With my one and only bit of Info, Goldson, now looking likely. Some other rumour/ news/ gossip my dad and a couple of his friends just back from London. They were talking about Terry maybe coming to us and a guy from Elite something overheard and told them he was from Terry's agents and they had so far had no contact.
On a more important note with so many of you disagreeing I am crap at football I spoke to my old Sunday team coach. He went white twitched a little and said"You have more chance of playing for Rangers". So I'm sending my C. V. to S. G. and I'm younger than McAuley.




23 May 2018 12:55:35
Connor Goldson you heard it here first or maybe not and its been in the papers we offered £1.5m and was rejected. Friend on the phone saying we are back in with £2.5m offer he won't give his source but swears its not the media. We are meeting up on Saturday so I'll get him drunk and find out more.


1.) 23 May 2018 13:08:32
Connor goldson looks a good player if we could partner him with bartley or burke then that would be good business terrific business would be getting skrtel to partner him

2.) 23 May 2018 13:47:45
I really don't think we should be taking a risk on Connor Goldson, barely played in 2 season and had heart problems. if on a free then maybe but i wouldn't like to see us wasting millions on someone unproven in recent years and major injury concerns

3.) 23 May 2018 13:54:50
Played Two games for an average Brighton team last year and has a heart problem. Could be a huge risk and he is not even first pick CH at Brighton

4.) 23 May 2018 15:31:25
Can't get a game a Brighton then Burke can't get a game at West Ham and is allowed to just leave yet these are meant to be great signings?

5.) 23 May 2018 16:28:05
No one said great signings. Reece has good potential we need to sign four CH so to experienced two prospects
Iron my opinion Skrtel goldstone Reece Isherwood
All better that what we have

6.) 23 May 2018 16:42:25
Never seen Goldson play did not say he'd be a good signing I had no clue he had a heart problem. Its a rumour page and I passed on a rumour lol think I'l stick to the banter page you lot are mean :)

7.) 23 May 2018 18:05:02
All names mentioned above are better then cardroso

8.) 23 May 2018 18:06:56
Bluepete, heart problem not an issue or he would not be playing in premier ship

9.) 24 May 2018 07:33:04
i think the fact he had a heart problem is a big issue. and he hasn't played enough to be considered IMO.



17 May 2018 14:08:20
Turkish paper earlier said Rangers had been in contact about the availability of Skrtel. Same rag is now saying an offer has been made but no decision can be made till their new president starts on June 3rd. I have no idea how reliable this paper is but Skrtel imo would be a great signing for us.


1.) 17 May 2018 20:00:21
Their papers are the same as ours - guesswork, rubbish, a bit of luck and a lot of lies.



15 May 2018 12:45:11
Turkish paper saying we have bid £4m for Skrtel, really hope this is true, just what we need. I have also read in 4 rags now that we bid the same for Oli from Swansea. Now I know the so called NEWS papers are mostly guessing but 4 different sounds hopeful.
Really looking forward to next season and while I'm not expecting great things in Europe, hope I'm wrong, it gives our new players competitive games to gel.


1.) 15 May 2018 14:56:08
£4m for a 33 year old centre half? I hope not.

2.) 15 May 2018 15:20:22
£4 Million for a REAl quality centre back who’s played and proven at the very top, can actually defend and could be part off a rebuild that see us win trophies again and could have 2-3 great seasons maybe 4. yes please

3.) 15 May 2018 15:45:09
Bruno Alvez was a real quality centre half. 4m? Behave!

4.) 15 May 2018 16:07:47
4 Million for a 33yr old defender PMSL

5.) 15 May 2018 16:13:00
Alves is a quality Center half one bad season doesn’t make a bad player and remember goian an Bocanegra

6.) 15 May 2018 16:26:17
He's only got a year left on his contract 4m seems a bit steep

7.) 15 May 2018 16:45:00
I'm sure skirtel has only one yr left on his contract.

8.) 15 May 2018 17:30:14
McGinn has 1 year left and he'll cost about the same

9.) 15 May 2018 17:59:02
But McGinn has resale value as he's only 23.

10.) 15 May 2018 18:34:07
Did Alves and Skrtel play together a fenerbahce?
If they did might be a shout for our two cb’s for next season

11.) 15 May 2018 18:59:57
Govan front don't think so. I have hi kitty skirtle replaced Alves.
4 million ok for skirtle, though I think we could get him for less

Shawcross would be a great signing, these guys are the standard we require

12.) 15 May 2018 22:41:45
Goian and bocanegra, now that was some pairing

13.) 15 May 2018 23:24:19
I still stand by my comment that Skrtel is worth every penny we pay for him, we’re in 2018 and today’s market every price is inflated, Yes I didn't know earlier he’s only got a year on his contract so maybe put a bid in for half off the £4 million, BUT remember he’s a critical player to fenabache so if we need to pay The £4 Million to land him then so be it. He’s a quality centre back who’s always been a regular for club and country and most importantly he’s proved he can do it at the highest level! .

14.) 16 May 2018 15:12:38
Can’t see us bidding a total of £8 million for 2 players personally. $8 million Dembele Dollars ( £18 .72 at current exchange rates ) maybe?

15.) 16 May 2018 15:16:13
Surely that isn't good business sense to be signing a 33 year old for £4 million? I would take him, but I wouldn't pay that for him.

Should also look at Kyle Bartley seen as Swansea have been relegated from the EPL

16.) 16 May 2018 15:21:20
I’d have to agree that £4m for a player of his age is a bit risky. If he stays fit he could easily play 3 seasons at a high standard here.
We desperately need a top quality centre half though so although the figures a bit high it could be best signing of the season.
Personal note I don’t see our board sanctioning £4m for a single player at that age but I might be wrong



10 May 2018 18:35:08
OK here goes I have a cousin working in Swansea he's Gers daft too. While he's been down there has gone to a few Swansea games and works with a few fans. These fans are raging cause they think Oli's coming up here, no idea if they have info or just reading the papers. Anyway they think he's exactly what they need young, hard working and scores, next year when they are in the Championship.


1.) 10 May 2018 19:32:50
Would love oli not only he's a blue nose but he is a class act and if thay played him more then thay mite not have been relegated but chose to put him out on loan but if we get him then good bit of business but rangers will be linked with every guy and his dug or cat and let me add we will be some team next season a think there will be a good clear out and fellow bears and after the last few weeks and strikers not up to much a would recall miller just for the hibs game

2.) 10 May 2018 21:18:01
think he's a good player, believe he is on holiday with Allan McGregor just now (saw on twitter) so could be the foundations of it

he absolutely smashed it when he went on loan to Barnsley

3.) 11 May 2018 22:37:05
Reckon he could stay at Swansea in the championship unfortunately but would love him up.

Back from holiday some comments on stuff while i was away. Singing "You'll never walk alone" I would gladly sing/ murder "Athen Rye" 24/ 7 for a year if it meant we win the league. green boots? really have a word. I love so many on here saying we have done great in the transfer market, I agree, and then go on to prattle about another 27 (sleight exaggeration) positions we need to fill. I don't think any of us imagined 9 new signings. On that we have 3 loans so can accommodate 2 more I expect those to be, hope the first 2, perm any 2 from Solanke, Wilson, Kent and Woodburn from Liverpool.
Finally Tav. as Captain to quote from my favourite S. G. training video S. G. will decide "get that into yer 'eads NOW!




23 Jun 2018 09:08:53
Ok just signed up for Rangers Tv and very surprised £50 for the year I'd got it in my head it was £6 a week lol.
With Barker now likely and Ejaria already in midfield WHY? I can't see either as first choice in their positions. WE have Middleton and Kelly, (maybe more) our own youngsters, I honestly don't get these 2. Parent clubs will be demanding they get some game time.
Very Very happy with our transfers but I can't find any reason for these 2.


1.) 23 Jun 2018 09:17:43
Barker could be made permanent do you see Ejaria breaking into Liverpool I don't so if he impresses here goes to Liverpool then we sign him up on a free when his contract expires

2.) 23 Jun 2018 09:20:59
I know we need cover but I'd argue; Arfield, Candieas, Murphy, Rossiter, Jack, Windass and Docherty all before them in the pecking order again Why?

3.) 23 Jun 2018 10:05:08
Because these players were not good enough last season.

4.) 23 Jun 2018 11:39:57
we have bodies and numbers which is good, BUT we still need that guy who can dictate the game, don't see it in what we have in midfield so far. i realy want somebody who can stick the boot in as well as play. londonjock

5.) 23 Jun 2018 15:37:43
Simplythbest72, Ejaria has just signed a 4 year deal at Liverpool before he signed on loan, so unless he’s on a long loan deal I doubt he will be here unless we pay money for him

6.) 23 Jun 2018 18:17:26

Arfield was at Burnley last season.
Candieas-work rate 100%.
Murphy - 16 games 4 goals and 7 assists.
Windass- 13 goals 7 assists.
Rossiter- quality midfielder if we can keep him match fit.
Jack - Was out injured for a good part of the season but needs to keep his discipline.
Docherty - taking time to adjust playing for Rangers
The statement that these players were not good enough last season is questionable especially Candieas Murphy and Windass.



20 Jun 2018 14:46:08
Flanagan reported to be having a medical then joining us in Spain.


1.) 21 Jun 2018 01:26:28
Great buisnesd



16 Jun 2018 16:44:30
I don't normally get into formations (probably why I'm no good at FM) but was reading S. G. likes 352. I know that's not how he had liverppol kids playing but he was told to play same as the first team. I also know there should be flexability and how to change as neccersary. The freedom this would give to Tav and John playing as wing backs would imo make a big difference and with Goldson and Katic both very mobile I think playing Alves in the centre of the back 3 would also play to his strengths.
Ok that's enough thinking for me.


1.) 16 Jun 2018 16:53:33
See so much thinking I forgot what I meant to ask. I'd like to start watching our second 11 under 18's etc. would you recommend Rangers TV?

2.) 16 Jun 2018 17:23:50
Agree blue Pete. I’d like us to experiment with 352 formation giving tav n John proper wing back roles. What I like about it means we can easily change formation to 532 if it was merited.

3.) 16 Jun 2018 19:29:52
I could easily see Docherty being able to cover Tav at RB. He has the motor to get up and down the right all day. More concerned with the left as Wallace, if he stays, is defensivly weak. John is great going forward but is a bit on the small side for a defender.

4.) 16 Jun 2018 19:59:23
I think Docherty is a cracking wee player who was unfairly treated towards the end of the season. i would like to see him giving proper coaching by the new staff. With proper coaching i think he could be a brilliant player for us

5.) 16 Jun 2018 21:37:25
Hope young Docherty doesn't get frozen out of team next season. Really have high hopes for this boy with good advice from SG and Gary Mac I think we could have a player on our hands.



14 Jun 2018 16:23:21
It's quiet too quiet. All has gone quiet on our transfer rumoured targets front. Which leaves us armchair experts plenty of scope to make up our own much better than the media linking us with everybody.

I have pointed this out before Wilson plays right wing or no10 Middleton plays left so Wilson would have Zero Zilch no impact on Middleton's play time. Derby appear to be favourites according to the war drums but let's see.

It was rumoured, even before the window opened, Solanke would be coming here IF Klopp didn't think Solanke would get enough game time at Anfield.

Dunfermloyal you do realise the English press think of us a Scotlandshire? I know you have your own kingdom just South of me :) . Anyway I read the same article about Celtic after Wilson (Along with half the championship and a few EPL teams wanting him) I'm hoping, maybe against hope, that he comes here. He plays opposite wing or 10 so Middleton is safe. I truly believe and have posted this before if we do get Wilson and Solanke we will win the league.

Wonder if we can get Lafferty to teach Sadiq to feign being butted?

Jay I'm all for loan signings IF they are much better than we have or we have an option to buy, option to buy gives us time to fully evaluate before splashing out. I'd argue however than Earia or Sadiq are not better than we have be very happy to be proven wrong.

I'm sorry I cannot see giving Windass any more chances, looks disinterested for most of the game, I know there is a player in there we have all seen it. Unless they are prepared to sweat blood and tears I have no time for them anymore. Can't count the number of times I supported Barry McKay on here and Windass is worse.

My nut is as screwed as its ever going to be. Of course we want more we will always want more. A lot of us are a little disappointed at the speed, or lack of in our build up play, of course I'm only speaking for my friends at the game with me. A few, a majority, thought Morelos was very poor, I think he will only shine when or if he has a partner up front, if we continue to play him solo we may as well sell and get a replacement. We all 100% think Windass is a luxury we cannot afford and Candieas was played out of position. Apart from that we were all quite encouraged.

After the first 15 mins Katic and Goldson were very good ok Shkupi did get a few first touches in the box but most of those were on the sides of the box. Windass missed a sitter my 8 year old could have scored and 3 other decent chances. We could and should have won 4 or 5 -0 and most on here would have been happy. I'll admit I was wrong on Ejaria looked very good, should of had a penalty too after ripping through their defence. Middleton had us all on the edges of our seats from the moment he came on must start instead of Windass and play Candieas where Windass played.

I had to buy my 3 knock offs in Turkey just before they officially came out. Luckily they are very close to the real orange tops. I will buy the official home tops for them at Ibrox. My kids love the orange tops.

3-5-2, I know nothing or less about formations but read S. G. prefers this system. Posted this earlier and it does seem to suit are team except atm. we only have 1 striker. First choices first.

McGregor/ Alnwick
Goldson/ Cardoso Mcrorie/ Alves Katic
Tav/ Flan Candeias/ Murphy Rossiter/ Jack Arfield/ Windass John/ Wallace
Morelos New guy lol

Middleton Kelly Ejaria All pushing for mid field
I know most of you will disagree with my picks that's as it should be
