Hate to say this but I think its time for a change at management level, I know a lot of fans will disagree and up until a couple of weeks ago I would have disagreed but I genuinely think Warburton has taken us as far as his limited coaching experience can go.

Yes some of the players havnt performed and yes he hasn't had the funds to compete with Celtic but in those circumstances we should be looking for our manager to get the best out of the players he has at his disposal and I don't think he is.

He did what was required and got us out of championship and got the fans buzzing again after 4 nightmare years but he's not a top level manager, even in Scotland, and I hate to say it but Davie Weirs track record as a coach leaves a lot to be desired as well.

Who replaces him? No idea. The two obvious choices, Mcinnes and Davies, I wouldn't touch with a bargepole for various reasons. Would Alex Neal leave Norwich for the club he has supported all his life? Maybe.

Got to disagree, the club is being repaired, we are slowly returning to where we need to be. We are miles behind Celtic and anyone who thinks we are not is delusional. We would need to invest big money to catch them quickly. We don't have that so let's be patient a.

Have to agree mate i'm no longer wantin warburton there now he's just not upto it imo, would love alex neil or even experiance alan pardew or something how michael o halloran can't get game is beyond belief and rob keirnan n barrie mckay allways get game its just boring now same crap week in week out. Matt gilks out standin in goal but he will still get dropped we don't play our best players warburton plays his favourites FACT.

From 5-1 to 1-0 am not sure but i think that's a vast improvement.

@Dorchesterblue - I believe Alex Neil is a Celtic fan?
@barrymiddleon - It would be a big drop in wages for Pardew to head north.
Time for some of us to get realistic about where we as a club currently stand.

Biggee, an improvement in scoreline yes, but in performance? your joking if anything we were worse than at parked only poor finishing and a great performance from Gilks stopped it being an even bigger defeat than last time.

Dorchester Blue, norwich city manager alex neil is a celtic fan i'm led to believe! For the record i'm total in agreement with Dunbar Blue, i still back the rangers management team of wsrburton and weir. If any deluded rangers fan out there didn't think that this would take time as its clearly a wip project then they are VERY narrow minded imo. As for the record on who should replace warburton if something was unfortunate to happen to him as our manager then the only outstanding manager/ coach who i'd want as the rangers manager would be billy davies hands down, this tremendous coach gets bad publicity in things that ain't true, the facts are the wee man is NOT a yes man and that's why some owners and chairman of certain football clubs bad mouth him. His cv in the english championship is outstanding and has broken many manager records down there with his undoubted ability!

{Ed001's Note - Davies has a bad rep for things that are true, that is why no one involved in footie is employing him. You would have to be desperate to employ him.}

I keep hearing this ed and with all due respect from my contacts, one in particular that knows him very well the rumours/ stories are unfounded. Only stating what i regard as a very reliable source has told me. Isn't it funny how 2 sportswriters from the dr have stated as much that he's being bad mouthed unfairly and without substance! If there was anything the media would have been well on to this long ago!

{Ed001's Note - would they? The same way they were onto Giggs shagging his sister in law for so many years? Your 'contact' knows nothing if he truly thinks there is nothing in this.}

I'd rather have Billy Connolly than Billy Davies. Billy Davies was touted before and was sat behind me in the Thornton before we appointed W&W, but i really don't want him anywhere near us.

If we're going for anyone its McInnes, but that's just my opinion.

why not terry butcher lads?, done a great job with limited budget before.

{Ed039's Note - He has also been an absolute flop in some jobs as well. I do not agree with the assessment that Warburton must go)

He was sat behind you and what? What's your point super ally? Are any of you guys truly telling me that billy davies isn't a not good, terrific coach/ manager? For the record davies is streets ahead of the sheep's manager delboy mciness!, and i mean streets ahead, no contest on coaching ability! I think most knowledgeable proper football minded people would at the very least admit that!

{Ed039's Note - Billy Davies has a very problematic personality as well though, nobody likes a yes man but Billy Davies has a track record of falling out with chairmen at clubs he has been at)

My point is that he was fancied before and got rejected.

For me there's never been a time where i'd thought yeah i'd have him as our manager. He's been out of work for ages now and why? Well i think that answers itself.

McInnes would be a far better option, knows the league, knows the opposition, even knows the club inside out and the guys done a decent enough job at Aberdeen with little to no budget at all. i'm not saying he should be the front runner but he's probably as good as we can get or afford at the moment.

Super ally, we didn't reject davies it was him who turned down the chance to work for us as he had no trust in the way the club he loved was being run. So there you have it my friend and that was before warburton was appointed!

24 Oct 2016 17:02:34
Yeah fire the manage who's just installed his system across the whole club and give him a massive payout - that'll get us back on track, huh? Seriously, some of you guys don't have a f****** clue and are frankly an embarrassment. Celtic have a 5 year head start - be realistic please. You shouldn't be allowed on the internet without supervision. Call yourselves Rangers fans? SHAMEFUL.

More contacts than specsavers you eh?

So is that why he was in the stands when McCall was the manager. The great Billy Davies knocked us back. Maybe you should start a new user names BillyDavies16 or even Heinz57 with the amount of nonsense you post here.

The club he loves haha, he's as shady as the Easdales. Davie Weir has more of a standing than Davies but he trusted the board to come on board didn't he?

I wouldn't get rid of W&W at all, everyone has to be patient but there's just a cull of fans who demand instant success.

Supercooper, you should ask Tommy Sheridan about the rumours surrounding Billy Davies. They are all true and then some. As for Alex Neal being a Celtic fan, i'm pretty sure he's a Bear but if i'm wrong I stand corrected. Would still take him in a heartbeat though no matter who he supports.

24 Oct 2016 22:04:39
billy davis should never be rangers manager he comes with a mile of baggage in his private life and is far to abrasive in dealing with football matters he does not meaure up to the mark to be a manager at ibrox.

It wouldn't matter who we had as manager if the investment is not there to bring in quality. It is patently obvious that we took a risk on a number of players in the hope that we would get a bargain because King had failed to deliver the promised funding. Barton and Kranjcer were always going to be a risk and given Rossiter's injury problems he was always a risk signing despite the obvious potential. Add to that the fact that we are leaderless on the park and Warburton seems oblivious to the fact that McKay is not good enough for this league and I fear we will do well to finish in the top three.

Dorchester Blue, i don't need to ask tommy sheridan anything mate regarding billy davies. I've heard and know all the rumours. I agree it wouldn't matter who alex neil supported if he ever had the privilege of becoming our manager but trust me he's a celtic fan!

Souness hit the nail on the head! The fault lies with King. Anyone with eyes can see that McKay is not premier league class, they can see that Wallace is not Captain material and that the summer signings were generally risk signings, in the hope that they would work out, (and hopefully they will) .

We need a quality centre back, a quality left sided attacking midfield player and a proper striker to replace the raging Miller. That presupposes that Rossiter and Crooks will get match fit and avoid injuries so that there is support for Holt and Halliday.

Some of that promised #30m is needed and fast!

actually embarrassed to read all these comments about replacing warbs he tried something different and it didn't work and cup games are what they are and although it was terrible football form both sides I think to say replace the manager is harsh and not unlike what the selik fans would be saying and I will never stoop to the depths they do changing managers now would be pointless and we must give warbs the rest of the season at least.

James Stirling, as I said above, it wouldn't matter who we had a manager, even Alex Ferguson would struggle with the current squad. Too many of the players brought in were a risk as a result of a lack of investment. To putt it is a nutshell, we need about 20m, whether Warburton and his Scots are the right people to acquire the players needed is a separate issue.

If King can't deliver as was promised by him then he needs to step aside for someone that will put money into the club.

I do wonder whether there was more behind the Souness comment, especially if Kennedy has been buying up shares in the Club as has been rumoured.

lets all just take a step back and chill out the mans been in the job a year and a half and has so far in my eyes done a good job. let's be honest here bears. a top 4 finish this season would be terrific. we don't have the budget we once had and our youth set up is terrible warbs is re-building our club from the laces up which will take time. in a year and a half we have won a championship, got to 2 cup finals and a semi final. which is much much more than we had achieved in the previous 3 years. the teams we played against last season were below par and made us look good. we are in a league where teams are and have been getting stronger and are now sadly slightly ahead of us which we have to accept in terms of squads and playing. MW and DW will get us there and we will once again be the best footballing team in Scotland and have fantastic European nights at Ibrox like Barca, Inter Millan etc.

who would invest in us TOMUSA?
king has turned this club around and think he has our best intrests at hear otherwise we wouldn't be where we are at.

20million ;a) wouldn't guarantee a good team
b) would probs put us back into liquidation
c) no one has that money to invest in a team when there is no chance of a return.

simply put we cannot afford to live with celtic at the moment. until the fat rat is gone and the retail side of things change then we have no money we are running at a major loss because of this retail deal and king and co have done nothing but try to get out of it which the club desperately needs to do to survive.

James Stirling, if King didn't have the money or had no intention of putting it into the club then he should have kept his mouth shut rather than make promises that people can identify with. While I agree that getting rid of Ashley is important so too is having people at the Club that are willing to put money in to bring back the good days or at least give the manager a fighting chance.

A bit like Marlborough in the past, King has done his bit, now it is time for him to put his money where his mouth is or look for someone that can do this. Souness' statement was 100% accurate and as I have said, I do wonder whether he has potential investment lined up.

No one associated with the club likes playing second fiddle to Celtic and when a share issue comes about I am sure that there will be significant interest from the support based on what we can afford. That will vary by individual and most of us won't be expecting a dividend other than a better team on the park and a captain that is a leader. If Ashley is the prime reason for lack of investment then an alternative way to remove him from our club needs to be found and quick although I doubt that this is the case since investment can always be by way of secured loan stock that is convertible to ordinary shares at some future time. It does not even need to carry a ticket value!
