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.

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


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!


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



08 Dec 2017 09:44:32
We can all thank the real reason DM hasn't taken the Rangers Job, The Media and everybody pundits) having to much to say, he's had a real bad taste of it especially in the last few weeks and he knows joining Rangers it would just get a hundred times worse and he's decided he would rather live without it as his family would also get dragged into it, also the time and messing about our board took to finally approach Aberdeen for him didn't go down well at all either! how do i know this? i live in Aberdeen but come from a mad Rangers Family and have supported them for 40 years, and i have a family member who is a grade 2 offical Refree who knows DM well and talks to him on quite a regular basis. d


1.) 08 Dec 2017 09:54:16
Next. DM decided to stay good luck to him. Plenty of options. If Murty had beat Dundee and Hamilton he would have job by now. We are in safe hands with Murty. Why the rush when most likely have little to spend on players in Jan anyway. Half the support didn't want DM anyway. Let's get the right person and if it takes until next year so be it.

2.) 08 Dec 2017 09:55:43
Media my backside, the only people to blame are that useless excuse of a board!

3.) 08 Dec 2017 14:15:39
DM has stated he is happy at Aberdeen. Who's to say he would have joined 5 weeks ago? He's made his bed and as a man he has to deal with the regret if any. He didn't want the job so now time to forget and move on.

4.) 08 Dec 2017 13:07:35
Stop being paranoid and behaving like Celtic fans with your conspiracy theories about the media, it’s embarrassing.

5.) 08 Dec 2017 16:36:15
How could he have been approached 5 weeks ago? It’s already clear that as our previous manager was still on Garden Leave, we were unable to progress appointing a new manager until either we terminated that contract (incurring a significant financial outlay) or Pedro seeks to cancel his contract by moving to a new appointment, which happened on Saturday 2nd December. I wish everyone would stick to the facts, before slaying the board in respect of the process they followed.

Surely seeking amicable terms with the previous manager and back room staff, saving money which can be invested in the new manager or playing staff is credit to the Board?

The Mcinnes saga is embarrassing, but probably linked to him personally feeing loyalty to his current chairman and his preference to work without the involvement of a director of Football, as well as the addition of the pressure he inherits as the manager of such a big club that is still rebuilding

He’s made his decision, we move on, Murty is a safe pair of hands for now - let the Board take their time and we will eventually get the right man for the job

6.) 08 Dec 2017 20:28:19
Good post Bearnecessitie

7.) 08 Dec 2017 21:26:43
the facts are simple, rangers asked to speak to dm, aberdeen refused, dm then declined to even speak to rangers. he has his reasons, anything we think it is is purely speculation. maybe he thought he didn't want it since half the fans didn't want him. maybe the risk of failure is too much. remember he also knows how hostile us fans get if result aren't going our way. it can't be wages or what's in th transfer kitty because he didn't discuss those. matter closed move on.

8.) 09 Dec 2017 02:57:45
I've not been on here for months so I'm not your usual sniper. Admittedly I don't appear in peace either.
All this official/ unofficial nonsense please give it a rest.
Media wise I'd say he has been shoehorned. There was a real chance due to that. He probably considered. Come on though lads. IF a few days ago he said F it that wouldn't of sold papers would it? He didn't have to sit directly with any agent. Unofficially he could of sat with or talked to any rangers man that was connected for a casual conversation. He would of asked the right questions, the ones that aren't openly talked about. Made his decision with that non publicised info and said no. Thought he was a shoo-in. The growth and projection figures of the accounts and the vitality of that hinge clearly didn't wash so he walked away.

9.) 09 Dec 2017 08:56:57
So bear necessities your saying pedro walked away with no payment, 3 years left on the deal. So our last 2 managers have walked without a penny, lucky break there!

10.) 09 Dec 2017 11:22:26
I don’t have factual info re the severance arrangements Isle of Mull, but he was on Garden leave - so on full pay, and still technically in the post of Rangers Manager. He then took a new job, which would suggest he would be the one responsible for terminating the contract, as he would have to have resigned, so on those terms I can’t see why we would have had to pay anything, other than basic severance - I would expect this was something Pedro and the board agreed in an amicable fashion, that he would step away, remain under contract until he secured new employment

11.) 10 Dec 2017 09:42:25
alex 1972,
bang on he decided with his MRS.
forget all the other bull



04 Dec 2017 10:21:38

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.




08 Jan 2018 15:35:28
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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Why can't the rest of us fellow bears not see the big name players being mentioned will not be anywhere near Scotland let alone Ibrox unless its loans the names are only getting throwed about to pull the wool over our eyes so We go hurry and buy are season tickets, we don't have hardly any money and we've known this for a while so Where is this money coming from to buy, them and then pay there wages? its not going to happen i'm affraid, that days are long gone sadly.

He is an attacking midfielder but Has been playing on the right of midfield and occasionally On the left this season on the games i watched not central midfield but He can play there, can play across all of midfield mostly attacking box to box but Has and can play CDM also.

Zikos one poor performance from Goss doesn't suddenly make him a bad player, also it looked like Murty asked him to sit back for more cover and that's not his strengths he is far better off as holding midfielder who likes to get forward.

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.

He (morales) still does want away as soon as a team in the English premier league comes calling with a good offer, plus for 1 year more we are now paying him 3× the7grand we were paying him so that works out excellent for him 21 grand a week now and we won't see him past the summer of 2019 maybe even before that.

Sorry but Wes isn't imo one of the best keepers in the league and its nothing to do with his mistake against Ayr, there's at 3 keepers better than him just now in the Scottish premiership, Joe Lewis from the sheep, Craig Gordon, Kilmarnock keeper I've forgot his name and maybe even Hearts keeper as well, like i said my opinion but he's definitely not the best unfortunately.
