And that’s why Dessers will just never be good enough. The guy can not… in fact WILL NOT, hit a first time shot. It’s completely baffling how a forward just can not shoot. Could easily of had a hatrick today if he would just shoot! ?. It’s so frustrating to watch.


1.) 05 May 2024 15:55:44
Hes very poor but at the moment he's really all we've got he won't be our main striker next year hopefully not a bench warmer either.

2.) 05 May 2024 16:49:57
Scored against Hibs with a 1st time shot and one other chipped goal and that’s just off the top of my head so your post is bs.

3.) 05 May 2024 16:51:21
King? He was poor today but scored winner against st Mirren and scored the 2 goals that got us to a cup final that’s 3 goals in 3 games.

4.) 05 May 2024 19:49:42
Some are never happy Storm, big guy will be here next year, name a striker that scores every game? You can't, Spot on Storm utter BS.

5.) 05 May 2024 20:22:08
Storm seriously stop being an a**e. If you seriously think that Dessers is the quality of striker we need going forward then god help us. I will not fault him for his effort however he unfortunately lacks in most other areas. And yes he actually scored against Hibs and St Mirren with first time finishes but both were with his head from a few yards out where he couldn’t miss. However you can easily count at least a couple of chances a game where he loses out by trying to take far too many unnecessary touches before trying to shoot. A striker who won't or can’t hit a first time shot just isn’t good enough for us. I know Roofe is by far not the answer but just looking at today he would of scored a couple at least.

Gers78!! has written an article entitled, Rangers Squad Rebuild For Next Season


1.) 29 Apr 2024 16:52:26
Pretty much spot on Gers78, I'd keep Lawrence, he can still offer something imo, Raskin, I thought done well initially when played with Cantwell, you may be correct in that a full pre-season may help. Balogun for another year as cover. Gd read bud?.

2.) 29 Apr 2024 16:59:22
Good post 78. We may need three goalies.

3.) 29 Apr 2024 17:57:44
Was hoping there might be someone within the B team set up that is ready to be third choice keeper John, but not sure if that’s the case.

4.) 29 Apr 2024 19:08:28
Nicely summarised 78, i’d agree with pretty much all of that??.

5.) 29 Apr 2024 19:27:06
John is that you teasing that Butland is leaving?

6.) 29 Apr 2024 20:32:08
Storm no, plenty says he will go, I hope not, the thread talks McLaughlin and Mccrorie will go

Ger 78, wright was third choice for Europe this season but is behind McLaughlin now for domestic games.

Mb McLaughlin stays if mccrorIe goes

78, imo none of the reserves have any experience above say Alloa Stranraer, but that was same re wright.

7.) 29 Apr 2024 20:54:48
Good post and hard to argue but with such a big rebuild we may need to keep some players like Lawrence because we need to use money in other areas I'd certainly sell hagi lammers goldson Wright and not offer deals to any if the ooc players I'd keep tav unless a bid over 5m is made and would look for at least 10m if butland is to. leave so potentially with sales you could generate over 20/ 25m and save over 100k a week on wages so daunting but not impossible.

8.) 30 Apr 2024 07:57:27
If butland goes to the euros then min 15m.
I know he is 31 but we should play hardball. Celtic would get top dollar if it were them.

9.) 30 Apr 2024 08:52:38
We certainly won't turn down 15 million for him.

10.) 30 Apr 2024 09:15:43
Lawrence has been awful wouldn’t have him near my team he looks broken.

11.) 30 apr 2024 12:54:16
lets nit start with the “ not a penny less “, kent, morelos spring to mind.



22 Apr 2024 17:49:21
Fair play to Dessers for his two goals yesterday. Can’t fault the guy for the effort he always puts in as well. However unfortunately, he’ll just never be good enough to be our main striking option going forward. 19 goals in 38 is a decent return but if you look back on all his games one major thing sticks out. He can not hit a ‘first time finish’. Almost every shot he takes he needs 3 or 4 touches first to set himself.

This results in either: him being tackled, defenders getting back and blocking his shot, or on occasions goals like his first on Sunday, which looked really good as he ‘beat’ 3 men before shooting. Proper strikers can hit first time finishes or at most one touch then shoot. How many times do we see him balloon first time efforts over or well wide.

He just can’t finish with out taking an age to get a shot off. Even both yesterday’s goals were a bit fortunate. The first went through Gordon’s legs, the second seemed to go through him completely some how. On another day both of those are saved. We are desperately Needing someone who can instinctively finish without taking an age to think about it.


1.) 23 Apr 2024 10:16:39
Dessers or alfie.

2.) 23 Apr 2024 12:43:03
Christen - A morph of the pair please - Dessers workrate and attitude and Alfies finishing (in his prime) - I will phone PC and see if he can oblige with this mash-up?.

3.) 23 apr 2024 17:38:43
think i would much rather have dessers finishing to be honest mate, in fact anyone's finishing.



06 Apr 2024 10:21:51
So the official Rangers facebook page just dropped an interview with Butland regarding the Old Firm game about 15mins ago. Doubt they would do that if they knew he was injured and wouldn’t be playing so hopefully it is just nonsense.


1.) 06 Apr 2024 10:43:57
There's nothing on the other main forums such as Follow Follow or Rangers media. If there was any truth in it, it would be all over those 2, but there's nada!

2.) 06 Apr 2024 12:16:49
It was just some wee attention seeking fanny on twitter posting bs.

3.) 06 Apr 2024 12:21:36
Wishful Declan thinking ??.

4.) 06 Apr 2024 13:11:04
Same as the rumours flying around ccv is out, all b. s.

5.) 06 Apr 2024 16:10:41
It was Twitter bs again I don’t know why people believe that rubbish I’ll never know.

6.) 06 Apr 2024 17:09:49
I never bother looking at those sites. complete and utter rubbish.

Unfortunately, I’m not sure those figures are correct, don’t think Utrecht could afford that. Their record signing ever cost 4.8m euros and that was 13 years ago. They don’t have the budget for those kind of figures. Maybe that’s the figure we are wanting but if that’s the case it probably won’t be Utrecht he’ll go to.

Ricksen as a right back was actually pretty poor. He got absolutely slated in his first season, couldn’t defend at all and was rightly subbed after about 25mins of his first old firm as Bobby Petta was ripping him to pieces and he was very close to being sent off. Luckily we found a new pos For him as a central mid where he excelled and got voted player of the year.

As a right back Tav is light years ahead of him. Hutton was decent but for all he was thought of as an ‘attacking fullback’ in his days his numbers were minuscule compared to Tav. It’s always the same, folk have the habit of looking back on players of the past with partially selective memories. 100% a few years after Tav has left he’ll be thought of by most as a legend (and probably rightly so).

Because he brought in Silva for that position and obviously we were unable to obtain anyone else who would have been worth while spending money on. No point in bringing in ‘the wrong person’ just now rather than wait and get the right long term option in the summer. Everyone is talking about how we only have Dessers and Silva, well Celtic only really have Kyogo and the guy they’ve just brought in from Norwich, so same position really.

Here we go, folk jumping on the ‘our board are awful, shocking, sack the board’ guff already. So let’s look at things properly. Prior to the window (and with lots of injuries) under Clement and with the players we had we, win the league cup, cut the gap in the league and qualified for last 16 in Europe. This window we have brought in 3 creative / attacking players. Players that clearly the manager wanted, and we’ve managed to do so in very creative ways to get around spending much money in this window which won’t have been easy. The reason we’ve had to do this? NOT because the board don’t want spend, or ‘dip their hands into their own pockets (which actually, by the way, isn’t the way a board/ club should do things) but in fact due to FFP RULES. In any season clubs now have to prove they can break even financially and as we spent more than we brought in in the summer, in terms of tranfer dealings we are already in the red. Yes other revenue streams will help to balance that over the course of the season, but we can’t continue to over spend in this window and risk potential UEFA sanctions.
Look at Newcastle, on paper probably the richest club in the world due to Saudi backers, yet right now can’t buy anyone and in fact having to sell players so as not to get into trouble. People need to realise the way the business of football works before slating the club.

That should have obviously said McCrorie not McCoist (damn auto correct) . Mind you I’d love it if we still had a McCoist in our squad!

McCrorie has to be sold this summer, end of. We bring Kelly back on a free and make money off of McCrorie (no matter how much it will be a profit). McCoist out of contract next summer, we can not let another player leave for free, especially one that’s not going to play. We have to stop talking about ‘keeping players just for the sake of it’ and realise we need to become a selling club with a proper player trading model. No more letting 5 or 6 players walk away for free each year.

In his interview Clarke said Jack had been fit and available for 2 weeks. Seeing as that would of just been the Hearts and Kilmarnock game (and maybe the Celtic game at a push) and seeing as he hadn’t played for months won’t be match fit and won’t be here next season then it’s no real surprise he hasn’t been selected, whether he was ‘technically fit’ or not.
And if it is potentially the case that some players have ‘downed tools’ after finding out they weren’t to be offered new contracts or weren't in the plans going forward then very much good riddance! These are guys that have been getting paid an absolute fortune and for some of them that was to sit in the stands whilst injured for the majority of the time. If they really have spat the dummy in the last few months when we had a very good chance to win the league then please do leave as quick as you can.
My guess is though the manager just doesn’t want to play players who aren’t match fit/ ready and are just about to leave.

Livi, we definitely want Leverkusen to win no matter what, that would take Benfica out of CL qualification and make us seeded instead.

Cool John, didn’t know there was that in the deal. That’s something then at least. Still might be better if Leeds make it up though.
