Call yourself rangers fans, it’s a joke how many people on here are sayin sack Gerrard and drop Morelos, 1 if we sack Gerrard we’d be back to square 1, he’s a better manager than warbs and Pedro that has been let down time and again by players he inherited, 2 why are people saying drop Morelos, by far our best player and without him in team we are pathetic, wouldn’t see any other fans in the world shouting about dropping their best player, I’m hurting as much as anyone today but as I said before get behind the team and give them a reason to play out of their skin.

what makes you say he is a good manager? he is tactically inept

as for being let down by players he inherited, 8 of last nights starting line up were his signings as were the 3 subs

he is out of his depth and his transfer dealings have been poor.

13 Mar 2019 14:59:14
A true rangers fan will speak out against mediocrity WATFP👍.

13 Mar 2019 15:36:06
we have mediocrity for last many years, . gerrard isn't above criticism, as he says he picks the team, tactics, players. maybe he has to many players to choose from. were all true rangers fans with red white blue running through our veins. love stevie give him time, were doing ok but he isn't above criticism, he has got personal wrong many a time this season. i'm fully behind gerrard.

13 Mar 2019 16:27:43
Gerard is still in his first season as a manager . Not just his first in Scotland; not Just his first in charge of Rangers.
He has high standards, that currently are not being met by all the players, or himself, BUT, he will get there, or he will leave if he cannot. Patience is often hard thing to have in the Glasgow arena; 2 defeats and your bad, 3 and your useless.4? it seems its gtf.
Just keep the faith folks and remember the rubbish we had before he came.
another season and he will be closer; we don't have a fortune to spend, and haven't spent a huge amout in comparison to Celts. We will get there.

13 Mar 2019 17:07:07
Imagine if Man Utd had sacked Fergie after his 1st two poor seasons? Gerrard needs time and he is learning on the job as he goes. Yes he has made some poor decisions, but hopefully he will learn from them.

13 Mar 2019 18:58:50
Totally in the camp of our supporters who are still right behind our manager steven gerrard! I still back him to the hilt and believe he'll get it right and take us to where we all want to be. I totally trust the guy.

13 Mar 2019 19:15:47
You said the same about warbs and pedro and murty👍.

14 Mar 2019 03:29:59
Poor Stevie G. Didn't think he had done that bad for a first time relatively big job. But now he has the supercoop seal of approval. he is doomed😂😂.

14 Mar 2019 05:43:31
Future England Manager. Can we have a poll?

13 Mar 2019 12:38:34
Now I'm not advocating getting rid of SG as I think our team is much improved and I recon we are only a few players away from a really good team, mainly a couple of players that can take the ball in midfield and run at defenders and can get us between 10 and 15 goals per season.

My main issue with SG is his treatment of Katic and McCrorie Middleton all these players where playing really well at certain points in the season and got dropped. What does this say to our youth.
Our young players are getting praise from all areas in the game and us as fans we are being told they are up there with best in not just scotland but the UK. We see hearts hibs aberdeen Motherwell and even the unclean give their youth regular starts.
We have signed Jones and Kamara and are now being linked with hastie all these young players have been given the chance to shine with their clubs. My question is are they any better than what we already have within our own youth and if yes then what message is this sending to our young boys. No pathway to first team. This season I've watch the unclean aberdeen ect playing boys that are under 20 against us and on most occasion these boys have not looked out of place. So if we are being told that we have some of the best young players in the country why are we not giving them a chance.

Agree5 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 14:21:43
Not sure what to make of Jones as he is very inconsistent. Not even sure where we go from here as it looks like another clear out could be on the cards. Tavernier needs sold and Barisic has been dreadful. Pointless keeping Davis and Candeias needs to go.

13 Mar 2019 16:04:44
Spot on Stewartyblue. Middleton was coming on great then gets dropped, Docherty is sent out on loan. I am beginning to think that the powers that be are feart to play the young players. They need to be playing regularly to keep their confidence and hunger to play regularly. ONWARDS AND UPWARDS THE FAMOUS.

13 Mar 2019 12:31:53
Listening to all this on the media, it wouldn’t surprise me if Stevie G resigned.

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 12:14:57
In the main, we are not turning up for the big games in this latter part of the season. In my opinion too many games has nothing to do with it. It's poor personal. We have not had the quality playmaker we so obviously, desperately need since Davis the first time around! I not sure Davis will be it this time around either. Morelos is quality, Defoe is quality, I'm going off script here, but I reckon Candias is a great player for us, as is Kent, but yet we STILL can't finish the big teams off! There will be 6 or seven players off this summer, maybe more, and I would love a chunk of this cash sunk into the purchase or loan of as top a drawer playmaker we can afford. Any opinions who could/ would come?

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 12:52:35
Imo candeias needs replaced. his balls in are terrible, he crosses the ball that often that occasionally one hits his man and we think he's incredible at balls in but in reality he just crosses a lot.

13 Mar 2019 13:54:21
Candieas for all the graft he puts in is awful. End product is so bad. And the defence after all the cash gerrard has spent is jo better than what they have replaced.

13 Mar 2019 15:19:50
Paul86 I would actually say our defence has improved albeit not by much. Last season in the league we conceded the most in the top 7 but also scored the most goals in the league. I hate to say it but when we lost windass we lost the goal scoring ability from midfield.

13 Mar 2019 16:30:26
Kylel1872 defence has improved a lot, last season conceded 50 goals in league, only 21 to date. One three and one two, rest single goals. Remember teams were putting FIiVE in against us.
We need to score more of the chances we create, and conceded even less to win league
We are also on target to score more league goals than last season.
So despite, Coldco view, which I respect there is some progress, we have to put away more teams and not be bullied on the pitch.

13 Mar 2019 17:51:33
Said at the time on here I thought it was a mistake selling the josh windass, the whipping boy from last season and got slaughtered by the usual suspects on here. 20 goals a season gone, more than arfield Kent and candieas combined. Apparently didn't turn up tho 🙈.

13 Mar 2019 18:25:26
Fb people on here pick one or two targets who are actually delivering the goods i. e. Windass as u say.
If we had kept him we would have won more games in my opinion.

14 Mar 2019 00:46:45
Jbhoy, for the 10th time 4 points better off is not progress. We might have conceded less goals but that's because we are getting beat 2-0 instead of 4-0. that's not progress👍.

13 Mar 2019 10:48:01
Sack the manager and start again. Make it even easier for the champs to get 10 🤷🏻‍♂️.

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 10:17:49
Just an opinion. Forget last night as aberdeen should have been buried by half time at Pittodrie Common theme this season and Will need addressing, but my point is our season has been too long for us too soon, we weren't ready for Europe yes we were competitive in most games but we're now paying the price the players look emotionally drained. Forget wholesale changes for next season I personally would like us to sign another CB and a creative player, starting this mass clear out I keep hearing ofis only setting us back further. Just my thoughts. Keep backing the team 🇬🇧.

Agree6 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 10:23:54
An extra 12 games has drained our players, away and don't talk pi$h👍.

13 Mar 2019 10:29:24
Emotionally drained? I don't think so. Lack of leadership on the park and in the dugout. Tav just isn't a Captain and G needs to change that, not Captain material, give armband to McGregor. Don't like to say it but Candy has had his time, that "cross" last night? Not good enough. Nearly every fan can see that Katic should be first on the sheet as well.

Massive learning curve for the gaffer. It's a 4 year project so here's hoping he can see where he's went wrong and crack on next season.

13 Mar 2019 11:07:10
Still gutted can't eat don't want to do anything can't get this felling out my system hail rain or snow a will follow the rangers but player need to understand what it means to be part of the rangers family.

13 Mar 2019 11:12:49
There’s only one player other than the goalkeeper that actually has a voice on the park and he’s the player that gets more stick than anyone.

13 Mar 2019 12:18:54
Smodge81, hopefully you are overweight.

13 Mar 2019 12:39:06
Smodge81. I think a sense of perspective is required in your life. Passionate Gers fan though I am too, it is only a football match at the end of the day. I for one won't be cutting back on my food!

13 Mar 2019 13:07:04
Here bankie, doiger is having a slap up buffet at his you up for it🤔. Set the table for two more doiger😁👍.

13 Mar 2019 13:10:11
Yes coldo the extra 12 games and the fact we had to start our pre season so early has drained our player 👍.

13 Mar 2019 13:34:21
@Jzer, 😂😂😂😂👍.

13 Mar 2019 10:05:29
Is there a chance that fear is letting our side down? The pressure Gerrard may be putting on the players is being highlighted all over the pitch, perhaps he is asking too much of them for the sake of his inability? Just a thought.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 13:07:22
Pressure could be a part of it, a lot of it from the fans too. So many want to sack and rebuild every bad result, get a grip, we are still work in progress. When we are on our game we are awesome, but when we need to change things the bench quality is not always there, for example if Kent is poor, who replaces him? Same for Candy. There will be new faces for next season and we will only become stronger.

13 Mar 2019 08:56:42
A surprisingly poor cross by Candeias in the first half with two players in the middle. Normally he's good at that. Should have been a goal. Also, Jack hitting the post is purely bad luck as the keeper was beaten and in my view, Morelos should have had a penalty, not booked. The defender pulled him back. So sometimes luck plays a part. However, we clearly struggle to win the games against the other top three or four teams. Next two league games will probably be the final nails in the coffin for the season so why not play Halliday, Katic, McCrorie, Defoe and Davis to freshen things up? Give young Middleton another run too. Just airing my thoughts from a frustrated, bemused Bear!

Agree7 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 09:13:22
Candeias is a poor player his crosses either hit the 1st defender or he blasts it over everybody's head. only winger I've never seen taking a man on how many times is he one on one with the last defender and he cuts back. not brave or fit enough to wear the jersey.

13 Mar 2019 09:36:35
Maybe its to big a job for Gerrard .

13 Mar 2019 12:24:58
I can't believe candieas still gets a game. I've said this for the entire season he's a very average player who gets a free ride because he works hard. We must sign better than him for next season.

13 Mar 2019 15:12:56
Didn't see the game last night, but a common theme I have noticed this season with the midfielders is that they very rarely want to shoot from outside the box. Other teams of all qualities in the spl have men who are prepared to have a pop when there's nothing on in front of them, whilst we continually try to 'walk it in' against packed defences. is this fear or instructions, i don't know? but anything can result from a distance shot, deflections, knock downs to our players in the box etc, I just don't think we see enough of it, and to go from 14 goals in 3 games to not being anywhere near the net is disappointing to say the least.

13 Mar 2019 16:18:57
He is piss poor at crossing he just crosses so much that one or two are bound to be on their man.

13 Mar 2019 18:26:48
Doiger sad thing is candelas poor cross was not surprising.

13 Mar 2019 08:26:33
Only gerrard name saving him from the sack. poorer record than pedro and warburton, 3 wins from 14 v killie aberdeen and hibs this season. Bar kent all of his signings have been pretty poor. Goldson had a good start but now looks very poor. Katic stuck on the bench can't get near the side. Will have to be another mass turn around of players in the summer. just cannot see this getting better anytime soon. Barasic grezda goldson worral davis defoe laffrty. Not to mention the dross he inherited tav and candieas.

Agree3 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 08:18:36
Talent = desire, commitment and heart.

When SG rebuilds the team in the summer he needs ensure that his new signings have these attributes in abundance.

We want and need players who will fight for the jersey.

We also NEED a captain!

Agree4 Disagree0

13 Mar 2019 10:15:45
True blue
I think we have a good captain at the club “ Jack “? Maybe few agree but in my humble opinion he has the material to do the job?

13 Mar 2019 10:27:47
Ulsterman - a captain motivates his players, shirricks them when necessary and gets results.

Jack may be 'the captain' at the moment and perhaps the players he has around him are not up to his 'standard' or refuse to listen or he is not communicating.

I do not want a 'Paul McStay' type captain, I want a captain who cajoles, shouts, gets angry and boots arses, and where necessary consoles and puts an arm round the shoulder.

We either have the right 'captain' and the wrong players or.?

13 Mar 2019 11:26:16
True blue
Is there any player in the Scottish league that would meet your expectations? Your desire for a player like you say is of course right, but where would we find him? Have you some one in mind already at the club?
The team is certainly lacking a true leader as you say, but with our finances he will be hard to find.

13 Mar 2019 12:53:56

In my day a team was built by the spine first -

Goalkeeper - centreback / captain - midfielder - striker

T Butcher / R Gough

I presume SG now knows this and also presume that our director of football knows this as well, so I fully expect SG with the full weight of the boardroom to sort this out, this summer.

I do not know who is out there that can become our captain - but he is out there waiting for the call.

Finally, I have mentioned many a time that desire and commitment is as important as skill and it was that desire and commitment that saw us draw with hibs and get beat last night.

The only good thing that will come out of last night and the past week will be the players understanding of what they have not achieved, the hurt they have caused and the desire and commitment they need.
