  1. Not really any suprises, bet it was a hell of a night for Prso though !!
  2. Whilst we were dominating Scottish Football in the early 90ââ?¬â?¢s, Rangers were ââ?¬Ë?richerââ?¬â?¢ than clubs like Manchester United and after our fantastic European adventure in 93, we were better placed to win the European Cup than teams like Man U, Arsenal, Chelsea etc. It can be argued that those ââ?¬Ë?bigââ?¬â?¢ English clubs were still adjusting to life in the ââ?¬Ë?newââ?¬â?¢ English Premiership and life back on the European stage after years of exile. However, we defeated the English Champions home and away on the way to the inaugural Champions League group stages and were on
  3. This has been so regular recently, we have had so much days off. Saturdays are all about football and the summer is approaching fast when we will have about a 10 week break which is bad enough, but we have lots of off days in Feb, Mar and Apr. One reason is being out of the Scottish Cup. We are almost on out longest stretch of not winning this trophy since that big gap between 1981 and 1992!!. Since then we won it in 92, 93, 96, 99, 2000, 2002, 2003 but we are now we have at least a 5 year gap since winning the oldest trophy in history!! That HAS to be rectified for next season!! E
  4. Mmm, not sure if he will be with us next season. I actually hope he is as I still think he is one player who has skill, pace and can create many chances for us IF he is used properly.
  5. Its one of those typical, standard interviews from a fed-up player or more likely his agent. Maybe he will be for the off after all to boost the transfer kitty? That might make sense with Weir being first choice and us having a few candidates who could come in alongside him. Besides, if Webster is going to cost us �£500,000 or so, we could pay for him from Svensson's fee and have money to spare. Taken from the Daily R*cord:
  6. Started the season very well and scored a few but since then has turned into a dumping so I might do a brake dance if he leaves.
  7. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/r/rangers/6502909.stm And don't come back!
  8. http://www.gersnetonline.net/newsite/index.php That time is here again. The letters will soon be through the door and RFC are asking for your hard-earned cash – often more than £400 in many cases. Are you automatically reaching for your bank account details? Is it money well spent or could it be considered emotional blackmail? Whatever you think wait a few minutes before getting your wallet out – read on! The end of this season will now see 2 years of no success – not one trophy! The product on offer has been depressing and if it wasn’t for a decent CL run last season and an interesti
  9. Look at him referring to Scotland as "they" and not "us"- what an absolute joker.
  10. Thomas Buffel has revealed his intention to quit Rangers and ply his trade in a stronger league. The 26-year-old is under contract at Ibrox through 2009, but is keen to move on, possibly as early as the summer. Buffel, who was close to joining Hannover in January, will not feature for The Gers again this season after undergoing knee surgery. "I have played more than 80 games for Rangers over the past two years and I have won the league and League Cup," Buffel said in the Daily Record. "But I still have the ambition to play my football in a stronger league. "I had the c
  11. Much of which i'm inclined to agree with......... "When Boyd didn�t play in certain games under Paul le Guen, there was revolt in the air. When Boyd doesn�t play under Walter Smith - that�s okay" and "Alan Hutton was fucking sensational yesterday. Dado Prso is a god. Barry Ferguson was immense but I have no warmth for Barry now. I actually hope, Michael Corleone-like, Walter is keeping Barry close til the close season, and, just as Carlo eventually has to answer for Santino, Waldo will give the captaincy to someone else and maybe even sell Barry this summer, as
  12. Fat Jim seems a bit puzzled as to what he means... Funnily enough I noted his silence last week after the Celtic fans sung their IRA hymns of hate.
  13. Needs to perk his ideas up. That's 4 games now we'sve struggled to create any chances. We got lucky against Hibs, their keeper is shit. The home leg against Osasuna was probably the worst performance under Smith since he came back to manage us. Our goal against the mhanks came from a set piece. Novo had a half chance which again came from a set piece. Tonight, apart from Rae's chance we created absolutely nothing and even at that his chance came from a fuck up by the Osasuna defence. His choice of tactics in big games is killing us. Long balls upto either Novo who will always lose ou
  14. Without even playing an all.... the most diddy-like rankings the sports world has ever produced.
  15. What a shambolic performance tonight. Wrong tactics, wrong selection wrong fuckin' everything. Tonight I was proved right, WS is exactly the same manager in europe as he was all those years ago -inept and shite! We were the home team yet played with 1 striker (more about that later). We played long ball tactics, no one supported that 1 striker and when we got the ball on the deck we panicked. I was disgusted with that performance tonight!!! People talk about playing the game with fight and heart. Not Rangers. We try, we fail, we can't do anything right. Absolute shocker tonight.
  16. RANGERS are believed to be keeping tabs on Poland striker Grzegorz Rasiak, of Southampton. The 6ft 3in, 28-year-old has bagged 19 goals this season in Saints' push to get back into the Premiership. Gers No.3 Kenny McDowall went to look at Rasiak in Saturday's 1-0 win over Ipswich, but the former Derby County and Spurs man was an unused sub. Rasiak was signed from White Hart Lane last May in a �£2m deal after failing to make an impact in London. advertisement But the 35-times capped Poland frontman, who was a team-mate of Celtic duo Maciej Zurawski and Artur Boruc at the Worl
  17. You're Just Fan-tastic IBROX was rocking last night as Rangers stormed into the last 16 stage of the UEFA Cup with a 5-2 aggregate win over Hapoel Tel-Aviv. The biggest crowd of the night in Europe - 46,213 - gave Walter Smith and his boys sensational backing which was sparked by a brilliant pre-match flag display. The supporters have been getting unwarranted stick in recent weeks but last night they were simply the best. And Chief Executive Martin Bain praised the Ibrox faithful after the club's sensational win. He said: "All of us at Rangers congratulate our supporters f
  18. Good luck to Andy and hopefully we will see him in action before the season ends
  19. After Walter Smith left the club in 1998 nobody it can be said with hindsight that we went off track. We were the domestic force by a country mile for a long period of time but not able to compete with the big boys of Europe so an alternative route was taken. Domestic success wasnt enough. It started with a bang with Dick Advocaat in charge. We missed out on our 10th title in a row the previous season which sent us in to the UEFA cup in 1998/99. We matched the mighty Parma that season and retained our league title - we were champs again. This continued into the next season and we co
  20. THOMAS BUFFEL has been ruled out for the rest of the season. The Belgian will shortly undergo surgery to cure a knee injury and will now play no further part in this campaign. He last played in the 1-0 win at Dunfermline on January 21. His enforced absence is another blow to manager Walter Smith who is currently also without Dado Prso, Steven Smith and Andy Webster through injury. Buffel joined Rangers from Feyenoord in January 2005 and has made a total of 81 appearances, scoring 16 goals. http://www.rangers.premiumtv.co.uk/p...978793,00.html
  21. WALTER Smith could be set to hand Stefan Klos a dramatic return for Rangers at Rugby Park this Sunday. The German keeper, who has made only three SPL starts in two years, may have to replace injured No.1 Allan McGregor. McGregor missed the Scotland gathering at Turnberry to have intensive treatment at Murray Park for a groin injury. It's understood he would have been forced to sit on the sidelines had Rangers still been involved in the Scottish Cup at the weekend, but the extra week has given him hope of recovering in time. advertisement Klos made himself a huge favourite with
  22. Former Celt rejects Gers Thu, Feb 01 2007 18:45 Mark Fotheringham has revealed he snubbed Rangers to join Norwich - because he wanted to play a higher standard of football. The former Celtic star joined on transfer deadline day along with fellow Scot, Simon Lappin, who arrived from Scottish Premier League side St Mirren. Fotheringham had been training with Rangers for a week and looked set to join Walter Smith's men. However, having watched Peter Grant's side take on Wolves at Carrow Road on Tuesday evening, the 24-year-old was quick to change his mind. The former Dundee player s
  23. Danish starlet Adda Djeziri is being tipped to move to Rangers before the close of the transfer window. The teenage forward trained with the Scottish giants last week and is understood to have impressed Walter Smith and Ally McCoist. He currently plays for BK Frem and reports have suggested he would cost Rangers a fee of �£125,000. Frem chairman Hans Hermansen has confirmed talks have taken place and appears optimistic a deal will be concluded before the window shuts. "A couple of details remain to be discussed, but I am convinced that the transfer will take place this month,
  24. Again, according to sky sports Hannover want to sign Rangers midfielder Thomas Buffel. The Bundesliga side believe the 25-year-old can bolster their midfield, but Rangers boss Walter Smith may be unwilling to part with the Belgian during the transfer window. Hannover's Sporting director Christian Hochstatter is believed to be set to fly to Glasgow in an effort to secure a deal for Buffel, who cost Rangers �£2.3million in 2005. Head coach Dieter Hecking said: "I�´m not the right person to ask to say whether a deal is possible before January 31. "But if we fly over there,
  25. Much has been written about the abrupt departure of Mr PLG and the reappointment of Mr Smith and the possible reasons behind PLG�s departure, but nothing is going to change the fact that Walter Smith (plus Ally McCoist and Kenny McDowell) has replaced the much lauded (well, before his arrival in Govan) Frenchman. For sometime now, probably since Dick Advocaat�s departure, it has been obvious that Rangers needed a period of stability, whilst David Murray downsized our ambitions as we were in uncontrollable debt. In retrospect, Alex McLeish gave us a period (2 years) of stabili
