Straight from the gaffers mouth, the moans and groans are not helping Tav while he's having a sticky patch. Get behind the team on match day and save the criticism for the pub after the game or on Rangers Rumours.


1.) 28 Oct 2019 00:22:11
Hes hardly going to get cheered for missing a pen 👍if it was one or 2 fair dos but that's 3 already this season, time to change the pk taker.

2.) 28 Oct 2019 10:15:06
So that 3 is one more than your limit is it? Not defending him on missing as I think the reins of penalty taker should be handed to someone else. Gerrard unknowingly created this elephant in the room by handing Tav the captaincy as he seems to feel like he can't drop his captain, if that was the LB which he has proven many times since his tenure he would drop him in a second. His crossing has become poor and was highlighted nothing more than when we got the goal on sunday and Tom Miller said umpteen times that cross was from tav, that assist was from tav. He has struggled beating the first man with his crosses this season and when you look down the left side BB is firing in pin point crosses, maybe tav should be cutting in a lot more than trying to cross the ball. I don't know. SG is the manager and he picks the team, personally I expected a little lie of 'tav is showing signs of tiredness and we decided to drop him, or tav has a tight muscle and didn't want to risk playing him on sunday' just to deflect the reason he was dropped. Its hard, he IS the captain but on the other hand he is struggling and I think a week out could do him the world of good. As ave said before I think SG used permanent marker when he wrote tav and goldsons names on the board at the start of the season. It is what it is really no matter who SG picks, he picks for a reason we have cheered on far far worse players than tav.
Carrot and the stick, some boys need a good shouting at and shake and others an arm round the shoulder.
I will be cheering him on as he wears our top, has the armband and is our player.

3.) 28 Oct 2019 12:54:27
That's a good and fair post mate. It's hard to drop your Captain, especially when you chose him. He hasn't been playing the best this last wee while but deserves our support as you rightly pointed out.

4.) 28 Oct 2019 12:56:01
Stevie said himself there were few options to replace as flan is injured.

5.) 28 Oct 2019 13:03:17
I'd take Tav out the firing line penalty wise. Maybe this will help his overall game, not having this responsibility as well. I'm actually feeling a bit sorry for him and would like to see him knuckle down and recapture some of the form we know he is capable of.

6.) 28 Oct 2019 13:09:44
I remember a time when a player had to be particularly bad to get real grief at Ibrox, and even then somebody would no doubt shout 'get behind the team '. I can only really recall Alan Hutton, Alec Clelland etc getting very minimal grief from the fans, but it was nothing compared with what gets dished out to all our players every week now - dunno whether it's social media or whatnot, but booing your own team was a no-no when i was a lad.

7.) 28 Oct 2019 13:45:19
Tav needs a spell on the bench. Flanagan should be given a shot at RB his natural position. It’s not just the missed pens it’s his costly lapses in defence as well and he’s not playing with any confidence atm. That being said, it was clever play to win the pen in the first place and most of the team weren’t at it yesterday. They’ll be no room for passengers on a freezing cold Wed night at Dingwall. They better get their heads right before then and handle Ross County the way we are expected to.

8.) 28 Oct 2019 16:43:13
Nobody booed him. It was the motherwell fans who were booing as they thought he dived for thr pen 👍 fintytint aye it I'd more than the limit 3 misses out his last 4 pens is really poor and anybody else would be off them by now 👍.

9.) 28 Oct 2019 21:00:24
Tav is letting himself down by insisting on taking pens when he is clearly going through a sticky patch. In any other circumstance you miss one and the pens go to someone else. As a senior player SG should be able to rely on him putting the team before himself. I can forgive a loss of form and missing penalty but can’t forgive his continual school boy defending giving away goals when all he has to do is clear his lines. This is the first thing you are told at 13 years old. He is 28 years old and is our captain so should lead and have t he sense to play himself out of these situations by doing the basics well.

10.) 29 Oct 2019 10:15:30
Tavenier is setting himself up for criticism he has to deligate instead of doing everything himself our strikers should be taking penalties and Gerrard should be insisting on that Davis is small a d should be taking corners with barasic taking them from his side tavenier to cover corners from ciunter attack with his speed. Simple.

11.) 29 Oct 2019 14:00:53
Get off the lad's case, people - the manager has spoken.

12.) 30 Oct 2019 12:32:15
totally agree Souness, and, I freely admit I criticised him recently, but, there is a phrase 'Anyone who doesn't make a mistake, doesn't do anything', at least he gives his all.

13.) 30 Oct 2019 16:57:42
He can never be critisiced for not trying. Even when making mistakes he's still trying to drive us on down that right. My only points on it is that his confidence seems gone as he's making the same mistakes, not that he's suddenly a bad player,!



05 Oct 2019 23:33:19
Katic has got to start tomorrow and hope he keeps his place should his performances merit it.


1.) 06 Oct 2019 07:21:05
Hopefully. He should be played on the right in Goldson's berth, but we all know that's not going to happen.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 09:49:08
Pappy maybe we should sack gerrard and put you in charge.

3.) 06 Oct 2019 12:50:00
Katic should start 6counties. Your statement is ridiculous🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️👍.

4.) 06 Oct 2019 14:46:59
Why does he keep chopping and changing our defence Katic for me is our best central defender also a goal threat but out again today need to get a settled back four.

5.) 06 Oct 2019 16:37:24
I'm a Katic fan and Goldson not so much but give Goldson his due he scores goals.



28 Oct 2018 20:28:52
That was a sore one. On the whole i've felt positive about the season so far and i'm sure when we get our next win i'll be feeling better but that's 180 mins without a goal and if it wasn't for Hamilton gifting us that game last week it would be 270 mins with no goals. We keep going down the wings and putting in poor crosses to no one in particular. don't know what's happened but we need to start opening teams up again and getting more shots in. Poor, poor, poor.


1.) 28 Oct 2018 21:41:41
Got to agree. Looking at the games coming up, the league could change very quickly. As for Europe that's been a bonus cash wise. New team with not much time to settle and wallop 14 games in Europe before Christmas. We need to keep rebuilding but not whole sale but bit by bit. Players who are not showing promise now should be gone at Christmas. Better quality cost more money. Get rid of 4 bring in 2.

However we will, even if we win the league have 8 games to play to qualify for Europe. Spending millions to stop 10 in row is the road to ruin. Disappointed today yes, but will wait and see what the next window offers.

2.) 28 Oct 2018 21:55:50
its warburton all over again. these guys come up from england and think our football is a joke and easy . maybe if we stop buying nobodies from england it will stop being a joke.

3.) 28 Oct 2018 22:34:00
Also worral and Goldson keep sending long aimless passes, I thought Gerrard would want us playing out from the back and keeping it on the deck. The distribution from our defenders is poor, That's why they should give the ball to someone who can pass. I can't put my finger on it but for me it's still a creative midfielder we need as the pass that needs to be played right now nobody can make.

4.) 01 Nov 2018 07:26:36
Yes jordy 15, I agree 100%. A creative attacking midfielder and a strong centre forward is a must in the transfer window. I've been ranting about this for ages.

Hardly seen us dominate a game in europe like that in a long time, can't believe we never scored! Still joint top and undefeated.


1.) 26 Oct 2018 00:34:52
Every player stepped upto the mark other than Coulibaly in my opinion he broke the play up often enough but his distribution was shocking. Kent was unplayable, Morelos a handful as usual our defence wasn’t really troubled. Still unbeaten in Europe bears only way is up.



15 Sep 2018 21:11:48
Halliday is the new bert konterman. Not a huge talent, might not play every week, don't necessarily want him to play every week but gives his all and might end up a wee fans favourite.


1.) 15 Sep 2018 21:30:15
So nothing like konterman then?

2.) 15 Sep 2018 21:33:52
Halliday couldn't lace kontermans boots. Konterman was a great player for us and we could use someone like him now.

3.) 15 Sep 2018 22:23:08
I don't understand the comparison with Halliday and Konterman, please explain. I do remember Kontermans winning screamer against Celtic though.

4.) 15 Sep 2018 22:31:39
I don't understand how you can't understand the comparison. Konterman gave his all when in midfield or defence, was a much better player than Halliday but was not a top rangers player from that era or the preceding years. Ended up a bit of a cult hero because of said goal. Kinda similar to Hallidays situation.

5.) 15 Sep 2018 22:55:08
Remember Konterman getting a lot of stick saying he wasn’t good enough he was a good player but nothing special remember that goal against Celtic well but can’t understand above statement.

6.) 15 Sep 2018 23:01:01
Thanks for clearing up the similarities. Konterman will be remembered for that wonder goal, Haliday will be remembered for? I certainly don't have anything against Halliday but there is simply no comparison .

7.) 15 Sep 2018 23:08:26
He won't be remembered in 10-20 years but he's getting some nice comments instead or abuse which is nice. Yous are hard work lol.

8.) 16 Sep 2018 01:25:42
I for one am amazed in the difference in Halliday's play. He has always given his all but seemed not good enough, now under Gerrard he seems completely rejuvinated, played some lovely football today. Just shows how much confidence can change a player.

9.) 16 Sep 2018 07:31:21
Judging by his holiday photos Andy Halliday is having the last laugh on lots people, well played yesterday although he is backup this season!

10.) 16 Sep 2018 08:38:02
Halliday isn’t good enough if we are ever to get back challenging Celtic he isn’t the answer. Need far better in midfield than him. If you look at both teams I would say we are as good as them maybe even better in defence and attack however it’s the midfield where the major difference is. Halliday wouldn’t get near their squad and is way short of any of their midfield players.

11.) 16 Sep 2018 10:29:37
There’s Arthur being positive as usual🤦‍♂️.

12.) 16 Sep 2018 17:18:43

Nothing to do with being negative. That’s my opinion on Halliday he isn’t good enough and wouldn’t get near their squad. Do you think he is good enough and would get into their midfield?

13.) 16 Sep 2018 17:25:12
We have a squad which includes central midfield players Coulibally, Arfield, Jack (probably our starting three when fit), Ejaria, Dorrans, Rossiter (all injured yesterday), McCrorie and Halliday. Basically the manager chose Halliday over McCrorie, his only other option. His choice, he has confidence in the player. The point is, we have at least eight players for these positions and yeaterday four were available. That's why we need a squad, and ayone who thinks we can have better than Halliday sitting on his backside as seventh choice out of eight and be happy with that, is clearly not thinking properly. Who is Smeltic's seventh choice midfielder? Who is Hearts' seventh choice midfielder? Dear oh dear.

14.) 16 Sep 2018 21:30:09
Who cares about their squad Arthur dear . Stevie gas put at least 500.000 k on the head of Andy in 6 weeks.

15.) 17 Sep 2018 13:01:59
Tbh who cares about the past, who cares if he would get in their team either. things change, he’s our player, he’s one of our own and he’s playing well😁Long May he continue doing so for us 🇬🇧🇬🇧.



30 Aug 2018 17:26:37
Brilliant performance, result, achievement. For any Morelos bashers, Neither was a sending off. You don't get a 2nd yellow for not walking over to the referee. And flanighans 2nd yellow wasnt a bookimg either. Petulant little prick of a ref. The ref for the 1st leg was a disgrace as well.


1.) 30 Aug 2018 17:48:22
The ref was shocking! Why do thet get to run games like today?

However, Morelos does need to wind himself in a tad!

Both made our team sweat all the more today and I've nae nails bitten to the click! In agony! 🤣😂

Happy bear though I must say.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 18:05:40
Ok, the ref wasn't very good but that does Not excuse Morelos kicking the ball away then giving the line o abuse, then giving the ref some stick don't give him a choice to make, will you be saying the same thing on Sunday as you know Celtic will definitely be winding him up. Twice this Season he's let down the fans and his teammate's Liability
He had better Score the winner on Sunday.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 18:17:51
It didn’t, t surprise me what a bad game the German referee had, you cannot say anything to them and their decision making is not the best. But hopefully we can some decisions in games coming up. What a job Stevie G has done!

4.) 30 Aug 2018 19:10:39
Can't believe your defending him. all he needed to do was walk away whyour even kick the ball n get a booking so early and end up walking a tightrope. To compound that by abusing the linesman after getting booked was just stupidity and he deserved everything he got. Hope a few of the lads sit him down n tell him that he can't leave us short.



28 Aug 2018 20:02:13
The ufa game not on the box?

Arfield doesn't play as a winger. He plays as part of a fluid front 3. he's not had the best start to the season but when on form is great at connecting midfield and attack.

Nothing more to come Not saying we need to spend millions apon millions but have hardly spent a penny this transfer window. i'd imagine we still have plenty left in the budget esp if we get rid of dead wood.

Slim jim. Its all that matters to you! Your not the centre of the universe. A good Scotland team means a lot to me and many others so your talking nonsense. All the better if its got some Rangers players in it. Plus international caps boosts value and reputation of a player.

Not sure if greegs will be our No1 next year. Great goalie for us but sometimes looks like he's getting slower to get down to things and not getting any younger.

Everyone is free to support whom ever they want. I love Scotland as much as Rangers and would love to see the Scotland team filled with quality gers players. I personally dislike the anti SFA/ Scotland agenda that many of our fans have, regardless of the reasons, I think its beneath us but we're all free to our own opinions.
