Very sore one today, but for individual mistakes we would have taken at least a draw from the match. Celtics second goal was a disgrace, you should never be beaten by a long hopeful punt up the park and what Goss was doing for their third was unbelievable.

He just let Edouard walk into the penalty area an have a free shot at goal. And Windass once again showed that he is far too often a passenger when we need him most. When you compare their middle 3 and ours it really is a no contest at the moment. I know a lot of fans are wanting us to sign Goss permanently but would he get in the Celtic team? I don't think so therefore we should be looking for better.

Murty should have changed it a bit sooner for sure.

Positives to be taken are we certainly are. Lot closer. Celtic can no longer just turn up and roll is over. And for me the biggest positive was the performance of docherty, I thought he was immense. If we could add a bit of muscle in beside him next season we will be in good shape.

Zikos, one of your final comments (Celtic can no longer just turn up and roll is over) seems to be at odds with what say before it and what actually happened.

2.) 12 Mar 2018 13:23:52
Zikos, we have better in Dorrans, Jack and McCrorie plus Rossiter, but sadly they are all injured!

3.) 12 Mar 2018 21:48:01
Styab - I just think that we could have got something out of the game if it hadn't been for a couple of (crucial) mistakes. I think we are a lot closer to them now and they can no longer just turn up and win, they actually have to put a shift in and like yesterday ride their luck.

Saying that - for us to be better than them we need to improve the midfield three. that's where I think the game (and most gasmes) was won/ lost.

Doherty was class, Goss just didn't perform and Windass was a passenger. I know he has scored a lot of goals lately but still don't think he is a number 10.

4.) 14 Mar 2018 12:02:17
Zikos one poor performance from Goss doesn't suddenly make him a bad player, also it looked like Murty asked him to sit back for more cover and that's not his strengths he is far better off as holding midfielder who likes to get forward.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but didn't Cummings only play well in the championship, I can't remember him doing anything in the SPL. And so I don't get all the hype for what's essentially a really good championship player. If we get him on loan, then fine, but I wouldn't take a risk on him if we had to buy him as he has never performed at this level.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 22:43:45
Would b great signing hope we get him.

2.) 08 Jan 2018 07:25:19
Zikos, Cummings was only 18 when His got relegated and only broke into their team in the playoffs, where he scored their two goals against Hamilton.

3.) 08 Jan 2018 10:02:37
I'm not a fan of Cummings tbh. He comes across as a wee bed, much like Griffiths and would not want him near us. Anyway he hasn't kicked a ball down south. Also stories of late night drinking etc apparently. I think you guys are right when you say he stood out in the championship and not in the top flight. I think everybody remembers him lifting his game against us and assumed that was his normal form, which clearly is not the case. I'd leave well alone.

4.) 08 Jan 2018 11:52:08
If Cummings was half as good for us as Griffiths has been for them, it's a yes from me.

5.) 08 Jan 2018 14:43:45
I'm pretty sure Cummings only came into the Hibs team in the second half of the season where they were relegated, and even at that the majority of his appearances were from the bench. He was sold in the summer after the were promoted so he hasn't really had time to prove his ability in the SPL, however he hasn't exactly been lighting up the Championship down south. I reckon he would work well with Morelos up front for us but my preference would be to give MOH a shot through the middle with Morelos.

From what I've seen the last few games I think the preferred midfielder should be McRorrie, Jack and Davis. I think Davis and Arfield are quite similar but Davis is more composed and better on the ball.

I don't think dropping McRorrie and playing Jack in the deeper role has worked and therefore I would like to see Arfield in direct competition with Davis and possibly Candeias for a starting place.


1.) 29 Jan 2019 00:14:50
Arfield was colossus against the manks . no one could have played better are you forgetting that.

2.) 29 Jan 2019 00:16:58
zikos, a fit Davis is a far superior player to Arfield and you just can't drop Candeias, on of our top performers. The team against Livy was our best team barring Goldson, until Davis is fit enough to replace Arfield.

3.) 29 Jan 2019 06:43:40
Away u Arfield is a must to start younger fresher hungrier unless Davis proves otherwise its Arfield all the way.

4.) 29 Jan 2019 07:50:59
For me it’s Ryan Jack whobis mist under threat from Davis, however if he keeps up his good form then Davis will have to wait. Good to have players chomping at the bit to come in in all positions though!

5.) 29 Jan 2019 11:36:20
Davis is better on the ball than Arfield, but Arfield is far better at pressing the ball and getting in peoples faces. It’s a hard one but a good headache to have.

6.) 29 Jan 2019 13:12:17
Ryan jack has been superb. Not sure what games some people are watching.

7.) 29 Jan 2019 15:41:39
The thing nowadays you can't just have your best 11 players. It is the squad that counts and who plays and in which formation depends on the opposition. Candeias and Kent were very good against Livingston. I think Davis and Defoe will have to prove fitness before starting games, but don't forget injuries and suspensions will happen again before the end of the season so strength in depth is important. Is the game against the Blue Brazil on TV tomorrow night?

8.) 29 Jan 2019 15:44:47
Listen we need the squad, Morelos two league bookings away from three game ban
Also Arfield and mccrorie close to bans re totting up.

9.) 29 Jan 2019 18:08:35
Molsgoals I take your point about the mhank game - he was outstanding, as was the entire team. And siding with some of the replies maybe it will be horses for courses, Where when we need a high press, high tempo game it will be Arfield. And when we need a bit of guile and creativity it will be Davis.

It is a good headache to have.

One thing I must say though is how happy I am with the way McRorrie has been playing. If anyone reads my posts I have said for a long time that the boy has the ability to be a top player, but I thought he lacked heart.

Far too many games last season I saw him going missing in games, from a position on the pitch where it is difficult to hide. I genuinely didn't think he would make it at Ibrox for that reason, but I'm glad he is proving me wrong!



28 Jan 2019 07:08:22
If we are to sell Tav we should use the money and make Kent's move permanent. The kid is only going to get better and for me he is one of the first name on the team sheet.

We will obviously have to sign a quality RB as Tav is very creative and we will miss his attacking support.


1.) 28 Jan 2019 08:41:41
We could survive without Tavernier but I don’t know how we would replace Morelos. I definitely think he will go in the summer. Watching the 2 games on Wednesday and yesterday I just don’t know we’re defoe fits in other than a sub.

2.) 28 Jan 2019 09:29:50
Stevie g. just come out and said it’s all paper talk no contact from Southampton about tav so rather believe him than daily rag.

3.) 28 Jan 2019 11:46:07
I understand the value of a player is what another club is willing to pay, but would anyone on this site be happy if Rangers paid £8 mill for Tav? Only my view, but he’s never an £8mill player, hope all this talk is true and he goes for that, what a good bit of business that would be. Would the bread man get a bonus for bringing him to Rangers 😝 😂 😆.

4.) 28 Jan 2019 13:30:41

This is only EPL valuation and their wads of cash. Maybe to them he's worth 8m but up here he's a 2m player. At mo he's playing brilliant but not long ago everyone on here had him down as a downright plodder. I say take the cash for Tav and Fredo which seems almost done deal anyway. Allow SG to buy quality striker and someone who can create. I don't agree with many SD fans that creative as his forte. We do need another creative No. 10.Lets wait and see.



24 Dec 2018 11:26:02
Loads of people suggesting we go two up top. Personally I would play Lafferty on the left and then choose between Grezda and Candeias on the right. It would mean we would have an aerial threat coming in at the back post when crossing from the right. I think Lafferty played a similar roles for Hearts and always seemed to find the net against them.


1.) 24 Dec 2018 13:45:57
Simple tactic, zikos, that worked well for Prso, Hateley etc.

2.) 24 Dec 2018 14:21:04
too many high balls going in in the first half yesterday that wee just didn't have any height in box for lafferty would at least offer you a target coming in from width.

3.) 24 Dec 2018 14:26:54
Its a good idea although for a big guy Lafferty does not pose.

4.) 24 Dec 2018 14:29:01
For a big guy Lafferty doesn't possess the Ariel ability of peso or Harley but could cause problems nevertheless.

5.) 24 Dec 2018 17:18:15
How many goals have we scored from crosses and corners this season. From the amount that that we do I can only really remember a handful. We need to mix up the corners a bit instead of firing it in all the time.

6.) 24 Dec 2018 19:01:27
Lafferty and middleton changed the game yesterday, would have lost that game without them.



25 Sep 2018 13:40:29
Anyone know where I would be able to watch the game tomorrow in Barcelona?


1.) 25 Sep 2018 16:50:59
hi zikos i'm not sure of any rangers bar but there are a few scottish bars around the place.

2.) 25 Sep 2018 17:50:09
Barcelona is a cold place for Rangers fans. In more than a dozen visits I've never found anything closely resembling a Rangers pub. However, some sports bars might show it if you ask.

3.) 25 Sep 2018 20:32:31
It was very cold on 1972.

4.) 25 Sep 2018 20:39:32
Flaherty's at the bottom of la Ramblas behind burger king, has 3 different rooms, you might get it on the backroom.

5.) 25 Sep 2018 23:15:47
I was there, Bankie, and it certainly was a cold place for us even in our famous victory. Attacked by police, not just inside the ground but in the city centre too, where many bars refused to serve supporters. We were staying in Lloret de Mar so we didn't hang about for long. Since then, business, pleasure and Rangers have taken me back there at least a dozen times and I've yet to find any bar that is in any way 'Rangers minded' but plenty of the other kind.

6.) 25 Sep 2018 23:24:17
Thanks gents, I didn't think I would find a Rangers bar but there always seems to be a Scottish bar so will hopefully find something. I'm not far from la ramblas so will checkout. the backrooms as dodgy as it sounds. Thanks again.

Really hope the rumours about young Docherty going out on loan are true.

I think he really needs to be playing 1st team football to help his development and think his game time will be limited this year.

Also though, I hope we loan him to another SPFL club so that we can use the same tactic as Celtic have been using for years now.

Loan out their players to other SPFL clubs to strengthen them against each other (and us) and obviously prevent them playing against them which then weakens them and makes it easier for Celtic.


1.) 20 Jul 2018 04:56:49
Really hope it isn’t true. Why loan out a good prospect to play for a lower standard of manager, lower standard of player and lower standard of expectation? Makes no sense to me, the boy would benefit more being in and around this team and using the facilities and getting to know the coaching team etc.

2.) 20 Jul 2018 07:35:35
I agree with you poseidon. I'm a big fan of young greg docherty! For the record zikos, looks very much like greg docherty is signing for sunderland, on a season long loan deal! Any other team in england except them, as my favourite english team is newcastle utd!

3.) 20 Jul 2018 15:03:43
I agree that Docherty is a great prospect but I think players of that age benefit more from playing than sitting on the bench. In terms of lower standard of clubs, I think if he were to go to Kilmarnock he would be working under the best manager in the country atm and would come back a better player.

Brilliant idea Glasgow rangers! Celtic. Did this s few years ago to great effect with Allan, Christie and Mackay Steven. We should try the same.

I must be a knuckle dragger then! I Personally wouldn't take the "traitor" back - as you call him Theswagman.

I think its great that you can forgive and forget the way in which he left our club - I can't. It maybe my shortcoming, but I'm happy to live with that.

More so than I would be happy to see him ever profit from our football club ever again!

He could have transferred over like Steven Davis, or he could have left with some dignity (like a lot of the others), saying "Rangers have offered to transfer my contract to new co - but I have decided not to accept it and want to try my luck elsewhere", fine.

But he chose an entirely different route! and I simply can't forget.

Great post ibroxj, for me last season was we didn't have My depth to the squad. When players like Morelos and Windass were off form they were still played which, they performed poorly and then that knocked their confidence and we got into a viscous cycle. I believe this won't be the case this year. When players are off form they won't be playing. Which although is good for the club is also good for the players in the long run.

Brilliant point seeker, but doubt the Rep Ireland player will be as fired up against Celtic!

I think we equally miss Kent when he doesn't play. We really need to sign this boy before we can't afford him.

I really don't know what to expect from Jordan Jones. Every time I have seen him play I have been pretty impressed, yet most on here say he isn't good enough?
