The Hivs score has been brought up a number of times tonight. WTF? When did it begin to matter what they do? And what the hell does it have to do with our performance? 😂

Exactly. Why are there so many pussies so concerned about what other teams are doing. Also saw some posts along the lines of 'the scum will be loving this'. Fuck them and who cares! New team, decent result. We have to build and improve on tonight. It's all about the Rangers, no one else!

We aren’t playing the same team. It is a ridiculous comparison IMO. And even if it was valid, what does it mean? Hibs are sharper after 1 match? 😂

Emm, they don't have the same three donkeys we have?!

Tav chasing the ball across the park and leaving right back exposed. They hit the bar by attacking down our right while Tav was playing right wing or something. He causes us defensive right sided problems time and time again. Maybe the stats show the goals we lose come from another area but I'll bet a good few of them started because we were being exposed on the right hand side.

Morelos missed at least 2 sitters in the 1st half. A main striker who can't head a ball. I like his pure effort but he's becoming indefensible.

Windass is just pish but did get into a position where he almost scored. I'd rather have someone more committed and creative like Middleton.

All 3 have got to improve.

The full team need to improve and yes our attackers need to be more clinical. Early doors though.

Middleton looked good but I've only seen him off the bench twice now - against tired legs. Hopefully he pushes on this season but I've seen this with numerous young players, Aird and Walsh coming to mind. Time will tell as it's early doors for him as well.

Utter pish.

Faroe Islands are 49th in the league coefficient, Macedonia are 33rd.

I repeat, NSI Runavik are part-time, Shkupi are full-time. 

It is an indisputable fact that Shkupi are better.

Chances galore. Not much changed with the sitters. Hopefully just the teething period

People watched the game and windass & morelos were the worst players on the pitch.

Windass was shite again and Morelos not far behind IMO. 

I cannot see them being starters or we are in trouble.

About what I expected for first competitive game. None of the signings shouted out quality and whilst a clean sheet that mob hardly bothered attacking when they had the ball. Return leg should be a good test and showcase the mental strength that Gerrard has hopefully instilled in them. Liked the comments from him just before the game about the players deserving to keep the jerseys after the bury game.

yes we won this time  . Did we not draw last year . It felt like one

Won 1-0. Kenny Miller goal in the first-half, but we couldn’t get the crucial second goal.

He’s fuckin light years ahead of Aird or Walsh.

SG saw it tonight. I’m sure he will be noting what action needs to be taken now. This should’ve been a win by 5 or 6.

It still baffles me that successive managers now refuse to actively go and attack teams using an attack minded formation. Why we need to end up with Jack and McCrorie as defensive midfielders against minnows like this lot at Ibrox is beyond me. Look what happens when you put a seriously attack minded player like Middletion on. We need to start pushing teams back and not try & counter attack. Also, an ounce of footballing ability wouldn't go a miss either. Too many passes or crosses into no one. Morelos and WIndass just run into folk like Sterling does.

Really who where worse than them?? Finishing is there job and they failed miserably tonight.

Hard to single anyone out. It was a completely expected mediocre early season performance from the entire team. 2-0 is a decent scoreline to take away. Lets not get carried away with what we watched tonight.

very poor despite the win, a total lack of invention or indeed any sign of a play maker, most disappointed and wondering about when we meet real opposition.

I believe we have a manager who isn't as daft as some of our most recent men in charge and will actually see where our problems lie and sort them out. Tonight we walked that fine line between success and failure AGAIN. Had we taken our chances 1st half we would all be singing a different song. Games like this will show if the manager is able to hack it.

Thought that myself when he took Windass off , you can only close your eyes so many times watching strikers like Windass and Morelos.

Got to laugh we are shit according to the mentalists on here..  One game it's all if we don't improve we are out.

Stop acting like tarriers and keep believing.

I believe they will... Except for Morelos and Tav.  They need to go.  Windass,  I might give a little more leeway to prove me wrong.

How many sitters did morelos miss against them but? He simply is not good enough.

I don't know mate. Is there an exact number.

If we're saying absolute sitters (not chances) I only really remember the shot which hit the post so one. He had a couple of headed chances in a few games but I wouldn't call them sitters.

Only what I remember. There's probably a glaring miss I've er missed so please refresh my memory.

I’m sorry, but I really can’t see the logic in pointing to their score as if it matters in the slightest. Should we buy the Hivs team, is that what folk are suggesting? 😀

Arfield almost certainly will. 

im not sure, I was thinking Rossiter, Coulibally and Ejaria will be the top 3 if everyone is fit.  Arfield being the next up for sure.  The boss made the point that Rossiter was showing up the best in Spain until the ankle knock.   And his description of Coulibally suggests that he will be the anchor in the middle of our midfield.

At half time I was still confident of a comfortable result but things changed in the second half, did we get worse or did they get better? A bit worrying.
