Hearing Morelos is to escape punishment for his gesture coming off on Sunday after the club submitted video evidence that it wasn't anything sinister. Queue the imminent timmy implosion.


1.) 02 Jan 2020 17:23:45
If true its the first thing the sfa have done for us that benefits.

2.) 02 Jan 2020 17:54:00
He did nothing wrong, all he did was signal to the dhims that the game was over and the dhims did their usual when they can't take it. 👍.

3.) 02 Jan 2020 18:46:12
That ref should be demoted and never allowed to ref top flight again. He has missed 4 celtic red cards (brown, Christie, Julien and boli), allowed a handball goal and not given a rangers penalty.

4.) 03 Jan 2020 19:42:45
sirstruth. Evidence is only submitted if there is a charge to answer and there isn't. He also can't 'escape punishment' for something he hasn't been charged with, never mind found guilty of.

5.) 04 Jan 2020 13:00:40
I think we are all kidding ourselves if we can't see how a gesture like that can be misconstrued. That gesture has a meaning in the UK and in wider Europe. This is a game with a huge audience, i wouldn't want to see young kids running around doing that on a footie pitch. I remember Suarez giving a similar argument when he was accused by Evra. Sorry but the boy needs to learn that in the country he plays for, that symbolises a threat and nothing else.



05 Dec 2019 14:03:01
Hearing Barasic facing a race against time to be fit for Sunday, took a few sore one's v Hamilton and had injections to allow him to play v Feyenoord and Hearts. If he doesn't make it, who plays? Flanagan or Halliday?


1.) 05 Dec 2019 14:40:33
Halliday is naturally left footed. I'd play him and Katic for Helander as he is more physical and quicker. McGregor Tav Goldson Katic Halliday or Barasic Jack Davis Kamara Arfield Morelos and Kent.

2.) 05 Dec 2019 16:24:50
nailed it seeker - katic must come back in

naisy bullied hellander.

3.) 05 Dec 2019 20:55:12
Naismith bullied Helander? Is that a joke?

4.) 05 Dec 2019 22:45:10
I think he will play. Last December on the run up to the old firm, there was "no chance" Kent was going to be fit to play, the rest is history. Think Celtic are doing the same with Edouard.

5.) 06 Dec 2019 14:37:28
Marco you r right re Barisic. Love ones come on here saying I heard somewhere he is injured
In every paper u read. Lol.

6.) 06 Dec 2019 23:37:15
Davis is out for Sunday. Big loss up to Arfield to slot back in and back up his ibrox game last year. Heard 2 more starters are doubtful but could be willing to risk them.

7.) 07 Dec 2019 08:44:41
If Davis is out we are doomed he is our best player.

8.) 07 Dec 2019 08:53:07
Big blow if Davis is out. How many times have we had this over the years in the lead up to OF games? Seems to be our players dropping like flies while theirs are coming back.



04 Dec 2019 18:57:44
No Barasic tonight - anyone any idea if he's injured or rested?


1.) 04 Dec 2019 19:19:54

2.) 04 Dec 2019 19:40:39
Small injury.

3.) 04 Dec 2019 21:59:15
Been taking pain killing injections on foot to play. Better be fit for sun because tonight shows how much we need him.

4.) 04 Dec 2019 22:43:42
Yes barisic has a foot injury and is touch and go to be fit for sunday. We badly need barisic to be fit for sunday.

5.) 05 Dec 2019 10:23:32
Wonder if his foot injury was a result of getting stood on during the goal celebration a few weeks ago.

6.) 05 Dec 2019 12:46:41
Cant remember what game but he took a couple of kicks in the same game on top of foot. Think it might have been hamilton.

7.) 07 Dec 2019 11:55:59
its amazing how times have changed. not long ago we would be hoping he was injured now we can't do without him.



01 Oct 2019 10:35:38
Papers reporting that both us and celtic after Lawrence Shankland in Jan. Doubt Dundee Utd will deal with us.


1.) 01 Oct 2019 11:48:59
Hope they don't deal with us, would be a blessing in disguise👍.

2.) 01 Oct 2019 13:50:35
No chance coldo, he is a poor player.

3.) 01 Oct 2019 15:46:50
I understand what you guys are saying, regarding us possibly signing lawrence shankland but you just never know how good a signing, or not for that matter, he'd be. Honestly guys, i heard the same thing thrown at ally mccoist, when we were trying to sign him from st. johnstone and then sunderland. He as we all know became our record goalscorer, of all time! For the record a lot of footballing people including mccoist himself, reckon shankland can make it at the much higher level and liken him to mccoist. We'll just have to wait and see how it all pans out. We can't simply assume that because nicky clark scored for fun at that level and couldn't when he stepped up a level, doesn't mean the same thing would happen to shankland. You just never know and football experience over many years teaches you that!

4.) 01 Oct 2019 16:03:43
Hes definitely not poor but I agree probably not the standard we require to keep moving forward.

5.) 01 Oct 2019 17:26:10
Herewego that makes him poor if he can’t move us forward. Why sign a player pay wages lend him out.
Anyone remember we got into trouble in the past.
Who would honestly pay million plus for a 24 year old who has not scored in top league.

6.) 01 Oct 2019 17:31:34
Supercoop, I remember the young McCoist very well as teenager at St Johnstone and he always had outstanding potential. Potential by itself however is not good enough and McCoist had incredible commitment and desire to succeed. IMO that’s why he had a great career.

the boy Shankland is a natural goal scorer but not good enough for us going forward. Believe he will reach a good level and have successful career with his current club or at standard of say Hibs/ Hearts but not with us.

7.) 01 Oct 2019 18:51:28
seem to want anyone who scores a few goals and a rangers supporter to then sit on the bench and waste away, if he is that good he would already have been picked by a bigger team. we can't buy all the rangers supporters out there.

8.) 01 Oct 2019 19:36:13
I’d rather not tbh, if the boss and scouting set up has missed a trick then so be it, Shankland, Brophy, Cosgrove and the boy from Livi are all not good enough IMHO, not saying I am always right, but think these players being banded about are a step backwards or sideways for our club, they’re hardly setting the heather alight (Shankland aside but not proven in a top league in spite of his scoring record) .

Looking forward to another 3 points against young boys.

9.) 02 Oct 2019 15:47:06
Not the standard we require doesn't mean he's poor john. I'm sure he could play in the spl no bother, think if we want to win the league and play in Europe he's probably not going to be at that standard. That doesn't mean he's poor.



22 Sep 2019 11:25:34
Katic not in the squad again today. Maybe the rumours are true afterall?


1.) 22 Sep 2019 13:07:47
Actually quite raging about this. The guy has gave his everything and been unreal just about every game he’s played. Goldson should be dropped before him because he hasn’t been anywhere near the level Katic has been at this season. Katic is also a player that could be sold on for millions if he gets more game time and develops because of his age.

2.) 22 Sep 2019 14:58:56
Katic will play on Wednesday in Cup Quarter Final.

3.) 22 Sep 2019 16:12:25
Bankie no he won’t, Helander now in possession. its a cup we need to win.

4.) 22 Sep 2019 16:24:36
Blu89, I agree with you sir, its worrying that Katic has been dropped, he's a fantastic player who has great potential and pops up with a goal or 2. I do question Gerrards team selection at times but I suppose he knows best. I would drop/ rest Goldson as he's been coming complacent. What's your view on this chaps?

5.) 22 Sep 2019 16:29:19
Agreed, I fear Katic won't be seen again for a long time. Don't know what Gerard's problem is with him? Goldson needs a rest.

6.) 22 Sep 2019 16:56:00
its a squad game. if you play well and are fit you keep jersey unless its for tactics. Big Swede wasnt bought to sit on bench so he has jersey for now. Big Conor scored today as well.

7.) 22 Sep 2019 17:30:48
Struth, the big Swede as u call him, has been immense since coming into the team, Katic is young and raw, we have a league to win.

8.) 22 Sep 2019 17:42:16
Agree happened last year Katic dropped for months for Worral cost us seems to not fancy him gerrard I think Katic best defender.

9.) 22 Sep 2019 17:59:57
Think about it this way Struth. If you are an employee at a job and you’re bursting you’re backside every day and working well would you not be mad if other employees who have just been going through the motions are promoted and you’re not?

10.) 22 Sep 2019 18:20:40
Gerard has also said many times, if you have the jersey it is yours to keep if you perform. Unless of course you are Goldson. Katic is hung out to dry again.

11.) 22 Sep 2019 20:29:59
The stuck, lots off nonsense being spoken re Katic replacing Goldson. One is a right sided cb the other a left sided lb. so if people want Goldson out it would be edmundson who came in.

12.) 22 Sep 2019 22:13:45
Bursting your backside off to maintain the standard all around you dosent wash with me, if that is what it takes and you fall below that, only one outcome, your dropped. Goldson and Helander are our best centre back pairing.

13.) 22 Sep 2019 22:21:45
John25 think you’ll find Katic is right footed.

14.) 22 Sep 2019 22:30:54
It may just be that katic has played a fair amount of football. He played during the summer break with Croatia at euro championships. Could just be resting him in preparation for a long busy season ahead. Think arfield will be the same after Canada duty. I would also think Davis will be due for a rest coming soon with possibly king coming in to the team.

15.) 22 Sep 2019 23:15:07
If there is a disciplinary prob then the manager is obligated to sort it out . I think Katic is brill . There was footage however at the start of the season where he took umbrage to something jones said in training and Katic went for him so I think he is quite a fiery character and maybe he has to be brought into heel . simple as that . Lastcyesr everyone forgets but he was injured then came back too early . But all the press, people on here and pundits say he was dropped. That is not the case last year .

16.) 22 Sep 2019 23:30:15
Robbie your argument makes no sense because Katic has been better than Goldson so why does Goldson get the jersey automatically?

17.) 23 Sep 2019 10:24:13
Gerrard said after the Feyenoord game that Goldson is technically better than Katic. I rate Goldson very highly too, I think he's our best defender.

18.) 23 Sep 2019 10:49:06
Helander goldson katic

Katic should be number 1 cb an let hel n gold fight for num 2
Katic been 100% better than hel n gold put together.

19.) 23 Sep 2019 13:12:58
Katic has looked great at times and not so much at others. SG picks based on what he sees, and he sees far more than we do.

Nobody can deny that Goldson and Katic partnership was not working perfectly. Teams were creating chances against us that they wouldn't against a better centre half pairing. For me, neither looked great.

SG reckoned Goldson and Helander was the best option in the past two games, and we've kept two clean sheets and won both games. So let's carry on trusting him with the decisions, and calm down on both the criticism of him, and the praise of Katic.

If some of the posters on here were to be believed, Katic and Barasic would be contenders for the Baloon D'or. And Halliday would be responsible for every bad result we've had since he signed.

20.) 24 Sep 2019 17:10:36
If there was a bust up at training then nobody knows what has been said. Which may have led to katic been cast aside. Would like to edmunson more to be honest. be great if he could get great partnership with helander going.

21.) 24 Sep 2019 17:37:08
Believe Helander and Katic will play central defence tomorrow night. Don’t believe that weakens the defence. If.

A lot of comments on here about how we need another striker who can bully defences like Morelos does when Morleos isn't available as I think we're all in agreement that Defoe did nothing today and can't play as a lone striker. Well, I'm sitting here watching Jason Cummings pull Liverpool CB's all over the place, and scored twice for Shrewsbury. And yes, there's no VVD playing for Liverpool but he's giving Lovren and Matip the run around. Thoughts? I really think he wasn't given a fair crack at it when he was with us on loan.


1.) 26 Jan 2020 19:10:08
Forest Fan here. yes he did play well, (as a sub) . Can't believe some of you guys are now tearing your team to shreds.

2.) 26 Jan 2020 19:10:27
Wasnt good enough last time. Failed at peterborogh luton forest. No thanks.

3.) 26 Jan 2020 19:14:23
No for me sorry. He can't even get a start for Shrewsbury. We need more of a target man imo. Reason is sometimes we need to mix it up and go long. Defoe has never played as a lone striker. You can't expect him to win balls in the air when CB are 6ft plus.

4.) 26 Jan 2020 20:04:05
Yup it's something to see rogue red!

Rogie red, i amazing, lose a game is like corporal punishment, lol.



26 Jan 2020 16:42:14
Now, I know there are optimists among us here, however I like to think I'm a realist and for me, that's the league gone - we've been shocking. I standby for the abuse.


1.) 26 Jan 2020 19:25:58
No abuse from me SirStruth as I agree with you. Last 3 games we have been well below par and looks to have cost us.



26 Jan 2020 16:15:35
What is Kamara all about - shocking.




31 Dec 2019 09:16:19
I see that arse Sutton has been bumping his gums saying Morelos should get at least a 5 game ban - aye good one.

Also, interesting read in the Record where they've looked at Clancy's performance and called out 5 wrong decisions:

1: Christie should have been sent off
2. Julien should have been sent off
3. Bolingoli should have been sent off
4. Penalty to Rangers for shirt pull on Aribo
5. Their goal should have been disallowed

Clancy can't be allowed to referee another OF again.


1.) 31 Dec 2019 10:22:06
Aye but he will thanks to Lawell and the complience officer.

2.) 31 Dec 2019 11:08:34
Chris Sutton?
5 game ban?

Why is that ringing a bell with me?

3.) 31 Dec 2019 12:35:08
The SFA and their other pals all know what went on. Not much on the magnificent achievement in us getting a fantastic result away from home.
No, let’s just find something else to focus on
Don’t give them any lip service
Enjoy it for what it was a fantastic away result against the champions.

Happy new year to all bears on here and a happy new year to all non bears too
Wonderful game and the correct result.



30 Dec 2019 10:48:22
Still absolutely buzzing from yesterday. Yesterday I posted that I'd take a draw - I was wrong but I'm always apprehensive going to their midden. This time, I don't see us slipping up after the winter break. Good run of home games coming now and they have the tricky away period. That bring me onto a question. Do you think SG will stick with Goldson and Katic as our CB's after the break? Thought both were immense yesterday, particularly Goldson who, imo plays better when Katic is next to him. Or will Helander go back into the team when fit?


1.) 30 Dec 2019 11:42:29
The season is a long one. Goldson, katic, helander, even Edmundson will all play their part.

Well said As1974 - JJ has been out for 3 months with an injury, not match sharp etc and will take time to rediscover that pre season/ early season form. Remember his performances against Midtjylland and Warsaw in Europa qualifiers. Give the boy a break, people want rid of him and he's not had a decent crack at it yet.

What is it with these clubs who think they can make ridiculous bids like this for our players. £8.6 million it's too expensive for Croatia LB - aye very good. Arsenal paid £20+ million for injury prone Tierney. BB worth that too in my opinion.

How can a Rangers fan be "not overly disappointed" losing to that mob? They're worst game of the season and they still beat us. Let's look at this season - Celtic have beaten us in both games, with the next game at their place and they WONT be as bad again. Aberdeen away on Wed and we blew a 2 goal lead. We paid £7 million for Kent for these games, not v Hamilton or a poor Hearts team. I'm sorry, but unfortunately, Celtic have the psychological advantage over us. Yes, we played well, but history books won't show "rangers played better and should have won", they will show that they won again, their 10th trophy in a row.

Coldo is right tho - no chance with Ojo and Aribo replacing Davis and Kent. Hopefully the rumours of Kent missing are a lot of rubbish.

Did we not sign Flo after Hartson failed his medical? Anyway, for one of them, I always used to think that Hartson seemed a big likeable guy - how wrong I was. Turning into the same bitter and twisted individual as Sutton.
