John just in response to your post below. Yes that’s where I absolutely agree, time is catching up with Tav now and I believe that will weaken his clear strengths which is bombing forward. I think it’s time for him to go but to go with respect and huge thanks for all his efforts to the club from lower league to European final.

On the Scott Wright question. I like the lad and like his attitude. Whether he’s “good enough” for Rangers is debatable however he always puts in a shift when called upon and is prepared to do the dirty work, as shown when brought on against Celtic. He’s a lad I always will to do well because he’s a likeable lad. He’s certainly not the worst footballer I’ve seen but perhaps lacks some consistency. One thing I will say about Scott is that he doesn’t hide, he always looks to get involved and try and make things happen. He’s been a very good squad player for us, in my opinion.

Good response Alloa, my point like tav the same four managers play wright.

2.) 25 May 2024 09:49:28
What's your take on scott wright, John ? do you rate him mate ?.

3.) 25 May 2024 10:06:52
Time for face to go and wright should never have been signed as he's never been good enough.

4.) 25 May 2024 10:55:56
Well said guys, 4 managers can't be wrong, can they? The lad gets horrendous abuse, but then I suppose he's not the only one. Some of the comments I've read on here regarding 95% of the squad and management are horrendous. Most of us have thrown in the towel for today already. May as well just deliver the cup to them right now. I've a sneaky feeling we might be the ones roaring with joy at the final whistle today. As Coops says, they are in no way unbeatable come on guys, let's do this.



24 May 2024 21:06:03
Just a point re a post further down where someone said Tav was “officially” the worst rangers captain! So the fact he’s been playing in the least successful rangers team make him the worst captain? So on that basis allan McGregor is officially our worst goalkeeper then? Tav is also the uk’s highest ever scoring defender!

Don’t just blame Tav for the poor record of trophies over the last 13 or whatever years, blame the board, managers and the rest of the squad. If you want to talk abilities, I’d say havin Rae and Craig Paterson were worse captains than Tav.


1.) 24 May 2024 21:53:51
Captain has to take more responsibility than the rest of the team, that’s obvious.

The blame has to be shared with the managers and the board.

2.) 24 May 2024 22:27:38
Most Rangers captains didn't have to start with us in the Championship either. A captain that took us from there to a Europa League final, barely missed a minute and for the most part was a consistent top performer in the team deserves respect. If the rest of our best 11 every season could even have his fitness levels we would have won more trophies over the years.

3.) 24 May 2024 22:34:15
Well said I always thought Tav has been unjustly vilified by certain of our supporters without his goals it would be a whole lot worse and I can’t remember too many captains leading us to a European final.

4.) 25 May 2024 00:39:52
Tavs been a great servant, but as far as captains and trophies he's been poor no matter what the circumstances are. Am a fan of tav but can see he's going backwards just now, just age it catches up with all of us. Put your allegiances to the side just admit that if we continue with him as our captain and rb things are only going to get worse, honestly wouldn't like to see that. He's absolutely played his heart out for us, but every player on earth has a shelf life, unfortunately for tav his has come. I honestly struggle to understand how even his biggest fans can't see this or maybe don't want to. I honestly feel for him when he comes up against maeda.

5.) 25 May 2024 00:43:33
Spot on Huey, the commitment the man has shown to the club is second to none. The disrespect is unbelievable.

6.) 25 May 2024 09:28:11
An objective way of looking at it would be to say: "Has Tav been better for Rangers than Rangers has been to Tav? "

If the answer to that question is "no", then it is time to put sentimentality aside and replace him with someone younger.

Same with Goldson and Lundtrum. I might be wrong, but we'll see later today.

Celtic sometimes score in the first 5-minutes against us. Let's see if we can end the season without that happening again.

7.) 25 May 2024 09:57:54
Couldn’t agree more, he slots into any Gers team at his best imagine him supplying Hately etc.



24 May 2024 18:49:05
This post won’t be popular but just seen the Dessers interview where clearly the guy feels like a “scapegoat” and how he felt at the club whilst trying to settle in to a new country. How he was being labelled the worst ever player to play for Rangers. Got me thinking, after reading some of the comments on here re him and Tav, what a horrible way to treat one of our own and making some lad feel like that when he’s only trying to do his best. Yes we may have better strikers than him but he’s stood up and never let us down, played every game he’s been asked to play. What use are out better strikers if they’re injured. And if he’s not good enough that’s the managers fault for picking him, not his. Disgusting way to treat our own.


1.) 24 May 2024 19:16:37
Correct AlloaGer?We should be supporting our players and some of the terrible assaults on our players by some on here is absolutely not called for shocking ? Support the team.

2.) 24 May 2024 19:36:50
Alloa that’s how bad we’ve got. I mean we’re not quite ready to start throwing fences at our players, at least it’s social media mostly but as a fan base I wish we were less entitled and actually applied some intelligence to our criticism. At some point we’ve lost the ability to grasp the level that we can attract. Yes we should be demanding more from the club than what we’ve had but on a player by player level, far too quick to write them off and say they’re garbage.

You missed Lundstrum out in that. Has he been poor? Yes. Has he had a break? No. As bad as he’s been, I think a fair few on here would have him in their top 5 this year. Prob says more about the rest tbf but he was brilliant for a spell. Dessers needed to settle but most fans had him binned off. We’ll get our money back, or close, for Dessers this summer if he’s up for grabs. Possibly not in the right league.

3.) 24 May 2024 19:39:35
He’s had a solid first season and I hope he’s here next season, I agree that we need better up top but he certainly has a place in the squad if he wants to stay.

There’s a hell of a lot worse in our squad regardless of what the usual suspects stay.

4.) 24 May 2024 19:43:36
"Terrible assaults"! Please, let's refrain from such over exaggeration, coops. ???.

5.) 24 May 2024 19:48:46
Is 2nd every season now acceptable walter? Were getting roasted from them continuously do the players deserve a pat on the back? A wage rise maybe? Tav our worst ever captain offically. And yet continues to be rewarded.

6.) 24 May 2024 20:05:38
Best fans in the world lads.

7.) 24 May 2024 20:13:48
Raisetheroofe, some of the comments have been over the top and personal at times and i'll flip it back to you ie. some of the things posted about tav have been over exaggerated mate ?.

8.) 24 May 2024 21:40:29
People are allowed their opinions, Walter. yours is to defend Tavernier to the hilt regardless of how poor he is. Why are you taking it personally? It's as if you're just doubling down regardless of what he does on the pitch. I want to see my team win trophies regularly again and it won't be while he and many like him are still there, they are simply not good enough. New manager, new players, new captain, new era hopefully.

9.) 24 May 2024 22:08:11
Walter why do u never answer the question re your treatment of Jon McLaughlin.

10.) 24 May 2024 22:10:18
Assaults? To far! We pay our hard earned cash to follow rangers everywhere, if we don't think there good enough we are entitled to voice that. Do you think we should just pay our money and shut up? These guys get loads of money to play for our club, need to take the good with the bad. I'll take the blame for everything and you can abuse me every day of the week fir £20,000 a week. Who said he's the worst rangers player ever? Absolute nonsense, aactually a good player we just need better. He should play every game he's asked that's what he's paid to do Alloa.



21 May 2024 21:21:32
Ok time for a bit of positivity. We were miles ahead of them when we won the league, and look at how good they came back the next year. Some shrewd signings and we can close what isn’t a massive gap. They won’t spend a massive amount of money and they’d need to do better the standard of their players. Keep the faith.


1.) 21 May 2024 21:56:57
They spent 25m mate and we need to do similar.

2.) 21 May 2024 22:32:41
People thinking they’re going to improve next season aren’t correct imo. Yes they have the money but when O’Reilly goes they are never going to sign someone as good as him so automatically they’re weaker in midfield. Can improve their defence a bit but other than that I can’t see it. We can’t get much worse going off the last 10 games.

3.) 21 May 2024 23:23:00
It's not what you spend but the way that you spend it and that's what gets results. Brendan is limited with who he can attract to SPL with that wee black book of his.

4.) 21 May 2024 23:33:44
Problem is they will spend £25 million on 3/ 4 players we’d need to get in 8/ 10 for or £25million.

5.) 22 May 2024 09:42:15
It looks to me as if a great deal of effort is going in to shifting players out and identifying new players that fit the player trading model to bring in. I don't mind waiting until this time next year to see where we are then. Clement is a relatively thick-skinned critter and I'm all for giving him enough time to get it right, or moving in a good healthy direction at least, either that or enough rope to hang himself. It will be one or the other, but I am optimistic and really hope he does it.



14 May 2024 22:31:32
Ok so for me Cantwell can’t play as the forward midfielder in a midfield 3 against Celtic, because we get overrun. I’d play him up front with dessers and silva but give him licence to roam across the front and link up the play. I know it was only dundee but we looked far more fluid tonight. Although to be fair we played that second half with 5 attacking players which we’d never do against Celtic.


1.) 15 May 2024 03:52:14
I agree he was all over the place first half and when he did get the ball he was holding it too long. Great second half further forward and picking ball up and popping it off quickly before getting into positions to recieve it again, much better.

Agree we need a more disciplined third in midfield but Cantwell probably should be played in 11 further forward.

2.) 15 May 2024 06:49:25
Too busy diving about and being concerned about the referee in the first half. Typical of him. Actually turns up far too infrequently which is very frustrating given he is talented.

3.) 15 May 2024 07:45:08
I honestly didn't think cantwell was all over the place in the first half, as you put it coully ?I thought he was roughed up a good few times in that first half, with very little protection ?In the second half he was easily the best footballer on show and undoubtedly has the talent/ ability in him especially playing as the no 10, just off the striker ?His football brain i've always said is way ahead of his teammates at times and is a very clever footballer ?I undoubtedly hope we keep him because he is a class footballer for me ?He also has a 1 in 4 goalscoring record for us which obviously could even be better, but its pretty decent ?.

4.) 15 May 2024 08:40:55
Poor to say Cantwell was diving about. He got smashed four times in the first half, not a dive at any point. Maybe watch the game back and you’ll see that.

5.) 15 May 2024 08:41:51
Spot on SWS.
Sylla went through the back of him at least 3 times in that first half.

6.) 15 May 2024 08:46:34
Cantwell got kicked about the 1st half he wasn’t giving how many times was he fouled?

7.) 15 May 2024 09:39:12
Im sorry but some folk are talking rubbish. Cantwell was battered every time he touched the ball in the first half. It was clearly Dundees tactics.

Second half Cantwell had more time and space and delivered.

I'd like to keep him for next year for sure, he clearly has talent and i bet he will thrive with some new blood in the squad after the summer and more time under Clement. Its not easy being the main man most games especially surrounded by this squad (that we all moan about) .

Cantwell MoM for me.

Dessers could/ should of had a hat trick and possibly 2 penalties awarded as well lol.

Silva was rotten most the game. £35m and can't play against Dundee LOL.

{Ed001's Note - if he was that good, being battered would not be a problem. He just isn't that good.}

Any position other than right wing. He’s wasted being played in that position.

Balogun has barely put a foot wrong, has terrific timing in his tackles and is probably the fastest centre back we have at the club! And he’d play for us for peanuts!

I’ll tell you where the money could have came from, champions league revenue! But we blew it, and it was in our hands. So there’s no magic wand! And who are we to expect someone to come in and give us tens of millions just to win the league, who in their right mind would do that? We have to be more clever with our recruitment (pick up promising youngsters from abroad like we did with Morelos) and also make top money for players who we sell I. e. bassey and Patterson. It can be done, ange done it at Celtic and they were further behind us at that point than we are behind them now.

For me it wasn’t a goal and wasn’t a penalty either. Those were the two big calls and they were called correctly. Whether some foul wasn’t given or a booking didn’t deserve one was irrelevant, they didn’t cost us in terms of a goal or a sending off. Bearing in mind it wasn’t the ref who called the push it was VAR and when you see it back it was a clear push, if it were us we’d be screaming for it to be disallowed. I think we all just need to stop looking at the ref and get our big boy pants and admit that the reason we lost the league and the cup is because we failed to beat celtic all season, end of story.
