most of the loanees have lost their way, and one or two permanent signings too. Not offering this as an excuse, but most of these lads stared well and fell away over their time here, is there a connection with homesickness caused by unstable home life through living out of suitcases in digs or hotels, whereas permanent players bring their families to new homes and have proper home lives? No doubt posters will hammer me on this, but in my career i frequently had to go away for long periods and after a while it got me down, and I had to change jobs. Any thoughts on this?

Ritchie you may have a point but these are not acceptable reasons for our club. Playing under pressure is a massive part of being a Rangers player and what might be acceptable at smaller clubs is not at Ibrox. The performances in the last two games are unacceptable and Gerrard knows this.

Most of the players do not have the character to play for Rangers. Players who have the ability and character to win consistently as is required unfortunately cost a lot of money. Think of all the loan players we have had over the last 3 or 4 years and very few are good enough.

Having said this we are generally improving every year but not quick enough.

i would expect that loan players are put up in decent rented accomodation mate. They will be living in pretty nice surroundings, won't be stuck in a holiday inn.

09 Dec 2018 20:27:55
There living the dream, millionaire contracts, no money worries, idolised, i could cope easily being in a different country. its not mars we live in. we have a huge squad of players how many midfielders do we have, its ridiculous. the loaness except kent, not good enough. it will be another cull of players leaving again. on positive note,2 points behind, a win on thursday would change things.

10 Dec 2018 08:41:08

Some of the loanees just aren’t good enough.

10 Dec 2018 10:22:19
Gerrard needs to stop making daft needless changes, we have never had a settled team never mind a settled back four👍. Gerrard must shoulder a big part of the blame👍.

10 Dec 2018 10:24:09
It's all about money for 90% of players.

10 Dec 2018 10:40:39
I agree with Arthur. There seems to be an assumption that a kid from Liverpool must be better than a player at Dundee or Motherwell. it's not always the case, and the players at clubs up here are fighting for their livelihood while the kids from big clubs assume they are set for life and maybe don't have the same hunger. We shouldn't be a club that takes a lot of loanees in. But we are where we are. We needed numbers in the summer. Next summer we need quality over quantity, and hopefully the loans will be a thing of the past.

09 Dec 2018 18:10:27
Every week we see the centre backs changing but never Connor Goldson anybody else agree maybe it's time he was dropped?

Agree9 Disagree5

09 Dec 2018 18:26:46
i said it mths ago, people on here compared him to rio ferdinand. because he cost 3 million shouldn't guarantee you starting position. if it wasnt for mcgregor we would be in dire straights in europe and league.

09 Dec 2018 18:33:36
He needs a settled partner-must be a nightmare playing with a different partner each week, especially Wirral!

09 Dec 2018 18:43:19
Sorry Worrall.

09 Dec 2018 18:44:13
Yeah Worrall is awful.

09 Dec 2018 18:45:00
Goldson and katic should be our pairing . Barisic at left Flanagan at right. Tav pushed up a bit but needs to really work on his crossing. Middle of the park have jack and coulibally in front of the back four . Kent behind the strikers and play morelos with lafferty . Could play arfield in the middle I suppose. He can tackle and pass lol.

09 Dec 2018 18:54:51
Glad I'm not the only one who things this. Ever since he had a shocker v motherwell in the 3-3 game he hasn't been the same. Katic has to go back in alongside McAuley. Worrall is this seasons Russell Martin and can disappear back to Forrest.

09 Dec 2018 19:30:58
SG has to settle on his best 11 and stick with it. A good team is built on a steady centre half pairing and goalkeeper. Middle of the park if he continues with 3 has to be Jack, Kent and Arfield. The rest is up for debate.

09 Dec 2018 19:41:20
Thot rossiter looked promising. font kn why he got taken off. was always looking to go forward whereas most ifvthe others apart from Middleton tend to go back and sideways . no at them penetration. definitely a dip tho but would be just the thing to win on thurs . wouldn’t surprise me .

09 Dec 2018 19:50:14
"people" didn't compare him to Rio Ferdinand. A certain poster did. name rhymes a bit like pooperscoopereleven.

09 Dec 2018 19:56:14
Goldson and katic were terrific together at the beginning. I'd get them back together again and see how it goes. Still without a doubt IMO, goldson is the best centre half, at rangers.

09 Dec 2018 20:03:10
Think Goldson is a good CB just not the Butcher/ Gough standard some on here claimed a few months back. Certainly he was responsible for goal today seemingly attempting to usher the ball back to McG as Miller put him under pressure. Poor shout from an experienced player.

I’m all for rotation if any player requires additional recovery time or there is dip in form. Not sure that SG is getting CB rotation correct. More worrying that there appears to be lack of cohesion and communication in the centre of defence. Much work to be done on the training field this week.

10 Dec 2018 07:12:25
Christmas wish list time. I would like a solid right back. I would like Tav pushed into right midfield. I would like an attacking midfielder and a strong centre forward similar to Hately and Prso. Last two games have showed the rest of the SPL that we are seriously lacking attack minded players. I believe in SG going forward there is no doubting his passion for this club, but with a transfer window on the horizon I think he needs support from the board to make the required changes. c'mon the Rangers 🇬🇧🇬🇧.

10 Dec 2018 10:12:35
I thought big rio had a nightmare👍😳😂.

09 Dec 2018 17:52:28
Please, please, don't anyone try and stick up for this team again, how much does it take, brutal doesn't come close, sorry our best ever keeper.

Agree5 Disagree4

09 Dec 2018 17:51:01
Gutted at the game today, a lack of spark in the team. What worries me most is the drop in form of many players, Middleton started the season so strong, but now can't go passed players. Worral was looking solid but now making lotta mistakes. Tav has been a weapon but looked poor today. Candyman never got going. Morelos indiscipline fails to improve. Goldson looked the real deal, but is dodgy at times now. I'm sure SG will be on this and we are still second even with these poor displays so hope should not be lost.

Agree1 Disagree4

09 Dec 2018 19:43:06
There will be ups and downs in a normal season . this is our down. it’s a long road ahead.

09 Dec 2018 17:41:38
Personally never want to see Ejaria in a Rangers shirt again.

Agree10 Disagree7

09 Dec 2018 18:12:35
Agree there. He has been mince for a long time now. We have a good team but it needs strengthening.

09 Dec 2018 23:56:55
Other than his goal against Ufa he’s done nothing for the team than lose possession and not give a rubbish. Would much rather a youth player was given a chance ahead of him because they’ll actually fight for it.

10 Dec 2018 10:15:03
I said last week that we need new midfielders👍.

09 Dec 2018 17:29:48
What a fickle lot many posters on this forum are it seems. Yes, poor in last two games and only 1 point out of 6 but we are still 2nd in the league, 2 points behind the unwashed albeit played a game more but things can turn round. We can't be that bad if we are 2nd and still in Europe. A settled back four is a must, i. e. what was wrong with the Goldson/ Katic partnership and Barisic is now back fit. Get Halliday in the midfield with Arfield and Jack but we do need that creative spark. Also, why does SG only play with one striker? Surely a partner for Morelos (not Lafferty though his goal today was perfectly alright) . Let's stick with our boys. celtic will drop more points in the league too. Keep postive.

Agree7 Disagree9

09 Dec 2018 19:45:05
Yea no one said that about Ejaria when he scored away in Europe. a peach of a goal.

09 Dec 2018 19:49:05
They will drop points yes, but unfortunately we'll drop far more.

09 Dec 2018 17:26:52
Hi boys, was wondering if someone could please tell me what that lanky streak upfront brings to the team? To me he's a signing just to please the knuckle draggers. Was woeful the first time around. Thanks guys.

Agree7 Disagree5

09 Dec 2018 17:51:45
Agree headless chicken running about park comes to mind.

09 Dec 2018 18:54:22
He scored 18 goals for a poor hearts team and scored some big goals against Celtic. that's why he was signed. Nothing to do with knuckle draggers.

09 Dec 2018 20:15:59
Scored a good goal today to be fair.

10 Dec 2018 10:16:15
If lafferty's goal had stood, which it should have, you would not be on here slating him👍. The guy needs the service, every cross was aimless and the midfield couldn't split hairs never mind a defence with a pass👍.

09 Dec 2018 17:00:41
We definitely need creative attacking midfielder in Jan as we run out of ideas and are to predictable, who would you like to see us go for.

Agree2 Disagree4

09 Dec 2018 17:16:51
I don't care if he's 33 or 93, IMO we need to bring back the experienced steven davis, to this club! He would add that bit of class!

09 Dec 2018 17:37:44
Totally agree Steve Davis for 2 seasons would improve our midfield/ Team and he, s definitely what we need. Eraja couldn, t lace his boots and Steve G needs to get rid of him and Rossiter cause they are both imposters and will never be 1st Rangers players!

09 Dec 2018 17:38:04

We need more than just Davis.

09 Dec 2018 18:34:24
People need a serious head wobble if they think Steven Davis is the answer to our problems!

09 Dec 2018 20:00:58
I agree Arthur D, we do need more than stevie davis, but start with bringing his class in midfield, into our team!

09 Dec 2018 20:03:10
He'll certainly be a massive help to our midfield problems,87shenderson!
Davis is a winner and knows what it takes to wear the rangers jersey and not wilt with the pressure that comes with it!

09 Dec 2018 21:21:25

Davis time has been and gone! He was a fantastic servant for our club but now he’s a 34 year midfielder who hasn’t kicked a ball all season.
Let’s enjoy the memories we have of Davis, I’m afraid he is past it.

09 Dec 2018 22:00:08
we are top heavy with midfielders, most of them offer nothing to team, get rid, we don't have time to mess about, so yes if it means steve davis get him, if it means rossiter, pena, ejaria, coulibally, go back to free up wages, get rid.

10 Dec 2018 10:17:11
We need at least two new creative mids. Our midfield is so bad👍. Anyway what excuse you using to explain today then coop? 😂👍.

09 Dec 2018 16:59:58
Thank you Morales, you let your team mates and manager down today big time today.

Agree7 Disagree4

09 Dec 2018 17:06:40
Bankie, I don’t even think you could blame the buffalo for that! Back to the Pedro days😭🇬🇧.

09 Dec 2018 17:15:31
Is it morelos problem that no one else can step up in his absence and score a goal team is in a sorry state if no one else can score goals.

09 Dec 2018 17:20:30
Bankie, of course we need morelos to get his discipline sorted out, without taking the edge away, from his game! Having said that gerrard should be able to trust lafferty against the sort of opposition, we were up against today! Would never have brought lafferty back in the first place! Although not alone today, lafferty was woeful again today! Never in morelos's league.

09 Dec 2018 17:21:44
Bankie I agree Morales let himself and team down but he can't take blame for that today. Lafferty had a chance to show what he could do and done nothing. There is nothing creative coming from our midfield to be fair which didn't help him. SG will need a few more Windows before he can be judged.

09 Dec 2018 18:50:15
microsoft windows wouldn't help SG right now, he needs to widen his horizons and look carefully at the bigger picture, far far too many team changes, positional changes, and too many from our youth guys to seasoned pro's are losing game time to loanee impostors.

09 Dec 2018 18:57:50
Coop, you say Stevie G will need a few more windows, my question is do you think King has the money to back him?

09 Dec 2018 20:06:30
My answer to that goalie is, i honestly don't know if king has the funds to back gerrard, but there's most definitely money/ investment coming from somewhere mate!

10 Dec 2018 10:21:53
Coop, if lafferty's goal stood, which it should have, you would not be on here talking nonsense👍. Well you probably would, but it would be about big rio's howler👍😂.

09 Dec 2018 16:46:48
That was the worst 90 mins of football my poor eyes have witnessed for a long time. The boys were round for sunday tea and they can't believe the performance either. Devoid of ideas and very poor against a team with 10 men who have barely won all season.
