Oh aye there’s Allan McGregor ready to come back up the road at 36 year old.

Funny how many players would ‘love’ to return for a final pay day once they are passed it.

He can bolt, another club can have him.

We need a solid CDM and two new CB’s in the summer. This Rangers team gifts far more chances to the opposition than the Smith sides McShagger played in.

Just over a year ago I posted on here saying I didn't think we were going through the normal phase of "cyclical domination". I suggested that during Celtic's nine in a row (1966-1975) that:

1) Rangers were a very good team

2) The finances were comparable for the European Cup as they were for CWC or UEFA Cup and that there was no financial gap gained through that route, indeed if memory serves Ibrox was about 8,000 capacity bigger than Celtic Park at the time.

I suggested there was more than hope to keep Rangers fans encouraged. I then moved onto Rangers domination (1989-1998). On the park it wasn't close, Celtic were awful for the bulk of it, off the park financially it was equally leaning in Rangers favour, admittedly via the Bank Of Scotland more so than David Murray but you reap what you sow.

I suggested Celtic's only light at the end of the tunnel was that the club wasn't "tapped out", it was a sleeping giant and that an investor could make a pretty penny. He could and he did and his name was Fergus McCann. I said last year that I didn't see any such glimmers of hope in Rangers stopping Celtic dominance.

The club was tapped out, the difference on the field was marked and the revenue streams were vastly different even without Celtic making the Champions League, with the CL it becomes almost a 3:1 ratio in revenue, a vast chasm in Scottish football.

So moving on roughly 13 months what has happened? Celtic won the league leaving Rangers in their wake to the tune of 39 points including a 5-1 victory at Ibrox (since which there has been two more) . The Scottish Cup was won in May, the treble completed without one domestic loss. Moving on to this season Celtic again qualified for the CL and improved on last season overall in Europe by making it through to the last 32 of EL. Rangers got knocked out at the first hurdle by Luxembourg's 4th best team!

We then retained the League Cup, are in the semi finals of the Scottish Cup and look on course for 7 in a row. Now sure the points differential is down but I think Europe has played a part in that. Last season we were effectively out of Europe after 3 games of the CL group stages, 1 point gained, 2 away games to come and our home game, Barcelona.

This season it was 3 points after 2 games, a (at the time) under performing Bayern double header and Anderlecht at home to come, it didn't go as hoped but a lot of domestic points were dropped either side of those European games. Even Liverpool with their far bigger resources have won once in seven attempts in the game after their European efforts.

It's a hard slog, align that to playing 12 games more than Rangers so far this season and numerous more players on international duty and I think you'll find any closing of the gap was more a factor of demands on Celtic players than Rangers improvement, not convinced? You are only four points better off than last season at this point (31 games played) and all of you would say last season was dire, so four points better than dire is hardly a massive transformation is it? In that time we have also saw Warburton, Murty, Pedro, Murty.

And now we get to the real ugly bit, the ever widening financial gap, as mentioned Celtic have made over £30m again from European football, have, if memory serves, £16m in cash in the bank and that is without receiving all of UEFA's payments for the season. Rangers have in this last 13 months caught the attention of TAP, failed miserably to change that decision in the Court Of Session, King has to make an offer for all shares.

The annual accounts were signed off on a promise by King to have NOAL provide the £4m or so required to keep the lights on for the remainder of the season but he can't tell TAP he's skint and do that too, so he didn't live up to his promise and now Close Brothers (the Wonga.com of the football world) have loaned you £3m with the kitchens, WIFI and a car park being used amongst other things as the collateral. At least last year you had no external debt but even that ship has sailed now.

And finally to the three Bears, they are owed a good deal of money and the understanding was that this debt would be converted to shares when there was a new IPO. Now combined with King's 10.4% or so of the shares, they managed (despite an email begging him not to) to pass the 30% share ownership, this led to TAP's investigation and their conclusion that there was indeed a concert party Now that puts them on 20% themselves, any debt conversion puts them on TAP's radar and a refusal to convert that debt sees the club fall foul of FFP by UEFA as you are over their losses threshold, damned if you do, damned if you don't, does anyone really think this is still going to be cyclical?

gazo what is the point of you post, have you applied for a job on our board or something

19 Mar 2018 18:31:52
i need matchsticks just to keep my eyes open

20 Mar 2018 11:25:12
@queens11 - I would rather set myself on fire with said matchsticks than read that drivel. It’s a regurgitation of a previous post of his. If you miss it this time I’m sure he’ll copy and paste in another 6 months! 🙉🙈🐵

20 Mar 2018 13:32:21
Did you not post the same just a few weeks ago? I know time flies, but that is taking the biscuit.

19 Mar 2018 13:52:44
IMO I think we need to strengthen and thin out the squad those to go are.
Miller ( coaching staff)
And then bring in McLaughlin from hearts on a bosman and there are anumberof good cb

Agree1 Disagree2

19 Mar 2018 16:13:50
👍agree with all the outs. I'd like to bring in 2 cbs from McKenna, Berra, Bartley

19 Mar 2018 16:15:11
I'd like malumbu or MacArthur too

19 Mar 2018 20:46:55
would take mulumbu in a minute bosses midfield would be great signing

19 Mar 2018 13:35:34
afternoon bears really painful last week for us only to be made worse watching the unwashed motherwell game, that mob are really poor and are there for the beating in fact if it wasn't for peanut head getting kipre sent off, i think they would have were the better team up till that point.

i think we should try and sign mulumbo he should and has before been playing at a higher level and brakes up play and bosses the midfield imo would be great signing and for only a few quid thoughts bears.

steve Clarke should have been appointed manager of our club in the summer, not Pedro, and while I don't rate Murty or blame him for the results and lack of tactics, I do believe he is not the guy for the job, he was the u20 coach, what's he doing in charge of Glasgow Rangers first team? . and another thing, supercooper, are u dave king, on here to champion murty so u don't need to dip into your pocket and get us an experienced manager that our club needs and deserves.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Mar 2018 17:31:12
"supercooper, are u dave king"?
No he's some tabloid hack. He's trying to disguise it now, but his posts used to always sound like tabloid-speak. When mentioning anybody, he always gave the name and job title (e. g. the Rangers manager, Graeme Murty) . The only thing missing was the persons age in brackets.

19 Mar 2018 22:47:22
@WS - for Clarke read Wright or McInnes. All not fit to manage Rangers. What has Clarke done except have 6 good months at Killie to be even mentioned for the Rangers gig?
Why not popcorn teeth who's having a good season with the Hivs?
Why not Ross at St Mirren who's having a good season?
If any of the above are your level of ambition then our standards as Rangers fans have seriously dropped.

Deffo need rid of players in the summer

Lee hodson is an absolute joke of a LB he's spl league 3 level

Niko kranjcar where do I start he's picking up wages for nothing never fit enough remind u of anyone?

Agree0 Disagree1

Hopefully in the summer we can get the deadwood out of Ibrox.
My list to go

Miller (coaching staff possibly)

Loans I would send back

Dalcio (who)
Cummings (overhyped)
Goss (lightweight)

We should look to bring in Mulumbu from Killie just to start with as he's still only 30 he could run the midfield for the next 3/ 4 years.
Look forward to being slated. :)

Agree3 Disagree4

19 Mar 2018 10:12:28
O'halloran out too, malumbu, Berra or Bartley to play with mccrorie maybe Cadden and jones for competition for places out wide if not malumbu then maybe MacArthur

18 Mar 2018 14:10:19
Go out and get Stevie Clarke now before someone else does. Knows how to set a team up and know how to snub teams out.

Agree0 Disagree8

Getting a bit fed up with the panic merchants who only ever want to give a boss a couple of months in charge. Remember why Murts is in charge. We didn't have the money to attract a big name manager who would want guarantees about finances for big name players. Terrible result yesterday but let's support GM at least untill the end of the season.

18 Mar 2018 17:52:03
Getting fed up with the same people not realising or at least admitting to realise that Murty is just not good enough

17 Mar 2018 17:52:34
Well guys last week was a disappointing result. But 9 points off them and 5 points clear of aberdeen. we are playing some good stuff on the park and I hope last weekend is forgotten about. Let's pick ourselves up and get right back on with it.

Agree1 Disagree2

17 Mar 2018 23:23:52
Love your positivity but 9 points off them with them having 2 games in hand and now 2 points clear of the sheep with them having a game in hand also so potentially 15 points behind and sitting 3rd 1 point behind sheep. so yes let's pick ourselves up but start winning games

17 Mar 2018 12:45:51
The negativity is frightening on here. "doomed before we start! " Get a grip on the real world please!?
