1st time poster, and as a Rangers fan and season ticket holder of 35 years I'm utterly embarrassed at some of the so called Rangers fans posting on here and calling for the mangers head at this stage!
1st things first - Pedro's record last season needs to completely ignored. He inherited a bunch of players who were bought specifically by Warbuton to play a certain style of football. Most weren't good enough to achieve even that. What chance did Pedro have trying to get them to play to his preferred style - absolutely none.
Secondly, the Progres game came at a time when the majority of our new signing had been at the club for less than 2 weeks (some less than a week) . Granted, it was a dreadful performance, but some degree of perspective needs to be taken here. We hit the bar 3 times in the second half. Had any of those chances gone in, we'd have gone through.
Thirdly, anybody that knows anything about football, knows not to place any emphasis on pre season friendlies, particularly bounce games.
Time to wise up guys. Give the manager and the players a chance, and get behind the team. If we don't, they have no chance of any form of success, because they'll be on the back foot before they even take to the park on a Saturday.

Big-J70 if your a season ticket holder for 35 years then you'll know that the fans have called for managers heads that had far better records than pedros.
second, the progress game is the worst result in our history and it happened on pedros watch, if the players were not ready then simply don't play them and play a team that is ready.
Thirdly no-one is placing too much emphasis on bounce games but on top of two humpings by them one by a record score, a fist defeat at Ibrox in 26 years by the sheep and two terrible results against a bunch of amateurs then the emphasis changes.
I'll be at Ibrox tomorrow cheering my team on win or lose but that does not stop me having ( and expressing ) MY opinion on here and if that embarrasses you then i apologise.

Well said Big J-70 I was one of the fans shouting for his head on here and still think few results have been highly unacceptable but all things considered we have no choice but to get behind the team and manager . We can all criticise but that achieves nothing so tomorrow a big loud support is what's needed.

Absolute garbage bigj70 re Ped's record needing to be ignored last season - he should not have been brought in at that time if it was inevitable he couldn't get warbs players to play his way - why would we bring someone in to fail so spectacularly? He is a professional manager and should have done better - G Murty showed him how to play against the untouchables but he ignored it which seems both arrogant and foolish considering what subsequently happened. I am a supporter with over 40 years of experience watching Rangers ; I will always support my team and I pray Ped is a success but it is important that debate and comment are not stifled ; we can all recognise bleating whining knee jerk reactions for what they are; we can all appreciate that time must be given and patience encouraged but none of us can say this is the start we wanted and to acknowledge that is no act of treachery - sticking your head in the and and your a*#e in the air would be, though

If you think that last seasons results don't count then your just not in touch with the reality of football management. Which is astonishing seeing as though you say you have been a season ticket holder for 35 years. Any record defeats or shocking displays in cup semi finals against Celtic are always remembered and will always be used against any manager. Throw in the most embarrassing result ever for a Scottish side in Europe and the scrutiny on the manager and his record as manager gets more intense. You can pretend those results didn't happen last year but in the real world they will be used and no matter what you think they do matter

Big j hope you right but have huge doubts in pedro

Jyf. The team that lost so heavily to Celtic and also lost to Aberdeen at Ibrox for the first time in 26 years, was basically the same team that played in the Championship the season before. Had we played Celtic and Aberdeen in each of the cups during that Championship season and lost in the same manner and by the same score, would you have been calling for Warburtons head before he finished the season and got us promoted?
Re your point about Progres game, hindsight is a wonderful thing!

22 Jul 2017 11:39:36
Stevie fyi there is no such thing as a scared tim. They are extinct, cease to be, just like the parrot scetch. We all know now u are no longer the challenge and aberdeen are. Read on these pages and 99 % believe that they just want to close the gap.

Big J you might have had a season ticket for 35 years but you obviously have not been paying attention recently, warbs beat the tims at hampden remember? pedro lost twice in a week with two of the most abysmal performances I have witnessed. HINDSIGHT are you kidding me that was the point of my post, pedro lost heavily twice to them and once to the sheep so the writing was on the wall BEFORE the progress game and it remains on the wall no hindsight needed on my part. I've said it before but you are going to have a good season where I'm expecting to be squirming on my seat week in week out so good luck I really really hope I am wrong.
