On Sky Sports Regional Paper Talk section the and the Reading Post is linking us with Reading midfielder Liam Kelly. Anyone heard anything about this?


{Ed039's Note - Yes he is a player Warburton likes, he is out of contract at the end of the season and could move under the same circumstances that Rossiter and Dodoo moved)

1.) 16 Nov 2016 20:41:42
Taking into account that frank lampard is now almost at the very end of his career, with his next move obviously not going to be money motivated, do you think there's any chance at all that we could sign frank lampard?

2.) 16 Nov 2016 21:57:32
Nope. And for the reason you put at the beginning of your post. And cash too. Would anyone be willing to take 5% of previous earnings? That being said, you would think that MW will still be looking for the experience in midfield that he was looking for when he signed JB and NK.

Personally, I don't want Rangers to be the vehicle for players to finish illustrious careers. I'd rather it was the club where they started them.

3.) 17 Nov 2016 11:24:02
why do we need a midfielder?
only areas I think we are weak is defence and attack we need a centre back with pace and a poacher to bang the goals in.
if warbs goes for more middle of the park player to sit on the bench because he only plays three in there then sum1 needs to give him a slap.

4.) 17 Nov 2016 11:37:00
Would obviously love Lampard in the team but there's no chance he'll come up here. He'll become a Sky Sports pundit and join up with Carra, Neville, Henry no doubt.

5.) 19 Nov 2016 15:01:47
I see the comments about Red Bull Teams being universally hated, well from what I can see, in today's Scotland, we are universally hated anyway so if we get a sponsor that brings us back to the glory days why not. Personally I don't give a proverbial about the supporters of other Scottish Teams especially those that play in Green!

Neither were top of my list, but the more I read and think about Wilson as DoF and Caixinha as Gaffer, the more optimistic I feel about the future. Hope we get these two in quickly now, and can build for next season well in advance. Let's give the new staff our full support, after all


1.) 03 Mar 2017 09:04:06
No matter who comes in we must give them our full support. It will take time to improve the team so let's have patience. Rome was not built in a day so let's back the boards judgement on whoever they select.

2.) 03 Mar 2017 14:06:39
I'll support whoever comes in but it seems over complicated for me. The guy has to get used to our culture, weather, grub etc. Tommy Wright proved himself the other night, got his subs, tactics spot on and nearly won the game. I think we're making a mistake if we don't try and get Wright in.

3.) 03 Mar 2017 14:09:34
put it this way we have been told there is money there for summer transfers.
but we are never told how much and to be honest i don't think it will be a lot



16 Feb 2017 16:02:22
Think we need to get Big Eck signed on as DoF asap, to guide the inexperienced Murty and to lay down foundations and plans on the build up to summer. Hopefully that would help us secure 2nd place, and in the meantime the board should be doing everything they can to persuade De Boer to come in as soon as this season finishes.


1.) 16 Feb 2017 23:56:30
Don't get that Alex McLeish has the capability or record to be DOF. For a number of reasons, we cannot spend our way out of this - a DOF needs to sort and drive value from the academy, sensibly recruitment with a half an eye to sell on and at the same time equiping the team to compete as we grow by supporting a first team coach - DOF is way different to manager so (much as he delivered) why McLeish?

2.) 18 Feb 2017 15:54:45
Our CEO has said that we are going with a DoF, so we should be looking to secure the best. That surely rules our Macleish. The guy at Southampton, (Wilson), the guy at Spurs, (Mitchell), and the guys at Watford and Huddersfield are all well respected as a DoF, what has Macleish done in the game after he left Rangers and what qualifications has he to do the DoF job?

The DoF will also presumably have a say as to who comes in as Manager and certainly the first two that I have mentioned will know which managers in the game work well within that structure.

If we are going down this route with that quality then we will need investment and I can't see us making such an appointment if serious funding will not be there for the new management team.



11 Feb 2017 12:31:58
Didn't see this happening in what seems a rushed, unplanned manner. Can't change it now so must look forward. Think now is the time to be ambitious and positive, and bring in a manager who is of a high calibre. For me the only candidates that excite me are De Boer and Souness. Wouldn't have McInnes, Wright, O'Neill, or Eck, none of them would bring positive change in my opinion.


1.) 11 Feb 2017 13:28:18
Gary Rowett instead of Souness. Overall agreed but.

2.) 11 Feb 2017 14:00:41
Keep on hearing Souness, does nobody watch Sky Sports, the man is clearly not well.
Also the bring back Walter brigade just let the man enjoy his retirement Christ The Rangers job aged the two of them!
Unsure who to go for though!

3.) 11 Feb 2017 14:05:49
Gary Rowett 👍

4.) 11 Feb 2017 14:14:01
Bongo, how about garry monk at leeds utd or david wagner at huddersfield? I'd also throw in another name that's not been mentioned, nigel pearson! What you think mate? We need to think out the box to all the usual suspects! Another 3 that have been mentioned that i'd have as our next manager are, frank de boer, gio van bronckhurst and jurgen klinsmann!

5.) 11 Feb 2017 14:44:42
Super cooper

Unsure about the first 3 Rangers I think the Rangers job would be to big for them
De Boer maybe, only thing I do know is Billy Davie's no Way.
I'd be raging if he got it .
Tomorrow we'll need to get right behind every one associated with our club give the board a round of applause and I hope yer pal MOH gets a game and none if this 60 min subs if you need to sub after 20 min do it if it's not working .

Come on the Famous Glasgow Rangers!

6.) 11 Feb 2017 14:44:50
Superccoop I have no idea who it will be but 1 thing is certain it will not be anyone from another club you simply cannot afford the compensation.
But then again you guys never live in the real world.

7.) 11 Feb 2017 21:13:03
Supercoop I suggested 'Take no shit' Pearson some weeks agao and I still think he'd be a great shout. He's the man who turned Leicester City round and made them what they are - England's champions.



09 Feb 2017 10:37:10
I think we have all turned very quickly (maybe too quickly) on MW, when you consider progress on targets:

League - On track for European Qual. Place
Betfred Cup - Was a matter of when do we play Celtic, if we meet in the final we still go out.
Scottish Cup - Still in

I am with fans who are losing patience though, particularly after most recent interview claiming dropped points were due to "randomness". That is completely unacceptable, basically saying every game's a lottery and we shouldn't expect to win or draw or lose. That must change, because we do expect to win, and he must deliver wins far more consistently.

We can't and won't replace him with a better manager. I've seen plenty of suggestions and all are either not feasible or not good enough. We should give the team and manager our support until the end of the season and make decisions then.


1.) 10 Feb 2017 00:21:05
I'll rephrase that for you BlueIsTheColour! Not we've all turned against mark warburton! Some of you have turned against mark warburton, far too early IMO! I've always said to wait, and re-evaluate everything at the end of the season! He'll be here until the end of the season, minimum anyway! So fans should get that into their heads and at least support the manager and the team until the end of the season! Then find out where we are and what we do! Warburton AIN'T going anywhere until maybe the end of the season!



14 Dec 2016 15:55:33
Dominic Solanke big Chelsea U23 striker would be a decent loan move. He's out of contract next summer but doubt we'd be able to get him on a permanent contract, would need Chelsea to pay a good chunk of his wages.


1.) 15 Dec 2016 08:36:58
I don't see Conte rating the SPL very highly in all honesty. I would also expect Warbs getting a forward who can play in multiple positions as he clearly adores Garner. I personally think that Hardie should be the back up for Garner.

2.) 16 Dec 2016 09:18:35
Hardie has struggled with St Mirren in the championship so what makes you think he could do anything in the premiership?

Lansbury would be a fantastic signing, but if we only get two in I'd rather see a CB and a striker. Might be slightly controversial at the moment with his current form but I think McKay will become a fantastic no. 10 for us and should be given a free role in the centre of the park.

I get what you're saying, but there's no guarantee he'll be loaned out to a team that are "good at development". What we need to do is prove that we are! If he has the potential that is hyped, he SHOULD be able and allowed to break into the first team at Ibrox in the next couple of seasons. That's what should persuade him to stay.

Would love to see him back, and he obviously still has the Gers in his heart. Issue is he's still got a couple years left to run on what I'd assume is a hefty contract, so he would not come cheap.

Would take any of Davis, Adam, Jelavic, Weiss back in a heartbeat. Would also consider Boughy or Bartley purely because we're desperate for a CB, but hope PC has a better shortlist!

Frustratedbear - Sergio Ramos is 6ft, he doesn't lose many battles. How tall does a CB need to be?

Murty's back to his original role with U20's, and I believe it's not an assistant manager position it's a "club assistant" I think Pedro called it. Don't think we need someone with great experience because it's not a huge role, just need someone who knows Rangers, knows the league, and will bridge a gap between the current staff and Rangers' culture and history.
