DR reports today McKay wanted by Leipzig for £6mill. This will test the board to see if keeping our youth to build on is more important than Balancing the books. Personally I would push for 8mill and use that to buy 3 players. CB, DM and striker
1.) 20 Jan 2017 09:02:31
£8m would test the board's resolve Blue nose, but we need to think about the push for 2nd and the prospect of European football. What will Barrie McKay's stock be at after a couple of euro games? This is only the first bid from one team which will trigger a mad dash of scouts etc from everywhere! . The board will have to run the risk of him getting injured if they keep him. Difficult one for DK and Warbs. I think Warbs will push to keep him tho because he knows a potential EPL move looms over the horizon.
2.) 20 Jan 2017 10:12:10
Anything over £5 million I think the board would bite their hand off. Disappointing as I do think he is both our best and most promising player at the moment.
3.) 20 Jan 2017 10:31:12
The delusion here is outstanding? Explain the £6m valuation other than the daily record saying so. Decent player, played well in the Hogmany game, nothing more. £1.5-2m at most I'd say
4.) 20 Jan 2017 09:21:21
I'd say sell him. Take the £6mil and buy Hayes and Nicholson. Hayes is probably on par with Mckay and older so we could use him for a few seasons. Nicholson is a good player on his day, one I'd love to see in a Rangers shirt, he will only improve with time too.
5.) 20 Jan 2017 09:31:27
Also Bluenose I see your point about getting a CB, DM, ST. however, without Mckay we'd have no cover incase Wallace ever gets injured again. If we are going forward with the 3-5-2 then we need to replace Mckay or need a backup LB. Aidan White from Barnsley could do the trick, he's fast and a decent defender who can play as a left mid.
6.) 20 Jan 2017 09:44:51
6M for a boy who hasn't played in europe and isn't an international regular who has 18mths on his contract is a great offer if true i'd like to tie him doen on a new deal hopefully get a crack at europe nxt season then we can start the bidding at 10m
7.) 20 Jan 2017 09:47:26
Dont want to sound negative bluenose but i hate the thought of warbs potentially having 8 mil to spend on players if we sold mckay for that. wouldn't go on players anyway, it would be used to pay for running costs i expect. Bad times
8.) 20 Jan 2017 09:59:16
I don't think we are in a position to knock that sort of money back I think there will be a lot of pressure from all side to sell if that sort of bid came in. Totally agree that we should hold onto him as a bid from the EPL could easily double knowing the ridiculous nature from there.
9.) 20 Jan 2017 12:43:37
£6million? I would bite their hand off.
10.) 20 Jan 2017 14:07:12
91bhoy it's simple. A player is worth what a club is willing to pay. If Leipzig want to pay £6m he's worth that. Still to see any £30m plus offers for Dembele that you lot seem to value him at 😂
11.) 20 Jan 2017 16:31:56
Jmaster. I'm not being disrespectful, just wondering were that valuation came from, as Leipzig, as far as I can see have not made any bid. I also see that Hull and Swansea are Supposedly interested but with a valuation of 1.5m, so i wasn't too far away.
Dembele has performed very well in league, cup, Europe and France u21 all season. If he continues that 20-30m is very achivable.
And for the record, we all know McKay is not worth 6mil 😂 But if a teams willing to pay that then fair play. Rangers certainly aren't in a position to knock back offers of a significant amount
12.) 20 Jan 2017 20:04:11
McKay is a full international. I've watched him the last two seasons and on his game he can be unplayable at times. I actually wouldn't accept £6m. Where does your valuation for dembele come from? Just because Brenda said it in an interview? I'd have McKay over Forrest or Roberts I'm sure you value them at more than £2m?
13.) 20 Jan 2017 22:12:59
Wow! I have no words for that! I can't really comment on McKay too much tbh, outwith games against Celtic I have only seen him a handful of times. The best he's played was in his last game against us, and he was your best player, but nothing special, just had a good game. A lot of my pals who see him every week even comment how erratic his form can be. So for these reasons alone, added with the fact he has no real experiance playing in a top league out with the last 5 months says to me he's not a 6mil player.
I've explained my reasons for Dembele, and that will be further proved when he will undoubtly get a France call up this year.
And for BM being better than Forrest and Roberts 😂😂😂 McKay would be lucky to make a Celtic bench. The gap - don't forget!
14.) 21 Jan 2017 05:40:20
If Dembele is called up for the full France squad and displaces the £60m rated Griezmann then I will happily accept his valuation at that point. He hasn't so far. The last game against your mob wasn't McKay's best performance. His performance in the semi last year wasn't bad either when he scored a bullet.
16 Jun 2016 06:27:54
DR reporting today that the Clint Hill deal will be finalized today and krakjar has signed. Hill I am shocked at as I have never heard of him and he played in aQPR side that leaked goals very easy even with top class keeper. Surely better players available in our budget than Hill. If Krankjar has signed and to join up on US tour why don't we know about it?
1.) 16 Jun 2016 06:33:31
We have not heard as he has not signed yet, gone are the days when McCoist would tell the world who we wanted then we would get none of them.
2.) 16 Jun 2016 07:24:21
Kranjcar can't sign until his deal with the cosmos is up on the 30th June.
3.) 16 Jun 2016 08:16:29
Blue nose, He will play for a year which will give the younger lads a share of his experience, he will then go into coaching. sounds like a great idea.
4.) 16 Jun 2016 09:08:53
I can't believe some people are saying they've never heard of Clint Hill. He's been a mainstay of championship level football for at least the last 10 years. Wondering if people even watch football when Rangers don't play. Anyway can one of the nay sayers remind me how old Davie weir was when he won the league at our club? Pretty sure he want far off 37. I recon Wilson and kiernan would really benefit from someone like him barking positional orders during a game. What do we think Bears?
5.) 16 Jun 2016 09:12:06
Also someone mentioned a top class keeper behind him . Surely this was a joke he had Rob Green behind him and that guys been stealing a wage for 15 years. Then he had that Brazilian nightmare for a year. I trust MW to sign who he thinks he needs.
6.) 16 Jun 2016 09:49:44
i trust in mw aswell but I think that we could with spendi bit of money in two areas, cb position and an all out goal scorer.
7.) 16 Jun 2016 09:56:52
Your not seriously saying Wes is better than either of those GKs? Brazilian nightmare. wondering if it is you that actually watches football.
8.) 16 Jun 2016 10:34:05
S*n is reporting a deal for Khalid Aucho is all but complete, are wee trying to match celtic for midfield numbers. all be it the boy looks a decent player from a few youtube clips (although a few youtube clips could make me look a player too)

Not bad for a Brazillian nightmare eh Blueshaun! Some folk need to watch football other than Rangers games. Clint Hill would be a fantastic signing, experienced CB with bags of knowledge. I'm a fan of Big Wes but can only dream of winning honours like that!
10.) 16 Jun 2016 12:36:16
I believe in military terms that's what's called getting blown out of the water.
11.) 16 Jun 2016 12:46:30
. but it still doesn't help clint hill because nothing can.
12.) 16 Jun 2016 12:51:55
I watched virtually all of the games the Brazilian played in the premier league that year he was at QPR and he was shocking I stand by my statement. He eventually got dropped for Green which says it all I think.
13.) 16 Jun 2016 12:55:57
And no I'm not saying Wes is better but Scottish football is around championship or league one level. My point was about Hill doing a job for us not that I wanted a discussion about a bloody Brazilian goalkeeper. I'll say it again I trust MW to make the signings he wants for his team .
14.) 16 Jun 2016 13:32:11
Then don't make ridiculous statements about a "Brazillian nightmare" .
So if the SPL is around the same standard as the championship what makes you think Clint Hill won't do a job considering he's had played at that standard for umpteen years!
I agree with you about MW signing players and we are all entitled to our opinions.
15.) 16 Jun 2016 14:45:06
Read my first post re Hill signing Scott.
16.) 16 Jun 2016 17:04:09
Clint Hill will be a good signing, has also played with Joey Barton in the past. V good no frills defender who can defend. By reputation is a very good pro and will add experience and defensive cover in what will be a testing season.
17.) 16 Jun 2016 17:22:34
My mistake Blueshaun, at least we agree on something 😁.
18.) 16 Jun 2016 17:53:57
Alright bluenoses I think Clint hill is a great option bags of experience and looks to me like the magic hat is building a solid back bone to the team. What's the news with Niko Kranjcar who I think would be a Great signing. But my favourite yet is Jordan Rossitier.
23 May 2016 19:52:30
It's on itv web site about new deal offered to Barton by burnley. It's also on burnley fans site him congratulating Alan Stubbs over his victory over Rangers.
1.) 23 May 2016 22:46:00
It's on BBC Scotland sports site that he has agreed terms with us mate.
2.) 23 May 2016 23:05:32
Team mate Andre Grey tweeting tonight saying he is gone.
3.) 23 May 2016 23:52:38
Hes coming up to Glasgow tomorrow lads to sign a 2 year contract and an option for a further year if he wants it, can't wait til he gets that blue shirt on.
4.) 24 May 2016 01:13:21
Joey signs for us gers absolute fantastic can't wait and shocked to get somebody off tht quality one things for sure from start to finish roll they sleeves up and let's get ready to rumble attitude we have badly missed tht in midfield bring on rodgers and celtic now fingers crossed fellow bears we get a solid no nonsence centre back who will spill blood sweat n tears and another striker greg stewart or kane hemmings would do me i have my doubts about jason cummings.
5.) 24 May 2016 11:02:47
I agree Barry, I wouldn't want Cummings any where near my club. He's a glory hunter and not a team player and I don't believe he'd put his head in where it hurts to make the difference for us.
6.) 24 May 2016 11:48:08
and joey barton is a team player What planet are you on.
7.) 24 May 2016 15:36:26
Dundee want 1.5 mil for Greg Stewart would rather we spend our money else where. Björn Sigurdarson and Adam Le Fondre are out of contract at wolves would rather one of them just random names i'm putting out there.
8.) 24 May 2016 15:53:11
Dth100, Think you'll find Barton is an ideal team player who makes other players play.
21 Jan 2017 20:33:47
All that possession and no shots on target until 80 mins is shocking and worthless. We are playing too many attack minded players out of position. Halliday not DM, McKay cuts inside too much, Waghorn needs to play through middle as does MOH and dodoo. Hodson much better than tav who is never a midfielder and today kiernan was missing at the goal. Lucky for us miller and hill along with keeper are performing.
1.) 21 Jan 2017 23:06:52
Blue Nose I agree to an extent but when you have a team sitting with 11 behind the ball and smothering the game even the best teams out there struggle to break it down . On the Hodson issue I've spoke many times on here of how much better than Tav he is as I believe ( even though he scored many a goal in the championship for us ) another badge kisser like Halliday ( not to that extreme though I may add ) and survives on past glories . We have a nucleus of a decent team here if the manager chooses to drop his favs and give other/ better players a chance .
2.) 22 Jan 2017 09:43:02
I agree Blackwood, we do have the nucleus of a good team and if Hyndman is given a first team slot instead of Holt since he looks far more industrious and a significantly better player then I believe that we will see more goals.
I also believe that Windass is a young player that can develop into a top class player as of course in McKay and with the right coaching MOH can equally blossom.
Halliday is not a Holding midfield player and playing him out of position is not doing either him or the team any favours. Perhaps when, as we hope, Rossiter is fully match fit we will solve both these issues.
I believe that we need to find a replacement for Miller and whether that is Waghorn or Dodoo I just don't know and while I would agree that Hodson is a better defender than Tavernier neither is of the quality we need to be the starting right back. We need a central defence and perhaps the young lad from Raith Rovers can be part of that but neither Wilson or Kiernan is the answer and while Wallace is a good left back he is not captain material. In essence, he is too nice a guy! We need a Souness, Butcher, Gough type, (it pains me to say it, but someone like Brown with a bit of dig and that will drive the team forward) .
But on the very positive note I am seeing some green shoots of recovery.
3.) 22 Jan 2017 16:41:10
Blackwood we've got to learn how to counter it tho other teams manage it every week
09 Jan 2017 11:32:40
Stuart downing being let go out on loan until summer. If boro willing to cover most of his wages then worth a shout.
1.) 09 Jan 2017 13:27:25
Decent player a few yrs ago but getting on a bit
2.) 09 Jan 2017 18:00:09
At 32 and with 35 England caps at his back, he's nowhere near past it and would be a great addition to our team. Wages rule it out, though.
3.) 09 Jan 2017 18:50:51
Stuart downing, good player but not a patch on our very own barrie mckay!
02 Jan 2017 08:27:29
I think the players who keep coming out in the press saying the gap is getting closer, we have proved we can beat Celtic etc are living in dream world, we can only just match st Johnstone at the moment and unless we get huge investment I am worried the gulf will stay for years to come. The tactical decisions being made by MW and DW are a joke which are leaving the team vulnerable all over park.
1.) 02 Jan 2017 11:02:33
It's only going to get wider, Celtic will spend big this January, Rodgers said he want to bed in new players before next seasons cl qual, that was our only chance to beat Celtic this year, as we don't have money to spend.
2.) 02 Jan 2017 11:29:47
Won't necessarily mean they will get stronger, they can't improve much more and sometimes teams that spend when on top actually go back the way, it's happened to us before.
3.) 02 Jan 2017 12:23:49
I think the delusion of your players and management is a big part of your problem! I mean uve got wee Barry McKay coming out this morning and saying yous could have gave us a doing on Saturday! I honestly couldn't believe what I was reading! A doing hahaha what total and utter nonsense! your reality is fighting Aberdeen and to a lesser extent hearts for 2nd. this there isn't much difference between the teams stuff is just embarrassing! The table doesn't lie and not just the points tally either, check the goal difference to! We are on a different level at the movement and a major reality check is needed from your players! A doing! Hahahaha.
4.) 02 Jan 2017 12:53:14
Disagree if you like I am just stating that teams don't always go from strength to strength just because they keep recruiting, maybe unlikely but they can't have a better start to a season anyway and that is a fact.
5.) 02 Jan 2017 12:55:03
Spending big means nothing. Do you honestly think they are as good as the Chris Sutton makes out?
6.) 02 Jan 2017 13:08:57
Joscro how is it a fact? We could have had a better start because we dropped 2 points at Inverness! Next season we'll be looking to remedy that lol. so it's not a fact we can't make a better start! And again your clutching at straws if u think us strengthening won't make us stronger! We will be stronger by the end of this window, make no mistake about that!
7.) 02 Jan 2017 13:16:45
Mckay was right, could have been convincing.
8.) 02 Jan 2017 13:35:39
Lads Celtic are looking at better calibre players now spending more Rodgers has clearly stated the phones been ringing from agents wanting there best prospects to come to Celtic to ply there trade as wee give them a great platform to show there class. the money wee get for van dijk will be rodgers January money. How many calls do u think yous have had let's be honest your lines probably cut off ps. Unlucky on Saturday good performance from McKay yous made a game of it take care all.
9.) 02 Jan 2017 13:42:28
Read my post iit's a fact won't get a better start next season's is what I said, what are you lot like?
10.) 02 Jan 2017 13:43:04
You don't know that for a fact about being stronger, make no mistake!
11.) 02 Jan 2017 13:50:49
What could have been more convincing? U didnae win 😂😂😂 we had double the shots and 3 times the amount of corners! U crack me up pal lol, it's gullible supporters like u that's part of your clubs problem! U can't see what's clearly in front of you!
12.) 02 Jan 2017 14:13:21
Doh we had chances to go more than 1up, is that not more convincing, sure you lot can see what's in front of your faces? MY e that's part of the problem.
13.) 02 Jan 2017 14:17:52
Joscro u really brighten up my day with your garbage! Read your own post back! U didn't say won't make better start u said can't! And I said yes we can because we dropped 2 daft points and next season we'll be looking to remedy that by taking maximum points! I know the thought of that hurts but try and not get urself to down in the dumps about it! Lol.
14.) 02 Jan 2017 14:25:33
You brighten mine with your garbage, you still don't get it do you?
And the chances of that happening are unlikely, bleeding hell.
15.) 02 Jan 2017 14:28:22
Hahahaha guttin myself here! Part of what problem? We don't have any problems! lol.
16.) 02 Jan 2017 14:47:03
At the present time Rodgers doesn't need to bring in any new players to stay ahead of us in the league. He is in the fortunate position that we were in historically where if he wants he can bring in one or two quality players, spend decent money and secure a player that is statistically more likely to be a success.
We, on the other hand, will continue to look for raging pro's or hope to pick up one or two gems from the lower leagues at little or no cost outlay. We might be lucky but recent history shows that this is unlikely.
Right now we still have a number of players that are no more than Championship level at best and unfortunately they are in key positions.
We don't have a leader on the Park, we run the risk of losing any young players, (like McKay), if someone comes in with a decent offer and despite his comments to the contrary we have yet to see any meaningful investment by King, in the quality that is needed, to take us forward never mind compete with Celtic.
We see criticism of Warburton but Celtic moved for Rodgers presumably because they saw Warburton as a threat and how can we expect to compete when he has both hands tied behind his back in the transfer market.
We need a quality full back, a quality centre back, two quality defensive midfield players, an attacking midfield player and a striker. Does anyone really see us signing even two quality players!
17.) 02 Jan 2017 14:50:34
Get what? Go on tell me what I don't get! And don't come on and say it would take to long to explain blah blah blah! Go on tell me what I don't get! I would really love to hear what u think I don't get! It would be some laugh! Haha.
31 Dec 2016 14:13:10
There better in every position and best team won. We have far too many poor players. No attacking threat no creative player McKay only one who can offer something. Tav kiernan Waghorn Halliday need shipped out. Manager tactically useless playing too many players out of position.
31 Dec 2016 13:34:48
We're worse with 3 at back than 4. None of them got positional sence or going with there men.
01 Jan 2017 18:10:29
DR reporting Jota going back to Brentford to play there as the manager wants him in team now he has sorted out his personal circumstances.
31 Dec 2016 08:38:07
If he scores goals which we lack who cares that he left when things were in a mess to make his future better financially.
19 Dec 2016 11:17:55
It's on grimsby fanzine sites that rangers are interested in Omar Bogle.
This is from a grimsby fan who told me.
19 Aug 2016 13:00:51
If he flew to Glasgow I would guess he failed a medical as any family discussion would have already been made before he wasted his time on a flight etc.
13 Jul 2016 08:52:24
I work in Leicester and amongst a lot of LCFC season ticket holders. They say Dodoo is a fantastic young player and can play across the front line and has an eye for goal. MW and FMP know the youth market and I think may have captured us some great youngsters that will fit in straight away ie: Rossister and potentially Dodoo.
07 Jan 2017 08:15:57
Lampard is clearly looking for a final swan song after his comments on tv last night . Maybe we could tempt him to 6 months clearly won't be for money just his love of the game.
31 Dec 2016 15:41:44
I don't think that's it's MW not being premier league standard as the championship down south is a harder league. I believe the fact is he has not got a portfolio of good managerial experience to be able to adapt tactics to suit matches or change them mid flow. Crooks should replace haliday, Hogson in for tav, give sendeross a chance in place of kiernan (can't be worse) . MW says it's a squad game yet he favours same old time after time even though they are very poor.
31 Dec 2016 14:18:40
I agree with first part but tav was rotten.
31 Dec 2016 13:22:48
Wilson left his man dembelle to win a ball two others were attacking.
31 Dec 2016 13:18:39
I agree. He is becoming liability. Crooks needs to be given a chance as does dodoo. Waghorn not been in it.
