I’ve been told by another Professional Footballer that Southampton are about to release Steven Davis from his contract, by mutual agreement.

He is then free to sign for another Club outside of the now closed, Transfer Window.

Not sure how much to read into this but heavy rumours he was in Glasgow last night, so perhaps this is the only path that we could now sign him

Would make sense as he’s a big earner at Southampton but not playing. A sure fire way of getting him off the wage bill

Thoughts bears? 🇬🇧.


1.) 02 Sep 2018 01:10:30
Wouldn’t believe that mate. He was part of the Saints squad today.

2.) 02 Sep 2018 01:10:58
Absolute nonsense. Not playing as been injured still the club captain and was back on the bench today after making his come back mid week.

3.) 02 Sep 2018 03:02:13
I find this hard to believe, your saying Southampton gave up a selling fee for Davis and are now going to release him for free. doesn't make sense.

{Ed001's Note - more to the point, he couldn't sign for you because he would be released after the window shuts.}

4.) 02 Sep 2018 04:48:08
Would that not make him a free agent ed? If so, I believe there would be no restrictions on when you could sign him as it wouldn't be a transfer.

{Ed001's Note - there are restrictions and I have just told you what they are. If he wants to go to China or some other club outside of the UEFA umbrella such as, for instance a non-league side in England ie Salford City to play alongside Adam Rooney, then he can do that. However he can not join any side under the UEFA umbrella until the next transfer window. If he had been freed before the window shuts, he could sign anywhere he wanted in the world. That is why so many, such as Caulker, make sure to end their contracts before it does so.}

5.) 02 Sep 2018 06:44:46
A very detailed and accurate explanation Ed.

{Ed001's Note - thank you. Bit early in the morning for explanations really though, was difficult trying to wake meself up enough to write it in any semblance of proper English!}

6.) 02 Sep 2018 08:32:02
So would say the boy caulker be able to sign because he terminated his contract prior to the window closing? I think he would be a decent back up.

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

7.) 02 Sep 2018 09:40:19
If he is in Glasgow as of last night, it’ll be to go to the old firm game- lots of ex players regularly do it!

8.) 02 Sep 2018 10:44:03
On bench yesterday’notbgetting freed. Just blah. Can’t sign for us.

9.) 02 Sep 2018 11:13:16
Tell him he’s talking rubbish!

10.) 02 Sep 2018 15:11:40
Fair Shout Ed. wasn’t sure of the rules

Perhaps in January 🔴⚪️🔵🇬🇧.



04 May 2018 05:31:02
How ironic that the worlds media will be at Ibrox today to witness the unveiling of Steven Gerard as our new Manager. all accept the BBC, they will be spitting feathers. 🇬🇧





29 Apr 2018 10:56:40
They’re printing today’s papers because they have had a tip off. Formal announcement still to come🇬🇧




29 Apr 2018 01:07:24
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



1.) 29 Apr 2018 04:51:19
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



23 Mar 2018 02:01:12
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


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

I’m so glad that our Board had the vision and foresight to appoint Steven Gerrard as our Manager

Could so easily have gone for “ tried n tested” Managers like Pardew or Warnock, but so glad we didn’t. Those guys have had their day

Time for younger, more dynamic Managers, many of whom have played the game at the highest level.

Can’t get enough of Stevie G. His Pressers and post match interviews are pure gold and he has the Press eating out of his hands

#letsgo. #roadtoBaku. #goingfor55.




24 Aug 2018 01:40:19
Who thought Middleton was superb tonight.

I’d play him against The Mhanky Mob, he’ll terrorise Lustig or Gamboa

What’s your thoughts?

Ps. Best game Ojaria has played in a Rangers jersey.


1.) 24 Aug 2018 06:16:18
Ojaria had his best game for us . Middleton was good but we need to remember he was in against a guy who had been playing for about 80 mins. I'm not sure I'd start Glenn next week but would have no problems with it.

2.) 24 Aug 2018 08:22:48
Ejaria has played better every game he has played. Didn't understand all the grief coming his way. Looks strong, wins tackles, can pass, always wants the ball and tracks runners. Dwells on the ball now and again but it's getting less every game. Looks very coachable.



04 Aug 2018 13:23:27
If Stevie G is looking for a left sided Central Defender, he could do a lot worse than the Osijek Captain.

The guy was immense over both legs against us and was the source of many of their attacks

Croatian football is flying high at the moment but there isn’t a lot of money in their game, so Osijek wouldn’t be too difficult to deal with

Thought Bears. 🔴⚪️🔵🇬🇧.

Any idea what the cost would be. If valuation not crazy then definently.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 14:04:15
He was left back, not a centre back.

3.) 04 Aug 2018 15:07:20
No idea why people are disagreeing with blue89. The boys a left back,

4.) 04 Aug 2018 15:11:22
I believe 1.5-2 million euros has been quoted. If Wallace moves on then it's a possibilty.



10 Jul 2018 07:03:01
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🇬🇧🇨🇾🇬🇷🇬🇧🇨🇾🇬🇷.


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
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



07 Apr 2018 06:59:04
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.


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.

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

I’ve emailed them 3 times regarding my order (£126) and they’ve not had the decency to reply. I’m giving it until next Mon/ Tues then instructing my Credit Card Company to retrieve the money and I’ll go to JD Sports and get it for £5 cheaper

I thought that by buying directly from The Club they are at least getting all the money

Don’t ever want criticise the Club but they’ve handles the whole situation with the strips badly.

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
