Let me begin by saying i'm totally behind and 100% believe in our manager steven gerrard.
Having said that of course when you're the manager of a football institution, the size of ours, the honeymoon period does only last for so long. I honestly do believe if we don't beat kilmarnock, in the replay at ibrox on wednesday, some of our supporters will be totally on gerrard's back and have the knives out for him. These supporters will turn, if we don't win, this game on wednesday, which is now becoming a season defining game! For me, I back the manager and his management team to the hilt and believe strongly in him.
If we're patient and give him time in his rebuild of rangers, i truly think we will reap the rewards, of having steven gerrard, as our manager. I truly think he'll take us to where we want to be, within his 4 year contract with us. Remember fellow bears, he's only had 2 transfer windows to date! What i strongly feel gerrard must do, is find his best 11 and play them continually, until either injured or a 4 or 5 game bad run of form. He has to stop the continual chopping and changing, to gain continuity, IMO! Gerrard is learning as a manager aswell, we have to remember. No use chopping and changing manager's and a big cull of players all the time! We have to be patient and give gerrard time and i truly think, it will be all good in the end. "LETS GO"!

Agree Super cooper but he needs to coach these midfielders how it's done. Look at the improvement in Callum McGregor for example under the great unwashed regime. He must also look at Grezda Dorrans etc and wonder how to solve that scenario.

Spot on post i just hope gerrard learns from these mistakes and we can have a clear out of the squad in the summer as it is really needed we have to many squad players just now at the club or on loan
This would then allow us to free money up to buy quality players and support them with our younger players as squad players.
I am not in favour of the loan market and do not want to see this many loan players at the club again use our youngsters instead.

He's had 2 transfer windows and totally made a mess of the January one. I thought Davis would have been rusty but honestly didn't think he'd be so bad, completely slows us down and the system that Gerard plays to try and fit him in clearly doesn't work. Hate to say it, but look across the city, they added pace with Burke, Wheah, and the ivory Coast striker and we've slowed our team down. Davis has to go back after the 6 months and if Defoe stays he needs a partner, can't play the lone striker.

Agree. SG has to stop tinkering so much. That's my main criticism. I don't think we have the depth of quality to do so.

He is the man to lead us forward.

Do you truly think that aye?

Yeah January was not good, I actually think Shankland would have been a better option, cheap no risk signing. While I say that Gerrard hasn't exactly helped Defoe by playing him up front on his own. If he is still going to go 1 up top with Morelos out, surely it should have been Lafferty purely because he can put himself about more.

Great post coops, completely agree. I'm not a fan of bringing back former players tbh and can only think of a couple of times when this has worked out (McGregor and Barry Ferguson) . There is probably more but can't think of them at the moment. To be fair to the manager the Davis loan did make sense but with the lack of game time he has had is making it difficult for him to find his fitness and touch. On the plus side he may still come good. Don't forget he is a quality player who has played regularly at the highest level. I was never a big fan of Lafferty to be honest but i've mentioned before on here that he always tended to hit his best form during the last few months of the season so maybe the best is yet to come from him. I've a feeling that there may well be a few twusts and turns still to come yet. Remember there are still 2 OF games to come.
