Fantastic display in Poland on Thursday night with even the Polish press praising the Gers.
What a finish from Itten. Must confess I thought he'd taken the ball too wide.
The second was the icing on the cake. Total control throughout.
The improvement is immense and have resulted in much needed income at this time of no fans.
Biggest problem for SG is which keeper to pick. Certainly the best 2 in Scotland.

Dun Utd away tomorrow and I'm looking for a convincing win for the Gers of 3-0 .

Lennon really unhappy as he hears the celtic board (or is that bored) have went behind his back and approached the Iceland manager.

2-1. Happy with the 3 points but we were wasteful in front of goal.
Morelos looks overweight and I think his chances are running out.
I would prefer Roofe down the middle with Itten to his right.
We dominated most of the game especially the 2nd half but always dicey with just the one goal lead.

What a free kick from Tavernier. As good as you'll ever see.
17 goals and before you mention penalties he has had more goals from open play than Edouard and Christie combined.
Surely the standout for player of the year even at this early stage.
Report stewarty b December 14, 2020 8:06 PM GMT
Tavernier is our best player. (IMHO) The problem is I don't know how long he has left in his contract. Other big clubs are bound to be sniffing about. If I was Gerrard I would go to the board asking to double his wages and get him on a minimum four year extension.

I watch quite a bit of Belgian league football and I would say that Standard Liege are a much better side than Antwerp and I can`t see Rangers having much problems with them, but you just never know for sure. They need a good run to keep Scotland`s current UEFA proficiency mark, which gives us two Champions League places next season but Czechs are creeping up on us.
Report stewarty b December 15, 2020 6:38 PM GMT
Morelos out for the next two games after a stupid elbow job. Yes we can score goals from all over but the way things are going we cannot depend on Defoe for the answer. Perhaps Gerrard will be eyeing up a new striker because in the last six games we have won most of the goals have come from midfield.

Personally I would take 10 million (or less?) for Morelos and invest in someone who is a true centre forward and can take advantage of all the chances we are creating. And make no mistake we are creating chances but you need someone to tuck them away.

Roofe and Ittin both strikers who are settling nicely into the team so I doubt that SG at this time will be getting worried given that the goals are still coming.

We've scored 71 goals this season in 27 games.
43 in 17 league games
24 in 9 european games
4 in 1 league cup tie.

I would imagine those stats stand up against any other team in Europe. I can't see what your issue is Stew.
Report stewarty b December 15, 2020 10:58 PM GMT
It's not so much an issue aka. My main point is that if we had a top class striker who knew where the back of the net was that 71 goals could easily read 85 imo. Thanks for the stats btw.

Best to just let the bhoys get over excited as they play with themselves over winning another minor domestic cup. If that makes them pleased with themselves so be it.

The only important thing in Scotland over the weekend is that Liverpool Legend Gerrard and his Gers get another 3 points against Well. Like a European trophy, another competition that is actually really worth winning.
