SSN - Aberdeen say decision on future of DM will be made by the end of today.


1.) 07 Dec 2017 14:43:47
Think that means he is ours then

2.) 08 Dec 2017 09:23:22
Well DM will regret that for the rest of his days. Mcleish has to get the job with Murty as his assistant to learn the ropes. Alex Rae and Barry F as coaches. When Mcleish leaves Murty can move up with Rae, Fergie or Kenny Miller getting a coaching roll.
Keep the club in True Blue hands.

3.) 08 Dec 2017 10:14:08
hammerite-with those 3 you mention we will be going further backwards i am leaving murty out of that as i think he has done a good job under the conditions

4.) 08 Dec 2017 12:45:29
Truebluesotrue, why would Mcleish be such a bad appointment?
He did the same as WS, won trophies with a poorer squad than Walter, managed the national side narrowly missing out on a tournament, went south for pastures greener, probably did better than Walter down there winning promotion and a trophy before being offered other jobs.

Just because he's failed with Villa and others doesn't make him a bad or backward step. Let's face it if Walter said he'd come back for the remainder of the season how many complaints would there be.

With Rae and Ferguson i can accept to a point your scepticism as they're unproven but they are Rangers through and through and that passion in the background needs to be there to flow through the players.

hammerite- mcleish is a backward step he has done nothing worth talking about since he left rangers, probably the scotland stint, he was finished when he left rangers, i was at the matches at the end with him in charge when he did not have a clue how to set his teams up, he had that donkey andy watson with him he was also completely clueless, there was one match when arvaladze ran over to him and asked him what position he was supposed to play, mcleish just shrugged his shoulders and said nothing so shota just walked away shaking his head, thanks alex for the trophies and helicopter sunday and all that, its time to move on

Inside Fútbol saying that DM and TD not taking Aberdeen training this morning.


1.) 06 Dec 2017 10:59:31
**** TD would rather Barry Ferguson as assistant.

2.) 06 Dec 2017 12:29:00
Barry Ferguson, you're joking right? I just can't see what he would bring to the table.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 12:41:25
Would prefer Murty as his no2 with jj also involved

4.) 06 Dec 2017 13:06:56
DM will want his number 2 with him I hope Murty goes back to the young boys as we need a quality coach to keep working with and improving the youngsters we will have to wait and see if DM feels he needs more coaching staff but JJ and Ferguson could be good additions

5.) 06 Dec 2017 15:43:43
I hope dm and td stay where they are

So we get an interview with Mark Allen in the Daily Record, with some insight on his role and the manager recruitment process, rather than from the Club. pushing the contentious issues to the board. They are not shrouding themselves in glory, and the less they communicate, the more we speculate.


1.) 24 Dec 2017 08:23:56
Mark Allen says he gave the board a list within 2 days of Pedro’s sacking and Murty is the best they can come up with. King and co just go, sell up to someone who cares.

2.) 24 Dec 2017 10:28:09
Sounds to me like Allen is working his ticket out the door. 'it isn't my fault' is screaming out of his statement.
Merry Xmas to one and all.

3.) 25 Dec 2017 15:14:11
2 days? Well done Mark Allen, I came up with a list in 2 minutes, like yours though the board would have looked down the list containing the likes of big Sam etc and said well we can’t afford their company car never mind their wage, how about the Landlord from our local pub, his Sunday team are doing well and he’ll work for free pork scratchings? It’s becoming more embarrassing being a Rangers fan at the minute than driving down the main road in Glasgow on a Saturday afternoon with your windows down blaring out Steps greatest hits. Absolute circus, I wish Pedro was still here, thanks for all this Daily Record this is your doing.

Hi Bears - don't post much but read posts, especially when we are waiting on big news! Couple of comments
1. Obviously keen that the right manager is appointed and if that means taking time to do appropriate due diligence (which seems to have been lacking with PC appt), then so be it. Can't afford another mistake :- (
2. However, what has surprised me is that we don't have a shortlist until well after PC gone. I would have thought a succession plan for the most crucial role at the Club would have been a key task for any DoF. A list of candidates that is regularly reviewed for suitability, availability etc. And the board must have seen this coming? So not better prepared to move quickly?

Let's hope it's worth it!


1.) 10 Nov 2017 14:45:16
Blue belle I couldn’t agree more.

2.) 10 Nov 2017 15:37:31
Surely a board has to have faith in the manager 100% or not at all? What sort of message would it send to any manager if a board said they were backing you yet were drawing up a shortlist of replacements at the same time.

It's now fairly obvious that appointing Pedro was a mistake but to be fair to the board, they did back him in the transfer market and gave him plenty of chances to succeed or at least show signs of progress. Sadly there were none and the shambles of hi son last couple of games were the straw that broke the camels back.

I agree with Alex Rae's recent comments about their being a rangers way and a pride and integrity about the club. Plotting behind the scenes and secretly planning for our own managers replacement goes against that.

He was rightly sacked, no harm taking a couple of weeks to do the recruitment properly and thoroughly this time.

3.) 11 Nov 2017 08:12:05
Yes Nassau seen all of that but then again you could watch YouTube videos of sebo or other players that make them look exceptional finishers! Do it week in week out given the chance - this is rangers not a stop gap team you can score score a few goals against your Hamilton’s, Patrick’s etc and be a fist choice striker and ‘exceptional finisher’

4.) 11 Nov 2017 12:05:19
Said the exact same thing myself mate, it's been obvious to everyone in Scotland that it was just a matter of time until Pedro got the bullet. As soon as it was apparent he wasn't the man (7 months ago to most bears) then they should've started work on a shortlist of candidates to replace him. Poor organisation in my opinion, would've been perfect to have appointed a manager at the start of the international break to give him a couple of weeks with the squad.

5.) 11 Nov 2017 12:18:17
The board would have known he was on a limited amount of time to turn results around. If that's the situation then surely you say let's get a plan in place if needed. That's the sensible approach. The new manager should have been in place after the thistle game so he had time to get I think get settled and put his ideas across to the players

6.) 11 Nov 2017 13:37:44
That is exactly what Southampton do. They have a shortlist of managers and are constantly reviewing it. It has to be said it has been fairly successful for them in the last 5 or 6 years with the likes of Koeman and Poch. No harm in planning for worst case scenarios.

Have nothing but loathing for the man and how he conducts his businesses. But I can see that if he sells NUFC and is looking for a ‘reasonable’ priced way to promote his brand in Europe (i. e. in European football) then sponsorship of Rangers might be a good fit? Cash helps us get back in to Europe and he gets brand exposure at a cheapish price for a defined period? Not sure how I would feel about that, tho the investment would be welcome. But definitely no formal positions or ownership - wouldn’t trust him with that for a single moment!

Agree they should take a thorough approach. But my belief is that Aberdeen were approached earlier in the process and there was a Chairman’s agreement to defer any formalities until after the two games.
If you were in SM shoes, would you give up your manager to your closest rival ahead of two crucial games with them, when (if things had proceeded earlier) you would make yourself manager-less wand give away any poss advantage?
No, I think smart move would be to say yes, when we are ready to OK an approach and if you have the cash.
We’ll see.

AVB has resigned from Shanghai (Telegraph online) . Offered one year extension but turned it down. Says he wants to take an extended break from football and also quoted as saying he didn’t want to work in England again (was sounded out for Everton) . Doesn’t sound like he is getting on a plane to Glasgow anytime soon, but who knows! We’ve heard just about everything and everybody in the past 5 weeks.
