With Fredo now out I know he hasn't set the heather on fire but this could be the break Lafferty has been waiting for this is the chance for SG to try and play 2 up front McCoist / Hately style one of them small to get the ball on the deck and the taller target man to deal with balls on the air. but he will have to go out heart and soul and take this chance that's been presented to him but then of course the gaffer has changed the shape of the team before and it hasn't worked so height be reluctant to try it in the cup game in case it doesn't work and we go out the cup.

1.) 09 Feb 2019 11:42:16
When he was with us previously Lafferty would hardly kick a ball until from this point of the season onwards. Let's hope thia continues. With an able deputy keeper ans another class striker i think we will be fine.

2.) 09 Feb 2019 21:11:28
Totally agree to playing 2 up top and would like to see us go 352.Think it would help us create more chances especially now we have Defoe to help Alfredo up top. Would be a bit worried going 442 as it would could leave us a bit light in middle of the park. Saying that apart from Celtic we really should be outplaying every other side in the league with the players we have.

3.) 10 Feb 2019 18:28:52
Lafferty is dead weight an anchor at best I said so before we aquired no change.

4.) 12 Feb 2019 00:08:44
We don't need 3 centre halfs against most teams. It would effectively leave us a man short in the middle or up front. Roughly speaking our attacking formation is 2 1 7, in defence 4 1 4 1. We would also have to drop one of the more skilful players to accommodate an extra CH. Considering breaking diddy teams down is an onerous task the more skilled footballers on the pitch the better.

5.) 12 Feb 2019 10:00:22
Currently we have only 2 centre halfs. Worrall doesn't dir that description.



24 Jan 2019 16:11:00
Watching the game last night I noticed that most of our players didn't seem to look right when running. something to do with the artificial pitch? not saying that's why we got beat. we got beat by the better team for the first 20 minutes. we should have had the game more or less sewn up. I think at one point we'd had about 75% possession we should be able to win on these surfaces after all we have one installed at the training complex.

1.) 24 Jan 2019 16:55:54
most of our players looked like they couldn't play football either. except Kent and tav looked like no desire.

2.) 24 Jan 2019 17:01:14
How come then we beat them 3-1 on that pitch earlier in the season?

3.) 24 Jan 2019 19:43:22
Been watching the highlights of Necaxas matches big Herrera looks like he’s playing well for them he’s obviously a player suited too Mexican football and not Scottish

good luck too the big guy he never once let himself down as a professional unlike Pena.

4.) 24 Jan 2019 21:55:20
They train on astro as well as grass so should be able to play on it.

5.) 24 Jan 2019 22:43:13
Herrera according to Murty trained like a beast. Thougjt maybe SG could have worked with a player with that attitude. Pena just a waster.



09 Jan 2019 18:03:23
Now here's a question; there are rumours that a big offer might be coming in for Tav if he goes, who would we prefer as Captain with Davis being an ex Captain of our club, would we rather have Jack, Davis, Goldson, McGregor or someone else?

1.) 09 Jan 2019 18:33:40
I would have Scott Arfield.

2.) 09 Jan 2019 18:39:50
Davis all day. He’s been there and done it before.

3.) 09 Jan 2019 18:44:25
I would give it to ryan jack i think he has all the attributes to be a cpt and he was also aberdeen cpt for a couple years.

4.) 09 Jan 2019 18:45:10
Davis for me.

5.) 09 Jan 2019 18:54:44
We won't be selling any players unless a offer we can't refuse gets offered. And i really doubt tav wants a move away just now any way. So he will be the captain to lift the trophy at the end of the season!

6.) 09 Jan 2019 19:00:07
Craig bryson being liked in the paper rumour page, mccallister ment to be pulling some strings as he admires him, 5month left in his cotract, could be a pre, on the table.

7.) 09 Jan 2019 19:53:41
you can't have an on loan player as captain no matter his connection with the club.

8.) 09 Jan 2019 22:18:38
He bleeds blue and isn’t shy to read players the riot act!

9.) 10 Jan 2019 00:13:45
Arfield for me.

10.) 10 Jan 2019 00:24:59
Ryan Jack as new Captain or Shagger.

11.) 10 Jan 2019 13:04:30
Ryan Jack for me.



09 Jan 2019 16:36:38
Did we release or sell O'Halleron? Is he still contracted to us? just seen somewhere that he's coming back from Australia but tbh I don't want him coming back to take a wage from us but if he is still technically our player and is coming back then hopefully someone will take him off our hands.

1.) 09 Jan 2019 17:06:44
He’s not coming back we let him go.

2.) 09 Jan 2019 17:15:27
He's not under contract at rangers.

3.) 09 Jan 2019 18:18:49
We freed ohalloran.



15 Dec 2018 23:44:27
Well it looks plain and simple SG can't TRUST the loans he himself brought in Wjaira was too lightweight and actually looked frightened at times Sadiq is also gone but then he was a never was never is and never will be and get rid of coulibaly bring back Docherty and Hardie and Holt at least they will play for their place in the team and the Jersey send Worrall to pasture and bring young Aidan Wilson up into the squad along with Dapo and Dallas into the 1st team picture sell Tav move Falnnagan to his natural position bring Wallace back in to the squad sign Davis and Stuart Dallas and then see what we can do in the summer.

1.) 16 Dec 2018 01:03:08
Ejaria was crap and Sadiq never played but two signings out of 15 that were rotten isn’t a bad return for 5 mill or so we spent. Agree with Docherty but holt isn’t good enough then and he isn’t good enough now. Coulabaly and Kent have been good in my opinion, Warrel had a few decent games.

2.) 16 Dec 2018 09:40:53
You seem to have it all worked out. So we bring up 5 under 20 year olds into a title challenge? No thanks maybe 1 or 2. And as for Flanagan just get rid he's absolutely useless.

3.) 16 Dec 2018 10:08:57
ryan hardie will never be rangers class he’s in the same mould as kane hemmings if he’s at a club where there's no pressure to win every game he’ll get you goals we need a striker who is going to push morelos for a starting spot not squad players and if anyone thinks jason holt will come back and do a job for us they need their heads looked at.

4.) 16 Dec 2018 10:34:59
Aye, let's bring back some Has beens and accelarate some youths that aren't ready yet to push for the league.


The team aren't there yet, but at least now only requires tweaking as opposed to wholesale changes.

It's all about 2 or 3 players a level up this window, same again summer. We all know where we need improving, middle to front.

5.) 16 Dec 2018 11:18:03
Answer me something Mols. Just how are younger players going to make the grade if they aren't given a chance? I'm not suggesting these youngsters are thrown in and played in every game but surely introduce them in the odd game and as subs?

6.) 16 Dec 2018 12:26:32
Doiger, the manager says the boys are not ready. I read on here how we should play guys like Aidan Wilson, the lad struggled to get a game at Forfar.
We need to be patient, although I feel a boy should be on bench today as Morelos suspended.
I'd like guys like Dallas, Kelly and mayo out in loan in January help build them up against men.
Unfortunately some of our players are too wee look at atakyia, Kelly, mebude hopefully they will stretch
Kelly is one of the best footballers I've seen at rangers in twenty years and he can score.

7.) 16 Dec 2018 14:22:04
Don't forget, the loan players all played there part in us going as far as we did in Europe, apart from sadiq. I thank all of them for there time at the club. It has been a great season so far and and without them there would not have been some great nights at ibrox. Now we need a few quality players and we might have a real league challenge.

8.) 16 Dec 2018 14:52:49
If Hardie couldn’t make it through the dross that we’ve had the last few years then he’ll never make it. Holt is too lightweight and doesn’t have the quality we need right now. Docherty would be the only one I would bring back.

9.) 16 Dec 2018 20:55:39
Guys let's get 55 and stop them way there 10 in a row nonsense then bring through the youth as that will give them more time time in and around the 1st team, no1 priority is league title.

10.) 16 Dec 2018 21:35:55
Sadiq was the only flop out of the 15 signings I’d say. Kent has been very good think Coulibaly and worral have been bad at times but good in others wouldn’t say they are terrible at all and even Ejaria had quite a few decent games only really looked poor the last couple months now we know partly why that was. Tbh I think Lafferty has be a lot worse then a few of the loan players who seem to be getting loads of stick.

11.) 16 Dec 2018 21:51:00
when was the last time we actually were comfortable in a game by half time off the top of my head i'd say hearts at home were never in a position in a game to give the youngsters a run out were not the most patient fans in the world.

12.) 16 Dec 2018 23:36:31
Tommyj79000.u sir are as mad as a mad man on national mad man day. what a lot of pants u talk. Do u know anything about football other than on your computer? Have you ever thought about applying for the Rangers job? . I'm right behind you.

13.) 17 Dec 2018 08:04:21
Lol, anyone who suggests wallace can never be taken seriously ever again. guys surely one from the other side with a statement like that. Really is amazing how in depth they know our squad tho.

14.) 17 Dec 2018 09:32:35
DOIGER that’s 5 managers now that hasn’t thought hardie was good enough or ready mate. I’d love to be proved wrong regarding the boy but that says it all as far as I’m concerned. Yeah some of these managers haven’t been the best but they can’t all be wrong. I feel the championship is his level.

15.) 17 Dec 2018 11:03:10
Timmy790000 Our signings have been brilliant just need to add quality little bu little now.

16.) 17 Dec 2018 15:30:50
Some people are just never happy. Why would some untried youth players be anywhere near a squad challenging for the title?

17.) 17 Dec 2018 16:48:47

Recall Docherty from his loan spell is an option but Holt and Hardie are not the answer if we want to progress.
Gradually integrate Dallas, Mebude, and Kelly into the first team squad.
We need to sign an experienced attacking midfielder and striker in the January transfer window.

18.) 17 Dec 2018 17:24:02
Doig, you need to trust the manager and his coaching staff- that's why we employ them.

I like nothing more than seeing a youth player come through, but by all accounts our academy is in good shape- this doesn't happen overnight.

Wonder will the American guy we got in January get a game tonight with both Barasiç and Halliday not available would be good to see what the boys got and why we bought him.

1.) 03 Apr 2019 15:37:24
Wrong position, Flanagan will be left back.

2.) 03 Apr 2019 18:00:18
agree jboy, think it will be flanagan or maybe wallace.

3.) 03 Apr 2019 18:33:40
Queens unfortunately Wallace finished.

4.) 03 Apr 2019 18:41:23
the way they are treating Wallace is a disgrace.

5.) 04 Apr 2019 14:44:03
Isn't that American player a Right Back, if so, get him in and move Tav forward as has been suggested, and, I agree totally with that. I am also in favour of signing Stewart for next season, he would bring more than Candy does, just my opinion.

6.) 04 Apr 2019 17:52:51
my grannys granny would bring more than candias does.

7.) 05 Apr 2019 00:41:36
Jboy, no reason why Wallace finished. IMO he's captain in wings. Never shamed club on/ off park and his heart blue.



27 Mar 2019 12:56:01
I think before we go spending anymore money Gerrard look again at the players we currently have on the books as if I'm totally honest I think the loans we've had this season like Sadiq, Coulibaly, Worral, Kent their places could have easily been filled by the likes of Lafferty, Hardie, Docherty, Middleton, Dallas, Rudden and then we got Davis, Defoe and Kamara in January we've got Jones lined up for next season and hopefully we'll have the like of Murphy and Dorrans mabey even roaster back fit and raring to go another couple of shrewed proper signing in the summer we could mount a proper challenge for the title.



06 Dec 2018 15:36:01
How would we feel if we went for Louis Moult in January on a permanent deal as he's proved he can score regularly in the Spfl or do people think he not good enough quality wise that we're looking for?

1.) 07 Dec 2018 08:39:16
quite simply not good enough.



10 Nov 2018 16:11:35
Think it's time to try something new in defence if that's big McCauley fit why now try him and Katic give Goldson a rest and tav needs dropped he skips about that pitch like a big fairy at times doing nothing I'd even think about getting Wallace back in at left back.



27 Sep 2018 21:42:55
What about playing Dorrans or Validation up top? Both can score?

{Ed033's Note - Validation needs to be validated first. :)

1.) 27 Sep 2018 22:54:51
That's one predictive text mess up right there!
I'm guessing you mean Middleton? Can't see Gerrard starting the young man as our main striker in a cup semi.

2.) 28 Sep 2018 11:58:52
Gers should start grezda up front in semi final his pace would frighten any defense.

3.) 28 Sep 2018 22:33:17
Lol apologies yep it was a predictive text mistake but it was supposed to say Halliday.

Milne's of Rose street mate I watched the the old firm games there in mid march in both 2017 and 18 as I happened to be in Edinburgh with the missus on our anniversary trip. You'll definitely get it on in there you just have to watch though in 2017 I went online searching which bar I could watch the game in that would be filled with mostly people supporting rangers and trapised across Edinburgh waited outside the pub from 11.30 until 12 when it opened only to find it had recently been bought over an was no longer a sports bar and they had got rid of all the TV's so had to hurriedly find another bar before kickoff and that's when I came across Milne's there might be both set of supporters in there as I don't thinks it's one or the other but I have been lucky enough that on both occasions there seemed to be mostly teddy bears in.

Why would we not be keen? He's a good player and after all he's still a Kilmarnock player did you expect him to ease off and not try his best against us just because he's signed a pre contract well let me say if he hadn't tried against us then I wouldn't have been keen on him coming because that would have shown him up as an unprofessional waster who I for one wouldn't want near our club would we really want someone who would just down tools?

at the end of the day we as fans love our club but Kilmarnock still pay his wages for the time being but it will be interesting next season as we'll be overloaded with wingers in the shape of Candeias, Murphy, Middleton, Jones and Kent if we can sort a loan extension out with Liverpool it'll be interesting to see who plays most next season.

Ps. SG really needs to concentrate on the Defence and a goal scorer in the summer window as there'll be no excuse if we don't win the title next season.

Apparently NF can only take Worral back early with our approval and it would also cost them a fee to take him back early as he has played the required number of games this Mandy explains why Gerrard stuck with him but in any case if he did go back it would allow Katiç to get a foothold back in the first 11 but in saying that I would still like to get Jake Cooper but looks like his value is rising above our budget unfortunately.

Hope it's permanent the guy tried but he was just useless not suited to Scottish football.
