That to me (bar worrell for goldson) was our true first team. Defoe and Davis will need to prove they are good enough to claim a spot.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 11:11:47
We lost our edge when kent went off. We need width👍.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 17:40:12
Finty tint Davis and Defoe don't need to prove anything what did arfield do that Davis couldn't do better.

3.) 28 Jan 2019 22:21:52
Momentum, if you have it why disrupt it.

4.) 28 Jan 2019 23:01:15
arfield had a hand in all 3 goals mate

i like davis and think he’ll be good for us, but for now scotty has the jersey.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 23:40:49
davis > arfield. Just me that finds arfield sluggish? Often caught on heels etc and just not a natural 10? Movemenr is laboured at the best of times for me. Davis is the best mf in the league if fit imo.

6.) 29 Jan 2019 01:34:10
We missed Arfield through suspension and injury in November time was it? And I remember we struggled without him. He’s not flashy but he is a link between Morelos and the holding mids. He’s also a hard worker and suits a high press.

He was unreal in the Old Firm game. Won his battles vs Brown.

What’s Davis shown so far to take the jersey off him? Don’t get me wrong I’m delighted to have both players. Strength in depth is key.

7.) 29 Jan 2019 12:48:03
Bear is right on this subject, as an Ulster guy I love wee Davis, but I wouldn’t drop Arfield if the guy is doing his job, Stevie Davis will have to earn his place on the field, and I’ve no doubt he will, he’s a class act.



28 Sep 2018 22:41:03
With regards to the striker situation for semi final. I could personally see him forming a rotating front 3 in a 433. Middleton/ kent/ grezda being my choices as its obvious by gerrards comments that sadiq is not getting on the park anytime soon.


1.) 28 Sep 2018 23:33:10
I like the way you are thinking fintytint 3 rapid and skillful players, I think they would cause havoc.

2.) 29 Sep 2018 11:07:17
Candias has to play.

3.) 29 Sep 2018 17:51:08
Fintyfint, exactly what I said two days ago.

4.) 01 Oct 2018 12:56:00
Candias has shown nothing this season to suggest that. Been poor more often than good.



08 Aug 2018 12:43:53
I think at 6pm tomorrow gerrard will know if he can get anyone else from liverpool ie solanke.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 20:50:27
Fintyint i'd prefer the two Bosnian lads signed instead of loan deals.



02 May 2018 10:18:41
Hate doing this but I was told by someone that seems to be in the know. That yes Gerrard is coming and that King is stepping back to just be on the board and be a shareholder. Investment is coming from USA. No idea who, no idea how much. didn't have much time to speak to the guy. He did say its expected to all be done within the next 2 weeks so am assuming end of season. Just passing on.


1.) 02 May 2018 10:35:25
We all have our own assumptions of King but he is a very astute and competent businessman. Can't help but think there is shrewd reason as to why he's missed the share deadline and is there a bigger picture regarding what you have mentioned.

2.) 02 May 2018 10:49:16
Letting himself be dragged through the courts in SA for years due to his tax dodging wasn't very astute. And his dealings with the Takeover Panel haven't been very competent have they?

3.) 02 May 2018 11:21:44
We've met to have huge investment for the for the past 2year n still waiting lol

4.) 02 May 2018 17:59:45
And an astute business man would have money king has stood up in a court of law and says he has none. So he's either skint or a conman. No room for either at our club in my eyes

5.) 02 May 2018 19:56:01
What do we all think will happen if big investment is made in our club? That the investors are just putting money in because they have a few quid spare in the bank and won't miss it? If the stated 25-30mil investment is coming what is it going to be brokered against. That is my only concern. An for that matter i'm sure that 30mil wouldn't be far off what would be needed to buy our club at this point in time. i'm not buying into this whole situation.



19 Mar 2018 13:49:37
I think something you have to realise is that managers like steve clarke and tommy wright. Don't have opposition sitting with 11 men behind the ball setting up banks of defence. Rangers and celtic do. Did Steve Clarke make an amazing tactical change in the game to re address the game play? no he had his team set out one way, defend first and foremost then try find a goal. celtic can dominate play with there midfield so its a lot harder to score against them if you don't have the ball. We try it but can't do it.

I don't think Murty is the answer but I am not demanding him out. Possibly the main reason is who the hell can we get that will fill his place? and be a guarantee top manager? If there is money from the share issue. Forget getting players in first. Spend it on a manager. A great manager can work with lesser value players to create something.

Sometimes I actually feel out team is set out too attacking. Unfortunately we are were we are. Maybe a lot to do with pedro or the board or the players I honestly don't know. All we can ask is that we finish strong being tenacious and carrying abit of luck.


1.) 19 Mar 2018 14:54:05
Steve Clarke

2.) 19 Mar 2018 17:23:50
So your answer to beating teams that pack their defence against us is to play less attacking? When we currently start every game with one up top? Strikes as a bit of an odd one to me.

The issue we have when teams do this is that we don't have players with the guile or a bit of magic to break them down. At the weekend, to a man, every player was waiting on someone else to do something.

Windass pops up with goals but is too often hiding. Murphy is trying and has ability, but constantly cuts onto his right, running in field right to where the numbers are. We need wingers that will stretch a back line and a number 10 that puts his foot on the ball and can play a cute pass to open something up. Either that or commit to two up top more regular and let Cummings and Fredo try to build a partnership.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 17:24:40
I remain all for graeme murty to be given a chance, to become our permanent manager, at the end of the season, on a 12 month rolling contract! I honestly don't see a gamble on doing that! However, if this board of ours does decide to change, they should look at the fantastic record of belgian manager preud'homme has! He has a very impressive CV and is very experienced!

4.) 19 Mar 2018 18:29:54
See these days Coop mate, I reckon youd be quicker listing the folk you don't rate ;)

5.) 19 Mar 2018 22:29:32
I'm really wondering now if supercoop is actually one of the other mob. We have not progressed one little bit bar playing some fancy football against non league and lower league teams yet he wants to persist with the current manager. Why anyone could be happy with the way this season has went I will never know and murty has played a massive part in that. We are in real danger in finishing with a worse points tally than last season which included some dreadful results and a change in management. I'm sorry but I'm not going to happily accept scraping to be 2nd best and that will continue under murty

6.) 20 Mar 2018 08:09:41

Think we will probably beat last years points however not by many and i agree about Murty we haven’t moved forward as some fans seem to think. He isn’t the answe and it’s astonishing some still can’t see this

7.) 20 Mar 2018 08:59:32
maybe I am overthinking but on TV after match Clarke made a point about saying his brothers were big Killie fans thereby distancing himself from the dark side which is the team I have been told the family support and have seen that on here.
I do not know the family at all but does anyone know for sure if he is from a Killie or Dhim background?

8.) 21 Mar 2018 02:30:44
Murty ain't the answer . Billy Davies. de Boer no. Eddie Howe Sean dyche young managers who. manage with what they have no big transfer budgets but bloody successful . dint they prove that week in week out in think. howe or dyche next manager

9.) 23 Mar 2018 10:39:57
Murty is a good coach and now we have a dof in place i see no reason to bin murty off i think its pretty obvious that Mark Alan is recruiting the players murty is doing a fair job i think he should be given a full season to see what he can do if we shed some dead weight and bring in a few good replacements i think we could hit the ground running starting from scratch again could be costly

Maybe its me, maybe I just don't get it really. But this anti scotland thing is going over my head. Name the rangers players that could walk into the scotland team? Clarke is a poor manager which I have said before, McLeish is a far better manager, its the players that are poor, they don't turn up. Look at N. I. players playing for a team they love, I don't see it with scotland. But Clarke is now the manager and as much as I don't rate him I will still be behind the team, but guys come on, do you honestly think the SFA and scotland backroom staff have some secret agenda to stop rangers playing for the national team? Do you believe we landed on the moon? A manager is not going to risk his job by 'hating' a club that much that he doesn't pick there players. The 'SFA' aren't going to force us to not win anything. We didn't win anything, that's nothing to do with SFA, that's players and managers. Just seems like some of you are looking for someone/ thing to blame.
Yes Clarke spoke about the abuse he received from US. but not much about the boyd thing, but boyd did speak about it. You don't know if boyd told him not to mention it and forget it. Its conjecture.


1.) 12 Jun 2019 12:12:07
Sorry you lost me at saying Big Eck is the better of the two managers. Respect for Big Eck but he is well past it.

2.) 12 Jun 2019 18:59:12
Snell, he is 4 years older than Clarke and is not required to play football anymore. For the life of me I can't get my head roind why Clarke would be a better appointment. The group of players is probably the poorest for a long time. If you thought results were bad under Eck just wait and see what is in store for you under the jakey Clarke. Batten down the hatches lol.

3.) 12 Jun 2019 20:24:34
Think Clarke is a doughnut (putting it very mildly) but he did do some job at Killie and I will happily admit that.

No need to batten down anything here though Seeker mate totally apathetic to the Scotland team! Not actively hoping they lose but not interested in watching either ?.

4.) 13 Jun 2019 01:01:30
It’s not the fact there are no rangers players that pissed me off, it’s the fact he called up 4 goalkeepers for 2 games, and also called up players like Brophy, Morgan, mulgrew Devlin and mcnulty, players that should be no where near the squad.

5.) 13 Jun 2019 01:06:05
Stevie Clarke has won nothing as a manager. Yes he did well at killie but he hasn't suddenly made Scotland a better side. Eck maybe is past it now but his managerial career is better than Clarkes.

6.) 13 Jun 2019 14:28:31
I'm the same Snell. Not really bothered one way or another about Scotland. It's all about the Rangers for me.



12 May 2019 21:22:17
Can we just get away from this celtic were just poor rubbish. They said this on the 29/ 12 and now 12/ 5. We never let them play. We made them poor. It wasnt a case of they never turned up or if they had of turned up it would have been a different game. We beat them and never let them play football.


1.) 13 May 2019 06:33:47
spot on finty

always the same when they loose - celtic were just poor the day. hmm wonder why

maybe big kamara meggin lego in a phnbox and scottyarf runnin riot!

now fully fit davis allows us to press, win ball back and keep it under pressure - excellent addition he’s a yard quicker than anyone upstairs - touch and reading of game allowed him to stroll it yday.

2.) 13 May 2019 07:45:57
where were these players earlier in the season?

3.) 13 May 2019 07:53:56
DEEB earlier in the season Kamara was at Dundee, defoe was at Bournemouth and Davis was at Southampton.



14 Mar 2019 12:36:49
Qualification to Europa Group stages (the hardest way possible), Semi final of League cup. Quarter Final of Scottish Cup. Second in league 8 points ahead of third 8 points behind them. that's an improvement. Summer transfer window was good. Winter was poor. We didn't improve the players, they did. Since we beat them we have been poor.
If we get a clear second, as I don't think we can claw back the points, then for a rookie manager in his first season then that's good. Next season is his acid test. He needs to bring european football and he needs a trophy.
Its a process not a magic trick to fix us.
Still 100% behind the manager.
Lets Go.


1.) 14 Mar 2019 13:05:11
Well written fintytint, I agree with u.

2.) 14 Mar 2019 13:07:49
LET'S GO OMG for Wat were out all competitions lol.

3.) 14 Mar 2019 13:11:43
we've gone backwards in domestic cups. As for the leauge were 1pt better off than last season.

The squad is better than last season no doubt. So by that notion why are they only a point better at this stage?

4.) 14 Mar 2019 13:29:50
Sorry fintytint but we have not made progress domestically at all. Sugar coat it whatever way you like but 4 points better off is not progress, less than 50% of the signings have improved us and we have wasted even more millions, that's not progress. Getting pumped out the cups by a team who has a tenth of our budget is not progress. Continually struggling against the better spl sides is not progress.

Like I said, the more fans that make daft excuses and sugar coat the team the more the rest of us have to put up with mediocrity. Its not good enough👍.

5.) 14 Mar 2019 13:35:32
Its not just us in the league. Other teams have improved maybe more than we have in comparison. a lot of time luck hasn't been on our side this season. I mean the hibs game. That should have been 3 points and the dons game back in december. The first game of the season with morelos red card! even taking an extra 4 points from those would have us talking completely differently. Though I know are if's and but's.
I still see an improvement if he can find the team that played on the 29/ 12 or find that never say die attitude that we had going through the europa qualifying stages.
So Dsgerfan no point in going to the rest of the games? No point in coming on here really? I will still be cheering them on if we are playing for nothing.

6.) 14 Mar 2019 14:15:11
A lot of the time luck has been on our side. Morelos goal at hearts shouldn't have stood therefore we should have dropped two points. Morelos should have been sent off at ibrox against celtic, no doubt that would have cost us the win. Swings and roundabouts👍.

7.) 14 Mar 2019 15:41:43
What a crap argument coldco, if Morelos goal at Dundee had stood we would have got two more points, if he had not been wrongly sent off at pittodrie we may have won
If we had got foul at hibs, which allegedly ref says he should have given two more points,
If my auntie had balls she would be my uncle.

8.) 14 Mar 2019 16:37:20
That she would jbhoy👍 the argument works both ways. We have had decisions that have went against us and decisions that have went for us. So by your own theory your own argument is crap🙃👍.

9.) 14 Mar 2019 17:12:03

Was it not Lafferty who scored the goal that was chalked off against Dundee?

10.) 14 Mar 2019 17:49:28
It was lafferty arthur but jbhoy has been a blabbering wreck trying to defend the undefendable, I thought I would afford him that mistake by not correcting him and proving him wrong again😉👍.

11.) 14 Mar 2019 18:52:30
Correct Arthur, cheers.

12.) 15 Mar 2019 08:09:23
A brilliant post finty couldn't agree more, at the start of the season we had do able expectations after last season get closer to celtic get to the group stages of the europa leg and win a cup fair play we fell short in the cup but were getting there, its unfair to ask a manager to walk in pritty much by a new team and over take celtic in a year,4 or 5 good signings this summer and we should be in with a good chance next year, some people are asking for way to much to soon, and for people talking about alfredo to be dropped that's to stupud even to go into ok 3 games not been his best but 28 goals this year and with no real service in the last 3 plus who else is going to score if he's out stupid talk, keep behind the team season not even done yet.



22 Feb 2019 15:51:41
Dont know if any of you have seen the fans camera angle of the killie keepers elbow on kamara. The ref got it sport on. definitely red card.


1.) 22 Feb 2019 18:40:59
100% seen it total shocker.

2.) 22 Feb 2019 19:49:56
Agree it was a red card but why then has Kilmarnock’s appeal been successful and the red recinded by the SFA.

3.) 22 Feb 2019 19:50:53
Makes you wonder then why the SFA recinded it.

4.) 22 Feb 2019 20:08:54
Typical SFA, red card rescinded.

5.) 22 Feb 2019 20:23:22
lets face it is anybody surprised by the card being rescinded i would have been more shocked if it had stood 1 thing for us and another for everybody else its not paranoia its fact liewell and his sfa cronies.

6.) 22 Feb 2019 20:56:39
What about the numorous red card use have had recindid this year? . Away n stop play the poor old us p. h . Tge refs are just terrible full stop and the pannel who reviews are just as inconsistent.

7.) 22 Feb 2019 21:17:23
what red did we have rescinded we shouldn’t have EOB?

I agree refs are awful but just curious to hear your views.

8.) 22 Feb 2019 22:10:14
Celticeob, is that the same as the anti catholic card pi$h🤔, I agree that the refs are rotten and the panels are inconsistent but when you come on here preeching the "poor us" pi$h have a look in the mirror before trying to take the moral high ground👍.

9.) 22 Feb 2019 22:11:11
Alfies in the first game against the dons, kicks out off the ball but gets away with it . There there are tje contentious decisions from mcgregor ect, not saying there is a bias just honstly think the officials are terrible in genral.

10.) 22 Feb 2019 23:25:38
Celticeob welcome to the RANGERS rumours, poor old us p. h? Pot kettle and black! Coming from one of USE! We can smell the fear. and still we follow on.



19 Feb 2019 19:52:48
Premier sports are supposed to be showing the game now.


1.) 19 Feb 2019 20:37:00
I think they are providing a delayed broadcast.

2.) 20 Feb 2019 01:30:23
I believe its a delayed broadcast at 10.05pm on FREESPORTS.

3.) 20 Feb 2019 07:57:27
It’s better than nothing. Will just have to switch off phone.

4.) 20 Feb 2019 08:07:56
RTV got live commentary of the game as far as I can see as well as delayed transmission from either premier or freesports not sure which.

5.) 20 Feb 2019 11:26:52
Not sure why a delayed broadcast
Derby v Millwall live on sky tonight.

6.) 20 Feb 2019 12:16:35
Its because we are top division in an association mate. any clashes equal 50k fine and 10% of the revenue we get from europe i think. SFA can't afford to flout the rules.

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.

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.

I think we will see 10 million for him, any more and that's a huge bonus. His inability to stay on the park is his downfall. I would class him in the same level as Tav, his inability to deal with certain defensive situations is his downfall but his attacking play is second to none.

He is a good manager no doubt about that but he has nowhere near the ability or pulling power as brenda rodgers had, still has. They will lose a large amount of first team players, whether that be to contracts ending or people being sold or wanting out of the club. They do however have a much much larger budget to spend on players so this is really like us last year, they need to bring in players that will hit the ground running and that's not an easy task. I do think appointing lennon has played into our hands abit.
Just hope the 55 chat stays quiet and we get on with our own business win our own games bring in the correct players, and hurry up next season am bored at the weekends already.

I think at the end of the day it might be a good thing. If they say flanagans is a red, then its obvious the bias then to everyone watching as its no different to what was done to defoe. If they confirm a yellow as elbow didn't hit browns face, then questions have to arise around why the celtic captain grabbed his face when he dropped to the ground.
Fair play to Defoe, does what a real man does and just gets up no play acting no theatrics.
We know the whole thing is a farce. Re-referring games is a joke. Mistakes happen its part of the game. Where is it going to end up? Do we get to apply because Defoe missed an open goal and want it to be given as he made a mistake in the game and we should have won it?
Am happy if VAR comes in but only if its for goals or red cards.
