Anybody got details on opposition for tomorrow's closed door game. Understand Wallace getting run out.


1.) 05 Mar 2018 20:25:45
Celtic, might as well make it three wins on the bounce 😉

2.) 06 Mar 2018 11:38:23
St Mirren from what I’ve heard.

3.) 06 Mar 2018 12:48:43
I heard st Mirren also

With Ryan Jack out for another 2 matches does anyone know if Dorrans is ready to return to first team action?


1.) 11 Dec 2017 20:28:39
Dorrans isn't exactly setting heather on fire but we've none any better than him

2.) 12 Dec 2017 07:54:00
Murty was saying at his press conference on Friday that Dorrans and Rossiter were both back at their specialists this week and doesn’t know when either will be back.

3.) 12 Dec 2017 07:59:14
Is he fit for Hibs on Wednesday?

4.) 12 Dec 2017 08:01:57
Media said at the weekend that a specialist was looking at him and Rossiter so I guess he's not ready yet.

5.) 12 Dec 2017 10:53:11
Dorran's timeframe is still not yet known. Quite simply we could be talking months here.

Wallace looks like he is fit and ready to return if selected. Dorrans also does not look too far away. With competition from Bruno and Miller our squad looks good and we should be confident of going on an extended run now.

Ryan Hardie just scored an absolute screamer for Livingstone to beat Dundee United.


1.) 23 Feb 2018 22:09:18
Ryan Hardie will never be Rangers to striker. At the top level you need at least one outstanding ability/ physical attribute.
1. tall (Hately)
2. fast (Lovenkrands)
3. strong (Fredo)
4. skillful (Cooper)
5. intelligent (Mcoist)
Hardie has no exceptional quality to earn him a place as a Rangers goal scorer at the top level. Some players have the lot, Laudrup for Rangers. My all time favorite player the real Ronaldo had everything. Hardie is an average Scottish player, full stop.

2.) 23 Feb 2018 22:14:02
Performing very well, no brainier for me to get him on a new contract! Someone else’s gain if we don’t!

3.) 23 Feb 2018 23:25:46
Hardie is an excellent young prospect. Bizarre how you can just totally write him off at this stage TJBB

4.) 23 Feb 2018 23:40:44
Hately was awful when he 1st played for us. Mcoist was pants too. Fredo? Jeeso. Hardie is doing good and has every chance. Think Jamie Vardy. he is on loan for a reason. We have wrote off piles of players who turned out to be very good.

5.) 24 Feb 2018 08:12:06
I’d say extend his contact, he’s showing he knows where goal is, boy just needs game time. Cum dog not really been tested in top flight. Ryan is a product of our own.

Top flight loan next season for 6 months, if he can break into a squad and score goals he’s showing he has what it takes.

6.) 24 Feb 2018 08:18:22
Get the guy signed up. I don't care that 3 managers have put him out on loan. Loads of players when young go out on loan season after season. It's called getting game time as there current club have limited options. Let's get hearts beat today and move 6 points behind celtic.

7.) 24 Feb 2018 09:46:02
As most of you will know from my posts, I'm a huge Hardie fan. He should be given a contract and a chance to shine. Morelos may well be off in the summer and Miller is now too old. It is ridiculous to write him off like that!

8.) 24 Feb 2018 10:38:21
Herriera also most likely off in the summer.

9.) 24 Feb 2018 11:33:41
Can't see why we would not give Hardie two year deal

10.) 24 Feb 2018 12:07:27
He might not want to sign a new contract with us. He's been around the fringes of the first team for a couple of years but never been given much of a chance, so he might believe the best thing for his career is to find a new club that will give him regular playing time.
Regardless of where he ends up I hope the boy has long and successful career ahead of him.

11.) 24 Feb 2018 15:03:01
its a no brainer to give hardie a new conract and give him a season in first team and judge him from there rather than regret letting him go



19 Feb 2018 15:22:34
Great reports on young Ryan Hardie and Robby McCrorie out on loan. Hardie scored 2 goals against leaders St Mirren to take his total to 5 in 5. Young McCorie man of the match for Berwick on saturday. Expect young McCorie to be joining his brother in first team squad next season together with Hardie.


1.) 19 Feb 2018 18:32:34
About time for Hardie!

2.) 19 Feb 2018 18:48:47
hardie will have to be given a new contract first as present one runs out in summer

3.) 19 Feb 2018 23:00:28
Hardie has had his chance under 3 managers and they did not rate him. I wish the boy luck but can't see him in our plans going forward. He is at his level now.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 08:46:55
Think hardie should definitely be given contract. In the past we have let a young striker leave in Ross mcormack and he went on to do pretty well. Keep him. Watched the juventus doc on Netflix, the passion and love the players have for the club is to be admired. All clubs need that. Hopefully with some rangers fans back in team we can get Ibrox back as a fortress and stop accepting 2nd best. Because its not acceptable for our great club.

5.) 20 Feb 2018 13:15:55
Hardie looks like a player to be fair and if u haven't seen him play don't Judge Hi. He Needs Game Time And He Would Be worth Money But He needs To Be Loaned Out Again For Firsg Team Football But Has to Be At A Better Level

6.) 20 Feb 2018 15:16:28
There is development in him yet. To write him off at 20 would be absurd.

If Spurs had did the same they would never have the free scoring Harry Kane playing for them now.
He was 20 before really breaking into the team, only a few odd appearances before (similar to Hardie) .
He doesn't have a great record from his loan spells. Also, previous managers had not deemed him good enough yet.

So give the lad a chance. I think there might still be a player there. And if it didn't work out to be, then it's not been a costly exercise to find out



18 Feb 2018 22:15:49
Barry McKay dropped and no longer included in the match squad at Forrest. What's the betting will return to SPL club in the summer? Predict Hearts make a move.


1.) 19 Feb 2018 09:04:42
his attitude let him down he has all the talent in the world but you need more

2.) 19 Feb 2018 09:55:44
thinks he is better than what he is, you only need say boo then he hides

3.) 19 Feb 2018 12:51:54
The boys got it all but his confidence has been knocked with Murphy and young Middleton looking like a gem where would he fit into this team?



16 Feb 2018 16:21:06
Anybody have any update on fitness of Dorrans, Jack and McCorie and when likely to be available for selection.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 21:00:48
Ross McCrorie is being assessed monday and the club are hopeful he'll be cleared to start training again.

Dorrans is looking at a return at the end of March-start of April.

Ryan Jack is out for rest of season and could miss the start of pre season.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 22:09:28
Jack will likely be out for the season. Dozza is on schedule which I think is about 6 weeks or so. McCrorie will be assessed on Monday, hopefully a few weeks at most till he returns.

In large part due to the decision not to start with Morelas in the team.

Mistake to drop Morelos today, even when he is not scoring he uses his pace and physicaliy to create assists. Murty caved to the pressure to start with Cummings and it backfired big time.

Unfortunately offers very little other than pace.

Is Martin fit and available for selection?

Sorry for the boy Bates, he has been by far our best defender this season and interesting to hear McLeish considered for Scotland call up.

Murty is growing into the job. If he goes on a run now and lifts the cup the job is his and rightly so.

Anybody know Murty’s stated reason for dropping Morelas, gross error of judgement.

Think you are missing the point. Dodoo was developed successfully by Leicester and had a pathway to their first team squad. After joining us his development seems to have come to an end.

Earlier this season the Leicester U20 side thrashed Rangers U20s at Ibrox. Not just about money, as much to do with the development of young talent and creating pathway to the first team squad.

Good post TJBB. Really hope Murty can get the team galvanised and playing the way we know they can play. If he can go on a run, secure second place and lift the cup I think he will be the manager on a permanent basis and rightly so.
