Just reading that Stevie G. was worried about big Goldson, it is chest pains not a virus but pains around the chest, one good thing is that it’s not the same problem as he had at Brighton, he played with the pain in Russia 🇷🇺 . Hope the big guy is ok, Stevie G. said he should be alright for Livingston.

Agree3 Disagree3

12 Nov 2018 10:58:45
Going on what was said before the match I don't think goldson was ever going to play. He pretty much said he was going to rest him as he has played nearly every game so far and it was starting to affect his performance due to the fatigue.

Gerrard slaughtered the guy after the Moscow game.

12 Nov 2018 09:53:23
Great win yesterday regardless of how many players Motherwell had on the pitch. The penalty award was correct. McHugh's arms were both up in the air therefore making it likely that they would make contact with the ball being struck towards goal. I like the look of Grezda and Arfield was class. We have Livingston, Hearts and Aberdeen in our next three league games and if we win the first two of these we will be top of the league on our own (the unwashed play the sheep on 2nd Dec in the league cup) . If that happens, let's see if we can keep our noses in front until we play them at Ibrox at Christmas.

We can always be optimistic Doiger, We are due a wee run.

12 Nov 2018 09:23:56
Just want to thank all those posters who answered my question on McCauley, all honest opinions, some cagey. ( as I would expect) but all had a good word, I myself believe that the guy will be a good short term acquisition, come on if the regular centre half’s are injured, but one never knows, one thing though, he’ll play his heart out because he was a Rangers supporter Like Davis in his mummy’s womb.

Agree7 Disagree4

13 Nov 2018 09:32:58
McAuley looked very very promising when he came on.

12 Nov 2018 08:43:12
Looking at the TV pictures I don’t think the Motherwell lad deserved a sending off
It very much looked like ball to hand
But but but how often have Rangers been on the wrong end of horrendous refereeing decisions and all and sundry have said get on with it.
You would have to question the overall standards as they are very poor.

Agree3 Disagree7

12 Nov 2018 10:54:26
If you stand with both hands in the air at a corner and the ball hits one of them, that is ball to hand as well but it going to be 100% a pen.

The pen we got was because he had hands in an unatural position and prevented a shot being on target.

12 Nov 2018 10:55:44
He should have been sent off before that, received a yellow for persistent fouls then straight after the yellow brought down Morelos that should have been 2nd. Sending off was justified.

12 Nov 2018 11:03:40
He fouled then handballed within minutes of being carded the first time. No one to blame but himself. How much of a tw*t is Michael Stewart btw, saying it was never a penalty, he made himself as big as possible and his hands were as high in the air as they could be.

12 Nov 2018 12:16:56
He dived like a goalie, no idea how daftit's like Stewart think it's not a penalty.

12 Nov 2018 13:21:02
Definate pen, no doubt about it. Should have walked before that, two fouls in a minute after being booked. 👍.

12 Nov 2018 13:33:02
I agree it was ball to hand but he deliberately raised his hands to make himself bigger and that makes it a foul.

As for Michael Stewart, he's an absolute roaster who is just out to make a name for himself like Sutton did by being controversial.

12 Nov 2018 14:55:33
If you throw yourself into a block like that with your arms up you run the risk of giving away a penalty and getting booked. 50/50 depending on how the ref interprets the incident.
We seen some strange decisions at the WC and they had the benefit of VAR.

13 Nov 2018 00:22:08
Dermatitis Gallagher on refund watch on sky this morning said definately penalty even the Motherwell manager said no issues with penalty or 2nd yellow. Just raging about first yellow. Pretty sure it was for persistent fouling tho snd not just that one foul.

13 Nov 2018 09:33:22
Pen or not we would have humped them rotten.

I really like Morelos but very disappointed to see him clapping Thomson at sending off, another day he would have been booked.

12 Nov 2018 12:18:40
Agreed jboy I hate seeing that. Did u see gaurdiola making a beeline for sterling raging about him showboating in the last min? Brillisnt to see that for a mansger.

12 Nov 2018 12:32:02
Spot on guys, we need to show a bit of class. Leave that stuff to the other lot. Suits them down to the ground.

12 Nov 2018 13:01:20
Thought so too but did you see how quick his team mates were to remove him from the situation. Happened a couple of times, jack etc just pulling him away from these situations.

12 Nov 2018 00:56:03
Well done rangers today that was a great team performance! Only fault I could pick was Katic got taxi'd for Motherwell's goal, even though I rate him! Every goal Rangers scored today was a well worked goal from the whole team more or less! I thought Middleton played well and it was great to see an inch perfect pass from Grezda to Middleton and Middleton didn't even need to look where he was putting it, that's the co-ordination you want to see from your wingers! 👌🏻.

Agree4 Disagree3

12 Nov 2018 08:49:38
Obviously a couple of jungle jims trolling around the site. Very quiet this morning. Bham was on trying to put a positive spin on their result but you could tell he was hurting. Look at the points we've dropped almost with the last kick in games and we are only 2 behind with a better goal difference. And we are a new team with a new manager. Very good yesterday, especially after a tough European tie.

12 Nov 2018 00:34:40
Please tell me i'm not the only bear who notices how emotionless Ejaria is every game 😂 he's destined to be a top player though if he keeps putting in performances like that!

Agree0 Disagree6

12 Nov 2018 12:34:10
Apparently he is just a big quiet laddie who never seems to get fazed by anything. He is going to be some player.

12 Nov 2018 00:10:17
On reflection today's joyous moment has me thinking early Christmas for one reason. Pre SG we would have met Well home/ away with certain amount of trepidation. Today shows SG has the team playing as a unit which is wonderful to see.

Agree7 Disagree2

11 Nov 2018 22:25:23
Does anyone think we've let one go by letting Liam Kelly leave? Every time I've seen him this season he's been different class. I know people talk highly of young McRorie but surely Kelly would've been a good successor to McGrgeor if he went out on loan in the meantime.

Agree5 Disagree4

11 Nov 2018 23:06:00
I think kelly will be a top keeper👍.

11 Nov 2018 23:09:46
The lad did not want to go out on loan again. He asked to be paid or released.
He says he hopes to return one day on freedom of contract as a better keeper.
Good luck to him. We can't keep up veryone.

12 Nov 2018 00:09:25
Kelly is class. But McGregor is better the fact he has more experience. It woululd have been wrong to keep the young boy on the bench.

12 Nov 2018 06:25:35
Totally agree coldo, liam kelly is already a very good keeper, who will go on to become a terrific keeper!
Still think he'll be back as our keeper one day!

12 Nov 2018 06:45:08
Better than fod shuda been second choice for us.

12 Nov 2018 07:59:12
Kelly was outstanding and hopefully he will return to Ibrox in the future.

12 Nov 2018 15:25:55
Jackson the lad said play me or let me go, did not want to be second choice.

11 Nov 2018 21:14:02
For all the doom and gloom merchants on here👍
Grezda is never Rangers class?
Katic and Worrall are Tom Kite?

Tav is rubbish, never captain material but sell him for £7 million?
Morelos misses too many chances but sell him for £15 million!?
Gerrard to slow at making subs?
Our own youth never given a chance?
Worse start to a season ever!?

I think today's game puts them all too bed. Yes, we beat a 10 man Motherwell but we were ruthless the full game. Once Grezda is up to full match fitness, I believe we could have a genuine goal threat and exciting talent from the wide areas. Tav was immense driving the team on constantly. I thought the balance in the middle was immense with Jack, Arfield and Ejaria all linking up well together.

The young centre half were also rock solid against a physical strike force.
Stop over analysing the team after every game. We are Rangers, most LOYAL fans in the world. Stop acting like the unwashed who after a poor start to the season were turning on Brenda and were wanting Popcorn Teeth back ( the Hivs are 8th )!
Yes there is a long way too go and there will be disappointing results along the way. But we could be on the verge of something special this season.
In Gerrard We Trust. Let's Go! #55👍.

Agree9 Disagree7

11 Nov 2018 21:42:33
Careful UJ, other fans are allowed an opinion too you know!

Not many of those fans are heard praising our players, always easier to slag them off!

11 Nov 2018 21:43:58
I thought katic had a nightmare again UJ, his form is concerning. We were anything but solid at the back. We looked much better at the back when mcauley came on. We were clinical and never let up. I was glad grezda got two goals and an assist, I'm sure he will push on👍.

11 Nov 2018 22:00:17
2nd half grezda was excellent after a quiet first. Agree with coldo Katic looks like his confidence is shot he had a nightmare again first hslf.

11 Nov 2018 22:15:42
Good post UJ.

Think Katie is just confidence. Tests will come again on the road and we have to maintain these levels over a run of games.

Comforting signs mind you.

11 Nov 2018 22:16:06
McAuley looks good.

11 Nov 2018 22:45:28
The problem with most of these posters, UJ, is not that they over analyse, but that they don't (or can't) analyse at all, they just whine and moan with predictable knee-jerk reactions to every wrong call or error made without ever seeing the positives in our club's position. I've seen them declaring that Gerrard doesn't know when substitutions are required and that maybe we would have been better off if we'd got McInnes.

I've seen them asking why we didn't go for Billy Davies, or why we don't bring back Ryan Hardie or that maybe Pena will come back and be a star or that Scott Allan could be our saviour. They want youth one week, experience the next. Players are world beaters one week, rubbish the next.

I'm convinced that very few of these 'supporters' couldn't find their way to Ibrox in a limousine driven by John Greig. Against ten men or not, today on the whole was quality and the sort of performance that Gerrard always knew was in us, and it will lift the whole place. However, if there is any sort of blip after the international break, just watch for the moaning morons slaughtering the team again, which is their normal fall-back position.

11 Nov 2018 23:04:30
It was really good today, two quality additions in january and I think we will have the making of a really good team👍.

12 Nov 2018 07:15:02
For me we need 3 players. A solid right back and move tav into an attacking midfield position. A no nonsense left back and a hard attacking central midfielder. I think our playing style would defy anything that the SPL could throw at us with those changes. Grezda is starting to be the player SG thought he would be. Nearly there guys let's go for it now.

12 Nov 2018 08:56:42
the problem with Katic is he is a young man who has had his confidence blown to pieces by the management. Dropping for Worral when he hadnt put a foot wrong really, has really affected him. Them hauling him off at hamilton and yesterday is only going to make it worse

i understand the reason behind dropping him for Worall as young players can't be asked to be cconsistant over a long period but it has clearly shook him and i think it will be a while before we see the Katic of early season.

12 Nov 2018 12:38:36
To be fair Katic was carrying an injury earlier in the season. As some posters have said, he is young and will learn. I've seen enough of him to know that he has what it takes. I'm looking for big things from him over the next few montbs.

12 Nov 2018 14:54:25
IMO if people realise we are a work in progress and when it does click ( albeit against 10 men ) like yesterday then the future looks bright.
@coldo - totally agree. If we can get to January still in the mix then a couple of quality additions could well be the difference in the run in.
Let’s Go! #55 🔴⚪️🔵.
