Welcome Greg Stewart

Don't really get the problem.

He's a low cost punt who'll most likely be a squad player and has done well in the league previously.

If we get to the end of the window and the likes of Jones, Stewart and Hasite are our marquee signings then I'd be worried but I don't believe they will be.

A lot writing the guy off before he's even kicked a ball for us. Reckon he'll be a sqaud player myself, but he'll provide a different option in attack. We lacked that last season at times. 

If by the end of the window these are the key signings then we'll have every right to be pissed and asking questions of the club. 

I reckon we will see some quality/marquee signings in before the window shuts.

Jones was signed in December and I’d forgotten about Steven Davis.

Stewart is a forward and so is Lafferty, just because they have different styles doesn’t mean they play different positions. 

Correct, but they do.

Why are you trying so hard to make that sound like a bad goal? he's ran 60 yards n dinked the keeper. no matter what level you're at it's a very very good goal.

I’m not trying to make it sound like a bad goal though am I? It’s a good finish but do you think any player that plays for us is getting the space and freedom that he did there to do that?

Yes.

People said that when we signed MOH too and he could barely get any space to run into because every team packed 10 men behind the ball.

Jordan Jones is going to face the same issue IMO.

MOH could barely get any space because he was shite and running like a headless chicken was his only strength.

Stewart and Jones have far more technical ability than that cunt.

Stewart isn't a striker.

MOH was just a tarrier version of Gregg Wylde. It was plain to see that would never work out. Still baffled by the decision to sign him to this day :confused:

I wouldn’t put Stewart in that category though because: 1. he’s not a rabid bheast and 2. he has some technical footballing attributes. He doesn’t necessarily need acres of space to be effective - he’s quite neat and tidy from what I’ve seen.

It's maybe a 20 second clip. are you saying that there has been no one in SPFL games for us this season that has had that space for 20 seconds?

Of course I’m not saying that but generally speaking games involving us are nowhere near as open as that. It’s a different game entirely when you are playing for us.

At the end of the day cute little gifs of him scoring a great goal doesn’t really tell us the whole story, just like YouTube videos don’t, because nobody is going to make videos highlight a players bad points are they?

From what I’ve seen of him, Stewart has talent and he will probably be fine as a squad player but I think he’s 1) too much of a luxury player and 2) lacks the mentality to become anything more than that for us.

I'd hope (given that he supports us and wanting to prove that he belongs with us) that he would turn up to pre-season in absolute tip-top shape and proves a fair proportion of our support wrong (like Kamara has).

What is he then?

Winger/number 10. Spent most of his career playing off the right where he has been average to poor. Had a good 6 months with Killie off the front.

So many knee jerk reactions. Youd have thought the signing of Greg Stewart had guaranteed celtic 10 in a row. The window has barely been open. I trust Gerrard knows what he is doing. 

This. The comments from Rangers fans on Instagram when the club announced the signing was embarrassing with every second person spouting pish like 'announce Kent' and 'that's not how you spell Kent'. 

Really hope Greg does well for us.

His best position is as a striker.

When has he ever played as a striker? 

Must have been for Cowdenbeath cos he never played there for Dundee, Birmingham, Kilmarnock or Aberdeen.

“I’d play him off a front player because he can open defences up and score. For me he has more than enough ability. I know he is as good as anybody on his day.

But he can also play in the wider area and he will offer Rangers good versatility. He has scored over 45 goals in his spells at Dundee, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen.

I don’t think that’s a bad return because he’s not a No. 9.”

Paul Hartley (I know, I knows) thoughts on his position and he’s the manager who’s got the most consistent form out of him in his career so far.

If Stewart is meant to exemplify the intention to obtain quality in preference to quantity then it is, imo, not a conclusion I would be reaching.    on 16 May - barely a month ago - Allen and Gerrard asserted to us that signings were to be about quality.    None so far, imo, are in the bracket of signalling an improvement in quality.   Clearly there is a way to go yet in the transfer window and doubtless players will also be transferred out so those coming in may help as squad replacements...…...but by no stretch of any imagination I can muster up are the signings of Stewart, Jones and Hastie an improvement on quality.

If those are the sorts of signings Gerrard is hoping will be enough to shift into higher gears and actually win trophies next season then its an admirable level of optimism.   There must surely be other signings who arrive who, when allowance is made for any players who depart, lead to a plain and readily defensible conclusion that the quality of the squad has been improved.    Right now there is no improvement imo but final view is reserved until the summer transfer window closes and we see which other players arrive (and which players depart).
