Just seen there's a high possibility of young billy gilmour getting a game on sunday. Thoughts?


1.) 10 Feb 2017 22:11:51
Dont think he's 16 yet

{Ed039's Note - you can play 15 year old as amateur players in the Scottish cup)



10 Jul 2016 14:47:32
High possibility that the striker is isaih Brown from Chelsea. What a capture that would be.


1.) 10 Jul 2016 14:57:45
CWoodLoyal mentioned Isaih Brown earlier this week.

That we were interested along with our main striker target.

His contract runs out in 2019, doubt it'd be a permanent move.

2.) 10 Jul 2016 15:14:00
The way Warburton is talking makes it suggest the striker is permanent, he's pointed out that he'll limit loan deals. Also very doubtful Wed step up the type of cash Chelsea would want for him.

Still thinking it'll be Frazier Campbell but won't be long to find out I'd imagine, says the deal should be done by the end of the week.

If it isn't you'd doubt it'd take another week to sort it out. Warburton wouldn't have said he hopes a striker is signed this week unless a deal was imminent.

3.) 10 Jul 2016 15:28:05
I really hope it ain't Frazier Campbell the guys done.

4.) 10 Jul 2016 16:19:18
Look at the boys stats he's not what we need.

5.) 10 Jul 2016 18:04:22
With all due respect JD90,who do you reckon we need regarding we play in scotland mate? If it was to be frazier campbell then so be it, he'd be a good enough signing imo, grant you he wouldn't be my own first choice but I still think he'd do well for us in scottish football, big named strikers with big transfer fees are out of our grasp some people need to get that through to their head, trust warbs he's terrific at picking up gems and improving and getting the best out of them.

6.) 10 Jul 2016 18:25:16
A main permanent striker with Izzy Brown on loan would be ideal and the likely outcome.

Doubt Warburton would change his mind, missing out on a permanent target, then settling for a loan, no matter how good he is. Even if he did come on loan it wouldn't be now, it'd be later in the window.

CwoodLoyal did say if we missed out on our permanent target we'd use the money for another permanent signing.

The Brown deal was on top of the other striker signing, not an alternative if A signing didn't work out. Brown isn't plan B.

7.) 10 Jul 2016 19:09:53
Frazier campbell would be a good signing imo.

8.) 10 Jul 2016 21:19:04
Don't think it's Frazier Campbell, warburton was saying he wanted to get a player under the radar without the other English clubs knowing so to me it sounds as if it's someone that English clubs value for example Isaiah brown a young talented English striker who English clubs are probably monitoring and also Frazier Campbell wouldn't go for a cheap price the guy is valued around 1.5 to 2 million pounds so I doubt we would purchase him. Isaiah brown Ticks all the boxes because he is a young player who doesn't get any game time for Chelsea he is also valued around 1 million pounds but if we keep are transactions with Chelsea quite we could pick him up for such as 800k but that is just my opinion from the research I have done.

9.) 10 Jul 2016 23:32:27
Thorn! Have you forgot what he said about Eustace? Signing was imminent? Football managers all tell little lies, I'm not saying he is, but he is capable.

10.) 11 Jul 2016 13:17:56
Bears just my opinion but if Warbs shells out any money it will be on a young strikers like Brown, any experienced strikers comin to Ibrox will be at end of contract same situation as Nico.



07 Jun 2016 17:43:30
Heard from a few people over the past week that rangers have shown a interest in Sam Winnall and a Bradley Dack. Don't know if there's any truth in this and in all honesty couldn't really tell you anything about these players apart from what you see on Google such as age etc. As players I know absolutely nothing about them.


1.) 07 Jun 2016 19:31:14
Would take Bradley Dack of Gillingham, looks by all account a decent player, 29 appearances last season with a return of 13 goals, I did meantion him in one of my previous post, however I have a feeling we have enough midfielders and may concentrate our efforts elsewhere.

2.) 07 Jun 2016 20:56:57

Maybe Zlatan's decided at the last minute to ditch the Dodgers of Soap eh 😁😁.

3.) 08 Jun 2016 06:52:26
Dack is a midfielder so that would be a no no, might prefer Nicky Ajose, better goal average than Sam Winall.



16 May 2016 07:02:53
Warburton flew to America for talks with kranjer, loving this right now the quality of players he are looking at/ linked with.


1.) 16 May 2016 08:13:51
Is he still any good tho?

2.) 16 May 2016 08:17:22
He's only 31 would still be a good signing imo, very clever in the number 10 role.

3.) 16 May 2016 09:29:02
I'm guessing MW is hedging his bets, he knows we won't get everyone we're going in for so he's keeping as many irons in the fire as possible.

If we get all the midfielders we're in for right now, we may have around half the midfielders Celtic have.

Niko Kranjcar would be another excellent signing though, really good quality player.

4.) 16 May 2016 09:34:11
Personally I'm a little underwhelmed by this one. Decent player but not getting any younger and is a bit of a journeyman. Also, I don't see his wages being cheap and we need to convince him to leave NY for Scotland. There are better alternatives on our doorstep imo.

5.) 16 May 2016 09:44:44
The likes of Barton and Kranjcar would be sensational signings for Rangers at this stage in our revival.

Let's not forget - that only 1-2 years ago, we had boys like Ian Black running about Ibrox thinking he was something. Not only that - we were being linked with recruiting players like Ali Crawford and Kevin McHattie when McCall was in charge.

We've come a long way in a short space of time - and to be linked with players of their calibre it can only be viewed as a huge positive in terms of what's going on in the background with King and co also.

6.) 16 May 2016 11:04:33
Is he any good though?

For the SPL or La Liga?
Make of that what you will!

7.) 16 May 2016 11:38:18
Kranjcar would be Good he was one of QPR's bright sparks during their relagated season and at 31 he can still offer us a lot I just worry about the players wages but if we get him he would be a good addition to the gers squad.

8.) 16 May 2016 08:29:15
Nico has always been a cracking player, he was amazing at Portsmouth and spurs. Only 31 aswell I reckon we'll get a good few years out of him if this deal does happen.

9.) 16 May 2016 13:46:01
Niko Kranjcar was a very very good technical player in the EPL and would be fantastic for us! I agree with the poster its great to see Rangers linked with this calibre of player again! WTP.



14 May 2016 20:29:11
Been told barton has signed. £15k p/ w plus bonuses (apparently) on a 3 year contract. Not bad for a team who is skint.


1.) 14 May 2016 20:42:08
Or reckless - depends on how you look at it.

2.) 14 May 2016 20:45:02
2 year I heard mate.

3.) 14 May 2016 20:51:19
Bankiebear. Who says we are skint?

4.) 14 May 2016 20:56:36
Would give me 2 years max. Not 3 already 33 and 34 come September.

5.) 14 May 2016 21:41:49
It's says he's close to signing a three year deal. on a few site online.

6.) 14 May 2016 22:11:24
Hardly reckless? 15k a week plus bonuses let's say that's around £1M per season, not a bad price to pay for the team that won the Championship's player of the season, especially on a free transfer.

Granted he can be a twat, if Warbs and Davie think he's a good fit then we should trust their judgement. Could be what we need a bit of experience in the middle of the field, just need to strengthen in the back four.

Rumour is that we have a kitty of £5M for transfers including wages so in Rossiter and Barton Warbs he's spent £1.75M, so will be looking forward to who he can secure with the rest!

7.) 14 May 2016 22:28:24
TPP, you're probably the only one of the knitting circle who doesn't feel the need to convince the others, or himself, that Rangers are dead every time you post, so with that in mind what is your opinion on Barton AS A PLAYER?

8.) 14 May 2016 22:44:59
The skint part was a bit or sarcasm.

9.) 14 May 2016 22:54:56
@ Barcabear,

Main drawback with Barton is that his wage over 2 years is dead money. Region of 1.75 million. (no sell on value)

Rossiter on the otherhand (reportedly 10k a week) could have massive sell on value and is the way forward for us at this time imo.

10.) 14 May 2016 23:01:50
He won Burleys player of the season and was in the Championship team of the year! Andre Gray won Championship player of season.

11.) 14 May 2016 23:04:25
Strange considering in the same team.

12.) 14 May 2016 23:19:53
B4RC4BE4R- It was a direct response to Bankiebear. I have zero clue as to Rangers' finances.

Hugh- As a player, I think he's decent. He was Burnley's POTY and considering they won the Championship, that's no mean feat. He played really well this year whenever I watched Burnley. They are set up slightly different to you and (assuming MW plays a same style next year - and all the evidence suggests he will) that would be my one concern. He slows down the play quite a bit. I'm not sure how that will suit your style. That said, he is a decent player and at SPFL level -- assuming it's not too quick for him -- he could be a quality signing.

13.) 14 May 2016 23:48:55
We ain't skint lol :) ) just wait til the Retail part of the club is going strong again aswell, we'll be in such a strong position, can't wait for next season already, mon the Teddy Bears.

14.) 14 May 2016 22:51:23
Reason we can afford the higher wages is we are now back in the top league, that'll increase income by 5 million a year and because if that the board have allowed a 40% increases on the wage budget.

15.) 14 May 2016 23:48:23
Surprised MW in for him as he has always said they look at every aspect of a player before signing him.
Can't see many positives in Barton's CV?




Bankiebear's banter posts with other poster's replies to Bankiebear's banter posts


24 Apr 2018 21:17:17
Abel hernandez fron hull striker, diego reyes from porto centre back and jonathan bamba from st etienne winger all available on a free would love it if rangers could lure all three in along with arfield and mccarthur that would shake them and show we mean serious business without spending money but maybe a decent bit on contracts.
Would also like to see big bruno been kept in some sort of coaching role what do use think?


1.) 24 Apr 2018 22:29:36
Share some of what your smoking lad

2.) 25 Apr 2018 06:58:51
Aye people said the exact same thing a couple of years back when i said about moussa dembele been available and we should go for him and was told there was no chance we would ever get a player like that when he haf better offers in england and we seen where he ended up

3.) 25 Apr 2018 07:24:04
To be fair we didn’t get him did we?

4.) 25 Apr 2018 07:33:16
But my point is people were saying there was no chancr of him coming to scotland because ' arsenal tottenham and psg are chasing him and they would require £12m compensation' we seen how that turned out

5.) 25 Apr 2018 07:35:04
Also i never said we were after him i said i vasically said i would love for them to sign basically a wishlist which would show intent

6.) 25 Apr 2018 08:12:05
these guys might come (and use Scottish clubs as a stepping stone) if there was the chance of them playing in Champions League so they can show their talents in the big games. Our Mickey Mouse League would not be enough on its own. That is why Celtic are able to attract them and sell them on.



03 Jan 2017 10:06:18
Henri lansbury out of contract in the summer. Would be a great signing if we were to get him on a pre contract.


1.) 03 Jan 2017 10:17:46
you are either still drunk from new year or deluded we are not going to get henry lansbury the guy is to good for us. he will more likely end up at derby or even a premiership team. until we get fresh investment from somewhere and regular european football we are not going to attract quality players and that is fact.

2.) 03 Jan 2017 12:17:18
People said the same thing about sinclair to them just saying. Try be a bit more optimistic.

3.) 03 Jan 2017 14:12:23
bankiebear they are in the champions league and have a much more settled situation than us and were guarenteed to be in europe at the end of this season which we are not i am optimistic like everyone else but i am also realistic.

4.) 03 Jan 2017 16:49:51
Some people don't read the full site. This was most recently posted no more than 48 hours ago mate.

5.) 03 Jan 2017 17:50:02
Lansbury would be ideal but think he's been linked with watford and derby and that's just for starts.

6.) 04 Jan 2017 10:48:25
Try reading bankiebear's post jamesreilly09! All he said was henri lansbury would be a great signing if we could get him! I totally agree with bankiebear, as lansbury would be a superb signing, IF we could get him! He's the type of goalscoring midfielder we're crying out for!



26 Dec 2016 19:01:00
Would i be right in saying alan judge is out of contract in january? If so does anyone think MW would try his luck there.


1.) 26 Dec 2016 19:10:14
Scratch this post forgot all about his comments not so long ago about being killed if he signed for us.

2.) 27 Dec 2016 08:58:17
He's not very good either.



25 Jun 2016 13:18:29
Was having a snoop about that transfermarket website looking at strikers of decent age and who are out of contract etc. and found 4 who I would like but with stats and that there is 2 I was really impressed with. 2 of them are moussa Dembele and ibrahima blade as I posted earlier as a reply to someone and the 2 I was really impressed with and would love to see us go for is ogulcan caglayan and sardar azmoun.


1.) 25 Jun 2016 13:38:36
Bankiebear if you've won the lottery and willing to give the club some of your winnings then fine, otherwise forget it.

2.) 25 Jun 2016 14:05:08
All 4 are free agents and wouldn't command a great deal of money except maybe balde.

3.) 25 Jun 2016 14:30:45
Fulham would require compo for Demble and quoted 10m to Spurs when they approached in January.

Balde was mentioned before but the chances of him get time a work permit are slim to the point of anorexia, that's from his agent. No chance of a work permit for an Iranian either.

4.) 25 Jun 2016 15:02:00
Celtic are reported to be in talks for Dembele and £500,000 was the fee written in that particular story.

5.) 25 Jun 2016 15:08:09
Dembele has been linked with arsenal spurs and psg lol.

6.) 25 Jun 2016 15:09:28
Only 2 are out of contract this year Dembele and Balde the other 2 are 2017 and 2019.

7.) 25 Jun 2016 16:45:21
Dembele would be a nominal cross boarder development fee so 500 grand sounds about right . unfortunately some of the big boys down south want him.



16 Jun 2016 07:14:15
Kozicak GK, Durica CB out of contract, curtis Nelson CB out of contract, Robson kanu ST out of contract and bradshaw ST. If we got these players in I would be over the moon obviously would more than likely need a couple more, back up for LB and RB. Is there any realistic targets that people would like to see rangers going for?


1.) 16 Jun 2016 08:00:41
Clint hill plays left back as well.

2.) 16 Jun 2016 08:57:49
Bankiebear slovakia GK Kozacik still under contract till 2017 with FC Viktoria Plezen. Would definately like MW to buy him, market value is 1million.

3.) 16 Jun 2016 09:14:41
5 player wishlist I like it.

4.) 16 Jun 2016 09:22:47
Reading up on another Slovakia squad player at euro 2016. Norbert Gyomber is 23 plays for AS Roma who finished 3rd in Seria A. Didn't play many games 2015/ 16 due to fractured toe. Young guy we can progress for the future. Market value on his profile page is €700,000.

2/ 5 to move to rangers and loan deals DO count. From 7/ 2 to 2/ 5 could be something but then again ibrahimovic went from 80/ 1 to 7/ 2 to sign for celtic and we've seen how that's went. So far.

He was still professional enough to turn up and play they have a player who's had a bid in for him who point blank refused to play, sure it was tarkowski.
