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.



07 Jan 2018 20:43:38
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.


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.

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!


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.


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.



28 Feb 2020 21:02:56
Didn’t realise the Europa League was so lucrative. Rangers to earn over £12M for the game against Leverkusen! Made up of TV rights and gate receipts.


1.) 28 Feb 2020 21:50:03
Nonsense, unless its 500 pound a ticket.

2.) 28 Feb 2020 22:02:42
Not if the TV money is worth over £11M.

3.) 28 Feb 2020 22:22:49
Zikos you r misunderstanding it mate.

4.) 28 Feb 2020 22:32:44
Tv money of 11.4 million shared between 16 clubs. its divided by country as I explained further down. Rangers share just over one million.

5.) 28 Feb 2020 22:54:11
tv rights in germany are very lucrative.

6.) 29 Feb 2020 00:10:13
Only regurgitating what I read in sky sport news - the 20 million I think is the total so far but i'm no expert. If it is that sort of figure unless Celtic spend 100 million that's enough to get is with them.

7.) 29 Feb 2020 05:01:22
13.4 million am sure the pot is. Divided by 16 teams left in the comp. so far including 8 home game gate receipts we have prob made close to 20 mill.

8.) 29 Feb 2020 08:00:13
Yep misread how the money would be split. Sorry if I got anyone’s hopes up 😔.

9.) 29 Feb 2020 09:45:31
Apology accepted zikos. Anyways it's money in the back pocket and we need it.

10.) 29 Feb 2020 10:48:04
Zikos it’s still good money in pot we need.
If you want to work it out in future europa league rules are very good. Lists all rules, bookings, prize money per round etc.
For example if we beat Bayer we get another 1.5 million. Then round of eight tv money figure is divided between countries in last eight, can only be one Scottish club, so big tv money again.

45 mins to save your Rangers career SG!


1.) 05 Feb 2020 20:34:38
He doesn't know how to. Teams have figured us out and now they have, shown us up for what we are - rubbish.

2.) 05 Feb 2020 20:34:53

3.) 05 Feb 2020 20:39:20
Zikos no matter what happens this season gerrard will be there next year.

4.) 05 Feb 2020 20:43:14
Absolute nonsense!

5.) 05 Feb 2020 20:47:02
Bollocks to what? Every team bar Hearts who had a go, have parked the bus and we ran out of ideas. Hearts beat us cause they wanted it more. Maybe it's heat of the moment while typing but before we know it, Celtic will be too far ahead. Watching Rangers is bad for your health.

6.) 05 Feb 2020 21:05:01
He will only be here next season if he makes a fight of this title race, and so far that doesn't seem likely. Hope I'm wrong but were running out of steam at the halfway point!

7.) 05 Feb 2020 21:15:53
Think you’re right typing in heat of moment never a great idea.

8.) 05 Feb 2020 21:50:02
I was typing in the heat of the moment - but after the match has finished I still feel the same. SG was spared by a bit of brilliance from young Hagi! That won't happen every game!

Hopefully the second half performance will spark this team into life, We need to play with that type of tempo until we're out of sight in games.

9.) 06 Feb 2020 07:04:31
Zikos, that should happen a lot more times this season from hagi mate.



13 Dec 2019 08:59:52
My only concern in the team in recent weeks is that Morelos seems to be the only one chipping in with goals. We need more from the other forwards. I thought this was one of the main reasons to us not competing fully last year.

Hopefully SG addresses this in the new year and history didn’t repeat itself.


1.) 13 Dec 2019 09:14:56
I agree. Kent needs to up his game as does Arfield Ojo and Aribo in the goal scoring front. To me Kent has only had one or two good games since he returned.

2.) 13 Dec 2019 09:40:02
I think one of the problems is the dip in form with Arfield. He doesn't seem to be firing on all cylinders at the moment. I would give him a rest over the coming games and give Stewart a run out on the right wing, and stick Aribo back in midfield.

Stewart isn't pacey, but he is clever and has a knack of finding space and can contirbute to the goals.

3.) 13 Dec 2019 16:08:17
Arfield was brilliant last night. Was decent against Celtic too. The drop back into the midfield 3 seems to have helped.

4.) 13 Dec 2019 17:30:24
I agree swag, thot he was excellent last night and on sunday. More like the arfield of last season.

Would love the Laudrup brothers! Michael has managed at the highest level and done well. Wasn’t long ago he was touted as the next Real Madrid manager. And Brian as assistant would be phenomenal.

Not sure about Rino - don’t think he did particularly well in his previous roles / feck knows how he got the Napoli job!

I know Gio won the league a few years ago but so did Frank De Boer and what’s happened to him. Don’t think the Dutch league is a good measure of success.

Give me the Laudrup brothers any day!

For me Davis was the best player in Scotland the 1st half of the season. Faded the second 1/ 4 of the season as did everyone else at Ibrox.

I think he still has something to offer and is still above Kamara in the pecking order.

Can’t afford to loan him out to PL club for a few reasons, we would need more than a few million to replace him and if he was to fail his value would plummet lower than what it is just now.

Personally would bring back McCoist to work with the lad to give him some specialist 1 to 1 striker coaching. Because hubs finishing and composure in front of goal does need sharpening. He didn’t get anywhere near enough league goals last year.

I think McCoist was brought in by sir Alex Ferguson to coach Rooney at Man Utd. Think he would be happy to do a similar role here.

And maybe done anger management classes on how to improve his temperament. He needs to learn the best way to hurt opposing defenders is to score and not react to anything. Then when they get physical with him till about the ground like most South American’s.

The boy is a prospect nothing more! Has he even played a competitive match?

Not to say the boy won’t be a talent but let’s face it he probably won’t. When you look at the players we have had on loan recently. They all came with much bigger reputations than Bassey and every single one of them failed.

Therefore we need to be signing first team ready players and let players like Bassey make up the numbers this season and fingers crossed he will turn out good but I wouldn’t be betting on it this season.

Bankie we have lots of problems with this team - where do you want me to start?

No back up in the full back positions, no settled central defensive partnership after 2 years of SG, a winger/ forward in Kent that doesn’t create or score enough goals, no natural right winger And all of our goals coming from a player who acts like he doesn’t want to be here and spends as much time suspended as he does on the pitch.

I think if we could get him for 1.5M then we should definitely consider it for the same reasons you mentioned. Sometimes when we are desperate for a goal and you know we are going to flood the box we need that aerial threat that atm we simply don’t have.

When you think how much money we have squandered over the last few years, this type of deal just makes sense. A young, powerful lad that is proven at this level.

Gers1978 - it could be a positive. Maybe if the players we already have up their game enough in the first couple of months then SG won’t bring anyone in to replace them. Give the current crop a bit more motivation to perform.

Blue blue sea - yes sometimes you need to bench players to aide in their development. Especially when they are in poor form. If not all you are doing is crushing their confidence. Bad game after bad game is not good for their development. You have to nurture young talent. Know when it’s right to rest them and know when they can be unleashed. Eventually they will learn their craft and be able to sustain a high level of performance for 30+ games but our youngsters are way off that.

Be honest how many good games did you see either of Kent or Aribo play last year - maybe 5. Not good enough and put simply bad management/ coaching.

Regarding McCrorie going backwards that also lies at SG’s door. He goes from being a “Lion” against Celtic (SG’s words) to not being good enough and being replaced by King, who was clearly injured. Wtf!

When Jack, Kamara and David were not on form he could have given one of them a rest but no - we had no options because he sent those boys out in loan when they should have been developing under his guidance. Terrible management and BIG mistake.

Hopefully he has learned these lessons but wouldn’t be fussed if he left tomorrow. He is learning his craft at management and unfortunately for us he is using Rangers as a platform to makes these mistakes so that he is better equipped for his dream job.

Well for me Rangers should not be a classroom for any manager to learn their craft. We should have an experienced and successful manager guiding the club domestically and in Europe.

That’s my view.

As for SGL more silly, optimistic views rather than being honest and realistic. Hagi has never scored more that 10 goals in a season but this is the year he will!

This year for us to have a chance we need him and Kent to be close to 20.

Berkshireblues, SG has signed enough players for 2 teams. How come we didn’t have a squad good enough to compete? Because he keeps signing utter gash from Liverpool reserves and the likes on loan, whilst letting good promising talent go out on loan. He brings in King and let’s McCrorie and Doherty go on loan! Wtf! He let's candeias go and brings in Ojo on loan again wtf!

He needs to bring in 1st team ready players and Get the likes of Kent, Aribo etc on the Bench where they belong. They might develop into absolute superstars, but atm they are far from that.

Sorry my bad regarding the league cup final - feck knows why I had that as a semi final!

SGL I don’t think we can win the league because of the lack of goals. You seem so positive that we can, can you please give us some insight into how things are going to change, because I just can’t see it.

Morelos will probably get around 25 goals, Defoe 10, Kent 5, Arfielf 5, Aribo 3. Is that enough to win the league? By that could we would need one of the best defences this league has ever seen and win every game 1-0 or 2-0.

I just can’t see it.

SGL, where are the goals coming from?
