Hey fellow bears looking for your thoughts.
I got out the old dvd collection and watched some if the 9 n row games. After watching it got me thinking, we had some fantastic players on our books throughout that period but one of the things I noticed was the core of the teams was Scottish. Players like Ian Ferguson, John Brown, and big slim, Robertson, and the usual McCoist ect. individual these guys where imo where not world class, but they new what it was about to play for Rangers and always gave 110% in each game. When I look at our current squad the only players that I see with genuine hurt in their face if we lose or draw a game are Halliday, McGregor and maybe Jack, Docherty and Davis.
When I look across the city I see similarities with their core being Scottish.

So basically what I'm asking should there be more of a focus on trying to throw in some of our younger players who have the club in their blood and sticking with them. Hastie, Docherty, Halliday McPake and Mayo.

I'm not sure if it happens in training but playing Rangers supporting players against the others should be reintroduced. I remember McCoist n co talking about the Scottish players playing against the others and on most occasions it ended up tasty with tackles flying in. This would show what it means to play for Rangers to our none supporting players ect.

I think we have a decent squad atm but on occasion some of our players lack passion to give that wee extra 10% that makes the difference in tough games. A bit more of the Killy fight.

Again I'm back to the old chestnut. I have posted on here and get slaughtered for saying Tav should not be our Captain he is 2 niceynice and not a leader. I think I can count on one hand the amount of times I've seen him geeing up the players or getting tore into them if they are playing poor. Imo McGregor or Arfield should be our captain or even Halliday. I want to see passion in our captain.

I will give you couple examples of this passion last seasons first old firm game. Look at the lift the players got from that first tackle by halliday when got to his feet you could see the aggression on his face shouting at the players and fans to come on let's do this and get into them and Arfield getting into proon face. Also Halliday charging over to proon at the end of the game in the defeat at the piggery for disrespecting our fans.

Agree2 Disagree1

Halliday as captain he’s a ****in sub at best most of the time lol plus goldson and Katic looked scunnered ever time we got beat.

U can't have a captain taht is 3rs choice left back surely?

I was just trying to highlight how Halliday, s passion can be a driving force. Imo last season Halliday was our best left back. If you had to pick a player that u would say was the most improved player in our squad last season. Who would you select. But anyway your missing the point guys and that point is passion and fight. I'm only using Halliday as an example.

My pick would be ryan jack.

Stewart- great post mate, it's great to watch Rangers DVDs of old. I totally agree with your post and I would like Arfield to be captain. I'm not a fan of keepers being captain. Tav is doing well and is extremely fit and injury free but not captain material.

07 Aug 2019 17:17:14
Got to agree - my captain would be Jack as well.

Lay off of Stewartyblue, it is a good post and a good point. I think Halliday is true blue through and through, even though not the best player ever. Ryan Jack would be a good captain as would Scott Arfield. We can win the league this season if SG gets it right and doesn't become another 'Tinkerman'. It would be great to get a run in the Europa League but I'd rather crash out before the group stages and win the league. End of.

Davis for Capitan he has got his mojo back the wee man has the minerals and the experience maybe I'm biased being from Norn Iron.

I'm happy with our current captain james tavernier, to remain rangers captain. If tav were to be sold, i think scotty arfield or ryan jack should be our next captain. Both them equally, would make good rangers captains.

Sorry mate, Halliday passion doesn't reflect skill. He's nowhere near good enough. Good player to have to mix it but easy to see SG building team of skill not kill.
