Sounds great Krc-fan - just have to wait and see if they make the appointment. I wonder what my friend @Boyne  thinks about Preud'homme?

@carrickblue I remember him as a player but haven't kept up with his managerial career so am not sure what to think. I saw a rumour this morning that Derek McInnes could be appointed early next week.

A good result yesterday. An impressive card display before kick-off.

A disappointing result on Saturday. However, a wonderful and moving reception for Fernando Ricksen. So sad to see him suffering from ALS (Motor Neuron Disease). Looking at pictures of him on the touchline at Ibrox showed what the reception meant to him. His illness puts football into perspective.

Well having watched Chelsea's woeful performance at West Ham, the long suffering Rangers fans amongst us now have to get through a home game v Ross County. In a week when the club was rejected by Derek McInnes you have to think it can't get much worse, come on Rangers!

I haven't watched the footage of the game but by all accounts it was a shambolic performance from the 'Gers. A win would have been great after Aberdeen won. But not all doom and gloom. Septic were thumped 4-0 today by Hearts.

So nearly 2 months after ditching Pedro, the Rangers board plump for Graeme Murty for the remainder of the season. This probably means they were unable to attract anyone else as much as it show some satisfaction with what GM has done over the last 6 weeks.

You get the occasional moan about the Chelsea board on the Shedend, usually about the lack of new signings etc...I can imagine the constant outcry on here if the Chelsea board performed like the Rangers board!

Still, it's important Rangers fans get behind GM and the team, some sort of positive result against the Tarriers in a couple of weeks' time would give everyone a lift.

Hard to muster any optimism for tomorrow's Old Firm. If the Gers can avoid getting hammered that'll be a positive. A draw would be good, a Rangers win would be amazing. It could be a tough watch. 

@carrickblue Like you, I'm finding it hard to muster optimism for today's game. I won't be able to watch the whole game as will be travelling to the Chelsea game. Hope to watch bits of the game, depends on which pub we go to. A draw would be good. If we win, I think I'll be drunk for several days. WATP

Just heading up to Curlys to watch game,wouldn't pay £49 to sit in that sh*thole,as carrickblue said ,will be a tough watch and best we can hope for is a draw,all the same as the saying goes It's A Funny Old Game.

We could have and probably should have won that. Second half we were great. Only Gordon's shin pad stopped a great chance for Morelos. I think we shocked them and the hom crowd wasn't happy at all. 

Heads held  high after that ::clap2::

Unfortunately I didn't see any of the game but saw a few updates. A great result. More than I hoped for. Always nice to get something from their place. @Larky Blue What was Curly's like? I bet the place was bouncing.

Full Sash bash mate,we always get a dj  in for these games pub was jumping and packed out.Second half performance was great and I think we could have sneaked it.Just wish we could play like that against the so called smaller teams that we've dropped points to all season.My big mate Smiggy reckons he knows you,went to a Scotland v England game years ago with your uncle's.

I saw some highlights on the news. Must try and watch extended highlights later today. As you say, if only they could play like that against the smaller teams. I think I know who Smiggy is. Think the last Scotland v England game I went to at Hampden was in 1982. I must get up to Larkhall next year. It's a while since I've been up. Means I can also nip into the Bleachfields. Have seen some of the food it produces and looks great.

Did you see that Nottingham Forest sacked Warburton. Had a quick look on Follow Follow and most of the fans are happy about that.

The Bleachfield is doing well,next to Curlys as well,we'll have a pint or two when you come up.

Rangers were excellent, really took the game to them and fully deserved to win. Tavernier was outstanding, best player out there by a mile.

Tavernier easily man of the match ,consistency letting us down,play ok against so called bigger teams and struggle against the ones at bottom of the league.

No one's been posting in here for a while and in the meantime Rangers have quietly gone on a decent run and look as though they're beginning to develop a bit more consistency and a greater threat in attack.

Hoping to avoid giving them the kiss of death but I expect them to get past Falkirk today and then we've Celtic at Ibrox next Sunday 

Come on the Gers!
