SuperCooper were are you?
What's happening with yer pall O'Halloran since this story broke you've been posted missing, I mean you were quick enough to tell us all over and over that you told us he was signing come on buddy what's happening!
1.) 07 Jan 2017 16:48:29
He's just filling up his car. We should have some news soon!
2.) 07 Jan 2017 21:00:19
Probably away to change his name again and speak to his 'sources'
04 Jan 2017 19:48:31
My companies HQ is about a mile from Elland Road one of my English mates who just got back to work today and follows Leeds has told me, Leeds are looking at a bid of £1.5 to £2.5 million for Barry MaKay with possible add on, they were really impressed with him on Saturday!
1.) 04 Jan 2017 20:46:38
I think rangers would want a lot more than that.
2.) 04 Jan 2017 21:03:18
I agree mate and I for one don't want him to go, why sell your best players but I'm just passing on what he was told by someone inside Leeds, these things also depend on what the player wants and we know they have been scouting him for a wee while, ide build a team around him personally!
3.) 04 Jan 2017 21:39:46
He is worth a lot more than £2.5m but given that there is unlikely to be much if any investment forthcoming from King I wouldn't be too surprised if we sell him. We should be looking to sell others well ahead of McKay but we also have to remember that he has yet to sign a new contract.
4.) 04 Jan 2017 23:20:34
We would get more than that if he was out of contract, through a tribunal for his development.
The board should quit if the accept under £6m.
Players with Barry's pace don't come cheaply. Especially on a long term contract.
If he does get sold, it will blatantly show lack of ambition from the board.
It's players like Barry is our future. He's been doing well recently. And is only going to get better.
5.) 05 Jan 2017 00:18:27
Don't know how much we would get for McKay's development. He came through killie ranks and we signed him in 2011. Good prospect though. One we should be trying to keep.
6.) 05 Jan 2017 00:43:29
He doesn't have great pace. He doesn't have much of an end product. He doesn't have much of a delivery. He's worth £3m at the very most and I would bite anybody's hand off for that. It's not lack of ambition to cash in on a player who cost us nothing and who can easily be replaced for nothing.
7.) 05 Jan 2017 09:45:30
Glasgow is Blue Perhaps a lack of ambition by one particular member of the Board, King!
8.) 05 Jan 2017 16:00:03
Can i just add that his name is Barrie and not Barry.
9.) 05 Jan 2017 20:31:14
Wee-ecky I agree wae u about 3 million just now but only because he's pretty untested, got to disagree when u say he doesn't have great pace the boys rapid do u not see him at games he goes past folk like they're not moving.
10.) 05 Jan 2017 20:56:26
Wee ecky. Take it the Swedish international lustig is slow given he couldn't get near mckay at any time in the match? Can throw in celtic's three midfielders too since they couldn't catch him either when he ran 70 yards with the ball and they were sprinting flat out without it. he's got pace, and plenty of it. Honestly, some of the drivel on here about the lad boils my urine. He's ten assists already for the season in a team that clearly doesn't score enough goals. Wallace is next with 7 and for 6 of those barrie played Wallace in to cut it back for the goals. No end product? Are you actually being serious or just blinded to his attributes because he doesn't thunder into a tackle etc? As for delivery, at the risk of repeating myself ad infinatum, he isn't there to cross it into the box (even when we actually have anyone in the box which is rare), he's there to play through balls, retain possession or cut inside the full back and play Wallace in down the line. He's our best outfield player by a country mile. You're entitled to your opinion obviously but you've picked three attributes that you can't back up with evidence whatsoever. Try supporting the kid.
11.) 05 Jan 2017 21:28:50
When the "kid" (he's 22) first came into the team, nobody was more vociferous in his defence than me. I've been around Ibrox long enough to know that local lads are often made scapegoats by the fans and I thought I saw something in this boy. But that was in the third division, and while he has made some progress from then (no thanks to McCoist) there are many limitations to his game. That's why he's not been snapped up already, he's playing at his level and as we hopefully improve he will be left behind. However, I'll bow to your superior tactical nous, spart7, you clearly have the ear of the manager when he's telling players what he wants from them.
12.) 05 Jan 2017 22:45:56
I'm actually a certified sfa coach ecky so I do know a little bit about tactics etc, but it's pretty obvious to me and tbh wouldn't take much 'nous' to work out even if I wasn't. He's a right footed player playing (mostly) on the left wing. He's been chosen by his manager to play there instead of on the right where even I would expect him to whip balls in from if that was his position. If and when he does get to the left by-line he cuts back onto his right anyway and looks for a pass on the deck. He's not as 1 footed as waggy for example but he's not just going to swing at it with his left peg either, nor should he. Both full backs have licence to get forward at every opportunity and, to generate space for Wallace, mackay takes the full back inside then slides the ball through (that's the theory anyway and will be a managerial instruction) . However, our game plan is obvious to most teams we've faced and he's normally doubled up on (celtic had three on him a few times if you watch the game back) which affects both Wallace's runs (I know he wasn't playing but is the normal pairing) and limits mackay's forward options. Warburton has mentioned many times we have a focus on ball retention so at the start of the season he played square or backwards passes in that instance in order to follow his managers instruction and keep the ball. The 'get it up the park and play the second ball' fans amongst our support then gave him pelters for it. He lost his confidence and became far less effective. He's clearly learnt from that (remember it's only his first full season in the top league) and now instead of square passes he's taking on the two markers or pinging diagonal passes (BTW there isn't a better or more accurate passer in the league imho) to the right wing more often than not and has become far more effective again. He is the only player we have I'd be confident wouldn't be 'left behind' when better players eventually arrive. Krankjaer highlighted his potential when he was interviewed after his second day of training and I think he'd know a lot more about his ability than you or I. He's got an unbelievable first touch, great range of passing and the vision to go with it, excellent close control and blistering pace. He would absolutely thrive in a better team, not vanish within it. He's exactly the type of player I pay my money to see. We can agree to disagree though, one man's aguero can be another man's sebo etc. :-)
13.) 06 Jan 2017 14:19:18
Waggy's right leg is a dead stump! Even for the goal against Inverness he had to cut the ball back with the outside of his left foot - embarrassing for a pro footballer
14.) 06 Jan 2017 22:05:34
Spart7, that is probably one of the most enjoyable posts I have read on this site and I agree that he is the only 'fit' quality player that would thrive with better players around him. Unfortunately I fear that McKay will move on to bigger and better things before we have that level of quality that you refer to since we clearly have neither the funding, or as far as some of the current Board are concerned, the parent ambition to take the club back to where we belong!
07 Jun 2016 23:05:09
What happened to Taylor supposed to be coming up for a look around and talks nothing about it in any posts!
1.) 08 Jun 2016 03:35:15
Hopefully it was a load of nonsense. The guy's ****.
2.) 08 Jun 2016 08:35:12
He stated before coming he was going to Turkey to discuss other moves so we were never going to know anything straight away! We can do better anyway!
3.) 08 Jun 2016 09:04:53
You don't spend your career at NUFC in the Premiership (granted they got relegated) , and have stacks of England caps at u21 level if you are ****! The guys a proven CB, exactly what we need! The same things were said about Davie Weir and look how that panned out!
4.) 08 Jun 2016 13:20:02
You're wrong! Being a Geordie is enough to get you a place in this farce of a Newcastle team. Even then all their fans think he's pish! I'm sorry but that just doesn't qualify you as good enough, I wouldn't want Jack Colback either! Taylor is also injury prone which makes him an even bigger risk!

Maciej Gostomski to leave Rangers without playing a first team match
source: stv. tv.
1.) 14 Mar 2016 22:50:18
Strange signing in the 1st place if bell wasn't going anywhere.
2.) 15 Mar 2016 10:10:50
Supposibly left because of family reason strange one though now the Hamilton goalkeepers Roumers becomes clear!
3.) 15 Mar 2016 11:17:03
I reckon Warbs has decided to take him on and let Bell and Gostomski fight it out for the chance at a longer contract. looks like Bell has beat Gostomski.
However it remains to be seen whether he has earned a new deal?
4.) 17 Mar 2016 13:17:48
I think he was signed to let Kelly go on loan and bell was injured?
08 Mar 2016 18:49:11
Mark Warburton says he was scouting a player in Northern Ireland when he heard about the cup draw any idea what team and what player guys and any good!
1.) 08 Mar 2016 19:03:06
Heard its a young boy of fourteen apparently there's a few epl teams after him Warburton thought it would be good to go over and see him personally just a rumour though don't know the boys name.
01 Feb 2017 22:36:52
This is what will happen
Geronimo will hold another Pow Wow tomorrow morning they'll all have there say, the players probably Miller and Halliday will say, we'll learn from this, you'll get this till the next game. The back 5 will be the same he will tinker with the midfield, Miller will start 60 min into it 3 midfielders will be subbed for Forrester, Windas and DooDoo
OHalloron must be raging can't get a game with this lot and the defence pick up there appearance money for another terrible 90 min !
1.) 01 Feb 2017 22:46:44
Just waiting for the another favourite quote to come out of Rangers "the players are angry and frustrated with that result" usually from Mr Halliday who is also quoted as saying we didn't need any players in January
05 Jan 2017 21:44:27
The man to ask about O'Halloran is Supercooper so ant truth in this one mate!
1.) 06 Jan 2017 08:35:54
Supercooper why has he no left foot?
2.) 06 Jan 2017 22:01:02
Bongo i do know that moh is very disappointed that he's not started more games as he works his socks off in training. He most certainly is desperate to stay at rangers and make it work!
3.) 07 Jan 2017 09:45:00
Apparently MOH has asked for a move due to lack of game time. MW has said that he would let him move on but the board will not. Maybe they want him in the shop window to recoup the transfer fee paid. Sounds like they want him in the team but MW doesn't. That's what I've heard from a friend of the family. Maybe Supercooper will confirm this?
02 Jan 2017 13:56:50
I can't believe some of our fans saying they would welcome back the judases that ran out of Ibrox and Auchinhowe when times got bad to seek ther fortunes elsewhere.
Just read if true Naysmith holding out for more cash!
I'll tell how I feel your not welcome even to watch us I'll never forget who they were! Mercenaries the lot f you.
1.) 02 Jan 2017 14:18:27
So Bongo, you'd rather stick with the average lot we have now than see better players come back to play for us?
Not sure that adds up to supporting your club!
2.) 02 Jan 2017 14:31:31
Personally I would happily take Naismith. I would also be looking to see if I could get Brunt if he is on a Bosman. As far as Lafferty is concerned I wouldn't want him back. I just don't believe that he is anywhere near good enough. We have a lot of mediocre players adding another one doesn't make a lot of sense.
3.) 02 Jan 2017 14:44:55
No I'm not happy with what we have but bringing back old players especially the ones that left us I'm not for, There must be players out there in the transfer window, I'd even go further get rid of O'Halloran and Halliday as well, O, Halloran been here a Year now how many starts and Forrester gets a start before him all the time Halliday is mince and the fans are turning on him!
4.) 03 Jan 2017 15:38:46
I'm totally with you bongo as regards to they 2 mercenaries lafferty and naismith! They're not welcome as far as i'm concerned! Not good enough for norwich so they want to waltz back here as if nothing has happened! Don't think so! GTF the pair of you!
28 Dec 2016 22:50:30
You know we were really bad tonight, when Ricky Foster looked good.
no fight, no heart, no leadership, no direction, no plan B another night were the Rangers supporters have been mugged by gutless players on wages there not worthy off!
I think the times are about to change by the fans the players don't deserve us!
27 Dec 2016 15:40:57
Is it time to cut our losses with Michael O, Halloran that 1 year now still just a handful of starts, he's obviously not catching the gaffers eye in training I say sell him in thus transfer window, your thoughts guys?
1.) 27 Dec 2016 16:13:58
I don't think he is used in a manner to suit his game, but if he does not suit the manager, then why not.
2.) 27 Dec 2016 16:46:11
billyb, how would you use him? At start off the season I was one who thought he was underrated and would be a big player this season. When he gets game time he does not seem to make the most of it and other than pace can appear limited, predictable and his passing not great. Also appears to be satisfied not to be involved more.
3.) 27 Dec 2016 18:54:52
If you remember the night he destoyed us, at Ibrox, he played quite deep, in a sort of mid-field position and attacked our defence centrally. His pace and the way he attacked us through the middle tore us apart.
He is more suited to an out and out 4-4-2.
4.) 27 Dec 2016 19:05:41
ur right billy we are back to the days of bringing in players and playing them differently.
5.) 27 Dec 2016 19:31:45
Think he should start game tomorrow at SJ, has something to prove and players can play well against former team.
Our system is more flexible now and can see how could play on the right of a midfield 4. My concern is that his close control is not his best quality. Hope he gets game and plays a blinder, really want him to be success.
6.) 27 Dec 2016 21:30:41
Personally for me M'oh is better suited to starting games at Ibrox or the wider longer pitches. Play him at Pittodrie or Tynecastle and his main attacking threat of pace is almost immediately nullified due to the compact nature of those parks. Guy is a decent player great feet but bear in mind he was a star of St Johnstone because I believe Tommy Wright knew how to play to the lads strengths.
7.) 27 Dec 2016 21:37:16
Fd, I totally agree, tomorrow night is the perfect platform for O'Halloran. Two goals in a 3-1 victory.
8.) 28 Dec 2016 06:48:06
Ger88, Willie Johnston's pace was electric, and he was used through the middle many times, on one occasion scoring 4 at pittodrie. Similarly, with Peter Lovenkrands.
9.) 28 Dec 2016 10:22:54
The point being missed with MoH is that he exploited the space in behind when he played against us.
Playing for us, there is no space for him to exploit as the opposition tend to sit in a lot deeper.
This was obviously going to happen but Warburton couldn't see it.
10.) 28 Dec 2016 10:25:05
Who would realistically sign him and how much would you think he is worth.
11.) 28 Dec 2016 14:45:52
3-1 win tonight would be a great result. Hope MOH plays a blinder and grabs couple of goals. Critical we win tonight regardless of score.
12.) 28 Dec 2016 14:56:27
Gosman, Tend to agree with you, but would be ideal for away games, when teams give us more space.
17 Feb 2017 20:54:15
Sourness is not a well man utter nonsense
12 Feb 2017 19:31:48
You'll need tae change yer name tae Big A 77
01 Feb 2017 22:41:15
I thought Waghorn was poor hardly went past anyone poor crosses as well, Miller got no service from the wings and had to go looking for the ball!
20 Jan 2017 13:20:29
Sorry Hanni I disagreed with you on holiday Dung has it uses as for Mr halliday !
16 Jan 2017 22:35:04
Reading all the posts on this WHEN do any of our kids get a change at Rangers at best 3 sit on the bench then the usual suspects get there 60 min sub appearance money!
14 Feb 2017 23:01:30
Hop Along Hopless Halliday no surly not, he's terrible and can't even sing
11 Feb 2017 17:23:36
Dnothing unusual there all the English players in the team are the same and a whole load of past players did the same the only people that are loyal are us guys the rest it's all about the money!
11 Feb 2017 14:44:42
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!
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!
04 Feb 2017 17:59:05
Yes one huge one the hard man the badge kisser Mr one of us was dropped long may that continue.
Seriously though unless change were doomed to 3edit even 4 th
