He's been our best defender this season without a shadow of a doubt. He handled Dembele well on Sunday and he also done well against him at the Hampden game I thought. I mention MD because he's likely the best striker (lol) he'll come up against in the SPL. I'm not being taigy, I'm just being real. But he hardly runs Hill ragged, does he? 

So, my question is - Would you like Hill for one more season? Or would you rather Pedro built a new defence?

I quite like the idea of Clint and a younger, quicker CB next to him. And maybe a new right-back as well.

Another Weir-Cuellar type pairing would be fantastic for us. But then again, buying two new - possibly better - centre-backs sounds good as well.

What do you think?

I'd give him another year tbh. 

It looks likely that we'll have a big turnover of players this summer, so we're as well hanging on to guys like Hill.

I'd give him another year, he's been our best defender and he's had an effect on the defenders we currently have.

Preferably not. Nothing against him but we need to be looking forward.

I'd have him as third or fourth choice though.

Do a fucking poll.

I do polls all the time, man. I don't want to be known as the "Poll Guy" 

Just a discussion will do for now

Btw when you used to skelp my arse on a winter's morning, it'd make me feel sick and like I was going to die

No. 

Hes not the worst defender I've ever seen but he looks slightly better than what he is imo because Wilson, Senderos and Kiernan are so bad.

Hes been a decent signing overall and I've seen a lot worse even in better Rangers teams but we can't let the emotion of Sunday cloud our judgements - most of the fans made this same mistake last time we got a result against them and thought Halliday, Holt etc were better than what we were

We need big investment and big improvements on almost every player we've got. We can't lose track of that.

Fair post KAI

Will be interesting to see how Pedro sees our current players. I mean he did just say we have the best squad in Scotland, which was quite worrying.

If we don't buy two new CB's then at least we might have Hill to fall back on. Hope to god Kiernan, Senderos and Wilson are long gone next season

If we can afford to bring in 4 central defenders, then great, but if we can only get 3 then Hill would be the one I'd keep.

Regardless, he should be a backup at best.

He said the squad need to believe they're the best and it's all about confidence.

Learn some reading comprehension.

I would not want him as a number one pick, but maybe give him one more year in the squad for injuries and passing on his experience to the younger players. If it had to be yes or no, I would go for no. :no:

Question: What would you need to challenge Celtic

Answer: Isn't an answer I can give you to you right now cause right now, I can't change a thing. This is the squad, and really trusting the players we have right now. As I told you from the beginning, for us, this is the best squad in Scotland. So we are going to work with the best squad in scotland. We just need to give them that confidence.

 

tut tut you been reading the daily rhag gaz? :pipe:

I would give him another year. The squad needs a huge overhaul and if we've not got lots of funds for next season (which I suspect we won't), then we'll need to salvage the best of what we have. CH could easily manage another season in the spl. Even if we have the money to get 2 quality CB's, he would still be good reliable cover.

I'm sure Clint came here thinking he was a squad player and back up ( which is how he started the season) and is probably pleased and surprised to get so many games - I for one welcome the contribution he has made this season. I suspect ( expect)the centre backs to be strengthened but if we keep him in the squad as back up for another year I don't think Clint would have any issues with that.

He's our best CH, I'd prefer to get rid of the other 3 first.

I'd also wait till end of season to see how his fitness is and how he feels about another pre season.

I kind of think ideally not but he's the least of our worries.

Nah.

If we want to challenge for the title we need a centre back pairing much better than any of the ones we currently have.

I think that we will see a big influx of foreign players who will be cheap and better than what we have.

They will be itching to come to a big club like Rangers and I am sure that Pedro has built up a lot of contacts abroad.

Exciting times? fingers crossed!

No too slow at the back and average at best, if we want to win things we have to have better players.

I'd say if we had serious funds then no, but given we can't expect to get in 4 solid Central defenders I'd give him another year.

Yes but only as a 4th choice, we need someone with his experience around the club to help the younger players, we should be bringing in at least 3 CBs this summer so Hill as a backup to them wouldn't be terrible
