  1. When did we become such a good side that we can put in a 5/10 performance in a European group match and win the game and don’t allow our opponent a shot on target? I was in Luxembourg just 3 years ago, watching the worst result in our entire history, under the worst manager in our history, and I could only dream of nights like tonight. Thanks Rangers, any win in a European group stage will never be undervalued by this bear.

  3. On the 29th October 1855 our Founder Moses McNeil was born. image upload Moses was from the east side of the Gareloch ,his father John was from Comrie in Perthshire and mother Jane Bain from Downpatrick in Ulster. He was a natural athlete Powerful and of stocky build,it was said that was known for his pace and he had stamina too. In the Ibrox trophy room is a cup won by Moses for a half-mile race at the Garelochead Athletic Sports on 1 January, 1876 and it’s the oldest Trophy that the Club has. image upload Moses played for

  4. Maybe we're becoming spoiled by some recent performances but I didn't think we were too bad tonight The first half was all broken play and frustrating but the second half showed that greatest of sporting qualities - resilience - and we left the field with another European scalp. We've come a long long way in the last two years.

  5. This however is not a good thing as any points won by Rangers or Celtic now get divided by 5 instead of 4 , given the 3 other teams will by and large contribute next to nothing going forward it only makes it harder to stay in the top 12 positions .Again the MSM miss the point as the show their usual ignorance towards the whole coefficient issue .

  7. This is actually very unfair and a poor comparison , as Ally didnt get to play anywhere near as many group games and the knockout rounds were much more difficult back in his day

  13. There has been minimal fanfare preceding this fixture, which is a tad surprising but also understandable. I think most of us are expecting a win but games in Europe are rarely easy, so let's not take anything for granted. From what I've read, Lech Poznan might pose a different threat than we usually see, playing a high press and being fairly erratic in terms of outcome (if their gameplan works, it's great but if it doesn't, they tend to look amateurish). I'm hoping to see Roofe and Itten get some game time, a victory and no injuries.

  14. You mean like the backlog of fixtures faced by Scotland's representative in the Europa league cup final in 2008? Now what would happen if some clubs could not accommodate the exigencies of league re-scheduling because they, say St. Mirren or Alloa, had previously booked a tour of Japan for their club? There again, I could ask you if you can see the buttons on the back of my head.

  18. We wanted better after half-time and I think we got it. Yes, it was still scrappy in good positions with one or two touches too many but Morelos came on at the right time and one bit of magic from Barisic wins us the game. After that we sat a bit deeper, managed the game fairly well - other than one or two bad touches after we won it back - but we looked comfortable enough to credit to the defence for yet another clean sheet. It's getting a wee bit tricky for the manager now: does he rotate and make 3-5 changes for every game or does he risk asking too much of some pla

  19. 3 points, clean sheet, Alfie on target, no shots on target from them. 1st half was poor, 2nd half was better once Alfie was brought on. On to another huge game on Sunday.

  21. Lost our way a bit there at the end there, but is that 15 matches unbeaten? 6 points from 6 in the Europa League! Beat Celtic away in the first old firm match. Really incredible start to the season, couldn't ask for anything more! awesome is awesome.

  29. You are trying to confuse me, now; and succeeding. However, as I often (have to) do, I will simplify. Think of it as Occam's Malky..... The late Glaswegian folksinger, raconteur, writer, drinker, and "character", Mr Matt McGinn, some years ago, was moved to observe: "There was a gay chap* from Khartoum Took a lesbian up into his room But they argued all the night About who had the right To do what, and with which, and to whom." (*He didn't use the expression 'gay chap'.)

  32. They’re a hard team to judge from a look at their results. Had a look at their transfers and it looks to me like they’ve sold a few good players and, judging by their results, their replacements either aren’t up to it or haven’t settled yet. Last season their record was nearly identical to Legia who were a very tough nut to crack. But their record away in Europe has been very good. A 3-0 win in Sweden is impressive, and a 2-1 away win over a team ahead of Standard Liege in the league is impressive too. I think we will be too organised for them, but it will probably be a clo

  33. Win impact rating is a combination of loads of stats, defensive and offensive. Not sure how much I trust it personally, seems to favour attacking players who take a lot of a shots a bit too much. Interesting reading anyway. Not including our front 3, Arfield, Jack and Tavernier all showing up with very high numbers. I’d think Barisic should be here though.
