Read about Defoe advertising for a PA starting at £60k a year plus benefits, now let's think about this. We were haggling over a few grand for David Bates (for me A good young centre half and Scottish) he wanted £7k a week we offered £2.5k. So we offered less than half Defoe will pay his PA.

Defoe on £100k a week which we will need to pay part of if we want to sign him on loan. Hope people on here can see the different financial worlds we are from with this example. Three or four of the players mentioned combined wage would be £10m a year, at This time we are a £30m a year club. I'm not be negative but please lads don't get carried away.

Isle. Bates is getting about 10k a week at Hamburg. Do you think he was worth that for us? I don't believe he was worth that or 7k. The wages saved willbe better spent elswhere. Good luck to him tho.


2.) 21 May 2018 02:30:19
You still talking about this David Bates 7k a week?

It’s pretty simple, Rangers offered the player what we thought he was worth. He did not accept as Hamburg will pay him more than what we feel he is worth. The end.

We are paying some players a pretty obscene wage for what they have contributed, ie Pena, Alves, Dorrans.

You’re talking about Bates and 7k as if we could not afford to pay it. We can pay it, but we chose not to.

With regards Defoe, I’ll just wait and see who we have by the end of the window.


3.) 21 May 2018 05:23:13
Why can't the rest of us fellow bears not see the big name players being mentioned will not be anywhere near Scotland let alone Ibrox unless its loans the names are only getting throwed about to pull the wool over our eyes so We go hurry and buy are season tickets, we don't have hardly any money and we've known this for a while so Where is this money coming from to buy, them and then pay there wages? its not going to happen i'm affraid, that days are long gone sadly.


4.) 21 May 2018 05:58:57
How do you think ww offered bates half defoes PA? 2.5k per week is 130k a year. Good maths mate


5.) 21 May 2018 06:46:18
I watched Alves against Aberdeen at Ibrox 3 0 game, live away now but to me looked like the only string centre half / leader we had on the pitch.
Maybe we should keep him and get rid of the push beside him. Don’t become a bad player over night


6.) 21 May 2018 07:22:27
Isle of Mull with his doom and gloom again. He thinks he’s some sort of financial expert not really are you if the PA is on £60k a year I don’t think that works out to be more or even less that what Bates was offered


7.) 21 May 2018 07:23:07
Isle of Mull 2500 x 52 ain't half of the wages offered for a PA 60,000 but its been a long time since i was at school, perhaps arithmetic is different nowdays


8.) 21 May 2018 08:32:04
Isle of Mull, you need to resit your maths exam, or maybe you were getting confused with Dembele dollars. hahaha


9.) 21 May 2018 09:17:32
30M a year club? Utter rubbish. We get a lot more on season tickets plus huge merchandising. We probably make more than 30M on SG photo in gers top.


10.) 21 May 2018 09:43:17
Really hope board won't over stretch and keep to what we can afford. I for one am very worried promises have been made that we can't keep to SG. Hopefully I'm wrong. Surely we have a structure for wages that we won't go over.


11.) 21 May 2018 10:25:02
Appalling that we let the boy Bates go because we would not pay him £7k a week. He was the best Centre back at the club and was on the lowest wages. Was also the type of young no nonsense defender with physicality we are crying out for.


12.) 21 May 2018 10:29:37
Sorry lads for my mistake was just trying to highlight the financial gap between Scotland and the EPL. We are a£30m club that is not a mistake check our accounts. MBW so we are going to double our income just with SG shirts / pics please out your eyes. We all hope SG is a hugh success as a manager first then we can look to his financial benefits to the club. Think CG has to have a word with MBW about exaggerating


13.) 21 May 2018 10:45:32
Isle of Mull your having an absolute stinker the day


14.) 21 May 2018 10:48:31
Isle of Mull all of Rangers assets, players, stadium, auchenhowie, Albion Car Park etc are worth more than 30 Million. Have you been on the Davie Weir all night 👃🏽


15.) 21 May 2018 12:45:35
LDM😂😂😂😂


16.) 21 May 2018 14:59:53
Bates worth 7k? No way worst user of a ball out of defence I've seen good luck to the boy but not for us at 7k


17.) 21 May 2018 15:42:48
I think what he means is we have an annual turnover of around £30m. (Think it’s slighly higher) With a wage bill of £18m. The Tramps had turnover of around £60m with Champions league etc and their playing budget is £54m.
Totally agree that we could easily afford £7k a week, I know Maths is not your strong point so to simplify it for you, a basic £20k weekly wage is £1m per year we have been paying £18m so we can afford a full 18 man squad on £20k per year if we wanted. Obviously there’s other wages needing paid and we will have numerous players on less than £10k and others like Arfield, Alves and Pena on £25k.
Your point with Defoe, if it’s to do with wages we can't afford him. If he wants to come here and is on £80k he would have to accept less than half if he wants to make the move, he’s made his dough and he hasn’t won a medal and would probably jump at the chance to compete at top end of table and play for a big club again, unlikely signing but not impossible.


18.) 21 May 2018 16:15:22
Think isle of mull is on about turnover (£30m) the last couple of seasons. Our turnover should be much better this coming season. Iam delighted with Stevie Gerrard as our manager. Not convinced we're going to sign 7-8+ players this summer. Quality of quantity for me.


19.) 21 May 2018 21:39:57
Think it was your esteemed chairman, Robinson, or whoever, him of the the "overdraft facility", that said you were a £30 million club, think he was talking about your turnover, not your overdraft facility.


20.) 22 May 2018 13:17:35
Don't think Bates removal had anything to do with more money but rather strategic decision knowing changes SG would want to make. Skrtel or Bates no brainer plus one class other CB would push Bates into training ground fodder.

Was listening to clyde big DJ saying it doesn't matter that we have no money because money will be found. Maybe in by gone years Derek but we have to live in the real world. In the accounts its says we need over £7m to get us over the next 18 months, that was without pedro and his gang pay off. Our finances have been blown out of the water again.

Isle of mull

1.) 08 Dec 2017 12:44:59
TBF Isle of mull, that's a fair point but let's not get carried away with the doomed finances. DK and his band of merry men took a gamble with Pedro that backfired, if they realise their error they'll put their hands in their pockets and get the finances stabilised for the remainder of the season and onward.

We're all aware that the RANGERS BRAND is one of the biggest in football and with that there's interest from businessmen everywhere but until we have a team capable of entertaining and competing we won't get the external financial investment we need to help us get back to were we belong.

IMO, although i could stab myself in the face for saying this, phatboy Ashley seems to be lurking in the shadows with a potential pot of cash to invest in a business that will bring him better options than NUFC ever did for minimal outlay. As much of a see you next thursday he was to us, he could still make things right given the chance.


2.) 08 Dec 2017 12:44:58
Big dj doesn’t have a clue what’s happening inside ibrox


3.) 08 Dec 2017 13:09:02
The director of football is the big problem for any new managers coming in.


4.) 08 Dec 2017 13:30:47
Big DJ hasn't a clue period. What i can't get my head round is why was McInnes not quietly sounded out for the position before it got into the media and did we actually speak to him. Blaming the board without the facts is just belching out loud.


5.) 08 Dec 2017 19:11:57
just no. don't want ashley or his money


6.) 08 Dec 2017 19:23:18
Your completely forgetting that most likely in March there will be a share issue from shares that will be converted from the interest free loans that Park, Letham and Taylor have put into the club.

That means the loans they are owed convert into shares so no debt to them, Then they sell the shares to someone else possibly bringing in more money and at the very least wiping out £16 million of personal debt to those 3.


7.) 08 Dec 2017 19:53:10
In the eighties rangers were jobbie and in came sir david murray, I think business men would rather come in when the team is doing bad and the shares are low then invest and make the team better, makes sense. Murray was a game changer, its just a shame he never got the champions league he wanted us to get, it cost us everything trying to be the best team in the world but I wouldn't change it for the world, best times of my life.

Ibrox bouncing every match amazing players amazing atmosphere, beating the dhims winning trebles. Hatley, butcher, mccoist, gazza, laudrup, goram, klos, negri just a few off the top of my nut. They were the days.


8.) 08 Dec 2017 19:59:52
selling and buying shres doesn't bring money to rangers only the sale of new shares does


9.) 08 Dec 2017 22:56:29
Maybe I’m different Fod, but I was a teenager during the glory days and remember them fondly, especially Parma game, Amato header in 2-2 game, Gaza diving header in 96 etc. but when I rock up at ibrox these days or count the hours till we kick off on the tele, the feelings still run deep and I have the same excitement in my bones, sure it would be brilliant to be where we were in the 90’s but I’m absolutely buzzing for tomorrow and I started this week flat as a pancake at the thought of Derek McInnes being handed a three year deal. We can get 2nd this season I have no doubt, smart investment of the £800k that we were so happy to splurge on McInnes and a united support behind Murty will see us to 2nd and hopefully we get off to a good start tomorrow!


10.) 08 Dec 2017 23:55:37

Ed this slipped in banter 2 before &DK1 answered hope you can repost

DK can you please tell us the hugh progress achieved by the board. All I've seen is unharmony, disarray, mistakes. Pedro, the Mc Innes saga, the overdraft facility oops another loan, the takeover panel verdict, DK statement before the semi telling GM doesn't matter if you win your not getting the job, AJ ahead of the curve and more court appearances than Andy Murray. That's just some of the the off the field incidents and don't let me get started about on the field ones. So where the hugh progress DK

Isle of mull

1.) 25 Apr 2018 08:56:26
Mull

1. We are still trading despite continuing to run at a loss each season
2. We are 10 points shy of Celtic and have had chances to match them this season
3. Serious money has been invested in Ibrox
4. Serious investment at Auchenhowie
5. We have a coaching and scouting set up
6. We have brought in a serious DOF to build the squad for the future (not just for the next result)
7. We have got rid of Ashley and his asset stripping pals
8. We have a kit deal that will earn more than 5p for our club
9. We are now in a position where we can issue more shares to attract serious investors that want to see the club successful
10. The club is near a position where there might be alternatives the King with money.

Top 10 improvements that mean that we will be playing in the same league next season and have an improved playing squad that should get even closer to Celtic

If that’s not progress for you, you must have green tinted specs!


2.) 25 Apr 2018 09:00:31
DK17 well said whilst the current board are NOT great they are 100% better than the last and OFF the field have done relatively well. If only they could appoint a decent Manager is that asking for to much :-)


3.) 25 Apr 2018 10:37:22
1)we are now only trading with the help of Close brothers loan secured against everything but Ibrox stadium and Auchenhowie
2)main reason they are worse this season 7 home defeats
3)name the projects, I can't see great investment
4)as above
5) yes we are better off than before
6)5 on loan players is that our future
7)agreed but your name sake has used some amount of money in personal court appearances then admitted he paid Ashley to leave
8)lets wait and see the audited accounts
9)No we are not takeover panel will stop us til King makes his offer
10) Name names
Not green tinted glasses but the truth DK17


4.) 25 Apr 2018 11:40:26
Mull at it again with the 'charlatan board' suggested posts.

I've said it before and i'll say it again, you're 100% one of them.


5.) 25 Apr 2018 11:46:22
Isle of Mull how much of the loan facility have rangers used from close brothers


6.) 25 Apr 2018 11:49:14
Its nice to see a post with a bit of positivity DK17. After all the doom and gloom recently its good to look at the bigger picture. Your 10 reasons are spot on imo.


7.) 25 Apr 2018 12:31:30
Another massive positive is the progress of the youth teams. Lots of youth internationals now, and they’re getting some excellent results.


8.) 25 Apr 2018 12:53:50
Things are better than they were but this season could've been so much better. Although investment has been made, a lot seems to have been wasted. Pena, Herrera etc. Relying on loans on and off the park isn't exactly ideal either


 

 

13 Apr 2018 09:21:22
Bates wanted £7.5k a week we offered £2.5k now the Jim Traynor show is on the road under the alias of Gary Ralston. We won't bow to his wage demands. How much are we paying Pedro's numpies? . We lost a good young Scottish player but don't worry we will sign some foreigner on £15k we no heart and no tackling ability.

Isle of mull

1.) 13 Apr 2018 09:56:35
7.5k is a lot of cash for someone that probably would sit on our bench next season if we get the right players in


2.) 13 Apr 2018 10:24:47
There is no way he’s getting anywhere near £7k / wk in Germany. Isle of Mull is right, fake news story created by Trainor, how much will it cost to replace the boy, and some still believe a £12m bid was turned down for Morelos


3.) 13 Apr 2018 12:24:37
oh the Morelos bid is up to 12m now - - must be inflation :-) or a Seville calculator in play!


4.) 13 Apr 2018 12:39:22
@IoM - can you honestly say hand on heart that Bates was worth £7.5k a week? He was still developing and had a lot still to learn.
Good luck to the boy, it’s his choice to move on. There’s better players than him have left.


5.) 13 Apr 2018 14:46:51
Bill if you can believe a story in the record that he wanted £7.5k per/ wk, then I can use the story there was a £12m bid.
I personally think the young boy has been hung out to dry, whilst rangers come out very unprofessional and telling a newspaper the wage demands, very amateurish, spiteful, and childish


6.) 13 Apr 2018 18:10:54
Don't really understand what the fuss is over bates. He really wasn't that good. We've got mccrorie. There's 4 better defender's in Scotland. McKenna, john souttar, the other souttar up at ross county and the boy caulker at Dundee. Strange time for it to be announced, bit like dodgy Dave's announcement. Weird timing


7.) 13 Apr 2018 20:09:23
UJ more to the point do you think the following are worth £7.5k a week because they are certain on that amount and more
Fabio Cardross
Lee Hodson
Bruno Alves
Jordan Rossiter
Eduardo Herrera.
Get these guys off the wage bill and Bates £7.5k a week would be a shoe in. Young Scottish, fast, hard tackling, can read the game / danger we'll worth the money if the above get that and some get so much more k


8.) 13 Apr 2018 21:54:01
Did you say fast? 🙄


9.) 14 Apr 2018 07:47:52
Faster than any on my list who are on lot more money than he wanted


 

 

16 Feb 2018 11:38:07
Should the board be held responsible if (a big if) we don't fulfill the terms of the loan while according to Andy Devlin we have rejected £9m for AM. Who to believe here Andy saying we knocked back £9m or the board saying we now have overdraft facilities. Well the second one been blown out the water by the document at company House, and the first one too me is bull. For the Chinese to pay £9m it would cost them £18m (government have a 100%tariff on foreign transfers) and the team already have their 4 foreign players. Why must we put up with so much bull, didn't Dave King not get elected on a transparency ticket.

Isle of mull

1.) 16 Feb 2018 12:49:46
Its coming up to season ticket renewal that's why we are being fed bull. I have previsouly stated my opinion on the previous "bids" for Morelos and my opinion doesn't change with the latest £9m bid we have ko'd apparently😂😂


2.) 16 Feb 2018 13:08:33
The clear rules state Chinese clubs can include five foreign players in a match day squad and have four on the pitch. They can have more in overall squad but not include on match day. This covers for injury and suspensions .
The 100% tariff is held in a trust and returned to clubs once player completes length off deal or is sold on.
It was set up to limit clubs paying big wages like what happened re Teves


3.) 16 Feb 2018 14:54:11
What document at companies house?


4.) 16 Feb 2018 18:26:10
Here’s Calvin55 our with husbands statement that we haven’t knocked back 9mil are you going to retract that statement when it’s confirmed we have just like you did the last time the bids were made you would’ve thought you would’ve learnt from the last time Before you spout off

🙌🏻 Well said Coldo!


8.) 16 Feb 2018 23:42:21
Gersman we didn't ko a £9m bid because we never recieved a £9m bid or a £8m bid or a £8.4m bid or a £7m bid!


9.) 17 Feb 2018 00:38:58
Calvin how do you know we haven’t I’m not saying we have or haven’t as I can only go with what’s getting reported but you don’t know this either so stop making it out as if you do unless you have proof we didn’t knock them bids back


10.) 17 Feb 2018 00:39:46
Plus Calvin it not rangers that are saying we’ve knocked this amount it that’s amount back it’s media that’s saying it so stop making it out it’s out club

Don’t even go there with him gersman. It’s the same gumph he spouts all of the time


 

 

18 Jan 2018 10:10:01
Does anyone think we are top heavy with midfield players now. I can count 10 going for 3 or 4 places. Only 2 if we play 2 wingers and 2 front men

Isle of mull

1.) 18 Jan 2018 11:50:38
Not really Isle of Mull when you consider the loan players are not ours and the 10 that you count some of which are dross! So I wouldn't be allowing too many players to leave this window.


2.) 18 Jan 2018 12:29:01
Take out Rossiter and Kranjcar I don’t count them in our midfield. I think Kranjcar should never play again and just retire. I do hope Rossiter gets thru his injury worry’s as he would be a great player.


 

 

09 Jan 2018 07:26:57
I have no information on our finance state - fact.
I have said about the next 2 to 3 weeks without any money won't help - fact
The JM deal highlighted our lack of spending money, to me (other will have a different take on it) it screamed a company in distress.
I think in our accounts we need to find £12.5m this summer for previous transfers (not 100% sure about that figure but we owe a lot) .
I am not saying we we go into administration but with the King takeover panel verdict and no money coming in, I can't rule it out.
UJ will be along soon to put my mind at rest

Isle of mull

1.) 09 Jan 2018 09:33:40
Exactly Mull, you have no inforamtion. So why are you all over the finance pages claiming you know the in's and out's of the clubs financial state? You know hee haw.


2.) 09 Jan 2018 10:23:46
The only things I put in the financial pages are fact from accounts bear Mode you should try it mate

Explain why DKing is a genius he can't get his money out of SA to pay for the TOP vertict, surely a genius would have his money on tap oh unless he's playing a blinder and not adhering to the law of the land. I was going to say pure genius but I would then be called a Mick, oh the money just resting in his account oh Father Ted I'm caught.

Unbecoming of a Rangers player. His excuse was he got a Motherwell ticket but they never sold that area so they handed that area back. All he had to do was contact Motherwell and I'm sure the was One spare seat in the Well end. Guilty as charged.
