Gio Van B, in talks to take over from Gerrard in summer.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Feb 2019 20:40:37

18 Feb 2019 21:09:38
WOW I really have now words.

18 Feb 2019 21:48:37
Gerrard is without doubt the man to lead glasgow rangers, next season and beyond!

18 Feb 2019 21:58:18
Major what a lot of rubbish.

18 Feb 2019 22:14:33
No he's not.

19 Feb 2019 02:19:58
When Summer 2025?

19 Feb 2019 11:20:38
Shakes head with smug face n says naw hes no.

19 Feb 2019 15:34:22
He will 100% get next season and so he should, however if he wins nothing next year he's GONE!

19 Feb 2019 17:38:01
Yer arse is nipping mate.

19 Feb 2019 23:31:31
This summer he needs to try and move those that don't give 100% and bring in three or four winners and leaders. Right now we are lacking leadership on the park and too many of those signed, (on the cheap), are not winners. We need quality players with a winning mentality that are in their prime!

20 Feb 2019 06:24:39
Gerrard needs to sign players who are not injury prone and investigate why so many of current squad are constantly getting injured Jack grezda arfield barasic every other week.

20 Feb 2019 07:46:06
Spending money is not just the answer. SG spent about 12m. He's bought utter dross! 15 players and 4 are good. Gregg's, Kent, Arfield and goldson. Too many duds bought and loanees. Similar MF being played, wrong formations. I could go on. Yes he's learning but as we know he won't get time.

21 Feb 2019 08:25:09
Hes also improved the players who were already here, Alfredo is miles better and Gerrard backed him from day 1. Halliday should have been let go but now hes totally transformed my own personal opinion of him to the point where hes possibly the best Left back at the club.
Katic is also a good signing, Barisic the jurys still our but still far better than Wallace IMO.
Coulibaly has played some great stuff but personal tradegy and injury affected his performances as hes a young guy living abroad but hes still not been a bad signing.
Davis and Defoe still havent even started 5 games each yet so how you can say these are utter dross is alarming.
Do your report on the signings come the END of the season mate.

04 Mar 2019 11:13:14
LDM, in the relatively unusual instance SG wins hee haw next season don't believe even this indicator of end of tenure. His time here is not a short term project. Its going to take three years to get Gers back firmly on top and genuinely competing with best in Europe. If we bomb badly next season I'll cry buckets but still support SG playing strategy 100%.

16 Feb 2019 23:45:02
The wave of emotion that clouded over Ibrox today was almost tangible. From optimism to hope, then frustration to anger and finally despair. Very poor display with only Candelas, Kent, Kamara and Fodringham getting pass marks. The sterile, uncreative displays have been evident all season- from the home game against UFA to today's game, with a few notable exceptions, and when Morelos is not there to bully opposition defenders and create opportunities from nothing (and to a lesser degree Arfield who's looking for the loose balls usually created by Morelos efforts) then we are a very ordinary team with a defensively minded midfield.

Hope I'm wrong but Davis and Defoe look finished to me and Barasic, Middleton, Grezda and a few others don't appear to be able to cope with a vocal 50000 Rangers crowd where 2 bad passes means the crowd on your back - and consequently due to a lack of confidence they stop make Ng runs, play the easy ball-, usually backwards or sideways and generally don't get involved in the game.

Agree10 Disagree0

17 Feb 2019 08:59:17
Very good post LB. I agree with what you said except Middleton . I think he has potential. SG signings have been very poor to say the least. He's playing the same formation he plays with Morelos in the team. Defoe is not that type of player and never will be. A blind man can see that. He has been backed and been given money. SG is out his depth and is clueless with tactics. Honestly he won't take us forward. Chops and changes the team and plays people who don't deserve to be there. Worrall and barasic are bombscares. I also stated that McCrorie is not ready for the first team. Defoe and Davis are poor signings. Good in there day but not now. I know we can't keep changing managers but SG should never have got the job to begin with. We should have hired and still have a chance to get Stevie Clarke. I want SG to do well but the bottom line is he doesn't have it as a manager at this level.

17 Feb 2019 09:32:55
Well if candeias latest performance is deemed passable we have let our expectations drop like a lead balloon.

17 Feb 2019 09:33:23
Get a grip of yourselves.

17 Feb 2019 12:20:01
Care to explain what Candaeis did to earn pass marks.
If running about at full pelt for 80 minutes warrants pass marks, then God help us.

17 Feb 2019 12:37:50
Candaes was dreadful yesterday, this squad not good enough o win league.

17 Feb 2019 14:23:05
Think some need to calm down a bit. Mccrorie has been decent this season. Middleton is just a young lad, barsic was poor yesterday but is our best left back. Candias is either great or piss poor, he's very inconsistent. I think we all got a bit carried away with signing Defoe and Davis. Yesterday performance wasn't good enough but we have improved on last season. I think we'll get 2nd spot.

17 Feb 2019 14:51:52
We're sitting clear in 2nd, had a good run in Europe and are still in Scottish cup but because we had a poor game against st jonstone (which we drew) As1974 thinks SG is sh*te and out of depth. SG has made mistakes and is still learning as a manager. Stevie Clarke is a good manager but am pretty sure he's a shoe-in for the c*ltic job when Brenda leaves for some midtable team in england.

17 Feb 2019 15:18:28
Is clear 2nd acceptable now?

17 Feb 2019 15:24:19
McCrorie isnt ready for the team STOPPED reading after that NONSENSE.

17 Feb 2019 15:30:11
Barisic is only our best left back on paper. Andy Halliday has produced far better and more gutsy displays on the pitch. He can also cross the ball.

17 Feb 2019 16:21:49
I want rangers to win the league but considering the mess of a season we had last season clear 2nd is an improvement. Halliday is a trier, no doubt about that but I think we'll have to agree to disagree if you think he's our best left back.

17 Feb 2019 16:27:24
Majority of you got a reality check yesterday we are not that good yet
Constantly building yourselves up for a fall team building takes time.

17 Feb 2019 16:34:44
I thought Candelas at least looked for the ball and made the runs. Bad miss I agree but in my opinion Barasic and a few others did not want the ball and when they got it they passed it back or sideways. Also, for the, Lafferty critics, he did more in the short time he was on than Defoe did all game.

17 Feb 2019 17:06:43
Agree re Lafferty. He has become an easy target
How many people genuinely thought SG would win league in first year, he inherited a shambles
My view is its draws like yesterday that is our Achilles heal.
Aberdeen Dundee Motherwell Hibs twice.

17 Feb 2019 17:55:20
SG is a young manager he will make mistakes, so does everybody who does anything, I believe 2 of his biggest mistakes have been trying to please the fans. i. e. Lafferty ( which I predicted and, breaks my heart to say it) Davis my fav. Rangers player, he's not even a shadow of his former self. I think his treatment of Katic has been poor too.
He brought in a lot of players and we have had some stellar performances but far too many lacklustre or downright abysmal like yesterday. Hopefully we can sign Kent (permanent) I think he has more chance of being struck twice in the same place than getting into the current Liverpool team. Perhaps the Scouse ED. could kindly give us his views. and 3 more ( of similar or better) and really press next year. The problem will be getting rid of the dead wood, thankfully 4 are loanees.

Still heads up and I'll be back for more next week.

{Ed001's Note - Kent is very unlikely to get a place in the first team next season, so I would think there is a chance of him leaving. Depends a lot on the lad himself, and if he is happy to continue to be farmed out or wants to go and prove himself away from Liverpool on a permanent basis. Will he want to walk away from the comfort and security of the money and support and take a chance?}

17 Feb 2019 18:17:05
@blueberry. We are a clear second? So your happy with second eh? No ambition man.
This is not a knee jerk reaction. Celtic aren't even that good and are a class above us. I am sick of hearing SG is a young manager and will learn. Well he's not learning. If he can't see Defoe can't play in that role like Morelos he's blind. Why is he playing Worral when he's a passenger. Look at his signings. Couibally, grezda, Worrall (loan) Ojaria, (spelling) . I could go on. How many have improved under our manager? Apart from Kent and shagger his signings are total pants! I want him to do well but wake up man. On wed go 4-4-2 with lafftery up top with Defoe. I am saying McCrorie isint ready for the first team. The boy should have gone out on loan. Look at our midfield. It's dire. Rangers fans take the blue tinted glasses off and stop kidding yourselfs on.

17 Feb 2019 18:40:41
Clear second and within 6 points of celtic and win cup for me would be decent season. I would be expecting to win league and at least 1 cup next year with group stages in Europe too. We are rebuilding under yet another manager. SG is young for a manager and still learning but I'm hoping we kick on next season. Think jones will make a difference with his more direct approach.

17 Feb 2019 18:49:01
@Belkshill lad. Win the league within a year? We will be lucky to win on Wednesday trust me. Morelos will be away in the summer. I honestly can't see a future with Gerrard as a manager. Hope he proves me wrong.

17 Feb 2019 18:51:15
No I am not happy with 2nd, as I explained in an earlier post. No I don't understand why Worrell gets a game ahead of katic. I also don't like signing so many loans. I also think SG takes to long to change things in a match. We beat c*ltic with (in your opinion) sh*te midfield. What we have lacked all season is consistency. We're much better of than we where last season. So we've improved.

17 Feb 2019 19:24:19
Magregor, Goldson, Katic, Arfeild, Kent are all decent signings Grezda, Worrall, Couibaly, Barisic, McAuley, Davis are all terrible signings I think the jurys still out on the likes of Lafferty, Defoe, Kamara, Flanagan, Pollster but its Gerrards tactics that worry me he expects to change the players and formation and still expects results top managers know there best 11 and start them or as close to as possible he seems like hes trying to accommodate some of these guys with his fingers crossed hoping they play well.

17 Feb 2019 19:24:50
Candelas was crap yesterday and I thought lafferty has got to play before Defoe he should not have dropped jack or Halliday or artfeild the guy kamara had a good game and last of all big Wes had a good game I know we will never surrender to them I watch the other mob today and for brown to be giving a yellow card with should have be a straight red is unreal.

18 Feb 2019 08:35:04
McCrorie isnt ready for the team What planet are you visiting earth from .

18 Feb 2019 15:29:12
So AS who u want as manager.

18 Feb 2019 15:33:25
Our right side is terrible and not good enough to win the league. Sure Candeias runs about and puts in a good shift but I would have thought that was a given when putting on a rangers shirt. Between him and Tav (who is not a leader of men) their delivery is appalling.
The amount of balls put in with a positive return is very poor.
Our left has far more potential and I'd be more than happy to stay with Kent and Barasic (who will only improve)
Wasn't overly keen on bringing Defoe or Davis back so I'm not at all surprised that they haven't settled well. The type of game we play we need a powerful striker. The only way Defoe will work is playing either 4-4-2 or a diamond and pushing threaded balls through.
Defense for me would be goldston and Katic. Middle of park would be jack and arfield and McCrorie as sitter.
Only other option is to try 3-5-2 again and that probably would suit us better than any other formation.
I did not expect to win league this season but we are making that shower of rubbish look good.

18 Feb 2019 21:30:21
AS, you're talking pish man. In defence of our manager.

The team that you're slating is the team that easily put celtic to the sword. The very same manager, Worrall mccrorie and candieas.

No manager gets every signing right and when you have to make 17 in and another batch out, your chances are hindered. I still think he has more success than failures.

Also, we dabble in loans, freebies and up to 瞿2m transfers. Again, chances of success diminish.

As to improvement of players, tav, halliday, mccrorie, Jack, candieas and morelos have all improved under his coaching. Whether they've improved enough we'll find out.

Consistency is our biggest problem and frustration, as they have proved they can hit a level. However, SG will learn who he can rely on week in week out.

19 Feb 2019 23:37:11
It is early days for Grezda and Barisic and some players take longer than others to settle in. I remain hopeful that both will become good players for us. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for Lafferty and Davis. Both are past their silly date and are fast becoming a liability! We will need to move players on in the summer and we will need to bring in three or four significantly better players than we have now. Assuming Morelos goes we will need to spend serious money on a replacement and hopefully Allen is already looking overseas for players that will seriously make a difference.

16 Feb 2019 21:23:37
Problem is too many changes and barmaid has lost his confidence, I think he has hit a lul after Gerrard was annoyed with him (quite rightly after being injured all the time) . If Gerrard is to succeed, time to get tough; get rid of Flanaghan, Dorrans etc. Also no one in the team created much. Only Morelos and Windass when he was at the box.

Agree3 Disagree0

17 Feb 2019 18:43:30
Dorrans would keep hold of at least for 6 months after fit. He has been injured most of the season but still turns up to every game. Would give him another chance as long as the legs are still there.

16 Feb 2019 21:15:02
Been saying it for sometime- without arfield we are extremely toothless.

Agree7 Disagree0

17 Feb 2019 07:51:23
spot on Gers09

I know we are a completely diff team without fredo but Arfieids influence is also huge.

SA sets the tempo for our pressing game and the number of assists he has and things he creates in final 1/ 3 is massive for us - he links middle to front really well for us which I had hoped Davo wld do but he looks miles off pace at the mo.

17 Feb 2019 15:40:03
Arfield should 100% be our captain. I don't know if you noticed but in the game with the 4 penalties when everyone was fighting over the ball like daft wee boys - including our "captain" - as soon as Arfield stepped in everyone shut up and did as they were told. Whether it was through fear or respect I have no idea, either will do me!

15 Feb 2019 21:54:41
Got this message from a fellow teddy

Peter Lovenkrands and Stephen Wright both leaving youth coaching roles at Ibrox

Anyone heard anything?

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Feb 2019 22:59:25
Read that lovenkrands is wanted by a team in Denmark I think.

15 Feb 2019 23:18:20
Well it Has been all over the papers about how he could be in line for a managerial job in Denmark.

15 Feb 2019 23:43:18
Wright left weeks ago to be head of academy at Dundee, hence we took Thompson
Lovenkrands linked with a managers job in Denmark.

16 Feb 2019 08:09:49
Yes Jboy21,stephen wright left his rangers coaching role several weeks ago now, to take up his new position as head of dundee's academy.
Lovenkrands linked with becoming manager of his local danish club at the end of the season.

16 Feb 2019 08:45:00
wright gone already. bid is in for peter.

16 Feb 2019 13:43:20
Thanks coops for confirmation of my reply to iom.

11 Feb 2019 07:58:38
Ryan Kent not likely to stay on at rangers. Gary McAllister, sky sports paper talk.

Agree4 Disagree0

11 Feb 2019 08:26:54
If you read the article the headline is absolute nonsense as always. GM stares he is a Liverpool player so it's up to Liverpool what the future holds. If Rangers start talking about buying him and wanting him too much without respecting Liverpool as his employers would be very poor for the relationship between both clubs. We will do the talking behind the scenes but Liverpool have the right to look at their own player again in preseason to determine if he is in the managers plans or not. It will be at this time Rangers will be in a position to possibly buy or loan Kent again.

11 Feb 2019 19:39:01
Yeh headline nonsense. I think rangers will be in constant contact with Liverpool with regards to Kent and if we did manage to keep him next year I think it would be another loan with option at the end for a permanent deal.

14 Feb 2019 10:45:11
If morelos is sold we could put the money to buy kent and a replacement for morelos.

09 Feb 2019 11:20:37
With Fredo now out I know he hasn't set the heather on fire but this could be the break Lafferty has been waiting for this is the chance for SG to try and play 2 up front McCoist / Hately style one of them small to get the ball on the deck and the taller target man to deal with balls on the air. but he will have to go out heart and soul and take this chance that's been presented to him but then of course the gaffer has changed the shape of the team before and it hasn't worked so height be reluctant to try it in the cup game in case it doesn't work and we go out the cup.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2019 11:42:16
When he was with us previously Lafferty would hardly kick a ball until from this point of the season onwards. Let's hope thia continues. With an able deputy keeper ans another class striker i think we will be fine.

09 Feb 2019 21:11:28
Totally agree to playing 2 up top and would like to see us go 352.Think it would help us create more chances especially now we have Defoe to help Alfredo up top. Would be a bit worried going 442 as it would could leave us a bit light in middle of the park. Saying that apart from Celtic we really should be outplaying every other side in the league with the players we have.

10 Feb 2019 18:28:52
Lafferty is dead weight an anchor at best I said so before we aquired no change.

12 Feb 2019 00:08:44
We don't need 3 centre halfs against most teams. It would effectively leave us a man short in the middle or up front. Roughly speaking our attacking formation is 2 1 7, in defence 4 1 4 1. We would also have to drop one of the more skilful players to accommodate an extra CH. Considering breaking diddy teams down is an onerous task the more skilled footballers on the pitch the better.

12 Feb 2019 10:00:22
Currently we have only 2 centre halfs. Worrall doesn't dir that description.

08 Feb 2019 23:41:11
It's getting out of hand now. Simunovic, brown and Burke all get away with nothing and we have 2 players banned. At the time I thought morelos deserved it but having seen other angles (not via media) he's clearly not able to do anything about it and if he'd wanted to could of really hurt McKenna. McGregor probably deserved a ban but if he gets one surely there lad must be sighted too? It's time we stand up to those in power.

Agree2 Disagree0

09 Feb 2019 08:25:01
Do you think Steven Gerrard has now found out about the corruption in scottish football to help (THEM) to 10 in a row its clear that liewell has his placements in the media to drive the agenda through all we see after every Rangers game is ex (THEM) players telling anyone that wants to listen how bad morelos is lets get one thing straight they are terrified of wee alfie sky we have walker bad mouthing him from the start of every game he plays in I think our media department need to get a grip on this ASAP the compliance officer has ties to (THEM) as well surely you would think thats a conflict of interest for a start and I would like to see the number of times a rangers player has been cited to one of (THEM) I am sure that would make interesting reading.

09 Feb 2019 09:05:18
They have only been citied and found guilty once in 9 years that Derek bo Reichter or whatever he was called. Broon pants has NEVER and he is a dirty baldy B as we all know. . But the refs are all cheating Rangers fans remember .

09 Feb 2019 11:43:32
Stevie G knew all about this even before he took ths job.

09 Feb 2019 12:45:03
If the buffalo had stood his ground it may have resulted in a, yellow
But he went to ground clutching
His face and looking to see, the outcome the, ref obviously seen
McKenna retaliation that is why
He received the first red
And the fourth official has said
Buffalo instegated the fouling.

09 Feb 2019 15:52:38
Perth true blue your getting obsessed we scumtic our two players deserved all they got being honest.

10 Feb 2019 18:21:34
Morelos leg got tangled and there was very little he could do if you look closely if he had wanted he could of hurt McKenna big time 6counties. Highlighting obvious inconsistency is not obsession.

10 Feb 2019 18:51:17
Mckenna only gets a 1 match ban and Fergusons challenge should be reviewed.
Morelos 3 game ban
McGregor pending 2 game ban.

12 Feb 2019 13:37:34
I know Motelos got extra game for past record but why didn't McKenna get 2 games?

08 Feb 2019 20:17:38
Alfredo banned for 3 games - McGregor banned for 2, no mention of Mckenna or Lewis Ferguson tackle on McGregor?
Maden was, looking right at the McGregor incident and didn't even give a foul, a penalty or a card!

Seems the media and other managers are hell bent on getting our players banned - are they all running scared now that the Bears are on the way back?
No one likes us, we don't care.

Agree2 Disagree1

08 Feb 2019 20:59:07
The obvious bias against us is another incentive for the team to hump everyone we play. We can use this to our advantage.

08 Feb 2019 22:47:44
In 2012 we went to the 4th of Scottish Football and we were news all over the world. 6 years later we brought in a legend to manage our football club. In between not much has happened. They all know only one team will stop Celtic. Thursday was a message let's make tomorrow another. However ignore conspiracy theory's.

08 Feb 2019 23:09:38
Think McKenna also gets a 3 game ban as for Ferguson as he was booked for the incident I dont think anything could be done.

09 Feb 2019 00:23:46
Arthur d McKenna two match ban.
Alfredo missis extra game as he has passed a points threshold due to his two reds this season and 15 bookings.

09 Feb 2019 00:41:36
We go on about Morelos horrendous discipline record. Season 17/18 missed one match due to suspension.
This season in Scotland missed three matches to date, one being the semifinal, due to two bookings in cup.
One for sending off at ibrox, other due to number of bookings.
Now heading for three match ban.
No matches missed due to injury.

Plus a sending of in Europe.
Lad has 23 goals and 15 assists, so for me not a liability.
However, he simply has to improve his discipline without taking edge from game.
Remember Ryan jack sent off four times in league and once closed door game last season, he has improved discipline,
I read all this guff sell him, no way I say.

09 Feb 2019 00:59:11
Why would mckenna be mentioned? Aberdeen never appealed it. Not ideal for 2moro. Hopefully we can get through these 3 games without him. big lafferty in the mix.

09 Feb 2019 00:01:23
No mention of mckenna because they didn't appeal. Ferguson takle there wasnt anything in it. Time for defoe to step up.

09 Feb 2019 09:10:35
Dont think hes had 15 Assists tbh hes got 3 in the league dont think hes managed another 12 in the other competitions. Probably closer to 7 or 8.
Still a great return with his goal record on top of that. He has to win POTY as nobody else has performed as well or as consistently this season.

09 Feb 2019 11:44:57
Glasgow rangers so rangers and all the statisticians r wrong.

12 Feb 2019 15:27:39
Trial by Sportscene.

08 Feb 2019 19:11:25
Anyone any word on Morelos yet. Im lead to believe it was a 6:00 hearing. Fear worst to be honest after hearing McGregors been charged and could face a 2 match ban.

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Feb 2019 19:56:42
3 game ban. SFA bunch of jokers.

08 Feb 2019 19:59:23
3 game ban misses Killie Hamilton and st Johnstone games. Joke.

08 Feb 2019 20:00:04
Three game ban, also MacGregor offered two game ban.

08 Feb 2019 20:13:53
Buffalo to get three game ban
To be, honest this has been coming.

08 Feb 2019 20:41:38
McGregor 2 match ban mmorelos 3 match ban well done guys 2 of our best players let the red mist come down how stupid.

08 Feb 2019 20:55:32
Take the blue tinted glasses off for a minute guys! I agree with you, Macbow!

08 Feb 2019 21:07:59
yeh has been coming because of media highlighting everything he does never see them doing this with any other player. how the can see what happend as violent conduct is beyond me. Well we will soon find out if we can cope without him I bet any money we will struggle is his absence offers so much to the team.

08 Feb 2019 21:19:38
gives defoe or lafferty some minutes and rests morelos for a potential title run in, every cloud lol.

08 Feb 2019 21:26:58
Terrible decision, whether it has been coming or not is completely and utterly irrelevant, each case is judged on its own merits.

08 Feb 2019 23:04:45
Could be worse. We'll miss him big time tomorrow but you'd like to think we've enough to get passed the other 2 without him if not I'd be seriously concerned.

08 Feb 2019 23:49:15
all due respect MacGregor should get that. was complete stupidity. Morelos should get it for play acting. when you see it he takes his hands from his face to see if ref watches the foul and laughs. I'm a rangers supporter but got no time for play acting.

he is a very very good footballer and head and shoulders above the rest but sadly his discipline will cost him his future. it can't carry on like that. his 2nd goal was magnificent the other night but the other side of his game is ridiculous.

09 Feb 2019 11:44:42
Craigs8688,i'm certainly not saying we won't miss alfredo, because of course we will! I rate him so highly and have stated on here many times,
how much. Its his indiscipline I'm questioning and what hopefully, steven gerrard can do to curb it a little!
