Guys we have been looking at a young attacking mid in Spain on loan (not jota) but his parent club wanted us to pay half his wages and this was a little too much for us so it's off at present.


1.) 27 Dec 2016 17:39:08
Sergi Canos? Seems like a great wee player, think we are still waiting on a decision from him to see if he wants to come up north on loan.

2.) 28 Dec 2016 08:44:35
It's not Canos as he would currently be playing in Spain and belongs to a prem team!

3.) 28 Dec 2016 16:11:07
Whats the young players name we are trying to get bluegenius?



20 Jul 2016 12:39:12
Online rumour we are looking at ivica oli. 36 and free.


1.) 20 Jul 2016 13:07:22
Aston villa and Newcastle apparently interested in him as well. Would you want him at Ibrox?

2.) 20 Jul 2016 13:22:50
Certainly fits 1 of the age brackets we are currently shopping in.

3.) 20 Jul 2016 13:44:47
He's retired lol.

4.) 20 Jul 2016 14:10:55
Announced his international retirement in March and then announced he would be retiring from club football to take on youth coaching role at Hamburg shortly after.

5.) 20 Jul 2016 19:17:18
Certainly hope not 2 goals for hamburg last season. We already have Kenny up top as the veteran we don't need another.



26 Jun 2016 02:21:16
Hey lads,

My wee source is telling md that when The hat and the squad leave for America on Monday big Davie Weir is staying as our next possible signing is coming up on Monday to see the set up!


1.) 26 Jun 2016 13:25:55
I'd like to think weir will go and mc p will stay was hoping weir would be taking training with the defenders any new names being mentioned today hope we could be waiting on the Northern Ireland plane landing take a few of they players they played well.

2.) 26 Jun 2016 14:27:33
Humey like who exactly lol would cost a fair bob.

3.) 26 Jun 2016 14:31:46
I know but it might be worth looking to see who's out of contract and go from there is evens not out contract Jonny.

4.) 26 Jun 2016 16:23:03
Might be totally coincidental but I seen Weir and McParland at Gretna services yesterday. Don't think they were getting married though lol. Going on a spying mission or having talks with someone?

5.) 26 Jun 2016 17:04:48
Both Weir and mcparland staying. I believe they were down south looking at someone but I didn't hear their exact location. May have been Brighton area.

6.) 26 Jun 2016 21:00:11
Or could have been anywhere else in England or the Scottish border along with that thinking.

7.) 27 Jun 2016 08:10:29
Scott I don't mean as he was at Gretna. I was party to a conversation where MW himself said Big Davie was travelling back up but I couldn't make out where from but he may have said Brighton as that is what it sounded like.

8.) 27 Jun 2016 16:40:45
Well Weir is on the plane so not staying behind source wrong Bluegenius.



18 Jun 2016 19:23:38
Lads I told u ages ago we were signing a defender who appeared in cup final for Palace!


1.) 18 Jun 2016 20:36:48
Another excellent signing he will be he is a good player strong defender but also quick so will fit perfect along side hill and can also play right back. great signing again so happy with this transfer window😃.

2.) 18 Jun 2016 21:49:12
Sorry who is the new signing.

3.) 19 Jun 2016 09:45:32
I believe I started going on about mariappa last week gents! Would be a terrific signing! Far better defender than taylor.

4.) 19 Jun 2016 11:03:13
No - one yet bluebear. Mariappa up for talks. I heard this was in the pipeline a week or 2 after fa cup final and posted it here.

5.) 19 Jun 2016 12:02:53
Good player I posted on here donkeys ago about this. Was the first post of its kind.

6.) 19 Jun 2016 12:04:35
Spot on Bluegenius remember you saying it.

7.) 18 Jun 2016 20:40:08
From the players mouth 2night he has not got anything lined up. Although he could be playing matters down.

8.) 19 Jun 2016 00:35:33
I love how excited we are all getting. Let's be honest these players couldn't lace a 9 in a row boot but from where we have came from and where we are going, it's exactly the type of signings we need.

I never thought we could win the league going straight up, but I'm starting to believe it's going to happen. We are signing the best available on frees. Warburton has proved he has something in the magic hat. Just Niko, cover for Lb and decent striker and I'd say we are finished. could the possible loanees be strikers?

9.) 20 Jun 2016 11:13:01
we will never get anywhere the 9 in a row team again!

but i do agree we are going in the right direction not sure about the loanees being the strikers though as i thinkn we will be in the market to buy one and its still early doors now.



01 Jun 2016 16:45:03
My source close to MW has advised me 2 things today.
Firstly Tav was not only struggling with injury in cup final but had been carrying a knock for weeks. MW has a few regrets about how small his pool of players has been.
Secondly we are looking at a defender from Crystal Palace and believes he made an appearance in FA cup final.


1.) 01 Jun 2016 17:09:46
I still rate Tav had a bad game would like to see MW try him as RW or RM think he'd excel in those positions still think he has a bright future at the club.

2.) 01 Jun 2016 17:16:21
Could possibly be mariapa who came on as sub for scott dann.

3.) 01 Jun 2016 17:32:15
Your source is such a tease, no name or anything.

4.) 01 Jun 2016 19:16:23
I thought Mariappa or Delaney.

5.) 02 Jun 2016 10:20:46
Mariappa would be a good addition.

Looking into the next season and changes affot. Who would be everyone's top 3 players to get rid?



Having said this I am also looking forward to seeing the effect a new manager has on everyone and will probably change my mind on at least one.


1.) 20 Mar 2017 17:05:03
I would add Halliday with that group bluegenius.

2.) 20 Mar 2017 17:19:00
Keirnan, Keirnan and Keirnan

3.) 20 Mar 2017 17:22:09

4.) 20 Mar 2017 17:43:38
Forgot about keirnan stu lol.

5.) 20 Mar 2017 19:02:12
It would be impossible to pick just three players to leave. better asking who we would keep then it would be realistic to find three players.

6.) 20 Mar 2017 20:30:43
Halliday kiernen senderos forrister ohalleren windass and would put dodoo out on loan

7.) 20 Mar 2017 21:20:49
O, Halloran


Its really hard to narrow it down to 3

8.) 20 Mar 2017 22:08:52

9.) 21 Mar 2017 02:37:26
Forrester has ability, whether he has the right attitude is the question. I thin we can take it as read that Senderos will go and I would add Kiernan to the list. Perhaps Warburton will take him and Halliday to Forrest, Halliday would be at the top of my departure list!

10.) 21 Mar 2017 11:08:30
Forrester (if he doesn't get his nasty side back)
Possibly crooks if he isn't up for coming back and winning over pedro

Sign weiss, 2 centre backs, a defensive midfielder, a replacement for hyndman and finally a striker

11.) 21 Mar 2017 11:09:54
Personally I would let Pedro decide (and he will)

12.) 21 Mar 2017 11:10:51
I would get rid of a lot more if possible


There are certain other players who i might consider if the right offer came in


We need a better standard of player for next season

13.) 21 Mar 2017 11:11:37
Aye bluey let's let pedro decide, we can only hope he gets it right.

14.) 21 Mar 2017 11:25:57
Dodoo, ohalloran, forrester and kiernan

15.) 21 Mar 2017 11:29:51
Kiernan, Senderos and O'Halloran. I think Pedro might get something out of Halliday as a squad player, but the other three are complete duds.

16.) 21 Mar 2017 11:24:18
Why would you want rid of windass? When he plays it's obvious he has more ability than nearly the rest of the squad combined and he's not afraid to get stuck in like some guys like dodoo.



04 Mar 2017 22:58:56
The big thing I noticed today was our effectiveness and movement at corners. What a change.


1.) 05 Mar 2017 00:35:11
Hamilton were poor defensively but we did try to mix it up which was refreshing to see! Although it should have happened all season

2.) 04 Mar 2017 23:43:04
We were more direct in general, Bluegenius, and as I've said so many times before, the stats that Warburton was so fond of were actually his problem. His possession stats were through the roof but with no end product. Now the possession stat is falling game by game because we're having more shots, more crosses, which create goals but naturally lead to less possession. Possession is totally meaningless. Goals count, nothing else.

3.) 05 Mar 2017 08:53:58
I was glad that Toral put in a great second half performance, but the midfield is also a HUGE area of concern. As much as i hate to say this, Broonie is going to bully them off the ball with ease. For me we have to put Halliday in for Holt against the tic for that little extra steel. I know he has been playing really crap recently. But i believe if you have both him and Toral offering protection the to defense and then Hyndman or Forrester offering the spark, we could get a result

4.) 05 Mar 2017 10:06:11
I wouldn't have Halliday anywhere near the team. Holt is not the answer for next season but he is young enough to improve. Halliday is a waste of a jersey, has a chip on his shoulder and will hopefully not be seen again in a Rangers jersey unless there is a fundamental change of attitude.

5.) 05 Mar 2017 10:32:36
Hey TOMUSA - i get your point, although I don't know where you have got the whole 'chip on shoulder' situation. He hasn't been playing well, but he has been playing out of position which has been obvious. Toral is also being deployed in that role right now, but with the mid 3 of Toral, Hyndman (who are 21 and 20 respectively) and the pint sized holt, We would be overrun in a heartbeat and kenny would be spending most of his time in the mid trying to dig in and help out. Halliday offers a little more bite and can offer a 'little' more experience in the middle of the park.

6.) 05 Mar 2017 10:53:55
I agree with you Teddy that if our midfield tries to battle it out with Brown we will lose but I also agree with TOMUSA in that Halliday is not the answer. He has played dreadfully for most of the season and was totally outplayed by Brown when we've played them this season. I'd stick with the current three but put Tav in with them and Hodson in at RB) . I'd also put McKay in midfield with them and Miller up front on his own. We're away to them so defend for our lives (nearly impossible for us I know! ) and either sneak a draw or a lucky win. If we try to match them reckon we"ll get hammered



01 Mar 2017 13:30:16
Good afternoon Gents,

I would firstly like to voice my anger at Clint Hill.
"3rd would represent a successful season"?
That statement is unacceptable from anyone at Ibrox when we have held second whilst having a poor season.
They should be fighting tooth and nail to get back there and solidify 2nd and close the gap to first as best they can. Nothing less is acceptable.

Now most people here are crying out for 4-4-2 and I would like to see us give it a go but my concern is we do not have the midfield players for this. We need at least one dynamic, defensive mid to support our 2 CB's. There is NO-ONE in our squad who can do this to an acceptable level.
Looking at our squad and our frailties I think 3-5-2/ 3-4-1-2 is our best option.

3 CB's - One playing slightly in front of 2 (almost CDM) trying to break play up early if being attacked centrally and dropping back to cover spaces if we are attacked on wing and CB's drawn wide.

Our wing backs Could sit in more centrally with 2 CM's forming a barrier of 4 in front of CB's when not in possession but going wide when we get ball.

1 AM in free role behind strikers

2 strikers!

E. G


Hill Wilson

Tav Halliday Hyndman Wallace


Garner Miller.


1.) 01 Mar 2017 15:07:51
Like your optimism blue genius and your dynamic thoughts on how game should be played. GENIUS I'm contacting my mate who does the odds for William Hill to install you as favourite for managers post

2.) 01 Mar 2017 15:54:20
Hill meant in regards to finishing in a Europa spot that 3rd is no different than 2nd in terms of where we start the qualifyers.

3.) 01 Mar 2017 16:37:53
bluedrama, think your mate will have him at long odds, after all that dynamic thinking and then has Halliday in his line up.

4.) 01 Mar 2017 17:10:03
Definate rangeken. Football is matter of opinions and I would not have Kieran or Halliday near the team. It shows the options we have. Why Warburton never addressed defence is beyond me.

5.) 01 Mar 2017 17:36:37
Govanite I did get his point but you have to stand up and say 3rd is unacceptable no matter what. 2nd is bad enough for Rangers!
Rangeken I understand your doubt over my team selection but I was not meaning the particular players just giving an example of how they should set out. Having said that Kiernan I have named 3 out of our 4 centre backs we have and Kiernan is one of the better passers hence him being at front.
As for Halliday well I would also have dropped him but I do sympathise with him as he is never a CDM and has been made nervous by being pushed into that position. When he was further forward the other night he looked better (still not the best tho) .

6.) 01 Mar 2017 19:42:21
You destroy your argument by putting Halliday in your team! That is like playing with then men!

7.) 01 Mar 2017 19:28:36
When a player comes out and says 3rd place is successful, you now have the reason we are in 3rd. Not one player from the past would ever think 3rd is good enough never mind make a statement claiming this. Total lack of any kind of leadership why is the ream captain allowing player to think this no way would previous captains BF, RG, TB let this happen Shambles



18 Feb 2017 15:36:14
If anyone still thinks we should have kept Barton. They should just watch his antics today. Embarrassing.


1.) 18 Feb 2017 19:11:11
As did big Moussa as he walked off the pitch in Barcelona. Embarrassing.

2.) 18 Feb 2017 22:54:58
Just seen Barton incident absolute disgrace the man is embarrassing.

3.) 19 Feb 2017 11:18:49
Yup, didn't take him too long eh? True colours, how many times will this thug get away with senseless behaviour until no one gives him a job. Good riddance.



11 Feb 2017 12:09:56
I like big Davie Weir. Thought he was a great player for us.
But where is everyone getting the idea he is a true blue etc? Talking about him like a lifelong supporter or someone who has always been tied to the club like Walter Smith or Greig?
I'm not trying to slate him just wonderingwhy everyone thinks his loyalty to Rangers is so strong.


1.) 11 Feb 2017 13:28:52
Always admired big Davie when we entered administration and he happily left the club taking himself off the wage bill.

So far we've had the Rangers PR spin on events and personally I won't slate DW until I've heard his side of the story.

Firstly - Welcome 72Coop. Glad to have you on board. Whether I believe your rumour or not isn't important I'm just glad to have another fellow bluenose to chat with.
However I for one DO believe you as the limited info makes it pointless to post unless true.

It's really a win-win situation. We keep him = Maintain a good young player. He goes = Tidy bit of business.

Eck! You claim people are becoming hysteric when they are merely showing a bit of excitement/ optimism. Then wonder why people are defending their stance.
We are fully aware of his age and experience however he is another option in 2 areas we are struggling.

25 Jan 2017 16:22:45
Wee-Eck maybe you should chill. He is a good player who has a big future in the game if all goes well. One of the highest regarded young defenders in the prem league.
i'm not saying he gets a free role or the captaincy. Besides how many first team games did Dom Ball play before he came to us and helped us?
Some people are never happy!

Now I'm not saying we are bringing any of these players or we are even linked but these 3 players have previously been signed by Pedro and are now free in summer. Also 3 needed positions.

Rashid Sumaila - CB
Rubair Rodriguez - CDM
Krisztian Nemeth - ST
