Aye, the wall was about as solid as wet toilet paper.

He's rusty and probably didn't expect that sort of shot. Juninho Pernambucano would have been proud of that effort.

If Dailly hadn't given away a pointless freekick in the first instance....

his love life is catching up on him

AM is guilty of beleiving all the hype. Sure he was great for us last year, but he is far from being the player he thinks he is!

McGregor's positioning has always been suspect. TBF to AM, had he not pulled off some good saves then we could have lost four. He needs to work on both his fitness and his parts technique.

The defense -the supposed cornerstone of Walter's 'progress'- is a shambles without Cueller.

Broadfoot - is too raw, is trying to do far too much and rushes into too many mistakes. Booing the guy doesn't help either. He needs a stable, defensive partner for the longer term and that is either the proven Cueller (if he stays) or Bougherra. Until then he will remain a Scottish Karl Svensson.

Weir - should be a squad player-cum-coach, his experience would surely aid the youngsters, but that would too much like common sense or progress for WS. Making him Club Captain at the expense of Cueller (if fit), Thomson or even Hemdami or Papac sums up Smith's short term mindset and it will be a big mistake. Too slow to react or turn, too vulnerable to injury and his much vaunted organisational skills and vision were nowhere last night.

Whittaker - runs into blind alleys, gives the ball away, too much of hothead and has questionable passing and crossing. He has not filled the void left by Hutton but, then again, has barely been played in his proper position (see also Broadfoot). For all his faults, SW has shown he can actually be a competent RB at times, but he is another who needs to play alongside experience and stability. Maybe a decent midfield giving away less of the ball and fewer stupid fouls would inspire less panic.

Papac - about the only player who has consistently improved under Walter Smith management. SP is modest, an excellent professional, has learned from his mistakes and, IMO, should appointed Club Captain forthwith. He and Novo are the only ones deserving any kind of credit from last night's debacle. He is a credit to himself and the Club :unionflag: (tu) .

Dailly- a total liability. A useful short term utility player or squad but he should have went this summer. There is no way he should be either running key areas like central midfield, the holding role or central defense. Again, his presence in the team sums up Walter Smith's 'safety first, 0-0' mentality perfectly. Another one of Barry's pals.

Webster - even more than Kenny Misser, this signing finished Walter & Ally's credibility and judgement in my eyes. Injury prone from the start, chronically lacking match fitness, ONE competitive game to his credit, Smith did not even pick the guy for Scotland and suddenly he's good enough for Rangers. The nightmare scenario is a Webster-Dailly defensive partnership.

And this is the so-called strongest point of our team!

McGregor is not ready to come back yet. he has made mistakes in pre season, and was at fault last night for first goal. it is made more astonishing by the fact that we have a solid (if unspectacular) deputy for him. there is no need to be rushing McGregor back, and it cost us last night IMO

with each ball he parried/fumbled/save he grew even more shakey imo, alot of our players went from decent in spells in the first half to becoming like a dear caught in headlights, Alexander should start against Falkirk, full of confidence and is always signaling for the team to push up the field, gets on a defenders back when needed. McGregor is a better keeper when on form but he needs to get himself together.

McGregor should have done better. Daily OMG

Dailly's a fucking muppet, screaming at referee's, giving away the set peices that lead to goals, if theirs one player at Rangers I fucking despise right now its Dailly.

No offense but that free kick wasn't a screamer.

The ball didn't even go near the corner or the near post. It wasn't just under the crossbar - it was at a perfectly saveable height. What side did he think the guy was going to hit it to? All it needed was one step to his right then catch it.

Just looking at it again , where the fuck and what the fuck was McGregor doing ???

someone tell me

I think he slipped + the wall wasn't set up very well...There were nobody protecting the right side of the wall

Who sets up the wall?

Mr Allan McGregor himself

Ive always thought of McGregor as a bit of a "Hollywood" keeper.

There are many parts of his game that he could improve. His decisions to come for cross balls and his handling in general being the main two.

I hope im wrong and he goes and builds on his form from last season (as he did play really well during some games) but really, i wouldnt be surprised at all if he turned out to be our very own David Marshall.
