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

As1974

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.

Here's a list of Stevie G signings. I'm sure I've missed some. Make your own mind up folks.

Grezda (wont play again for the club. Garbage anyway)
Lafferty (couldn't hit a barn door)
Polster (who you say? not had a chance)
King (not played)
Dochery (not played)
Hastie (on loan) can't rate yet
Ojo (got it but lazy and frustrating)
Hellander (durys out)
Barker (not had a run)
Sadiq (awful)
Worrall (bomscare)
Coulibally (brutal)
McCauley (was finished)
Ojaria (did nothing)
Kent (hes in the neutral category) done nothing since resigning but been injured. 7m wasted imo.
Stewart (Not given a chance)
Goldson. (Undroppable in SG eyes)

Pluses
Gregg's (brilliant)
Defoe (class)
Davis (class)
Barasic (came good)
Jack (fantastic)
Kamara (stole him. 7/ 10)
Arfield (definitely a plus but a shadow of the player he was last season)

As1974

1.) 09 Dec 2019 09:17:54
Well considering all those terrible signings (according to you) we're doing well then? 2 points of the top of the league, great chance to progress in Europe on Thursday. Not bad considering.


2.) 09 Dec 2019 09:34:26
Didnt sign jack or docherty.


3.) 09 Dec 2019 09:36:36
Ridiculous reply to a post that highlight that about 25% of signing have or are working out. Take out Kent, Stewart, Barker and Helander and there is no argument

P. s. you forgot #freeKatic. % success to failure is not good enough.


4.) 09 Dec 2019 09:51:54
Many of these signings were band aids on a gunshot wound mate. Was always going to be a process over a few transfer windows to get the right mix. Now that we have stability, he’s able to add one or two per window. It’s unfair to have a pop at those who he brought in initially. Judge him from the start of this season, and for me, it’s going well.

It could’ve been Mciness. Just let that sink in for a moment or two.


5.) 09 Dec 2019 09:52:36
Mr Grumpy your jumping to conclusions. I'm just stating our signings.


6.) 09 Dec 2019 10:06:27
Stevie didn’t sign docherty or jack.


7.) 09 Dec 2019 10:07:47
Yeah man that friggin keeper imagine him stopping the ball going in the goal!
That’s the difference your happy losing a game and missing loads of chances
But Celtic play bad and win the cup. difference between a wee team and a big team!


8.) 09 Dec 2019 12:02:11
As1974 u still slaughtering the team get over it and let's get behind the team for Thursday.


9.) 09 Dec 2019 14:28:28
Briggs, is that a Monday joke you typed on here?


10.) 09 Dec 2019 16:01:50
Yea 1974 if your going to slaughter signings at least get your facts right or you do make yourself look a tad silly.


 

 

08 Dec 2019 13:51:27
Davis out and so is Edwuard.
Sorry to sound negative guys and hope I'm wrong. I fear the worst.

As1974

1.) 08 Dec 2019 13:57:22
Think edouard is a bigger loss tbh. Lewis morgan is a bang average player. This should give rangers a massive lift.


2.) 08 Dec 2019 14:08:19
Eduardo being out is a boost for us but we need watch there movement off ball sit of and we are in trouble
more importantly we need to get at them from the get go and get in there faces we can win this if we do this well we will win i have a feeling we will win today.


 

 

06 Dec 2019 22:38:37
About SG signing a new contract. don't get me wrong I think he's doing well but for me his biggest problem is that he can't change a game. Look at Wed for example. We were crying out for a change of personal. He makes subs too late as well. His tactical awareness seems to be lacking. I think if he doesn't win anything this year then the board has a big decision to make.

As1974

1.) 06 Dec 2019 22:53:16
1974, he is a rookie boss and will improve as we all make mistakes 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧.


2.) 06 Dec 2019 23:27:42
Are you a comedian in real life?


3.) 07 Dec 2019 00:12:24
As1974, the board wouldn't be trying to get s. g to sign an extension to his current contract if they had any intentions of speaking to s. g in the summer, they have seen enough in his 18 month to know that s. g has made a big difference at our club, have you not?


4.) 07 Dec 2019 02:22:13
As1974 that's a nonsense statement. look where we have come from and you want the board to bag him? Behave mate.


5.) 07 Dec 2019 07:12:50
SG signing a new contract is incredible news. He’s doing a fantastic job. If he knew how to win every game and make every decision correctly he wouldn’t be managing Rangers. Just look at Man U or Arsenal. It’s a tougher gig than being good at champ man or FIFA or whatever it’s now called.

We’ve had some drastic managers in our recent past and dodged a bullet called McInnes that could have set us back years. SG is the best thing to happen to our club since the magnificent person himself. He’ll prove it. Starting today.


6.) 07 Dec 2019 08:10:59
Only great news if he wins something this season. Praying this happens tomorrow be a massive weight off everyones shoulders. If he has another trophyless season then just means will cost a lot to get rid if him.


7.) 07 Dec 2019 11:28:15
I'm most definitely with the majority here. Steven Gerrard is doing a terrific job as our manager.
You just need to look at where we were and now where we are, since he became rangers manager, only 18 months ago. Our european results thus early in his reign have been exceptional, to say the least. Of course he's made mistakes as he's still a very young manager and only been our manager for a short time, in which we've made massive strides! He undoubtedly imo will learn from experience, on the mistakes he's made and i for one am delighted he's signed a new deal to extend his deal as rangers manager. I back stevie G and our team to the hilt. As i've said before on here, i honestly think steven gerrard will win the league as rangers manager! 👍👏.


8.) 07 Dec 2019 22:30:38
So I'm not allowed an opinion no? So if he doesn't win the league this season does he get another season? Even though it could be 10 in a row to the Mhanks?
Course I want him to do well and of course i want him to win the league or a cup. But I'm saying if he doesn't then I think with the money he's spent he's under pressure.


9.) 08 Dec 2019 00:48:51
I’m kind of in the middle here. If we lose and drop more points before January then shaky peg. If he wins tomorrow and stays on Celtic’s coattails or claws back the dropped points, happy days. Think he’s done well to this point but his blinkers for certain players are starting to worry me.


10.) 08 Dec 2019 13:24:00
Cant argue Wagsman. He has blinkers especially for Tav and Goldson. Hope it doesn't come back to bite him.


 

 

05 Dec 2019 09:36:38
Now that the dust has settled and I've calmed down a bit. Hers my thoughts.
Our captain Tav needs dropped. So does Goldson. The jury is out for Hellander. he's more suited to Europe. It's clear that Tav and Goldson are the golden boys. If SG doesn't drop they two let me tell you we will win nothing. It needs nipped in the bud now. If we drop any more points and play like that again you can forget the league for a start. If I'm being honest we will be lucky to win the cup on Sunday. Play the 2 I've mentioned and we are doomed. kent 7m? Not a chance. If Borna isint fit for Sunday we need to play Halliday because Flannagin is another bombscare. For some reason Morelos didn't look interested last night. SG since day one can't make a change at the right time. The game was crying out for Defoe or Stewart. Massive wake up call SG and if you don't change things god help you. Yes you've done well in Europe etc but we've won nothing yet. Make changes before it's too late.

As1974

1.) 05 Dec 2019 10:51:45
Yup your mostly right As1974, It's the same old same old our defence is absolutely abysmal and always will be till the manager and assistants get it sorted asap.

2 up and to throw away such a brilliant starts is realy getting me down again.

When Tav chested the ball off our goal line did one of our players deflect it into our goal again? , as I have not seen the replay yet.


2.) 05 Dec 2019 11:20:09
Yes Hellander. SG keeps Tav on set pieces. Why? I thought SG had more balls than this. You can only stick with players so long . If they are poor and not performing drop them. Captain or not. Ultimately if he doesn't he will lose his job.


3.) 05 Dec 2019 12:02:52
Agree why he put ojo on baffles touched the ball twice which thought would happen if he brought him on but I think he will keep playing his golden boys which I think will result in dropping points in this busy month . its not a matter of not getting behind team when your so much on top in first half then bomb scares keep letting u down at the back frustrating to say least.


4.) 05 Dec 2019 12:12:50
Are you not slightly overreacting to a draw, away from home? Yes we should be winning after being 2 up.
We're sitting 2points of the top of the league, in a cup final, with a great chance to get through in Europe and you criticise/ change half the team? 🤔.


5.) 05 Dec 2019 13:03:53
Talking about the manager losing his job is hysterical nonsense, in fact every post AS74 has made are hysterical, over the top reactions to a draw away from home.


6.) 05 Dec 2019 14:27:36
Mr grumpy and daisy yore can’t believe I’m reading some of this.

Why aren't we changing this? Defoe and Stewart on.

I agree about everything definitely other than Kamara. he's too lightweight and doesn't have any dig. We don't have enough attacking midfielders either who score goals.

So Morelos hasn't scored against them? Who gives a toss!
The next big move he gets do you think "oh he hasn't scored against Celtic. don't buy him". Seriously man have a word with yourself.

@John 25. Your post is totally irrelevant. I stated that the players our manager has spent good money on has failed. The statistics are there in front of you. A lot of people including you are in total denial. I've mentioned the mistakes he making. Sure we all do, but he is not learning. SG has been in the job 18 months. Now I'm not saying win this cup and that league but he's got to start producing big time. We bottled it last year in Europe against poor opposition. 12 points behind the mhanks who were total gash! This year we will fall more points behind Celtic as we are getting used to failure. SG is too bloody stubborn or gutless to drop our captain and at least one CB. Yes the team is performing better, of that there is no doubt but we have got to start winning trophies. That's what he will be judged on. Not performances.
