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.

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
Agreed.


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?

Questions about the 2 young lads on loan for six months. Will they adapt to Scottish football? Will they get injured as that seems to be the norm, wether it's playing or at training? Will they indeed get a game? 6 months loan deals, is that what Rangers are reduced to?


1.) 13 Jan 2017 18:27:22
Well it's the easiest thing they can access right now, so if it works for this season and helps us in midfield and to get 2nd, fair enough.


2.) 13 Jan 2017 18:34:32
Gor, to your final question, the answer is undoubtedly, YES we are. Sad but true, we are a total joke.


3.) 13 Jan 2017 20:00:18
When we should be building for the future were reduced to short term fixes. These players who are on loan will need replaced next season and we need to start all over again. not good


4.) 13 Jan 2017 23:08:35
More people would be laughing if we were pissing money that we don't have up the wall.

I definitely disagree that we are a joke. We are second in our first season back and we are halfway through the season.

This ridiculous arrogance is what nearly cost us our club in the first place.

If there is money to spend on players, it will be. Hopefully King prioritises paying wages, bills and running the club on and off the pitch before buying players we shouldn't.


5.) 14 Jan 2017 00:07:51
I totally agree with the short term loans at the moment hopefully be enough to secure us the second spot. Then next season when we hopefully progress to group stages in Europe we can start to build a better squad and add some quality. Having the Europe carrot will help bring in a better standard of player. As for king and Co all the fans that keep getting on his case I really don't understand. How many players have been signed since he took control no other club in scotland have matched us with signing and all of this has been done with no European money or merchandise money. I think these fans want him to pump 20 to 30 million instantly and what if that doesn't work out as money doesn't always get u success. There isn't a line of investors out there ready to pump money into the club. All I can say is well done to the board keep up the great work and keep improving our team


6.) 14 Jan 2017 01:33:07
Hang on Arafat bob your comparing apples with oranges. because some folk want a bit of investment doesn't mean they are advocating the nonsense fees of the past. Calm yourself down your always ranting like this, we only want a bit of investment in our beloved team is that so wrong?


7.) 14 Jan 2017 03:43:23
Some fans here are agreeing these short term loans are ok. I have to disagree for a few reasons. Hopefully we will finish 2nd and have european football. Those rounds are going to start sometime in June so we are going to have new experienced players in place, not more any kind of loans.

We need players of quality if we want to progress in europe. There are 4 qualifying rounds to get through then you start making money. In my opinion we will be back to the same position as we were in the summer try to get new players and for the team to gel before the qualifiers begin.


8.) 14 Jan 2017 08:28:04
Stewartyblue

Your in fantasy land if you think qualifying for the preliminary rounds will get a better type of player in. The qualifying rounds. The current squad is no better than the Aberdeen or Hearts teams and neither of them got anywhere near the group stages. Unless we actually qualify for the group stages there is no money to be made in the europa league so don't bank on that for money or players.


9.) 14 Jan 2017 08:33:26
Spencer65,

I have to ignore what you are saying because you clearly haven't read any of my other posts.

Everyone wants investment, in my original post I am talking about investment (wages and bills are investing in people and infrastructure)

I can't say I have ever read anything from yourself, you seem well informed though and I look forward to seeing your opinion on other posts.


10.) 14 Jan 2017 08:58:56
Some money has to be made available for players either in the summer, or preferably in the run up to the end of season and we need to be bringing in players on pre-contracts that will serve us well for maybe a season that can then be sold on at a substantial profit.

That money can then be reinvested in better players and so on.

As I understand it, McParland was brought in because of his ability to find quality young players, well it is about time we saw this in reality!

If we are to challenge Celtic next season and put some distance between us and the rest of their challengers and if we are to do anything in Europe then we will need at least four quality players for next season including a centre back, a Holding Midfield player, a central midfield played and a striker and that presupposes that guys like Rossiter will be fit, that Crooks will come back and that Krancjar returns fully match fit.

We need to replace Miller with a quality striker, we can't expect him to be our best attacker every season!, if we don't keep the two lads that are on loan then we need to replace them with the same or a better standard. We need to replace Hill and they need to be a first team starter and we must replace Halliday.


11.) 14 Jan 2017 09:04:47
Stewie25, we have got a better squad than both aberdeen and hearts and have no doubt they'll go on to prove it, by finishing 2nd in the league! A wee trip to specsavers wouldn't go amiss for your good self mate!


12.) 14 Jan 2017 14:42:49
@ Tomusa.

I don't think McParland is quite what people suggest he is either. However I do think we lack a scouting system to support him fully. Which is a disgrace really. The money that went out to Barton could have helped go towards a proper scouting network!

Message for Ed. First of all health and happiness to you mate. You have an agree or disagree option. My suggestion would be that people would give a reason for selecting their option, give a chance to explain themselves. It may be that there are quite a few Celtic supporters on here selection an option to cause an upset. I realise it's banter but when Rangers guys ask a serious question then we deserve an honest reply, cheers Ed.

{Ed001's Note - why? People have a right to register an agree or disagree without having to type a reply if they don't want to.}


1.) 02 Jan 2017 18:34:10
Sorry Gor - I'm with the Ed on this one. Too many people get a wee bit precious with the agree / disagree tabs.
Some people might not have the confidence to type a reply - I know it took me a couple of months of visiting the sites before posting.

{Ed001's Note - they will be changed over to a thumbs up/thumbs down in time, just because that way no one can be an arse with RIP posts. Some of the sites have them already. Other than that, I fail to see that it matters whether people click them or not, I never even look at them personally.}


2.) 02 Jan 2017 18:41:38
Yeh maybe Ed, but it would be nice to read why they have chosen their option. We are all different and it wouldn't do if we were all the same but I would like to read their explanation as to why we agree or disagree. Like I say, just a suggestion mate.

{Ed001's Note - people have suggested it hundreds of times, but the only thing that tends to happen is people say 'I agree' or 'I disagree' or similar without the buttons. Then the page just gets clogged up with those kind of posts that add nothing to the convo and tend to get in the way.}


3.) 02 Jan 2017 18:51:30
Ok, fair enough Ed, no worries.

{Ed001's Note - I do appreciate the suggestion though mate, don't mean to sound like I am having a go at you or anything. We are always looking for ways to make the sites better. Though it usually takes Ed033 a good few months before he gets round to actually putting things into practice!}


 

 

02 Jan 2017 12:36:44
Laverty and Naishame can't get a game for Norwich and low and behold they want to come back to Rangers. The audacity of them both! I do believe Wier would not welcome the idea.


1.) 02 Jan 2017 12:54:07
Both would walk into our team.


2.) 02 Jan 2017 13:06:08
You can say that again cee. As for weir he should concentrate on learning the players how to defend corners.


3.) 02 Jan 2017 13:19:57
Simply can't believe some supporters agreeing to have lafferty and Naismith back. While I agree they have to financially look after themselves and their families, it's was the timing of their departure. I believe they could have stayed a little longer to command a transfer fee (how little or large) for our club and indeed would still get their move down south. So for me I'm not sure if I believe this rumour but if there is any truth in this I would welcome either player.


4.) 02 Jan 2017 13:30:54
Yeah gor they could have stayed and snapped a leg in division 3 career over! Family out on their arse! The fact is they didn't stick around and neither would you if your company went to shit.


5.) 02 Jan 2017 13:39:17
Sorry my last sentence should have read I would NOT welcome either player.


6.) 02 Jan 2017 14:00:53
Gorgeous, say they stay and commanded a fee, how much of that would the club have saw? Zero. It would all have went to green white ashley etc so what does it matter.


7.) 02 Jan 2017 14:34:45
Naismith was -laying well and was a bad loss. At the time a lot of us were glad to see the back of Lafferty and I am struggling to see why we would want him back. There must be better younger players that we could sign!

We also need a quality midfield player to replace Halliday and that should be our number one priority!


8.) 02 Jan 2017 16:47:31
Nic861

No Rangers player that played in the lower divisions got his leg snapped so stop making stupid posts like that.


9.) 03 Jan 2017 14:21:28
It was down to Davie Weir that Naismith left when he did.

Was Halliday wearing green and white boots with black today? serious question guys.


1.) 31 Dec 2016 15:38:34
didnt know he was playing till the second half, hardly got stuck in.


2.) 31 Dec 2016 15:52:16
Dear oh dear oh dear! Is that a serious post? . If so, please just leave the drink alone tonight, you sir, are all that's bad about your club. Its nearly 2017 not 1720. Decent Rangers fans should hound you for that. Back in yer Cave.


3.) 31 Dec 2016 16:31:34
He was our best player by a mile and your rattling on abt the colour of his boots.


4.) 31 Dec 2016 17:07:47
think he was wearing rigger boots.


5.) 31 Dec 2016 17:52:29
Sorry mate i thot u meant Mckay when u wer refering to the boots but does it really matter what colour of boots he was wearing.


6.) 31 Dec 2016 21:09:02
The way that Halliday performed today it looked as though he was wearing hobnail boots. Hopefully when we return late January we will have acquired a new midfield player and he can stay at home and wear his slippers. Totally out of his depth in the Premier.


 

 

31 Dec 2016 13:14:58
Unbelievable amount ot time and space for Dembele to bring ball down and score. Kiernan and Wilson are a worry for me.


1.) 31 Dec 2016 13:21:39
Every game Hallyday gives 1 or 2 dangerous passes which puts other team through.


2.) 31 Dec 2016 13:22:48
Wilson left his man dembelle to win a ball two others were attacking.

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.

Agree with youPieandbovril. Holt and Halliday were good players last season as were certain others. My opinion is they are championship players at best. Unfortunately we are in a position where we cannot afford Premiership type players. I'd also like to ask opinion on Warburtons signing. How many players that he has signed has made the grade? Why, if true are some of his signings going on loan? How many have injuries?

Dave King is skint and apparently the board members are not keen to give any more soft loans as they cannot be transferred into shares. King is getting desperate and apparently approached Brian Kennedy for investment which he turned down. Not sure where the money is going to come from to see out the season.
