more than enjoying an old firm victory and having banter with my wife and inlaws. Far more important things in life than religious prejudice :) :)


1.) 21 Feb 2019 19:26:58
Hear hear. Protestants are more similar to Catholics than any other group in society. If these people are genuinely religious then they should feel a bond with their Christian brothers. That said I would assume a tiny fraction of those who sing the songs have ever been to church.

2.) 21 Feb 2019 21:09:39
I'd also assume they didn't go to school much either.

3.) 21 Feb 2019 21:27:32
Yes but there is also a lot worse going on the world. When did society become so sensitive that people are up in arms over songs etc? Get a life. I’ve had bigoted names threw at me in the past and I couldn’t give a monkeys. Too many folk jumping on a band wagon here.

4.) 21 Feb 2019 21:36:10
It’s often the small differences that cause the biggest problems. Celtic v Rangers, catholic v protestant, Scottish v English. We don’t have the same lack of tolerance for groups from further afield. It’s sad that it exists and it will take a long time to eradicate, possibly never. However, the more people speak up and point out that it’s unacceptable, the less it will happen and even that has to be a step in the right direction. Rivals not enemies.

5.) 22 Feb 2019 01:00:32
the people singing these songs need to remember/ realise SG is a catholic as are his kids so no doubt his wife and both their families also.
not to mention el buffalo, candeias and many others including treble winning captains and club legends.
its cringey and embarassing.

6.) 23 Feb 2019 01:00:24
So before catholic and Protestants what were the Scottish.

{Ed033's Note - Scota (where the name Scotland maybe from) came from Egypt originally.



15 Feb 2019 10:04:01
Were all frustrated at the SFA, Media and all the Rangers haters. The only way to stick 2 fingers up to them all is to win trophies. i'm stating the obvious but we are too good for the conspiracy nonsense. Yes things are clearly against us on most fronts but surely this should be used as a contributing factor to future success? When I played football nothing got me going more! A sense of injustice and unfair treatment is a great motivator. Onwards to battle :)


1.) 15 Feb 2019 12:39:07
With you on that, let's not lower ourselves to their pathetic standards. Do the talking on the pitch.

2.) 15 Feb 2019 21:50:35
Too many of our support are starting to act like paranoid Tims.
Stop wallowing in our own self pity and remember we are the Famous Glasgow Rangers👍.

3.) 15 Feb 2019 22:06:25
Here here Commonsense, spot on.

4.) 16 Feb 2019 03:55:12
Well done lads 👍🏻 Hopefully a sign of what to come for the famous. 🙌🏻.
