Over on the celtic pages the plastic pitch debate is ongoing. To be fair on this one I couldn't agree more. there's simply no place for them in top division football. Player safety and the advantage it gives the home team are two of the hot topics. Again I agree. The one i most agree with though is the quality of the game to watch. If we are serious about selling our product it needs to be entertaining. There is nothing entertaining about watching games on these pitches. It's a hard old slog. Maybe showing more games from ibrox and celtic park than just the old firm games? Specifically avoiding showing games with these pitches until they change to grass.

Risk of injury, the spectacle I agree with. Unfair advantage i wouldn't say. Us and the smellys budget blows these teams out the water, any advantage they can think of its our job to deal with it.

08 Oct 2019 05:48:28
Jmaster, I wouldn't know because i'm not interested in their pages or take anything to do with them. Its all about us, as far as i'm concerned and don't be like them, who are continually obsessed with us and constantly troll our pages. They've got an illness called RANGERSITIS!
That's it in a nutshell mate!

SGL I get what you're saying but I enjoy when we are doing well and they start to foam at the mouth. Twitter brings me great amusement as well se of them are deranged. The issue of plastic pitches was regularly discussed on here as well last season, it's something that most fans of all clubs dislike (other than the sides utilising them) .

When were we last top of the league? My memory fails me.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Oct 2019 11:22:46
last December when we won against hearts for 3 days! all that matters is that we are there at the end of the season.

07 Oct 2019 11:45:58
December 2018, although only for a day or something.

07 Oct 2019 14:32:24
Last December, then complacency set in and we lost the league in January.

07 Oct 2019 16:02:02
Guys, if we keep the same momentum going away from home as we at home, we will do it, I'm sure of it. We can't be afraid of any team in our league, let them worry about us.

07 Oct 2019 16:21:52
Respect All Fear None.

07 Oct 2019 17:09:45
Respect none, fear none.

Fixed that for you bankie 👍.

08 Oct 2019 12:22:45
The games that gives me concern are against Motherwell. ok we have them at home first and should beat them. But they have a strong physical team with some skill full players in their team. I think their bubble might burst before we play them away.

They are another team that has the potential to take points from the unwashed home and away.

We have scored four goals in a game three times.
We have scored five goals in a game twice.
We have scored six goals in a game twice.
We have have scored 52 goals by early October.
Why the heck have we not signed Shankland? 🤣🤣🤣.

Agree7 Disagree0

07 Oct 2019 12:44:35
daisy, Morelos and Defoe have scored more goals between them than the rest of the team put together, if anything happens to one or God forbid both of them then there is always room for another goal scorer.

07 Oct 2019 14:29:09
Aye Jyf, room in the stand for Shankland.

07 Oct 2019 16:13:52
Souness that's not the point. Could have got him on a free and loaned him out for a season. He's a goal scorer and I don't agree a Nicky Clarke. And a Rangers fan.

07 Oct 2019 16:55:52
If the price is right I would bite dundees hand off for him. Morelos will be off soon, although we have said that for awhile, defoe is ageing. Shankland should be brought in. Nicky Clark had one good season and we bought him. Shankland had an insane season last year, 61 app 50 goals, and so far this season its 8 app 13 goals. We had a chance on a free and let it go. He is not gona cost millions. But we need something for next year. Get him in Jan and send him back to Utd for the rest of the season. How many championship players get called up to scotland squad, shows how poor we are in that department but he is worth the chance.

07 Oct 2019 18:32:33
fintyfint, Morelos, a star striker, will be off soon and you'd replace him with Shankland? Have you ever actually watched football? It's like saying let's replace Laudrup with David Templeton! Absurd!

07 Oct 2019 20:16:41
We need better than shankland, we have players like docherty murphy etc who will be nothing more than bit part cameo players due the quality we have. We are not raising the bar with players like shankland. 👍.

08 Oct 2019 09:15:08
If Murphy can get back to the fitness/ form he showed before he got injured, he'll have a part to play this season.

08 Oct 2019 11:31:00
Correct mrgrumpy, it’s a squad game.

06 Oct 2019 22:25:21
What do you guys think of the union bears new song? I know they split opinion on here and I agree to a certain extent that they can give us a bad name but listening to the song today made me think that they certainly help with the atmosphere at Ibrox and it also looks like they’re making a conscious effort to stop singing the offensive songs by coming up with more family friendly stuff. Here is the lyrics if you don’t know it -
Follow follow Glasgow Rangers follow follow all the way. 54 times the kings of Scotland the most in football history. We’ve got the battle fever on, fight till the day in done, the spirit of bill Struth it carries on!

Agree2 Disagree0

07 Oct 2019 07:33:25
Think its pretty crap tbh.

07 Oct 2019 08:00:41
Rather it was crap than have sectarian singing.

07 Oct 2019 11:33:26
Agree g4rry.

07 Oct 2019 12:11:36
Is this the song for barasic? I like it, quite catchy, although I have heard alternative lyrics instead of 'he comes and goes' 👍.

06 Oct 2019 20:29:57
So glad that I was one of the few slways on defending big borna right from the very start, was fed up saying he needed a consistent run of games to find his form. Absolute rolls Royce of a full back and glad he's shutting up the doubters that said halliday was our best left back and wanted the guy sold.

Agree8 Disagree0

06 Oct 2019 20:57:36
He had consistent run of games last year FB, he just needed over a year to find his heart👍.

07 Oct 2019 00:30:26
He never got a consistent run last year. Started great got a few niggles and was in and out after that. Too many were wanting him sold because nobody has any patience regarding our players 👍.

07 Oct 2019 10:10:11
Borna has made me eat humble pie and I am over the moon to say he has made me look stupid. Hope he keeps it up. Just knew when he stepped up that he was scoring yesterday. What a turn around for the bear!

07 Oct 2019 10:40:03
He played plenty of games, just never looked interested👍.

07 Oct 2019 10:49:53
He was playing well for croatia but poor for us, nothing to do with a run of games for us. 👍 he had to find the heart to adjust👍.

07 Oct 2019 11:04:21
Barasic has really improved. I was one of the ones who'd have happily seen him sold, but he's beginning to show he really has quality. I also rated Halliday over him, but stand by my opinion of him. He gets unfairly criticised, and if he'd put in as many half hearted performances as Barasic has to date, he's have been utterly slaughtered on here.

What I will say however is that we are a quarter into the season, and Barasic will only win me over when he becomes dependable, as opposed to guys on here drooling over him every time he does OK. When he wins 50/ 50's in old firm games and gives us 8/ 10's every week then he'll be worth the praise.

Word on Edmunson also. He has looked class whenever he's played. Great to have 4 good options at the back.

07 Oct 2019 12:13:36
He has improved, that left peg of his is something else. I knew he was scoring that free kick. We are now seeing why he plays for croatia👍.

07 Oct 2019 14:30:45
Papac II.

06 Oct 2019 20:12:05
Think stewart is going to turn out to be a great wee player for us.

Agree7 Disagree0

06 Oct 2019 21:37:48
Always said he was a good player.

07 Oct 2019 07:34:33
Nn10 don't think he will get a lot of game time once kent and jones are back.

07 Oct 2019 12:12:23
Hes a different player to them two, to me he seems the natural replacement for arfeild if he's needing a rest or is injured.

07 Oct 2019 13:08:08
Kent and Jones are left wingers along with Barker. Think Stewart on the right Kent on the left, with Jones, Barker and Ohno on the bench.

07 Oct 2019 16:06:55
One day some on here will work out it is a squad game.
Injuries, suspension form all happen.
Already we have seen injuries to Helander, Katic, Flanagan, Barisic, Jack, Jones, Kent, Arfield on inter a duty back late, Aribo .
Also hearing at corporate yesterday we will go back in forloan deal foden in January.

06 Oct 2019 20:11:22
Jermain Defoe, class on the park and absolute class off the park. The work this gentleman does for charities, especially for kids is exemplary. Tha wee girl who he gave his top and hat-trick ball to after the hamilton game today was a terrific gesture by an absolute thoroughbred of a guy.
Well done jermain! 👍👏.

Agree10 Disagree0

06 Oct 2019 20:47:01
Totally agree SGL! He’s a pro through and through and you can tell he looks after himself and in all honesty I think we could get another two years out of him! I’m also in the thinking that both him and Alfie could hit 30 goals apiece this season.

06 Oct 2019 20:52:37
Completely agree SGL. Real nice human being. i'm convinced that he is mentoring buffalo. Maybe just wishful thinking as Fredo appears to have sorted his temper out.

06 Oct 2019 21:05:25
Part of the reason why we are seeing a new morelos👍.

06 Oct 2019 21:07:35
I agree blackwoodbear. Football critics always used to say that if your 2 strikers scored 50 goals between them in a season, that would more than likely win their team the league. Already morelos and defoe have 26 goals between them, with only a quarter of the season gone.
Incredible performance by our 2 class striker's, so far! Defoe is without a doubt the most natural instinctive finisher in scottish football and morelos is learning all his good habits from him. Morelos has improved his temperament and his 1 on 1 finishes, which is most definitely working beside and learning from jermain defoe.

06 Oct 2019 21:20:08
Said the same today coop to the guy next to me, when your 2nd striker is scoring a hattrick and banging them in your team is doing well👍.

06 Oct 2019 21:38:45
25+ goals between morelos and defoe and we're at the start of October. 50+ goals between them and the league would be within our grasp.

07 Oct 2019 11:09:53
SGL Defoe kept the match ball, wish people could report on here correctly.
