Sadiq better get up to match sharpness. won't be in the squad against Maribor because he played in the youth team tonight. we don't want to have only 1 striker in the squad for the Europa league play off if we get there.

Believable2 Unbelievable3

14 Aug 2018 22:44:06
Is that your opinion he won’t be in squad or a fact?

Agree1 Disagree2

14 Aug 2018 22:46:54
Just back from that. Lost 2-1. Sadiq hooked at half time after being booked for diving. He very much looked like the same player we saw v St Mirren. Enough said.

Agree2 Disagree2

14 Aug 2018 23:39:41
The big man looks terrible, he can't be as bad as we've seen. hooked tonight, first touch horrendous, can't keep his feet.
Just pay the cash and get Big Lafferty back to where he belongs .

Agree2 Disagree2

15 Aug 2018 01:48:52
Mprent1111 what a ridiculous statement. How can he play on a tues, travel, then be ready to be in a squad on thurs? Some recovery that would be.

Agree2 Disagree1

15 Aug 2018 07:16:35
Here we go again . the big man has played 50 mins with us scored a goal and made one. Stevie warned us again with this player to be patient and Stevie beleive s in him. His previous manager said one moment he was world class the next the opposite but can change a game in an instant and the opposition have not got a clue how to handle him. His confidence must be shattered just now as against st mirren he tried a couple of step overs and tied himself in a knot. The whole stadia erupted in llaughter which can’t be good for the boy so he has to come back from that. A few weeks ago people were on here demanding he got afredos place when we hadn’t even seen him so we have to be patient and give the lad a chance. please bears.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2018 07:20:03
Gav blurbcert to be in squad v maribor.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2018 07:38:14
He played 45 minutes. He will most likely make the bench.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2018 07:53:53
Gavblue if he can't play 45mins on tue spend a few hours travelling and then play 20 - 30mins from the bench on thursday. The boys a joke and should be no where near the club. Obviously if morelos gets injured he maybe play more but even then a pro player should be able fit enough to cope.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2018 08:18:03
Can we please give the young boy time, he needs to adapt to the pace of the game and get up to match fitness! To quick to job on players.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 13:21:30
Just seen on SSN website that we're linked with Gareth McCauley.
Would be great signing along with Lafferty as bags of experience and a very honest professional.

Believable7 Unbelievable17

14 Aug 2018 13:45:59
Gareth McCauley? Who is 38?

Agree8 Disagree9

14 Aug 2018 13:53:00
Was this rumour not going around months ago? Would be good backup for katic and solid goldson.

Agree12 Disagree8

14 Aug 2018 14:28:00
He may be 38 but could be a solid addition to the squad.
As long as not expecting premiership wages£££.

Agree6 Disagree9

14 Aug 2018 14:29:13
Diego Reyes and Serdar Tasci are still both free agents. They would both be excellent signings especially on a free.

Agree5 Disagree8

14 Aug 2018 14:45:22
Iv no doubt he could do a job, my worry is at 38 it’s far more difficult to be match fit/ sharp when your a fringe player at that age and you are needed from the start to cover an injury or suspension; it’s difficult enough for younger players.
I think we need to aim higher but our defence has been outstanding so far but if 1 of our 2 halfs need replaced the standard has to be close to both of them with McAulay good enough for 4th choice for me.

Agree5 Disagree4

14 Aug 2018 14:45:25
McCauley would be a solid signing for the season push the other two guys all the way for starting slot.

Agree3 Disagree12

14 Aug 2018 14:45:33
Tasci no but reyes would be a great signing. Likely to want silly wages though.

Agree2 Disagree6

14 Aug 2018 16:54:29
Diego Reyes whos 6 foot 2 and weighs 65kg? Boys built like Earthworm Jim - I'd assume he would lack the physicality for Scottish Football.

Serdar Tasci, Mehhh maybe. Doubt either are on Stevie's radar though.

Agree5 Disagree3

14 Aug 2018 17:54:25
Is Barisic able to play for us if we progress in the Europa league?

Agree1 Disagree3

14 Aug 2018 18:21:48
If we make it to group stage, he will be available.

Agree2 Disagree1

14 Aug 2018 22:29:57
I agree with bigandy2310 Diego Reyes would be an outstanding signing- he’s only 25 would act as cover for Goldson and Katic- if it worked out superb if not least we could sell him on for a few quid! At that age he’s quality and worth a shout!

Agree1 Disagree2

15 Aug 2018 06:04:55
Haven’t we learned our mistakes with Mexicans? Rather see a good offer put forward for John Souttar or McKenna.

Agree0 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 23:22:25
It's fair to say that every Rangers fan wants a striker and have expressed that striker is to be a certain Kyle Lafferty

Maybe our creative midfielder should also be his fellow countryman Steve Davis unless Stevie G knows of any better creative midfielder

Let's just pay this €750,000 (£650 000) for OUR Kyle and bring him home.

Believable8 Unbelievable25

14 Aug 2018 01:27:58
Well the thing is I'm a fan and I definitely do not want lafferty.

Agree15 Disagree16

14 Aug 2018 03:20:19
I definitely do not want Lafferty could not get a game for Birmingham in the championship was such a great striker Norwich let him go on a free. £750,000 for a player to sit on the bench no thanks.

Agree15 Disagree14

14 Aug 2018 06:07:44
Would rather we went for the Bosnians. Lafferty if he comes could bw battling it out with Sadiq for 2nd choice striker.

Agree10 Disagree9

14 Aug 2018 06:10:20
Also davis not coming nevwr was. Arfield is being used as our creative mid.

Agree10 Disagree5

14 Aug 2018 06:41:18
Lafferty scored a bunch of times last season - including 4 I think against them - for a mediocre Hearts team. Then a fantastic finish against them again at the weekend. Scored plenty at International level too. And is a Rangers man. Scored some key goals for us first time round and is a much better player now than when he left. What exactly about that doesn't sound good?

Agree15 Disagree8

14 Aug 2018 07:38:11
Lafferty has had his time at Rangers, and yes he was good. Yes he scored more goals against them than anyone, but I'd still rather Stevie G went for someone else.

I don't think Lafferty is the answer; I think SG can find better players out there. He's proven he can do that so far.

With every new manager of recent times there's been a clamour for old players returning. No. let's move forward.

Agree6 Disagree11

14 Aug 2018 07:50:26
Knows the league, knows the club, knows how to score, very low cost and scores against celtic. What is the problem. Get him signed.

Agree11 Disagree3

14 Aug 2018 08:05:18
Would rather we went for 2 Bosnians you have never seen play? Kyle lafferty knows the club and the league. We need depth and lafferty will know he isn't first choice but he will get on with it and work hard.

Agree11 Disagree5

14 Aug 2018 08:07:43
trd66 Alan McGregor?

Agree4 Disagree4

14 Aug 2018 08:26:33
trd66 agreed i like lafferty too but i really think we should look further afield for a younger striker so we may get a good few seasons out of them and maybe even a sell on profit hope lafferty if he stays at hearts keeps banging them in against that lot .

Agree4 Disagree6

14 Aug 2018 08:26:36
Move forward like we did with McGregor?

Agree5 Disagree3

14 Aug 2018 09:43:07
We have a young striker in el buffalo. Need experience and lafferty has alot. He has won titles with us.

Agree6 Disagree3

14 Aug 2018 10:15:30
Lafferty or Morelos being discussed a lot if he comes, but on Saturday Laff actually occupied the space currently being filled by Ejaria in a blue jersey. I can’t see why he couldn’t fill that spot for us in a number of games this year? He’s got more to offer than the young Liverpool loanee.

Agree7 Disagree5

14 Aug 2018 12:12:31
Lafferty is a no brainer. Get him signed now.

Agree4 Disagree3

14 Aug 2018 12:14:44
We have signed so many new players, we don't need another midfielder. Huge squads inevitably fail. If anyone else comes in other than a striker than a young back up CB would do. We need to realise that we have signed over 10 players already.

Agree5 Disagree4

14 Aug 2018 12:41:23
Not worth £750k for a guy over 30.

Agree3 Disagree5

14 Aug 2018 13:05:08
McGregor was the exception and, if I remember correctly, that was pretty much done prior to SG taking over. Simply because he knows our club doesn't make it a good signing. We might not have seen the (proposed) Bosnians, but I'm sure SG, or his scout, will have. Like I said, can we fault his recruitment so far? I also didn't mention the Bosnians specifically - there may be other options.

£750k, while not necessarily a massive fee, is significant for a guy over 30, with little resale value. While a third striker is needed, will Lafferty be prepared to sit on the bench? Will he bump Morelos and Sadiq down the order and if so that, for me, is not good for the longer term. Or will he play him out of position? I don't think so.

I'm aware this is a divisive issue, but I believe at that kind of money it's the wrong choice.

Agree4 Disagree6

14 Aug 2018 14:32:48
So72, the problem is we don't have a huge squad, we've got about 20 players, not including Wallace and Hodson. That's 18 outfield players for 16 places. Now we've lost Dorrans for at least the rest of this year and God knows the situation with Rossiter, so in central midfield areas we have Jack, McCrorie, Coulibaly, Arfield, Ejaria and maybe Docherty. We need another one in that group. We also need another centre half and a striker to supplement the squad.

Agree2 Disagree3

14 Aug 2018 21:20:10
I'll take Lafferty back, may only be medium term solution at best but represents value for money and has expired in what is predominantly a young team. Proven to know where the back of the net is against celtic and a more developed player and matured individual than before.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 22:33:00
Wish we would hurry up with Lafferty, we all know it’s going to happen and it stops the debate of he’s good enough/ oh no he’s not! It’s inevitable he’ll sign and he will prove to be a worthy squad player!

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 22:47:22
Alot of people saying that Wallace will be included in the deal for Lafferty, i heard that Halliday was put forward but Hearts rejected this.

Believable2 Unbelievable9

14 Aug 2018 05:43:51
The way steven gerrard is talking about andy halliday, there's absolutely no way, he was put forward, as any part of the deal, going to hearts!

Agree7 Disagree4

14 Aug 2018 07:24:31
We won’t sign any more midfielders, Dorrans and Rossiter to return. If they don’t show fitness then maybe in January.

Agree3 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 08:05:56
Halliday will not be leaving the club. Hodson will be released before the end of the window.

Agree4 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 09:26:44
Maybe lee hodson to hearts?

Agree2 Disagree4

14 Aug 2018 10:19:05
Maybe Lee Hodson to auchinleck Talbot?

Agree5 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 10:40:24
Halliday is not even going to get on the bench when Dorrans and Rossiter return. It was Mark Allen that tried to negotiate this, not SG. Same as The Windass deal, SG wanted to keep Windass, he still left.

Agree1 Disagree3

14 Aug 2018 10:41:51
I take it you support Cumnock then?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 12:05:45
dorrans out till next year at least.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 14:42:25
Gerrard has come out and said he is happy with Halliday and spoke about him in glowing terms, I read into that that Halliday is going nowhere!

look at the players we have released do you really think if Halliday was not going to be a part of the gaffer's plans then he'd still be at the club!

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 21:50:54
Apparently Lafferty is a done deal. £750,000 agreed.

Announcement soon.

Agree5 Disagree4

13 Aug 2018 21:47:52
Not that it makes any difference to this story but I seen him at silverburn shopping centre about 3pm today. Just along way for him to go for a Nando’s.

Agree2 Disagree4

13 Aug 2018 22:03:23
I read some supposedly reliable twitter source said it had been matched this morning and wouldn’t be unvailed during week. Never heard of the guy before so who knows.

13 Aug 2018 22:09:05
To be fair james i have seen him in east kilbride loads of times, he probably just doesn't fancy shopping in Edinburgh.

13 Aug 2018 22:10:25
He goes to silverburn regularly mate. My mate has met him there a couple of times!

Agree1 Disagree4

13 Aug 2018 22:14:48
His girlfriend is from East Kilbride James not far from Silverburn. I personally think this one will be done soon.

13 Aug 2018 22:22:36
Supercoopereleven 750000 for Lafferty is better value than 2 million we paid for pena.

Agree5 Disagree3

13 Aug 2018 22:36:56
James he stays in EK so it's closer than Edinburgh.

Agree0 Disagree2

13 Aug 2018 22:43:28

SirStruth? Where is he getting the top?

Agree3 Disagree2

13 Aug 2018 23:36:34
i believe lafferty will be a bad signing. i think he would do rangers more good staying at hearts getting points from celtic aberdeen hibs. rather than sitting on our bench against celticaberdeen hibs. think outside the box people. we need more rangers supporting players at these clubs that will give celtic a fight.

Agree3 Disagree4

13 Aug 2018 23:55:12
Jordy15, you may have seen Lafferty in East Kilbride because that's where he resides.

Agree3 Disagree1

14 Aug 2018 00:20:45
Hope Lafferty done deal. Might force us to field 4-4-2,

Agree3 Disagree5

14 Aug 2018 02:23:45
3-5-2 is allegedly Stevie G’s favourite formation.

Agree0 Disagree3

14 Aug 2018 05:49:23
6 counties, of course 750k for lafferty would be better value than 2million quid for Pena! That doesn't mean to say that paying hearts 750k for lafferty is value for money, because in my eyes it ain't! I still have doubts that rangers will pay 750k to sign him! We'll just have to wait and see.

Agree2 Disagree4

14 Aug 2018 10:30:11
It appears the Wallace swap deal is def dead. I can’t see us spending £750k on Laff and would expect a deal of around £500k with small add ons (if we win league or he scores X amount of goals) . He’s tried and tested in this league, knows the club and it’s expectations, Rangers through and through which I know doesn’t mean it will be a success but def helps. It’s a no brainier for me!

Agree3 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 12:32:10
Big change I've noticed from us from recent seasons is, we don't spout our mouths off, we were famous for it, and having it bite us in the bum!
Now it seems all our opponents so it, each Europa league opponent like to do it, let's shut them up and hopefully we'll start seeing positive posts about us rather than "we're going to beat you" nonsense, do you're talking on the pitch!

Believable14 Unbelievable10

13 Aug 2018 00:58:20
Lafferty Deal is going ahead. whisper of Wallace part of the deal but not. near the 500k Mark

Should be revealed this week!

A relative saying Lafferty wants to move this window but won't press hearts to burn any bridges.

Hearts have rejected wallace plus cash for lafferty.

13 Aug 2018 09:44:17
The deal is close and numerous options have been put to hearts inc player plus cash. Wallace isn’t Hearts first choice if it’s player plus cash.

I hope we get this deal over the line, lafferty is the target man type Striker we need👍.

Hearts want 750k according to the rags.

Agree7 Disagree2

13 Aug 2018 12:12:37
Pay the extra and get it done! The difference in money is probably around the £ we'll get for Waghorn sell on. At last Waghorn could finally contribute something positive to us. He truly was one terrible player!

Can't see Wallace moving. Nobody would touch him on these wages and given that he's never fit, I'm sure it won't bother him too much to get his treatment with us, collect his wages, stick two fingers up to the board, and leave at the end of the season.

Agree7 Disagree9

13 Aug 2018 12:12:53
Ross McCormack is about to be released from Villa. I'd rather him back than Lafferty.

Agree4 Disagree19

13 Aug 2018 12:31:43
I'd rather Lafferty, who has the heart of a lion and is exactly the type of player we need, than McCormack, who is lazy and appears to have an attitude issue.

Agree14 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 12:39:42
Terrible player? Did you celebrate when the terrible player won us the league? And mccormacks attitude is ridiculous.

Agree8 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 12:42:35
No no Ross McCormack the self proclaimed celtic fan who's attitude stinks.

Throw in Hodson and Halliday as well as Wallace, free up some more wage money.

waghorn scored 44 goals in 78 games for Rangers. if that's terrible then i'd really love to see what a decent player would score then.

In the championship and petrofac cup Gersforever.

13 Aug 2018 16:21:34
Waghorn only scored seven top league goals for us.

13 Aug 2018 17:13:52
McCormack - No thanks
Lafferty - Yes please.

Agree3 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 17:40:39
It’s clear Waghorn struggled struggled to cope with step up to top flight but was rushed back from serious injury at the time which couldn’t have helped.
I disagree that he was terrible though as he was 1 of our best players in Scottish Championship, I know that’s not a great level just making the point that just because he got found out to an extent in top flight it doesn’t mean he was terrible.

Agree2 Disagree2

13 Aug 2018 18:38:15
Waghorn is not good enough to take us to the level we need to get to. End of story.

13 Aug 2018 19:32:22
every deal we've made this summer has been done pretty quickly and the same as last summerexcept from when were trying to do a deal with a scottish club i. e scott allan jamie walker and now kyle lafferty i want lafferty back at the team but if these clubs continue to not play ball we should walk away.

Agree3 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 19:53:53
A lot of waghorns goals where also penalties.

13 Aug 2018 20:29:56
Unfortunately Wallace has made it clear he is not going anywhere. Happy to stay on the sidelines with a bigger wage.

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 21:10:37
At the end of the day you can't blame him for not wanting to take a pay cut. I would do the same, and in sure most others would.

Agree1 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 21:46:05
I wouldn't touch ross McCormack with a bargepole! His attitude stinks and wouldn't be in the thoughts of what steven gerrard, wants in a player! The guy is trouble and gerrard wouldn't go for someone like him!

14 Aug 2018 00:01:33
Andy Halliday played well on sun and never let anyone down. Get behind the manager. Let’s make ibrox a fortress again.

12 Aug 2018 23:30:07
Ball is in Solankes court over loan deal, feels the same as Wilson in regards playing up here but I Klopp thinks it would be good for him. Think Thursday may be decider. Absolutely no truth in Charlie Austin deal.

Announcement in next few days regarding kit deal.

Believable4 Unbelievable6

13 Aug 2018 00:56:49
Liverpool will want assurances that Solanke is the first name on the team sheet. I doubt we can give them that🇬🇧.

Agree6 Disagree4

13 Aug 2018 07:12:51
Alfredo Morelos is in form at the moment and would be hard to drop in my opinion.

Agree10 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 09:43:15
Can't see us giving assurances Solanke will start every game.
Better option would be to sign Lafferty.

Agree7 Disagree0

13 Aug 2018 11:09:46
Solanke definately has talent without a doubt but am not so sure he is the player we need. Morelos is on top of his game rite noo and if we are going to gee liverpool assurances i dnt think droppin morelos would be a good move. The only way i see solanke comin is if morelos is going to be sold.

Agree1 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 11:45:53
I'd take Lafferty over solanke all day Solanke record not that great so not sure of the clamour to get him in Laff knows the club what's expected and I'm sure he's got a point to prove hope deal gets done this week.

Agree6 Disagree1

13 Aug 2018 22:29:13
Wow can’t beleive the diff after two games that alfredo has made to neighsayers opinions. Just wish some of them would come on and eat a bit of humble pie and hopefully learn from it.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Aug 2018 08:07:51
Lafferty and solanke are wanted. Gerrard wants to play 2 up top. Liverpool are happy for him to come here.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Aug 2018 19:36:46
Solanke is taking his time to think about loan move, we should have an answer by Friday. Could go either way at this point.

Believable4 Unbelievable12

12 Aug 2018 19:56:55
123gers, where you getting this info mate, I was under the impression that Klopp would make the decision whether or not Solanke would be going anywhere on loan. I admitt he was not even on the bench today and he wants to be playing most weeks. If you do know anything then please share.

Agree2 Disagree4

12 Aug 2018 20:02:46
He’s guessing mate like everyone else.

Agree7 Disagree4

12 Aug 2018 20:10:35
Few mates within the Scottish game and strong rumours going around that this is a case. Fingers crossed.

Agree1 Disagree6

12 Aug 2018 20:26:11
LDM17, I’m sure your the same guy who shot me down last week when I posted windass would move for 2 million, John would go to Swansea and barisic fee was agreed :) like I’ve said it rumours for now and could go either way but I’m certainly not guessing.

Agree6 Disagree3

12 Aug 2018 20:35:54
Good guess.

Agree2 Disagree3

12 Aug 2018 21:14:42
LDM17 Do you know things or have great sources? Or were you just guessing and your still getting a hard pinger? 😂😂😂.

Agree2 Disagree4

12 Aug 2018 21:18:17
123gers that was for sorry Oh Windass went for 2.75m no quite right 😂😂

122gers like I said Do you know sources? If not, you were pretty spot on 👍🏼.

Agree2 Disagree3

12 Aug 2018 21:33:39
Not that bothered if we get Solanke or not I haven’t been that impressed by him when seeing him play and he’s hardly got a good scoring record if he does come Liverpool will expect him to play so does that mean dropping Alfredo who’s looking like he could be massive for us this season got to admit was never sure about Alfredo but on this form he looks unplayable at times would rather have Lafferty.

Agree8 Disagree2

12 Aug 2018 21:36:01
if its taking this long to decide do we really want the guy.

Agree6 Disagree1

12 Aug 2018 22:01:45
123gers, Don’t worry as LDM17 shoots everyone down!

Agree7 Disagree2

12 Aug 2018 23:27:25
I'd take solanke👍.
