Anyone else notice at our throw ins in the last quarter Hill was standing at the front post. Drawing defenders to mark him and therefore allowing us to lump the ball into the box without being offside. 

Nice to see if we get anywhere with it but it looks kinda sensible to take advantage of not being offside from a throw in.

Didnt notice but did hear big Pedro say 40% of goals are from set pieces. So i expect attacking and defending them will play a big part in our preparations now

Aye I saw Pedro shouting at him and Wilson in the first half to get in the box when we had a throw in

I like that we're finally using our fullbacks ability to take long throw ins, I remember an interview Tav did not long after joining where he apologised for throwing one Long into the box and said he'd never do it again because it wasn't how Warburton wanted us to play. That's stupid as fuck imo, Warburton had no real knowledge of how the game should be played, his game management was non existent and that's why he'll forever be a failure

Yup.

Made far more sense to him to have a throw in near their box launched to our full back or centre half then played back to Wes.

Great for the possession stat that was, not so much the goals one though.

I like the tactics but it's got nothing to do with offside. You can't be offside  if receiiving the ball directly from a throw-in, goal kick or corner no matter your position on the pitch

It seemed more to do with dragging players out of position.  Normally the centre backs are dangerous from set plays so he is likely to drag a few out of position.  Just wish we had the forwards to bury the chances we make.

Had Warburton been in charge yesterday, we may have still won but we'd have conceded and scraped by. 

Next match can't come quick enough now, yesterday was great. But I want to see how we deal with better quality than Hamilton, sheep shaggers away is the real test.

Wasn't at the game and didn't manage to see it either but when I went out last night was speaking to 2 mates who are notoriously difficult to please when it comes to Rangers and whilst they acknowledge it was only Hamilton at Ibrox and potentially new manager syndrome they enjoyed our possession, pressure, passing based game. 

It's far too early to get carried away but it's a damn good start. It's OK saying it's only Hamilton but all season we've struggled against the Hamilton's of the league and basically all the league, generally.

It's pleasing getting a good solid win like that, with not another game for 2-weeks with it being international break so it's good going into the break with a nice result.

@dougie_analysis: If you want an idea of Rangers' pressing yesterday, it was over 4 minutes before two Hamilton outfield players completed a single pass

I don't know why people are telling you that you can't be offside from a throw-in, as you clearly mention it. But why do you say "therefore allowing us to lump the ball into the box without being offside" if you know we can't be offside from a throw? It's a bit confusing.

It's not my fault folks can't read contextual grammar.

Aye. What the fuck was that. If a linesman doesn't know you can't be offside in your own half they need fucking fired

At any throw in within 30/35 yards of our opponents goal we should have a player right in front of their goalie, or on the goal line & as you cant be offside from a throw in it means the opposition need to bring a man back to mark him. I think that this would then create more space as we can push further forward without being offside.
