Billy Davies on the short list for the Blackburn job all I can say is venkeys please take him asap and kill off these roumers of him coming to us!
1.) 21 Feb 2017 23:50:53
Why the negetive comments about about bill Davies his record in the championship is pretty good had teams in playoffs saved teams from dropping down a league although not my 1st pick he probably could do a job can't see us getting a top drawer appointment due to financial restraints so why not might do well for us.
2.) 22 Feb 2017 06:25:22
Mark Warburton also had a good record in the championship.
3.) 22 Feb 2017 07:27:24
Yeah but Davies did better than Warburton in the spl, considering the budgets and players
4.) 23 Feb 2017 06:51:42
Listen kevin1984,mark warburton has nowhere near the experience of billy davies! Warbs managed one club in brentford, whereas davies done well with PNE, derby county and notts forest twice! Says it all my friend! I just wish folk would check wee billy davies's managerial record out, before they come on here spouting this and that about the guy!

we should get mcinnes in for a couple of year to get us better than the rest and once the contracts with the fat rat run out 0r once we get them ripped up then we can get a top manager and give him some kind of spending money
23 Apr 2017 21:53:06
I'd say today really showed how far behind Celtic we are and how many players need shown the door in the summer. I'd say 2 new centre halfs who can form a strong partnership then Wilson and bates back up so that's kiernen senderos and hill out the door then I'd say a strang holding midfielder and two more midfielders to come alongside rossiter kranjcar and holt then Hyndmen and toral will go back and get rid of Halliday. Then two new quality wingers with mackay and dodo back ups get rid of forrister and ohalleren then I'd say two new centre forwards and get rid of waghorn and garner and give miller 1 year deal who can be used up top or out wide but he will take a step back. So for me that's 9players in 8 plus the two loan players out.
1.) 23 Apr 2017 22:34:58
I thought team looked scared. We only had a go in last 20 mins it was as if keep score down. didn't like look of team when I heard it too many fward players and midfield too lightweight. Just have to hope Pedro learns lesson from this.
2.) 23 Apr 2017 23:53:10
Spot on Jaws, I'm sure he will be assessing who he needs and where, we were
far too negative first half, gave them far too much respect.
3.) 24 Apr 2017 00:13:41
Deanobear, I can't really disagree but we won't get a lot of cash for those you want out the door and if I could get decent money for him then McKay would be for the off as well.
Problem is that I just don't see anyone wanting Halliday unless Warburton comes calling for his favourite!
We will need a significant investment, even with Pedro's contacts, to get the players we need at the quality required and I do not see that coming from King sadly!
4.) 24 Apr 2017 10:11:43
Deanobear and TOMUSA, I agreed we need to invest in new players but as Tom said finances ain't great and to answer your question about selling not just Halliday but players like Forrester O'halloran then Clubs like Bury, Oxford and maybe other SPFL teams will bid and we will possibly have to give the player a cheque for some wage compensation if a player is going from 7k to 3-4k a week. Could also see some players be used in a Fee plus Player Transfers.
I do not want to see us taking huge financial hits on some players. For instance Garner 1.8m. I could see a club offering 500k and that for us right now is far too much of a deficit, I would rather see him go on loan with a Club picking up 80-100% of wages, this type of deal would be by far the best option for us financially! Even McKay, if a Club are interested instead of selling him for something between 500k-1m we should loan with option to buy as we know he has potential and like others at Ibrox have been used abysmally lowering their value!
But in regards to players coming in, due to finances 1 commanding CH with Wilson nxt to him would suffice, having Bates as back up with possibly Hill for one more year. I would like 4 CH's battling for a start and Wilson is a 1st choice, Bates still young but should get some game time nxt season so buy 1 powerful commanding CH with Bates and possibly Hill or another from development or a loan as back up.
We do have Rossiter, Krancjar coming back and Beerman who can play LW with Atayaki RW both these lads should be given a chance yeah it'd be great to go buy a player but even tho these lads are young playing down the wing a tad different physically from a CH or a CM these guys are FAST and from what I've seen from Beerman and been keeping up to date about Atayaki BOTH have tons of ability!
Currently we could have 2 young hungry fast wingers dying ti show everyone what they can do, could be worth 100k or 10m? Roberts at the Tic valued at 12m so you never know give the lads a crack at nxt season! Obviously give Wallace the LB spot as the guy is a good player he's solid and with games and confidence will do a job and again we must buy within our means and imo I want to keep Beerman in squad but i'd take McKay out loan him to Sheffield Utd or something and move Beerman to LW keep Wallace at LB he's been a great servant and I do not want to see him go for peanuts.
All in all we have a few players who at present due to the way they have been played and Coached their value and confidence has nose dived players such as McKay O'halloran Wallace and Holt although even after a short space of time Holt is starting to look like a player again. So point is I do not ever want to see a situation Transfer wise that resembles C. Adam or R. McCormack! Where we sell for £300-£400k only for the players to be going for £6-7-8m!
One more thing Bears, how much did King and the Board tell Caixinha he would have to spend on Transfers come summer. OPINIONS!
15 Mar 2017 20:21:13
Im fed up of all these pundits and journalists saying about Dave king should sell up it's a joke! What are these guy on about Sell up to who? Anyone with money who wanted to buy are club have had plenty of chances over the years but the fact is nobody has stepped up apart from Dave king and tbh we are in a much better place now than we were when he took control and we are going in the right direction and it's clear king and co have rangers best interest at heart. Think some people have been deluded by this 30million war cheast when tbh king stated I could take 30million to get the club back on track but he never said the very first summer I'm going to spend the whole 30millon on players all in one go did he! It's about steady investment over a few years. Just remember He managed to get the club out of Ashley clutches when we were in deep trouble and is still trying to sort out the retail side of things. i dread to think we're we would be if he never took control people need to cut him some slack seriously and on another note I think he will be happy to sell if it was to someone who is willing to take the club forward but untill then we are at least in safe hands With him.
1.) 15 Mar 2017 20:52:44
Well said mate
2.) 15 Mar 2017 22:10:12
Too many supposed to be rangers fans wanting to bring people down do you want ashley or king ano who i want get a grip can't stand these so called supporters spouting pixx get a grip and be happy that we are in hands of rangers men not ones that want to bleed us dry x
3.) 15 Mar 2017 23:05:17
Completely agree but also understand why a lot of fans feel the way they do given how things have been over the last 5-10 years. Once ashley is gone and a few of the other cases etc are resolved the club will be in a position to grow again
4.) 16 Mar 2017 20:40:14
Saw the first couple of training sessions with Pedro and main emphasis is on pressing opponents and only taking 2 touches before passing. Good to see.
5.) 16 Mar 2017 19:24:32
put this another way if at next season at this point we are this number of points behind celtic with david king investing verry little money like this season.
Do you still think investers and fans will stick by him then and not blame him.
the pundits and the fans no this is a big summer for the board and for this we require a big investment on players this summer to close gap on celtic so will be intresting to see if this happens.
6.) 16 Mar 2017 20:14:40
Deano on March 5th 2015 Dave King promised "Absolute honesty and transparency. " Do you think he gave that to the shareholders with his failure to admit he was part of a concert party? Do you think he did that when he failed to make an attempt to buy all of the shareholding?
Do you think he did that when he attempted to hide the share ownership in companies in the Virgin Islands and Guernsey amongst other places? Do you think he did that when he made it difficult for TAB to establish the share ownership?
A lot of you seemed to be seduced by his claims of honesty transparency but when push comes to shove, a good number of you just back the regime, time after time after time, crook after crook after crook. Your pleas of "what can we do? " ring hollow when you support him in posts like that and more importantly when you back them time after time at AGM's.
Yes that is exactly where you can say "No you haven't came close to living up to your pledges. " Your on what, your SIXTH dodgy CEO in a row maybe? If you don't learn now you never will and to be honest hell mend you if you can't actually see King for what he is. Why don't you just trade in "the teddy bears" for the three monkeys? See No Evil, Hear No Evil and Speak No Evil, It's seems far more fitting.
7.) 16 Mar 2017 23:32:51
i think king will suprise a few people this this summer and sepnd the money we need to get back to europe and the top of the spl .
im not saying its all coming from his own pocket but i think he will get the money from somewhere as i believe he is a very smart guy with a few tricks up his sleeve
27 Feb 2017 20:31:14
So there saying a manager could be installed before the Celtic game, but is that a temp or is that going to be the permanent one?
1.) 28 Feb 2017 13:11:50
They didn't say which celtic Game!
25 Feb 2017 11:03:20
I used to say a lot of teams tend to sit in and make it hard for us to break them down and sort of make that a defence for are players at times and I used to think if a team would just open up that's when are system could work if they open up we should carve them wide open but last night proved to me that that never even made any difference as Inverness were open and we were going toe to toe with them for most of the game and they were better then us. For us same old story get around the box and no end product no final ball but yet every time they broke they looked as if they could score. This bunch of players are just not good enough at all.
1.) 25 Feb 2017 11:32:06
I thought the exact same thing, "if we weren't playing against 10 defenders then we'd destroy some teams! ".
Unfortunately I was very wrong to think that, I don't even see how the team can regress so far in such a short space of time?
We looked a fit, hungry team last season with a point to prove and now we look like second rate journey men who struggle with the length of a pitch.
19 Feb 2017 22:13:36
Just had another look at the starting 11 today and the teams we signed these players from are 3 from a league 1 at the time wigan then 1 from league 1 mk dons another from league 1 Bradford and another from league 1 Swindon town and don't think most of those clubs were at all bothered about these guys leaving says it all. then from championship Plymouth and qpr were hill and garner were not even getting Game at the time. Not to mention forrister not getting a game at Doncaster and holt same problem at hearts then crooks and widass from Accrington stanly how on earth did we exspect this bunch of duds to ever do anything and the worst thing is there all on whopping big deals between 2 and 3years left for most of them and prob earning more money than they would get anywhere else this is really worrying.
1.) 20 Feb 2017 16:43:27
This is an incredibly valid point and one I made privately to my friends at the beginning of the season. Simply put, the expectation level placed on players who are frankly from mediocre backgrounds is completely misplaced. The players were signed by Warburton and while they were good enough for the Scottish championship, how could we realistically expect a bunch of English league 1 level players who couldn't even get a game for their clubs at the time to compete with Celtic in the league. I saw this coming although I had hoped that there was some hidden talent with them all that Warburton saw that we as fans couldn't. Even Windass who seems to be quite popular amongst our support is pretty poor and while he has the odd moment of setting up a chance, his overall contribution like the rest in the squad is pretty dire. I'm currently feeling very despondent at the situation we find ourselves in and it speaks volumes against those players we signed when Barrie McKay, a product of a shoddy youth system and ignored to the point that he was almost released until Warburton happened to give him a shot, is better than the lot of them. When we played Hearts, I remember looking through their squad and picking out all the players I would take from them in a heartbeat to replace the mediocrity we currently have. Would take Paterson instead of Tavernier, Souttar instead of Kiernan (heck I'd take a traffic cone instead of Kiernan), Kitchen as our DM, Cowie in place of Halliday, Walker instead of waghorn, Johnson instead of Garner, even Hamilton instead of foddy. Even Nicholson when he came on looked impressive and all that is just from ONE team. Warburton has went to England and cherry picked mediocre players from a terrible league (I will never buy that league one is a better standard than SPL as I believe Celtic, Aberdeen and hearts would beat those teams with most of their players being English championship level imo) . The lack of passion in our team is down to these guys. They are league 1 level for a reason, they never strived to be the best, to be winners, to be Rangers quality.
2.) 20 Feb 2017 17:43:17
It's absolutely shocking that we extended most of their contracts before even testing them out in the premier league first yet again we will be left with most of these duds till their contracts run down, this is a worse feeling than when we were in the bottom tier
24 Apr 2017 23:52:15
We need way better than that the likes off wiess and Dorrens that standerd of player that would match Sinclair Roberts exc not walker and same nicklson if we sign that standard then we all may aswell get prepared to stay as we are for years to come.
22 Apr 2017 23:45:08
Would love both of them that's the sort of quality we need to challenge that lot. Forget about all this Sam nicklson Jonny hays crap not good enough.
21 Apr 2017 21:56:16
Hibs are already better than most of the teams in our league don't think they will be anywhere near relegation next season tbh.
18 Apr 2017 20:40:46
It's Bristol city for me but that's only keeping a look out on results and hope they do well don't think you can truly support more than one team. I love rangers so that's my only team and My god that's stressful at times couldn't imagine supporting two teams would be like having two wife's 😟
11 Apr 2017 21:59:41
Seb123 that's excaley what I would do but I'd keep beerman back and have Wallace in front of him that would stop there wingers but also Wallace and tav can get forward on the break.
25 Apr 2017 00:02:49
For me it has to be hodson right back and tav in midfield in front of him then if Wallace is fit him at left back with beerman in front of him then holt and toral holding and hydmen in behind miller if Wallace is out then I'd say dodo out on the left I surpose
24 Apr 2017 22:49:17
He Couldn't even get a game at Doncaster rovers yet he has quality and should be in are team 🤔 Tbh him getting a 3year deal after just doing ok in the Scottish championship was another stupid move by warburton.
24 Apr 2017 22:43:00
I agree with knowger iv got it at 9 players needed and the exact same positions and the outs will be kiernen senderos hill Halliday forrister moh windass waghorn and garner
23 Apr 2017 13:52:32
I was really exited as I thought win or lose we would be right up for it and be real aggressive but that first half was absolutely pathetic!
18 Apr 2017 20:47:45
Totally agree and I do think that's what Pedro will target I think one of the reasons he was brought in is becouse he has a wide connection in Europe aswell as South America. I really can't see him going for any players in the spfl and I think foreign is the way to go we have done spfl with the likes of dean shields templeton bell Jon Daley Nicky law who were all good players at there clubs but proved that's not good enough for us same with warburtons lower league Englis players so for me we need to go in a different direction.
