Just a question. What did you think of Gareth McCauley? I know it’s only 45 minutes but opinions must be there, value ArthurD's.

Agree4 Disagree4

11 Nov 2018 21:22:40
I thought he looked good mate. Solid and composed, but and there is a but, the game was already won and Motherwell we’re sitting almost all in their own box. He wasn’t really put under any sort of pressure at all. Would definitely like to see more of him based on first appearances. Perhaps he and Goldson could be the solid 2 we need at the moment.

11 Nov 2018 21:17:09
Thought we looked better defensively when he came on👍.

11 Nov 2018 21:56:24
McCauley and goldson would be solid together.

11 Nov 2018 22:29:52
Great result and performance but I don’t understand how anyone can judge McCauley based on that.

They offered absolutely nothing whatsoever in the second half and he was therefore under no pressure at any time. He may be great but let’s see how he gets on against an attack or two.

Great to put a team to the sword like that.

11 Nov 2018 22:49:28
He really had nothing to defend, nobody running at him making him turn, no real double banking to assist Tavernier, never under pressure at set pieces. Difficult to judge, although he looked composed enough, much in the same way Clint Hill did at first. Sooner or later he'll face a real test and that's when we might see the real MacAuley.

12 Nov 2018 09:07:45
As everyone has said, he was under little pressure yesterday but I liked his performance. He was talking everyone through the game and showing leadership in a young team on the pitch. Exactly what we are paying him for. He looks physically in great shape and a real specimen as well, if his legs are still there then I see no reason why he can’t become one of central defensive partners, we really have to find our top two though and kick on and start getting some clean sheets in December. That is going to be s big month!

11 Nov 2018 20:32:48
Obviously coming from the same country, I would love Davis at Rangers, just like McCauley and Lafferty, what’s your opinion? Would you like him at Rangers or a younger version ( if they can find one )? As Imback said on this site, players like Davis are hard to get.

Agree4 Disagree2

11 Nov 2018 21:32:56
Ulsterman, Davis has been great for us and Southampton and i'm sure he would love to return to Rangers. Question is what does Gerrard think of him?

11 Nov 2018 22:54:21
I posted on here some time ago that a former Southampton director said Davis has had several run-ins with his manager since the summer, he knows he cannot spend much more time in the reserves and that the club would not be hard to deal with if Rangers came calling.

He said that Davis told him he was a professional and would always give of his best, but Rangers were in his heart. If Stevie G wanted this guy, he'd be here in a heartbeat. He's still got miles in the legs and would be a great acquisition, but who knows, maybe the gaffer has hotter irons in the fire.

11 Nov 2018 20:03:00
I have to say Gareth McAuley done well when he came in even though Motherwell didn’t offer much in 2nd half he was a calming presence in the back line which we probably need at the minute, I’d like to see him Goldson together are could Gerrard try the 3cbs again with mcauley included.

Agree4 Disagree5

12 Nov 2018 08:06:43
McAuley has loads of experience in the EPL and is also a seasoned international so he will be a quality addition to the team when required.

11 Nov 2018 19:26:42
Brilliant today. Been saying for weeks someone was due a hammering. Good link up play between forwards, midfield close to strikers when needed, communication all over the park and individual battles one.

I couldn't care that it was ten men for a hefty part, this Well team have milked beating us and out musciling on too many occasions for my liking.

I hope now the team imbeds in and fights like that every game and smashes teams at home, it's our fortress and let's make it the most unhealth of places too visit. Keep this momentum going BEARS.


Agree8 Disagree3

11 Nov 2018 19:23:56
Big plus for me today, apart from the goals of course, was the quality of the corners and free kicks into the box. Just heard Stevie G on Rangers tv singing the praises of young Middleton who he has to literally drag off the training pitch at the end of each session. Obviously the practice is paying off as evidenced by the almost undefendable balls he kept whipping in. Also a big shout out to Andy Halliday. I thought he was superb today. Everybody is quick to criticise him on these sites so only fair to give him such well deserved praise. Magnificent performance today and it will give the rest something to think about. We are only 2 points behind and still in Eurpoe. Who wouldn't have taken that at the start of the season?

Agree5 Disagree2

11 Nov 2018 19:47:08
I thought we looked better defensively when mcauley came on. Middleton's corners remind me of albertz's corners, very dangerous👍.

11 Nov 2018 20:02:25
We've found ourselves a gem with the boy Middleton. This boy is going to be a mainstay in our team.

11 Nov 2018 20:38:50
Coldo, agree that McAuley looked pretty composed but to be fair Motherwell were not in the frame by then so he was never under any pressure.

11 Nov 2018 21:22:47
Seeker, totally agree with your point re Andy Halliday. The whipping boy for many but I feel he adds more balance to the team with him being naturally left footed. I would keep him in there until Barasic returns from injury. Good performance today by all the boys and pleased to see Grezda getting off the mark. If we continue to play to our strengths, we can mount a better challenge this year.

11 Nov 2018 17:50:17
I have read people advocating the likes of pena holt etc to comeback and do a job. These type of players were losing 5 goals every game to celtic, these type of players struggled to beat spl teams on a weekly basis. How on earth does anyone think that these type of players will add to our squad? We have player at the club who are already much better than the dross like pena and holt. I ask, who would we drop to accomodate the likes of pena and holt? The answer is that we wouldn't drop anyone for this dross. I wish people would switch on and think about it. We will never get to the top of scottish football or play in europe like we have been with the likes of pena, holt, mckay etc in our team👍.

Agree5 Disagree6

11 Nov 2018 18:19:34
Coldo. So what's your opinion on as you say "the likes" of Halliday? I'll admit I thought Halliday was never rangers class for the last season or two but Gerrard seems to get the best out of him. Why can't that happen for holt or Pena? Just after a 7-1 win and your moaning about players who aren't even in the squad atm. Unreal.

11 Nov 2018 18:31:34
Dunoon, I'm moaning because people have been suggesting them. what's halliday got to do with pena and holt being useless? No where did I mention halliday as the "likes"👍 if you think pena and holt are the answer then you are being "unreal"👍.

11 Nov 2018 18:38:38
I think halliday is doing well but if barasic is fit then halliday goes back to the bench👍. Do you think holt and pena should be in the team dunoon? No of course you don't so what's your point? 🙃👍.

11 Nov 2018 18:44:19
So because rangers won today that means that I can't discuss topics that people have discussed on here? Should I wait a day until the joy has passed. Have a day off dunoon👍.

11 Nov 2018 18:49:18
Totally agree coldo, loved wee holty always burst a gut for us but tbh he will never get us where we want back to. Even excusing all the off field crap with pena, the guy was a waste of a jersey. So far off the pace it was unreal, would have fancied my wee granny Jeannie against him in a race.

11 Nov 2018 19:08:12
Holt and pena would be used to cover injuries if they were lucky. But who would they be ahead of in the queue? Jack, arfield, coulibaly, ejaria, dorrans, rossiter, mcrorie or docherty? Gerrard has done well getting the best out of players but he is not a miracle worker. Neither or holt or pena would play ahead of any player in the list above. We will probably sign a creative mid in january aswell. Thoughts dunoon? 👍.

11 Nov 2018 19:56:18
If our manager decides to bring back and play Holt or Pena, I will bow to his superior knowledge of the game and his coaching ability.

We all have opinions on players but we’re irrelevant when decisions are made.

As is my want, I’ll get right behind every player who is given a blue jersey to wear by Gerard.

11 Nov 2018 19:59:24
I agree with the statement on halliday. If he was on loan you would be slagging him saying he has no place in our team. But he is a different player under gerrard. Why could Holt? or Pena for that matter not be better players?

11 Nov 2018 20:09:22
Folk said the same about warbs and pedro's superior knowledge DK 18 when they constantly played players that the fans knew would never be good enough and we all know how that played out👍.

11 Nov 2018 20:21:10
Fintytint, do you remember the banter years? Do you want to go back to the banter years? If we start filling our team with players like that then we will go back to the banter years👍.

11 Nov 2018 20:28:50
I'd be surprised if Holt and pena got back in team.

11 Nov 2018 21:12:49
With better players around them you never lnow. Halliday looks better than last season.

11 Nov 2018 21:44:50
Gerrard obviously gets the best out of Halliday. Why can't the same be said for holt and Pena? Or would you rather the whole team failed just so you can say "I told you so"? We paid afew quid for Pena, if he comes back with a better attitude and can contribute to the cause then what's the problem? People like you are never satisfied caldo.

11 Nov 2018 22:04:40
Why are you talking about the whole team failing dunoon? Who said that? I can tell you right now that I told you so! I said two years ago that the majority of warbs players were never good enough and I said last october that pedro and his players would never be good enough and I was correct, like many others on here👍. Why do you want bad players at our club? Do you not want to win titles? 🙃👍. We paid 3mil for pena, that's no even funny! 👍.

12 Nov 2018 00:06:34
Everybody deserves another chance.

12 Nov 2018 07:04:41
Pena has had his chance fat waste of a shirt.

11 Nov 2018 17:36:37
Great result, I think if Grezda is coached well he could make us a fortune. We still need a midfield general, hopefully jack steps up. We should also take the boy menga from livi, he wouldn't cost much and he is a beast.

Agree2 Disagree5

11 Nov 2018 18:23:57
You serious about menga lol?

11 Nov 2018 19:55:04
Grezda was terrific today, especially in the second half! The good thing also was grezda got the full 90 minutes under his belt,
which of course is terrific for his improving match fitness! Katic has though lost all confidence.

11 Nov 2018 20:05:33
If you want any player from livi then it has to be liam kelly, I think he will be a top keeper👍.

11 Nov 2018 21:11:56
Did we not just let Kelly go?

11 Nov 2018 22:05:38
Yip we did let him go👍.

11 Nov 2018 22:42:05
Typical 😩 usual rangers, he would have enjoyed that today then lol.

11 Nov 2018 17:27:15
Tickled pink. Saw best free flowing football from gers in a while. Think Grezda showed he was filling missing link. First of many I hope. Nice to have another goal threat. Most stand out point was that that was exactly how we should play Tic.

Agree3 Disagree3

11 Nov 2018 18:41:50
We should play Celtic when they have 10 men? We shouldn't read too much into this result.

11 Nov 2018 21:15:53
@mikeger - well done, first negative post after the game. 👍
So why don't we just give the 3 points back since it was only against 10 men? Some people are never happy!

11 Nov 2018 21:12:50
Just won 7-1 and you have to be negative.

11 Nov 2018 22:20:13
We had only ten men for the last part of the game once Motherwell hammered the young lad that came on.

11 Nov 2018 22:25:25
Mike ger, you write your anally retentive guff just to be read man?

11 Nov 2018 17:21:39
What a game Alfredo Morelos was amazing so were all the other players bring on Livingston.

Agree2 Disagree3

11 Nov 2018 17:14:32
7-1 Peter how do you like them apples

Motherwell captain Peter Hartley could face Scottish FA sanctions after saying it was "fun to watch" former Rangers defender Fabio Cardoso "weeping" after breaking his nose last season.

Agree4 Disagree3

11 Nov 2018 17:43:02
This game just showed that when motherwell are dealt with properly by referees they don't get away with that sort of thing. I am all for teams being aggressive, they should be and we are included in that, but when you cross the line you need to be punished for it, that also includes us. I am glad it gets it right up Hartley though that's nice.

11 Nov 2018 17:44:15
It was funny to watch you getting pumped 7-1 Peter! 😂.

11 Nov 2018 17:53:39
Spot on jordy15👍.

11 Nov 2018 17:54:13
Jordy15 your spot on mate but that was an assault by the Motherwell player that broke his nose
That was a red card all day long

11 Nov 2018 18:51:51
Thought the tackle that injured young atakayi looked a shocker as well from where I was.

11 Nov 2018 21:18:54
Your right william it was all out assault, one deserving of a stint inside lol. I just think that when a team like well who rely heavily on being aggressive that's fine but you see yourself sometimes with our refs these guys get to make 3 or 4 pretty poor challenges before seeing a card which ultimately could result in breaking up 3 or 4 good attacks, on the other hand if they get a booking when they should they won't be able to make that challenge again.

FB your right there wasn't much made of it really but I think it was pretty late the we man's 1st touch gave the defender a sniff.
