Disappointed with the result but no complaints at all, just how good is this guy Naismith?

Must admit I'm on a large dose of humble, my dad told me from day one he was a cracker.

Wonder how much he will be worth after a couple of seasons like that, folk must have been paying attention.

Looks the part in that company tonight, and every other company he's coming up against for Rangers and Scotland.

Is there a case for giving him lone striker role and moving Whittaker into midfield?

Miller hasn't scored in last 14 CL games for tims and us....and has struggled to make any impact.

Naisy is a rare gem.....

Still to see the best of him. He is genuinely our most attacking threat and I'm delighted with his form this season!

Really hope he keeps it because if he does he will be a massive player for us.

Whittaker is terrible in midfield and he absolutely can defend despite your continual barrage of propaganda saying otherwise.

A couple of slack moments defensively tonight, but otherwise excellent.

Could easily have scored two and set up one.

superger
02-11-2010, 22:21
He was very unlucky tonight. If his early shot off the post had went in we might have been able to build on that. He certainly didn't lack confidence either at this level which is a huge positive.

In a couple of seasons he´d probably be out of contract and go on a free.

We´ll have to be careful that doesn´t happen.

Thing is we won´t be able to match wage offers he´ll get elsewhere so it wouldn´t surprise me if he moves next summer.

He played well tonight. Was unlucky hitting the post twice. Such a different player from last season.

LJ50
02-11-2010, 22:22
I confess I would prefer he was playing somewhere other than on the left, but yet again tonight he was our danger man.

Ferocious work-rate and tenacity. Great in the air and becoming increasing aware of what's going on around him.

If he keeps fit and keeps progressing as he has done when fit then he's going to be a major star.

The escuse tonight appears to be "well it was Mata and he's pure class" but I guess it had to be something.

The point was Naismith being a diamond....is there a call to play him up front? We have no presence at the moment.....and he has shon all season.

Much like Whittaker in midfield, I think if you put Naismith up there as the focal point he will lose the surprise in his game.

Playing as the focal point, he will have two men on him at all times. Playing deep he can lose his man and support as he has been doing to great effect this season.

Both players are playing in the positions I would have them in (perhaps Naismith at the point of a diamond but that's not going to happen)

02-11-2010, 22:25
Naismith has been brilliant all season and still didn't disappoint tonight despite several other members of the team being a let down.

Naismith looked a constant threat and his running off the ball was superb. He was very unlucky not to get two goals tonight but as I said, the rest of the team were either not capable or just didn't turn up.

Naismith and McGregor were excellent tonight. Whittaker had a decent game going forward and didn't let too much by. The things he did didn't amount to much.

Didn't feel a little sorry for Naismith tonight. He done his all, tracking back, attacking well and just didn't have a team trying hard enough around him. His managed also didn't help but not spotting the obvious problems sooner and trying to do something about. Unlucky wee man but keep these performances up.

Best player in the SPL at the moment.

Touch, movement, pace, tenacity and an eye for goal.

MDC
02-11-2010, 22:27
One of the problems in moving him is that you take him away from a role where he has performed best in a Rangers jersey.

That and, for all the good play and before we get carried away here, he too has missed good chances in this season's competition.

He's already a major star.

That boy is first on the teamsheet with McGregor, Boogy, and Davies, these days.

He doesn't even resemble the guy who has had such a hard time trying to find good form in the past.

Brilliant again and a special mention to Greggs I think these two players will be high on the radar of teams after these displays, we were given a bit of a lesson tonight but I feel we may have a few surprises for Utd in the next game, it ain't over till the fat lady sings so they say!

Also has a great leap and can win headers against anyone

Naisy has really proven how vital an injury free pre season is to a player.

Luck isn't something that good teams suffer from, or good players.

But the most important consideration is the former in my OP. He is so good at the moment in the role he occupies and, at least in the SPL, his presence there has helped those in other positions, including the one he would replace.

I echo the sentiments elsewhere about the good run through pre-season and beyond free from injury: just shows how this can help a player.

02-11-2010, 22:34
For those taling about moving Naismith up front - you're using 45 minutes of evidence against a run all season where he's been brilliant in the wider midfield role.

He's stated himself that the continuity of selection has been a big factor in his form - I'd rather he stayed where he is.

brotybear
02-11-2010, 22:34
As well as Naisy being an excellent player for us this season, I have been very impressed by his handling of the media in post match comments. He is very articulate and balanced in his comments and won't be drawn into making silly comments when leading question are put to him.

A Real Ranger!

If its not broke dont fix it. I dont understand it either, why when a Gers player hits a good bit of form do people start saying he should play in another position?

burnleybank8463
02-11-2010, 22:39
Naismith, in my opinion, was always a technically proficient player. (I recall him showing great ability at Kilmarnock for instance.)

Now, added to that, he has achieved a good level of strength and conditioning also, which has helped him recover from some nasty injuries in my view. It is important for him to maintain that.

His mental approach to games is also very good. (He also demonstrated -- and perhaps even fostered -- strength of character to come through a problematic phase of injury.)

Overall, a very good player.

ranger1873
02-11-2010, 22:39
I said in another thread that Naismith has it in him to be the best Scottish player since Dalglish. His performances will certainly have got him noticed at a higher level and I am struggling to think of a Scottish born player who has made a greater impact in the CL than he has.

I wasn't calling it absurd outright (I posted on here a couple of seasons ago about Naismith playing that role to a bit of ridicule), but the fact is he's playing far better than just about anyone could have predicted in a role that suits his movement, touch and vision.

I'd leave well alone. We'd be harming one area of the pitch in an attempt to fix another.

Outstanding all season, but should have scored at least twice over the two games against Valencia. That header tonight, should have scored. Unlucky with the one that hit the post in the first half.

Been my MOTM in almost 90% of games this season. Keep it up Naisy :)

He's one of us as well, can only hope we have the money to extend his contract sometime soon.

Judee Levinson
02-11-2010, 23:07

Superb start to the season and lets hope he stays injury free and maintains this form throughout the season.:):):)

BF.


different class at the time, far better than yaysmith, who is turning out to be a star in our team. his injuries must have stopped his development and we're seeing the benefits now. he plays with his head up now and doesn't tend to turn into players the way he used to.

the other fact often forgotten was that yaysmith told the ratchatchers to bolt when that fud of a chairman was trying to punt him when we were interested. he basically took himself off the transfer list when they accepted a deal from them. he came out and said he wanted to stay after initially saying he wanted to leave killie to sign for us.

Calvers72
03-11-2010, 00:59
So unlucky tonight with his goal attempts but on the positive side i am sure that wee Naisy will be in the running for POY if he keeps up this form. He's like a kid playing fitba in the park just now and just enjoying being out there. Good on him the rest will follow!

Top drawer.

He looked very good. He could have slotted quite well into that Valencia team and started playing for them the morra. There will be inquiries about him. In his post-match statement he came off as a genuine guy, modest,and ready to take on Man U....he is our best Scottish player in a long time.

03-11-2010, 04:26
Alan Hutton.

I think Naisy is better.

His game suits the style of the major European leagues and as one poster has already said, his performance v Sevilla at Ibrox was superb.

This is a player we have on our hands here.

iaatpies
03-11-2010, 06:11
I wouldnt play Naismith as an out and out striker. He seems to be at his best when he can work around the edge of the box or he can make a late run and lose his marker. He wouldnt be able to make those late runs into the box if he was playing further forward. For me he needs to be playing behind a striker.

He's the form player in our side right now. Davis may be equally gifted and Bougherra is still an attractive option but Naismith, in my opinion, is probably our biggest asset right now.

I'm game. Miller is sadly out of his depth at CL level. Naisy looks like he was born for this stage.

Problem is who would play wide left if not our best striker? :angel:

Doesn't that sentence just sum up the Rangers of today?

hurleyreyes
03-11-2010, 06:59
Reports were that it was a five year contract when he signed in 2007, unless he signed an extension?

His whole game this season has been based on late ghosting runs into the box, and working ridiculously hard for the team, we would lose a big big percentage of that if he was played as a focal point.

Its not absurd, because he could play there, but why change it when he is doing so well?

BoclairBear
03-11-2010, 09:01
The famous FF author who christened him the "Ayrshire Messi " was spot on. Great wee player with a fantastic work ethic,very unlucky last night with his efforts. There is such a fine line at the highest level. His turn on a sixpence leading to his shot off the post was worthy of a goal.
Also very articulate in his post match interview.

bluebaz
03-11-2010, 09:34
I'm another one who owes Naisy a big apology.

Since coming back from his initial lengthy injury absence I repeatedly slated him on here for not being Rangers-class. I didn't dislike the boy, I just didn't think he would ever be good enough for us.

I have never been so happy to be proved wrong in all my life.

Well done Naisy, you were outstanding again last night. Sorry for doubting you in the past.

03-11-2010, 13:41
I'm delighted Naismith is now playing to his potential.

Something appears to have clicked with him now - I'm sure it's a matter of confidence more than anything else. In seasons past it's almost as if the pressure of playing for Rangers was too much for him, it looked like he felt out of place and he'd generally defer to the more senior players. In short he played like a starstruck kid playing for his boyhood favourites.

Now, he looks like he knows he's good enough, knows that he is worthy of his place in the Rangers team, making things happen, working hard, never hiding. Add that on to his undoubted talent and we have a cracking player on our hands. Great stuff, hope he keeps it up.

I am happy for him. He has performed in patches the last few seasons. Had his moments, but was always held back by injury, or the way he was used.

He has had a settled season and now looks like being one of Smits better signings. He could play for us for years now.

He will be buzzing inside knowing he has been a key player for us this season.

People like Fleck should be looking at him and realising that there is always a way back if you work hard.

I am happy for him. He has performed in patches the last few seasons. Had his moments, but was always held back by injury, or the way he was used.

He has had a settled season and now looks like being one of Smits better signings. He could play for us for years now.

He will be buzzing inside knowing he has been a key player for us this season.

People like Fleck should be looking at him and realising that there is always a way back if you work hard.


Good post mate, you know what?

I think the same could happen to Lafferty.

I hope so man. I have always had time for Kyle, most Bears that watch him have a desperation for him to succeed, as they did with Naisy. They play like we would play if we had their ability.

Just like what was said on this weeks Heart and Hand. Need to find a way to convince Kyle that the full season in the run in and he would be fine, big sod seems daft enough that he would believe it. :D

He has the passion and the heart for it. But he probably showed today why he shouldn’t get it.

I love that he will argue every decision, but it gets him noticed.

If he was wearing the arm band he would be walking out with a target on him. Best to try and keep him out of the spotlight.

Wouldn’t want him to lose the nasty streak, think you would lose a bit of the player.

Just meeting my wife after the game. How do I tell her I now love Naismith more?

Davie Weir's only 67 year old ffs. It'll be another 4 years until he let's go off that armband. :)

delighted for him i didnt like it when some where on his back as i didnt feel it was justified with the injurys and time out he had that hampered his games and runs.
i always had faith in him he wasnt the national teams under 21 captain for nothing also winning under 21 poty 2 years running and he is now showing what i always thought he had

He's not only gotten over being star-struck, he's giving the other players a boot up the arse. My vote for captain if sir davie ever retires

Great great wee player, who is only going to get better.
Looks like big Kyle might be growing into the jersey as well.
Wee Steven Davis for Captain though :)

Excellent again today. I thought he was man of the match today.

Keep it up Naisy.

I must admit I think Naisy is still running around the Ibrox pitch even now as he never knows when the game is finished!!

As someone posted from KDS last week

He plays like we are getting beat 1 nil!

Great attitude!!

The attitude from the lad is something he can install on others in the squad and thats why hes so mouthy at the other players and refs, but its the technical side of his play that has advanced so much in the last two seasons that the players show him so much respect and at times I see them cringe when he is about to have a go at them.
