    Welcome To Ibrox Jones + Kamara

    There are no other big teams in Scotland.

    Welcome To Ibrox Jones + Kamara

    Go back to my assessment of Pena and Herrera. Or Barton. Or shagger and barasic.... Morelos and Arfield proving me wrong but not always incorrect. Morelos still doesn’t score enough against the big teams but clearly is showing he’s not far off the finished article. Glad you’re keeping tabs though 👍🏼

    Welcome To Ibrox Jones + Kamara

    Wilkie is a complete lemon. Kamara is an excellent player. He walks into our side. Jack, Halliday, Coulibaly and rossiter couldn’t hold a candle to him. Arfield the obvious choice at #10. We are definitely stronger for this signing. Jones will contribute, Defoe (depends on how age has affected him - not seen anything of him in over a year so cannot judge).

    Welcome To Ibrox Jones + Kamara

    Kamara walks into any midfield in the league. I genuinely believe he contributes more in the next couple of seasons than any other signing. Mark my words.

    Shankland

    Worth signing and trying out. The cost makes it a no lose situation. Why sign a goal scorer and get him to fuck when we need another goal scorer? 🧐 come on Chris see sense 😂

    Ryan Hardie?

    He might not be our level, he might be. He needs to be here developing and stepping in when Alfredo is banned and lafferty plays pish as usual. We should be developing the Hardie’s, Mccrories etc rather than Liverpool’s U23s. At least there is a huge benefit to it. Nobody can say (with the exception of Kent at times) we have been improved by any of the loan signings. Hardie is a boy that could grow and go on to be a top striker dedicated to the bears. Even Alfredo has an expiration date in the next 24months. He goes somewhere else and we are at a loss. Probable less than 24 months. The tarriers have their own boys coming through who have spent years around their 1st team and aren’t leaving anytime soon. We also have quality youngsters and they should be around our first team.

    Pena

    He’s neither. He’s been bombed out of Mexico, teams publicly reassuring fans they aren’t after him tells its own story. get him as far to fuck as physically possible.

    Shankland

    When he’s banged in 20/30 in the spfl and the sheep are selling him for £7/8m (which they are holding out for McKenna) it will be seen as an opportunity missed. Or the tarriers/Swansea where ever. Good strikers score goals at any level. Nobody can tell me he couldn’t get a very good goal return at SPFL level - which we need btw.

    Poor wee Leigh Griffith's

    Allegedly a suicide attempt at an Edinburgh train station after burning through thousands at a casino. Not good. He’s a wee prick but I don’t wish that on him at all. Hope he gets better.

    SG straight up the tunnel?

    He did. He was the difference in Istanbul and also at olympiakos - my point is he’s went out far more cup competitions than he’s won. He shouldn’t act as if this is a ‘new low’ we werwnt good enough but we still have several players that are young and/or new to the club
  12. Hutton2008

    Morelos

    I’d like to see him up front with a decent big striker (not Lafferty)
  13. Hutton2008

    SG straight up the tunnel?

    Let’s be fair. He spent most of his career getting pumped out of cup competitions. Aye he was a great player, leader captain but he’s experienced more pain than glory. It’s a fact. Applaud the 10k fans who spent their hard earned cash to be there and were a credit to football through ought the 90mins. Or at least acknowledge them. Not a good look.

    Kent - Out for Rapid Clash

    As the title states. With a run of games he really started to find form before initial injury. Hope it doesn’t take too long for him to recapture it. He will be a miss but this is what creates legends and Middleton will have to take his opportunity
  15. Daily rhag and strachan so expect the pro taig propaganda. Gordon Strachan believes Rangers is too big for players such as Alfredo Morelos. Steven Gerrard is struggling with a disciplinary problem this season with his side being hit with eight red cards – the worst record in the Scottish Premiership. And former Scotland and celtic manager Strachan insists the bad boy behaviour is down to players failing to handle being at a club the size of Rangers. He points to the fact Morelos was never sent off while at HJK Helsinki but has been red-carded three times in this campaign, although one was rescinded. Writing in his Paddy Power column Strachan, who insisted celtic are still two years ahead of their rivals, said: "A lot of Rangers’ signings have come from non-competitive games in the reserves, or at teams that haven’t had to compete, never a team like Rangers. So it comes as a shock when you arrive in Glasgow. Morelos has been shown three red cards this season(Image: Getty Images) "It takes a while to get used to this 24-hour demand for success, where you have to win everything. The first few months are difficult, that’s why it’s handy to have players who have been there a while. At celtic, it was useful having players to indoctrinate the new boys in what it meant to play in an Old Firm. "And that’s where the disciplinary issues have come from. It’s people not understanding, being thrown into Rangersfrom a small league or under-23 level, and taking on the expectation of winning every game. It’s too much for them and they become too emotional. "So if the game’s running away from them, they’re so desperate to win that they cannot keep their emotions in check. The club, at the moment, is maybe too big for them to understand. "If you’ve got 50,000 people screaming that you win every tackle, you go in there jumping about and shouting your head off, you get sent off. "For some, petulance is a problem. If you look at Alfredo Morelos’s record at Helsinki, did he keep getting sent off there? No. It’s the fact he’s playing for Rangers, and it’s testing his mental strength, on and off the pitch. "It’s a real shock to people to go there, and maybe it’s too much for him. And he’s letting his team down. The fans might cheer him off, and the manager might support him publicly, but he’s knackering the team, and risking the result." Gerrard was fuming after the draw at Dundee(Image: SNS Group) Rangers dropped another two points in the draw at Dundee at the weekend – a performance that sparked fury from Gerrard. The Ibrox boss slammed his players as he warned them to improve or he will replace them. Strachan, though, doesn’t think that will prove easy as he dismissed the club’s recruitment as unimpressive. The 61-year-old added: "Who in the English Premier League would take any of Steven’s players at the moment? I don’t think there’d be a rush for them. But, for celtic’s squad, there’d be a scramble for one or two of them. Strachan is a fan of McGregor Callum McGregor won't leave celtic for anything less than 'crazy money' insists Craig Gordon "Rangers seem better suited to European fixtures. The ideas that Steven and Gary McAllister have in terms of playing football is more beneficial when you’re counter attacking. In Scotland, teams sit against you, and you need people to open them up. "That’s what celtic have got with Callum McGregor and James Forrest, someone who can beat two people. Rangers are doing all the right things, the club is trying to go in the right direction, but do they have the quality of celtic? No. "The final pass is a problem, James Tavernier is the only one I see just now who regularly makes assists. He’s got that bit of quality that’s a wee bit different. The question for Rangers is where do they get more of that quality? It’s not easy to find, and the recruitment has been less than impressive for Rangers. "Every transfer is a gamble. There are players in England on £500,000-a-week and they’re not successful, so there are no guarantees. And you have to gamble sometimes. So Steven is right – yes, he has to keep trying to find players. "I’m sure he’ll be looking at this youth team as well but, if there’s nothing there that’ll blow you away, you have to go into the market. There’s only so much coaching you can do, there’s a point where players can’t improve any more so you have to look elsewhere." Strachan accepts there is a challenge to celtic this season – but insisted Rangers remain years behind them. He said: "It’s great to have a title race in Scotland – Rangers could win the title, but I don’t think they will. celtic are still by far the best squad, who’ve been together a long time and know what’s needed, with individual players who can win games. "celtic are at least two years ahead of Rangers just now. But I’m sure Steven and Gary will bring them closer and closer – as long as it’s not too close, that’s all right with me."

    Kent - Out for Rapid Clash

    Hindsight is always 20/20

    it still sickens me!

    Pretty sure the bead rattlers, HIVs, the sheep could draw up a similar list and rue poor results and performances. Jambos will probably think they’d still be top if they never had an injury crisis.... moot point

    Who's been Gerrard star signing or could be

    I think that is a reach. They were linked and in talks even before Gerrard was in talks. He may well have wanted them - likely even - but they were always signing for us. De boer, mcinnes whoever else was linked would have been working with Arfield and McGregor if we had the misfortune of them managing us.

    Who's been Gerrard star signing or could be

    It is relevant because they were signing regardless. Crediting SG with the signings is disingenuous and trying to fit a narrative of how good SG is. i like SG and think he will continue to take us forward - but in now was is he responsible for signing Greggsy or Arfield. Mark Allen made those signings all day long

    Arfield and McGregor were signing before Gerrard was even a possibility

    Wee Chesney: Rangers to big for Morelos

    They can talk like that all they like. When we win it will have been from allegedly being behind them. We get consistent against the lesser teams and there really is a race. Doesn’t matter what happens on any given OF game. They don’t win leagues (often). It’s about finding a good level of consistency against the rest.

    Wee Chesney: Rangers to big for Morelos

    Exactly. He’s still a kid too. Still a lot of maturing to be done. Hopefully get a little smarter

    Wee Chesney: Rangers to big for Morelos

    Not for a second saying there was intended racism by the DM (although I wouldn’t put it past them) just saying they write to certain stereotypes when it involves sterling or lukaku etc but when it’s Phil Foden or someone similar they report with completely different context. Same on occasion with Jack, Morelos and others who get a reputation. I also agree Morelos shows immaturity that he will grow out of - hopefully - and that’s the point in the post. Chesney is right to point out a lot of the players we have wouldn’t have realised what life would be like and probably weren’t ready.

    Wee Chesney: Rangers to big for Morelos

    The media play a massive part in perceptions of fans and referees. Kinda Related - the whole racism saga down south involving Raheem Sterling and the Daily Mail is testament to this. Their reporting of other players doing exactly the same thing but headlines with a completely different context - alters or certainly affects perceptions

    Wee Chesney: Rangers to big for Morelos

    On Morelos i think he makes a valid point. It takes more than standard game time to develop a player in the Rangers mould. It’s the constant expectation and growing from that and it takes time.
