Despite our indifferent form we are still within 5 points of Septic though they have a game in hand. The Sheep are only 2 points behind them. They aren't as good as they think they are and I've said that all along. If we'd put the games against Hamilton, Dundee and St. Johnstone to bed (with all respect to them) we'd be 4 points clear at the top. I don't understand how we can turn in performances good enough to beat Aberdeen (twice) and Hibs then lose these games. Something isn't right and it ain't Murty's fault.

Aberdeens minds were elsewhere when we played them and to say we out in a good performance against hibs is laughable. We stole the points from that hibs game.

Surely the lads must be looking at the league table and thinking hang on a minute we are not playing to our best yet we are still in touch with top spot. That's got to be motivation to lift your game

It’s quite simple really too many poor players in the squad. Alves looks disinterested. Pena, Herrera and Candeias have been woeful and Holt isn’t good enough if you expect to challenge for the league. We also lack creativity in the midfield, are too easy to score against and have only 1 striker who scores and even he went through a long lean spell recently. In short Pedro was an unmitigated disaster and whoever sanctioned his move from the board should have followed him out the door. Murty is doing his best and seems to be the only one who talks any sense. The Rangers board are a disgrace and aren’t fit for purpose

One glimmer of hope is the form of the young players brought in. McCrorie, Wilson, Bates, Barjonas all look good but they can't be expected to carry the burden of a mediocre team. Morelos is clearly a natural goalscorer but can't do it all on his own. I do think Holt has been very good recently but probably not quite the class we need. Windass blows hot and cold and Miller is finished, physically. We might finish 2nd this season, but more realistically 3rd. The Board need to put up or sell up and do so quickly. They have neither the money nor the vision to dig us out of this hole.

Excellent post. There's a very interesting article in today's Evening Times and it makes for difficult reading. It references the average player ability we have and raises big question marks about some of Pedro's signings, things we talk about here. Says Herrera's on 20K a week and one of the highest earners in the league. Makes you wonder.

As far as I can see just now it pretty simple, our team are just not mentally tough enough. They cannot cope with the expectation that comes with playing the so called 'lesser teams' at home. All the training in the world won't fix this, the players simply are not individually or collectively of strong enough mind to wear the Rangers shirt and carry the weight of expectation that comes with it. As for Saturday, only Declan John and young McCrorie got near to pass marks. Fotheringham does not command his box, Tavernier was as poor a RB as I have seen on Saturday, Holt is all effort but little quality etc, etc. Need yet another re-build I'm afraid

We need an attacking midfielder with a bit of pace.

i have thought it was a bottle issue in the past, more i think about it though i would need to agree with Brian and say its ability that's the main issue. Our starting eleven has players signed on free from the likes of Wigan, Swindon, Accrington, Hearts, Aberdeen. Are we really surprised that they can't perform regularly? We point to the budget we have but that's more the fact its grossly mismanaged and boys are earning way above their value, rather than a true indication of quality

Doiger you are definitely winner of the most pointless post of the year, the old if we had won this or that game scenario.
Don't you know Aberdeen fans are saying the same thing, or Thistle fans saying if we hadn't lost last 10 games blah blah, total and utter nonsense.
If I had posted If only PSG never scored 7 on the Celtic page we would a won 1-0 u would be giving pelters for something like that and its exactly the same.
What you need to do is grow a pair and call your team as it is and stop deluding yourself (i know u can't help it) .
Maybe Celtic aren't a great team but we are good in Scotland and decent in Europe, whilst you are decent in Scotland and a non entitiy in Europe.
Its amazing how you are such a good judge of celtic but no idea when judging your own team.
