warburton remit at rangers was to get us promoted he done this but as for the rest of things in the job I certainly do not see the improvement he is ment to big on player development but the only player I see in our team that has developed further is mackay he is ment to be big on fitness but do not see this on the pitch looks the opposite on the field ment to be big on youth players yet none of our youth players seem to get a chance even when our first team stars are not performing was ment to add value to the squad on and off the field do not see any value in this squad of players part from mackay possibly rossiter if ever fit and maybe fordingham so not a lot of value added to the squad on and off the field so far
has to get us second in the leauge he is on course to do this.
so looking at the things 6 things above he is on course to achieve 2 out of 6
you can say he hasn't been giving money to spend but the money he has spent has not been spent Wisely


1.) 16 Jan 2017 13:04:17
Player developmemt is over the course of multiple seasons not half a season. Fitness has definetly improved but like similar teams in the epl it is hard to keep high tempo for 90mins playing the way we do. Young players is 3-5 type plan, if they aren't close to being good enough not much he can do. Adding value is inevitable as the vast majority of the guys we got for free so any transfer fee is adding value. 2million for 22 players is pretty good in my book. i don't know if you expected people like forreter to kick on and be sold for 15mill and a team full of teenagers but its not going to happen. Improving the youth system would be 1 youth player a season getting into the 1st team aquad and adding value is signing someone for free and selling them for a couple of mill after a couple of seasons

2.) 16 Jan 2017 13:46:19
so who in this squad do you think will develop in to good enough player two sell in few years time as for youth players who says there are not good enough they surley deserve a chance to prove there are by replacing underperforming if your going to play this high tempo game then you need fast and fit enough players who are going to perform in a unit we got them for free and that's how much they will end up leaving for cause they not good enough to sell for profit on this form and yeh at least 1 or 2 younsters should get into first team a year but so far they arent

3.) 16 Jan 2017 17:36:05
Maybe none for an serious profit yet but the point i am making is that its a long game and these things take time. If we had loaned out the young guys and they were stars for championship teams then they would get a chance but none of them have really performed so not good enough yet



08 Jan 2017 11:31:11
so a deal is supossedly finalised for hydman


1.) 08 Jan 2017 14:41:21
in Glasgow now



22 Sep 2015 21:07:13
i think on tonight's performance shows there is a long way to go before we can compete with average premier league teams never mind David king dreaming about challenging Celtic serious investment will be needed to do that
our defence is terrible Wilson should be dropped for ball instead seems to think he can stroll threw games


1.) 22 Sep 2015 22:32:44
To be fair I thought we played a good game apart from the defence and Halliday. Nothing went our way no luck. I'm not to fussed about the outcome our priority is winning the championship. If we do well in cups then it's a brucie bonus onwards and upwards RTID.



01 Aug 2015 10:40:26
eustace to be offered two year deal another bit of good business done by the club midfield looked light wait against hibs this will add protection for the defence would imagine this would mean halliday will move further forward in centre mid and replace law or holt or he could go to left wing where he played for Bradford this would be better option as boy can hit a ball and cross then if we could sign allan and replace law with him then our midfield would be very strong leaving mackay temps and aird to fight it out for right wing postion




14 May 2015 15:08:35
strong rumour going round this afternoon that david king has passed fit and proper test


1.) 14 May 2015 15:16:09
was just coming on here to write this mate. I think it might be true with an announcement due before close of play today.

2.) 14 May 2015 16:37:00
hopefully true then king ect can tell us there plan for the club and how much is going be invested

going forward into the summer transfer window do fellow fans agree that major work is still required on the squad.
We have a total of 5 loan players who i would let return to there clubs.
Then we have the the fringe players or injured players who should be released
Mcauley Wallace Fodringham Rossiter Holt Dodoo Hardie Alnwick Hodson Herrera Flanagan Dorrans.
That is a total of 17 players and you could say candelias and laffertty don't contribute much either and i also think we need more from jack going forward needs to add assists and goals to his game.
If not i would play mccorie or kamara in that role.
and there will no doubt be bids for morelos.
So there could be potentially 21 players that need to be replaced to move the club forward.


1.) 17 Feb 2019 11:55:15
Ryan jack is the best defensive mid we've got IMO, craigs8688!He if available and fit, plays every week for me!

2.) 17 Feb 2019 12:36:31
coops i agree but for me we need to add more assists and goals to our team and i feel going forward kamara or mccorie could offer this that's why i would pick them ahead jack.
But if we can get quality around jack to provide the assists and goals from midfield i would play jack.
We just seem to lack energy and directness from our midfield and strikers no one has a pop from distance or goes past players they just hand responsibility to tav Kent morelos
For me Docherty has to be in our first team on his return.

3.) 17 Feb 2019 15:39:07
Jacks no pace. The future is McCrorie. If you play a CDM it’s him. He has pace which is needed in there. Build for the future.



16 Feb 2019 18:39:52
today's performance was exactly like kilmarnock we just can't score without morelos in the team.
Very poor not any other players willing to take the responsibility and win us a game i would hate to think where we would be without him in the league.
Going forward i think we need get rid of all the players that are not good enough and all the loan players these signings have just not worked out well for us.
I think we need sign young hungry players with a point to prove and not loans need to be permanent signings and start getting more of our youth players involved in the first team.
Our midfield and strikers have a very poor return when you look at the goals and assists they contribute apart from morelos.


1.) 16 Feb 2019 21:21:41
Don’t worry lads, the team will have another meeting between themselves, and another and another etc.

2.) 16 Feb 2019 22:06:10
I would ban every single one of our players taking about titles cups ect in the media and among there self
They just make thereselve and the club look stupid.
This is not just a one off performance by them they are consitently not performing
Showing up for a few games a season ain't good enough.

3.) 16 Feb 2019 23:37:46
But they were good enough when we humped smellies and sheep?

4.) 16 Feb 2019 23:47:40
True words my friend but what motive do you need, playing for Rangers in front of the best supporters in the world and coached by Steven Gerrard. Now if those players cannot absorb and appreciate this then its time for them to fxxk oxf. This was another poor effort today. PS Celtic destroy them every time.



06 Feb 2019 23:19:12
morelos seem to be getting a hard time tonight on here with regards to his red card. on first viewing it looked like morelos never done much wrong he dangled his foot as there was a player underneath him on the floor there was no stamp towards the player.

Morelos will never stop getting himself in this situation as he loves the physical side of the game so will be involved in flash points sometimes if he was to stop all that he wouldn't be the same player
For me he was hard done by on this one should not have been red.


1.) 07 Feb 2019 06:13:31
Firstly i absolutely rate and think the world of alfredo morelos. But as far as i'm concerned he did deserve to be sent off and here's my take on the incident with mckenna. Although it wasn't a stamping motion by morelos, he quite clearly makes sure he connects with the bottom of his boot, onto the upper thigh of mckenna. There was no need for him to carry out that motion and if morelos stayed on the pitch i do believe we'd have won with a bit more to spare! He's a superb striker and very important to our team! He has to stop this craziness, by getting involved in things he doesn't need to do! He was giving their defenders a helluva time, up until his stupid sending off! He also feigned he was hit on the face, when quite clearly he wasn't and was actually looking while on the ground, to see what the ref was doing after the original incident. He needs to get that out his game, without taking his physical edge away! Good luck with that one, steven gerrard!

2.) 07 Feb 2019 08:03:42
If course he deserved it! He left his boot in McKennas groin!
No good to anyone sitting in the stand!

3.) 07 Feb 2019 08:36:23
Morelos ye apart from foot on the old Crown Jewels he enjoys giving them a swift kick in goolys although minimum. he will still get banned 2 ganes.

4.) 07 Feb 2019 09:03:11
Agree Supercoop, thought he was excellent last night until he lost his discipline and self control with McKenna. We should all this morning be talking about his 2 goals, the second of which was up there with the best. Instead we are all talking about the sending off. Great victory though.



23 Jan 2019 23:34:13
tonight performance was dreadful and for some reason we can not raise our game against against smaller teams in the league this is why gerrard gets so annoyed at our players.

For me katic has got to start in defence and i would also consider put mccorie in dm as i feel he offers more presence than jack and breaks up a lot of attacks and covers for the slow defenders and good range of passing.
If we are going play 2 up front then its got be a straight 442 as we need wingers in the team.


1.) 24 Jan 2019 07:25:32
McCrorie is not a better player than Jack - behave yourself. His passing is poor at times - sometimes straight out of play.

2.) 24 Jan 2019 08:37:01

Jack is guilty of giving the ball away as much as McCrorie. Playing Davis in front of McCrorie was a major mistake last night he has hardly played this season and the game went by him.

3.) 24 Jan 2019 09:03:50
No he doesn't. McCrorie and Candeias should still have started last night - same team v them. Katic in for Goldson should have been the only change.

Davis and Defoe need to earn their place and it was naive to throw them straight in.



03 Jan 2019 16:50:27
With us now signing Defoe do fellow fans think he could be morelos replacement as there will be a lot of interest in him.
I hope not would like to see morelos and Defoe play together.


1.) 03 Jan 2019 17:12:21
There is a strong possibility Alfie May go. If a stupid offer comes in, the board may not be able to knock it back. i'm afraid that’s football.

2.) 03 Jan 2019 17:21:25
That was my initial thought that he might be a replacement for Morelos. Hopefully not and if morelos does go it's in the summer to keep the title challenge going this season.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 17:30:51
£20 million would be the silly money that would see him go - after all he is here to win the league (55) and stop cfc getting to 10 in a row.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 17:35:04
Yeh if a good offer comes in he prob will go i just hope not these 2 could form a lethal partnership.

5.) 03 Jan 2019 19:48:10
I think Stevie G will do everything he can to keep Morelos. Remember Defoe has the clause to be recalled at various times so I doubt Gerrard would thanks the gamble of selling Alfie unless we get another striker in.

yeh has been coming because of media highlighting everything he does never see them doing this with any other player. how the can see what happend as violent conduct is beyond me. Well we will soon find out if we can cope without him I bet any money we will struggle is his absence offers so much to the team.

well a guess we will soon find out if the ref got it right if appeals are lodged.
The amount of criticism aimed at morelos is terrible he is a class above anyone in our team we should be supporting the lad not slagging him off puts 100 percent in every game and like previous comments a wish we had more player like him and this is gerrard loves having at the club.
He is only 22 years of age so still has a lot to learn but weighing up the positives and negatives to his game then we defiantly need to try keep him at our club as long as possible.

to all the fans calling our star striker a idiot ect if it was not for that idiot that use call him then we wouldn't be anywhere near the top of the table we are now.

Who else in that team can score goals with the exception of Jermaine Defoe our team struggle to score without him that's how important he is to the team. When we loose Alfredo permantley we are going be in big trouble unless we spend a lot of money on a replacement he will be a big lose to the club.

morelos done very little wrong he left his leg dangling witch he is entitled to do as there is a player on the floor underneath him there was no motion toward Aberdeen player.

We may as well wrap our players up and give them a way as a free gift
with some of the valuations i have seen for our players on hear.
docherty 1 million morelos 10 million tavanier 7 million it is all English clubs that are meant be interested in our players so should achieve more than the above figures mentioned look at what clubs down south are paying for average players.

Spot on post i just hope gerrard learns from these mistakes and we can have a clear out of the squad in the summer as it is really needed we have to many squad players just now at the club or on loan
This would then allow us to free money up to buy quality players and support them with our younger players as squad players.
I am not in favour of the loan market and do not want to see this many loan players at the club again use our youngsters instead.

When we have won games this season i have seen gerrard come out after games and still said it was a bad performance for me this is not right he should be building players confidence not demolition morale.
He is the one in charge of picking tactics and picking the team so when things are not going well results or in game wise why does he not change tactics or make subs eirley instead of leaving it and hoping for the best.
Gerrard is the one in charge but he doesn't seem to be learning from the mistakes he makes and does the same things over and over again and we end up with same poor performances.
It is not just one of games we are poor we are consistently poor in a lot of games and only turning up for a few games a season.
If he is going to keep blaming the players man up and drop the players that are not performing even if it has to be for some of our youth players i bet they would give 100 percent for the jersey.
I do not want gerrard to go but he has got start changing things he does to get the best out of these players or he is going to find himself in trouble.

Gerrard job is to manage the players choose the team change tactics motivate the players recommend signings.
So why does gerrard see it fit to criticise the players even when the win he comes out says performances ain't good enough.

Good post agree with everything that is said especially the youth players more should be getting chances they can be no worse than the squad players we have that are wasting a wage.
Come the summer rather than loan players sign first team quality players then back them up with our own young players.

With the money we would have to pay i think this could be better spent elsewhere as Middleton and kent have the ruffly the same goals and assists this season plus Murphy and Jones can play there.
The young lad Hastie looks good and should be on our radar but we will need to act fast ask clubs already want him.
