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 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.

Celtic fans on this page will be quaking in their boots with the news Warburton wants to give new contracts to Hill and Miller. They might be turning 39 and 38 this year but he says they're first on the training pitch and last off and age is no barrier.

I myself don't see these contract extensions as an example of our club's lofty ambitions though and the fact that they're 2 of our best players says more about how poor our squad is than how good they are.

totaly agree kfraser. hill is our best defender but we should be looking for younger better than clint. warbs always said he likes hungry young players, time he got some


2.) 15 Jan 2017 10:17:31
Building for the future by utilising experienced pro's to help the younger players develop.

When the old gits still play as well as Miller and Hill I can't really see how there can be a negative slant.


3.) 15 Jan 2017 10:23:29
first post on slagging off the team, if you don't have anything productive to say why bother, where are the lofty ambitions when we don't have any money to spend and won't have for quite some time, hill and miller are two good professionals who deserve their extra time because we do need them


4.) 15 Jan 2017 11:08:59
Not necessarily, many older players can be the stars in teams even better ones than ours.


5.) 15 Jan 2017 11:12:49
I would think the natural progression for both players is to become part of our coaching staff when they hang up there boots - to be fair to kenny he loves a goal against celtic and hill is an excellent communicator/ organiser of the back line just like sir davie weir he could play until he's 40


6.) 15 Jan 2017 11:22:35
It's quite simple. If they are 2 of the best performers then give them another year. No brained really!


7.) 15 Jan 2017 12:07:31
I must admit I thought Hill was likely past it and a rotten signing.

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Like others I reckon he's our best defender and deserves a new contract.

Saying that I was spot on about Barton and Senderos. Stupid signings.


8.) 15 Jan 2017 12:50:33
Sadly as things stand right now they are, whether we like it or not, two of our best players.

We brought in players to secure us promotion to the Premier League but the majority of these players are simply not good enough to win us the league. Yes we were unlucky with injuries to potential key players and the Barton scenario did not work. (For me this was a similar issue to Ferguson and LeGuen, Barton, like Ferguson was a winner, he clearly did not like the drubbing we got from Celtic. Warburton sided with Halliday and I guess we will never know the full story) .

We have subsequently failed to move up to the next level and we are probably half a team short of being serious challengers for this league.

We can go all the way back to the appointment of McCoist which was in reality a total and utter disaster. We do not have one young player over the age of 16 that was signed during his time in charge. He got rid of youngsters and brought in the biggest bunch of excuses for football players ever signed by Rangers with perhaps, Wallace the only decent quality signing!

Personally I believe that King is all talk and little action. He is well behind the three bears in his investment in the club and I doubt that we will ever see real investment from him and once we are rid of Ashley I suspect that we will see new investors with significantly more ambition and hopefully none of the 'favouritism' in some players that has blighted the club!

In the interim we need to hope that Warburton continues to bring in quality loanees and that McParland proves his worth by bringing in some quality players. Age means nothing, it is quality that matters and that is what we need for next season!


9.) 15 Jan 2017 13:20:31
Ffs. If that's rangers ambitions for next season, then seven will be easy.

I could understand if they were being given extensions as part of their applications for coaching badges, but to promote them as part of the back bone of rangers 2017/ 18 is a great joke.

If you keep this up, miller will be able to use his bus pass to get free travel to matches and training sessions.


10.) 15 Jan 2017 13:45:38
Ibra 35
Totti 39
Klose 37
Pirlo 36
Luca Toni 38
Drogba 37
Di Natale 38

The list goes on. Age has nothing to do with deserving a contract. At this moment in time both the players you have mentioned are playing good football. Hill is arguably our best defender! I think Weir was 38/ 39 with us! They are essential behind the scenes also no doubt.

another year for each for me is not a problem. I hope next year we do move on and they have to play less however.


11.) 15 Jan 2017 13:47:46
Some of the negative comments on this site are so over the top I sometimes wonder if there Rangers fans. Remember where were this time two years ago


12.) 15 Jan 2017 14:32:51
Have just been informed rangers to make three keynote signings.

John greig 74.
Derek parlane 64.
Derek Johnstone 63.

All players who even at their age, would do a better job than the current rangers misfits.

Happy New Year to all out there and to Ed who never seems to take a day off. Tavernier and Forester, the absence of Hodson have all been spoken about these past 12 hours or so and with good reason and I'd add that Garner's injury was an ideal opening for O'Halloran. He's never played against Celtic in a Rangers jersey and the space they allow is what brings out the best in him with his sheer pace. Waghorn offers no pace at all and there's no surprise factor and O'Halloran might just have done to Celtic what he did to us last season in the league cup. Could've, should've, would've I suppose.

{Ed001's Note - a day off? Not sure what that is mate! Happy New Year and all the best for 2017.}

Tossing my penny's worth into the Wilson debate, I rate him as one of 3 players who'd make teams of the past 50 or so years, McKay and Foderingham being the other 2. I agree Hill's shown his ability but then play him alongside Wilson and bench Kiernan and before anyone says yeah but they're both left footed, so what, no one complains when we have 2 right footed centre backs.

kfraser

1.) 26 Dec 2016 09:56:06
kfraser. Can't agree with your opinion I'm afraid. The only current player who'd make it into a best team of the last 50 years would be Kenny Miller imo. Mckay has still to fulfil his potential and I do think Wilson and Mckay have class. Rossiter, Windass and Garner could all go on to be Rangers legends but I'll reserve judgement for now. On a lighter note, Thistlecrack is a fine Scottish-named horse who could win the big race at Kempton Park today. Have a few quid to win!


2.) 26 Dec 2016 11:07:39
I almost read that as Miller being in a best eleven from players over last 50 years. Thought I was drunk, but remembered I don't touch the devil's piss.


3.) 26 Dec 2016 12:20:36
No Cullin72, not in the best 11, just in one of the best batch of players over the last 50 years! I'd have a large one if I were you! Merry Xmas.


4.) 26 Dec 2016 12:24:02
Surely no one is seriously suggesting that any of the current Rangers squad would get in to a best team of the last 50 years.


5.) 26 Dec 2016 12:49:03
Think too much Christmas spirit consumed by some. I believe that Wilson should be the team although cannot say any member of the current squad would be included in the best team of the last 50 years I watched the Inverness game on RTV yesterday and got to say we were fortunate to get 3 points. Agree that Hill is the best CH and natural defender we have, also that he has character and provides leadership. For a CH Wilson has great passing ability and has mastered Beckanbaur style the long defence splitting pass that can change defence into attach in a second. For me the answer is simple and easy that Hill and Wilson should be the central defensive pairing.


 

 

22 Dec 2016 09:30:57
Not that I know anything about Jota, but reports that he can put the ball in the back of the net as an attacking midfielder suits me. I think we look a better team with Hodson as right back and 3 wins in a row with him in that position is no coincidence. Tavernier's awful shooting against Hamilton has probably lost him his place in the team when we have a fit midfield to pick from anyway but a goal scoring midfielder added will be the right move by Warburton.

kfraser

1.) 22 Dec 2016 10:19:39
still like tav a lot and think he can get used to the middle of the park and he can shoot he just hasn't found it this season as yet.


2.) 22 Dec 2016 12:07:23
Honestly think it's inevitable that he will go back in at RB.

Hodson has been great, just have a feeling he might well get punted out the starting line up again for Tavernier.

No way it should ever happen. Think Tavernier is a fantastic player for Rangers but think most are starting to realise he isn't a RB.

Kind of got fooled myself into thinking. He's a right sided player with squad number 2. He must be a RB.


3.) 22 Dec 2016 13:49:07
If hodson is dropped in favour of tavernier then mw has been on the eggnog.


4.) 22 Dec 2016 14:22:14
Nevermind the eggnog, he's been on the bucky if Tav goes back in place of Hodson.


5.) 22 Dec 2016 15:53:48
Where else is Tavernier going to play then?

Didn't play that well in the midfield against Hamilton. Didn't play well against Hearts at the back.

He was one of, if not our best player last season and for a time this season had significantly improved his defensive qualities.

MW wouldn't dare put him in at RB against Celtic. But against other teams in the league apart from Hearts and Aberdeen, it wouldn't surprise me if Tavernier was in at RB.


6.) 22 Dec 2016 16:57:40
Hodson has proved he should be in that position for us and Tav will need to work harder to prove a better choice.


7.) 23 Dec 2016 00:28:32
Thorn 76 You think he'd play Hodson against just the best three teams in the league and Tavernier in the rest? That would do a lot for continuity of selection. Tavernier has no improvement left in him, he was all the player he was ever going to be last season and now should be considered a squad player when everyone is fit. Hodson should now be our right back of choice and Rossiter, Windass or Crooks will replace Tav in midfield.


8.) 23 Dec 2016 11:11:15
I like tav a lot but thinking about it I think he isn't as technically gifted as forrester and i'd maybe play him in at rm instead of tav.

and I think our whole team trying a lot harder in the last few games has made hodson look like the saviour we needed but in reality if tav was back there in those game I don't hink we would hav been any worse off as the whole team lifted in those games, we can't be giving hodson all the credit as its a team performance out there.


9.) 24 Dec 2016 06:56:03
Hudson is a steady type who should play against them as he has done well since coming in. I'm not convinced that Tavernier has what it takes to play right side of midfield but I'd give him a few games to see if he grows into the position a bit like we did with Fernando. He's quick and athletic and we know he can score goals. Would I play him there against them? Yeah why not?


 

 

17 Dec 2016 08:15:09
The front 3 played well and McKay was almost unplayable and against a team putting the boot in knowing they could. The ref gave no protection to our players and questions should be asked. A good team effort but Halliday's mistake was embarrassing and Tavernier's shooting just as bad. It's quite astonishing when you think that Warburton has to do without Crooks, Windass, Rossiter, Kranjcar and Barton in midfield. There's a lot of bad luck in that.

kfraser

1.) 17 Dec 2016 09:59:13
tav has many weekneses, shooting, crossing, defending yes he has scored goals and assisted goals but when it comes to shooting he has a goal ratio of about 1 in 30 shots, don't start me on his crossing or defending. the strange thing is i think there is actualy a player in him somewhere! maybe he needs focus or concentration.

Can't blame O'Halloran one bit. There are a few of the undroppables I'd rather see go Hearts way but they're immune to the effects of dire performances. I agree he hasn't grabbed his place in the team by the scruff of the neck and that's disappointing but he does offer a threat no one else can when he's on his game. It's all about confidence and we saw what happened when Mckay lost his for a while.

A bit of an optimistic post. We're more likely to hear at the end of the winter break that Rossiter is 10 days away from rejoining training.

The blame Kingers usually appear after a poor display as if it was he who had put the ball past the post from a yard out earlier. I think the retail deal was a blow the board didn't anticipate and a lot of calculations had to be redone and the fact that it's a Rangers board and not an unknown quantity who's never set foot in Glasgow, never mind Ibrox, is a fact some fans don't understand the importance of. I agree about focusing on the age of the squad and the need for European football and as much as I rate the heroics of Miller and Hill right now I can't get my head around the news of offering them both a new deal at the ages of 37 and 38. It says a lot about our squad if they're rated 2 of the best we have and it says a lot about our ambitions for next season.

Burt's a good shout for a chance to prove if he's ready to step up but for me the jury's out on Hardie. He's on the bench for Raith and that's not a good sign he'd be good enough for us right now, if at all. Rossiter's a mystery and you're right about if and when and it seems more if than when.

Maybe you should read what I actually wrote before spouting off. I didn't say a best team or best 11 selected from the past 50 years. A bit of imagination required I'm afraid and that may be too hard a task for some. Would the 3 I mentioned make some of the good teams we've had in the past and to that I say yes they would.
