Had an interesting catch up with some friends who work at Rangers and they said that a lot of what PC is doing behind the scenes is very similar to what GVB and his team tried to do - which a lot of the players didn't take to.


1.) 27 Oct 2023 19:52:31
A lot of the players we have need moved on so that doesn't concern me. If they can't better themself or cope with changes and demands then cheerio.

2.) 27 Oct 2023 19:55:44
New manager same ideas?
You never know they might actually play for him.

3.) 27 Oct 2023 20:27:20
Too many auld guard had it too easy for too long n hit periods of underperformance with little too no cociqunce, also to many wit too much influence but not the play too back it up

Don't like it move on

Nobody's bigger than the team

Tune up or tune out.

4.) 27 Oct 2023 21:39:14
The core of this team have a history of throwing the manager under the bus and need to be replaced if PC wants a long and successful time as Rangers manager, because as we have seen over the last three years as soon as the going gets tough these same core of players will down tools.

5.) 27 Oct 2023 22:38:33
Big difference in character. Gio was a pushover. Clement won't tolerate nonsense.

6.) 28 Oct 2023 04:28:33
Look in my complete personal opinion from the info I’ve gathered. Gio’s downfall was completely on partly being too lenient on player performances and partly being too defensive minded when setting up against teams we should be beating.

I have heard nothing of this around Clement of yet. I feel people aren’t completely understanding the rubbish show that Beale left him. Hopefully Clement can sort at least the majority of this out in Jan but it probably will take longer.

I know people won’t want to hear/ accept/ acknowledge it but at the very least our club has been a rubbish show since around appointing Beale (definitely longer as well) . But as usual we are left to pick up the pieces and trying to move forward.

7.) 28 Oct 2023 04:35:28
We need to give Clement the time to change things as he sees fit. A section of our fans just don’t seem happy with anything the club do! I, personally still think we could do at least a double this year!

8.) 28 Oct 2023 08:26:09
We have not had a quality manager since were kicked down the divisions, but I believe we now have one, although early days, and we need to give him time. Some of our players will prosper under PC, and some will have to be replaced if they don't show it on the pitch. Next few games will give us a good idea of the progress our new man will make.

9.) 28 Oct 2023 08:33:02
There is a major difference this time. The guys that were primarily involved in the Clement appointment, Bisgrove and Bennett, involved Souness in the process so you had three professionals. In the past I would suggest that this wasn't the case.
Some of our old Board, that are no longer there, were as much of a problem as the manager.
Thankfully we now have a proven manager, probably the first since Walter, (and I say that with the greatest respect for Stephen Gerrard) .
With the right players, (and I agree that we need to steadily replace the old faces), we should look forward to a period of success, but he will need time and he will need everyone behind him.

10.) 28 Oct 2023 08:56:55
Gio's downfall apparently started during the preseason trip to Portugal some of the players weren't happy with the rules he set in place for the trip.

11.) 28 Oct 2023 10:28:57
What player threw the manager under the buss? You wanted Beale out now he’s gone yer blaming players our fans are always looking for someone to hate.

12.) 28 oct 2023 15:02:57
you just love the old “ our fans “ abuse raskin.

13.) 28 Oct 2023 12:14:02
Board need to make clear to long servers follow manager and do what he wants

We can only keep swapping manager for so long before board realise it's long serving clique players that are the problem.

14.) 28 oct 2023 20:11:11
we don't swap any managers, , no manager worth his salt will allow any clique to buckle him amd the board will support a good manager,

15.) 29 Oct 2023 01:56:45
So true TT1212. If this happened in a normal work place. Chaos!

16.) 30 Oct 2023 16:11:48
White horse, that is why in any Business the Board and in particular the chairman has to be 100% behind any new appointment. I have seen it personally, (during my working life I went into underperforming Companies with a remit to turn them round, where I had 100% commitment from the Board and the Chairman it worked. It's exactly the same for Clement, he has the job of turning round a non performing Business, (unfortunately his job is much more complicated, I could just get rid of non performers irrespective of what level they were at with the total commitment of the Board, and I could replace them with a top team, sadly he doesn't have that level of flexibility) .

There's a lot wrong at our club at the moment, but the board should never have let an inexperienced manager oversee the rebuild without an experienced DoF.

Whatever MBs vision was for the rebuild it's clear it's not working.

What's worse is that he seems to be so stubborn about his 'vision' that he can't see that we're actually regressing both as a team and as individuals.

No wonder so many players have refused to resign or extend.

Our priority must be to get a new DoF, as the board have shown that they're excellent commercially but seriously lacking in the football department.

What makes it worse is that the standard in the league this year is poor and I'm pretty sure that if we'd strengthened with any number of the homegrown options we've all debated on here, we'd certainly be no worse of and more than likely better off.


1.) 01 Oct 2023 14:51:57
Priority is to get rid of Beale mate.

2.) 01 Oct 2023 15:01:27
I must admit wasn`t a fan of the idea of buying the likes of Shankland but he is a superstar compared with Dessers and Lammers. I wonder why we have not replaced Wilson as DOF and without that role who knows enough about the football side to pick a new manager.

3.) 01 Oct 2023 15:33:01
I'm actually getting more and more annoyed with our board who have remained silent about one of the worst managers in our history. I honestly expected him gone either last night or today but no he remains in post. The man is a fraud. Get him out please.

4.) 01 oct 2023 15:33:52
rangers could have had shankland, doig, and especially ferguson who was a no brainer for me, we certainly wouldn't be worse than we are now, the next game could easily be beales last. if these players want him to succeed we will find out soon enough.

5.) 01 Oct 2023 16:06:23
I wasn’t a fan of shankland but more I watched he is better than dessers tho he has 1 goal in 7 games.

6.) 01 Oct 2023 16:48:01
We still haven't heard a peep from the board either way yet, I think we may do by the end of next weekend, depending on the result of this week's games. If we don't, do we assume they back him?, it'll get even uglier for them at ibrox !

7.) 01 Oct 2023 19:52:38
Wish people would understand the board need to be careful what the say, they have shareholders.



17 Sep 2023 14:36:12
On the plus side, remember back to last preseason when we played West Ham and Matondo and Lawrence looked really promising.

From the limited time they played yesterday it looks as though they have a real understanding of each others game - could be a really promising partnership there.


1.) 17 Sep 2023 16:13:49
Lawrence looks a really good player, it would have been nice to also see Danilo get a good few starts under his belt, I think he could come good, real
shame about the collision. Matondo supplied a good smooth finish for his goal. Would Like to see more of that from him with the right service.



08 Sep 2023 20:48:13
Watching the Scotland game and I reckon that man for man the Scottish 11 is better than our 11 - with the exception of Butland.

Changed times.


1.) 08 Sep 2023 21:36:01
Not forgetting Scotland are more exciting to watch too.

2.) 08 Sep 2023 21:50:42
Ehl, I don’t agree. Great result, dreadful game, we let Cyprus run through our midfield, they had 8 shots from outside box

Mctominay best player by a mile.

3.) 08 Sep 2023 21:53:42
Turned it off at HT wasn’t feeling it tonight even tho it was easy.

4.) 08 Sep 2023 22:55:45
Come on were is the positivity for the Scotland team? Best they've done in years and people still moan! Unreal!

5.) 09 Sep 2023 06:56:10
As they Ayer their poorest game in a while.

Next three games England Spain France. Let’s see how we play.

6.) 09 Sep 2023 07:54:57
We already beat Spain john. If Norway draw tonight Scotland have already qualified after just 5 games. That's a big step up from our usual trying to get through via a play off.

7.) 09 Sep 2023 08:22:45
One poor game John and we won! So what? We are top of the group and Guarantee to quality for Germany. England is a friendly so who cares. Can't believe the negativity surrounding our national team. Sorry but it's shocking.

8.) 09 Sep 2023 09:32:52
As read my post, I said great result, we r getting carried away as usual.

We should make Germany but still need one massive performance,

9.) 09 Sep 2023 09:34:02
John27, so who from our starting line up would you put ahead of last night's Scotland 11?

10.) 09 Sep 2023 10:22:55
Gun last 3 games he has 3 clean sheets. butland has conceded about 6 goals in his last 2 games. Take your blue tinted specks of folks.

11.) 09 Sep 2023 10:28:39
I read your post John. Who cares we won 3-0 away from home and top the group. You can't put a negative spin on that.

12.) 09 Sep 2023 11:17:50
As I care, also unless u run this site I’m entitled to my opinion

Do u even go and watch Scotland home way and in tournaments, I did.

13.) 09 Sep 2023 11:27:44
Raskinloyal, wasn't expecting to be accused of having blue tinted glasses in a post where I was being critical of our starting 11?

In the interest of fiarness, Gunn has conceded 8 in 5 league games - with 1 clean sheet - but feel free to pick and choose stats to create your own argument.

14.) 09 Sep 2023 16:01:44
Jfm who’s Norway playing tonight my friend?

15.) 09 Sep 2023 20:34:41
Recently gun has been in better form in a harder league and still conceded less but ok.



19 Aug 2023 16:21:36
5 Games in. what's our strongest 11?


1.) 19 Aug 2023 16:35:33
Depends on the opposition.

2.) 19 Aug 2023 16:41:37
What set up we playing?

3.) 19 Aug 2023 16:46:20
Strongest in my opinion.
Fit Roofe plays.
Still way to early too judge now tho.

4.) 19 Aug 2023 16:50:31
Tav Goldson Souter Borna
Cifu Raskin Dowell
Sima Danilo Cantwell.

5.) 19 Aug 2023 16:58:46
I don't see Yilmaz ousting BB at the moment BB has upped his game and looking back to his best.

6.) 19 Aug 2023 17:03:11
I'd agree with that team Beale, hopefully a bit of movement over the next couple of days tho, ins and outs!

7.) 19 Aug 2023 17:12:40

8.) 19 Aug 2023 17:24:52
I just think he's a better player than Barisic now tjbb, Barisic his played far better the last couple of games.

9.) 19 Aug 2023 18:04:02
For me

Butland .
Sterling Goldson souttar Borna
Rashin jose
Lammer cantwell Lawrence

Once Lawrence is fit.

10.) 19 Aug 2023 18:25:41
Yilmaz ain’t in our strongest 11 at the moment can’t see how anyone can pick him when he is injured.

11.) 19 Aug 2023 21:19:16
I'd say its-



If Roofe isn't fit substitute for Dessers.



30 Jul 2023 14:13:29
Are the likes of Souttar and Balogun okay to play on the Killie pitch?


1.) 30 Jul 2023 14:44:30
We train on one a they pitches.

2.) 30 Jul 2023 14:45:15
Donu think maybe lundstrum would play at ch with balogun against killie I don’t think he should risk Souttar in that game.

3.) 30 Jul 2023 14:49:01
Ehl, both have played plenty on plastic.

4.) 30 Jul 2023 14:50:52
I hope so EHL, my take on the defensive set up is that we will have so much possession and fire power in forward areas we will be ok domestically it’s European games that are giving me the fear atm.

5.) 30 Jul 2023 15:00:22
Is anyone? A dreadful pitch to play professional football.

6.) 30 Jul 2023 15:48:00
Not got much choice. He may try play it safe (injury wise) and use Yfeko but if we drop points he’d be criticised heavily.

7.) 30 Jul 2023 16:44:49
Raskin, John.

Wasn't saying they wouldn't play.

However given both players injury histories and the importance of the ECL qualifiers - I was wondering if they would potentially sit it out.

8.) 30 Jul 2023 19:11:39
Wouldn't play souter on that killing pitch, if you think back to him playing against livi at the start of last season he looked like a fish out of water, very unsteady on that surface. Would probably go with either yfeko or sterling to start.

Cash investment I'm the club doesn't immediately translate to a transfer kitty.

FFP means we are restricted in terms of what we can spend due to the low level of income that we generate (in comparative terms) .

This is probably the real reason we haven't seen major investment in either us or Celtic.

I know Barron is rated pretty highly within the Scotland set up, and he's exactly the type of player we should be targeting.

Biggest difference between Barron and our own youth is that Barron has played almost 80 first team games already - we just can't provide the same platform for players to develop.

Raskinloyal, personally wouldn't want any of those to leave in January if we're looking to strengthen the squad for a title push.

January is a tough window, not really sure what to expect from it as our squad is still massively swollen and our wage bill is a concern.

Other than the batch who are out of contract, not sure who else we have that would attract interest.

I think PC is the type of manager that will change the line up depending on the opposition - so we could very well see it at times.

The one thing he won't change is the Pillars and we can already see the impact that's having on the squad and our performances.

I'm one of the fans that would take Kent back if the price was right.

I think he suffered under both GVB and Beale as neither played systems that suited him.

Personally I think PC would be able to get the best out of him and we know that when he was at his best he was unplayable.

I would rather Shankland over Roofe and Dessers within the current squad.
