Everyone speculating on here, who the new striker is going to be, some expecting us to spend millions. I was wondering myself just as much as the rest but having thought about it, I think it is likely to be a loan signing perhaps once the EPL is ended. Disappointing I know, we all want a top player.

but with c.v. going on and Morelos going nowhere (nobody wants him because of his moods, discipline, and effectively downing tools since Xmas), Defoe still on the books although injured, a loan signing (decent quality) makes more sense. This will only change if/ once El Buffalo starts to perform at his best again and other clubs start to take notice. Good news is I think we will benefit from this, until an offer comes in for him and heโ€™s off. Just my thoughts guys.


1.) 25 Jul 2020 15:20:14
I'm struggling to think of a good quality EPL player that will come to us. Most of the top drawer players will be retained by their current clubs, especially with the 5 sub rule in play. Those that are available will choose to stay in the EPL if given the opportunity so best we can hope for, and even that is debatable, is someone that would choose us over someone like Derby County or Brentford! Otherwise we end up with more rubbish. We only have one fit striker at the Club. We need at least three so we are currently two down and if we don't sort it before the league starts, (with the risk of Morelos being injured or red carded), we could end up in trouble. Our squad is already lacking in quality if we are honest!


2.) 25 Jul 2020 15:32:04
There's plenty of players that will be/ are out of contract.
Am sure SG will strengthen further before the season starts.


3.) 25 Jul 2020 16:26:21
Thats a good point berkshire blue, that 5 sub rule could prove very interesting.


4.) 25 Jul 2020 17:31:19
bryce, I reckon that with five subs we will see more tactical play by managers. They will use more of their squad and they will be able to have a second striker, two midfield players and a defender on the bench along with a keeper. That effectively means that you need sixteen first team players minimum. We still have a bit of work to do to ensure that we have the right quality across the pitch.


5.) 25 Jul 2020 20:52:47
roofe on loan and dykes on purchase seems to be favorite.


6.) 26 Jul 2020 12:16:39
I'd go with that Eric Blair, plus a good strong holding midfield player although I wouldn't be surprised if the boy from Peterborough ends up with us.


 

 

18 Jun 2020 23:28:52
I see Gerrard strongly hinting at new signings coming in! Well I am happy to admit I may have got that one wrong, let's hope so ๐Ÿคญ Can't help thinking we must also be moving some out at the same time, we'll see.


1.) 19 Jun 2020 10:26:37
Hi Muppet,

I think that we forget how many players we actually have on the books and therefore how many we are letting go of that maybe fly under the radar.

Someone mentioned before the release of Pena and Herrera freeing up wages which is true. But there are more to consider.

Already left/ going - Foderingham, Alnwick, Flanagan, Halliday, Rossiter, Holt, Ojo, Kamberi.

So that's 8 spaces and 8 more wages (whether we paid some or all of these) before we let any more go. Having said that we most likely will let more go. Not because we are skint but it just makes sense and we need to make sense financially and for our future youth coming through.

I reckon we will still see 2 or 3 of the following go - Jones, Middleton, Murphy, Barker and Hastie.
Also things will come to a head this window or next for Barjonas and/ or Docherty.

This gives us at least 10 bodies out. Having only brought in 2 first team players.


2.) 19 Jun 2020 10:40:32
Of those mentioned as possibly going the only one I would like to see stay is Murphy since I still believe that he can do a job for us. I suspect that Middleton and Hastie will go back out on loan and being blunt, I don't think we would miss any of the others including Barjonas and Docherty. We do however need to bring in players of a significantly higher standard than those leaving.


3.) 19 Jun 2020 10:56:10
Get rid of Goldson and Kamara also. That will bring in some transfer funds.


4.) 19 Jun 2020 11:02:09
Ross Wilson ang SG are doing a lot of work behind the scenes. I am expecting a couple of blue chip signings. Hopefully, very soon.


5.) 19 Jun 2020 11:03:46
Hopefully we'll get Kamberi back on a permanent deal๐Ÿ‘.


6.) 19 Jun 2020 12:11:11
I agree get kamberi back in, good squad player.


7.) 19 Jun 2020 12:22:54
Keep jones docherty middleton latter 2 prob o out on loan

Sell or release murphy hastie barker goldson

Katic i think is our best cb
Get another top striker in
Kamberi would just be a squad player others would be put in front of him same as jones but still think there more to come from jones.


8.) 19 Jun 2020 12:31:05
INTR, I agree about Katic, imagine what he would be like if he had someone like Davie Weir to sort out his positioning.


9.) 19 Jun 2020 12:55:11
Katic will get better with experience. A no nonsense defender like Helander beside him help matters.


10.) 19 Jun 2020 14:50:55
Coldo have to disagree I hope kamberi doesnโ€™t come back he just isnโ€™t good enough.


11.) 19 Jun 2020 15:54:33
Kamberi could do a turn for us! he's not a first choice striker but wouldn't be a bad signing.


12.) 19 Jun 2020 18:51:43
Agreeing pretty much with all comments above. Iโ€™m still unsure about Jones, he played well for Ireland and is definitely a decent player, like to see him again this season injury free think he has something to give. Seems Gerrard was very confident about the signings and Iโ€™m sure he has a definite or two already lined up which makes me wonder if Tapia is coming. What you think?


13.) 19 Jun 2020 23:22:04
Kamberi would be an easy decision for me.

I'd also agree with the comment on how many players we have on books. We have about 8 central midfielders and only 1 or 2 are good / consistent enough and if truth be told even those two wouldn't make a real Rangers team.

We need to rid the deadwood and bring in quality.


14.) 20 Jun 2020 00:04:26
I agree. Get rid of the deadwood but some are happy to pick up wages until there contract runs out. We do not want to return to the position of paying players to leave.


15.) 20 Jun 2020 02:58:18
Not good enough? He was our best player.


16.) 20 Jun 2020 00:47:10
From what I hear from a friend SG isn't happy with wide options. Hastie and Middleton will head out on loan and if suitable deals barker Jones and Murphy will all be moved on. 2 new wide men will come in. If possible polster will move on if we get a suitable replacement cover RB. 1 GK will be brought in with mccrorie twins both heading back out on loans, GK one will be challenging for no1 season starting 2021
There could be first team players sold with morelos (SG wants to keep but some offers are too good to turn down) and tav possible exits. Toney from English league 1 will come in weather morelos stays or goes. Look for us to use the likes of Patterson, Kennedy, kelly and other youth players when needed as they are getting closer to first team.


 

 

17 Feb 2020 07:53:31
Supposing we win nothing this season which is by far the most likely scenario and heaps of transfer money is not made available from thin air to revamp the squad, next season why would gerrard remain to face more humiliation. surely from his point of view, getting out would be the sensible option before his reputation is in tatters. And where is the transfer money materialising from?


1.) 17 Feb 2020 09:13:51
Good point.


2.) 17 Feb 2020 09:42:20
if sg walks his reputation will be in tatters!


3.) 17 Feb 2020 09:54:11
Are we forgetting we played everyone off the park for first half of season Inc top European sides in porto etc. We have had a disaster over the last 4/ 5 weeks. If we click back into gear play well to end of season (probably still won't win the league granted) but from where we were when Gerrard came in then how can that be time for him to go. We've bridged what was a massive gap between us and them and other than a shocking couple of games we've been had a good season, we're still in the fight and there's still Scottish Cup to go for.
Yes, it's a missed opportunity in the league but only because we were put in the position of being so good in first half season.
Back the team and the manager.


4.) 17 Feb 2020 09:58:29
He helped build the humiliation you talk about.


5.) 17 Feb 2020 10:20:26
if he needs heaps of transfer money on top of what heโ€™s spent is that what we need.

how much do you actually need to put a team on the park to beat bottom of table hearts or a poor killie / dons anyway

without contradicting myself i do admit hagi looks very good and he would be an excellent addition to our team but will prob cost 4/ 5m.


6.) 17 Feb 2020 10:49:35
Being honest, I eouldnt pay 5m for haji on the evidence of what I've saw so far.


7.) 17 Feb 2020 14:06:25
Trev, livi spent about 8 pound on transfer fees, yet beat celtic 2/ 0 we need to keep buying players until we've got a good enought pool of player to challenge celtic, as its going to be hard winning the league with the small amount of first team players we have at this moment in time.


8.) 17 Feb 2020 14:20:24
Spot on Trev about the hearts / killie an dons recent games .

Be surprised if our own supporters don't give us gip for that comment
tho.


9.) 17 Feb 2020 15:07:41
Herewego55 Really? he has scored and got an assist in 3 matches and has still yet to fully settle into the squad. Time will tell but tbh i'd already say he is a better acquisition for 5m than Kent is for 7m.


10.) 17 Feb 2020 17:13:40
Exactly, but Kent's not exactly setting the heather on fire. Cracking player, imo not worth 5m if thsts ok?


11.) 18 Feb 2020 10:24:19
Trev, celtic have spent massively, they've earned at least 200 million in ch lge money, plus 20 mill in transfer fees while we've spent a pittance in comparison, and you and others expect gerrard to win league in a short space of time, phew I've heard it all now. the 25 million in transfer fees recouped by celtic was buttons compared to there ch league money, i think people should think for a few wee seconds before posting.


12.) 18 Feb 2020 15:19:04
Herewego55 we can't really say either way. if we do then its hardly giving the boy a chance. as i said time will tell he looks a cracking player and really 5m when you think of it isn't really that much money compared with the fees that we hear down south (i know were basically a farmers league in comparison)


13.) 18 Feb 2020 23:15:15
Kylel1872,i think if we bring in another 3players of his quality in the summer, we would definetly have a team good enough to win the league, that's the way we will build until we have a strong pool, and lots of current team will be squad players.


 

 

02 Sep 2019 09:22:48
Jones potentially out for some time with a knee injury, Middleton and Murphy on loan, Kent not returning, Candeais gone, Grezda not in the picture, that leaves us with only one winger Oh no! How are we going to break teams down like that?


1.) 02 Sep 2019 10:39:58
Barker, Arfield, Ojo - while hardly the depth of Barcelona it's a bit more than 'one winger'.


2.) 02 Sep 2019 10:52:34
Arfield is wasted trying to play anywhere other centrally.


3.) 02 Sep 2019 11:21:16
although I think arfield best position is more central, he can play right midfield. I can see another attempt at signing Kent today.


4.) 02 Sep 2019 11:46:14
Scotty Arfield ain't a winger rfcrb1872!Barker and ojo are wingers.


5.) 02 Sep 2019 11:50:50
Arfield is not a winger.


6.) 02 Sep 2019 11:54:56
apart from barker and ojo. u seem to be forgetting docherty. and murphy has not been loaned as yet (in fact neither has hastie as yet) might reconsider hastie if jones is long term.


7.) 02 Sep 2019 12:41:56
Yeah, he was shocking out wide during the split.


8.) 02 Sep 2019 12:44:40
barker is injured and untried, arfield isn't a winger. neither is ojo.


9.) 02 Sep 2019 12:57:37

11.) 02 Sep 2019 13:02:27
Kent signing today for ยฃ7M.


12.) 02 Sep 2019 13:03:18
I don't rate Ohno and Arfield is not a winger, fortunately Kent is on his way!


13.) 02 Sep 2019 13:12:20
I think it looks like Kent is coming now! Permanent deal almost agreed. Maybe the boards hands been forced following that performance yesterday and Jones getting himself injured!


14.) 02 Sep 2019 13:13:17
Kent should be over the line today 7mil.


15.) 02 Sep 2019 13:28:36
Sky now reporting we have agreed 7million with Liverpool for Kent.


16.) 02 Sep 2019 14:52:37
Kent is returning my friend! 7 mil offer accepted.


 

 

01 Aug 2019 21:10:13
Here's a thought. Rangers knew exactly what they were doing in the kit fiasco and gambled on getting away with it and had they done so they planned to buy Kent but when it became apparent that their gamble had backfired they dropped the plan hence the timing of SG announcement that they had given up hope of bringing Kent back to Ibrox?


1.) 01 Aug 2019 22:30:32
They never planned to buy Kent you came up with a BS story that they would and now trying to cover yourself.


2.) 02 Aug 2019 09:17:34
GANNET10 a wee question for you my friend. You have always insisted on here, that ryan kent wasn't that good or consistent and wouldn't be a big a big loss if we didn't sign him. I like many others on here said he is a cracking winger and would have loved him to sign with us, on a permanent or another loan deal. How would you feel if ryan kent was playing against us for celtic this season? Because i wouldn't be in the least surprised, if they tried to sign kent. There's stories doing the rounds that they quite possibly will try and sign kent. Me personally, it would make me physically sick, if i had to watch ryan kent playing against rangers, in that rag of a hoops jersey. He would obviously have the ability to hurt us badly.


3.) 02 Aug 2019 09:57:51
SGL if they sign him for ยฃ7m then it would not bother me as he is simply not worth that money in Soctland but if they sign him for ยฃ3m and we could have, this would be a conern. Good player though he is, he his not worth the figures being touted about. Ask yourself why Liverpool are apparently prepared to let him go.


4.) 02 Aug 2019 10:03:31
Living up to your name, muppet. DK knew what he was doing and hoped to get away with it, true. But the rest makes as much sense as the Swedish chef.


5.) 02 Aug 2019 12:51:50
People saying Celtic after kent need to stay aff the fkn glue.


6.) 02 Aug 2019 12:56:05
hi fellow bears
look its fairly simple! we will have to do a deal with sports direct . end of! we cannot use elite hummel! end of! dave king has said any financial settlement will be paid! end of! the club has stated we will not be without a shirt sponsor next year! so can we move on now please


7.) 02 Aug 2019 14:34:54
The club/ Dave king said he'd dealt with SD/ the fatman before. Dave says a lot. The situation regarding kit/ merchandise is a joke! End of!


8.) 02 Aug 2019 15:11:52
how is it a joke we were getting 7p in the ยฃ got rid of that now we have to do a new deal what's the problem mr grumpy? the situation is a hell of a lot better than getting next to feck all now at least we can try and do a deal with sports direct they have been told to sit down and strike a deal its in all parties interest. if dk hadnt got us out of that ridiculous deal where would we be now. up to our eyes in debt to ashley and his cronies or i shudder to think where we would have ended up. like i said just do a deal that suits all parties it is actually that simple.


9.) 02 Aug 2019 16:23:14
Mols the question you ask me is very easy to answer pal. Liverpool are prepared to let ryan kent go because they can't guarantee him game time,
with guys like salah, mane and firminio in front of him. Also klopp said that kent is too good to not be playing regularly for a good football club. He needs to be a settled regular in a starting 11,at his age now. Hope i've answered your question mols.


10.) 02 Aug 2019 16:38:36
Someone on here posted that the Hummel deal was a 5yr deal. Does that mean SD have to match that then we are tied to them ( albeit on the same terms as Hummel) for another 5 years?


11.) 02 Aug 2019 17:48:59
BS story? Not making sense? SG himself has stated that he wants Kent and was prepared to wait for as long as it takes so no question the SG agrees with me and many others on here about the value of having Kent back. Question is would rangers pay the asking price of ยฃ7m if they could afford it? I think so. If the SD fiasco had not raised its ugly head and they had moved out Grezda and another it would have been perfectly doable. The SD carry on has severely dented that possibility but tav could still go and Kent could come in on a permanent deal which is what I am claiming. Letโ€™s see who is right!


12.) 02 Aug 2019 20:28:10
SGL comprehensive and probably fairly accurate response but in other words he is not good enough. We will see where he is playing his football in 5 years time. He will get a game every week in Scotland but no so sure about the EPL.


13.) 02 Aug 2019 21:09:10
Zikos, i can assure you the hummel kit deal was most definitely a 3 year deal, not a 5 year deal mate.


14.) 02 Aug 2019 22:27:05
Our lovable rogue Dave told us, the supporters he'd paid off the fatman, that obiviously wasn't true. The club has lost time and time again in court to SD/ the fatman, this costing the club money. Last season dave said the soft loans had been turned into shares. Sounds good, few days later we get another loan from close brothers. It ws only days ago the club was talking about expanding the stadium. Sounds good but obiviously either bull or many years away. After a decent summer of recruiting we should be talking about the upcoming season. Dave King is a chancer and full of it. End of!


15.) 03 Aug 2019 00:14:11
I have said in the past his stats are poor and they are stats donโ€™t lie so they say.
He had 2 blinders against Celtic and slapped brown and to some fans that wear blue tinted specs he is a hero and the rest of the season he was bang average now thatโ€™s not me making anything up thatโ€™s stone cold hands facts mate.


16.) 03 Aug 2019 11:22:16
First time poster troops go easy, but GANNET, crazy the amount of people on here that are quick to say ryan kent isn't good enough, highly rated enough by 1. Steven Gerrard and 2. Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool manager of the best team Liverpool has seen in years winning the champions league and giving the best premier league side of this generation (man city) a run for their money for the league. Klopp took on Kent on their tour because he was potentially looking at first team football, fair enough it never worked out given the attacking options they had, but considering he was even considered and actually had a lot of praise from klopp after the tour goes to show you how highly rated he is, so don't and never will agree with the bashing of kent on here, stats aren't everything and we wouldn't have done half as good in the league last season. Kent is class.


17.) 03 Aug 2019 12:38:46
but again I understand that with such a price tag some people would be against a permanent move for kent as it is a totally different ball game for us to pay that money compared to English teams paying it.


18.) 06 Aug 2019 10:17:35
So far we have spent very little on players this transfer window and while better than what we had last season the majority of the players signed on free transfers are nothing more than squad players. If we are to win the league and make serious progress in Europe we still require a couple more quality players and that will cost money. Whether we should sign Kent at ยฃ7m is open to debate but that is the level of player we should be looking at. We should also be looking to sign a quality striker to play alongside Morelos, not to replace him. It will be a long season and if we progress to the Group Stages in Europe then we are still short of a quality squad.

A lot of posters on here think I hate Morelos and Gerrard. Nothing is further from the truth. I love these guys, admire them both. Morelos a great signing, works his socks off, scores goals, hassles defences. Gerrard has done a lot for this club, highly respected individual, the task he took on was far from easy, but he has done well. Still learning, but regardless of whoever became the manager it was never going to be a stroll in the park. All I want is for Morelos to leave on a high, play to the best of his ability whilst still a Ger, show the world what he can do, and earn the transfer he so badly desires. As for Gerrard, change the system at times, make the substitutions at the right time, drop players that are not performing, and stop sticking to your favourites, and letโ€™s see one of the youngsters get a run in the team.


1.) 08 Aug 2020 20:48:29
That's fair enough The Muppet, you're perfectly entitled to your opinion no matter who agrees with you or not mate. You have explained what your take is with gerrard and morelos, so respect for you for doing so pal! ๐Ÿ‘.


2.) 08 Aug 2020 21:39:18
sounds like you love the rangers to me, muppet.


3.) 08 Aug 2020 21:43:42
Whilst weโ€™re being honest I think most things that happen on the field rests at the managers feet.

Morelos gets sent off - I blame SG for endorsing that reaction.

Morelos is unfit and over weight - I blame SG either for allowing him to get into that condition, not keeping tabs on his fitness during lockdown and not having other options.

I think he will mature into a great manager but we shouldnโ€™t be a training ground for inexperienced managers to learn their craft. Weโ€™re bigger than that.

Personally think if the season had been played out then he would have been sacked, but he has another chance and I hope he grabs it with both arms.

So far Iโ€™ve been quite impressed with how he has tweaked the style a bit but I still fear that we donโ€™t create enough chances. Against Aberdeen Alfie had maybe 2 or 3 half chances. Hopefully SG can get Hagi and Kent to pass the ball every now and then and we can finally push for the league. Weโ€™re not far away. I think we have the players just not sure about the management team. Hoping to be proved wrong.


4.) 08 Aug 2020 23:10:10
Its our management team that have brought the players in, so i think with a tweak here and there we do have the management team and as i've always said gerrard will win the league as rangers manager! ๐Ÿ‘Œ.


5.) 09 Aug 2020 02:02:17
I'm looking at s. g in a different light now. Blind loyalty to Tav is a joke. The worst performer on the pitch v Leverkusen. Lost possession more than 15 times. Statistically the worst player on the pitch. Worse than that 17 year old kid. Caught out of place more times than anyone else. No tackles. Good attitude in training aside, performance on match days is what matters. He underperformed once again. His mistake cost us a goal again. A constant culprit. Stevie can't now say that he'll drop Morelos for having his mind elsewhere, he has to drop the ones who constantly cost us games. Day in and day out Tav makes mistakes. Sometimes he assists, but not enough. S. G even contradicts what he says himself. I quote "if players don't perform, they won't have a place for the next game". Katic is out at one mistake. Tav is played over and over. Do the management not watch games back and think, hey, look at Tav, he's always in the wrong place and losing the ball? I know 100%, as do we all, that if Celtic win this year, Stevie is done. Two years and no silverware. The worst streak we've ever had. In our existence. Europe aside, the history is there for all to see. No other manager in our history has won nothing in the same amount of time as stevie. g. all talk so far and nothing to show. When that league trophy for 55 is in Ibrox this season, then we can say that Stevie has done it. If it's at Celtic park, Stevie should stop his management career immediately. Rangers isn't a job as a trial run or stop gap. As of now, I believe that Stevie's fate will be decided in the next 30 games. Souness, Smith, advocaat, mccoist, mccleish have all performed better than s. g in the same amount of time. As a player, tremendous, but looking at his numbers so far, as a manager, average. He's spent almost more than all the other managers too. We need to open our eyes now and stop the blind faith. Tav has to be dropped. Goldson has to stop the useless punts up the pitch, as does McGregor. Morelos needs a kick up the arse. Walter Smith would have dropped them without a second thought. Mccoist would of had a few choice words. I remember when advocaat dropped Barry ferguson for being up himself. They all got knocked back into place. S. g just seems to waffle on and then pick his favourites. If the usual culprits are at it again tomorrow, I'm going to be well peed off. Patterson is chomping at the bit for a game and has made very few mistakes when he's had the chance. Let's see what the next game brings.


6.) 09 Aug 2020 07:39:46
Well said rossco spot on with it all.


 

 

08 Aug 2020 09:02:30
I sincerely hope Gerrard does not select the Huffalo (no that is not a typo) for the game against StMirren, if he does it shows just how weak he is as a manager. A strong manager would bench him, and let him know in no uncertain terms, he is not walking on the hallowed turf ever again unless I am 100% convinced I will see the old Buffalo, banging in the goals, snorting like a beast, and putting the fear of death into every single defender. And I donโ€™t care about the money as much as the club needs it, you are not playing again pal, until you take that dummy out yer mouth, and you get your head right. Now does anyone see Gerrard being that strong?


1.) 08 Aug 2020 09:08:42

A few people on other threads particularly mr grumpy have been asking why fredo should be excluded from the starting line up. Its actually mind boggling why you have to provide an explanation to these people but its the only way they seem to learn as they are clearly incapable of using their eyes and ears๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜

Gerrard has said he wants fredo fitter and sharper - translates as fredo is unfit and a yard off it.

Gerrard has said that fredo's head has been turned - translates as fredo is not interested.

Gerrard has said that he only wants to work with players that want to be here - translates as fredo doesn't want to be here.

Now why does fredo deserve a start on Sunday๐Ÿค” Surely the team comes first and what example would it set to the rest of the team if fredo was to start? If we want to win titles surely we need players that are 100% dedicated to the cause๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘.

Muppet I said the same thing yesterday, I personally find home spineless that's why Morelos has played at all this season and it is why tav is still a rangers player.


5.) 08 Aug 2020 09:31:13
Coldo I agree the only way he can possibly start is if Gerrard is as spineless as we are beginning to think.

That's we as in those of us who are not blinded by things just because we love the club.


6.) 08 Aug 2020 09:34:23
Morelos is our top goal scorer.
Itten is unknown by everyone and now he is our saviour?
Roofe is unfit.
Horses for courses. A half fit, half interested Morelos will still destroy St Mirren and keep him in the shop window. ๐Ÿ‘.


7.) 08 Aug 2020 09:38:37
Blue bell I admire your optimism but he is not half fit he is unfit (to wear the jersey)

He is not half interested, he is completely disinterested.


8.) 08 Aug 2020 09:39:34
Some threads on this would depress a Prozac. We've played one game of the new season and it's all doom and gloom.


9.) 08 Aug 2020 09:41:51
Some of the postings in here border on ridiculous. Morelos had to start in the euro game, heโ€™s competition top scorer and we needed him to step up (he obvs didnโ€™t) . If he hadnโ€™t started him bigger questions would have needed answered.
The abuse Tav is getting is bang out of order. seriously Jenkins your saying our manager is spineless as Tav is still a rangers play?! WTF.


10.) 08 Aug 2020 09:43:11
Walter smith would never be as spineless as your post bluebell. Scoring a goal or two against st mirren will not encourage clubs to pay north of 15mil either. Where is our dignity for our club?


11.) 08 Aug 2020 09:45:15
In these other posts you refer to coldo. I am usually replying to one of your many, many, many posts on Morelos and all his many faults that you go on and on about ๐Ÿ˜‰
You've now become Gerrard's translater now? ๐Ÿค” Congratulations ๐Ÿ‘
Just to confirm coldo and jsijenkins aren't the same poster, are they? ๐Ÿ˜.

Mr grumpy definitely not I can assure you of that.

All said and done morelos wants away let him go said rangers knocked back ยฃ16.25 million Lille this morning donโ€™t know if true weโ€™ve bought 2 strikers think that tells you everything and gerrards body language with him Thursday night times up.


15.) 08 Aug 2020 10:06:56
i am astonished with the actual hatred shown on here to both our top goalscorer and asset and our manager. the manager will play Morelos because benching him is not the way to deal with someone low in confidence. actually i hope he does and Itten comes on and does nothing. then you guys will start to appreciate what we have.

it is actually ridiculous that someone who took us so far in europe and without him we would have sat about 3rd or 4th in the league.

very short memories people have. never in my life have i seen or heard rangers fans turn on their players the way you lot have on Morelos. Get a grip.

21.) 08 Aug 2020 10:33:05
Am I the only one who thought Morelos played quite well last Sunday? He was terrible on Thursday but that happens it doesn't necessarily mean he is disinterested, I would like to see him start on Sunday and take it from there.


22.) 08 Aug 2020 10:54:02
I think so jyf but it's easy to interpret his stats in a way that makes it seem he done well mate.
Unfortunately the stat of 1 goal since Dubai is the proof of his drop.


23.) 08 Aug 2020 11:09:17
I have too grumpy, people are blinkered๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘.


24.) 08 Aug 2020 11:12:23
I agree Mr Grumpy, some on here have had an agenda against Morelos from day 1. Never mind that he has made our club a fortune from European revenues almost single handed with his superb European performances. Never mind that at some points over the last couple of seasons he has been the only one who has carried the fight or that he has been the only one that has been scoring regularly, never mind that when he does move on he will make our club an absolute fortune and be our biggest transfer fee earned, they cannot wait to stick the knife in.

I do however agree that he has really struggled for form recently but I do not think we have had the options in the sqaud until now to rest him.

When he does inevitably leave however every single Rangers fan should reflect on what a debt of gratitude we owe this young man and when, Hopefully Roofe etc start banging the goals in we should also remember but for Morelos goals in Europe and transfer fees earned we mght never have been able to attract these new players in the first place .


25.) 08 Aug 2020 11:12:44
He played how he was asked to by the manager against the sheep. He seemed pretty pleased when celebrating Kent's goal. For a player not interested anymore? ๐Ÿค”
Wouldn't be at all surprised if started against stmirren.


26.) 08 Aug 2020 11:22:20
so for coldo - translates as "he who has sole right to talk down to people" hahahahaa you're too much.


27.) 08 Aug 2020 11:22:42
So you're saying gerrard's a liar then grumpy, because gerrard said that he wants fredo sharper and fitter, his head is turned and he only wants to work with players that want to be here. Surely you're not that daft grumpy๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘.


28.) 08 Aug 2020 11:23:24
Geesadodothat - Morelos will be away this window, I think the majority of us on here can agree and accept that. When he goes, then Itten and Roofe will be the main strikers for us this season so for a Rangers fan to say he hopes Itten "does nothing" is daft. We all appreciate what Morelos has done, however his constant interviews about wanting to play in a more competitive league, his performances since January have been woeful.


29.) 08 Aug 2020 11:29:57
well said Cambiger, i really like the guy, might be obvious. i do understand he will go and make the club a fortune and rightly too, gone are the days we can hold on to players with ambition.

But let him go when its right for the club and not get hounded out by the haters on here.


30.) 08 Aug 2020 11:41:06
For fredo to score goals he needs to be supplied and he hasnโ€™t had the supply since jan
Fredo is the easy target because it looks like he is away.


31.) 08 Aug 2020 11:44:07
Coldo what does SG mean when he says fredo is fit and ready which he has said before the 2 games we have played this season? Can you translate that for me ya ๐Ÿคก.


32.) 08 Aug 2020 11:46:54
Laudrup downed tools after he signed he pre contract with Chelsea, Coldo and done nothing until the summer.
So the great Sir Walter Smith in your eyes must have been spineless ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘.


33.) 08 Aug 2020 12:07:23
That's a terrible statement from a rangers supporter? to say they hope itten comes on and does nothing!
Geesadodothat, honestly pal that's an absolute shocking statement to come away with, as far as i'm concerned! ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž.


34.) 08 Aug 2020 12:15:52
Gerrard has since changed his statement to he wants fredo sharper and fitter KJA9 ya ๐Ÿคก๐Ÿ‘.

Looks like Celtic have been awarded 3 points vs Aberdeen with them missing 8 players plus Cosgrove and the game going ahead. Another boost for their goal difference must be planning to call the league sometime soon ๐Ÿ˜‚.


1.) 07 Aug 2020 18:53:32
Plus considine. if gets any worse they will have no option but to call it off.


2.) 07 Aug 2020 19:02:35
Im not sure Aberdeen players weren't in pub last Friday night. The way they played against us Saturday lunchtime you have to wonder. There punishment is to get game postponed for their players breaking rules. Hearts and Thistle were slaughtered for wanting to appeal their relegation. Yet Aberdeen will get what punishment from Doncaster and Co? Nothing no doubt.


3.) 07 Aug 2020 19:53:54
Game v at Johnstone rescheduled for the 20th august so they will play a full strength side but the Aberdeen games against Celtic and Hamilton will go ahead with probably a depleted Aberdeen side, how can that be? ๐Ÿค”.


4.) 07 Aug 2020 20:23:07
I'm sure the games will rescheduled if it gets worse, they will be waiting until nearer game time before making a decision which is the correct thing to do, or they could award 3 points to the other team if aberdeen can't play their games but you's would cry conspiracy if celtic were awarded 3 points๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ. Cue yately๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘.


5.) 07 Aug 2020 20:47:45
I donโ€™t understand how 8 of them were in the pub (soul bar) after the game. who was it from outside Aberdeen that paid for the drink! ๐Ÿคฃ.

I think everyone on here agrees that Leverkusen were a bridge too far for us, a class above. I accept that, it's true, but are we now accepting mediocrity as the norm? We had one header on target in the entire 90 mins. Sure they are a class act, but would the Gers of old have gone down and out with a whimper, or would they have shown pride and determination and fought like tigers even if it was a hopeless task. I think the good old gers sides would be embarrassed to have watched that performance. You have to have the heart of a lion, be prepared to give your all, and never lie down and accept you are beaten. I always thought this is what made Scottish players unique.


1.) 07 Aug 2020 10:54:46
Think you've got rose tinted specs on Muppet. There was many occasions in Europe where the old gers sides were embrassed. Old gers sides much better than our current one.

Very true Muppet I blame it on the council, Remember when I was a boy you could play football on any bit o waste ground. Not anymore. All great Rangers teams had a hard core of Scottish players.

07 Aug 2020 08:11:44
Okay guys imagine you are the manager for the game against St Mirren, would you play Morelos who can't be arsed (personally I find that attitude unacceptable) or drop him and play Itten? You already know where I stand!


1.) 07 Aug 2020 09:58:08
Muppet I think he has to be dropped. As SG said he wants to concentrate on players who want to be here and now that we have excellent replacements we open a new chapter, thank fredo and wish him well ๐Ÿ‘‹.


2.) 07 Aug 2020 09:59:01
Morelos will be on the bench I think along with Roofe, Itten will be looking to hit the ground running and still has match fitness.


3.) 07 Aug 2020 10:11:33
The stupidity of Morelos is going to cost us and he himself is too dumb to realise that ultimately it's going to cost him too.

I don't rate Edouard half as highly as the other mob do but seriously does anybody still honestly maintain that Morelos is worth more in the transfer market?


4.) 07 Aug 2020 10:19:55
If he starts then Gerrard has to be dropped in my opinion.


5.) 07 Aug 2020 10:27:17
I agree with SirStruth that itten will start, with roofe and morelos,
assuming he's still here, on the bench, for our game on sunday against st. mirren๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ.


6.) 07 Aug 2020 13:01:17
I'd bench Morelos, he doesn't look interested anymore, chasing the bigger pay packet and the spotlight as usual. Don't get me wrong, he is an outstanding player and a proven finisher on his day, but he is not a team player and he undermines the manager too often. I think Gerrard has made too many exceptions for Morelos, and it will be bad for team morale. Roofe and Itten sound like they have their head screwed on, and will pay far more respect to SG, which is how it should be. Both will bring qualities to the team which we have been missing. Itten will score more goals on Sunday than Morelos has managed since the start of the year. Morelos is forcing Rangers hand; keep a player who doesn't want to be there, who isn't playing to his usual standards, and who will undoubtedly be affecting the morale of the team, or take a reduced fee which Lille have offered to get rid and salvage what value remains? Then you get the type of player who remians committed to the team, no matter what, proves the value the club have given him, forcing other teams to bid what is asked before another team beats them to the signature.

Orange Tinted yes correct, that's why I am reserving judgement on Itten, need to see the guy for real before I can decide, but the YouTube videos which are his highlights don't impress me that much, but one cannot make an accurate decision from YouTube. He may well turn out to be brilliant, watch this space.

Snell / Coldo letโ€™s see who is right, we will know after a few games. I cannot comment on Itten just now waiting to see him play a game or two, thatโ€™s all I need to decide, but I am confident of Roofe if he stays fit. 6 Counties if he had Roofe and Morelos before perhaps he would have gone with two up front?

Not convinced of Itten as yet, seems quite similar to Dykes who most on here thought was not good enough, but I will reserve judgment until I have seen him play in the flesh, not on YouTube. Open mind for now, whereas in the case of Roofe I am convinced he is an excellent signing. If we are serious about toppling Celtic we should be keeping Morelos and pairing him up front with Roofe.

I donโ€™t believe Iโ€™m hearing this Tav to Midfield nonsense again. He is not a midfield player he does not have the requisite skills. People seem to think that because he is a liability (at times) as a defender he would automatically make a decent midfielder, sorry Iโ€™m not buying that. Also I thought we had just bought Balogun as a backup CB along with Bertie Bassett ๐Ÿ˜‰.

A player on those wages who needs competition for his place to motivate him is not a player I would want in my team. Need players who respect the club and supporters who are shelling out lots of cash to watch them, buy them, pay their salaries. Itโ€™s an insult to turn up and not be interested in entertaining the supporters. I donโ€™t care if your heart is set on a move to another club, honour your contract, honour the supporters, and respect the club.
