  1. Hopefully Trev isn't too badly injured. As for the game itself, in forty odd years of following the 'well, I am struggling to remember when we ever got an even break against Hearts. I would love it if someone other than the ugly sisters were to win the league, but just not them. Levein is a tosser of the highest order so the play acting and time wasting is scarcely a surprise. I never want us to go down that route in terms of attitude and performance. Who do we play next?

    Since 1980 they have failed to qualify for two world cups. They have qualified for eight finals in that period and only failed to get out of their group once. They have gone on to finish fourth in 1986 and third in 2018. If they consider that the footballing wilderness then Goid alone knows what they would make of Scotland's performances over the same period.

    Would be surprised and disappointed if we didn't.

    Two one to us at the end, so we make the third round. Well done to all involved. Good to have some football during the international break.

    Good to hear. Let's hope that a fair number of them can make the step up and go on to have worthwhile senior careers. It would be the final sign that we, as a club, are doing something right. I am generally pretty impressed with what Craigan and Co. have achieved over the past couple of seasons. A few more showing that they can perform at first team level would be icing on the cake.

    Good result, and just what we needed. Hopefully we can keep this run going, though I think we have Hearts next, so not easy.

    Extended working holiday? Croatia is very nice.

    The media are what they are, and they know what side their bread is buttered on. I have it on good authority that Bob Crampsay's career as a commentator in the late 1960s suffered because he had the gall to speak his mind. Wanting a fair crack off them is as pointless as wanting a level playing field with referees. It ain't going to happen. As for this game, a much improved showing and any game where you get an injury time equaliser is a point won and acceptable. We now have to follow it up with a performance and result in our next match.

    Hopefully we give it a real go today. We have nothing to lose and need to somehow kick start our season and at home against them is as good a chance as any. Get in their faces and let them know that they are not going to have things their own way and who knows what we might achieve? Realistically, if they were a team of world beaters, then they wouldn’t be at Ibrox. Poor as we have been, there is no reason why we cannot get a result.

    Yeah, this, every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Craig Thomson is refereeing, so no different from before he made his comments.

    Rangers are not world beaters. We need to concentrate on our game and what works for us. If it becomes as bit of a scrap, and we get a fair hearing from the officials in that regard, then we can take something from it. As for Hartley's comments. Inappropriate and misjudged. He will learn from it, hopefully. However, we need a captain who will lead and not take a backward step, so I am not too bothered if he isn't quite ready to join the diplomatic corps.

    A two nil victory over Hearts? We’d take that most days. Good result for whatever the team is called.

    Time for the manager to remind the press of his red card statistics from last season.
