Normally we would've signed a player with a bad knee or failed a medical. Done it so many times in the past with the player sitting in stand getting fat in the belly and fat in the pocket. So I'm glad Lescott wasn't signed for that reason.

However, wouldn't it be ironic if he goes on to sign for Sunderland and had the season of his career?


1.) 19 Aug 2016 14:27:46
I doubt he failed the medical and in nearly all the reports I have read it said he knocked us back due to family reasons as they wanted to stay in England.

Personally I reckon we could not offer him enough money as Sunderland are offering more, which is hardly surprising considering the difference in our finances.

2.) 19 Aug 2016 14:39:09
Too bad tbh. He's not coming and that's the end of it. I feel Senderos will be a better option anyway. Garner to sign on Monday. All good.

3.) 19 Aug 2016 14:44:46
We've had too many expensive invalids players in the past picking up big wages. Any doubts with the medical then we did the right thing.

4.) 19 Aug 2016 14:55:01
Yeah it's old news now. Let's see if big Senders can agree terms and do a job for us.

Right here's an inside look at my brain guff. I am in awe of MW, DW and FMcP.

Every US sports biography starts like this. Team people have written off over come great odds to achieve greatness. It starts with an ambitious, intelligent manager who will stop at nothing to succeed. (A self fulfilling prophecy calling him the Maguc Hat when he truly is a magician) . The manager puts together a team of players on a shoe string, many have been written off by the media and other teams/ fans, some are young and working under the radar. The team gel together and go on an incredible unbeaten run to achieve glory. The SPL and then the Champions League. And it all started with a bit of hope.

Hahahaha ok so a bit much. But we really need to stop the negativity and pessimism and realise what's actually being achieved here. I can't name a manager or staff that's done what Rabgers are currently achieving with player acquisitions. Players who famously have a love for money are forgetting all about that and joining Rangers to be part of something greater. The team we are putting together on the resources we have is awe inspiring to me. Especially in the current market. These players know what Rangers is all about and want to join our famous club. They're knocking back the "best league in the world" to join us. Let's get behind them and support them 100%. Who knows we might be getting a call from Hollywood in 2 years time. Hahaha.

Great post Bilbo well done.

2.) 19 Aug 2016 10:27:17
If only we were all Rabgers fans though.

3.) 19 Aug 2016 10:36:12
Great input, Bird swing. Cheers appreciate it.

4.) 19 Aug 2016 11:49:19
Well put!

5.) 19 Aug 2016 11:58:29
Brilliant post bilbo. There was a wee movie made called, a sotto of glory. Was along those lines. You should look it up if you haven't already seen it. Stars a hero of mine, a certain Ally McCoist!
Also has quite a few of the lesser known Rangers at the time in it.

6.) 19 Aug 2016 12:34:37
is rab gers our new striker? daily raggard probably have him as a certain signing- then it s all off at last minute due to the heavy rain in scotland.

7.) 19 Aug 2016 12:48:26
Agree, it's a great time for us, with players, quality players moving here because of the club, and in these times that is more of an achievement.

8.) 19 Aug 2016 13:43:42
Pie and bovril. I was in the crowd at hampden for this movie. Got signed programme meant for the cast and a Tennents Parker pen. Will never forget it.

9.) 19 Aug 2016 13:46:39
Gcameron sye thst right mste, spot on. How did you know? My sources told me thst he wss going to sign but wss overly pedsntic snd crspped his psnts.



18 Aug 2016 17:43:59
Right I'm a wee bit concerned with the handling of this Garner contract. So now the deal won't be rubber stamped until next week due to a "change of adviser".

Doesn't seem too bad. Unless you factor in that a poster on here said that MW daughter was his adviser and actually approached Rangers to make the deal.

Is it coincidence that MW hasn't dipped into the transfer funds until now? His daughter would obviously receive a handsome fee for arranging the deal.

But then all of a sudden there's a change of adviser as if there's something fishy going on. Haven't seen or noticed this happen with many transfers before.

Garner is a great player so I'm happy that he's coming but would hope it's all above board with no shenanigans.

Prob nothing tho hahahha.

What hollows ( waggy S got spares, lol)

2.) 18 Aug 2016 19:22:14
What bolloks ( waggys got spares, )

3.) 18 Aug 2016 19:34:03
MW Daughter was not the advisor but the assistant to the players requests. She was approached by advisor re PNE's desires. Reportedly. Perhaps that creates or notes a problem.

4.) 18 Aug 2016 22:07:46
Sorry Stuzo, first answers only. Hollows it is. Better luck next time.

WeAreRangers, knew she was involved. Hopefully it's innocent and there's nothing more to it. Can't see MW risking reputation on it tbh. Just got hefty para is all.



17 Aug 2016 09:24:20
Colin Hendry has came out and said we should've signed £6m Grant Hanley in the transfer window. Think big Colin is on the sauce again. Why stop there big man? We shoulda signed Pogba too.


1.) 17 Aug 2016 11:31:34
prefer danny Wilson.

2.) 17 Aug 2016 14:50:45
Kiernan over Hanley every time.

3.) 17 Aug 2016 15:41:15
Not a huge fan of Hanley either. Where does big Colin think we're getting £6m from to buy a mediocre player?



16 Aug 2016 20:39:38
After embedding some of the posts regarding potential signings, we should change one of our songs:


Seriously though, some of these lads will ultimately pull on a sacred blue jersey and they've slatted before doing so. I expect to hear that sort of guff from that mob about our players but not from our own. Sad.


1.) 16 Aug 2016 21:16:53
I wasn't initially positive about Garner, want to see Dodoo get a serious chance, but after speaking to PNE fans (my half brother is a season ticket holder) and lurking on their forums I'll happily admit I may have jumped the gun! A player they describe as a Lion who will fight for every inch of turf and at 5"10 will win headers against 6"3 defenders and they're convinced he will easilly score 25+ a season in the SPL.
Senderos isn't one that gives me even a semi either but he's had his moments at the top level and is reliable footballer, warburton mentioned he looks technically strong in training, who's good in the air! At 31 a worthwhile gamble for me!
Lescott however, always thought he was way out his depth in every department in every league and every game. I know pace isn't everything but he had absolute zero at his peak! Struggles to play a four yard pass, can't defend has a poor, arrogant attitude and only seems to care about getting off the field pronto to put a fkin beanie on! Nah, I'll pass!

2.) 16 Aug 2016 22:05:37
Bilbo, totally agree, we slate them before they are here and we slate our own when they play instead of supporting them all that wear that famous jersey. It's depressing and as you say very sad. I never knew anyone that got better getting g told they are crazy! Everyone waring the Jersey should be fully supported and encouraged when they play for the Rangers.

3.) 16 Aug 2016 22:42:37
RFCinfinity, what u talking about he can't defend he won the league with man city and got in there first team squad over Kolo Toure, so stop talking out yer ar**.

4.) 16 Aug 2016 22:49:41
Joe garner looks a player alright and will be a tremendous signing for us, he'll score goals for fun up here and is good on all aspects of being a good striker, right foot, left foot finishes as well as being a terrific header of a ball, also full of running and brave as a lion! On our pursue of a centre half I honestly think both senderos and lescott would be good signings for us as they would do very well in the scottish premiership, I do however know we'll only sign one of these two centre halfs so my own personal choice would be lescott over senderos even though lescott is 3 years older than senderos, lescott is the type of centre half we need, very strong in the challenge, commanding and terrific in the air, we currently don't have a centre half like that at ibrox, I like the above posters can't understand all this negativity regarding these 2 centre halfs and there's even some negativity aimed at us signing joe garner, let's just wait and see what they do before criticising them, I'm extremely confident they'll be very good signings for us, be patient and trust our manager's judgement!

5.) 17 Aug 2016 08:43:03
These sort of players coming to the mighty Rangers will only raise the profile of our club and Scottish football in general. Sheep and hearts need to get finger out and start bringing in some names. This is how it starts. Roll out the red carpet and see how these lads get on.

Blueshaun, DW and RK are decent at corners. Do you expect them to mark an entire opposing team at corners? Goals from corners have been other outfield losing their markers and/ or Wes not being commanding. The most recent at Dundee was Barton. Fair play he held his hands up to it but he must do better. Get off the DW and RK bandwagon please.

Let's all just take a minute, breath and relax before slating our board etc. Let's find out the facts before jumping the gun. According to Sky, Garner has already signed a 3 year deal so let's leave the conspiracy theories to that mob please.

James Stirling. Mate I watch every football game that's going and saw plenty of Lescott last term. He would've made a great addition to our squad and raised the profile of our club. Remi Garde, Lescott's manager came out last year and hailed him as a player he could rely on and applauded his effort to the cause. Somebody is talking out their unmentionable. Wonder who?

Biffo, pace, drive and style. Watch MOH. He barely goes backwards with the ball. Very direct, which is what we need. Too many side and back passes for me.

Personally I would like to see a 5-2-3 based on our current squad



Barton/ Holt/ Halliday

Wait. What? Barton was the best the player on the park?
No room for MOH but Crooks Windass Milker stroll into someone's starting XI?

I give up.

First Tav needs to learnhow to swing in a ball with the correct weight and pace. Far too many times he over hits it with too much pace IMO. But you're half right because there was no one in the box to finish them anyway.

Our style of play is at times, shocking. Defence not any worse or better than our midfield at times.
