Most Overrated Managers?

{Ed's Note - we have posted a new article entitled, Most Overrated Managers?

Hamilton are without 1st choice keeper and three of their midfielders, if we don't get a result on Friday there are no excuses.

Agree4 Disagree2

25 Sep 2017 21:46:26
Partick were without there 1st choice keeper and abt 4 outfield players and there top goalscorer left on the bench and it took us til extra time to beat them

Agree5 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 20:35:49
I am gobsmacked that the negative brigade are so vociferous in their criticism after us losing to a financially superior manky mob. We are a long way from ready to challenge, but I believe much closer than before and heading in the right direction. Top league scorer, super debut from McRorie, held our own in first half, this is progress. What we need to do now is support, support, support. Only 7 games in and all to play for. C'mon the Gers!

Agree8 Disagree6

25 Sep 2017 21:46:44
Held our own in the first half? Is that the limit of your expectations? St Johnstone got a well deserved point at Celtic park so they must be ready for the champions league then. As for progress how does 5th place in the league, only 1 win in 4 at home in the league and losing to Progres represent progress?

Agree4 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 22:30:08
Just can’t see us doing anything under Pedro I hope I’m wrong but I doubt it. they pushed the boat out with getting a top drawer manger. we must do the same

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 23:12:24
We are 5th, out of europe by a pub team and we have spent 8mil to achieve this, in what way is this progress?

Agree3 Disagree2

26 Sep 2017 00:08:50
Still surprises me the amount of people claiming we are making progress under PC, where exactly is the progress?!
Another disappointing season lies ahead let's not kid ourselves here.

Agree3 Disagree1

26 Sep 2017 07:08:38
Incase your new mate and have not been reading the posts its not negativity after celtic, its normality from the start of the season. This guy has made us worse than what warburton had us. I honestly think mccoist would do abetter job and no i'm not saying I want that far from it but if out board can't see what a total cock up they have made then we are doomed. All the time in the world won't help this guy now he has blown is good n proper and causing a scene with brown at half time proves it. He is angry at himself and his players but vents it at everyone else around him when he should be in his players faces demanding better and not protecting them from every wrong decision. These are men and rangers men at that. No one likes us we don't care. Well they better get familiar with that cause its not a new saying its always been that way.

Agree1 Disagree3

25 Sep 2017 19:32:16
I personally think we should start with herrera and morelos up top we have candelias that can provide from the right with they two up top playing as partners i think i could be a good move
need sort left wing postion tho give nemane or another youngster a chance in there windass not done enough since came back into the team

Agree5 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 21:48:46

Windass is rank rotten who seems to think that the game only lasts for 25 mins. Agree about the young guy from Man City thought he did well when he came on and looked to take people on. Better giving him a start instead of the hopeless Windass

Agree1 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 23:06:00
Nemane or Holt Windass has had his chance only good for about 20 minutes on the left.

Agree0 Disagree2

26 Sep 2017 10:46:48
I personally think we should start with a new manager.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Sep 2017 11:11:04
Get mcinnes, bring mclean and shinnie with him.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2017 17:45:02
I'm not a Pedro fan, but his main job on Saturday was to avoid another drubbing. That he did.

I can't see him with us long term, but to change yet again, its going to cost a fortune what with him and some of his useless buys, so we have to take it on the chin for now and just keep supporting the club for what its worth, perhaps there's a corner we are about to turn, who knows.

Agree5 Disagree6

25 Sep 2017 18:56:13
For me the performance wasn't good enough on Saturday however I wouldn't say it was time to sack Pedro. His future will be decided in the next 6-10 weeks after Cup Semi and matches against St Johnstone, Aberdeen twice etc.

What I would say is that we need a change at the back, McCrorie looked assured on Saturday and I would give him and Alnwick a run but whoever is in there needs protection from their fullbacks.

Pedro must address the shortfalls of this team he has built or the board will have to act as he has been backed!

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 20:40:41
Gone are the days of a good old fashioned hard as nails rangers manager or player. Walter smith and alex Ferguson were the last of a dying breed of manager. Only one I could think that would come close is tommy wright he looks a tough manager hair dryer treatment from him would sink in.

Agree0 Disagree5

25 Sep 2017 17:22:54
sometime soon I would like to see this line up as our starting 11 assuming all are fit of course





subs - Foderingham, Wilson. A, Beerman, Rossiter, Hemane, Candeias, Miller

tongue in cheek, couldn't do any worse.

Agree3 Disagree12

25 Sep 2017 18:59:59
Who's playing rb? Who's playing lm? By the looks of it you have mccrorie a cb at rb and barjonas a cm at lm. 😩

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 19:33:29
Wilson playing and on the bench.

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 21:53:16

Aidan Wilson by chance?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2017 23:58:58
we have TWO Wilsons on our books and McCrorie has been described as a player who can fill ANY defensive roll, in my list HE IS AT RIGHT BACK, all you critics go and play computer football, its all about opinions here, my opinion is that none of you have a clue how to run a business, spend spend spend = disaster, like it or not we have already been down there

Agree1 Disagree2

26 Sep 2017 00:10:20
Glad your not the manager anyway

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Sep 2017 10:09:14
Ritchie, you made an arse of the team and now you are blaming and venting at everyone else. Are you pedro in disguise?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2017 14:05:17
we should be playing a 352 or a 3421. makes far more sense.

for me sam allerdyce would be a good choice until end of the season. frank de bour is not right for the job. looking further ahead i don't know. certainly no one from spl. must be someone from england and the board must spend a decent some. this team needs 2 new full or wing backs a good CAM and another striker.

Agree3 Disagree11

25 Sep 2017 19:59:10
Jamie, it would be amazing if big Sam was put in charge. I still think pedro needs a bit more time. Think it will take a good few big wins against the top 6 teams to get the confidence in the squad. But if that doesn't happen and he is showing the door then big Sam would be the answere. He would need a good few quid to spend though. He would want a high wage for himself also. If we were willing to take the chance on him it would be a 99% guaranteed stopping the dreaded 10 in a effing row for them. I think that's our biggest aim now. I grew up in the 90's! Never thought for a minute this is where we would be

Agree2 Disagree4

25 Sep 2017 12:31:45
Its funny that now everyone is waking up and deciding pedro should go. Ice been saying it since we got beat from hibs but I was slated for it. I know some of you will still claim to be behind him and hope for miracles and your probably the same tyoe of person who worries what they will spend the euromilliibs jackpot on. Delusional.

Agree5 Disagree14

25 Sep 2017 13:12:34
It was same with warbs last year fod, beggers belief mate.

Agree2 Disagree10

25 Sep 2017 13:27:14
So what happens when we get rid of him now Fod?, we'd be Up rubbish street again, starting from scratch which we could not afford, he has to be given time, yes it's been a shaky start and we have dropped more points than I honestly expected at this stage but it's a new team heading in the right direction, it's hard for pretty much any team to sign as many new players like we have and hit the ground running, this was and is going to be a slow process I reckon this season and next we will struggle a bit but after that we should be in a better position to really challenge them for the title, it is what it is, we just need to keep supporting our team. Follow Follow 👍🏻

Agree14 Disagree2

25 Sep 2017 13:33:24
Well am still backing him.

Agree14 Disagree3

25 Sep 2017 13:59:22
I'm behind the manager 100% and the new squad that is still gelling after a dozen games or so.

Agree12 Disagree4

25 Sep 2017 14:08:29
Aye well done Fod, are you happy now we are losing to prove your point?

Pedro might not be the answer, so tell me who is? And please, for the love of god don't say Walter Smith.

Agree11 Disagree3

25 Sep 2017 14:32:21
Im behind him, we can't start from scratch, if pedro went so would some of the team and wed be left in the exact same position come on he isn't jesus, we have to give him time and tbh i don't know another manager that would actually be good for us just now that wouldn't cost a fortune, we need time to rebuild think back to the away days at peterhead, yeah well let's give him time

Agree8 Disagree2

25 Sep 2017 14:35:32

its nothing to do with being happy it's more that Fod is just expressing his opinion about the manager something we are all entitled to do. You disagree that's fine however it's a bit of a cheap dig to suggest he is happy about it

Agree1 Disagree7

25 Sep 2017 14:38:05
Can somebody explain this progress we're supposed to be making with solid facts?

We started the league campaign at around 10/ 1 with the bookies and now we're around 40/ 1. We're fifth in the league. We are out of Europe and humiliated on that front. We have a team that can't even show any fight against our greatest rivals on our patch.

When Mark Warburton left we were second in the league and I don't detect a team making progress even after spending £8 million or so in the summer.

Agree4 Disagree5

25 Sep 2017 15:44:46

100% spot on mate and it will be interesting if anyone can come on here with tangible evidence of improvement.

Agree1 Disagree4

25 Sep 2017 16:25:48
Hypothetically if we appointed mcinnes or Wright instead of pedro and still found ourselves in this position what would we be saying? No doubt we would have accused the board of going for a cheap option bla bla bla. Can we stop shouting for sir Walter, we need stability at our club and not end up like Celtic if the late 80's early 90's. Celtic r miles in front n swapping managers every 6-12 months isn't going to claw that back.

Agree5 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 17:14:51
Would like to see Murty involved with the first team.

Agree1 Disagree7

25 Sep 2017 17:20:00
Aberdeen are only 2 pts with McInnes in charge and he is working on a very limited budget.

Agree1 Disagree2

25 Sep 2017 19:01:28
Get mcinnes in👍

Agree2 Disagree4

26 Sep 2017 00:12:26
People saying we can't start from scratch and sack Pedro, at which point do you change your mind? How much can we take before we decide it's not good enough and look elsewhere?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Sep 2017 12:31:14
Just seen highlights of the game on BBC online and there was no footage of the elbow incident! I really get the feeling that the media don't cover these flashpoint fairly, if it was the other way well you can just imagine the headlines!

Agree9 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 12:51:57
there was no elbow incident

Agree2 Disagree8

25 Sep 2017 13:55:30
How are we heading in the right direction? We are struggling in 5th.

Agree3 Disagree6

25 Sep 2017 14:38:09

We aren't heading in any direction tbh. 5th place and knocked out of Europe by a team that wasn't top 3 in Luxembourg. It's sad how far we have fallen that some fans find this acceptable and think the manager is the righ man to take us forward. I don't know how bad it has to get before they realise he isn't good enough

Agree3 Disagree4

25 Sep 2017 20:11:27
There's pictures of elbow incident on DR online. There is a bit of contact but from what I can see of the stills it's a bit soft if u ask me. Hate brown but looks like his arm is up for balance and to block not to harm anyone but again it's only stills of the incident.

Agree1 Disagree2

25 Sep 2017 08:18:01
I still back Pedro, is it his fault we went tits up and got relegated, is it his fault that even if they get pumped celtic still make the champions league and get its money, is it his fault that we had charlatans running and bleeding the club, is it his fault we have had no retail funds in place to help out, his fault we had no tv money when we went down. Answers to all of the above NO! That is 100% the fault of sir david Murray. Now people can say we have spent x amount this year but celtic have spent much more over the years creating depth in their squad that we are finding hard at this stage in dealing with, but this is a new squad heading in the right direction and Pedro has done more for youth than any manager in my memory so give the guy a break.

Agree18 Disagree9

25 Sep 2017 08:32:14

Using that argument then u would still have had McCoist in charge. Your point is ridiculous as our problems are more than just Celtic. I suppose you blame David Murray for the European defeat to Progres or for the fact we don't even try and put tackles in against them and let them beat us easily not once but 3 times. Is it David Murray's fault that Pena can't get fit or Windass only seems to be able to play for 25 mins?

Agree6 Disagree13

25 Sep 2017 09:27:24
Im willing to give Pedro more time BUT the cold hard truth is nothing to do with the money he's spent its just that BR is a far superior manager than him simple as that. their starting 11 that brushed us aside so easily on Sat was all Ronny Ds players apart from Sinclair.

Agree13 Disagree3

25 Sep 2017 09:30:45
He bought sheite players with £10 million he doesn't know where to play them all so he just chucks them in anywhere. he's done and he was done for me after the hibs game. I don't care for him he's an idiot.

Agree4 Disagree10

25 Sep 2017 09:40:11
Not enough Rangers men in the squad but in saying that Dorrans was very poor on the weekend, I have said on here repeatedly we had to build from defence our first choice fullbacks are bad enough but we are on the 4th choice left back now just when we need a good run of results, young mccrorie has been a revelation so much so that when Alves is fit Cardoso should be dropped have we any fit fullbacks in the development squad as Hodson is hopeless really, the board has invested in Pedro so he will be here to the end of the season regardless I do question his tactics and team choice at times, lastly in order to finish second this year we might have to buy moult walker and McClean in January instead of getting them for free at the end of the season.

Agree5 Disagree4

25 Sep 2017 09:42:16
Pedro must go!
Defense still crap!
Need a British manager!
Not won 3 games in a row!
The board picked him they're responsible!

Agree5 Disagree9

25 Sep 2017 10:37:30
Gary, we are struggling in 5th how the feck are we heading in the right direction? He has spent 8mil this summer, stop making silly excuses and open your eyes.

Agree1 Disagree6

25 Sep 2017 11:01:49
Geomac everything you have stated is true I dint get why people are disagreeing with you mate but you get that on here alot, some can't take the truth. Mcleish will be in by xmad don't worry.

Agree2 Disagree7

25 Sep 2017 11:26:04
We should give Pedro until Christmas and if we are languishing in 3rd or worse and are double points behind celtic then he should go. God knows who should replace him! I thought Tavernier was one of our better players on Saturday and I'd like to see him played further forward. We have Hodson, John, Beerman and Wallace (when fit) as full backs. McCrorie was very good as well. We must go on a run and win five or six on the trot.

Agree0 Disagree2

25 Sep 2017 12:15:54
we need a british manager? really? who? let's look at the english premier league ok? man u em nope many city erm nope liverpool? newcastle? chelsea? . british manager? who?

Agree5 Disagree1

25 Sep 2017 12:38:02
Im also still backing pedro. I see people comparing his signings to advocats and walters. But peds had nowhere near as much as them 2 to spend!

Agree6 Disagree2

25 Sep 2017 21:59:44
Fod, Mr Caixinha may indeed prove not to be the manager we need. I say may, as I really hope he does. The players he has brought in, May or may not make it. Just like what happens with any other manager. It's a gamble. Usually the more money you spend the more chance you have of getting it correct. However I will tell you something, he is certainly not an idiot! He is the manager of Rangers and he deserves a little bit more respect from you sir.
