Wallace has to go, surprised he is not moving to Dundee, to join Miller, this window as partial makeweight for Kamara.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 00:38:10
He is not moving because his wages.

2.) 19 Jan 2019 08:57:40
Some of our supporters have short memories. Why does lee wallace HAVE to go? He loves our club and is still imo at least the 2nd best left back we have at rangers! He's been a very loyal servant to us, but that's not and should never be, the main reason, you keep any player at ibrox. The main reason wallace should stay at ibrox, is because he's a good left back and him and barisic, are our 2 best and actually natural, left backs! Its lee wallace's perogative to stay at rangers, until the end of the season, if he so wishes! Give our former captain some support and respect, for god's sake!

3.) 19 Jan 2019 09:12:43
Wallace deserves respect the guy has been through it with us. even to the detriment of his own career.

4.) 19 Jan 2019 09:32:19
No chance coops, halliday a much better bet at left back when barisic isn't fit. Wallace is done, stop playing the loyalty card. His wife didn't want to go to England and nobody in Scotland eould have matched his wages or he wouldn't have stayed, don't be kidded.

5.) 19 Jan 2019 10:29:41
Yea I tend to agree frustrated . it’s all about the wages for Wallace and prob always has been . wouldn’t have got a better deal anywhere else at any time . sayingvthat it’s not a bad thing and is quite normal and acceptable. but if he went anywhere we would most likely have to pick up half his wadge that’s why Stevie chooses to keep I would imagine. He’s better cover for that money.

6.) 19 Jan 2019 10:34:02
Wallace to stay.

7.) 19 Jan 2019 11:02:23
Respect for staying but he's finished as a footballer.

Was slightly above average in his prime with us and has regressed badly.



13 Jan 2019 12:57:19
Anybody have any update on situation with Hardie. Seen him training with squad in Tenarife. Is he being loaned back to Livingstone for remainder of season?


1.) 13 Jan 2019 13:37:41
I think Gerrard took him away to have a proper look at him during the training camp. It is more than likely he will return to Livingston for the remainder of the season unless Gerrard plans in playing 2 up top then I imagine he would stay as our 4th choice striker,
Livingston boss stated a couple of days ago if he is being loaned back out they would want him back, I expect that he will return to them. Would be good for us aswell if he is scoring against the rest of the teams they play but ineligible against us as well as obviously continuing his development by playing.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 14:44:59
Makes sense for him to go back on loan for the remainder of the season.
I wouldn’t be surprised if with Hardie or Rossiter end up on loan at Dundee as part of Kamara coming early.

3.) 13 Jan 2019 18:21:10
I'd put Hardie third choice ahead of Lafferty any day.

4.) 13 Jan 2019 19:56:19
I really haven't noticed how good a player Kamara is. The boy Greg Doc is Kamara any better than him? I thought Docherty would see his loan out and come back ready to fight for a place in squad for next season but it doesn't look like its going to turn out that way. Its a shame I had high hopes for the boy.

5.) 13 Jan 2019 19:53:45
Ahead of Lafferty? Absolute nonsense.



06 Jan 2019 21:29:29
Look for Coulibaly to respond positively in second half of season. Too much talk on here that his days are numbered with signing of Kamara. Watch Coulibaly go, will be even better than was at start of season before injury.




04 Jan 2019 16:22:22
Both Docherty and Hardie will remain on loan for remainder of season. SG delighted with game time, goals and assists of Docherty and wants him to play 40 plus games on loan and return in the summer. SG impressed by recent game time and goals scored by Hardie after returning from injury. Hardie will continue to be monitored and if continues progress of last month will return to Ibrox and be offered new contact at end of season.


1.) 04 Jan 2019 17:54:27
That is of course if he doesn't sign a pre contract with someone else.



31 Dec 2018 19:38:43
Ed01. You are a loyal Liverpool supporter with deep knowledge of all players at the club. Which player (s) if any do you believe we will be taking on loan in January form your club.

Happy new year.


{Ed001's Note - I am not convinced any will be joining, depends on other interest. If a team in the Championship or Prem wants them, they will end up there.}

1.) 31 Dec 2018 21:29:33
Edoo1, You have said it in the past you don’t really watch Rangers so sometimes I really wonder how much you do know about our wonderful club and how big a club we actually are. Your argument will always be down to money and not the fact we play in front of 50k every second week and that would gain invaluable experience for the Liverpool youngsters. Although you did send Ejaria up to play for us and he was simply not good enough! 🇬🇧
Happy New Year.

{Ed001's Note - it is as much about the players going out on loan being able to report back to Melwood once a week or so. The ones you got were not ones that are seen as having a future at the club in Kent and Ejaria. Kent is way behind the likes of Wilson, who went to Derby, that is why he was allowed to join Rangers. And you know Ejaria is nowhere near good enough. There are not a lot of players up for loan this January from Liverpool. It really doesn't matter what I know about Rangers, I know what Liverpool want to do with them and it is not send them up to play in the SPFL on plastic pitches.}

2.) 31 Dec 2018 21:39:29

It’s Hogmanay, let’s assume we could attract one of your players not currently featuring In the Liverpool first team squad, which players do you think SG would be interested in.

{Ed001's Note - you would be welcome to Clyne if it wasn't for injuries giving him a few games lately. You lot are always moaning about Tavernier on here so maybe you need a new right back.

Other than that, possibly Juanma, left back/centre back who is good on the ball.}

3.) 01 Jan 2019 07:03:57
Answer me this then ed ( although again you will prob not post ) but if Ejaria and Kent are not good enough for Liverpool why give them long term contracts? That seems a bit silly to me and seems like something we would do ie Pena and his pal . can’t even mind his name noo ha.

{Ed001's Note - it is the done thing now to do so with players to maximise the profit when sold. Chelsea have been doing it for years, which has made them a very tidy profit and LFC are amongst a number trying to copy the business model. Personally I think it is a mistake and would rather the club concentrated on just getting the best team on the pitch, but it is not up to me.}

Very Best Wishes to Fernando Ricksen in the next stage of his fight. He is a true Rangers Legend and sure he is following our fortunes with great interest.


1.) 13 Jan 2019 15:11:21
Love Fernando wish there was a cure for him and all others with this illness.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 15:13:02
Here here bankie, i echo every word of your post! Keep fighting fernando and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family! God bless!

3.) 13 Jan 2019 15:25:47
I think everyone in football will be thinking the same about fernando what a true fighter he is all the best keep on fighting👊👊.

4.) 13 Jan 2019 16:02:37
Some lovely words from you guys. Life can be so cruel. My thoughts and prayers are with you Fernando.

5.) 13 Jan 2019 19:02:01
Couldn’t agree more lads, hopefully we can dedicate some silverware to Fernando this season, will always be hero to us!

6.) 14 Jan 2019 15:25:57
As I've said before Broamloan Rd stand should be named after Fernando Ricksen.

7.) 15 Jan 2019 18:01:07
Some arse disagreeing! Unbelievable! How low can it get?



12 Jan 2019 17:55:46
Let's be honest and totally objective, Celtic remain odds on favourites to win the league (check odds at bookies) . We have a chance but slightly concerned too many on here and players getting carried away after result on 29th.


1.) 12 Jan 2019 18:31:11
What a negative post. i'd prefer to be positive and firmly believe we will win the league this season. Celtic are starting to feel the heat and they don't like it. With our new signing we can only get better. So let's start believing. Plus I've got a tenner on us at 9/ 1.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 19:05:36
A would agree 100% goalie let's get behind our team. Aye so what we might be getting carried away and so we should that lot are rubbishting themselves so let's go!

3.) 12 Jan 2019 18:23:22
With their high wage bill and dominance over the last couple of seasons they should be favourites!
But Broony's legs have gone, the Thumb is MIA and with Tierney now injured the tide has turned. Throw in our January recruitment compared to them and we've strengthened the squad whereas they have only added numbers.

4.) 12 Jan 2019 19:19:20
I've also bet rangers at 9/ 1 goalie!
Regarding bankie, its just a typical post from him goalie! I wouldn't pay much attention to the post!

5.) 12 Jan 2019 19:20:41
Only stating the obvious. Every time this season when we get into a great position we have let ourselves down. Could be down to combination of complacency and false expectations. 2 weeks after beatings the Tim’s too many continue to be soaking it up including most worryingly some of the players.

6.) 12 Jan 2019 19:29:22
I think it’s them that are getting carried away constantly abusing our Alfie on the pitch in the street in the media and now at the training camp in Tenerife they lose one goal and one game and they go full tonto well a hope the wee loan Ranger Defoe comes to his aid and bangs the goals in for 55 they know the wee mans a player and they are trying to drive him out of Scotland absolutely shocking as mertin would say what they are doing to this boy they are trying to bully him but from what i saw its their defence that got bullied big time!

7.) 12 Jan 2019 19:39:08
Bankie please explain "your only stating the obvious "? Rangers are building momentum and confidence . We now have a great management team with great players. I really don't understand your negative views. You actually sound like a Celtic fan!

8.) 12 Jan 2019 19:59:27
A think you might be right goalie Clydebank is full of them lol.

9.) 12 Jan 2019 20:07:45
Goalie. Think we have been top of the league 2 or 3 times this season and have got carried away and suffered as a consequence. For example I now see Halliday commenting about significance of his tackle at start of the Tim’s game and Arfield taking further joy at his celebrations, to name just a few. Over the years I have seen this type of behaviour and attitude many times and it usually does not end well. Let’s be honest, as good as we were on the 29th, The Tim’s were rubbish and not competitive. Only a fool celebrates when nothing has been won.

10.) 12 Jan 2019 20:51:45
We are in the best position we have been for years we deserve to be excited who wouldn’t be? In all truth we should be away and gone the amount of daft points we have dropped away from last minute goals Aberdeen and Motherwell Dundee playing against 10men 2 points dropped. Livingston deserved to beat us that 100% and it will be tough again on the 27th at Livingston. Draw at home to killie lose to Aberdeen. Hibs home and away 2 games we should most definitely had won especially at there place.

11.) 12 Jan 2019 20:57:22
Bankie a get the point being quiet untill it's over but we've got the momentum now and we've got the so called monkey off the back by beating them the tide is changing and they are rubbishting there pants. Our new signings ie Defoe and Davis have got the experience to stop us losing these games and get us over the line now. We need to stop these tatties wining the title and a think we are going for it!

12.) 12 Jan 2019 21:20:18
I'm convinced bankie is a celtic fan. The absolute guff he comes out with, he must be a celtic supporter!
Own up bankie, your cover is blown my friend!

13.) 12 Jan 2019 21:26:11
Guys we dropped 12 points in December.

14.) 12 Jan 2019 21:59:12
Look at the positive sign we are sitting joint top still albeit they have a game in hand but they still need to try and win that game! We can only try and if we win it we win it as the old saying goes take it a game at a time! Morelos and Defoe partnership sounds one helluva prospect though! Davis is Davis just a top player.

15.) 12 Jan 2019 22:01:36
Celtic fan alright coop! remember a few weeks ago he was stating you couldn’t buy any rangers stuff online.

16.) 12 Jan 2019 23:33:06
Aye clydebank is full of them lads, mostly all my mates are and I'm loving the panic and fear in them these days😉.

17.) 12 Jan 2019 23:54:08
Bankie, you sound like a right good laugh mate! Do you ever say anything positive? Enjoy Rangers, enjoy life, have a beer, pull a girl, get rid of all that frustration!

18.) 13 Jan 2019 01:02:29
Win all our games and draw with them at the piggery and take the league on goal differance would do me my friends.

19.) 13 Jan 2019 08:48:05
Wake up William, wake up.

20.) 13 Jan 2019 14:49:34
Tinman I know what you mean about Clydebank, I live there. We are now very much in the minority. Remember there is a helluva lot of people of Southern Irish descent in clydebank. But like a good Ger I just grin and bear it, and wind them up as much as possible. ONWARDS AND UPWARDS.

21.) 13 Jan 2019 14:57:02
Celtic have signed no one that will improve their starting 11 and their starting 11 is there to be had. The 29th proved that they can't cope with pressure. 👍.

22.) 13 Jan 2019 16:11:55
Coldo, Celtic are folding, Brendan has took them as far as he could. I think there is a bit of friction between Brenda and the board, i think he will be offski at the end off the season. Rangers are getting their act together which has been a long time coming. We will win the league this year. Good times lie ahead.



08 Jan 2019 09:08:22
Really enciuraged by noise coming from the winter training camp. Davis and Defoe have arrived and great to see Dorrans and Murphy on location. 8 vital competitive matches between now and end of February including Aberdeen away.




06 Jan 2019 21:14:50
Don't really know academy boys too well but disappointed from what I can tell no one seems to be pushing for promotion to the right full back position in the first team squad. Recall watching on RTV the youngsters beating Celtic a couple of times over the last few years and we looked to have athletic and big lads at the back including Right Full back.


1.) 07 Jan 2019 09:50:54
Bankie, Jordan Houston is a very good rb.

2.) 07 Jan 2019 12:53:30
Jboy21, he is turning 19, surely by that age if good enough should be in and around 1st team squad. Picking on RB position because we lack genuine competition there and crying out for a good young one to make a claim. Hopefully you Jordan will figure in second half of season.



01 Jan 2019 14:22:23
Broonie guilty over the last 3 years of much worse than Morelos committed on Saturday and has been put down to gamesmanship and competitive antics.

A highlight for me on Saturday was the "contested" drop ball. Straight from Broonie's book of football antics.


1.) 01 Jan 2019 15:25:35
Afield was fantastic doing his wee war dance, candeias was great shoving broon out of The way, followed by a little flick of The boot, made my day.

Dorrans will return and if called on will play a significant part in second half of the season. Dorrans for the last 4 or 5 seasons has been injury prone and had limited game time. When we signed him this was well known and the then management decided to proceed with the signing.

Need to move conversation on from Shankland, not good enough and sends terrible message to our own young players. I wish Shankland well but it won’t be at Ibrox.
