The latest thoughts and opinions from the writers team at Gersnet.
  1. My favourite revenge scene in any movie is the execution that triggers, literally, the denouement of Michael Mann’s peerless heist epic Heat. It’s not how Robert De Niro’s Neil McCauley finds Kevin Gage’s Waingro, hiding in a hotel room. It’s not that he kills him with two close-range handgun shots to the chest and one to the head. It’s that, as the thoroughly evil Waingro sits on a sofa in his bath robe, staring morosely at the floor, McCauley makes him face what’s happening to him. No. Sorry. Scrub that. He makes Waingro face who is happening to him.

  4. Well, the much dreaded international break didn't disappoint. It was every bit as tediously boring and excruciatingly long as feared. Tragically, some would eventually succumb to madness as everyone from Paddy Roberts to Alan Power were "linked" with sensational switches to Ibrox as the prospect of even a crumb of a genuine rumour became less and less likely before the end of the break. Fortunately, there was a welcome relief from the deafening silence around Ibrox in the scintillating football played by Steve Clarke's dynamos as Israel were bravely thwarted at Hampden and Czechia's C team were effortlessly brushed aside in Olomouc. But for now, the only thing that matters is that our players came back injury-free.

  6. Cheeky grin in the warm-up to a masked petted lip, slumped in the stand near full-time. Yet the pictures Sportscene used to tell us Alfredo Morelos is no longer one of us (BBC Scotland’s always so keen to help) perfectly mirrored the mood journey of every bluenose, Saturday tea-time, with every occasion Rangers went up-field from Minute 20 to Minute 93 of our trip to the Fountain of How The F**k Did He Miss That Stadium: A bouncily positive start reaping early rewards became simply knowing every attack would fail.

  8. I thought Saturday’s result, entirely jammy in how it came about, merely papered over the cracks of what has been a frankly disgraceful start to the season. The sight of Walter Smith by the side of the pitch only brought home how shamefully un-Rangers it all was.

  10. We all have a favourite Rangers match, or at least a handful that standout above all the others, but I’m not sure I could rank my top 50 and certainly not in order of importance. So I approached this book with a mix of trepidation and excitement.

  12. What a difference four days make. What a difference no Aribo makes. What a difference when, instead of Clive Tyldesley and Kevin Thomson waxing knowledgeably over sun-drenched strolls on the resplendent Ibrox lawn, we have Ian Croker and Andy Walker being as dull as the clouds above our stumbles on a pish-flattened West Lothian bathroom mat.

    Most of all, though, how different your run of clean sheets appears when suddenly your opponent ain’t conceding either.

  14. In the weird and, not so wonderful, pandemic affected world we currently live in, it's not really a surprise that the start of the new Scottish Premiership season has been an equally strange one. With Aberdeen and Celtic players falling foul of restrictions placed upon them (eight at the Dons and two at Celtic), and subsequent postponements of their games, the league table already has a somewhat unfamiliar look after just three games (well three for those able to actually fulfil their fixtures).

  16. Two down after an hour? Yes, but also two down within an hour. Watch the recording enough and you’ll spot the little Europa League clock up the top left of BT Sport’s screen is actually at 58 minutes and 39 seconds as the reverse shot from Abel Ruiz flies into Allan McGregor’s bottom-right corner.

    A domestic season disintegrating amid refereeing errors outmatched by our own incompetence; Now, from a wrongly-awarded throw-in, Braga turn us inside-out to become the first visiting side to score two against Steven Gerrard’s Rangers in Europe.

    Yet another wet, stormy night; This goal is engineered and scored amid the insolent remnants of the huge, regal, Broomloan-sized tifo unfurled pre-kick off. It’s now reduced to bin bags blowing untidily across the badly exposed pitch like so much flotsam washed up by the blue, blue, blue sea of Ibrox on which it was launched.

    We’re sunk.

  18. After the best part of five months and what feels like an eternity, Rangers are finally back in SPFL action tomorrow lunch-time. And, off the back of a fairly impressive friendly programme, fans are excited to see what Steven Gerrard in his third season as Rangers manager can deliver during this campaign. Can we offer a sustained title challenge? Can we take an extra step in the domestic cups? Will we be able to maintain our progress in European competition?

  19. Let’s be honest, it’s not just Celtic fans phoning Radio Clyde who thought our Veolia Trophy win was tainted. Instead of becoming a screamingly Freudian meme on it this week, Frank the call-in caller should have tuned into Rangers Twitter last week. There plenty of our very own fans regarded our last four or five wins the same way the French FA saw Ryan Kent’s red card in Lyon - i.e., doesn’t really count because it was only a friendly.

  24. Rangers have in previous years had criticism over the use of their youth academy, due to the fact the youth facilities are the best in the country yet the return from academy graduates to fully fledged first team players has often not been good enough. If we rewind to Division 3 (I’m sorry) many critics point to the possibility of doing the journey with far more academy players and not doing so being a failure. There is also an argument to say that crop in particular weren’t fantastic, however.

  28. Potentially the most talented player playing his trade in the SPL, there is no doubting the value of Alfredo Morelos to the Gers.
