Excellent second half performance from Rangers, and they'll be doubly delighted with Celtic getting gubbed by the same score as well. Happy days for Leo eh! ;)

What a second half for Rangers ,I thought Ejaria was brilliant ,his gait may look awkward but that belies the control the lad has over a football. Delighted for Gerrard ,this team under his tutelage seem to be moving forward in terms of quality with every game they play .
Haven't seen the game yet mate....recorded & will watch this afternoon. From reports I've read I struggle to comprehend how we can put in a performance like last night over 90 minutes yet last Sunday the team were so abysmal over the 90. I still maintain that there is a slight 'fear factor' with Rangers when playing on some of those plastic pitches ( I can't think of another reason). I've watched them over several seasons and they more often than not put in a poor performance.

Tbh Salty, Rangers won't be in the slightest concerned with how Celtic done & neither am I. I couldn't care less either way. But you're correct.... feeling very pleased at our result.

A fairly evenly matched first half but Jesus....how the nearside linesman could miss two offsides right in front of him in the build up to Rapid's goal is disgraceful. The second was so fucking obvious it was laughable if it were not so serious. However within a minute Rangers were back on level terms. But...WOW, what a second half....this is what I want to see....closing the opposition down, challenging, attacking football. Agree with Redpelt about Ejaria....looking tremendous playing alongside Coulibally and Arfield plus we still have Dorrans. Rangers 2nd was a stonewall penalty and excellently stuck away by Tavernier but the third....great chasing by Candeias who got a break then brilliantly backheeled to Morelos who slotted in the third. All in all a great win and after the game....another fine and intelligent interview by Steven Gerrard....he is loving it at Ibrox!

Is this the day the tied turned in favour of the Old Firm ?

Big wins for Celtic and Rangers.

Rangers especially after beating Hearts, who have been the form side so far.

Another excellent result beating Hearts 3-1 at home (we really will have to show the same commitment and form on our domestic travels though). Not being able to see the game I had to listen to radio snippets from pundits who were at the game and from what I've read to form my opinion and I have really no complaints...well just a little one. I cannot undertstand why Katic, who had been excellent in almost every game he played forming a fine partnership with Conor Goldson, has been dropped in favour of Joe Worrall who has been not too bad. I have heard (and I don't know the truth in this) that part of the loan agreement with Forest was that Worrall had to be given X amount of game time. Anyway, back to yesterday....First half Hearts were destroyed from 2 minutes in till the 45th albeit they had a couple of chances which were well saved by McGregor. Goals from Kent who is getting stronger/better every game has been a revelation and is loving it at Ibrox under Steven Gerrard, Morelos with one of the best/cheekiest backheels you'll see this season and Scotty Arfield from close in done for Hearts. Second half they had a player sent off for his 2nd yellow but a lapse from Rangers let them score with a 6 yard box header. Rangers still had chances 2nd half but as so often happens with almost every team once you are so far ahead concentration drops. Still, overall a fine performance and result. Long may it continue!

It was right in front of the assistant referee as well. A genuine WTF moment.

Robbie Nielson is the new boss at Dundee United
Yeah, seen that. Suppose he was one of those coaches/managers out of work and waiting for some unfortunate to get the boot (the managerial roundabout). He did quite well at Hearts but for whatever reason decided to test himself down south with MK Dons with no more than average success there. Possibly the reason he moved from Hearts was the shadow of Craig Levein was always hovering about the place....just my opinion. He won't be a miracle worker at the Arabs because they have been in freefall for a while now. Will he succeed there....just need to wait and see.

Had to happen, even the solitary win we got was pretty fortunate. Just get someone solid in who can try and fix that defence and we might survive this.
