    Sure.. it might but not sure it will. The big issue for them is that git with the silly deal he got from those chancers running club. Newcastle owner. He would have been wise to have renegotiated it as nobody buys the stuff due to it. Better 50% of something than 95% of nothing. So can only conclude he is doing it to damage the club.

    Yeah, Mike Ashley... You might find that Craig Whyte actually still owns Rangers! Plus, if this trial goes tits up, Rangers could end up being stripped of titles.

    Na, they wont happen. Whyte will be lucky to get a suspended sentence I think. fancy 5 years myself. Titles I cannot see. it would cause so much litigation its hard to imagine. Pointless too as whoever was awarded them would hardly be able to boast they won when they didnt.
    Believe me there is a lot of courtroom appearances to go. Im surprised that whyte was the only one in court so far. Charlie Green deserves a stretch too

    I note that Gers got out of jail today, with two late goals against Partick Thistle.... Didn't see the match, so don't know what the performance was like. Hopefully better than last week?

    Late goals in games (think of the 3-0 win at Pittodrie, the 1-1 draw at Celtic Park and now this), seems to be a feature of the 'Caixinha era', which I guess is no bad thing. Scoring late on gives the opposition little time to fight back, but it's a bit of a nerve-jangler for the fans!

    Anyway, apparently the board will be backing Caixinha with a "considerable sum" of cash, which will allow him to sign a load of new players in the summer.

    He'll need it, to finish above Aberdeen next season, let alone Celtic, who will also be investing heavily, but with a view of progressing to the latter stages of the Champions League, which scarily for the rest of the teams in the SPL will simply take them to another level.

    In terms of Rangers, the only players I'd keep from the current team are Fotheringham, Hill, McKay and Miller, and in a better team, Joe Garner could *perhaps* flourish and show why he cost nearly £2m. The rest are well below Rangers standard and need to go, but that might not be easy, as some of them are on 2-3 year contracts and won't want to move anywhere for less money....

    In any case, the respective transfer dealings of both old firm teams in the summer, will be most interesting, and in terms of Rangers, Pedro will *have* to get it right!

    Marco.

    The first goal was Rangers first shot on target and the second was their only other attempt, woeful Thistle should have won.
    Tactics and performance way below what was required

    Another 'unattractive' win for the Gers today (2-1 against Hearts), but a win nonetheless... I honestly think that, despite what many Rangers fans think (listening to the radio phone ins) Pedro deserves a chance and can bring some success to the club.

    yes, get 3rd wrapped up and thus Europe next season, however short lived it may be, and playing like that it will be. thought rangers bossed it all the way tbh and stats agree. Hearts will miss out now I expect as st's should get 4th.
    Pedro has plans agreed in principle to add to squad and offload close season and is giving players a short break only to get them ready which is imo correct.
    Certain, that he will have to do better next season.
