Third bid put in for Dorrans. Fingers crossed. Quite amusing to see various reports about supposed Septic targets moving elsewhere. Don't rate Hayes that much so they are welcome to him. Rodgers won't be able to add many more big wage earners. After all, they too still only play in the SPL and must be paying Dembele and Sinclair big money.

Who cares about the manky mob

2.) 22 Jun 2017 14:52:45
It's on FF that the latest bid has been rejected! Again.
I hope it's not true but if so- I have had enough of Norwich and we should move on to another target 🎯

Either way I'm sure we will all find out in a few hours.

3.) 22 Jun 2017 15:17:20
Agree with you Jeseca, we shouldn't be held to ransom. If there is no room for negotiation from Norwich, just move on unfortunately.

4.) 22 Jun 2017 16:44:20
If dorrans wants the move that badly he can push from his end. Personally I'd put all our efforts into getting walker in. Knows the league and the opposition inside out and has an eye for goal. As excited as I am about all the knew signings not one of them (apart from jack) has played here and it might take a bit of time to adjust.

5.) 22 Jun 2017 16:51:52
We lost out to sellik a few years ago for players and it was down to them willing to pay more so let's just pay Him at hearts who hates us and pay Norwich the money so we can get the group pedro wants!

6.) 22 Jun 2017 17:18:36
For all the jerseys you all have been buying you must have the 1m hearts want . Time the so called big team spent like a big team .

7.) 22 Jun 2017 17:28:29
Big team but not stupid buddy. Why pay a million plus for a HEARTS player over 23 with a year left?

8.) 22 Jun 2017 18:01:44
I soppose we could hire an empty cow that we could put money in, don't suppose anybody knows empty ones going

9.) 22 Jun 2017 18:08:58
Dorrans bid has been officially rejected again, time to move on,

Probably have new targets in mind, as window progresses I'm sure we will find out who. I do kind of feel sorry for graham and his family, they were desperate for it to happen.

10.) 22 Jun 2017 19:11:52
Jes just because you say it's time to move on does not mean our management team feel the same. I fully expect this deal to be completed the player must by now be telling someone down at Carrow road enough is enough and force the deal through from his end.

11.) 22 Jun 2017 19:21:39
Yeah don't pay over the odds for him offer hearts O'Halloran and 250K for Walker and look at getting Kenny McLean or maybe looking at another Portugese player that Pedro has worked with maybe someone for the future

12.) 22 Jun 2017 19:33:16
Maybe you could buy walker on the season ticket money sales projected. Oh no we all know how that pans out 😂😂😂😂 itl be all whyte on the night!

13.) 22 Jun 2017 22:25:33
Sensing fear in loanheads "humour"

14.) 22 Jun 2017 22:33:07
I would tell the Hearts boy that we will sign him next summer and make good on the wages that he will lose out on. I am sure he will give 100% to Hearts in the coming season. If they see we are moving on and will wait for a season then they might just accept our last offer rather than have an unhappy player and less money!

As for Dorrans, as has been said, if he wants to come to us then I suspect that he can make it happen at the offer that has been made. If he is not that desperate to join us, we move on to the next target!

15.) 22 Jun 2017 23:08:47
Downing released by middlesborough no bad shout boys, what ye think?

16.) 23 Jun 2017 00:00:19
shef wed have apparently met norwichs valuation of good and made him a fantastic offer. watch this space.

17.) 23 Jun 2017 00:11:22
No that's fear because he has no humour, he is of the "Back in the day" bunch when all tims could touch what and when they wanted.

Warburton reportedly lining up a bid for Barrie Mackay. Get £6 or £7 million and throw in Kiernan, Senderos and Waghorn for good measure!


1.) 16 May 2017 10:53:47
Doiger, you are on the sauce if you reckon we'll get £6 or £7 million for McKay. Even at that, Pedro has stressed he wants to keep McKay and Mckay and stressed he doesn't want to leave, merely wants an improved contract.

2.) 16 May 2017 11:27:02
£6m or £7m megalolz

3.) 16 May 2017 12:21:20
Has McKay earned the right to an improved contract?

4.) 16 May 2017 11:36:22
2 million and mckay will be gone. Would love 6 or 7 million, but no chance.

5.) 16 May 2017 11:39:50
I see Doiger has borrowed our Dembelle calculator lol.

6.) 16 May 2017 12:50:49
well in dembelle money he is worth at least 20 million!

why is it because we are skint we don't rate our most tallented.

if he was down south he would easily be a 12 million pound player but because he is up here and we are skint people think he isn't worth money.

tell you what, if warbs gets him for 6 million he is still getting a bargain compared to what he could get for 6 million down south.

7.) 16 May 2017 13:20:37
If he was under contract for 4-5 years he would be worth around £4m IMO
With him having just over a season to go he's worth closer to £2m I'm afraid. I hope we sign him on long term contract and let him continue to improve and then he can be talked about in the £6-7m bracket

8.) 16 May 2017 13:42:45
dont want mckay to go to be honest i think in a much better rangers side he would still be our best asset and to say 2 million and he will be gone is not what rangers need we need to get good money for our best players yes let waggy and garner go for under 2 million bt mckay has had not a great season as i think he is a confidence player and when in a better side he will get better and better.

one thing I've noticed is when we give the ball to mckay no one helps him and he is being marked by 2/ 3 players at times.

in a good football team (rangers next season hopefully) he would have support and more outlets to pass the ball.

9.) 16 May 2017 14:08:48
i think he will sign a new contract but if they don't offer him an improved one then he will be heading down south where the money is.

10.) 16 May 2017 17:04:35
The difference is James Barrie would be nowhere near a 1st team down south. So no one would know about him lol. He had a fantastic first half of the season but is like a man down now at times. He got lucky with his goal and done nowt the rest of the game

11.) 18 May 2017 00:54:30
£6/ £7m for McKay is laughable, I watch and go down for a lot of league 2 football with Blackpool and honestly McKay would struggle to hold down a regular slot for them and would find the league really tough, u think Warburton would be thinking of him for the championship when he had his doubts about him up here? Not a chance



30 Mar 2017 14:48:08
Reading the article in today's Scotsman about Caixhinho 'cracking the whip' in training sounds really encouraging. He looks the part, a bit fierce and he has cancelled the Wednesday day off that Warburton introduced. With a bit of momentum under Caixinho I really do think we can beat Celtic in the cup semi-final. Football is all about confidence and I think our new manager will have brought that back in abundance. Pedro!


1.) 30 Mar 2017 15:23:15
Only time will tell.

2.) 30 Mar 2017 22:16:21
Warburton didn't introduce the Wednesday off thing that's been the way for decades unless they have a game that night

3.) 31 Mar 2017 04:32:50
so far so good from el pedro, a don't really care if he had a wee affiliation with celtic, the past is in the past look at King Kenny

4.) 31 Mar 2017 15:50:45
Dodgier football is not just about confidence you really do need to have ability to go with that confidence Martin Waghorn will never have the ability to pick the ball up back to goal turn and drive forward or link up the play because he doesn't have the skill set to carry it out but he does have the confidence to stick a penalty away each week because that's his ability level.

Joe Garner will never have the ability to stay focused during a game and play as a team as his ability does not allow him to understand that there is no Eye in team but he has the confidence to run about kicking and assaulting opposition players and think that ok.

Barry McKay has ability but does not have the heart to use the gift he has and never will
So the point is that your assessment that Pedro will install confidence is lacking any real substance it's down to ability



16 Mar 2017 16:46:28
Does anyone think that our new manager will give Hardie, Burt and Thompson a chance next season? If we get Rossiter, Kranjcar and Crooks back they will be like new signings.


1.) 16 Mar 2017 19:55:30
A hope he gives the youth a chance but not wan of us nows his plans but will be interesting next season

2.) 17 Mar 2017 00:09:13
I think he'll play the best players available to him, he's got no axe to grind or baggage to bear. It's a fresh canvas.

3.) 16 Mar 2017 23:51:51
I think young Thompson will definitely come into contention next season. Couldn't understand why he didn't figure in MW's plans. Looked a really tidy young player when he first signed from Man U

4.) 17 Mar 2017 00:19:41
I like burt from what I've seen, also a few of the younger guys ashmore, beerman mcrorie but its barjonas that really sticks out to me very tidy midfield player, looks the type that will just keep getting better but I hope anyone who does get the chance is bled in gradually we as fans expect too much from boys at times! Not overly keen on ryan hardie but hopefully prove me wrong

5.) 17 Mar 2017 11:27:30
I'm old enough to remember a very young and slim Denis Law making his debut for Huddersfield Town when only 16 and four years later was playing for Manchester City aged just 20, so I don't get all this stuff about easing young players in gently. Jordan Thompson is 20 now and Burt is 18. If they are good enough they are old enough. Look how many youngsters McCoist ignored and Warburton pretty well did the same. I like the sound of a midfield with Rossiter, Hyndman and Burt playing.

6.) 17 Mar 2017 16:55:23
Derek johnston was 16 when he scored the goal v celtic for league cup win 1970. Age means nothing. Is big Clint too old at 38 to score and then make last ditch tackle don't think so.

7.) 17 Mar 2017 18:17:21
The difference is Huddersfield fans and rangers fans have expectations at opposite ends of the spectrum boys! I've lost count of talents that have been ruined in this country by fans who heap too much pressure on a youngster and have them billed as world beaters after one decent game

8.) 19 Mar 2017 00:10:49
I hope he has the nuts to give some of the youngsters a go, youthful energy, belief and lack of fear is what we need! one or 2 youngster might actually have a major infectious belief that we need! Burt, Gilmour, Robbie McCrorie have all had major teams look at them, Hardie for me looks as if he has that goalscoring knack! not a great player but knows where the goal is ( think McCoist, Boyd, even Dodds frustrating players but goals guarenteed! )



10 Mar 2017 18:14:23
Apparently Caixhina will arrive in time for Sunday's game but not today. I hope he goes in to the dressing room and stirs the players.


1.) 10 Mar 2017 19:28:39
I hope he stays away from the dressing room, it's Murtys time!

2.) 10 Mar 2017 21:11:27
Well said gor at this moment in till Pedro has not goat a say this is murtys time let's hope he enjoys it and so do Wee

3.) 10 Mar 2017 21:14:26
I hope he stays away from Ibrox.

4.) 10 Mar 2017 21:29:56
Who do you want to see rick? As I think he is by far the most exciting out of the names mentioned mcliesh, Davis, McGinnis, wright, Gary rowett no thanks for all of them tbh all Shiite. I'm excited with this guy yes there is a chance it could all go wrong but if you don't take a chance you never succeed for me going with any of the names above is like saying we are happy to stay were we are.

5.) 10 Mar 2017 21:49:13
Yeh good idea Rick, let's bring back Alec or Ali or better than that let's give wee Barry a chance or even Billy, all these good Rangers lads who know how the club works . yeh let's do that!

6.) 10 Mar 2017 21:57:26
It's an away game .

7.) 10 Mar 2017 22:00:32
I hope he plays a 5 3 2 and hits them on the counter with MOH and Barry up front play Wallace in the centre of defence tae take dembelle oot the game wae Hill Wilson Halliday left wingback godson right n a midfield of tav toral n hyndman but let Barry run at brown n get him sent aff

8.) 10 Mar 2017 23:01:29
Well said deano there is to many people on here and the news stating that European managers aren't the answer look at Paul le guen yes he was a disaster but what about dick advocatt if Pedro is using rangers as a steping stone to England then fine but if he wants a decent club he's goat to prove him self and do well with rangers so all use doubters quit slating the guy and get behind him

9.) 10 Mar 2017 23:34:40
Lets all give the guy a chance, we have to remember the past 5 years and it is still going to take time. let's give our full support! We will get ther eventually, we r the glasgow rangers!

10.) 10 Mar 2017 23:43:00
I will welcome any manager who gets to lead this great club. Maybe optimistic but I feel he will get some cash to spend otherwise why would he leave a rich club to take over a club with no resources regardless of how great we are?
I think it's a blessing in disguise being so far behind the tramps in the league. They realised they had to dig deep and go for it after we beat the in the cup and I think the realisation that we are a bit behind now is not lost on the board who have brought an exciting coach with decent credentials on a reported £800k per Annum.
He got to Europa league final as an assistant and to CONCAF Champions league final as a manager and got relegation threatened side to 7th in Portuguese league and Mexican league and cup double so he's no mug.
I know how good Le Guens record was before he took over before you all start lol but seriously I'm positive about the appointment and with a bit of luck we might just gather a bit of momentum to stop the treble in cup tie and/ or beat them at Ibrox to end league undefeated run that's if we don't end that on Sunday.
Got to say we might just sneak it on Sunday, the 2-1 game lto was quite close, it's not like they can win the league on Sunday and after our 3-0 win V Killy our only time we had scored 3 against top flight opposition equaled V St Johnstone then doubled against Hamilton in past 2 games we must a chance of scoring against an overrated side who win with ease due to opposition sitting off and allowing them to attack them.
If you attack them they are vulnerable and beatable 🔴⚪🔵💪🏻

11.) 11 Mar 2017 00:22:29
I welcome the new guy but al be seeing what the odds are on him being away before the turn of the year and sticking £20 on it if it's anymore than 5-1

12.) 11 Mar 2017 13:06:34
Agbroxi yeah i'm sure Dembele would be quaking in his boots at thought of wallace marking him

13.) 11 Mar 2017 12:29:17
Can't believe the Pish McAvennie has come out with, don't know where all this rubbish about a record score for them has come from anyway, they had 2 victories over Motherwell and Accies by 2-0 at home and the media seem to think they'll annihilate us, and if anything we are coming onto a game now, am I missing something here because I simply don't get it.

The World and his wife are having a go at Pedro's signings. Alex Rae and now today Ray Wilkins, the latter saying he should have raided Chelsea' for their young players. Isn't that we Warburton tried with Arsenal youngsters? Bad enough the like of Sutton, Hartson, Brazil and Dalglish all gleefully having a go but two of our ex-players? Shut the FU all of them and come on Pedro. In Pedro we trust! By God I'll love it if we return and win the SPL THIS SEASON.


1.) 26 Jun 2017 00:30:53
Just journalists searching for statements that they can turn into controversial headlines to sell papers i reckon.

2.) 26 Jun 2017 09:21:56
Or journalists being approached by ex players who like to see their name in print

3.) 26 Jun 2017 09:23:15
We shouldn't be taking Benfica B players, however we should Chelsea youth players. Love that logic.

4.) 26 Jun 2017 12:22:39
Wilkins thoughts lie with helping Chelsea Long term rather than rangers



24 Jun 2017 12:06:09
With Rangers now apparently preparing to bid £1 million for Kenny McLean, can't we learn lessons about our youth players? I didn't realise he was one of our youth players. Perhaps if he had been given a chance to come through the ranks we would have had him in the first team anyway without having to pay £1 million to the Sheep for him! I've said before on here about giving the like of Hardie and Burt a chance to push through wouldn't be a bad thing. It would be galling if three years down the line we buy Hardie from another team for £2 or £3 million!


1.) 24 Jun 2017 13:30:28
It's down to different managers and different taste in players. Would he ever have became an accomplished player with us? Probs wouldn't have been given the chance.

2.) 24 Jun 2017 14:41:14
Good point and you often post supporting youth development. Burt deserves a chance to prove himself, Hardie I'm not so sure he'll stake a claim like a Parlane or Johnstone. Can't see it. I do think we should be putting in decent offers for Scottish players and reading about their signings instead of bids being rejected. Didn't hear a single one of those about a Portuguese, Colombian or Mexican.

3.) 24 Jun 2017 15:33:55
From what I'm told Pedro has lots of the 19s training with first team for pre season and he hopes some will step up. if not he hopes to loan them out to spl clubs and get them game time and have the younger kids play in new development games

4.) 24 Jun 2017 16:05:44
Doiger. Its not as simple as that. Boys develop at different rates and times. Look at Jamie Vardy for instance. Some boys talent won't sprout till later on and some boys physically won't grow until later too. The youth teams have to decide who might be a good prospect to keep, prospect being the operative word. Nobody has a crystal ball to know how a 15 year old etc will turn out when he's 21, 23 or 25 etc.

5.) 24 Jun 2017 20:57:53
It happens so often you'd think clubs would learn their lesson.

Pogba and Matic are just two of the names that spring to mind. Let go for peanuts and ended up costing United and Chelsea a fortune to get them back.

Pedro has shown faith in lads such as Bates, Beerman and Barjonas. Hopefully he'll continue to gradually include other youngsters in the first team throughout next season.



20 Jun 2017 12:13:30
Any thoughst on what Pedro's starting XI should be for Europa League tie on 29th June? Trying to remember all the new signings! My team in 4-4-2 (assuming all fit and available) :
Foderingham; Tavernier, Alves, Cardoso, Wallace; Jack, Dorrans, Pena, Mackay, Morelos, Dalcio.


1.) 20 Jun 2017 12:26:07
Would say that team could be a good shout

Would like to see us get a new right back. Don't think Gav is cuttin it anymore

2.) 20 Jun 2017 12:37:30
Alves won't be playing as he is on international duty until beginning july. Mckay probably not either. The 2 mexicans i can't see being involved either. Or highly unlikely.

My guess would be
Foderingham, tav, cardoso, bates, wallace, jack, kracjaer, canderias, dalcio, morelos, miller.

My own opinion is we are still a few players short. Must sign dorrens and walker. We must get a right back and i would see how we progress through next 2 rounds in europe if we do get through them. If money was to permit try and get a good quality cm. One at 2 to 3 million. For me jack is fine for spl in europe its doubtful.

3.) 20 Jun 2017 12:43:00
Alves won't be there he is away with Portugal so it will be Wilson and cardoso at centre back and as for dorrens and the Mexicans it really depends on how quickly they get hear will they be fit after only 5days to a weeks training? Also I can see kranjcar starting

4.) 20 Jun 2017 13:01:52
alves and Wilson are out, dorrasn doesn't play for rangers so hows he in your team?

I think he will line up 4-2-3-1 for the 1st leg of the 1st round.

Tavernier Cardoso Bates Wallace
jack Krancjar
candias miller McKay

Hopefully we will have all our players back and fully fit for the second round with hopefully dorrans and walker. Then our first team should look like this:

Tavernier Cardoso Alves Wallace
jack dorrans
Candias pena Walker

Kenny miller will be super sub this year and herra, McKay, dalcio, Wilson, bates, rossitor and holt will be used as squad players

5.) 20 Jun 2017 13:32:06
Why do folk put teams up with players out of position. I'm seeing Dalcio up front when he's a winger. Dorrans in defensive midfield when he's an attacking midfielder.

6.) 20 Jun 2017 13:56:40
Why slate someone for having Dorrans in their team when he doesn't paly for us then put in Walker?

As mexicans aren't here yet and leaving out anyone we haven't signed. 4-2-3-1 for the first leg.


Tav Cardoso Bates Wallace

Holt Jack

Miller Kranjcar Dalcio


7.) 20 Jun 2017 15:31:18
These posts are nonsense. The last time I checked football rules, it seems we aren't allowed to play players that are not Rangers players, so no Walker, no Dorrans, highly unlikely the two Mexicans. Get real, folks.

8.) 20 Jun 2017 15:31:41
if you read it properly I said we would "hopefully have dorrans and walker" for the second round



19 Jun 2017 18:10:27
Great business done by Pedro in the transfer market backed by King and the Board, wherever the money has come from! I'm really excited about the Portuguese and Mexican contingent but also about Dorrans, Morelos and Jack. Surely we can come very close next season and a run into the Europa League would also be good.




17 Jun 2017 09:56:21
Rant time. I see Hartson is doing a Sutton by attacking Rangers in the daily rag. They must be worrie but they must also have little to do other than attack the mighty Gers. Also, either pay the fee for Dorrans or forget it and tell Hearts to get stuffed and hold on six months and get him for sweet FA! End of rant. Off to the beach.


1.) 17 Jun 2017 13:49:55
Yeah hartson the self proclaimed "tell it how it is" journalist! 😅😅😅 what a joke! Just another example player with a biased green tinted agenda

The new signings are fantastic news but we can't just throw away some of our young Scottish talent like Mackay, Bates, Hardie, Burt, Wilson. Mackay might thrive with the new signings in the team. I also hope Jason Holt stays as a squad player and Tav also stays to fight for his place.

Could be a loan signing joscro, if we can afford his wages. He'd certainly be better than Dembele

Apart from us never being able to come close to affording someone like Batashuyi for that matter, only the top half a dozen or so clubs in the EPL could do so. And the celtic mob couldn't afford him either, just to put things in perspective. I'm delighted with the signings so far and hopefully those to come and I have to say that the board and King have put their money where their mouths are.

Agreed and Pedro is also apparently going to try and sign the Mexican striker Herrera who is an internationalist.

From what I've read about Carlos Pena I think he would be a very good signing. Tough, Latin American midfielder and good on the ball and alongside Rossiter and Kranjcar it sounds great!

Halliday apparently off to Azerbaijan on loan and Forest interested in Mackay. I'd keep Crooks in the hope he recovers from injury (never had a chance under Warburton) and Dodoo never really got a chance either. Get rid of Kiernan, Hodson, Waghorn, et al, if on loan in the SPL fine.

Rangers as high as 10-1 with some bookies to win the SPL title. That's got to be worth £100 quid of my money! That price is with Bet Victor.

wee-ecky. What does the 'wee' refer to? I wonder. But lowering the tone of a free debate is crass. I am entitled to my opinion just as you are. Having suffered watching Waghorn and Garner and their pathetic efforts in front of goal Hardie I'm sure couldn't do worse. I accept that the new signings are ahead of him in the pecking order. I hope for Pedro's sake that the new boys do the business. Why have you got to be about 24 years old to be allowed to play in the first team.

16 Jun 2017 10:29:25
Nice to see the positive attitude towards our youngsters persists. Hardie has got to be better than the useless Waghorn and Garner. What do we do, loan him out forever? Injuries do happen and having Hardie at the club as back up is important.
