It's being reported that KK and SD have been close to an agreement for sometime that will allow us to sell our own shirts by way of a new more balanced retail contract.

If true, this can only be good news and hopefully signals the start of improved finances.

1.) 24 Mar 2017 09:13:53
Forgive the ignorance, but who is KK?


2.) 24 Mar 2017 09:16:29
Should read DK, not KK!


3.) 24 Mar 2017 10:02:54
Why can't folk just type actual names, the amount of times i have to pause half way through to play the initials guessing game drives me nuts.

Doesn't take much does it? You should try meditating or yoga

Must waste about 3 secs of your day 😂


6.) 24 Mar 2017 17:19:15
think this is nonsense mate where have u heard this and is there an official statement i don't mind rumours mate but not one's that are clearly made up.

the fat rat doesn't like us wants to jail DK
so why on earth would he back track on a deal that has made neither party a lot of money but suits him down to a tee so that king can gets the rough end of the deal


7.) 24 Mar 2017 18:23:21
Jim Stirling, do ye read the papers mate? Pretty much every rag has reported it or something like it. If it was made up then it's by someone other than BR65


8.) 25 Mar 2017 13:47:31
James Stirling, the very fact that Sports Direct hasn't made money on the deal because of the boycott means that there is no real winner and Ashley has a Board of Directors and shareholders other than himself that he is accountable to.

At some point he has to look at the Business aspects and not just his vendetta with King. With King apparently willing to step down as Chairman there is clearly a deal to be done.

Well said Dave King (Sunday Mail) but the fans he is describing have gone silent on here in recent weeks.

He said: "I differentiate supporters from fans, and in all the statements I issue from the club, I am very careful about when I talk about supporters and when I talk about fans. Supporters are always fans, but fans are not always supporters. So, when I look at the club, I talk about those that are buying season tickets in record numbers every season. I'm talking about the 50,000 supporters that arrived at Ibrox for the first game in the Third Division and gave the record UK crowd.

"There are some fans out there, and all clubs have them, who to me are not actually true supporters and there is a noise level out there which, to me, I should completely ignore. I'm really interested what the real supporters want and what we are doing for the club is for the real supporters.

All supporters are fans but not all fans are supporters. You've got Rangers fans who will criticise the manager after the first game.

And they'll tweet and they'll blog and they'll insult. They'll use language that a supporter would never use about their club. ".

BR65

1.) 25 Jun 2017 11:37:55
Totally agree BR65


2.) 25 Jun 2017 12:34:41
I like how he has been quietly working away on important issues like the merchandise deal and squad funds, while many on here have been slating him for doing nothing.

Well done Mr King. 👏


3.) 25 Jun 2017 12:49:44
Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Dave king has just proved that. i'm not his biggest fan and i've been outspoken about him in the past. That make me less of a fan/ supporter does it? Where was Dave king when we were making that history of a 50,000 sell out at the first game after demotion?
I for one am pleased about the investment and getting the sd deal sorted out but, you can't call someone a lesser supporter because they form an opinion of him or the shite Manager he hired (warburton) or the deals for shite players that he sanctioned. It's just my opinion and i know i will get some sick for this but, let's not overlook some of the mistakes this board have made.
It really boils my pish to see a rangers chairman being
so publicly outspoken. Conduct yourself with a little bit more class.


4.) 25 Jun 2017 13:38:50
Agreed, Yogibear.


5.) 25 Jun 2017 15:09:13
Yep, too many of our players had too much to say for themselves last year, and DK seems to be banging a drum unnecessarily in my opinion.
Let's stay relatively quiet and if at Xmas we are still in the hunt for silverware then we can start to be bit more boisterous.
We have done nothing so far to be noisy and sarcastic to other teams, . Even Celtic!
Onwards and upwards (with a bit of humility and dignity)


6.) 25 Jun 2017 16:53:58
So what is being said is that it's ok for you to share opinions on here but its not ok for Dave King to share his opinions of the supposed fans who criticise the board, manager and team, at every opportunity?

Double standards me thinks!


7.) 25 Jun 2017 17:42:54
Great posts lads. Despite frequent criticism from more than a fair few on here DK has consistently acted in the best interest of the club. At times I believ his personal communication and style could have been better, but there was never any doubt over his intentions or integrity.


8.) 25 Jun 2017 18:55:24
He's right. There's too many fans quick to criticize. Even Pedro has got it. After the 5-1 his tactics were getting slaughtered. He had assessed the players and decided some weren't up-to it, while others were given a chance to prove they were.

It has since came to light there was nothing to be gained longer term playing dead wood.

Painful at the time, but obviously not many were trusted to carry his instructions.


9.) 25 Jun 2017 19:33:02
Fd, just because the fans want to know what is going on, it's not always practical to tell us. If he said what was going on behind the scenes and what his intentions were it would give Ashley info and let him prepare a counter.

Trust the board to do their job (until it's blatantly obvious that the can't) and support them through good and bad

What to we think of the ongoing BBC ban at Rangers?

Is it not time that both sides stopped behaving like children and sorted it out?

We as license payers are funding the BBC and expect fair and balanced reporting of everything (not just RFC) but the club also have to realise that they are penalising the fans by reducing the amount of coverage that we get on the BBC

All a bit pathetic?

BR65

1.) 10 Jun 2017 16:12:12
BBC are not banned from ibrox it is chris mclaughlin who is banned the BBC just spat the dummy out cause 1 of their reporters got banned for his anti rangers drivvle the BBC is full of rangers haters


2.) 10 Jun 2017 16:40:45
Pathetic is the right word to describe both parties.


3.) 10 Jun 2017 20:22:48
I am hoping that the Government of the UK withdraws the license fee and tells the BBC to find other means of funding. It is hideous that people in the UK still have to pay a license fee for what is now a substandard Television station!


4.) 10 Jun 2017 22:21:39
Well said TOMUSA 👍and also was it Not the old board who banned the BBC reporter


5.) 10 Jun 2017 23:09:59
The BBC has no credibility whatsoever and who cares if they refuse to report on our games. That weasel McLaughlin has spent years giving unbalanced views about the club and eventually the board told him where to go. It was the BBC who then spat the dummy out. Hell mend them they are a spent force.

All quiet from the Dave King haters!

Surely there must be something positive to say this week?

BR65

1.) 01 Jun 2017 09:35:37
Yes absolutely! We have been crying out for him to get his hands in his pockets, and finally things are moving in the right direction, i can only think that last season there was the biggest boot up the rectum he required to wake up! But is he funding this? Is it the season ticket money? Or are there investors?


2.) 01 Jun 2017 09:58:17
It was said from the word go last season that King never trusted Warburton. King wanted Caixinha from the word go be it as an assistant to start with. That's why here is money now


3.) 01 Jun 2017 10:13:17
dazrfc86, why does it matter who is paying for it?
Dave King is a shareholder same as many others. He put his hands in his pockets to buy a stake that would give him some control when no one else would do it.
He has put together a board and given the club stability.
He is now making funds available to support our new manager who is attempting to bring in a caliber of player that is way above what we have.
He said there was a 5 year plan. he did not say all the money would be spent in year 1 or 2.


4.) 01 Jun 2017 11:14:55
I didn't say it mattered but from day one we've been scraping money up to get rotten players, and suddenly we are all out, not that i'm complaining, but if its season ticket money, we had that last season and nothing was spent on fees, barring garner really, so i am curious where and who it is coming from


 

 

01 May 2017 19:09:21
Lots of naysayers on here seem to be wanting Pedro and King to fail just so they can say "told you so"

Strange way to behave as a supporter.

Place your £50 wagers as follows:

1. Rangers to win a cup next year and finish 2nd less than 15 points behind Celtic

2. Pedro to lose 30% of league games before Christmas and get sacked before the season ends.

3. Dave King and cohorts brings in a further £10m to invest before Christmas

Whichever ends up correct, those of us that picked the right view shares to whole pot.

Come on guys, Miller was always going to be offered a new contract once Pedro had seen him in his current run of form.

He is easily our best performing player but he's 37.

If Pedro had simply agreed with everyone on day one and given Miller a contract it would not have said much about him.

Only question now is whether they agree how much he is worth but given that no other PL team that would want him can match our (weak) budget, he will sign.

BR65

1.) 26 Apr 2017 16:23:26
he has had his best parts of his career at ibrox and he doesn't want to leave and thank feck for that as he is a good leader and great role model for younger players coming through the ranks, al they have to do is watch him with the work ethic he has and try to emulate that no matter how tallented they are.

hope mckay reads this as his work ethic isn't up to scratch and needs to take a leaf out of millers book.

The guys who won't have Naismith and the like back would rather wallow 30 points below Celtic smothered by their own bitterness.

They are not true fans of the club - true fans only want to see the club successful again.

Time to move on "fans"

Spot on Bear.

TOMUSA has an agenda against King.

He manages to have a go at King in virtually every post and cannot quite bring himself to acknowledging the fact that King and only King put his money in to buy a controlling stake (along with the other current supporting shareholders)

I have asked TOMUSA and other similar detractors on many occasions who or what is the alternative (based on at least a smidgeon of reality) but oddly science is always the loud reply.

I'm guessing that Pedro has looked at him last season and in training and has decided that he's either not good enough or his attitude is not right.

That being the case, he would rather get decent cash for him now than nothing later.

Fantasy football is great but we play in the real world - trust the manager

Tried and Tested?

O'Halloran?
Barton?

Tried and tested in Scotland you mean rather than proven players with skill, temperament and experience?

I get your point but every one of the signings is a big step up from the player they are replacing - granted that life in Glasgow has its stresses for these guys but Pedro knows and trusts them
