Papers reporting that both us and celtic after Lawrence Shankland in Jan. Doubt Dundee Utd will deal with us.


1.) 01 Oct 2019 11:48:59
Hope they don't deal with us, would be a blessing in disguise👍.

2.) 01 Oct 2019 13:50:35
No chance coldo, he is a poor player.

3.) 01 Oct 2019 15:46:50
I understand what you guys are saying, regarding us possibly signing lawrence shankland but you just never know how good a signing, or not for that matter, he'd be. Honestly guys, i heard the same thing thrown at ally mccoist, when we were trying to sign him from st. johnstone and then sunderland. He as we all know became our record goalscorer, of all time! For the record a lot of footballing people including mccoist himself, reckon shankland can make it at the much higher level and liken him to mccoist. We'll just have to wait and see how it all pans out. We can't simply assume that because nicky clark scored for fun at that level and couldn't when he stepped up a level, doesn't mean the same thing would happen to shankland. You just never know and football experience over many years teaches you that!

4.) 01 Oct 2019 16:03:43
Hes definitely not poor but I agree probably not the standard we require to keep moving forward.

5.) 01 Oct 2019 17:26:10
Herewego that makes him poor if he can’t move us forward. Why sign a player pay wages lend him out.
Anyone remember we got into trouble in the past.
Who would honestly pay million plus for a 24 year old who has not scored in top league.

6.) 01 Oct 2019 17:31:34
Supercoop, I remember the young McCoist very well as teenager at St Johnstone and he always had outstanding potential. Potential by itself however is not good enough and McCoist had incredible commitment and desire to succeed. IMO that’s why he had a great career.

the boy Shankland is a natural goal scorer but not good enough for us going forward. Believe he will reach a good level and have successful career with his current club or at standard of say Hibs/ Hearts but not with us.

7.) 01 Oct 2019 18:51:28
seem to want anyone who scores a few goals and a rangers supporter to then sit on the bench and waste away, if he is that good he would already have been picked by a bigger team. we can't buy all the rangers supporters out there.

8.) 01 Oct 2019 19:36:13
I’d rather not tbh, if the boss and scouting set up has missed a trick then so be it, Shankland, Brophy, Cosgrove and the boy from Livi are all not good enough IMHO, not saying I am always right, but think these players being banded about are a step backwards or sideways for our club, they’re hardly setting the heather alight (Shankland aside but not proven in a top league in spite of his scoring record) .

Looking forward to another 3 points against young boys.

9.) 02 Oct 2019 15:47:06
Not the standard we require doesn't mean he's poor john. I'm sure he could play in the spl no bother, think if we want to win the league and play in Europe he's probably not going to be at that standard. That doesn't mean he's poor.



22 Sep 2019 11:25:34
Katic not in the squad again today. Maybe the rumours are true afterall?


1.) 22 Sep 2019 13:07:47
Actually quite raging about this. The guy has gave his everything and been unreal just about every game he’s played. Goldson should be dropped before him because he hasn’t been anywhere near the level Katic has been at this season. Katic is also a player that could be sold on for millions if he gets more game time and develops because of his age.

2.) 22 Sep 2019 14:58:56
Katic will play on Wednesday in Cup Quarter Final.

3.) 22 Sep 2019 16:12:25
Bankie no he won’t, Helander now in possession. its a cup we need to win.

4.) 22 Sep 2019 16:24:36
Blu89, I agree with you sir, its worrying that Katic has been dropped, he's a fantastic player who has great potential and pops up with a goal or 2. I do question Gerrards team selection at times but I suppose he knows best. I would drop/ rest Goldson as he's been coming complacent. What's your view on this chaps?

5.) 22 Sep 2019 16:29:19
Agreed, I fear Katic won't be seen again for a long time. Don't know what Gerard's problem is with him? Goldson needs a rest.

6.) 22 Sep 2019 16:56:00
its a squad game. if you play well and are fit you keep jersey unless its for tactics. Big Swede wasnt bought to sit on bench so he has jersey for now. Big Conor scored today as well.

7.) 22 Sep 2019 17:30:48
Struth, the big Swede as u call him, has been immense since coming into the team, Katic is young and raw, we have a league to win.

8.) 22 Sep 2019 17:42:16
Agree happened last year Katic dropped for months for Worral cost us seems to not fancy him gerrard I think Katic best defender.

9.) 22 Sep 2019 17:59:57
Think about it this way Struth. If you are an employee at a job and you’re bursting you’re backside every day and working well would you not be mad if other employees who have just been going through the motions are promoted and you’re not?

10.) 22 Sep 2019 18:20:40
Gerard has also said many times, if you have the jersey it is yours to keep if you perform. Unless of course you are Goldson. Katic is hung out to dry again.

11.) 22 Sep 2019 20:29:59
The stuck, lots off nonsense being spoken re Katic replacing Goldson. One is a right sided cb the other a left sided lb. so if people want Goldson out it would be edmundson who came in.

12.) 22 Sep 2019 22:13:45
Bursting your backside off to maintain the standard all around you dosent wash with me, if that is what it takes and you fall below that, only one outcome, your dropped. Goldson and Helander are our best centre back pairing.

13.) 22 Sep 2019 22:21:45
John25 think you’ll find Katic is right footed.

14.) 22 Sep 2019 22:30:54
It may just be that katic has played a fair amount of football. He played during the summer break with Croatia at euro championships. Could just be resting him in preparation for a long busy season ahead. Think arfield will be the same after Canada duty. I would also think Davis will be due for a rest coming soon with possibly king coming in to the team.

15.) 22 Sep 2019 23:15:07
If there is a disciplinary prob then the manager is obligated to sort it out . I think Katic is brill . There was footage however at the start of the season where he took umbrage to something jones said in training and Katic went for him so I think he is quite a fiery character and maybe he has to be brought into heel . simple as that . Lastcyesr everyone forgets but he was injured then came back too early . But all the press, people on here and pundits say he was dropped. That is not the case last year .

16.) 22 Sep 2019 23:30:15
Robbie your argument makes no sense because Katic has been better than Goldson so why does Goldson get the jersey automatically?

17.) 23 Sep 2019 10:24:13
Gerrard said after the Feyenoord game that Goldson is technically better than Katic. I rate Goldson very highly too, I think he's our best defender.

18.) 23 Sep 2019 10:49:06
Helander goldson katic

Katic should be number 1 cb an let hel n gold fight for num 2
Katic been 100% better than hel n gold put together.

19.) 23 Sep 2019 13:12:58
Katic has looked great at times and not so much at others. SG picks based on what he sees, and he sees far more than we do.

Nobody can deny that Goldson and Katic partnership was not working perfectly. Teams were creating chances against us that they wouldn't against a better centre half pairing. For me, neither looked great.

SG reckoned Goldson and Helander was the best option in the past two games, and we've kept two clean sheets and won both games. So let's carry on trusting him with the decisions, and calm down on both the criticism of him, and the praise of Katic.

If some of the posters on here were to be believed, Katic and Barasic would be contenders for the Baloon D'or. And Halliday would be responsible for every bad result we've had since he signed.

20.) 24 Sep 2019 17:10:36
If there was a bust up at training then nobody knows what has been said. Which may have led to katic been cast aside. Would like to edmunson more to be honest. be great if he could get great partnership with helander going.

21.) 24 Sep 2019 17:37:08
Believe Helander and Katic will play central defence tomorrow night. Don’t believe that weakens the defence. If.



09 Mar 2019 13:16:49
I've heard Davis is to join permanently. To be honest, I don't see the sense in this, hasn't contributed much. Also, fair play to Leanne Dempster coming out on TV last night and personally going to apologise to Tav.


1.) 09 Mar 2019 13:53:11
There is no sense in signing davis permanently, he hasn't contributed one bit. Another high wage that could be better spent. 👍.

2.) 09 Mar 2019 18:55:53
Davis will come good and still has loads to offer a pre season into him and involved from word go he would do us a turn.

3.) 09 Mar 2019 19:07:12
This was my nightmare from the start, my favourite, that I have seen, Rangers player mediocre sad sad sad.

4.) 10 Mar 2019 01:16:02
There is a fair chance that Stevie G knows a bit more about football than some of the people who post on here.

I could be wrong, of course, but will take my chances.

If Steven Davis is with us next season, it will be because the man whose job depends upon it has made the decision.

5.) 10 Mar 2019 10:10:25
Davis will come good, his legs haven’t gone, he’s just not match fit, never panic lads it clouds your vision.



06 Mar 2019 10:29:15
Gerard apparently looking at Millwall RB Mahlon Romeo. Given that we have Polster, could Tav be off?


1.) 06 Mar 2019 15:39:23
Yes he's 100% been targeting as a replacement however I think it would take around £8m for us to sell Tav.

2.) 06 Mar 2019 15:58:33
I’ve seen the boy Romeo a couple of times this seaon mainly coming off the bench at Millwall. Tidy player, more like Logan at the sheep than Tav. Certainly not the attackng threat of Tav.

3.) 06 Mar 2019 18:13:03
It would cost more, than 6 mill
To take Romeo to rangers.

4.) 06 Mar 2019 23:20:43
Macbow. £6m for a soon to be out of contract player?

5.) 07 Mar 2019 08:57:09
Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou, Romeo!
I'll get my coat.



25 Jan 2019 08:52:09
Any update as to whether Goldson will be fit for Sunday? If not I dread to think what will happen with the 2 bombscare's at the back at Livingston.

Just reading the interview with Dean Shiels in the Record about his time with us where he talks about Warburton's clockwork subs, and it just brings it home how far we have came when you think of the likes of Kevin Kyle, Sheils, Sandaza, Kiernan, Zelalem etc and that horrendous Blackthorn Cider kit - wow, those were dark days.


1.) 08 Oct 2019 12:27:32
Totally agree mate, that was the point I was trying to make last week when a lot of us were overreacting to losing against young boys, we have came on leaps and bounds in just a few seasons 👍.

2.) 08 Oct 2019 14:04:04
Well said man. There's a lot of folk with very short memories on here.

3.) 08 Oct 2019 21:11:57
Kiernan, now there was a CH To be honest I thought the young boy Zelalam loaned from Arsenal was decent and an upgrade at the time.



03 Oct 2019 19:55:50
Tav cost us big time tonight but we all know Gerard will never drop his golden boy. Hellander shakey again, why does Gerard not trust katic in these games. Absolutely gutted, that was a game we should have won. They were nothing special. 3rd in group now and now 2 game against Porto. Could be finished in this group shortly.


1.) 03 Oct 2019 20:03:53
Have faith Sir Struth, I firmly believe that we can still win this group, we have to cut out the stupid mistakes though. Someone said that Helander was shaky tonight, I can't agree with that, the defence was okay tonight apart from Tavernier, Alfie was brilliant tonight, he tried everything and was denied a stonewall penalty.

2.) 03 Oct 2019 20:15:39
Think kstic is our best cb but thought the 2 cbs did very well tonight. 2 tav hoelers cost us thst gsme.

3.) 03 Oct 2019 20:29:49
Stonewall pen. 👍.

4.) 03 Oct 2019 20:32:14
Bin saying for a few seasons now tab is neither a captain or a defender, I know he attack’s well but a defenders job is to defend, Flanagan should be our right back when fit and Ryan jack should be our captain but that won’t happen because gerrard won’t drop him, why is it that Katic plays well and gets dropped but Rab can’t defend but never gets dropped,

5.) 03 Oct 2019 20:58:42
We're not third, we're joint top.

6.) 03 Oct 2019 21:33:52
Nice one daisy 👍.

7.) 03 Oct 2019 21:56:21
We are 3rd daisy, goal difference and head to head mean we are 3rd. 🤦‍♂️👍.



20 Sep 2019 07:50:07
Excellent result and performance last night. Have to say that Hellander was immense but does anyone know what happened to Katic?, not even on the bench. Is this now Katic going to be dropped again for the majority of the season like last? Don't think he deserves that.


1.) 20 Sep 2019 09:25:46
If u watched it u will have heard Gerrard stating horses for courses, "niko katic is a beast he flies in at both ends but for this game we need technical ability and a balance to our left side of defence "

Hope this clears up for you and u now know why.

2.) 20 Sep 2019 09:56:31
Katic will play on Sunday against St Johnstone. Will be interesting to see who plays alongside him.

3.) 20 Sep 2019 17:03:15
I think Hellander should get a shot with Katic v st Johnstone’ . please Stevie please . maybe with edminson replacing Katic at half time for some game time . Goldson can get the tea on and we can worry about next week when it comes . This team selection malarkey is a canter . Stevie give me a shout night before games and I will sort it out for you.



18 Sep 2019 11:41:14
So sad to hear of the passing of Fernando Ricksen. What an absolute horrible disease MND is. RIP.




14 Sep 2019 12:40:14
In relation to Mark Allen leaving, I'm reading a lot of comments that he jumped before he was pushed? Do these people know something the rest of us don't?


1.) 14 Sep 2019 13:34:16
His record was patchy at best and he showed no ability to move on unwanted players.

For those saying Gerard isn't going anywhere, he might not have a choice. As much as I've tried, I still haven't forgiven him for that absolute shambles of last Sunday. I thought the days of celtic winning OF games without breaking sweat were over, but nope. Time will tell if he's man enough to admit he made a massive massive mistake and we never see that ****ed up formation ever again. Celtic aren't anything like they've been under Rodgers, but we made them look good last Sunday and that is unforgivable. Mistake or no mistake, it was an OF game, and you should never use these games to try and experiment. He tried it last season v motherwell and we dropped 2 points, this time we dropped all 3.

He left his "beloved" Liverpool to gain managerial experience. His aim is to manage Liverpool at some point and he was never going to be promoted to manager from Liverpool under 18's - that's why, nothing to do with being a rangers fan or regretting not playing for us. As others have said, he wouldn't leave Liverpool for Chelsea, Real Madrid at the height of his career, so why would he leave for us?

He's missed 2 this season both in Europe, but yeah a bit drastic to take him off then for that.
