How long before our club spouts out some pish about silences to deflect the attention away from 60 minutes of dross, clueless football?


1.) 31 Dec 2016 15:54:30
The Daily Ranger are doing it for you just now.

2.) 31 Dec 2016 16:03:06
The start of the minute silence was a disgrace. But nothing can deflect from the performance.

3.) 31 Dec 2016 16:05:22
I must have been at a different game today, I thought we played well and could have got a draw. They probably deserved the win. But it was a big improvement on the last two games.

4.) 31 Dec 2016 16:21:42
Hooly78, you maybe want to retract that statement, it was one of your own doing the shouting.

5.) 31 Dec 2016 16:29:42
2nd half dislpay we were lucky to get beat 1-2 mate.

6.) 31 Dec 2016 16:52:16
I don't usually waste my time responding to celtic fans on a rangers fan site. But I will this time any fan that shouted anything during silence is **** including the celtic fans who were shouting.

7.) 31 Dec 2016 17:39:09
Hooly, its a Football fan site pal, this is just the wee rickity rangers corner on it. We know who you were aiming that post at. But you are correct, its shameful of fans of any club to break a minutes silence, but you have to ask why on earth it wasnt an applauded tribute, its the common sense thing to do.

8.) 31 Dec 2016 19:47:31
Bhampot, it was 2 separate shouts from your fans mate that started it all! Are you conveniently forgetting that twice one of your fans shouted the name during today's minutes silence! I agree our few supporters shouldn't have reacted until after the minutes silence! So get your facts right pal!

If Warburton doesn't go the gap will only get wider and wider. A good manager looks at what he has and thinks about how he can get the best out of them. Warburton is persisting with his philosophy regardless of whether he has the player to suit or not.


1.) 31 Dec 2016 14:25:25
Hes a scared to drop certain players tavernier for 1 he's is never a defender in a million years. Haliday is not a cm. What does weir do in training the goal from the corner is a total joke.

2.) 31 Dec 2016 14:34:49
Tav is a joke at 2nd goal, and Harry not passing to dodoo is a disgrace, but I enjoyed the game.

3.) 31 Dec 2016 14:36:57
Why hodson never played is really surprising, can't understand that today, but wee Barry was superb.

4.) 31 Dec 2016 14:37:23
How does a danger man like Demeble get time to take a touch, let the ball bounce and hit a half voley totally unmarked from 8 yards?!?!

5.) 31 Dec 2016 15:21:05
The manager has shown flexibility since the Hearts game at Tynecastle. He has a philosophy but has prepared to modify it as circumstances require it. Think the last 6 months have been a big learning curve for the manager and that goes well for the future. The performance and result today was almost accepatahle and if selfish flash Forrester done the right thing and passed to Dodoo we could have got a point. The performance and result against SJ on Wednesday was not acceptable and the result of poor application by the players.

6.) 31 Dec 2016 15:21:32
@lwdawson - because the Rangers p! ayer ( Wilson ) who was supposed to be marking him was drawn towards the ball.

7.) 31 Dec 2016 15:39:48
The whole team ball watches and chases the ball as a group. Amateur stuff!

There are things the team does which clearly come from the management. The pass back to the keeper then pass out regardless of how much pressure we are under.

8.) 31 Dec 2016 15:40:58
The last 6 months, FD? Have you forgotten the last 6 months of last season?



20 Dec 2016 17:36:18
Seeing a few unwashed on here having a go at Garner. Saying he's only scored 3 this season so far.

Saying he can't score yet he's already had the ball in their net.

A THIRD of his goal tally was scored against Celtic! Haha.


1.) 20 Dec 2016 19:00:25
The great dembele has only scored 4 more considering he is supposedly a 40 million pound striker.

2.) 20 Dec 2016 19:20:51
Dawson, wow, your maths is great, now could you and cee now produce the total stats for both players up til now. I look forward to seeing them. Thanx.

3.) 20 Dec 2016 19:39:20
Bhampot? More like crackpot!

4.) 20 Dec 2016 22:06:15
Is that it. Away to bed son. Garner cost £1.8 million and his stock worth is falling. Dembele cost £450,000, and his stock right now is more than 40 times what we paid, at least. Go you and your wee pal cee do the math on that.

5.) 21 Dec 2016 00:30:16
So u reckon 20 million bhampot? Not even close around 10 is more like it.

6.) 21 Dec 2016 07:08:10
No bigblue, £10 million is what you and the rest of your fellow fans HOPE he is worth. This boy is seriously in demand, and you lot all know it. Tryin to talk down his worth is just petty blue tinted envy from a good few on here.

7.) 21 Dec 2016 07:54:30
There were people on your page saying 40 million squid ya bampot* try spelling it right* 4 more goals the great dembele has scored and he's played more games. The boy isn't even the best striker at Celtic park, if you think someone will pay 20 30 40 million pound for a guy who can't even scored every day for Celtic in spl and dives every match he plays you seriously need help.

8.) 21 Dec 2016 08:03:12
His stock will b falling too if he keeps drawing blanks against bottom of the league outfits bhampot! Especially as he's a one trick pony! Kris boyd banged goals for fun but wouldny get two bob for him :-) )

9.) 21 Dec 2016 08:10:50
The lad is a terrific talent no one can deny that but to say he is worth 20 to 40 million is a bit optimistic he is playing in the spfl where the standard isn't the greatest if he was doing as well playing bottom to mid table English premiership or top 3 English championship I could see where these figures come from but Imo if he does get sold it would be 10 to 13 million at most just for the fact he plays in scotland as it would be seen as a big risk shelling out the top figures that have been touted for someone his age who has played well for 1 season in the spfl premiership.

10.) 21 Dec 2016 11:54:39
TBH the goal at Parkhead was all Miller. Great head to back post which completly caught out De Vries (who is pretty woefull) Reckon the ball was in the net wether Garner was there or not so not really a claim to fame IMO.

11.) 21 Dec 2016 15:56:51
Guys Dembele`s worth will not be what he does in the SPL, he could score 30 every seaon for next 5 years and the EPL teams might still not look at him.
It will be what he does in CL that counts, against top quality opposition, and for France 1st team or U21s.
Look at Forster, VVD and Wanyama we would never had got 10-12m for these players for just doing it in SPL.
IMHO right now Celtic wudnt sell for less than 12m, but remember he is only 20 yrs old so he can only improve and if he does and still bangs in goals in CL then who knows what he will be worth when you consider Troy Deeney at Watford was being touted at 30m.
We know players are not worth that but if they daft enough to pay it we will snap their hands off when the time comes.

12.) 21 Dec 2016 16:17:19
Was watching sky sports Andy walker was talking about Celtic defence at cross balls after seeing clips they showed I think joe garner could do lot of damage against them. If wee mackay can hit his top game we might be bringing the bells in early.



11 Dec 2016 12:21:46
A few posts on here claiming we've "turned a corner" after two good games.

I am delighted we are starting to play better but 2 good games does not mean a corner turned. The last two games are how we should have been performing all season.

Right now it's a case of and hope we continue to improve.


1.) 11 Dec 2016 14:18:49
How many games would you say gives fans a chance to say, a corner has been turned?

It wasn't just two games though was is. It was two absolutely dominant performances against teams in and around us in the table.

We keep hearing how the 5-1 defeat and the 1-0 defeat in the SF could have been a lot more had we not been fortunate.

Aberdeen were lucky to get a goal against us in the last minute, and were fortunate it was only 2-1. Hearts were extremely fortunate it was only 2-0, it could have been much more.

Fans didn't give us a chance going into those games and had MWs departure as a certainty in their heads.

The same fans who are calling for calm after two wins were the same doing the complete opposite when they wanted Warburton out the door, and at that point were anything but calm.

We're allowed to have belief and excitement about our team going forward.
That isn't just reserved for the lot from the East.

2.) 11 Dec 2016 14:37:15
The people calling for MW's departure are not fans. they want a return to the glory days of WS and DM's £millions that got us where we have been in recent years.

Would the same fans be calling for Peps departure at Man C? Change does not happen overnight if it is going to have lasting positive effect.

Let the wingers have their say. it just shows how out of touch they are.

Build from the bottom with the next 10 years in mind, not just the next 10 weeks.

3.) 11 Dec 2016 14:58:10
Agree with your post.

Think most fans TBH realise we can't spend anywhere near as much as Celtic and certainly not while the club doesn't have European football.

Think most fans were surprised we had the money to buy Garner TBH, considering most still think we have nothing to spend, which is just as ridiculous as those who think we have millions to spend every window and think that DK should be giving MW significantly more money.

We have to spend to match them but wisely. The gamble with Barton and Kranjcar didn't pay off in hindsight but at the time it was a very shrewd move.

4.) 11 Dec 2016 15:03:05
with mckay saying about the league not being over i'd expect you to get beat or draw next game, seems to happen to you a lot this season when your players speak up. just an observation.

5.) 11 Dec 2016 16:11:26
Bhoywonder, coming from you, you will probably be right. There is probably not a Rangers fan around who knows more about the club than your good self.

6.) 11 Dec 2016 16:28:41
cheers cullin mate, its posts like yours above that keeps me coming back on here . appreciated pal ;)

7.) 11 Dec 2016 17:55:18
Thorn, we were also lucky we weren't beat 5 or 6 nil at hearts. I'm happy to be proved wrong and were doing well last 2 performances have been pretty good but yeah I'd say 5 or 6 good performances before we can say we've turned the corner! Certainly looking a bit brighter mate tho!

8.) 11 Dec 2016 21:53:20
We aren't playing the same, we have turned a corner we beat the two teams around us in a week and our two best prospects come back next week. Corner turned.

9.) 11 Dec 2016 22:15:11
Two home games that were great to watch and in which we humped our main rivals for second place. Let's see what we're like at Accies on friday night, an artificial surface, very little atmosphere, where the players will have to work possibly even harder to get a result. That to me will be another test of character and a victory will surely indicate the improvement is sustained.

10.) 12 Dec 2016 00:24:27
Pfft, Playing at home to a team with a new manager, a team that gets a perfectly good goal chopped off and a player booked for diving when he clearly did not and two goals born of sloppy defending rather than superior attacking football. Don't get the party hats and ticker tape out quite just yet.

11.) 12 Dec 2016 09:23:23
Why not? After all what we always hear (especially from the other mob) is winning is all that matters, no extra points for artistic impression.

12.) 12 Dec 2016 09:24:28
BR65 what makes you think you have the right to say anyone is not a fan because they have an opinion on the manager?!

I can understand why some might get ahead of themselves. We are all desperate to see the glory days back at Ibrox but we have had too many false dawns over the past few years.

We need to be performing more like the past couple of games consistently for a sustained period before we can claim to have turned a corner.

13.) 12 Dec 2016 15:11:10
The results at home against Aberdeen and Hearts are encouraging but we still have a long way to go to secure second spot never mind regain our title. We need to start winning away from hime and I am sure that Mr Warburton knows that we are still a number of players short on the quality we need, especially in midfield. That said, the encouraging factor in the above games has been our aggression and evident desire to win!

14.) 13 dec 2016 13:17:22
everyone with a brain knows we have aways to go yet guys but we deservedly beat the two surrounding us and even better we played with passion aggression so all this sum1 had a goal disallowed malarkey is just grasping at straws to put us down in both of those games we where by far the better side and could have won by more than we did so guys like "shdark" or whoever else wants to bring up points like that let them have their little pittifull attempt to keep us from gaining any confidence as imo it will not work as it has very little effect on people with a brian.



30 Nov 2016 22:02:45
Let's have a show of hands. Hit agree if you think Warburton should go and disagree if you think he should stay.


1.) 30 Nov 2016 22:17:46
Who would disagree. Warburton has to go he is a complete muppets. As are the majority of his players.

Don't understand this one. The boy hasn't had a chance to prove his worth to the team, not to mention we need a defensive mid. We're playing Halliday out of position there and I can't think of any cover for him.

Hope he does well though.

A wee Google search led me to this 2016 article:

"Phoenix Suns Franchise, Owner Robert Sarver Voted Worst in NBA.

ESPN’s Annual Ultimate Standings rank all 122 major North American sports franchises on a variety of standards. The Phoenix Suns finished last in the NBA, and 120th overall.

The rankings rip on the Phoenix Suns for everything – their best ranking is 98th overall in affordability. 98th out of 122 is only good compared to 120th.

Is this fair? I am obviously biased towards the Phoenix Suns, but these rankings seem overly harsh. Here are the categories, and the Suns rank (out of 122). "

Swany9, why bring up budgets only to say budgets don't matter when you're point is proven flawed by politely reminding you that we have the largest budget except Celtic?

Doing better than you thought?! You're aspirations are in the gutter man!

If the sheep win their game in hand we are 3rd. Do you think that's good enough given how much bigger our budget is than everyone else except Celtic?

Not to mention we'll likely be 30 odd points behind Celtic!

The management have so many questions to answer. Such as stubbornly persisting with a style that clearly doesn't suit the squad.

Also the recruitment so far has been a monumental waste of precious funds.

No one realisticly thought we'd win the league but we wanted to see the club progressing. So far this season we have gone backwards!

Not disagreeing with you j1985, but just because the management see a player in a certain position doesn't make it so. Our management see Halliday as a defensive mid!
