No point posting anything about the "game' yesterday -Suffice to say the only way is up!

Pedro must grab the tiger by the tail and rebuild the team - top to bottom.

Toral and Hyndman will return to their clubs

Kierrnan will never play for Rangers again

Time to move on Waggy and Garner

Tav sold to Forrest

Flog Barry ( the wean) McKay
Senderos, Forrester, MOH out

This needs to be done and new players brought in before end of May - with Europa league qualifiers on horizon

Huge dilema for board - no way will they sell 40000 season tickets to watch this squad without radical change

Not sure the board has appetite for further investment - where will funds come from?

Second or third and a wee cup run. don't think so! Its not good enough

And Pedro needs to wisen up - and quick!

dont agree with letting barry go or forrester and tav was the best we had on the pitch yesterday and to rebuild an entire team cost too much we have to keep our best and let the likes of kiernan halliday and waggy and garner go and moh aswell other than that we nee some real quality to bring out the best in these other players as their game is being brought down a level playing with these other guys and not getting game time (forrester)

2.) 24 Apr 2017 14:31:18
We will not get a better right back than tav.

3.) 24 Apr 2017 15:09:01
The only players I would keep would be fod, tav, Wilson, McKay and the youngsters.

4.) 24 Apr 2017 23:34:56
First out the door should be Halliday, I've never seen just a pathetic excuse for a person that calls himself a Rangers Man. He gets bossed every time against Brown and his bunch. Sadly lacking in guile and guts and a disgrace to the jersey.

C'mon the Rangers! Belt it right intae them!
This is your chance to be immortal -
Something tells me Murty will pull this off!
First whistle- right in their faces:-)

1.) 10 Mar 2017 11:28:52
Our chances have just improved kiernan red card appeal is rejected. Time for wilson to step up to the plate. Last chance saloon as he has been poor all season. As for 30 million for Dembele. No chance Any decent player would score goals in Scotland as the standard is not good. The time is now for the rangers team to show some fight desire and heart which have been lacking for a long time

2.) 10 Mar 2017 12:32:59
Remind me what our goal difference is! With our 1.8 million pound striker

3.) 10 Mar 2017 13:14:39
Johnny, you must be fun at parties! Judge Garner next season, hopefully Pedro plays Garner to his strengths.

4.) 10 Mar 2017 16:15:36
Could be a long game on Sunday, there is a big diff playing them at Celtic park than ibrox, but you never know

5.) 10 Mar 2017 17:59:56
Onlyshow, Johnny G is one of them pal.

Had to pay Green's and fatboys legal costs for court proceedings today. Apparently we halted the action for some reason. Not be legally minded, not 100% what this means. just hate giving those purveyors of snake oil a penny of our cash!

1.) 02 Mar 2017 18:34:52
Rangers' lawyers withdrew their request for the production of more incriminating documents concerning Green, Fatley and co. but can go back to court again. Maybe Red Bull will come in and we can completely re-brand the club's shirts and logos and leave Fatley with nowhere to go! My god, Green, Whyte and the others were crooks!

2.) 02 Mar 2017 22:03:23
Why our legal team withdrew is anyone guess but by doing this they have cost us in having to pay the fees why bother request more information then withdrew it cause green ect would need more time to give the club the imformation surley the laywers no this would have happend so why request it if they didn't want to wait.



01 Mar 2017 09:00:07
Board need to ensure the next manager "sells season tickets" Alex Neil does not sell season tickets - Its well documented where his allegiances lie. If we are going down that route, may as well appoint Lemmon or Stubbs.
This is a dilema for the board, we need a quality manager, but don't have the funds to properly back him. Hopefully court case with Ashley goes in our favour - releases funds and we can move forward.

1.) 01 mar 2017 09:19:55
rangers managers job. great salary
fantastic facilities. chance to build something special.
must have expirence at top level
must have ambition to take club forward.

must not have supported celtic.

pathetic barcelona bear.

2.) 01 Mar 2017 09:12:36
"May as well appoint Lennon or Stubbs"? Please enlighten me.

3.) 01 Mar 2017 10:00:48
Ironically we could really do with a manager with Lennon's traits. Could you imagine he was appointed and the meltdown that would occur from the celtic lot? We've had players cross the divide before but never a manager.

4.) 01 Mar 2017 11:38:45
Why would you bother who they supported or played for? As soon as they put on a shirt or a blazer with the badge they are then a rangers employee

5.) 01 Mar 2017 12:55:20
Should Pedro Caixinha not be in the frame either. Turns out he used to be a talent spotter for Celtic.

6.) 01 Mar 2017 13:00:01
Barcabear your away with it. Neil would be a great appointment IMO, done brilliantly in scotland with hamilton and since then had a succesful first season at norwich to take them up.
Very much a 'players manager' which is what we need right now to get best out of what we have.

7.) 01 Mar 2017 15:06:25
@barcabear - its attitudes like yours that holds the club back. How can the club attract future investors when fans like yourself are stuck in the year 1690?
The next manager needs to be appointed on ABILITY!

8.) 01 Mar 2017 19:50:20
We need a quality manager, one that can seriously take on Rodgers. Unfortunately none of those that are allegedly on the short list inspire confidence. Macleish is yesterday's man, McInnes has failed at Aberdeen and appears happy to finish second, he has had every chance to overeatke Celtic when they had Delia and he failed consistently. We need a top quality manager that is a winner.

9.) 01 Mar 2017 17:42:48
i for one would like to say i agree that a celtic minded manager is not what i'd like either nor would i want alex neil even if he wasnt a hearts suporter and to say we are the only ones in the dark ages is just sill as Barcelona and madrid would never allow that to happen either and i can think of quite a fe more that wouldn't happen.

not when the hatred of the rival club is as strong as it is over here or spain or in turkey or a few eastern european clubs i would say tht hiring him would be a mistake

10.) 01 Mar 2017 19:36:08
We could worse than Martin O'Neil, although he appears to have turned down Leicester, and is unlikely to want anything to do with us, in our present state.
If the board have the cash, give the job to Big Eck and let him choose his staff, within reason and to an agreed budget. The important thing about the appointment is to get on with it.

11.) 02 Mar 2017 00:11:23
We don't want a Celtic minded person as it will dog there ability to get on and do the job. They would be hounded. Combined with the fact we would prefer one of our own who understand what Rangers are about MW was in coco land no affinity with the club or the fans.

A top drawer manager like FDB or RDB or Brian L as assistant
Think big and get the place bouncing again. If its a low key person next season will be no different to this one it will be low budget and freebies.

Been a lot of names flying around for our manager/ coach role. I wanted to look at identifying the correct candidate in another way. Instead of look at the man -look at the desired attributes. Not definitive, but here are my thoughts . Please feel free to add/ delete where you think fit

Proven experience of managing teams in top flight football. Min 10 years
All coaching badges in place
Tactically astute
Track record of young player development
Experience of winning matches in Europe
Media savvy
Good man manager
Experience of using sports science
Experience of using performance statistics
Winning mentality
Knows the history of our club
Has previously worked with DoF.

1.) 28 Feb 2017 11:43:58
Your expectations are pretty high BarcaBear. While those qualities would be ideal, I can't think of anyone that fits your criteria. Would be better if you rank your criteria from most important to least important to give a better sense of what you deem an acceptable manager for us.

2.) 28 Feb 2017 14:48:47
Brendan rodgers didn't have at least 3 of them

3.) 28 Feb 2017 18:34:10
2 things i'd love to see happening. First, fellow bears stop buying the Daily Rebel. secondly if you subscribe to B T, tell em your switching to SKYif they don't get rid of that c&&t Chris Sutton.

Warburton will be in for his teachers pets in summer. McKay, Tav, Kiernan (please please please) and possibly Waggy. Give McKay a good deal and log him to Forrest for £4m cash with 12% sell on. Wont forget McKay pulling out of 60/ 40 tackles and coming off pitch having not worked up a sweat.

DK did raise £7m+ recently from selling one of his companies in New York.
Don't want to speculate, however, he is sitting on a cash pile at the moment.

Hopefully we had a sell on clause included in deal.

If confirmed- this is quite an interesting development. Pedro usually spends max 18 months at a club - Barry would shadow Pedro and in essence, be a she in for our next manager. thoughts?

Nice guy with loads of potential. However, we can't afford another "on the job learning " manager. We need experience, leadership, desire and a passion for winning.

Big Clint. also Graham Murty should be recognised. cometh the hour. cometh the man!

Kiernan, Senderos, Halliday for sure. In saying that - all are on good contracts -why leave and who would take them. Warbs will buy Tav for aprox £1.2m. possibly McKay and possibly Rossiter -if fit

Beyond ecstatic to see the lads play with such commitment, passion, determination and skill. Celtic seemed to think they could just turn up and score 8.Rogers will be reading them the riot act today (hopefully)
Was disgusted with McKays lack of commitment- didn't fancy it at all - pulling out of 50/ 50 70/ 30 tackles. didn't even break sweat. absolutely shocking
. Murty deserves a standing ovation at Hamilton game. true Rangers man!

fair play to Dundee. fitter, stronger, challenging every ball. don't think I can watch this mince any more. too painfull. can't believe Keirnan back in the team. must be clause in his contract. must play when fit etc

Kiernan should never wear a Rangers jersey again
