Greg Stewart apparently signed a 2 year deal. Useful addition I guess.


1.) 25 May 2019 02:22:50
Baffling addition more like nowhere near good enough even as a sqoad player Gerrard spoke of quality over quantity this summer and the sign8ngs have been underwhelming to put it mildly even players we are linked with are not going to be game changers need to buck our ideas up drastically if we are to challenge.

2.) 25 May 2019 07:13:26
Mate we play in Scotland no Spain. Who do you want to attract? We can't spend lots of money on big singings. It's going to be Loan deals or free transfers. If we do spend it will be a couple of mil tops. That's where we are I'm afraid.

3.) 25 May 2019 08:03:11
Nothing like giving players a chance to prove themselves.

4.) 25 May 2019 08:59:00
Who do you think we should be signing stiv65?

5.) 25 May 2019 09:22:56
Totally agreed, don’t see the point signing stewart pointless and useless signing even on a free.

6.) 25 May 2019 09:31:01
You mean the same greg stewart that has caused us all sorts of problems stiv65? Check out our record against aberdeen and killie this season👍. Granted he won't be an immediate first 11 pick but he'll be a very useful squad player, much better than our current squad players and a proven spl player👍.

7.) 25 May 2019 10:23:40
So is Jones. Loan him back to Killie.

8.) 25 May 2019 10:49:46
Don't usually disagree with u coldo but I do this one. I don't get the Stewart signing he's not better than candeais etc. We should only be using the budget this year on players to improve the starting 11. This means the guys pused out end up filling the squad and the rest of the deadwood go out the door.

9.) 25 May 2019 11:36:46
Here is a little stat that may change your minds re G Stewart. This season when Greg Stewart has played Centre Forward on 14 occasions he has 8 goals and 5 assits. Aberdeen are playing the boy out in the wing, where he is not effective. Now compare that to our other squad striker big lafferty.

10.) 25 May 2019 12:09:50
Most of us on here do realise we need a new left back. I've got no doubt, just like i've said before that barisic is talented, but lacks the heart, for the endeavour of our league. The 2 left backs i think we should go for are max lowe of derby county, currently on loan at the sheep, or kilmarnock left back greg taylor. what's our thoughts on this,
fellow bears?

11.) 25 May 2019 12:09:51
Keep saying guys wait till window opens that’s when to judge never know might be another Kamara amongst the frees.

12.) 25 May 2019 12:11:13
FB I would agree that in an ideal world we should bring in players that improve the starting 11 and then those pushed out make up the squad. But we don't have the cash to do that. Yes we can go and get 3 or 4 for the starting 11 but we need a squad and players like stewart jones hastie are better squad players than what we currently have👍.

13.) 25 May 2019 12:34:08
Stewart will prove his worth. Definitely better than Lafferty. Every time he played he gave us problems so cut the guy some slack.

Regarding Barasic. He looked really good for Oesek (spelling) but looks out his depth at Rangers. He seems to switch off in games and that's an issue. Personally I would sell him as well as Grezda.

14.) 25 May 2019 12:41:27
Stewart is a Rangers Supporter and with a full pre season under his belt and at a level of fitness that Rangers demand I predict he will be a player that can unlock difficult Scottish defences, Me personally was a bit nervous when he was against us he more often than not beat his man and got his cross in or shot away. He is also very experienced. He comes across as the cheeky chappy type and will add to the dressing room. They are building a team that live and breath Rangers and will empty the tank as SG would say every time they put the top on. Not like the over paid junk the other side of town.

15.) 25 May 2019 13:37:39
Stiv65, ever thought it possible that we can't sign anything other than frees right now for one simple reason - the transfer window isn't even open yet? The guys we've signed will help make up a squad of 25-26, of which about 18 are already in place. That means there are more to come and these will be the players we all know we need.

16.) 25 May 2019 15:15:57
Give the guy a chance to bed in then bet he fly's off the blocs. Gerrard sees something in him.

17.) 25 May 2019 15:39:01
Here's a stat, Lawrence Shankand is a free agent and has scored 50 goals in 61 games. **** Greg Stewart, this lad is the best striker in Scotland.

18.) 25 May 2019 15:49:00
but shanks has never scored in spl.

some people.

19.) 25 May 2019 15:56:42
Daisy yore any team can buy any player at any time they just need to wait till window to register the player.

20.) 25 May 2019 17:45:48
Greg Stewart is worth a punt Two year deal for FREE Certainly can be a useful addition as a squad player Just needs toget more goals to his game and play consistently! Gerrard can get the best of this lad and what better he is a die hard Rangers player!

I can see Gerrard is going to go for a couple of quality players that will be first team. players but we also need to go for depth in the squad! Rangers will be getting rid of at least 7 players this year!

21.) 25 May 2019 18:53:08
Greg Stewart is a good signing on a free and will do a job when called upon in certain games and has proved he can in the SPL.

22.) 25 May 2019 18:57:48
We mostly all agree a new left back
That can play domestically is essential
Back up center back is a must
I would like to see, a, right back that can defend not tav
A captain that steps up every game
A striker who can score and stay on the field for ninety minutes
Offload all the dead wood.

23.) 26 May 2019 12:10:23
I think his signings so far have been positive.
Young players who know the league and have been playing well last season for worse teams.
Jones has scored a few against Celtic and Rangers and is a better impact player than Middleton.
Stewart is good in the 10 and is great back up for Arfield with double figures goals and assists last season in the league.
Hastie has explosive turn of pace and is a good finisher, he either looks the part and is good addition in pre season or goes out on loan to Motherwell potentially and does damage against everyone else apart from us in league.
Davis proved his worth in final cpl of months and us another shrew acquisition.
These guys were all FREE or development fee signings with low risk attached.
Wait till the actual transfer window opens and see who we get I’m sure there’s another 2-3 good signings to follow and i'm positive about who they might be.

24.) 26 May 2019 12:47:39
I keep hearing things like oh who do I want us to sign then and it's SPL we play in and not Spain if that is attitude amount our fans who think Greg Stewart is the answer then it shows how much mediocrity some of our fans are willing to accept I'm not saying we can spend millions and millions but I expect a better calibre of player than Greg Stewart and Jake Hastie np disrespect to those players but we need game changers or we will never seriously challenge even players we are being linked with is very underwhelming ie boy from Oldham John Souter forget about how he they might become in future it's about here and now to stop other lot winning 10 in a row our recruitment needs to be lot better because for every Kamara and Ryan Kent there's been Grezda Barisic McCauley so we need to get quality in not mediocre players who will just fill a squad number.

Terrible first half. there's no movement in the Rangers team up top. Ojo is the most frustrating player to watch. Great save from shagger!


1.) 22 Sep 2019 13:04:56
Goldson is becoming another Worrol, a bombscare, and davis is slowing the game to a standstill when he gets the ball.

2.) 22 Sep 2019 17:11:13
Cant say that Jim. Totally disagree.



19 Sep 2019 19:19:16
Just seen the team. Dropped katic for Hellander. Playing Kamara. Why aren't we playing barker and put Arfield back in centre mid. OJo has to up his game big time.

Very risky changes. Hellander can't be match fit.

Hope this pays off! Come on Gers!


1.) 19 Sep 2019 21:00:52
Ojo has been the difference and helander has been solid mate.

2.) 19 Sep 2019 22:07:06
Hellander started off a bit dodgy and then grew in to the game. Arfield, Jack and Morelos were fantastic. We should have won by 4 or 5. Squeaky bum time at the end but we got there. Great 3 points!



17 Sep 2019 21:13:35
Hastie just scored a cracker for Rotherham. 3 in 3!


1.) 17 Sep 2019 21:50:49
Hope jake hastie keeps this form up.
He's absolutely been flying since going on loan to rotherham. I think its the correct decision to send him out on loan, as gerrard couldn't guarantee him playing time, whereas he's guaranteed that with rotherham.
He'll come back to us next season, a much better player. Hastie has the potential within him, to be a superb winger for us, in the future. He's a very powerful, direct winger with pace and can also score goals. He has all this in his locker and if we develop him in the correct way, i truly think we'll have a terrific winger on our hands. Hastie is still only 20 years old.

2.) 18 Sep 2019 06:15:15
Just like Docherty, he'll come back a better player full of confidence raring to go and then not get a look in under Gerard.

3.) 18 Sep 2019 06:42:58
Look how it has worked out for Docherty! Unfortunately he can't get any game time and needs to be loaned out again for his development rather than wasting on the bench or at times not even in the squad.

Not any youth getting any chances with SG just now as he seems to have gone down the tried and trusted route.
Hastie has potential, whether we make the best of it time will tell. Would be nice to start developing young players and sell them on for a profit after a few years.

4.) 18 Sep 2019 08:13:00
Docherty went to Shrewsbury last season, was their player of the year, came back a better player and now we hardly see him we should be looking to send the youngsters out to a far higher standard of team in England, an SPFL team or keeping them. in my opinion.

5.) 18 Sep 2019 08:29:33
Recall him and play him on the right instead of Ohno.

6.) 18 Sep 2019 08:56:13
The Oracle has spoken, so it must be true.

7.) 18 Sep 2019 11:27:57
What do you mean styab?

8.) 18 Sep 2019 11:56:48
I'd much rather Hastie was at Ibrox banging in 3 goals in 3 games. When are these youngsters going to get a chance to show what they can do? The likes of Ojo hasn't impressed me so far. And what about Docherty, another who has not yet been given a chance. I appreciate these younger players must bide their moment but surely they can be given game time against, e. g. Livingston, with all respect to them.



14 Sep 2019 14:04:33
Just heard the team news. Kent starts!
Why the f**k do we play Halliday?

I don't care what anyone says. he's mince. End of.


1.) 14 Sep 2019 14:10:50
SG disagrees with you.

2.) 14 Sep 2019 14:23:38
I don’t think Halliday is mince, but I would’ve played Barasic, still beggars belief that the left back for Croatia can’t cut it in this league!

3.) 14 Sep 2019 14:37:48
as1974 I hope you are not here today!

4.) 14 Sep 2019 14:41:36
Jyf spot on, no matter who plays, we should be behind them 100%. I for one don’t think any of our players are mince! Far from it!

5.) 14 Sep 2019 15:05:50
Come on guys get the blinkers off. I don't care if he's a die hard Gers guy he's not good enough for our squad.

6.) 14 Sep 2019 15:16:52
He’s no great but he’s no mince as you say.

7.) 14 Sep 2019 15:22:25
Well each to their own but he is sorry.

8.) 14 Sep 2019 17:17:38
So the manager and coaching staff are wrong but As1974 is correct?

9.) 14 Sep 2019 17:52:45
Halliday is rank rotten.



14 Sep 2019 13:25:20
Think it was Commons that just said Fraser Forster is one of the best keepers in the world! Haha what's he on.


1.) 14 Sep 2019 14:10:05
I would love to see the first choice keeper at Southampton maybe even the 2nd choice. They must be amazing, to keep the 3rd choice world class FF out of goal lol.

What's this 100% for the club crap? I'm not buying that. I don't hate or dislike Halliday but the end of the day he's not good enough. SG shouldn't be playing him.

JYF he's not a left back. End of. He wasnt linking at all with Kent. 5 yard passes here and there.

I think we really need to look at another striker. I think Defoe is a great wee striker but we really need more of a target man IMO.

Most improved player at Rangers. Very underated.
