So the Ref that was in charge of the Ross County v Celtic game is one of the officials for the Old Firm Semi-Final! Do not think this bodes well for us Bears as there is a possibility that any 50-50 challenge and the decision could be now swayed in that mobs decision!

Only thing I'm not sure about is what Don Robertson's job is on Sunday? Don't know if he is going to be one of the Linesmen or if he is the 4th official in the Stand?

Anyways I just found this out through reading the paper on Friday but what's your thoughts Bears? There's probably going to be a tight offside call at some point and if its Mr Robertson is to make the call and gets it massively wrong it'll be carnage!

I do not think the SFA should be putting this man in such a position, but like I said, I do not know his job come Sunday. Bad enough that Collum is the Referee in the first place!


1.) 22 Apr 2017 10:51:37
He's one of the goal line refs I believe.

2.) 22 Apr 2017 10:57:03
the SFA are clearly scared of celtic and are a woeful organisation how can it be that they can't deal wi browns appeal til next week but could instantly hand schalk a 2 match ban for his dive its an absolute laughing stock of a set up

3.) 22 Apr 2017 11:38:45
If we're the best on the day we will win enough of the conspiracy theories we sound like that lot

4.) 22 Apr 2017 12:28:33
It's just the Celtic way, trying to put undue pressure on the refs, in order to get any advantage they can. They are just getting their excuses in early in case their world beating team doesn't win.

5.) 22 Apr 2017 13:09:12
Colshygers Aberdeen, celtic, hibs and rangers were all told in advance of last weekends games that any issues / appeals would not be heard until the 27th due to Monday being a bank holiday . Shalke had no option but to accept the 2 game ban as he could have got more if he appealled.

6.) 22 Apr 2017 14:52:37
Pathetic. You can only do your job on a Monday. Country backwards. But the weaker player getting a game 😂



08 Apr 2017 14:15:37
I have a huge concern about Transfers next season, and I'm not talking about players coming in! We know Caixinha will have a limited budget and think that any players we sell, their Fee will go straight into Caixinha's Transfer Funds.

I think that out of the players we want to sell or not, we may get bids for Tavs Waghorn and McKay. how much I don't know, but I think that Clubs could be interested.

Then there are players like Kiernan, Halliday, O'halloran, Forrester, Dodoo and Holt, who I think we should keep as the lad can play, but has looked nothing like the player he once was, but give him another season under Pedro.

Anyway, who is going to bid for these guys? Will they take a cut in wages? I do not want to see us paying off players to rip up their contract! Think it would make more sense to loan these players out and pay a small percentage of wages. I don't know if this would make sense financially but please no more players holding us to ransom on top of ex-managers!

What's the best thing to do Bears? Thoughts.


1.) 08 Apr 2017 17:01:10
Andy1872 the players you would keep are the players i would get shot of if we are to improve for next season.

2.) 08 Apr 2017 20:23:12
Total clear out a few players to keep maybe but the manager will have his say so it will be next season when we can judge so chill out these so called supporters do my nut in keep believing we still have the semi to look forward too and another against them if we get one of them i will be happy

3.) 09 Apr 2017 20:52:50
Ronnie it was only Holt i said about keeping fot at least 1 more season.



31 Mar 2017 16:24:23
I've got a feeling that Caixhina has told the players that from now till end of season they will be coming in on Wednesdays. I think he will have spoke to the team and explained that by doing this at this time is a brilliant statement of intent AND with the Players all of them up for it, anytime they're asked all will be saying that its the right thing to do.

I think Caixhina has done a brilliant bit of work here and I'm hoping that the main reason for it is because he totally gets the importance of getting into the Cup Final and denying Celtic the Treble!

I'm sure that the session on Wednesday will be light physically BUT the fact that he is getting the players together to go over systems, set-pieces or whatever I just think it is a master stroke even in PR! As what I've read the media have really taken to him too, with his interviews going well.

But again I'm sure he will have told players that the Club and squad must show that we are doing everything we can to give us even that extra 1% going into remainder of season. I expect that the squads days off will return to normal after a certain amount of time but if Caixhina thinks he needs to he Wilkinson revert back to 1 day off.

And if any players are stroppy about it then all they're saying is they do not want to be at the Club, will not be in the squad and makes his job slightly easier as he knows he'll need to trim wage bill to invest Ibrox players he does want to bring in.


1.) 31 Mar 2017 17:08:54
Heard him say they would play a game on a Wednesday probably against reserves which is always a good thing keeps them sharp and gives younger boys a chance to prove themselves win win in my opinion.

2.) 31 Mar 2017 21:58:27
I'm happy we took him on. Alex McLeish, Warbs and Ally were boring. Caixhina is bringing the passion and pride back. I'm 100% behind him. I'm putting £10 on at 5-1 tomorrow.

3.) 31 Mar 2017 22:50:58
Its all one bringing passion and pride back on a training pitch, like any manager he will be judged on what happens on matchday.

4.) 01 Apr 2017 08:07:42
His match day debut was pretty impressive.



31 Mar 2017 16:00:30
Read that Caixhina was looking at a 25 year old South American playing in the Bundisliga.


1.) 31 Mar 2017 16:42:52
Sorry lads he's not South American he's Swiss! Currently plays for Hoffinhiem I think?

2.) 31 Mar 2017 19:10:02
Are you talking about Steven Zuber? He's rated at 8m so doubt it would be

3.) 31 Mar 2017 21:41:48
Could be Fabian Schar. 25year old centre back for hoffenheim. Valued about 2 million.
Total guess tho as have heard nothing

4.) 31 Mar 2017 21:53:37
Schar is valued at £9 million and juventus, arsenal and Liverpool have been linked in the past 2 year. No chance he's coming to ibrox

5.) 01 Apr 2017 13:15:33
Swiss lad playing in Bundisliga that's on the radar is Harris Seferovic 25 years, Striker.

6.) 01 Apr 2017 13:30:20
Obviously some supporters reckon we'll spend £9 million on the one player judging by the two disagreements lol. Be lucky if we spend that on 4 players never mind the one.



26 Mar 2017 14:08:06
Bears. After reading a few reports regarding King saying that investment will happen for Pedro I've the feeling that King and the board have been holding back money and I now believe that Pedro could receive a Transfer Budget in the region of 10 million!

One thing that does worry me is that if certain players refuse to leave due to a wage decrease then we must loan them out whilst trying to get as much of their wage paid for by the other club!

I do not want to see us just paying players off to get rid of them, but I really do not think that this will have a huge impact on how much Pedro gets as King is reported to have said that he will invest significantly and that our new manager will have more to spend than Warbs did if needed!

Really do think that a Transfer Kitty of 10 million could happen.


1.) 26 Mar 2017 14:57:12
What are you basing that figure on?

2.) 26 Mar 2017 15:59:56
Highly doubt it. Maybe a couple of million here and there then a couple of small fees on rough diamonds from Portugal, Greece and whatever other countries pedro has coached in. Might get a tidy fee for the likes of tavernier and kiernan since warburton rates them so much. As long as we get a decent quality of players who can handle the pressure then I'm happy and it's a good start

3.) 26 Mar 2017 16:37:52
The retail deal would have to be sorted for the budget to be anywhere near 10 million, sorry but I can't see it being anywhere near or even half that figure.

4.) 26 Mar 2017 21:14:20
4-5 million?

5.) 27 Mar 2017 00:10:34
So you think King has been saving up cash, and you think it's about £10m. I would replace the word think with hope.

6.) 27 Mar 2017 01:14:48
If it is 10 million then real chance challenging the title right players coming in etc, I personally think this league just needs about 12 million to win this league

7.) 27 Mar 2017 09:56:42
Rangers need £20m and a bit of good luck to have any chance of winning the SPL next season! Chances are we will need to replace a number of players including Tavernier, (who will be off to Nottingham Forrest), we need a centre back with some quality, we need to either sign Hyndman or replace him with a player of similar ability and we need two other quality players, one for holding midfield and a striker.

For the right quality they won't come cheap. If we are lucky we might recoup £5m from selling the aforementioned Tavernier, Kiernan, Halliday and a couple of others. If Crooks comes back and can do a job for us it will be a major plus as would a fit Rossiter but that is hope rather than expectation.

I just hope that Pedro can find some gems in Portugal, South America etc., that will improve us to a level that can challenge for the league.

8.) 27 Mar 2017 11:42:11
Dont know where some of these figures are getting pulled from lads. a couple of players in the 500k bracket and a few frees will be our whack and we'll just need to hope Pedro has a few gems up his sleeve.

9.) 27 Mar 2017 12:05:04
TOMUSA : Not sure we need a holding midfielder now if we are to be continuing with our improved pressing game.

10.) 27 Mar 2017 12:12:41
i doubt we will win the league next year but we should be closer and to the 10 million comment i say dream on Andy dream on.

we will never spend that much and even if we do i can see the dark side spending about 25 mill this year to compete in Europe, so we will still be behind them squad wise but i can't see them winning the league with the same amount of points as this year as we will be more direct and more clinical next year (or at least i hope)

i hope i'm wrong and Pedro gets a war-chest of 15 million but i doubt that very much

11.) 27 Mar 2017 13:01:10
James Stirling, without a decent transfer budget Pedro will struggle to compete with Celtic and that will not be his fault. While I don't see Celtic spending the sort of money that you mention I do believe that they will strengthen their squad and to be honest they have some of the best talent in Scotland right now. I watched their young full back in action for Scotland last night and he was excellent and they have a number of very good players. They could lose one or two in transfers down south but would secure big fees for them. Right now, with the exception of Hyndman, a loan player, we have no one of the same quality.

I suspect that King is hoping that a deal can be struck with Sports direct so that we can generate additional income and also have a Share Issue that will bring in new funds but if we are hoping that he will personally put in more funds then I think we are wasting our time.

12.) 27 Mar 2017 13:09:27
DK did raise £7m+ recently from selling one of his companies in New York.
Don't want to speculate, however, he is sitting on a cash pile at the moment.

Bears, all Caixinha can do and all I want to see him do is this; during the Transfer Window Caixinha must get rid of Kiernan, Halliday, Forrester, O'halloran, Garner and Waghorn.

Rangers must use their head to get some players; loan deals may make more sense financially instead of taking a huge hit financially due to the miss management of players de-valuing them.

Players such as Garner and O'halloran could go on loan with an option to buy at the end of the deal instead of accepting 500k for a 1.8m buy! Also I would rather a Club pay hopefully 100% but even 80% of a players wages for a season would be better than accepting 100-250k for a 500k buy then at end of loan the Club may offer a better bid and also the player has hopefully put himself in the shop window.

Deals for possibly a younger player at a Championship or League 1 Club could see us using a player + cash deal to oust some players.

Anyways what Caixinha does pre-season and the way we play next season to me means giving Celtic a game, taking points off them, rubbing every team at least once, finishing no lower than 2nd, 15-20 points above 3rd and having a squad at a fortress that are looking forward to winning the League in the following season.

Expectations must be realistic and Transfer Funds must be released we will not compete if King gives Caixinha £2-3 million for a season!


1.) 24 Apr 2017 12:50:15

Agree with a lot you say and of course you need to give the manager time however I was really disappointed that he allowed the team to produce such a pathetic gutless display. If you can't motivate players to perform in a cup semi final against your biggest rivals you never will. Yesterday was appalling and some of the players should be ashamed of their display

2.) 24 Apr 2017 15:21:34
yesterday was worse than the game against hearts at tynecastle, then again what have dundee and hearts done since they beat rangers, nothing in fact the just seem to do a 1 off up their game against us

3.) 24 Apr 2017 15:20:18
Yeah Bengy, agree with you regarding the players attitude, its beyond me, no matter the tactics BUT Caixinha MUST learn from this and out with re-thinking tactics if he feels or his style differs when having to heterosexual it through to players that their in a game then give the stage to the Captain! And yeah I know Wallace doesn't sermon like the best choice but currently Miller has it and I think he would be ideal to fire the team up for the game at Ibrox.

Next season Caixinha has a decision to make on excactly this either make Miller Captain nxt season which if he stays i'd go with although he prob isn't going to start or last every match so need to see who he brings in but definitely change it and let Wallace concentrate on being a solid LB which I think he is, letting Beerman take up the LW position.

Would like Caixinha to put some of the headlines that have been written about him and the squad up in dressing room same as Smith did! I hope he now realises a thing or two about the press and retaliates by going tonto!



10 Apr 2017 21:55:23
How much is Miller on a week? Caixinha must really think hard about what type of player he can bring in for the same amount i really hope he stays he offers so much on and off pitch. If he needs to cut the squad to bring in his own then Waghorn must be top of the list! i'm unsure about Dodoo and Garner feel they coukd be so so much better playing in a system with 2 up front.


1.) 11 Apr 2017 10:53:30
I am confused about the contract situation, is there a chance that they are trying to get Miller to work off the pitch as staff?

I'd much rather keep the guy on the pitch for now and would have extended him by now!

I agree about Dodoo, Garner for me has the effort but seems to be missing something.

In a different formation he might be better, I have seen a few decent headers cleared off the line from Garners attacks so he knows where the goal is.

2.) 11 Apr 2017 21:07:14
Garner isn't working out so far. Dodoo has a lot more ability. Waghorn is overweight and off the pace

3.) 11 Apr 2017 21:36:59
I think the manager is making Miller sweat so he works his socks off, he's trying to get the very best out him and keep him hungry!

4.) 12 Apr 2017 20:56:31
I think Millers the last person in the squad that he would need to make sweat and work hard as its already in Kennys make up. that tactic should be saved for guys like Mckay, MOH, Windass, Forrester



03 Apr 2017 21:26:51
Does anyone know how quickly Caixinha can bring in Transfers? I.e. When does the window open? Because if we want a fair crack at getting into Europa Group Stages then time to get a squad to get to know each other (gel) is crazy important! Think this even applies to Freebies too!

The only thing that could help us regarding time is that if we win the cup we go into the hat at a later stage yeah?

Plus if that mob win the Cup does that mean that the team in 2nd would get that benefit surely that benefit does not go to 4th! I know that say Hearts get Europe due to either us the sheep or through tic winning the Cup but that cannot mean they get the bonus for it? Tell me if I'm wrong Bears! But the way I see it is if we get 2nd and the dark side win Cup then we get past 1st round or the sheep get this if they do yeah?

If there is any justice in this world then we will pick up the Scottish Cup a Cup that should have been at Ibrox last year! Keep Kiernan away from Hampden!
One more thing, I can't get my head round the fact that against Well we ignored Sendaros when having a depleted defence! The guy must be showing nothing in training but I wonder why he was even on the bench.

I think that 3rd is our destination and if this is the case I hope Caixinha would play players like Bates Atacki (spelling) and some other Youths IF we have a solid cushion between us and 4th going into the final 4-5 games after Old Firm.

Anyways thoughts on this Bears, and we can win this Cup! Not only does this Club need it the fans but the tic's bottle does smash when trying to get the Treble over the line eh.


1.) 03 Apr 2017 23:21:19
Surely Caixinha will keep Hill and Miller for another season basically due to finances! Got a feeling that any deal offered will be on reduced wages tho with bonuses. By keeping Hill means were only shelling out for 1 CH plus out of our frontline i'd keep Garner and Miller.

I'm just concerned as to trimming the squad. Hoping Warbs comes in for a couple plus Hyndman ain't going to go across the City, he'll either stay at Bournemouth or a mid table Prem other a Championship Club will take him and offer anything between 25k-45k a week we cannot compete and don't think the tic will pay it same with Roberts he could demand more than that plus City will want at least 5m+ for him.

the tic could afford it but think they will want a more established older stronger player for that kind of money!

2.) 03 Apr 2017 23:22:38
All Scottish teams who qualify for the Europa league start in the first round.

3.) 04 Apr 2017 09:51:33
Fab. Scottish cup winners get into the 2nd round. If Celtic win it goes to 2nd place in the league.

4.) 04 Apr 2017 11:00:49
I maybe wrong only show but I'm sure it was addressed a month or so ago . All Europa teams start first round this season regardless of league position or cup wins . Maybe an ed could shed some light

5.) 04 Apr 2017 11:16:55
Scotland's Uefa coefficient has slipped from 23rd to 25th.

It means that the Scottish Cup winners as well as the league's second and third-placed clubs will kick off their European campaigns at the end of June

I missed this! Well that is a bloody shame.

6.) 04 Apr 2017 11:42:14
I'm sure Hibs entered competition after Hearts and Dons had played the first round?

7.) 04 Apr 2017 11:43:07
Bears, we do not have the money for Hyndman or we cannot spend such a large percentage of our Transfer Fund on him I would really like him ti stay but what is he on at Bournemouth? Also staying down South and a Club can offer the lad anything between 25-45k a week we'd be pushing boat out at 20k! So its a loan job as I don't think we are paying 100% weekly wages.

8.) 04 Apr 2017 11:54:42
i think king kenny should get another year and used sparingly!
clint hill shouldn't be anywhere near a rangers top!

our defence has been a disaster ths year and hill has only been the best out of a bad bunch!

he is too slow and needs replaced.

9.) 04 Apr 2017 11:56:28
Optimistic feelings about next season. We have a group of players who I think DO have potential and when we signed them I had high hopes, players like Rossiter Windass Garner are guys who I truly believe have the ability to do their do extremely well.

Thinking we should sell McKay as there is a huge chance we will lose him for nothing as a Club down South will take a chance on him and be able to offer him more wages. Think he knows this and his head will turn, we need the money too.

10.) 04 Apr 2017 12:55:14
All europa league spots are defiently into the first round this year due to the drop in co-efficent

11.) 04 Apr 2017 14:14:49
didn't he just sign a new three year deal (mckay)?

12.) 04 Apr 2017 16:53:41
If Rossiter can stay fit, Crooks comes back fully fit, Kranjcar can stay fit and Pedro is able to develop Windass and Garner then we could have a good quality team next season! We just need King and Co., to find the investment for four or five other quality players to come in and play alongside the aforementioned and Tavernier.

I don't see any point in keeping Hill or sadly Miller, (unless the latter was to be a player coach), and if we can get Warburton or someone to give us a decent fee for Kiernan, McKay, O'Halloran, Waghorn etc., then we should move them on!

We need a tough tackling centre back, a good strong left back, a quality winger, a quality striker and a quality midfield player, and we need the funding to make it happen!

13.) 05 Apr 2017 14:06:46
If we get rid of McKay we will need more than 1 quality winger



31 Mar 2017 15:54:30
The only issue with Gilmour is he could be technically brilliant and have a Hammer of a shot on him, attributes oozing BUT the lad still has a fair bit to go physically! Haven't seen the lad in the flesh only pics . So if he stays and he turns 16 do we think Pedro will give him game time in first team? Should he?

The chances of him getting clambered by a thirty odd year opponent would be devastating! Billy may want to know if he will get a shot next season and I know some players have made their debut as young as 16 I even think the lad Knox played for Livingston at poss 16 maybe 17 and I know Rodney did but he did look a lot more built than our Billy does! So do we pay the lad 7-8-9k a week knowing that he'll be playing Academy football next season as the risk ogre putting him in the first team may be too soon for him physically!

If Billy does decide to stay and I hope he does I hope he is truly confident in his ability and knows that he doesn't need to go chasing the wages Down South! I do think the lad would stay if we offered a package close to what Chelsea are offering. Hope we sign Billy up on a 4yr Contract AND put a minimum fee on him of at least 4-5 million.
This deal could also do a lot for King IF he sanctions this deal I for one will tip much hat as at end of the day its a gamble! Its knocking back 400-600k so if Billy stays then fair play to King. All he needs to do now is realise that he should communicate with the fans more and 1st up tell us where we are financially and how much he is giving Pedro!

Surely Caixhina would have been informed just exactly how much King would invest in HIM, Caixhina would not have took the job unless he was told that a minimum would be given to him but HOW MUCH? Do NOT tell us what we want to hear then hop on a plane to South Africa with his fingers crossed just tell us our situation and this is what we're doing because of it! Anyways thoughts Bears, will Gilmour stay? And how much do you think Pedro will have to spend?


1.) 31 Mar 2017 21:48:11
He is tiny, even for his age. Still built like a boy, at 15 you can look as good as Messi, doesn't mean he will end up anything special.

2.) 01 Apr 2017 19:34:24
Personally for the sake of 500k I'd love to keep the lad and get him involved in the 1st team next season, I totally get the point about not being physically strong but neither was Ryan Gauld and he looked pretty decent in the spl.
Even just training with the 1st team regularly will toughen the boy up then we can start giving him 10/ 15 minute cameos at ibrox and see how he does.
Obviously it would be a win win for everyone, us, Gilmour and even scotland if the boy can get regular football with us, then in 3/ 4 years pick which team he wants to play for and know that he won't have to go out on loan.
But if he moves now who can honestly blame him

3.) 02 Apr 2017 02:57:54
Billy gilmour mind is made up way money and so is his family's another great prospect going to England that we will never see again like John fleck



26 Mar 2017 14:24:16
After reading a few reports regarding King giving Caixinha a significant Transfer Budget! By the sounds of it I initially thought something between 5-6 million but i'm now thinking King and the Board have held money back and I've a feelin a Budget of anything around 10-12 million could be possible! Just hope that players do not stay just for a few extra quid at Ibrox i hope that we would at least loan players and recoup as much of their wages from the other Club rather than go down the route of paying players off also if they don't go. What's your thoughts Bears?


1.) 26 Mar 2017 15:39:00
10-12 million? Absolutely no chance.

2.) 26 Mar 2017 16:05:15
Andy 1872.best laugh Iv`e had all weekend, King making £10-£12M Available for players, surely your not serious.

Guys like yourself that King aims all his overspend bull straight at.

Same speak, same time last year, over investment. sort out Ashley.
challenge Celtic. back the manager. nobody likes us but i`ll fight them all speech.

Must be season book renewal time or groundhog day.

Yeah Celtic do have a better side but 2-0 and 1a penalty they are not un-catchable. Pedro must prove that he is the best man for the job when it comes to recruitment and promotion from development squad plus the transfer of outgoing players.
This team is NOT his and results outwith the last Old Firm game and the nxt must be taken with this in mind.

IMO Rossiter Nico Beerman and Atayaki will have a huge affect on how we play. We have 2 exciting Wingers in Beerman and Atayaki that could save us millions! These guys are young hungry and will want to show everyone what they are all about and I hope they get the chance.

Same with Rossiter I hope he wants to repay the Club for all we have done. Nico has tons of ability and with Rossiter its just a case of fitness BUT these 4 players could help Caixinha loads when it comes to just how much he can spend on any 1 player. I want to see Caixinha buying quality 3-4 players in the 1.5-2m bracket 3-4 freebies and 2-3 loans.

Its all on Caixinha and his ability to bring in players at a decent age 24-29 physically ready I know 2-3 will be younger guys who Pedro thinks are unearthed GEMS!

I know that Caixinha will be thinking about how much he will have to spend and the wage bill as I'm sure we will see more than one free transfer arriving BUT for the money Kenny is on can he really afford to axe him! He brings so much and he appears fit and I can't remember the last time he received an injury which seems to happen to our players not only in games but training! He also knows the Club and what its all about and to have someone lime that is invaluable

If King wanted a pay off or whatever surely he would just sanction Transfers fot whoever for whatever he could get plus why would he pay Al Gharafi the compensation for Caixinha, something Clubs with any decorum and manners would do! Still can't believe Warbs tried to get King to wave that and Forest would have been in on it! A Club that earns a few bob facing relagation or not!

Don't think Jacks coming if he knew there was a chance and he was open to it then the best thing to do would have been to say nothing OR that being the subject of interest from any team is flattering etc but to say to your Manager that a move to us was not on speaks volumes IF it is true that the player did in fact speak to his Manager

Forrester hasn't really played since Caixinha arrived and didn't get much time previous especially last 3 or so months so I've just concluded that Caixinha doesn't rate him and must not be showing anything in training so definitely looks like he's off!

Yeah Bengy, agree with you regarding the players attitude, its beyond me, no matter the tactics BUT Caixinha MUST learn from this and out with re-thinking tactics if he feels or his style differs when having to heterosexual it through to players that their in a game then give the stage to the Captain! And yeah I know Wallace doesn't sermon like the best choice but currently Miller has it and I think he would be ideal to fire the team up for the game at Ibrox.

Next season Caixinha has a decision to make on excactly this either make Miller Captain nxt season which if he stays i'd go with although he prob isn't going to start or last every match so need to see who he brings in but definitely change it and let Wallace concentrate on being a solid LB which I think he is, letting Beerman take up the LW position.

Would like Caixinha to put some of the headlines that have been written about him and the squad up in dressing room same as Smith did! I hope he now realises a thing or two about the press and retaliates by going tonto!

i think we over estimate how many players we will have to bring in even when talking about the players we want out. those who 100% must go are kiernan. halliday, o'halloran, forrester, waghorn.

players out depending on bids for mckay, garner. or out on a loan deal with option to buy instead of accepting a very low transfer fee!

players definetly going; sendaros, toral, hyndman.
out of all those players 2 are usually in starting 11. toral and hyndman and 2 more mckay and waghorn in and out starting 11!

so if all these players go we do need to add to the squad but in terms of strengthening the squad and buying quality then a top class ch to partner wilson with bates and hill back up.

remember hill's contract will be renegotiated and i think for money he will be on then he could for a job for 1 more season or we bring in a free for around same wages, bates will get game time but still developing.

a top class attacking winger. i believe we do have 2 within our club that will hold their own nxt season in beerman lw and atayaki rw along with rossiter krancjar holt windass crooks we could have a decent midfield.

a £2-3m attacker £20-25k a week.
if king gives caixinha between £5-7m then £1.5-2m on a ch. £2m attmid.
£2-3m on a striker.

these players could poss demand a wage of anything between £15-25k a week.
other transfers brought in would be end of contracts say 2-3 and loans hopefully not too young from top teams with large squads needing to give fringe players game time with rangers picking up a percentage of wage.
all in all 7-9 players in and around poss 11-14 out!

already heard about the lad paulinho from a 2nd division Portuguese outfit and ok from what i've heard sounds promising but i hope to see players arriving that ply their trade in an established lge. i know there will be some hidden gems.

at end of day. if caixinha has a decent budget he will not just be going for 2nd division players or end of contracts!
it all depends on king and budget

Deanobear and TOMUSA, I agreed we need to invest in new players but as Tom said finances ain't great and to answer your question about selling not just Halliday but players like Forrester O'halloran then Clubs like Bury, Oxford and maybe other SPFL teams will bid and we will possibly have to give the player a cheque for some wage compensation if a player is going from 7k to 3-4k a week. Could also see some players be used in a Fee plus Player Transfers.

I do not want to see us taking huge financial hits on some players. For instance Garner 1.8m. I could see a club offering 500k and that for us right now is far too much of a deficit, I would rather see him go on loan with a Club picking up 80-100% of wages, this type of deal would be by far the best option for us financially! Even McKay, if a Club are interested instead of selling him for something between 500k-1m we should loan with option to buy as we know he has potential and like others at Ibrox have been used abysmally lowering their value!

But in regards to players coming in, due to finances 1 commanding CH with Wilson nxt to him would suffice, having Bates as back up with possibly Hill for one more year. I would like 4 CH's battling for a start and Wilson is a 1st choice, Bates still young but should get some game time nxt season so buy 1 powerful commanding CH with Bates and possibly Hill or another from development or a loan as back up.

We do have Rossiter, Krancjar coming back and Beerman who can play LW with Atayaki RW both these lads should be given a chance yeah it'd be great to go buy a player but even tho these lads are young playing down the wing a tad different physically from a CH or a CM these guys are FAST and from what I've seen from Beerman and been keeping up to date about Atayaki BOTH have tons of ability!

Currently we could have 2 young hungry fast wingers dying ti show everyone what they can do, could be worth 100k or 10m? Roberts at the Tic valued at 12m so you never know give the lads a crack at nxt season! Obviously give Wallace the LB spot as the guy is a good player he's solid and with games and confidence will do a job and again we must buy within our means and imo I want to keep Beerman in squad but i'd take McKay out loan him to Sheffield Utd or something and move Beerman to LW keep Wallace at LB he's been a great servant and I do not want to see him go for peanuts.

All in all we have a few players who at present due to the way they have been played and Coached their value and confidence has nose dived players such as McKay O'halloran Wallace and Holt although even after a short space of time Holt is starting to look like a player again. So point is I do not ever want to see a situation Transfer wise that resembles C. Adam or R. McCormack! Where we sell for £300-£400k only for the players to be going for £6-7-8m!

One more thing Bears, how much did King and the Board tell Caixinha he would have to spend on Transfers come summer. OPINIONS!

Would rather see Forrester etc loaned out with Club their at picking up as much of their wage as possible instead of sitting in Stand every week TOMUSA yeah hopfully this will happen and can see these deals being used for 3-4 players as u said I can't see many clubs bidding and if they do then a drop in their wages are on the cards which again will lead to us picking up tab with a pay out so prob better going down the loan route as some of these players may actually come on ti a game and putting themselves in shop window!
