It is good to hear that Rossiter and Kranjcar are back in training. When they are both fit surely that gives a classier look to our midfield options, i. e. Rossiter, Hyndman, Kranjcar, Windass as a midfield four with Rossiter as the DM. All we'd need then is a defence that doesn't concede and a prolific goalscorer. lol.


1.) 10 Feb 2017 11:42:38
Warburton will not play 4 in Midfield and there is no chance that Krancjar will be fit again this season. As for Windass, he has flattered to deceive since the hammering at their place. Hasn't kicked a ball since, either through injury or just plain bad form.

Think we need to look to somehow try and build for next season. I don't understand why Crooks was loaned to Scunthorpe? I believe it was for game time but has hardly played in any of their games since. Halliday has been poor in the holding position but I believe he has a future further forward in the midfield.

Don't start me on Rossiter. probably more chance that Krancjar will play before him!

Tough time ahead and we need to make sure we secure 2nd spot.

2.) 10 Feb 2017 14:55:00
Said it before and will say it again Windass is rank rotten. Crooks apparently plaid for our youth side and failed to stand out amongst them, says it all really.

Rossiter whenever if ever fit should be decent though, we just need to keep our finger crossed it happens.

3.) 10 Feb 2017 15:26:35
Windass, despite being injured a lot has some of the best stats of any player in the whole league, recently he was top of the list for passes that led to goals, shots on goal, or shots off goal

4.) 10 Feb 2017 16:54:10
If Halliday has a future at rangers then we really are in trouble



23 Jan 2017 08:43:05
Does anyone know when Rossiter will be fit to play? It must be a serious injury to keep him out for this long. It does seem that Warburton's are to say the least injury prone. Our midfield badly needs someone like Rossiter as the anchorman.


1.) 23 Jan 2017 10:07:47
He's a week away 😂

2.) 23 Jan 2017 10:19:24
He is apparently back running on grass so if all goes well he should be back within 2 weeks. I believe he has issyes with the nerves in his calfs.

3.) 23 Jan 2017 10:34:52
That's good news if true. I'd like to see him in the defensive midfield role we badly need with Toral, Hyndman and Windass or Mackay making up a midfield 4. Sorry, Holt and Halliday should be rested. Kenny Miller should be the first name on the team sheet!

4.) 23 Jan 2017 11:31:03
I don't really know when he will be fit to play, one thing I do know is the boy is pure gutted and is desperate to pull on that rangers jersey

5.) 23 Jan 2017 14:13:14
even when he is fit for bench no one knows what game time he will get because they claim waghorn is still not fit for 90 mins forresester is not fit enough senderos will never be fit do do appearsnot to be in favour and to crown it all they have yet to make k miller an offer

6.) 23 Jan 2017 14:52:49
Far too many unfit players and players picking up injuries that it really does beg the questionn about our training methods

7.) 23 Jan 2017 15:28:52
Took the words out my mouth Gosman! This seems to be happening a bit to frequently. Albeit I'm can't wait to see a fully fit Rossiter in our team. I genuinely think he can do the job and more of both Halliday and holt

8.) 23 Jan 2017 15:57:19
@gosman - I would have thought the training methods would have been similar to last season when we didn't have that many injuries?

9.) 23 Jan 2017 14:30:18
nobody like forrster anymore I think that boy has tons of potential and should be given game time either in front three or midfield 3/ 4

10.) 23 Jan 2017 15:55:21
I agree the training must be a bit much at times but if rossiter is not ready there's no rush to throw him back in he's got years ahead of him huge potential.

11.) 23 Jan 2017 16:27:36
i would be very shocked if our training had anything to do with our injuries, it's prob just rotten luck, if you think about it, we never got much injuries last season, I believe it's just football, clubs go through things like this all the time, we have been very unlucky this year, hopefully we have had our share of them and our players have a strong second half of the season, but I can understand why fans are debating this matter

12.) 23 Jan 2017 17:46:05
UnionJack hit the nail on the head. I was shocked we got away with soo few injuries last year. I can only really remember waggy tbh.

13.) 25 Jan 2017 13:33:53
just what I was going to say we are unlucky this season and lucky last season and we need to be very lucky next season when it comes to injuries, signings making their marks and financially we will be lucky if we manage to get out of this deal with the fat rat



13 Jan 2017 16:20:22
Andy Little has said he'd like to return to Scotland. He is still only 27. Any thoughts fellow Bears? He was a Northern Ireland international at one time. Also Leon Osman was asked on SSN yesterday about earlier links with a move to Rangers. He didn't exactly rule out the idea. A very experienced player and could be good for a one-year deal?


1.) 13 Jan 2017 17:28:30
No harm to little but he is nowhere near good enough for us. I thought he would end up at linfield that's his level in my opinion and as a linfield fan I'd of been delighted.

2.) 13 Jan 2017 18:15:39
decent lad but really not good enough and ha not cut the mustard scince

3.) 13 Jan 2017 19:32:22
Surprise by responses

May not be "Ranger Standard" but is any member of the current squad?

Surely the question is "is he better than what we have? "

The answer is he would add to the squad?

4.) 13 Jan 2017 19:35:32
Osman also said that if we had approached him earlier in the Season that he would gladly have signed but now things have moved on and he reckons that his playing days are over! He would, most likely, have been a better signing than Barton!

As for Andy Little I reckon that we need to set our sights a bit higher.

5.) 13 Jan 2017 20:53:37
A very good Ranger who served the club well but does not have what we require now to continue to take us forward.

6.) 13 Jan 2017 21:42:32
Been there, done that. Good guy but not good enough.

7.) 13 Jan 2017 22:21:39
Hes actually at Murray Park. he's doing his badges.

8.) 14 Jan 2017 00:40:24
If u are asking if little is better than miller garner or waghorn I think he would be 4th in the pecking order

9.) 14 Jan 2017 00:58:33
Knocked back a contract at patrick, apparently looking for part time as he has other comitments.

10.) 14 Jan 2017 11:07:30
How many goals have Garner and Waghorn scored this season? Not exactly a target that is unreachable!

11.) 14 Jan 2017 12:49:31
I meant to add that Little scored 34 goals in 66 games for Rangers. His last year or two were marred by injury.

12.) 14 Jan 2017 13:12:18
Believe it or not andy little has joined clyde

13.) 14 Jan 2017 13:16:11
Doiger how many games has waghorn started . he's started the least number of games of all the strikers and scored the most goals what does that 10 goals in 19 games

14.) 14 Jan 2017 22:16:28
What i was saying gers forever. Not our standard

15.) 18 Jan 2017 15:15:26
Little would be 3rd. an 8 year old girl would be better as a striker than miller



29 Jun 2016 13:08:35
Hodson due to sign later today - Daily Record online.


1.) 29 Jun 2016 13:38:41
Hopefully happen because he was on the raz with the rest of the N. I squad last night @ granny annies in belfast.

2.) 29 Jun 2016 13:49:08
not to excited about this one guys he was on loan at Kilmarnock last season I don't think he has the quality to step up to a team like ours (I know he will probs be just cover)

3.) 29 Jun 2016 14:03:53
Did he light up spl in a Kilmarnock shirt. No. Did he light up euros in a NI shirt. Never got a game. Great signing, trumps dembelle any day.

Seriously what is the point in signing player's like this, they cost us money in wages and don't improve the team one bit. Something is seriously wrong if we can't train a youngster to act as backup to fullbacks. What the @#$% is the point of having a youth set up!

4.) 29 Jun 2016 14:25:38
Jeez luigi you been on the happy pills again your usually much more negative ;)

5.) 29 Jun 2016 14:30:49
Luigi have you ever said anything positive about our signings? I wouldn't be surprised if you were a member of the celtic rangers supporters club. I thought hodson looked good when he was playing against rangers last season, Warbs mustve thought the same.

6.) 29 Jun 2016 15:45:49
I have to agree with Luigi on this one but I hope I'm proved wrong. Surely we have a decent enough youth player capable of stepping up rather than signing someone who didn't stand out for a really poor Kilmarnock side? If not what about Aird has apparently done really well at right back in a league which is far better in quality to the SPL.

7.) 29 Jun 2016 15:52:57
I'd rather we had kept Gasparatto and utilised Ryan Sinammon, that would cover both full backs and cbs.

8.) 29 Jun 2016 16:32:18
MLS much better than standard the the SPL! Calm yourself Stuart!

9.) 29 Jun 2016 17:34:30
Another good Young player signed, some fans will never be happy, when are people going to get it into their heads, rangers can't compete with Celtic on a financial basis until we start to get some serious money from our non existent retail contract. mark warburton is signing players he knows and trusts to do a job, see instead of slating players before they have even played a game for the club, how about giving the guys a chance, I'm delighted with the clubs transfer business and even if we don't win the league this year, our club is building itself up again, it won't happen overnight, it's going to take a couple transfer windows, let's just get behind the club because our board and management team are doing a great job.

10.) 29 Jun 2016 17:50:35
RFC infinity the MLS is full of USA internationals along with a lot of good experienced players from around Europe. It is of a much higher standard than the spl. I don't think anyone would disagree that teams like LA galaxy and Houston dinamo etc would pump every team in the SPL other than maybe a strong rangers and celtic.

11.) 29 Jun 2016 19:14:26
Luigi - I completely agree with the extraordinary vision been shown by Brenda Rodgers .

Dembele has had one days training and is subject to an £11million transfer to Southampton as a direct replacement for Victor Waggamama.

If only we were signing players like Pukki, Balde, Boerrigter, Kayal, Scepovic, Fisher, Fridjonnsen, Cifti etc etc etc etc etc etc etc.

12.) 29 Jun 2016 20:33:48
Bluepound wrong mousa dembele linked to Southampton. Reckon he's a cracking signing for celtic. Disappointed its not us he's coming to for only 500k.

13.) 29 Jun 2016 21:24:05
If we have to rely on somebody like Aird then we are really in dire straits. The guy has pace but little else. Hodson was apparently signed as competition for Tavernier. I must admit I don't know anything about the lad but if the management think he has what it takes for us then that's good enough for me. I agree we need to be careful with overspending while at the same time ensuring we can challenge for the title next season. Looking at the signings so far along with the current squad I think we have done really well so far. I've said already that i'm not sure about Joey Barton. I hope he is here for the right reasons and screws the nut. If he does he could prove the difference between challenging Celtic and not. I think Gilks will prove to be an able deputy for Wes and hope that we can find a solid partnership in defence. Striker wise I would love to see a young fresh striker come in and hit the road running. Anybody know if Alan Shearer has a son about the right age? In my opinion in his heyday Shearer was one of, if not the best, striker in the world.

14.) 29 Jun 2016 22:05:00
I wish Luigi was our manager instead of MW. Said no one ever.

15.) 29 Jun 2016 14:42:17
It could be worse it could be roy hodgson so let's get behind the managers decision and calm down. Stop thinking about we need to win this n that, let's do what the magic hat always says a game at a time and learn from it.

16.) 29 Jun 2016 15:12:18
Luigi why can't you just trust the manager?, it's his team and he decides who can bring or add quality to the squad. If you prefer other teams signing policy it's your right to choose who you watch at the end of the day! But please remember how far we have come since 2012.

17.) 29 Jun 2016 16:02:53
Guys i ask myself is this boy as good as aird
Airds home grown and a low wage. i'm with luigi on this 1. we could probably use the wages elsewhere to entice a top striker in me thinks.

18.) 29 Jun 2016 17:20:23
Player will be needed through out the season for the hard away games, type of player that will fight for ever ball remember the ever reliable sasa papac no one expected much.

19.) 01 Jul 2016 10:41:17
I do agree that we should keep aird this season and I don't know enough to comment on the boy hodson tbh but I trust he is good back up!



25 May 2016 11:26:48
Two or three websites now reporting tha tthe Kranjcar deal is all but done.


1.) 25 May 2016 11:46:16

2.) 25 May 2016 13:31:54
everything's coming up Milhouse!

3.) 25 May 2016 14:46:04
All i can say is one hand on the title joey niko jordan in midfield. If we can sort out the central defence wich i'm sure will happen and another striker would luv greg stewart or kane hemmings to join.

4.) 25 May 2016 17:14:05
Krancjar deal agreed in principle, following the same pattern as the Barton deal, to be followed shortly by medical and signing.
It all seems to fall into line!
Rangers have also served severance notice on the Sports Direct deal. Forget the Puma strips for next season and wait for the Clubs own official merchandise.
This one could end up in court but I doubt if the alleged fraudsters Ashley, Green, Whyte Llambias et al will be prepared to have the details of their dealings exposed in open court.
Well done DK and the Board, you are playing a blinder! Two fingers to the doubters now! Onwards and upwards!

5.) 25 May 2016 17:14:26
don't b sill Barry, one hand on the title, calm it janet! this is going to be a fight next year big time, we have many signings to make before we can even look at winning the league!

Who though Doiger, we all want our team to start winning or at least playing for the jersey! We'd all love some young talent playing for us, but who?! we need 8/ 9 to replace what we have now!

2.) 19 Feb 2017 23:12:30
There must be a boy in youth team better than Halliday the guy is an imposter.



19 Feb 2017 12:52:32
I see Barton reverted to type yesterday for Burnley. Thank god he left! Also, Rossiter and Windass still injured. It seems most of Warburton's signings were either unfit or duds. I'd have liked to see young Burt playing today alongside Hyndman, Toral and Mackay in midfield with Miller and Dodoo up front. Foderingham; Tavernier, Hill, Wilson, Wallace; Hyndman, Toral, Burt Mackay; Miller Dodoo.


1.) 19 Feb 2017 13:48:22
Hodson for tav surely can't mind the last time he had a good game



17 Feb 2017 09:15:32
According to DR article in interview with Brenda, Warburton hadn't spoken to King in months. That's worrying. Whatever we think of Brenda the article is interesting as he obviously engages well with the Septic board. King needs to move back to Scotland or sell up and get out.


1.) 17 Feb 2017 11:30:53
Brendan Rodgers is Warburstons friend, he isn't going to speak against him now is he! He shouldn't even be commenting on something that is none of his or his clubs business.

He is obviously starting to feel like the godfather in the SPFL due to the succesful period that Celtic are currently enduring, empowering him to comment on all things. He said that he hadn't spoken to Warburton so he doesn't have any more facts than we have via the media.

Why do people put all of this on Dave King. Is is one of a number of shareholders, not the full owner of our club. He is also one of a number of people that are keeping the club going with soft loans. Chairman granted, but there is no need for his daily attendance at Ibrox. We have a structure at the club and aheirarchy like any business. We are in the 21st century where video confrencing is pretty normal these days. I agree that he should attend all board meetings and these should be held monthly.

2.) 17 Feb 2017 10:40:16
What does it matter if he hasn't spoken to King? That's what the board and Robertson are their for.

3.) 17 Feb 2017 11:38:55
I agree. It tells me that our club is much better suited to a DoF.

4.) 17 Feb 2017 14:45:59
Alrus, you weren't reacting like that when Warbles was commenting on everything to do with the scottish game, and the media were sitting drooling like he was the saviour. Besides, we all know that Lawell is the real Godfather in Scottish football 😁

5.) 17 Feb 2017 14:52:22
i don't think so a director is a buffer between the board and managment and will just pass on bad news saying you can't sign him he costs money!

we need money before we need a manage as alex ferguson couldn't close this gap with no money

6.) 17 Feb 2017 15:20:18
Shouldn't come as a surprise their manager talking about us! Their fans are experts on everything to do with us, as well as employment law and high finance.

7.) 17 Feb 2017 15:52:59
Bhampot, commenting on the Scottish game and commenting on an individual matter, one which BR doesn't have all of the details is pretty different to the instance you mentioned above.

Anyway welcome…its all about the Rangers.

8.) 17 Feb 2017 16:49:43
Welcome?, you obviously are new to this page aren't you, i can be pretty confident that BR will know much more than you or i will ever know about your shady boards amatuer attempt at getting someone off the payroll. The old Rangers would have done things in a proffesional and fair manner. Not this bunch of cowboys. Just like you, they are new to all this.

9.) 17 Feb 2017 19:41:30
Im not going to list the individual matters that MW commented on, so i refered to it as the Scottish game, too many to mention. And i'm sure he wasnt in possesion of every little detail. So how is it different? . Your just posting one sided nonsense, having a pop at BR because he is the succesful manager at Celtic. I do though agree that it is almost definitly all about "The Rangers", long may it continue too.



14 Feb 2017 08:48:08
I do question Warburton's judgement and man-to-man management. Joe Barton was apparently Burnley's best player at the weekend against Chelsea and clearly he would have been an asset for Rangers on the pitch. The bust-up seems to have been handled very badly by Warburton. Had Barton stayed and Rossiter and Kranjcar stayed fit then maybe this morning's headlines would have been different. I see moron Sutton is spouting off in the DR again today. Remind me to stop reading that dreadful rag.

sutton the mutton should be in the viz magazine

2.) 14 Feb 2017 10:09:31
This is nothing to do with the manager its the system! Here he was expected to be mobile and cover ground which he failed badly at. At Burnley he's playing in a rigid and defensive formation where he has far more protection!

3.) 14 Feb 2017 10:21:12
Getting rid off Barton was a really bad move on my opinion I would love to find out what was said tho

4.) 14 Feb 2017 10:47:14

Surely you're not suggesting the someone imposed the system on the manager?

RFC Infinity: Agree, Barton looked lost in our midfield, had to take on too much.

6.) 14 Feb 2017 11:59:01
Barton is not good enough. He is a very poor man's Scott Brown. Did you watch the game against Chelsea? Did nothing bar run around and tackle. He is a disgusting human being who should never have been signed.

7.) 14 Feb 2017 14:30:07
At least he tackles. Andy Halliday just runs around

8.) 14 Feb 2017 14:58:29
A poor mans scott brown that's a cracker scott brown has never tested himself down in england because he knows he's not good enough barton has been at some big clubs and down to attitude not ability has cost him his place at these clubs what does brown do apart from run about tackling like barton as u claimed what makes him better a couple of stares at rangers players to pull the wool over the eyes of c****c fans and pure thuggish behaviour

9.) 14 Feb 2017 17:41:13
Stu is blue

Halliday does more than just run around. He gives the ball away and causes goals too.



13 Feb 2017 19:14:45
I see in more than one newspaper that King is now saying that £50 million in total will be needed over four years to get Rangers where he wants them to be. This seems to include £18 million already spent and he also states that he hopes to get some new investors. Another £32 million over four years sounds a lot but makes qualifying for Europe next season an imperative. Perhaps if Souness comes in as Director of Football Brian Kennedy might also come in with some of his cash?


1.) 13 Feb 2017 21:59:04
what makes you think they could work with king

2.) 13 Feb 2017 22:01:21
the more I think about it, the more I feel Tommy Wright would be a good choice. Solid, builds good teams with real fighting spirit and seems to be able to get the best out of his players ( compare MOH at St Johnstone to his time at Ibrox ) . He keeps a low profile which I really think we need just now. Just concentrates on the job in hand and gets the TEAM performing. I don't think he would be overawed by the challenge, and importantly would not look at the job as a stepping stone into the EPL.

3.) 13 Feb 2017 23:01:15
A manager who gets the best from his players is what we all want, Warburton was never that; look at how Dyche has Barton playing for Burnley and compare that to how we had him playing.

I would be happy with a manager who can get them motivated and playing for us.

The injury to Rossiter and also injuries to Kranjcar, Windass and Crooks are typical of the players signed by Warburton. Don't they have medicals before they sign? I accept Kranjcar's injury was unfortunate but he wasn't exactly 100% fit when he first signed. The whole set up needs to be cleaned out from coaching, training, fitness and scouting.

In difficult circumstances following Advocaat's overspending and against a good Celtic team under Martin O'Neill, McLeish still managed to win 2 league titles, 2 Scottish Cups, 3 League Cups and a treble! . He also made Rangers the first Scottish club to qualify from the group stages of the Champions League and we reached the last 16 before losing out on goal difference to Villareal. McLeish has passion, something he also had as a great player. Bring him in as Director of Football now with Kenny Miller stepping back as player/ coach until the end of the season. We could then look to bring in Frank de Boer in the summer with McLeish staying on as DOF.

Rangeken. You must have been watching someone other than Ferguson. The guy played nearly 300 times for Rangers and scored 44 goals as a midfielder and 45 caps for Scotland. Rangers won the Premier League, Scottish Cup and League Cup five times each during his time with us and he was clearly an out and out Rangers man. Sure he wasn't perfect, but who is? I'd like to see him back at the club in some managerial role, if not manager then no.2 to the like of Ray Wilkins (I like that idea) or Billy Davies.
