Rangers fans...

When you got the the chance to start over a few years ago and decided to employ the same shabby standards and views as the old club, i felt that it wasn't really paving the way for a new beginning.

talk that you were out for revenge because it was everyone elses fault your club got liquidated was silly. Perhaps one day you will realise that you have nobody to blame but yourself and that its not "ra tims" fault.

Anyway, you made your way to the premiership and began chat about issuing celtic with the "challenge" that we supposedly havent had the past few years, though thats now seen to be nonsense given the huge gap this season.

with this in mind, who do you consider your rivals to be?

certainly can't be celtic, you are not remotely a threat to the champions of scotland.

Aberdeen?

Hearts?

Who would you say?

Ivan, what's your thoughts on Fraser? He looks like he's missing a lung!

That Martin Boyle is honking too and he was running amok on Friday!

I like Scott Fraser. He never hides from the ball, he takes it in well, is good technically and draws a lot of fouls. He's started adding an edge to his game this season too where he's trying to score more goals and he's getting a little more stuck in.

He is however very soft. He gets a lot of stick from the United support for that which I don't think is very fair, but it is what it is. He's still a young player so we'll see how he develops, but I like him.

i'd agree with that, thats what makes next year so interesting should hibs get up.

hibs will be the job that shows what he's about imo.

Bolton and Celtic were either ridiculously healthy or nearly deed.

Ivan fair doos. Just whenever I see him it just looks like he gives up too easily and doesn't have the energy or strength to cope in that position.

Surprised Obadeyi doesn't play, he's a decent player with a good bit of pace.

I think Lennon has plastered over a lot of cracks there to be honest. The solution in January was to get Commons and Humphries after United caught them but as I said earlier they are 11 points worse off than this stage last season and that was before Stokes came in. He has also signed a lot of older players, if they lose McGinn and Cummings in the summer they could really struggle next season.

I know a Hibs fan who said this season they have been absolutely horrendous to watch.

A lot of United fans are similar in their views about Fraser and I can understand it to be honest. I think there's a player there though. He's one of the few with a real bit of quality about him.

Obadeyi is honking to be honest. Loads of pace, doesn't know how to use it. For me he's an impact player of the bench and that's where he's been at his best this season.

The objective for Hibs is to get up, simple as that, and they are in a very good position to do it now. Last 2 years they played pretty football under Stubbs but ultimately failed in the play offs.

They looked like a pretty good outfit on Friday, that was without McGinn starting too. Pretty sure Cummings has been on the bench for most of the season too.

Lennon's football isn't pretty but Hibs would have known that, brought him in to get them up and odds on he will at this point.

The signing of Humphries looks to be a good one too

As I said earlier mate, with the budget they have they should definitely win the league. It'll be very hard for us to stop them and I'm just pleased we're in a position where we can still challenge.

Falkirk are that annoying team you want to be avoiding in the play offs!

To be fair to Houston, he's done a cracking job there. Had Rangers, Hearts and Hibs to contend with over the last few seasons, as well as Utd this year but there are always up there and will be in the play offs again causing problems

RnR agree but looking beyond that they don't look as well equipped to compete in the top league as they have the last couple of years if they do come up. They will need to seriously rebuild and invest, they have an older side and some very average players. Guys like Martin Boyle and James Keatings will not be good enough in the top flight.

Smid last season it was the same though, Stokes was a big signing for them and Henderson played a big part but ultimately they were loans and wouldn't have been there this season.

I think the club must be at the stage now where this season is promotion at all costs no matter how they get there, which is understandable. Now that the Scottish Cup has been won there will be no prisoners taken if they don't
