SG was disappointed we let the boy Bates get away to Hamburg. He rated his potential as a no nonsense CB and would have been happy for him to have remained as squad member and backup. Apparently McLeish gave Bates a good review.


1.) 29 Jul 2018 17:31:39
I believe Bates would of came good under Gerrard, he showed good potential at times. I think Rangers should have done more to keep him. Apparently he's doing really well.

2.) 29 Jul 2018 17:54:42
He is doing really well.

3.) 29 Jul 2018 19:02:07
Sorry to see Batesy go but it was his decision at the time and going by the posts he got on here. he was a bit of a bomb scare at times . brilliant too but awful at times too
Good luck cutesy . a good lad without a doubt.

4.) 29 Jul 2018 19:04:34
Bates chose to go, u play for the club not the manager Tough.

5.) 29 Jul 2018 19:25:15
Bates simply didn't want to be a Rangers player any more, so however well or otherwise he is doing, whatever nonsense we believe that SG was 'disappointed' he left, the truth is it has nothing to do with Rangers. He's gone, he's nothing to us.

6.) 29 Jul 2018 19:47:58
Agree with the last two posts - he chose to ditch us and we got no cash for him after he rejected a new deal into the bargain. He's not one of us and can stay well away.

7.) 29 Jul 2018 20:04:20
Hey Molsgoals. you like a bit of big ginger action do you? Each to their own pal. I won't judge you, "cutesy".

8.) 29 Jul 2018 21:40:00
Haha blue belter mate.

9.) 29 Jul 2018 22:18:59
I can't understand why people are bitter about a player leaving. We signed him for practically nothing and tried to develop him. We waited until the last minute to offer him a new deal and at the end of the day he exercised his right to see what else was out there and ultimately moved on. He owed us nothing so can't understand the distain.

If our club's hierarchy wanted him to stay they would have offered him a better deal and one earlier than they did.

I hope the lad goes on to have a good career and you never know he might come back a better player.

Would rather him than the rats that's for sure!

10.) 29 Jul 2018 22:26:12
Ha brilliant blue. predictive text am afraid
Really need to double check these posts before hitting reply. getting myself in an awful lot of bother but if you want I can still call you cutesy
If it tickles your fancy 😘😂.

11.) 30 Jul 2018 07:58:23
Nice one Mols. You can call me what you like, but keep your fingers off my fancy!

Anybody know severity of Windass injury and if he will be out this weekend and possibly semi final?


1.) 02 Apr 2018 21:59:11
Hope not

2.) 02 Apr 2018 22:15:30
Hopefully lol. all jokes aside I like him when he's in the game but its not often enough for me.

Think Dorrans should get a run behind the striker or even better strikers and bring Windass on when the opposition legs start to go

Really think we need to be comfortable playing in a few formations, we're far too predictable.

Think for teams sitting behind the ball, we could play a flat back 4 3 cm dorrans and murphy central behind morelos or cummings

Pack the mf with runners into the box

3.) 02 Apr 2018 23:06:23
Totally agree Camoo. Most Windass fans agree that he only turns up for 15mins a game so why not make him impact sub. It would allow either Dozza to play his natural no.10 role or Cumdog a chance to form a partnership with el Buffalo.

4.) 03 Apr 2018 00:26:40
We will not play two up top against Celtic leaves us to open in midfield and they would over run us, for me Cummings is over rated don’t see the clamber to get him in the team

5.) 03 Apr 2018 15:32:38
thinkaboutit, don’t you think Morales is maybe overrated?

6.) 03 Apr 2018 17:11:26
If murty is keeping the same formation he has been playing we would be better suited with Murphy behind Morelos and have Cummings out wide coming in to support the same as he did v Falkirk! Murphy isn’t going to hide the way windass does and would offer us more imo

7.) 03 Apr 2018 18:50:19
Slight difference with Celtic n Falkirk

8.) 03 Apr 2018 19:22:23
When Celtic had a centre half at right back the last time it’s what he should have done! Cummings will get into the box from wide Murphy and Candeias don’t, Celtic don’t have a right back that will push our wide men back like tierney does on the left so it doesn’t matter if it’s celtic or Falkirk it’s about knowing the game and having a go!

9.) 03 Apr 2018 20:32:51
Yately 1
I think he is the best front man we have he is going through a lean spell as all strikers do, his work rate hasn’t dropped he brings the team up the park, he gave the Celtic defence a hard time and his miss in that game is the only thing people think about but I watched Ally miss some sitters but he came back and got goals, I feel he needs a goal just to get him going again he’s young and I TrueType think all the transfer talk has affected him but he’d be in my team

10.) 04 Apr 2018 07:04:09
If fit I’d play mcrorie cntr mid with doc as we need some more physicality in there and someone to make tackles - we are too easily bullied in middle of the park and at times on sat first 20mins we were over run

I’d also move dorrans further fwd to replace josh in the no 10 role to get up and support the striker but he can also drop back into midfield to help out when we don’t have ball

Anyone else think it’s strange fredo was scoring a lot of his goals when miller was up beside him.

just saying

11.) 04 Apr 2018 13:52:44
Nope trev no7,i would want ross mccrorie played in his more natural centre half position! Its good in times of injuries, that young mccrorie can be deployed as a defensive midfielder but he's first and foremost a centre half, in my eyes anyway!



05 Mar 2018 19:55:58
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



11 Dec 2017 18:05:45
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.

I heard the George Peat interview on bbc where he spilled the beans about receiving phone call from the chairman of fellow Scottish league club requesting we receive no special consideration over fixture pile up when reaching Euro final. My question is has anyone heard any comment or editorial from bbc scotland subsequent to the interview?




15 Sep 2018 14:20:52
What's happens to the boy Ejaria, not the squad for today. Had not heard he was injured.


1.) 15 Sep 2018 17:20:25
Not match fit, as yet.

2.) 15 Sep 2018 18:23:00
Not match fit he has played about 10 times for us this season.

3.) 15 Sep 2018 20:14:21
He"s carrying an injury.

4.) 15 Sep 2018 21:09:57
He's also not terribly good.



09 Sep 2018 19:42:50

Although gutted a losing the first Celtic league game at Celtic Park I am very satisfied with the start to the season and particularly qualifying for the group stages of the Europa League. Please can you set up a poll asking the question- What would you rather have achieved after 13 competitive matches into the new season and reign of SG:

1. Europa League qualification.
2. Avoiding defeat in 1st league match at Celtic Park



{Ed033's Note -

After 13 games poll

1.) 09 Sep 2018 22:25:26
Difficult to understand the mentality of 'fans' who would have sacrificed Europa League qualification for a draw with the dhims.

2.) 09 Sep 2018 22:44:22
We are rangers and want to beat them all the time as well as qualify for europa. I don’t want to justify getting beat from them again. Why are we freezing every time we play them.



29 Aug 2018 21:11:59
Is the match tomorrow being played on a plastic pitch?


1.) 29 Aug 2018 21:34:29
Yes it is Bankie.

2.) 29 Aug 2018 23:28:46
maybe the killie game was a blessing in disguise.



28 Aug 2018 22:23:41
Love hearing the positive and ambitious comments of young Docherty currently out on loan and getting competitive game time in England. He is class act and will return stronger to have e great career at Ibrox.


1.) 29 Aug 2018 08:35:25
Should of been kept, the bench on Sunday lacked any sort of depth.

2.) 29 Aug 2018 10:46:12
Yeah because he will progress far faster by sitting on the bench rather than playing every week!

FFS - give SG a wee bit of credit instead of mouthing off whatever comes into your heid!

3.) 29 Aug 2018 11:33:12
Don't agree bench lacked depth, Wallace, Arfield, Middleton, Sadiq, candaes, Kent and foderingham
Mccrorie suspended. Coulibally rossiter, Dorrans, injured plus three four still to come in
Docherty better on loan.

Supercoop, I said he will feature and will be in the match squad on Saturday. Whether he gets game time depends on if Goldstone and Katic need recovery time and if McAuley is fit. I predict between tomorrow night and Saturday we will see some game time from Worrall. Let’s see.

19 Sep 2018 21:40:28
Bindi, agree likely that Worrall will feature on Saturday against st Johnstone but that would not be part of a back 3. If performing back 3 drills on training think likely SG believes will be shape for at least part of tomorrow’s tie.

The boy on loan from Notts Forrest, Worrell could play on a back 3 tomorrow night with Tav and Barisic as wing backstreet.

No need to worry, no guarantee given to liverpool on starting games against Celtic. Barring injuries liverpool would have been given guarantee would make minimum number of games over the season, most likely 20. Having said that the carrot would have been dangled that could include Celtic. No commitment given though.

Dorrans approaching full fitness, that’s why included in registered European squad.

Either Halliday, Dorrans or possibly McCrorie need I play tomorrow with Jack not fit. Think Halliday will get the nod for the starting 11.

Think need to accept young Morelas for what he is including his a trength, running and physicality. I personally think he is a great talent although he needs to grow up a bit. Great comment from SG that if he wants to retain his place in his national team he will need to score regularly and play well for us. Also think he will be hurting at missing the Virrareal game on Thursday as It was a big opportunity to create awareness in Spain of his potential. Hopefully this will work as a positive motivator for him and we will benefit moving forward.

Agree Dunoonbear, Ibrox should bar fortress and team should fear visiting the stadium. That’s the way it used to be and SG is well aware of the Anfield fortress of his youth.

Think the boy is just 18 and looks a terrific prospect. Interesting to hear SG’s comments on Middleton after match yesterday, clearly thinks highly of the lad. Also seems to have good values and be a really good lad, an area where “Bud” could have been better.
