Like a lot of us in the copland road stand today, we thought rangers performance was flat in the 1st half and much more at it, in the 2nd half! We played well in the 2nd half against hearts, who incidentally are a poor team! We played fast with high tempo energy in the 2nd half, with zip and a cutting edge to our play! Thought 2-1 absolutely flattered hearts to be honest! Thought candeias, murphy, cummings, holt all played well and the effort was clear, which of course it should be with any player wearing the famous rangers shirt! I've left graham dorrans to the last here as he had a terrific 2nd half for us! Dozza covered a lot of ground and is getting fitter! He dominated the midfield today and everything came through him! His passing was crisp and precise! He hardly wasted a ball today and was my MOTM! In the 2nd half it was arguably dozza's best dominant performance for us, since he signed! what's other bears take on this?

Today was best summoned up by the banners displayed by a section of our support. A win against a quite shocking Hearts side changes nothing. Where was all this effort last week? One thing playing better against a rotten team but another doing it against better sides. Let’s see how good the players you mentioned are next week. We only beat the worst team in the top 6 today and even then we made it tense for ourselves

22 Apr 2018 19:01:49
I thought Dorrans was a cut above every player today showed his class. I think Candeas got it for his goal and assist.

22 Apr 2018 19:03:29
I thought Candeias was best player on the pitch poor first half bit better in second poor crowd and silent take heed the board the natives are restless

22 Apr 2018 19:04:34
Supercoop, Must agree. The 1st half I think the players were afraid to make a mistake and played the safe game. Second half they came out with a bit of belief which must have came from the dressing room at half time. Dorrans IMO was MOTM. Windass again was posted missing, when he was in the game his decision making was poor. I've always thought we get into great positions down the wings but our delivery into the box from there and from corners is often poor. Personally I would have had Goss on and drop Windass, play Dorrans further up. Alnwick looked nervous, get Wes back asap. that's the minimum we expect every minute of every game, all visiting teams should be going home with a scelped arse.

22 Apr 2018 20:12:46
Thought Candeias was motm but Dorrans had great game. Wee Holt played well as well.

22 Apr 2018 20:36:42
Let’s hope we are all as lavish in our praise of these players this time next week.

22 Apr 2018 20:42:59
Aye we get it. The 2nd half. 5 times you said it

22 Apr 2018 22:42:26
ArthurD, you don't need to tell me how bad we were against them last week! Each game has to have an honest assessment and see it for what it was! Of course the least we bears should expect is effort against them next week and high pressing! Honour where honour is due and credit to the manager and players today, especially 2nd half! You should try it my friend! SHARPSHOOTERSPOM, git a life instead of obsessive scrutiniseation mate! We were at it in the 2nd half (6
times) my friend, not that i'm counting, honest! Some folk, honestly!

23 Apr 2018 08:36:48
TjBb. Totally agree about Windass. Contribution was poor AGAIN. summed him up when late in 2nd half should have passed to Cummings but no went for glory and shot staight at keeper.
Not a team player.! #

22 Apr 2018 18:02:00
I was speaking to a member of Motherwell coaching staff about the big CB kipre I think unsure of spelling. Think he would be a great signing for us only 21 and getting better all the time. Only saw him at the semi final and looks good. Never lost a header all game and strong in the tackle. Would like to see him and maybe Kyle Bartley or in dream world Grant Hanley.

Agree3 Disagree6

22 Apr 2018 18:06:49
In your dreams we sign Hanley? Hate you see your nightmares😂

22 Apr 2018 18:20:39
Hanley your dream centre half OMG

22 Apr 2018 18:21:47
Hanley. Dream signing? You been on the sauce? Cart horse imo.

22 Apr 2018 18:31:09
Hanley is shocking no better than Martin I wouldn't mind kipri tho

22 Apr 2018 18:48:52
Went for 6 million. We are no longer I in that market. Who was last player to cost us over 6 million

22 Apr 2018 18:50:18
Dream Venter half would be way better calibre. I grew up watching butcher but we are not the same rangers. Won't be that rangers without a new owner

22 Apr 2018 18:54:00
Just to clarify Hanley is not dream player just out our price range

22 Apr 2018 19:08:00
We'll never be that Rangers again. The footballing world has changed and we've been left behind. That days of us signing the England captain will never return

22 Apr 2018 19:23:04
Totally agree. Need to shop smart follow Celtic example with likes of wanyama van dyke buy cheap let them show what they can do and sell for good momey with a sell on clause. Need to protect youth better to. I know we can't compete financially with English pl club's but first team football is a key to keeping the youngsters

22 Apr 2018 19:45:59
I read somewhere that man city and Norwich were keeping tabs on Barjonas. You would think if he is good enough for Man City to be interested he should be at the very least on our bench. This is going to be another good boy we will lose cause he's not getting a chance.

22 Apr 2018 19:55:03
Guys we have just let future Scotland and currently the best central defender at Ibrox leave the club because we would not offer him a first team wage.

22 Apr 2018 20:13:49
Bankie, behave yourself! David Bates will NEVER be a future Scotland Captain! He will end up another Kirk Broadfoot, ie limited ability!

22 Apr 2018 20:45:06
Grant Hanley makes Russel Martin look like Madini

22 Apr 2018 22:09:05
Who TF is Madini - are you on about the great Madini that works in Blackpool as an escape artist.

22 Apr 2018 17:43:04
Couldn't make the game today but listened on BBC.

How many times did they go on about our fans getting on the teams back after 10 mins of poor play?

Teams set up to nullify our play knowing tne the Ibrox fans will start booing which will put more pressure on the team.

Whether the players are good enough or not it does not help when our own fans are on their case. support the team to the end no matter the score on the pitch.

Agree4 Disagree13

22 Apr 2018 17:57:44
I’m assuming that the disagrees mean that you will boo the team even if it makes us play badly?

In other words, you don't actually care if we will or not so long as you can have your say.

I’ve said it before, supporters support the team through thick and thin especially on the pitch. The fans can be the extra man that we need when things are tough. we don’t need to be a man down because the fans are working against the players

23 Apr 2018 21:17:58
I disagree because I was at the game and there was no booing.

I'm sure there would have been if hearts had taken lead, but after a disgraceful performance like last week they'd be within their rights to vent.

I do believe in general we are quick to turn, but it's born from frustration and expectations.

Hopefully, this is the last season of the slow road back, starting with a credible manager.

22 Apr 2018 17:42:26
I find it funny how people use this page just to doubt any rumours that's posted I think this is a rumours site if I'm not mistaken, I enjoy reading the posts and hope for great signings I think we have enough hassle from Celtic fans hijackking our page just to cause sh**.

When Morelos arrived he looked like a goal hungry poacher in tandem with Miller. Since Murty took the reigns he’s been asked to do a lot more, and while he’s better all round than Cummings his form and confidence have really suffered from this.
Watching him warm up today not only highlighted his poor morale and attitude but the fact he was Billy no mates suggests he doesn’t have any friends in the dressing room and perhaps they’ve taken Doc’s side on that particular set to.
Every striker misses sitters, Cummings, McCoist etc it’s all about how they respond, and earlier in the season he was missing easy ones but still getting there to score the harder ones.
It’s somewhat stereotypical but South Americans/ Latins are renowned for their petulance/ temperament. It’s also unfortunate that even when he’s happy he looks like a bulldog chewing a wasp.
Ultimately I think he’ll be sold in the summer but I think we’ll be lucky to get £5m+ for him.

Agree2 Disagree8

22 Apr 2018 17:50:40
I don't think they'll be any bids for him in the summer

22 Apr 2018 18:19:40
Fair enough Mike, if we ignore my last sentence would anyone agree?

22 Apr 2018 20:07:36
Aye big marv. I like morelos if he could finish he'd be a real asset. Guy puts a great shift in up there on his own holding u up he needs a fin isherwood in beside him

22 Apr 2018 21:57:00
He’s really low on confidence at the minute. I agree he would suit playing with Cummings as a two. Windass as impact sub since he only turns up for 10mins a game anyway.

22 Apr 2018 16:46:27
Don't know if De Boer is the right man for us, think he is to much Mr nice guy, we need a manager with passion that will tell the players exactly what he thinks, a Bilic, Warnock type.

Agree7 Disagree9

22 Apr 2018 17:02:43
Watched cardiff city last night grind out a result great fighting spirit in the team would take warnock as our next manager

22 Apr 2018 17:08:25
70 year old neil Warnock is the right man to take us forward?

22 Apr 2018 17:11:25
Watched an interview with Zaha today. When asked about de Boer he said he didn't think he had the players to play the way he wanted to at Palace. Much as I like dB I think he'd have the same problem with us.

22 Apr 2018 17:15:36
Gus, De Boer a nice guy as a Manager based on?

22 Apr 2018 17:45:46
I simply can't get my head around anyone wanting DeBoer as our next manager, what is the fascination? Murty is inexperienced but is also hungry. Can we afford to let him go? Why don't we give him a budget? He is passionate and determined and could be the answer. I truly think he'll come good.

22 Apr 2018 17:51:24
Last week was proof that Murty is the wrong man for the job

22 Apr 2018 19:22:38
Mikeger, there's no getting away from our poor performance last week but was Murty totally to blame? Tell me one player who played for the jersey. Murty is a novice whos been thrown into the deep end but i firmly believe he will come good. I also believe we should stay with a british manager who understands our style of play.

22 Apr 2018 20:23:26
I will hand back my season ticket if Warnock is appointed, he is an appalling person

22 Apr 2018 16:30:35
The most important thing today was 3 points and we got that

Agree9 Disagree3

22 Apr 2018 17:02:01
This virtually guarantee 4th place

Only issue is if well win cup. Although I believe we will win at least two more games and finish 2nd

22 Apr 2018 16:06:46
After last week performance and the carry on with miller / Wallace I wasn’t surprised the atmosphere was like that, even the blue corner weren’t singing think most fans we sending a message to the board that this season has just not been good from top to bottom at the club.

Agree9 Disagree2

22 Apr 2018 16:50:57
The Union Bears had a silent protest and rightly so. The fans are treated with utter contempt by this board.

22 Apr 2018 17:04:37
Definately ldm17 think it's about time they were honest about the plan to get us the mess were in

22 Apr 2018 17:18:22
Don’t disagree mate. I won't be renewing my ST until I know who the new Manager is.

22 Apr 2018 18:18:26
I already said the same further up the page mate mine and my wee boys are not getting renewed chucked money blindly at it for too long. Our fans have backed the club phenomenal well we deserve so much better

22 Apr 2018 15:39:15
Does anyone know where foderingham and Bruno were today? . they were on the bench

Agree0 Disagree4

22 Apr 2018 15:45:19
JCgers, they were both injured.

22 Apr 2018 15:50:45
Can somebody tell me why there was no atmosphere at the game to day plus good to see Alnwick get a start job done ✅

22 Apr 2018 16:19:31
Silent protest. But the board won't care unless attendances fall. We can pay to go every week to do a silent process but all they will hear is £££s.

22 Apr 2018 16:26:39
Union bears protest against the board.

22 Apr 2018 16:41:17
Someone want to explain how this agree/ disagree thing works? I made a comment as to Fod and Alves being injured, and it gets 3 disagrees? Do people know better then?

22 Apr 2018 16:52:13
Sir Struth, Murty said everyone was fit on Friday. Unless they trained and got injured yesterday?

22 Apr 2018 17:11:07
Don't worry about the agree/ disagree buttons people use them as like/ dislike buttons as well

22 Apr 2018 15:15:55
Does everyone think that cardoso is that bad that we are playing a right back and a dcm in there . Martin is awfull at centre half. Mcrorie also struggling . I personally think he is better than Martin

Agree7 Disagree3

22 Apr 2018 15:27:09
I prefer Cardoso to Martin

22 Apr 2018 15:59:48
Wish we would play McCrorie in midfield although don’t suppose that that was an option today if Alves was injured. I think he would do a good job next week in the midfield.

22 Apr 2018 16:14:53
We could have played mccrorie in there and played cardoso at centre half.
