Very unlucky troops, thought Balagoun was great, Dio best game, a wee bit more composure and it's our cup, very soft VAR call looks hundred times worse in slo mo and happens all over the country in every game.


1.) 25 May 2024 18:05:02
I’d give Balogun a year extension as a 4th choice CB all day. Low wages, experience and one of the few that gets what it means.

2.) 25 May 2024 18:09:11
Coopers var is correct. It’s a foul all day. But why foul in opposing area.

3.) 25 May 2024 18:15:23
Raskin also had a very good game but tired in latter stages.

4.) 25 May 2024 18:36:20
Yeah, I agree Cooperdad. I didn’t feel we were troubled much all game but as soon as it ticked onto the 90th minute I was worried those jammy bar stewards would nick a goal. I thought Raskin looked tired towards the end.

5.) 25 May 2024 18:36:39
Thought it was a very even match. They looked the more dangerous in the first half, we looked more dangerous in the second - without either creating much.

Big mistake at the worst possible time cost us.

VAR call was correct and one we'd have been screaming for.

6.) 25 May 2024 18:40:12
Truth is we're not good enough again. Fact is Rodgers has done better than clemment since they both came in.

7.) 25 May 2024 18:42:42
Unlucky doesn't cut it for me consistent failure when it matters better sums it up.

8.) 25 May 2024 19:58:11
Both CH done well, balogun for me stays all day.



24 May 2024 13:41:05
With the team looking to be hampered with injuries once again and a cloning machine not available to duplicate Stirling multiple times over then a change of system must be a possibility, Troops might not like it but Lundstrum will come into the conversation and I would play him only if we start with an extra midfielder in the middle, we being overran with three without Stirling involved and let's be honest he has more dig than others and with four in middle be harder for players to run off us, making it a fight then winning turnovers could be our best chance.


1.) 24 May 2024 13:51:33
I honestly don't think it matters what 11 we play we will lose imo.

2.) 24 May 2024 14:12:10
Cammy - you're a right ray of sunshine aren't you?

3.) 24 May 2024 14:14:48
play a strict 4-4-2 or 4-1-4-1.

and have someone like lunny or Jack (if fit enough) to follow McGregor about the whole time.

4.) 24 May 2024 14:37:10
Did you not see the press conference of our captain yesterday Athole? Writing is on the wall by that press conference alone.

5.) 24 May 2024 15:13:46
To be fair tavernier doesn’t look very confident, not the pre cup final press conference you’d expect from your captain.

6.) 24 May 2024 15:54:43
Nothing the captain can say that’s going to be good to be fair, he knows the script for tomorrow, do the talking on the park it’s the only thing the fans will except, a hope everyone that crosses the white line has got this attitude and we might just get there, a said before it’s not Man City we are playing far from it.

7.) 24 May 2024 16:16:47
Tav looks worn out.



12 May 2024 14:15:25
A think our chances of winning the Scottish cup lean on Sima being fit, having him on the right wing and allowing Stirling in midfield is a must, for all our failings their defence have been let off the hook and targeting their full backs and the back post will give us a chance in final, the bit of fight showed with ten men on Saturday will be needed as well.


1.) 12 May 2024 14:32:46
Think the only way that happens is if Lundstram is not in the team.
We will see if he makes any tactical changes last couple of league games.
Sterling least effective out on the right, but whoever it is on the right has to offer Tav protection.

2.) 12 May 2024 15:00:40
We all know that Tav will score the winner with a belter of a free kick in the cup final to shut all his haters up for the 100th time again.

3.) 12 may 2024 15:01:50
the bit of fight they showed when lundstrum let them all down, your right mate, they did show something, but the manager must have a better plan,

4.) 12 May 2024 15:12:57
Do you trust PC not to just bench Sterling? Rather than what everyone knows we need that being him put into Rb or CM.

5.) 12 May 2024 15:20:15
Lundstrum shouldn't play for the club again.

6.) 12 May 2024 15:31:27
Clement needs to get his transfer business right this summer or he will be the latest in a growing list of failed managers. The problem is that to be successful he needs to pretty much remove two thirds of those currently in the squad and replace them with a better quality of player.
I'm not sure that this is doable.
How long before he decides to walk to protect his reputation before it is destroyed if he isn't given the financial support needed to secure the quality of player needed.

7.) 12 may 2024 15:50:39
might well do stevie

still one of the worst right backs I've ever seen in 60 odd years of following rangers, i honestly can't describe how poor he is, he is totally lost when facing the opposition, and il tell you something else

before tavernier started taking every single dead ball we would occasionall treated to a borna screamer, when was the last time borna was allowed to hoit a free kick? tavernier takes over everything, no matter where it is, its pathetic sometimes, we have 2 full backs standing over the ball, both out of position, and the world and his dog knows whos hitting it, , we had the occassional worldy v st mirren. and the awful defending v celtic

i want a decent right back.

8.) 12 May 2024 17:29:39
The occasional worldy v st mirren? What about Europe and Celtic goals? Change the record

9.) 12 May 2024 18:09:16
He’s the highest scoring FB in British football so I give him credit. He’s not a defensive FB for that I give him pelters. Been here 9 years, would rather have Sterling and my forward take my penalty. I have wanted him gone since we won 55.

10.) 12 May 2024 19:32:14
He is a serial loser and needs to go.

11.) 12 May 2024 19:32:29
Matt O'Reilly cost Celtic £1.5m and so it can be done. Mind-you, they went out and spent an average of £1.5m each on a bunch of duds last summer and so it goes wrong more often than it goes right.



11 May 2024 16:12:26
The sending off took any chance we had of taking anything, saying that we let them dictate play and only a matter of time for them to score the first, thought Silva played well and ran them ragged but we need to take chances to win these games, fair play too them keeping score down in second half and almost equalising although would not alter where title is going.


1.) 11 may 2024 16:27:11
i find the tackle he made to be very very suspicious myself.

2.) 11 May 2024 16:36:59
Thank you TT1212.

3.) 11 may 2024 16:42:47
its quite a jump to believe he didn't know, mid tackle that as soon as he lifts his boot he's going off

quite a jump, he knew exactly what he was doing, he had about 20 yards to think about it.

4.) 11 May 2024 16:45:35
Lundstram sold the jerseys in more ways than one - again can't mark O'Riley or McGregor when it really matters - schoolboy stuff?.

5.) 11 May 2024 16:48:08
I don't understand that lunge TT.
It looked to me like I'm out of here type of tackle. He is a professional footballer, launch yourself at that speed, looking for trouble. It didn't even look like he attempted to pull out which may have saved him, hmmm.

6.) 11 May 2024 16:50:17
Not sure he’ll play again, give Raskin the last 3 games to show us what he can produce.

7.) 11 May 2024 16:52:21
A horrendous tackle and probably out of the frustration of his own goal. He should never play another game for us, one player that I won't be unhappy to see go.

8.) 11 May 2024 16:57:18
He has done lunges like that before anyone who thinks he meant to get sent off are of their heads.

9.) 11 may 2024 17:08:37
i believe he knew he was going to be sent off before he lunged in, only a foll wouldn't know, he lifted his foot knowing that was what var would investigate and there would only be one outcome.

if your naive enough to believe footballers don't ever get themselves a red, for whatever reason, youyr the one whos off they're head

we have 2 things here then

we either have a guy wno knew he would go off
or an experienced player who ran a distance to make such a tackle that could only ever be a red card, and didn't think, given the distance he ran, the area, the lifting of his boot, i know what i think.

10.) 11 May 2024 17:09:36
I think he’s meant to make a very aggressive challenge and stamp his authority on the game. I have no concerns with that and wish more people wearing our jersey would do the same.

That said, that tackle was awful and a red every day of the week and twice with Collum refereeing.

If he was 19 I could forgive him but he’s a senior professional who has had the utter p*** taken out of him old firm after old firm.

We will be a better team next season without him, Tav and BB.

11.) 11 May 2024 17:13:45
Once again the own goal poor. Where the f was the rb again.

12.) 11 may 2024 17:13:58
im not saying he definitely did i'm saying i personally found it a ridiculous tackle that was a certain red card.

13.) 11 May 2024 17:24:18
he ran 10 yards to make that tackle . no spur of the moment stuff . he could have ended that boys career . and anyone who disagrees is also off their nut. knew what the outcome was going to be all day long.

14.) 11 May 2024 17:26:31
and anyone who thinks he ran for 10 yards at full speed not knowing the end outcome is also off their heads.

15.) 11 May 2024 17:32:36
It was 2.0 going on 5 -0 when he got sent off. . His crystal ball told him to keep his legs nice and shiny for the last big career move. mission accomplished lunny

16.) 11 May 2024 17:41:35
Crazy challenge at a time when we had just got back in game and half time coming, even if the tackle was clean you are not retrieving possession at that speed so no point, if he wanted to leave something on someone he should have clattered O Reilly not the right back who was getting skinned by Silva constantly, schoolboy stuff.

17.) 11 May 2024 18:00:38
It was a terrible challenge, only he knows what he intended, nowout of both league games I reckon, I would play raskin in final, and have rice or McKinnon on the bench

We know lundstrum wants out after we withdrew his offfer.

18.) 11 May 2024 18:39:51
We were 3 men down before we kicked off. Lundstrum letting men drift away from him, out of position and giving away the ball cheaply, Lawrence not picking men or runners up, Barasic he just doesn’t seem interested. Butland was outstanding, Sterling, Souttar Silva and Diomande were our best outfielders. Unless injured I didn’t understand him being replaced.

19.) 11 May 2024 18:40:57
Deecee, it was 2-1 when he went off.

20.) 11 May 2024 22:05:15
100% Lundstram knew the consequences of that challenge. It was a terrible challenge in an area of the park and with opponent having zero influence on the touch. An absolute disgraceful challenge and one he had plenty of opportunities to make earlier in game but chose not to. Should be his last appearance in our jersey.



03 May 2024 15:45:24
Happy to hear Ridvan is close for Sunday mainly because he should play next week which will be huge for us, this Sunday will not be easy but if we take our chances we will take 3 points, something got to happen to boost the confidence of players and fans to kick us on for silverware as I think both are a bit flat at moment.


1.) 03 May 2024 16:11:50
Yilmaz missing has had a big impact on our left side.

2.) 03 May 2024 18:21:05
Coopers, I think Ridvan may make cup final if wer lucky.

3.) 03 May 2024 18:23:08
Hugely missed coop.

4.) 03 May 2024 20:09:45
Don’t ruin my weekend John, am grasping at straws here lol.

5.) 03 May 2024 22:04:49
When he came bac from Turkey he was to miss two games. Six weeks later we await him making a squad.

6.) 04 May 2024 06:33:28
I think that coinciding with the Cortes injury has hurt us big time my star.

7.) 04 May 2024 06:49:04
Aye. Exactly. WTF is going with our recovery timescales?

8.) 04 May 2024 08:41:30
Flb ? agree, the Cortes then Ridvan injuries have really effected the team, we looked really threatening when we had them both, we had a dimension on the left I haven’t seen for ages really. When Cortes got injured at rugby park I had a bad feeling, but thought well at least with Ridvan there we still have something on the left. Then injury while playing for Turkey, then Sima came back but only to get injured again.

I’m getting a bit sick of Ridvan Yilmaz good player definitely but he’s been here 2 years and he’s proven to be injury prone. Plays in little periods then injured. There is no way anyone can say he’s going to be our starting LB he’s not reliable enough- we have to buy someone else, someone reliable. It’s annoying because I really like the way Ridvan plays.

PC said yesterday tho that they are in talks with Lens about keeping Cortes. But because of the injury they want that to be taken into account- I’m paraphrasing but something along those lines. I definitely think he’ll be here next season. Almost sure although anything can happen. Even his IG account says he’s a Rangers player doesn’t say he’s a Lens player on loan to Rangers like what Sima’s got on his, his still says he’s a Brighton player on loan to Rangers- that doesn’t mean much but it tells me he’s happy here and proud to wear our badge. He’s only 20 with loads of potential and really fits our transfer policy of buying young and selling. So barring any hardball play by Lens then I’d bet my house on him being here next year. Maybe change it to another loan but this time with a obligation to buy, I don’t know but I like seeing young talented players with potential being at our club, these are just my thoughts.

9.) 04 May 2024 10:41:16
It’s weird to think back in the day a 15 man squad could play the full season and only a broken leg kept u out for a while, bit of deep heat and on you go lol, obviously had the same injuries back in the day just shows you when you need the wage packet at end of week you declared yourself half fit, how many injections etc must of impacted on players bodies that are hobbling about today.

Comfortable on ball and can travel with it, looks built as well don’t think anyone going to bully him, between him and the new left back a lot speed on that side of defence, hopefully turn out great signings.

If Sima wants to come to us he can go along way to make it happen especially with a year left, Brighton will not want to pay wages for a year then lose for nothing, if he is up to coming to us we could get him on the cheap, might drag on tho.

You pay yer money you do what you want, some have to leave early for ferries, used to get a lift from the Arran bus years ago and the bus would not wait, a couple of mins can save over an hour with traffic sometimes, it’s easy for me I leave at final whistle and still about first on bus as I am seated in west enclosure.
