  1. They still know how to take your money though. That came off my bank straight away.
  2. This. I considered investing in the last share issue but it had a minimum buy in of £500. Considering your shares are likely to decrease in value its a lot to ask fans for. A share issue witha minimum buy in of £100 would have been more successful IMO. I would certainly have subscribed
  3. I ordered a print of this two weeks ago and have heard nothing since from Rangers. I know these were available at the Old Firm match in the fan village so they must be available to send out to people. Has anyone else ordered one of these and revceived it? I've emailed Rangers but the email address in the confirmation email was for the ticket office so I'm not holding my breath for a reply.
  4. I went for Bassey as well, he's really turning into a player for us. He has great feet for a big man and great strength too. I'm beginning to think left back is the better position for him than CB, though weve probably not seen enough of him to know. There were many outstanding candidates though. Morelos could also have got MOTM his strength holding the ball up was excellent and he did really well for the goal that was wrongly disallowed by VAR.
  5. To be fair we were 6 points clear at the top of the league and thats with a manager whose heart was not in it for a few months while the Aston Villa job was on his mind. I've heard that was on the cards for a long time before it happened, you only need to look at the speed with which it did happen once the rumours were made public. Gio played the wrong midfield if we were going to adopt the sitting in approach. We surely needed Davis and maybe Lundstram if we planned to defend (assuming Jack wasnt fit enough to play the 90 mins) playing defensive football with a midfield of Aribo, Arfield and Kamara was just plain wrong. I still feel there is enough in that squad to win the title. Celtic arent as good as we made them look by sitting off them. They struggled past Dundee Utd at home only a w eek ago. I also really hope Jack is back for the season, he and Ramsay could be the heart of a terrific midfield for us. We'll soon have Morelos back and with Balogun back at Centre back instead of Bassey and Helander on the way we are good enough to win this league provided Gio learns from his mistakes. I wonder if part of the problem with Gio is that he never brought in a Scottish assistant. Somebody like McCann or KT could have given him more up to date knowledge of Scottish football and the Rangers squads strenghts and weaknesses for that matter.
  6. it is Gio's tactics though. The fact that it is the same personnel doesnt mean we are playing the same way. He is keeping the fullbacks back and not pressing teams the way we did under Gerrard. Under Gerrard we had a great defensive record by pressing high up the pitch and keeping opponents away from our goal. Also the fullbacks overlapping with the wingers caused opposition defenders problems. Kent and Diallo were pretty ineffective last night and I think would be better with the support of a running fullback. Also Kamara, Aribo and Arfield is too lightweight a midfield. We really need a Davis, Jack or even Lundstram in there to do the ball winning. In the second half when we let Tav forward more and got bodies up the field we dominated possesion albeit the game was over
  7. For me Gio just got his tactics wrong, not necessarily the formation but just the fact that we sat off Celtic and allowed them to have the ball in our half of the field. We invited pressure onto us and you cant afford to do that with Celtic's attacking options and our defensive frailties. Our defense was at its best under Gerrard when the full backs pressed forward and we pressed teams high up the pitch to keep the ball away from our goal. I hope Gio learns to adapt his system and not just instill his way of doing things. He has taken the main strenght of our team under Gerrard (the fullbacks) and turned them into a weakness. I know the game was over but when we attacked Celtic in the second half we actually dominated the game, I just hope Gio learns that sitting in is not the best way for Rangers to play. Weve done it in a few games this season, normally after we go ahead and its brought a lot of pressure onto us. I can honestly see Hearts beating us if we start the same way as last night.
  8. I think you are right, a modest fee for Souttar is better than an unhappy player between now and the end of the season. Although they are probably aiming for a Europa spot in the league they know they will never qualify for the group stages so that wont achieve anything for them financially.
  9. I read on Twitter that a Birmingham newspaper reported that he turned down Villa to stay at Rangers. Stevie G started poaching already.
  10. I would sell him at that price. If we keep him and his form dips we won't get that fee in the summer. Clubs haven't exactly been queueing up to pay that kind of money for him. Porto and Lille were offering about half what's quoted here.
  11. Rumour: OUT - Morelos Apparently Newcastle, Everton and Leicester all interested for around £20m Evening Times Link If true the fee could rise, with 3 clubs interested. I'd take it tbh, if we dont his head could get turned again then we have an unhappy Morelos for the rest of the season. Better to take the cash and with the Patterson money as well there would surely be some funds made available for a decent replacement.
  12. Rumour: IN - Xavi Simons He's a 18 yo midfielder from PSG in the final year of his contract and keen to get first team football. He's Dutch so maybe we have a chance. He was at Barca up to the age of 16. Evening Times Link
  13. I'd say Goldson as well. Some of his longer range passing was excellent and he had his best defensive performance of the season so far I would say. GVB seems to have brought him back to form.
  14. I actually don't think we played that badly. I think credit has to go to Hibs for us giving the ball away so much due to their pressing. If they put that much effort into every game they would be higher up the league. We dominated the game but we do need to be better in the final third. Im not convinced by Hagi in these kind of games where you arent getting any time on the ball.
