Lescott to be signed with the intention of competing directly with Griffiths for the worst barnet in Scotland. Seriously though he would add a lot to out defence in terms of attacking the ball in the air, however his attitude at Villa was nothing short of disgusting.

Is the game on TV tonight?

No mate, £15 a ticket but if you can go.

The commentary on rtv is ridiculous it's so bad surely the next signing has to be a commentator the guy tries but dear oh dear it's god awful.

I was thinking the same bud. Don't get off work till 7:30 so hopping to catch a bit of it.

Just a thought regarding the kit situation. Surely Puma would be more than happy to renegotiate a deal with Rangers directly, they can't be happy that they have paid money to sponsor a team, only for the kits not to be sold. I get that it's not that simple with Mike Ashley involved but maybe there is an incentive for them to help Rangers in this battle?

The fat man is under a lot of pressure and I think he'll renegotiate eventually. He may be the hamburgler in a suit but he is also a successful businessman and the current situation doesn't help him much either!

As things stand Ashley's deal with Rangers is as follows:
Duration: 7 year rolling contract. We handed in notice to terminate this contract in February 2016, so the contract still has 6.5 years to run.
Terms of Contract: Sports Direct given sole rights to sell Rangers merchandise, which means no one else can sell it unless Sports Direct allow it. On top of that, Sports Direct are guaranteed 4 million a year from the deal. Therefore, if less than 4 million worth of merchandise is sold, we need to make up the shortfall. By not playing ball with Ashley we are actually hurting ourselves as we are going to have an unnecessary bill for 4 million and that is not even factoring in the lawyers fees, which will also be significant.
Obviously the deal is bollocks for Rangers and mainly benefits Ashely. However, unless we win a court battle to have the contract ripped up we have two options:
1. Prevent Sports Direct from selling any of our merchandise and in doing so cost ourselves 4M each year, not to mention the fact that we are probably violating the terms with Puma and Red 32.
2. Allow Sports Direct to sell the merchandise for the next 6.5 seasons.

Put RRL into liquidation as it has no products to sell, I think this is the line we will go down. Not sure how this will happen and the implications but surely it must now be a loss making company with no hope of making a profit so the directors are duty bound to do what's in the best interests of creditors and that would be liquidation. Not sure what happens then but just my thoughts.

Disagree if you want but these are the facts of the deal. The crap we see in the Daily Record is just spin, no doubt placed there by James Traynor's PR company at our behest.

Gaxliverpool the only incetive puma will have is to sell jerseys for money, at the moment they are selling none of our shirts, but i don't think mr king would be happy torenegotiat the deal now, he will only do so as a last option, imo. due to mr. ashley being so greedy.
6.) 25 Jul 2016 12:11:45
Think he may well have a personality problem, I believe he hates Rangers now because Dave King has done him up like a loch fyne kipper! Dave has fought long and hard to get our club back from the thieves who tried to end us and Imo there is no doubt that was their ultimate aim.
I believe that to be the case, the problem now may be fatty's hatred of King 👑 and his greedy, grasping personality, he could hang on for some time, causing Rangers real financial difficulties in the coming years, hopefully Dave and the board have plans to take him out of the equation.
whatever happens, Dave King should go down in history as a far bigger hero than David Murray, whose silence is deafening?

I think Ashley has shares in Puma. Been
Reading up on him, he has been fighting
With Adidas about kit contracts since 2007.
makes interesting reading about the way he
operates manipulating the system.
Also read that West Brom and Sunderland
produced their own shirts to sell to fans.
Ashley is devious as they come so unless
DK's lawyers can find a loophole and going to
court where the judge sides with Rangers
we're stuck with Ashley for a long time.

The problem is is that it is only a minority that are refusing to buy any goods, there are plenty of people wearing last seasons tops and people who bought merchandise from the megastore in match days.
21 May 2016 10:50:43
My bet today will be, Cummings to score anytime and rangers to win.
19 Apr 2016 23:02:48
Not a rumour, but I seen that Sunderland are not offering Mikeal Mandron a new contract. He's a 6'3 foward who is still mobile only 21 and was tipped for a bright future a couple of years ago. Might be a different option going foward.
28 Jul 2016 14:12:28
Bluenose33, Rangers had agreed terms with RVP in 2002. The problem was the deal could only go thru unlesd we sold a couple of players which didn't happen and Arsenal jumped in.
10 Jul 2016 11:05:56
I'm not saying for a second that he would sign. Although he did almost sign for rangers until arsenal hijacked the deal. Maybe there's some unfinished business for him.
10 Jul 2016 11:04:29
I lived in Crewe a few years ago, so have seen a lot of him over the years. He is very talented, however there was a lot of talk that he had fallen out of love with the game during his spell with man u. If Warburton can work his magic with him then we might have a superstar.
19 May 2016 17:09:35
I'm not saying we should sign him, but if memory serves Hutton turned down 2 contracts from spurs at rediculas wages. He wanted to stay but was asked to leave for financial reasons.
10 May 2016 00:50:04
Johan, his contact will expire at the end of the season, he can sign a pre contract now.
21 Jul 2016 22:34:42
Dunno who will be our starting cb's. Tho I did notice when Barton came on the other days he actually sat back to make a back 3 when attacking.
13 Jul 2016 10:31:31
I don't think Barton will be best the best midfielder in Scotland, that will be kranjcar. Hehe.
19 May 2016 17:39:00
I think Brenda is a more than decent manager, but the preS's in Glasgow would tear him apart.
09 May 2016 11:28:53
Not seen him myself, but spoke to a few Liverpool fans who have. They are gutted he's leaving because he's a local talent. Apparently he's the kind of player who can control a game, loves a tackle and has a good range of passing.
21 Dec 2015 17:24:52
Completely agree. He came in with the intention of playing tippy tappy football, but hopfully has now realised we need some power aswell as skill in Scotland.
