Anyone else concerned with the lack of transfer activity or even serious links to decent players? So far Hagi is our only decent signing and even on him the jury is out to some extent. A ropey goalkeeper, a 38 year old striker and a youth left back. We need 3 players minimum that can go right into the starting lineup. I think Gerrard still has too much faith in the flops that have let us down twice (at least) before - Tav, Goldson, Kent etc. I would sadly be surprised if the first starting lineup of this season has more than one new signing in it.

Nope, I’m not concerned. I have trust in our management team. Rangers will be in the best possible shape for next season.

02 Jul 2020 14:14:48
No as that transfer window hasn’t opened yet so I think you need to have be a little patience.

02 Jul 2020 14:31:02
Ropey goalkeeper? You know a lot about him Swagman's?
And you're well up to speed on U23 football in the EPL?
Good to see you're already back to normal slating Gerrard before a ball has even been kicked in anger.
P. S. you should read Andy Halliday's opinion on Tav and Goldson. I take that over yours. 👍.

Here we go he’s back 😱😱the happiness hoover!

02 Jul 2020 15:38:17
aye were having a nightmare did the tranfer window not just officialy open yesterday? we will sign stronger players. bassey and the keeper have had to come in to fill spaces left by halliday flanagan and wes/ alnwick. there called squad players.

02 Jul 2020 16:14:00
Would be lying if I said this about Basset but definitely feel it's a goalie upgrade too. Good signing and happy Hagi here to stay. Give it time mate!

02 Jul 2020 16:18:45
Theswagman, you're referring to jermain defoe the 38 year old striker mate. I've got no doubt at all that defoe will play a big part this season in regards to winning the league or not. Yes he'll more than likely do most of his stuff coming from the bench, but what a goalscorer to bring on, to pull you out a hole. Even though he's about to turn 38 later on this year, he's still a very fit guy and is easily the most natural/ best finisher in scottish football! 👌For the record after my wee rant about defoe, i'm not worried about the lack of transfer activity so far, as you put it mate, as i'm very confident gerrard will sign a few class acts, that will make the difference to our starting 11.Patience pal, as there's plenty of time!

02 Jul 2020 16:27:16
68 - where does this trust in our management team come from after two failed seasons and the signings of Ejaria, McAuley, Flanagan, Lafferty, Sadiq, Ojo, Grezda, Coulibaly, Worral, Firth, Jones, Barker.?

Did they have us “in the best possible shape” the last two seasons with those signings?

We are honestly deluded, it’s like a Steven Gerrard cult.

02 Jul 2020 16:28:45
Tupac - yes I have seen a lot of him, he played for Hearts, I watch all the goals programmes on Sky so I see all the League One goals, and he’s had 2 Scotland caps. He’s hardly a mystery man from Eastern Europe.

The young English player route we’ve gone down plenty times as a club over the years, I don’t remember Dodoo, Windass, Aribo, Ejaria, Rossiter or even Kent (bar one 3 month period which convinced us to waste £7m) tearing it up.

I don’t need to hear Halliday defending his pals, I’ve seen them play with my own eyes for years.

02 Jul 2020 17:25:11
It's been a while but thewagsman is back to his usual negativity. Moaning about our transfer activity and it's the 2nd July 🤔
Let's wait and see who we sign before throwing in the towel?

02 Jul 2020 17:25:58
Swagman for years you’ve come on here with the scatter gun we get it you hate Gerrard it’s personal with you it’s too vociferous you were banned rightly so for an OTT. Post now your back same again so why don’t you give us solution your manager wish your signing wishes within reason it’s never ending with you So we wait with baited breath for the golden nuggets from you.

02 Jul 2020 18:14:22
I didn’t realise Wagman had been banned and have to admit he hasn’t been missed! I am open to all opinions but the dislike to our current Management is where we are with him and he wants them to fail🙃🇬🇧.

02 Jul 2020 19:18:38
Opinion of an Awful player, nice.

02 Jul 2020 19:38:45

Why should you take Andy Hallidays word for Tavernier and Goldson? Surely if you watch Rangers regularly you have formed your own opinion on them?

02 Jul 2020 21:27:11
@swagman I personally try and watch a lot of football not just rangers and I’ve seen a decent amount of McLaughlin (the gk) for Sunderland and he is better than foderingham and alnwick. Defoe being signed is great news as I believe he will stay with us after retirement also. Hagi has the ability IF played in his best position and I can’t say a lot about the young boy other than we beat some decent sides to him. It’s July 2nd give the club some time to bring people in before declaring it an all out emergency.

02 Jul 2020 23:32:12
I noticed Defoe’s legs were gone at times last season. Having played way past Defoe’s age I know what I’m talking about, when you reach that age the legs just can’t do what the brain wants, it’s frustrating, vey frustrating, but the signs were there last year for sure. Not saying he can’t still do us a turn, only that when the legs are gone and you don’t have that sharpness you are not the same player.

03 Jul 2020 01:06:35
Swagman, I am definitely not deluded. Some players work out, others don’t. Rangers have had a huge rebuilding process to undergo since Gerrard and his team arrived. Gerrard has not had lots of money to rebuild. He has had to move on a lot of players. Some players he has had to keep until their contract expires because no-one is willing to buy them from us. He has had to bolster the squad with loans and it is a risk.

I accept that some of the players he has brought in haven’t worked out. However he has brought in potential like Aribo and Hagi and these guys will come good and make us lots of money in the future. I suppose the bottom line is I believe in those that are leading and managing Rangers and you obviously don’t.

03 Jul 2020 01:26:52
SGL / Muppet. My understanding is that Defoe adds so much off the field, particularly if you are a striker. Learning from someone of his quality will benefit the team hugely and that is what he offers.

03 Jul 2020 09:46:08
I have my own opinion Biff316.
And currently, Goldson along with Helander would be in my opinion the best CH pairing at the club. 👍
The other 2 are still young and naive at times as was shown after the winter break when individual errors cost us. And I don't see us buying another CH this summer.
As for Tav, he's been made captain and I'll support any Rangers captain.
Again I don't see us buying another RB. One thing about Tav us he never hides. And I've stated many times, Rangers sides in the past had leaders all over the park. So when things were going wrong after the winter break where were your Jack's, Davis etc to drive the team on?

03 Jul 2020 10:00:52
68 I agree I’m sure he has loads of experience and advice to offer and will help the younger players so much and is great to have around just saying his legs are going and he cannot perform as he once did. Phenomenal player in his day.

03 Jul 2020 11:41:46
A wee message for you Theswagman.
Get behind gerrard, the management team and the players like we all should/ must do and stop the ANTHILL MOB from getting 9.75 in a row. We need everyone connected with the famous to be singing from the same hymn sheet, in this upcoming penultimate season!

I'll reiterate what i've said on here for a good while now. Gerrard has definitely improved us and if we can cut out the stupid dropped points against the so called lesser teams, i truly believe that gerrard will win the league as rangers manager and this season coming! Ignore the noise from breeze block boulevard, because we're honestly not far away here and they know it!
