Very sore one today, but for individual mistakes we would have taken at least a draw from the match. Celtics second goal was a disgrace, you should never be beaten by a long hopeful punt up the park and what Goss was doing for their third was unbelievable.

He just let Edouard walk into the penalty area an have a free shot at goal. And Windass once again showed that he is far too often a passenger when we need him most. When you compare their middle 3 and ours it really is a no contest at the moment. I know a lot of fans are wanting us to sign Goss permanently but would he get in the Celtic team? I don't think so therefore we should be looking for better.

Murty should have changed it a bit sooner for sure.

Positives to be taken are we certainly are. Lot closer. Celtic can no longer just turn up and roll is over. And for me the biggest positive was the performance of docherty, I thought he was immense. If we could add a bit of muscle in beside him next season we will be in good shape.

Zikos, one of your final comments (Celtic can no longer just turn up and roll is over) seems to be at odds with what say before it and what actually happened.


2.) 12 Mar 2018 13:23:52
Zikos, we have better in Dorrans, Jack and McCrorie plus Rossiter, but sadly they are all injured!


3.) 12 Mar 2018 21:48:01
Styab - I just think that we could have got something out of the game if it hadn't been for a couple of (crucial) mistakes. I think we are a lot closer to them now and they can no longer just turn up and win, they actually have to put a shift in and like yesterday ride their luck.

Saying that - for us to be better than them we need to improve the midfield three. that's where I think the game (and most gasmes) was won/ lost.

Doherty was class, Goss just didn't perform and Windass was a passenger. I know he has scored a lot of goals lately but still don't think he is a number 10.


4.) 14 Mar 2018 12:02:17
Zikos one poor performance from Goss doesn't suddenly make him a bad player, also it looked like Murty asked him to sit back for more cover and that's not his strengths he is far better off as holding midfielder who likes to get forward.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but didn't Cummings only play well in the championship, I can't remember him doing anything in the SPL. And so I don't get all the hype for what's essentially a really good championship player. If we get him on loan, then fine, but I wouldn't take a risk on him if we had to buy him as he has never performed at this level.

zikos

1.) 07 Jan 2018 22:43:45
Would b great signing hope we get him.


2.) 08 Jan 2018 07:25:19
Zikos, Cummings was only 18 when His got relegated and only broke into their team in the playoffs, where he scored their two goals against Hamilton.


3.) 08 Jan 2018 10:02:37
I'm not a fan of Cummings tbh. He comes across as a wee bed, much like Griffiths and would not want him near us. Anyway he hasn't kicked a ball down south. Also stories of late night drinking etc apparently. I think you guys are right when you say he stood out in the championship and not in the top flight. I think everybody remembers him lifting his game against us and assumed that was his normal form, which clearly is not the case. I'd leave well alone.


4.) 08 Jan 2018 11:52:08
If Cummings was half as good for us as Griffiths has been for them, it's a yes from me.


5.) 08 Jan 2018 14:43:45
I'm pretty sure Cummings only came into the Hibs team in the second half of the season where they were relegated, and even at that the majority of his appearances were from the bench. He was sold in the summer after the were promoted so he hasn't really had time to prove his ability in the SPL, however he hasn't exactly been lighting up the Championship down south. I reckon he would work well with Morelos up front for us but my preference would be to give MOH a shot through the middle with Morelos.

Does anyone else think we won’t sell Morelos in this window?

I actually don’t think these guys have been brought in to replace Morelos, but to supplement him.

Roofe is not going to play 60 games per year due to his history with injuries and Itten for me seems like another option like Kamberi.

I think he will keep Morelos and possibly play 2 up top in some games.

Time will tell!

zikos

1.) 05 Aug 2020 07:17:57
I think he’s gone, on current form Morelos will not be in the side with those two brought in, his value is on the way down and will only go further down as long as it continues like it is. Love the guy but his time is up as a rangers player and it’s better that way for him and us. Fresh challenge for us both.


2.) 05 Aug 2020 07:28:19
Zikos, cedric itten is miles more prolific a goalscorer than flo kamberi mate, streets in front of him. I'm a massive fan of morelos but he wants to leave and there's no doubt in my mind now he will leave if rangers valuation is met. Gerrard will play 1 striker through the middle flanked by our 2 attacking no.10's. I don't think gerrard will waver from his preferred system.


3.) 05 Aug 2020 07:34:02
I agree with your comments on itten and Roofe but think Morelos is on his way out. I am not sharing the same optimism as others on here, because although Roofe is an excellent player he is injury prone and question is, will he stay on the park. Itten I will reserve judgement on have not seen enough of him to decide. Looking at this another way, we have lost a £17m striker and replaced him with a £3m striker one of which is injury prone, but fingers crossed.


4.) 05 Aug 2020 08:02:27
Morelos will leave this window if acceptable valuation offer received. Really hope he plays and does well in Germany tomorrow.


5.) 05 Aug 2020 08:14:16
If we brought in one striker then you would expect alfredo to stay but Roofe and Itten on the same day, Really think thursday will be alfredos last game. wouldn't be suprised if the deals done, and they have asked for the transfer to go through after tomorrows game.


6.) 05 Aug 2020 08:28:41
SGL, from what I’ve seen he doesn’t look like anything special, no where near Morelos’s level and certainly not a first 11 player.

With that in mind, if Morelos leaves then it would leave us only Roofe as our first pick striker and like I said he isn’t playing 60 games per year.

Just a thought, but I don’t think he will be sold in this window and if he is then I think we will buy another striker.

I think Itten has been brought in as plan B it to play 2 up top and if that’s the case then again we need more strikers.


7.) 05 Aug 2020 08:29:07
He'll need to adapt his system at times coop otherwise he'll lose us the title. I think Gerrard can't wait to get rid of morelos to be honest. 👍.


8.) 05 Aug 2020 08:59:45
The sooner he does leave the better.

I want to be able to thank him not detest him.


9.) 05 Aug 2020 09:32:01
I'm really not getting where the feeling that Roofe is injury prone is coming from . He did pick up an injury last season, which along with C.V. restricted his appearances, but looking at his record over the previous 5 seasons, he is averaging almost 40 games a season, not something an injury prone striker could manage.


10.) 05 Aug 2020 09:36:55
SGL he’s far more prolific than Kamberi? Their records are pretty much identical over the last 5 yrs so how can he be far more prolific? From the very little to nothing I and we know about him he looks like he can be improved and coached into a better footballer but to say he is far more prolific is wrong. “Currently” he’s not and stats back that. He did have a better year last season 100%.


11.) 05 Aug 2020 10:01:16
If he goes I think we might loan another striker, no secret Gerrard wants Brewster loan.


12.) 05 Aug 2020 10:16:49
Just going by the last 2 years ride has had serious injuries which has limited his game time.

People saying Slfredo will be leaving because we have brought in 2 strikers but we have already let Kamberi leave all be it a loan deal.

So that’s 2 out 2 in - I fail to see how we have strengthened unless Morelos stays. Fingers crossed he stays.


 

 

01 Aug 2020 13:37:28
Watching the game today, I think any Morelos suitors will be happy for him to play for Rangers atm to build up sharpness and get a bit leaner.

zikos

1.) 01 Aug 2020 13:47:58
If we can get 17mil for him we'd have to bite their hand off. 👍.


2.) 01 Aug 2020 13:57:45
Kind of on the fence with him leaving, especially as us not having any strikers. Think selling him would be too risky expecting any striker to hit the ground running.

Actually quite surprised not to see Sturbridge at Ibrox. I take it he never got on with Gerard during their Liverpool days?


3.) 01 Aug 2020 14:21:26
Morelos has been rotten today, way off the pace. Looks unfit and fat to be honest. 👍.


4.) 01 Aug 2020 14:34:35
Link up play was good the day and he set up the goal.

What is that background noise on RTV all about?

So annoying, had to turn it over to Premier Sports to watch the match.

They need to get that sorted!

zikos

1.) 22 Jul 2020 20:47:54
Its supposed to be crowd sounds.


2.) 22 Jul 2020 21:03:08
Yeah I get that but it’s too loud or something. It’s like a constant applause or something.

I think Premier is a bit better, not quite as annoying.


3.) 22 Jul 2020 21:24:10
Signed up for RTV today as season ticket holder. Can’t get game though. Any help?


4.) 22 Jul 2020 22:29:23
Bruise bear I never got game via season ticket either.


 

 

10 Jun 2020 19:46:19
Love it when people say - go and get a Gattuso type player in.

Why stop there, just go and get a Maldini type defender, Zidane type midfielder and shearer type striker? Oh that’s right because they don’t grow on trees and every team in world football is looking for them!

zikos

1.) 10 Jun 2020 20:47:32
I think you’ve missed the point pal, it’s more in relation to attributes and mentality. Oh btw you missed Messi and Ronaldo!


2.) 10 Jun 2020 22:11:10
I don't think you get the point. Attributes and mentality is what makes a player - there is nothing else!

Was actually thinking about a different era when Gattuso was mentioned.


3.) 11 Jun 2020 00:44:00
What about getting a Stanley Mathews type or a couple of Georgie Bests in the ranks . can't be impossible he played for Hibs remember 🤔😂.


4.) 11 Jun 2020 02:00:39
Zikos. I understand where you are coming from. The difference is Gattuso did play for Rangers. We know what he brought to the team. That’s why I mentioned his type. Maldini, Zidane, etc, were top notch players that unfortunately did not play for Rangers.


 

 

12 May 2020 19:01:33
The only thing I read into today’s result, is that a lot of clubs (especially in championship) were offered “incentives” to vote for the resolution. They knew that an independent investigation would uncover those offers and make them guilty for accepting them! It would have been equivalent of turkeys voting for Christmas.

zikos

1.) 12 May 2020 19:37:56
The ICT chairman was offered a very attractive role with your club to vote against it. Is one more wrong than the other?


2.) 12 May 2020 20:01:20
Was he trophy hoarder? 🤔.


3.) 12 May 2020 20:19:18
For me, what this highlights is how widespread the corruption truly is.

Not sure how/ if things will proceed but one thing for sure is, without an independent investigation- the SPFL directors can’t clear their names and will forever be seen as corrupt and untrustworthy. Their positions may already be untenable and Scottish football will struggle for years to come to rebuild any form of trust.


4.) 12 May 2020 20:20:26
Yes he was mrgrumpy, or I suppose that's just another lie by the SPFL.
Do you guys never get weary of the nonsense your club feeds you? It just so happens it's season ticket selling time, they need to get your blood boiling to make the sales they so desperately need just to keep the door of the rented stadium open.


5.) 12 May 2020 20:39:46
zikos, that reply sounds almost as convincing as the the reply given by Deontay Wilder when he was asked why he got his arse kicked by The Gypsy King.


6.) 12 May 2020 21:21:38
Rented stadium trophy hoarder the stadium is not rented ya 🤡🤡🤡🤡.


7.) 12 May 2020 22:00:25
TH - I didn't post a reply just a further comment. Don't know what your talking about.

You may view it as a success because 2/ 3 of the stakeholders voted against an investigation. I view it as 1/ 3 of the stakeholders don't trust their leadership. Any organisation with that amount of distrust is destined to fail.


8.) 13 May 2020 10:53:03
How many times did you post on this site yesterday trophy hoarder? Yet you claim your not obsessed? 🤔
No I don't trust what the SPFL have been saying, neither do a good few clubs in the SPFL. Christ even the sheep thought the SPFL should be investigated!


9.) 13 May 2020 17:34:26
Trophy hoarder, the five way agreement states celtic have got to be handed ten in a row at all and any cost. , mate.


10.) 14 May 2020 07:49:32
Trophy, i'm going to let you know the same as i let one of your mates know, rangers fc have a waiting list of fourteen thousand blue noses on list for season books, so no the club don't need to put out the bull that others do, to get support.

Personally would sign both Dykes and Cosgrove.

Think a 2 man pairing of either one of those guys and Morelos would run riot against anyone in this league!

So that lad isn’t being offered what he was promised. He still has options. Sign the deal on offer, Do what Stuart Armstrong did and only sign short term deals so that the club has to re/ negotiate better terms pretty quickly or lose you or leave for a bigger contract elsewhere.

If the boy does leave and becomes a star in another league then the person that has allowed our young talent to go for pennies should have their contract terminated.

I take it you don't run a successful business then RFC92 - Just giving away multi-million pound assets for next to nothing. You wouldn't be in business very long!

The fact is even players playing in the SPFL are valued at several million pounds and if we had offered the lad what he had wanted then he would have stayed.

I personally think we didn't want to take the risk and offer him the same as Chelsea in case he didn't develop into a 1st team regular or it breaks a wage structure.

If it was because of the former then it shows that we have zero faith in our coaches assessments of or youth players potential and back to the original point - Bad Business management.

The point wasn’t regarding the boys commitment to the club - it was regarding the business decision to let a multi-pound asset leave for next to nothing.

How would you feel if we let Morelos leave for 500k?

As I said before, letting young talent leave for next to nothing can be very bad business.

I would take Boyle for RW. He is in the last year of his contract so could get him for less than £1M.

Obviously Coldo - I know that when a player leaves then someone has to take their place that’s just a stupid comment.

My point is I think the starting 11 and squad generally will be weaker coming out the transfer window if we sell Morelos.

How do you plan to challenge Celtic if you weaken the team?

Neither Roofe or Itten is at the level of Morelos when he is on form. That’s my point.

Personally I still don’t think we will sell Morelos. I think think (and hope) these guys have been brought in to bolster the squad for what is going to be an incredibly hectic season.

I think I’m more of a realist than an optimist.

Irvger, if we sell Morelos do you still think we will be more of a goal threat?

Personally I think if we sell Morelos we will come out the transfer window weaker although definitely a lot more consistent - I don’t see any of the new boys sitting out as many games as Morelos.

Other than Borja, what service?

Hagi and Kent are not going to provide a lot of assists this season, they tend to shoot on sight rather than create chances for others.

That is why Morelos (when in his game) is so important, because he creates a lot of his own chances.
