The latest thoughts and opinions from the writers team at Gersnet.
  1. This article came from a discussion on our current condition and whether we could realistically be any further ahead. It’s a recap on our rehabilitation and rebuild, a pause to think about progress and any missteps. And ultimately, are we where we expect to be and can we draw any lessons and apply them going forward?

  2. Last summer we launched our Gersnet Podcast and we've been delighted with the response across the community with thousands of views and subscribers already across the various platforms. As promised the pod will be available on a regular basis so today we're very happy to bring you our next live episode of season 2019/20.

  3. In addition to our own regular podcast offerings, we're delighted to partner up with the wonderful and very popular 4LadsHadaDream blog to also bring you their monthly pods.

  4. It’s fair to say 2020 hasn’t really been kind to Rangers so far. A combination of suspensions, injuries, poor form, bad refereeing and awful weather means performances and results haven’t been of the standard required since we return from the winter break.

  5. With the Gers battling away to stay in the title race and desperately trying to keep pace with Celtic after a run of results which has seen them lose the initiative, it’s easy to forget that there is a European tie lurking around the corner, which is going to require all of Rangers’ attention. Braga, a team that is sitting third in Portugal’s Primeira Liga will make the trip to Ibrox on 20th February for the first leg of the Europa League round of 32 tie. Rangers will then travel to Portugal for the return leg on the 26th.

  7. Make no bones about it, Liverpool are on the run of a lifetime in the English Premier League. They’re unbeaten all season so far, with a 22—yes, TWENTY TWO—point lead over second-placed Manchester City and just one defeat in the 2018/19 season. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds certainly don’t deal in defeats.

  8. There is no doubt it has been a frustrating few weeks, to say the least. A couple of defeats to Hearts and Kilmarnock, and more worryingly in my opinion, a series of pathetic performances have littered our fixture list. Any potential title challenge we had within our grasp has been wrenched from it - perhaps irrevocably? As is right, the manager has been at the forefront of some robust criticism.

  10. A week is a long time in football so a lot has happened since my last match preview last month ahead of the Stranraer game.

  11. The results against Hearts and Aberdeen were terrible. I want to tear into the players. I want to tear into the management team. But I won’t (here at least) because there’s some fantastic Rangers tactics blogs and podcasts that are better qualified to do that and arguably far more wholesome and healthier. Hopefully they can do it justice and provide some ice-cold reasoning to pour over the rage simmering in the support at the moment.

  14. The late Jock Wallace is often characterised as the archetypal old school manager; gruff, authoritarian, intimidating, bellowing orders and ruling through fear. Some of that might be true, but it’s also true of many football managers of that era. What’s so often overlooked about Wallace was his subtle use of psychology.

  19. Gerrard believes Morelos should take inspiration from Uruguayan ace, Luis Suarez

    Aged just 23, Rangers’ Colombian talisman Alfredo Morelos has achieved a lot in his short professional football career. After signing his first pro deal with Independiente Medellin back in 2011, it was a bold move to Finnish football in 2016 that demonstrated Morelos’ desire to make an impact in the sport. After being named the Veikkausliiga’s best striker in 2016-17, Rangers came calling. A £1m fee was agreed with HJK Helsinki and the rest is history.

  20. It's only been a few weeks since Rangers got the better of Celtic but, as the winter break finally comes to a close with a return to action in the Cup against Stranraer, that victory in the East End of Glasgow already seems a long time ago.  Yet, there's a sense of familiarity with the position we're in - especially compared to this time last year.

  21. As a rule I'm generally against banning the media.

    If you don't like something don't read it. Don't buy it, don't click it, don't share it. I've not read the recent Leckie article in question and don't think I've ever bought The Sun so Gersnet's forum ban on the tabloid's content doesn't really affect me much. Indeed, Bill Leckie was never a writer I thought had much to say and from what I hear that's not changed.

  24. Is it coincidence that Gerrard and Klopp both signed new contracts until 2024?

  27. It has been a strange week. The disappointment of last Sunday's Cup Final still lingers, and then the last minute equaliser against Young Boys was gutting, but we did still qualify for the last 32 of the Europa League -- a magnificent achievement.

  28. Ever been kicked in the balls? That’s what Young Boys injury time winner in Bern felt like. Only the pain from a boot in the chuckies would have disappeared a lot quicker than the gut wrenching, pit of the stomach feeling that I, and other bears had following Fassnacht’s 93rd minute winner.

  29. The current situation reference Rangers is nothing new to those of us passing three score years. The almost five year period between April'66 and October'70 felt like unrelenting darkness. It was impenetrable, the Scottish Cup final replay victory over Celtic was a dazzling brightness; however, by Autumn'70 it had faded. Of course, we knew where we had come from, locating the way ahead was the real problem. Rangers had made a ECWC final and a Scottish Cup final too, in the intervening years, and failed to secure both cups. Further, we had endured a couple of Championship campaigns where we managed to secure defeat from the jaws of victory on the last days of the seasons. Flicking the switch appeared useless too, three differing Managers and a repeating temporary Boss did not raise a glimmer.

  30. Rangers make the long trip north to Pittodrie on Wednesday night to take on Derek McInnes' Aberdeen. The games against the Dons last season were trying, for fans and management alike; most trips to Pittodrie are difficult hunting grounds for Rangers teams, but Rangers can take a lot of confidence from recent results, including the last meeting between the sides.
