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.

zikos

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.

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.

zikos

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.

A lot of noise on here regarding Morelos and Windass. I personally think that the state of the general playing squad is putting these boys under more pressure.

In years gone by when a young player wasn't performing they would be taken out the first 11, allowed to come on in matches and build there confidence again.

Celtic do it very well atm, when Dembele isn't playing well, they play griffiths or Eduard. Take Dembele out the firing line for a few weeks until he is ready again.

The problem with Rangers the last couple of years is the squad has been so poor that there has been nobody else to bring in when Windass and Morelos have been playing poor.

So rather than replace/ sell the two I think we need to bolster the squad with another 2 strikers to help out, and as I've said before hopefully sadiq can be one of those strikers.

zikos

1.) 15 Jul 2018 20:56:24
The abuse Windass and Morelos get from some sections of the "support" is embarrassing. Some o you boys n lassies need a word with yourselves. I wasn't happy with Morelos attitude a lot of the time last season but he's a young boy with a bright future and works hard. Windass dares have a personality and give back some abuse after taking plenty. There are elements in this support that are embarrassing on basic human level. Especially the ones who offer advice to players who exercise their free right to show their faith, whatever that may be on how not to "endear" themselves with the support. I look forward to the disagrees.


2.) 16 Jul 2018 09:15:35
As most of you know on these pages,
i've constantly said, we should sell josh windass. Having said that, let me make it clear, that i've never booed windass at any rangers game and have never booed any glasgow rangers player, in all my years of watching rangers! I never will boo any rangers player that dons, our famous jersey!
My take on windass is he frustrates the living daylights, out of me.
There's no doubt there's a talented footballer in him, but he only does it in small flashes and can practically hide, for the remainder of the game. We just can't have that at rangers and he splits our support because of his workrate at times and putting the tools away early! He's definitely an enigma to me. Once he does something superb on the park,
he seems to think, Ach that's me done my bit and goes into a shell, for the rest of the game! Our club is hard to play for, no matter how talented you are. I truly believe that windass just can't handle playing, for a club our size and the expectation, that comes with it! He Would probably do superbly, with a smaller club, with much less expectations! He is a talented player though, of that i've no doubt! But i'll always get right behind windass, as long as he's playing in a rangers shirt! I truly want him to succeed here!

Very sensible posts πŸ‘πŸ»


4.) 16 Jul 2018 10:33:20
I don't see how windass fits into gerrards style of play. No point in high pressing if you won't put a foot in, and having been to the bu1ry game and watched the shkupi game i don't think I seen him put a challenge in once. Morelos at least makes sense this way because he puts himself about up top, he just needs confidence and to learn to pass to his team mates instead of shooting at every opportunity he gets


5.) 16 Jul 2018 11:27:31
Thoroughly agree Supcoop Never have never will boo our team or players. Having said that Windass p88888s me off as he just does not seem to try or care, I think we all believe there is a player in there, but while he seems more interested in his hair than grafting for us i'll hope he's sold or bench-warming. Actually as he only seems to play for 20 mins a game perhaps an impact sub would suit him.


6.) 16 Jul 2018 15:29:40
As another poster said earlier. Made the first against shkupi by tracking backa 70 yards n winning the ball back starting move that led to first goal. How did he do that without pressing or putting a foot in? Some of you see what u want to see same ones wanting cummings to sign one of the laziest players I have saw at rangers wasnwasn't xactly the master of hard graft.

Again too light weight tonight for that style of play and too many passengers. Even the goalscorers were poor. Very few pass marks tonight.

The boy Barker is one to keep an eye on though.

zikos

1.) 13 Dec 2017 23:21:01
asked my hibs fan mate if he always plays that well. apparently very hot and cold but was their main threat tonight by a mile


2.) 14 Dec 2017 01:41:34
Boy barker looked a threat!


3.) 14 Dec 2017 08:13:25
I'm told that's Barker's best game - ever. It could take him months to do that again.


4.) 14 Dec 2017 08:50:49
Can't believe some of the posts here, some people are never happy. To go to Easter Road and get a result coming from behind is a fantastic achievement, yeah the performance might not have been there and we rode our luck, but we came away with the points. Remember the manky mob could only manage a draw. There's a lot of talk about us being in a crisis, an embarrassment etc but we are only 5 points behind.


5.) 14 Dec 2017 18:02:16
Struth it's not that I'm not happy about getting the 3 points, however we didn't deserve them. This team of ours can't boss a midfield and retain possession for any length of time and we won't be able to challenge until we can control games for long periods of time. I think this is going to be another wasted year tbh as I can see most of Pedro's signings leave in January.


6.) 14 Dec 2017 18:56:22
In the 9 in a row years Tommy Burns Celtic Never got much because of the goalie's great displays. They had us pegged a few games. So take the deserved and undeserved points, that's what wins cups and leagues. πŸ˜ƒ


 

 

19 Sep 2017 23:10:39
I fear am absolute hiding on Saturday. Our ball retention is absolutely shocking. When we go ahead we should be making the opponent chase the ball for long spells of the game, draw them out and attack the space. Instead we constantly lose possession and defend deeper and deeper until we eventually concede. Initially I thought Dorrans and Jack in the middle would work but IMO they are not able to control games the way they should. Not sure if they are too deep or too far apart but something has to change/ improve quickly!

Forgive me if I'm wrong here, but didn't PC say in an interview how he wanted to follow FC Porto and Benfica in how they handle transfers in that they stipulate that all dealings are to remain confidential until the player has signed and that they walk away if the agents mention anything to the press. Every player we have signed so far and every player we are currently going after the press knew about them weeks and sometimes months ago, what's happened to keeping a lid on things?

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.

I can't understand why people are bitter about a player leaving. We signed him for practically nothing and tried to develop him. We waited until the last minute to offer him a new deal and at the end of the day he exercised his right to see what else was out there and ultimately moved on. He owed us nothing so can't understand the distain.

If our club's hierarchy wanted him to stay they would have offered him a better deal and one earlier than they did.

I hope the lad goes on to have a good career and you never know he might come back a better player.

Would rather him than the rats that's for sure!

Supercooper I generally agree with most of your opinions but you just described MOH. Fast, strong and direct - and he wasn't good enough for Rangers. And yes Campbell is the one. Think he is a great young player, but we need an experienced midfielder that can boss a game which still needs to be addressed imo.

Rfc-chris, I will never understand the fascination that some fans have with how much we can sell players for. We should be trying to assemble the best squad we can afford and only be looking to sell the ones surplus to requirements.

I appreciate that we (like 99.9%) of clubs are a selling club and one day Alfredo will leave but u til then I couldn't care less at how much someone may or may not pay for him. Until he does go all I'm concerned Bout is how well he plays!

Maybe it's just me though?

Think Ejaria has everything required to eventually develop into a top player, just don't see it happening this season. Hope I'm wrong though.

Feel the same about Kent.

Agree orange Tam, I do think it was more candeias' fault for passing to him when he was clearly offside. I did think at the time though that when the goalkeeper list possession that you could see it was going to go to Candeias and atm Morelos should have tried to get back onside but not to worry. Although I think 4-1 would have finished the tie, I now think we will need to score over there as I think they will also score.

Totally agree with boli-poly. Ejaria looks as though he will develop into a top player. Just don't think it will be this season tho. Positionally seems to be out of the mix too often and games can pass him by, which is a concern for a central midfielder. Hopefully he proves me wrong tho.
