  1. He is very articulate and very impressive in interviews. Very well thought of. I know of someone else at Ibrox, no not Kevin Thomson, who came to Rangers specifically because of Ross Wilson - and that person also is very, very good too - but it was Ross Wilson who convinced this person to come to the club.
  2. Agreed, anyone saying that this took too long doesn't really get how these things can't get rushed through in a day or so - no way did Gerrard get that Villa thing done in a day.
  3. Long may it continue. Fan media is the way
  4. In truth, that was my thought too because when I mentioned the Kelty tweet last night instead of KT's usual "insta-response" he waited an hour or so before messaging, lol.
  5. KT is my boy as you all know and I would love to see him as Rangers manager - and I have no doubts he will at some point. My concern though is that this season is far too important, IMHO, to trust in someone who is essentially a rookie manager. The players at Kelty love KT, still can't believe he managed to get Barjonas, which shows how highly thought of KT is - and I know he is also highly thought of at Rangers too. Just think that it has come a couple of years too soon for him.
  6. Not happening from what I was told last night mate
  7. It's a strange one because KT, as we all know, is a HIbs fan, but the Rangers fans treat him far, far better than Hibs fans (despite him doing his latter two stints at Hibs without getting paid). I think it is much for this reason that he LOVES Rangers - he definitely caught the Rangers bug - and not in a Gerrard kind of way...
  8. Not going to lie though.... I would be VERY excited by the prospect of Gio as manager and Kevin as the "Gary Mac" - Kevin, I know for fact, wouldn't accept anything less than 100% - those players would know for sure that they wouldn't be able to hide poor effort from him.
  9. Aye, not sure I would believe a whole lot he says anymore. All just puff pieces to appease.
  10. lol, shame on you for saying Gerrard was a Rangers man then
  11. I would imagine they don't in fairness they are reporting it from another outlet.
  12. Agreed, just depends on whether Gerrard sees Kamara or Kent as cheap upgrades on those squad players.
  13. Mate, Malmo were down to 10 men for 45 minutes and we were at 1-1 on aggregate. That game should have been closed out comfortably. The next opponents Malmo pumped to get into the CL. They threw away 30 million when you factor in the guarantees, possible points bonuses, ticket sales and merchandising. The numbers don't really lie. What is the other way to pay investment back if not monetary ? Regardless, that's a red herring. The "investors" may indeed be Rangers men but they have already put many millions in, our latest results showed a 24 million loss and there is a need to find a further 8 million to see out the season. Gerrard and his team, management and players, threw away any "right" they had to want to strengthen the team when they capitulated at home to Malmo. If Gerrard was pissed about that he should also consider that the Board went with his wishes not to sell Goldson and they also held onto every major player at the club, despite the financial implications. It is incredibly churlish to think Gerrard walked because he didn't get financial backing when he and his team could have done more to justify the spend.
  14. Literally told me he couldn't believe how much of a reaction that tweet got. My words to him were "are you shitting me ? The whole fanbase is on tenterhooks and you posted that thinking it wouldn't get a reaction"
  15. Haha. Nah, he isn't involved, not from what he told me earlier. Obviously he could be and had to backtrack but doesn't seem likely. One day though, no doubt about it in my mind.
  16. He and his team, management and players, should have done what was more than achievable and qualified for the CL. Can't blame the board for not being able to back them financially when they threw away 30 million
  17. Injuries. Aside from doing his ligaments with us he also played 17 games for Middlesbrough with a broken leg
  18. Sky now reporting that Gerrard wants Patterson - no surprise there. However, the surprise is that apparently they are having to go up against Atletico, Bayern Munich and PSG for him. The young man has clearly impressed many people, and rightly so.
  19. I must be under 16. I think Ted Lasso is a great show
  20. I guess he could sign them as squad players, using a fraction of his budget to get better squad players than he currently has - if he is signing starters and getting massive funds then he won't come to Rangers, other than maybe Kamara who, IMHO, is capable of being a starter in many of the EPL's teams.
  21. Agreed - Gio seems to be a very popular choice amongst the vast majority. Ticks many boxes for me : Top class player who won many things in his career, also played in a world cup final. In actual fact, in terms of being a draw for players he should be more of a draw than Gerrard as he won more as a player than Gerrard did, 5 trophies in Scotland, won the EPL at Arsenal, won 2 La Liga's, won the CL - his reputation should attract players for sure Been a manager in his own right. Came in at Feyenoord and they were mediocre at the time. Won the Cup in his first season and then won them the league the following year. Has played at Rangers, knows the expectations, knows the standards, knows what is required One of the biggest boxes he ticks for me though is that his playing philosophy is similar to Gerrard's which, lets be honest, if the players at his disposal play as we know they are capable of, will blow this league away again. Something hasn't been clicking this season - and the question still remains as to whether it is the players or is it the management team ? If it is the management team, then a new manager with a similar philosophy should get a significant bounce - if we get that from Gio who wouldn't need to tinker too much with the playing style, then we win the league, no doubt about it for me. If we bring in another manager with a different philosophy - does he have the personnel to implement that philosophy ?
