Tony Pulis was on 2m a year at WBA.

So that's a big dirty NOPE for us then.


1.) 21 Nov 2017 09:26:43
Well he is on £0 now.

2.) 21 Nov 2017 09:37:41
More like a big dirty don’t want him anyway!

3.) 21 Nov 2017 12:35:34
Totally agree with rick on this one. Pulis isn't an option.

4.) 21 Nov 2017 13:08:29
id take Pulis.

If we take McLeish on now it will be a joke as we could have had him 3 weeks ago. Are we running out of targets now?

5.) 21 Nov 2017 13:23:44
Gio to b manager

6.) 21 Nov 2017 14:20:05
No he won’t

7.) 21 Nov 2017 18:31:32
No chance

8.) 21 Nov 2017 18:59:32
anyone on here remember Eck having no wins in 10 or 11 with a far better team than we have now.

fans at front door calling for his head

sorry bears i think it’s a mistake

9.) 22 Nov 2017 06:00:08
Mcleish was always getting the job, the board are trying to get him his £15 million for transfers, that was his original request and they chose pedro the cheap option that cost us all in about 13 mill on players and him get p45

10.) 22 Nov 2017 11:36:50
Pullis's recent record at WBA doesn't make very good reading, 3 wins in the last 25 matches!



16 Nov 2017 12:45:01
STV reporting Henning Berg has reportedly submitted his application for the job. Gus Poyet and Tim Sherwood are also looking to speak with Rangers.

Would anybody like to see Sherwood at Ibrox?


1.) 16 Nov 2017 13:05:46
That would be interesting. Sherwood I mean, not poyet,

2.) 16 Nov 2017 13:34:47
I agree Sherwood has something about him, but he has a track record of being prickly with players and media and think it would be wrong to go down that route again!

3.) 16 Nov 2017 15:44:58
Sherwood had a win rate of 50% with Tottenham and 36% with Aston Villa.
Would this be a good appointment?
The stats answer the question.

4.) 16 Nov 2017 17:19:26

5.) 16 Nov 2017 17:53:14
None of the above please

6.) 16 Nov 2017 19:04:34
Win percentages for managers in the EPL don’t really give a good representation of the manager as it’s such a hard league to win in

7.) 16 Nov 2017 23:10:56
Behave yourselves. Henning Berg, Tim Sherwood and Gus Poyet. No way.

It should be Mcinnes unless Sam Allardyce wants the job. , we can’t gamble on anyone who isn’t tried and tested.

8.) 17 Nov 2017 04:23:34
Big sam needs a big transfer budget. If he got the job it would be a team of loan players as we don't have a big transfer budget

9.) 17 Nov 2017 11:27:33
I can't see any of those three getting the job.

10.) 17 Nov 2017 12:22:11
Think it should be McInnes because this will weaken Aberdeen and strengthen Rangers. Don't see the attraction in not going for the obvious choice.

11.) 17 Nov 2017 13:46:37
Well we have seen a few names added a few ourselves etc for next manager

Wel i say let's get sir alec ferguson and walter out of retirement now there is a comboo to stop and win gers 10 in a row lol

12.) 17 Nov 2017 18:08:10
Thinking that we could keep Murty on as Caretaker Manager until end of Season. Think this would suit both Murty and the Board.
I think that we need to see what Murty is like over a longer period if time before actually giving him the Post! I don't think we can decide on him after 2 Games at this level.
Again letting Murty run the Team and seeing how he goes under Caretaker Manager makes sense.

13.) 18 Nov 2017 23:19:47
He can submit it again and again and again no way he getting the job tho.



10 Nov 2017 08:44:03
Steve McClaren has sent his CV to Rangers.

So, Rangers haven't made any contact with him, it's the other way about.

Like I said a few days ago on here, Rangers haven't made contact with any manager yet and are comfortable with Murty looking after the team for a while, until the board have thought the candidates through.

There will be hundreds of people applying for this job, despite what the rest of Scottish football will try to to tell you, it's still a massive job, Hearts got about one hundred applicants fs and they are tinpot.


1.) 10 Nov 2017 11:37:23
I doubt he's sent in his CV, he's not going for a job in Tescos.

2.) 10 Nov 2017 13:04:06
aye awright gazz nae bor mate, top bantz bro, you've really done me there son.

3.) 10 Nov 2017 14:19:11
They don't need his cv to see he's been a failure just google his name and go into his wiki the wonderful world of the internet

4.) 10 Nov 2017 17:05:19
If he has sent his CV, I hope somebody at the Club wipes their ar*e with it and flushes it down the bog.

5.) 10 Nov 2017 18:04:39
I hope it gets papped right in the shredder

6.) 11 Nov 2017 12:04:39
First time I've ever contributed with a rumour . but I met a guy before the Hearts game at Murrayfield who has connections in the game and who is related to one of the Hearts team (and also a Stoke player) . He told me that McLaren had contacted Rangers to say he was interested in the job.

This was before it was in the press or on here.

7.) 11 Nov 2017 12:15:18
Posted it in close proximity to a petrol station I heard.

8.) 11 Nov 2017 17:20:22
No. It was a bar in Haymarket actually.



30 Oct 2017 09:26:09
Rangers holding talks with Alan Pardew and also Derek Mcinnes (Reported in various papers this morning) .


1.) 30 Oct 2017 09:48:06
It shldve happened 7 months ago because we didn't need a mass clear out and certainly not a foreign nobody. What we needed was to add quality and strength to the team and quicken the play up a wee bit and the arguments against mcinnes don't make any sense because that means that any good young Scottish manager who is managing a Scottish club can never manage Rangers or Celtic because of their performances against them for their current team which is all av heard since last Wednesday at pittodrie. They will have better finances and should ultimately have better players to compete against Celtic if they recruit well like they've done at their previous club to finish 2nd on a lower budget than us and if that isn't the sort of manager we should be looking for then am racking ma brains who we should go for!

2.) 30 Oct 2017 10:23:31
My choice would be to hang onto Murty and Johanson as first team coaches until the end of the season. Let Mark Allen do his job in setting up the scouting system, and bring back Walter Smith as the Manager (remember, Bayern Munich just brought back Jupp Henckyss and he is older than Walter) . We could not possibly get anyone in Scotland with any more gravitas than Walter, and his record and stature stands up to comparison with Brendan rogers. He would not cost the earth and would instill the right behaviour throughout our club. Its a no brainer if he would accept.

3.) 30 Oct 2017 11:17:49
Rick, what a load of dross. You seriously think we should've kept the majority of the players fromWarburton? You'd rather have Halliday than Jack, Keirnan than Alves, Garner than Morelos. Come on.

4.) 30 Oct 2017 12:05:01
Rick - is Alan Pardew not a "foreign nobody" as well?

5.) 30 Oct 2017 12:12:54
Although I don't agree with Rick I do think (in hindsight) that we were hasty in some moves.
Blue 89 you are clearly picking your battles. I don't think anyone would take Garner over Morelos but would you rather Garner or Herrera? What about Kept McKay over Dalcio?

Although can you imagine a front line of Garner and Morelos? Loads of goals and loads of cards! Ha.

6.) 30 Oct 2017 12:52:04
Seen a lot of folk saying we need a manager who takes no guff and gets stuck in about things so I've sent a message on the twitter to Ken Shamrock see if we can EBT him towards his coaching licence

7.) 30 Oct 2017 12:55:13
Blue89 you really never got what I was saying there and souness I'm still struggling to understand what Alan pardew has got to do with this! Bluegenius is sort of on the same wavelength. Look at our bench this season and you'll get what I mean.

8.) 30 Oct 2017 13:28:28
say what u want about pedro but alves candias and morelos are better players than we have had in many years herrera isn't quite tough enough but maybe could come good if pertnered with morelos side by side.

his tactics and strange subs during a match is what lost his games and ultimately his job

9.) 30 Oct 2017 14:52:06
Well said rick witter, why people want another experiment when the answer is on our door step is beyond me. Mcinnes is the answer and if we don't get him now you's will regret it.

10.) 30 Oct 2017 14:55:00
Let Walter Smith enjoy his retirement. He deserves it.

11.) 30 Oct 2017 14:57:28
Peds11 you still can't accept what has happened to pedro, maybe a name change for you soon.

12.) 30 Oct 2017 16:06:24
fod the prod i can see a name change soon yes lol any ideas

13.) 30 Oct 2017 17:24:10
Shaft1690 I agree, to get watty back would be amazing but let's say he won nothing, that would be blemish in his amazing record.

With Mcrorie looking likely to miss out tomorrow and the very limited number of midfield options we have found ourselves with. How do you think Murty will set up tomorrow night?

I can't really think how he will play the same shape without Mcrorie, unless he keeps Alves and Wilson back 2 and play Cardoso CDM? I know, doesn't sound great, I'm just speculating but I think Wilson is too slow for the CDM role, Fabio is faster.

Tbh he will probably have to change the shape all together if Mcrorie isn't playing.


1.) 12 Dec 2017 20:01:38
Fod _______bates alves wilson________ candieas tav barjonas holt John _________windass morelos ___________

2.) 12 Dec 2017 20:28:33
3-5-2 is a great shout. hibs are a good team and there strength is midfield. so we should pack it and try and win the middle of the park then the rest should take care of itself. but I'm gutted about our injuries. I suppose it will make it sweeter if we win. but we're in for a battle. Lennon will have them pumped up. that's for sure

3.) 13 Dec 2017 07:04:48
barjonas to start

if mcrorie can do a job in holding role as a converted cntr half why not barjonas who’s a natural centr mid who’s played that role every game he’s ever played

i hope he starts and plays a blinder as the lad has real promise and as we know hibs are a good team but let’s show everyone we are too

4.) 13 dec 2017 08:16:26
cardoso alves wilson
tav barjonas candieas holt john
miller morelos

my opinion on pena is he gets into good spaces and sees the space well. just no first touch and very lazy.

if mcrorie is fit i'd play him instead of miller and put candieas further forward.

5.) 13 Dec 2017 08:20:23
Murty is a Shankly student - replace like for like. He didn't shy away from playing Bates and he won't shy away from playing Barjonas. It will be the normal formation, except I think he might go for the strength of Herrera as opposed to the . well, nothing really, of Pena.

6.) 13 Dec 2017 08:21:56
Good team Jzer. we've been so unlucky with injuries the past 2 seasons. its incredible the amount of long term injuries we've had.

7.) 13 Dec 2017 08:51:30
Cardoso alves Wilson
tav barjonas holt pena jack
miller morelos

8.) 13 Dec 2017 09:40:34
Why would anyone put Pena in the team against Hibs? This will be a battle tonight and the last thing we need is a lazy player who contributes nothing in midfield. Put in Barjonas where you at least will get a player who will be up for the game

9.) 13 Dec 2017 10:37:02
remember we have kenny miller to play four positions in one so thatll help 😛

10.) 13 Dec 2017 10:57:34
Hibs have a good engine in mcginn Bartley mcgeoch etc in that central area! We must look to match that Murty will imo keep the same shape but as my previous post I would like to see us match them hence the 5 across middle and me moving tav into the central 3 his stamina is vital in there to help out holty who has been playing well and has tremendous mobility but obviously lacks strength and presence! Barjo and tav are athletes and are vital for the win tonight



10 Dec 2017 00:36:26
With Jack's suspension, Dorrans injury and now the possibility of Mcrorie being out injured.

What's everybody's thoughts for the Hibs game? Struggling for players in the middle of the park, can see us being overrun.

Missed Jack today, he might be aggressive but he does the dirty work that most won't notice, nothing fancy just breaks up play. Going to be a difficult 2 games without him. Jack literally does what Joey Barton could not achieve last season, at a fraction of the wage.


1.) 10 Dec 2017 09:44:22
It is worrying that Dorrans, Jack and Rossiter are all out injured. We could push Tavernier forward and play Hodson at right back. Windass and Morelos are must-starts (I would put Miller on the bench) . Holt is playing really well and we still have Candeias.
Foderingham; Hodson, Alves, D. Wilson, John; Tavernier, Holt, Candeias, Pena; Windass; Morelos

Of course McCrorie plays if fit but Pena could hurt Hibs lurking around the penalty box. Kranjcar could come on if we need to create openings if the game isn't going our way. We must not lose this game. Hibs play Septic, us then Aberdeen all within a week. It's a shame a whole midfield is out injured. How did Barjonas play when he came on - I didn't see the game.

2.) 10 Dec 2017 10:09:17
Totally with you BearMode91,regarding ryan jack! Echo everything you say about him mate! I would like to add that ryan jack has all the attributes, to be the glasgow rangers captain, in the very near future! Reminds me so much like tough midfielders of yesteryears, like ian ferguson, terry hurlock, kevin thomson etc! Every successful football team needs a tough tackling, no nonsense, hard midfielder, who can break play, fast ball retention and can start moves off, from the defensive midfield area! IMO, ryan jack can do all that!

3.) 10 Dec 2017 10:16:06
Aye young McCrorie will be a big miss. I like the look of Jamie Barjonas and feel he would be good cover there but if I were GM I might be tempted to put Cardoso in beside Alves and push Danny Wilson into a deep position in front with Barjonas, Holt, Candeias and Windass behind Morelos. The full backs will need to be on top of their game and be prepared to get up and down the park. Hibs have been crap in some games this season but no doubt the Lurgan lout will have them fired up for their 'cup final'

4.) 10 Dec 2017 10:23:27
Jack is suspended

5.) 10 Dec 2017 11:13:43
Push Wilson into mcrorie position and backfill with bates/ cardoso

6.) 10 Dec 2017 16:53:12
We never seem to have any luck re injuries, Dorrans, wallace, mccrorie would all start if available and throw in jacks suspension to that and its a big ask at a tough venue on Wed nite but this is when others need to stand up and b counted. i hope to god that Penas nowere near the starting 11



07 Dec 2017 18:12:32
Oh dear.

So who next?




06 Dec 2017 22:32:43
Wish folk would stop using that Murty best Aberdeen home and away as ammunition for slating Mcinnes.

Aberdeen haven't kicked a ball since Pedro was sacked, that's a fact. 5 weeks have passed and Aberdeen have won just once in that time, yet before Pedro was sacked he wa UNBEATEN in the league, level on points with the stench.

He's desperate for the job as he is a bluenose through and through, he clearly lost interest at Aberdeen because he knew when Pedro was gone (decision was made after the Motherwell semi final), he was favourite.

Accept that he will be the next Rangers manager and please give him a chance fs. He's not even for the club tie on yet and he's being slated for all he's worth.


1.) 06 Dec 2017 23:00:16
You are absolutely right BearMode91. He is desperate for the job. Gee the guy a break. Aw this pish about he couldn't beat Celtic. The gulf between Celtic and the rest is too big and has been for years now. Rangers fans should shut their eyes and imagine if they got the sniff of a chance to manage the club you have loved all your life. support the guy. people on here talking about tactics. Playing fifa on the xbox doesn't count. Back Derek and let's see where it takes us.

2.) 06 Dec 2017 23:12:56
Well said bearmode91 to many experts on here saying he’s not the right guy for the job how do they know this if he isn’t given a chance these so called fans want what’s best for us well back the boards choice and let him get on with the job

3.) 07 Dec 2017 00:23:47
well said bear mode mate. we have the most bi polar fans sometimes, from ranting about murtys lack of experience after hamilton and dundee, to changing tune after two games against the sheep and thinking he is more qualified than DMc now. worries me that he isn't even in the door yet and a few are lining up taking pops already. let's respect the decision and get behind him 100%. there are plenty more deserving of our wrath in this league

4.) 07 Dec 2017 09:27:43
Respect your opinions chaps, especially as this banter page is all about opinions. Just a shame you are the ones getting aw biscuit 'ersed about ours

I have no doubt DM is desperate to get in the big chair, I also believe you'll be as desperate as me to get him out this time next year. But like I say, it's all about opinions. If it's 100% facts you're after, try Mystic Meg

And by the way, like everyone else on here, if DM is the new manager he will get my total support while in the post. And yes, I do hope i'm wrong in my assessment, but no, I won't be keeping my opinions to myself in the hope it will give you fellas a better night's sleep

5.) 07 Dec 2017 09:35:26

McInnes grew up supporting Morton

6.) 07 Dec 2017 10:48:50
Well said birnotablue, everyone is entitled to their opinion. I also have serious doubts about the appointment but will most certainly back my team as I always do. Also I would love to be proved wrong and DM hits the road running with real progression made, but if he doesn't I will come on and give my opinion irrespective of who does or doesn't like it. Like fodtheprod and the others I was not happy with Pedro's appointment and was constantly vilified on this site for criticising him. I heard Mark Guidi on RC say that he should have been bulleted after the European exit. Hate being proved right!

7.) 07 Dec 2017 11:34:02
Seeker c’mon lol who hates being proved right?

BearMode91 are you Jabba in disguise lol?

10.) 08 Dec 2017 08:52:33
Mcinnes is an educated appointment rather than a hopeful appointment like ped and warbs. Mcinnes knows the league, the scottish game, the type of player for the scottish game, our club. He has been successful in our game. 3 cup finals, 2nd consistently in the spl for the last 3 seasons. This not beating celtic is nonsense, let's face it Do you think alex ferguson or walter smith could beat celtic to the title with aberdeen and their budget? The answer is naw! Mcinnes has worked wonders up there given his pittance of a budget and has taken them as far as they could possibly go. I hear fans saying we need a big name, A big name is going to want big bucks to spend, reality check required for a lot of fans. The names that fans were suggesting, big sam, de boer, GvB, pulis etc would never come to us unless they were getting tens of millions to spend. Give mcinnes a chance, he's proved he's a good manager that can get success consistently on a small budget. With a bigger budget at us he might just be able to get us challenging properly.

11.) 08 Dec 2017 08:54:49
I'll get one thing straight here, before making my point about our potential new manager, derek mcinnes. He wasn't my preferred choice either, just like many fellow bluenose's out there. Having said that BearMode91 is spot on! We should all get right behind derek mcinnes, if as expected, he does become the 17th manager of glasgow rangers! He'll most certainly get my full backing! He is after all "ONE OF OUR OWN"! I know that doesn't mean he'll succeed as our manager but let's us, the greatest supporters in the universe, give him every chance to succeed by getting right behind derek! I've always backed every rangers manager and my team in my well over 40 years of supporting the famous! So if it does come to pass and derek mcinnes becomes our new manager, our message to him should be, "WELCOME HOME"!



02 Dec 2017 02:06:39
Cannot believe I am seeing people on here claim they would rather to see Jack Ross, previously of the mighty Alloa, currently of the Paisley giants St Mirren in the Championship, than Derek Mcinnes.

Good. Grief.


1.) 02 Dec 2017 03:51:30
I honestly cannot believe names like McLeish McInnes Wright. do not underestimate Dave King. i believe we are going to shock a lot of people and bring someone in who is a big name. my fellow bears.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 08:09:45
If it is a so called big name like you say FERRET the compensation will be a fair sum of money because most top managers are on 1 year rolling contracts, I honestly can't see it being anyone else other than Mcinnes as Dave king stated he will have knowledge of Scottish and British football

3.) 02 Dec 2017 09:16:42
Anyone seen or heard from Souness recently. Wouldn't surprise me if a shock return with Wilkins was on the cards!

4.) 02 Dec 2017 09:19:35
Who would you class as a big name ferret? I'd love to believe it. and POSSIBLY with new share issue now going to happen DK may pull a rabbit out the hat but I'm not convinced. Here's hoping. As iv stated previously mcinnes ain't my preference! when he said a few games ago the rotten mob r unbeatable I thot no way ever did souey jock wallace or Walter etc ever admit That! What a defeatist attitude.

5.) 02 Dec 2017 16:37:53
BearMode Jack Ross ran Celtic as close as any team did last season with a non existent budget, 10 times less than the mighty McInnes, I wouldn’t be so naive to discountva good young Scottish manager, McInnes showed some promise once upon a time

Look Mcinnes rejected us, time to accept it.

I was in the Mcinnes camp but tbh after watching that utter dross last night vs Dundee, might be a blessing in disguise. fair enough they got the win but Mcinnes was screaming for the fulltime whistle 30 seconds before injury time was up against Dundee. Honking side, we should finish 2nd comfortably if we get a decent manager in.

Ps. Ashley isn't coming back, it cost the board millions getting rid of him, why do people keep thinking this is an option.

Pennniarcade, and what does the club 'believe' in exactly? The club has no political ties whatsoever.

Fans may follow what other fans believe, but they do not speak for the honest majority, who form their own views and opinions.

Doubt it. The same as the bread man didn’t try to sign back any of his duds.

Not saying either Mexicans are duds btw. Herrera hasn’t had s fair change in mr opinion, and when he was given more than 3 mins at he end of a game he actually scored, twice.

Pena is talented but frustrating also. He is also a whipping boy. He was getting pelters vs County when there were at least 3 or 4 more players playing just as poorly as him. And the service was diabolical. Still the right decision to sub him👍🏼 Doesn’t make him a bad player because the game didn’t suit him though.

Johnnymac55 mate, we've not won 3 games in a row in dunkies (until today, get the flags oot) and have been beaten 2-0 by the mighty accies at Ibrox for the first time in 90 years or whatever. Forgive me for being cynical but as you say, it has been pretty bad for us recently, let's no kid on here.
