Not fooling anyone: These 2 Rangers players must be hated by the fans

By Luke Randall As reported by footballtransfertavern.com Rangers have been rather impressive in Europe this season, despite their unbeaten streak coming to an end against Spartak Moscow not so long ago. The Bluenoses have struggled to mount a title challenge so far this season as they’ve failed to ensure consistency at all times, with slip-ups in winnable games constantly costing them. Sadly, Steven Gerrard has had to deal with a couple of underperformers in the current campaign that just haven’t been able to have any sort of positive impact on proceedings. This problem needs to be sorted out almost immediately as it could affect their push for silverware, with supporters feeling slightly concerned. With that in mind, these TWO Rangers players must be hated by the fans… UMAR SADIQ Umar Sadiq joined on a season-long loan from Italian side AS Roma during the summer transfer window, and it’s safe to say that he has proven to be one of the worst signings in the club’s recent history. The Nigerian forward has been verbally blasted by Gerrard on a number of occasions this season, with his commitment, effort levels and performances coming under the spotlight. So, having failed to provide back-up for Alfredo Morelos and having put in minimal effort …read more

‘What?!’, ‘Its a no from me’ – Some Rangers fans react to rumours of a potential signing

By thedroid Rangers are being linked with a move for the Slovakian defender Martin Skrtel. The highly experienced defender has played with Steven Gerrard at Liverpool and the Rangers boss is well aware of his strengths and weaknesses. Skrtel could be a decent short term option for the Scottish side. As per the latest reports, Rangers could make a move for the centre back soon. It will be interesting to see if they can convince the player to move to Scotland. Regardless of his age, Skrtel has the ability and experience to make a difference in the Scottish League. However, Gerrard will have to ensure that his arrival does not affect the development of talented young players like Katic. Having said that, Rangers could certainly use some more depth in defence. Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the potential transfer and here are some of the best reactions from earlier. Gerrard not giving up on bringing Skrtel to Rangers. Our gaffer is just some man💙 — DALCIO IS THE GOAT (@BenRFC2) November 17, 2018 I wouldn’t even want skrtel tbh — Mr M (@MBS1872) November 16, 2018 What?!

Rangers ‘not giving up’ on Slovakian international, Steven Gerrard could be key to him signing

By Crippy Cooke According to CNN Turkey (h/t Daily Record), Rangers are ‘not giving up’ on Martin Skrtel and cold make an approach for the soon-to-be out-of-contract star. The Premiership outfit are targeting an experienced central defender and Steven Gerrard could be key in Skrtel making the switch to Scotland. The two players together for many years at Liverpool and could renew acquaintances in January or next summer. Skrtel currently plays for Fenerbahce. The Turkish side are currently 12th in the Super Lig with 13 points from 12 games this season, coming off the back of only one win from their last seven. Skrtel is a key player, having played in 10 of their 12 league outings, but his future at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium is uncertain. His contract is up next summer and he may not renew his deal. Rangers are hoping to capitalise on the situation and make a shrewd defensive signing. Gerrard’s men have started the new season brightly, sitting third in the Premier League just two points adrift of leaders Celtic and boasting four wins from their last five. Their defence are coping well this season (11 league goals conceded in 12 games), but Skrtel would …read more

“Could be a David Weir” – Loads of Rangers fans react as Gerrard closes in on January deal

By Ben Goodwin As reported by footballfancast.com Loads of Rangers fans have been reacting to a huge transfer story, as reports claims Steven Gerrard will go back in for Martin Skrtel. According to CNN in Turkey (via Daily Record), Gerrard has not given up on Skrtel, who he wanted to sign this summer. The 33 year-old will be out of contract next summer, and Fenerbahce are reportedly eyeing a deal for Liverpool’s Joel Matip. This could clear the way for Skrtel to leave for a nominal fee in January, or even for free at the end of the season. Gerrard was of course hugely critical of his defence after the calamitous loss to Spartak Moscow, but fans don’t seem too convinced by the interest in Skrtel. The 101-cap Slovakian is a great defender and he loves getting on the scoresheet from set pieces, but he certainly has a mistake or two in him. Either way, you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below… Skrtel could be a Davie Weir type or a Bruno Alves type. However, if we do sign him in the summer, he’d be our best centre half on paper at least. — Jamie (@jamiecurrie89) November …read more

Does Gerrard’s newest appointment show the club are serious about flops?

By David Walton First published by rangersnews.uk Rangers’ loan flops may not end up the failures they could’ve been had Billy Kirkwood not been appointed. Steven Gerrard’s latest appointment, that of the loan manager, is interesting in several ways. Apparently, this is something a lot of the big clubs are doing, but it’s relatively unheard of in Scotland. The idea is that […] The post Does Gerrard’s newest appointment show the club are serious about flops? appeared first on Rangers News.

Derek Johnstone: Deadly finisher Kris Boyd deserves testimonial for contribution to Rangers and Kilmarnock

By original author I am really pleased that Kris Boyd is being honoured with a testimonial down at Rugby Park today as legends from Kilmarnock and Rangers go head to head. People can have a pop at him for his size all they like (I certainly know all about that), but he continually answers them back in the best possible way by sticking the ball in the net. His contribution at Rangers during his first spell at the club in particular was fantastic. He was never going to run the channels for you, but get the ball to him in the box and he would stick it away nine times out of 10. I hope there is a great turnout for a top-class finisher.

Derek Johnstone: I feel for Big Eck, but Rangers just couldn’t take a risk with Ryan Jack

By original author I feel for big Alex McLeish as he goes into the Albania game with Scotland tonight with a patched-up team. The number of call-offs is disappointing, but for me, the national team is a victim of scheduling here with so many important club matches being played either side of this international break. Clubs are never going to allow risks to be taken with their players if they have knocks or strains, and that is why it was absolutely the right decision for Ryan Jack and for Rangers for him to sit this one out. The midfielder has had a torrid time with injuries, and if he isn’t 100%, he simply couldn’t take the chance. I’m hoping there is enough left in the ranks to see us through these two games and into a play-off, and it’s great to see former Rangers player John Fleck get the call for the Israel game.

Rangers hero Nacho Novo opens up on returning to football pitch for first time since heart attack

By Euan McLean Nacho Novo is nervous but some things – or more accurately, some people – are too important to let fear stop him from taking another important step forward in his 
rehabilitation from the health scares that nearly claimed his life. On Saturday, the Rangers idol will run out at Rugby Park for his first proper game of football since his heart attack horror in January heralded a nightmare year of torment. Since the fateful day he collapsed while playing in a legends tournament in Germany, Novo has undergone heart surgery, suffered a stroke months later and subsequently – understandably –battled depression. Thankfully, at last given a clean bill of health by doctors, Novo feels ready to take his tentative first steps back on to a full-size pitch to honour Kris Boyd as his close friend celebrates his testimonial match this afternoon. Nacho Novo sitting up in his hospital bed in Germany following heart surgery Read More That Novo is keen to do so despite all he has been through speaks volumes of the high regard he holds for his former Rangers team-mate. Nevertheless, he freely admits that dark fears will be forced to the back of his mind …read more
