Ninety minutes into the new Premiership season and it’s like we’ve never been away in Hotline land.

We’re not even finished the first round of matches and already some callers reckon the title is nailed on while there’s even the first managerial sacking prediction!

Rangers’ win at Aberdeen on Saturday sparked most the debate.

Alan McGaw, Alloa, said: “Great result especially up in Aberdeen and for our first game of the new season it’s all about the three points. We were good in the first half and held our own in the second. What a brilliant debut for Leon Balogun who looked very comfortable at the back. An improved Ryan Kent who took his goal very well.”

The gravity of the Alfredo Morelos dilemma facing Rangers is so heavy that Ally McCoist used a line from The Godfather. But whether or not the Light Blues are made an offer they can’t refuse, the Ibrox legend believes they could be damned if they do and damned if they don’t sell their prized asset.

Steven Gerrard has urged Alfredo Morelos to focus only on Rangers after Lille’s latest offer for the striker came “nowhere near” their valuation. “I’ve also been having some detailed chats with Alfredo . He tells me he’s ready, he looks ready and he will certainly travel up to Aberdeen as part of the squad.

Andrew Lamb, Fraserburgh, added: “A well deserved three points for Rangers, against a pretty dismal Dons side, whose style of football is dreadful to watch. The Dons were also guilty of sly kicks and elbows off the ball.”

Mark McBrearty, Dumbarton, said: “After watching the game at Pittodrie I feel that Derek McInnes’ time at Aberdeen is coming to an end. His team were lacklustre at best, very poor all round. Mr Gerrard’s team weren’t much better but three points is three points. Alfredo Morelos looks disinterested.”

But Jimmy Mac, Glasgow, reckons Rangers must gamble by doing everything they can to keep the Colombian. He said: “If Rangers hang on to Morelos and win the league this season then his value will shoot up by another £10million.

  Kenny Miller makes 'ready-made' Alfredo Morelos Rangers replacement claim as Ibrox hero warns of sale risk The former Rangers frontman knows how difficult it can be for players coming into the club and believes they'll need to hit the ground running.But the former Ibrox star insists his old club must have a ready-made replacement ready to go otherwise they wouldn't even consider selling him so close to the game.

Alfredo Morelos set up Rangers ' goal against Aberdeen but his performance was quieter than the Alfredo Morelos has been the subject of interest from French club Lille. After a week of high The bad news for the denizens of Ibrox is that Lille are not likely to leave it there on the recruitment front.

Rangers should only retain Alfredo Morelos for the new Scottish Premiership season if he is totally committed to the club, according to Darren Fletcher. Sky Sports pundit Fletcher said: "I think when a player has potentially agreed terms with another club, you don't want to dim the value of your player.

"The board has to do everything within their power to keep Morelos for that challenge as bringing in another striker as first choice is a gamble not worth considering.”

Lance Little, Erskine, wasn’t impressed with Gerrard’s claim his side had laid down a marker at Pittodrie. He said: “A 1-0 victory against an Aberdeen team who had lost both of their strikers, who had their worst game in years with zero shots on target.

"My five-a-side team could have got a result against them. With a marker like that I am sure all the other teams are shaking in their boots. Not.”

Celtic fans are split over Neil Lennon’s squad and whether it’s got the depth and quality to go the distance and reach the magic 10.

Gerry Milligan, Erskine, said: “Celtic look strong and I don’t think there is much more needed as we haven't seen Soro and haven't used Shved or Bayo. Rangers can’t possibly think they can stop 10 in a row - their squad is weak and sending Jake Hastie out again is a puzzle.”

The Colombian striker is the subject of intense transfer speculation regarding a possible move to Lille. As it stands the Ibrox club aren't satisfied by

The Ibrox legend reckons his old club will find it difficult to turn down a sizeable bid for the Colombian. Ally McCoist insists Rangers would find it very difficult to reject a huge offer for Alfredo Morelos on the eve of the new season - because he's still not convinced his former club can trust

But David Bryce, Troon, said: “Celtic are starting the season with a far weaker squad than they had last season and I’ve got to say I felt last year’s squad badly needed strengthened. It’s a slap in the face to the Celtic fans who have ploughed millions into the club in the past few months.”

Denis Bruce, Bishopbriggs, had words of wisdom for Leigh Griffiths: “This is the season when Griffiths can make himself a legend in Celtic folklore by helping the team to ten in a row.

"This wee man has talent to burn and I am sure he would not want to leave Paradise with his dreams unfulfilled. He needs to live up to his boast that Ibrox was made for him. Get yourself back on track wee man and get on with what you do so well - scoring goals.”

Finally from the praise to the baize as John Higgins goes after a fifth snooker World Championship title.

But the Celtic-daft Wizard of Wishaw’s comments that a fifth title spread over four decades would eclipse the Hoops’ winning 10 in a row haven’t gone down well with Chic Springett .

He said: “John Higgins saying a fifth world snooker title would surpass Celtic winning 10 in a row shows that he is as deluded as much as the Celtic fans. He's passed it and so are Celtic.”
