It seems that Mr Gerrard doesn’t believe his team “have the bottle” for a title challenge anymore, while many have been crowing on social media whilst comparing this latest slip up to his own famous personal slip whilst Liverpool were challenging for the title no one has considered how this will affect both his future and that of Rangers. The various memes and gifs referencing Murty, may indeed be funny, but they ignore the implications of another failed title challenge whilst I personally don’t think he will give up on management as a career, he may decide to give up on Rangers. It’s no doubt that he’s enviously glancing south and watching his former England team mate, Lampard and his Chelsea team progressing, continuous failures with Rangers will make his dream of managing Liverpool fade further away. No doubt there is no chance of him taking over whilst Klopp is content to stay and challenge for titles and cups, but even the chance of getting into the Liverpool set up will fade further away into the distance the longer Gerrard remains without a significant managerial success.
 

Bottles flung at players, morelos subject to racial abuse by fans and mainstream media, employees of the club filled in, list goes on. Seems to be open season against the club and those associated with it.

There are times when you are really pleased that you support a "diddy team" like Inverness Caley Thistle. Watching these various antics, now is one of those times.

Quarter final here we come.
Except when you play the Staggies, though obviously that'll not be this season. :biggrin:

"Accept the fact you support a club that cheated the taxman" repeated ad nausea by every celtic supporter who are not obsessed no sireee.

No, that was a different club, Rangers.

Now they support The Rangers.

An entirely different club.

Almost every SPL club bar Killie voted against Rangers to stay in the top tier. Much of the opposition was led by the late Turnbull Hutton, of Raith Rovers.

Newco Rangers started in the 3rd tier at the expense of Spartans (I believe)

All Timmy's fault though.....

To quote “Butch”

There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
It is great to see that you have finally moved on from the Daily Record to one of the finest writers in the English language.

Well done you.

With both Celtic and Rangers in action last night what did we learn? No doubt many Celtic fans are glad that an away goal was scored to take to Parkhead, others are bemused that we did not continue to play in the the second half as we had in the first, some blaming the manager for trying to “manage” the game and others blaming individual players for errors or “poor performances”. Was Lennon’s tactics wrong, did he fail to react with sufficient speed to the change in the home team?

In a rain soaked Ibrox (did anyone else wonder if Noah was in the crowd) Rangers managed to make a significant comeback against some determined opponents. As I was unable to watch or listen to either game last night and was relying on furtive checks on social media, I was convinced they were due another “brave but futile” performance. I presumed this would further erode their team morale domestically meaning more dropped points. Unfortunately I got a nasty shock when I managed to check the results much later.

As to the return fixtures I see Celtic’s home advantage and confidence being too much for the Danes, who will battle bravely but hopefully forlornly in the Parkhead cauldron. Whilst I think that the away goals against Rangers will be pivotal and too big a hurdle for them (obviously in an ideal world they’ll get a proper spanking, leading to an ignominious slide down the domestic table) to overcome.

For 60 minutes Braga were strolling it and left us chasing shadows. A somewhat surprising change of Aribo at LWB for Barasic led to a drastic upturn in performance along with Hagi Junior. Still cant quite believe we came away with the win which leaves myself and most other bears frustrated knowing the levels we can actually play at. Seems to be the problem we face is breaking down teams who park the bus but teams that actually play football (Europe and celtic) see us play to our strengths.
