  1. WALTER SMITH last night warned the Rangers boo boys they could drive him out of the door at Ibrox. The boss has been left bewildered by the reaction of certain sections of the home support when the team have won the CIS Cup and are fighting for three other trophies. Derisive shouts could be heard during Thursday's 0-0 UEFA Cup draw with Sporting Lisbon and some fans booed the team at full-time Smith admits he struggles to understand why modern-day supporters are so quick to get on the backs of their players and managers. The gaffer said: "It's been happening since the first game of
  2. EURO specialist Brahim Hemdani is set to return to the starting line-up as Rangers take on Sporting Club in the first leg of their UEFA Cup quarter-final on Thursday night. The French-Algerian has been a key man on he European stage and having recovered from a groin strain, he is set to be given a major role against the Lisbon side. Hemdani, who has only missed one of Rangers' 14 games in the Champions League and UEFA Cup this season, was injured in the CIS Cup Final against Dundee United but he is fit again now. Similarly, Kevin Thomson has been passed fit for the vital first leg
  3. Old Firm Reaction Well another Rangers OF victory and another case of Masonic Conspiracy. Read any of the unbiased Scottish media today and youââ?¬â?¢d believe that Rangers cheated their way to victory with the help of another Brother In Black. I havenââ?¬â?¢t had time (nor the inclination really) to refer to my various oracles and on-line search engines, but I can take a guess at this, I do wonder if any Rangers OF victory has been met with a simple, ââ?¬Ë?Yip, the best team wonââ?¬â?¢? I would say it was highly unlikely. The latest OF game wasnââ?¬â?¢t particularly a great game of f
  4. When Kevin Thomson acrimoniously departed Hibs last January many expected his close pal to follow him along the M8 from Easter Road to Ibrox. During the following summer Scot Brown did indeed follow Thomson along the M8, but instead ended up at Celtic Park. The media took great delight in ridiculing Rangers as being the new owners of the biscuit tin as we were seen as being unable to compete with Cetlic's package to take the young Scottish international to Parkhead. Were Rangers unwilling or unable to match the �£4.5 million pound fee plus �£25k per week in wages? The two midifeld
  5. Its been over a month since we dumped Hearts out of the CIS Cup in the semi-final, but at long last we're on our way back to Hampden for a cup final. OK, so its only the league cup which is often called a "diddy" competition, but every club outwith us and Dundee United would still rather be there and not. As well as being a great day out for the fans, its the chance to win the first silverware of the season and in our case, hopefully, the first of many. It will also be the first chance for many of these players to win a trophy with Rangers. Many won't have played in a final at Hampden befo
  6. Nocho Novo and Stevie Naismith are set to be unleashed on Partick Thistle tomorrow night as Rangers aim to take further strides in the Scottish Cup. Charlie Adam is also likely to be brought back too as Walter Smith sets his sights on a slot in the semi-finals. Novo, Naismith and Adam were all ineligible for Sunday's CIS Cup Final triumph - with Nacho and Charlie suspended and Stevie cup-tied. So they are all certainties to be in the squad - and even the starting line-up - as boss Walter Smith aims to reach the last four. He said " All of these lads come back into the plans and
  7. Hutton will just have to keep him out of the team again! Dont like Bardsleys attitude but he is a better option than McNaughton and Alexander. However Hutton has this position his own for the next 10 years and Whittaker is fine back up.
  8. Taken from 4-4-2 magazine. I nicked this from FF... Good read.

    Mad March:

    MAD MARCH: Eight games in 28 days could hit Gers title bid RANGERS IN MARCH 1 Aberdeen (h) SPL 6 W Bremen (h) Uefa 9 Hibs (h) Scottish Cup 12 W Bremen (a) Uefa 16 CIS Cup Final 19 Partick (h; tbc or SPL) 22 Hibs (h) SPL 26 Scotland v Croatia 29 Celtic (h) SPL by Darrell King Rangers' dramatic win in Athens last night could seriously impact their dreams of winning back the SPL title this season. Nacho Novo's equaliser against Panathinaikos took Rangers through on away goals to a last 16 meeting with Werder Bremen. It also added to a hectic mad March of games fo
  10. RANGERS manager Walter Smith has expressed his delight at guiding the club through to the last 16 stage of the UEFA Cup and praised Nacho Novo after the Spaniard's goal in Athens proved decisive. Nacho NovoNacho admitted himself that he should have found the net on a couple of occasions at Ibrox in the first-leg but made up for that with a clinical finish on 80 minutes to give his side an aggregate win. His workrate throughout the game was tremendous and Smith always felt that he would take his chance when it came along. He said: "It was good to see Nacho score as he deserved it fo
  11. KENNY McDOWALL expects a more positive approach from Panathinaikos when Rangers face them on Thursday - and says that can help the Light Blues win. The sides will meet in the second leg of their UEFA Cup tie at the Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium in Athens eight days after they shared a 0-0 draw at Ibrox. Ally McCoist, Walter Smith and Kenny McDowallOn that occasion, it was Walter Smith's Gers who created the best chances and the Greeks' shoot-on-sight policy meant they barely threatened. First-team coach McDowall believes the Greens will be more upbeat as they try to clinch a likely
  12. FRANK LAMPARD says Rangers can cope with the red-hot Athens atmosphere and get a positive result against Panathinaikos like his Chelsea side did at Olympiacos. England midfielder Lamps came on for the last few minutes of the Blues' 0-0 Champions League draw at the Karaiskaki Stadium last night. Home fans in the capacity crowd made the ground a cauldron of noise and Gers are likely to face something similar at the Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium tomorrow. But Lampard believes Walter Smith's men have what it takes to handle fans' intimidation tactics and get the scoreline they need to a
  13. The Rangers Football Club plc today (Wednesday, 20 February 2008) published its unaudited interim results for the six months to 31 December 2007. FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS Ã?· Ã?£10.0m (43.6%) uplift in turnover to Ã?£33.1m (2006: Ã?£23.1m). Ã?· Increase of Ã?£3.8m in profit before interest and tax to Ã?£3.1m (2006: loss of Ã?£0.7m). Ã?· Retained profit increased by Ã?£3.8m to Ã?£2.3m (2006: loss of Ã?£1.5m). Following publication of the interim results, Rangers chairman Sir David Murray, said: ââ?¬Å?These results are satisfying in that they reflect the progress the
  14. Thought this an interesting comparison and view from Russell who himself was a very good player for us and after the debates and merits towards both Boyd and Cousin was a good read. Cousin may be the better option, or more specifically, better suited to the lone striker role. I'd still play Boyd though for reasons that have been debated thoroughly over the last week or so.
  15. KEVIN THOMSON will return to action tomorrow afternoon when Rangers Reserves take on Hearts at Forthbank Stadium. Kevin ThomosnThe midfielder has made a speedy recovery from a double hernia operation and has looked fit and sharp in training at Murray Park. With the first-team squad travelling to Athens tomorrow Thomson will stay behind to face the Jambos along with Amdy Faye, Andy Webster and Steven Smith. Manager Walter Smith confimred this morning that the Gretna game would probably come too soon for Kevin but hopes he may be available for the club's home clash against Aberdeen o
  16. May been discussed to deatb but I thought it was a good read. Can anyion e think of ANY other team in the SPL that wouldn't hav Boyd as a starter?
  17. I think that as a squad we have a lot of attack minded players but we persist on going on the defensive all the time , Yes we had chances last night but playing L.McCulloch up front his self says it all we should have had Burke , Naismith on from the start to cause havoc down the flanks and put N.Novo up front with McCulloch as support. Then Bring Cousin or Boyd on later in the game , but as usual Walter leaves it too late to make a change and the sub has no impact on the game. I am a Walter Smith fan but watching us at home in Europe is getting frustrating we are like a team who
  18. it seems to me that the exact same reason adam gets a game, boyd is left out. adam is one of those players who, in a way some players cant, a certain percentage of the time, actually scores or creates a good scoring chance. he done it last night. while a lot of the time he is beyond shit i cant recall how many times i've either said "aw, naw, what you bringing on him for at all?" or "he has been abject pish, surely he must be subbed" and he's done something brilliant as if to personally spite me. he is the classic percentages player - 90% or so of the time he is a passenger, but i think walter
  19. Thought this was a great read. We've all debated the pro's and cons of Boyd on here. Some are for and some are against. Im a huge fan and would love to see him starting every game. 15 goals in 17 starts is phenomanal.
  20. What team would you put out against Pana? McGregor SW Weir CC Papac Burke / Novo Davis Hendami Fergie SN / Buffel Cousin The reasoning behind this is that Pana will be big, strong and quick on the counter attack and we need to match all of that. I chose Papac purely down to his experience. I would like to see TB playing some part in the game as we will require all the craft and guile that we can muster to break down their defence. I chose Cousin as outwith JCD he is the only player currently on our books who can play the lone striker role on the European stage. In s
  21. THE date is July 1, 2020 and Rangers' manager Barry Ferguson and his trusted assistant Lee McCulloch are plotting the club's defence of the domestic treble they won during the 2019/20 campaign. This might sound a bit far-fetched at the start of 2008 but Barry has revealed that he will take his first tentative steps into the world of football coaching at the end of this season with his good pal Lee. The Gers' captain, who celebrates his 30th birthday tomorrow, insists that he will play at the top level for at least another five years but is already making plans for when his glittering c
  22. http://www.gersnetonline.net/newsite/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=590&Itemid=1 The morning after the night before, eh? Iââ?¬â?¢m sure Iââ?¬â?¢m not the only football fan nursing the equivalent of a hangover this morning as the hype of January transfer window closes for another season. Internet forum server issues, ridiculous radio-phone rumours and around-the-clock satellite sports news excitement ââ?¬â?? coupled together they make for quite a cocktail of commotion and emotion. Hence the hangover this morning; especially when our team havenââ?¬â?¢t been as p
  23. Now that's a promising looking signing. A 23 year old midfielder with Premiership experience, Northern Ireland internationalist and a Bluenose too. Hopefully his loan is just the start of a long & successful career here.

    New Keeper

    Rangers have completed the signing of Ipswich Town goalkeeper Neil Alexander, which should free Roy Carroll to join Derby County. Alexander has agreed a contract until 2011 with the SPL leaders after Ipswich admitted they could not stand in the player's way. The Scotland international only moved to Portman Road last summer from Cardiff City, but did not hesitate to accept a move to Ibrox. "As soon as I knew Rangers were interested in me, I didn't have to think twice about coming here," Alexander told the club's official website. Very grateful "There was only going
