The latest thoughts and opinions from the writers team at Gersnet.
  1. Having just returned from an extended family holiday in the unspoiled blue skies of the Ionian Sea, I know just how hot it is in Eastern Europe at the moment. With temperatures well over 30degC, the heat will certainly be on the Rangers team that plays in Macedonia later this afternoon. However, anything less than progression into the next Europa League qualifying round would only increase that heat further - both on the manager and his players, not to mention those that sanctioned all the summer changes.

  2. Towards the end of last season, we launched our new Gersnet Podcast and we've been delighted with the response across the community with thousands of views and hundreds of subscribers across the various platforms. As promised the pod will be available on a regular basis so today we're very happy to bring you our second episode of season 2018/19!

  3. Brandon Barker, freshly on as a second-half substitute, skipped past James Tavernier with relative ease and cut it back for Jamie MacLaren to bundle over the line and the 2017/2018 season finishes with a 5-5 draw and third place confirmed. If anything summed up our season, that was it. We were the top scorers in the league with 76 goals, three ahead of champions Celtic but conceded exactly double their goals against with 50 conceded resulting in the seventh best defensive record in the league over 38 games.

  4. Scotland may not have qualified for the World Cup but there will be a few players from Scottish Premiership clubs involved in the tournament.

  6. When rumours of Steven Gerrard being linked with the Rangers manager job first appeared on our forum in late April, it's fair to say that my first reaction was to smile disbelievingly then, once I knew there was substance in the rumour, doubt was my next emotion. After all, as much as no-one can deny the quality of Gerrard's playing CV, his managerial experience is minimal and neither is he any expert in Scottish football or Rangers.

  7. There’s a basic rule of thumb that wherever competition exists then you have to put effort in to just stand still, to keep your place. To stay ahead you have to adapt, react and put the work in, put more and better work in than those you’re competing against. As soon as you ease off then others will step up and take your place - especially when that place is at the top of the pile.

As promised the pod will be available on a weekly basis so today we're very happy to bring you our final episode of season 2017/18 though the pod will continue over the summer break.

  9. When Rangers director Alistair Johnston spoke of being 'ahead of the curve' after our Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Celtic, many fans were rightly confused. Surely a 4-0 capitulation against our biggest rivals wasn't a sign of 'making progress' as Johnston suggested? More so when we considered our ongoing battle for anything down to fourth place in the Premiership table.

  11. Steven Gerrard sits on a low-backed chair, electric lights beaming down from above, highlighting his furrowed brow and bearded chin. He is relaxed, leaning back in a tie-less suit, hands resting on his knees. In the enclosed studio, Gerrard is joined by Ian Wright, Glenn Hoddle and presenter Jake Humphrey, as Anfield looms in the background.

  14. Ahead of the third Old Firm game in six weeks, it's fair to say you won't find many Rangers fans feeling confident during the build-up. A period of poor form since we allowed a ten-man Celtic team to come back to win at Ibrox, including an utter capitulation at Hampden a fortnight ago means morale is low amongst most bears. Not to mention a lack of faith in a board that don't seem to share our frustration with recent results.

  15. Rumours around the possible appointment of Liverpool playing legend Steven Gerrard have exploded overnight with stories now suggesting he and Gary McAllister are the favoured management team to take over from Graeme Murty this summer.

  17. I was at a close friend’s stag do in Newcastle over the weekend. Beer, food, racing, karaoke and a bunch of mates I’d not seen for a while – it was magic! And with an Old Firm semi-final on the Sunday afternoon, I was even fairly excited to get back up the road. Unfortunately, an unforeseen two hour delay on the train meant I was going to miss a good portion of the first half. But even a patchy 4G service on the run into Waverley had my good mood evaporating as Rangers got off to an awful start in the game.

  19. On Sunday Rangers will play one of their most important games of the season. We travel to Hampden park for the Scottish Cup Semi-Final against our old rivals Celtic. With the league virtually out of our reach, the season could only really be called a success if we could lift the Scottish cup.

  20. Earlier this week Club1872 responded to some skulduggery from an MSP and a Sun journalist. Clarification was asked for on both spurious stories, with prompt reaction to the latter story (which was retracted), and Club1872 then informed its members of these actions. As a member of Club1872 this is exactly what I want to see from them. It was a fair request, it was handled quickly and professionally and was communicated in a similar fashion. Not much wrong with that, in fact it was a more than decent response in the face of the gutter level behaviour that precipitated it.

  21. Last week, we launched our new Gersnet Podcast and we've been delighted with the response across the community. As promised we're hoping the pod will be available on a weekly basis so today we're very happy to bring you episode two!

  22. One of the new theories of personality is that it is a fluid entity. The days of strictly adhering to Eysenck, Allport and even Freud theorising over dimensions and trait theory being solidified within subjects are being challenged. We adapt and change our personality to evolve within the environment that we face. This environment changes frequently on a daily basis from family to work to friends and even those we like and dislike. Therefore, our personality is required to be a fluid entity as we act out our roles within society’s daily requirements.

  23. After an intense period of testing, panic, technical embarrassment and, eventually, excitement, we're delighted to announce the launch of our new Gersnet Podcast.

  24. OK, I've taken some liberties with the preview title in that it reflects our last game rather than the tricky task facing us this Saturday in Motherwell. Perhaps I should apologise for taking us back to the Kilmarnock capitulation but as I cleared the car of yet more ice this morning, it was difficult not to cast my mind back two weeks.

  25. As most of our followers and members will be aware, we've been doing some testing lately with regard to starting a new Gersnet Podcast.

  26. Like most Rangers fans ahead of last week's match against Celtic, I was confident of a good result. Not 'cocky' as some of the more conspirational of Celtic 'legends' have since suggested - just, for the first time in a long time, cautiously optimistic we could beat our rivals.

  27. As you get older and perhaps (or not) wiser you start to realise what politics is all about. Essentially people will do and say almost anything to further their cause and ultimately score points. In the world of social media virtue signalling is something of a recent twist on old tricks and serves to highlight that no link is too tenuous when there are points to be scored. Of course we in Scotland get our dose of signalling through our media, often from politicians, and usually related to bigotry (or what we’re told is bigotry) and with clock-work guarantee after Old Firm games.

  28. The plan for Glasgow was very different to what we have today, the city was going to be unrecognisable in many, many ways. Some plans just don’t work out.

  29. With a huge match coming up against Celtic at Ibrox on Saturday, there were some great photos from Auchenhowie as Rangers trained this morning.
  30. Last week we were informed that Charles Green and friends will face no further criminal proceedings with regard to their dealings after they bought Rangers. So there we go, another fraud chapter closed. A lot of bears are happy to leave these things in the past – it was a painful time so I understand that. The feel good factor currently on and off the pitch certainly helps to erase bad memories. But for me too many questions remain unanswered and that’s not just confined to Charles Green.
