McGregor will receive the exact same treatment on Monday and we all know why.

Why is it always so fooking frantic every time we win the ball back?! Hot potato stuff the whole game.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Because we have Celtic or ex celtic players as the backbone to the team?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Aye the same Celtic who dominate possession every domestic game they play 😂
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Wasn't getting at you JBJ, it seems that some others think that because a player plays for Rangers he has no right to be there...none of them are really any good
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Leave me out of that. I'm more than happy when good rangers players play for scotland and have happily cheered many of them over the years without question.

I'd include some of my favourites....Jardine, goram, miller, gough, bett, McCall....actually it would be quite a long list.

As for mcgregor...there's never been a lot between him and Gordon but mcgregor is probably slightly the better of the two. On current form, he has to be in the team.

My earlier comment was purely about Ryan jack. He shouldn't be playing international football...and he shouldn't be playing for rangers.

If you all want to convince yourself that he good enough is then knock yourselves out. It partly explains why your club can't get out of the mess it's in.

There are several dreadful footballers at Celtic...and it's regularly discussed by Celtic fans on here.

If your players aren't very good, call it out and don't think it's anything sinister when others do.

Fwiw, I think jack might be marginally better than kouassu...doesn't mean I like Celtic any less than I like rangers.

Just as unimaginative as the performance. It was a horror show of basic errors. And it shows we’re in for another doomed campaign with him at the helm.

Utterly depressing. It’s amazing that teams like Wales perform greater than the sum of their parts. We are the opposite. On paper we look like we’ve got some decent players - put them into a team together, add a sch!t manager and we become a laughing stock

I’m at the point I couldn’t give a hoot about international footy. Can’t wait for the domestic football to come back. And hope all our players return injury free.

Let's be honest...he was far from first choice.

The SFA are now restricted to guys who've been out of work for a while or rookies.

Scotland are not good enough to play 3 at the back need to go back to basics and play 442/4231.

posted on 8/9/18

Agree Fan.

Still room for KT and Roberson but a back 4 is more natural & solid.

posted on 8/9/18

KT was good enough at RB to play him there

McGregor
Tierney Souttar McKenna Robbo
McGinn McTom
McGregor Armstrong Snodgrass
Griffiths

Something like that not sayin the personnel have to be as such but ya know

Also if I am correct none of the players play 3 at the back at club level?
