A wee addendum to my last post

How much would we have to pay to replace Tav?

How much would we have to pay to replace Morelos?

Anyone got a spare £100 million?

I posted yesterday regarding this. My worry is that he sees Flanagan or Polster as a replacement. In terms of how much it would take to replace him like for like, you could find a diamond in the rough for 200k or spend big ( 4 to 6m ) realistically, on a player who fails to impress.

I am wondering how much it would cost to buy a like for like replacement?

22 Jul 2019 11:50:17
Prob reckon we could find suitable replacements for 5 mill each. Morelos is a tough 1 cause of his style of play. Tav i think easier to replace as u find a lot of right backs are athletic and like getting forward these days. Our new striker could be pen taker. polster is a good player not as good going forwars but far better defender.

22 Jul 2019 11:59:41
Cato what is a like for like replacement, someone who can't defend, scores most penalties he takes, plenty of assists.
Polster bought as a replacement, can defend, one game one assist . I agree Flanagan not long term answer, as he does not get many assists
I believe most penalties are scored, so over to Defoe, Morelos or an other
It's not the end of rfc if Tav goes. He may need to go if we don't get to group stages.

22 Jul 2019 12:05:25
I disagree Paul I think polster is good at going forward I think more game time for him he could be a gem. But if Tav was to leave it would be a big asset we would miss.

22 Jul 2019 12:11:53
100mil 😂😂😂😂😂😂.

22 Jul 2019 12:37:43
In terms of replacing Tav I think you just have to take a look across the city to see the problem we may have. They have been searching for a replacement right back for the best part of a year now and still haven’t really found one. The issue they (and if we sell Tav we) have is that to find someone that can offer the same or is at the same level of who is being replaced you are probably talking of spending 5million plus. The issue with that is players who cost 5 million plus don’t always fancy playing in the Scottish league, even if it is for Rangers or Celtic. You’re then back to trying to pick up a young up and coming gem which are far and few between. Players like Edmunson and Aribo, both of whom I’m guessing we scouted for a long time. So if we haven’t been actively searching for a right back, finding one to replace Tav at short notice may prove a very difficult task.

I despair I really do. Paul86 please send you resume to Ibrox, 5m really? that's Mark Allan out the door then. Tav can and does defend he's not the best but far from the worst. 4 years averaging 20 (or close) assists a season please digest this. Andy Robertson got 11 for Liverpool I'm not comparing the two as full backs just pointing out the enormity of what Tav brings to the table up here. I think Celtics best assists was about 14 same league and again not saying Tav would beat Celtic on his own. I got pelters for referring to some of our posters as brain dead so please stop proving me right.

22 Jul 2019 13:12:45
I think it could be as much as £800m although if we get the expected £1.2b then we should still be up.

On a serious note though, it would probably cost us £2m / £3m to replace, seeing how we only spent £1.3m getting them in the first place.

We’ve got a good scouting team in place and we’ll have people lined up should they move, we probably won’t even know the players who are lined up but I’m sure they’ll do a job for us.

Personally, as we’re expecting EPL prices for Tav and Morelos I’m looking forward to watching both at Ibrox next season.

22 Jul 2019 13:31:13
But why do we need to buy a player, we have a youth team. Use it. Celtic did and got a great player in Tierney.
( say what you want about him he's a great player. we would be saying legend status if he was with us. )
Why don't SG loo at our youth and build them to be something great.

22 Jul 2019 14:03:39
and still no one has come up with one player to replace Tav or Morelos - it is all right to sell them for £25 mill, combined, but how much will it cost to replace them?

22 Jul 2019 14:04:32
Fifa - which is why SG has sent our youth out on loan.

22 Jul 2019 14:07:51
Why would mark allen be out door? He hasn't spent 5mil on a single player. Infact his job is to identify talent that costs next to he haw. We spent not even 1.5mil combined for tav and morelos so what would be the point of having mark allen if we couldn't get two players like that again for little cost? Of course we can replace them both for less than 5mil combined. So I ask again, why would mark allen be out the door? 👍.

22 Jul 2019 14:27:00
coldo - replace them with who? Who is going to score 30 (+) goals for us per season? Who is going to replace our captain defend, play sweeper and score important goals with penalties and freekicks?

22 Jul 2019 14:41:42
Hate to be a party pooper coldo but where are Morelos and Tavs replacements bearing in mind that SG is selling them both to the highest bidders and the start of the season is not too far away.

22 Jul 2019 15:16:44
Cato, we’re not part of Rangers scouting team, how are we going to come up with a player? Just relax, we’ve had better than both Tav and Morelos and we’ll have better again in the future, both are good players but not irreplaceable. If they move on our scouting team will sign other players who’ll score 30+ goals.

22 Jul 2019 15:16:46
For 25mil we could easily replace them👍.

22 Jul 2019 15:39:43
Cato, I've already said USA international, polster.

22 Jul 2019 16:10:10
I simply love Morelos and have from beginning but I am starting to think like others that we link up play much better with Defoe and arfeild . the last six or seven games have been like that . it can’t be a coincidence surely.

22 Jul 2019 16:15:01
I will make this very simple

find a striker anywhere that can score 30 goals plus, a season and is worth less than £15 million and would be first name SG picks every game?


22 Jul 2019 16:22:57
I’ll make it even easier, why would we? How about we leave this type of job to the professionals? Why not go play some champman?

22 Jul 2019 16:31:52
Morelos did it costing a million. Lawrence Shankland did it last season. Griffiths did it a couple of years ago for the tims costing next to hee haw.

22 Jul 2019 16:47:15
Defoe cato, its simple you are talking 💩👍.

22 Jul 2019 17:17:07
Is that your answer - yes ah could?


22 Jul 2019 17:53:59
Isn't Polster already a full US international? There's your answer then.

22 Jul 2019 18:16:38
Are we just all going to ignore the fact Cato thinks Tav plays sweeper? Ramblings of a mad man.

22 Jul 2019 18:50:06
He has taking the baton off coop with that "100mil" statement snell. Cato is obviously challenged in some capacity👍.

22 Jul 2019 20:17:03
I actually didn't notice the sweeper part as I skimmed it because even by previous posts he clearly doesn't know much about football.
