A lot of the players we bought this season will be better next season, if they all gel and realise what it is to play here. From where we were this time last year to now, or even a few years ago, we have had a good season what ever way you look at it. We were never going to win the league this season and I am disappointed to not get a cup but we will be stronger next season. This could be the year where we don't make wholesale changes and just get a few quality players and we will see a much stronger team next season. The players that are there are playing for there place and to see if they can close the gap. we have a couple of good players out on loan so we van look forward to good season.

i totally get what your saying damo and i'm still right behind steve g and think he's the right man to take us forward but we must get rid of the deadwood like barasic and candeas who will be picking up decent wages, candeas gives his all and cares for the club but sorry a winger that can't cross the ball to save his life is a luxury we don't need and barisic he is just a waste of a jersy what the backroom team saw in him i don't know he is powder puff and totally uninterested in our great football team and needs dropped asap but i agree what your saying there is something there to build on next season but we need 4 or 5 decent players signed for next season or it will be the same story.


2.) 15 Mar 2019 11:01:08
Barasic was cracking at first, just needs to rediscover his form IMO. Would love to see us keep this squad for a change, we are never going to win the league when we have 80% + of new players.


3.) 15 Mar 2019 11:59:58
Think a lot of it comes down desire on a game to game basis. We know they can perform, we've seen some great individual and team performances to prove it. The difference is we go up against lesser quality teams that make up the difference with sheer guts and desire to win each ball and tackle. This was similar in our travels up the leagues. We were miles better than any team but these lower division teams had guys that were right up for getting anything off Rangers, if only for bragging rights down the pub after the game, fair play to them whatever drives you to play to 100%.
At this time we're no better than the rest of the league who can put in a good performance now and again but will go through more bad patches than title winning team can afford. Back in the day we thought nothing of going on a 8.9.10 game streak so far we've managed 4 I think. Even Livingston have managed that at one point. I don't think for a second Gerrard is telling them to go out and half arse their effort in particular games. These are grown men they should be the ones to tell themselves "I'm going out every game and I'm going to chase everything down, work my socks and off leave it all out on the park cause that's what it takes" if they're thinking "might just go easy today" or "I didn't like the way someone spoke to me this week so I'm not up for this" that's not the type of player Rangers need, maybe they can go to Hearts or Motherwell where the odd poor performance is tolerated more. Was at the game on Tuesday and right from the kick off I could sense something wasn't right. The way aberdeen were buzzing about from the kick off and we seemed to want to ease into the game. Sorry a cup game against a big rival you don't get to ease into anything and have it all your own way and we don't seem to get that.
We can all see that teams just come in and sit in until we run out of ideas then look to pounce around the 75/ 80min mark and steal something. It's frustrating as hell but who can blame them, it works and we're at fault for letting it work. You can't tell me teams don't sit in against Celtic, the difference is they will try balls out wide, balls in the channels, shots from out the box. The variety puts teams off where as every team knows we're going to play 10 passes between the back four and the DM then push it wide and hope that one of the balls into the box just happens to land at a Rangers player. And what do we do when that doesn't work, nothing just the same old speculative balls in without any real purpose or intent to find a blue jersey. I'd say the goals we do make from out wide are almost more luck than anything when you look at how many crosses we put in that go into areas no one is standing or into a box loaded with the opposition because we couldn't catch a team on the break if we tried. How many times have we seen us burst up the park only to stand on the ball and wait for everyone to get back into shape, pointless. We're not fooling anyone with our style of play, except maybe ourselves. All this calm, pass pass pass pass, taking the easy ball time and time again is okay when you've produced the skill and effort needed to get 2 or 3 goals and kill a game but we don't seem to have a different gear regardless of the scoreline. Like teams are going to be blown away by our ability to pass the ball along the halfway line that they'll fall to pieces in awe is naive and we need more than two or three players that are keen to beat a man or make pass in the channels or just something different. Defoe has come here as a proven penalty box poacher, ball at this feet goal scorer. Why are we playing high balls into him. I don't know defoe as well as gerrard but I can recall enough of his goals to know the type of service he thrives on and there is no plan to get that to him at Rangers. McCoist was that type of player and the tactic was obvious, everyone bust a gut to get the ball up to him and put it on his toes in the box and he'll do the rest. Boyd was the same. the minute we moaned he wasn't doing enough in other areas of the pitch he dropped deeper to keep people happy and what happened, the goals dried up. Then he goes back to killie who use him the way he works best and lo and behold he's the top scorer. It's not rocket science and people getting paid for the pleasure should be able to see this if I can.


4.) 15 Mar 2019 12:47:14
Hard to argue with that magic mols, inconsistency has been our downfall again this season. If we performed in all games the way we did against celtic at ibrox we would be strolling to the title. It has to be a mentality issue. We were up for the euro games but put aberdeen killie hibs or whatever infront of us and we don't turn up. I remember we played hibs at ibrox just before christmas and if we won we would have went into the game against celtic top of the league ( if I remember right), anyway we drew, its like we lack the big game mentality. Then after the winter break we had the chance to really pressure celtic and we fall at the first hurdle. It frustrates the life out of me because we really should be in a much better position. 👍.


5.) 15 Mar 2019 14:53:18
i think the tactics we currently play do not get the best out certain players and some players just keep playing regardless of there form this needs to change going forward.
Gerrard has got to start to realise when things are not right and change it before match or in matches a lot quicker than he has.
There certainly needs to be a clear out of players this would then allow us to use the wages for quality players and then use or youth players as backup.
players to go should be
flanagan worral coulibaly dorrans fodringham wallace mcauley davis and possibly rossiter barisic and Defoe
the first players mentioned above would free up a lot of wages alone.


6.) 15 Mar 2019 15:32:25
I think Candy is getting a rough deal. He works his socks off and can put in some excellent balls and has a good turn of pace, admittedly some of his crosses are poor, but what winger doesn't suffer from this. He has had a hand in 8 goals this season, with Kent involved in 9 so not much difference there. If all our players showed the same commitment and desire as the Portuguese then we would be a much stronger team.


7.) 15 Mar 2019 15:59:32
Craig good call re players, I'd keep last three.
Add Herrera, holt dodoo Alnwick to free up wages.


8.) 15 Mar 2019 16:05:09
I think candies is getting a real hard time. He was played well going forward this season and this defensive cover is excellent for a winger. Granted some of his crosses are shocking but if we wanted to buy a winger who is quick, links up well with the RB, scores goals, gets assists, covers back and every cross is a roaster he would cost a fortune, folk have to be realistic with their expectancy of our current players. It’s not like days gone by when we had great players. This is no excuse but we are going in the right direction, slowly but surely!


9.) 15 Mar 2019 16:31:30
Candieas may graft a lot but he hits so many crosses in and 9/ 10 of them will be overhit or hit the first man but then 1/ 10 will be a good cross its frustrating.


10.) 15 Mar 2019 16:41:50
Good post magic mols, goldston in particular slows it all down, need to get ball forward much quicker, as does Worrall and Katic.


11.) 15 Mar 2019 18:09:32
Forgot to add alnwick dodoo holt and herrera that along would add up to a lot of wages and these players are certainly not contributing so would be no loss to the team.
Like other i feel candeias is getting slagged a lot on hear maybe if we had more players like him we would be in a better position.
But i do feel we need a good player to compete with him for that role
If we can add 4 5 players with real quality in the final third mixed what we have and the younger lads like docherty mccorie Middleton serge atakayi dapo mepbude zak rudden aidain Wilson Stephen kelly liam Burt cammy palmer i am sure all these lads could make a impact as squad rotation players maybe even some starting games rather than fork out thousands on players we do not use.


12.) 16 Mar 2019 10:05:46
Please whatever yous do stop putting Boyd into the same debate or argument as McCoist or even try to compare them. McCoist was 5 times the player Boyd was.


13.) 16 Mar 2019 13:23:11
I think every player we bought for Money needs to be given a chance next season. I remember when the unwashed signed Rogic (as 1 example) and he was terrible the first season so they put him out on loan for 6 months and when he came back he was one of their better players. Warnock, Redknapp and others have said many times as managers when you sign Foreign players you will see the best out of them after 12 months as it can take some players a good bit of time to adapt to a new lifestyle, club, expectations, way of playing. So let's get behind Katic, Barisic, Grezda and add quality in the squad with 4 good signings and promote some quality youth - while getting rid of Fod, Alwick, Wallace, Worrel, Flanagan, Coulibaly, Davis, Candeias, Holt, Dodoo, Herrera, McCauley and change Captain to a real leader.


14.) 18 Mar 2019 12:59:45
We managed a 6 game winning run and a 5 but that’s was across competitions. I think there are decent players in the team but a hell of a lot of guys I would get rid of, Dodoo, Herrera, Dorrans, McCauley, Worral, Hodson, Rossiter, hate to say it but prob Davis and Defoe too. Probably more I’m forgetting but to many sucking a wage. I think Gerrard can turn things around or I hope he can but i think we need to stick with him because we can’t keep changing managerball the time. I honestly think he has potential.


15.) 01 Apr 2019 06:47:36
Sick of hearing "Candeias puts a good shift in" playing for Rangers that should be a given. His job is to score and create chances. He does neither often enough and his pal at right back is just as bad. Every game he loses possession in bad situations and puts us under the cosh. Also look at the amount of goals we lose in his position.
We will never win the league with that right side.
As for the Barasic haters, he is a class act and a proper full back. He just needs time to settle into a big club, he will come good.
I also have high hopes for Grezda, you just don't lose that guys ability overnight. A good pre season under him and he'll be like a new signing.
Although the table doesn't suggest it, I'm of the opinion we have moved on a lot this season and I'm very hopeful we will mount a better challenge next season.
Even more so if gunpowder teeth is in charge.

What a performance from glen Middleton this boy is destined for the top . Enjoy the lad while he is here I think Scotland might have a star on there hands.

1.) 22 Sep 2018 01:02:18
I think RANGERS might have a star on their hands. Scotland? Who cares?


2.) 22 Sep 2018 08:32:50
What do you mean enjoy the lad whilst he is here? What's to say that he wouldn't want to stay? Why would he want to leave other than the obvious factor of money to a mediocre EPL side?

Rangers are going places and most of the boys on our books will not play for a bigger club.


3.) 22 Sep 2018 09:49:04
Duty calls. absolutely stupid comment. If the lad is quality then why wouldn’t he want to play for the most successful club in the Work and proudly wear the teddy bears top every week?

Absolute nonsense you talk.


4.) 22 Sep 2018 10:02:56
Get a grip!

If he reaches his potential we will not be able to keep him -

We are an insignificant club nowadays because the game is all about money.

Like it or not Scottish football is a backwater.


5.) 22 Sep 2018 10:53:23
Dutycalls, myself and many other Rangers fans care about the Scotland team. Hope that answers the question.


6.) 22 Sep 2018 12:13:09
Sorry guys but dutycalls is correct.

Only interested in fact that Rangers may have a star on our hands. Whether he eventually stars for Scotland is irrelevant.


7.) 22 Sep 2018 12:21:08
Gibby it seems to me you talk absolute nonsense because if you read his post correctly he quite obviously means Rangers have a star on their hands and couldn’t care about the Scottish national team. Jeezo.


8.) 22 Sep 2018 13:21:02
Gibby, if I'm stupid for saying exactly the same as you, what does that make you? Imbecile springs to mind.


9.) 22 Sep 2018 14:49:18
Agree with pappy, Scotland needs fresh young talent too.


10.) 22 Sep 2018 16:35:38
Slim jim. Irrelevant to you but not irrelevant.


11.) 22 Sep 2018 17:58:10
Pappy, it is totally irrelevant. Rangers pay his wages and give him the best of care. So what he does for anyone else and that includes Scotland is most certainly irrelevent.

Being a star for the famous is all that matters.


12.) 22 Sep 2018 19:21:37
If he continues to develop the way he is then he will be a star for club and country, it is very important what he does for scotland because if he can produce at a level such as international level then that will benefit Rangers as it will bring another player with international experience that will help us push on as a team and a club. So no, being an international is not irrelevant👍.


13.) 22 Sep 2018 19:32:30
Kasmania82 we might big one of the biggest but there are plenty of smaller teams in England who have 10 times the money we have.


14.) 22 Sep 2018 19:39:43
Slim jim. Its all that matters to you! Your not the centre of the universe. A good Scotland team means a lot to me and many others so your talking nonsense. All the better if its got some Rangers players in it. Plus international caps boosts value and reputation of a player.


15.) 23 Sep 2018 15:04:49
Plus being an international adds money if the boy ever moves on. Trust me it won't be irrelevant to Glenn Middleton, representing your country is the ultimate dream for most kids.


16.) 24 Sep 2018 00:18:38
My point was if Middleton is to play well against some of the top nations he will be noticed . If a club come in with a crazy offer, the club will have to accept it as we don't have the money we once had . If we can get talented players in and make them better, maybe make 4 or 5 times the money spent on a player then we are doing great . if Middleton can keep progressing he could become a special player for us and Scotland and make the club slot of money.


17.) 24 Sep 2018 15:45:26

22 Sep 2015 23:26:51
Everyone needs to calm down I am not happy with the result but I think it is what we needed the players will learn more from the defeat than 11 wins now the season will really start and we want the Scottish cup anyway and don't forget this team have been together for a few months so onwards and upwards Morton will get the back lash

damo666

1.) 23 Sep 2015 07:30:57
I don't think we were actually as bad as was made out we hit the bar and missed a sitter. They were clinical with great goals to be honest. The goals could have been avoided with tigher marking but wr have to move on.

They are used to playing at a higher level and match so perhaps we would need a few of these games to get upto speed.

Hopefully we can go on a decent Scottish Cup run but ultimately the main goal is promtion and i'd be absolutely thrilled with that.


2.) 23 Sep 2015 09:14:16
I have to agree camoo we made mistakes last night and got punished. If waghorn had of scored that header I think we would of levelled the match. My only criticism is that we need a strong holding midfielder to protect the back 4 and against better opposition haliday is showed up as not a holding midfielder. I'd give dominic ball ago in that position.


3.) 23 Sep 2015 09:20:12
We had 12 shots they had 6, we had only 2 + 1, that hit the bar, on target they had 4, basically their goalie made 1 save.
We had 60 % possession and were unable to use it. Loved Warb's post match comments.

I posted recently I thought we were mid-table premier standard, last night has not changed my mind. Best of luck to St. Johnstone in the cup. I really hope we get them in he Scottish cup and see what we have learned.

I am yet to be convinced on our goalie, we all know we are light in numbers for cover in defence, midfield did not create enough and we obviously need a striker. I am convinced the manager and board well address at least most of these areas before next season.


4.) 23 Sep 2015 08:13:57
ur right i don't think we were as bad but for the first timewe lost thhe first goal and lady luck was not with us we had our moments if waghorn had scored at 3 1 we might have got something and as i thought the centre of defence was frail but i have thought that from the start but tommy wrights tactics were spot on i must also say no blame can be attached to the goalkeeper


5.) 23 Sep 2015 08:32:44
CAMOO
I think we were poor but agree with the rest of what you say.
It was like watching us in many European games years ago; we lacked practice at the level of speed and strength that we were up against. I am sure MW will fix one way or another and the real test will be the next top league team we play.


6.) 23 Sep 2015 09:13:48
To be fair, they missed a sitter too.We need different options, a big target man like Hately or pros teams are getting used to us only playing on the ground


7.) 24 Sep 2015 14:45:09
Lose 1 game and people want a target man striker again. If I never see rangers play long balls to target men I'll be delighted.


8.) 24 Sep 2015 19:51:08
Don't know if you were being sarcastic or not fellow bear but I'm loving the ground football being played but teams are used to that would be good to get big striker in so we could change our style just a bit but to be more honest we just need a greedy targetman

The only difference between us and them this season, is if we had beaten them at celtic Park, We were 10 behind and got beaten 2/ 1, if the score had gone the other way we would of been 7 behind and just 3 behind going into the old firm, in a match that we should of won with 10 men. We could of had a helicopter day so the season has been closer than people think. It's all what ifs, but they are the for the taking and everyone know it, Davis and kamarra have been the steel and flair our team needed, stronger going forward and better at the back, great signings for 50 k amazing. we have had a great season and I never really thought we could win it this season after the mess that Gerrard took over, We will be stronger next season with a more settled squad and can't wait for next season, not many celtic fans can say that.

The only difference is Damo THEY WON THE TITLE. If this and if this matters NOT A JOT! Look forward now forget this season. And they could say if this and if that as well. It’s all about next season now. We’ve NO ONE to blame but ourselves 👍🏻.


4.) 16 May 2019 08:13:16

Bribuoy
If i’ve learned one thing coming from NI, never count your chickens or be too arrogant about a situation. If you’re an honest punter you’ll accept that most of your current 8 league wins came from the upheaval at Rangers,
( not Celtic’s fault ) but still a FACT, so draw in your horns and bum about your achievements from next season, when at least you have a team to play against, not a lot of wee teams who are picking up players from the English national league.


 

 

19 Mar 2019 08:23:44
Katic, barasic, grezda will all be a lot stronger next season as they know what it is to play for the club and will have settled. Middleton, mcrorrie and a few youths to come in with a few new signings we will be fine, oh and I think doc is the missing link in our midfield. Box to box, strong and will run all day but has come on to a game as well. Stevie g needs another season to really make a difference and I think we will see a better rangers next season. keep the faith.

Scotlands Co efficient has gone up just shy of 2 champions league places. Scotland try to knock us but they need us more than ever. We have made the difference this season and Scotland as a football league and nation will get better. We will see the best of some of this year's signing next year, when they get a full preseason and have bedded in, this season was all about steadying the ship and I think we are on the right road. In sg we trust.

1.) 22 Feb 2019 09:25:35
Wrong. We were one result away from our league winners playing a qualifier less
Nothing else.


2.) 22 Feb 2019 20:17:08
As I understand Scotland are in 19th place in the co eficient just shy of playing 1 less round in qualies 15th place gets you a 2nd placed team in CL but the points we need to get to 15th place is way out our reach.


3.) 23 Feb 2019 01:00:31
AS1974 where are you? Before killie game you came on here spouting negativity saying we would get beat and Stevie had no future with us ( thing you might be from dark side right enough ) . At least come on praise the team and tell Stevie you will give him another chance? No.


 

 

19 Jan 2019 13:14:15
Defoe was on 70 grand a week at Sunderland, he left for Bournemouth at the age of 34 so I can't see how he would be on nearly double that at Bournemouth. If you add his signing on bonus and goal bonuses then it would equate to 100 + grand a week, I think we will be paying about 30 grand a week . Some of the stories have said he would be on 6 times the best earner at the club but that makes no sense as I think morelos is on nearly 30.

damo666

1.) 19 Jan 2019 14:08:01
Aye. I have seen it on other press and Bournemouth fans sites saying around 60k per week so around half that for us. Not a chance he would be on anywhere near 120k p/ w.


2.) 19 Jan 2019 14:54:41
I would be amazed if we were paying Defoe this sort of cash and if we are it is concerning? King is obviously taking a big risk at the thought of the league title but there must be someone investing as our debt just continues to go up although money was generated through the Euro run? . Just hope the board no what they are doing and if doesn’t lead us into more financial trouble as I couldn’t cope with more woes! 🇬🇧.


3.) 19 Jan 2019 17:13:11
None of us knows what the players earn unless you're his agent. This mince about Morelos earning £30k makes my eyes water and Defoe has never been on the money talked about here. And Yately, I think the board has nothing to prove when it comes to knowing what they are doing. What a ridiculous, negative piece of nonsense. Big risk? Someone investing? You need to get out more, your posts are becoming more and more like supercooper.


4.) 19 Jan 2019 17:51:05

Boys we have got the mankies terrified so let’s enjoy that for a moment without having a go at each other . 10 in a row has to be stopped at all costs. otherwise this could go on forever. we might have in our hands the best chance we might ever get . I think the board and DK know this and are going for it . Who cares how . we will never sink to the depths we did as that was due to vultures trying to strip our great club for every ounce of income DK and board will Never let that happen again.


7.) 19 Jan 2019 21:40:35
Yately1 i wouldn't let this goatherd worry you pal! There's some nasty pieces of s**t on here who are more interested in trying to degrade fellow gers supporters, who all have wide ranging opinions! Someone else posted this and is spot on, "who needs celtic fans on here, when we've got nasty pieces of s**t, who call themselves rangers fans"! I truly have my doubts about them! Moonmen.


8.) 20 Jan 2019 00:12:08

Don't forget, the loan players all played there part in us going as far as we did in Europe, apart from sadiq. I thank all of them for there time at the club. It has been a great season so far and and without them there would not have been some great nights at ibrox. Now we need a few quality players and we might have a real league challenge.

They have banned a man that has been betting with the league and Cup sponsors. There is irony in there somewhere .

Morelos was the best player on the pitch tonight, he is better than last season already, as he has mutured on the field and his all round game has inproved. I would not like to defend against him, you just never know what he is going to do.

You are missing the point, just like your team on Sunday. There is no gap and we are coming for you. Celtic are broken and we are just getting started.

We are through to the semi final in the Mercedes benz junior Cup under 19 s. The team that is there is a very young team and they have played very well. Some great players of this generation have played in this tournament. Kelly, Palmer, Mayo, Mbude amoungst others have looked the part for us, against boys a year or 2 older. With the coaches we have now i think we will see more players from the academy make the grade.
