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.

Overreaction by many on here as usual after yesterday's result.

Last time around we took Celtic by surprise - everyone expected we'd lose 7-0

This time we went into the match after a reasonable run and Celtic were well prepared. Given the difference in class the result was not unexpected but we had chances to at least level the score.

Our defence was reasonably solid for once but we have a lack of creativity and finishing.

Forget the doom and gloom, we are is a better place than 3 months ago and Pedro will know what we need

Next season our target should be 2nd (within 8 points) and a cup win.

3 or 4 signings plus the injured players back at full fitness and we will be ok.


1.) 24 Apr 2017 09:17:54
Reasonable way to look at it BR65. 👍

2.) 24 Apr 2017 09:23:29
We were second best everywhere but the way we gave the ball away so easily put ourselves under tremendous pressure needlessly was unacceptable. Better team won fair play to them.

3.) 24 Apr 2017 09:28:23
Most of us on here can accept that Celtic are better just now. Most of us could accept a defeat in the right manner, but yesterday was shocking! A totally inexcusable showing. No fight, desire or passion.

4.) 24 Apr 2017 09:59:55
I honestly think we need more than 3 or 4 signings just about the whole team are not up to it yesterday and our league position says it all

5.) 24 Apr 2017 10:28:30
bawbag2017, we can't afford a whole new team but look across the city 3-4 signings and they have transformed from the team we outplayed last season to a team that's hard to recognise.

its amazing the difference a few good players can make on the rest of the team

6.) 24 apr 2017 10:51:24
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

7.) 24 Apr 2017 12:12:23
I can assure you that Pedro won't be getting anymore than £3 or £4mill at best. Any funds will need to be put up by the current board. King is not going to do it. They need to repay £7mill this year already. So if Pedro gets £3 or £4 its £10 mill payback. let's get real, that money is never going to get repaid and next season more transfer funds will be required. A run in Europa as far as group stage is worth £7mill so that would pay off a lump of the loans but better players want more wages so it never sorts itself out. So someone needs deep pockets and won't expect the loan repaid. Rangers will be closer to Celtic next season finish second but that could be how it is for a few years yet.

8.) 24 Apr 2017 13:28:34
Johnnymac, have I missed something on the £7m loan that needs to be repaid this year?

My understanding is that the loans are all soft from current directors/ investors with no fixed repayment date or interest charged?

I thought that the intention was to roll these loans into equity as soon as we are able to issue new shares?

9.) 25 Apr 2017 00:36:11
Defence was solid? You having a laugh? The 1st goal a schoolboy team wouldn't lose. Trademark goal against us of long ball up park and ball in the net. How gk never even attempted a save from what was basically a pass into the net was shocking. 2nd goal?

Remember us losing a goal at ibrox few years back because mcgregor came running out his box and the greek guy scored. can't mind his name. That game mcgregor should never have came out. Sunday was different. Total lack of heart from keeper as he could have and should have got to ball before griffiths.



12 Mar 2017 16:41:19
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!

Would make a huge difference in terms of quality to our squad but some of you wouldn't touch him with a bargepole?

You guys need to get real and decide whether you support the club on not!

It's all fake news! Perfectly normal for almost every player to turn down the first offer.

It's a great way to encourage all the fans who are desperate to slag off the team on here!

Seems to me that based on early performances, Pedro will be able to improve Barrie and turn him into a better more consistent player who can be sold on in a few years for a decent sum.

In the meantime, just get behind the players and offer encouragement

I guess the lure of big bucks, financial security and the opportunity to learn from better players is hard to turn down at his age.

He could stay at Rangers then have a career ending injury next year

I've sad it before that a big part of of awful defence has been Warburtons insistence on playing out from the keeper no matter what.

We do not have technically gifted defenders who are comfortable with the ball at their feet under pressure meaning that mistakes were inevitable.

A more pragmatic approach taking into account the setrengths and weaknesses of the squad is what Pedro seems to have in mind in the short term

Bengy25, the result today tells you that some of the players are good enough!

You are clearly delusional if you cannot pick out any positives in a 3-0 win.

TOMUSA, EE o me that Aberdeen have done much better in the transfer market in recent years than we have. on the basis that you think we haven't spent enough you must have inside knowledge that Aberdeen have invested significantly more than us?

I would have thought its reflects more on the people making the decision on who to buy. Warburton in our case
