According to the Scottish Sun upping our offer for Graham Dorrans to £1.2m.

I can only hope that's the truth from the sun, because I think 1.2 million might do it, in terms of Norwich selling. Although I have heard elsewhere we were going to be going in harder for Dorrans and Rangers we're hoping to have agreed a price byMonday .

Depends though, if we are paying in about 5 instalments
then it may still get knocked back.

I don't know why we just give them there 1.5 million as it's a proper bargain, instead we are haggling over a couple hundred thousand pounds 💷.

Especially when we know we were pretty happy 😊 to spend more than that on some Portuguese and Mexican guys.

The good news or at least I think it's good is that graham himself has made it clear to Norwhich that he wants to head to Ibrox and only Ibrox, to take his family home and play for his boyhood heroes. So by that logic Norwhich are going to have to listen to one of offers at some point you'd think. Or risk loosing him for peanuts in Jan or Nothing in summer. And paying his wages for another year - when there desperately trying to reduce the wage bill, all for a player that doesn't want to be there and is angry for not letting him go home to Ibrox.

Yes Sheffield and Middlesbrough showed interest and were going to meet the asking price, but I don't think it's a coincidence that we're hearing nothing more about that!
I think they have been told that Graham will not go there!

So it's down to Rangers and Norwich to agree something!
Personally I don't think it's going to be to long before that ones done. And a great 👍 signing it will be also.

To be honest I'm glad we haggling over a couple of hundred thousand. 200k saved is the wages of a 10k a week player for nearly half a season that we could get on top for a free

Sebrofg your saying we should give them 1.5 mill instead of haggling over a few hundred thousand. That's fair enough but hats the exact reason we ended up in the shitpit last time because we use threw money about. We still don't know how much is there and tbh i'm not the only one who wasnt sure anything was there. It's great we are spending a mill here and a few mil there but we must be responsible this time round and make the money match the value because these players have to offer a resale value or the Ike of a few hundred thousand becomes a lot more in a loss. Joe garner is the perfect example. But after all that said things are seriously looking on the up and up for us

My opinion is we need to tie down aiden Wilson, barjonas and bates!

Barjonas and Wilson yes. Bates not a player I'm afraid.

Well Pedro has stated that Bates is going to be one of his 4 main centre backs this season so you better get used to him. He has done a good job just because he's not got the passing ability of Pirlo people think he is rotten. Always done well defending which is his job so I don't see what peoples problem with him is.

Totallt agree, bates good boy and more experience could be great defender

Why don't you throw in a couple of hundred thousand pounds since you obviously think it's loose change?

bates isn't the most confident on the ball but at the defensive side of things he gets in goo positions and reads the game well he ios one for the future imo
