Hands up anyone on here who would have made those substitutions to turn things round! Changing the left back was not a priority yesterday and bringing a player on for his first game this year was hardly tactical genius.
On a plus it was Davis' best game since he came back and it was worth the admission money alone to be present and witness broadfoots save of the season.
P. S. hope gerrard gives a good presser to keep most on here happy!

Thought Davis was dreadful yesterday and looks a shadow of the player he was first time around. He pulled out of tackles and had a great chance second half and chose to play it across goal to no one.

Also think Andy Halliday was injured. I saw him speaking to the bench just before half time.

17 Mar 2019 10:56:32
No one would have. No one would have started coulibally either. Mcrorie all day long. Really want Gerard to succeed but I'm lost at the moment with a lot of his thinking.

17 Mar 2019 11:12:52
According to reports Coulbaly won’t be there next season so why is he anywhere near the team. No point playing loan players who won’t be there next season.

17 Mar 2019 12:03:41
Can't understand why mcrorie has found himself back on bench.

17 Mar 2019 12:40:10
The ball hit broadfoot on the back, nowhere near his hands👍.

17 Mar 2019 12:59:42
Posted that in reply last night coldo. Folk looking for excuses as usual it was never a pen.

17 Mar 2019 13:01:46
Grezda done nothing when he came on, I know he's just back from injury but he doesn't look anywhere near what we need. Barasic to be fair made some great overlaps and put a few good balls in but again that was when we went 442.👍.

17 Mar 2019 14:16:08
Davis was absolutely WOEFUL. 12 stray pases then I stopped counted. He was a GREAT player. He’s DONE.

17 Mar 2019 08:09:20
After going to the game yesterday. Kilmarnock has one chance through a goal keeping and defensive error and took it .

We need to understand Kilmarnock are a club if they get a point against Rangers at Ibrox that is like them winning a cup final .

What I'm more worried about is the lack of players we have who have the balls to simply run at a player, take there man on, travel with the ball, beat a man .

The only good thing about yesterday was that the sheep are as equally rotten as we are .

I don't know if it's there but if it is in my opinion money should be spent on quality not quantity. A creative midfielder would be top of my shopping list as all our midfielders pretty much do the same job . Morelos is a talent no doubt but we are far too reliant on him and he might not be there next year so another quality striker . Centrehalf and a winger . Candieas works hard but that's not enough to inconsistent for me . That's four quality players if the money is there .

I've played in teams if you put three or four good players in an average team it gives players around them firstly confidence and gets the best out of guys who are not as gifted playing along side good players .

You need to want it as well ( success ) that isn't something you can teach but for success you need belief. Our manager can't strip Tavernier of the armband at this point in the season would be crazy if a bid comes in I would sell him having said that who do you give the armband too because I'm struggling . Others Rangers men will say McGregor but personally I like my captains to be outfield players .

This is long winded I'm just frustrated with another season . Had a conversation with my dad and said all the successful teams he remembers had a partnership upfront I said to him it's not really the done thing anymore he asked why? Which I thought was a fair question.

I've always wondered how Hardie would have fared up front alongside Morelos. I guess we'll never know now.

17 Mar 2019 08:49:07
Well what I will say if we don’t have a lot of money too spend on quality I was talking about your going to have to tap into your youth set up . The coaching staff see these boys at least on a weekly basis I’d imagine.

You do need to be good enough but you need to be giving and opportunity. To me that’s not coming off the bench with 7mins to play . It’s telling boys like your McCroires and Hardies you will start the next two games make sure I can’t drop you after that .

17 Mar 2019 08:57:39
Spend spend spend. We need to accept we can’t afford quality players, well not established quality. Defoe and Davis are finished that why their here see out their days at a big club.
The club needs to invest heavily in young hungry players W they had that chance coming up through the league s and blew it big time again wasting money on a lot of crap and by their best players.
Chasing Celtic is not helping the youth policy. Mcrorie bench Docherty loaned Hardie loaned just a few examples of players who should be the backbone of what the club is aiming to achieve. a team full off who will fight for the shirt.

17 Mar 2019 15:58:29
Another Bear McCrorie was OUTSTANDING for 4/ 5 games and got cast aside for nothing!

17 Mar 2019 17:58:31
I agree with you L17 he had an absolute blunder against them and hasn’t played sins after Gerrard sayingbrhis boys going to be a future captain? Strange one for me but he changed the time the next game against Kilmarnock to accommodate Defoe and Davis . What is it they say don’t change a winning team and don’t fix what not broken?

17 Mar 2019 07:42:56
Thinking back from how well we played europa league to now is just embarrassing. Say what you want give Halliday Davis and Lafferty starting 11 every match there the only guys that know what it is to put that shirt on and play for that team. Yes not the greatest of players and not as young as they use to be but they knock there pan in. It’s disappointing to see how good we are and sometimes how rubbish we play.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Mar 2019 11:15:25
Davis is done, Halliday hasn’t the sufficient quality of you want to challenge Celtic and Lafferty has shown nothing however maybe a run of games might help him.

17 Mar 2019 03:34:06
was reading on bbc that murphy might be back before the end but dorrans is still out. i thought dorrans would be a player for us but it doesn't look like he will be fit enough to contribute before his contrct runs out. only one year left and likely won't start the season right away. frustrating that we've had too many broken players on wages the past few seasons.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Mar 2019 07:18:30
Murphy is busting a gut apparently but I think Dorrans is maybe finished. I hope not butvuts a long time out the game.

17 Mar 2019 08:00:03
This is what happens when you shop at Poundland. The players you can afford are usually sub par or have defects.

17 Mar 2019 08:34:37
How much are things in Poundland?

17 Mar 2019 11:16:25
Don’t knock Poundland you can get some great deals there.

17 Mar 2019 13:03:25
Is that where you go to buy your Tena Ladies Rodgers?

16 Mar 2019 18:01:19
Absolute awful performance. I can't understand why Gerard who said himself that McCrorie is a future captain yet refuses to play him. Nice words won't do his confidence any good. Also, what is it with Gerard during the games? Gone is the animation he showed on the touch line early in the season, he now stands with his hands in his pocket staring at the ground.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 18:31:22
But we gained a point and that is a step in the right direction, its progress, night and day from last season. Kamara will make us millions. If celtic lose tomorrow then we will be a point closer to them and if they lose 3 games and we win 3 games we will top of the league. When ian durrant comes back from his loan spell at fleetwood we will be much stronger. The ref was shocking today he should have sent the killie players off because they were a bit too rough. The sfa and its members made it snow and that's just no fair, making us play in that weather is cheating. The pitch aswell wasn't the best I thought the grass was a bit too green. Anyway a draw is progress, we will learn from this and go again next week😩🔫😭👍.

16 Mar 2019 18:46:04
Have you heard Gerard interview after game. Am I missing something. Blaming Kilmarnock for repeated fouling and wasting time. He can't fault players. Not far off being a good performance. Is he serious. Dreadfull performance. Coulibally . Tavanier Candeias kamara halliday goldson. All dreadfull . Subs not much better. Spot on with your analysts of Gerard . Gone is him standing at the side going nuts. Not a word for months. Just standing.

16 Mar 2019 19:00:01
Yes we were very poor, for my life I don't understand the team choice, having said that maybe SG has Celts on his mind and Davis was decent. Really disappointed but I'll be back for more. Coldo I know you are a long time poster here but I can't remember any optimistic post from you maybe I have a bad memory. BTW this is Bluepete had to change my handle.

16 Mar 2019 20:07:21
Must be a bad memory bluepete👍.

16 Mar 2019 20:56:13
Gerrard needs to have a long hard look at himself blaming the ref and kilmarnock players for hard tackles is just pathetic.
The performances have been terrible recently no fight no energy no creativity he talks about adding leaders maybe he should look to start been a leader himself like the beginning of season it needs to come from the manager first.
Right now gerrard and the team look like they have giving up on this season and just going threw the motions.
I just hope this summer recruitment is a lot better and he learns to start playing his best players.

16 Mar 2019 22:47:37
I hope the romours bout us signing shinnie are true, because he's a leader and we're crying out for a proper captain, tav ain't a leader and ain't a defender, and Gerrard needs specs if he thinks coulibaly is better than Mcrorie.

17 Mar 2019 08:33:24
Iain Durrant and fleetwood?

17 Mar 2019 09:28:02
He's taking the urine. !

17 Mar 2019 12:42:57
Just a few of the things I have read on here lately gannet 👍😥.

16 Mar 2019 17:19:42
The first half was awful, no service no shot lots of lazy possession. Candeias was horrible again today. Coulibaly was AWOL as well. How McCrorie can't get into that midfield ahead of Davis and Coulibaly is beyond me. Davis did play better today than his previous performances. Grezda started cold but really warmed up towards the end. What I liked about him in this game was that he pressed to recover the ball immediately after losing a ball, unlike Candeias and he also tried to use guile to beat his man vs trying to out run the defender, unlike Candeias. Broadfoot with another save on Morelos today, don't think it was two handed though just one hand so no penalty. Why did Goldson come up so high on that goal and McGregor lost his head. There was nothing if he stays back and let Katic run the player down. Well done for them to get back into the match. Did SG get the formation change right with the right personnel in the second half when they went 442 with Defoe. It looked like it. Missed two empty nets there. that's as positive. The last three weeks our midfield has starved Morelos of the ball and it has showed in the shot on goal. I would like to get more of OUR players on the field in the coming weeks. Figure out the squad for next season.

Agree3 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 17:14:22
Not one person I have spoken too at game would have picked a midfield of kamara coulibaly and Davis. Nearly all inc myself would not have started Candeias after his recent performances. I know we are not football managers but we are only stating we we have watched recently and we are not wrong. Mr gerard needs to stop trusting players hoping it comes good. Get them benched or dropped out the squad . Scynnered does not even come close.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 17:38:08
You missed out tavenier captain fantastic not.

18 Mar 2019 16:02:09
Have you thought about sending your cv to our board? Might just be the change that we need - not!

16 Mar 2019 17:08:34
Another point in our challenge for title 😭
When was the last time we won? 😭🇬🇧.

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 16:59:53
Well hopefully after the first 45 mins today all you guys backing how great Halliday and Candeia, can see what eneryone else sees and the debate is well hopefully put to bed. They were shocking and I mean shocking, we looked far better with Barisic and Grezda when Gerrard hailed them off at halftime.

Agree3 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 17:17:10
How come he happily subbed them 2 off captain tav stays on every game. He isn't good enough at present get a game .

16 Mar 2019 17:17:41
Being saying that for a while Candeias is rotten and isn’t the sort of player needed to challenge.

16 Mar 2019 18:31:13
Actually thought candeias was hiding today, only wants the ball in easy situations never shows in tight areas suppose that's what you get with a journeyman. Tavernier I've noticed hangs onto ball to long until he's either lost it or opposition have got back into position attack is then over. can't see coulibally being target in the summer either.

16 Mar 2019 18:46:28
Halliday was injured.

16 Mar 2019 19:40:23
Magregor was to blame for the goal yet hardly a mention in the posts. I've seen almost every player getting it in the neck but no mention of Magregors mistake. Some of the fans can't wait for Tav to mess up but other players get off Scot free.

17 Mar 2019 07:42:24
Spot on jaws, mcgregor was to blame for their goal, I had a unfortunately great view of it, as i sit in the copland.

16 Mar 2019 16:16:02
Laughing stock Wat a brass kneck av got to be at this game.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 17:06:23
Tav has got to be dropped, did nothing right . I remember Gerrard saying he was going to make Ibrox a fortress again. When's this happening?

16 Mar 2019 18:17:14
Nothing? Who set up Morelos for the goal?

16 Mar 2019 19:46:48
Yip, morelos made his own goal today. Thought alfredo was the best rangers player today, who got absolutely no service whatsoever. I thought morelos played well, especially in the 2nd half.

16 Mar 2019 20:14:27
I thought we looked much better when we went 442. Thought davis looked like his old self ( credit where its due) . Its was obvious that our shape wasn't working after 20mins yet gerrard waited until the 75th min or there abouts to change it to 442, far too late again. 👍.

16 Mar 2019 20:17:25
Also what a difference with katic coming out from the back, distribution is much better than worral. No more running to the halfway line and then passing it back. 👍.

17 Mar 2019 08:24:09
Agree Coldo, Katic while being rough round the edges has plenty time to develop but carries 2 attributes that the others don’t, an ability to bring the ball out of defence and charge forward which disrupts these well organised teams who are compact and narrow as they don’t have a man to pick him up and it creates space for others when he does it. Secondly he carries as big a goal threat at set pieces as anyone in that team, from limited game time I think he has a couple. Worrall and Goldson I can remember a goal each from having played the majority of games, not really good enough when we are needing a goal in a close game. Also thought we were much better with 4-4-2. If Gerrard is to persist with 4-3-3 then the wingers really need replaced with inside forwards who can support Morelos and chip in with far more goals, the width must come from our full backs and a guy like McCrorie in midfield can cover them.

17 Mar 2019 18:25:38
What u all think, re Morelos being sighted re altercation with broadfoot.
