fellow bears what do yous think about our chances against celtic in the cup!
1.) 08 Apr 2016 21:13:36
If they play as well as they did against Dundee last weekend and we play as well as we can, then it could be a brilliant result.
But I would be happy with a 2-1 win.
I imagine S. Brown is kicking a tree to prepare for it.
2.) 08 Apr 2016 22:07:32
And if celtic play like they did when they gubbed Hamilton and rangers play like they did against Falkirk in the last 20 mins a few weeks ago it could be bad news for your lot ifs buts and maybes?
3.) 08 Apr 2016 22:19:12
Welcome to a Rangers rumours and banter site bigp.
Mostly ifs and buts on here Pal.
4.) 08 Apr 2016 23:03:50
Bigp then again we could maybe put in up the performance we did against dundee, a team your lot have failed to beat in your lsst two feeble atempts, the same dundee that we trounced, they hardly got a kick of the ball against us,

Love it big John I've never been boastful about the gers but let's get it right, they've played Dundee twice the last month or so and struggled against their reserve team, and we gubbed their best who WERE up for it in the cup. I'm sick of people trying to play us down this squad is the real deal whose answered everything that's been thrown at them. I say bring in the celts and show them what they are in for next year.
6.) 09 Apr 2016 08:56:27
They aren't playing team down they are just being realistic. How can you say team is the real deal? We have just won the championship not the premiership. Let's see how we fare in the top league before calling the team the real deal. The semi final will be a marker as to where we are at the moment but that's all. To me Celtic are clear favourites for the tie however i think we can win with a bit of luck.
7.) 09 Apr 2016 11:35:59
Never mind people not rating Rangers, I think Celtic are getting far too much credit that they don't merit.
It's the worst team they've had since the 90's. If people aren't confident of beating this mob there is no hope for them.
They've been trounced endlessly in Europe, stuttered their way to the title against the might of Aberdeen. People go on about their experience but what I see is players past it like Broon, Mulgrew, Commons etc. Nothing they have scares me. Griffiths isn't even scoring right now.
I can see nothing but a win for us at Hampden. As for next year I'm sure MW knows what he needs and I'm sure the board will back him. Do I think Diella knows the same? Short answer is no!
8.) 09 Apr 2016 12:09:53
Great post and I agree 100%. We are not being deluded here. This might not be the best Rangers team in history but as you say Celtic are pants just now and are only winning the title due to the lack of any credible challenge. Our team has flaws of course, but we are younger, fitter and mostly quicker than them. Our achilles heel is the defence being exposed due to our style of play. But then if thumbheid is going off the boil it surely means we have a chance. Even if we lose I think we might surprise them with the quality we undoubtedly have. The future is bright and with 4 or 5 additions over the summer we will be in great shape to mount a challenge imo.
9.) 09 Apr 2016 14:08:29
When you think of the chances we've created and missed this year as well Seeker I'd like to think if we add an out and out striker to the mix we won't need a defence because we will score for fun. But I agree the defence needs tweaked.
We are 3 starters away from having an excellent team and 3 squad players. We need a CDM, CB AND Striker of genuine quality and experience. Then Crooks, Windass and a Full Back as cover that can play on both sides. Add that to Hardie, Thompson and Murdoch and we have the squad I'm sure can challenge. We need anything else there's always January. Maybe a GK as well but I'm being greedy.

Does this mean Michael o'halloran deal is dead?
28 Jan 2016 15:47:25
Michael o'halloran any news? Yet.
1.) 28 Jan 2016 15:52:15
King in now and 250,000 for the windass and crooks no o halloran unfortunately good kid and just what we needed chances we create and his pace would bet us 15 goals before end of season.
2.) 28 Jan 2016 15:56:16
Luigi said sky sports have a reporter at every petrol garage from ibrox to perth. Should be a bulletin any minute.
3.) 28 Jan 2016 16:02:15
Still no money. Loans only. A real shame.
23 Jan 2016 02:48:26
Love the gers we all mi heart but our club is shambles losin top target to leeds united now wots next o'halloran to go some were every time we want player money seems 2 be problem yet again so much for dave king aka dave the wave makin sure we got our targets totally scrappin the barrel.
1.) 23 Jan 2016 03:31:42
Not good to lose out on our top target to a team like Leeds. Kind of puts question marks on King and his £millions to invest in Rangers. So far it looks like he is the guy with the big mouth while the other Directors are the ones providing the cash.
He needs to bring in a quality defensive midfield player in January that is better than the guy that we have just missed out on and O'Halloran or perhaps someone that is similarly better.
No doubt the King camp will stand up for him but so far he is all talk for me!
2.) 23 Jan 2016 05:47:25
Never ever trusted king all talk the signings so far some have been good ie waghorn haliday but little or no money has been spent if we're in such a state why doesn't king and co leave and let someone else come in with a bit of guts to spend some money that's badly needed.
3.) 23 Jan 2016 08:48:16
What a load of nonsense. The guy apparently went to leeds for 1.5million we where never going to pay that sort of money and rightly so. Some fans don't seemed to have learned anything from the last 4 years. We should not be spending more than we bring in at the minute while in the championship. We're never going to be able to compete with English championship teams financially.
4.) 23 Jan 2016 09:24:49
Tom42.1.5 mill for tounami. he ain't worth that,700k tops. ohalloran 500k tops. we aren't being thrifty with money. we are being sensible. i want to see new signings as much as the next bear, i would like to see ohalloran or mabye vaulks as another poster mentioned.
5.) 23 Jan 2016 09:33:35
While I totally agree with what your saying the other posters do have a point about King. It was him who came out with the statements about over investing in the team. No one pressured him into saying that and all the fans want him to be is true to his word. He has previous for lying and it's looking like he is lying again. After what the fans have been through I think they have every right to be sceptical about him.
6.) 23 Jan 2016 09:42:27
Hooly well said, way too much negative chat on here just because we lose a player to Leeds! Cmoan with moan noo lads we can't be shipping oot 1.5 million, and I can tell u now he's not worth that, not for us anyway, he might slot into the set up for Leeds at that price due to having so much experience in that league.
I agree we need a DF mid to help AH, but if we don't get it we have the cover with Dom Ball, so all is not lost, I keep saying it the key is not to let the likes of deano and Law go and if we get OH the spending might stop there till summer.
7.) 23 Jan 2016 09:58:19
Hooly78.then why put in weak derisory bids if manager rates him then ask what the club wants for a player and if it can be done then you negotiate to an amicable fee. not offer a third and then claim will not be held to ransom. it is getting beyond embarrassment.
8.) 23 Jan 2016 09:15:00
The anti-king people are ignoring the fact that the man came in and steadied the boat, encourages investment from real Rangers fans and also helped get our management team!
Not buying a 28 year old lad who can jog around in the Dm position doesn't make us a joke! MW said himself that he has targets but a good team so won't panic buy. Some people on here need to get a thicker skin and realise that we can't go around wrapping up million pound deals anymore.
I would rather see contracts extended and Ibrox worked on.
9.) 23 Jan 2016 10:54:43
If you don't like what King is doing the answer is simple.
Use your vast range of business contacts and know how and buy his shares.
I would rather trust a SUCCESSFUL business man and potentially very successful football manager to run our club. Why do some people on here expect it perfect in 7 months? We are top of the league, have assembled a good squad and I am as sure as those who are slagging of our club management, that we will not spend unnecessarily to win a lower league when money will be needed to do well in top league.
We know how bad things were on the field last year, we do not know how bad they were off the field, god know how much money is needed for other things.
10.) 23 Jan 2016 12:03:44
Mkb1872 ., who's in such a state?
We are five points clear in the league!
As for signings name me a bad signing that MW has made?
As for Dave King he and the fellow directors had one helluva job to do when they came in all at a cost, let's just be patient we ARE on our way back to were we belong but things take time . WATP.
19 Jan 2016 10:26:30
Yous getting worried now why a club our size not got this deal done for o'halloran 500k c'mon wots tht now a days let's get real ths is getting embarrassing now when our rivals across the road seem to get players no bother it is worrying it times.
1.) 19 Jan 2016 12:58:49
Honestly don't believe O Halloran is worth £500k so why pay it. We have been stung buying over priced players. 4 goals this season in a terrible league hardly inspires much confidence about him. Still don't think we need a winger and would be better getting a striker.
2.) 19 Jan 2016 13:00:35
they paid 4mil for a dud from Dinamo Zagreb, why would we care what they do and how much they spend?
3.) 19 Jan 2016 13:20:31
At least they paid asking price and got the player good or bad sometimes a gamble is needed . however we seem to be the club penny pinching. and for all saying he isn't worth £500,000.wait and see when he is a rangers player suddenly he will be worth a million its only because we won't pay the money that some on here will de value him. brentford boy was world class when it was first muted we wanted him and the longer this saga goes on his value and class seems to be ebbing away from the same posters who were saying "excellent world class signing, better than anything in scotland" these are the people who need reality checks. what happened to the we want him we will get him diatribes that were getting quoted at start of warbs tenure?
4.) 19 Jan 2016 13:38:19
they paid OVER THE ODDS, on a dud and it will not repay them. we however will pay what we think is the correct amount, this is a lot better than the way it was before!
5.) 19 Jan 2016 13:44:40
onlyshowaround is correct here, why should we care what any other team spends and how they conduct their business, Warbuton stated if he gets 7/10 signings right then he's doing well, what ratio of correct signings does Deila have at the moment 2/10 probably! Great business model to strive for eh!
6.) 19 Jan 2016 15:41:09
A player is only worth what a club will pay.
7.) 19 Jan 2016 16:24:04
Maybe the 2 coming in are the 2 accricton lads?

9.) 19 Jan 2016 16:39:16
Sorry but a player doesn't automatically become a £1m player plus I've never heard anyone class the Brentford player as world class. O Halloran isn't worth £500k and we don't need someone in his position. As for the Brentford player he has been shocking in the last 2 games very slow and cumbersome looking. It may be that he wants out and wasn't trying however I don't think it's good to be signing players with that attitude.
10.) 19 Jan 2016 20:46:31
MW stated he has 3 options for each position he wants to fill, I cringe listen to the moans about just give them the money and get the player, where have they been the last few years!
Trust the board and management, let's just be patient and see what happens, also the summer will be the time when you see money spent on three or four right decent players .
01 Jan 2017 11:50:18
Mark warburton needs new defenders more than anything fact and maube just maybe we might come good but playin bawheed kiernan your askin for trouble guys murder swear to good worst gers defence since le guens time and we badly need goal scorer with out tht forget celtic n league titles but were a pure joke right now the way we lost tht game and losin 2 goals its school boy errors the crap at the back it needs to stop and needs to be cut out were no Barcelona so why can't we not do normall defending.
31 Dec 2016 14:07:24
Exactly wut mean Defence yet again n warburton really is clueless we need experiance manager n rob kiernan says it all really by gers fans have good new year.
08 Dec 2016 14:30:42
That's one for the future tho tbh were needing players who are ready to cum n play now and wots required to play for rangers we don't have time to bed in youngsters were already miles behind Celtic we need to be at the level we once were and that's winning trophies n playing in Europe every season if we are to get to the same level as Celtic then going for 18 year old at this level is no use to us right now we don't have time for bedding and gelin as we have found out this season. No disrespect but our team is mostly championship n league one players it best right now and that is the reality right now whether we like it or not, iv heard were after Jason Cummings now that makes sence he's 25 goal a season striker were missing that badly n he knows Scottish football plus ali crawford is being linked would be amazing buy again he's SPL player and has proved his worth with Hamilton remember the nutmeg any one then his cracker off a goal it Ibrox. Hate to say this but I don't think halliday n Holt are SPL standard there to lightweight go missing in games sumtimes if anything championship at best.
02 Dec 2016 00:56:28
Wastin your time bears he ain't going to drop his fav pet big rob keirnan n he ain't going to ditch his formation simple as tht bite our tounges n accept it untill he's gone wich hopefully is soon told yas months ago he wasnt ryt for rangers and our fans sayin we wur makin progress under him far from it.
01 Dec 2016 13:41:04
Rick witter did celtic not get rodgers yes n rangers are bigger thn palace and west brom if your hsppy we the dross we have thn good luck but bein ambitous is what we need to do or do we go for alex neil then instead but we more or less are mansged by acedemy coach not cut out for this level so i would definitely go for better manager any day.
