Does anyone on here fancy harry cochrane from hearts I think he would be a great signing.

14 Jul 2018 20:44:06
Good to see Dundee Utd getting beat again today not rangers related but just made me happy to see them struggle😂.

Agree15 Disagree5

14 Jul 2018 21:02:21
They deserve to rot

14 Jul 2018 22:42:27
They lost 1M last year and another year in the championship means more debt then they sold the training centre to raise funds in feb 2018 there in 1.8M debt right now if u look the players wages then season tickets sold the figures add up to a very tight budget 😁😁 Dundee utd are falling apart which I love .

15 Jul 2018 08:18:56
Yes wonder if they will go down our financial route and get loans off their director s to get them through til season book money time. Worry about ourselves and let them rot.

14 Jul 2018 20:21:52
Does anyone have any realistic ideas on someone coming in that can finish.

12 goals in 35 games

14 Jul 2018 21:05:03
Mikael ishak Nuremberg fc 29 goals in all competitions last season only 25 and wouldn't have to pay much more than maybe 1.5 2m imo

14 Jul 2018 21:05:12
For Hearts.

14 Jul 2018 21:30:40
Like him or hate him, Lafferty would do a job for us, and that is what matters. Does he suit what SG is planning? That is another matter.

15 Jul 2018 10:32:32
He got 31 in 104 last time he was at rangers with good players round him so what makes you think he’s better now

14 Jul 2018 17:54:29
not really into debating this, i just want to express my opinion.

Jason Cummings along side Umar Sadiq would have excited me. Morelos is NOT a team player and is no good alongside a striking partner, just my opinion. Cummings was available for a decent price, i think this could be one of SG's mistakes. hope i'm wrong but Morelos lost his way last season and is still in the twilight zone.

Agree3 Disagree20

14 Jul 2018 18:29:18
Not sure if Cummings is the answer, neither is Morelos. I've reserved judgement on him until now. For me, i'd sell him if a decent offer came in. Lafferty i think would be an option.

14 Jul 2018 18:37:58
No really wantinnto debate this either Ritchie but Morelos is ten times the player Jason could ever hope to be . Morelosvwas dropped and Jason got his place and was rank . don’t even think he kicked the ball and was replaced with alfredo second half. Jason got his chance in my opinion and wasn’t up to it . Entirely my opinion right enough and so is the fact that Stevie has not made one glimmer of a mistake to date

14 Jul 2018 19:25:31
Morelos IS a team player and was at his best with strike partner (Miller) last season.

14 Jul 2018 20:15:48
Morales is not a team player!

14 Jul 2018 21:22:44
Who is Morales?

14 Jul 2018 23:15:24
So in your opinion, molsgoals, Cummings got 45mins and didn't cut it? Giz peace man. Cummings got humped out on the wing most of the time and his goal return wasn't bad but he's at Peterborough now so it's moot an we still need another striker. don't think it'll be Solanke but it needs to be someone who knows what a net swishing sounds like!

14 Jul 2018 23:17:53
To hi-light what nonsense this is Ritchie you think Cummings and Sadiq would be a great partnership? We’ve no even seen the boy Sadiq play? Same as I said before about the big boy that came wi windass according to the likes of yourself was a world beater and straight first team material?

please let’s get real here . buffalo will come good . granted that was his worse game on thurs but Stevie still backs him and so do I . So please have a little more patience, till jan at least

15 Jul 2018 07:43:37
Everyone has their opinions on jason cummings, but IMO he most certainly,
NEVER got any kind of fair chance or run, in our starting 11! Anyone on here who denies that, clearly has selected and tunnel vision! I stand with the opinion, that we should have signed jason cummings, permanently!
I truly think we've missed a very good chance, to sign a natural goalscorer, in the correct system that suited him. Cummings could have been our ally mccoist, for the next good few years and nobody will change my mind otherwise! Of course cummings isn't the finished article,
but he's a very natural goalscorer and at still only 22 years old, would have improved, year on year! I've also got no doubt, that cummings would have learned the art of playing as our lone, no.9, through the middle! He can put the ball in the net and the guy WANTED so much, to sign with rangers, on a long-term, permanent contract. He wanted to be here, playing for glasgow rangers! I'm old enough to remember a young ally mccoist, come back up the road from Sunderland, in the very early 80's. He couldn't hit a barn door, at the beginning and had a terrible time, down at sunderland. He became our record goalscorer, of all time! I'm not going to make the assumption, that jason cummings,
would have become our record goalscorer of all time, if we had have signed him permanently, but i do see similarities! I also look at celtic striker, leigh "the thumb" griffiths. Cummings is a very similar, styled striker to him and their careers are very similar, to date. Griffiths came back up the road from wolves, to sign for celtic and look at his time with them, since he did come back! I honestly believe fellow bears, that there's a very good chance, that cummings could have done the same for us and became our griffiths! Cummings will score goals anywhere, if given a proper chance and playing in a system that suits him, giving him time to mature and learn, all the other aspects, of being a striker! He's still only 22 years old, into the bargain.

15 Jul 2018 08:02:50
Any update on Lafferty for Wallace?

15 Jul 2018 09:42:46
I WANT to sign for rangers so bad, ye think I should be gave a chance?
Cunning’s had PLENTY of chances, albeit from the bench, didn’t work for him, you say play him in a system that suits him? Stevie and karanka if yer reading then now you know you should change your whole system to fit in Jason Cummings!
I wanted to it to work out for Cummings I really did, but it just didn’t happen! We still have Herrera tho, maybe Stevie should change his system to fit him in eh?

15 Jul 2018 10:44:50
Yea your right kenny. super it sounds like Jason is your love child or summit. he never scored goals at Nottingham? Oh but I suppose they never changed their system to suit or gave him a chance. He scored three against Falkirk I think and that was because alfredo was being mannarked . we could never afford that system against better teams . I to truely wanted him to work as I do alfredo . but Jason showed little . was bullied off the ball at every turn and looked so out of his depth it was scarey. He’s gone now so let’s move on . We will see how he does at ports and if he excels like you say he will . Stevie could always tempt him back . but I doubt he will but you never know . Good luck Jason whatever. nice tattoos tho

15 Jul 2018 10:59:03
He didn't have plenty of chances. From the bench like you stated, doesn't equate in my book, to be given a fair crack of the whip! Read the post properly! I said he could have matured into a much better, all round striker, if we had signed him! I certainly wasn't saying to change a full team to suit cummings. But his best position to date, is in a 2 up front, which would have benefited us, IMO, as stevie G has constantly said, that he won't stick to any particular, rigid system! Murty brought cummings in on loan and then for some reason, didn't give him a chance, as he must have known his strengths, before bringing him on loan in the first place! So kennyd9,try reading the post and think what i'm actually saying, instead of the bull your insinuating, i'm meaning! Its not rocket science pal!

15 Jul 2018 11:37:11
If I was him I would have burst my a*$e every time I came off the bench! Show I was worth a place in the team, even on is few occasions he started he wasn’t up to it! V Falkirk I’m sure he played left of a front three and scored a hatrick, sort of showed his level scoring a hatrick v championship side!
I was so excited when he signed then For me he was a massive let down!
I hope he goes on to have an excellent career, never know in future he may get a chance to come back but currently he is not good enough!
Also mark Hately didn’t have the greatest of starts, should we persevere with Herrera?
No? Didn’t think as much 😳

15 Jul 2018 12:48:07
Herrera is gash and hasn't done anything in his career! Mark hateley, came to rangers with an injury, if you can remember, but was a superb all round, centre forward.

15 Jul 2018 13:52:32
Let me begin by saying I hate giving credit to any of that lot. Especially a wee jakey like Griffiths but he was much more established than Cummings at similar stages of their career. All Cummings has done is have a decent scoring record in the Scottish Championship. Griffiths had maintained a decent scoring record at a few different clubs by this stage. While Cummings is now off to Peterborough, Griffiths was on his way to banging them in up here and winning a bunch of awards like young player of the year and getting in the SPL team of the season. Nothing I have seen from Cummings suggests he is ready to make that kind of impact. If we are talking about giving guys a chance, what makes Cummings so special that he deserves it ahead of any number of other strikers? Where was the list of clubs queuing up to sign him before he wound up at Peterborough? We definitely need options up front but if Cummings is the best we can come up with, we are in for another long hard season.

14 Jul 2018 14:21:39
Afternoon Bears,
Just had a look at Solanke on youtube. I know youtube could make me look like Laudrup but from the footage he looks to be an all round decent player, should be a great addition, IF.

Anyhow the real reason i'm on as is the norm when on youtube I end up watching Rangers footage and for the umpteenth time watched the highlights of us v them semi final 2016.

Q: Is Barry Mckays goal the best most enjoyable Rangers goal in the last 8 years. Never get tired of watching the ball bulge that net. Still makes the hairs stand up. Let hope this season brings us plenty of similar moments!

Agree11 Disagree4

14 Jul 2018 15:59:53
for me its when you hear BARRIEEEE MCKAYYY

gives me goosebumps each and every time.

14 Jul 2018 17:17:41
Aye the commentator makes it. Made it all the better when he skipped past broon

14 Jul 2018 19:20:40
I like jamie ness old firm goal. Belter!

14 Jul 2018 19:40:29
Rfc_Chris, Yep that goal was top class, well remembered!, however the fact lego head was spun into the ground like a corkscrew puts Barry's slightly ahead, LOL. hopefully in 12 months time we are debating who scored the best goal, Umar, Fredo, Solanke - Tav, about time he came back to form. ATB

14 Jul 2018 22:04:53
What about big Berties goal against them in the league cup semi final. Never has anyone struck a ball so sweetly at the national stadium.

15 Jul 2018 00:06:04
Hi ArthurD, Last 8 yrs ish only, I would like to sit with you and enjoy the bottle of whisky I have signed in my cupboard by the legendergy JA for hours/ days on our best moments prior to armageddon. However that bottle as long as I live and breath, will never be opened. He was and is utter class as a player and gent. We can only dream of another Albertz.

15 Jul 2018 08:05:37
Still breaks my heart that we no longer have Waggy and McKay even Bates they were all good players Waggy was a work horse, McKay although not a work horse had flashes of brilliance and Bates would have saved us 2 or 3 million on this Cooper guy

15 Jul 2018 10:57:16
Grass is always greener ( dare I say that . even hatevthat colour I’m so biggeted ) simply. waggie ran his course . ended up out his depth . good against Falkirk . Ayr ect but struggled against the higher up teams . Barry simply cut a deal with the magic hat when he was here and stalled for a cash cow move to Nottingham. if he had buckled down he would be in Stevie’s plans. Bates the same had some great games but some very very poor ones too. Stevie will sort it son. the future is bright . all these guys are where they should be. all great boys but fell a bit short . fir me anyhow

14 Jul 2018 13:27:56
Can the 2 new boys play in the away leg? I know they never got in on time for the home leg. Or does the registration cover the whole tie?

Agree0 Disagree1

14 Jul 2018 13:46:17
No weren't registered for round1

14 Jul 2018 17:07:34
Do you not get 2 wildcards though?

14 Jul 2018 18:04:40
You do but they weren't registered in time for round 1 both can play in next round

14 Jul 2018 12:22:18
I don't get why some people are saying it devastating that we didn't tie down Jason Cummings! I get we are in desparate need of a forward or two but sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture and it's about his attitude aswell Do we want people at the club that can lose that bit of respect I don't think Gerrard would tolerate it and good as we are trying to get into the mindset of having winners and die trying!

Agree10 Disagree9

14 Jul 2018 12:16:55
I said on here when we signed Flanagan that he would play left back and was shot down. He is equally as good on the left and is about 4/ 5 levels above John. Flanagan will prove to be one of our best signings and probably best full back in the league. Tavernier was our top performer last season and keeps right back for that reason. Flanagan defends first and will rarely be caught out of position. Relax guys and enjoy the season. It's going to be a cracker!

Agree12 Disagree6

14 Jul 2018 12:26:22
I believe you will be correct.

14 Jul 2018 12:29:37
4/ 5 is a little harsh. We lacked left footed players on Thursday.

14 Jul 2018 15:04:41
Don't mind Flanagan at left back as long as we have a natural left footer in front of him. If not then we will have no width in the left hand side and most importantly no crosses into the box. Murphy and Flanagan won't work as a partnership so I would give John a shot at playing more advanced.

14 Jul 2018 18:23:28
totally agree if it wasnt for his nonsence liverpool would have gave flannigan a new contract, liverpools loss is our gain the type of player you want in a blue jersey great signing

14 Jul 2018 19:22:39
I noticed this both flanagan and murphy are both right footed.

15 Jul 2018 13:56:53
I would actually play Flannagan on the right side of a back 3 on Tuesday with John and Tavs as wing backs.

14 Jul 2018 11:34:54
I'd play Flanagan at right back giving us a left footer in John at left back. Sell Tavernier because he can't defend and not good enough to command a midfield spot, Windass, Morelos and Fodderingham. Release Wallace, Hererra, Halliday, Hodson and Forrester. We should have signed Cummings. Again we're hearing the be patient shout but we have been for 6 years and running out of the stuff. Play Middleton from the start and buy a decent striker who can actually header a ball.

Agree4 Disagree12

14 Jul 2018 11:46:55
So you want to get rid of a 22 year old striker who scored 18 goals last season because he's not good enough. Then replace him with another 22 year old striker who is unproven at SPL level and has only performed in the Scottish championship. I'm not saying Cummings wouldn't have been a decent signing but I'm confused about what your criteria for a good striker is?

Agree with the players you want rid of except Tav. Although I'm very surprised he was made captain. Thought he'd be more back up to Flanagan on the right

14 Jul 2018 14:33:22
cummings scored 6 in 18, what kind of return is that. he is worse than useless. hence he is out on loan yet again. he can't play 1 up and that's they way teams play now so forget him, i for one would never be happy to release morelos for cummings. no way would that make sense either in ability or financially
