On the basis that Kamberi is likely to be our striker in Portugal, i reckon he "may" start against st johnstone on Sunday. It would seem logical? as he has only had a few sub appearences.

If he scores (plays well) on Sunday and does well against Braga, does he keep the jersey?

Morelos needs to know playing is not a given so I’m all for it, Morelos is way off form and it’s his general play aswell as his finishing, short on confidence and going back to petulant ways.

2.) 21 Feb 2020 15:55:50
No coincidence that the lads form has dipped since Defoe injury. Probably looking to the bench thinking who can replace me. In need of a few games rest i think get his hunger back. Let everything around him calm down and allow him to get his head straight.

3.) 21 Feb 2020 16:41:24
Morelos starts on sunday. Must win game.

4.) 21 Feb 2020 17:42:38
Kamberi isn’t in the same class as Alfie.
Sunday is a must win game so our best players have to start.

5.) 21 Feb 2020 18:12:23
Play kamberi and drop Kent he's been terrible recently.

6.) 21 Feb 2020 18:14:43
Mibi when Alfie on his game he is different class to Kamberi but last two games Kamberi has came on he has looked more dangerous than Morelos due to Morelos being off form which I think he needs to b dropped for a few games get his hunger bk and hopefully he will did the class he has again.

7.) 21 Feb 2020 18:19:44
Morelos will play on Sunday, why risk injury to our only fit striker available for Portugal.

8.) 21 Feb 2020 18:38:37

His form has not dipped, boy has 3 goals in 3 domestic games. Refereeing errors have cancelled 2 of those 3 out.

He is bang on form actually.

9.) 22 Feb 2020 00:45:18
Bearmode I must be watching the wrong team then cause the morelos i have been watching looks a yard off the pace. You rewatch the games from before xmas and he bullied every defender he played. His game is about so much more than just scoring goals. The lad looks like he has the weight of the world on his shoulders since winter break and its affecting his game.

10.) 22 Feb 2020 08:05:00
Morelos has only scored 12 league goals this season, that's garbage.

11.) 22 Feb 2020 08:44:24
I will agree he doesn't look as sharp! He will be back to best soon i'm confident, he's too good a player not to.


Just as well the league is only 1 out of 4 competitions we compete in. Without Morelos's goals we didn't reach a final which ultimately we were extremely unlucky not to win and we would not have made Europa League knockouts which is much needed revenue for our club.

So all things considered, 12 goals in the league is not 'garbage'.

12.) 22 Feb 2020 09:49:49
Morelos has been dire guys, I love him too but even his work rate and quality on the ball are miles off where they were.

13.) 22 Feb 2020 15:11:01
I think Alfie haa been playing with the weight of the world on his shoulders, speaking from experience recently i have been going through some rubbish in my personal life and in turn my football ( at amateur level no less) suffeared. Things personally have gotten better and my football has benefitted. No multiply this by 1000 at least for Alfie and i reckon we cut him some slack.

14.) 22 Feb 2020 22:39:59
Kri55 add to all the stuff here he has no family other than rangers round him. No wonder our league is poor. We get a phenomenal talent and he is targeted by everyone outside our club and even a small portion of our own fans give him hassle. would be enough to drive the thickest of skinned people running. I do hope he stays and Grace's our home and family with his presence for at least another season or 2 but honestly if I was him I would be gone end of the season.



09 Apr 2018 17:24:47
Not what i would regard as a rumour but Murty wil not be manager next season,
My son is friendly with a first team player (scottish) and i will not reveal his name to save him grief, But the team and Murty know it is only until end of season.

He has a contract until then only.
He was not given a 1 yr or any other contract it was purely until end of season.

Murty is popular amongst the team and powers that be and is to be offered improved terms on his under 20s role to continue there.

Disagree if you like but watch this space.

slim jim

1.) 09 Apr 2018 18:55:23
I think everybody and their dog knew it was only a contract until the end of the season as that's what it was. No big secrets there pal.

2.) 09 Apr 2018 18:59:38
Murty has a great future in the game but probably in a coaching roll? King basically told us all today a new man will be in charge soon and let’s get behind Murty and win the cup! 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

3.) 10 Apr 2018 12:50:28
Kenny Miller to st Mirren or Kilmarnock

4.) 10 Apr 2018 15:27:01
Why are we not clamouring for Steve Clarke, its a no brainer surely?!



31 Dec 2017 21:49:29
Here is a thought bears,

9 times out of 10 a manager brings a number 2 with him.

If we get a manager at end of season and he brings the number 2, what happens to jimmy nic?

Can't imagine jimmy will come just to get booted in June.
So, is murts being told he is going to be long term even though WE are told until end of season, or is the Irish gaffer lined up hence him not talking to scotland? Jimmy nic would already be in place and possibly involved in transfer business.

slim jim

1.) 31 Dec 2017 22:30:23
I reckon if it was oneil he would be in place already but the last thing you can do with this board is second guess them

2.) 01 Jan 2018 10:03:17
I reckon he’s taking a chance that murty can get the gig longer term. Is he still the Northern Ireland assistant? He would still have a job then

3.) 01 Jan 2017 12:11:29
Jimmy nicholl is right out of the blue.

Out of every person to choose from its jimmy nicholl. Definitely something weird about that one IMO.

Has Murty worked with him before?

4.) 01 Jan 2018 12:35:27
How is it weird, the guy played for us over two spells, been on our coaching staff before he has plenty of experience so all I can see is a good move

5.) 01 Jan 2018 12:48:12
Jimmy was doing the after dinner speaking when I was at the hospitality for the Aberdeen game last year.
So I'd say he clearly still had ties to the club and was a straight forward and easy process to get him in as a coach and that's why we appointed him.

6.) 01 Jan 2018 13:55:30
Ther would be comp for a club to sign the irland manager that's why gers won't just now

7.) 01 Jan 2018 14:38:20
He wouldn't still have a job if murty and him gets the boot in June as for the coaching staff of international teams like Northern Ireland Scotland exc are volunteers they do not get paid as they already have paid jobs with there clubs same as the players the only one to get paid are the managers as there higher don a full time basis. And jimmy n is only at Northern Ireland because of O'Neil the new manager there will bring his own staff with him.

8.) 01 Jan 2018 20:28:11
Jimmy nicholl was recommended by Walter Smith, hardly a strange appointment. Also Jimmy still is Northern Ireland assistant so still has a job. Also I imagine rangers are paying him much more in 6 months than he would get at Falkirk.

9.) 02 Jan 2018 11:49:23
Deanobear, utter nonsense. Assistants and coaches with international teams may be part time yes but not volunteers with no pay.

Not going to be celtic then lol
Hope we get Copenhagen.

25 Feb 2020 15:03:25
The fact of the matter is that we are 2nd best in Scotland.
Yes we have had success against them recently but we are still long way short over the course of the season.

Apart from Barasic, i don't think anyone of ours would get in their 1st 11 and that includes Geegs.

If anyone thinks otherwise then you are just kidding yourself.

slim jim

1.) 25 Feb 2020 16:31:28
Aye, you're right and we're all kidding ourselves. Have an aspirin.

2.) 25 Feb 2020 17:17:58
Got to agree slim Jim

As why would they put any of our players in a winning team at the minute
There blowing teams away and we’re struggling

The Covenanter who would you think would make there 1st 11 right now?

Like a say they have found a winning formula just now can’t see how any of our squad would make them any better
With the facts of it - were drawing against Sri Johnston beaten off hearts, drawing with Aberdeen And Killie

There team knows how to go out and win games when it matters and win the trophy’s unfortunately right now ours don’t just saying.

3.) 25 Feb 2020 17:49:11
Sorry added Killie in under the draw with Aberdeen
Meant we were also beat by Killie

But point was yeah can’t see how any of our squad would make there 1st 11

Same when we were winning 1st half of season I wouldn’t have taken any of there’s

Difference is now there players can see it through full season and ours can’t

Anyway depressing discussion

Hopefully we can get a result tomorrow and atleast make it through to next round in Europe would be nice 👍.

4.) 25 Feb 2020 18:02:07
Sweep 1, Gerrard will still be rangers manager for next season mate! There's not a shred of doubt about that pal!

5.) 25 Feb 2020 20:44:37
There is an element of doubt about that, if he is not given sufficient transfer money he would be crazy to stay and the question remains where is the cash coming from other than the sale of Morelos so there is doubt but odds are he will still be there.



13 Feb 2020 16:46:36
Considering Gary Mac takes most of the training, and Beale is the tactics man. Just what does SG actually do apart from continue to pick he's pets and throw the rest under a bus when things go tits up?

slim jim

1.) 13 Feb 2020 17:09:12
Slim Jim you clearly don't have a clue how things work then. The likes of WS, sir Alex and the likes didn't take training sessions. That's why you have a backroom team. Some folk really, have no clue. i'm due ditching this site its boiling my blood haha.



12 Feb 2020 18:49:08
Team for tonight,
Not overly impressed that Halliday is in but on the bright side, we won't have to suffer an appearance from Ojo or Barker as they are not even on the bench.

slim jim

1.) 12 Feb 2020 19:00:14
Slightly worried about burke giving halliday the run around. Other than that teams not bad. Still like davis in there aswel.

2.) 12 Feb 2020 19:05:30
Have a word with yourself slim. Who else you playing at left back if Barasic is out? Flanagan? The level of hatred towards Halliday on here is absolutely pathetic. Probably nobody in that dressing room who cares about the club as much as him and he isn’t half as bad as anyone here makes out. He’s not Barasic but he’s more than capable cover at domestic level. Get a grip man.

3.) 12 Feb 2020 19:10:28
No Kamara in squad either,?

4.) 12 Feb 2020 19:13:31
Get a grip? lol he is a man down. Never been a left back and never will. Just because he is a blue nose makes no difference. Not a lover of Flano but at least he can defend.

Did you see haliday the other day? headless chicken.

5.) 12 Feb 2020 19:20:29
cos he's one of the worse players ever to play for big deal he's a big rangers fan so what so is young doc big diff doc ca play football.

6.) 12 Feb 2020 19:33:01
One of the worst players ever to play for Rangers? What a ridiculous statement. Half the players from the banter years were far worse. Even some players from our glory years were worse. Bob Malcolm for example. Halliday will be fine tonight.

Also “never been a left back and never will” - I don’t think he’s ever claimed to be, he’s a midfielder! He’s doing a thankless task at left back and getting absolutely slaughtered for it by “fans. ” Absolutely sickening.

7.) 12 Feb 2020 19:37:17
Halliday might be a bit limited as a LB but he's certainly not 'one of the worst players to play for gers'
Think we'll win tonight.

8.) 12 Feb 2020 20:11:08
Here’s an idea - why don’t you wait until the game is finished before you tell everyone how crap Halliday is?

Maybe give the guy a chance?

Fans my as$.

9.) 12 Feb 2020 20:34:41
Herewego kamara needs a sit out the team i think been absolutely shockin last couple months. with arfield back firing and hagi coming in i think his game time could now be limited.

10.) 12 Feb 2020 20:35:01
Apart from anything else
I like the fact he was first man over there to help Kent out

Halliday is not the worst player ever to have played for us that’s a ridiculous statement to make

He can pass the ball and can take players on at this level
And he’s always in and about it

I like Halliday give the boy a break

We’re still not firing doing my head in

Cracking goal by Arfield - need more shots like that instead of trying to walk it in

2nd half is change things about - 60mins no later
Would have kamberi on and maybe Aribo off unless jack can’t play full 90 mins then it might be him subbed

Need Kent to get by his man more

But let’s see what 2nd half brings

Still sticking to 3.0 hopefully see us push more in 2nd half again.

11.) 12 Feb 2020 20:35:14
Halliday is decent.

12.) 12 Feb 2020 20:35:21
Mrgrumpy you aren't half wrong there bud. we've had some belters haven't we 😂.

13.) 12 Feb 2020 20:47:54
Glad to see a bit of sense prevailing here lads. 👏.

14.) 12 Feb 2020 20:52:06
Ffs man this is what I’m talking about. Slate half the team before a ball is even kicked. I’ll leave it at that because if I write anything else it won’t get posted.



12 Feb 2020 13:32:13
Kilmarnock tonight.

I know a lot of you guys travel from Lanarkshire (motherwell hamilton etc. ) and the likes of wishaw.

If you normally use the A71, just be aware that the road is closed at Newmilns and the Diversion is a nightmare adding at least 30 mins to journey.

Hibs are holding back until they get a replacement.
That is why deal is only "in principle"

Cracking young full back. Should be deputy for Tav next year unless tav goes before then and would probably still need to be a deputy as not quite ready yet.

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.

Could easily have been out of sight.
Davis is very poor with passing and too slow.
Kent, did we really pay £7 million for him?

Still there for us though so let's go.

Disagree C_of
More interest in how good a deal than who manufactures.

Having a manfacturer giving us half as much as another would be of no interest to the club therefore so long as the £ and deal is right for the club then it makes no difference.

As for yet another SGL poll? still a joke.

Another poll?

The site will soon be known as the SGL poll site. Getting beyond a joke now.
Especially when as irrelevant as this one.
Nobody cares who actually manufactures so long as the club gets the best deal.

We better hope Borna makes it.
If we need to rely on Halliday at LB then Francisco Trincao will take him to bits if they play him.
I can never understand why we play guys out of position.
