something is not write with the squad since the winter break could it be true about gerrard losing the dressing room.
I like gerrard but some serious questions need to be asked off him now
He is responsible for keeping team morale up but all i see him doing is hammering the players morale even when we do win some times he criticises them.
If the rumours are true and he has lost the dressing room then there is only going be 1 outcome and that involves gerrard leaving,
this could turn out to be a expensive and a turnover of a lot players again
for this reasaoan.

Are we not playing too deep Aribo and Kent especially also there is no desire and hunger to do the press we go through the motions till we get a goal and then just give in no question we got beat by a more hungrier team that wanted to work for each other and get the result fair play to them before the break we played the high press to tee now the work rate has gone down a few levels the skill is there for all to see you don’t win titles waiting on things to happen you need that midfield to get stuck in there play to a much quicker tempo I really hope sg gets them back playing to the standard we were at before The break .


2.) 13 Feb 2020 12:19:06
I think gerrard has been to loyal to some of these players and thay have let him down badly. he needs to change the formation of the team as all the other teams know how we play. i think the formation is good for playing in Europe but not in the league. now that it is almost over its time give a few of the fringe players a chance nothing to loose and it might surprise us all.


3.) 13 Feb 2020 13:11:05
we have totally capitulated since the winter break. Not for the first time. The early warning signs were there at the Stranraer and St Mirren. We were awful in both games. A serious inquest into what has happened required at Murray Park. Every single player can't suddenly go miles off form after a 3 week break. Every single player has been awful since the break which certainly points to the deressing room being lost. Gerard's decision making is baffling too and he needs to take responsibility too.


4.) 13 Feb 2020 15:44:40
Not surprised he’s losing the dressing room. One bad game and you’re dropped, unless you’re one of his pet players (Goldson, Kent, Aribo, Tav) then you can have as many as you want and never get bombed out. Then any time we lose because he is tactically inept he chucks the players in front of the bus and says “they didn’t want it enough” despite everyone knowing exactly how we will play and how to cause us problems.


5.) 13 Feb 2020 17:04:11
players looked very tired last night not using the full squad for lesser games kent has been a waste of money davis can't last 90 min morelos going back the way celtic have a massive squad with another 3 back this week we can't compete with that we put all our money 1 guy Kent and he failed big time don't beat hearts in the cup the season is finished.


6.) 14 Feb 2020 14:00:06
Big blue bear. Have to agree Kent has been a massive disappointment So far a total waste off money, Yes he scored a screamer against that Mob. But overall not good enough. We would lose millions if sold in the summer 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇦🇺👍⚽️😎.


7.) 14 Feb 2020 20:41:07
We do seem to be off the pace sharpness wise and it’s baffling tbh, the quick high press was killing teams. Our first XI is strong enough to beat anyone in the league, when we lose key players we def struggle and aren’t the same team in any phases of play. Hopefully we can get our best team on the park and get a run going again. Without pressure Celtic will continue to run over teams.


8.) 14 Feb 2020 23:24:29
Tired? Tired? they should get a real job working 12 hours a day for peanuts then tiredness might, just might be an excuse.

warburton remit at rangers was to get us promoted he done this but as for the rest of things in the job I certainly do not see the improvement he is ment to big on player development but the only player I see in our team that has developed further is mackay he is ment to be big on fitness but do not see this on the pitch looks the opposite on the field ment to be big on youth players yet none of our youth players seem to get a chance even when our first team stars are not performing was ment to add value to the squad on and off the field do not see any value in this squad of players part from mackay possibly rossiter if ever fit and maybe fordingham so not a lot of value added to the squad on and off the field so far
has to get us second in the leauge he is on course to do this.
so looking at the things 6 things above he is on course to achieve 2 out of 6
you can say he hasn't been giving money to spend but the money he has spent has not been spent Wisely

Player developmemt is over the course of multiple seasons not half a season. Fitness has definetly improved but like similar teams in the epl it is hard to keep high tempo for 90mins playing the way we do. Young players is 3-5 type plan, if they aren't close to being good enough not much he can do. Adding value is inevitable as the vast majority of the guys we got for free so any transfer fee is adding value. 2million for 22 players is pretty good in my book. i don't know if you expected people like forreter to kick on and be sold for 15mill and a team full of teenagers but its not going to happen. Improving the youth system would be 1 youth player a season getting into the 1st team aquad and adding value is signing someone for free and selling them for a couple of mill after a couple of seasons


2.) 16 Jan 2017 13:46:19
so who in this squad do you think will develop in to good enough player two sell in few years time as for youth players who says there are not good enough they surley deserve a chance to prove there are by replacing underperforming if your going to play this high tempo game then you need fast and fit enough players who are going to perform in a unit we got them for free and that's how much they will end up leaving for cause they not good enough to sell for profit on this form and yeh at least 1 or 2 younsters should get into first team a year but so far they arent


3.) 16 Jan 2017 17:36:05
Maybe none for an serious profit yet but the point i am making is that its a long game and these things take time. If we had loaned out the young guys and they were stars for championship teams then they would get a chance but none of them have really performed so not good enough yet

in Glasgow now


 

 

22 Sep 2015 21:07:13
i think on tonight's performance shows there is a long way to go before we can compete with average premier league teams never mind David king dreaming about challenging Celtic serious investment will be needed to do that
our defence is terrible Wilson should be dropped for ball instead seems to think he can stroll threw games

craigs8688

1.) 22 Sep 2015 22:32:44
To be fair I thought we played a good game apart from the defence and Halliday. Nothing went our way no luck. I'm not to fussed about the outcome our priority is winning the championship. If we do well in cups then it's a brucie bonus onwards and upwards RTID.


 

 

01 Aug 2015 10:40:26
eustace to be offered two year deal another bit of good business done by the club midfield looked light wait against hibs this will add protection for the defence would imagine this would mean halliday will move further forward in centre mid and replace law or holt or he could go to left wing where he played for Bradford this would be better option as boy can hit a ball and cross then if we could sign allan and replace law with him then our midfield would be very strong leaving mackay temps and aird to fight it out for right wing postion

Gerrard needs to now change the system for the leauge games it is not working 1 up front teams have now sussed us out sick of the poor performances in leauge has been going on for two long now something needs to change.

craigs8688

1.) 23 Feb 2020 15:33:50
He isn’t capable or he would have done it long ago.


2.) 23 Feb 2020 15:38:27
Why change the system now Craig? The leagues gone man. It should have been changed 5 weeks ago!


3.) 23 Feb 2020 15:55:32
Yeh should have been i seroiusly doubt him as a manger now and would look at getting a replacment.


 

 

20 Feb 2020 23:09:04
What a player hagi is going be he is a must for next season miles better than what are getting from kent so far this season.
For me we must look to the foreign market in the summer not english or scottish market for players there is good buys to be had in the foreign market if you look properly.
The atmosphere tonight was electric at ibrox tonight but why is when we seem to play leauge games a lot of time the place is really quite if we got behind the players every game and gave them that backing like tonight i think we would be a lot closer to celtic than we find ourselves now.

12 Feb 2020 22:25:40
For the money this club have spent we should be miles better than any other team in leuage bar celtic but we are not so who do we blame for this shambles of a team that been put together this is now the manager team so blame has got lie at his door now
He pick the team and tactics and has no plan b and never changes tactics.

craigs8688

1.) 12 Feb 2020 23:23:52
Craig’s we are check the points were mikes ahead but we have players who have lost form and just don’t have the players to step up look at our bench and Celtic have been reaping the benefits of champions league money for years so we are miles behind them financially.


2.) 13 Feb 2020 00:01:45
A month ago everyone in team was worh £10/ 20 million!? Players need a rocket up there backsides but we do have a good squad thanks to SG.


3.) 13 Feb 2020 01:24:53
Craig8688, if my memory serves me well we got put out of europa at the group stages, this time we have went further, i suppose that's gerrards fault also. eh.


 

 

05 Feb 2020 19:12:28
katic bombed out the team like he is to blame for the teams poor form to gerrard has got something against this lad even name checked him after last game for 1 mistake
how bout midfielders take the blame and wingers take the blame they have been dreadful recently
hopefully they prove me wrong tonight and we get back to our best cause we certainly need it.

craigs8688

1.) 05 Feb 2020 19:29:04
He has made 3 changes. Doesn't mean he blames Katic.


2.) 05 Feb 2020 19:31:19
3 clean sheets out of 4 n csnt put the ball in the net, let's drop katic 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️.


3.) 05 Feb 2020 19:33:18
Have to agree with you craig. there's definitely something personnel going on between them. When Goldson had a shaky patch, he never got dropped.


4.) 05 Feb 2020 19:48:11
Kamara is out too - although he deserves it as he's been too lethargic and caught in possession to often recently. Feel sorry for Katic - couple of mistakes, Gerard calls him out personally and then dropped. Seems Gerard can't wait to drop him for something. Goldson has improved to last season's performances but he made mistakes and kept his place. Anyway, I'm sure Edmunson won't let us down and hopefully the changes work and we get a result.


5.) 05 Feb 2020 19:56:18
What a load of bs, you guys honestly believe Gerrard can’t wait to drop Katic?!?! Seriously lol.
I like Katic but his distribution and decision making is the worst of all our CB’s and it’s been highlighted in last few games. Goldson is our best CB and hopefully he can form a quick partnership with Edmunson and it’s a clean sheet.


6.) 05 Feb 2020 19:56:43
What is it that some people cannot see? Katic is absolutely terrible. Makes everyone around him nervous. Yes he can win headers and the occasional tackle but his distribution And awareness makes him an absolute liability in games where we have the majority of the ball. That’s almost every game.


7.) 05 Feb 2020 20:30:52
Distribution? he's a centre half mate, not a playmaker. Not really meant to be one of his strengths. What I never understand is when he is playing well and people are praising him, why don't the people that don't rate him the now, come on here and say they dont. Why wait till he has one bad game. Guys been outstanding for the best part of his time with us in my opinion. And saying he has made three changes so not necessarily katic taking the blame? Kamara has been hoaching for a good few games. and polster was always going to lose his place to tav.


 

 

26 Jan 2020 16:49:41
For me the lack of quality in this rangers team when morelos doesn't play is worrying
For me the board have been to busy trimming squad when we should actually be signing a couple quality players if we want to win the leauge.
As a lone striker defoe doesn't cut it for me and am not excited at prospect of him playing more when morelos leaves.
team have been terrible today some these players should never play for us again they are not good enough to win titles always bottle it.

Vydra will be a good signing can also play behind the striker and has pace something we currently lack.

while the rumoured fee for kent is a big fee it is probably a fair fee for the lad considering teams are already looking at him if we can improve his game and he adds more goals and assists the lad will be sold for at least double this fee if not more.

yeh has been coming because of media highlighting everything he does never see them doing this with any other player. how the can see what happend as violent conduct is beyond me. Well we will soon find out if we can cope without him I bet any money we will struggle is his absence offers so much to the team.

well a guess we will soon find out if the ref got it right if appeals are lodged.
The amount of criticism aimed at morelos is terrible he is a class above anyone in our team we should be supporting the lad not slagging him off puts 100 percent in every game and like previous comments a wish we had more player like him and this is gerrard loves having at the club.
He is only 22 years of age so still has a lot to learn but weighing up the positives and negatives to his game then we defiantly need to try keep him at our club as long as possible.

to all the fans calling our star striker a idiot ect if it was not for that idiot that use call him then we wouldn't be anywhere near the top of the table we are now.

Who else in that team can score goals with the exception of Jermaine Defoe our team struggle to score without him that's how important he is to the team. When we loose Alfredo permantley we are going be in big trouble unless we spend a lot of money on a replacement he will be a big lose to the club.

He says its the defence that is costing us games
but yet goldson has played every single game this season
if he is saying its defence that is costing us then he is manger so sort it out.
the blame lies at the other end of the pitch if you ask me Ryan kent has not get any assists this season and only 6 goals been a waste of 7 million Liverpool must be laughing at us paying that amount.
We should have more than two strikers at our club and to reliant on Morelos.
We have not had enough creativity in midfield for a while now and then we get rid of candelias that was a mistake
I think the manager has now got to take the responsibility he is the one that picks the team picks the tactics trains the players and has been backed with a lot of money to build his squad and then turns on his players and blames them for everything that's going wrong.

This is has got to be down to the mangers critisim and the only way that is now going get fixed is either a new manger or gerrard getting rid of some players and start again the summer but has got stop critising the players contantly he is doing more damage every tim he does this.

Gerrard is still the man for the job but I do think the league title is gone for another season. I do think we should have spent the money available more wisely around the squad rather than pin our teams Hope's on 1 man to do everything and that is now showing with injuries etc.

Gerrard has brought a lot of his own players now he wanted Barker jones polster flanagan Stewart edmondson Grezda ojo king Murphy and the majority of these signings are not contributing much to the team there have been a lot of mistakes made in transfer market and we are paying the prise now as squad players not good enough to replace under performing players.

Also gerrard has still not learnt to make changes when things are not going our way we could all see for weeks that we need changes in team either that be personal or tactic wise Lennon has done it at celtic went 2 up front that is the diffrence that could decide where the title goes we need a plan b when things don't work.

No we should be looking at long term morelos replacement and getting someone in now could give them 6 months to settle in
Surley we must have been looking at who could replace morelos already so should have targets in mind.
