Murty has done well with this crop of players but when things go wrong he can not change things to get us the results needed.
This is no fault of his own the board have fling him under the bus they have to take responsibilty for the mess we find ourselves in we where crying out for a experianced manager and they go for murty as he is the cheapeast option for them.
If they get this manager choice in the summer wrong then they should be packing there bags for me we need go all out to get the best manager we can.


1.) 19 Mar 2018 13:20:09
Who would you want as the next permanent rangers manager Craig8688?

2.) 19 Mar 2018 13:57:14
I would like to see the club show ambiuion and target either marco silva or gio van bronckhorst

3.) 19 Mar 2018 16:01:50
And when it all goes wrong recall Murty?

Get behind the man he can only work with what he’s got.

Look at the resources the other lot have to call on we have nothing let me that and it shows

4.) 19 Mar 2018 16:33:47
i agree with you murty has done really well and afterall he is a youth coach
but i still rather have the team as it is just now rather than it was with all the bampots we had running it

5.) 19 Mar 2018 16:58:43
Yes the team has played a bit better under Murty but and they are big buts if Aberdeen win their game in hand I know it's an if they are in second place, we have lost seven games at home this season a record and Murty has been in charge for five of those, for me simply not good enough he is a youth coach who has been thrown below the bus by this board and it hasn't worked, fans are so desperate for success they cling to everything, Murty is great with the press, I could listen to him all day talking football well for me I couldn't care less if he never spoke I want success, I spend a lot of money following Rangers and it's just not good enough the board must find investment bring in an experienced manager who can boss a dressing room, the team cheered when we got Celtic in cup that should never have happened they should shut up and do their talking on the pitch or the big question is can they?

6.) 19 Mar 2018 18:37:53
Have to disagree with a few of the things he has said during press conferences. He was wrong to play down the assault which ended Ryan Jacks season the tackle was scandalous. Also thanking Brown for his contribution to Scotland was one of the most cringeworthy things I’ve ever heard. Our home record under him is poor and he has shown a great deal of naivety in the last 2 games. Should go back to being the u20 coach

7.) 19 Mar 2018 19:27:44
We need to get behind the man and stop shooting him down after less than a season. Its not his fault the team lack creativity against defensive sides. As for the celtic game, poor defending cost us. We should have won that game. The only reason brenda flung on an attacker was because his teams can't defend. We r missing ryan jack, mccrorie, dorrans and bates. Three r key midfielders and one a key defender. If we bring in better faster centre halfs we would reduce our goal loss by ten easy. If we had beat celtic, you could have all said give the man a contract. he's cut the gap between them and us massively this season. If we finish a strong second and put them oot the vup there will be no complaints here

8.) 19 Mar 2018 20:21:46
Murty is too nice and he hasn't enough experience for a huge job like Gers, I wouldn't have windass in the team, he goes walkabout to often, but on Saturday they all went walkies.

9.) 19 Mar 2018 22:34:06
The reason we lack creativity is solely down to murty. We have creative players in the team. Tavernier, John, Goss, windass, Murphy, candias, morelos, Cummings are all attacking creative players and tbf with a tactically astute manager would flourish. The fact we are the leagues top scorers shows this to an extent however his negative formations and style of play hinders these players. How often have we seen long balls lumped forward for no reason at all?

Unfortunately the buck stops with murty

10.) 20 Mar 2018 19:36:33
Giovanni Von Bronkhorst all day long. We should go all out to get him signed up for next season

I fear if we don’t show ambition and intent on the Managerial front, many will not renew their season tickets, which means less money to spend on quality players

Season Ticket renewals will be out in the next 4-6 weeks. We need to show some ambition. I like Murty but he’s not the man to take us to the next level. 🇬🇧



11 Mar 2018 20:21:40
For us to move to another level in the summer we need target a tough takling cdm with good strengh
at least one good cb to patner mccorie maybe even 2
And one quality cam that can unlock a defence
These are key area for us to strenghen and would also consider gk postion if we can cash in on fod


1.) 11 Mar 2018 21:11:59
We've got a good young tough tackling central defensive midfielder in greg docherty mate!

2.) 11 Mar 2018 23:14:09
No he is a box to box player and f you had ever played the game to any form of level you would know that. We need an Ian Ferguson type player.

3.) 11 Mar 2018 23:15:23
i would like to see a player in the same mould as mo edu tough strong quick and won't get out muscled in cdm role docherty is more box to box

4.) 12 Mar 2018 01:04:53
We are Glasgow rangers we need to be at the level where we don't need a Cdm that's a negative approach in my opinion!
We were shocking in the second half today it was actually embarrassing. But wes sold the second and if u think otherwise then u really don't have a clue about football!

5.) 12 Mar 2018 07:33:42
Can’t agree we need a player who can stand up to Brown he bullied our midfield and as for second goal you need to look at our CBs they both missed a long ball from brown leaving the keeper exposed

6.) 12 Mar 2018 09:12:37
@frayzul all the top teams use a DMF just look at casemiro at real, busquets at barca, matic at man utd, kante at chelsea, fernandinho at man city and so on. with a real DMF it gives the rest of the midfielders more initiative to go forward. that's why a lot of the better teams get away with playing 2 AMFs in midfield so how you can say its a negative i don't know

7.) 12 Mar 2018 13:55:45
Thikaboutit bang on. Alves should have dropped deeper when there was no pressure on the ball on his side and then Cardosa, who tried to get on the cover should have made sure he stopped Dembele. The goalie had no chance for the first goal after it clips Bates, however was Goss's fault for getting brushed aside in midfield by Rodic. Goss was also slack for the winner as he can't let the player come inside. Their finishes were all quality mind but we shot ourselves in the foot. We are on the way back and getting closer by the day. Morelos is getting slaughtered for his miss but he played a great game. Cummings was class when he came on so there are lots of positives. They know we are coming. Dunbar Blue

8.) 12 Mar 2018 17:43:08
Just watched the highlights the and to be honest Morelos hassled the celtic defence all day cardoso had another bad game and the keepers positioning is always suspect But if u watch Morelos again I is a cracking player just his finishing that let's him down gutted to see the ugly mob celebrate at end

9.) 12 Mar 2018 19:21:44
DSG in my observation Morelos scores the hard ones and misses the easy ones his header a few weeks ago again st Johnston shows this he had no right scoring that header but misses headers from 4 yards out right in front of the goal.

His chance against them yesterday anyone else on the park would have scored it was harder to miss that chance than it was to score it.

we need a fat sally or someone like that to come in and work with him to work in his thought process when he has easy chances there had to be something in his mind that blocking him scoring these goals.

10.) 13 Mar 2018 07:35:05
Or a kris boyd mate! There's one thing this guy does, scoring goals, guaranteed! He's a terrific finisher!

11.) 13 Mar 2018 15:41:29
We don't need a tough tackling dmf. We have ryan jack, Hopefully we get Cummings on a permanent along with Murphy and maybe goss. We need a strong ch that can lead, a rb for cover, another cf and attacking midfielder that doesn't go missing when needed. I do think we'll probably need to get rid of quite a few players before any of this happens though.

12.) 13 Mar 2018 18:50:47
Bluechef, i also hope we get both jason cummings and sean goss permanently! As for jamie murphy, who is the best signing of the lot, which i did say on these very pages when we signed our january signings, that murphy was our best signing! He becomes our player automatically, at the end of the season! So no worry over him mate, he's ours, permanently when the deal kicks in, once the season finishes! Jamie murphy and daniel candeias our both wide men, were our best 2 players against celtic on sunday there! Murphy was causing there defenders massive problems, especially in the first half! Murphy is very direct, with very quick feet! Superb signing!

13.) 14 Mar 2018 11:43:29
I might be wrong but Goss was brought in for cover as Dorrans and jack are long term absentees. not to mention Rossiter.

14.) 14 Mar 2018 12:00:03
Supercooper, Murphy doesn't just become our player automatically at the end of the season, your partly right but We have to pay Brighton first, probably with some of the season ticket money then the deal kicks in.



08 Mar 2018 00:13:37
Just seen a article that said murray is considering investing in our club once again what do fellow fans think of this
for me if he can bring serious money to the table then it should be considered


1.) 08 Mar 2018 01:07:53
Something just doesn’t feel right about it.

Im thinking most fans will see passed the short term gain of investment from Murray’s pockets and remember the utter state we were left in because of him.

He sold the club for a pound because he knew the tax case was coming. I blame him for Celtics dominance, he sold our club to Craig Whyte, who was always intending not to pay the players tax and put the club into administration. Murray started he ball rolling.

I say find other investors. Wouldn’t want him involved in decision making if the going gets tough fanancially, end up sold down the river again.

2.) 08 Mar 2018 06:46:40
I say jump at it, I promise you there was more to the £1 sale than meets the eye and it was white and green that put us in this position. If you sell your house and the new owners use it for criminal purposes are you in any way responsible? Murray done nothing wrong apart from selling to the wrong person.

3.) 08 Mar 2018 06:58:09
Think it's been proven that SDM actually took money out our club the last time he never invested. He also cherry pick the profitable bits of the club and took them. The bit that sticks in my throat was the EBTs he actually took money each year running this now illegal tax dodge, and when caught jumped ship and left us with that imbecile Whyte. The conman Whyte took the blame for years of Murray overspending and personal under investment.

4.) 08 Mar 2018 07:18:16
My gut reaction to reading this is that I don’t have any issue with Murray returning, he may carry a heavy burden as to what’s happened over the years and Murray was in the midst of financial Timplosion himself at the time he sold, I think his wealth had shrunk from £700m to under £100m and businesses all across him empire were folding, with a great deal of hindsight he should have became the biggest creditor and then put Rangers into administration like Motherwell did a couple of times etc. Anyway I know many will disagree and not want him near but I’m just going with my gut.

5.) 08 Mar 2018 08:25:18
I think at the end of the day David Murray tried his best in the beginning he just let it all get away from him and made a complete balls up of it. I’m sure he feels responsible for what happened. CW didn’t have best intentions at heart, and maybe DM wants to put money back in as a way to start making up for it.

6.) 08 Mar 2018 09:45:16
I wouldn’t have a problem with Murray investing because let’s face it guys not one of us complained at the height of our success and like the other poster said it just got completely out of control and I’m sure he is hurting with the way it all ended and the complete shambles that was left, and I’m sure there is no way he’d go down that route again.

7.) 08 Mar 2018 09:46:13
sir david murray welcome back if true all the shambles that went on with ebts etc ain't all down to one person anyone who had ebts offerd ebts etc etc accepted ebts etc etc are just as bad as who ever came up with the idea to screw our club over and put it in the mess it is in


8.) 08 Mar 2018 10:06:49
If David Murray is serious about investing in our great club then let him do it through Club 1872 then we can judge his intentions from there.

9.) 08 Mar 2018 12:47:09
Whilst I'm sure most would welcome fresh investment I have to agree with BearMode91. I wouldn't welcome Murrays money after the state he left us in.

10.) 08 Mar 2018 12:42:13
Murray was a definite chancer. What bits did he Cherry-pick?

11.) 08 Mar 2018 12:43:58
I wouldn't trust Murray with a pound of my money.

12.) 08 Mar 2018 12:47:31
You can take your money DM and stick it where the sun don't shine, His fault for what he did to our club.

13.) 08 Mar 2018 13:40:55
Martin Bain was the one who dealt with player contracts so surely he should some of the blame too

14.) 08 Mar 2018 14:46:06
Murray sold Rangers reluctantly as due to the recession his other businesses were struggling Rangers were not the only club to use Tax dodges his millions got us 9 in a row and so many good memories if he wants to invest let him we all deserve a second chance

15.) 08 Mar 2018 16:10:56
it was all loans DM used not 1 penny of his own dosh serial liar yes we all enjoyed the 9IAR but we knew nothing of were funding was coming from loans.

16.) 08 Mar 2018 16:37:03
Murray started the ball rolling in our downfall. If he hadn't sanctioned these EBT contracts there wouldn't have been Whyte, Green and all the other rubbish that followed. I cannot believe anybody here saying he did nothing wrong? He caused the whole mess for Christ sake!

17.) 08 Mar 2018 16:45:52
We went under because craig whyte didn't pay the 9 million odd to the tax man he pocketed it. He didn't have the funds to get us out he lied and murray was so desperate to offload us he didn't do his homework him. We know he's not afraid to put his money where his mouth is and it would certainly ruffle a few feathers across the clyde that's for sure. If he brings serious financial clout again and he has serious backers within his group then why not.

18.) 08 Mar 2018 16:50:40
Too many short memories, he should never drag himself near our club again. If he wants to make up for what he done leave a big basket of cash on the door step n away back to the shaddows.

19.) 08 Mar 2018 16:51:50
I'm dumbfounded that anyone would consider allowing him anywhere near us again. Yes he gave us some great memories, but the last 6 years would never have happened if wasn't for his gross mismanagement! I don't want Naismith back anymore, but most of you won't forgive him for a misguided press conference that he has since apologised for.

I don't recall Murray making any apologies for what he's put us through! I'm starting to think some of you would sell your grannies for the right price. Given the timing of this 'report' it seems to be an effort to distract, divide us.

20.) 08 Mar 2018 17:21:26
I can assure you all that when Murray sold us for £1 he actually saved us. Remember EBTs were legal and politicians were using them.

21.) 08 Mar 2018 18:52:43
if murray wants to make amends let him put in 20 mil which dave king did as a concerned fan and have no connection to running the show, that would do for me.

22.) 08 Mar 2018 19:54:33
BigMarv82, I'd sell both my grannies and my misses and her grannies and my dog to stop the mhanky mob and get us to 10 in a row lol

23.) 09 Mar 2018 15:31:19
As much as the 9 in a row years were amazing, Murray threw us under a bus to save his other businesses. Can't believe for a minute that as a successful business man, Murray allowed himself to be duped/ conned by Whyte.

24.) 09 Mar 2018 17:16:09
Struth1872 that's simply not true he was thrown under a bus by lloyds bank and sold us for a pound to someone who said he would pay the bank, which he did using money from ticketus the rest is history, Murray saved us from the banks.



07 Jan 2018 00:54:01
So murphy is signed up on loan with garuntee we can sign him in the summer as long as we can get the funds together


1.) 08 Jan 2018 00:25:38
So would you rather we payed the money and got into more debt or wait 6months and see if he settles at the club then pay it yeah your option of paying upfront seem better not



03 Jan 2018 12:51:25
we are ment to be close to deal for sean goss ex man unitied players now playing for qpr
plays in midfield and defence 22 year old


1.) 03 Jan 2018 12:56:13
Just seen that in the paper but never heard of him, anybody know anything about him rather than just wikipedia

2.) 03 Jan 2018 13:12:53
seems to play more as a defensive mid and seems to pass the ball well
Hopefully the lad does well
but i have to wonder if murty wants him or is another of mark allen signings

3.) 03 Jan 2018 13:46:02
These are the names coming through now that were presented to mciness from Allen. Mciness was presented with 12 names and rejected all of them, the next day he knocked us back.

4.) 03 Jan 2018 14:04:21
Why so many unknown gambles? There are very good and very capable young players in Scotland who show great potential but we steer clear of them and take punts on guys no one has heard of, and we couldn’t possibly scout as they aren’t playing at any sort of level with their existing club. I am in no way judging the boy from QPR’s ability as have never seen him, but frustrated that we seem to never get off this roundabout of risk.

I’m disillusioned by the Director of Football strategy so far

5.) 03 Jan 2018 14:11:05
The director of football is trying to get a caliber of player in that will help us to 2nd place without spending to much money, simple. Mciness wanted players to win the league so it's costs more that's why he's not in the hot seat. Maybe the board have admitted defeat for the season and maybe go again next season but that's just a guess

6.) 03 Jan 2018 14:21:33
I’m willing to give the guy a go, Declan John was a similar signing and has done well so far (lots more to come hopefully) if we can get a decent option to buy on him and he does well then we have a versatile young player in the squad, makes sense to be picking up bargains where possible with little risk, I suppose it all depends on the terms of the loan!

7.) 03 Jan 2018 15:13:54
He's signed.

8.) 03 Jan 2018 15:28:04
Confirmed on the Gers website.

9.) 03 Jan 2018 15:29:08
So far I am completely underwhelmed with the players we are being linked with! What the hell has mark Allen brought to the table!

10.) 03 Jan 2018 15:41:41
hopefully he has more energy on the park than in his interview 😂

11.) 03 Jan 2018 15:43:46
What a load of rubbish mkloyal

12.) 03 Jan 2018 15:44:18
Give the guy a chance, he can only work within the budget presented to him. The boy might actually be a decent player, I remember similar comments about Hyndman last year as well. The argument that there is very capable young players in Scotland is nonsense. We have NO permanent manager either so long term deals or signings are unlikely

13.) 03 Jan 2018 16:20:29
Mkloyal is Aberdeen going to spend the money McInnes stayed at Aberdeen because it was the safer option. Goss is a sensible signing till the end of the season as cover and who knows he might turn out to be another Declan but let’s give him a go

14.) 03 Jan 2018 16:27:15
unless its pre contracts every scottish team we negotiate with has shown they have no desire to do business with us i find this a strange signing

does it mean cardoso and alves will be shown the door

why bring halliday back then sign goss also what does it do for the development of jamie barjonas who i feel is showing plenty of promise

15.) 03 Jan 2018 16:31:53
It's a loan deal fs, calm doon.

16.) 03 Jan 2018 16:38:06
To be fair most signings most folk will not know, we can't afford names at the moment. How can anyone judge Mark Allen on a player that's not kicked a ball for us yet.

It could be 6 months to look at him, before offering longer deal, it could be to add a little depth to the squad or that he is a good young player for future or to go straight in to the first team.

17.) 03 Jan 2018 16:50:57
Goss is a sensible signing, rather than an exciting one imo. Alves looks like he could be out for a while, as does Dorrans, so playing Goss in front of the back 4 allows McCrorie to slot back in at Centre Half beside Wilson with Bates as cover.

18.) 03 Jan 2018 16:59:08
A Young Versatile player who wasn’t far away from Man United squad who is described as technically gifted with a terrific range of passing, we get chance to see if he’s good enough to improve our squad before committing to buy him yet people think it’s a poor signing.
As for questioning our DOF when the windows just opened when we aren’t aware of our budget, targets, strategy, who identify which of these players or ability of anyone who is signed yet.
Personally I’d love Murphy and/ or Naismith but until the window closes I will reserve judgement on how our DOF has performed

19.) 03 Jan 2018 17:23:51
If mciness was going to come to us he wanted funds to challenge celtic or what's the point really? Come here and have massive amounts of pressure to finish 2nd! He can can try the with Aberdeen and have nowhere near the same pressure. He would have been on 100 grand more so what is the point really. It's the same reason no other manager wants the job at this stage. No decent manger in there right mind would touch rangers unless funds were available to challenge celtic. The board know that aswell, look at the facts people Halliday is coming back, Murty is manager and we have taken a loanee who can't get a game for qpr.

20.) 03 Jan 2018 18:06:29
BigJ70 sense at last big man

21.) 03 Jan 2018 18:17:22
mkloyal make up your mind you said mcinnes vknocked us back now you are saying if he wanted to come, how do you know mcinnes was offered a hundred grand a year more it would have been a lot more than that the sheep won't be big payers, i think you are just spouting drivel, people or the papers are telling you what to post, don't think you have a mind of you own

22.) 03 Jan 2018 18:47:45
Haha true blue. Sometimes the truth is out there and sometimes it's quite obvious. The information is ture and that's down to you what you believe but everyone knows mciness knocked us back because of the director of football situation and the players that were put to him. He was also offered 800 grand he's on 700 at Aberdeen and Aberdeens chairman bought him a half a million pound house. Pedro was only on 900 grand and our board thought he was the next big thing. You need to weigh things up as a manager and our board are a bit of a joke. We should be impossible for most managers to knock back but we are not and there are reasons for that.

23.) 03 Jan 2018 18:54:59
But if you know something I don't true blue then please tell me? You must know something I don't if you can accuse me of talking rubbish.

24.) 03 Jan 2018 19:56:11
McInness is on nowhere near £700k.

25.) 03 Jan 2018 20:07:57
No way McInnes is on 700k at Aberdeen. Only report I can find on his salary says 300k

26.) 03 Jan 2018 20:36:40
He's on 700 lads sorry to burst that bubble.

27.) 03 Jan 2018 20:43:54
Sutaurt Milne is a very rich man and mciness is on 700 grand! If anyone thinks a manager would turn down 800 grand to sit on 300 your crazy. he's spent nothing on players and has been rewarded by his chairman. its funny how people say don't believe the papers but then in this instance turn to the papers for information. Get a grip lads

28.) 03 Jan 2018 21:14:58
Stop digging MK.
Your posts are progressively getting more and more cringe worthy.

29.) 03 Jan 2018 21:28:17
Hahahaha, this site cracks me up! You state facts and it's just seen as lies and bull. Hahaha

30.) 03 Jan 2018 21:36:40
Goss 1st signing. Terrible considering we got young boys there who would do the same job ( barjonas) loan seems to be way forward from our board. murphy should be a must but think the board are wait to get rid before we buy.

31.) 03 Jan 2018 21:54:46
I haven't heard any of your 'facts' even mentioned by the respected sports press so really it's all just your opinion, saying fact doesn't make it true. Mkloyal are you secretly Donald Trump?

32.) 03 Jan 2018 21:59:11
Mkloyal your stating YOUR opinion, just like everyone else. McInnes's arse went. He's not on 700k, behave. That's not a fact, just my opinion

33.) 03 Jan 2018 22:29:09
Huey generally certain things don't get disclosed to the newspapers but if you know then you know, that's life. X

34.) 03 Jan 2018 22:44:12
It's where we are guys. It's going to be slow and steady unless someone throws a wad of cash at us.

But, I can't believe just how negative we are about new players we've never either heard of or seen play, just because of that.

Also, Mark Allan is getting a hammering based on what? Doing the job the board has told him too.

We've got the basis of a decent team. Bit of tinkering now and summer is all we can do.

I've said this before, we operate in a market where the odds of success aren't guaranteed, but if we can get 50:50 we'll not be far away.

35.) 04 Jan 2018 17:03:40
Agreed with everything you said Glasgow ranger until you mentioned Naismith.

36.) 04 Jan 2018 17:12:27
Mkloyal I think your talking rubbish as you don’t know this to be true but your coming on here stating that’s why DM knocked the job back

37.) 04 Jan 2018 17:26:47
no interest in mcinness

With Morelos being a very successful signing for us from Columbia would it not be worth having a look there for some players plus leagues like Japan South Korea Norway Denmark Czech Republic.
There is a lot of good young players in these leagues and we should be able to attract them to our club.
Plus could open up new marketing opportunity for the club in new markets.


1.) 04 Apr 2019 18:16:31
If they all behave like him then no thanks
British based players for me we don't have time to gamble on these foreign markets.

2.) 04 Apr 2019 18:58:46
British players are overpriced and that's why we can only afford loans of British players and even then we are stuck with clauses that we have to play them.
For us to move forward we are going have to use foreign markets to trying get players that can improve us so we can challenge for the title and win it.
Plus it is vital for the club that we find more players like morelos that we can sell on for big money.

Where are the products from auchenhowie?

4.) 04 Apr 2019 20:15:23
one player has a bad disciplinary record so let's rule out all foreigners 🤣 great logic.

5.) 04 Apr 2019 21:11:27
Tilla die i very much hope we can start producing our own youngsters but until then we need to explore other markets.
This loaning players and developing them for other clubs is not the way forward.
Either look for young players abroad or give some of our own boys a chance to play.

6.) 05 Apr 2019 08:32:25
We absolutely should try and exploit some of they markets if we can find the quality it’s a no brainer commercially in some areas also.

7.) 05 Apr 2019 09:12:53
id like to think that our scouting system is looking in all countries regardless off Alfies success

but on flipside our other south americans ( herrera and pena ) were garbage so never a cert

scandinavia is the market we should be focusing on in my opinion. leagues are physical like spl aswell so better to judge guys against hammerthrowers.

8.) 05 Apr 2019 14:55:16
Seeing club should look here and there. Suggest club not stupid and Gers do seem to have much improved scouting system. Also suggest club recognise scouting world wide concern and have sorted this. Don't understand all on here suggesting we scout here there and everywhere. We have talented DOF controlling worldwide web of scouts so these suggestions null and void.

9.) 05 Apr 2019 22:21:15
I believe our youth set-up and scouting was very poor until recently, which is why we don't have the quality youths pushing for first team spots. Hopefully this is improving and we can look forward to breeding a team rather than trying to buy a team.



03 Apr 2019 18:41:32
worral in the team again what is point he is going back to forest get katic back in the team.
Gerard clearly has his favorite players and this will not change going forward is a joke.


1.) 03 Apr 2019 18:54:19
Gerrard clearly has no bawz👍.

2.) 03 Apr 2019 20:11:51
frightened he finishes 3rd---or 4th.

3.) 03 Apr 2019 22:22:17
I think there must be a fine attached to Worrell if he doesn’t play witch in itself is rediculess but I think Katic is a better defender and a better threat from set peace’s and he our player it’s hard to fathom.

4.) 03 Apr 2019 23:17:12
Gerrard a bottler
Ridiculous comment.

5.) 04 Apr 2019 07:28:38
Open your eyes tilla die, gerrard needs to grow a pair and drop worrall, its a crime that he plays before katic. You are obv another who can't see the wood for the trees👍.

6.) 04 Apr 2019 13:08:27
Coldo i think you will find its a requirement per contract that forces us to play him and nothing to do with personal choice.

7.) 04 Apr 2019 18:24:35
If it is a contractual obligation to play him then what donkey signed that?

I doubt it is a contractual thing and imo Gerrard prefers him as he's been a top English prospect.

I don't rate Worrall one bit. He is a cart horse plain and simple and it gives me the boak every week when I see him in front of Katic.

8.) 04 Apr 2019 19:22:35
Geesadodothat, I think you'll find that's not true👍.

9.) 04 Apr 2019 21:55:20
Contracts are only there as a mark of ownership for contract period. Nothing stops us ripping up contract and send loanees back at earliest opportunity.



31 Mar 2019 14:44:04
Looking back on this season since we exited Europa league we have played 20 games and only won 10 games and the games we have won are against smaller teams we have struggled again the top six teams.
That is not acceptable if we are to win trophies that says to me these players lack a big game mentality.
Going forward we need better quality in the first eleven and to do this we need to do better in the transfer market.
we spent round about 11 million on transfer fees this summer and only one player started today who we bought for fees this is not good enough from recruitment side.
Then we have all the loan players and freebies who have not worked out and now on good wages its been very poor recruitment from who ever in charge.
If we are going invest more money how about getting us some good scouts to spot players.


1.) 31 Mar 2019 15:16:42
Good post Craig, we need three or four of the marquee signings SG refers to.
Hastie, Stewart and jones no better than we have. however may chip in more goals i. e. ten to twelve each.
That second half shows gap not massive, we need to turn draws into wins, reduce further goals lost in league.
Candeas, Tav, jack, lafferty, Halliday, Worrall, no better than squad players if even that.
Davis, Defoe, and sad to say it Morelos unless he has a brain transplant not the answer either.

2.) 31 Mar 2019 16:14:45
Hastie and Jones will provide us with a much direct running style and take there man on hastie looks like he has goals in him so that should be plus and if Jones can add goals then the threat from the wings will be significantly improved will they be good enough to challenge Celtic time will tell.
As for Stewart he is no better than what we currently have so wouldn't bother signing him.
There is a lot of work required in the summer to the squad like the names you mention above there is few more fringe players that need be moved on as well but agree with all players you have said above.
As much as a like jack we need more assists and goals from that area of pitch and by the looks of arfield his legs look like they have gone in big games we need pace and energy in the middle park we seriously lack this and set up two defensive with 2 defence minded centre midfielders.
Our defence looked solid at start season and why gerrard decided to bring in worral to replace katic is a mystery.

3.) 31 Mar 2019 16:54:06
Craig, oaft, you think Jones will improve things? i'm from Kilmarnock and the description about him is yes, he's quite direct but his final ball is mince. What I've seen of him is i quite agree. Think we should be aiming a bit higher.

4.) 31 Mar 2019 18:36:24
I agree we should be aiming higher but it seems who ever is in charge of signing players seems intent on bringing in free signings
and that's why we have ended up with to many average players.
Untill we see serious money spent on half a dozen players and picked by the manager not mark allen then we will continue to sign the average players like jones kamara jack hastie lafferty from premiership.
But like i said hopefully that dirctness from both hastie and jones can improve us.



23 Mar 2019 17:05:44
see Scotland u 19 won today 4-0 Rudden scored 3 Middleton scored 1 2 assisted by Houston for Rudden.
It is great to see our young players doing well and linking up together more of these players need be involved in our first team squad next season.


1.) 23 Mar 2019 17:36:45
The youth set up is looking great, its crucial to our future success👍.

2.) 23 Mar 2019 18:54:16
Also beat turkey 3-1 last game rudden scored in that also.

3.) 24 Mar 2019 03:31:34
Coldo we need our manager to grow some and play some of these boys and we also need our fans to get right behind them and not slag them to death if they have a poor game.

4.) 24 Mar 2019 07:40:35
Totally agree stewartyblue best comment on here by a long way.

5.) 24 Mar 2019 10:32:57
wont happen though, 1) when your neck is on the line are you going to put your faith in a couple of under 21s 2) we will boo them when they have a stinker.

until us fans change our expectations then they only time these young guys well get a chance is a) we are so far in front in a game that a few errors won't matter b) no other choice through injuries.

6.) 24 Mar 2019 11:02:10
Stewarty, we can't play youth for the sake of it, that would be stupid. If the youth are good enough and better than what we have then they will play. You can't throw youth in just because you want the manager to grow a pair, absolute nonsense. Fans wouldn't need to slag them if they had a poor game, they would shoot their own confidence to bits because they were played prematurely👍.

7.) 24 Mar 2019 13:32:08
Coldo what is the harm of getting these young lads involved in the first team squad and give them game time from bench to start with.
then we can get rid of all the rubbish squad players we have this Would allow us to free loads of money for wages for quality signings and have young players on the bench wanting to prove a point.
To me it is a no brainier but we seem intent on trying to spend our way to finish above Celtic and stop ten in a row and it just is not working to many average players in our squad youth could do no worse as squad players to start with.
Every team in the league have youngsters starting apart from us.
Gerrard does need put his faith in them and start some of these players or at least get them on the bench.
Our youth are good enough its just we are not using them like now were we ain't using mccorie or Middleton and eirler katic some decisions are baffling by our manager.

8.) 24 Mar 2019 14:25:22
Craig, they have to be good enough and ready, If you play them before they are ready physically mentally or have the capabilities then you will do more harm than good. 👍.

9.) 24 Mar 2019 15:26:57
Hey guys I totally agree that if they are good enough but you will never know if you don't play them. Just look at the other side of the city and across Scottish football in general.

Now look at us katic was playing brill dropped Middleton either scorering or setting up a goal every couple of games dropped, mc Crorie playing his best football dropped.

So if what we are saying is that if your good enough then you should play. Imo these boys are good enough but never get a regular run in the team.

10.) 24 Mar 2019 16:07:04
Mccrorie middleton katic should be getting more game time, Far better options than koulibaly worrall grezda. Sorry stewarty I thought you were talking about our younger lads. 👍.

11.) 24 Mar 2019 20:30:12
Young ones have no chance while we're trying to stop that mob in Parkhead.

12.) 25 Mar 2019 14:40:48
If good enough Get the young guys in Remember what age was DJ when he had his first game for the Rangers.



18 Mar 2019 10:35:20
there was a article in one of this morning papers saying the players look intimated by gerrard what's everyone thoughts on this.
My view is it does look like the players are not performing for gerrard and you have to question why this is.
i think its down to his constant criticism of the players and there performances even when we win and score goals he is still not happy and let them no about it in public.
I think that's why these players are short of confidence and not performing these are the same players that done well in Europe at begging of season they don't just turn bad over night.


1.) 18 Mar 2019 11:32:17
Nae chance players need that in a manager even when my boy played for his school the coach done same and it worked wonders the players are grown men and should take it way a pinch of salt.

2.) 18 Mar 2019 11:36:20
Got slated for this before but we've had a long season think the players are tired physically and mentally also the constant pressures of playing for Glasgow Rangers must take its toll, especially younger players hence when we have a bad run it's hard to lift it again.
If they can't find a way to deal with that or the criticism then they will have to move on.
Gerrard is the man to take us back to the top, imo we are 1 or 2 quality players off being top team in league.

3.) 18 Mar 2019 12:00:11
Over many seasons supporting our team, I have seen many good players come and go, without doing themselves justice, others take time to settle.
The main cause of this, is that it takes a special mentality to handle the pressure of playing for our great club and wearing the jersey.

4.) 18 Mar 2019 15:00:50
dsgersfan the players probably should be responding well to this but then it can do the complete opposite and that's what it looks like has happend to these players just now.
So if that is the case and then we are going have to move some of these players on if they can not handle the pressure of playing for our club as no doubt manager will still criticism them next year.
I seriously hope gerrard stays and does well and makes at least 4 quality signings in the summer and bloods some younger players into the team these players no what it takes to play for the club and will be eager to impress for the team they want to play for.

Docherty should not be put out on loan again i think he has a role to play this season for us.
Middleton and mccorie need game time and that will only benefit them Middleton has showed he can play for us and is good enough just needs more games and is not going get that if we get kent back.
As for hastie he also needs games to kick in on so if we are signing Ojo i guess he will be first pick for right side and candeias and docherty as backup so a long move for hastie is a good move.
as for rossiter he is not getting back in that team ahead of kamara or davis or jack.

if we can sign Ojo for the right wing and kent for the left then the tea is shaping of nicely.
I personally am not in favour of loan deals when we have no chance of signing the player would rather we develop our own players or buy players with potential.
But if it helps us win a league title and a cup then who can argue with our managers choice.
its looking like Middleton Mccorie and hastie could be sent out on loan and this could be good move by gerrard give them game time and allow them to impress and come back better players like docherty did at shrewbusy.

Could be that amount money per week as a lot of english teams have been chasing him in the championship and premier leauge.

i would much rather us sign a young up and coming attack mid with a lot of pace as this is what we need to add to our midfield players with pace who can commit and run at players as we seriously lack that drive.

15 Mar 2019 18:09:32
Forgot to add alnwick dodoo holt and herrera that along would add up to a lot of wages and these players are certainly not contributing so would be no loss to the team.
Like other i feel candeias is getting slagged a lot on hear maybe if we had more players like him we would be in a better position.
But i do feel we need a good player to compete with him for that role
If we can add 4 5 players with real quality in the final third mixed what we have and the younger lads like docherty mccorie Middleton serge atakayi dapo mepbude zak rudden aidain Wilson Stephen kelly liam Burt cammy palmer i am sure all these lads could make a impact as squad rotation players maybe even some starting games rather than fork out thousands on players we do not use.

He is a good player like many other in these type of leagues i also like the look of Andreas Skov olson winger/ forward 36 games this season 22 goals 4 assists.
And also another players that looks really good is Mads Pedersen left back/ left mid
There is a long list of players we could target from these leagues some have been linked with bigger clubs or bigger transfer fees but have yet to still makes moves from there clubs so could well be worth a look at these types of leagues for players.
Nikola Moro and Dejan Joveljic are great examples been linked with bigger clubs but yet to move on.
These are the type of leagues we should be keeping a eye on for talent.

Depending on who leaves this summer i think we will need to add 6 first team quality players that are better than what we have.
This would give us the extra quality needed to challenge for the the title and minimum expectations for the season should be to win a cup along with getting to the Europa group stage again and start winning against the top 6 sides in the league.
Doing this will bring us a lot closer come the end of season and may even win the league with a bit of luck.
We do not need anymore squad players and i struggle to see where some of the rumoured signings would fit in and doubt they would improve on what we already have.

jboy21 a think a few teams down south would take him off our hands and possibly even get a fee or sell on percentage for rossiter.
He is a good player but mccorie should be that defence mid next season and then kamara for me if we play with 2.
