Confirmed. Pena is in Glasgow. 🇲🇽🇲🇽🇲🇽🇲🇽.


1.) 01 Jun 2017 14:50:45
Do you know if he will be announced by the club today?

2.) 01 Jun 2017 15:02:10
Naww he isnae. He is leaving Mexico as we speak, heading to Detroit and then across to Amsterdam then heading to Glasgow.

3.) 01 Jun 2017 15:17:26
that was a quick flight, he was only spotted at an airport in mexico 2hrs ago. seen he's stopping in Detriot, flying from there to Amsterdam then Amsterdam to Glasgow, so will hopefully have him announced over the weekend! things are finally looking on the up!

4.) 01 Jun 2017 15:31:31
Things starting to move fast

5.) 01 Jun 2017 16:15:39
Apologies. Picture that was sent to me was him in airport still Mexico. Jumped the gun lads. All this excitement is too much for me.

6.) 01 Jun 2017 18:54:42
a player who is been known for having a party lifestyle and he's stopping in Amsterdam haha it'll be Tuesday before he arrives in Glasgow.

7.) 01 Jun 2017 18:58:57
Never seen or heard of the guy before last week so don't know what to think although like the manager a gamble again.

8.) 01 Jun 2017 20:13:25
How many people had heard of Wanyama, Van Dijk etc before they'd signed up for that lot though? The manager knows him well and clearly thinks he's what we're missing

9.) 01 Jun 2017 20:16:51
Football wise, Pena gets good press in Mexico. He seems to enjoy himself but if he is half as good as the last two players that enjoyed a drink that it was a privilege to watch, (Baxter and Gazza), I will be one very happy bear!



21 May 2017 08:10:56
Daily record reports that jack will be announced next Sunday after the cup final and we are also looking at Patterson from hearts. I know he was out injured but wasn't he about to sign for Wigan for about 1million? Be good business if we got him for free.


1.) 21 May 2017 09:57:39
Patterson is brilliant player, would be amazing signing for free happy days! Fair play to pc for taking best talent in scotland he's obviously done his homework

2.) 21 May 2017 10:08:46
Only concern with the likes of jack and Patterson, are they players who will get us near Celtic. Very much doubt it!

3.) 21 May 2017 11:05:02
I hear you Ronnie but bringing in players to fervid closer to Celtic will cost a few million and we don't have that at the moment. But if we can bring in guys like this then there will be a sell on value that we can reinvest. There is no quick fix now with an open cheque book. Pedro has to bring in wisely, certainly a lot more wiser than MW did last season.

4.) 21 May 2017 11:14:09
RonnieR9 I suppose you want kante and dani alves instead? Jack and Patterson are good players much better than what we have this is a step in the right direction. You lot are never happy lol

5.) 21 May 2017 11:19:19
Every right not to be happy with the garbage I've been watching for the last few years. They are an improvement on the current imposters but still way short of what is required to close the gap.

6.) 21 May 2017 11:42:08
While guys like Jack and Patterson might be better than what we have, (although in Patterson's case, especially after his injury, that is debatable), we will not overtake Celtic with a team full of Scots, some of who are no more than journeymen!

To compete and to progress in Europe we need a mixture of quality overseas Internationalists and the best young Scottish players, (some of who might already be at Rangers) .

I for one will be delighted if we sign Alves and another proven centre back since that is where a lot of our problems were this season. We also need a quality midfield and I am just hoping that Pedro can bring in some real class in that department since guys like Halliday and Holt will take us no where. Up front we need a younger player in the style of Miller and a top quality winger.

If rumours are correct and McKay goes then we will need two wingers.

So let's hope that there really is £13m available for an influx of quality to replace the wasters that Warburton signed.

7.) 21 May 2017 11:46:57
Ryan jack is a done deal, player wants to wait till after final before announcing.

8.) 21 May 2017 13:21:28
jack and paterson will be an upgrade on what we have and already established players in this league.

celtic signed armstrong and mackay steven and the fans thought it was a wrong one too but look at armstrong for them now even though macay steven never worked out it was still good business

im concerned if the transfer budget is true that it will be partly used to pay players off to leave? i could be wrong on that one and it might be kept seperate but it will eat a bit of money up if it does.

9.) 21 May 2017 13:29:25
I totally agree with Ronnie r9

10.) 21 May 2017 17:12:50
I reckon that Jack, Rossiter, if he can stay fit and two top quality attacking midfield players, one of them with a proven goalscoring record plus two new centre backs and the young lads that played today plus a winer to replace MCKAY, (assuming that he goes), the players that remain, (assuming that it is just Crooks, Windass and Holt), and our two full backs, (not Hodson), and the young lads and Miller, Krancjar and Wilson, and we will have a good enough squad to challenge the manky mob!

11.) 21 May 2017 18:13:22
Wow, that's really going to take the shine off our treble 😯

12.) 21 May 2017 18:17:24
Does patterson mean the end of tav then? No sure a guy coming back from a near career ending injury is a better option than him

13.) 21 May 2017 18:19:10
Jack and Patterson are 1 better than what we have and 2 makes good business sense. Both already wanted and imo will only get better! So sign up for 3-4 yrs and if we wanted sell in 2-3 for a total profit that could be in the region of £5m combined.
In the past we have got some decent players from these Clubs and what i'd give for another home signing like Davey Robertson!

14.) 21 May 2017 18:35:38
Celtic will win the SPL by another 30 points. Rangers will be lucky to finish 4th.

15.) 21 May 2017 23:10:11
celtic will probably win the league by 15+ but i expect rangers to finish 2nd

16.) 22 May 2017 11:41:01
look in trying to catch celtic one thing is true all we need to do is be consistantly better than the rest of the spl which all of the players we have been linked with will do except lafferty.
if we are better than the rest then the campaign for the spl will be down to the old firms and if bth teams are on a winning streak then those games can go either way but if we get better than the rest celtic won't be that far in front of us points wise if at all.

seasons like that don't happen twice in a row and celtic will slip up agianst 1- or two teams next year aswell as a couple of draws.

17.) 23 May 2017 15:23:56
put it this way yes the points gap was terrible this year and money wise there is no comparison but all they did was to sign three players and the drss we beat last year turned into the invincibles so who is to say we can't do the same with a few good signings!

people on here are sooo negative and can never see the glass as half full

Can I interject with a different point of view than the naysayers.

Yes today is disappointing and the line up looks like it was almost full strength but we have to remember today would have been the first time these guys were on a pitch together and they will need to get use to each other.

Today's game is all about fitness and not how many we can score. Let's judge manager and players ten games or so into the real season and not pass comment on some poxy closed doors match.

All this naysaying makes us sound like Celtic fans.


1.) 18 Jul 2017 20:07:03
100% correct

2.) 18 Jul 2017 21:46:43
James, good comments, unfortunately by 10 games in the league could be over!

3.) 18 Jul 2017 23:40:01
Yes it takes lots of time together to compete with the mighty St. Johnston. Be positive it was only 1-0 and Rangers have only spent £7mill so far. can't see why fans are worried?



01 Jul 2017 20:07:27
I'll probably get shot down for this and. It's that long ago I would shot someone down for what I'm about to say but:

I think it's time to let by gones be by gones where Naismith etc are involved. The lads came out and said he made a mistake and we should accept that, if there's a chance we could get him we should go for it.

Think he has a similar mentality and attitude to Kenny Miller and he would be a great addition to our first team let alone our squad.

Let's move on from the past now lads and forget comments made in ignorance and welcome him back. ( if the opportunity is there) .


1.) 01 Jul 2017 22:24:34
I totally agree I want rangers challenging this season and he's a player that will add to that if the price is right tho

2.) 01 Jul 2017 23:45:34
Totally agree. He obviously splits the fans 50/ 50 I think but if he came back and done well enough for us to start winning trophies again he'd change some naysayers minds. We need another creative player badly as well, whether it's him or Dorrans, because when Niko went off the other night we didn't look like creating anything. I think Niko is a cracking player but I think it'd be a big ask for him to play the majority of the season because of his fitness and injury problems.

3.) 02 Jul 2017 02:35:14
His comments regarding his departure bring a different light to things for me and I would welcome both him and McGregor back into the fold. It looks like they had a proposal that was turned down by Duff and Phelps that might just have resulted in something different happening with our club but they had already decided our future along with Green and Co!

4.) 02 Jul 2017 04:42:49
What a lot of utter crap. That horrible wee so so and declared us dead and said he owed us nothing. Why is it only now he comes out with that when he is struggling at the moment. Why didn't he say this when he was playing for Everton? He is a grown man responsible for his actions and words he knew exactly what he said. He didn't need to come out with that or hold a press conference. McGregor, Davis and Lafferty kept their mouths shut when leaving Naismith could easily have done the same.

5.) 02 Jul 2017 05:33:16
"He's struggling at the moment" wtf are you on about lol he's definitely not struggling! He was ill advised and made a mistake. what he said was wrong, he's admitted that.
Would he improve us? 100% he would. If he wants to come back and help us progress I'd cheer him on

6.) 02 Jul 2017 12:19:59
The guy made a mistake get over It! Everyone of has had made mistakes over the years an for a good few of us pretty big ones! Look at how much Miller was hated when went to dark side an now he can do no wrong naisy would improve the team so don't really see how that's a bad thing
It's about time a lot people got out of the dark ages an stopped being so childish! What happened is long in the past get over It!

Rant over lol that's just my opinion an no doubt I'll get some abuse for it

7.) 02 Jul 2017 12:39:10
Not often I agree with Bengy25 but I think he's saying the right things to suit his own agenda.

8.) 02 Jul 2017 15:49:16

He is struggling as he wasn't in Norwich's starting 11 near the end of the season and sometimes didn't make it off the bench. He also hasn't made it off the bench in the last few games for Scotland. In simple terms he is Struggling to get a game for club or country



09 Jun 2017 06:38:24
So far we have alves, jack, dalcio (loan), cardozo and if permits etc go through. Pena, Herrera, Colombian lad and in top of that candieas, dorrans and maybe walker from hearts. That's 10 in total unless Iv missed anyone, I think it's time we start looking to clear the decks a bit, I know it'll be hard to move on but if we let clubs take the deadwood for free at least it would free up the wages but I'm hopeful we can get a bit of cash in for these guys. The squad as a whole is now shaping up nicely and now we can fully judge Pedro as a manager now he has got husband own players and been backed by the board.


1.) 09 Jun 2017 07:12:48
does anyone know where the money has come from to fund all these signings?

I find it hard to believe warbs had the money pedro is being backed with, yet truly believed he could win SPL with accrington stanley and league 2 players - ok he's not the best manager but surely he's not that stupid?

has DK had this money all along or has someone come in to invest that's being kept quiet.

heard a whisper someone from middle east are funding this and they had a say in pedro being hired from quatar

anyway absl delighted with the optimism finnaly surrounding our great club- young columbian lad sounds exciting as does penã and i can't wait to see big bruno win some headers!

2.) 09 Jun 2017 07:39:17
Season ticket money i would imagine DK did say all St money would be invested in squad

3.) 09 Jun 2017 07:55:54
I agree James 2016 about offloading as much of the dead wood from last season as we can as soon as we can but probably most of them apart from MOH maybe we would try and punt to lower league English clubs and their transfer window doesn't open till 1st July. Several League One clubs interested in Windass and Scunthorpe want Crooks back but there would be several others I would get rid of before them. Kiernan would be top of the list for me but he's been nowhere near training this week so maybe he's been paid off already. If he has OK but surely there's some poor deluded fool out there who thinks he's a good defender and would be prepared to waste a few hundred thousand on him (are you listening, Warbs? )

4.) 09 Jun 2017 09:13:41
I believe the money had always been there. However the issue for King was that he didn't trust Warburton with the money. This was down to his purchase of MOH and then his dealings in the summer transfer window last year.



01 Jun 2017 18:58:07
What about ash Taylor? He's a freebie, surely better than what we have.




10 Sep 2016 21:01:39
Too any of the idiot fans who may read this and had anything to do with the distruction of the facilities at parkhead. Do you not realise that this in turn only hurts our club? Rangers will have to pay for the repairs and may also have to pay a fine for your behaviour. As painful as it was to see us get hammered by them today there can be no excusing this. Hope you are all proud of yourselves tonight.


1.) 10 Sep 2016 21:21:25
To add to what James said; your total whoppers as well.

2.) 10 Sep 2016 21:24:39
Rangers won't pay for the repairs. Celtic will. Rangers will pay for their own repairs after the match on Hogmany. As always had been the case. Taken care of internally.

3.) 10 Sep 2016 22:11:07
Still doesn't excuse the morons we just can't behave.

4.) 10 Sep 2016 22:39:52
Ah the old "eye for eye" thing is it? Still makes us look like fuds.

5.) 10 Sep 2016 22:19:03
it's terrible, no excuses but again no cameras in toilets so you don't know who's done the damage and who's done their business.

6.) 10 Sep 2016 22:57:20
Doesn't make it acceptable montypf! We should b above that nonsense.

7.) 10 Sep 2016 22:58:53
Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't David Murray bill them for repairs many moons ago? I'm sure dermot will return the favour.

8.) 11 Sep 2016 00:24:33
Rangers should offer to pay the bill. Celtic shouldn't pay for our morons trashing their ground.

9.) 11 Sep 2016 00:26:37
Here here james 2016,our fans won't buy replica kits because the club doesn't make enough money from them (rightly so) but some of them do this at parkhead which costs our club money! Have these morons no brains? We don't need or want there sort anywhere near rangers and ibrox! let's get these fans banned.

10.) 11 Sep 2016 04:54:39
I think you answered your own question there Warburtonthefifteenth! We appear to have more than our fair share of neanderthals!

RonnieR9 can you explain that comment? McLean knows the Scottish game inside out. He's better than what we have at the moment. As excited as I am about Pena and the other signings how do we know that they will hit the ground running and settle immediately?

If dorrans wants the move that badly he can push from his end. Personally I'd put all our efforts into getting walker in. Knows the league and the opposition inside out and has an eye for goal. As excited as I am about all the knew signings not one of them (apart from jack) has played here and it might take a bit of time to adjust.

Must admit, if moult can scored that amount if goals for Motherwell then it stands to reason he can score the same amount if not more for us. Happened with wee nacho when we took him from Dundee. Also think if we go to 750k for walker that should be enough.

Here here hurricanes. Thank god someone agrees with me. Yes he made a lot of saves last season but if you look at the shots on target against us then the law of averages suggest that any keeper would make a percentage of these saves. His postioning sense is atrocious, all you need to do is look at the semi final against the mutants and look where he was at the first goal and his position as tav gave away the penalty. If mcgregor was available then I'd bring him back in a heart beat.

Fully agree. Not a fan of foderingham. Only looked decent last season because we were so poor in defence.
