Here is the last Rangers squad to be selected before Gerrard became manager versus the latest squad selected under Gerrard:

Alnwick - McGregor
Tav - Tav
Bates - Goldson
Martin - Katic
Halliday - Halliday
Rossiter - Jack
Holt - Aribo
Goss - Arfield
Candeias - Hagi
Cummings - Morelos
Murphy - Kent

Hodson - Edmundson
Alves - Davis
Windass - Barker
Kelly - Foderingham
Docherty - Stewart
Herrera - Ojo
O'Halloran - Kamberi

Its difficult when you see the names next to each other to argue that we haven't improved the quality of our team. I know what team i'd rather watch. In Gerrard I trust.

Jack and Morelos were both at the club already so you could swap them out for Rossiter and Cummings. Martin was terrible but not sure Bates was any worse than the current two middens. McGregor and Arfield were already in the bag before Gerrard was appointed so you could add them to the team as well. And Murphy by all accounts is in far better form than Kent at the moment!

The best players in the second lineup all preceded Gerrard, bar Aribo who the jury is still out on due to inconsistency, Kent who looks a massive waste of £7m, and Hagi who is currently only on loan.

Wagsman read the post. Last team before Gerrard got job as opposed to Sunday’s team.
So why start swapping people out.
It’s a factual post naming to teams that played.

Thanks john25 it is a factual post and theswagman stating that McGregor and Arfield were already in the bag is ridiculous. Do you not think swagman that Gerrard gave the green light for them to be signed? My opinion would be that he did. Gerrard was announced as manager long before he actually arrived. He had an obligation to see the season out with his work as Liverpool youth coach.

Choose any lineup from the 17/ 18 season and compare it to the squad against St Johnstone which doesn't include Barisic and Helander and I would suggest that it would be of less quality than that of Sunday.

We are moving forward, not without challenges and slip ups but we are. C'mon the gers.

MOCBear and John25, totally agree, we have moved forward, who would have picked different teams since January to those picked by Gerrard, the players have to take responsibility for these poor results. Morelos, for all the goals he has scored is a petulant boy, and his tantrums leading suspensions cost us this season, as, he was vital to us maintaining a title push this season, you're only as good as your last game, and, this is where SG has let himself down, as I posted yesterday, he has to start being ruthless to some of these highly (possibly overpaid) individuals. Katic, I feel should be played tomorrow evening, as to drop him now again would shatter his confidence, he didn't deserve to be dropped when he was originally, so, let's give him a break, I know I said after Sunday, 'Don't mention Katic and Goldson to me', but I've mellowed since that.

Bates is better than Goldson or Katic?
Now I know you’re at the wind up Swagman! 😂🤣😂🤣😂.

25 Feb 2020 11:52:18
Just for clarity Swagman. Steven Gerrard was announced as Rangers manager on 4th May 18. Scott Arfield signed for Rangers on 14th May 18. Alan McGregor signed for Rangers on 16th May 18. Most definitely signed with SG's blessing!

25 Feb 2020 12:19:10
Gerrard already stated publicly at that time he was addressed on the possibility of signing Alan mcgregor and Arfield and if he wanted them, he said definitely and that he’s always admired mcgregor as a top goalie etc he gave the green light to sign them, u can’t tel me that mcgregor isn’t an improvement on Foderingham who is about 10 ft when standing and 4 ft when he jumps up 🤔😂😆 with Foderingham Celtic we’re going on scoring ten in a game 😆.

25 Feb 2020 12:55:49
Didn't finish reading theswagmans post after the 'ginger Maldini' (bates) being better than goldson or katic🤔.

25 Feb 2020 13:24:47
Still not win anything though.

25 Feb 2020 13:27:37
I didn’t say he was better, said there isn’t much in it. Which is true. He wasn’t great on the ball but could actually defend.

McGregor and Arfield had both agreed contracts before Gerrard came on board. Does “giving them his blessing” make him a managerial genius? Asked if he would like two international players who have played in the top flight in England what’s he going to say, no?

John25 - who made up the rules of this game? I’m not allowed to point out that players in the second lineup were already at the club and therefore nothing to do with him?

Is this the level the Stevie G cult of delusion has gotten to, we’re now pretending he signed players he didn’t? 😂

Enjoy Celtic winning 10 in a row with your Instagram manager lads. You’ll get exactly what you deserve if you continue to back him.

Deals to sign mcgregor and Arfield were in the pipeline before gerrard was confirmed as manager.
However gerrard is on record as saying he was asked about both and said it was a no brainier to get them in.

25 Feb 2020 13:57:39
Wagsman the post is factual mate. Yes you can point out what u wish on here.
Can u remind me where Bates is please.

25 Feb 2020 14:36:12
The deals to sign Mcgregor and Arfield may well have been in the pipeline but the fact is they were not signed until the dates i posted. If Gerrard said he didn't want them then they would not have been signed so there's no argument swag.

25 Feb 2020 17:10:35
Bates signed for Hamburg. Goldson couldn’t get a game for Brighton and Katic was from a Croatian no Mark team.

25 Feb 2020 17:10:39
Moc what you need to remember mate is your facts do not suit some people’s argument on hear.

25 Feb 2020 17:11:03
Delusional minds will say anything to convince themselves they are right. 😂😂😂.

25 Feb 2020 19:58:06
Bates is a big hopeless lump of wood.

26 Feb 2020 00:38:24
Theswagman, i dont think you understand the ops post, or what it is about, the last i heard bates was looking for a club. once the germans noticed there mistake, they drove bates to the airport.
