Rumor going about that the Connor Goldson deal isn't as close as the press made it out to be, hope this isn't true but What if it is and i heard are 2 Cb will be Katic and Alves with Goldson having second thoughts about leaving Brighton and wants to prove he can cut it in the premiership, like i said hope its just a rumor but what's the hold up why hasn't he signed yet? sometimes there's no smoke without fire.

Alex1972

Alex you are talking nonsense Goldson will be confirmed Wednesday or Thursday officially stay away from Timothy rumours


2.) 13 Jun 2018 05:08:30
Alex don’t believe Timothy he is obsessed with with the most successful team in Scotland yesterday they printed we wouldn’t sign Katic then an hour later he signed and they made a right arse of themselves like lol he will probably sign this afternoon or Thursday as stiv65 has already said.


3.) 13 Jun 2018 05:40:13
Yeah True i agree i think he will sign very soon but Just thought I would put out the ro


4.) 13 Jun 2018 05:43:14
Romor i had been hearing


5.) 13 Jun 2018 06:34:50
Some of his teammates have already said goodbye to him on social media, so sounds like he's told them he is coming to us


6.) 13 Jun 2018 08:19:55
Load of sky reporters outside Auchenhowie just now, either announcing him, or is it gerrards first day?


7.) 13 Jun 2018 09:19:24
Gerrard has arrived and Goldson won't be far behind


8.) 13 Jun 2018 10:09:05
Stevie G wants to personally introduce Goldson for photo shoot, and I would imagine he will be the new team captain.


9.) 13 Jun 2018 10:35:54
Sheer, unadulterated dung.


10.) 13 Jun 2018 10:38:15
I've just saw Goldson in the Waitrose round the corner from Auchenhowie buying a cut loaf and a pack of cold meat.


11.) 13 Jun 2018 11:45:12
Was John Eustace with him?


12.) 13 Jun 2018 17:19:10
no one would by a loaf and cold meat without butter and maybe some coleslaw or Branston pickle.

Why are we paying 3.5million for Connor Golden from Brighton whos hardly played last season when we could of got Johnny Evans for the same price? that's his clause cause WBA got relagated, i see he's agreed to join Leicester city we should of at least had a go at signng him as he's a much more experienced player and better than CG from Brighton, what do fellow bears think? did we let a really good deal slip through?

Alex1972

1.) 08 Jun 2018 02:19:15
Evans earns silly money. He’s way above our pay scale and with EPL teams interested it would ever happen.


2.) 08 Jun 2018 02:27:19
Because goldson will be on about 20/ 25k a week and evans will be on about 80k, well out of our budget


3.) 08 Jun 2018 04:33:48
Honestly Alex, what goes through your head? Do you even take a moment before posting nonsense like that? Have a word!


4.) 08 Jun 2018 06:14:31
Honestly some people shouldn’t be allowed on the internet.


5.) 08 Jun 2018 06:23:21
Think about it Alex! Cmoan man


6.) 08 Jun 2018 06:35:48
My only issue is we need to start off loading because we need the wage bill down so we can get decent players and wages not a problem but think things are starting to look good buzzing for the season to start 55 here we come


7.) 08 Jun 2018 06:58:19
We couldn't afford skrtels wages, and evans is on the same if not more than skrtel but your questionin why we never went for him.? Do people actually believe the stuff they write on here?


8.) 08 Jun 2018 07:51:00
Bargain.


9.) 08 Jun 2018 08:37:40
If this boy is on £25k a week then I think that says bye bye to alves really. Probably sell him for a nominal fee just to free up his wages. Works for me.


10.) 08 Jun 2018 09:16:16
Johnny Evans probably has a clause which he gets a massive signing on fee of millions, that is why he has a low transfer fee of £3-3.5 million, plus his wages will be somewhere between 80-100k per week,


11.) 08 Jun 2018 10:28:08
Any one who thinks Jonny Evans would come here on wages we could offer is deluded we're no where near competing on wages


12.) 08 Jun 2018 10:47:39
Evans agent got him between 6-9 million signing on fee because the release clause was so low. so never even on our radar


13.) 08 Jun 2018 12:50:43
Think you should apologise for this one Alex1972😂


14.) 08 Jun 2018 15:32:03
Alex1972 is right, we should have put a bid in and asked him if he wants to take an 80% drop in wages. I'm sure he's sitting gutted questioning his agent as to why he never got the opportunity to take such a decline in wages .


15.) 08 Jun 2018 16:23:42
MikeGer apologies for what for stating the obvious thatConnor Goldson is nowhere near worth 3.5million that was my main point and i mentioned Evans as to back my point that there are better players out there for the same or even less money like we could buy both Sutter and McKenna and still have a about a million and a half left off of the 3.5 we are willing to pay for CG i agree about Evans wages but Don't forget all the silly names we have been linked to and have been mentioned on here like Lucas Defoe etc etc its the same for them it was never going to happen because of there wages but Until recently with the Skertel no deal cause of wages nobody on here was saying we can't afford him or him cause of the wages, i only asked peoples opinion and was saying that CG from Brighton was nowhere near worth 3.5million so there will be no apologies for my opinion as like others i'm intieteld to.


16.) 08 Jun 2018 18:10:11
Hasn't McKenna now got a 2.5mil buy out clause? And souttar after last season is at least 1-2 million? I agree after the season they both had they should be our defence but they'll cost more than the 2.75 goldson is costing


17.) 08 Jun 2018 18:40:19
3.5 million is not enough for Jonny Evans so it's a ridiculous comparison. Looking at 6-8 million signing on fee plus agent fees.


18.) 08 Jun 2018 18:42:44
And then 80k per week is 4.1 million a year on top of that. So 3.5 million we can get evans for maybe 4 months?


19.) 08 Jun 2018 19:49:30
That was a poor attempt at saving face Alex. Your original post suggested we should have signed Evans instead, which is silly.


20.) 08 Jun 2018 23:58:45
MikeGer didn’t you see there was a £3m clause due to relegation, but if you tried to buy him from
Leicester then it would be silly money


21.) 09 Jun 2018 04:56:53
Alex: Goldson is nowhere near a £3 million pound player? Okay mate, well after speaking to Brighton fans on social media they are gutted to be losing him so cheaply, they really seem to like the guy and rate him just because you've never saw him play doesn't lower his valuation. Guessing you used to watch Bougherra every week before he signed? Give the lad a chance I'm happy SG has identified the need to spend to strengthen the defence with a British based player who could have real sell on value.


 

 

30 Jan 2018 23:30:25
Belive it or not i am shocked myself, we are currently in talks with Anothy Stokes respresentives after he was released by Hibs, No deal done but Was told Murty is thinking about offering him a contract till the end of the season to see if he would knuckle down and take this big chance, so If deal goes through which dosent have to be before the transfer window shuts cause he's a free agent it just makes me wonder if morales is off or will be? In China there Window dosent shut till February giving everybody plenty of time to decide this way, go be good business both ways if both goes through.

Alex1972

1.) 30 Jan 2018 23:52:46
You'll be telling us next that we're after James McLean!


2.) 31 Jan 2018 00:18:29
Alex1972 . stokes seriously stay off the drugs kid


3.) 31 Jan 2018 00:05:04
Imagine wasting a minute of your life talking about Stokes at Rangers, if your being half serious seek medical attention


4.) 31 Jan 2018 01:37:31
stokes haha wouldn't let him in the carpark


5.) 31 Jan 2018 07:09:19
Gerry Adams also in for new tea lady position


6.) 31 Jan 2018 08:44:04
Yeah definitely happening, so he gets chance to work under our new permanent manager NEIL Lennon again in the summer 😂 ya riddy 😳


7.) 31 Jan 2018 08:41:29
Stokes - That’s the best one I've ever heard on here.
I suppose it would be funny to see his old mans reaction


8.) 31 Jan 2018 13:52:16
Even on crack I'd struggle to come up with stokes on RANGERS radar""" imagine the backlash from our support""" mind you a remember being a young 18yr old hearing mojo was signing which was totally unbelievable


 

 

25 Jan 2018 22:35:13
Docherty has now officially signed on a 4 and a half year contract, for undisclosed fee, but I can tell you its £680,000 with a really high sell on fee of 25% Which i personally would never had agreed on if i was Rangers, surely we could of or must of tried to get that sell on fee down to 10% or 20% Max

Alex1972

1.) 26 Jan 2018 08:41:15
The sell on fee is irrelevant. We've got a promising youngster signed on a 4 year deal for a snip at just under 700k. If clubs want him in the future if he performs well then we'll make money and Hamilton will get a cut, we certainly won't lose on that nominal outlay.


2.) 26 Jan 2018 12:37:00
What I don't get is the rumoured fee. We offered £300K, they wanted £600K, and we paid £650 - £700k.

We were giving stick for going in too low, and end up paying (if true) more than they originally wanted - with a sell-on fee as well. It doesn't look good.


 

 

06 Jan 2018 20:29:49
The Hold up is Brighton want £1.4 million for him, whereas We only want to pay £1 million for Murphy up front and pay the other £400,000. after so Many appearances personally i just don't think this stupid board have all the money till they sell) i still think the deal will be done but If not and its a case of yet another one gets, away AGAIN, i won't be renewing my season ticket and no more cup games home or away this season or next until this penny pinching, losing out on good Rangers men players stops, just look, at Moult £400,000 and now Walker £300,000, Just to name a couple, at lost out on them why? Over what should be peanuts to a massive club like ours, no wonder the manky mob and others are laughing at us!

Alex1972

1.) 06 Jan 2018 20:34:24
Moult went down south for family reasons never heard we even spoke to him and we tried to buy Walker for 600,000 Hearts wanted 1 million from us . going down south for 300,000 . that's what we are dealing with, nothing to do with the board . Sorry to hear you don't intend going to anymore games based on that bit I'm sure there will be others who will take your tickets .


2.) 06 Jan 2018 21:03:51
Well if you ticked the cup games box at the start of the season then at least the club will still get the money off u mate, doesn’t matter if you don’t go or not.


3.) 06 Jan 2018 21:29:00
I heard the Brighton manager on Clyde last night, and he was happy enough to let Jamie move up here, he wasn't featuring in any of his squads and they were doing all they could to help the lad move to his heroes. Don't think we have the money for the down payment.


4.) 06 Jan 2018 21:51:17
Umad? U seem mad. We don't have the money so we can't spend it. I'm disappointed that we can't secure him permanently just now but hey-ho we can't spend what we don't have. Get over it.


5.) 06 Jan 2018 22:06:33
Alex1972, do you realise how lucky you are to be a season ticket holder at Ibrox? Whatever happened to Follow Follow? I for one would love to be able to afford one and there are undoubtedly thousands upon thousands of Bears like me out there. If you must spit the dummy and cut of your nose to spite your face, I'll take your season ticket off your hands


6.) 06 Jan 2018 23:04:08
Murphy signed three half year deal says Jim white sky.


7.) 07 Jan 2018 01:32:09
Well done the club for getting their man but I understand fully and agree with the guys who are questioning why we haven't got walker at £300 000 or Indeed the young guy from St mirren at similar money. They would have improved our squad and have potential to sell on at a profit when we produced some others from our academy. It shows that we don't have the money. Which is fair enough but just disappointing. I personally, like a lot of others have tried to help by my season ticket, bought shares and bought everything with Rangers fighting fund etc. Because I could and wanted to help. But you get disappointed.


8.) 07 Jan 2018 07:50:37
Dunbar Blue, its quite simple mate, why we didn't move for jamie walker and lewis morgan, this january transfer window! We've moved on to other targets that graeme murty and our DOF, prefer instead of them! To start with jamie murphy is streets ahead of both jamie walker and lewis morgan IMO! I never really wanted us to sign jamie walker anyway! I was NEVER totally convinced with signing him and wasn't impressed anytime i watched him playing! With murphy now signed on loan along with young sean goss, i think our next transfer targets will be greg docherty and jordan jones! I like both these players and think they're much better than jamie walker and lewis morgan! I also do hope we purchase another striker! Thoughts guys?


9.) 07 Jan 2018 08:46:47
I can not see us getting docherty or jordan jones as we cleary do not have the funds to strengthen this jan and i doubt kilmarnock and hamilton will loan them us that's why we are trying swap hodson for jones


10.) 07 Jan 2018 09:54:08
The reason players won’t sign is because other clubs won’t deal with rangers unless they really have to. Clubs are not sure if they will get any transfer money so they want it up front.


11.) 07 Jan 2018 17:40:57
Calm down alex1972, it's Jamie Murphy, have a look at his stats mate, no exactly a season changing signing, if he comes very good, if he doesn't who cares, play the young guys who will gel into a great team, ps, any supporter who threatens, I'm giving up my season ticket and no coming back, good riddance, we have been threw far darker days than missing out on Jamie Murphy, get a grip!


12.) 08 Jan 2018 00:21:12
Walker is not in his class mate


13.) 08 Jan 2018 00:33:38
Dissagree supercooper its not bcos DOF prefers better targets its bcos we literally don't have the dolled to pay for them. Just be loans this window

Hi fellow bears, I hope you took my advice and put your money on 2-1 as your full time score as i posted on Here yesterday, i'm on a role got the sheep result against us aswell as i posted on Here before game along with the Manks 0-0 result to, so Get your Cash on 4-0 against Fraserburgh if we can keep a clean sheet which i'm just not sure about? but Murty please start Cummings alongside Morales.

Jamie Walker signs for Wigan for £300,000 on an intital 2 and half year deal, source SSN Transfer Centre, he will be back at hearts soon or on loan to midtable Scottish side like many before him i don't think it will work out, but Wish the lad all the best especially after our board and Hearts both equally imo messed Walker about and messed with his head.

Alex1972

1.) 08 Jan 2018 15:50:46
Wish him well but don't agree that our board messed with his head at all. Hearts asked for 1m for a player with a year left on his contract, never had an international call up, was not playing well and carrying a reoccurring injury.

I am personally glad the board stood their ground, too many times we have let Scottish clubs bump the asking price up for a player solely because it's Rangers that want to sign them, they do the same with Celtic as well. We can't afford to give in like we used to, plus - I don't feel he was worth the 1m pricetag. Murphy is a far better signing.


2.) 08 Jan 2018 15:57:26
If he thinks Wigan-in what is the English third division-is a better option than Rangers good luck to him.


3.) 08 Jan 2018 15:57:41
I don't think we can say our board messed with his head.

We offered twice as much as they ended up getting for him. Hearts tried to hold us to ransom. We, correctly, declined. End of story.

Hearts lost 300,000 for the sake of 5 months of relatively poor form for him.

In the meantime we bring in alternative and better option in Murphy!

Why do people think our board are at fault here?


4.) 08 Jan 2018 15:59:25
Dont see how Rangers Board are to blame. We offered decent money and Hearts wouldn't sell and have ended up with considerably less.


5.) 09 Jan 2018 10:56:07
It was indeed decent money. This is supported by the fact that Hearts have willingly lost the player 6 months early gaining 300k. I don't see how losing him 12 months early doesn't equate to 600k?


6.) 09 Jan 2018 13:06:35
Scottish clubs do the same to Selik? They got Armstrong, GMS and Allan for a combined £40 quid and a loan of Mcgeoch


 

 

30 Jun 2017 15:34:02
Maybe we could try spending what he is worth 1.5million, and he is worth that A Scotland international with 2 years left on his contract, how many times are we going to penny pinch whenit comes to Scottish/ British Players and then normally loes out on the player altogether, just aswell he's a Rangers man or he would of got sick of waiting then went elsewhere the same goes for Walker the exact same thing penny pinching when we have paid full money for the other non British Players that we have signed, I mean 4 different offers for Dorrans the first offer under £500,000 O mean its getting an embarrestment now cause this has been going on now not just this season but A few seasons and many Transfer Windows Just look at the Scott Allan Saga and many more that's been the exact same. £1.5million For Dorrans and £800,000 to 1million For Walker is Fair and is what should be paid if we really want to sign these players IMO.

Alex1972

1.) 30 Jun 2017 17:28:26
We should never spend what other clubs want on players if we had bid 1.5 for Dorrans and 1 for walker they would have wanted more


2.) 30 Jun 2017 17:52:00
What a load of pish! Pedro clearly values Dorrans at less than what Norwich want. He will either walk away or negotiate.

It's all part of life.


 

 

28 Jun 2017 17:56:41
Contrary to what the Papers (media) have said Norwich and Rangers have not come to an agreement regarding Dorrans signing for Rangers, the rest of the papers jumped on the story after the express anounced it but They got it wrong so It hasn't happened yet cfellow Bears but Hopefully Rangers are working on changing this as we speak.

Alex1972

1.) 28 Jun 2017 19:49:24
I reckon theve got him and hopefully announce tomorrow, just hope we turn up tomorrow night and batter this mob be nice 5 or 6 but would take 1 lol


2.) 28 Jun 2017 20:16:04
Where did the Dorrans info come from? If this does go Pete Tong what other options do you think we should go for?


3.) 28 Jun 2017 20:25:45
Fake News, Bad!


 

 

18 Jun 2017 20:53:11
Caixinha has revealed in an interview with Portuguese newspaper, O Jogo, that Gauld was offered to Rangers. He was suggested to us on a loan, but I don't thignk we should have more than 2 loanees for that position and we're already covered, " Caixinha said to O Jogo (printed edition; page 19) He wasn't needed, even if we recognize his lot of quality and competence.

Alex1972

1.) 18 Jun 2017 22:16:25
Now that should put all Gaul romurs to bed now and let's concentrate on getting walker and Dorrins and finish the final pieces of the jigsaw, let's go allout to get them to and forget Gauld Naismith and Lafferty hutton etc etc


2.) 18 Jun 2017 23:18:49
Read that Pedro has said he can see as many as FOURTEEN players leave Ibrox! Was wondering after the 8 that we pretty much were sure was on the list who could the other 6 be?
Heres my 8. Kiernan. Halliday. Forrester.
O'halloran. Windass. Crooks. Garner and Waghorn.
Do we think that Pedro was talking about some of the Younger lads? Burt. Rudden etc?
If he's thinking 14 then Holt and Dodoo's future may lay elsewhere. Thoughts.


3.) 19 Jun 2017 01:25:05
Im sure it's a total of 14 including the four who have already gone senderos hill and two loans that would leave hodson and dodoo to ad to your list to make the 14 i think.


4.) 19 Jun 2017 06:49:18
Garners already sold.

Allen And Gerrard list the players they want but Board has final say i'm afraid and the players mentioned in the papers will be not coming to us cause we simply can't afford the fees or the wages even celtic couldn't pay for the players mentioned either we might only get some of the loan players mentioned.

Frank Deboer is wanting the Rangers Job, imo we should give him the Job with a Scottish / British Rangers man as his assistant, the players see Murty as a pal and not as a Boss we need somebody who won't be afraid to make strong decisions and the right decisions.

Alex1972
