The latest thoughts and opinions from the writers team at Gersnet.
  1. With another international break imminent, Rangers host Motherwell this Sunday in another important match at Ibrox. Recent weeks have been frustrating for fans, players and manager Steven Gerrard alike with just one win in the last five games: the team haven't played badly but inconsistency, attacking impotency and defensive mistakes have seen us lose games or drop points we should have won.

  3. After what was a fairly frustrating European night at Ibrox during the week, the big games keep on coming for Rangers.  The clocks might only be going back later tonight as we approach Halloween but already we've played 22 games this season.  And, so far at least, progress has been pretty good.

  5. When the Ibrox fan-zone scandal first leaked out it is fair to say that most Rangers fans knew something wasn’t quite right. The recent revelations via good work by Club1872 in the form of freedom of information requests proved our suspicions to be well-founded.

  7. Rangers will bid to maintain their strong start to their Europa League campaign when they host Rapid Vienna at Ibrox next Thursday. Steven Gerrard’s men vanquished Shkupi, Osijek, Maribor and FC Ufa during four qualifying ties to roar into the group stage of the competition. They landed in a group of death alongside Villarreal, Spartak Moscow and Rapid Vienna, but they have made a superb start and confidence should be high among the troops.

  10. It's Friday morning and I have to admit I'm still basking in the glow of last night's excellent draw in Spain. OK, it might not have been our best ever European performance and we didn't even win the match but the positives are there for all to see.

  11. While playing two games a week puts a strain on the players, it is absolutely great for the supporters only having to wait three or four days for the chance to watch the famous. The games will be coming quick and fast up until Christmas due to the teams fantastic performances in the Europa league. After climbing the mountains of the qualifying stages as one of the few teams to go through to the group stages from the first qualifying round, we now start the first round of the group stages against the Spanish Europa League regulars, Villarreal.

  13. After a whirlwind set of opening fixtures which began on the 12th of July against little known Shkupi and ended in disappointment against somewhat more familiar opposition on the 2nd of September, Gerrard and his team have finally had a chance to take a breather, regroup and prepare for this next set of crucial fixtures ahead of the October international break.

  16. We've seen and heard a lot since Steven Gerrard became the Rangers manager pretty much exactly three months ago.  As much as the sheer profile of Gerrard the player excited even the most negative of Rangers fans, there were understandable doubts and scepticism.  This was a untried manager with only 18 months as a youth coach on his CV.  Sure, Gerrard had incredible success as a player but there were (still are?) no guarantees about his managerial prospects.

  18. Here we are in the Europa League Play-off round with the majority of our support convinced that the tie against FC Ufa is pretty much a formality.....Who'd have thought it ? Not me, I saw the EL group stages 2018/19 as unrealistic, but an excellent, solid start from the new management team together with good recruitment and a slice of luck in the draw see us 180 minutes from making the groups and all that follows from that.

  20. Before we get ahead of ourselves, this is very early in the season but this is a Rangers team unrecognisable to other sides recently. Mentally the switch has been sensational, the tactical astuteness of such a young squad and manager helped by the ever impressive Michael Beale has been so pleasing in the sense of going away to the likes of Osijek and Maribor with a different game plan and executing it. Add in the impressive work from the fitness and medical staff, then a more rounded football operation is bearing fruit for Rangers so far.

  21. The games continue to come thick and fast for Steven Gerrard and his Rangers players with their eighth competitive game in little over a month. However, given they remain unbeaten, who's counting?!

  22. This stems from a conversation with my brother on the phone before the Maribor game and then the aftermath of that 3-1 win. My brother said, “This is different, Gerrard doesn’t have to be here. But he is and it’s great.”

  24. I am sure we all know the syndrome of the quick fix. You know something is not working right but you go for the cheap fix. Like your vacuum cleaner hose is ripped and you put tape around it to keep it going for another few months. I had the same thing for the last two years with my car. My rear door gas dampers were not working properly. I think I have sprayed a fortune of oil or silicone spray on them to try and get them to work lighter. It even got so bad recently that instead of retracting and extending they were jumping off the ball joint. Again the silicone spray came out. Works great for a few days and then it is back to the same slog of pushing the rear door up like a body builder lifting weights. Then a few weeks ago I had pushed the door up. The gas damper sprung off the ball joint and the rear door came crashing down onto my head. Only then did I decide it was time to replace the old dampers. On to Ebay and for twenty euros I ordered two new dampers and fitted them on within five minutes. Now I only have to open the door about three inches and the door opens itself up to the full open position. Now I am mad that I tortured myself for two years going for what I thought was the cheap mend.

  25. Football and politics don’t mix, they say, and most agree they shouldn’t be mixed. Unfortunately they are being mixed. A common phrase read on social media is “my voting won’t be decided by my football team”. That’s all well and good but the system of party politics is flawed in that regard. Football may be well down your list of voting priorities, and rightly so, but it may be very high on the agenda of the candidate that you are voting for. Just because you might take your vote seriously, you think through how it affects your family circumstance or sensibilities, it is naïve to assume that everyone else does – most importantly including the guy who’s got the badge pinned on his chest. So when you think you’ve voted for better working conditions or far reaching government contracts, what you’re actually going to get that term is major upgrades for the Parkhead footprint and obstructions to any progress in the area around Ibrox.

  27. After the conclusion of World War Two, Scottish football reconvened for season 1946/47. In the intervening seventy-two seasons, we have only faced Aberdeen in a League Championship opener on two occasions. This Sunday's match will be the third, all three have been/are Pittodrie fixtures. Thus, league beginnings with the Dandies are the proverbial hen's teeth. Looking at the previous collectors' items might show a way ahead for two days hence?

  28. With only a few days left until the start of the new Scottish league season, Rangers fans are in reasonably fine fettle ahead of both the away opener in Aberdeen and, firstly, tonight's home Europa League second leg qualifier against Osijek. Yes, the performances so far - in the competitive games at least - may not have raised many eyebrows but the results, at least, have been good. Add in impressive friendly wins at home to Bury and Wigan with no goals yet conceded across all five games so far then not only have Rangers demonstrated a defensive improvement but they have shown an ability to get forward at pace to create chances and score goals.
