If we slip up against Dundee next Saturday and Aberdeen and Hibs don't, we'll end up in fourth place come Saturday night. What is the situation regarding qualification for European competition? Is it 3rd, 4th and 5th get in the Europa League? On the positive side, maybe Motherwell will do us a favour against the Sheep then they have Hearts away after that. Strange that a short time ago we thought we might nick the league and be a point or so behind the unwashed and now worrying if we might not even finish in the top 3!

Interesting point you've made there. I know a lot people will not agree with me as the done thing is to slate your competitors and also slate your teams performance. However i honestly believe that the top 6 teams have upped their game. I will highlight Killi at the moment as they have really impressed me since Steve Clark got the job. Motherwell have also been a different beast this season and Hearts have looked good even with a massively depleted squad. I know we have a culture of hatred, which i am sure i will be slated for not following here, but i am actually starting to enjoy Scottish football. I can watch teams and see some great young scottish talent playing week in, week out. That Allan Campbell at Motherwell looked great if i'm honest. Hearts have a good 4 or 5 young teenagers who look great and Killi have young Greg taylor/ Greg Kiltie. I can't help but feel positive about the overall direction of Scottish football. Truthfully, Rangers are exactly where i would expect them to be with a team who haven't been able to put out a consistent starting XI for a run of games, have had 4 different manager in the past 3 years, probably turned over in excess of 50 squad players. We need consistency on and off the pitch and that requires patience from us as fans. we can say we have closed the gap, because we have. the gap last year was 39points. This year the gap is 4 wins. 12 points. Last year there was also a 34 point gap between 2nd and 6th. This year that gap is just 16 points. My point being- We have improved. but for the good of scottish football. Everyone else has as well.

Teddy well wrote post mate, agree with everything you say

02 Apr 2018 10:57:03
Teddy you are correct to a point. Top 6 teams have improved and Celtic have gone backwards. Regardless of that no one is going to stop Celtic over the next few seasons

02 Apr 2018 11:08:58
Hey Johnny and RTMonkey- thanks for the responses. Johnny- I kind of felt the same the other day, but how can someone define that Celtic have gone backwards? Would you say the quality of their team was not as high as last year? Because i disagree there. it's almost identical. The big difference is the teams who have taken points from them. Kille/ Hearts/ Motherwell/ Hibs and us. Are you saying that it's more down to Celtic going backwards or the other teams moving forwards?

02 Apr 2018 11:11:01
Seen some good posts on here but that is the most honest and best post teddy. Well said.

02 Apr 2018 11:13:42
Thanks mate!

02 Apr 2018 12:12:29
Excellent post Teddy! I agree, I think we can see that the like of Hibs, Kilmarnock and Motherwell have improved considerably this season. I don't think Celtic have necessarily gone back, rather stayed the same but the competition has got better, including us. Had Murty been given the job on a permanent basis instead of Pedro who knows where we would be in the league now? Don't forget our younger players too like McCrorie, Bates, Docherty and Murphy. I'd like to see others from the youth team given more of a chance too. The games after the split should be interesting with everyone taking points of one another!

02 Apr 2018 12:15:53
TOTS, i reiterate what the other guys said regarding how well your post was written mate! Out of a matter of interest who would you want to be our next manager mate?

02 Apr 2018 12:31:20
Supercooper it's not a matter of who people want it's a matter of who is available and how much they would want for a wage and also playing budget.

Big Sam would not come for any less than 3 million a year and he is not even worth that. Padrew is hopeless and would also want 2 million a year again not worth it.

You can put all the names in here you want but no one knows who shall be next manager and I include the board in that.

02 Apr 2018 12:42:45
Hey Doiger - Believe me i had not forgotten them, i am however disappointed not to see more of them this term. Barjonas i thought had the potential to at least be bench for most of this season. Bates has dramatically improved and I was gutted about McCrorie. Also shouldn't forget that Declan, Docherty and Morelos are all 21/ 22 so with barrels of potential. Supercoop- Honestly i like Murty, yes he is new and inexperienced at this level, but Rangers is developing in every aspect, so i don't see why getting a hugely expensive, experienced manager would make a blind bit of difference. Murty has class, he handles himself well under ridiculous pressure to win every game. He has not had his 2 starting midfielders (Jack and Dorrans) and has had to change his CB partnership on an almost weekly basis. For me, he deserves the chance and i am still confident we will claim 2nd.

02 Apr 2018 12:46:18
I say again, Chris Hughton of Brighton. Looks like they are safe in the EPL but I don't think he can take them any further.

02 Apr 2018 13:05:29
Not a Rumour- Have to agree with you. In an ideal world i'd love to have a high calibre manager come in. But in honesty would what they bring to the table? For me, Murty is the way forward. Young, complete understanding of our youth system and players, understanding of the Scottish game. Developing himself as well as the team. All he needs is time.

02 Apr 2018 13:17:54
Problem we have is we don’t have time

02 Apr 2018 13:23:32
Doiger - Hughton is proven to be a decent manager, so can't argue with your choice at all. I would say that Wagner would be decent as well. For me the only issue i see with our current coaching staff is Johansson. I just can't figure out what he would bring to the table that wee Barry wouldn't improve on.

02 Apr 2018 13:37:03
I'm 100% with you on graeme murty getting the rangers manager's job permanently! If you've read my posts teddyofthesouth, i have continually said almost identically, to what you've just posted regarding why murty deserves a chance beyond this season! So i find myself again,
wholeheartedly, commending your very well written post!

02 Apr 2018 14:22:04
thanks Supercoop- I follow your posts often and have agreed with a lot you have said so i appreciate your response. For me it's a no brainer. Murty is a likeable guy who has been thrown in the deepend in the middle of a marathon and so far, he has managed to stay afloat. I'd say that is commendable. he needs to add a bit of steal to his management team in my opinion. Good cop, bad cop type methodology. Personal i'd like wee Barry in

02 Apr 2018 15:00:27
I think most fans have realised murts is not the answer to mamager, s job. my choice would be souness or butcher or both. I think any of them would be better than those being touted would, nt cost the earth and would instill fear into non performers. they know the club and it, s expectations.

02 Apr 2018 15:25:41
What would a proven high calibre manager bring? Eh? Signing a proven, successful and respected man would give us something we haven't had for years. Nobody doubts murty is a nice enough bloke but 1 point out of the last 9, the consistently poor home form. I don't care how much killie have improved, WE should be beating them at home! I sincerely hope we finish 2nd and win the cup but right now that very unlikely

02 Apr 2018 15:47:29
Graeme souness will NEVER be a manager again blue bear! The guy has had his fair share of heart problems and has repeatedly stated he will NEVER go back to being a manager! Now on to terry butcher mate! God you've honestly got to be at the madam here! No danger should terry butcher be anywhere near being even spoke about, to be the glasgow rangers manager!

02 Apr 2018 16:49:05
Of course butcher won't get the managers job. But just how is murty so much better? Aye I know he's pal's with Allen but apart from that?

02 Apr 2018 16:54:30
I'm more inclined to believe that we and the rest haven't really improved and that it's more the case that we're all as poor as each other, Celtic included, having not missed a home game at ibrox this season, I honestly can't remember a game I've came home and thought that was a great game by 2 great footballing teams.

standard in Scottish football is terrible, and to suggest it's anything else is just rubbish, and will be proven when we're all out of Europe again when the weans school holidays aren't even over.

02 Apr 2018 19:24:17
Surely the only way to gauge any improvement of the Scottish game will be how the teams that qualify for the Europa league qualifying rounds do. All very well saying the game has improved however that needs to be shown in better performances in Europe only then can we say the game has improved

03 Apr 2018 01:56:32
Eddie Howe.

I know money would be an issue but a young dynamic Manager who won’t win anything with his current club.

Thoughts Bears🇬🇧

03 Apr 2018 08:19:17
Grant you this Greyfriar, eddie howe is a very good young manager and of course like probably many bears, would think he'd be an absolute brilliant appointment for us, but here's the but! Howe's career will remain in england with a much bigger club than bournemouth! Maybe arsenal even as early as next season who knows!

03 Apr 2018 11:44:14
I can't deny that Europe will be the litmus test to gauge Scottish footballs progress. Quick question on how people would gauge progress for our club?

2nd place finish? Smaller points gap? Win against Celtic in the cup? What will define our season right now?
