Murty has done well with this crop of players but when things go wrong he can not change things to get us the results needed.
This is no fault of his own the board have fling him under the bus they have to take responsibilty for the mess we find ourselves in we where crying out for a experianced manager and they go for murty as he is the cheapeast option for them.
If they get this manager choice in the summer wrong then they should be packing there bags for me we need go all out to get the best manager we can.


1.) 19 Mar 2018 13:20:09
Who would you want as the next permanent rangers manager Craig8688?

2.) 19 Mar 2018 13:57:14
I would like to see the club show ambiuion and target either marco silva or gio van bronckhorst

3.) 19 Mar 2018 16:01:50
And when it all goes wrong recall Murty?

Get behind the man he can only work with what he’s got.

Look at the resources the other lot have to call on we have nothing let me that and it shows

4.) 19 Mar 2018 16:33:47
i agree with you murty has done really well and afterall he is a youth coach
but i still rather have the team as it is just now rather than it was with all the bampots we had running it

5.) 19 Mar 2018 16:58:43
Yes the team has played a bit better under Murty but and they are big buts if Aberdeen win their game in hand I know it's an if they are in second place, we have lost seven games at home this season a record and Murty has been in charge for five of those, for me simply not good enough he is a youth coach who has been thrown below the bus by this board and it hasn't worked, fans are so desperate for success they cling to everything, Murty is great with the press, I could listen to him all day talking football well for me I couldn't care less if he never spoke I want success, I spend a lot of money following Rangers and it's just not good enough the board must find investment bring in an experienced manager who can boss a dressing room, the team cheered when we got Celtic in cup that should never have happened they should shut up and do their talking on the pitch or the big question is can they?

6.) 19 Mar 2018 18:37:53
Have to disagree with a few of the things he has said during press conferences. He was wrong to play down the assault which ended Ryan Jacks season the tackle was scandalous. Also thanking Brown for his contribution to Scotland was one of the most cringeworthy things I’ve ever heard. Our home record under him is poor and he has shown a great deal of naivety in the last 2 games. Should go back to being the u20 coach

7.) 19 Mar 2018 19:27:44
We need to get behind the man and stop shooting him down after less than a season. Its not his fault the team lack creativity against defensive sides. As for the celtic game, poor defending cost us. We should have won that game. The only reason brenda flung on an attacker was because his teams can't defend. We r missing ryan jack, mccrorie, dorrans and bates. Three r key midfielders and one a key defender. If we bring in better faster centre halfs we would reduce our goal loss by ten easy. If we had beat celtic, you could have all said give the man a contract. he's cut the gap between them and us massively this season. If we finish a strong second and put them oot the vup there will be no complaints here

8.) 19 Mar 2018 20:21:46
Murty is too nice and he hasn't enough experience for a huge job like Gers, I wouldn't have windass in the team, he goes walkabout to often, but on Saturday they all went walkies.

9.) 19 Mar 2018 22:34:06
The reason we lack creativity is solely down to murty. We have creative players in the team. Tavernier, John, Goss, windass, Murphy, candias, morelos, Cummings are all attacking creative players and tbf with a tactically astute manager would flourish. The fact we are the leagues top scorers shows this to an extent however his negative formations and style of play hinders these players. How often have we seen long balls lumped forward for no reason at all?

Unfortunately the buck stops with murty

10.) 20 Mar 2018 19:36:33
Giovanni Von Bronkhorst all day long. We should go all out to get him signed up for next season

I fear if we don’t show ambition and intent on the Managerial front, many will not renew their season tickets, which means less money to spend on quality players

Season Ticket renewals will be out in the next 4-6 weeks. We need to show some ambition. I like Murty but he’s not the man to take us to the next level. 🇬🇧



11 Mar 2018 20:21:40
For us to move to another level in the summer we need target a tough takling cdm with good strengh
at least one good cb to patner mccorie maybe even 2
And one quality cam that can unlock a defence
These are key area for us to strenghen and would also consider gk postion if we can cash in on fod


1.) 11 Mar 2018 21:11:59
We've got a good young tough tackling central defensive midfielder in greg docherty mate!

2.) 11 Mar 2018 23:14:09
No he is a box to box player and f you had ever played the game to any form of level you would know that. We need an Ian Ferguson type player.

3.) 11 Mar 2018 23:15:23
i would like to see a player in the same mould as mo edu tough strong quick and won't get out muscled in cdm role docherty is more box to box

4.) 12 Mar 2018 01:04:53
We are Glasgow rangers we need to be at the level where we don't need a Cdm that's a negative approach in my opinion!
We were shocking in the second half today it was actually embarrassing. But wes sold the second and if u think otherwise then u really don't have a clue about football!

5.) 12 Mar 2018 07:33:42
Can’t agree we need a player who can stand up to Brown he bullied our midfield and as for second goal you need to look at our CBs they both missed a long ball from brown leaving the keeper exposed

6.) 12 Mar 2018 09:12:37
@frayzul all the top teams use a DMF just look at casemiro at real, busquets at barca, matic at man utd, kante at chelsea, fernandinho at man city and so on. with a real DMF it gives the rest of the midfielders more initiative to go forward. that's why a lot of the better teams get away with playing 2 AMFs in midfield so how you can say its a negative i don't know

7.) 12 Mar 2018 13:55:45
Thikaboutit bang on. Alves should have dropped deeper when there was no pressure on the ball on his side and then Cardosa, who tried to get on the cover should have made sure he stopped Dembele. The goalie had no chance for the first goal after it clips Bates, however was Goss's fault for getting brushed aside in midfield by Rodic. Goss was also slack for the winner as he can't let the player come inside. Their finishes were all quality mind but we shot ourselves in the foot. We are on the way back and getting closer by the day. Morelos is getting slaughtered for his miss but he played a great game. Cummings was class when he came on so there are lots of positives. They know we are coming. Dunbar Blue

8.) 12 Mar 2018 17:43:08
Just watched the highlights the and to be honest Morelos hassled the celtic defence all day cardoso had another bad game and the keepers positioning is always suspect But if u watch Morelos again I is a cracking player just his finishing that let's him down gutted to see the ugly mob celebrate at end

9.) 12 Mar 2018 19:21:44
DSG in my observation Morelos scores the hard ones and misses the easy ones his header a few weeks ago again st Johnston shows this he had no right scoring that header but misses headers from 4 yards out right in front of the goal.

His chance against them yesterday anyone else on the park would have scored it was harder to miss that chance than it was to score it.

we need a fat sally or someone like that to come in and work with him to work in his thought process when he has easy chances there had to be something in his mind that blocking him scoring these goals.

10.) 13 Mar 2018 07:35:05
Or a kris boyd mate! There's one thing this guy does, scoring goals, guaranteed! He's a terrific finisher!

11.) 13 Mar 2018 15:41:29
We don't need a tough tackling dmf. We have ryan jack, Hopefully we get Cummings on a permanent along with Murphy and maybe goss. We need a strong ch that can lead, a rb for cover, another cf and attacking midfielder that doesn't go missing when needed. I do think we'll probably need to get rid of quite a few players before any of this happens though.

12.) 13 Mar 2018 18:50:47
Bluechef, i also hope we get both jason cummings and sean goss permanently! As for jamie murphy, who is the best signing of the lot, which i did say on these very pages when we signed our january signings, that murphy was our best signing! He becomes our player automatically, at the end of the season! So no worry over him mate, he's ours, permanently when the deal kicks in, once the season finishes! Jamie murphy and daniel candeias our both wide men, were our best 2 players against celtic on sunday there! Murphy was causing there defenders massive problems, especially in the first half! Murphy is very direct, with very quick feet! Superb signing!

13.) 14 Mar 2018 11:43:29
I might be wrong but Goss was brought in for cover as Dorrans and jack are long term absentees. not to mention Rossiter.

14.) 14 Mar 2018 12:00:03
Supercooper, Murphy doesn't just become our player automatically at the end of the season, your partly right but We have to pay Brighton first, probably with some of the season ticket money then the deal kicks in.



08 Mar 2018 00:13:37
Just seen a article that said murray is considering investing in our club once again what do fellow fans think of this
for me if he can bring serious money to the table then it should be considered


1.) 08 Mar 2018 01:07:53
Something just doesn’t feel right about it.

Im thinking most fans will see passed the short term gain of investment from Murray’s pockets and remember the utter state we were left in because of him.

He sold the club for a pound because he knew the tax case was coming. I blame him for Celtics dominance, he sold our club to Craig Whyte, who was always intending not to pay the players tax and put the club into administration. Murray started he ball rolling.

I say find other investors. Wouldn’t want him involved in decision making if the going gets tough fanancially, end up sold down the river again.

2.) 08 Mar 2018 06:46:40
I say jump at it, I promise you there was more to the £1 sale than meets the eye and it was white and green that put us in this position. If you sell your house and the new owners use it for criminal purposes are you in any way responsible? Murray done nothing wrong apart from selling to the wrong person.

3.) 08 Mar 2018 06:58:09
Think it's been proven that SDM actually took money out our club the last time he never invested. He also cherry pick the profitable bits of the club and took them. The bit that sticks in my throat was the EBTs he actually took money each year running this now illegal tax dodge, and when caught jumped ship and left us with that imbecile Whyte. The conman Whyte took the blame for years of Murray overspending and personal under investment.

4.) 08 Mar 2018 07:18:16
My gut reaction to reading this is that I don’t have any issue with Murray returning, he may carry a heavy burden as to what’s happened over the years and Murray was in the midst of financial Timplosion himself at the time he sold, I think his wealth had shrunk from £700m to under £100m and businesses all across him empire were folding, with a great deal of hindsight he should have became the biggest creditor and then put Rangers into administration like Motherwell did a couple of times etc. Anyway I know many will disagree and not want him near but I’m just going with my gut.

5.) 08 Mar 2018 08:25:18
I think at the end of the day David Murray tried his best in the beginning he just let it all get away from him and made a complete balls up of it. I’m sure he feels responsible for what happened. CW didn’t have best intentions at heart, and maybe DM wants to put money back in as a way to start making up for it.

6.) 08 Mar 2018 09:45:16
I wouldn’t have a problem with Murray investing because let’s face it guys not one of us complained at the height of our success and like the other poster said it just got completely out of control and I’m sure he is hurting with the way it all ended and the complete shambles that was left, and I’m sure there is no way he’d go down that route again.

7.) 08 Mar 2018 09:46:13
sir david murray welcome back if true all the shambles that went on with ebts etc ain't all down to one person anyone who had ebts offerd ebts etc etc accepted ebts etc etc are just as bad as who ever came up with the idea to screw our club over and put it in the mess it is in


8.) 08 Mar 2018 10:06:49
If David Murray is serious about investing in our great club then let him do it through Club 1872 then we can judge his intentions from there.

9.) 08 Mar 2018 12:47:09
Whilst I'm sure most would welcome fresh investment I have to agree with BearMode91. I wouldn't welcome Murrays money after the state he left us in.

10.) 08 Mar 2018 12:42:13
Murray was a definite chancer. What bits did he Cherry-pick?

11.) 08 Mar 2018 12:43:58
I wouldn't trust Murray with a pound of my money.

12.) 08 Mar 2018 12:47:31
You can take your money DM and stick it where the sun don't shine, His fault for what he did to our club.

13.) 08 Mar 2018 13:40:55
Martin Bain was the one who dealt with player contracts so surely he should some of the blame too

14.) 08 Mar 2018 14:46:06
Murray sold Rangers reluctantly as due to the recession his other businesses were struggling Rangers were not the only club to use Tax dodges his millions got us 9 in a row and so many good memories if he wants to invest let him we all deserve a second chance

15.) 08 Mar 2018 16:10:56
it was all loans DM used not 1 penny of his own dosh serial liar yes we all enjoyed the 9IAR but we knew nothing of were funding was coming from loans.

16.) 08 Mar 2018 16:37:03
Murray started the ball rolling in our downfall. If he hadn't sanctioned these EBT contracts there wouldn't have been Whyte, Green and all the other rubbish that followed. I cannot believe anybody here saying he did nothing wrong? He caused the whole mess for Christ sake!

17.) 08 Mar 2018 16:45:52
We went under because craig whyte didn't pay the 9 million odd to the tax man he pocketed it. He didn't have the funds to get us out he lied and murray was so desperate to offload us he didn't do his homework him. We know he's not afraid to put his money where his mouth is and it would certainly ruffle a few feathers across the clyde that's for sure. If he brings serious financial clout again and he has serious backers within his group then why not.

18.) 08 Mar 2018 16:50:40
Too many short memories, he should never drag himself near our club again. If he wants to make up for what he done leave a big basket of cash on the door step n away back to the shaddows.

19.) 08 Mar 2018 16:51:50
I'm dumbfounded that anyone would consider allowing him anywhere near us again. Yes he gave us some great memories, but the last 6 years would never have happened if wasn't for his gross mismanagement! I don't want Naismith back anymore, but most of you won't forgive him for a misguided press conference that he has since apologised for.

I don't recall Murray making any apologies for what he's put us through! I'm starting to think some of you would sell your grannies for the right price. Given the timing of this 'report' it seems to be an effort to distract, divide us.

20.) 08 Mar 2018 17:21:26
I can assure you all that when Murray sold us for £1 he actually saved us. Remember EBTs were legal and politicians were using them.

21.) 08 Mar 2018 18:52:43
if murray wants to make amends let him put in 20 mil which dave king did as a concerned fan and have no connection to running the show, that would do for me.

22.) 08 Mar 2018 19:54:33
BigMarv82, I'd sell both my grannies and my misses and her grannies and my dog to stop the mhanky mob and get us to 10 in a row lol

23.) 09 Mar 2018 15:31:19
As much as the 9 in a row years were amazing, Murray threw us under a bus to save his other businesses. Can't believe for a minute that as a successful business man, Murray allowed himself to be duped/ conned by Whyte.

24.) 09 Mar 2018 17:16:09
Struth1872 that's simply not true he was thrown under a bus by lloyds bank and sold us for a pound to someone who said he would pay the bank, which he did using money from ticketus the rest is history, Murray saved us from the banks.



07 Jan 2018 00:54:01
So murphy is signed up on loan with garuntee we can sign him in the summer as long as we can get the funds together


1.) 08 Jan 2018 00:25:38
So would you rather we payed the money and got into more debt or wait 6months and see if he settles at the club then pay it yeah your option of paying upfront seem better not



03 Jan 2018 12:51:25
we are ment to be close to deal for sean goss ex man unitied players now playing for qpr
plays in midfield and defence 22 year old


1.) 03 Jan 2018 12:56:13
Just seen that in the paper but never heard of him, anybody know anything about him rather than just wikipedia

2.) 03 Jan 2018 13:12:53
seems to play more as a defensive mid and seems to pass the ball well
Hopefully the lad does well
but i have to wonder if murty wants him or is another of mark allen signings

3.) 03 Jan 2018 13:46:02
These are the names coming through now that were presented to mciness from Allen. Mciness was presented with 12 names and rejected all of them, the next day he knocked us back.

4.) 03 Jan 2018 14:04:21
Why so many unknown gambles? There are very good and very capable young players in Scotland who show great potential but we steer clear of them and take punts on guys no one has heard of, and we couldn’t possibly scout as they aren’t playing at any sort of level with their existing club. I am in no way judging the boy from QPR’s ability as have never seen him, but frustrated that we seem to never get off this roundabout of risk.

I’m disillusioned by the Director of Football strategy so far

5.) 03 Jan 2018 14:11:05
The director of football is trying to get a caliber of player in that will help us to 2nd place without spending to much money, simple. Mciness wanted players to win the league so it's costs more that's why he's not in the hot seat. Maybe the board have admitted defeat for the season and maybe go again next season but that's just a guess

6.) 03 Jan 2018 14:21:33
I’m willing to give the guy a go, Declan John was a similar signing and has done well so far (lots more to come hopefully) if we can get a decent option to buy on him and he does well then we have a versatile young player in the squad, makes sense to be picking up bargains where possible with little risk, I suppose it all depends on the terms of the loan!

7.) 03 Jan 2018 15:13:54
He's signed.

8.) 03 Jan 2018 15:28:04
Confirmed on the Gers website.

9.) 03 Jan 2018 15:29:08
So far I am completely underwhelmed with the players we are being linked with! What the hell has mark Allen brought to the table!

10.) 03 Jan 2018 15:41:41
hopefully he has more energy on the park than in his interview 😂

11.) 03 Jan 2018 15:43:46
What a load of rubbish mkloyal

12.) 03 Jan 2018 15:44:18
Give the guy a chance, he can only work within the budget presented to him. The boy might actually be a decent player, I remember similar comments about Hyndman last year as well. The argument that there is very capable young players in Scotland is nonsense. We have NO permanent manager either so long term deals or signings are unlikely

13.) 03 Jan 2018 16:20:29
Mkloyal is Aberdeen going to spend the money McInnes stayed at Aberdeen because it was the safer option. Goss is a sensible signing till the end of the season as cover and who knows he might turn out to be another Declan but let’s give him a go

14.) 03 Jan 2018 16:27:15
unless its pre contracts every scottish team we negotiate with has shown they have no desire to do business with us i find this a strange signing

does it mean cardoso and alves will be shown the door

why bring halliday back then sign goss also what does it do for the development of jamie barjonas who i feel is showing plenty of promise

15.) 03 Jan 2018 16:31:53
It's a loan deal fs, calm doon.

16.) 03 Jan 2018 16:38:06
To be fair most signings most folk will not know, we can't afford names at the moment. How can anyone judge Mark Allen on a player that's not kicked a ball for us yet.

It could be 6 months to look at him, before offering longer deal, it could be to add a little depth to the squad or that he is a good young player for future or to go straight in to the first team.

17.) 03 Jan 2018 16:50:57
Goss is a sensible signing, rather than an exciting one imo. Alves looks like he could be out for a while, as does Dorrans, so playing Goss in front of the back 4 allows McCrorie to slot back in at Centre Half beside Wilson with Bates as cover.

18.) 03 Jan 2018 16:59:08
A Young Versatile player who wasn’t far away from Man United squad who is described as technically gifted with a terrific range of passing, we get chance to see if he’s good enough to improve our squad before committing to buy him yet people think it’s a poor signing.
As for questioning our DOF when the windows just opened when we aren’t aware of our budget, targets, strategy, who identify which of these players or ability of anyone who is signed yet.
Personally I’d love Murphy and/ or Naismith but until the window closes I will reserve judgement on how our DOF has performed

19.) 03 Jan 2018 17:23:51
If mciness was going to come to us he wanted funds to challenge celtic or what's the point really? Come here and have massive amounts of pressure to finish 2nd! He can can try the with Aberdeen and have nowhere near the same pressure. He would have been on 100 grand more so what is the point really. It's the same reason no other manager wants the job at this stage. No decent manger in there right mind would touch rangers unless funds were available to challenge celtic. The board know that aswell, look at the facts people Halliday is coming back, Murty is manager and we have taken a loanee who can't get a game for qpr.

20.) 03 Jan 2018 18:06:29
BigJ70 sense at last big man

21.) 03 Jan 2018 18:17:22
mkloyal make up your mind you said mcinnes vknocked us back now you are saying if he wanted to come, how do you know mcinnes was offered a hundred grand a year more it would have been a lot more than that the sheep won't be big payers, i think you are just spouting drivel, people or the papers are telling you what to post, don't think you have a mind of you own

22.) 03 Jan 2018 18:47:45
Haha true blue. Sometimes the truth is out there and sometimes it's quite obvious. The information is ture and that's down to you what you believe but everyone knows mciness knocked us back because of the director of football situation and the players that were put to him. He was also offered 800 grand he's on 700 at Aberdeen and Aberdeens chairman bought him a half a million pound house. Pedro was only on 900 grand and our board thought he was the next big thing. You need to weigh things up as a manager and our board are a bit of a joke. We should be impossible for most managers to knock back but we are not and there are reasons for that.

23.) 03 Jan 2018 18:54:59
But if you know something I don't true blue then please tell me? You must know something I don't if you can accuse me of talking rubbish.

24.) 03 Jan 2018 19:56:11
McInness is on nowhere near £700k.

25.) 03 Jan 2018 20:07:57
No way McInnes is on 700k at Aberdeen. Only report I can find on his salary says 300k

26.) 03 Jan 2018 20:36:40
He's on 700 lads sorry to burst that bubble.

27.) 03 Jan 2018 20:43:54
Sutaurt Milne is a very rich man and mciness is on 700 grand! If anyone thinks a manager would turn down 800 grand to sit on 300 your crazy. he's spent nothing on players and has been rewarded by his chairman. its funny how people say don't believe the papers but then in this instance turn to the papers for information. Get a grip lads

28.) 03 Jan 2018 21:14:58
Stop digging MK.
Your posts are progressively getting more and more cringe worthy.

29.) 03 Jan 2018 21:28:17
Hahahaha, this site cracks me up! You state facts and it's just seen as lies and bull. Hahaha

30.) 03 Jan 2018 21:36:40
Goss 1st signing. Terrible considering we got young boys there who would do the same job ( barjonas) loan seems to be way forward from our board. murphy should be a must but think the board are wait to get rid before we buy.

31.) 03 Jan 2018 21:54:46
I haven't heard any of your 'facts' even mentioned by the respected sports press so really it's all just your opinion, saying fact doesn't make it true. Mkloyal are you secretly Donald Trump?

32.) 03 Jan 2018 21:59:11
Mkloyal your stating YOUR opinion, just like everyone else. McInnes's arse went. He's not on 700k, behave. That's not a fact, just my opinion

33.) 03 Jan 2018 22:29:09
Huey generally certain things don't get disclosed to the newspapers but if you know then you know, that's life. X

34.) 03 Jan 2018 22:44:12
It's where we are guys. It's going to be slow and steady unless someone throws a wad of cash at us.

But, I can't believe just how negative we are about new players we've never either heard of or seen play, just because of that.

Also, Mark Allan is getting a hammering based on what? Doing the job the board has told him too.

We've got the basis of a decent team. Bit of tinkering now and summer is all we can do.

I've said this before, we operate in a market where the odds of success aren't guaranteed, but if we can get 50:50 we'll not be far away.

35.) 04 Jan 2018 17:03:40
Agreed with everything you said Glasgow ranger until you mentioned Naismith.

36.) 04 Jan 2018 17:12:27
Mkloyal I think your talking rubbish as you don’t know this to be true but your coming on here stating that’s why DM knocked the job back

37.) 04 Jan 2018 17:26:47
no interest in mcinness

Craig, you’ve answered your own question, but the fact that the gullibles actually fund this moonchilds blog is even more laughable! 🤪

Mad Phil wakes up in the morning puts on his tin foil hat on and writes sevco with his rice crispies before he starts his day that is filled by one thing and one thing only and that is Rangers - an absolute throbber of a human

Just writes what they want to hear
They are that strupid they just keep believing him

Craig8688 - Every player knows when they come to Scotland they’re not going to get and more money than than they got in the EPL and they also expect a wage drop as they realise the money isn’t here 😏 they still come tho because of the size and history of our Great club and sad to say it but also the mhanky mhob too. Scott Arfield your talking 20000 max but tbh the boys a player, banging left foot, strong, creative and not a pussy who hides during games. 👌🏻

I think him and Rossiter in front of McCrorie protecting the defence will be a solid midfield three for us. and for the Dorrans haters-he’s an attacking midfielder/ Striker not a deep midfielder. be like asking Andy Halliday to play centre half and then moaning because he was even worse than usual! 🇬🇧

6.) 14 May 2018 20:38:48
It was reported a 5.4 million 4 yr deal which pits him on 26,000 a week

7.) 14 May 2018 23:19:44
Nonsense, there are no free transfers Arfield would of get a healthy signing on fee and be on 10/ 15 grand a week + bonuses.

King saying celtic will fold like like a pack of cards if no champion leauge what complete nonsence they have invested in players who they can easilly sell to cover the shortfall for champion leauge they ain't stupid.
This is sumthing we need to do instead of these 30 year old plus players freebies and loans we need squad investment with view to selling them on this is how we will catch up with celtic off the field.
king comments are just going spurn them on even more he sure knows how to put pressure on people at our club there is no quick fix at our club and gerrard must be a loud time and money to sort this and expection next season must be to open up a gap on second place win a cup and beat celtic a couple times next season that is more relistic target then build on that the follwing year if we get more then it a bonus but don't put unnecessary pressure on gerrard


1.) 08 May 2018 11:59:14
They're an even more fickle bunch than us. Imagine the meltdown when we win an old firm game. You can talk about how well run they are but the simple truth is they are in the current position they are because they have unrivalled access to champions league money that has substantially increased these last few years.

2.) 08 May 2018 12:30:46
Think your right Mike plus your grannies dug could mansge timco now just bark out go out there an play like you usually dae.



07 May 2018 15:54:04
Looking foward to next seasons i think we realisticly need 8 or 9 good players
To many of our players go missing in big games or when things are not going well in match they just stop trying and shirk away from there responsibility.
This talk of only needing only 4 5 players is rubbish if u look at who is likley to leave in the summer and the squad players we have that are not up to scratch we will need more than this.
The only way we should really be signing loan players is if there going to be automatic picks in our team due to there abilty and are better than what we have.
We should really be signing players who we then can sell on for profit and then reinvest


1.) 07 May 2018 16:34:20
If we lose 10 players we will still have a first team pool of 18 (that's how much rubbish is around the place) and if we added five with genuine ability and promote a couple of younger players, that will be about right.
Foderingham Miller Goss Martin Cummings Hererra Pena Cardoso Hodson at least are all on their way out.

2.) 07 May 2018 16:34:26
Also looking forward to the future. sell Morelos Windass and Fod while stocks are high and reinvest. As you said we need to be a selling club while reinvesting to become stronger. Only real way of making any kind of money in Scotland.

3.) 07 May 2018 17:21:03
Burnbank based on what i have seen from these players this season and your list above i would add halliday holt morelos windass tavenier posibly murphy and dorrans aswell
As there not consistent enough
and some off them we could raise funds for to reinvest in players who are better this is only for us to get stronger.
i would say keep alnwick mccorie john jack docherty goss candelias cummings some will be squad players that's 8 players
Not sure about murphy dorrans rossiter
would look to sell morelos tav fod windass cardoso herrra alves wallace should be getting a combined fee of 12 to 15 mill for them plus freeing a lot on wages for us to reinvest.
So this is how i come to my conclusion that we need 8 or 9 players

4.) 07 May 2018 17:35:45
Think about this ---- would SG be our manager if sufficient funds, IN HIS ESTIMATION, were not forthcoming?
No Funds ---- No SG ----- how simple is that fans?

5.) 07 May 2018 17:39:02
Can't do anything with Murphy and Cummings apart from buying them for next season and don't think Gerrard will want to use about 2m of his budget on them but might be wrong

6.) 07 May 2018 17:40:25
While I agree with some of your post, Craig, no club could seriously make those wholesale changes in one window and be left with just eight players, it's totally unrealistic. If you add Bates to those I mentioned that will indeed be ten out, and others who may not have set the heather on fire yet will be given the opportunity to prove themselves to Gerrard. I don't expect Alves or Wallace to last past January when the second part of the cull will come, but if Gerrard procures two central defenders, a solid tackling midfielder and two strikers to rebuild the spine of the team, the personnel we have left call fill in around that and we will have a solid unit.

7.) 07 May 2018 18:20:05
Burnbank if we do not cut a lot of these players loose then come next summer we will in same postion in the leauge as this year.
Am prity sure some clubs have made these kind of culls to there squads before.
we could use the likes ross lyon aidan wilson rudden burt middleton atakyi dalas 7 in total as backup am sure they could do better than our current backup players plus save us on wages therefor giving us more funds to use for key players.
To many of our current stars underperform on a regular basis to be in this team next year

8.) 07 May 2018 19:13:04
Players out
Moralos if decent money.
I'd keep
Anwick number 2
John and Wallace
Murphy if sensible money
So to me we need around 11/ 12 new players
1 1st choice keeper
3centre backs
Back up right back
Two wingers to push Murphy and candidas
1 quality attacking midfielder
Two other midfielders
2 decent strikers

9.) 07 May 2018 19:50:32
Not far away deanobear. I'd like to see at least two boys moved from youths as squad players I'd get rid Alves, as not value based on wages



07 May 2018 14:38:54
If king ect are not curently talking to external investers like he says this morning then i only hope that they plan to do so soon.
6 million pound threw a share issue is not a lot of money so we going need to raise funds from other places to give gerrard his transfer warchest.
i read the other day king thinks we only need 5 or 6 players saying we where the best team in scotland just after jan if he thinks we only need 5 or 6 players than that is a big mistake on his part we need a lot more than that amount the players recent performances have proving this.


1.) 07 May 2018 15:00:49
Why do you think we need more than 6 players? People seem to be getting carried away with this celtic team. Their centre halves are brutal, their right backs are brutal, left back is decent, wingers are no better than average and it looks like Sinclair and Roberts will be away. Brown, ntscham and mcgregor are average at best, rogic and the three strikers arw good but there's talk of rogic leaving, dembele will likely be gone and edourd is on loan.

They also have a summer of rebuilding on the cards and i can't see them replacing the players that will leave with better players unless its more loans as they won't spend £6m or £7m x 4 or 5 players.

We need two good centre halves. We need a strong central midfielder and Arfield and we need a 25 goal a season striker and hopefully Murphy deal made permanent. that's 6. If we bring in that along with maybe 2 or 3 loan guy's to bulk up the squad whilst getting rid of some deadwood we will be much closer.



03 May 2018 15:27:57
with this rumoured investment what players do you think the club should move for in the summer if investment goes through.
And do you think we should cash in on these players and if so how much do you think we could get if we sell fod tav windass morelos


1.) 03 May 2018 15:51:43
i think we should try and get some big names in on Bosman's like Torres, Yaya is out of contract at the end of this season as well. We would have to pay them a large wage packet but if they are on a free and there is investment then i don't see why not.

2.) 03 May 2018 15:54:55
In this day and age all players have a price where we would need to cash in.

Players who should be kept or loans kept unless ridiculous money IMO:

Tav, McCrorie, John, Jack, Dorrans, Rossiter (just to see if Gerrard can get something out of him), Holt, Docherty, Candeias, Cummings, Murphy.

Players we can do without and could get cash:

Foderingham, Alnwick, Cardoso, Wallace, Windass (not for buttons tho), Morelos (again for a decent amount only) .

Players who need to leave: Hodson, Alves, Halliday, Goss, Forrester, MOH, Pena, Herrera, Miller.

3.) 03 May 2018 16:07:05
Murphy, Cummings, Holt and Dorrans have proved they're not good enough, Rossiter is too injury prone and before anyone says Cummings hasn't had a chance, do you really believe he's the answer?

4.) 03 May 2018 17:22:41
Yaya and torres come on mate let's think a little bit smaller names

5.) 03 May 2018 17:52:20
they are only 4 and 6 letters long though?

6.) 03 May 2018 17:56:12
Blue genius i probaly would keep the same players u menioned plus cardoso and dodoo like to see them get a chance the rest can go.
This torres rumour seems to be going around a lot you never no toure that probaly a non starter tho.
I think we should be able to sell fod for at least 2 mill and up wards tavenier an windass 3 mill and upwards morelos at least 5 mill for him that would give us 13 million at least for 4 players that am sure the new manager would be gratful if he could add this to his budget.

7.) 03 May 2018 19:55:01
Do fellow fans think we would be able to attract kenneth omeruo an cameron carter vickers as our cbs next season both good players and don't get much chance at both there clubs.
Also should look at geting flanagan in on loan at rb to replace tav.
i think hyndman would also flourish under gerrard if we could get him
Nakkie wells would be a good replacment for morelos he is strugling to get a game for burnley so could be a good move and joel cambell from arsenal would be a good player to get aswell.
These players would certainly improve our team and could be available for reasonable sums of money.

8.) 03 May 2018 20:06:08
I hope it's going big pads we haven't heard of b because big names are all flapping up here alves niko etc all the best players have come from nowhere in the past Bartley bougy called etc i don't want old big names and we can't afford big names of their young stop dreaming.

9.) 03 May 2018 20:37:02
Ya ya toure honest to god man pure delusional he's on 200,000 a week

10.) 03 May 2018 20:57:41
Torres well end up way Goss and the rest of the Dross how can we afford any good players man were in trouble again skinto 😢

If there is a few teams intrested in him like reported then we should wait and get the highest price possible for him.
Hopefully we mite be able find a replacment just as good if not better
Not really in favour of mcburnie or marriot for the prices queoted for them

If they have got this is part of the retail deal does this mean we are getting no extra income for renaming the training ground.

Dk17 just because people question the things about the board doesn't mean they do not support the club and they deserve there seat at ibrox like anyone else.
If it wasnt from us fans asking questions in the first place and taking action against previous board then ashley would have still been in charge of our club.
Not all fans are going to agree we all have our opinions on everying from transfers tactics training manager coaches ect doesn't mean we are any less a supporter if we question the board transfers team ect

We should be broading our horizon and look for players abroad we could pick up some very good buys withing our budget who then we could sell on for profit.
Hear is some examples that we should be able to attract and withing our budget
Yordi reyna vancouver
Hamidou traore karabuspor
Simo thern malmo
Denzel dumfries heerenveen

Morelos and windass contributed a lot last season to the team scoring and assisting yet they get pelters from our supporters saying there not good enough ect if it wasnt for these two players we wouldn't even have got third in the leauge.
They need better quality around them
if we do not recieve bids that match our value for these players then they should stay at the club.
As around better players these two could flourish.

Dany ward or McGregor should be our number 1 keeper targets.
Skretel and connor goldson would be 2 great defenders for us.
If tav leaveas would like see club move for flanagan.
Like the look of the young lad kadioglu Who mols has recomended to the club would also like see club move for hyndman aswell.
Jack marriot would be a good signing bit pricey but knows how to score.
No sure bout paying 4 mill for mcburnie.
I we can conduct the majority of these signings above then that will make us stronger with a few others still to add.
They stories of joe hart evans rondan lucas are just that stories
