  1. Gutted Aribo is missing games. He has been a really key player.

  2. One thing that seems to have been forgotten in all the debate around how much we should sell Ryan Kent for is our recruitment department.... when we knew we were paying £6.5 million for him there were howls of derision from many within our support. However, even at an opening gambit of £8.5 million that represents a £2 million uplift in just a season, for a player who the support felt wasnt worth the initial purchase price. And when you look at some of the other signings recently too, one has to conclude that our recruitment department these days seems to be in much safer hands.

  3. Rhian Brewster isnt a right winger - he is a centre forward. That is where he played for Swansea all season. Lad may well go on and have a very good career but any time I saw him play for Swansea I was left unimpressed. Harry Wilson is another matter - that boy will have a very good career IMHO. Quality player - am a little surprised that Klopp would let him leave - also surprised that Howe didnt give him more game time at Bournemouth as they were screaming for creativity. We have NO chance of getting him though unless it was a loan - if they are selling him he will be inundate

  4. I was lucky enough to be given a copy of a new book titled The 50 Greatest Rangers Games by Martyn Ramsay. This is my review of it. We all have a favourite Rangers match, or at least a handful that standout above all the others, but I’m not sure I could rank my top 50 and certainly not in order of importance. So I approached this book with a mix of trepidation and excitement. In a recent edition of When Saturday Comes magazine, the writer, Taylor Parks, talks about the 3 ages of football supporting. The last age is nostalgia; always looking back, comparing everything

  6. Now you know why our game at the girodome got moved to October from its traditional slot in August. Had this game been due to been played at ibrox it would have gone ahead as scheduled. welcome to the corrupt state of Scottish football. No wonder sponsors won’t touch it with a barge pole

  9. In seriousness though, it is just the nature of the game of football. People see different things in players. I have been equally surprised by the negativity towards many of our players through the years. To give just one example, I defended and backed Barisic when it seemed 95% of our support wanted him gone after the loss at Rugby Park. Goldson, Tavernier and Jack have been pilloried by sections of support regularly in the last couple of seasons and I have defended them too. Kent is just another player who people see very different things in, albeit I will happily admit that the

  16. I've always believed that one of the defining characteristics of Celtic and its adherents is an ability to create fact out of fiction. Their willingness to believe what is clearly fiction and turn it into established truth would make a blind alchemist blush. If someone says they've sold 50,000 season tickets then the expediency of wanting it to be true will immediately make it "true". The Celtic world is a world of entirely flexible reality, where 50,000 season tickets is whatever you want it to be.

  17. Every time Killie hove on to the horizon, we have the same discussion. I will make my usual contribution, because I believe we continue to make the same mistakes. The key to Killie is their powerhouse midfield trio. Both Dicker and Power sit in front of the central defenders. They are hard working, tough tackling, destroyers of forward momentum. They enjoy a third midfielder in the same vein(Tshibola so far this season), just forward and to their middle. This triangle allows penetration down either side towards the corner flags. Try playing through them, and the tough tackling begins.

  18. Killie will be tough to break down but are unlikely to be anywhere near as defensive as Livi were. That should give us a bit more space to operate in so up to our attacking players to take advantage.

  20. International breaks - arrggghhh hate them. Even when Rangers are playing poorly I would rather watch us than any international games. Maybe we'll see a change of formation tomorrow then - OK I know i have taken that too far!

  21. Agreed. As much as I dislike them, Power and Dicker are a decent combo in there - and if they are using Brophy up top then they have pace, makes it all the more important to have Jack and Kamara whereby one of them can drop off to assist the CB's and squeeze the space for Brophy. We need to combat their presence in CM.

  22. Just my opinion, Killie are one opponent where we need both Jack and Kamara. They have a strong midfield.

  23. I saw a tweet saying the bid was £8.5m with add-ons. Agree thats not enough.

  24. IMHO, it is more about tactics than the odd individual player. And has been for quite some time. I reckon Killie will be similar to St. Johnstone, defending deep but having a couple or more waiting for the counter. As I cannot see us going without either of the fullbacks, you would hope that the JacKamara becomes a Jack or Kamara and we play Itten and or Roofe from the start alongside Morelos, who also looks somewhat undroppable.

  26. I wouldn't sell Kent simply because...who ya gonna replace him with? Barker? Jones? Unless Leeds go full retard and offer something like 17M...keep the little guy.

  27. I would be surprised if we sold kent this year unless a daft bid comes in, think with a full pre season under his belt and staying injury free he will be worth more than 20 million. Im guessing the English teams have to have a quota of English players in their squad, which I would say makes kent more valuable than 10 million, they have just bid 25m for ben white from brighton, if they are willing to bid that for him then I would be wanting equal or more than for kent

  28. As with every other game over the last year, I'll sit down to watch the game tomorrow hoping to see Tavernier deliver something like his form of the season before last. He was such a big part of our (albeit limited) success and to have that same contribution back today would be a major boost. However, I now suspect the player who slotted home penalties for fun and rampaged through defences has lost his mojo and it may be gone for good. In that deflated context he remains a very inappropriate choice of captain.

  29. Neither can I but Ryan Kent has had an irrational army of detractors ever since his price was announced. Kent has been one of the few Rangers players this season who has shown good energy and been prepared to try something other than a safe square pass. Right now, other than Joe Aribo, Kent is about the only source of invention or direct play we have and is one player we really can't afford to be selling. I'd sell Morelos before I'd sell Kent.

  36. We'll there is little point in selling him then. A circa £3M profit (less if there was a sell on clause) isn't the business model we require to fund strengthening the squad or boost our finances.
