With Ryan Jack out for another 2 matches does anyone know if Dorrans is ready to return to first team action?


1.) 11 Dec 2017 20:28:39
Dorrans isn't exactly setting heather on fire but we've none any better than him

2.) 12 Dec 2017 07:54:00
Murty was saying at his press conference on Friday that Dorrans and Rossiter were both back at their specialists this week and doesn’t know when either will be back.

3.) 12 Dec 2017 07:59:14
Is he fit for Hibs on Wednesday?

4.) 12 Dec 2017 08:01:57
Media said at the weekend that a specialist was looking at him and Rossiter so I guess he's not ready yet.

5.) 12 Dec 2017 10:53:11
Dorran's timeframe is still not yet known. Quite simply we could be talking months here.

Great reports on young Ryan Hardie and Robby McCrorie out on loan. Hardie scored 2 goals against leaders St Mirren to take his total to 5 in 5. Young McCorie man of the match for Berwick on saturday. Expect young McCorie to be joining his brother in first team squad next season together with Hardie.


1.) 19 Feb 2018 18:32:34
About time for Hardie!

2.) 19 Feb 2018 18:48:47
hardie will have to be given a new contract first as present one runs out in summer

3.) 19 Feb 2018 23:00:28
Hardie has had his chance under 3 managers and they did not rate him. I wish the boy luck but can't see him in our plans going forward. He is at his level now.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 08:46:55
Think hardie should definitely be given contract. In the past we have let a young striker leave in Ross mcormack and he went on to do pretty well. Keep him. Watched the juventus doc on Netflix, the passion and love the players have for the club is to be admired. All clubs need that. Hopefully with some rangers fans back in team we can get Ibrox back as a fortress and stop accepting 2nd best. Because its not acceptable for our great club.

5.) 20 Feb 2018 13:15:55
Hardie looks like a player to be fair and if u haven't seen him play don't Judge Hi. He Needs Game Time And He Would Be worth Money But He needs To Be Loaned Out Again For Firsg Team Football But Has to Be At A Better Level

6.) 20 Feb 2018 15:16:28
There is development in him yet. To write him off at 20 would be absurd.

If Spurs had did the same they would never have the free scoring Harry Kane playing for them now.
He was 20 before really breaking into the team, only a few odd appearances before (similar to Hardie) .
He doesn't have a great record from his loan spells. Also, previous managers had not deemed him good enough yet.

So give the lad a chance. I think there might still be a player there. And if it didn't work out to be, then it's not been a costly exercise to find out



18 Feb 2018 22:15:49
Barry McKay dropped and no longer included in the match squad at Forrest. What's the betting will return to SPL club in the summer? Predict Hearts make a move.


1.) 19 Feb 2018 09:04:42
his attitude let him down he has all the talent in the world but you need more

2.) 19 Feb 2018 09:55:44
thinks he is better than what he is, you only need say boo then he hides

3.) 19 Feb 2018 12:51:54
The boys got it all but his confidence has been knocked with Murphy and young Middleton looking like a gem where would he fit into this team?



16 Feb 2018 16:21:06
Anybody have any update on fitness of Dorrans, Jack and McCorie and when likely to be available for selection.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 21:00:48
Ross McCrorie is being assessed monday and the club are hopeful he'll be cleared to start training again.

Dorrans is looking at a return at the end of March-start of April.

Ryan Jack is out for rest of season and could miss the start of pre season.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 22:09:28
Jack will likely be out for the season. Dozza is on schedule which I think is about 6 weeks or so. McCrorie will be assessed on Monday, hopefully a few weeks at most till he returns.



02 Feb 2018 12:17:59
See Barry Ferguson continues to demonstrate why he was shown the door by Sir Walter, failed in management at Clyde and was overlooked for the Assistant position at the Gers.

I don't doubt he has an affection fior the club but like Sutton he is now about building his own personal brand and even if the club suffers as a consequence he is more than up for it.


1.) 02 Feb 2018 17:35:11
Ferguson used to b a legend to many of us but his comments over the last few months av been a disgrace can't stand the we rat any more

2.) 02 Feb 2018 17:54:57
Said for a long time how much of a fud he is. Good player on the pitch and wore his heart on his sleeve. But off the pitch was a disgrace to club and country!

3.) 02 Feb 2018 20:28:03
Absolute joke him coming out with that. Our "rangers men" should be talking our players up, wanting them to either stay at the club and prosper or leave only when our asking price has been met! I for one am impressed with the board this January. Good incomings and smart with loan-to-buy deals, and keeping our star man until summer when we could be selling the league's top goalscorer for £10M+.

4.) 02 Feb 2018 20:34:07
barry should be in the door in some capacity he has been a true blue all his life and to get money he now writes what his employer wants him to something he wouldn't have to do if he was given maybe a youth assistant coach position or something.

make him a ball boy he would run to ibrox.

5.) 02 Feb 2018 20:52:23
Couldn't agree more zikos

6.) 03 Feb 2018 08:21:52
we are all rangers supporters don't mean we should get a job and he doesn't need to say some of the stuff he does just to get wage, was a good player.



13 Jan 2018 20:15:11
Anybody know why Ryan Hardie not given a run out in Florida?


1.) 13 Jan 2018 20:36:46
Fair point. Something tells me he's never going to get a chance. Sorry DOIGER.

2.) 13 Jan 2018 20:58:35
I heard ryan hardie is going on loan to hamilton accies as part of the deal with us signing greg docherty!

3.) 13 Jan 2018 21:16:14
I heard something very similar. didn't know it was Hardie though.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 22:07:32
Funnily enough I was thinking it might do Barjonas good to go to Accies for the rest of the season!

5.) 13 Jan 2018 22:54:05
Commonsense, i actually heard that the player we were originally loaning to hamilton accies, as part of the greg docherty deal, was young jamie barjonas! I then heard there was a change of thought and that it was indeed ryan hardie, who was likely going on loan to them!

6.) 13 Jan 2018 23:32:20
Aye he’s not good enough

7.) 13 Jan 2018 23:56:26
Would be a good move for hardie, win win for us if that's true coop.

8.) 14 Jan 2018 00:07:39
Thanks guys, if true hope he only goes to Hamilton on loan and not on permanent part exchange for the boy Docherty.

Martin and Bates by far best option currently and for remainder of season. Martin did no have his best game at Hamilton but think the pitch contributed to that. Longer term Bates and McClorie the best partnership available.

The boy Bates is a young McLeish and together with McCorie can develop and form a formidable central defensive partnership for years to come. Alves is a lovely guy but is way past his best and at this stage in his career does not have the physicality or motivation to perform for us consistently at a high level. Great though that he is passing on advice to all of the young centre backs including Cordoso.

Great to see development and breakthrough if Bates this season. Did you see how disappointed he was when missed header and goal scoring opportunity. Priceless! Just watch how he converts and celebrates the next chafe he gets.

ArthurD, agreed should be higher than £15 million.

If he said “nae bother” that’s a good sign although would have preferred “nae bother wee (big) man”.

He will sign improved 4 year and has been told we will develop a pathway for him to move to EPL and Colombian international. In the pathway he will move to England for a substantial fee in summer 2019.

So looks like after the split we will have Kilmarnock and Hearts at home, with Celtic, Aberdeen and Hibs away.

20 Feb 2018 10:28:49
ArthurD, agree with you on this one. Celtic have too much quality and 9 points too big a gap to bridge at this stage. We would need to take maximum points from remaining 11 games and don’t think any of us can see that happen particularly with our erratic Home form and conceding goals for fun.

Don’t think Celtic woukd visit Ibrox after the split, we will go there? Not exactly sure how Home/ away decided after the split, based on where pre-split games payed and assuming top 6 is as you say think we will be playing most of post split games away from Ibrox. Perhaps someone can shed some light?
