  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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. 

  14. Rangers kicked off the gruelling December month with a comfortable win over Hearts. Do you agree with our ratings?

  16. It is back to league business after the positive, yet frustrating result in Rotterdam midweek, as Rangers welcome Hearts to Ibrox on Sunday 1st December, kicking off a crucial month of football. Most would have taken the draw before the game, but because of Porto's win in Bern and the way the game against Feyenoord panned out, we could have came away with three points.

  17. It is a result we would have taken before kick-off, but despite a poor first half, we perhaps could and should have taken all three points. Do you agree with our ratings?

  18. Rangers travel to the Netherlands on Thursday to play Feyenoord in Rotterdam. Their name is now spelled Feyenoord but was originally Feijenoord. They updated their name from the old Feijenoord and took a modern English language plunge to Feyenoord in 1974 - pity really; changing your original historical name.

  20. There has always been something about the Rangers tax saga that didn’t quite sit right. Perhaps it’s down to the surrealism of watching something you care about being in peril or being ripped apart. The out-of-body helplessness of knowing that you cannot stop this slow-motion car crash. Knowing that there are things beyond understanding and influence that have been set in motion and no amount of wishful thinking or shouting into the void can change.

  25. Overview

    A loss of £11.3m has unsurprisingly made the front pages but are we really in such a bad shape? I’d argue that we are not for 3 main reasons:

    - The loss is funded by the directors/investors who have converted most of their loans into share capital.
    - We have no external debt
    - I will argue below that the inherent loss is well under £5m and can be contained by regular European football and the sale of players after development.

  27. As we secretly sit gorging ourselves on our children's Halloween sweeties (or is that just me?), it's safe to say Rangers' efforts this season have been soothing rather than scary.

  28. Rangers demolish Ross County in Dingwall beating the Staggies 4-0. Do you agree with our ratings?

  30. After a mature,quality performance in Portugal, Rangers secure an important point in the Europa League. Do you agree with our ratings?
