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.
4.) 24 Mar 2017 12:05:55
Doesn't take much does it? You should try meditating or yoga
5.) 24 Mar 2017 11:56:00
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.

Today simply highlighted that there were some pretty serious issues behind closed doors when MW was in charge.
The passion, workrate, organisation and discipline shown by the same group of players was immense compared to the last 10 games under MW.
Marty has shown that there are players who have the potential do well for us providing we strengthen in a few key positions.
Now it's the time of the real fans to show their colours. no more negative gobshite until PC has had a good run to be judged on.
1.) 12 Mar 2017 17:05:49
Let me start by saying I don't rate Murty at all, but that just shows how bad it was under Warburton.
Well done today guys and a prediction from me Mark Warburton will never get a serious job in football.
2.) 12 Mar 2017 17:16:21
Yous were lucky today as we were having an off day. don't forget that
3.) 12 Mar 2017 17:30:01
@DN30 - is ' off day ' the new Always Cheated, Never Defeated battlecry for a disappointed Celtic fan?
4.) 12 Mar 2017 17:36:44
Sorry DN30 yes you did not play that well but no we were not lucky except maybe that Madden was unsighted for Hill's tackle on Griffiths. Indeed you were lucky you have a really good keeper and that we don't have a clinical finisher in Waghorn otherwise your"off day" would have ended in defeat.
5.) 12 Mar 2017 17:43:09
I suppose using DN's logic, Man City reserves must've had an off day in CL?
6.) 12 Mar 2017 17:50:17
lets not get carried away with today's draw as we are still miles behind celtic. Rangers need a drastic overhaul with heavy investment in the coming years. As much as i enjoyed todays result let's not be deluded about the enormity of the task ahead and credit to Murty with the way he has handled himself in the media during his spell in charge.
7.) 12 Mar 2017 21:21:30
You were lucky you didn't lose don't forget that. Maybe it shows you ain't that great.
8.) 12 Mar 2017 21:23:12
You did have an off day but its because we made you have an off day. that's why you didn't take 3 points. our interim / u20 coach tactically out done your gaffer.
9.) 12 Mar 2017 23:17:57
Dn lucky? I am struggling to think of our keeper making a save. Yours had several. Me thinks you just a tad ashamed.
24 Feb 2017 20:56:47
I even for a change. Dodoo and garner on for waggy and toral.
1.) 24 Feb 2017 21:03:14
Is he still getting advice from Warburton?
10 Feb 2017 23:02:47
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.
1.) 10 Feb 2017 23:37:37
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.
08 Feb 2017 21:35:25
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!
01 Sep 2016 11:34:21
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.
25 Mar 2017 17:35:09
I didn't think the role for a local guy was so much about coaching as a link with the players and knowledge of the league.
Pedro has his own coaching team so it is more about integration than coaching skills.
24 Mar 2017 09:16:29
Should read DK, not KK!
20 Mar 2017 09:30:19
Agree about the lad but you are off your heads if you thing it really is down to the board whether or not he would sign!
Based on promise, he could get £40k per week in the EPL. do you really thing we could justify anything like that in Scotland?
19 Mar 2017 15:08:04
I don't see why the fans have to be informed about this until a new deal has been signed.
18 Mar 2017 12:55:35
The main reason he has been apppointed is because the board think he can do a really good job!
The rest is pish
25 Mar 2017 09:13:17
Gor, why the intense dislike of DK (David King just to be clear! )?
You rubbish most things about the way he is running the club, disbelieve any statement and yet he is doing exactly what he said he would.
I'm sure that your GP (doctor) will prescribe happy pills if you describe your symptoms!
21 Mar 2017 09:33:42
Too many deluded people on here.
King is bad, waghorn is bad
We should be in the champions league soon
Get real and stay off the pills. We are where we are and there is no magic trick that will transform us overnight. We have another 2 seasons before we can realistically challenge Celtic unless Brenda leaves and he is replaced with a Dalia.
It's all very well being ambitious but it has to be based in this world
20 Mar 2017 20:32:20
So you've just sold 10 regulars from the team?
Continuity clearly means nothing to you - dump the lots and try our luck with another bunch?
19 Mar 2017 19:44:58
Believe99, your post makes me thankful that you have nothing to do with the running of our club- delusional dreamer it says for me!
18 Mar 2017 15:37:17
That's because we have a new manager who will want to make his own judgments on players and formations rather than take advice from the fantasy managers on here
