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

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.



19 Feb 2019 10:38:44
Does anyone know if the replay is even going to be on the radio?


1.) 19 Feb 2019 11:37:59

2.) 19 Feb 2019 12:04:44
lol yeah. So has anyone every watched a game on periscope before? Think that is only way.



25 Jan 2019 09:24:14
I see a lot of comments about poor formation or poor pitch or boys not trying in last game and am not agreeing or disagreeing in a sense. But watching the game you can’t tell me at the start up to about 10-15mins we looked really good and I thought we were going to put a few past them. Passing was slick ball retention was good. Then we had a slip up and it seemed to spread through out the team. Like they noticed they were on an artificial pitch and it was bothering them, even though am sure they have one at the Hummel. Anyway. First 10-15. Gerrard had the tactics correct, but when heads went down he couldn’t seem to motivate from the side. Then we had half time, and I don’t know if you guys noticed but at start of the season we always seemed to come out after half time like a team reborn. Hunting and winning, we don’t have that atm for some reason. I think it’s wrong to blame a pitch personally, although I don’t think they should be in top flight football I do understand the need for them. I think his tactics were working but a mistake threw the team and he couldn’t fix it. His subs were reactive rather than proactive. Which for a rangers manager is not what’s expected. But am behind the manager, he needs seasons, am behind the team (bar Worrell. He can go home, £12million?!? ) .


1.) 25 Jan 2019 10:30:01
said in the live chat, the reason we started so well was we caught Killie out by setting up different to what they expected. Clarke theb adapted to match us and we then didn't do anything different. Lack on plan B or flexibility.

2.) 25 Jan 2019 11:04:22
Spot on comment Fintytint, we started well and never recovered from the poor goal.

3.) 25 Jan 2019 11:56:00
fintytint its been story of the season regarding subs

doesnt seem like he knows who and when to make changes. as you say reactive instead of proactive

always seems to make strange subs at strange times, also when we are behind i want more from a manager than jsut standing with hands in his pockets looking around like he isn't sure what to do.

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.

Defoe is getting his chance now and for all Gerrard saying the morelos thing is in the past I don't believe it. If Defoe starts to put the ball in the net I doubt Morelos will even get a start before the end of the season and will then be sold. If we secure 2nd I would rather see a youngster brought in for last games than Morelos.

Can I just point out that with going to the 3rd we should have been playing the youth instead of buying our way out of the divisions. If we had there would have been a lot of rangers players in that scotland team.

Arthur D. Of course I did. I sat next to a die hard celtic fan who used to chant barry fergusons name during the matches. When they pull of a scotland jersey the are playing for a team I support.
Also I just can't understand this refusal to support our national team because of what the association done. That has nothing at all to do with following the team of your birth.
I honestly don't care if certian fans boo a player because they play for a certain team domestically, I feel sorry for them and worry that the game might finish after there bed time and there mum will be angry.
Domestic football is totally different from international.
