I'm nervous boys.

I thought Murty was a breath of fresh air from Warburton, doing a solid job in various ways. His set up both mentally and way of play has been sound. A wobbly start but he's achieved more in weeks than Warburton did in months.

So, I am nervous we might go backwards again under our new boss. I am willing to give him a chance like every other failure and success previous to him. We must get off this merry go round of mediocracy.


1.) 13 Mar 2017 12:17:58
it doesn't matter, he's here and we must back him.

2.) 13 Mar 2017 13:00:31
He gets my 100% support. I have my doubts about the appointment but having a little caution about someone's ability or their appropriateness for the role doesn't stop you supporting them.

3.) 13 Mar 2017 18:56:48
Don't be, Pedro is going to build from the back and make us difficult to beat first and foremost like Souness did, so should be more about teamwork and fighting for it as well as good football, he wants to win, more emphasis on getting the results rather than possession.



09 Mar 2017 01:51:06
Pedro being announced shortly it's all tied up.


1.) 09 Mar 2017 15:24:45
I thought it had stalled somehow?

First post on this site. Happy to be here đź‘Ť

2.) 09 Mar 2017 13:29:44
Friday afternoon apparently press conference was pushed back to that day so (I'm just assuming here) that's when he will be unveiled



21 Feb 2017 02:55:52
Reports suggesting Wilson has been offered the DoF after interview in London.


1.) 21 Feb 2017 18:04:59
Any manager coming in is going to want clarity on transfer budget not just wage budget, if we have money why not try and buy Ashley out so we can put money into club through merchandise. We have no money unless there is a major investor coming in we'll never get the likes of de boer or anyone with a chance of going to EPL

2.) 21 Feb 2017 22:46:26
"if we have money why not try and buy Ashley out so we can put money into club through merchandise. "

If only! If the solution was that simple, they'd have done it long before now. I doubt Ashley would sell at the moment no matter how much he is offered. It seems this is now personal from his point of view. He's digging his heels in and even though most fans have boycotted the merchandise, he isn't for walking away and cutting his losses



11 Feb 2017 23:50:49
For me, De Boers, 'I would listen' couldn't be any clearer.


Of course he would only come if everything was in place. If there is no money, then why would he risk it.

This Rangers board must set their stall out, could King be the one to have the magic hat with which he pulls out a rabbit named Frank?


1.) 12 Feb 2017 00:48:50
Did u not see what mess frank d Boer got inter Milan into?

2.) 12 Feb 2017 00:56:14
Hopefully it may happen

3.) 12 Feb 2017 04:09:02
Caw1, inter Milan were in a mess before de doer was ever involved with them. You can't blame mancini's mess on him. The inter board and fans are even more impatient than us lot. I'm not saying he should get the job but, I'd like rangers to be ambitious in their pursuit of the next manager.

4.) 12 Feb 2017 04:21:42
Inter Milan were in a state with expectations to be the best in a league where there were teams miles a head. Juve, napoli, roma, fiorentina and lazio were all further a head of inter than celtic are of us. They would do a good job for us and what players wouldn't be inspired to play for them certainly get more out of them than a city banker. Plus Brenda as a manager does well in the first season then stinking in the ones after Brenda does not have the same pedigree as the de boers

{Ed001's Note - while I agree with you on Inter, to be fair to Rodgers he was terrible in his first season with Liverpool, it was his second one that was excellent.}

5.) 12 Feb 2017 08:33:37
Yeah that's true ed but he never had two good seasons in a row

{Ed001's Note - not yet anyway, difficult to see what he could possibly do to stop Celtic winning the league again next season though!}

6.) 12 Feb 2017 09:23:35
What they need to do is get de boar on board for the summer. And appoint an intrem manager in the meantime

7.) 12 Feb 2017 14:26:10
For the time being I would like a team that can beat Ross C, Accies and Stj at home and the rest can take care of itself.

8.) 13 Feb 2017 01:29:34
Caw1, you mention his time in Milan but what about his time at Ajax? I might be wrong as I don't know the facts, but my guess is the Phillips owned PSV would be financially healthier than Ajax and he guided Ajax to 4 consecutive titles in a league that's probably a wee bit more competitive than ours.

9.) 13 Feb 2017 02:59:42
Bears. It seems we have mentioned every possible candidate that could take over either full time or till end of season BUT the answer is right in front of our eyes! MURTY! he will take charge of Morton game AND if the team plays well he'll get the Dundee game AND again if all goes well then we stick with him till end of season. He knows the set up has been around the players has prob heard their gripes SO with the help of Miller probably then Murty it is unless the man really messes up. This will giv more time for the board to find someone.

Also is Mcparland away? I know he will go but has it already happened?
We have a squad who should be securing 2nd imo the main reason why we have not achieved this is because Warbs used a system the players found difficult resulting in the players becoming more and more unconfident players going out on the pitch feeling they were already up against not only the opposition but trying to play a way that they were not happy with this breeds discontent and players heads going down when going a goal down! .

Really hope to see Rossiter back soon with him in midfeild with Hyndman and McKay and imo Windass. O'Halloran or Forrester on the wings

10.) 13 Feb 2017 08:29:25
Rodgers success was a lot to do with Suarez imo. When he left Rodgers went down the pan at Liverpool



22 Jun 2016 15:39:14
Gilks arrives for talks. Good good keeper. Brilliant acquisition if he joins.


1.) 22 Jun 2016 20:03:20
3 games in 2 year?

2.) 22 Jun 2016 21:26:47
It's a fair point Bongo if accurate. However I don't think lack of games quite applys the same to keepers. The lad is a solid shot stopper, clearly a back up for WFOD. Time always tells but I feel it's s solid signing if the deal is done.

I think most of us need to get a grip. This comp has come far too early for a team that has had so many changes.

We can not afford to start sacking managers who are in their managerial infancy with the club. It's time for calmness.

Now we focus on the season ahead and that's all. We would have been lucky to get past the next team on that current form.

There are a couple of good, good players now at the club. Jack looks great, Cardoso is very composed and Niko will be a sound. We have to accept that these players alone show progress. The rebuilding job is a long long process with lots of hard losses ahead. So dig deep suck it up and stay strong.


1.) 06 Jul 2017 15:21:35
I'm sick of hearing excuses. It doesn't matter how early the game came for us, or how it's a new team. The fact is we were soundly beaten by a bunch of part-timers. That is inexcusable! We can't even consider ourselves unlucky because Progess deserved their win.

2.) 06 Jul 2017 15:48:45
The result was bad but what worries me more is the clueless look through the team. I thought we looked the same last year but gave the benefit of the doubt as not his players. While he needs to be given time that won't wash now. At all. He has been backed and nearly all his targets signed. Time to start doing the talking on the pitch. I don't want to hear anymore statements from Pedro and King as all they have done is made us look even stupider. Heads down for the next 4 weeks and hopefully see some huge improvement!



05 Mar 2017 20:24:18
I have to say I still like what Murty has to say and how he says it. I would keep him in charge until the end of the season. There is a chance of a wee run, big challenge I know next week but it could unsettle us again with a new man.

If a new man comes in I hope Murty has a big role to play. I love how he is conscious of getting Gilmour involved also. Thinking about the bigger picture and perhaps keeping the vultures away.

Good honest approach to his business. Not the stale crap that Warburton came out with week on week.




19 Feb 2017 11:51:31
I sincerely hope Murty gets the response he desires. He could be a breath of fresh air for some of the lads.

I like how he talks, he thinks first. I did like how Warburton used to speak way back at the beginning, I quickly started to hate how he spoke later on!

LOL, I hope this lad doesn't go the same way. All the best Murty, have a good game. I fancy us today by a good distance. Just a feeling.


1.) 19 Feb 2017 13:04:26
I also liked Warbs pressers to start with but after hearing the same thing 1000 times I got sick of it! "7-10 days" "above my pay grade" "learn from this" "dominate the ball" "more clinical" I could continue but I think my points be made!

2.) 19 Feb 2017 13:12:09
Trained well.

3.) 19 Feb 2017 13:19:41
I just don't get this enthusiastic response to murty. any interview I've seen are read he comes across as a rabbit in the headlights talking about the fear of going to celtic park then saying he doesn't think he could cope with the pressure of being a 1st team coach! Fair play to him for taking the job on, but this needs to be his last match in charge. Win are lose today we need to get someone in permanent are until end of season.

4.) 19 Feb 2017 13:31:26
'Deliver a good performance'

5.) 19 Feb 2017 17:18:08
Oh well, so much for having a feeling. We are just awful.



17 Feb 2017 21:43:32
I must say now that I've heard Murty, I like how he handles himself. I hope he does well for us all and his own future, seems like a good lad.

Not my choice for full time, but all the best son.


1.) 18 Feb 2017 13:04:30
@gdog10 - unless he plays 433 this weekend and then 75% of this site will slate him!

2.) 18 Feb 2017 19:33:39
As long as he does it his way, which i'm sure he will.



15 Feb 2017 15:16:12
I see WARBS has released a statement, nothing on that statement saying he didn't approach Nottingham. he says he didn't resign, but it would certainly seem he did look for alternative work, otherwise his approach would be a whole lot different to what it is.

Not entirely convinced Murty is the short term answer either, I hope he is.


1.) 15 Feb 2017 15:28:38
Surely he owes the fans some answers before he can demand answers himself!

2.) 15 Feb 2017 16:04:53
Even if he said he spoke with with Forest then that doesn't mean he resigned does it?

3.) 15 Feb 2017 16:08:19
They must be banking on their agent having made the resignation offer verbally, rather than it being written and submitted? Who knows?

The problem here will be how many people witnessed the agents offer and was it via a one to one phone call, or was it in person in front of a group? This hasn't been explained. There isn't this much smoke without fire, and there are too many glaring coincidences in conjunction with the Notts Forest job being available at this time.

The way I see it is, I wouldn't sound out my boss about going for an interview for another job, compromising my present employment, then tell them that I've been unsuccessful…so I'm just going to continue on until something else comes up. Sorry, this isn't about MW, DW and FM's careers, it's about Rangers and getting the best value for their money from employee's of the club. None of us would get away with this behaviour in our employment. They are playing daft, hoping for a payout when they were not 100% committed to the role.

Since MW appeared he has brought in 3rd rate English players all the while downplaying/ down valuing the Scottish Premiership due to us living in the shadow of the EPL. I can't hold it against him for having ambition to manage there one day, but these players were never fit to pull on the light blue jersey. Better value for money would have been found in Europe looking for talent than inflating the already inflated coffers down south.

4.) 15 Feb 2017 16:14:11
We've been looking for answers since King took over. Just a series of Traynor press releases. What chance has MW got in getting getting truth, when supporters are led up the garden path. We've no Manager but we a WOW factor DoF. Come on let's get real.

5.) 15 Feb 2017 16:23:14
I think that in Scotland a verbal contract or offer counts as an agreement. Not sure though, however, if there is proof that there was a verbal agreement then he would still be gone. Regardless, this is going to rumble on. Cannot wait for the day that we make back pages rather than front ones.

6.) 15 Feb 2017 18:50:18
Correct spoc, but it has to be ratified. In a one to one discussion you would require a witness to verify, an acceptance by the other party, a confirmation letter to the other party that is ignored, a taped recording or a minuted transcript.

7.) 15 Feb 2017 19:34:23
Does approaching another club about possible employment without rangers permission amount to breach of contract?
I certainly hope rangers have not cooked this one up. Am I hell renewing my season ticket year on year for directors to make Diddy decisions that we end up having to pay for.
Something stinks about this whole situation and I just hope rangers haven't screwed up.

8.) 16 Feb 2017 10:06:25
Josh windass will be a top player as will some of the others he has signed. It's his system that's failed up here.

Perhaps the manager has not been appointed and the press, as usual, are guessing.

I agree with you if the DoF has been chosen in this manner, anything is possible as far as Rangers are concerned these days. I just hope that whatever happens it's finally the start of us getting ourselves back in shape.

Fod is not better than Gordon. more agile perhaps. McKay would get on the bench. Kiernan would be a starter. OK I took that too far I am clearly joking.

I remember when we were as arrogant as the Celtic fans are now. They have short memories the lot of them. They will never have players like Gascoigne, Laudrup, GvB, Wilkins, Stevens, Butcher, even players like Caniggia. players from the World stage. The list goes on.

Celtic can claim Larsson, that's it! of course I forgot they have Dembele the latest World Class player. LOL!

This is an entirely different type of ban if true. it's pathetic if you ask me. We need to stop this obsession with Celtic, I couldn't give a stuff what they are up to.

Im not sure I believe it to be honest seems petty and pointless. I understand trying to get the team together and educate the new players about our history etc. but green boots is just stupid.

In my opinion we will not even make an offer for Hyndman. Pedro will have his own ideas and players. Yes the lad is decent, I doubt we will even have the funds if we do he would cost our full budget.

McKay has a lot of work to do, he is seriously underachieving considering his ability. Does not show it enough. Hopefully Pedro can get more out of him. I liked Weiss, before coming to us he was awesome, played without fear and care. I don't think we saw the same player and I don't think he is he same player as he was as a kid for Man City. However I wouldn't say no to him coming home.
