    Yeah, I agree and tbh Motherwell were unlucky not to go in 3 up at the break. Main certainly showed his strength when brushing Tavernier aside to set up the second. Always a hard hard game there as even Celtic found out a few weeks ago.

    Big win for Ross County at the bottom - close the gap on Partick.

    much needed win against Dundee at Ibrox on Saturday. Four goals scored, none conceded, bar and post hit three times although from someone I know who was at the game it wasn't the best performance. Cup semi next Sunday against Celtic. Hoping for a result more than confident.

    Well where to start. Saturday....great and deserved win for Motherwell who were everything Aberdeen were not. Hungry, relentless with a want to win attitude. Aberdeen couldn't handle Motherwell's in your face game (where have I said that before?) and Curtis main in particular....I loved his and Well's 3rd. To be blunt Aberdeen were shite.

    On to Sunday....a total humiliation if I'm being honest. Celtic dominated from start to finish. Although we lost the previous league game we showed an attitude that was sadly lacking yesterday. It looked as if the players were scared to compete. Celtic's goals which didn't come from the two pens were well taken and again showed up our defence for the shambles it has been all season. To be blunter we were awfully shite!

    A fine cup final in the making come May and Celtic better be well prepared for a hard game....much harder than what we gave them yesterday but then again that wouldn't be difficult!

    Really thought you lot would give Celtic a good game yesterday. It shows there is a mental block when you play them when the pressure is on. Do you think you'll be more competitive next season against them?

    Salty....after the previous game at Ibrox where we showed a bit of attitude but still lost I honestly had no faith in them to win...indeed, for the last game I was confident enough to have a good bet on BTTS....not this one mate. I did have a good bet....£60 on over 2.5 goals but expected Celtic to do the scoring which turne dout to be the correct choice. As for next season......not a clue mate but I'll wait and see what happens over the summer.

    One thing is for sure though, you are going to need proper investment in that squad.

    It'll take years for Rangers to bridge the gap, as said it'll take some shrewd investment. Scottish football really needs them back on level terms because the lack of competition for Celtic is ridiculous now.

    Key players now suspended at Rangers - they need the season to end and a decent manager .

    Problem is Liam....where is this investment going to come from ? There certainly isn't a queue of such people/businesses lining up mate. The board have already put in cash (£millions) which will be converted into shares when they have an issue. I'm no financial wizard but the season ticket money alone won't suffice when we're talking about stadium upkeep, wages, hopefully transfers and not just fucking loans. I'm at a low at the moment mate. Only possible high on the horizon is 2nd place but I wouldn't bet on that and I like a punt!

    They're not key players mate. Wallace's position is left wingback which has been more than adequately covered by Declan John since he arrived from Cardiff and imo is a far superior player to Lee Wallace. Kenny Miller has been out of favour for a starting position more often than not this season and a regular on the bench. As the manager prefers to play one up front, the main striker has been Morelos.

    Just heard that Celtic got €32 mill from their European exploits this year, something near 10 times what they get for winning the league. No way Rangers can compete with that. They need to be more targeted in their approach on spending, and try and pull away from Aberdeen first before even thinking about Celtic.

    Said that prior to this season starting mate. Baby steps and hopefully in the right direction and THEN consider the options for targeting Celtic. The way the split fixtures have gone against us we'll be lucky if we get 2nd. Btw...I forecast correctly what our home and away fixtures were going to be.
