We were playing a good team last night, got to remember that - and we are still in the tie.

For me we looked very vulnerable when they pressed us at the back, we didn’t have a plan B to get out of it and I felt sorry for Sands and Barasic sometimes as had no options. Obviously we have an issues on cross balls/ corners also.

I thought Davis was excellent in the first half, and Colak and Barasic had good games. Our first goal was excellent.

For me playing Kent, Lawrence and Tillman together didn’t work, we were missing someone on the right.

I was hoping Gio would have changed sooner, probably Matondo on for Lawrence and I think there’s a shout for Colak and Alfredo to play together.


1.) 17 Aug 2022 14:17:14
GVB has already said he does not play 2 strikers together.

2.) 17 Aug 2022 14:44:27
I thought the pressure of winning got to the players last night, hence many didn’t play as well as they can. I think they can improve on this - treat next week as a cup final and see where that takes us….



12 Jul 2022 14:53:29
With the new arrival today, what does everyone think of transfer activity to complete before the end of the window? (Assuming Kent and Morelos sign new deals) .

I still think we need a centre half, whilst I like Helander he hardly played last season, Balogan has gone and Katic and Simpson I doubt are good enough to feature. If we can offload them we should bring in one to challenge for first team. Bassey can also support but would like to see him at LB.

Would like to see a goalkeeper brought in for the future but not vital in this window.

Striker is probably the other position for me, sell Roofe if the rumours are true about his attitude and bring a young striker in.


1.) 12 Jul 2022 15:22:30
Agree with most of that bee good post only thing I'd ask is surely Katic is worth a shot as a backup I can't really see why he gets as much stick I still see a player in him. I'd bring in a striker anyway if we need to get to the champions league we may need to get there without buff and roofe a lot to ask of colak and if the worst happens and he gets injured we're back to false 9 again.

2.) 12 Jul 2022 15:26:11
I see bassey as a better cb than lb
I know controversial but I just see his left foot and his pace and recovery as a real attribute of the modern centre half.
If wee keel bb ar left bacn and sign a back up or promote from within as reserve then bassey could save us signing a centre back and be goldsons first choice partner.
That would be my plan but I know most don’t agree.

3.) 12 Jul 2022 15:34:39
Agree Katic should get a chance to prove himself, hopefully he’ll improve under the new management. The boy Tillman looks a class act, if we can get a hold of him from Bayern on a loan to buy I think the squad would be the best it’s looked for years!

4.) 12 Jul 2022 15:50:22
I agree Stevie, I think Bassey is better at centre half. He got man of the match in the final.

5.) 12 Jul 2022 16:11:25
What are the Roofe rumours?

6.) 12 Jul 2022 16:11:43
Bassey is better at lb his foward runs and crossing is really good it’s his preferred position.

7.) 12 Jul 2022 16:14:03
He just seems Colossal in the middle for us, he’s such a good player.

8.) 12 Jul 2022 16:18:00
Bassey has actually stated he doesn’t have a preference where he plays as long as he’s on the pitch. When he signed we were also told he can play centre mid.
Good stuff dado. A lot don’t see it pace and a good left foot doesn’t mean automatically a wide player modern centre backs with pace to recover especially left footed ones are hard to come by and he could be the real deal in there. There’s full backs popping up everywhere nowadays I just feel his attributes in a centre half would make him a better player and us more money.

9.) 12 Jul 2022 16:27:47
Bassey is never a centre half never will be.

10.) 12 Jul 2022 16:42:55
Pretty much agree with what has been said. I would love to see us offload both Roofe and Helander, both spend more time on the treatment table than the pitch. While I would love to see Katie do well I have my doubts. We have to get rid of Simpson and a couple of others including Middleton and I suspect that we will sign another striker and possible a midfield player. Personally I would love to see us sign a quality goalkeeper. I fear that McGregor has reached the end of the road and I just don't rate McLaughlin as a first eleven player.

11.) 12 Jul 2022 17:27:28
Boo are you at the wind up? Did you actually watch him in Europe?

12.) 12 jul 2022 17:29:55
he is when he’s playing there.

13.) 12 Jul 2022 17:34:35
I think we still need another striker as well. Looks to me that gio wants two players capable of each position, and with Alfie still recovering and roofe, who knows what?, we are light there. We wait and see!

14.) 12 Jul 2022 17:36:27
Man of the match in a European final and isn’t a centre half and never will be…. Jesus Christ where do we find some of these people.

15.) 12 Jul 2022 17:55:00
Better at left back is Bassey for me and katic is just not good enough for us and never will be needs moved on asap.

16.) 12 Jul 2022 17:57:58
Like a few folk here, I really like Bassey at CB. I think finding a decent LB is far easier than finding a strong, fast left footed CB. I also think King is going to get a fair bit of game time this season - really excited to see how he develops.

17.) 12 Jul 2022 17:58:42
Boo 123

Sorry but I totally disagree, bassey in my opinion was our best defender last year and I believe his best performances came when he was at centre half, not to sure getting man of the match in a European final will help your claim but it's your opinion and entitled to it but I'm not sure many other fans will agree.

18.) 12 Jul 2022 20:09:05
Prefer bassey at lb.

19.) 12 Jul 2022 21:57:19
I like Katic but if Helander is out then I wouldn’t want to rely on him as a first choice. He’s not a young guy anymore but I would like to see him do well tbh.

On Bassey I think he can cover both positions but for me personally I think he’s better at left back., can use his speed and also his defensive side.

Left sided centre CBs are hard to come by however.



07 Jun 2022 16:29:21
Potentially could be a lot of changes this year with Gios first pre season. Have noted down my thoughts.

Players not needed:
-Firth and Balogun (already gone)
-Simpson, Hastie, Middleton and Katic don't look like they will have futures (Maybe get £2-£3m for them combined? )

We need to get Morelos signed up on a new contract as a priority. Kent and Aribo are worth new deals or need to sell rather than run their contracts down.

Then i think we need to add some quality to the first team with a LCB to compete with/ cover for Helander.

Move Bassey to LB and bring in cover and replace Barasic.

A right sided winger to be a starter and a new striker. (and replace Kent and Aribo if don't sign new deals with the funds raised but hopefully we can keep at least one) .

Whats everyones thoughts?

If we do need to sell to raise funds then probably Kamara and Aribo for me.


1.) 07 Jun 2022 17:42:26
I pretty much agree with that with the exception of,

Adding a new starting GK.

Defence - Keep the following,


After that I completely agree, definitely a RW and Striker needs to be starting signings.

I will get shot to pieces now but I personally wouldn’t mind Ramsey to re-sign. After a full pre season he could be pretty class for a couple of years.

To contradict what I’ve also said as I believe our midfield is good I would love (massive long shot I know) xavi Simmonds to sign, even if he signed for PSG, maybe take him on loan for a year.

All only my opinions.

2.) 07 Jun 2022 18:11:23
Agree with Ramsey if could get a pay per play type deal. Talk of both him and bale going to Cardiff however.
I loved Barasic but he had a poor season last season, for me Bassey should be starting LB which means we need to bring in someone for Helander cover.

For the goalkeeper I think we need someone to be our long term first choice, if we have limited funds this season I’m ok with McLaughlin however. He’s good with the ball and fairly safe. Just doesn’t have the McGregor worldie save in him I think.

3.) 07 Jun 2022 19:15:16
American media reporting it will cost us 4.5 million keep sands beyond this season.

4.) 07 Jun 2022 19:33:41
I feel like I am in the majority but out the above points, I am loving Bassey at centre half.

5.) 07 Jun 2022 20:20:20
I'm with you Snell, I would keep Bassey at LCB and get a new LB in. I think it will be much harder to get a quality left sided CB in rather than a starting or backups left back. Not to mention cheaper!

6.) 07 Jun 2022 21:24:12
Bassey better at left back for me q.

7.) 08 Jun 2022 00:07:14
I prefer bassey at centre back his pace and fact he’s left footed really works well especially in Europe.
I do see us playing back 3 next season a lot aswell if we’re lucky enough to keep bassey one more season he’s left centre back all day.

8.) 08 Jun 2022 00:17:50
I would add a quality keeper to the list of acquisitions; I wouldn't be surprised if Helander goes and we bring in another centre back as a replacement.

One thing is for sure we need to sign three or four quality players and we need them signed early on in the transfer window.

I can definitely see Aribo being sold and equally I suspect that we will sign players that have not been linked with us since the Media don't have a clue what we are planning!



19 May 2022 00:30:24
Gutted we lost, but on the night we didn't deserve to win.

A lot of our players didn't turn up, and I thought the crowd was very quiet compared to the Germans.

Bassey was amazing, had a fantastic game.

Achievement to get there, just a step too far unfortunately.

I thought Ramsey and Roofe should have been introduced earlier but Gio has called it right in every other game so hard to criticise.


1.) 19 May 2022 01:27:42
Only one error, Ramsey should not have been allowed to take a penalty, he looked like he would miss long before he touched the ball, and his attempt was truly awful
But apart from getting tired those boys fought til they dropped and were more than a match for the Germans, they suffered in the heat and playing with no striker,

I’m proud of them.

2.) 19 May 2022 02:48:08
Yes I pretty much agree!

3.) 19 May 2022 05:24:20
We were up against a very underrated side and maybe the supporters went into the match with optimism based on what we can do in the cauldron of noise and atmosphere that is Ibrox. That seemed to be missing last night as EF spoiled the party for large spells. We have been punching well above our weight since Alashkart and should be immensely proud of everything we have achieved. We have to pick ourselves up and put a smile on the face of every man, woman and child who had their heartbroken last night. I know it is difficult not to dwell on what might have been but I honestly believe we have the opportunity to make this a regular occurrence, if the fans back the team rather than dwell on the what might have been. We can still match them this season in the CL but will have to work that wee bit harder but we are Rangers and that’s what we do!

4.) 19 May 2022 06:09:32
Goldson not clearing his lines was another mistake but he played his part on getting us there and I agree about Ramsey should never make subs just for pens.

5.) 19 May 2022 07:33:15
Heartbroken and disappointed we didn't win the europa league final last night but at the same time very proud of all our rangers squad and management team in getting us there and all those great european nights getting to the final We move on and let's get our heads up and finish the season by winning the scottish cup on saturday Proud to be a ranger .

6.) 19 May 2022 07:57:47
I thought we started off very nervously and never got going. One defender out of four performing doesn't help either. Have said it before, our team looks good when we move it at speed, and we didn't do that all night. EF looked sharper all over the park, they were well organised. A great journey we've been on, might be the last long journey for some of our team, but come on Rangers we can do it on Saturday ! WATP.



17 May 2022 12:20:32
So what's the team prediction for tomorrow then (assuming Roofe doesn't start)?

I'm going:
Tav, Goldson, Bassey, Barasic
Jack, Lundstrum
Sakala, Aribo, Kent.


1.) 17 May 2022 13:05:38
Ramsey won't start. don't think anybody will who started v hearts.

2.) 17 May 2022 13:11:31
Same team that started v RBL if Roofe is not fit.

3.) 17 May 2022 13:12:04
For me if Roofe is even 50% fit then I'd play him and run himself into the ground for the 1st half hope to be ahead then take him off.

Tav Goldson Bassy Barasic
Jack Lundstrum Kamara
Aribo Roofe Kent.

4.) 17 May 2022 15:06:22
Wouldn’t start anyone at 50%fit in a game like this.

5.) 17 May 2022 17:13:35
Roofe, run himself into the ground? That would be different .

6.) 17 May 2022 17:40:56
We can’t start anyone that’s 50% fit that would be pointless and ludicrous.

7.) 17 May 2022 18:55:05
I agree with stormtrooper if it ain't broken no need to fix it and roofe would be on the bench for me .

8.) 17 May 2022 19:25:59
Bas72,would look okay, with manser slating tho, lol.

Thanks for the info.
Barron is definitely worth a punt, young and Scottish and potential to be a great signing.

Is that over and above any sales John?
We will need a decent budget to replace the outgoings, some of which are on a free with no fee.
But probably more than I expected.

I think he would be a good signing but be surprised if we would pay the £6m to £8m quoted.
Be surprised if anyone would pay that though for an Aberdeen player.

Do you think the Brazilian left back (Jefte was it? ) will sign? The one we had an agreement with in Jan.

I like the castore kits to be honest. Designs have been good and I personally haven’t had any issues with the quality.

I do like adidas as a brand, but I think Nike are making better kits in both design and quality just now.

For me the proof will be how we start next season.
Beale actually improved us last season but his start to the current season was terrible and I don’t think we invested wisely in the new signings.

We need to invest in younger talented hungry players (both Scottish and abroad) .

Hopefully the combination of the new manager and new recruitment team will be successful!

I didn’t think Davie’s had a bad game to be honest.
We went playing well and didn’t deserve to win the game even before Lundstrum got sent off and that certainly didn't help things.

Big rebuild needed, but has been needed for a few years.

For me I think we need a solid midfield. Going 3 in the middle, with silva and cantwell supporting dessers when going forward, but have the legs to press also.


Souttar / Balogan



Lawrence to come on in 2nd half to make an impact hopefully.
