September update

Scottish Championship

League Table

Scottish Challenge Cup

Scottish League Cup

Manager's Point Of View

Four wins and a draw. We had to scrape some wins but that is only because Vuckic is injured for 2 months.St Mirren were dispatched away from home and they never really troubled us. Alloa were frustrating. We had 32 sots and we just could not score. Falkirk were great but after my half time team talk, we managed to turn the game around and win. We progressed easily in the Challenge cup where we will face St Mirren in the Semi Final. In the league cup we will face rivals Aberdeen away from Home .

Player Of The Month

A brilliant player who came through the ranks at Rangers who is still improving. He could be a fantastic player in the years to come. A boyhood Rangers fan who moved to canada. He has helped Rangers through the league and will lead us into the Premiership.
Good month buddy :)

Author's Note

I have played a season and a bit with Ranger's so I decided to do the first season in 2 updates (one from October- January and the other till the end of the season). From next season there will be updates as usual.
Ah no, you beat Falkirk :/
Jack- thanks
Tallery- Yes I did. :)

Manager's Point Of View

We have had a fantastic couple of months leading up to the transfer window. We have dropped only 4 points with the now departed Fraser Aird being our best player. He came and said he wanted to join PSV so I let him provided they paid £1 million for him. We signed Improta on loan with the option of a permanent deal for £1.5 million. Nano was back-up and will mostly be sold at the end of the year.
Damn, looks like you're coming up to lose to Celtic :P
Tallery- We are going up. To lose to Celtic, not too sure. :P

January- May

Manager's Point Of View

What a season with the Scottish Cup Final still to play, a chance to play in Europe next season. Our player's have been fantastic this season, scoring the most goals and conceding the least. We already have the makings of a Premiership team and we are better then most of the teams in the higher division. Improta was absolutely brilliant down the right. Fosatti and Junior ran the midfield. Alfonso chipped with goals and assists. Rolando Aarons assisted 16 goals and scored 5. Calum Gallagher scored 22 goals to finish second in the race fr the golden boot. We won the title in February with 31 points the difference.
He won a championship without appeal for the remaining teams have totally dominated the championship, congratulations
Egh. But Celtic are no push overs ;)
Tallery- I wouldn't count on it. :P

Rangers Win Scottish Cup

Rangers took full advantage of the numerical advantage as they defeated Motherwell 4-1 to win their 34th cup at Hampden Park. Motherwell finished the game with nine men through ill-discipline and injury.

In the fifth minute McManus brought Riccardo Improta down in the box to concede a penalty. Calum Gallagher dispatched the penalty in the top corner to beat Twardzik. 20 minutes later Wallace swung the ball in from a corner, Improta headed on and Gasparotto swept in. five minutes later another corner came in and Wilson headed in.

After the break John Sutton pulled one back after sweeping in a shot from twenty yards. That was as good as it got for Motherwell as ten minutes later Motherwell failed to deal with a long ball from Foderingham and Fosatti skinned a defender before squaring it for Gallagher to tap in for his second goal of the game. McDonald was forced with injury in the 83rd minute and Motherwell Captain Keith Lasley got sent off for his second yellow card for persistent fouling.

Rangers will certainly look back at some great wins along the way such as the 2-0 victory over Premiership side St Johnstone. The Gers also beat Albion Rovers, Livingston and Hamilton along the way. They were helped with some stand-out performers such as Lee Wallace and Calum Gallagher. The players themselves will be pocketing a reported 30k each for winning the competition.

Mark Warburton

‘We played absolutely fantastic and I am so proud of my players. Twelve months ago, this Motherwell side beat us 3-0 and now we are standing here having absolutely thrashed them is a great achievement. The players showed great intensity in their player and they were just brilliant.
Calum Gallagher was fantastic, Marco (Fosatti) was creating chance after chance and Lee (Wallace) bossed that left side and he ended with two assists and the man of the match award.’

Ian Baraclough

‘I thought we played rubbish. Sure, Rangers played well but not well enough to beat us 4-1. That was our own doing. We finished the game with nine men after the injury. Our Captain Keith (Lasley) should not be getting sent off in games like these. This is a cup final and our captain has let us all down today. All I can do is apologise to the fans for this poor showing.

Ranger Sign Scott Allan

Rangers have had a third bid of £300k accepted for Hibs midfielder Scott Allan. Scott Allan lead the Assists chart with 18 assists for Hibs. He led Hibs to the top flight after winning in the Play-off final

Allan last month formally submitted a transfer request at Easter Road in the wake of the club rejecting two transfer bids from their Premiership rivals.The Ibrox club's second offer last month for the playmaker amounted to £225,000 but Hibs said then that "the player will not be sold to Rangers".
That offer was £50,000 more than Rangers' initial bid for the former West Brom and Dundee United player. Allen is a boyhood Rangers fan.

Despite being linked to a move to Rangers last year, Allan signed a two-year contract with Hibernian in July 2014. Allan made his debut for Hibs on 5 August 2014, coming on as a substitute during extra-time in a 2–1 defeat against Rangers in the Scottish Challenge Cup.

Allan soon established himself as a regular in the team, and after scoring his first goal for the club in a 6–3 win over Dumbarton in November, manager Alan Stubbs described him as being "as good as anyone in the league", adding that he considered Allan to be "head and shoulders above a lot of people he's up against.

He turned in an outstanding performance for Hibs in their 4–1 win over Rangers on this where he provided assists for Hibs' third and fourth goals and won the Man of the Match award. Rangers had already won the title at the time.

Allan said' To play for Rangers is a dream come true, I have dreamt about it since I was a kid and this was my goal in life. Our target this year is to challenge Celtic and Aberdeen, our two greatest rivals for a play among Europe's elite.'

Warburton said that Allan is a 'great young lad' with many years ahead of him and he has the potential to be one of the best players in Scotland. He said' I am pleased to sign Scott (Allan) as he is a bright young lad with the potential to become even better. I told the fans at the start that youth is the way forward and this is the way forward,
