They’re printing today’s papers because they have had a tip off. Formal announcement still to come🇬🇧

My mate works for the Dhaily Rhebel and he has just text’d me to tell me that all the English papers (which are printed at Cardinals) are currently coming off the press saying that Gerrard is the new Manager with Gary McAllister as No2. Tom Calshaw as coach.

Possibly announced tomorrow afternoon but if THEY beat us, will be tomorrow evening so the headlines on Monday morning will be
"ALL ABOUT THE RANGERS"👍

Sorry. Cardonald.


2.) 29 Apr 2018 06:34:05
Why would they print Monday's papers in the early hours of a Sunday morning?


3.) 29 Apr 2018 07:07:22
Think he means the club will make the announcement and be in the news sunday night


4.) 29 Apr 2018 07:54:26
Saw on sky sports yesterday when souness was asked about it he obviously was talking the job up for gerrard then shay given steps in (just like everyone related to Celtic) and tries to put a negative spin on things. Then given said, obviously being a Celtic fan next season is massive because they are going for 10 in a row? 🤔Doh! Try 8 shay


5.) 29 Apr 2018 10:02:02
Ci hope he is will give the rest off the spl supporters another laugh


6.) 29 Apr 2018 11:06:26
Not as big a laugh as wee Neil calling us crass, seemingly without a hint of irony!? . he is the personification of the word.


7.) 29 Apr 2018 22:33:43
Riffs he had to use the word crass he couldn't use swear words let's be honest new rangers have no chance of winning spl for at least another 5 seasons and your certainly giving Scotland and Scottish football a laugh at the moment mate

I’ve had a couple of weeks to digest the recent Old Firm match and there has been much said and debated about tactics, substitutions and G Murty’s suitability to be Rangers Manager on a full time basis. however, this post isn't about any of that.

It’s about something that I feel particularly passionate about and I know that fellow bears around me in SJR feel the same. the NEED to reduce Celtic’s ticket allocation for Ibrox.

Put them in the corner the same as other away supporters. They gain an advantage with 7500 of them as a solid bank of fans. Yes they will reduce our allocation, but personally I couldn’t care less.

On too many occasions, we have had to endure then singing their Republican songs and taunting us as we leave the stadium at the end of th. match

I say enough cut their allocation from next season

Greyfriar

1.) 23 Mar 2018 06:34:16
I 100% agree with you here at Ibrox our keepers are subjected to 45 mins of pure abuse and hatred and no one can tell me that this does not distract them, we are not given the same advantage at their midden, this was brought up at the AGM and glossed over but if we keep it at the front perhaps we will be listened to eventually.


2.) 23 Mar 2018 07:00:15
Lads I get where your coming from I would happily reduce the amount of Rangers fans at Celtic Park, however there are a few issues.
1) Following the game where there were no fans an agreement was made on minimum amounts.
2) To police Celtic fans in and out of that corner with Rangers fans above them would be a nightmare for plod and they simply won't allow it
3) we have had the broomloan throughout the 90s and you loved watching it empty quicker than a virgins baws without worrying about it
Just a few points not looking for an argument or anything. Have a Good Friday


3.) 23 Mar 2018 07:33:37
That will never change there was an agreement between the 2 clubs on ticket allocation. Also an agreement with police scotland for fan safety at matches on were to situate fans.


4.) 23 Mar 2018 08:25:36
I hate the way they think they own ibrox nowadays, especially Brown.

It's down to the players to put an end to our endurance by sending them home defeated.


5.) 23 Mar 2018 08:53:15
In all fairness Brown has owned Ibrox when he's been there. Maybe because it was his first love, but not his last;)


6.) 23 Mar 2018 09:03:22
Two issues nakas, one, there would be no Rangers fans above you in the corner and, two, we police aberdeen, hibs fans well enough to the corner so you are no worse, or are you?


7.) 23 Mar 2018 09:38:33
There would be Rangers fans above, and we both know a Glasgow derby is nothing like Hibs or sheep coming to town


8.) 23 Mar 2018 09:47:28
The mhanky mob were requested not to drape banners or flags over the advertising hoardings and I'm sure it came as no great shock to any of us, when the request was totally ignored. I'm equally sure the board fully expected them to ignore the request as well. Now obviously this could affect our advertising revenue, and therefore cannot be allowed to continue.

So, as they will always do this, my question is, after all these years, why ask them to stop now? And could the clammer for them to be stuck in the corner have finally stung the board into finding a legitimate reason to shift them? We can only hope.


9.) 23 Mar 2018 09:48:10
guys get over this. this is what adds to the game. Their dominance won't last forever, I can guarantee that!


10.) 23 Mar 2018 10:19:28
Are any of you seriously saying that the police said that if we reduce the away support from 7500 to 2500 it will be harder to police? All I want is more Gers fans at Ibrox to watch the big games, what's wrong with that?


11.) 23 Mar 2018 11:13:45
Hi Colster. Is that a reference to the insider info you had heard? If so hope this is true


12.) 23 Mar 2018 11:50:57
seeker. Yep. If you pop over to the finance page you will see a name being mentioned. I can categorically say that this is not the guy. 😉


13.) 23 Mar 2018 12:30:37
who cares where they sit, its down to the team on the park we never moaned when we were winning the league and doing the huddle on their home ground. why are some fans so petty?


14.) 23 Mar 2018 12:44:33
Stop being pathetic. It won’t be that when we are winning again and beating Celtic because I never heard these complaints before. And please, forget about Scott Brown because too many rangers fans on this forum can’t help but mention him, it’s almost like an obsession.


15.) 23 Mar 2018 14:26:56
We never had this problem when we were beating them, we just need a good enough team on the park and they will be quiet.

Reduce their allocation and they will reduce ours, what’s the point?


16.) 23 Mar 2018 15:45:08
The issue arose when people were sitting in season ticket seats in the Broomloan watching brechin alloa montrose ect but as soon as they come calling its youll have to move to accommodate them. How can you argue with people wanting more RANGERS fans into a HOME game at Ibrox?


17.) 23 Mar 2018 20:57:18
Colster do u refer to the two names I mentioned, I did not say either would be owners. I reported what is fact and available from companies house.
We can all infer by rumour we know who is coming in, unless u name them in advance it is worthless, as if u claim u were right, no one knows.


18.) 23 Mar 2018 23:20:14
Broon is average and done get a grip


19.) 24 Mar 2018 07:02:11
Keep things the way it is. The day is coming soon when Ibrox will become a fortress again with a strong and skillful team. There is no better sight than watching the celtic fans emptying the Broomloan Stand with 20 mins remaining.


20.) 24 Mar 2018 07:30:04
Thats the point harryboy, our day IS coming and there will only be 42500 Gers fans there to see it, how can any Rangers fan argue with me by willingly limiting the amount of Rangers fans that can get inside Ibrox to witness it?


21.) 24 Mar 2018 08:04:40
Jyf easy to argue with u. Why would u dilute our 9000 at celtic park.
I've followed our great club home and away also Europe and don't agree with u . Why not just ban all away support across Scotland, because that sounds like what u want


22.) 24 Mar 2018 10:46:58
jboy what a childish argument, nowhere have I said ban all away support, or can you show me different? I am advocating treating our friends from the eastend the exact same way we treat every other team in world football when they visit Ibrox and that is to give them the corner. I don't care about parkhead, its a midden and you are treated like dirt by all and sundry when you go there. I too follow Rangers all over the world and doubt there are many (any) stadia where I get to take a home supporters season ticket seat.


23.) 24 Mar 2018 12:46:48
P. S. 9,000?


24.) 24 Mar 2018 21:45:57
Jyf ach well u know best

reportedly looking at Micheal Zyro, 25 year old midfielder currently at Wolves. Former Legia Warsaw player with Europa League and Champions League experience.

Greyfriar

1.) 12 Dec 2017 18:51:18
Who Mark Allen the director of football who tells the manager who he is allowed to buy? Is that who you mean when you say “looking at”?


2.) 12 Dec 2017 19:27:00
He probably does mean the director of football aye. That's the way the board want to run the club it seems.

I can understand the merits of it as long as he works with the new manager when he comes in. If either one of them is a dominant force then it won't work.


3.) 12 Dec 2017 21:19:06
It won’t work and will never work I’m afraid. The dominant force when it comes to signing players is and should be the manager because he is the one who picks the team and tactics and should always have the control in what players get signed to play in the first team. If a director of football is there to help with the financial negotiations with a player which the manager, not the director of football, has identified to strengthen the team then fair enough but that’s where the director of footballs involvement in the dealings with first team players end. Do you think he was picking the players for Pep Guardiola to sign over the last year? No chance! He shouldn’t be interfering with the managers dealings in the first team. Definitely going to affect us getting a new manager in.


4.) 12 Dec 2017 21:57:06
It can work the manager identifies the type of player he needs for example a speedy striker the DOF then identifies candidates they then sit down and agree on who to go for and the DOF gets the player


5.) 12 Dec 2017 22:30:36
Rickwitter do you ever have anything positive to say? Such a negative person. Murty is only saying he is in charge at the moment because we don't have a full time manager


6.) 12 Dec 2017 23:40:20
Personally don't like a dof buying players on his own. The manager should be identifying which areas of the team he wants to strengthen and also key players he wants to get in, the dof should then add those names to a shortlist of players along with other realistic targets which he and the scouting team have identified. All information should then be presented back to the manager - transfer fees, wages etc of all shortlisted players, and he selects which one (s) we sign. After all he is the one that will eventually be sacked if the signings and team doesn't perform, I can't remember many high profile dof being sacked.


7.) 12 Dec 2017 23:52:43
Why would he be be picking the players for Pep last year? He wasn't director of football at City. He was head of youth development.

Scottish football is being left behind. The status quo doesn't work - that's been proven. Why not try something different?

I'm not convinced it'll be great either but it's worth a shot. Guess it's easier to rage against the machine though, right Rick?


8.) 13 Dec 2017 00:26:27
If the status quo doesn't work, and some have rage against the machine, does that put the club in dire straits? Thank you.


9.) 13 Dec 2017 04:40:20
It’s not worth a shot because it won’t work because he is interfering with the team. No credible manager would put up with that and if the board think that’s a healthy way to go forward then I really don’t see things getting any better. It’s a waste of a wage and he’s better going back to work with MTV because it’s going to cost us in the long run.


10.) 13 Dec 2017 08:06:58
The same player that would cost millions to buy? .


11.) 13 Dec 2017 08:17:56
How can rangers be seriously looking at any players How can a new manager come in and say these players don’t fit my system need my own also rangers need to offload players before they can seriously give anew manger wonga to sign new players so Zyro 😀😀😀😀😀


12.) 13 Dec 2017 08:19:13
Just because rick has a different opinion doesn't mean he is negative. I don't like the dof role, I think its a waste of a wage. The manager is the man who builds his team. I think the dof would put a lot of managers off the job. Obviously I hope it works out. Could you imagine someone telling walter or ferguson which players they were getting. Its a nonsense role.


13.) 13 Dec 2017 08:24:00
Director of football will make the signings but I’m sure if and when we get a manager he will take their opinion on board. Would be pointless signing someone if the manager said he won’t play him.


14.) 13 Dec 2017 08:15:49
I love how folks just make their own job spec up for dof.

Mark has stated he is here to assist the manager, whoever it is, and does not interfere. He oversees the whole pull of players, identifying potential academy players next to come through and any skill gaps thereafter.

Murty has also stated they work together to identify specific requirements.

It has been made clear that the manager has the final say.

Imo, it makes sense to have that continuity within the club so that everything doesn't grind to a halt at a time like this, for example.


15.) 13 Dec 2017 08:32:35
We need someone in or we'll miss out in January. Then the new manager will come in (maybe) and will be left with the same crap.


16.) 13 Dec 2017 11:01:15
The first team manager should identify what postion we need strengthing and go to the director of football and ask who do we have on our data base for that postion and have the final say on who he would prefer for that postion and be able to reccomend players to add to the data base.
No director of football should be buying players who he like managet should get final say it seems there are going down this route of director picking and it is so wrong no good manager will want to come under this situion


17.) 13 Dec 2017 14:09:39
The arguments this is causing is why DoF doesn't work.

We've had Allen in since late June and this club has worsened during that time. I'm not blaming him, of course, but it seems to me there are far too many people at our club who think they know how to do things, and they clearly don't.

What the heck gives a youth coach head the CV to become our Director of Football?! For example, if that's all it takes, why didn't we just promote Mulholland?

Nah, DoF for me is just too many cooks spoiling the broth, and there's been no evidence in any sense that we ever needed one.


18.) 13 Dec 2017 20:32:33
Guys it's not hard to figure this one out, Mark Allen will have a database of youth team players and recommendations from the scouting network for a variety of positions, the manager identifies a position that needs strengthened then they sit down and discuss who is on the shortlist or if the manager has a name in mind Allen does his due diligence and if said player is within budget/ ticks the right boxes a move can be made. Allen isn't going to sign a Ronaldo if the manager needs a Ramos.


19.) 14 Dec 2017 07:00:34
DoF has made enquiries to Wolves for Zyro on loan.

He’s not getting 1st team football and needs game time. The want him in a League where it’s physical and draws big crowds

I have this on very good authority, whether we get him or not remains to be seen. 🇬🇧


20.) 14 Dec 2017 08:10:17
Surely a chief scout could have a database, why does it have to be a dof? I just don't see the need for a dof.


21.) 14 Dec 2017 10:52:38
Is the whole point of the DoF not similar to Southampton?

The club have a philosophy on the types of players and style of football they want to play. Anyone brought to the club has to fit in with all of that and that includes the manager. The manager will no doubt identify weak areas to be strengthened and will have his own opinions on who to recruit which is up to the scouting to asses if the player fits the requirement. This should give a continuity to a tram even if the manager is sacked or leaves.

Something that southampton implemented years ago and its been a massive success. From lower leagues to high PL finishes on this method with players being sold for massive profits. Really can't see what peoples issues with this are. All i think is it is a total misunderstanding of what the roles involve


22.) 14 Dec 2017 15:38:55
yet to hear this mark allen speak so no idea what his role is or what his intentions are moving forward, in my opinion the position is not required, a strong manager and good backroom team/ coaches would suffice


23.) 15 Dec 2017 00:09:06
No idea if D. O. F 's work but plenty of clubs have them. Maybe should give the boy a chance?

Not a rumour but a cracking story


I'm currently on holiday in Cyprus and my 10 year old Son lost his Nintendo Switch games console. I had to go to the Central Police Station in Paphos to Report it missing.

The Police Officer taking my details informed me he was a Rangers fan. He was a young officer on duty the night we played Anthorsis Famagusta in a Champions League qualifier in 1995 and as we had a team of greats at the time (Gaza's, Laudrup etc. ) . he fell in love with The Rangers and has been following the worlds most successful club ever since

He knew all about our recent demise, League demotion, financial issues and Stevie G

Even on a little island in the Eastern Mediterranean, it's all about The Rangers

We are the Peopleous🇬🇧🇨🇾🇬🇷🇬🇧🇨🇾🇬🇷.

Greyfriar

1.) 10 Jul 2018 09:07:02
That reminds me of when I was living in Cyprus about 6 years ago, I was living at some upmarket Apartments near Paralimni, there were some guys who used to come to the pool every day at about lunchtime and I found out they were footballers playing for a Cypriot League club, the guys were all Croatian and I got talking to them, one of them had actually played for Hapoel Tel Aviv against Rangers in the champions league and he told me that he knew they were going to lose against us the moment he walked out at Ibrox and the noise of the fans made the hairs on the back of his neck stand up, he also told me that Ibrox was the best aand most historic stadium that he had ever played in, I was so chuffed that he was praising our club so much, and this was before I told him that I was a Rangers fan, he was a really nice guy he knew Jelavic and Modric, he even told me that Jelavics agent was trying to get him a move from Rangers to the EPL, After that every time I spoke to him he would ask me about Rangers,


2.) 10 Jul 2018 09:12:42
brilliant grey friars luv it!


3.) 10 Jul 2018 12:46:46
Yawn!
These Celtic fans and their never ending obsession with all things Rangers.
They go on and on and on and on about us being a new club, yet they are on here reading and posting daily.
Their knowledge of the depths of our club is worrying, to the point where I would even consider it stalker-ish. I really don’t know if we should either request a restraining order or host an intervention and get them the help they need.
Best wishes Magyar John. I hope this finds u well.


4.) 10 Jul 2018 13:01:19
Magyar John, why are you lot so excited about your attempt at 10 in a row then? You really are clowns! Enjoy the season #lets go!

Oh and some smashing deals on Lynx products this summer . just add water 🤡


5.) 10 Jul 2018 13:20:49
No new club was formed John, only a new company called RIFC, you are right about one thing though, it is set out quite clearly - if you do the research without green glasses on

I received an email yesterday about Season Ticket renewals

Now I’m as big a bluenose as anybody else on this site, but unless we show some real ambition and demonstrate a true statement of intent on the Manager front, I’m seriously considering not renewing my season ticket

For me and my Son I’m £735.and it will no doubt increase

I don’t know if I could stomach much more of what we’re being served up at Ibrox

Thoughts please bears.

Greyfriar

1.) 07 Apr 2018 07:58:12
I won't be renewing unless I get to watch ALL home games from my seat.


2.) 07 Apr 2018 08:49:06
Greyfriar, if you don’t want to renew, them don’t. If you do, do. Plenty of folk looking for two seats together. I absolutely get that it’s a huge expense and with a family etc. it’s a massive consideration and commitment. That aside, you also have to take the bad times as well as good times. I started going in the lean pre Souness years with paltry crowds and enjoyed the 9IAR success and Manchester final and Champions League runs. Being a football supporter is about lifelong commitment for me anyway. I hope you keep your tickets. But if you don’t, there will be plenty of folk who will.


3.) 07 Apr 2018 09:38:48
Totally in agreement LifelongGer! I've followed rangers through good times and without doubt, really bad times! I personally could never stop following the club i love! Been shareholder and season ticket holder for 42 years now and the famous glasgow rangers have given me unbeatable joy and terrific celebrations throughout the years! My moto has always been through thick and thin! Its my biggest hobby supporting glasgow rangers, simple as that! I follow this football institution everywhere! Its an individual's choice of course and everyone of us has different methods and circumstances! We have to respect that of course!


4.) 07 Apr 2018 10:11:50
i’ve had my season book and same seat since 89 (my dad wldnt let me go before then said i was too young! )

i’ll be renewing as Rangers are my life, it’s that simple there isn’t an hour goes past i don’t think about results formations, performances, the future, the past .

i totally get how expensive it is and how poor it’s been last few years so everyone is entitled to their opinion and can spend their time and money as they see fit

but i’ll be renewing as i still luv that feeling walking over the footbridge knowing you are going to see goals and a win for my beloved rangers. Ok it doesn't always turn out that way but i’ve had far far more good times than bad so I’ll be there

as the song goes follow follow.


5.) 07 Apr 2018 10:48:19
Well said Coops, Trev7 and Lifelong

As Mr Struth said:

Never fear, inevitably we shall have our years of failure, and when they arrive, we must reveal tolerance and sanity. No matter the days of anxiety that come our way, we shall emerge stronger because of the trials to be overcome.


6.) 07 Apr 2018 12:59:27
I too have had a season ticket pre Souness. Started going to see Rangers in the John Grieg years.

I love Rangers and get butterflies in my stomach every match day like a kid at Christmas. I’m 50 years old and Rangers are a huge part of my life.

I totally respect all the comments people have made and in all honesty will likely renew regardless of who’s in charge,

But we need to make a decision soon regarding the Managers position in order to have a degree of stability and start planning for next season


7.) 07 Apr 2018 13:26:58
If the u20 coach is still going to be calling the shots I won't be there.


 

 

16 Jul 2017 11:34:21
Agree that Fod is at best an average keeper, what about Zander Clark from St Johnstone.

Big lad, commands his area well, decent keeper, some stand out performances last season. particularly against Celtic and Aberdeen and a blue nose to boot

Opinions please bears

Greyfriar

1.) 16 Jul 2017 12:15:54
I'd put my maw in goals before Fodderingham.


 

 

27 Aug 2016 16:11:44
Sorry . sent to early

I'm sure we will get the defence sorted in due course

Yes I'm concerned about going to the Phiggery in 2 weeks, but come on guys show some faith and cut out the negativity

We are by far the most fickle fans in the country

Remember where we were 2 seasons ago. it's a work in progress.

Greyfriar

1.) 27 Aug 2016 16:29:43
agree Greyfriar, let's see how we respond. Lots of reason for concern but agree we should not overreact and remember where we have come from. Hard work needed on the training pitch, suspect some of the new recruits are in state of shock. Now they know what it means to play for Rangers.


2.) 27 Aug 2016 16:58:00
Ano that mob won 4-1 but i seen the 2nd half of it and they wernt up to much to be honest. aberdeen actually slightly better team in 2nd half.


3.) 27 Aug 2016 17:10:52
first half Celtic dominated, Sheepsters lucky to go level, but Celtic always in control.


4.) 27 Aug 2016 17:22:54
Didnt see the 1st half mate but wasnt particulary blown away by what i did see.


5.) 27 Aug 2016 17:43:48
never got out of second gear. TBH The Rangers are going to struggle to finish in the top 3. Dodoo, Rossiter, Tavernier, Waghorn, Forester are decent players some have more potential than others, But

Wallace, Barton, Kranjaer, Wilson, Kiernan, Foderingham, McKay and the rest are all passengers, The Rangers need LEADERS, there is not many in that squad who can read a game either.

a CB with pace, a CB who is a tough tackler and can read a game, an intelligent CM and a striker who has a record of scoring loads. these players can come from the lower leagues or the low ranking european leagues. you don't have to spend a fortune.


 

 

27 Aug 2016 16:08:41
Can't believe some of the stuff I'm reading here.

Get a grip guys.

Yes it's been a disappointing start to the season and there are aspects of our play that are certainly cause for concern

But to read, the seasons over after 4 mat Warburton for the sack,

Greyfriar

1.) 27 Aug 2016 17:39:07
it's embarrassing, turning their back on the manager after a couple of draws. why would anyone want to come to a club like that? imagine if that had happened to Walter Smith would people have wanted him out?


2.) 27 aug 2016 18:01:12

Some of the comments on this are shocking, Get a grip. The players let the club down last night and they know it. No tweets from anyone of them since last night. Back the team get behind them i am sure they make things better in the next coming games.

I’d keep Morelos and partner him with a big Centre forward and if all goes to plan then we’ll make money on him further down the line

People need to remember “El Buffalo” had 2 seasons back to back. That’s why his early form was great. he was fitter and sharper than most.

As the season progressed, everybody else was getting fitter and sharper and he was getting tired

The guy deserves at least this season to see what he’s got to offer

Sorry guys but I’m not buying into this “Murty thrown to the wolves”,

Your all beginning to sound like Brenda Rodgers. Truth is Murty stepped up when asked and up until the recent Old Firm match at Ibrox was turning in decent performances and results, to the point that we actually thought we could challenge for the league

However after that match the wheels have come off the bus, mainly as a result of poor tactics, player selections and formations. which were all his decisions.
The Semi Final briught all the player frustrations to the surface and he’s never recovered from that

His body language on the touch line and the total lack of interaction between, Murty, Nichol and Johannsen has been there for all to see

I’m not buying “it’s the Boards fault”. Graeme Murty wanted the job, he wanted the scrutiny and evaluation of his capabilities in order to secure the job for himself, it hasn’t worked out for one simple reason.,

“He’s not good enough to be Rangers Manager”

I hope he’s OK and trust that taking on the role hasn’t ended his career in the game, but fundamentally he wanted it

He wasn’t undermined by Kings statement or speculation surrounding Stevie G, he always knew it was to the end of the season and before King released the statement and Stevie G was in the frame, the writing was on the wall that he wasn’t good enough to take us forward

He’s a lovely guy, I’ve met him, but nice guys don’t win prizes

Said many times on this page. Zander Clark at St Johnstone is who we should be looking at for our goalkeeper

Giovanni Von Bronkhorst all day long. We should go all out to get him signed up for next season

I fear if we don’t show ambition and intent on the Managerial front, many will not renew their season tickets, which means less money to spend on quality players

Season Ticket renewals will be out in the next 4-6 weeks. We need to show some ambition. I like Murty but he’s not the man to take us to the next level. 🇬🇧

I’m delighted we have cut their allocation.

I posted on here after the 2-3 match at Ibrox and got absolutely slaughtered

Yes, they’ll cut our ticket allocation for the Girodome, but personally I couldn’t care less. I point blank refuse to give them my money

For those too young to remember. it wasn’t so long ago (1980’) that they got tickets for the West Enclosure and the section of the Main Stand above it

Your right Moff81, but Scott Browns Grandfather wasn’t the Celtic Chairman.

There is no way McGinn would ever sign for us. It’s a non story. move on.

The prospect of SG becoming our next Manager is beginning to grow on me.

I can see so many parallels with Graeme Souness career and we all know that turned out

So, yes I can understand many bears concerns about his lack of management experience, his age, but on a positive note, he’s had the pleasure of working with some of the best coaches/ managers in the past 20 years or so.

I’d like to believe that he will have picked up more than a few tips on formations, game management and man management.

I’m old enough to have watched Rangers in the early 80’s pre - Souness and believe me it’s gone full circle.

I draw comparisons to Celtics superiority throughout the Greg/ Wallace years and the Souness Revolution that catapulted us to new heights and 54 titles

So if Stevie G is going to be our new Manager, then he’ll get my support and I hope the fans really do get behind him

It’s coming Bears. embrace it and strap yourselves in as it may be a bumpy ride. 🇬🇧🔴⚪️🔵🇬🇧

Robbie 1969.I posted about Eddie Howe last week and got slaughtered, but I’m with you mate. I think he’s a great young manager and would do a great job at Rangers

He’s continually linked with the Arsenal job once Wenger leaves, but I think that’s got Brenda Rodgers name all over it.

There’s no way the Arsenal board would appoint Eddie Howe after Wenger, they’ll want a manager who has Champions League experience
