7-1

Good to see Motherwells particular brand of 'football' getting found out yesterday. It was an excellent win for Rangers and good to see a variety of players scoring.

I am both delighted and surprised to see us just two points behind the inevitable league winners Celtic at this stage of the season.

You have to laugh at Robinsons comments after the game.He has an absolute cheek trying to point the finger at Morelos over McHughs sending off.

Most teams we play target Morelos with heavy tackles through the back, off the ball barges etc to try and get him to react. Motherwell are one of the worst offenders who take it in turn to 'leave a bit on' the wee man.

McHugh got booked for persisitent fouling and then immediately dived in and gave away another free kick straight after. They just cannot help themselves.

It was great to see them exposed for what they are yesterday - which is an extremely limited football team who have nothing to turn to when the bully boy tactics fail.

Strong refereeing is exactly what we need to protect the better players in our league like Morelos.

Would have thought Tierney would be pushing for poty this season instead.

Ratsjuice……so rry a bit late but a ?gree 100% about the hammer throwers leaving their mark on Ataykayi – same as Coulibaly v St. Mirren, But why do these players play around at the end of the game when it is already won. Just clear the ball- they and the coaches have to learn or there will be more serious injuries. Thoughts

Atakayi was trying to attack on the right wing and about to put a cross in when he got thumped.

The defender very obviously had it in mind to take out the player and he did it very successfully.

He probably bragged to his mates in the pub about it later on.

Ratsjuice- you are right . I saw the game and saw it coming but given that normal standard of the referee in Scotland, not protecting ball players, do you not think it is up to the coaches to warn players that this will happen near the end of the game and up to players, albeit he is only 17, to be more street wise and just pass the ball when the cloggers are running at you to do the obvious? Afterall we were 7-1 up with 10 minutes to go!! Thoughts?

Oh I saw it coming as well alright! Could definitely have been a booking as it was completely obvious he went for the player.

Perhaps Gerrard is actually to blame for stressing to the players to be relentless and go for the jugular, but I don't think that should stop young creative players trying out their skills.

I don't think there's much Atakayi could have done to avoid it. He only had the ball near the corner flag.

I just think it's a sad indictment on the Scottish game and it says everything about Motherwell. Dirty, dirty b@stards.
