One of our most underrated players in the period since 2011/12. Always thought of him to Caixinha as Papac was to Le Guen. 

He was either shite or amazing, that's what his problem was. 

There are people saying we should have kept him, I though it was his decision to leave us?

I expect a few players who leave here will go on to rave reviews elsewhere where’s there’s less pressure, think the majority of the squad just don’t have the mental strength to play for us 

Most definitely.

Keep Morelos, Sell Barisic for a decent fee and replace with Barry Douglas, like for like and a good profit to spend on the rest of the squad.

RF and get Aribo into the 3 in the midfield! And play him there consistently and he will be like a new signing imo

Exactly what it is. And its exactly what the vast majority of this squad lack. All starts from the top and works it's way down, so starting with Gerrard and his management team, through the captain and vice captain then to the rest of the squad.

We wanted to keep him but he wanted guarantees of continuous first team football. So he left.

In hindsight, I'd far rather have had his name on the team sheet at RW than Barker, Ojo, Jones or Aribo (out of position).

Aye, though still think he was on the right side of consistent for a winger, which can’t be said about any of his replacements. In terms of him leaving, I think he basically said wanted assurances he’d play regularly, but Gerrard said he couldn’t give him that, so they agreed to let him go.

He was fucking abysmal his last 6 months. All he did was run and put in shite crosses.

Douglas is in his 30s, he’s a decent player but would be a short term fix.

Don’t think we can question Gerrard leadership qualities which makes it all the more baffling he has Tav and Goldson as captain and vice captain, that pair are a major part of our problems

The money we are saving from the players that have currently left will obviously be offset by the current situation. If we sign Hagi though what a statement of intent. Hopefully the rumours of investment a while back are true.

Gerrard leadership qualities as a captain on the pitch and his mental strength as a manager have proved polar opposites so far. Needs to start making the tough choices and showing he can be a winning Rangers manager.

That Scott Allan comment - was it genuine or someone having a laugh? cos I've seen him name mentioned a couple of times different places now.

Hope fucking not. Should be below the shit pile of SPFL players we are linked with.

He’s put far too much trust in certain players and been let down time and time again, needs to find a ruthless streak and ditch his favourites

Just before Christmas we played a closed-doors bounce match against Leicester at Ibrox ... Goldson and Tav both started (and might have even played 90-minutes) :headwall:

His blind spot for chuckle brothers could end up costing him his job, they’re fucking abysmal and lost count of amount goals they cost us last season

There is no denying Scott Allan's talent but the last time he played against us he looked like he had put on some extra pounds.

Do we really need  Scott Allan & Ianis Hagi?

Get me a Kevin Thomson clone.

Allan on his day is the best non OF player in the premiership.

Would be an upgrade on Kamara and Davis.

The decline of Tav as an attacking force started when Candeias left.

In hindsight getting rid of Candeias to fuck about between Ojo, Barker & CM's at RW was a fucking terrible decision. 

Would happily have played him there the full Season, especially with how well he was playing in pre-season.

Aribo our wide is a better player than Candeias.

My absolute fucking arse. 

A shit player that somehow won our POTY was never underrated. He was overrated as fuck because he ran about.

Nonsense. He wasn’t the best winger we’ve ever had but he definitely wasn’t “utter pish”.

He was pish nine times out of ten, I was delighted when we got rid.
