Lot of folk missing the bigger picture here blaming Gerrard. It's the players mentality that's the problem. Kent gave it away after the Braga game in his interview. Said they feel better when they are the underdogs (which we rarely are) . People will say that's Gerrards fault for signing them but they have the ability. We just need another "born winner" or two in the team. The only ones we have would be McGregor and Davis.


1.) 02 Mar 2020 07:26:20
Davis has been poor last few weeks.

2.) 02 Mar 2020 08:11:07
McCorie and Docherty are born Rangers men but not been given a proper chance.

3.) 02 Mar 2020 09:18:52
EB he's been poor, like a lot of them since Parkhead. If the reports are true that he's lost the dressing room then he should walk.

4.) 02 Mar 2020 09:42:08
give it a rest 1974 the only ones who should walk are the weak lazy players in that team.

5.) 02 Mar 2020 10:53:08
Stick by the manager he will get it right the players he signed would never have come to ibrox if it wasn’t for him what I will say is we need a solid center mid with dig and make him captain we miss leadership in the middle of the park when the going gets tough I have nothing against tav by any means he’s a great player who’s lost his confidence but I don’t think he’s the right man for the captaincy + it would take a bit of pressure off of him and let him get on with playing his game we will come good again guys I have no doubt about that. 🇬🇧.

6.) 02 Mar 2020 11:02:41
Let’s get behind SG. I think he will learn even more about some of these players who have let him down and we will see a wiser manager next season.

7.) 02 Mar 2020 11:18:05
Sweep 1 I’m a born Rangers man but it’s not me who they want it’s a Butcher or a Gough or even a Hurrlock someone who will let players know when they are not pulling their weight nice if he was home grown but not necessarily the only option Butcher was one of our greates captains we need two or three born winner who care where they are from roll on Wednesday night we keep building.

8.) 02 Mar 2020 12:19:29
He will get it right, he never last season, he hasn't this season, and next season is 10iar if they win tht. We are damned if we do and damned if we don't now. Its to late if you ask me. We need to rebuild again. That last rebuilding job isn't up for a title fight simple as tht.

9.) 02 Mar 2020 13:03:57
If gerard has lost the dressing room why are we performing in europe? . I can't see him quiting he's a winner and was obviously hurting like the rest of us after another poor display. He will get it right.

10.) 02 Mar 2020 13:17:10
Davis has probably been our poorest player since xmas. we are at a crossroads here where either the manager goes or a lot of the players go.
For me the players have had their chance now and have shown they don't have the mentality to win here.
The positives to take out of our good euro campaign is that we can move these players on for fees now instead of paying them off.

11.) 02 Mar 2020 13:21:38
@car d blue. So what players are you referring to? SG bought them and keeps playing them. If there "lazy" as you say name them?

12.) 02 Mar 2020 13:08:10
Look it's got to the point where unfortunately we aren't the same team we was 20 years ago. As much as every single rangers fan and player, staff member doesn't want to see 10iar it cannot be our priority to stop it. We need to get rid of all the dead weight and bring in players that will die for the club and have the ability. We need characters in that dressing room. It's clear that after Gerrard's interview he is just utterly disappointed with the players.

13.) 02 Mar 2020 13:32:10
1974 if every team had your kind of support . no manager would last a month . As supporters we need to be a little more robust and stand strong when things go wrong . and show a bit of faith . not capitulate showing a jelly like mentality and will.
Stevie Gerrad will be one of the top ten or even five managers in the future . nark my words

Walk. what a joke . and who to come in . McInnes lol
You say he should do the decent thing . ? Well I think ( ( my opinion ) that certain posters should do the decent thing and get behind manager . team and club when face with adversity . like we did fir ally. 50,000 home support in the lowest division. That’s what it’s about . We will come good.

14.) 02 Mar 2020 14:45:32
Brilliant post Molsgoals.

15.) 02 Mar 2020 16:34:34
Like him mols but he will never, ever be a top manager. Top managers can adapt to situations during games by changing formation, being proactive with subs. Stevie has no idea how to change things when it's not going right mate, that's not a dig it's just the truth. Wants to play this 4/ 3/ 3 with the 2 inverted wingers as thsts whst liverpool play imo. Hoping it will get noticed if that job ever becomes available but he's a million miles away from being good enough for liverpool in sll honestly. If we play 4/ 3/ 3 again next time out then we deserve all we get.

16.) 02 Mar 2020 16:37:11
Thank you Molsgoals for speaking some sense amidst a swirl of nonsense from many on here.

17.) 02 Mar 2020 17:29:23
Here we . Stevie changed it against braga and turned a 2.0 into a 3.2!. and he has changed it before and it worked . Ok he is not changing it every week, but he is learning, and he prefers to give played benefit of the doubt to try and play through their bad patches . Like he did with Arfield . ( master class ) . I know it’s disappointing because we got a glimpse of nirvana, before the door was slammed shut in our faces . but we are not far away and Stevie will get us back there . He needs our backing though.

18.) 02 Mar 2020 17:31:26
Bankie . jaws . we are not all doubters . I do believe the rank and file are behind Stevie and we will see that on weds.

19.) 02 Mar 2020 18:25:08
SG only changed it against Braga because of an injury to Borna. If he wasnt injured no way he would have made the change he did.
But now he has seen he can change it for a positive outcome I hope he will learn from it and continue to do so when needed.

20.) 02 Mar 2020 18:46:35
Molsgoals great post. Remember when our supporters followed the GERS through thick and thin.

21.) 02 Mar 2020 19:27:09
I get what you're saying john, and mols. Uou guys know I'm not one to slaughter gerrard, I've always said we need to let a manager build as we at some point need continuity, but I also agree with dome of the other guys points, as in how long do we keep accepting the same formation and performances domestically? We need to get going soon as unfortunately, at any level of footbsll, the manager is ultimately responsible.

22.) 02 Mar 2020 20:39:18
As Southend says how has the boss lost the dressing room when they can turn in fighting displays like the Braga ties? Do we really want to go backbto the days when the 4th ranked team from Luxembourg sends us out of Europe in the first preliminary round, or when we can't sleep in the run up to an OF game in case we get humped 4 or 5 nil? Or we go to Tynecastle and lose 4-1? The boss has made mistakes, of course he has, but some of our football this season has been brilliant and I have confidence that he will turn things around. Might be too late for this season but I hope he is given another crack. He is still learning and will get it right.

23.) 02 Mar 2020 20:54:11
Herewego my point is not confined to gerrard, our fans wax lyrical about a player one game and slag him to f the next game, then make him a hero next game to slag him following game.
I’m sure you get the picture.

24.) 02 Mar 2020 23:46:01
Jctheger. Stevie could have brought Halliday on for bona but he didn’t . he went for the jugular .
Too many people not seeing the bigger picture . if it dosnt suit the present agenda then its discarded

To be honest I am not overly worried Bankie . jaws . John etc . because Stevie will turn it around again . and the same doubters who loved him before but now want him out, will be on waxing lyrical about him again . west of Scotland mentality .! its a gimme.

25.) 03 Mar 2020 00:12:05
Agree john too many get too carried away too easily when on a good run. This isn't a small blip the now tho mate this is a major bottle job for 2nd season in a row after xmas.

26.) 03 Mar 2020 11:10:41
Tinman and Southend, it's people like you with blind faith who are a danger to the club. You probably had the attitude that everything would be fine as we walked into liquidation. I'm not saying that sg won't come good nor am I asking for him to be sacked or walk. I'm just getting sick of people telling me that things will work out without giving any evidence or opinions as to why they think that. It just comes across as you hoping things will work out. No more please.

27.) 03 Mar 2020 13:36:45
STYAD, Nothing blind about my faith I can assure you. I’ve supported the club for over 45 years and have seen it all. For the first time in a long time we are making real progress on and off the pitch.

28.) 03 Mar 2020 22:50:25
Evidence STY ., last 16 of europa league . horsing the unwashed at the pig . very unlucky not to win cup
Eh . not able to get a ticket for home games . Lemon saying they need to work out a way to beat the mighty . after 10 years and all the thumping as the unwashed manager says that? I would say that’s progress.



14 Nov 2019 01:12:21
Everyone saying Morelos will leave in summer. Seems likely, but have a think about if all goes well and he does help us win the league. The carrot of Champions League football May be enough to keep him another season. He's not going to get that unless he goes to a top four team in England.


1.) 14 Nov 2019 07:38:55
Or any other big club in Europe, there is very little chance indeed that he will be at ibrox next season, unless he is playing against us.

2.) 14 Nov 2019 17:54:45
I believe he will still be here next season, his domestic situation is settled and he knows he will struggle to get a bigger English club that plays regularly in Europe. If we win the league and qualify for the Champions League, I'm even more confident he'll be here for another year.

3.) 14 Nov 2019 21:55:59
His misses is about to have a kid so that might be a reason for him to stay, might not want to uproot her.

4.) 15 Nov 2019 01:14:57
Morelos' ambition has been to play in England, not the UCL. BUT that ambition may change should Rangers secure that next summer. But we just can't match the wages the PL will offer so there's that.

5.) 15 Nov 2019 09:09:24
He will be sold in summer, we cannot allow January but there is also the chance of serious injuries, and he’s too valuable, don’t think there’s any doubt he won’t be here next season.

6.) 15 Nov 2019 12:39:33
I’m sorry Tomster but there is always doubt unless you are Alfredo himself and know you are leaving for a fact. He may enjoy working under Gerrard and life in Scotland.

7.) 15 Nov 2019 16:19:16
Very true mate: but imo it’s highly unlikely a Colombian who would maybe attract major clubs on the sunny continent or the epl will be offered massive remuneration and set his family up for life will prefer to stay in Scotland, in fact I think he can’t wait for the offers, although I do believe he loves Rangers but love is sometimes not enough.

8.) 18 Nov 2019 19:36:55
He is away in the summer 100% anyone who thinks differently needs to stay off the drugs.
Let’s just hope we don’t let him go in January.



14 Aug 2019 13:08:44
Anyone know the deal with young Hastie? Is he going out on loan? Hasn't even sniffed the bench since after pre season.


1.) 14 Aug 2019 13:29:22
We've only played a handful of games.

2.) 14 Aug 2019 13:44:29
I would think it depends on the situations with Murphy and Kent. If Murphy goes and we don’t bring Kent in then I would think he stays as a squad player. I’m more concerned about spending 4m on a CB who in my opinion shouldn’t be put anywhere near the team just now as we are doing well with the CB pairing we have. Money could have been better spent IMO.

3.) 14 Aug 2019 14:02:44
There's just some folk you can never please.

4.) 14 Aug 2019 14:07:37
Flip side. Katic Goldso injured. Oh we don't have a cb. get real man.

5.) 14 Aug 2019 15:35:53
Gerrard said he would be taking his time introducing Helander to the first team when he signed him. Chill out.

6.) 14 Aug 2019 16:18:48
Why play helander for no reason. He was brought in to improve our defence. Through the competition he has done that. When one has a dip in form he will get his chance.

7.) 14 Aug 2019 16:48:40
We have a long season if we progress to the group stage so having 4 cbs who are all good is only a good thing. Competing to start does wonders for a players ability and we have god competition in a number of positions this season.

8.) 14 Aug 2019 17:03:05
3 mill on helander! SG says katic is playing well so what's the problem? c'mon lighten up a bit . look at it from the view of what is katic worth if he continues to keep playing well and keeping helander out?

9.) 14 Aug 2019 18:21:06
And it gives us the option to play 3 at the back. Or if a big offer comes in for Katic in the next couple of years we don’t need to panic about replacing him. Anyway good luck to Hastie if he does go on loan 😂.

10.) 14 Aug 2019 18:50:03
Im glad we have been able to help Hastie with his bench sniffing fetish, I really hope that's him cured.



20 Jun 2019 02:34:47
Kent signing imminent. My source is. Mikael Lustig told me at the petrol station heading out of toon.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 05:32:27
Good one Blue89.Lustig was staying at celtic, 'till he heard ryan kent was coming back to rangers. Kent absolutely terrorised him. Wonder if there was any truth in the ibrox old firm game in december last year, that lustig said to brenda rodgers at half time while pleading to come off, brenda he said, "i honestly don't know if i'm Mikael Lustig or Michael Caine"! . Kenty gave him an absolute roasting in 3 of the old firm games.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 07:13:00
Yeah its disappointing Lustig is leaving as he was awful and a real weak link .

3.) 20 Jun 2019 09:01:20
Was Lord Lucan at the petrol station as well Blue 89?



04 Jan 2019 21:16:46
Is anyone else underwhelmed by the potential signing of Jordan Jones? He's played over 100 games and only has something like 9 goals and 22 assists. I feel he'd be like another MOH. Would much rather give the chance to Middleton whose almost scored as many goals and provided assists as Jones has and he's only played a handful of games for us. It also makes me think that we wouldn't be going for Kent permanently. We've also got Murphy to come back as well.

Kamara on the other hand would be a cracking free signing. We need a box to box midfielder like him.


1.) 05 Jan 2019 00:01:05
Decent age, current international, good value on a pre contract. Currently playing in a team that is defying all odds to challenge. I would trust SG as he must see something of interest.

2.) 05 Jan 2019 01:19:10
I don’t agree that being young and an international means you’re a good player. Lee Hodson springs to mind. I trust Stevie G and hopefully if he does sign he proves me wrong.

3.) 05 Jan 2019 01:23:45
Blue89 you called it right, I'm underwhelmed by Jones and Kamara is a far more intriguing signing.

4.) 05 Jan 2019 10:53:39
Does us signing Jones on pre contract mean we won’t be signing Kent permenantly.

5.) 05 Jan 2019 11:57:08
Give the kid a chance (Jones) remember a few teams in the English championship wanted him, Aston Villa, Leeds United, and some other team I read, but he turned them down to sign for Rangers, he plays for NI but he’s a born and breed English man, so to pick Rangers over those other teams gives him a few browny points in my book.

6.) 05 Jan 2019 13:28:36
'Kid' Ulsterman? He's 24, he's been an international for two years, he's made just a little progress in that time and the other clubs being after him were no more than speculation. First time I've ever questioned a signing but we'll wait and see.

7.) 05 Jan 2019 15:49:56
He’s a kid to me, but we’ll wait and see,

8.) 05 Jan 2019 18:41:46
So with those stats at killie. He either scores or sets up a goal every 3 games. Then he comes to us who he supports and was dying to sign for. Let's see what happens.

9.) 06 Jan 2019 01:51:24
Jones will probably go on loan next season decent free signing if it doesn’t work out in a year or 2 we move him on for a modest fee it’s the modern football way.

8.) 06 Feb 2021 09:33:13
Maybe certain posters should debate different opinions constructively instead of calling others tims, haters, apologists, brigades, learn the rules, can't you read or whatever other digs. Then other posters wouldn't have to slap them down. 👍.

And btw, the 7th game would be Celtic at the piggery.
No chance of them winning all their games though 😒.

We are all Neil Lennon. bar two that are not Neil Lennon 😂.


1.) 20 Jan 2021 06:48:30
I was inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt re, his mental health, until he brought st Johnston and Hamilton into the equation

That is despicable, especially considering he never said a word after winning at Perth, using the same dressing room, no other club has said a word, only Celtic,

2.) 20 Jan 2021 07:31:48
They are an apology for a supposedly big club who's supposed to show the way! From top to bottom they've been a total embarrassment, the way they've handled all this 👎The never lose fairly into the bargain its the same old story with that lot, 'ALWAYS CHEATED, NEVER DEFEATED'!

3.) 20 Jan 2021 07:44:17
What a season it's been so far. Never did I think we would be so far ahead but best of all I never thought there would be a daily comedy roadshow to go with it. A total collapse from top to bottom and it just keeps getting better. So I must say thanks Neil Lennon for making this happen and you've made lots of folk very happy during these hard times. Top man cheers.

4.) 20 Jan 2021 09:32:15
Someone had said he looked like he might try and have a pop at us and then seemed to bottle it at the last second.

By going after St Johnstone he thought he was picking an easy target. Truth is he was challenged on specifics and had one so came out with any old guff. Bully boy, despicable behaviour.

5.) 20 Jan 2021 09:46:19
It is what we all knew anyway. They are an excuse for a football club, totally lacking in class and decorum. I take great comfort in knowing that every morning I wake up I can thank the lord I am not one of them 👍❤💙.

6.) 20 Jan 2021 09:58:25
That mob as a club, will NEVER be in our league in every way 👌🇬🇧We are the establishment, within scottish football, always have been and they know it and that's why they always have this massive jealous streak towards us 😁.

Alfie is the clubs top scorer in Europe, better than McCoist. So to say he’s not consistent is absolute nonsense. He’s scored against YoungBoys, Feyenoord, Porto, Warsaw, Poznan, Antwerp, etc etc.
I think you’re basing his consistency on his goal tally this season which isn’t fair because he’s playing a different role and has been offering even more to the team as a whole in that role.
The thing that annoys me is that you’re always quick to jump on Alfies back yet Kent can do no wrong in your eyes when his form was rotten for months.
They’re both great players and both our players that were lucky to have. Alfie will be sorely missed when he moves on, unfortunately I think that’s when you’ll realise how important he is for us.

100% slimjim, blessing in disguise that Tav and Kent won’t be available I think. Hope Barisic uses it as motivation to get his spot back. McRorie done well for Livi when I seen him so not too concerned as our defense is obviously at a higher level than what theirs is.

Ferguson couldn’t lace Kamaras boots.
The two players we cannot afford to lose in my opinion are Kamara and Alfie.
I would say sell Tav and Kent of offers came in.
