I don't know the terms of Coulibalys loan but I hope we have an ootion to buy that we have already agreed. He is some player and his value will be going up with every performance. He reminds me of Kante, not saying he is as good but he covers every blade of grass and is ferocious in the tackle. His all round attitude is spot on and exactly the type of player we needed.


1.) 10 Aug 2018 05:09:19
As soon as he signed I knew he was going to be good pick up. I am sure he was linked with some pretty big clubs a few years back when he was first coming through. He could do a lot worse than sign for Rangers permanently should his loan be successful then move onto the PL in a similar way to Wanyama.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 08:53:28
I recall many on here having a pop cause he was an unknown loan player. Silenced and not a peep out them now 😂😂.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 09:36:03
People actually thought that the amount of loans were embarrassing🙃, better than having windass and holt etc in the team. Onwards and upwards👍.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 10:23:12
I’m Sure PSG we’re interested in him 2/ 3 seasons ago fantastic player from the few games I’ve seen him play for us, does the dirty work.

5.) 10 Aug 2018 15:44:13
Brilliant performance from him last night, even when it looked like a man had passed him he somehow managed to get a tackle in and win the ball so I see the similarities to kante. Really good performance last night just hope we can produce that regularly.

6.) 10 Aug 2018 22:47:36
Him jack and Arfield will be just awsome together wow.



02 Aug 2018 22:36:20
Morelos was absolute class tonight. His overall forward play and work rate was sensational. He created 5 chances for us by holding the ball in and laying it off. Last year he would have tried to have gone himself but his teamwork was brilliant tonight. He is clearly learning under Gerrard.

Well played El Buffalo.


1.) 02 Aug 2018 23:29:58
What game were you watching.

2.) 02 Aug 2018 23:44:39
Really pleased with most of our play tonight. Some very good performances by our players. Thought allan McGregor, connor goldson, nikola katic were superb but my man of the match was ryan jack, who was simply outstanding tonight! Terrific midfield performance from jack! He was immense in the challenge, done the defensive midfield work superbly, what a superb pass for morelos in the first half, in particular! Jack broke play and started play for us terrifically well! A midfield masterclass imo from jack!

3.) 03 Aug 2018 00:10:53
I’ve always thought he was a team player! Wouldn’t look too much into his sultry look!

4.) 03 Aug 2018 02:20:15
He wasn't as good as he was in the first leg, but he was still very good.

5.) 03 Aug 2018 06:33:27
you would've been as well as copying and pasting SG's post match interview coops.

6.) 03 Aug 2018 06:40:10
Totally agree with most of the comments lads, while we lacked the cutting edge again last night we more than made up for it in workrate to a man. Allan McGregor will prove to be our best signing I feel, we are only 4 competitive games in and he has countless match changing stops on record. How often would we have folded in the last 3 seasons had any one of them went in. Wee mention for Coulibaly also whose engine is unbelievable up and down all night, he will just get better and better. Every man on the pitch should be proud of their performance last night and the goal at the end was so cruel on them, that performance deserved the win and the clean sheet.

On a side note, that’s the strongest our bench has looked in years and how refreshing it is that we could bring in 3 or 4 for Sunday to freshen it up! 3pts on Sunday now, LETSGO!

7.) 03 Aug 2018 08:15:27
Negri pal, i did also agree with everything gerrard said regarding his post match interview. But we all said travelling home in the car, that jack was absolutely outstanding and that was before hearing our manager's post match interview! You either believe me or not mate, that's up to you. It was pretty easy to see how good ryan jack played against osijek!

8.) 03 Aug 2018 08:23:15
Wee bear
The bench did look strong from an attacking point of view.
However what would have happened if one of the CH had got injured or sent off, there was no cover on the bench
To me it highlighted the need for a new CH to be brought in.
Anyway what a performance from Ryan Jack he was immense.
In Stevie we trust #lets go.

9.) 03 Aug 2018 10:51:15
Good to get through last night but think ejiera is to lightweight and tries to be to fancy for Scottish football, Tavernier is no defender and no captain, we need a new left back and move Flanagan to the right and make goldston captain.

10.) 03 Aug 2018 10:55:53
personally, I think, This is a kid who missed six months at the back end of last season. I am delighted with Ryan's performance,

we've got a good type on my hands there. He's a player who cares, who wants to win and is prepared to go out and do exactly what you've asked of him.

I think he made one minor mistake during 90 minutes in a big football match. As a midfielder, I was jealous of Ryan's performance tonight.

11.) 03 Aug 2018 12:11:48
Negri, the coop made a point ( a good one at that ) and you come railroading in to bring him down, its a rumour site not a "lets get one up on any one ir thing that we can site" sick of people having a go at each other here, time to stick together not rip each other apart.

12.) 03 Aug 2018 12:32:42
I think What is looks like a great player but would benefit greatly by trying to keep things a bit simpler.

13.) 03 Aug 2018 20:37:21
I'd like to mention candieas performance last night. What a difference having him vs Murphy down the right. His work rate helped nullify their obvious threat from their left, and he helped tav out, as he should. Tav, as a result had a great game too, as did they all to varying degrees.

I think Jack just shaded motm for me, what a ball through for morelos. Onwards and upwards. Let's go.



16 Jul 2018 08:26:10
Apparently as many as 4 Rangers players will leave the club this week. Rangers want to sell but loans are looking more likely due to the wages these players are on and the clubs interested won't match them.

The guy that told me this used to be involved at Rangers a while ago and claims to still have sources🤔

Players to go won't come as much surprise:


Dont know about anyone else but I'd be happy if we got £2m combined. £1.5m for Fod and £500k combined for the rest.

All 4 are at good ages and really should be sellable assets but it shows how poor our recruitment has been over the last few years. Fods the exception to that though as we will profit from selling him.


1.) 16 Jul 2018 09:20:37
i reckon we'd get a good bit more, 1.5 for Fod, 500k for halliday, 400k hodson and 400k forrester, I'd be happy with that

2.) 16 Jul 2018 09:42:06
The point you make about the wages does not surprise me in the slightest.

Some of our players are shockingly overpaid.

3.) 16 Jul 2018 10:24:15
Surely Herrera also on his way?

4.) 16 Jul 2018 14:16:33
i forgot cardoso also, we must be onto a not bad sum of money for these boys

5.) 16 Jul 2018 16:00:31
Very little interest in Herrera currently. He may be on teams list of players but he isn't very high on those lists.

6.) 16 Jul 2018 16:56:58
I completely take back what I said. Out of the blue that one.

7.) 16 Jul 2018 17:16:35
Jmfc110, 500k for haiiliday? and 400k For Hodson? . madness lmao we’d be lucky if we got anything for them both 100k players each same with Forrest who I’d happily let go on a free if it meant getting him off the wage bill.

8.) 16 Jul 2018 17:19:16
Herrera away back to Mexico on loan

9.) 16 Jul 2018 17:27:06
our recruitments been so poor and our wages so high for duff players that we can't get rid of them. let's hope lessons can be learnt there-when we eventually do get shot, we were lucky to get rid of pena, for a while, albeit that might still be back to haunt us at a later date. i think we need a quality central defender and 2 more quality front men

10.) 16 Jul 2018 17:35:38
Why the hell is foderingham the goalie getting punted over alnwick totally the wrong way round

11.) 16 Jul 2018 18:35:40
No one said He's being punted but he does seem to be down in Peking order as McGregor and alnwick rated better options

12.) 16 Jul 2018 18:39:29
Something happened after a Celtic game. Was not injured dropped.
Heard couple of stories but nothing with substance

13.) 16 Jul 2018 23:47:28
lol Halliday and Hodson will be loaned or have contracts paid off, clubs know we want rid and I’d be shocked if any cash comes in for them. Forrester will be released. Fod should go for around 1M but prob be around the 800k figure. From what I’ve been told a Wallace and Lafferty swap is still being discussed but Hearts want cash and Wallace lol

14.) 17 Jul 2018 07:27:50
Guys i'm i rite in sayin that we knocked back 2.75 million for fod not to long ago? We should not be accepting anythn less than 2.5 for him now that he's down the pecking order. It doesn't make him anythn less as a good shot stopper although i must admit i covered my eyes when he had the ball at his feet

15.) 17 Jul 2018 09:29:58
Scotty 123,i said that on here also,
regarding a wallace plus money, for Lafferty swap deal, around 2 weeks ago now! So i heard the exact same as you mate, regarding wallace and lafferty!



30 Dec 2017 09:34:20
Ive got family out in Australia and I've been told that there are rumours out there that we are looking at a young winger called Joe Champness from Newcastle Jets. I've googled this guy but can't find much out about him and certainly can't find any articles in the press linking him to us. Anyone know this guy? My knowledge of Australian football is iffy at best.




05 Dec 2017 23:24:39
Im not sure what to make about the approach for McInnes. If the compensation is close to the 800k to 1m being quoted i think that money could be better used elsewhere. I just don't think he is worth that outlay.

On the matter of who will be his assistant it looks likely that his long term assistant Tony Docherty will follow him to us. This guy is not good enough. It is nothing to do with who he supported growing up. I have first hand experience of Tony Docherty and he is useless as a coach. He was in the right place at the right time all the way through his coaching career. I was on the YTS at Falkirk for a couple of years and he basically came in and took credit for a great youth set up that had been in place for a few years prior to him arriving.

Wilkins or Murty as assistant for me although I also hear good things about JJ so why not keep him.


1.) 06 Dec 2017 02:04:33
Completely agree. I really hope JJ gets kept on in some capacity since he’s shown he has an eye for a player as well.

2.) 06 Dec 2017 08:29:32
It's a big No from me to the pair of them, especially Docherty. I too have come across this person and his 'coaching' skills I've witnessed first hand. He's an imposter who has a pal that keeps him in work - apart from the other, obvious reason that he despises Rangers.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 11:36:37
No idea about Docherty guys but if he is such an imposter do we really want a manager who puts such trust in him?

I think yesterday was by far our best performance of the season. We absolutely battered them from start to finish but as Andy says they have a team that knows how to get the job done. I'd rather have played terrible and won the cup.

I know it's been said in numerous posts but why did Barker get thrown on before Stewart? Gerrard said after he scored 2 from the bench recently that he was close to starting that game and yet we haven't seen him since. Barker hasn't done anything since signing and I just found it a really strange substitution.

Anyway, we take confidence from the performance and move on. No point moaning about offside goal either. We've still got to defend those better.


1.) 09 Dec 2019 12:27:27
Spot on MOC, our farside post was completely devoid of defenders at their free kick goal (offside or not) .

No point now, but wonder what would have happened if it had gone to penalties tho.

2.) 09 Dec 2019 13:32:38
Their keeper would have saved them all!

3.) 09 Dec 2019 13:50:29
Think so as well Pacman, however what's done is done Stevie has to buck up our defenders or it'll be all doom and gloom again.

4.) 09 Dec 2019 14:07:52



04 Dec 2019 21:55:04
Why bring on Ojo? Why not Stewart? I love SG to bits but he got that wrong at the end.

Our lack of pace at centre back is very worrying and Goldsons slackness on the ball is hurting us badly.


1.) 05 Dec 2019 06:31:34
rangers seem to get to their box and go sideways and back, the difference is celtic will always seem to get last minute stuff. it frustrates me that rangers can't do the same.



28 Nov 2019 19:18:28
What a player, what a player👏👏👏.


1.) 28 Nov 2019 19:51:58
Morelos is class mate. The difference in him is unreal. 👍.



28 Nov 2019 19:07:58
My mate was just saying to me if I thought Morelos had maybe overindulged when back in Colombia because he's looking a bit chubby again😂 I don't really care if he keeps scoring goals like that😂

Get in there buff. Come on gers💪.


1.) 28 Nov 2019 22:16:08
What’s he done to his hand.



01 Sep 2019 14:04:15
I had never been more confident going into an old firm match than today. Until i seen the team. No wingers? WTF

Every game we play with at least one winger but today out of the blue we push Aribo forward and have no Jones or Ojo?

Gerrard is the man. I can't speak highly enough of the man but that was the wrong team selection today. Simple as that!


1.) 01 Sep 2019 14:11:02
Totally agree we let ourself down by not sticking to our principles of havin width and getting good quality into the box.

2.) 01 Sep 2019 14:34:42
The manager got it all wrong. The selection and tactics were crap end of. We have squad in depth but still lack quality were it hurts. That should have been sorted during the summer but it wasn’t. We will suffer for that.

The Muppet, I don't claim to be in the know but we are not paying Defoe 65k a week. Especially not on any new deal.

11 Dec 2019 00:25:25
Dont underestimate the influence Defoe has had on Morelos and probably other young strikers at the club. Morelos improvement this season has been remarkable from all aspects. His attitude and mentality have probably improved more due to the manager and his staff speaking to him but his striker play in general will have improved by having guys like Defoe about. He's not picking up thousands a week to just sit on the bench. He's a great influence about the club and still more than capable on the pitch.

Sorry to be cynical lads but i don't believe that this actually happened. I think this could well be us leaking this story conveniently to try and draw out any genuine bids. With the Chinese window closing earlier than ours its convenientfor us to release this story so that anyone who does want to buy Morelos bid today to give us time to replace him.

I wouldn't sell now. Keep him for another year, let him bang another 30 goals in and have him well warned to screw the nut and we'll sell him for 20mill next summer.

Is Declan John a loan or is he going to Swansea permanently? If its permanent how much should we be looking for? IMO minimum of 2m with sell on of 20%. Probably being ambitious though. Thoughts?

It would be great if we could loan a 25m rated player. No chance!

Tommy, I was one of Ryan Jack's biggest critics when he first came. He caused us a lot of problems by sitting too deep and inviting pressure onto us. I am delighted that the lad has proven me wrong. He is showing now what a class act he is. He is now adding goals to his game as well which was something we lacked from midfield. I know it's a matter of opinion but if you can't see that Ryan Jack is easily one of our best and most consistent players then I can only come to the conclusion that you are at the wind up!

Agreed Cletus. When Hamilton equalised late on against Celtic I just got the feeling they would still win the match. They do it time and time again. We should have been out of sight last night and we shouldn't need a penalty decision whether it's right or wrong to win that match last night. I was pleased Gerrard called out the fact that "we should have been defending at the second goal and not complaining about a free kick". Maybe Goldson isn't untouchable. It's not like Gerrard to call out individual errors in interviews. He called out Flanagan for giving away the needless throw in too. We'll see what happens over the next week with team selection. We are miles ahead of where we were even from last season and the club is still on an upward trajectory but we are now at a point where difficult decisions need to be made with one or two players. Goldson is the main one for me that needs taken out with Katic to come back in. I've said time an time again that I still think Goldson has been a decent signing overall but some others have just surpassed him now.

At half time I would have bitten your hand off for a draw but i'm a bit disappointed to not win after that second half. Goldson has been a good signing for us overall since he came but i'm afraid there are now people that should be ahead of him in the starting line up.

28 Nov 2019 18:38:51
Ojo just doesn't look sharp. He let's the game pass him by whereas Kent goes looking for the ball and tries to make things happen. Helander has made a couple of good last ditch tackles but when they get our centre halves turned and running toward our own goal both Helander and Goldson look as though they are treading water. The lack of pace at centre half is a bit of a worry.

Not a great performance so far but 45 minutes to go. Come on the gers.
