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!



14 Mar 2016 17:57:52
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.

Reading again about ex players coming back so Bears if you could bring back 1 player still playing and i'm not really for bringing anybody back but just to get some feelers out who would it be 1 player only?

Steven Davis : Southampton.


1.) 22 Mar 2017 14:19:06
What about young jamie ness

2.) 22 Mar 2017 14:28:18
Jamie Ness? is that the boy who plays at Scunthorpe? injury prone too? Think i'll pass on that one.

Steven Davis - YES!

3.) 22 Mar 2017 14:46:32
Not a huge fan of players returning but I would love to see Nikica Jelavic return. He was outstanding and I can't remember him having a poor game for us.


4.) 22 Mar 2017 14:49:16
Would love Steven Davis back. What a footballer and gentlemen.

5.) 22 Mar 2017 15:27:20
Would take any of Davis, Adam, Jelavic, Weiss back in a heartbeat. Would also consider Boughy or Bartley purely because we're desperate for a CB, but hope PC has a better shortlist!

6.) 22 Mar 2017 15:494:19
Davis all day long for me too. Very underrated player in the EPL. A class act.

7.) 22 Mar 2017 15:58:30
I agree with your choice totally bongo! Stevie davis for me (if only)! We can but dream mate! He's a smashing midfielder!

8.) 22 Mar 2017 16:25:16
Bougherra has retired, superb tho


9.) 22 Mar 2017 16:58:56
Aluko and Steven Davis

10.) 22 Mar 2017 17:37:45
Agree bongo Steve Davis class act.

11.) 22 Mar 2017 18:18:57
Aluko and Davis

12.) 22 Mar 2017 18:27:07
Steve Davis all day long, class midfielder

13.) 22 Mar 2017 19:50:31

14.) 22 Mar 2017 21:00:55
What about Ross McCormack?

15.) 22 Mar 2017 21:07:40
Phil Bardsley

16.) 23 Mar 2017 00:28:52
Butcher and Gough for me. even now they would probably be better than what we currently have 🙏
They were two amazing players.

17.) 22 Mar 2017 23:25:25
At a push aluko but generally wouldn't be a fan of taking any back. Purely on basis that your talking about players from pre five years ago. Most will either be in thirties or too expensive or both. Re weiss i am undecided. His debut came on as a sub v hibs i think and looked brilliant and created two late goals.

Beyond that his only real effective contribute was quick free kick for winner v celtic in league cup final. I fear his love for rangers is what attracts fans to him. Bulk of his career since has been spent in big last pay day pre retirement leagues. Question . helliday is a fan . does that make him a player? He certainly is not. We need players that do it on the park not social media

18.) 23 Mar 2017 05:14:03
I wouldn't have jelavic his head dropped in the last few months he was with us he wasn't interested and pushed for a move away

Would take Davis back due too the fact he pushed Southampton into paying a fee for him and aluko as this guy payed his own money too come play for us

19.) 23 Mar 2017 13:33:43
Im with you on that 1 mate. i don't think weiss was half as good as a lot of fans think. i think its the way he took to the club that the fans love about him.

20.) 23 Mar 2017 15:30:22
ross mcormack, steven davis, naisy, weiss and aluko would all improve our team. none of whom we could afford



17 Mar 2017 19:27:58
Where we go again Pedro has not even taken the team for one single game yet, and all the E&A championship mangers are selling and buying players for him. Let's just let the guy manage and see what players we have Christ he's not even met the chairman and his budget that he doesn't know about yet is spent!


1.) 17 Mar 2017 19:53:46
Was just asking if other fans knew any the players that pedro mendes has on books and could they do a job for club is this not what pages are for are just for having pop at other fans smh

2.) 17 Mar 2017 20:36:36
My goodness! I just seen a Dodoo, a rangers fan ACTUALLY talking sense.

3.) 17 Mar 2017 20:53:39
Well said Bong let's wait and see

4.) 17 Mar 2017 22:11:53
Bongo, are you bongoed?
New manager has not yet met the chairman? Bluddy hell mate, I really hope you're wrong there!?
Surely to God they have met, if you were chairman of a team, would you not like to meet the guy who you were trusting in to be in charge of matters on the pitch!?
I know I certainly!

5.) 17 Mar 2017 22:37:10
@321ron - in the paper today they plan to meet up next week. What's the issue? He's chairman, not the owner.

6.) 17 Mar 2017 23:14:31
Union Jack, the issue I am raising is, if PC and DK have not already met before now, I think it's a poor show all round and sorry to say, but a sad reflection on the way our club is being run.
DK will surely have to put his hand in his pocket during the next transfer window and splash some cash on a few much needed reinforcements.
Would you trust someone you have never met to spend your money? (granted, they will - as you informed us - meet NEXT WEEK, I was referring to the more 'here and now' and not met up, as yet)

7.) 17 Mar 2017 23:31:54
Fact Dave king is over next week and stefger never seen your post was reacting to the routers page know your new welcome mate you'll se what I mean in the coming weeks everybody's a scout/ coach or manager

8.) 18 Mar 2017 08:51:33
@321ron - you're not getting what I'm saying. DK doesn't own the club so decisions are not solely down to him. I'm sure he was involved in the hiring capacity but as an absentee chairman we can't hang around until he returns to the country?
As for trusting someone, considering the next transfer window is a couple of months away I'm sure that gives them plenty of time to get to know each other.

9.) 18 Mar 2017 10:11:39
Bongo, I'm not new here, been on for a few years, not posted for a while though.
I was simply raising a point, I'm not here to bicker, just want our club to be successful again and for that, we all need to pull in the same direction!

10.) 18 Mar 2017 14:23:01
Union Jack, I do get what you are saying, all I'm saying is it's not exactly ideal that they haven't met as yet.
We are still running at a loss, so it will be DK's money that is being spent on new signings, as I don't know of/ haven't heard of other investment being pumped into Ibrox.
Settle petal, we'r on the same side! 👍🏻

11.) 18 Mar 2017 17:23:56
We are fans surely we are allowed to say players we think would be good? Surely that's not against the rules.

12.) 19 Mar 2017 00:35:50
Surely as has been stated by the club, A DOF is the man King need to discuss budgets with! Caixinha is head coach not manager as our previous regimes



09 Mar 2017 17:53:23
I'm as desperate as the rest of us to get a manager in asap but this new guy is clearly using Rangers as a stepping stone something that Dave King pointed out that Warburton did and clearly wasn't happy about it so I don't understand our Board anymore, this guy must be cheap!


1.) 09 Mar 2017 20:34:57
Apparent £800k is not cheap

2.) 10 Mar 2017 15:30:53
Of course he will. However if he gets us to where we should be we can then move on

3.) 10 Mar 2017 15:15:06
£800K a year ain't cheap. Give him a break and DK. Remember where we could have been under Ashkey's thumb. God bless DK.



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?

Big B
Think about it you apply for a job thinking this is for me, you get an interview explaining what your going to be asked to do and what your cash flow is, you then compare it to what you have, old saying Big B ( The grass is always greener on the other side ) but we all know that's not the case with our team!
