Hearing Barasic facing a race against time to be fit for Sunday, took a few sore one's v Hamilton and had injections to allow him to play v Feyenoord and Hearts. If he doesn't make it, who plays? Flanagan or Halliday?


1.) 05 Dec 2019 14:40:33
Halliday is naturally left footed. I'd play him and Katic for Helander as he is more physical and quicker. McGregor Tav Goldson Katic Halliday or Barasic Jack Davis Kamara Arfield Morelos and Kent.

2.) 05 Dec 2019 16:24:50
nailed it seeker - katic must come back in

naisy bullied hellander.

3.) 05 Dec 2019 20:55:12
Naismith bullied Helander? Is that a joke?

4.) 05 Dec 2019 22:45:10
I think he will play. Last December on the run up to the old firm, there was "no chance" Kent was going to be fit to play, the rest is history. Think Celtic are doing the same with Edouard.

5.) 06 Dec 2019 14:37:28
Marco you r right re Barisic. Love ones come on here saying I heard somewhere he is injured
In every paper u read. Lol.

6.) 06 Dec 2019 23:37:15
Davis is out for Sunday. Big loss up to Arfield to slot back in and back up his ibrox game last year. Heard 2 more starters are doubtful but could be willing to risk them.

7.) 07 Dec 2019 08:44:41
If Davis is out we are doomed he is our best player.

8.) 07 Dec 2019 08:53:07
Big blow if Davis is out. How many times have we had this over the years in the lead up to OF games? Seems to be our players dropping like flies while theirs are coming back.



04 Dec 2019 18:57:44
No Barasic tonight - anyone any idea if he's injured or rested?


1.) 04 Dec 2019 19:19:54

2.) 04 Dec 2019 19:40:39
Small injury.

3.) 04 Dec 2019 21:59:15
Been taking pain killing injections on foot to play. Better be fit for sun because tonight shows how much we need him.

4.) 04 Dec 2019 22:43:42
Yes barisic has a foot injury and is touch and go to be fit for sunday. We badly need barisic to be fit for sunday.

5.) 05 Dec 2019 10:23:32
Wonder if his foot injury was a result of getting stood on during the goal celebration a few weeks ago.

6.) 05 Dec 2019 12:46:41
Cant remember what game but he took a couple of kicks in the same game on top of foot. Think it might have been hamilton.

7.) 07 Dec 2019 11:55:59
its amazing how times have changed. not long ago we would be hoping he was injured now we can't do without him.



01 Oct 2019 10:35:38
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.

Rangers - 20+ shots, 10+ on target, ZERO goals
Celtic - 2 shots, 1 on target, 1 goal.
That's why they are champions and win things and we can't/ don't - it's the wining mentality they have. You only have to look at Wednesday's games. Our arse collapsed when Aberdeen got a goal back. Hamilton scored an equaliser in the 90th minute and Celtic go straight up and score a winner.
It's a mentality we don't have. I standby to get abuse about how well we played etc, but, again, look at the score and above stats. Says it all. So gutted. could derail our season, players will be so deflated. Cue, the abuse.


1.) 08 Dec 2019 17:19:56
100% agree with you sir Struth its irrefutable.

2.) 08 Dec 2019 17:38:56
Bang on sirStruth.

3.) 08 Dec 2019 17:47:52
Totally spot on mate.



08 Dec 2019 16:21:50
I knew it, knew it - these missed chances would bite us in the arse. That'll be that then. Don't think we'll score, Forster too good.




05 Dec 2019 07:24:19
Woke up this morning really hoping last night's result was a dream but no, unfortunately not. Looking at last night, I think that answers anyone who says we can cope without Kamara - we simply can't. Sunday's game now takes on huge significance now as if we lose then it could derail our whole season, so, the question is, does Gerard stick with Hellander and Goldson or does he change one or both? Edmunson for his pace or Katic who doesn't stop and go looking for a foul when someone looks at him the wrong way? Thoughts?


1.) 05 Dec 2019 09:42:24
We must change the back 4 or its game over. They're a total bombscare. SG brings players in from the cold like Brandon Barker who then isint seen again. So please do the same with Edmunson and Katic.

2.) 05 Dec 2019 13:11:52
1974, why stop there, no-one got pass marks last night in the second half, maybe we should change the whole starting line-up?



04 Dec 2019 22:28:51
Anyone else listen to Gerard's post match interview? Concerning if you ask me - said the players can't handle the pressure, going 2-0 ahead went to the players heads etc. I was optimistic for Sunday prior to kick off tonight but just can't see it happening now - celtic are just far too consistent and will run at Goldson and Hellander all day and cause mayhem.




04 Dec 2019 21:14:11
Take the point now, we're shocking at the back.


1.) 04 Dec 2019 21:39:48
shocking through the team. jack thinking strolling about thinking he owned the place, flannigan well what can i say. denied a penalty too. how do we go from owning them in first half to that display in the second.

2.) 04 Dec 2019 21:42:34
No one got pass marks, heads went down after their first goal.

3.) 04 Dec 2019 21:48:52
Very poor tonight on that form the league is Celtics the league cup is Celtic’s and we’re not going to win the Europa cup either could well be a trophyless season again. Why on earth does SG wait so long to change things when it’s clearly not happening? And Ohno to the rescue seriously! What happened to Stewart he did the business last game then is not given a chance?

4.) 04 Dec 2019 21:48:55
We need to sort out that defending out why does goldson think he can play about at the back all the time and gets caught how many times these 2 Center backs have no pace!

5.) 04 Dec 2019 21:51:51
Tav, Helander and Goldson were very poor. Celtic will know our defence is our weekest link. What you going to do Gerrard for Sunday?

6.) 04 Dec 2019 21:54:56
Gerrard pisses me off with subs at weekend he says stewarts been brilliant in training then comes on and scores 2 then guess what dropoed next game and has a cheek to bring on that coward ojo who done **** all again.

7.) 04 Dec 2019 22:00:34
Awful second half performance.

Back 4 terrible. Goldson and Jack started the slide with being sloppy in possession. Flannigan was terrible. I know he hasn’t played but he should be better than that.

Aribo and Ojo just don’t do it for me and Stevie Gs subs were pointless. Why didn’t he stick Katic up front for last couple of minutes if he was bringing him on? Looking at the bench we had very little quality with the exception of Defoe.

8.) 04 Dec 2019 22:34:54
Whole team thought they had one it at 2-0, no pass marks. Davis and Jack could not pass water tonight.
Back four bottled it .
Need massive improvement in next two games.

How can a Rangers fan be "not overly disappointed" losing to that mob? They're worst game of the season and they still beat us. Let's look at this season - Celtic have beaten us in both games, with the next game at their place and they WONT be as bad again. Aberdeen away on Wed and we blew a 2 goal lead. We paid £7 million for Kent for these games, not v Hamilton or a poor Hearts team. I'm sorry, but unfortunately, Celtic have the psychological advantage over us. Yes, we played well, but history books won't show "rangers played better and should have won", they will show that they won again, their 10th trophy in a row.

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.

Don't think we can say we're better than them - played them twice this season and lost both. We played better than them on Sunday, but that was one game - I don't think they'll be that bad again.

Aribo was one of our better players on Wed but I agree, don't think the game will suit Aribo or Ojo. I'd go with
Tav, Goldson, Katic, Barasic
Jack, Davis, Kamara,
Arfield/ Stewart, Morelos, Kent.
