Murty to stay on until end of season
1.) 18 Feb 2017 09:22:21
It's all doom and gloom about the Celtic game for obvious reasons but after thinking on it, if we get a wee bit of fresh momentum with Murty we may even grab a point albeit the game is at Porkheid.
2.) 18 Feb 2017 09:35:15
Aye we'll get a point if the game lasts 2mins and even that might be a push
3.) 18 Feb 2017 10:02:19
Sure we lasted longer than that at Ibrox
4.) 18 Feb 2017 10:12:34
We beat an injury ravaged Morton 2-1 (and they missed an open goal, how on earth does that translate into giving Celtic a game? Cone on.
5.) 18 Feb 2017 11:13:51
A wins a win, we ground that win out spoc
And even changed the formation
Have belief, Sellick are beatable
6.) 18 Feb 2017 11:28:54
Agree Shotts, but I obviously feel more confident at Ibrox, it's so difficult to get anything at their place, but I also say it might just be the match wher we take something, that's often how football goes.
7.) 18 Feb 2017 11:29:56
Of course there beatable but we're terrible
8.) 18 Feb 2017 12:39:48
Celtic are beatable but not by you lot.
9.) 18 Feb 2017 14:09:54
Ceptic r beatable and we can do it, if they were that a great team why r they not still in Europe if we play a strong defensive game and hit them on the counter attack we will beat them
10.) 18 Feb 2017 14:11:54
Fear no Foe, you can never predict these games and it's all about who's up for it and events on the field . Don't care what anyone says. can't wait to see how that lot cope when they do get beat . It will happen and I never look at any game we play expecting we'll be beat. Losers mentality!
11.) 18 Feb 2017 15:52:11
Is this the "build yourself up for a mighty fall" starting again. Celtic will beat Rangers at Celtic Park, by a similar if not better score than last time they met there. Wishful thinking if you think otherwise imo.
12.) 18 Feb 2017 16:34:34
It's more than wishful thinking
You have got to b positive, is it wise to think
We r going to lose? Or is it simply not good enough
And hope for the best?
Sellick are beatable, I've said that again
13.) 18 Feb 2017 17:41:41
It maybe isn't wise to think you will lose. But its definitly realistic to think you will lose. that's twice iv said you will lose, make that 3 times.
14.) 18 Feb 2017 17:58:11
It's unrealistic to think that we will lose
And more wise to think of a win
And in most cases I'm pretty sure a draw
Would b took the now . That's optimistic
15.) 18 Feb 2017 19:32:38
Can't see us getting any change off Celtic for the foreseeable future. However, if we are to cause an upset then we need to press them high up the park and not let them waltz up to our 18 yard box like we normally do.
16.) 18 Feb 2017 19:45:46
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!
17.) 18 Feb 2017 20:38:34
Sour grapes gdog but at least we can appreciate good players. I agree the players you mentioned were good players, which I appreciate as a football fan.
18.) 18 Feb 2017 21:45:56
We were never as arrogant as them.
19.) 19 Feb 2017 02:46:49
Personally i would do a walter smith keep the back door shut at all costs vs celtic 5 at the back and end it 0-0 or 1-0 atleast then you have your respect intact
20.) 19 Feb 2017 10:35:17
'They are beatable'
They have dropped 2 points all season, are unbeaten domestically and have a striker worth more than our entire squad. We need to get real, maybe, just maybe, Fods is better than Gordon. After that? Not one of our players would get a start for Celtic.
Major rebuild needed.
21.) 19 Feb 2017 11:47:08
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.
22.) 19 Feb 2017 14:24:50
Gdog do you remember what happened to the old rangers because of the money spent on these players?
23.) 19 Feb 2017 14:27:44
Geddes we have already lost heavily in Europe and we simply bounced back. By the end of CL we were clearly finding our feet. So us coping with defeat isn't the issue. We are well equipped and will improve again in the summer. We might drop points this season, but this will be draws as I can't see us losing in the league.
If we do however lose again imo it won't be by Rangers. The games against you now don't have the same fear or worry. I think Hearts, Aberdeen and Ross County away are harder games than going to Ibrox. Its only the crowd not the players that make a difference, should be the other way around.
24.) 19 Feb 2017 17:58:32
We are kidding ourselves if we reckon this excuse for a football team will finish top three, They are woeful. Today we saw a return to the crap formation, the return of Kiernan who was a waste of space. Hill was destroyed for pace. Our goalkeeper sold two goals. Halliday continues to get a game despite being crap. I could go on but it is pointless. We are seeing the results of King's failure to invest serious money in football players and we are now seeing the clear failure of Warburton and his cronies to acquire even one decent player despite all the bull about how great McParland was. King needs to make a serious statement about his commitment by bringing in a top quality management team and finding a way to bankroll some quality signings. Totally embarrassing. Shades of McCoist's team and shades of everything that has been wrong for the past five seasons. Rant over!
25.) 19 Feb 2017 18:54:29
What gets me is we are losing to less than mediocre teams but they are putting more fight and effort in and that is a large part of the problem.
26.) 19 Feb 2017 18:59:04
Totally agree with TOMUSA. No point in getting another interim manager in because I can't see what anyone else would be able to do with this squad. They're just not good enough.
27.) 19 Feb 2017 18:51:28
Only 7 weeks ago we ran the manky mob close. a miller sitter and a cock up by forrester when 2 on 1. only 10 months ago we beat them deservedly in the cup semi with practically same squad. what went wrong?
28.) 19 Feb 2017 23:48:52
While I agree with most of your points Tom I can't agree the keeper sold both goals. No chance of first second comes through a load of bodies n he has basically no time to react
29.) 20 Feb 2017 00:32:45
Never known so many Rangers fans suck up and shite themselves from selick. Grow a set and get behind our team. Deary me lads.
30.) 19 Feb 2017 00:36:02
God better than Gordon? Jesus have a word with yourself Gordon is pish but Fid is brutal
31.) 19 Feb 2017 23:43:36
Chinabairn you're forgetting they had 2 or 3 really good chances at Ibrox as well.
They are a mile ahead of us wake up pains me to say it.
32.) 20 Feb 2017 07:48:18
I'm sure if he was advised he was staying in charge till the end of the season he'd do a celebratory forward roll, followed by a cartwheel finishing with a handstand.
Hopefully at this point the board realise that he is a nut case and give the job to an experienced manager (even till the end of the season)
33.) 20 Feb 2017 13:19:56
Fabadabadoo: Can't say I remember as there never was an old Rangers.
06 Jan 2017 19:15:00
I've been hearing young Rossiter will not play again this season. Has anyone else heard this? What the hell is wrong with him and why haven't the club announced any injury or medical condition . Why the big secret?
1.) 06 Jan 2017 21:02:14
because this is the latest disaster with this years signings whether its tue o not that's why liverpool let him go as easily but i could have wrong info
2.) 06 Jan 2017 21:02:29
Twitter is wonderful not
3.) 06 Jan 2017 21:45:34
While I wouldn't put too much faith in these rumours and would hope that it is rubbish anyone that knew Rossiter at Liverpool knew that he was a talent but that the lad had injury problems with some Liverpool supporters even suggesting that it was down to training methods!
In any event the signings made as a result of our quality Head of Coaching, McParland have not exactly been mind blowing and while he was finding players that have yet to set the heather alight Celtic went out and signed Dembele for £500k! Perhaps our Board has not set its sights as high as they should have but that is becoming the standard under King!
4.) 06 Jan 2017 22:25:44
Gers are too quiet when it comes to rossiter. he's went from 3 weeks away from a return to 3months out something not right.
5.) 07 Jan 2017 00:55:19
Tbf, tomusa, dembele was never close to being within our current price range. The fee was £500k which we could've afforded easily enough and we could also have agreed to him recieving a a healthy percentage of a future transfer fee as celtic have apparently done but we couldn't have matched his signing on fee (which I'm led to believe was hefty) or his reported £32k per week wages. Just not in our current ball park unfortunately. Celtic will receive a huge fee for him eventually imo but there won't be anywhere near as big a profit in it as we will be led to believe once he gets his cut etc.
6.) 07 Jan 2017 04:02:33
It actually annoying me that people are calling Dembele the 500k player. He was out of contract and signed on a small development fee.
7.) 07 Jan 2017 09:25:54
Spart17, I don't disagree with what you say but we were led to believe that McParland was some form of "sorcerer's apprentice" that would unearth at least one or two quality players. Sadly I am still waiting although, even quality players on Bosmans cost money and if King does not have the ambition to bring in quality that will make a difference and a massive profit for the club then we simply won't acquire their services!
Who knows, perhaps now that he has sold one of his South African Businesses to a US Company we might see some investment!
8.) 07 Jan 2017 09:39:19
But he cost 500k so he's definitely a 500k signing.
9.) 07 Jan 2017 10:53:01
It was a 500k development fee.
29 Jul 2016 12:12:31
Hi all, I personally know Steven Naismith who told me Kyle Lafferty is desperate to sign for Rangers. His agent is pushing for this but apparently Rangers not interested. Personally I wouldn't have him back.
1.) 29 Jul 2016 13:14:48
Not for me time to move on from old players.
2.) 29 Jul 2016 13:18:11
3.) 29 Jul 2016 14:47:57
I also agree tam74.
4.) 29 Jul 2016 16:40:11
If MW, DW and FMcP don't have the nous to dismiss Lafferty out of hand as an option they will go down massively in my estimation. Yes he did have a knack of scoring vital goals now and again but he was often a liability on and off the pitch, totally lacking in loyalty and I see he has now added an FA misconduct charge for illegal betting to his CV! I have to believe that they would never want such an utter chancer in the squad. I know we've got Joey B. so most deserve another chance (if they show they've earned it) but Sir Laffalot-forget it!
5.) 29 Jul 2016 16:58:48
Big Kyle and King would get on well.
6.) 30 Jul 2016 14:41:05
Gor for once we have heard a possitive post in regard lafferty, so well in mate, my thoughts exactly.
7.) 31 Jul 2016 09:27:09
" illegal gambling " I don't think gambling is a crime in this country, or I hope not, as my local would be raided and my daily racing post used as evidence. ! Unbelievable how some people are holier than thou, when it's not them? I was brought up with McDougall, charnley, dinnie, macca, flecky, and a good few others, possil in case your wondering? And played with one or three too, it was a crime if you didn't put a coupon on. , never broke the rules yourself eh?

Message for Spoc, cheers for the support. We obviously have the best interests for Glasgow Rangers, however there are a few who have the blue tinted glasses on. I'm a realist and speak the truth. Unfortunately the truth is Rangers have no money. Warburton may well win his case then, if so he will collect over 2 million. Warburton still hasn't received his half million bonus for getting us promoted last season. We apparently still owe money for Garner plus we need more cash to see out the season. Yes I would love everything to be rosie but unfortunately the truth is as a club/ business we are struggling once again. Thanks again Spoc.
1.) 19 Feb 2017 15:50:44
You're welcome, we need to be very wary of our board even if they are rangers men
17 Feb 2017 16:17:14
Warburton claiming he has King bang to rights. Warburton is perusing King for £2.1 million, which is for loss of earnings and half a million which is still owed to him for getting us promoted last season.
1.) 17 Feb 2017 18:25:35
14 out of the last 19 players signed by Warburton, their agent was Warburton's Daughter. mmm
2.) 17 Feb 2017 20:04:47
Why hasn't King paid him the win bonus for delivering the 1st division title and promotion? Hmm. Why the halogen heaters at the bottom of the marble staircase? Skint
3.) 17 Feb 2017 20:15:41
Smith2d, total nonsense, maybe 4, certainly not 14.
4.) 17 Feb 2017 20:27:49
Garner, Waghorn and Tav are listed as being represented by Key Sports Mngnt. As well as Zelalem. But when you add that to the number of players he's signed because he's worked with them before it really does beg the question as to how much scouting ability and football knowledge the man has.
5.) 17 Feb 2017 20:58:01
Aye Campsie Bhoy because Halogen heaters are the cheapest way to heat a room 😂. Other than burning actual cash I can't think of a dearer way. Numpty.
6.) 17 Feb 2017 21:14:11
TheFuturesBright, just telling what I heard my man, suppose we'll find out soon if it's true. Decent source though!
7.) 17 Feb 2017 21:08:44
this will be settled out of court there is faults on both sides and an agreement will be reached
8.) 17 Feb 2017 21:10:36
Well let's just see if those facts and figures are accurate Gor - I highly doubt it.
So far all we know are 'facts' by way of the statements from the club / D King and Warbs which are contradictory.
I would highly doubt DK would completely fabricate the actions of the agent who allegedly tendered resignation on all 3s behalf
Add this to Warbs alleged attempts to engineer a move to Notts Forrest (neither of which I note he has denied) whilst in gainful employment. I reckon DK will have made sure that's reasonable grounds for accepting the resignations allegedly tendered.
just my opinion but let's wait and see. If either are true I'm behind the board 100%
9.) 17 Feb 2017 21:40:07
I think this only highlights what a poor inferstructure we have, he utalised what he could to get players in. I don't think this is anything underhand as it seems to be out in the open however who knows.
10.) 17 Feb 2017 22:03:51
Heard lawyer tonight say that as MW has under 2 years continuous employment there is not a thing he can do about this. I also own a company and am aware of this. Does not matter if it's somebody in a low paid job or the manager of the world's most successful club, the rules are the same. Don't shoot the messenger guys
11.) 18 Feb 2017 09:52:10
I'm sure what you are referring to is that he was still technically in his probationary period so the club could terminate his contract at any point they wished with only a notice period having need to be paid.
12.) 18 Feb 2017 14:04:17
Campsie Bhoy, realise you lot know a lot about fires but your tripping mate. Just worry about keeping Brenda. we will be back where we belong . It's not an if, it's a when!
13.) 18 Feb 2017 14:15:13
Correct. Rules are the same for everybody
14.) 18 Feb 2017 15:45:06
Will a lot not depend on what is in his contract? I say this because I am assuming that at that level the two year rule would be overruled by the t's and c's in the Employment Contract.
I guess it also depends on what level of authority the Agent has since if this includes the authority to act on behalf of the Client, then he would have had the right to tender their resignations. Problem is that it was perhaps inferred rather than expressed, so the burden of proof would fall on Rangers.
It's all a bit murky but it sounds to me as though Rangers took their time to make a decision which hopefully means that they took legal opinion.
Personally I still believe that it will be settled out of court. No Employer wants to employ someone that makes a point of going to an Industrial Tribunal. They are just trouble!
15.) 18 Feb 2017 16:41:15
Geddes I'm 30 will it be in my lifetime? More chance of being another new club than challenging us mate
16.) 18 Feb 2017 19:21:50
It's a 2 year probationary period Tomusa, no matter who you are or what job it is. Or so I've been told.
Campsie Bhoy - it's a gey big wheel that doesn't come back round. Desmond is not getting any younger and I hear his family all support a certain English club. They couldn't care less about Celtic. When Dermot shuffles off the mortal coil, what will happen then In any case investment is coming very soon. Things can change very quickly and when you are the world's most successful club investment is certainly a realistic possibility. We will be back in our rightful place soon enough
11 Feb 2017 21:14:33
I have been a season ticket holders for 34 years. I cannot understand why individuals would want Barry Ferguson anywhere near Rangers again. He was a decent player at most who took a lot of money from Rangers. He does not merit being near Rangers again. I can only imagine the younger supporters support him. Think outside the box. Past players do not equal management.
1.) 11 Feb 2017 21:38:21
To be fair as a player Barry was a lot better than decent and a million miles better than any player we currently have! he wasn't a bad captain either in my opinion.
I'm not saying he should be our next manager but he definitely deserves more respect than that mate
2.) 11 Feb 2017 21:59:34
Barry Ferguson has no high level managerial experience. Why do so many bears call for ex players when we need a new manager. It doesn't work. Remember John Greig, Ally? . Ex players telling the current squad players what it is all about playing for us doesn't make them better players.
We need someone with no Rangers links who has been successful at a good level in England. Look at what o'neill Strahan (at first) and now Rogers did. Came up with premiership experience, spotted the weaknesses straight away brought up some decent players from England and won league easily in first season.
3.) 11 Feb 2017 23:36:49
Gor I've been a season ticket holder for 37 years and I know Barry Ferguson divides opinion but u must have missed the two seasons when he carried an average Rangers team. At that time I honestly believe he was only behind Gerrard in his position.
Any way That doesn't really matter because there are a large percentage of Rangers fans who don't appreciate his contribution and sadly never will.
The thing is I think it would be a bold and ultimately a productive move to give him a chance as a manager at the team he loves. Maybe a one year rolling contract and if it doesn't work move on. In any case I would rather a died in the wool bluenose to DeBoer, Laudrup or another twat from England.
4.) 11 Feb 2017 23:43:30
Got to agree Peter Huistra, can't believe how anyone can say Fergie was "decent at best". if we had anyone with half his desire and ability in our team i'd be happy
5.) 12 Feb 2017 23:57:35
Ferguson was a fantastic player for Rangers and should always be remembered as such. However he isn't ready to manage us just now but would possibly make a good assistant manager
10 Feb 2017 20:05:14
Warburton stating on stv that McParland is the best in this business, it's a pity he didn't do the business at Rangers.
1.) 10 Feb 2017 21:13:03

Warburton has resigned
3.) 10 Feb 2017 21:20:56
Warburton just quit 😃
4.) 10 Feb 2017 21:21:21
Mark Warburton quits as rangers manager along with david weir and frank mcparland this is very bad timing ahead of such a crucial game against morton. all eyes on who we bring in now please not billy davies or anyone from the past let it be someone new with different ideas and better contacts in the game and heres hoping he gets the backing financially.

Crucial game against morton lol, am buckled lol
05 Feb 2017 08:29:43
I've been a season ticket holders for 32 years. As many other fans I look forward to going to ibrox but to often leave disappointed. I really miss watching a good game. Warburton said " send the fans home happy ". How many of us are happy? His signings are either injured, out on loan, doesn't even play them or simply aren't good enough to play for Rangers. I hear fans singing about Garner, why? I really don't understand why. Yes he tries but a strikers priority is to score goals. For me £1.8million could have been better spent. Quite simply it's not working for Warburton and co.
1.) 05 Feb 2017 10:38:22
Strikers are only as good as the service they receive. If you were at the game yesterday then can you tell me how many times you seen miller or mackay coming back deep into our own half to get the ball? How can you supply a striker from there? Also all the dead ball/ set piece deliveries were appalling. At least Joe garner puts himself about.
2.) 05 Feb 2017 12:01:21
Nah Yogi, the guy just doesn't do it for me. I hear what you're saying about the service, or lack of it, but he did get at least 3 excellent chances yesterday and squandered all 3.
Good strikers will shoot when they get the chance, even on their weakest side. Too often he, and Waggy as well tbf, will try and move the ball on to their best side before shooting. The defenders know this as well and will expect it. Why not have a swing at it when you get the chance?
Surely a professional footballer should be good enough to hit the ball well on either side. I remember McCoist shooting with either foot and he didn't do too badly. Even Boyd would swing on either side.
Shearer would also take the ball early before the goalie has time to set himself. Strikers should spend most of their time on the training field practising shooting from all angles and with both feet. Rant over!
3.) 05 Feb 2017 15:10:11
Garner puts himself about but goals win games.
1.8 million could have been better spent by Warburton
4.) 05 Feb 2017 15:13:13
Firat thing a striker is coached to do is take the shot as early as possible top top forwards don't take any more than one touch and bang
5.) 05 Feb 2017 18:52:27
Garner is just like sebo, loved for trying hard but that should be the least expected in a rangers shirt! Not worth a fraction of that transfer fee whole summer budget wasted on a dud striker
6.) 05 Feb 2017 18:13:33
When coaching youngsters we always said if the ball falls to your weak side, swing a leg at it anyway, don't footer around and lose the chance. Our strikers footer around.

It doesn't matter who the next manager is, we have Warburtons numpties. Those guys will not improve, yes I believe they are trying their best which is obviously not Rangers class. A total clear out is needed but without investment we are stuck with them. Oh how I would love to see a good Rangers team/ performance.

Aarono 76. You said if King doesn't want to invest, in reality he can't invest as he is skint. As for selling up as you put it, he has been trying to do that for a while now. King has to find money to keep our club afloat until the end of the season which is no easy task as who in their right mind would invest in Rangers when we do not even have a Monad. We also don't have a credit line to the bank. My worry is we could go into administration again.

Reading the above post about McKay s valuation. On the rumour page it's said he's valued at 8 million. There is no doubt the lad is a descent player, so if anyone wants to offer that amount then yes please take it. However If we do indeed get anywhere that amount then do you think Warburton would get that to invest in the team? I think not, my opinion would be the cash would be massively needed to pay the bills, wages, debt, for the rest of the season.
