    HKFC Soccer Sevens

    Squad for the Hong Kong soccer sevens have flown out: Aidan McAdams, Andy Dallas, Scott Gray, Jack Thomson, Jamie Barjonas, Cammy Palmer, Jordan Houston, Stephen Kelly, Kyle Bradley, Liam Burt. https://Rangers.co.uk/news/academy-news/gers-jet-off-to-hong-kong/ A SELECT group from the Rangers Development Squad will fly to Hong Kong today to take part in the HKFC Soccer Sevens. The youngsters kick-off their tournament in the group stages on Saturday, taking on Newcastle Jets, Newcastle United and Hong Kong Football Club. The knockout stages take place on Sunday. The likes of Aston Villa, West Ham United and Italian side Cagliari are also taking part, along with the reigning champions Leicester City. While Premier League Brighton and Hove Albion are making their debut in the competition. The Development Squad were knocked out by eventual winners Leicester at the semi-final stage last year. But after a successful first season playing in their Games Programme, Head of Academy Craig Mulholland is excited to see what his youngsters can do. The Gers were runners up in both 2009 and 2010. Speaking to RangersTV ahead of the trip Mulholland said: “We have been the last few years now and first and foremost there is a huge Rangers fan base out in Hong Kong. “People realise the size of the club and the number of supporters who come along to the Hong Kong football club to see us is great. “The boys have had a great season and they are really looking forward to going out there. Culturally for them to go and see a different city like that is great for them but as a football experience the games are quite different as well. “It is seven v seven, 18 yards to 18 yards and if you get a draw at the end of the game they take it down to four v four, 18 yards to 18 yards. “In that heat and humidity it is really demanding for the players. It is against top opposition and it is a great experience for them. “We were down playing Leicester a few weeks ago and they are taking their Under 23 group, as well as some fringe first-team players so it is really competitive. “Last year we got to the semi-finals against Leicester and we were unlucky not to get through to the final.” It will be Rangers first trip to the tournament since the implementation of the club’s Games Programme. This season they have faced sides from across Europe and the Premier League and Mulholland thinks that should mean this squad fare better.‘ We’ll post links to all the Development Squad’s games right here on Rangers.co.uk He continued: “There are two aspects to this, one how much we have progressed against those sides we took on last year and we will look to get further and get to the final. “And two, there has been a real change this year with the Games Programme so when we played foreign opposition before and English Premier League opposition you could see there was a little bit of an inferiority complex from the Scottish lads. “I think by playing so many times this year against top teams from different countries we have overcome that. “An example would be that we are really disappointed to lose 3-2 to Manchester United and of course people are saying it is good we have got to that because losing by the odd goal to Manchester United is something we don’t expect. “I think the results against the likes of Manchester City, Feyenoord, Leicester City, AK Athens and Bayern Munich has taken away any inhibitions the boys have in terms of playing quality opposition.” Best of luck to them, hopefully it’s on YouTube again to see how they get on

    Harry Wilson (Liverpool)

    sure thing?

    Harry Wilson (Liverpool)

    2018 the year of the no-brainer.

    Out?: Andy Halliday

    Anyone thinking Halliday might return to Livingston now they’ve won promotion?
  7. NeoGeo7

    Kyle Bartley (Swansea)

    I get the feeling it will be both. Gerrard has played 3-5-2 and 3-4-3 with the Liverpool U18s so we could see it at some stage here as well.

    Out?: Josh Windass

    Ok who wants to buy Holt for £3m? We need to clear out as much as we can and generate as much income as we can from those sales. Windass’ attitude is honking and anyone with a brain cell can hear what Gerrard is looking for in a player and realise that windass is about as far from that as possible. I get what you are saying in that it’s better to get rid of the players that offer the least and windass’ return of goals and assists were a good contribution over Dorrans who, even taking the injury into account, offered very little. We aren’t however in a position to offload just the ones who won’t get much of a fee as Gerrard will be looking to use the funds from the players in demand to get his own players in. Wes is a decent keeper but if we sell him for £3m and we still have Alnwick in reserve with a free transfer in McGregor being first choice for a couple of seasons then that gives the manager funds to strengthen other areas. Windass is replaceable and I honestly think you’ll get as much from Murphy playing central and Arfield on the left as you would from having Murphy on the left and windass through the middle. Character is a big thing about this appointment and the players brought in. Just look at Skrtel when he had a horror head wound and refused to be subbed after he had it stitched up... Can you see windass doing that? Would Halliday, Holt or Dorrans to quote the other names you mentioned about getting rid of before Windass. Most likely not which is why we need a clear out but I’m certain there is a bigger chance of Halliday or Holt showing that kind of determination even if they don’t contribute as many goals or assists. Also those 3 players don’t post stupid Instagram/twitter messages that they should know better not to do.
  9. Always remember the home match against dundee Utd (ain’t karma a bitch) with him and Scott Wilson at centre back and it was horrendous, lost 2-0 and konterman was at fault for both. Let Steven Thompson ahead of him for a header then did some crazy karate kid type clearance attempt, missed and they scored the second (also remember that game well for fabrice Fernandez crashing one off the bar)

    Welcome Back Allan Mcgregor

    Direct quote from Gerrard:
  11. Overall I’d agree but.....
  12. NeoGeo7

    Lucas Leiva (Lazio)

    Totally agree. Been said many times to get a strong (physically and mentally) core to the team sorted that can be relied upon and trusted the start adding creative players that can make a difference. We have to remember we were the top scorers in the league and whilst in many games of late we seemed to lack that cutting edge its not our main issue. i think we’ll see attacking players on loan from Liverpool’s youth team just as we did with Man City and Weiss........that turned out ok.

    Lucas Leiva (Lazio)

    Give it some time mate, Gerrard hasn’t even started working for us yet but he’s on the phone with Allen daily according to Allen. No doubt in my mind that Arfield and McGregor are due to them being out of contract and needing to act upon it. No players under 29 years old announced so far but the season only ended on Sunday. im confident they know they need a blend of expierience and youthful energy but both need to have the right mentality to fit in with us.
  14. NeoGeo7

    Lucas Leiva (Lazio)

    You’re right and for that we need established players that Gerrard can actually rely on and younger players. If we sign Goldson, Burke and Skrtel that’s one young, one mid twenties and one over 30. Midfield we have a lot of players at the moment but some good talent coming through. Up top we sign one over 30 and then a mid twenties striker and we’re getting the blend right.
  15. He was ill and came off the bench to bag a brace
  16. Always remember how excited I was about signing kanchelskis but it never really worked out that well. Also gui’varch and salenko. In the last few years definitely Alves. Mols never really meant that much to me when he signed but was out of this world. Going further back Rod Wallace.

    Welcome Back Allan Mcgregor

    But look how it ended for McCulloch. People ended up resenting him because he just couldn’t cut it anymore and started playing in centre back (McCoists fault for still playing him). Wallace definitely regressed as a result of sticking with us and although he’s not up to it anymore (in my eyes) it’s a shame that it’s going to end on a sour note for him too. These guys didn’t volunteer as they still got paid well but at the same time they could have refused to TUPE and get a move elsewhere. Mcculloch was older and not likely to be in the Scotland squad bu Wallace could have been. Whittaker, Naismith, mcGregor and Lafferty were all in their nations national squad at the time IIRC therefore it’s perhaps easier to understand but at the same time still unforgivable. The press conference really is what sets Whittaker and Naismith apart from McGregor, Lafferty and Davis but it doesn’t mean we welcome them with open arms. He’ll need to earn our trust and respect and those are hard to earn and easy to piss away as they all did in 2012.

    Welcome Back Allan Mcgregor

    He’s very excited to be back, once he learned we were interested it was a, wait for it, no-brainer. He made no mention of the circumstances when leaving nor was asked about it since it’s an RTV interview. The one thing he said that stuck out was that he wants to help out the club I a]no any way he can. For me that implies he wants to make amends without actually saying it. As I said he could have stayed with Hull, where he just won player of the year, and no doubt be paid more than being here or gone to Leeds and have the same sort of money but he chose to come home. He’ll have to work hard to win anyone over but that bodes well for us and I can see it being one of those difficult decisions to make that is done for the greater good.

    Welcome Back Allan Mcgregor

    He had a good thing going for himself at Hull, he could have gone to Leeds and yet he has chosen to come back here even though he knows it won’t be universally accepted never mind endorsed. This shows he has one thing in abundance......character. We need leaders and winners on and off the park and whether you agree with what he chose back in 2012 and whether you forgive him or not he’ll add to the squad both in ability and character. He knows he’ll have to perform well to win anyone over and he obviously wants to redeem himself so let him and if he succeeds then we all win, if he doesn’t then it’s just like any other failed signing with the exception he has the history of 2012.

    Allan McGregor (Hull)

    Hopefully this goes through and we sell Wes for a decent fee. Alnwick has shown he’s capable of being the understudy to someone like McGregor and while Wes has his good points his flaws are all too obvious with the number of long range goals conceded and his lack of presence in the box.
  21. NeoGeo7

    We have them rattled 😀

    I think there is an element of them being worried we are getting things in place and given they have seven and not nine titles in a row they know there’s a chance of their arses collapsing. However, this particular barrage is a well timed deflection tactic as many have already said. It sickens me that rather than be honest human beings (the irony) and putting their hands up and putting the offenders to shame they want to try and sweep it under the rug and then use their influence in the country to try and slur our club when we did what was right. He was sacked and police reported.

    Club statement on Sfa nonsense.

    If we win the league they’ll probably try to get points deducted for something
  23. NeoGeo7

    Our players hanging about with Scott Allan in Dubai..

    We need to adopt a siege mentality to win the league again. Being all pally with some cunt that tried to do one of us rather than sticking the nut on him during the game is exactly why we are fucked when we take on the scum before the first whistle goes. The sooner the posers are out of the club the better. If you want to be a real Ranger, a winner then welcome to the club if not the thanks but no thanks, there’s the door.
