Jam Tarts are toast. Jamie is on his way.


1.) 30 Jul 2017 02:12:24
Yeah 100% Doiger. Especially after Cathro doesn't play him stating he's unsettled and isn't PERFORMING!
Cathro really did need to win that game. Can only think that it is now so imminent that a Club/ Manager does not want a Player going out to pick up a stupid injury!

2.) 30 Jul 2017 08:54:59
Jam tarts are toast? Isn't that a pop tart?



04 Jul 2017 10:15:17
Media now reporting that the deal to sign Dorrans will be completed within 48 hours now that the bid has been accepted. Good news indeed.


1.) 04 Jul 2017 12:25:52
Really hope so
It's good to have depth in the squad but depth in our quality is what will help us challenge for trophies

2.) 04 Jul 2017 12:26:28
Need him in on or b4 7th July for next round in Europe assuming we get there mate. Walker can be a wildcard tae.

3.) 04 Jul 2017 12:49:33
Hope walker does sign, looked quality last season when playing against us, think he would be similar to the signing of mccann

4.) 04 Jul 2017 17:16:22
Can only see it in a few Scottish rags and it's speculative at best. Still no further on than it was weeks ago as far as I'm concerned! Getting very boring now

5.) 05 Jul 2017 00:34:46
We are still four or five players short in terms of a squad, unfortunately that includes two first eleven fullbacks! Anyone that thinks that Wallace is a captain is sadly deluded!



03 Jul 2017 10:08:32
Deal for Dorrans on the brink of being completed according to DR. let's get Walker in now too but I hope we hold on to Mackay.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 10:26:12
if we are only getting the reported 750k for baz i would rather keep him!

2.) 03 Jul 2017 11:12:41
Why keep a guy who in 5 months can leave for a development fee? Take the 750k, put in a release clause and go from there.

3.) 03 Jul 2017 11:56:31
he signed a 3 year contract did he not last year?

4.) 03 Jul 2017 14:01:55
No FIFA Guy that's the problem he refused it him and his agent want wages that he simply has not deserved with recent performances he thinks he's entitled to wages on par with the high end performers take the 750k and replace with Walker who wants to be at Ibrox



02 Jul 2017 18:49:46
Daily Express and Daily Record reporting that Rangers have met Norwich's asking price for Dorrans but no permission yet granted to speak to him. I reckon if they still mess about after this tell them to shove it and forget Barjonas too!


1.) 02 Jul 2017 20:53:36
Why we messed them about with what just the 4 offers to get to what they asked for the player in the first place, if you ask me its our penny pinching approach on Scottish players as usual that has taken all this time and infact its been us that's messed them about, we should of just paid them the £1.5mil from the start or second bid and he would of been signed a long time ago, we do this all the time yet we pay top money for the foreign players that have come in but don't do the same with British/ Scottish players, just look at our past on this aswell its not just this season others aswell. But Really hope that is finally going to be deal done now and move on and pay proper money for walker and a new keeper imo and that would be a great squad

2.) 02 Jul 2017 21:22:48
This this is just getting silly now think we should just move on now it's getting stupid now

3.) 02 Jul 2017 21:27:58
I wonder if the 11th hr bid from sunderland has made norwich think twice.

their offer is possibly structured better than ours ie more up front who knows - it's not half dragging on tho!

hope good digs his heels in and tells norwich he only wants a move to the teddy bears

4.) 02 Jul 2017 23:26:53
It's no secret Norwich are struggling financially and need to clear a lot of big earners why should we go in with an offer they want it's not good business for our point of view



22 Jun 2017 13:53:07
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.


1.) 22 Jun 2017 14:18:56
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.

18.) 23 Jun 2017 01:32:42
We all know they are watching these pages all the time. But you know there's concern when they start to comment and reveal the obsession.

13 Dec 2017 11:02:53
I like the suggestions that we play 3-5-2 tonight. Given the injuries, we could still field a decent team. Foderingham; Tavernier, Alves, Wilson; Holt, Barjonas, Kranjcar, Windass, John; Morelos, Herrera

I know Krancjar is much slower nowadays and injury prone, but he is class and give him an hour or so to try and create the chances we need. Candeias and Miller can be brought on later if need be.

If we had no injuries or suspensions the team might have been:
Foderingham; Tavernier, Alves, Wilson, Wallace; Dorrans, Jack, Rossiter, John; Morelos, Windass.


1.) 13 Dec 2017 12:00:52
Why include Rossiter? He can't be better than the other midfielders we have, he never plays football! I'm not having a dig I genuinely don't get the hype as he's hardly played senior football

2.) 13 Dec 2017 12:38:14
No mcrorie? would be One of the 1st names on my teamsheet now

3.) 13 Dec 2017 12:43:16
After watching the game on Sunday we will need to stop mcginn in my eyes he ran the show for hibs 90% of the play and good passes went though him



11 Dec 2017 13:29:14
Maybe Billy Davies will come back into the reckoning as he would definitely not turn down the offer of being Rangers' manager!


1.) 11 Dec 2017 13:36:54
i don't think he is in a position to turn down managing his local newsagent never mind us 😂 personally wouldn't trust him with either

2.) 11 Dec 2017 15:01:22
I have just read the Jackson article and I agree with him. No doubt those who think it's the Daily Rebel won't. Remember they think it's the Daily Ranger so they can't win. Our statement was a complete embarrassment and for Derek McInnes to turn us down worries the rubbish out of me.

3.) 11 Dec 2017 15:46:37
Jackson just having another dig at rangers along with Leckie in the sun.

Everyone agrees the statement released was terrible and poorly thought out and managed.

His article has Nothing about Mcinnes doing an 11th hour u-turn. Jackson even doubts if Mcinnes would have increased his salary at rangers.

Wee Mcinnes led the board up the garden path and shafted them. Where was that bit in the article?

4.) 11 Dec 2017 16:38:09
That’s cause it wasn’t an 11th hour u turn dm asked for a guaranteed transfer budget which the board couldn’t do so dm said thanks but no thanks

5.) 11 Dec 2017 16:41:07
Baz the bear. I agree with u. I forgot the bit about salary. . I think that's pish. Derek McInnes led them up the garden path? Aye. he waited 6 weeks to go to his boyhood heroes then said no for no real reason. Aye right. If u don't think that there is more to this then that your choice. me. no chance he would have knocked Rangers back without good cause. no chance! He might not be right in his assumption but he didn't like something.

6.) 11 Dec 2017 17:12:55
Believe what you want. Just pointing out it’s NOT a balanced article

7.) 11 Dec 2017 17:45:05
how can you get a balanced article with the 2 biggest snakes in the papers like leckie and jackson, pair of worthless middens

8.) 11 Dec 2017 17:48:11
Getting the salary bit wrong. possibly. . doesn't mean it's not a balanced article. I love giving ma Celtic pals pelters about their conspiracy theories and how they get cheated never defeated. . we r getting as bad! We now just seem to want to read and hear things that suits our particular argument. . maybe I'm doing just that! . but I doubt it

9.) 11 Dec 2017 18:24:03
My point is Mcinnes was offered the rangers job. I think that is a fact.

The terms offered to him will be the same terms offered to anyone else I would imagine. Better terms and bigger budget than any team apart from Celtic.

In today’s herald Mcinnes was discussing the team for Saturday. Everything was agreed. Even the players thought he was coming. On the rumours page other fans are saying the same. I am just not buying DM is as pure as the driven snow and big bad DK and the rest of the board are the big bad wolf. IMO Mcinnes bottled it. No beef with you Dutch. I thought it was a poor article along with Leckie in the sun .

10.) 11 Dec 2017 23:21:51
Cheers Baz. I've not read the article in The Sun. Maybe Derek did bottle it. I just can't see it. I don't really like or dislike any reporter but for me it's their job to dig deep so therefore they should know more than you or me. I remember when my Celtic loving pal was going on about administration and I thought he was talking pants. but he was right. What will be will be. I wanted Derek McInnes to get the job as I thought and still think he's the best man for it. I still cannae believe he said no and that's why I strongly believe that there is more to this.

11.) 12 Dec 2017 08:21:49
If you read rubbish your fed rubbish. Just like Sutton Close your ears when he talks. Stop letting press and ex players invade your ears with their nonsense. Barry great player but desperate for a job. Enough.

12.) 12 Dec 2017 08:22:14
Dutch, I worked in newspapers at a senior level for many years. Journos are usually fishing just as much as the rest of us, make up as many stories as the rest of us and sometimes walk right into a winner, like the rest of us. They are sometimes also as gullible as the rest of us, and good managers and directors use that to their advantage by feeding them bull.



08 Dec 2017 08:35:36
Personally, I'm pleased that McInnes isn't coming as he was never my choice. However, the Board seems to be in disarray. He was clearly the Board's first choice (goodness knows why) and however they try and dress it up he has declined the opportunity to join Rangers. They have already taken too long to choose our new manager. I think Murty will do well for the rest of this year but surely the Board must get a new manager in during the winter break! As one poster has already said, sometimes in life Destiny comes calling and you've got to grasp it with both hands. McInnes failed to do so and some years from now I think he'll regret it.


1.) 08 Dec 2017 09:04:22
I'll bet he is already regretting it tbh. Obviously can not handle the pressure of being Rangers manager. Never mind, onwards and forwards

2.) 08 Dec 2017 09:11:08
Doiger you are 100 per cent correct and most fans will agree. To consider paying £1 million for a guy, although rangers minded, who has achieved very little was madness. The fact he previously knocked back Sunderland should have set alarm bells ringing as he is clearly happy in his comfort zone at the sheep. We dodged a massive bullet as the job was too big for him although taking 6 weeks to this point is far too long. Clearly murty and a rangers minded experienced assistant is the answer to the end of the season then we re- assess. This buys time to look at more suitable candidates and assess murty/ assistant

3.) 08 Dec 2017 09:16:11
I agree Steviec. Managers have to start somewhere. Look how long it took Fergie to win anything at Manchester United! Maybe Murty can go on to be one of our great managers. Goodness knows, we've had some muppets over the years (Davie White, McCoist, Le Guen, Caixhina) . Maybe if we win five out of six this month he should be given to the end of the season.

4.) 08 Dec 2017 09:21:13
The board seem to be getting criticsm for their actions. The facts appear to be that they were given no formal opportunity to speak to DM and also showed respect in waiting to make contact until after the AGM and the Dons Double header. While this could be true it is unlikely and the appearance of a very strong Rangers Board position is only the case if we are successful on and of the park. Clearly we are not and therefore the board will be critisced. If we were riding high and the dominant team in Scotland we would be seen as showing strong management.

We and the board just have to take the criticsm on the chin and keep progressing - Follow Follow

5.) 08 Dec 2017 09:44:21
I don't think he was the boards first choice, I think he was the medias choice. There has to be a reason it took 7 weeks, I personally think they've been speaking to some bigger names but have been knocked back, were probably seen as a bit of a poisoned chalice at the minute. Lower wage than a bang average EPL team, absolutely miles lower budget than a bottom end EPL team, but 100 times the expectation.

Think along the lines that we class the fee for Pena as huge. its peanuts in the football world, I bet Man city spend more than that on water bottles. This is the reason we went for Pedro and I can't understand how people can't see it, it was a gamble and I still feel it would have worked out long term. We cannot afford a huge household name at the moment.



07 Dec 2017 11:20:26
If McInnes joins us today we must all get right behind him. He wasn't my preferred choice and I still have doubts but let's give him a chance. I feel sorry for Murty but Maybe McInnes will give him a first team coaching role? McInnes may well continue to give the younger players a chance. I remember the McCoist days and that he never, ever gave the kids a chance, too obsessed with winning the Petrofac Cup. Bates, Wilson, Beerman and McCrorie have all shown they deserve a chance.


1.) 07 Dec 2017 15:05:21
Murty must be kept in his job with the youngsters, if it is DM coming in then he will surely see what an excellent job Murty has done there, and he must be allowed to carry on, hopefully there's a few more lads there bound for the first team!



06 Dec 2017 10:27:04
December will be a huge month for Rangers. We have six games:
Ross County (h)
Hibs (a)
St Johnstone (h)
Kilmarnock (a)
Motherwell (h)
Celtic (a)

The manky mob play Hibs and Hearts away and Aberdeen at home plus a potentially trick away game at Dundee.

A full house would put daylight between Aberdeen and Hibs and who knows, might just topple Septic from the top. We must get our new manager in NOW!


1.) 06 Dec 2017 10:47:39
Great post doiger needty be positive going into this period whoever the manager is that comes in will know fine well the old firm game will be crucial and could give the manager much needed backing from the doubters (as there’s always doubters ) and give the team and support a much needed lift and confidence!

2.) 06 Dec 2017 10:53:39
Doiger, the world loves an optimist :-)
But I'll go for that scenario, would certainly make it very tasty going in to new year.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 10:55:58
Dont start looking 8 games ahead when we’ve not win 3 on the trot since last christmas. people said the same a few wks ago how easy a run we had then we draw with killie and get beat off hamilton and dundee

Naismith scored 75 goals in around 300 games for all clubs to date and more goals for Scotland too. I think he knows where the net is. For me, Naismith and Walker would be excellent signings.

Well said Gary75. I'm sick to death of the BBC's bias against Rangers and blatantly biased edited highlights on Sportscene. As for the Daily Rag, it hardly merits mentioning. You are right. Had we even won one of the games against Hamilton or Dundee recently we'd be a couple of points behind. We MUST beat Hibs on Wednesday, no doubt about that, but celtic have away trips to Hearts and Dundee and have to face Aberdeen at home before the Old Firm match on 30th December. We should have Dorrans and Jack back for the last three or four games of the year and perhaps Morleos has got his scoring boots on again! Keep positive Bears and stop talking our team down!

It is worrying that Dorrans, Jack and Rossiter are all out injured. We could push Tavernier forward and play Hodson at right back. Windass and Morelos are must-starts (I would put Miller on the bench) . Holt is playing really well and we still have Candeias.
Foderingham; Hodson, Alves, D. Wilson, John; Tavernier, Holt, Candeias, Pena; Windass; Morelos

Of course McCrorie plays if fit but Pena could hurt Hibs lurking around the penalty box. Kranjcar could come on if we need to create openings if the game isn't going our way. We must not lose this game. Hibs play Septic, us then Aberdeen all within a week. It's a shame a whole midfield is out injured. How did Barjonas play when he came on - I didn't see the game.

It is a bit of a concern that Jack and Dorrans are out but Holt has been playing well recently. I'd play McCrorie, Holt, Kranjcar and Pena across the middle and Windass and Morelos up front. Back four depends who is fit (e. g. Alves? ) . Of course I have to mention Hardie getting a run!

Just because McInnes is a Rangers man doesn't mean he'd have been a great manager! Look what happened with McCoist.
