    Does it look worse on us? The way that football works they are always going to be more up for a game against us and their energy levels and performances will go up that extra few percent. If you are suggesting that we are out of the title race then pointing out that our rivals are also dropping points is completely relevant.
    I wouldn't say that stating there were no fans there is contradicting because supporters and atmosphere is completely different to not having the manager there. They are two completely different things. Atmospheres do impact games of football but I am not sure how much not having your manager on the sideline would really impact the Rangers players on the pitch, they probably didn't even notice.

    Yes, possession won't win you matches goals do but the fact we went there and dominated the ball and probably should have got something says that there isn't much of a gap betwen ourselves and The Huns. Finally I would say that suggesting that performances and results should improve when key players are back is reasonable.

    Wee Ned. Do you always look down on the working class?

    Nah.

    Most of your points are completely invalid as they ignore the hard evidence right in front of your face.

    Completely delusional. I’m honestly jealous of you as I would love to be blindly optimistic as well. It would make it a lot easier to take given the fact we operate like a wee diddy club.

    Yes. Your patter is still *.

    We also do not have a free kick specialist like most teams have. They are equal to a goal per game.

    Maybe but we still should have had more then enough to win that game. Worst performance under Ange from us so far. We were dreadful in the final third. Never really had any period when we were really getting at them and putting them under sustained pressure just little flashes here and there.

    Plus the pitch. Not making excuses because we lost I said it before the game and have said it many times whether we win or not almost every game we play on these dreadful plastic pitches is awful from a spectacle and entertainment stand point.

    That is three defeats in a row and six out of seven in away games this season. I like Ange and the football can be scintillating particularly at home but his one track approach will not work here. His continuation of playing Turnbull and Rogic in a three man midfield will lead us to more days like this. Inverted full backs in every single game is idealism gone mad. He is going to need to learn some pragmatism or he is gone and as for that * Kennedy the sooner our manager can bring in his own trusted lieutenants the better. The Board bear serious responsibility here as well, they need this appointment to go well or they will be crucified and won't survive.

    See being honest you know what really annoys me the most about today is there was absolutely no surprises? For the last 3 years we have played them there and struggled with their low block, poor park and their kick and rush, game spoiling approach. I know Ange hasn’t been there before but we kept the coaching staff who have played their plenty.

    To go into the game and completely play into their hands was ridiculous. See after an hour you could see it wasn’t working. Scales who knows if he is good enough but from the little I have seen he can header the ball. Why not even try something like putting him up with Ajeti?

    Someone who might have got on the end of the 100 crosses, we keep throwing the ball into the box against their big centre halves for Ajeti to try challenge them. On their park you aren’t going to dribble past them, as they are so deep and it’s difficult to carry the ball on. You need to find another way not just keep trying to do the same thing that hasn’t worked for the team before.

    Writing has been on the wall for him for a while, would like to get his Aussie fan club on here opinion, surely he had to adapt in the past. Like 2 nil up away in Europe and we are flooding full backs into the centre mid with 10 mins to go in first half. Then neither an ability to overwhelm or smart out a victory away from home domestically.

    aye I live in leeds and my Yorkshire son suffers for his love of Celtic, only plus on my side is he doesn’t have to put up with huns at home and he’s NEVER seen an orange walk, but I feel guilty for his pain

    Shocking result. Not good enough.


    Club on a side issue needs to put pressure on Spfl to remove the plastic pitches from top flight football.

    That was totally * but, sadly, expected. We always struggle on that horrible "pitch" and we never seem to be up for the battle, both physically and mentally, against a team who we all know will try to boot us off the park. Add to that there were way too many players who were very poor - especially McCarthy, Turnbull, Abada, Jota, Ajeti, and Welsh. I'd say that only Hart gets a pass mark and he actually saved us from even a more embarrassing defeat. Starting to get worried and our only saving grace was the huns dropping points as well
