  1. No but we would need to win our last game and would also be looking for a result in the other match.
  2. You could also include 500k in for Waghorn as well so that's another half a million.
  3. "God Save the Queen" isn't to do with independence, but whether the country is Royalist or Republican. Apparently SNP would retain the Queen as head of state in the event of independence. On the other hand I think the campaigning to move to a Republic would begin as soon as independence was achieved (which it won't as far as I'm concerned). Saying that we shouldn't be having to listen to this type of campaigning for independence anyway. The country clearly voted no and this was meant to be a once in a generation thing. The people's choice should be respected. I don't want to have to go through another 2 years of listening to their shite again in the build up to anot her ref. Lastly, can you believe in independence and support Rangers? In my opinion yes. At the end of the day it's all about loving the club first and foremost. However, Rangers fans that do this have to realise that they are promoting a viewpoint that will ultimately affect both our society and our football club for the worse. We have seen exactly how we are treated by certain groups within Scotland. These people will have more power within an independent Scotland. So for me independence is something that is completely at odds with protecting the future of our club.
  4. Not what I heard mate. He made a choice between 3 English clubs and us. The English clubs included Villa and Everton I think. It was in the documentary on Channel 4 called Waiting for Gascoigne. Follows the season from him deciding to go to us right through to winning the title. I think it was only ever released on VHS around that time.
  5. All the games will be sold out I would have thought. It's different this time as it's our first year back in Europe in 8 years (qualifiers not included obviously).
  6. Embarrassment? Not for me. 3 away games in the league including Aberdeen and the piggery as well as 8 qualifiers with 4 long distance trips. And with a team that have barely had a chance to play together. 1 poor defensive performance and 1 poor performance out of 13 competitive matches is what we've had. This team ARE capable of being a success. Our manager will learn, our players will learn and our team will get better. We now dust ourselves down, and start getting the league wins under our belt (which we will do). We all need to be behind this. I'm with them all the way.
  7. In 2nd half I would have went 4-5-1 and pushed Tav forward, Flanagan to right back and dropped a striker into midfield. With a 5 midfield we wouldnt have ended up sitting so deep and inviting Motherwell on. But it's easy saying that with hindsight.
  8. Not true in my opinion they are playing decent. Pace of the game is very fast. I would revert to 4-4-2 and try and slow the game down. Once the game settles, we should be good enough to start dominating like we have done and win it. Keep it the way it is and we run the risk of losing another goal. Although Motherwell are certainly starting to look less like scoring again now.
  9. Pretty much spot on except for Docherty who has not had a real chance to show. Edit: Jack as well. I reckon Fod will probably leave and reckon we would get an ok transfer fee as well. If he stays then Alnwick will proably be loaned out. As for Dodoo, I wish him all the best. Hopefully he does well.
  10. Yeah the club and the team that it puts out on the park is what we all support. The club was formed in 1872. Companies are just companies.
  11. The Rangers International Football Club PLC is a holding company. The Rangers Football Club Ltd is the operating company (or owner). The Club (Rangers Football Club) is owned and operated by The Rangers Football Club LTD, which, in turn, is a subsidiary of The Rangers International Football Club PLC
  12. The club name has been "Rangers FC" for a long time, I believe since our formation in 1872. The club has at times been known as "The Rangers" as well, likely due to the fact the company names have always been "The Rangers Football Club". However there is a distinction between the company and club names as they are separate entities. The operating company owns and runs the football club.
  13. Club name: Rangers FC Aka: Rangers, The Rangers, The Rangers FC, Glasgow Rangers. Company names: The Rangers Football Club Ltd; The Rangers Football Club Plc
  14. I've got no problem with criticism of Murty. It's the vitriol I see as the problem. Its shows me that a lot of anger that should have been directed at the board is directed at Murty, which is what the board were hoping for.
  15. Cannot understand the amount of crap directed at Murty. This is exactly what the board were hoping you would do. So they can see the attention diverted away from their own failings.
  16. 100%. Out of the board, manager and players I'd say the manager is the least to blame for this shambles.
  17. We haven't finished 4th. No reason we can't finish the season strongly and get 2nd. It's all ifs at the moment. Same with the Cup. I'm definitely not saying Murty is the man to take us forward. I just think he deserves a bit more credit than he gets on here at times.
  18. I wouldn't say it's a myth as the stats clearly back up the improvement from last year. Win ratios: Murty (2018 so far) = 69% Murty (Overall This Season) = 67% Walter Smith = 63% Murty (First half of this season) = 58% Pedro Caixinha = 54% Murty 1st spell (Last season) = 50% Kenny McDowell = 30% Just because there is a lack of consistency doesn't mean there hasn't been improvement. I see a lot of the current consistency problems being our defense and I don't think a lot of that has been Murty's fault. People are also comparing Murty who has a win ratio of 67% to McDowell who achieved 30% by winning 3 matches out of 10. To liken them is totally unfair on Murty.
  19. Whatever you think of individual results his overall record since he took over from Caixinha is good. His stats reflect that and show its unfair to say he hasn't done well. The comparisons with McDowell are nonsense. McDowell's team were in free fall. Murty's team have improved dramatically since he took over. Most of the issues with the last few games have been losing goals through our defence. How much of that is Murty's fault? He's never been able to pair 2 defenders together for a run of games. 2 of them were Caixinha's signings. Bates and McCrorie have been injured. The defence is not settled and you can't blame Murty for 2 experienced defenders gifting other teams goals from indiviual mistakes. You could say well Murty signed Martin but you could also say Mark Allen signed Martin. I'm unhappy about the last 3 results and I don't think he will be the guy to take us the next step but he still deserves credit for what he's done with the team.
  20. Even if we replace him with worse?
  21. "Murty can go back to the youth setup". He deserves a bit more respect than that. He's done well considering the circumstances. He ain't going back to our youth setup. He's done well enough to get a job managing a first team. Might not be with us but he will managing a first team somewhere after the summer.
  22. They had no competition because they were financially too far ahead of the others. That gap is made bigger with CL revenue and player sales. Take those 2 things away the gap is less and an 'upset' in the league might have been a possibility.
  23. The 3 years they didn't qualify for champions league they sold a player to cover their shortfall. It is a reason but definitely not the only reason.
  24. There is still a big difference though. For me it matters what games we get points in. If you beat the stronger teams it is a sign the team are capable of getting results in any match. If it was reversed, and we are not beating those stronger team it's a sign we are not up to the challenge. I would seriously give Murty the benefit of the doubt on the 3 defeats. For me there is an attitude problem with the players and it shows in what they see as being the "easier matches". It's Murty's job to get that sorted and eliminate the silly results. If you look at the points situation then Murty has achieved the same number of points in his 9 matches as both McInnes and Rodgers have in their last 9.
