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.

How long is the delusion of a 433 or 442 or a 4141 going to persist for? The quality of players we have are simply not good enough to meet our expectations of a Rangers team we grew up supporting.

We're a St Johnstone with a big fan base and that's the reality we have to face.

I see what you are saying and the performances tend to agree with it unfortunately!

We're not that good

Am not saying the system is going to make them world beaters but simple stuff for simple minds cannot be any worse than what we're witnessing surely.

I grudgingly accept that we're 2nd best to Celtic by a fair way and the point gap tells the story but to say we can't compete and lay the blame on King is wrong. We have a far superior budget to the teams lower in the league and but for a 3 nil win over Kilmarnock haven't put any team to the sword.

Most wins are by one goal and we battle to score 2. I'd accept the 6 points behind Celtic losing home away but not the 22 it'll be tonight. Don't blame King for not beating Ross County and St Johnstone.

kfraser, the only way we were ever going to be within 6 points of Celtic was if they'd kept Ronnie in charge!

Celtic moved the goal posts by bringing in Brenda and a couple of key players. most of our guys are top end championship level (albeit overpaid) and many of them were always going to struggle in the PL.

It's a transition season for us. I'm sure that come the summer there will be a decent budget to bring another one or two in.


2.) 25 Jan 2017 16:24:06
Celtic payed £3.5m for Scott Sinclair and pay him £35,000 a week. Also brought Moussa Dembele in and pay him a king's ransome every week. They have funds to go out and spend £3m in this window on Eboue to tighten their back line. There is no goalpost moving involved. Just money available to their manager to lift the standard of football the team play above the current level of the rest domestically. Why you think he demanded a high level of funding when he took the job? He wouldn't be sitting as pretty in the league and his team wouldn't even have got the point they managed in the CL.


3.) 25 Jan 2017 16:56:34
Keepbelieving, no-one is disputing your thoughts but the fact is that Celtic were not forced into liquidation by shysters who had nothing to offer the club.

I think were doing ok considering where we were only 2 or 3 years ago.

If we are not within 6 points of Celtic this time next season, I'd be worried that we were not achieving the way we should.

Even next season, I'd be surprised if we were serious challengers although Brenda will be offski and will be tough to replace.


4.) 25 Jan 2017 18:42:27
Good grief we are second in the top flight! How in hell can anybody say our players are top end championship class?


5.) 25 Jan 2017 19:02:44
I am very happy with the way Mark Warburton is transforming the club from the first team down to youth level. I am very content with the progress made domestically moving from being nearly men in the Championship to sitting 2nd in the Premiership. I also admire his ability to build a team using low budget buys, free transfers, pre contracts and basically every loophole he can find to improve the team. As he said he will always look to add value to the team and has done that with recent loans like Toral and Hyndman. But people suggesting that Rangers are behind this season due to Celtic moving the goalposts by appointing Rodgers is ludicrous. They simply have a bigger budget.


6.) 25 Jan 2017 19:40:47
keepbelieving, Celtic had a bigger budget last season under Ronnie but teetered on the brink until the end of the season.

Had Ronnie been in place this season I'm certain that we would have been close but he isn't. That's why Ian say they moved the goal posts. budget is great but it isn't everything. Man City is the perfect example over the last 5 years of up and down performances whilst outspending virtually everyone in Europe.

Seeker, last season our players were head and shoulders above the rest but they are not up to to PL quality (with a few exceptions) . If they were, we would not have struggled so much against the teams at in the bottom half of the table.

MW's tactics are a bit one dimensional but he is working to a longer term plan. He is asking the players to play in his ssystem even though they may not be the best fit because that is the way he wants the club to perform for years to come.

Over time, it will gel


7.) 25 Jan 2017 21:32:56
How do toral and hyndman add value to our team? Think they will be good signings but they don't add value since they ain't our players. P. s BR65 why didn't he just sign players to fit his one dimensional system? Rather than keep signing midfielders when we need 2 defenders a striker and a winger?


8.) 25 Jan 2017 21:15:57
if Ronny was still in charge they wouldn't be that far ahead and he had a massive budget, so it is down to a change of manager that they're better than us. its down to management skills that guys like broon, armstrong, forrest etc look totally different players. its called good man management.


9.) 25 Jan 2017 21:50:24
BR65
If the players weren't PL standard we would be bottom of the league, wouldn't we?


10.) 26 Jan 2017 09:15:56
Keep believing

You are serious delusional if you think under Warburton we are ever going to challenge Celtic. We have a far bigger budget than Aberdeen yet we aren't any better than they are.


11.) 26 Jan 2017 15:45:33
difference is we have changed our team recently and they aren't clicking the right way but I don't think that's down to man management as all of Celtic's players are worth more than all of ours and have better experience at the top level

also warbs has helped wee McKay into who he is and I think to compare us to Aberdeen who have had the same team and been in the top flight the whole time we where coming back is wrong we will finish ahead of the sheep that much I do believe.

some people on here where singing warburtons praises and singing the magic hat some after he got us to pley great football last season and now because we don't have the funds to compete its the managers fault?!
naw I will keep believing and trusting in warbs and hopefully he gets money to show he does know the market better than people think.
you lot think it should have happened by now but can't see he is operating a team with both hands tied behind his back and are quick to criticize but slow to give credit for building a team that got promoted and is now sitting second in the PL.

you lot who are shouting that sort of stuff should be ashamed of your behaviour

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.

kfraser

1.) 15 Jan 2017 10:09:22
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.}


 

 

26 Dec 2016 09:45:43
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.

There was a lot of press speculation that Warburton and Weir were under pressure and I can understand that considering other options of employment isn't any crime under the circumstances but Warburton always said he had a first class relationship and lines of communication with the MD Stewart Robertson and wonder why the need to involve an agent. At that level you pick up a phone, knock on the door, have a face to face conversation. Happens every day in every other line of business.

Those 3 targets won't be achieved. Warburton can spin a good story alongside the best of them but the fans don't buy it. Will he drop Tavernier, Kiernan and Halliday tomorrow and will he recognise that Waghorn is totally ineffective playing wide right? Doubt it. He's determined to prove that he's right and 99% of the supporters wrong.

I'd like to see Cummings at Rangers. Elsewhere Nicholson and Soutar from Hearts would be great signings and straight into the starting 11. All have the potential to play for Scotland. I mean a strong Scotland team of the future.

It would be a massive blow to lose McKay. If we do we should move for Sam Nicholson. 22 today and recovering from a knee injury would be right up our street with our record of signing injured players. He's a great prospect and could soften the blow a bit.
