Well, if the stories flying around are true that MW and weir could have been trying to escape then the board have done the right thing and moved them on.
I fully supported MW but if recent results and performances have been influenced by a weakening in his commitment then the board had only one option.
We need 100% commitment to the cause no matter what resources we can offer.

At least we can now play 442 eh?
2.) 10 Feb 2017 23:45:27
if the scripts are right and he has gone, then he was pushed by us the fans. whether you agree that he should go or not to actually boo our own managers or team before a game is low of the low and in 45 years of supporting our great team have never heard it before and hope to never hear it again. McCoist was on twice the salary, had a team with a greater budget than we have now and he got 4 years, MW got 4 months before the fans turned.
3.) 11 Feb 2017 02:37:54
McCoist was a total disaster as well and should never have been manager. He benefitted from his 'hero status' as a player but was found wanting in his first season when he threw away a substantial lead to capitulate in the league.
Warburton got little support from King despite his soundbites and got even less from Weir who is now showing his true colours if reports are correct and is nothing more than a snake.

Just reading Chris Suttons latest comments comparing DK to the Venky's at Blackburn.
He sound just like many supposed supporters on here which I find embarrassing.
Lots of you criticise him for his negative comments about the club but then jump on her and repeat the same tosh about "your club"
It's all very well having an opinion, wishing that we were in a far better place but we are where we are.
Get behind the club, the team, the board and the manager or join the CS fan club instead.
1.) 08 Feb 2017 21:49:58
People are entitled to their opinions and if Rangers fans don't want MW as manager it doesn't make them any less fans. The last couple of sentences in your post are stupid. I'm not interested in what Sutton has to say and I don't base my judgement on the manager on what he thinks
2.) 08 Feb 2017 22:31:20
Stewie25, My comments are stupid? Is that because my opinion differs from yours?
I disagree with your comments. I think you are less of a fan because you are not giving your club support.
Positivity breeds positive results.
Do you really think that Keirnan with be full of confidence when he walks on to the pitch next time after the constant barracking and intimidation he gets from fans?
C, early our coaches see something in the players that make them think that there is potential - they will be judged on results at the end of the season and throughout the rest or their tenure against the 5 year plan.
If it doesn't work out, they will be dumped.
In the meantime, real fans get behind the project
3.) 09 Feb 2017 07:17:12
No, BR. Just no.
Real fans are worried at the direction our club seems to be aimlessly drifting.
I could say YOU'RE not a real fan because you're happy to stand by and watch our club underachieve, but I won't because I'm not a selfrighteous as you.
4.) 09 Feb 2017 08:49:04
Sorry LWDawson, I'm not happy to seethe club underachieve and I would prefer that we were top of the league.
Unfortunately I'm realistic to know that that was never likely due to money and talent.
It's a building process that will take 3 years minimum.
We either believe in the board who rescued the club from pending oblivion and get behind their plan or we bail as sunshine supporters who cannot understand the reality or the bigger picture
5.) 09 Feb 2017 09:04:34
Who says we should be top? We are realistic, second was always the aim. However, realistically we are in a scrap for 3rd with Hearts. Me and many others believe this is unacceptable given our budget. Imagine if Hearts or the sheep had our budget!
The manager doesn't seem to have the ability to:
find a player, improve a player, play to the strengths of his squad, change a game.
6.) 09 Feb 2017 19:20:27
No I didn't say your comments were stupid I said the last 2 sentences were stupid. Please read my post correctly. To say either back the club or join the CS fan club is stupid. As I said before I'm not interested in what he says and I don't base my judgement on his comments
7.) 09 feb 2017 23:16:45
listen to all the negative doubting thomas's we have out there, my god there's a good few, although stewie25 does take the biscuit! never came across anyone like him! anyway, my point to the doubters! the season isn't finished, we've not finished 3rd or worse for that matter, or 2nd! we're currently sitting 3rd, but imo we'll finish 2nd! judge where we finish when the season ends! is that too hard for some of you to grasp? the season ends in may, not february!

Can't help but think that the money spent in England is moral repugnant.
+£1.5bn and £200k + per week wages are obscene - It amazes me why so little is made of it by the press or politicians
It's not really sport if it is all about how much money you have to spend.
1.) 01 Sep 2016 11:45:08
I don't know why people get so morally outraged by over inflated football transfers. If people want to pay over the odds for Sky, then Sky want to pay over the odds for a tv deal then the clubs will pay over the odds for players. It's a market.
It's no different from us dominating Scottish Football because of our larger fan base.
2.) 01 Sep 2016 12:28:40
Were you complaining when we were doing 9 in a row? Got to say it is ridiculous to pay people more in a month than some will make in a lifetime. If people are happy to be ripped off by Sky though, things won't change. Even in Scotland I see a lot of over paid, under worked fairies getting paid crazy money.
I have been saying for years the EPL will go tits up one day, it seems to get stronger all the time.
3.) 01 Sep 2016 12:30:24
Its different when our own football is being overlooked and paid an utter pittance. Our sky subscribers cash goes toward English teams, whom in-turn like to look down their nose and pour scorn on our game. Even now and possibly more so in the future, our kids will be supporting english teams rather than our own. Just because a football player is paid £200k per week against a football player paid £30k (celtic) this doesn't necessarily mean that they are streets ahead of the latter. Yes I agree they will be better, however. how much is the question. The English game and its money is creating a vortex in football. All monies for tv rights, clubs, players signings/ wages, fans entry and merchandise should be capped and regulated worldwide. Its the only way fairness and competition will come back into the game.
4.) 01 Sep 2016 12:41:30
Moral outrage is borne out of the numbers.
People jump up and down at bankers, politicians etc earning big bucks (very small compared to EPL footballers) but don't have an issue with moodie Rooney earning £1m every month?
5.) 01 Sep 2016 11:46:14
It's just the same money being recycled, your lucky if there was 400m fresh being spent. They love to inflate and market themselves like that, anything to get people to talk about them. We were notorious for outspending everyone so if you want to apply that then your discrediting your own club. Majority of there money goes to wages. That's why I can't understand people going mental of Leicester winning the league, I don't know any other team of that calibre that can afford 200k a week wages, yet all you here is "they only spent 20m" or whatever there still massive wage spenders. We allow England to market themselves and to spend themselves into the billions by buy watching there games, buying there strips talking about there garbage football. This has in turn forced the other members of the top leagues to get four teams into the champions league so they can try to compete with them. I walk about and all I see is foreign strips and its embarrassing.
6.) 01 Sep 2016 11:47:34
And so little is said because ££££ in taxes and exposure of the country in general. West Minister is bias to England and always will be.
7.) 01 Sep 2016 13:27:46
rec bob I don't understand your comment mate! its just like us because we have a bigger fan base its got nothing to do with that if that was the case then most of the English clubs would have a bigger fan base than us which they don't but they can still spend 35 million on bang average players!
its just nonsense!
8.) 01 Sep 2016 16:51:37
We have more fans willing to pay money to watch us play than the other Scottish teams and that's why we have dominated Scottish Football. More people are willing to pay to watch the EPL (worldwide on Sky) than any other league and that is why they dominate the transfer market. Simples. It's just different markets, same rules apply.
9.) 01 Sep 2016 18:01:29
Just my opinion Bears but with the right coach there ain't a huge difference between a 1-2m player and one at 250k-500k.
10.) 01 Sep 2016 14:03:08
There is no way that the English League can sustain this type of spending indefinitely. All that it will take is for a few Arabs/ Americans/ Far Easterners to lose interest and walk away and/ or SKY to pull the plug and the whole of English football would dissolve overnight. I am not saying that it will happen any time soon but all good things come to an end, we as a club should be brutally aware of that above all others.
England may have a strong (but not the strongest) League but their National team have suffered enormously because of it. Joe Hart on loan to Torino! Really?
To me that epitomises everything that is wrong with English football.
If their National keeper can't get a game in the league then the rest may as well call it a day.
The poster who said that the EPL is destroying Scottish Football must have made a typo and meant SPL. Quite how one league flourishing destroys another doesn't make sense.
Scottish football has destroyed itself through gross mismanagement, years of neglect, lack of funding and ultimately a product that nobody wants to watch be it on tv or live.
We should be grateful of whatever deal SKY, BT or BBC give us because in my opinion it is a donation not sponsorship.
26 Aug 2016 23:02:42
Sorry to say it but some of you guys on here are a disgrace and an embarrassment to the club you supposedly support.
One minute everything is rosy, then everything is shit!
How many new players do we have?
How long have we been away from the top league?
We don't have £20m to spend so this year was always going to be a steep learning curve.
The "good day" supporters should be embarrased and get a life - opinions are welcome but all of this negativity about the team, the players, the board and the manager is sooooo dull.
Get a grip or GTF.
1.) 27 Aug 2016 00:51:27
Totally agree. Worst fans on the planet. 4 games in. Calling for heads. You told me this time last year we would've had Barton kranjcar etc I would've laughed at you.
2.) 27 Aug 2016 08:06:44
Sorry but we're no different to any other fans when ther team isn't doing well. do agree tho that some people take it to far like "sacked by xmas" comments but every1s entitled to vent the frustration.
12 Jul 2016 21:08:07
Impudent chaps from Gibraltar have made Celtic look like Macaques.
Think they would struggle to get out of SPFL 2 on this performance.
They will of course get their act together so it will be important that we gel as a team ASAP.
1.) 12 Jul 2016 23:18:49
Worst result in British football history, end off.
12 Feb 2017 16:23:50
What a fantastic rumour that one is! Inside info?
11 Feb 2017 10:11:10
Which part of last nights dealings are you unhappy about?
Would you have preferred that the board keep the management team in place after they made it clear they wanted to move on?
Can't see how that would motivate a player and can't see how planning for our future would benefit from that.
DK and co did the right thing and showed the world exactly how MW viewed RFC. Now they need to delivery an even better prospect as manager even until the end of the season to get us back on track.
10 Feb 2017 22:00:42
Hold on a minute. Clintons campaign got hacked proving that if someone want to hack anything g there is a good chance that they will but because it happens to RFC the board must go?
Get a grip
10 Feb 2017 17:05:05
Strange but I also get the feeling that something is stirring behind the scenes - usual boardroom machinations that will not and should not be disclosed until there is something concrete to say.
I am expecting positive news but then I do tend to look at the positives
04 Feb 2017 16:02:56
How many changes did he actually make today? Just one or was it 2 or 3?
18 Feb 2017 21:59:39
Gor, the word you are thinking of is Nomad.
Get behind the club instead of inventing doomsday scenarios. DK made it perfectly clear where we stand with his statement last weekend. I hear that Berwick Rangers are happy to accept turncoat supporters of any other club. Just a thought?
17 Feb 2017 21:33:46
Yawn! Billy, most of our directors are significant shareholders. They are currently running the club WITH DK. They are not in the dark. if they were then their strong reputations would be in tatters. as you have said before, there a a few serious and well connected people on the board, if there was anything untoward or uncertain about plan A, B or C then they are as culpable as DK.
14 Feb 2017 10:47:14
RFC, what do you mean it's not about the manager, it's the system?
Surely you're not suggesting the someone imposed the system on the manager?
13 Feb 2017 19:45:43
Don't taint the club by calling them supporters. they are thugs and morons. Same with those who abused Keirnan last wee.
These guys do more damage to our clubs reputation that any of Th Ashley, Easdale, Greens and Whytes
12 Feb 2017 16:31:02
Why would you assume that? Absolute tosh!
