Yilmaz, dessers and dowell told to find new clubs allegedly.


1.) 01 Dec 2023 23:57:11
With the exception of Ross and Jack. All should be told to find new clubs as they are not Rangers standard. Rangers standards are players like. Defenders like Grieg, Jardine, Gough, Butcher. Mids like Gazza, B Fergie, I Fergie, Laudrup. Strikers. McCoist and Hatley.

Instead of buying 9 players. 8 of which are not Rangers standard, we could have bought 2 which where and built on that. The buck stops with the board. NOT Beale. Who gets to spend about 40 mill including wages on players and Lammers who are not built for the Scottish weather and football.

2.) 02 Dec 2023 00:01:36
John's source told him about dowell the other day.

3.) 02 Dec 2023 02:26:46

Hopefully Lammers has been told to find a new profession. A tailor's dummy would be a good fit.

My star will be gutted.

4.) 02 Dec 2023 05:47:50
If Clement goes out and buys a first team LW and RW I'll be happy all I ask for is two wingers who aren't injury prone and are willing to run at players. No more playing players out of position please.

5.) 02 Dec 2023 06:28:16
Raisetheroofe why would i be gutted?

6.) 02 Dec 2023 07:04:16
Tbis is good news. Replacing these guys can only strengthen the squad. We will definitely be taking losses on dessers amd yilmaz though. But we will get fees for dowell and sterling so hopefully counter balance that.

7.) 02 Dec 2023 07:11:23
What? And Lammers is to stay?

8.) 02 Dec 2023 07:43:10
Can't see us taking a hit on Yilmaz Paul.

9.) 02 Dec 2023 08:03:57
Also can't see Dowell been told that, maybe he wants it, but can't see an unfit player being told that.

10.) 02 Dec 2023 08:16:30
WhiteHorse, players like those used to be Rangers standard, they aren't any more. Rangers couldn't afford the wages of a Gough, Butcher, or Gazza in today's markets, let alone the transfer fees to buy them.

11.) 02 Dec 2023 08:35:46
We certainly won't make a profit, that's for sure. Think we will struggle to get the 3.5 mill back. He's done absolutely nothing and can't move a rapidly declining barisic from left back.

12.) 02 Dec 2023 08:55:21
Yilmaz will get sold for more than 3.5m, Paul.

13.) 02 Dec 2023 08:57:11
Where do you get these type of players now, White horse? If only? The two Fergusons, Cooper, McClelland, Butcher, they are something I dream about now, Grieg, Kai, wow, all amazing.

14.) 02 Dec 2023 09:15:29
Yilmaz will return to Turkey probably on way less than what we paid. You would need to be crazy to spend more than 3.5m on him. Unfortunately we were the crazy club ?.

15.) 02 Dec 2023 09:36:28
We have only paid 3 million so far for yilmaz, I would want that back.

16.) 02 Dec 2023 09:41:42
Paying 3.5m for Yilmaz that is a steal baz.

17.) 02 Dec 2023 09:54:21
Is dowell not fit? Or just not playing? Scored v airdrie for b team last week.

18.) 02 Dec 2023 10:04:54
It was a bit tongue and cheek, My star. Also, it was just a subtle, and friendly dig, at you waxing lyrical about all 3, and how much of a success each would be. At least your consistent mate. ?.

19.) 02 Dec 2023 10:17:46
White horse, on your original post, I said (often) . we should have been buying maybe 2 QUALITY players every transfer window AFTER we won the league. Build up over a couple of years shd we would / #should have a full hew squad, team by now. Unfortunately it looks like we need another clear out, wtf is going on.?

20.) 02 Dec 2023 10:33:16
Raisetheroofe Yilmaz is a very good footballer same with Dowell, i only said what i seen with the games Dessers played in the conference, only time I've seen him and i was impressed with him.

21.) 02 Dec 2023 11:20:09
Let's be honest here My star, you waxed lyrical about all 3 of them and how much of a success they would be. You done the same with Cifuentes and that just won't happen. Then there is Cantwell who I can't see being here much longer. Then there was Sands who was going to make it, but when he left, you stated he would have a very good career elsewhere, and just like the rest, you were wrong.

It's not the fact you were wrong mate, as we can all get stuff wrong (i get stuff wrong all the time), it's the way you kinda belittle posters who raise concerns about all those mentioned, by acting a wee bit more superior than them because you have played the game, and us mere mortals, haven't!

I really like you as a poster mate, and I really enjoy our wee interactions on here, but sometimes you do give it the big un because of your playing past.

Feel free to list my annoying habits mate (there are a few), I am open to criticism anytime. ?.

22.) 02 Dec 2023 11:27:31
How could paying 3.5 for yilmaz be a steal? he's barely kicked a ball for us. Hence him on way out in jan.

23.) 02 Dec 2023 11:31:36
My star, yet to see anything at all from yilmaz that will make us a profit. can't defend, yes looks decent going forward t times but when he gets there his crossing ability is quite simply not close to good enough. Only so many times people can say he's quality, he has to step up and show it at some point.

24.) 02 Dec 2023 11:36:58
Yilmaz will have no problem finding a club in Turkey and we should make a profit on the sale. Where I see us struggling is with Dessers, Lammers etc., where I can't see us breaking even.
these are not the only players that should go. I really don't see the point in giving Jack a new contract to sit in the stand injured, it is a massive risk, especially if he is still playing internationals.
In reality it is easier to identify the players that we should keep!
Hopefully the new DoF will have identified a few quality targets, he knows what Clement's standards are.
One other thought, why keep Park as Chief Scout, he hasn't exactly brought in any top quality players!

25.) 02 Dec 2023 12:09:54
My Star you have said each and every one of these players are quality but none have shined in SPFL (a terrible league according to you) . All average signings and none quality imo. Yilmaz hasn't had a game were he's been better than a 6 out of 10 in the SPFL.

26.) 02 Dec 2023 12:19:04
It’s no the 90s we aren’t getting players like Gazza etc again it’s time to accept it and stop living in the past those type of players are what sent us under.

27.) 02 Dec 2023 12:22:02
Berkshire I hear Park is leaving soon

We all know a number off players need to move on, however we can only change three players in Europe squad in February, so it still needs to be a balancing act.

We do know yilmaz and dowell can go without affecting Europe, although I’m not in a hurry to move either on.

28.) 02 Dec 2023 12:23:33
Clement will need at least 4 windows to rectify this team and make it his own, Two or Three at each window, Provided monies available,
Hopefully he starts with a goal scorer, And any One or Two from the back Four, Midfield okay at the moment with players coming back from injury or even on loan.

29.) 02 Dec 2023 14:08:35
I have no problem with those three going as a first step in a clear out which might take a couple of windows . My question is, should we sell Yilmaz and Barisic this window and use the money to buy a top class, younger left back, and rely on Devine and Fraser as back up until the summer. I say this because Borna is on a free in the summer so worth nothing . If we are going to sell it has to be now .

30.) 02 Dec 2023 14:26:20
Raisetheroofe Sands will have a good career would be a shame if he didn't, listen mate i give my opinions on each and every player I've seen, Raisetheroofe see if i didn't have a football past I'd still give my opinion on here, don't understand why that makes a difference, why would i mention anything bad about you? am the same enjoy our interactions, obviously you can't see Cifuentes doing well at Rangers mate, here is a thing about my football past, i was also a midfielder and played a few seasons in the epl, but truthfully and in my own opinion the Cifuentes I've seen play on many occasion was a better player than me.

31.) 02 Dec 2023 15:00:27
When we first got linked with Cifuentes i thought no chance, he has only been in our country months, he definitely gets more time from me.

Super we do play in a poor league you think different I'm cool with that, i believe we sell Yilmaz for more than what we payed very fine footballer.

32.) 02 Dec 2023 15:33:39
No I'm just wondering why these so called quality players don't shine in a poor league, My Star. Surely these guys would be strolling it in Scotland?

33.) 02 Dec 2023 15:34:59
Well said raisetheroof.

34.) 02 Dec 2023 15:46:18
Maybe it's that poor a league they can't do their stuff super, we can see that with apart from Rangers every other Scottish clubs performances in Europe.

35.) 02 Dec 2023 16:25:44
Great post the kilted frog am fed up hearing the rangers class rubbish as there is no such thing anymore as no one bar butland (maybe) could be in the bracket in our full team.

36.) 02 Dec 2023 16:27:22
My star, I do get where roofe is coming from as you do come across that way that you think your opinion is mighty than others, but I still love you mate.

37.) 02 Dec 2023 16:28:27
Super cooper, are you saying our league is good like better players than those mentioned on here have been poor in our league? Scottish football is rotten only reason I watch it is because I am a rangers fan.

38.) 02 Dec 2023 17:00:06
Not my intention storm.

39.) 02 Dec 2023 18:26:09
No probs mate I wasn’t digging you out as I live reading your posts. There is someone a hell of a lot worse than you in that matter anyway.

40.) 02 Dec 2023 19:42:42
The players mentioned in the original post would cost in excess of 200 million in this day and age. Get a grip.

41.) 02 Dec 2023 19:43:24
P.s we will never see the likes again at the famous, unfortunately.

42.) 02 Dec 2023 19:55:03
Sorry 2nd post.

43.) 02 Dec 2023 21:48:41
Just hope " another club " isn`t in the back of the net or Dessers will never find it.

44.) 02 Dec 2023 23:37:03
My star I can believe it.

Wouldn't be fair but when you think if pc likes a more traditional 433 or with wingers then dowell struggles to play.

Did he not have similar problems at Norwich.

45.) 03 Dec 2023 08:04:51
You can believe what gofor?

46.) 03 Dec 2023 10:41:04
I've stuck up for Lammers mostly but I can see why people can't take to him, even if he's being played out of position but surely people can see heat Cifuentes is a good buy at the price, in a new continent, had an injury and still early, there's a lot better players who struggled to settle initially and went on to be big players for us, he's also been brought in by a manager who was subsequently sacked so it can be unnerving. Not saying his performances have been stellar but he's not really had a run yet.



01 Aug 2023 14:39:35
Sakala is leaving. Rangers holding out for best fee. This comes from a very good source that knows the agent.


1.) 01 Aug 2023 15:23:30
Good luck to him if he goes, I don;t think he's good enough but there's no doubting that he brings 'something' to the team whenever he plays.

I'll be surprised if he goes to Saudi though (is it not prohibited to publicly practice any religion other than Islam? ), and that might make it tough for us/ him if no other team matches a Saudi transfer fee.

2.) 01 Aug 2023 15:31:30
will be a shame as we don't have many players who will take on defenses like him, or find pokets of space

putting too much on new players
what if they don't hit the ground running or settle into Scottish game

where with sakala we know he's capable n good for a goal, i would keep him as a viable back up player an impact sub


3.) 01 Aug 2023 16:13:33
Disappointing as he get goals for us, also feel he’s better than sima going on early signs.

4.) 01 Aug 2023 16:27:08
Sakala just isn't good enough. I've read all the opinions about him giving 100% and how he keeps running etc etc. He runs into defenders, scores goals almost by accident at times and misses too many chances for my liking. As for giving 100% that should be accepted as the normal for all players. Each and every one of us here would give 100% if we were selected but I don't expect many of us would be good enough! Time to move on.

5.) 01 Aug 2023 16:29:10
Blue dreamer Had to check ghe date on your post. August 1st not April 1st. Love Sakala as a person. Comes across as a good guy but he gets beat most times against defenders. Has great pace but misses more than he scores.

6.) 01 Aug 2023 16:33:02
As always, the manager lives and dies by his decisions he's seen Sakala more than any of us. If it means the funds raised goes on a defender then its worth doing imo.

Having said that colak, morelos and sakala scored about 45 goals between them so the new boys need to match that at least.

7.) 01 Aug 2023 16:34:00
I know the wee man has a lot of doubters on here but I think we will regret this. I give it 6 weeks of watching Sima and everyone will think we will have gave away a superior player to fit one that's not even ours. Hope I'm proved wrong and wish Fashion all the best if he does move.

8.) 01 Aug 2023 16:55:16
I said it with colak and i'm saying the exact same if sakala is sold, i think it could be a mistake but i hope to god it isn't ?.

9.) 01 Aug 2023 17:22:42
He’s not good enough but brings something to the team? If he wasn’t good enough he wouldn’t bring anything at all lol.

10.) 01 Aug 2023 17:37:32
I think its a mistake he's 1 we know offers real pace and can score goals its relying on the new players to get up and running straight away.

11.) 01 Aug 2023 18:04:09
Sws you can't keep everybody. So you would have roofe who you think is the best striker in thr country, dessers danilo sakala colak bit ott no? Rangers cannot afford these wages and urgently need players off the wage bill.

12.) 01 Aug 2023 18:25:26
Walter, Colak was in the treatment room too often with any little niggle, Sakala isn't good enough.

13.) 01 Aug 2023 19:06:53
People who are using Sakalas numbers as a reason to keep him are probably the same ones that said previous strikers high numbers weren’t good enough as they were scored against the lower teams in the league and not in the big games. I don’t who his goals have been against but Motherwell sticks out in my mind. I think most on here have a soft spot for him but unfortunately he isn’t good enough.

14.) 01 Aug 2023 19:09:26
He`s not good enough and we should be replacing him with better . The question is, is Sima better? Time will tell.

15.) 01 Aug 2023 20:00:01
defraz april first how
really don't get why you don't rate a goalscorer his stats n numbers are really good

so what my missing beale must see somthing in him
if he's played n scored 20
assited ten
scored against celtic yeah he misses
but least he's there too miss

he makes goood space n dose break down defences
we have no one else who can
kents away
n matondo ain't

i think he's a sellable asset
n we can't shift emdy else so that's why

but if him n colak both go

i do worry we are relying a lot on new guys hitting the ground running
n with the two them gone

wheres the back up if these guys like sellers n danlio don't do well or settle

have a back up mate
sakala we can rely on

honestly he ain't a bad player

i would rather have a player too miss some chances he creates n bag us 20 goals

than pay millions on somdy who doesn't.

16.) 02 Aug 2023 10:43:52
I agree, sakala is very useful to have around. Lose a lot of numbers if we goes. Over 20 goal involvements last season.

17.) 02 Aug 2023 15:50:40
If its true he didn't want to leave and made to train away from top team then I think it's disgraceful the way he's been treated.

Guy only ever gave his all.



11 Jul 2023 16:14:34
Probably a wind up but seen on follow follow that Leon Balogun is having a medical ? this simply can't be correct ?.


1.) 11 Jul 2023 18:48:56
Don’t believe it until CammyB’s sons taxi driving sports scientist Rangers employee confirms it. ?????.

2.) 11 Jul 2023 18:50:11
Should have been kept on for another year last season we were found out big time having to play sands and king. But yes I'd imagine with being another year older now we need to be looking at different options. Versatile player who knows the club and gave us a good shift right enough as a stop gap we could do worse.

3.) 11 Jul 2023 19:00:24
He's 35 year old no way should we be going down that road.

4.) 11 Jul 2023 19:03:27
35 year old rarely fit who's best days are long gone . No ty iv read the rumour and if true a lazy cheap option.

5.) 11 Jul 2023 19:48:35
I liked the guy but he had obvious injury problems in his last season with us . Last season he missed large chunks of QPR games through injury and would probably have been in the treatment room with Goldson, Davies, Souttar and Helander if he had stayed . I would be shocked if this rumour isn`t just a wind up.

6.) 11 Jul 2023 19:50:34
Can only be done if 4 criteria are met.

1. Panzo is also signed.
2. Davies is sold.
3. King is loaned out.
4. It's one year and one year only.

7.) 11 Jul 2023 19:55:46
Jzer definitely should have kept him, after all he managed 40% games at qpr.

More garbage.

8.) 11 Jul 2023 21:16:09
Could be possible on a low wage so we can loan out king doubtful but.

9.) 11 Jul 2023 21:19:22
King is injured for a long period so could be true.

10.) 11 Jul 2023 21:19:47
Well that's Leon king ruled out, Soutter has injury worries, look like the club may need +2 CBs regardless of what happens with Davies.

11.) 11 Jul 2023 21:27:15
Kings not going anywhere he's out for a long while gutted for the boy.

12.) 11 Jul 2023 21:28:30
Kings not going anywhere he's out for a long while gutted for the boy.

13.) 11 Jul 2023 21:30:21
It take him over Davies or souttar. Ones crap and other is the most injury prone I’ve ever seen. Maybe not saying much for him but he wasn’t a bad defender.

14.) 11 Jul 2023 21:37:11
Add leon king to the treatment table. CB should now be highest priority.

15.) 11 Jul 2023 21:54:12
King apparently got injured training.

16.) 11 Jul 2023 22:18:41
Leon over soutter they play the same amount a games and he’s 35 ??.

17.) 11 Jul 2023 22:20:16
If Balogun comes in, every young kid, should just leave, embarrassing.

18.) 11 Jul 2023 22:32:51
Real shame for the boy gutted for him.

19.) 11 Jul 2023 22:47:09
So King out, Soutar problematic with his Achilles issues, Goldson recently in a moonboot starting to pick up niggles, Davies injured?
Nothing to worry about defensively then?

20.) 11 Jul 2023 23:53:30
John is there any young kid in the current set up that is honestly a better option than Balogun.

21.) 12 Jul 2023 00:51:26
Yfeko looked a player but rough. Would definitely need a year at least out in loan.

22.) 12 Jul 2023 03:10:01
We already needed 2 cbs, now it’s 3,do our injuries ever stop? I’ve said this before jokingly, the way we are with injuries we would need about 4 players for each position, speechless.

23.) 12 Jul 2023 09:25:55
Have you ever thought that our management team don't think these young defenders are ready to be thrown into our first team yet ?.



09 Jul 2023 21:26:38
Hearing a rumour Dujon Sterling has injured an ACL?


1.) 09 Jul 2023 21:39:29
Here we go again!

2.) 09 Jul 2023 21:47:06
I would like to know if any of you guys are hearing anything regarding CB's being signed or looked at other than trusty, as that seems to have went quiet. I would like souttar and goldson partnership as my number 1 choice with current players but we need better than davies and king as back up, any ideas lads?

3.) 09 Jul 2023 22:36:19
If that is true we should hijac the Max Johnstone deal immediately ?‍♂️.

4.) 09 Jul 2023 22:57:35
So he flew out to Germany Friday and he's been diagnosed with ACL Sunday?

5.) 09 Jul 2023 23:24:00
I was thinking something was up because I couldn't see him in the training videos. Hopefully it's not true because he looks a solid player.

6.) 09 Jul 2023 23:51:50
It's not true.

7.) 10 Jul 2023 00:04:56
Surely not.

8.) 10 Jul 2023 00:30:43
Someone wrote earlier problem with his passport and he never flew out.

9.) 10 Jul 2023 01:31:55
The guy on rangers review video the other day mentioned in passing about Sterling injury but they weren’t allowed to say anything until a certain date so I think it might be true.

10.) 10 Jul 2023 05:08:20
Could be true think he had a ankle injury last year could be this again or this could be part of the reason why he might of done his acl hopefully not tho looks like decent back up for tav.

11.) 10 Jul 2023 05:41:50
Seen him in a training video last night.

12.) 10 Jul 2023 07:26:17
Sterling is fit and fine, Panzo will be here soon.

13.) 10 Jul 2023 11:07:25
Great news laudrup re Sterling.




BigDado's banter posts with other poster's replies to BigDado's banter posts


26 Nov 2023 15:35:22
I said a few weeks ago i will only believe we have turned the corner if we beat Aberdeen. Weve bottled it again as we are all used to. Celtic really are there for the taking but we have a very weak mentality throughout the squad.

Got out of jail with a penalty could have been worse but the chance to claw back points CANNOT be missed if you want to win the league.


1.) 26 Nov 2023 16:44:37
Not the mentality don’t have good enough players.



12 Nov 2023 22:55:52
A lot of chat about Todd Cantwell and his 'petulance'. Have a look at his twitter post showing the livi player kick out at him first. He is fast becoming what Morelos was once upon a time and being targetted every game to wind him up and put the boot in. Needs to be more savvy i agree but no wonder good players get fed up playing in our league.


1.) 13 Nov 2023 02:09:21
Seen that and agree with you. But he still gets needless yellows and is almost a banker at the bookies to pick up a yellow in a game.

2.) 13 nov 2023 06:02:22
can't blame the press fir a players stupidity. if you dive or get involved in nonsense you may get caught, thems the breaks.

3.) 13 Nov 2023 06:28:22
Cantwell although being targeted to try and getting him booked or worse need to rise above it, or he will find himself out of picture at ibrox as PC will not tolerate him, already been warned about this.

4.) 13 Nov 2023 07:58:51
Dado - Agreed re attention on him but good players always got targeted - Jinky J, W Henderson, Gazza, Coops et all - not everyone responds with a kick out or a shove- he should take the attention as a badge of honour and when he he scores or assists that should be enough to fuel his fire - not potentially missing crucial games for us when we need ALL our star players on the pitch- PC will sort this I hope?.

5.) 13 Nov 2023 08:40:29
Yeah the best way to get them back is to punish them with a goal instead of biting . He needs to calm down or he will become a liability.

6.) 13 Nov 2023 11:58:11
What also about the fouls he does dishes out.
If he gives it he takes it.

7.) 13 Nov 2023 12:56:34
Morning BigDado, I was one who criticised Tod for his petulance, but, I freely admit that he had good reason to be upset by Penrice's actions, I still think PC will have a quiet word to cool him down a bit, but, sometimes a player is not as effective if they don't have that fire in the belly, so Tod keep playing away Son, and just temper things a wee bit, and hopefully the Referees will take action if he is being targeted.

8.) 13 Nov 2023 13:01:46
BlueFloyd 2, bad choice of comparison mate, Gazza used to react all the time to getting fouled and was sent off once or twice for senseless acts of stupidity. Some great players have that in them and although Todd is nowhere near Gazzas level, he also is nowhere near his level of yellows and reds. I couldn`t understand why he reacted but seeing the pictures now, I do, all players are human and a lot of people would have reacted to studs on the shin. I`ve seen players sent off for less.

9.) 13 Nov 2023 14:32:28
I think refs in this country are stupid. It's like gattuso all over again.

Gattuso could charge from one side of the pitch to another and make a clean tackle but still get booked from ref simply for the speed and velocity he went in rather than if it was a clean tackle or not.

And it's the same with cantwell when you get refs that have never played the game this happens they don't want players charging about makes life more difficult for them.

Said this re Morelos some players like playing on the edge and Fired up I know Alfie missed some games due to this BUT was always at his best when he was in a scrap, Let Todd be Todd never thought Morelos was the same when he was told to Mellow out.

godor, its a safety thing, charging from one side if the pitch to the other and flying into a tackle can bring horrific consequences, clean tackle or not, uts incredibly dangerous,

Id rather Todd stayed as he is. He will draw far more fouls, pens and red cards than he will give away. We need more players with his drive and passion. But i'm sure he's been told how to channel it.

Ah Andy your back … first post after last Tues I see ?.

Yes ocassionally tav will win us the game mate but he was shocking today and he's lost 2 yards. And can't beat the first man at corners yet hits them all. There is more problems than him in the side but for me this should be his last season no doubt about it.


1.) 29 Oct 2023 19:57:38
I`m a fan of Tavs but he was awful today, that's probably the worst I`ve seen him play for us, but to be fair to him, he had the guts to take and score the penalty when I was screaming to give it to someone else and he produced one great cross for the winner . It kind of summed up his career in one game.

2.) 30 Oct 2023 09:47:09
Tav had the strengths of an attacking wing-back and that made him great. That with his ability to put away penalties has always meant he contributed a heck of a lot every season.

Everyone has an opinion on his defensive ability, I certainly have mine, but when he was quick down the wing and his crosses resulted in goals, nobody seemed to care.

As he gets older and slower though, what changes to accommodate him? Does he play further up the park to help with the fact he's slower, or does he stay back in more of a traditional RB role? A lot of people will point out the problem with the latter.

I like the guy, but I'm not 100% sure where he may fit in the team come the end of the season.

Just thinking about the manager search. Everyone is probably in agreement that we want a manager with "fast, attacking, pressing football" but do we
1. Have the strikers to play this way and who will finish the chances consistently?
2. Have defenders good enough to cope with being exposed due to said style of football?
3. Is there going to be much money for new manager to bring in players who can play this way? Considering we have a lack of pace and width.

I think the answer to all of the above is NO.
Whoever comes in i think needs to be experienced enough to recognise this. With good man management skills and authority to get the best out of what he's got for now.
And who won't be afraid to make tough decisions regarding the old guard who have been there through every failure. Otherwise its almost doomed to happen again and again.
Not sure who out the candidates fits this description?


1.) 04 Oct 2023 11:52:08
The new manager needs to have the funds to buy his own players but even if funds were available there is still the massive problem left behind by Beale, how do you remove his duff players from the payroll in order to make room for new additions.

2.) 04 Oct 2023 12:44:06
Yeah its a tough one. We are going back the way at an alarming rate. Simply down to poor recruitment over a number of years.

3.) 04 Oct 2023 12:53:48
If we are properly organised our defenders won`t get exposed by playing fast, attacking, pressing football . The aim is always to win the ball back high and in a few seconds . We may lose the odd goal but we will score enough that it is not crucial . On Saturday we should have been 2 up just on easy chances missed and when we lost Pittodrie we should have been 3 up at half time and then lost to a flukey goal. Even in the Celtic games recently where the defence have made a few mistakes, how many easy chances have we missed at the other end. We need a striker or two who can finish, Danilo might be one but we definitely need another .

4.) 04 Oct 2023 14:02:43
Guys, Michael Beale got the funds to buy his own choice players, so the Board have backed him, also Gio got a shed load od cash for players, Gio was different for me, I would've liked to see him get another season.

Bit of credit where its due. second half in particular some very good play and finishes in all 4 goals last night. None of which were as a result of hopeful crosses into the box from fullbacks which we are used to seeing over and over.
Maybe we have taken a step in the right direction mixing it up and focus on better movement and direct running. May have rode our luck against motherwell but 4 clean sheets in a row is impressive. When was the last time we did that? What a difference having a commanding goalie makes. Loved McGregor but he was definitely costing us too many goals last season.


1.) 28 Sep 2023 09:55:26
Massive difference in keepers. Far more assured with Butland in the goals. Greegs unreal shot stopper but very rarely came for balls. Butland also good with both feet.

2.) 28 Sep 2023 10:06:56
wasnt the 3rd goal was an OG lol

good build up play though.

3.) 28 Sep 2023 11:49:09
Your correct Ally, was cutback for Dessers so we were lucky the Livi player helped out lol!

4.) 28 Sep 2023 12:12:46
The ball from Barisic to Sima for the 3rd was inch perfect.

5.) 28 Sep 2023 12:38:15
Don’t you find it ironic? If Rangers score a goal that’s a bit iffy, the whole media come out against them? But if the opposition scores iffy goals against Rangers nothing is said or “ that’s football “? The players can only play in and do their best, it’s up to the dodgy ref etc to do the rest. I hate to be dramatic but by watching the games up to now, there seems to be an agenda against Rangers, maybe it’s just me?

Danilo is starting to look every bit as bad as the other 2.

Good news, hopefully uses the dutch and Belgian markets instead of lower England. Is there any update on the Graeme Souness situation anyone?

Both fall into the category of injury prone. Get rid ASAP. Regardless of ability i have no time for that anymore. On a side note we could sign kyle walker and tav would still play every min of every game.

Would really like cifu to get a run in the team before anything like that. I do like Sima but cifu a lot of potential as well. Pains me that ryan jack still gets preferred over others.

Correct Walter. My concern is they usually let us down in these types of games. But win will do absolute wonders ahead of january window and hopefully some solid additions.

If we were to top the group we go into the last 16 that's a big incentive. Conference would be a disappointment but maybe we could go on a run to the final in that.

Hes played 72 mins of football since he left us. That answers any questions. He will be playing in the polish 3rd division soon.
