Some fans want Skrtel and Defoe well over the age of 30 and mid 30s, others sell on players to make a bit of money. The former may make us competitive for a year and the latter will win us nothing. Gerrard must find a balance of age but must look beyond next season. Neither argument is a winning formula for Rangers fans who like it or not, are in it for life and not a 3 year contract.

Guys we can all slate the prospect of signing older guys all we want, if they are good enough I don’t care! What would you rather have, good experienced pros in at £2m a pop and stop 10 in a row., or sign young guys to sell on later who take time to develop and risk them staying well in front! I know what I’d be doing. BACK THE TEAM!


2.) 20 May 2018 00:40:50
Winning the league gets you a crack at champions league football. Which is 20 million. Better than any player we could sell. Winning the league is more important right now. The chance to blood youngsters was when we got relegated to the bottom tier. I am all for young players but right now winning is more important


3.) 20 May 2018 07:36:49
Those young players we had in the bottom tier apart from Macleod and McKay were brutal.


4.) 20 May 2018 08:32:30
There are good younger players too you know. Celtic seem to keep unearthing them. We have to see return on investment at some stage soon.


5.) 20 May 2018 11:04:28
We are on about bringing in good players to make a return on, Not guys running down their careers, how hard is that to understand? We are being left behind by Celtic and look like making the same mistakes all over again.


6.) 20 May 2018 11:14:44
True about the young players not being great but neither were the guys we signed, cribari, moshni, peralta (rest his soul), Ian black to name a few were all terrible. Our youth set was pretty much non existent back then which was bad business. Coulda save a lot of money and maybe unearthed a gem or 2


7.) 20 May 2018 11:34:10
Bringing in Defoe, sorted and Lucas would be great bits of business. 1 experienced 2 high quality pros. I know there sell on values are zero but having them teach Morelos cummings mcrorie rossiter and our up and coming cb's would make them all better players and that's where the sell on values would be made. Add Stevie G to the mix and we will be attracting a higher quality of youngsters also


 

 

14 Mar 2018 11:31:15
Can't speak for all of social media but I think this page has been fairly kind to Morelos. Of course most of us are disappointed to put it lightly. He's a talent and a goal scorer but he needs to improve a lot of his game and when he misses he misses big time. It was a match screaming out for Cummings all day long and coming off his first ever hat-trick, even more so. If Cummings had played, we would have won.

kfraser

1.) 14 Mar 2018 12:45:51
I Just watched the highlights there the now, have only just managed to bring myself round to it. The one where cummings hits it straight at the keeper on Sunday, it was a magnificent tackle from their defender who deflected it straight at their keeper. The other one was bad!

what i don't get is why is Morelos getting such a hard time, not just on here. Our Central defence was shocking on sunday! i'm better than Cardoso!


2.) 14 Mar 2018 14:49:58
Morelos doesn't deserve the flak he is getting, how many top strikers have missed sitters like that? Almost every one!

What we should be annoyed about is the defence, like what Stuart just mentioned, Cardoso is rank rotten and we were just unlucky that Bates got injured and Martin had picked up a back injury mid week or we would have been solid at the back.

Another issue was Sean Goss which is surprising, but I think the occasion just got to him a bit which is forgivable.


3.) 14 Mar 2018 14:51:52
Defence lost us that game not morelos people need to remember how many games morelos has won for us and stop fixating on his misses.


4.) 14 Mar 2018 15:27:42
Kfraser, sorry can't agree with you I think his all round game is good he is a presence up top he holds ball brings others into play! Yes he misses more than he scores but his contribution to team is vital he's involved in every attack we mount! He's still a young player and has to become more consistent but I'm still happy with him as main striker


5.) 14 Mar 2018 15:43:49
We have conceded more goals than Hearts, Hibs and Aberdeen. Our defensive performance this season has been terrible.


6.) 14 Mar 2018 16:33:42
All our centre halves are brutal and it’s as simple as that.


7.) 14 Mar 2018 18:01:04
Agreed Rick, however I think McCrorie can be one of our centre backs next season along side a new signing, Alves and bates as back up.


8.) 14 Mar 2018 18:27:07
If Alves isn't in the first eleven then he should be moved on to free up some wages. Why would you have our highest earner sitting on the bench?


9.) 14 Mar 2018 19:12:14
Agree with zikos alves should be in team he is quality regardless of what some fans think! Danny Wilson still a strange one for me! And another point is protection from central midfield is key to defending!


10.) 14 Mar 2018 20:30:57
I’m just assuming that we won’t be able to move him on due to the high wages Zikos, obviously if he could be sold or released without having to pay him up then that would be the better option. Whilst he has not been terrible he has not been great either and that’s why I think if he is still about next season then he is backup for a new centre half.


11.) 14 Mar 2018 20:57:47
I'd like us to sign Berra to play alongside mccrorie maybe get malumbu in on a free too


 

 

03 Mar 2018 08:12:56
Good news is that Jamie Murphy looks like he'll be fine and fit for Celtic. I know we need to win tomorrow but I wouldn't risk key players and play our strongest team. We've played in the lower leagues and know some of the tackling is overly robust. We've got a strong enough squad now to be able to rest a few of our starting 11 and beat Falkirk with ease.

kfraser

1.) 03 Mar 2018 11:14:38
Great news, he will be raring to go. I would rest murphy.


2.) 03 Mar 2018 12:35:55
Has i would play a full strength team and keep up this momentum. Hanging the team the now would be silly


3.) 03 Mar 2018 14:20:18
No need to rest anyone IMO, 7 days until the old firm, I think we should go strong and hopefully start fast and bury the game ASAP, then take off anyone we need to!


4.) 03 Mar 2018 14:28:56
Moh wallace etc should play against the bairns get them game time fit etc for nxt weekend


5.) 03 Mar 2018 18:21:53
@Tryanikian Wallace yes but don't want Moh anywhere near the Celtic game


6.) 03 Mar 2018 18:58:39
Yes I would like to c the likes of Miller Wallace job get a full half but only once the game is out to bed


7.) 03 Mar 2018 20:06:16
Falkirk like getting the ball down and playing football as i said before the wee no 10 sibbald is a cracking player, we should play more or less a winning team with a couple of changes then if winning comfortably start the subs early, we can't take this game as a walkover we have to turn up, we don't take it seriously we'll get found out i would rest morales though and anybody close to a suspension


8.) 03 Mar 2018 21:05:05
Need to play the same team why change it we need to keep the momentum going only change I would make is Alves for bates


9.) 03 Mar 2018 21:55:18
Like to see wallace alves and cummings start 2moro our injury record approaching old firms is unbelievable while they always end up having full fit squads against us


10.) 03 Mar 2018 22:28:16
I wouldn't be naive to think we are good enough to just go drop players fur tomorrow as it stands its the biggest game of the season and our route our biggest chance of a trophy i'd play full strength and respect falkirk they are a team who on there day could cause problems we can never take any team lightly


 

 

15 Oct 2015 11:59:49
I've read this week that we're interested in Michael O'Halloran of St Johnstone and John Soutar of Dundee United. Both sound like ideal signings and would fit in well with our style of play and be pretty sure of making the starting 11. That's vital for a career move and they just have to look at an ex-Hibs player, now Celtic, to confirm that one.

kfraser

1.) 16 Oct 2015 13:17:42
Kfraser Soutar would be a good deal if we could capture him but mate we ain't playing a game of Fifa here. We won't get players like that until we get to top flight. SA left hibs for money and now he's kicking himself as he ain't playing. Why is people still going on about this guy SA he made his messy bed let him lay in it. No but honest Soutar would be a good signing young too.

Skrtel, Collins and Defoe age 33,34 and 36! Is this really what some fans want? It's no wonder so many Celtic fans come onto this site. It's for the laughs they get. I'm sure Gerrard would be laughing too.

kfraser

Correct Kfraser, too many people still playing champman and have lost sense of all reality!


2.) 24 May 2018 22:48:45
Defoe was born to score goals he would run a mock up here


 

 

11 May 2018 12:31:29
We have a couple of promising youth players worthy of a shot at the first team. I'm all for one or two established players who might be on Gerrard's radar but players like McGinn of Hibs, Soutar of Hearts and even Gauld at Sporting Lisbon could establish the longer term goal we need to look at and they all understand what Rangers are about. I'm not keen on 30 plus years players wanting to see out the end of their careers at Ibrox.

2.) 11 May 2018 14:27:34
Gonna make myself a hypocrite here. I'd love us to get to the top with homegrown players and prudent buys it would be great. I still want the big investment lol.


3.) 11 May 2018 15:23:34
Mcginn should go down south or to us. Celtic proberly sign him just to stop us. He would play every week for us.


4.) 11 May 2018 15:36:27
If McCoist had done it right that might be the case. All we needed was some experienced players and young boys in division 3 and he went out buying. a lot of players were not needed throughout the process . Perfect opportunity missed.


 

 

06 May 2018 13:44:24
The challenge facing Gerrard and Allen will be offloading players who were paid too high a price. We didn't give new contracts to Wilson and Bates who wanted around 7K a week and papers state crazy wages for a few of Pedro's less than inspired signings. Who will buy them at anything close to what we paid and who will come remotely close to matching their wages? We could be stuck with them for years.

kfraser

1.) 06 May 2018 15:42:34
Kfraser, Wilson didn't request a pay increase, he stated he would play for the same wage.


2.) 06 May 2018 18:32:12
If we want to win league we need much better than Wilson and bates. Why pay wages to guys who won't be in frame


 

 

20 Apr 2018 18:50:24
There are quite a few posters here I have a high opinion of. One or two perhaps not. The point is that there are better opinions set out on this page than you read in most of the papers from ex pros claiming a degree of expertise. Now I know Johnston is not an ex footballer and has every right to express his views but I have to question what curve he's referring to. If we're above his, he's below mine. The money spent (lost) under Pedro is staggering.

kfraser

1.) 20 Apr 2018 20:47:28
Judging by the reaction since the statement his views are not shared by a lot of the suppprt


 

 

13 Apr 2018 14:36:13
Allowing or 'forcing' Wilson and Bates to leave is bad news for the club. Two Scots with the potential to play for their country, get the Rangers story and were coming into their game. I'd rather the two of them in our centre defence, McCrorie of course in the mix, than Alves and Martin. We need to look longer term than stopping Celtic win the league next season. I'm beginning to question Mark Allen. Hamburg are no fools and know they've done a good deal.

kfraser

1.) 13 Apr 2018 15:04:50
sorry k what evidence do you actually have that the club either allowed or forced either player to leave?

there are far too many people believing the utter tosh written in the press and have no idea what agents demands actually are

i personally know an agent who has signed players for both halves of OF and he openly admits he’s out to get as much money for himself and player as he possibly can regardless of form, stability, injuries, long term
career prospects, national team call ups, players well-being. you name it they want 1 thing. money

if their demands are ridiculous and refuse to allow player to sign a new deal how are club forcing or allowing players to move?

they aren’t it’s down to the agents


2.) 13 Apr 2018 18:45:48
Is 7.5k really ridiculous?


3.) 13 Apr 2018 21:20:35
No when Ian black Kyle . Clark. Etc etc were all on that sort of dough.


4.) 13 Apr 2018 21:51:17
Bates was rubbish so was Wilson who cares that they have gone


5.) 13 Apr 2018 22:06:29
Are Hamburg not getting relegated? Or on the verge. If they can pay more fair play all the best. Prefer soutter, mckenna and I'm sure there's many more to Bates. Did like him though.

Ex Liverpool players at the end of their careers or Anfield youth loans are hardly exciting prospects. I just hope all this newspaper talk is nonsense and the rumour and banter here is miles off the mark.

Wallace and Miller? They're both suspended by the club and that means they're not training and it also means they're not match fit. Even if you doubt that obvious point, fact is they're suspended and the club will not play them. It's a good match for Cummings to play in and I'm sure Halliday at left back will play his heart out.

It doesn't mean that at all. The managing director and the board have to back the manager as in doing so they're defending the integrity of the club. As interim manager, Murty calls the shots and not any single player and that's the way all businesses are run.

King could live out the remainder of his life as a very cushy version of it. He doesn't need the stress of getting us back to the top but he chose to. Give him full credit and get off his back.
