Two questions for the ed's or anyone in the know please. Firstly I heard Waghorn wants away? Any truth we are looking at a midfielder called Lansbury. Just 2 things I overheard at a sportsmans dinner at the weekend.


{Ed039's Note - Bristol City are interested in Waghorn and I don't think we could afford the fee for Henri Lansbury)

1.) 09 Nov 2016 12:55:08
Is Lansbury not a free next summer?

{Ed039's Note - He is, I assumed we were talking about the coming transfer window and not the one after)

2.) 09 Nov 2016 14:07:02
I would look at stevie Mallan and Jason cummings in January both goal threats wouldn't break the bank. henri lansbury would be a great signing surprised he still at forest and not the premier league though.

3.) 09 Nov 2016 14:10:53
heard waggy has fell out with warburton.

4.) 09 Nov 2016 15:07:29
Henri Lansbury would be a cracking signing, would also like to see Ali Crawford at Rangers think he will be superb in the future.

5.) 09 Nov 2016 16:35:55
don't know Lansbury but not Cummings I don't think he is what we need.
I can't see us signing anyone that isn't on a free this transfer window due to running at a loss this season.
but if we are to get people in I mean I know I've not seen him in a while but bougy can't be worse than what we have I said it in the summer we get him for free and won't cost a lot on wages he wants to be here and is much better that Kiernan and not as old as clint hill so I think he is worth a shot.
would also like kyle bartley back at rangers he was a good solid no nonsense defender. (plus he went right through scott brown) I don't think he would cost a lot the last I heard he was at leeds I think!

6.) 09 Nov 2016 17:47:18
I think kiernan get a hard ride tbh, if we are signing anyone that plays with Leeds it's got to pontius jansson (sp)! also the young boy souttar from hearts and James Jones from Kilmarnock are going to be stars imo.

7.) 09 Nov 2016 17:57:02
More in need of Angela Lansbury right now me thinks! Get to the bottom of this Ashley fiasco.

8.) 10 Nov 2016 03:25:48
the club is running low on cash and your solution is someone who made a tackle ona rival player, lol great idea for progression, and lovely mindset you have in life.

anyway when we get second, how many rounds do we we have to qualify for euro? i have heard 3? thts 6 games think of the fatigue that might set in, hopefully its just the two rounds.



18 Dec 2015 18:48:49
Probably just pub talk, that's where I heard it, but was told we were interested in Sam Byram. Guy who told me said Leeds had turned down a 4m offer 18 months ago but apparently the lad is free in the summer having refused a new contract.


1.) 18 Dec 2015 19:55:59
Seems like pub talk and that's it to be honest. The kid is worth 3-4mil, leeds thought they could get more I guess or secure him on another contract. Byram has other ideas though by rejecting a contract and most likely leaving for a better side in the summer.

2.) 20 Dec 2015 09:09:02
Sam Byram is a fantastic talent, I think he will more likely be moving to the EPL not up here, as much as I would love it to be true.

Not a conspiracy theorist by nature but find it strange Red Bull are linked with investing or buying us and we have a friendly with RB Leipzig. I can't see RB investing without full control and find it hard to believe our current board would just walk away.
We need a fans rep. on the board the heralded transparency is looking pretty blurred to me right now.

I see only positives, for us, from Red Bull investment Ashley's millions will not phase them. It's not like I want to see huge investment in the team. Would much prefer to see a progressive improvement with investment in youth. Surely the odd £1 million pound player ain't to much to ask for.

Don't get me wrong second in the league was what I hoped for, though much closer to Celtic, well DK said he would invest more if we made Europe let's see.


1.) 16 Jan 2017 11:20:42
This rumour only materialised when the fixture was announced. No the other way about. I'd be very surprised if Red Bull invested in a business model where they'll see no financial returns from either European football or merchandising.

2.) 16 Jan 2017 12:19:23
There must be somthing in it somewhere, there is something in it advertising for red bull, can't see them wanting to get too heavily involved although we can dream

YOu do realise RB Rangers will be a brand new club no history no titles start from scratch . because that's the way red bull want to work it. as i understand it. but may be wrong

5.) 16 Jan 2017 18:22:30
@blue Pete - I think the RB link is wishful thinking. Can't see it myself

6.) 17 Jan 2017 03:49:17
You can't just erase a clubs history and start from scratch. If that was the case and they wanted us to start as a new club then surely it would be back to the 3rd div if we get a license to play as new club. It would be like any other takeover johny G, history, team, club, stadium the same, just a new owner and board.



10 Dec 2016 19:05:50
First home game I've missed (WORK) great we won but 1 win against Hearts and 1 against Aberdeen does not make us even close to the finished article. Apart from 4 crazy defensive mistakes I thought we were the better team at Tynecastle. Onwards and Upwards guys and my bets for us to finish second are looking better and better :) .


1.) 12 Dec 2016 08:27:56
Bluepete, It was possibly the worst performance ever from a Gers side and they dominated us!



04 Dec 2016 07:40:19
I really don't know where all this doom and gloom, on here, is coming from. Warbs has gone from the magic hat to the mad hatter. What short memories, for long periods of last season we were very poor, and now we expect to be outplaying Barcelona.

I thought we would finish second in a tough fight with Hearts and Aberdeen, in fact I have 3 bets in one way or another on it. Did I think we would be much closer to Celtic? YES, but let's be honest and admit they have moved on.


1.) 04 Dec 2016 12:36:17
Totally agree, let's see how close we are by the end of the season. i'm positive Warburton is the right man for the job and will prove his critics wrong.



11 Nov 2016 20:26:34
I for one never thought we would win the league this year. I did however think we would be much better than we are, bye and large our signings have not been as good as hoped. Pretty obvious Warbs took a chance on some players, with injury histories, that has not, so far, worked. January will be interesting.


1.) 14 Nov 2016 13:20:45
i for one do not think January will be interesting as we have no money and won't bring in anyone of real quality.
boughy and bartley would top my list for January but that's just my opinion.



24 Oct 2016 08:33:20
Celtic were the better team yesterday, so fair play to them and grats. What made it far worse for us was the number of times we gave away the ball way too easily. Yes Celtic were pressing but still way too many short passes going to Celtic. Now for a team that relies a lot on possession that's suicide, not sure if it was nerves or whatever very disappointing though.


1.) 24 Oct 2016 21:53:09
Yeah were far superior and it's worrying that the game was so one sided. They dominated from start to finish and for me yesterday showed just how many of our players aren't good enough. Holt is a decent player however he is too lightweight and was easily brushed off the ball, Halliday tried but Brown controlled the midfield, Dodoo didn't look as though he fancied it when he was brought on and I didn't see the point of bringing on Garner or Waghorn when we were creating nothing. At least O Halloran has pace and could have ran at them. Feel Warburton played right into their hands yesterday and as a result Gordon had nothing to do.

Whatever the official name of the stadium becomes it will always be Ibrox to us.

Not a lawyer either but work with a couple. If Lambias and Leech were signatories of the deal then we may have a case. Purely because of the SFA rules on influence. The case would be unlikely to succeed unless they were still employed by Ashley at the time. The actual wording of the agreement is crucial too apparently.

King has played a LOT of first team football for the jam tarts no way he's coming unless we buy if we like what we see.

Rossiter was growing nicely into that position, until his calf injury, 11 games he's missed now just hope he's back soon.

Billyb try partition walls they are softer and when you put a hole in one plasterboard is cheap.

1. agreed but I for one never thought we would finish ahead of Celtic this year

2. If we do get Europe i believe we would see investment in the team.

3. See answer 2 and I think we will invest a little in Jam.

4. Agreed tough job and to play how he wants we need far better, technical, players.

5. DK is the only show in town and at least he cares.

6. I wasn't born till the 80's but I see light from 2 years ago almost blinding light.

7. Even our enemies must admit we have been unlucky with injuries, with some of our signings this is partly self inflicted, Rossiter for one has been sorely missed.

I truly believe we can still finish second.

Rossiter, when fit, must play, Windass needs a run of games, Kranjcar
is with out a doubt our most creative midfielder if he was not as slow as me he'd be first on the team sheet.

I for one will be very happy with second DELIGHED with a close second.

We just have to accept there are some posters on here who re negative no matter what. Lescott won the EPL winners medal has played for our noisy neighbours national team and he is useless, Senderos was so bad he played 5 years for that mickey mouse team Arsenal, and we have no money brigade (we all know money is tight and may be for some years) we offer over! m for Garner but we ain't paying all the money up front . While everyone is entitled to o[pinions you have to wonder if some on here really are supporters. By the way completely ignore the 3 players I mentioned insert any p;layer same old same.
