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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

The only things I put in the financial pages are fact from accounts bear Mode you should try it mate

Oh how I could cry reading most of the posts on here about we need,
Sugar daddy
More investment
Ashley so sports direct can be shown round Europe.
Arab investors
Russian investors
Please please stop.

We take in £30m that could go a lot higher If we get European football. We are by a country mile the second biggest football budget in Scotland if managed right we can compete with them. We need to get to the summer that's our next major task. Remember King is the one one who is giving us loans now if he walks Takeover panel verdict) we are in trouble.

Well said Mulloch, clearly there aren't many business minds on here. Recently FIRB quoted Struth. I shall repeat this. "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". Never a truer word said. I read and repeat these words everyday as a mantra. I do not encourage blind faith nor do I dismiss the many mistakes the current board have made. However they must start learning from them. I'm sure most will agree that if instead of Pedro we had employed a manager who can get the most out of these tools and 8-10 million summer outlay had been spent wiser then we would not have dropped so many silly points then we could actually have been top of the league given the season Celtic have had. Off the pitch they are light years ahead of us as they have been run prudently for a long while. On the pitch while they are in significantly better shape they are not light years ahead due to the glass ceiling of Scottish football. They have been consistently in the Champions League and could easily afford to spend £10m+ on a single player but they still can't convince big names to come here.

Keep Believing.

2.) 28 Dec 2017 10:28:47
Agree. We will always spend money. It's spending it wisely that's the key.
On the park things can change quickly if you get things right.

You don't win a league with money sitting in the bank.

3.) 28 Dec 2017 12:57:55
I agree but King promised us as much money needed to be challenging Celtic, whatever it takes he said when he came in, there was no mention of it going to be loans.

4.) 28 Dec 2017 19:35:14
Alex, King did promise that and they gave Pedro more than Warburton to spend, hoping he would be the man to do it. sadly he was a tube and it didn’t happen that way but considering our lack of financial income would I not be right in thinking if he didn’t give us the money as loans then we would be breaching FIFA’s fair play rules? If that’s so then I’d rather be pumped out in the first round by some part time “Borat” team than not be allowed to play at all 😏

It's now becoming a joke, from guys wanting it all to go back to the souness days (clyde phone in) to Ashley ploughing in millions. We had our chance when we were in the fourth tier. We started at the bottom but unfortunately ally Mc coist wanted us to be "the big club". Remember C Green saying most of our youth team will had played a 100 games for the top team before we got back to the PL. That went well, ally wanted a team of seasoned pro's in case we played a PL team in a cup competition. We have the second biggest turn over in Scotland if only we lived within our means. A good British manager with a team of good British players would guarantee us second place every year and something to build on. Let's get our head out the sand, live within our means and move forward. We might be second but they might slip up and year on year we will get stronger.

Surely we can now go and get Greg Doherty from Hamilton now with the money we haven't used in the Murphy deal. As most on here say you don't win championship with money laying in the bank.

I heard the Brighton manager on Clyde last night, and he was happy enough to let Jamie move up here, he wasn't featuring in any of his squads and they were doing all they could to help the lad move to his heroes. Don't think we have the money for the down payment.

He played on Saturday, but is now leaving with no pay off. Aye that's the way mercenary footballers work, walking away from over £100k

Someone or more most be leaving for us to afford a million fee. As I've informed this site on many occasions we need £7.2m to get us to summer of 2019 and the only director that is putting up the money is Dave King can't actually see him finding another million for JM while he looking for £11m plus to get the takeover panel off his back

I don't want us to sell anyone cheap but bidding 300k for Doherty and Jones then asking for £3-6m for JW. Just not going to happen. All I'm saying is be realistic. Anyway our main problem is getting Alves off the wage bill then we could get even more players in and Bruno wages would cover all our loans deals

We offer £300k for good from Hamilton (a scot and rangers man) which is about a third of his value. Then come to the wacky idea that JW is worth between 10-20 times good worth. good would run all day for us, JW looks a player for 20min in some games.

Would we pass the financial fair play rules? . We don't live within our mean Gary, so your being hypocritical. We used the bank money during the 90 and 00 and loved ever minute of it. So let's look in the mirror first before firing bullets.

Yes thank god for Dave King all those promises, the court cases, the Ashley deal, and now on a count down to the cold shoulder from all businesses because of his reckless ways. Oh I nearly forgot his £50m family inheritance but that was just another promise.
