To the people saying that Miller and Wallace have been suspended for speaking up; garbage. Surely you don't think that is the real reason?

Miller wants to be Rangers manager and him and Wallace were in the ear of Dave King at the Semi Final against Motherwell. It was them I believe effectively got Pedro sacked. Then the job goes to Murty and they are again not happy. Low and behold it's the same two players who have an issue and his wife chips in again on Twitter. Not a peep since the last debacle.

I firmly believe that these two have been disruptive and in the ears of other players the whole time under Murty because they've lost their places and this has had a small part in lowering the moral of the whole team.

Now I'm glad Wallace stayed with us after being sent down to the lower leagues, but it's not as though he wasn't paid during that spell, and quite handsomely too but he's been rubbish since we got back up and neither him, nor "King Kenny' are bigger than the club. If they undermine the manager then they deserve to go.

If Murty is back in this scenario then I believe this is an indicator that he's getting the job full time and I also wouldn't be surprised if we see a significant improvement on the park if both players are removed completely.


1.) 18 Apr 2018 17:16:34
Sorry Bigbear. the board backing Murty does not mean he is getting the job. The board gave Murty the job so must be seem to back him. What sort of message would that send out to any new manager who would be thinking of coming. Whether both players were right or wrong a board will always back a manager. end of

2.) 18 Apr 2018 18:59:21
There was one person and one person only who got Pedro sacked. and that was Pedro

3.) 18 Apr 2018 18:59:22
Sorry BigBear I have never read as much utter garbage and you are indinial! Murty has to go now! 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

4.) 18 Apr 2018 19:03:53
Nonsense mate

5.) 18 Apr 2018 19:25:04
Things will need to change if we get beat on Sunday and plus think it will be what team he starts with as cumming deserve a run of games what use think bears

6.) 18 Apr 2018 21:13:09
OR bigbear it could be that we were crap in both games and got bullied off the park so the club CAPTAIN and VICE CAPTAIN spoke out as I would hope they would.

7.) 18 Apr 2018 23:00:54
Jyf. exactly

8.) 19 Apr 2018 07:44:32
Jyf do you REALLY think they’re suspended for voicing an opinion after 2 poor performances? It’s far more than that!

Colster do you remember Pail Le Guen and Pedro?

9.) 19 Apr 2018 12:31:30
Yes BB it is more than that but those wasters deserve more that that, what would you have done if you were allowed into the dressing room after the game? Shake hands and tell them "unlucky boys". There are too many snowflakes nowadays, You included BigBear?

10.) 19 Apr 2018 13:12:38
Yeah Jyf I would have given the players a right going over, but as I've said, the reason they have been suspended is not because of how they've spoken to the other players. This happens regularly and is confirmed in many a press interview saying there was a 'Frank exchange of views'.

This is exactly the reason I feel the suspension is down to other behaviours from the two and the way in which they've conducted themselves toward Murty on Sunday has been the tip of the ice berg.

Do you think it's just a coincidence it's the same two players who again have a problem with another manager? The fact they are captain and vice captain does not matter. You have to conduct yourself in a reasonable manner.

11.) 19 Apr 2018 17:21:08
BB you obviously know more than I do about what actually went down but I never saw any black eyes or fat lips so it seem it might just have been a "frank exchange of views". And as far as I personally am concerned it DOES matter if you are the captain or vice captain but please share what info you have as to what really happened with Miller and Wallace.



13 Nov 2017 18:05:20
Scenario 1: We appoint McInnes before double header with Aberdeen he loses both games or doesn't do well and puts himself under immediate pressure.

Scenario 2: We appoint someone else before Aberdeen double header and they lose both games putting themselves under immediate pressure and causing people to shout we should have gone for McInnes.

Granted both of these scenarios are on the basis we don't win both games in the double header but this is the risk for the board and the reason I believe no decision will be announced until after these games.


1.) 13 Nov 2017 18:28:10
That’s an excellent couple of points and very plausible. On the other hand win both games and the manager will be hailed a hero

2.) 13 Nov 2017 21:18:12
An excellent couple of points? Really? Oh aye the board are thinking . let’s not appoint the new manager until after the 2 Aberdeen games just incase the new manager loses them both and everyone wants him immediately sacked . Pure mince

3.) 13 Nov 2017 21:35:00
Surely McInnes would be the best person to know how to beat his own team?

4.) 13 Nov 2017 22:12:08
scenario 3- we don't get anyone in, lose both and the fans go daft for the board taking too long 😂😂

5.) 14 Nov 2017 01:43:22
Or maybe the board are just doing the sensible thing and trying to get the best quality possible for a manager and whenever it happens, it happens.

6.) 14 Nov 2017 07:29:23
Scenario 4 - Rangers beat Aberdeen home and away with Murty still in charge and Derek McInnes is no longer considered for the vacancy.

7.) 14 nov 2017 12:47:39
scenario 5 we appoint mcinnes and win both games and challange for the title lol



29 Jul 2017 19:28:41
I have a feeling Wes will be offski since we played Alnwick against Watford.

Would have thought that most of preferred first team would be playing in latest games.


1.) 29 Jul 2017 20:48:20
Pedro said starting 11 against Wednesday would be close to the starting 11 against Motherwell. We'll need to wait till tomorrow

2.) 29 Jul 2017 22:32:47
Yeah think wes will be back for Wed game.

3.) 29 Jul 2017 23:11:40
There is no game on Sheffield Wednesday.

4.) 30 Jul 2017 00:07:08
If Wes goes, then Zander Clark at St Johnstone should be our No 1 replacement

Alnwick isn't Rangers class. struggled against St Johnstone away on last game of the season.

5.) 30 Jul 2017 00:15:54
Hope not. Get rid of wes asap

6.) 30 Jul 2017 07:22:29
Greyfriar- incorrect mate he didn't struggle at all the defense did. In the minimal game time he's had and his previous experience I would say at 23/ 24 he will easily fill big awesome boots and is a more rounded keeper, if he isn't then I would prefer to see young Liam Kelly getting game time prior to any other keeper being brought I .

7.) 30 Jul 2017 07:24:29
So sell Foderingham and keep Alnwick. Come on now.

8.) 30 Jul 2017 16:54:15
Big time ahead wishing the boys all the best today.

Been thinking over past few days about a lot of the comments saying Pedro should get the boot as he's "Not the man for the job" which I will come back to in a moment.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but during Rangers 9 in a row. How many times did Celtic finish 2nd? The answer is twice. Just twice?!

Up until this time they finished 3rd 4 times, 4th twice and even as low as 5th once.

My argument as to the reason for this record is because they never at any point had a settled team. Too much chopping and changing until eventually, they brought in Tommy Burns who finished 4th in his first season. His team settled, strengthened key areas the following season and mounted a serious challenge. Obviously he was against Sir Walter or it might have been a better outcome for him.

Anyway, this brings me back to my initial point. If we don't show patience and continue to give the manager the bullet every 6 to 12 months, how are we ever going to settle? New manager comes in, changes full team and we are back to square one. Walter Smith came in with a settled team from Souness. McLeish from Advocaat. Smith Again from Le Guen (decent core to the team and strengthened key areas) .

Pedro has come in a built an entire new team and we are still sitting 3rd. But for a few positions (left wing and full backs) we do now have a decent core and I personally do see improvement.

Patience Bears. Give him at least a season, see where we are before making a hasty judgment.


1.) 01 Oct 2017 08:18:39
Spot on Big Bear 😃. For me Pedro will now be judged on his ability to see through the next few fixtures, victories against St. Johnstone and Motherwell would be massive for him and would hopefully convince the haters to give him till the end of the season to reflect.

Declan John was very good on Friday and I see him as our left wing solution in this formation. I is blindingly obvious that we need full backs who can defend and Pedro needs to address this in the next window (s) or from the youths below if possible. Until we start keeping regular clean sheets we are not going to challenge for much!

What I would also say is that hopefully some investment has been made into scouting players as this along with youth promotion is where we are most likely to build a challenge. We aren't going to buy our way to the top like the past, Morelos is the only summer signing I can see at present who is likely to move on to bigger things (at a sizeable profit) .

2.) 01 Oct 2017 09:22:24

Convince the haters? Think your being a bit dramatic. I doubt very much anyone who doesn't think he is the right man for the job actually hates him. Very strong word to use and very over dramatic. All Rangers fans want whoever is manager to succeed but sometimes think he won't. Everyone should be able to come on here and give their opinion without people using words like that

3.) 01 Oct 2017 12:39:22
My apologies Sparky, I used the word "haters" as a broad term to articulate the section of fans who would rather Pedro was moved on. I'll choose some less offensive language in future!

4.) 01 Oct 2017 17:14:07
why you apologising there are haters out there amongst our own supporters as well as the tic mob who hate pedro its just the nature of the beast

5.) 01 Oct 2017 19:47:36
Don't be so stupid, people on here Don't hate Pedro. I like the guy and I like his passion, but do I think he is the man - no, but I'd love him to prove me wrong.



07 Sep 2017 12:29:30
This whole thing with MOH and PC is getting on my nerves. PC never skated him. He stated 'He's not my type of player' which is completely different.

Anyway, being in form while out on loan is actually a good thing. He could be in Form for us and help to win games we should probably be winning anyway without him (whether we do is another point) . Or he could be playing well for another team, taking points off our rivals and then can't play against us effectively weakening St Johnstone and helping us get the win against them.

He had ample opportunity while here to enhance our performance and didn't so to send him out on loan where he's hit a bit if decent form (I don't think it'll last) is a decent way of helping us as stated above.


1.) 07 Sep 2017 12:52:01
if he's playing well and scoring regularly it should also increase his value if it comes to selling him on

2.) 07 Sep 2017 13:53:37
The tabloid media are quick to miss quote PC. It's their party piece. A lot of the things they have printed on what he has said are total misquotes or misconceptions. Putting 2 and 2 together to come out with whatever they feel like. You can still listen to the interviews about MOH being loaned on Youtube. At no point in the interview does PC slate O'Halloran nor does he rule out him coming back.

I for one wouldn't have liked MOH to stay because the effort he displayed was very poor. He couldn't even be bothered making the run to link up half the time. So playing him out of position talk is rubbish. His commitment was pathetic. It's up to him to make it right, not PC's fault he never produced the first time.

3.) 07 Sep 2017 15:22:49
I listened to his interview. He clearly replies "No" when asked if there is a chance he could come back.

He slates him as well, don't remember exact wording but along the lines of not good enough / not type of player rangers need.

The press have purposely misrepresented him in the past and will do so in future but on this one Pedro was in the wrong,

4.) 07 Sep 2017 19:43:40
But you can't remember the exact wording Durrrrrrrrrrr !

5.) 08 Sep 2017 12:41:57
naw mate u can't correct people if u don't know what he said.
he said no when asked if he would be back at ibrox yes but stated that's because he isn't the type of player he sees at rangers and he is the manager and it happens all the time that a player and manager don't get on or don't have the same philosophy and maybe MOH is too stupid to understand technical tactical changes to the way he plays



24 Apr 2017 07:28:30
My thoughts on the game yesterday are that it was lost in the first half in midfield. I think most people will agree that this is where these games are won and lost.

Halliday marking nobody in build up to goal and saunters back with his hand raised when the goal goes in. He was also lucky to stay on the park for his outrageous tackle.

People say keeper should have done better? It was a decent finish and curled in. Not the keepers fault.

Penalty for me wasn't and even Griffiths said Tav got the ball first. These decisions DO even themselves out so no point moaning.

Garner getting stick I feel is unfair. He had no service whatsoever and was hooked at halftime.

Hyndman was hopeless without Toral alongside him. Toral I feel offers a bit of calmness in the ball and always finds a pass. We struggled to string 3 passes together for 75% of the game.

We will see a massive improvement on Saturday. So long as Halliday doesn't start in midfield. We have to look at the positives. PC has brought in 2 young boys who apart from the odd bit of nervousness have done really well. Jason Holt and Tav both look like new players under him. Once he's has a transfer window to shape the team himself I believe we will see even more improvement.

Have faith bears. The result as always is hard to take but these hard times make it all the sweeter when things come good.


1.) 24 Apr 2017 10:04:42
Well said BigBear. We have been on a long journey these last five years and are now back in the top flight. We were never seriously going to compete with celtic this season. I was very disappointed in Warburton and Weir but that's gone now.

Pedro can't be criticised - yet - but why did he start yesterday's game with three centre forwards? I don't rate Waghorn or Garner to be honest. We have young Hardie out there on loan all season who has never been given a chance and Dodoo might have done more had he started.

I agree that Tav and Holt look like new players. Other than them, I'd only keep Fod, Wilson, Bates, Beerman and Miller under a new contract for a year. If, and it is a big if, Rossiter is finally fit he and Kranjcar will be like new signings.

Pedro should only be judged next season when he has had a chance to bring in his own men. We've still a chance next week at home to that mob again. It was only 2-0 yesterday, not 6-0! Have faith in the blues.

2.) 24 Apr 2017 10:09:42
Clear penalty all day long, humped 2-0, never thought 2-0 could be classed as a humping, but they were miles better, get the money out mr King or be happy to finish 2/ 3rd every season, but at least tell the fans what our aims are next year/

3.) 24 Apr 2017 10:15:51
Agree with most of your post apart from Hyndman. He was shifted out to the right for large spells of the game and he's clearly not cut out for that!



20 Feb 2017 07:37:32
This is not the worst team in years! Are they worse than the team who failed to get out of the championship? No!

Yes, I agree, some of these results have been hard to take but that's part and parcel of being a football fan. I'll be at Ibrox every home game and get behind the team whomever the manager is.

Swings and roundabouts guys.

It only takes a season to win a title! Remember just before McLeish took over? Just before Smith came back?


1.) 20 Feb 2017 11:50:25

Superstar in that team even konterman would look like a world class player. Mind you if mccoist was picking the team he would still pick Ian black

4.) 20 Feb 2017 15:58:10
I'll back you on this BigBear1873!I go everywhere supporting my team and will continue to do so, just like yourself! I'll back any manager, head coach or DOF that has the absolute privilege, of working for the institution we all know and love, the famous glasgow rangers! Of course we need sorting out, but it WILL happen through time! Swings and roundabouts, your spot on my friend!

5.) 20 Feb 2017 16:14:15
billy davies gets bad mouthed in england because he had a fallout with an absolute galloot of a chairman at notts forest! The wee man isn't a yes man and i particularly like that inner steel! His managerial record speaks for itself, so my message to our board of directors, is go get billy davies in now to sort these underachievers out.

even if it is only until the end of the season! I'll tell you something, you would without doubt IMO see a difference even with our current players, in which i'd bet on it! He's available now, go get billy davies as our manager in the meantime, we'll take it from there after that!



22 Jan 2017 12:24:16
Where was Halliday on build up to goal when Motherwell strolled through the midfield? Where was the Challenge from Wallace to stop the cross? Easy to always blame closest man to the goal scorer for the goal. Short sites fans continue to blame our defence and attack for lack of performance.

Games are won and lost in midfield. Not enough support to defence? We leak goals! Not enough support to attack? We lack goals.

Strikers constantly having to come deep getting dragged out of position. Defenders constantly left exposed.

I have said before and will say again. We've been playing with a championship midfield due to injuries. Loan signings look promising temporary fixes for now and we are still in 2nd.

I firmly believe things will improve when we are at full strength.


1.) 22 Jan 2017 13:24:36
Kiernan totally abandoned his man.

2.) 22 Jan 2017 14:04:04
Wallace was definitely at fault and was slow to get back on a number of occasions giving away unnecessary free kicks that could have cost us, but I would suggest that on this occasion you are being a bit harsh on Halliday, (and I am generally one that is happy to criticise him) .

Kiernan however was at fault twice, playing one man onside and then losing Moult completely.

Biggest problem with Wallace however is that he is just not leadership material. To be successful we need a leader as captain.

3.) 22 Jan 2017 15:33:16
Thought Halliday looked better yesterday but still think he looks knackered last 20 mins of games.

4.) 22 Jan 2017 16:38:09
Bigbear keirnan was 6 yards behind rest of back 4 when they tried to play offside then lost his man completely. Keirnan does this most weeks his positional sense is awful he's nowhere near what we need in there

5.) 22 Jan 2017 17:51:15
Big bear is spot on certain players are exempt from negative comments big kiernan had been playing but recently has had a few errors and didn't do enough for the goal but Andy Halliday shouldn't be anywhere near the starting 11 he's doing nothing his passing is shocking a can't remember the last time he had a good game for us!

6.) 22 Jan 2017 21:29:59
Halliday is the only option to play the DM position as Rositter is currently injured.
Warbs needs to sign a DM player or bring one in on loan this transfer window.
As to why we let Crooks leave on loan is another strange decision due to the fact if Halliday is injured who replaces him?

Thanks Bearmode91. Glad someone is able to look at cold hard facts.

Rangers have scored 63 league goals this season. 1 more than Celtic but we've conceded 18 more than them. This has been caused in the most part by the losses of Bates and McCrorie at various points of the season and HAVING to play the garbage he has been left with.

So many people keep going on about making changes to the formation etc but why make changes just for the sake of it? It's not the system that is the problem. It's the players who aren't doing enough. We play with 4 at the back and 2 defensive midfielders. How is changing the shape going to stop defensive errors or give Alves any pace to be able to catch anyone?

I ask these people one question. How often did Walter Smith change his tactics or shape during a game? 4-5-1 all the way during his second spell. The difference is that he had decent defenders.

Give Murty the Pre Season transfer window and I'm certain the defence will get sorted.

He’s not got his favourite 11. He has his best available 11. We have the best attack in the league due in no small part to the effect Murty has had since January. That was his priority in January. Another window to fix the defence and get injured players back will do for me.

McArthur would only work if he became a decent player. We need to stop looking at players and assuming they are any good just because they play down south. Out with the top 4-6 in England the league and it's players are average. As evidenced by the dross Strachan had playing for the national team all this time.

The booking to Morelos was planned by Stevie G. Now he misses a game against Dundee instead of one of the harder teams. No reaction from him on touchline at all.

Halliday took a bit of a knock and his concentration went a bit after it. Right sub to make at the right time 👍.

While I don’t think the surface was THE reason for our performance on Sunday, I do believe it was a contributing factor in one or two players performances. Namely Ejaria. Every time he tried to turn a player he lost his footing. Players were slipping about all day. Remember when Barasic got in behind fullback and chose wrong pass to Lafferty? Lafferty slipped then too.

The Livi surface in doesn’t not suit the so called flair players. Killie is slightly better but still not great.

Explain to me what Worral done wrong yesterday which caused the defeat? It was decent call from Livi point of view but the ball went through Shagger’s legs.

Let’s not hit the panic button eh?

What game were you watching? Numerous times Morelos held ball up only to give it to Ejaria for him to take his customery 10 touches before losing his footing on the dodgy Livingston surface.

While I’m not going to blame the surface for the result, it did have an effect on a few players at various points in the match.

That being said, Lafferty was non existent yesterday. Delivery into box was poor and our players seem scared to have a strike from outside the area.

Too many players had an off day yesterday and that I think was the problem. An off day.

We played far better earlier in season and still dropped points. We’ll be better next week.
