Physicality in scotland is important. Think that’s the best way they’d overcome Celtic

I agree with that: Pulis has the underdog tactics down to a fine art, and that might help in the games against Celtic and big European opponents. The trouble is every other domestic game, and qualifying rounds in Europe, are against teams when Rangers have to attack, attack, attack. In short, the antithesis of a Tony Pulis team. And at 59 I'm not sure he's going to start, or is even capable of, completely reinventing himself.

Depends who he signs and how good they can be. Open and expansive football isn’t always the way forward when you’re against teams equal or better than you. Leaves you open

Or play like the first team in Edinburgh did today. Which is to say, not lie back and let them dominate the game.

Could go one way or another though. We’ve seen Scottish teams “going for it” and fucking up for a long time now.

Even when we went for it against Man United. On another day they’d have probably beaten us. Football is football.

Hmm, Murty until the end of the season. Won 6 and lost 3 under him. Losses to Hamilton and St Johnstone at home and Dundee away. And of the wins, very lucky to beat Hibs who were much the better team; and double header win v Aberdeen came when they were unsettled by Rangers approach for McInnes.
They clearly wanted someone else, and he hasn't really done enough to earn the chance. Do you think their choice only available at end of season or they just run out of ideas for now? Or do you think Murty really being given a chance on merit?

Couldn't even begin to fathom out what's going on. He's an U21 coach, and I thought that the last board were a disgrace.

Very enjoyable Old Firm game. 0-0 but a good 0-0. That was more like it from the Gers (albeit Celtic a little off form at the moment). Still don't want Murty as full time manager but that was a good performance. And a much needed positive advertisement for the SPL.
And now, we cross over to the Scottish games PR man, Alby... ;)

Highly enjoyable day of footy. Celtic were lucky to have Gordon today. Definitely kept them in it.
