Mcleish to be new manager within the week, been telling yous for months. Here we go, big eck will stop ten in a row.


1.) 17 Nov 2017 19:27:11
Hope your right Eck is a great guy, although some numpty said he was an alky last week, keyboard warrior!

2.) 17 Nov 2017 19:50:38
I still want Mcinnes but big Eck has one the league on less funds than them so out of the rest I would take him especially being backed up wae Murty and Ferguson

3.) 17 Nov 2017 20:05:21
agree but not with fergie

4.) 17 Nov 2017 20:37:57
Wee need eck back in charge. Barry ferguson in some capacity, he would get them motivated. Come on what kind of motivation do you need playing for rangers. Here we go.

5.) 17 Nov 2017 20:58:00
Short memories couldn't wait to get shot of McLeish 11 years ago .
What a massive bloomer that would be .
Murty is getting the job next week.

6.) 17 Nov 2017 21:04:45
Fod how do you know he’s getting the job next week just because his price has went down in the bookies I think everyone’s price has went down and then back up look at GVB was second favourite the other day now has drifted so stop with the crap saying you know when you don’t your only second guessing like the rest of us

7.) 17 Nov 2017 21:14:34
Seriously McLeish? Short memories. He was a lucky manager the rest of the time he was a joke. Ten games in league without winning and he filled the team with some of the worst players ever to wear a rangers jersey. What has McLeish done except get sacked at every job he’s had since he left Rangers?

8.) 17 Nov 2017 21:18:31
Well said gersman

9.) 17 Nov 2017 21:35:15
I r right mprent111 his signings were a joke buffel Novo resigning Ferguson inspiring us to win the league kyrgiakos boumsong prso and of course remember that joke signing of a striker Boyd

10.) 17 Nov 2017 21:36:46
McLeish won English league cup and got Birmingham promoted to premiership didn't he? His managerial record is more impressive than most folk linked with the gers job. Won the treble, last 16 of champions league.

11.) 17 Nov 2017 21:37:11
i think if eck got the job he’d bring in alex rae - they worked together before and both know scottish game and rangers inside out

my only slight concern is ecks shown he’s good at galvanising a team lifting players and setting them up to compete but his transfer dealings were sketchy at best

for every novo dado and JAB there was a fanfan maniero ostenstadt or emerson.

however mark allen is supposed to be in charge of recruitment so who knows

just my opinion bears - i think Eck wld do a job

12.) 17 Nov 2017 22:22:01
One thing he does know all about and that is defending, he was one of the best, and at the moment we have to defend against them until we have players who can really get at them and neutralize their attacking men, attack broon and he will disappear,

13.) 17 Nov 2017 23:00:44
Agbroxi Boyd was a joke. Never turned up for big games, Buffel was always injured and kyriagkos was alright. Boumsong what 6 months fab. What about Ostenstad, Namouchi, Fanfan, Rodriguez, Jeffers, Bernard, Capucho, Egan, Mladenovic, Muscat, Bonnesel, Maniero, Nieto and there are more. He won the league because he was lucky. If Celtic hadn’t got to Seville they would have won the title just like if we hadn’t gotten to Manchester we would have won the title. Ye McLeish got Birmingham prompted but he also got them relegated twice. He’s a backwards step as a manager

14.) 17 Nov 2017 23:19:43
Would absolutely take him until the end of the season. does well, gets the job. And if he’s no up to it then he isn’t tied into a contract.

15.) 18 Nov 2017 02:59:15
At the very least if Murty brings in 10pts from the next 4 Games then the Club should announce that Murty will remain in charge as CARETAKER MANAGER! I would find this absolutely acceptable and a wise decision.

16.) 18 Nov 2017 10:02:43
We need a permanent manager who can work with this squad improve on it at Xmas and next summer without having a massive overhaul with the righ man management Pena and Herrera might still be a success from now on we need to be signing less players at transfer windows but of a higher quality

17.) 18 Nov 2017 14:56:19
I think McInnes is the sensible appointment. We need someone who can work with a limited budget. De Boer Gio would be great but could they do it without money? Murty might be worthwhile for the remainder of the season and then reassess in the summer.



05 Nov 2017 17:47:47
Latest news is we can't afford mcines so going for steve mclaren who is even worse tgan pardew. very unimressed with this if true. McLeish, murty and ferguson need to be appointed.


1.) 05 Nov 2017 18:16:58
More paper talk don’t believe the hype did the board not state that there was money to pay compensation if required I hope McInnes will be announced next week

2.) 05 Nov 2017 18:22:39
Every paper I have read says the opposite. McInnes will be announced by Thursday according to media

3.) 05 Nov 2017 20:00:44

4.) 05 Nov 2017 20:06:12
Fodtheprod I’ve been saying big Eck since before Pedro got the job and nothing’s changed for me he is the best man for the job and Murty as his number 2 and if Ferguson is in there too I’d have no complaints

5.) 05 Nov 2017 20:49:52
McLeish 🤣🤣🤣

6.) 05 Nov 2017 20:51:40
Looking on the positive side, if Mclaren gets the job I look forward to his first press conference where he talks in a comical Scottish accent.

7.) 05 Nov 2017 22:36:04
Wtf is wrong with McLeish getting the job? How many times did he rip them a new a***?

8.) 05 Nov 2017 22:56:55
Even with his shady dealings it has to be big Sam. He has always overachieved at every club he has been at. McInnes is a good manager but has never even gotten close to beating Celtic, don't think he has even taken a point off them. He can't even set his team up to be hard to beat. Although I think he could be a step in the right direction, I think it would be too small a step and we need to bridge the gap quickly.

9.) 06 Nov 2017 00:57:23
McLaren is higher calibre of manager than McInnes all day long. Look what he did at FC twente and has the experience to manager on all occasions and did wonders with boro.

10.) 06 Nov 2017 02:04:45
If there's any truth in the fact that we are not going for McInnes due to money then PLEASE NOT MCLAREN!
Surely McInnes would be on lower wages than him anyways!
If not McInnes then we must go for Wright.

11.) 06 Nov 2017 08:31:16
@fod - 3 managers? Wee bit overkill that?

12.) 06 Nov 2017 10:40:44
McLeish😂😂😂. Lucky manager at times utter garbage the rest of the time. The dross he filled the team with not to mention ten league games without a win. What has McLeish done in last 5-10 years? Sick of the old pals act. Why do we always have to look backwards towards old managers?



30 Oct 2017 14:56:48
Right guys heres a bit of conspiracy thinking. If pardew gets the job that would signal to me, mike ashley takeover. Pardew was ashleys yes man for years.


1.) 30 Oct 2017 15:33:34
Pardew was tied to Ashley and Newcastle for reasons other than football apparently

2.) 30 Oct 2017 16:31:22
I reckon once the Newcastle sale goes through Ashley would love a pop at getting in with us. Admitted himself he didn't have the finances to take Newcastle to Europe, for a much smaller outlay he could fund us to Europe and expand his Sport Direct brand. Just an opinion but the odds of it actually ever happening are obviously pretty wide

3.) 30 Oct 2017 16:33:26
When Pardew was at West Ham, he was doing a good job but he has a liking for the ladies and this was one of the reasons he left West Ham.
Lock up your daughters.

4.) 30 Oct 2017 17:24:37
Ashley ever buys gers it will all go sports direct stadium? sport direct sponsor? Yes we need investment etc but no thank you mr ashley he can stick his money you know were for i care .

If he does i give it 2 to 3 years and every fan will be wanting him out he just another who wants to line his own pockets yes they want to get a profit but still stick your cash were the sun don't shine

5.) 30 Oct 2017 17:28:18
An everyone who hated the fat man will welcome him with open arms.

6.) 30 Oct 2017 17:21:11
Just to clarify this isn't something I want to happen I detest the fat man.

7.) 31 Oct 2017 07:50:22
Not McInnes. He has acheived nothing. Two years ago when Daila was at the manky mob, any decent opposition would have won that title. Celtic were Shite, but Aberdeen were worse. Nae bottle. Nae hope.
Nae McInnes thanks.

8.) 31 Oct 2017 08:20:41
How many times are we going to go through this nonsense? Ashley = no, pardew = no.

9.) 31 Oct 2017 08:22:49
pardews problem with ashley was gambling the fat man had him like us on a rubbish contract paying him a pittance, lambiaas was also involved as well, pardew was lucky he got out when he did he owed them a right few quid so they mutually agreed to cancel the contract i think was 8 years, they wanted rid of pardew anyway as results were not going newcastles way and the fat man would not buy any players pardew wanted

10.) 01 Nov 2017 06:41:30
Liking for the ladies and the tables or maybe it was the ladies on the tables. Anyway slightly higher class than Billy boy.



28 Oct 2017 07:45:06
I can sense big investment coming soon. Especially if I win euromillions jackpot I will buy the club and use the wisdom on this site to succeed.


1.) 28 Oct 2017 09:05:39
Yes! I can see it now ‘The Fodtheprod Stand’

2.) 28 Oct 2017 09:24:29
Can we sit in our season ticket seats for the OF games Fod?

3.) 28 Oct 2017 10:21:46
Spend your winnings on something sensible.



27 Oct 2017 07:38:42
So I just read alistair johnstones interview there and he said the team will need some tweaking not a major overhaul. Then compared it to what brendan rodgers did at celtic, difference there is they had a settled winning squad when rodgers arrived. Added a couple of £3 million players and made them all better. So they must be bringing watty back as he is the only rangers manager to have performed miracles.


1.) 27 Oct 2017 09:16:39
I agree if Walter came back with those players, he'd make them fitter, harder to beat, more aware of where they are what is happening, make them frightened to lose and I think he could win the league with them this year

2.) 27 Oct 2017 09:30:48
Fid, you got your wish with pedro, and still your not happy.
Lighten up! Be happy

3.) 27 Oct 2017 09:37:00
If we are all perfectly honest the players that Pedro brought in are better than what we had. There is the making of a good team in there. We just need a no nonsense manager who understands that you can't always play attractive free flowing football in Scotland. Sometimes youve got to roll your sleeves you and get stuck in. This is exactly the philosophy that Souness brought to the club in the 80's and we all know what happened next!

4.) 27 Oct 2017 09:46:19
why should walter come back and risk his legacy trying to get a tune out that squad he’s done a great job twice for us let the man enjoy his retirement

5.) 27 Oct 2017 09:58:19
Would love to see walter smith back till summer and re group with perm manager mcinnes. pardew. be boer michael oneill. etc who ever it is but definitely no billy davies . or get souness in there he soon pin them all against the wall an giv them swift kick in the nat king coles

6.) 27 Oct 2017 13:00:49
how long we going to talk about candidates.

7.) 28 Oct 2017 07:45:27
I heard Walter wasn't keeping too well so probs not such a good idea to put pressure on him. 're the team- I've said a good few times that I think there is a decent squad there and with a couple of good additions and 2 or 3 going the other way, if the right man comes in we would surprise a few. The main problem was always Pedro and to see some people on here still coming on and defending him is beyond me. For me there is an obvious choice for the new manager. Big Eck won 7 or 8 trophies with us including a treble and all with a limited budget. Also won a trophy in England and did very well as Scotland boss, only falling unluckily at the last hurdle against Italy during a qualification campaign. I'm mystified as to why so many Rangers fans do not want McLeish back.

8.) 29 Oct 2017 06:47:20
Personally would hate to see Walter back. He did his time and was an exemplary manager and a true legend for us. And that is exactly how it should remain. He has not been coaching for the best part of a decade and we should be looking forward, not backward. The cold facts are that we need the same caliber of manager as Brenda. Someone with EPL experience, knows the SPL, its players. Has a good track record of bringing through youngsters but will also command respect from our senior players. That makes our options pretty limited. My own ideas would be to look at someone like Mike Phelan/ Paul Bento or Alan Pardew, although I think Pardew really doesn't like Scottish football. Chose Bento because he's Portuguese and unemployed, but has a decent pedigree. Mike Phelan, because you can't be that bad if you were Fergies right hand man right?

Murty has git us fighting again and its great to see. Maybe a bit hard to watch at times but at least we are still up for it. Wee note bruno alves isn't the answer at the back.


1.) 14 Dec 2017 06:45:52
It is great to see that we never gave up last night, however what was not great was the very poor passing that throughout the 90 put us under constant pressure. Alves has a poor game I agree but he is by far the best centre half we have. I just happens that defenders get looked at more as errors usually cost goals. Thankfully fod has great game.

2.) 14 Dec 2017 08:18:57
Cant believe i'm saying it but Alves looks poor.

3.) 14 Dec 2017 12:06:22
Thank goodness we have mcrorie then. Mcrorie wiilson partnership when Jack n dorrans come back i rekon

4.) 14 Dec 2017 12:12:58
I have to agree, it was Alves who was at the near post doing nothing but watch Ross County score on Saturday as well. He was better second half last night but I'm no going to miss him if he's off in January.



07 Dec 2017 22:06:16
I reckon mcinnes couldn't handle the pressure at rangers, he knew a few bad results and he woulda been out the door.


1.) 08 Dec 2017 01:21:26
he was never offered the job didn't speak to gers after approach he spoke to his mrs n decided too much pressure so declined to speak to us
he is honest will regret it one day that is for sure



07 Dec 2017 19:45:50
This paves the way for mcleish, I don't know why the board are being foolish pursuing mcinnes in the first place, he is tryijg to cover his bad results by knocking back clubs and staying at aberdeen, hoping for a cult hero status. Clown.




24 Nov 2017 06:23:30
When is all this uncertainty going to end at our club.


1.) 24 Nov 2017 07:59:15
After the AGM.

2.) 24 Nov 2017 08:03:16
Rafbob1. I think you are right. If the resolution (11?) is passed King and co should be able to attract new investment and put the club on a sounder financial footing. There is no way we will attract a heavyweight manager without giving him money to spend on the team.

3.) 24 Nov 2017 09:10:08
What uncertainty?

4.) 24 Nov 2017 12:45:02
lmao i take it that remark was sarcasm



18 Nov 2017 19:10:44
Good to see ricksen and negri back at ibrox. Could only dream of a player of negris class again and ricksen it breaks my heart to see a hard man like him in his situation. No surrender fernando ricksen.

In the eighties rangers were jobbie and in came sir david murray, I think business men would rather come in when the team is doing bad and the shares are low then invest and make the team better, makes sense. Murray was a game changer, its just a shame he never got the champions league he wanted us to get, it cost us everything trying to be the best team in the world but I wouldn't change it for the world, best times of my life.

Ibrox bouncing every match amazing players amazing atmosphere, beating the dhims winning trebles. Hatley, butcher, mccoist, gazza, laudrup, goram, klos, negri just a few off the top of my nut. They were the days.

Naw never heard it. Just wait and see, the speculation is just boring now. Murty is in charge and I think if he can get 3 points off celtic he should get the job. Listen to his interviews, he's starting to get fed up being kept at youth level. He will be away to manage first team soon, couldn't blame him.

If he wants it that bad he will walk and sign for us. That easy. Aberdeen, who the fk are aberdeen. We are rangers super rangers. We can still win the league this year its not too far away yet.

Haha aye say what yous want about me n my opinions but it doesn't change the facts rangers have been tits up for ages and only real money will change it. The board don't have a clue aboutfootball and to me it looks like none of them are on the same page.

Well it definitely should come into it, we need a gaffer with a passion for rangers, to have his blood pumping every match and the players feeding off it, not a jungle jim or any other thing you want to call them.

Said it for last few weeks. I think if celtic get one bad result there players would get a shock and maybe go on a run of bad games. They have not had to deal with defeat domestically so they haven't prepared for it. When your at the top the only way is down. Its our turn to go to the top and Graeme murty will take us there.
