Try to get Kent in again and a left back, probably better standard than Greg Taylor, no harm to the ladd.

However we need to move on about 8 players.
Holt, Dorrans, Dodoo, Gredza and potentially Barsic while players like Docherty, Jamie Murphy and Jake Hastie should probably be loaned.
While players like Halliday, Greg Stewart and Polster don't have much a future at the club and will be moved on in January or Summer 2020.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 12:03:53
Disagree about Docherty and Hastie going out on loan. Docherty has got to be part of the midfield squad this season and why sign the promising Hastie just to loan him out? The next four games could define our season already. Win them all and we'll be in the Europa League group stages and top of the league. Slip up and that would be a massive test for Gerrard's team even this early.

21 Aug 2019 12:51:14
No they wont, Halliday will get a new deal, Stewart has just signed and will be our 3rd Choice striker and will also give us depth out wide, and Polster is a project and I think could be steady cover at RB.

21 Aug 2019 13:27:22
Doiger, players with potential are signed and loaned out to develop all the time, which is exactly the category hastie falls into. Docherty could do with going out on loan again. Aribo arfield king kamara jack davis all before docherty. As I said yesterday docherty will play against the likes of alloa in the cup or he'll get a 10min cameo from the bench here and there in the spl, hardly what he needs to develop. 👍.

21 Aug 2019 16:12:44
Why should Halliday get new deal because allegedly he bleeds blue? He's c*** and nowhere near standard required. Never seen him have a good game.

21 Aug 2019 17:32:59
Common Millerbrandwilson. Fair enough you don't want andy halliday to get a new deal, which is of course your perogative, but to say you've never seen halliday having a good game?
Where have you been living of late the moon 🌒? 😂.

21 Aug 2019 09:25:26
Absolute disgrace that the record are reporting that Ryan Kent could down tools to force a move to rangers, this has only been printed to cause trouble and hinder the move, if there is one.

Agree4 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 08:04:12
I would be the first one to welcome Ryan Kent back to Rangers, my only worry now is can we afford the wage bill? With 10 new faces already through the door are we now not overloaded with talent and already looking beyond Kent?

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 10:18:53
Im also worried about how we are paying for all these players with hardly any players leaving or worse leaving for no fee!

Review Of The Day 21st August 2019

{Ed's Note - Ed001 has posted a new article entitled, Review Of The Day 21st August 2019

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 06:12:50
If we get Ryan Kent next week oh woaw then a striker as back up damn we will be tricky to play against so much quality.

Agree4 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 06:56:39
a few stick out

prosineski for red star, sauzee at marseilles and riquelme all top drawer but mendietta at valencia was the only player i remember we literally couldn’t get near and that was vs numan mols gio etc

guy passed it round us over both legs and valencia got to consec CL finals if i remember - he also got a move to real.

20 Aug 2019 22:08:28
Hi guys was talking to a workmate about the best player he has ever seen against rangers and he said Messi. For me it has to be del piero fro Juventus l. Ripped us apart at ibrox. So guys who the best opposition player you have seen at ibrox?

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Aug 2019 22:52:06
A young ronaldinho when he played for PSG. Even back then you could see the magic.

20 Aug 2019 22:53:35
Mario Kempes of Valencia in 1979. Cup Winners Cup match, he scored twice as they beat us 3-1 at Ibrox. He was one of Argentina’s star men that won the World Cup in 78.

20 Aug 2019 23:25:46
Player I was most impressed with was Riquelme from Villarreal . I thought he absolutely bossed the game.

20 Aug 2019 23:44:54
Messi is IMO the greatest of all time but if you are talking about individual performances against us I would agree Del Piero is up there mate.

I remember being blown away by the Valencia side that we drew a few years later. Mendieta, Kily Gonzalez and Angulo were outstanding. Stefan Effenberg was another with Bayern who was class. We've seen some crackers over the years.

21 Aug 2019 01:55:48
You ever hear the story about Riquelme mate? Fergie said he ran the show for them, was asked why he didn't just take him out. His answer? I couldn't effin get near him!

21 Aug 2019 02:49:30
Cambiger, remember Riquelme as well. One of the most underrated players ever I believe.

21 Aug 2019 06:39:55
One for me was Rummenige playing for Inter Milan, absolutely destroyed us on his own and nearly broke the Copland end crossbar with a shot from 30 yards.

21 Aug 2019 06:59:02
I was also at the rangers game against valencia at ibrox, in our 3-1 defeat way back in '79.God where do the years go? The argentinian mario kempes with that long, hateley like hair was superb that night. I also witnessed the superb alessandro del piero when juventus beat us in the champions league 4-1 in turin and 4-0 at ibrox. Poor alex clelland didn't know where he was that night, playing against the young, wonderfully talented del piero. What a performance he produced against us also.

21 Aug 2019 07:01:16
Mendietta for me when we played Valencia in Europe. He ran the show at Ibrox .

21 Aug 2019 07:53:16
Going on to what j1985 said regarding messi being the best player ever, i disagree with that.
Without a doubt IMHO diego maradonna is the greatest EVER player i've seen. What puts him ahead of messi for me, is his performances and what he's won with his country argentina, as well as being unplayable with the clubs he played for. I honestly don't think messi has hit anywhere near the heights for argentina, that maradonna has! Diego maradonna has also lifted the world cup. No brainer for me guys, he was the greatest! All about opinions of course, but i've tried to back up my logic as to why in my eyes he was the greatest footballer on the planet.

21 Aug 2019 08:52:41
Kenny Dalglish, we opened centenary stand and fans booed his every touch. He was awesome and was subbed to a standing ovation.

21 Aug 2019 09:50:56

21 Aug 2019 09:55:55
Obviously not a better player than some of the others, but never saw a game run s game like riquelme at ibrox. Absolutely destroyed us.

21 Aug 2019 10:08:21
there has been a few lol. but i will go with Del Piero.

21 Aug 2019 18:34:44
Brilliant story Snell, never heard that one.

20 Aug 2019 21:16:49
Wonder if the reason killie signed a new left back today is anything to do with them expecting a bid for the boy taylor? I think he would be decent for us if we were to go in for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2019 21:29:30
I don’t think he’s the answer. He hasn’t impressed me greatly in games against us and in last game he continually gave the ball away. There must be better options and if Barasic goes we should have another LB lined up for a fee.

21 Aug 2019 00:42:03
Even mentioning Taylor for Rangers shows such a disappointing level of ambition for the team. He's nowhere near it.

21 Aug 2019 07:58:25
Totally disagree daisy yore. Cracking young player, only 21 and can only get better. Seems some people aren't happy unless were spending millions on players they've never heard of.

21 Aug 2019 08:00:55
Am sure the same was said about Ryan Jack.

21 Aug 2019 08:33:03
Greg taylor is not rangers class. need I say more .

21 Aug 2019 11:36:01
Mikeger, what are you talking about? We don't spend millions on unheard of players, we bring in players of a certain level and potential, and Taylor isn't one of them. If you can't see that. it's your problem.

21 Aug 2019 12:36:32
Yeah you could say more gp. Maybe a reason why you think this would be good.

21 Aug 2019 13:20:04
That should read "maybe a reason why you think that about Taylor, would be good"

20 Aug 2019 18:35:26
Really frustrated that the Ed’s didn’t post my response but here goes again.

I clearly called out we’d signed two very very good players, in my opinion the two I was talking about was Aribo and Helander, although I acknowledge that the later is pure based on the transfer fee.

The other 8 players we’ve signed are quantity signings, purely to increase our squad, all 8 could easily not play and simply sit on the bench.

We were promised quality signings over quantity, 8 v 2 is very unbalanced.

Now you put a below average player from a poor Kilmarnock team into the mix then I’m lost for words at the overall average approach we’ve taken to transfers.

{Ed001's Note - have you ever thought it might not have come through? Whining about things not being posted is more likely to just get your posts deleted out of hand than help your case. Most of the time people complaining have sent it using a mobile and haven't realised their connection dropped off and so the post never came through.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2019 19:20:03
Fair play Ed, apologies I thought it was personal 🤪

Won’t happen again mate, sorry.

{Ed001's Note - no mate, I make a point of not looking at who has posted until after I have decided what to do with it.}

20 Aug 2019 19:25:25
Unless it’s Supercoop having a meltdown believe all posts make it through.

{Ed001's Note - not all mate. But those that don't are for good reason, such as overly personal attacks on another poster or trying to point score over things that really are not for a banter site. The regular posters do tend to get pretty much all posts through, simply because the content of the posts is decent. We tend to get a lot sent from new posters that has to be deleted though. Sadly the vast majority of people behind a keyboard spend their time trying to be nasty and abusive, which is why we have to pre-edit everything, rather than just allowing it to go straight up unchecked.}

20 Aug 2019 19:27:43
Greg Taylor is better than any lb we have Halliday was shocking on Sunday.

20 Aug 2019 21:06:06
A good insight to how things work. I know most of us on here have followed the site for a while and appreciate what you do for us! Keep up the good work!

{Ed001's Note - thanks mate. We did originally go without editing in the early days, but it meant I was spending my entire time removing stuff that shouldn't have been there. There was people posting up nasty comments about the disasters of Munich, Ibrox and Hillsborough and I am sure you can guess the kind of things that Rangers fans would post. It is sad what people think is ok to use to cause an argument online.}

20 Aug 2019 21:13:06
Thanks Ed001, good to hear fair and balanced editorial review process in place.

Supercoop, no disrespect and only good intentions in passing reference to you.

{Ed001's Note - we try to leave you as free as possible, it is only abuse and swearing, as we know kids read the sites, but really we don't want to get involved with editing if at all possible.}

20 Aug 2019 21:35:10
No problem bankie, we're all bears together on here with different opinions. that's what makes it healthy mate, if you catch my drift. Would just like to reiterate what some have already said in reference to thanking the good work the ed's do, to supply this fantastic site for us all to air our opinions and views. So from me also, i thank all the ed's very much for this terrific facility you guys supply for us! 👏👏
You all do a cracking job, cheers again.

{Ed001's Note - cheers SGL, over 18 years now since we started the first site, with absolutely no idea what to expect.}

21 Aug 2019 00:29:55
Hopefully this post to tell Katic to dry his eyes makes it through hahaha! Honestly mate, lighten up, we have definitely strengthened. It was the squad that needed strengthened more than the starting 11. It was when we needed to go to the bench or got suspensions or injuries that we fell apart last year.

21 Aug 2019 00:32:07
Gonna address sir rock katic's point. It's nonsense what you've posted there mate, 8 poor signing v 2 good ones? Based on what? You realise Steve Davis is one of those don't you? Jones has shown good performances in just last 2 starts, Edmondson hasn't put a foot wrong, ojo has a few goals and assists already and king is a premier league player who only played 30 mins. What an unbelievably negative post. The only questionable signing for me is greg stewart.

21 Aug 2019 00:11:30
Clearly you did not read my response properly so I’m not going to rewrite it, just ask you to re-read it.
Question though- would you rather we brought in a number of players and improve the overall squad, have a strong first 11 and strong options in reserve or, sign a couple of ‘big name players’ (say like a couple of Mexican internationals or a Portuguese international with over 100 caps) that don’t fit the team we are building and cause us to flop?

Have you also considered how difficult it is to bring players of a better ‘quality’ than say Davis, Jack, Kamara, Morelos, Tav etc etc to play in the Scottish league? Celtic have had to spend £7m on a player no one had heard of and £3m in a left back who looks terrible.

We clearly have brought in players that have improved the overall quality of the squad. Come back to me at the end of the season and if you’re not happy with the way things have gone fair enough. Oh and if you don’t want to renew your season ticket there’s 15k waiting to take it.

21 Aug 2019 00:16:21
Couldn't lace barisic boots tango 👍 big mans not had a run of 8 to 10 games yet to get a bit of confidence up and up to full match fitness. Still convinced wed see a different animal if he got a decent run in the tesm.

21 Aug 2019 08:01:40
Barisic has most definitely had enough chances herewego55.Always have said he's talented but i'd cut my losses and try and sell him now. It doesn't look as if he has the heart to play for our club, in the scottish game. Hope we can sign either max lowe or greg taylor, to replace barisic.

20 Aug 2019 16:14:24
Guys I don't have a dodgy box or a stick and willing to pay to watch but looks like match only to be televised outside the uk. This is ridiculous that no channel in the uk is willing to show the the match and maybe I should be looking at an illegal way of getting the match😡🇬🇧.

Agree2 Disagree0

20 Aug 2019 16:31:42

20 Aug 2019 17:15:22
Defo hesgoal I just watch it on iPad if I can't get it anywhere else also when do by sport start showing the Europa league games I saw they are showing a champions league game tonight.

20 Aug 2019 17:31:52
If you have a computer get a vpn and watch every game on Rangers TV. It very easy, nothing illegal or dogy about it. You can then cast or connect your computer to your tv. If your skint fair enough but if you can afford 50 quid a year that will get a vpn with unlimited download, try tunel bear.

20 Aug 2019 17:52:34
It’s on RTV worldwide for £9.99 all money goes to club.

20 Aug 2019 18:17:05
I don't even think you need the paid tunnel bear mate. You get 2gb a month for free and as far as I know you can't disconnect the VPN once the stream starts. It's just while connecting it's important and that way no data used. Never tried it personally but heard that is the way.

20 Aug 2019 18:57:23
Just signed up for Gers tv at £9.99👍🇬🇧.

20 Aug 2019 19:27:03
Well done Yately1 me too.

20 Aug 2019 19:55:42
Does the gets TV get you the game? . I thought it was only the unlimited package for outside UK.

20 Aug 2019 20:50:39
Yately is that for watching in uk? just checked rtv and the 9-99 is to watch anywhere but uk/ roi or have I read that wrong.

20 Aug 2019 21:19:30
Blue, that’s for viewing in uk✌️🇬🇧.

21 Aug 2019 00:08:41
sure its on rangers tv.

21 Aug 2019 00:17:24
He's goal is excellent only thing I don't like is I can't cast it to TV. Streams are always excellent the, if not try jond streams on twitter or YouTube if u can stand listening to the 2 clowns commentating 🤣🤣🤣.

20 Aug 2019 15:48:22
What’s everyone’s thoughts for Thursday?
Another difficult tie. I’m glad we’re away from home first.
Legia don’t seem to be conceding many goals but aren’t scoring a lot either.
I’d settle for the draw or a narrow win👍.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Aug 2019 16:32:55
We will come away with a victory away and at home rangers through 4-1 agg.

20 Aug 2019 17:13:06
I fancy us to sneak it 1-0 in the first leg in warsaw on thursday. I reckon morelos will score the only goal. I think we'll then go on to beat legia warsaw 2-0,in the 2nd leg at ibrox on thursday week. A comfortable 3-0 on aggregate.

20 Aug 2019 17:39:14
I would love that to be true but we've conceded against Killie, Hibs, Midtjylland almost at East Fife, no reason to think this team won't score at least one goal at some point we just have to make sure the Rangers blitzkrieg continues.

20 Aug 2019 19:26:21
4-2 on aggregate to the famous 👌 might see what odds I get 🤔.

20 Aug 2019 19:30:40
TJBB, don’t think McGregor has been good enough so far, hopefully he’s in inspired form tomorrow, believe we will be pinned back and defending for parts of the game.

20 Aug 2019 21:53:31
2-1 us both legs.

21 Aug 2019 00:18:15
I actually think well draw 1-1 tomorrow or might even get beat 2-1. Wouldn't be the end of the world n reckon we would go through comfortably with both of those scores. obv still hoping for s win tho.
